Tow bo la Htirned,
Pittsburg, Jan. 2. An accident oc
curred at Davis Island Dam, nine miles
from tbts city, at 2 o'clock this morning,
by which one man is known to hare lost his
life, while three others probably perished,
as tbey are still missing. Shortly after
midnight the towboate J. X. Bunton and
John F. Case left this city with tows for
lower ports. Their progress was slow,
owing to tbe ice and strong current. When
Davis Island was reached, the boats lost
control of their tows and swung against tbi
south pier. The three coal boats sank at
once. Tbe Cae drifted to tbe bead
of Neville Island, wbere she lodged.
Tbe Bunton was not so fortunate;
tbe shock of the collision threw the
fire from under her bolters, and in two
minutes sbe was burning In a dozen places,
a scene of the utmost confusion following.
Her crew, numbering twenty men, became
panto-stricken, snd several Jtgmped over
board. Midway between the dam and
Neville Island the boat careened and went
down in anallow water. Tbe Case uot hav
ing been Injured, put out a yawl and suc
ceeded lu picking up sixteen of the Bun
ton's crew. The other four are missing,
ghortly afterward the body of Engineer
Underwood was ploked up. It is possible
the three still missing managed
to make thfl shore, but up to
noon to-day they bad not reported. Their
name, are Frank Toung and Alvis Beving
ton, deck hands, and Oustavus Atbenhauff,
a cook. Tbey are all young and unmar
ried. Engineer Underwood leaves a wife
and live children. The steamer Bunton Is
a total loss. Sbe was owned by Walton A
Co. of this city and valued at $25,000, and
the loaded coal boat which sunk was valued
at $25,000, making a total loss of $50,000.
The aooldent is attributed to the
neglect to have ' the Govern
ment signals lighted. Signals are re
quired on ths lock wall and dam- If this
precaution bad not been neglected tbe
pilots would have bad no difficulty In hold
ing their tows between the lights. When
the Bunton arrived wttbtn the usual dis
tance of ths dam, at wbloh lights were sup
posed to be risible, tbe lookout was unabls
to distinguish mora tban one light, wbicb
was discovered afterward to be on tbe lock
wall. It waa then too lata to tie up, or
van prevent ths tow from drifting, such
was ths foroe of the loe-oappsd current, and
tba boats went crasbtng against tbe pier.

He is a Jolly fellow, weighing upwards
of 250 pounds, with a very florid face and
deep set, small, ligbt-gray eyes. He walks
like a veritable old salt and looks like one
who drank deeply, but he says
be never dissipates. He is a Newfound

several times, and it scales like a fish. I
met bim on Penn avenue and asked him
if be thought Lieut. Greely and party were

Washington, Jan. 2. It is expectod
tbat an effort will b3 made to establish some
of tbe features of the Life-Saving Service on
tbe Mississippi River. Congressman Rob
ertson last session introduced a bill for tho
establish ut( nt of life-saving stations on
that river, with nun or two paid meu
at eacii, the remainder of the crew to
be of the "volunteer" order. The
work of the Lift-Saying Service
in tbe past year bas been remarka
ble. The number of wrecks on the coast
nd on tbe lakes, within its territory, was
n tho past year mote than at any time In
ho history of tbo service, yst the number
)f lives lost was remarkably small. The
dumber of wrecks was over 400, while tbe
lost of life was but fifteen. Tbe system
nw extends over the entire coast of tbe
Uuited States and on tbe lakes and at one
or two points on the Ohio river. So e fBcient
has tbe service become tbat In ail this ter

than it was on the New Jorsey coas' before

In tbe meantime preparations bad been
made for tbe approaching conflict The men
were stationed behind tbe bulwarks, and
their faces wore a determined look. Nearer
and nearer drew the Avenger to her prey,
until at last sbe lay alongside the dreaded
oyster pirate of Chesapeake bay. Not a sign
of life was visible on the craft. From the
mizzenmast a week's washing flapped dismally

ever the Avenger's side and grasped a shirt,
thereby being enabled to bold bis vessel

in silent admiration. Brilliant seamanship

copies of Secretary Chandler's report will be
hurled on your deck."
"My God," said the pirate; "are you, then,
devoid of all humanity)"
"Yes," replied tbe lieutenant; "no quarter
