New York, July 31 Tbo SUtn 1-
land ferry bout Wcstfloltl, whllo In Hits
lip at WhltobuU, nnd, crowded with., pas
sengers, exploded hor boiler nt twenty
minutes past ono yesterday afternoon.
Tho concussion was torrlflc, shattering the
forward part of tbo ,boat and killing and
scalding a great number of people. Tho
hurricane deck, was carried overboard nnd
fell on a large number of persons' In the
water, cautlng them to drown.
The iceno beggared description. Men
were 1 1 ruck dumb at tho loss of their wives
and little one., wumcn were dtitractcd at
having lost tbclr husbands, and children
were crving for tbeir parents who were
lost.
The front of tho boiler was suddenly
blown out, . lodging in the bow, thirty feet
distant. The forward part ' of tho boat,
upper cabin nnd all, was instan'.ly shivered
and split into thousands of pieces; as an
cyo witness expresses it:-"The' forward
part of the boat was lifted fifty feet in tbo
air, tbo smoke stack fell and everything,
was buried in the hold."
Passengers, chairs, stools, benches and
life-preservers dropped into the held front
ing tho huge boiler, which poured out a
steady volun.o of (team. Many persons
were blown ovorboard. A father and
mother had three children blown from
their arms. The water in an instant was
alive with men. women and children.
struggling- for lite.
The after-part of tho boat,.which escap
ed tho forco of the explosion, would have
been safe for tbo uninjured, but they wcro
panic-stricken, and leaped overboard with
out regard to the consequences.
Cpt. Ullman, of the now street polico
hearing tho explosion, was promptly on
hand. A flrc-alarm was sounded.
Dr. Shine was nt tho see no of the disaster
within 10 minutes, well provided with
medicines and bandruroi, and cool and col
lected he saved several lives by his pru
dence. "Within 20 minute Inspector Jamison
'was on the ground directing tbo efforts of
the polico and keeping back tbo multitude;
Many' persons weredrowncd. Tho harbor
polico came to tho rescue, and somo gen
tleman who .wcro in row-boats near tho
battery saved several lives.
As fast aa tho wounded were recovered
they were borne to tho deck of another ferry-boat,
moored alongside, where" they
wcro' tenderly cared for by Vr. b'hl.ic.
Uy 4 o'clock over alnoty wounded per
sons had been received in tbo Centro street
hospital, five- 'of whom died within tin
hour. The scenes here wcro heartrending.
Twelve dead bodies woro removed from
the boat; four havo since been found in
the water, and flvo havo died, making so
far as known twenty-ono persons killed,
nearly outright.
Many of tboso in tbo water clung to tho
piles until thoy were rescued, but oth'ors
sunk beforo aia could reach thorn. .
At least thirty-Qvo persons' must havo
been killed and drowned. This is basing
it on tho lowest estimate Tho wounded
will reach 100.
Many of them wero placed in carriages
and driven to, tbeir homes. The drug
stores in tho neighborhood wero filled with
thorn. Among tbo injured was Sheriff
Madden, of Brooklyn, who was driven to
his rcsldonce.
Over 15,000 persons gathered at tho bat
tery within an hour after tho explosion.
John Mayer, pilot, was thrown from for
ward of tho plfol-hottso 20 feet In tho air,
falling on tho boat and escaping without
a scratch. John Kroeland was captain of

tremedous, though his friends olnim tnnt
ho Is not to blame.
Tho boiler wns Inspected by John If.

Tho excitement in tho lowor wards of
tho city, in Brooklyn and.Stnten Island, is

This hissing noiso which Crawson heard
must have, r-cen caused by tho starting of
plato patching of tbo boiler, and tho first
premonition of tho impending disaster.,
A cursory examination of tho boiler, as
it restod in tho bottom of tho boat, ro
vealed tho fact that tho explosion occurred
