thfc ship?- gave orders that the airtight
compartments be closed to prevent the
listing ship sinking and that the magazine
be flooded to avert further explosions.
Temporary quarters ashore were ar
ranged for the wounded and sixty citizens
volunteered and hurried In launches to
the relief of those on the Ill-fated ship.
Borne Of the volunteers' were unable to
stand the sickening sight which met their
gaze on the Pennington. As fast as the
wounded Could be removed they were hur
ried in ambulances, carriages, wagons and
automobiles to the' hospitals. For a long
time the hot sfeam prevented access "to
the space between decks where most of
the dead bodies lay, and It was not until
late In the afternoon that the last were
removed from the boiler room. Several
bodies Were so tightly wedged In by a bulk
head that the woodwork had to be hewn
away to fre them. Most of the bodies
yet unidentified have been mangled 8,1
Tnost beyond hope of recognition.
Boiler Reaarded Innate.
The boiler which exploded. It Is said,
waa regarded as unsafe. Commander
Toung stated that during a recent return
from Honolulu the . steam pressure was
.kept reduced In that. particular, one. When
the explosion . occurred Engineer Kelson
was Inspecting the boilers as a preliminary
Co the vessel's leaving port. He was not
seriously Injured. Officers and men who
were able to assist In rescue acted in a
brave and collected manner. Pumps were
manned to ,kvp the water from the upper
compartments, the- magazine flooded and
men fought their way through the steam
Into the darkened hold to search for their
comrades. In the worst danger and when
It was feared the ship would sink before
It could be beached, the young officers and
men stuck manfully to their posts. Albert
H. Ryan of ttjls city, who was rowing near
the ship at the time ut the accident,
plunged Into the water and rescued sev

from Ban Diego only the day before the
Bennington arrived at that port on Its
way to San Francisco. The monitor, when
near Port Harford, dropped one of Its
propellers and became almost unmanage
able. It made Its way to a sheltered cove
at Port Harford and the Bennington, then
at 8a n Idego, was ordered to go to the
aid of the disabled monitor and tow It to
this port. It was expected that the gun
boat would sail from the southern port on
its errand today.
The Bennington had four cylindrical
straight-way boilers, commonly called loco
motive gunboat boilers. Each boiler was
17 feet ( Inches long and ( feet 9 Inches in
diameter. They were originally designed
to carry 160 pounds of steam, but the last
log shows that the safety valves were set
for 145 pounds and that It carried from 135
to 140 pounds of steam In cruising. The
boilers were fifteen years old, according
to records In the department, but were
retubed In lfmS-04. The admiral of the Pa
cific fleet In October, 1904, reported to the
Navy department that the boilers we're In
need of repairs, but that the repairs were
not urgent. A report from the engineer
officer of the ship received at the depart
ment about the same time was that the
pollers '.generally , were In poor condition,
but, the Internal conditions of the boilers
were good. A detailed report on the condi
tion of the boilers was received by the de
partment last March. In May last the
Bennington was sent to Mare Island yard,
when temporary repairs were made on Its
boilers to put It In cruising condition. It is
stated at the bureau of steam engineering
that there has been nothing In the reports
coming to the department to show that tho
boilers were In an unsafe condition.
Kens at Washington.
WASHINGTON, July 21.-Offlcials of the
Navy department and naval officers on
duty In Washington were appalled today
when the news same from San Dit'gD, tell
ing of the disaster which overcame the
gunboat Bennington. Their first informa
tion was received from press dispatches.
Later a telegram came from Commander
Luclen Young, captain of the Bennington,
announcing the explosion and stating that
nearly everybody was killed or wounded. .
Lieutenant Commander H. B. Wilson of
the bureau of navigation, who baa charge
of the assignment of enl'.sted men, upon
learning of the explosion Immediately set
about to prepare a list of the ship's crew,
which subsequently was made public.
The Bennington was' under orders for
Panama, where it waa being sent to relieve
the Princeton, and was to have sailed
direct from San Diego for the isthmus, but
a report was received at the department
announcing that the Wyoming had dis
abled a propeller and orders were sent for
the Bennington to proceed to Port Harford
and convoy the Wyoming from that port
to San Francisco. Just as a press bulle
tin was taken Into the bureau of navlgtiV
tlon today announcing the explosion, a
telegram was received from Commander
Young that he was about to sail northward

THREE-FIFTHS MUST SIGN
Majority Property Owners ot Peti
tion Necessary for Grading,
Bay City Councilmrn.
Councilmen have decided formally to an
nounce Tuesday night that no more grad
ing of streets or change of grades will
be authorized In 1906 unless the abutting
property owners sign a three-fifths petition
and agree to pay all the costs.
Low ebb in the general fund Is partially
responsible for the abandonment of the
grading plan given by the new charter, In
which case the property owner pays one-
half and the city half the expenses, pro
vided the work is not headed off by a two
fifths petition in protest. But the under
lying cause for passing up the policy lies
In the fact that under the charter three
courftilmen must be appointed as a board
to determine damages for all grading of
streets and changes of grade. Where the
council ordered the work on the re
quest of iwo or three interested parties
as many as 120 property owners knew noth
ing aouut It. until the appraisers came
around. Then they found tueir damages
would be great and demanded heavy sums
In return. As each property owner had a
vote the councilmen were scared and were
not glud they had the particular Job,
which is one of the new duties Imposed
by reason of the 1125 a month salary.
At first It was proposed to switch the ap
praisers around so no man would have to
deal with his own ward, but the reflection
came that the city at large nominates and
elects councilmen. Thereupon It was
agreed to quit the initiative on grading
propositions and require a three-fifths pe
tition before anything would be done.

WOODWARD'S PAVILION, BAN FRAN
CISCO, July 21. Jimmy Britt Is still the
lightweight charrfplori of the world. He
was awarded the decision over Kid Sulli
van tonight In a twenty-round contest in
which Britt ""was" the bright and shining
star. He Vnitpnlnted Sullivan In nearly
every round, and although he did not
knock out Vh0 liusky youngster from Wash
ington, he demonstrated beyond all doubt
his superiority.' As the referee said: "It
was a stakehorse against a selling plater."
Britt gave a marvelous exhibition of
Scientific boxing. Ills generalship was
perfect and during the whole time Bulllvan
never landed an effective blow. He did
very little lending, and did most of'the
fighting In the clinches, when he would
play his right against Brltt's ribs. Sulli
van made a number- of fierce rushes, but
Brltt's clover footwork kept him out of
danger and a straight left to the nose
would straighten Bulllvan up and stop
his impetuosity.. Britt was very careful all
through the fight, as he said: "Why should
I with my superior -Kk 111 mix It with a man
like Sullivan who knows nothing except
roughing It? I am confident that I am
his muster at that game, but I had too
much at stake to take a chance. Sullivan
Is a good, hard fighter, but he does not
possess the necessary skill to make a
Al Herford, Sullivan's manager, said:
"It was a good light and Britt earned
the decision. Sullivan injured his hand in
the tenth round and- that handicapped him
a great deal. Sullivan says his hand is
The general opinion Is that If Sullivan
had had four hands and did not use them
any bettor than he did his two tonight he
could not have whipped Britt. The odds
were 10 to 4 against Sullivan.

bleeding freely at the close of the round.
Britt was given the decision.

office of the county clerk the scalps of
three young gray wolves. Deputy County
Clerk Dan Butler carefully examined the
scalps, w"hlch comprised ears, eyes and
nose, and pronounced them genuine. He
accordingly made out the necessary papers
which will get Mr. Heap $15 from the state

that kind. That was the winter It got
so cold that one wolf was found frosen In
