New York Herald, 6th.
On i by one the (acts with regard to lbs
steamer Metropolis' condition are coming to
light. The Herald repottrr, while convem
1d with longnlioremcn and shipbuilders
yesterday, found that the tacts of the case
were .widely known. Among others he
wet with Mr. William Morrow, an old ship
wright who has worked as master mecbalc
on the tilack Warrior, Catawba, M.O. Kol
ort' steamships ;and neatly all the .New
.k-Mey coant schooner and eiuambouts ply
iiit; on the Hudson for many years back.
Mr. Mono.v raid, "Yes, 1 know all
about It. 'i'hti Metropolis wan one of the
rotUuebt tubs that ever lelt the city of
When asked Low hn accounted lor the
statements of thone connected with the
vensel, he sald:-"Capt Anker, ol the steam
er .Metropolis; Jo.eph Itonney, shipwright;
James B. I.srry, Surveyor to Lloyds of
London, and Mr. Polllon, pronounced her
in K0"'i condition and seaworthy when the
li lt the port of New Y'ork lorPhlladel hia.
If Mr. i'olllon bad examined the steamer
liim-cll and had a brace and tit with him
and bon d into bcr timbers he would have
found out her true condition. As (or Mr.
Capt. Anker, he know nothing about the
vessel. Mr. Itooney aajsthat they rw her
timbers and they were all sound.',
'How flu you know they were In silch
a bad condition?" axked the reporter,
" U'oll, iu the sprint; .ot .lt'Cl, either in
Febriary or March, I was employed to re
pair the vensel. he wan then unseaworthy
and her owners wanted ber tiled tip as
to puss the inspection. The work was
done at night to escape observation. The
vess.'l was lyirg at the toot of Canal street.
1 found htr limbers in a very bad condition.
Ucr butts bad ail started both lorwaid and
iunld-1) ps port and starboard. To iasten
them e had to take off a piece of the out
side planking about two and a hall Inches
square and then fasten the butts with bolts
to her id. The bolts were driven in bn'f
an inch or so below the surface of her sides
ami then the heads of the bolts were cov
ered wUh t'luare ple:tsof wood the siae
of the pieces taken out. so that the heads
of the bolts could not be seen. Then it
was paintod over, to that the work could
not be detected. I bored right through
the outride plank and found her timbers
rotten so rotteD,ln fact, that I could puhh
the auger right through into the celling
inside. I had to let iu the beads of tho
bolts on Hie cuMde and cover them with
a s'ii:src plug of wood and then do the
amo on the Inelde. The vessel was towed
around on a Sunday night atter she bad
beou thus .repaired to the ssrtionat dock
between the foot of Pike aud Kutgeis
streets. Tho timbers were so rotten that
the bolts did not hold well, and by the
time she got to her new wharf a good
many of the in had started again and the
work h'-.d to be done over. The inspect
ors, never could have djtectd the work il
was dons so neatly.''
Reporter lias not the veee". been re
paired since then?
-Mr. Morrow Mr. Polllon ) she bas
been repaired and was in good codltion;
hut he k'.ta suy that there has not been a
new timber put into her. The timbers
were rotten thcu and they wouldn't get
any better by growing older, would they?
They must bay e grown strong since lSID,
If Mr. l'olllon's statement Is true.
Uoporter -Conld not the vessel be re
paired so as to make her seaworthy ?
Mr. Morrow The only way she could
have bton mada teuwortliy would have
been to take her to pieces and put In new
timber'. Her keel may have been good.
1 did not examine that, hut new timbers
were certainly needed to wake her sea
worthy, the parts examied were all
above light watermark. As it was she
was not til to go outside ol uudy Hook.
Reporter Havo you any evidence of
her condition bcides your own testimony
Mr. Morrow I can get any quantity of
men who knew about it. The testimony
that has been publixhcd U all one sided. If
the insurance companies want testimony
It will he easy for them to rind it. The
Metropolis was tho most miserable tub I
ever came across In my life.
Reporter Who were ber owners at the
time you worked on her.
Mr. Morrow Luut & Co., the came own
ers as now.
Reporter why didn't you inform the
authorities of the deception that was being
practiced on them at the time?
Mr. Morrow Well, I would have trhown
up the job and informed the insuraneo
companies of tho vessel's true condition, 11
tt had been my own work. Rut I was em
ployed by another man, and was acting un
der his orders. Ho hired me to do the job.
