THE BOILER 1XTE8TIGATIOS.
Tile Inqneat Coattnned-Summary ot*
ino .New Evidence, &c. .
The inquest apon the body of Frederic Bar
ton, the young man who was killed by the ex?
plosion of the boiler at the Phoenix Iron
Works, last Friday, was continued yesterday
morning at the coroner's office. The Jury met,
pursuant to adjournment, at eleven o'clock,
and, after examining five witnesses, adjourned
over until eleven o'clock this morning. The
1 olio win g is a summary of the evidence given
by each witness :
W. H. Prioieau, one of the partners In the
firm of J. F. Taylor & Co., tee ti fled he was not
present at the explosion, and had no experi?
ence In boiler ma tiing, engineering, &c; ex?
amined the scene alter the accident, and saw a
great deal of water -splashed against tba build?
ings inside; attends to the finances of the firm.
Thos. Morrle,-rdachiaist ?nglde?r and em?
ployee at the works, said he was in the ma?
chine shop at a vise on the lower floor o? the
building when the explosion occurred. Heard
the noise, and being s'.raid tbe place might
take fire went for an engine. Examined the
lower end of the sbop where the boiler stood
and the ground outside. Found the ground
wet and the building Inside wet also, ls satis?
fied tbat this water came from the boiler.
Can form no opinion of the water on the
ground as lt was raining that morning. Had
been working on the boiler two days before
the explosion making steam and water con?
nections. On Thursday examined the force
and lift pumps and lound them all right. Can
assign no; cause for the explosion. There
were two boilers used on the premises, con?
nected by a steam pipe, but elmer could be
shat off. Both were In use on tbe morn?
ing of the explosion. The one In the
boner shop was running the engine until
the other bad been, repaired and could
gel tip steam. It was then shut off from the
engine" and the boiler that exploded.- The
boiler In the boiler shop was much longer but
not as largo th diameter as the exploded one.
There was a safety valve to the latter, which
was taken off on the Thursday before the ex?
plosion, and the weight was tben put back on
the lever at seventy-five pounds, under the di?
rections of the foreman. If the safety valve
worked properly when there was seventy-five
pounds of steam pressure the weight would
rise up and the steam wonld blow off until
there was les3 than seventy-five- pounds pres
sure. Wa? at work se ven ty-fl ve feet from the
boiler. Did not hear the boiler blow off steam
before the explosion took place, and did not
think he would have beard lt had it done so.
Saw the steam gange a few minutes before the
explosion, and noticed lt was not more than
fifty-three pound s pressure. Does not think lt
possible for the boiler to have generated more
than fifteen or twenty pounds of steam from
the time he Baw the gauge to the time of the
explosion. Would not risk one hundred
poonda ol steam running the boiler himself.
It was impossible for a boiler of that capacity
to generate forty or nf .v pounds of steam in
three minutes. There was a well lo the yard
and one ln'Pritcbard street and a cistern on
the premises from which the boilers were sup
lied. The well water Is not as pure as cistern
water, By mixing well and cistern water In a
bollerlt will cause the water to foam. Thinks
, an experienced marr could not mistake sucb
foaming fox solid water in trying a gauge cock.
Considers lt perfectly safe to continue using
the boiler if such water foams.
T. W. Tobin, a machinist employed at the
works, testified he was working on the ground
floor of the machine shop at toe time of the
explosion. Went to help those who were
hurt-John T. Lyons, John Early, IL Blanche,
William McLelsb, John Bose, John Robinson.
J. Quinn. Did not hear the boiler blow off
steam. Passed where the boiler had stood a
minute' or two after the explosion. Did not
notice any water on the ground or building.
J. A. Mosely, an engineer, testified tbat he
went to tbe Phoenix Works about three
quarters ol an hour, after the explosion, and
examined tbe place where tbe boiler stood.
Saw nothing of boiler; but saw a great deal of
water on the ground around as it lt bad come
from the boiler.
John F. Taylor, the senior partner of the
firm, having been recallad, testified that there
was a safety-valve to tr~e boiler made -at tbe
works. There was a mark on the lever at
sixty and one at seventy, which was the limit.
When more- than seventy pounds of pressure
was on the boiler, lt would blow off if the
valve worked properly. Is ot the opinion
that; If lhere wa? ?a pressuTeof 'fifty pounds of .
steam on the boiler that exploded, and the ;
boiler vv?s hmnlogithe engine, that lt was im- ?
possible to raise the steam to one hundred i
pounds. Can advance no argument or assign
no cause for thinking that the boiler mlgat
possibly bave exploded from a sudden genera?
tion of steam.
This completed the labors of the jury for the
day, and an adjournment was taken until this

continued, with little variation, till late at

from the east and north by east, but at about
two o'clock yesterday afternoon it got around
to the south, and gave some promise of clear- j
lng up. The rain ceased for an hour or two,
and the sun struggled out for a few minutes,
but at about five o'clock the clouds again cov?
ered the sky, and the rain began again as
furious as ever, and accompanied by vivid
flashes of lightning, which continued all the j
evening. The telegraphic reports indicate |
that the rain covered a large area of country,
but no serious disasters are reported.

TRIBUTE' OE RESPECT.
At a regular communication of Union.KU
winning Lodge, No. 4. A. F. M., held on Thursday I
evening, March 21st, 1872. fie Worshipful Master
announced the death of B.other F. J. Porcher, ia
i he following terms:
It ls with no mere fem of words that I an*
nonnce to you, my brethren, that since our last
regular communication anotaer vacancy has
occurred lu the Kilwinning Lodge, but my heart
feels to its very depths the void that has thus been I
created. Desfeh loves, 'tis said, a shining mark,
and in striking down with his merciless darts
our brother, Francis J. Poroher, be has taken
from ns one whose name ateod high on the roll of
those we loved and honored. There need do
words of enlogy or praise from me to enhance his J
manly qualities In your memories.
You all knew him, Just what he was-JuBt what
the unan im aus verdict bf the entire community I
pronounce him-au upright, high-toned, honora- I
bte and generous gentleman, fit type of that old
Caro.ina race so fast pissing away.
Soddenly was he taken from us, without a
word or pote of warning, and even the fast-beat
lng heart of Commerce stilled its rapid pulsations, I
and men gathered silently and Badly in the
streets and on the wharves as the startling an- I
nouncement came upon them like a thunderbolt
out or a cloudless sky, that "Frank Porcher" was
In the prime of life, fuji of busy schemts for the
welfare of those dear to him, and especially for
the advancement in prosperity of this his native
city, bis son fast passing his meridian, and prom
?sing a long and peaceful evening, as it slowly de- j
scended Into the far distant west, has been sud- I
deni y eclipsed,"and au stand aghast at the un
looked for catastrophe. ' j
Without warning, his bowl has been broken at
the cistern, J a=t when his family,-bis friends andi
the community were prepared to make the larger
draughts upon it. And the strong staff and j
beautiful rod upon which we all leaned has been
snapped asunder, and we are like men groping I
In the dark for oar accustomed support.
As a Mason, Brother Francis J. Porcher illus?
trated the beauty of those tenets that we pro?
fess, carried out by an honest heart, into every I
action of life; aa das his word was ever guarded
as the apple of his eye, and the touchstone of his j
honor, so la the new obligations he here re?
ceived to keep that word even more sacred, he j
found nothlog new or difficult, bot as in the
past, so even as a Mason, was he true and stead
fast in all his dealings with his fellow men.
We moora to-night a trae and zealous Mason,
and a brother to whom the Interests or this
Lodge were especially dear.
It was my sad privilege, lu company with my j
Brother Wardens, to visit his residence en the j
morn.ng after his decease, to tender to his family
the U:ual8olemu Masonic ceremonies.
The almost unanimous attendance of onr Lodge
at the last funeral services ol our brother proved
that, In common with the eutlre community, we
mourned sincerely for him who had been so loved
And one could wish no better epitaph, no
higher meed ef praise than such a spontaneous
outpouring of esteem and regard as was evinced
in the hush that brooded over the marts of trade,
in the closed doors and quiet streets of the com?
merce, and lu the numerous throng that, with
honest grief, gathered around his untimely grave.
But words poorly express the feelings when the
heart ls full to overflowing, and I can only lay
tills simple wreath of affection and esteem upon
the grave or one whom 1 loved and admired BB a
man and a Mason, aad trust some brother will in?
troduce la fitter terms that tribute of respect that
wu; be recorded upon onr minute-, and be at least j
a slight evidence of our love and affection for our
The following preamble and resolutions were
then Introduced and aoaalmoosly adopted:

In all ages, and at all periods, and under all

Well, air, may tbe Lodge of Union Kilwinning
assume the garb of mournlner aud sorrow for the
loss we have sustained, and well may .Masonry
deplore this bereavement.
Frank Porcher waa onr friend, onr brother, and
our examt le In private and social life. This was
eminently so. In his active business occupa' lons
he was marked by those qualities which remain
Indelible: for he was the trna -representative of
manhood. HU principles of lntearlty never com?
promised; his mind seized npon its object and he
labored for Its attainment; be never yielded to
dim cu I tte?, but always to truth, for tm tn to him
was anoiber name for God; bis word waa equal to
blabODd, and bia bond, it life huted, was better
than bis estate. In all bis dealings probity was
his guiding star; no commercial interests ever
seduced him, and no prospect of profit ever led
him astray. If lt be that an honest man is the
nobles: work of God, Porcber's place In the calen?
dar wm be high among the highest.
Benevolence held her conrt in his heart, and
eloquence waa no ?tranger to his Ups when his
appeals were made for the poor and needy. His
arm would have been lifted against oppression,
but bia hand waa never raised agatnat toe weak
and heavy ladeo. Onr brother was an original
man, with an individual organization of his own.
Be favored other men, but it cannot be said he
receive I patronage from any, for a kindness done
him was eure to be returned, and ir not to the
very person who con 'erred it, to aome other of
the human family; and this,air, we are told, ls a
cardinal p-Int In ihe teachings of our ancient
brotherhood, whose lessons pervade every quarter
of tbe globe, and wnose antiquity measures with
time itself. Therefore,
Resolved, That our afflicted and Impoverished
and down-trodden State has cause for weeping
over the loss of a brave and generous and devoted
Bon, who, In the community where he lived and
died, had earned a reputation for the t oblest sen?
timents which Invariably adorn the most elevated
Resolved, That in our Kilwinning Lodge there
ls this day a vacuum which we cannot nope to
see readily or easily filled; and that the most val?
uable institutions in oar country have reason to
sympathize with us In lamenting this calamity.
Resolved, That a page in our "Minutes" be
dedicated to the memory of Francis J. Porcher;
that a record of bia death be preserved as a
mournful event in our history;, that tte se pro?
ceedings be recorded on that page as an evidence
of his worth, and as an expression of oar affec?
tionate remembrance of his virtuous and honor?
Resolve}, That a copy of this preamble and
r?solutions be forwarded by the secretary of this
Lodge to the family of our deceased brother, and
that they be published in the morning papers of
our city. .

ed by the Board ct Supervisor? of the
High School of the City of Charle*t on.
It has pleased God to remove our friend and
colleague, Colonel James H. Taylor, from tbe
scene ot his earthly labors.
When we last met he was among cs sharing In
our deliberations, aiding us by bis suggestions,
leading na by his example, and reassuring us by
bis zeal, his activity and his energy. It was
very evident that he bad entered upon the work
before ns with bia wbole heart, and was striving'
to make tbe High School of Charles'on an orna?

nent and most useful citizens-men of untiring
energy, nnselflih spirit, vigorous Intellect and
irreproachable character-men whose counsels
were sorely needed in this oar day of trial, and
whose example, we felt, would be worthy of .our
emu'atlon. Among these, and such as these, Col.
Taylor stood boldly ont, irresistibly attracting our
regard and commanding our confldence.
He was himself a man of great natural ability,
of extensive culture and varied acquirements,

He was so constitute I that the public welfare

the Importance of education In securing the hap?
piness and advancing .the Interests of the Com?
He was a Christian, and ho knew well how mnch
education could add to the Intelligence of our
faith, and our resources for Its.defence.
During the abo rt time that be bad been associ?

ness had made bim not only our valued colleague,

Taylor the High Sohool of Charleston, and the
cause or education, haa lost a most earnest
friend, whose ability and energy waa a sure re?
liance, and whose place among us lt will be diffi?
cult to AU; and onr board bas lost a member who
had endeared hlnaelf to aa all by his generous
sympathies, and had commanded oar affection
ate respect by his vigorous Intellect and bia blame?

Resolved, Th it the above preamble and resolu?
tion be copied on the Minutes, and be pnbllahed
m ins CHARLESTON NEWS and Courier.
Resolved, That a copy be also sent to the family
of the deceased in token of onr sincere sympathy.

pw BECAUSE A PERSON BAS A BAD
Cough U should not be inferred that consump?
tion has set tn, although a case of Consumption
ls rarely met with unaccompanied by a distress?
ing Cough. Where, however, a'disposition to
Pulmonary disease exists, a Cough, if left to ttl
self, strains and racks the Lungs, and wastes the
general strength, and soon establishes an incura?
ble complaint. In all casea, then, lt ia the safer
plan to get rid of a Congh, Cold or Hoarseness
without delay, and for this purpose no remedy
acta more promptly or Barely, or with more bene?
fit to the organs of the chest than Dr. D. JAYNE'S
EXPECTORANT, an article scientifically com?
pounded from carefully selected drugs, and
which, on trial, will always be found worthy sf
its world-wide reputation. Sold everywhere.
