Tbm Pineu Killed and Hie Boat D? ]
[ hi rayed.
On'Satutdsy night about 8 o'clock in- {f
> tenno excitement 111 created In tbia city cl
bv the announcement that the towboat J'
' 'Iron Valley, belonging here,had blown up, jj
killing several of her crew and also Capt ?
Prince, tater telegrams, however, an- ai
. nounced the fact that shortly after 7 <j|
o'clock the boilers ol the boat had explod- ((
1 ed at a point a short distance above New
Cmnborland, and that three persons were w
r Instantly* killed, via: Thos. Prince, jr.,
clerk, Wallace Wise, pilot, and a man
j named. Pressor, living at New Cumber- j,
f land, who had come aboard to pay a tow Q
Ingbili. Nothing further could be gather- ?j
i ed Saturday night, nor all day Sunday. ?,
< The Nail City, also of this city, was fired p
up by Capt John Armstrong and f>
I left for the scene of tho disaster on Sat. [>
) urday night, taking with her John Prince, ?
brothor ot Capt wm. Prince, of tlie Iron ?
i, Valley. Nothing further was heard of the |(
g affair, although pieces of the wreck floated j,
past the city all day, until tho return of ?
_ tho Nail City last night about 8 o'clock, w
bringing with her Capt Wm. Prince and ft
othors of the crew ol the Valley. We
, called upon him at his residence on the |e
" Inland, and learned tho following particu- g
lars of the explosion: "I had gone off IR
' wotch shortly before 7 o'clock to eat ray n
y supper auu to qo to nea, as i was very m
e tirou. We had just finished supper, and I fc
1. had gone out upon the tow among the
e barges to hold the skitT of the man Pros* v
[. sor, who had come aboard at New Gum* (l
> berland to nay a towing bill, and was a
waiting for him to como out. He had
j gone into the cabin to get a rcceipt from ft
0 my son Tom. As nearly as I can tell, this p
r was 7 o'clock, when suddenly there was tl
a terrific explosion, followod almost
. immediately by one of less force, and
" tho air was filled with pieces of the wreck ?
a and a perfect shower of splinters nearly |(
'* blinding me. The boat sunk almost im- g
mediately. Wo saw Prosser go down and f
- I attempted to pull his from among the j
t debris, but was not able myself, and had ^
it to summon assistance. He died as soon e,
as we got him into the barge, breathing &
e but once or twice afterwards. We made v
)( immediate search for the bodies of my son 8
r. and Wise but it was ineffectual. I think, r
maybe, that they are in the hold of tho a
sunken boat, ond will make immediato c]
r search for them in it." We then asked \\
. him as to the cause of the explosion and v
'' his theory of it He said ho was unable
to account for it. The boilers, he
said, had been tested and inspectIf
a.I t.i \(a<t anil wava a^lln/l aa .
? fur as lie* was aware of. He had c
not been below for several hours preced*
r ing the occurrence, but things had been g
't going ou as usual, lie had a very heavy Q
'a tow in charge; hod left this city on Satur- 8;
day morning with three empties and one ti
It loaded barge of limestone. This barge
(1 had !>een left'at Steuben ville, and another
a one of pig iron takon on." n
"Was there too little water in the boil- ti
? era?" we asked. tl
't "Persons on shoro told me that a few a
minutes before the explosion occurred f|
they had heard the gfluge-cocks tried, and ti
. that thov indicated the presence of abun- tl
y dance oft water." c
"We have heard the efficiency of the
(J- engineer (inestioued. Was there anything
in it?" ' r
d "lie isonoof the most efficient on the d
r river," was the reply. y
) Two or three possibilities were sug- j
gested as explanatory of the afTair, but not $
j, adoptod by him as the actual causo; but o
it ho admitted that they could have pro- n
d duced it.
v. John Prince was orosent dnrintr the con
vernation with his brother, and walked *
cg over the bridge with us. From him we
8. learned that the beat lay in about nine J.
a feet of water, with portion of the upper .
w deck exposed. She will be a total loss, ,
unless perhaps some of her machinery
may be saved. He is n steamboatman,
i? and we asked him as to his theory of the
[r affair. "Well, about the only explanation .
J* I can offer of it is this: If there was plenty "
Jr of water in the boilers, and there appears ^
to have been, I think it must have result;e
ed from this fact, a day or two apo one of jj
ill the boilers had a patch put in it of new rj
>r boiler iron, and 1 apprehend that the old
n metal was not strong enough to hold it."
Capt. Tom Prince said that she was a
of good boat, and the boilers had been pro- n
d- perly tested while ho yet owned her. He c
t- had recently sold lier to his brother. c
n, Capt. Hiram Young, U.S. Inspector of
io Hoilers, was at homo, and said he had but v
one theory of the matter, "too little water
at in the boilers." This was in his experim
cnce the only cause of explosions. He n
u had seen the results of many, and notli- g
? ing else ever caused them. Gross neglect j
' on the part of an engineer can produce B
3 them, and nothing elso. He had inspect- v
od lier in May, and she at that time was
") in a lawful condition.
1(1 At the tiino of the explosion a younger v
son of Captain Win. Prince was standing \
near the engine and had looked at the f
,e steam gauge but a moment or two before, E
it then indicated 142 or 143 pounds of
it 6team, which is not a heavy pressure. ?
iu The firemen Wickhan and Gillespie were 0
ik sitting forward when the explosion occur- n
m red, and tlio body of ProBsor was thrown ?
lg against the head of Gillespie and fell into y
the river. It is supposed that young Prince (
r(l and Wise were blown to pieces by theter- 0
ig rible force of tlio explosion, as no vestige 8
|r of either; has been found. Of the men \
s, killed, Wallace Wise has been a pilot for 8
)e many years on this river, and was considered
a careful and trust-worthy man.

wife and Ave children in the most desti- t
g tute circumstances. Thomas I'rince. jr.,
:' was about eighteen years of age. ana has
i been employed about this and other boats a
for along time; at the time of his death a
he was acting as clerk of the boat. o
in The Iron Valloy was built in this city,
iy at the yards of Wilson Dunlevv, in
y 1873. She was licensed the second cfay of p
May in that year. Her owner was Capt. p
Thos. Princo until some three weeks ago.
'!? when he sold out to Wm. Prince and
j Sam Kuglen for about 80,000. Sne origin- e
al ally cost $10,000. There was no insurance t
pr ou her, and she will bo a totat loss to her
ownors. Capt. Wm. Princo will take immediate
steps to raise her and pull her up
