ii om had put out Of commission four
of the big boilers on the battleship and
that the vessel will havo to undergo
extensive repairs. The botird had
nothing to give out for publication
and the officers of the fleet declined
to discuss I he probable outcome of
the inquiry, claiming that no one e n
anticipate the findings of (he board,
an,) that the real cause of the acci?

The inquiry was started early today
