PIPE MAY HAVE BEEN DAMAGED
But Little Headway Being Made in
the Eftort to Extinguieh the Flames
-Wreckage Saturated With Kero
sene and Naphtha-Fresh Volume
of Smoke Frequently Issues.
(By Associated Press.)
Pittsburg, Pa., May 18.-The officials of
the Pan Handle railroad fear a worse
explosion than the three which wrought
so much damage yesterday.
A danger line has been made 500 yards
on all sides of the burning wreckage
and the railroad police are keeping the
crowd back.
A few feet below the burning wreckage
lies the big 86-inch main of the Phila
delphia company, which comes from the
gas fields in the southwestern portion of
the state, and which supplies the Mc
Kees Rocks and Lower Allegheny dis
tricts with natural gas.
It is feared that the concussion was so
great that some of the joints or even
the pipe itself might have been dam
aged, and if such Is the case, the gas
which Is under great pressure will soon
force its way through and another ter
rific explosion will follow.
About 20 cars are piled up between the
Sharadan station and Cork's run in the
Sharaden yards.
This is still a mass of flame. In this
there are all kinds of merchandise.
Little headway is being made to ex
tinguish the fire, owing to the fact that
the entire wreckage is saturated with
naphtha and kerosene and every nov
and then a fresh volume of flame shoots
out from the smouldering ruins.
List of Dead.
Twenty-one dead and not less tnan 300
wounded are reported as the result of
the terrible catastrophe at Sharaden last
night. Of the 300 injured physicians say
at least 50 will die.
A list of the dead:
JAMES KEENAN, s'ngle, Carnegie
clerk on wrecked train.
JAMES HEAItTIG, Chestnut Mines,
Pa.
W. W. TAYLOR, brakeman, Miller's
Station, Ohio.
HAltltY SMITELY, Urichsvllle, Ohio,
level man o% Pan Handle.
- FINERTY, Sisterv.lle, W. Va.
G. E. HUNTER, freight conductor.
ALGERT McKEAN, brakeman.
HUGH FLA'IIERTY.
TONY LEO, laborer.
- LEWIS.
Unknown boy, found In potatoe field
on farm of J. It. Douglass, burned to a
crisp and unrecognizable.
Unknown man, burned to death on hill
overlooking scene of explosion.
Many Not Reported.
Many of the dead have not, been re
ported to the coroner and an accurate
list cannot be obtained at this time.
This long list is a ser.es of four accl
dents culminatitng in one of the most
frightful disasters in the history of
Greater Pittsburg.
The telescoping of naphtha cars in the
yards of the Pan Handle railroad yards
in Corks Run was followed by the ignl
tLon of the naphtha by an open switch
lamp and by the flowing of naphtha, first
free, then Ignited through the culvert
leading to the Ohio river, half a mile
JAMES BURNS TAKES FRENCH
LEAVE AND VISITS BUTTE.
HE HAD BUSINESS ON HAND
Thought He Would Get Out and Attend
to It-Fooled the Guards in the
Night Time- Misfortunes
of a Stonemason.
Footsore and ,begrlmmed with dust,
James Burns, an escaped inmate of the
state insane asylum at Warm Springs,
was arrested by Policeman McGillic at
the corner of Silver and South Montana
streets this mornini and taken to the
county jail.
Several persons in the nelghborhoid of
Silver and Montana streets noticed the
man's strange actions as he walked about
aimlessly and police headquarters was
notified.
Burns offered no resistance to the ofi
cer and said that he had come to Butte
to transact some business, and had in
tended to return to the asylum tonight.
Burns is a stonemason. He became
demented about four months ago and was
sent from this city to the asylum .l-Ie
labored ubder the hallucination that
someone was trying to kill him,
When he was taken to the asylum he
weighed less than 130 pounds, He now
weighs over 200 poulos.
With a chuckle of self-cunningness,
Burns told Policeman McGillic how
cleverly he worked his escape from the
asylum guards last evening.
Burns said that he wandered off into a
thicket and lay there until dark; that
the guards hunted for him, and several
times almost stepped upon him.
"But they did not see me," said Burns,
"and after dark I made my 'getlaway.' "
Burns escaped from the asylum once
before, about ten days ago, and made his
way to Helena, where he was captured
and returned.
away, and its explosion w:th attendant
damage to life and property.
Will Investigate.
'The -telescoping of cars was one of
those things that not infrequently hap
pens without serious consequences.
Its subsequent ignition by an open
switch light will be fully investigated.
The cause of the explosion at the point
where it once again broke out Into the
open is still a matter of conjecture.
It might be that the flame followed
the naphtha that had gone before and
resented the cramped quarters of the
culvert's opening, sending up a sheet of
naphtha and flames that wrecked half
a dozen houses In the neighborhood, set
ting them on fire, injuring not less than
a hundred people Incidentally.
The shock of the shot from this cul
vert was felt across the river in Alle
gheny, where windows were broken.
The burning of the naphtha at the
fountain head, the two naphtha tanks
was spectacular In the extreme. It was
a giant pleve of fire. People came front
far and near to view the sight.
The Second Explosion.
Fully two hours after the fire start
ed came the second expllsion. There
were three other naphtha tanks in the
immediate neighborhood of the two
tanks that had been telescoped and were
burning. Efforts to get them out of
range had, for some reason, been In
effectual.
With a mighty splash of flame across
the heavens and a noise that made the
hills quake, the tanks let go almost at
the same moment.
From the heavens there descended
streams of burning naphtha, flaming tim
ber and red hot Iron on the people on
the hill tops. Maddened by pain, the
Injured dashed hither and thither.
Those that escaped gave aid to the less
fortunate, tore the burning clothes from
them, beat at the flanes, carried the des
perately injured to more secure spots and
sent for medical aid of which they were
In need.
Speedily all of the local hospitals were
notified of the second and greater catas
trophe.
Viewed by Thousands.
The second division of the Pittsburg
Railway company sent out a number of
ears especially for the transportation of
those injurecj and these were lined up
both on the Sharadan and McKee Rocks
road and the unfortunates were c'arrled
to them.
Despite the fact that rain came pour
ing down all morning thousands went to
Sharadan to view the scene of the disas
ter.
The Sharadan yards lie between two
hills. Upon these hills are thousands
watching the crews of the wreck-trains
at work.
Passenger trains are gliding by the
wreck quickly since the news of the gas
main became known in the city. Two
flat cars lie on the siding covered with
clothing picked up during the night. The
majority of these are rags charred.
It is a common sight In Sharadan this
morning to see people with their heads
and hands bandaged. Many were burned
whose names have not appeared.
ATIER "GRAFTERS"
COUNTY ATTORNEY BREEN PRO
CEEDS AGAINST OFFICIALS.
TO KEEP OFFICERS STRAIGHT
Mr. Breen Will Try and Remove Con
stables Cosgrove and Shea From
Office,b and He May Proceed
Against Other Officeholders.
Much trouble seems to be ahead of
Constables Cosgrove and Shea of Walk
erville, who were arrested last night and
charged with "grafting." County Attor
ney Breen Is now investigating the laws
governing the removal of officials for
malfeasance in offrle, and In all proba
bllty he will bring proceedlngs in the
dlstrict court to remove them from olffic.
"We are going to try to keep the ofti
cels of the county straight if we don't
do anything else," said Mr. Breen today.
If we can't keep the officer straight we
might as well give up trying to keep the
public straight. We will certainly bring
an action to remove Shea and t'osgrove
from office If we find the means to do so
provided by law, and 1 think we shall
find the way."
After County Officials.
It Is understood that the collection of
illegal fees will also be brought forward
In thie matter, and that other charges
will be made against the constables be
side "grafting."
It is said that other townshpl, officlals
are to be stirred up for c llecting Illegal
fees, and there may he proceedings to
oust certain justices of the peace who
are accused of malpractices In office.
There Is one justice of the peace who
has openly confessed that he is crooked,
on two occasions, It is stated, and his
case will be looked into. It Is said that
he declared that the attorneys who bring
him business will get the judgments.
From the Interest the county attorney
and .lIs assistants are taking In these
matters It looks as If there was a lively
time ahead for some of the justices and
constables of the county.
