TERRIFIC BOILER "HIEL O STOW.
One Han Killed Outright-The Life of
Anothet Despaired of-One Blore Se
rlounly and others Slightly Injured.
Yesterday the works of tho EU wan Sul?
phuric Acid and Superphosphate Company, on
Town Creek, three miles from the city, became
the scene of one of those unfortunate accidents
against wldch it seems no human precautions can
I provide, AS if to guard against accident, the old
boiler had been replaced a few days before by a
I new one fifiy-slx inches In diameter and double
.Hued, which was used for the first time on Mon?
day last. Instead of the single fireman usually
at work, two experienced men were engaged in
attending to this duty. The engineers and all thc
workmen were at their post, little suspecting the
terrible catastrophe about to happen. At hair
past l o'clock a violent explosion shook _the
bnilding, and the Apartments near the engine
were filled with dense volumes of steam. As
soon as the steam had sufficiently cleared off, the
assembled workmen entered the apartment and
commenced to Investigate the injury done. Geo.
W. Shok es, tho machinist, was found dead, hav?
ing been killed outright by the steam and scald?
ing water, his body showing by the marks upon
lt the terrible violence of the explosion. Mr. Jno.
L. WUliams, the engineer, was also so terribly
scalded that he ls not expected to live. Captain
Horace A. Pratt was likewise badly scalded.
Neither fireman was injured, and only a few other
persons were scalded in a trifling manner.
Upon examining the boiler lt was found that
the two flues, each eighteen Inches In diameter,
running lengthways throngh it, had both explod?
ed, each driving out both Its ends, where they
were riveted in the boiler, with terrific violence.
The four heads were driven against the brick
wall or the apartment as If from a cannon, and
the rush of steam consequent thereon had occa?
sioned the distressing casualties above mentioned.
The matter was quickly t eported to Coroner
Taft, and at 5 o'clock an inquest was held over
the body or the deceased machinist. In the ex?
amination lt was shown that a few minutes be?
fore the accident there was plenty of water In
tue boiler, and the engine running under a pres?
sure of seventy pounds of steam. It was proved
that they usually worked with from sixty Jtosev
enty pounds of steam, and by the^testimony of
experienced workmen, that the boiler could carry
one hundred pounds with case. Under these
circumstances, and not thc slightest negligence
having been shown, the Jory brought in a verdict
or death from an accidental explosion at the Etl
The boiler can now be seen In its original posi?
tion, the heads of the flues being blown out at
both ends. A partition-was blown down, and all
the sashes broken in the engine room. There was
no other damage done to the works except that
by the water and the displacement of a few
bricks. No possible cause can be attributed for
the accident except a flaw in the boiler flues.
NUISANCES ABATED.-A descent was made
yesterday afternoon by Officers Levitt and Truall
on several houses of ill fame that infest the city,
not far from King street. Thirteen of the in?
mates were arrested and brought down to the
Detective office, where an examination took
place. "They were bound over to appear at the
next term of the Court of General Sessions.
A PROSPECT OF CHEAPER TELEGRAPHING.
A few days ago, lu New York, some extraordina?
ry experiments were made with Little's improved 1
automatic telegraph. Messages were transmitted 1
to and from Washington as a test. These mes- (
sages contained a thousand words each, and
were delivered within the minute. By Mr. Little's
new Invention, two thousand word3 per minute
can be transmited over a No. 5 wire, between
New York and Washington, and one thousand
words per minute on a No. 8 wire. Under the
new system, a message costing a dollar by the I 1
Western Union line will cost about seventeen ' 1
A QUESTION OF COLOR.-Mayor Pillsbury
announced from his chair lu Council last night <
that one or the considerations In the election for I
lieutenant of police was the question of color, and '
ie deemed it due to the colored race that they <
should have a representative among the oiHcers
>f the police force. Assuming that nts views
vere those of Council, he nominated William M.
f'lney, a colored man, formerly a roundsman of
he police force, bat latterly a S?tate constable, for c
he position. The Aldermen, while probably dis- 1
posed to give the colored race a good share of the 1
?polls, were not willing to have their prerogatives 1
io summarily dispensed with, and the Mayor's
?et received but three votes, and Sergeant"Cassidy,
yho has been connected/with the 'orce for about
iwenty years, was elected on the second ballot. | 1

The minutes of the last meeting were read and
Alderman Geddings read a petition from John
H. Devereux and others asking to be relieved
from exorbitant taxes on property sltoated on
Charleston Neck, as they pay taxes for road
drainage, Ac., and receive no adequate recom?
pense from the city, in shape of protection. The
petition sets forth the grievances at length.and ou
motion of Alderman VI Igt was referred to the ?
committee on retrenchment and relief.
A petition from wharf owners and lessees was
read by the Mayor asking for a light on all nights,
moonlight nights Included, in order to secure a
proper guard on their property. Referred to the
committee on lighting the streets.
The petition of the owners of Brown's wharf,
praying to be relieved from exorbitant taxation,

nying ptatof King street, between Queen and

justed, was referred to the committee on streets,
with Instructions to report at an early day. ,
Alderman Voigt, from the committee on pub?
lic lands, presente/t a report in favor of continu?
ing the lease of the White Point Bathing-house to
Mr. McManmon for ten years, at $50 per annum.

ports on the petition of C. Morris A Co., to erect

ing of Insurance license. Granted.
Alderman Geddings presented sundry bills,
which were passed ror payment.
Thc Mayor stated that by act or the Legislature
Connell was authorized to elect a board of equali?
zation, who would act with the State board.
On motion of Alderman Collins, consideration
of this question was postponed until the Mayor t
saw flt to cad an extra session for that purpose. -
The Mayor stated that on.the 19th of November i
Lieutenant Tart, of the police, tendered his reslg- <
nation, which had been accepted, and asked for :
the confirmation of this action by Council. On
motion, the resignation was accepted.
The clerk of council and other newly elected
city officers then presented their bonds and sure- '.
iles, which were approved and accepted. ('
The Mayor called attention to the vacancy on
the police force, and stated that competency and
atness were the qualifications necessary for the
? )sltion ; but there were other questions that arose,
'hat of color, and as his life-long predictions were
ihat all men were born equal, he thought that the '
:laims or the colored race to a repr?sentation ^
should not be ignored. He thought that the above f
luallflcatlons were found in William M. Viney, }
:olored, and nominated him for thc position. This
issuraption or Judge and jury created Eome little
ixcltement among the Aldermen, who thought '.
:helr prerogatives somewhat curtailed, though
aochlng was said on thc subject. The vote, when
lakcn, stood 12 nays to 3 ayes, which proved that
?he views of the Mayor were not those of the ?
The Mayor then read the following list or candi- j

;lon. The result was: Cassidy 9, Quinn 5, Mlnott :
I. Mr. Cassidy was therefore declared to be elect- 1
;d lieutenant of police.

Deauty" and their masculine supporters, lt loses V
lone of Its lyrical aud dramatic charm. A .
Charleston audience ls, however, hardly up to the j
nodern pun. This brauch or their education has <
jeen neglected, and scores or worthy people will (
sit gloomily silent while bon-mots snap and spar

dent housekeeper does not wait till Christmas is
come to stock the larder with the good things so
indispensable for the holiday 'season, bnt takes
time by the forelock, and, by early and careful
purchases, gets thc benefit of a selection from a
foll market, before trie general demand has run
up the prices of such articles as everybody must j
have for the Christmas board. Among, the very
first of the enterprising holiday advertiser in the
field ls Mr. s. H. wilson, whose ramlly grocery at

vouched for by the press or Montgomery, as well
as by prominent bankgrs and merchants, and

lating medicine. The names and statements of
