0 Only one witness was examined in the
e Scioto Investigation yesterday, the balance
|? of the brief .session being consumed with an
1 interesting discussion on thu admissibility ol
j expert testlmbny.
j> EDWAHU It. CAIII1X,
'l a youth of 17, living at Wellsvilje, was the
' first witness, and he testified that he was one
J of the excursionists on the Bcioto on the
' Fourth. When the I<oina* met the Kcloto
he was in the engine room, lie did not hear
tho Lomas blow, but heard the Scioto's an*
swer, and immediately started toward tho
n bow of tho boat, thinking slio was whistling
Sfor a lauding at Htcubenville. lie got to the
engine-room door, when lie noticed the pea)>lo
running hack from tho front part 6t the
'8 boot. Ho did not realize what was the matH
ter, and did uot see tho bourn* until she had
" lauded, lie beard no bells ringing. He
'i sturted back toward tho stern of the boat and
n got into a sklfl*some one had shoved into the
} river, but so many had gotten into it that it
> swamped. He hung to the skirt'as long as he
could, aud then swam back to the 8cioto and
i* uiuuuru upon me nurricuno roni, mo omy
y the only dry spot on tho boat. Ho thought
y tho bout lay In the middle of the river after
), she sank. He was not In the pilot house till
n after the collision, though ho tried to get in
e once and it was locked. There were about
n half a dozen i>coide inside then.
2, Not more than a minute or so elapsed bep
twecn the Scioto'n whistle and the collision.
If The engineer, or tho second engineer, grasped
u a wheel with which they stop and start the
h engine with, and turned it, though the wit*
ness did not notice which way he turned it.
it Ho did not know how hist tho Scioto was go,r
ing, but ho did not think sho had been
<j checked up much. A bell might have rung
r in the engine room without his hearing it,
,1 At tho conclusion of this young man's test
tlmony, a discussion arose on the subject of
'e the kind of evidence that was desired. Capt.
j Young said that these pilots were being tried
r by the rules provided for their government,
,{ and expert testimony was not of uny value,
0 and would only extend the investigation in.a
definitely. This met with some op(>osition,
lt and Mr. lJovener said ho wanted to know the
j| full effect of tho decision. Tho Hoard was
Arm. however, and refused to receive any
v further testimony except as to facta connectr3
ed with the collision..
In response to Inspector Young's very Arm
}f announcement of
:e Ttir. decision or the maud,
ie Mr. l)ovener said, with sonio warmth: "Lei
'K me see if 1 understand what you say has
'B been tho decision of this Hoard after conllt
sulfation. 1 understand you to say that thh
n Hoard docs not want the evidence of any ex10
pert witness or pilots who were not tfiere,
iioiwiinsiauuing wie puoi 01 me ocioio, wiio
re is here being tried for an infraction of the
law, expects to prove by those pilots tbut the
>y position in the river that lie held wua that
)K which was proper and right for a pilot asin
ccnding the river at that time. And uotwitho
standing we expect to prove by any pilot
A you can producc, that tho ]>ositiou ol iht
It, I/unas was not the proper one in the river,
ly and furthermore, that tne pilots at the wheel
or of the Lotuas are not recognized as pilots, noty
withstanding tho fact that they am licensed
ie by the Governniont as pilot*), and that theii
of standing dots not comparc in proficiency
?d with regular pilots on the river. Do I under
I. stand you refuse to receive testimony as tc
st their knowledge or eccentricities, either
as mentally, physically, ar anything else wc
e- may be able to show was attached to the
it standing and character of the pilot At the
a wheel ol tho Ixmias? Is that your decision?"
ie Inspector Young: "That is the decision."
ire Mr. Dovener?That if we can produce
iy pilots of long experience to show thow that
or Li. J. Long, notwithstanding the fact that he
a received a license from the Government,
je never steered any boat along there, and thai
nr ho is not a proficient man at the wheel, and
es by men of I'O years' experience on tho river
se as pilots, and who have seen him make sucli
bs mistakes as this; and notwithstanding we
a propose to show by other pilots of experience
that Mr. HolJman is not a iirst-class pilot,
and whose opinion has been received here as
to the proper position of the Lotuas, you
fj still refuse to hear that testimony?
I,. Inspector Young?That is it.
ef Mr. Cracraft? Upon the introduction ol
1C that testimony we intend to show that David
t0 Keller never was a skilful pilot; that he was
jj0 not competent on that day, or a safe man at
in any other time by reason of his habits, ant
we will prove it by some of the best pilots oc
er the river.
-,f Inspector Young?Wc will rule that out
u. gentlemen.
Mr. Cracraft?We did not seek to introduci
such testimony, but if they do so we will dc
k so. We expect to vindicate Mr. Long, ant
a\ when he had his Government license that thai
:1S license was conclusive as to his competency
e until some act of his broke it, and whal
might be the opinion of other pilots don'i
)r amount to shuks. Do the facts at thotinu
d of the collision hold either pilot to blame'
,r That is the question. Take the great bit
is prominent and conspicious facta, notwbai
one pilot may think of another, Sometimes
lt't those pilots have a great deal of feeling
against others and haven good many quarrels
;r Cant. Doveuer?What the gentlemen maj
ce say he will prove as an ofl'set. I am no:
1G objecting to, but we expect to show that Mr,
iy Keller not only has his license from the
^ government and that
1c he is a competent max.
j3 and expect to contend before this Board am
- umore uny court mm tuc tact that a man Uui
JC u permanent license in bis bund i:
not jirimufacie evidence that be is a good pi
lot* What would be the necessity of investiga
ting this man if such would be the case. Tlx
.n fact tbnt a nuin lias bad experience for u lonj
time time up and down the river for a dist
anc? of 100 miles certainly allows be hasmor<
W experience and better ability and judgnien
as a pilot than a man wbo bus steered a ferrj
boat from 0110 side of tlio fiver to tin
oilier. 1 only desire the stenographer t<
lis take down the decision bo that we may knov
the position that is taken here. We have sev
,n eial witnesses hero who have passed ove
that track day by day for the last threo 01
four years and it seems to me their evhlenct
r* might throw some light on this investiga
>n tion. Such men as George O'Neal, who dai
by day passes over that track.
n* Mr. G'racraft?We might offer tlio sann
,w man.
Mr. Dovener?You do,and wc won't object
is Mr. Cracraft?You have been talking t<
al him and we haven't. I can prove tlio coursi
of bis steamer on the next day was to tin
si- channel at Devinney's warehouse, but I don'
18 care about that, ilerc is what I say, I an
' not going to answer an absurdity. A pilo
that has authority and license is authorize<
:T to go between the points that license grants
' anil he is recognized as a proper pilot unti
that license is takeu away by his irregulari
ol ties, it is the law of the land and what i;
*"> the use of talking about it? Whenever .
c* have a license between Pittsburgh and CIn
cinnati over tiiat course I go, whether all thi
iu pilots who may be jealous and green will
id- prejudices against me may say 1 am not i
ist good pilot. But when I err, and show unfit
ness, and fail to keep good my license, then
jn you may take It away.
[e. Inspector Young?Gentlemen, the decisioi
we have just made debars cither side fron
presenting evidence of that character.
Air. Dovencr?I gave a list of these geutlo
lie men to your honor, as your honor well
knows, during last week aud requested yoi
n' to summons tbem. Since tbat time there
have been summons sent to Wellsville
ial Mouudsville and other places for theothei
of side, and now at this late hour
ce we are told we cannot introduce oui
witnesses which we requested to bo sum
in inoned last week. We had witnesses here al
nt along that we wished to put upon the stand
lis but. yielded to the other side, and allowed
them to put their witnesses on because the)
came from a distance, and because I s<
.,o yielded to them I suppose we aro to be de
prived of our witnesses' testimony. Air,
George O'Neal was hero from day to day, and
did not your honor remark to me thai
* these were witnesses that were brought hen
1 u and could not be called up atany time, and
10 now you tell me I can't call them at all.
e> Inspector Youngr?'This is not an opinior
to just arrived at by this Bonrd. Tl|ia Board car,
re attach no weight to the evidence of experts,
er Captain Dovener called attention to the
er caso of the steamboats Thomas Sweeney ant
lr- Fannie Fern, in which Capt. John JlcLurt
y, and other expert wittcsses testiQed in refer
le, ence to the proper positions of those boats,
'a- although they were not within fifty miles ol
the place of the collision at tbo- time it tooli
place.
Mr. Cracraft?Theso rules weren't in force al
sn the time. ,
be Capt. Dovener?There never has been any
_. rule in force as to where a boat should be
* in the river. That has to be proved by experienced
river men. Jf a man has his boat
n- out in the river, in the wrong place, that is
e- very good-evidence that he is not a goot)
a- pilot. V
Inspector Young?The Board understands
al that it is not impossible that improper men
al may receive their license, and they.are to be
of considered good licenses until there is an inu
fraction of the rule that governs them. That
of is tho point. Now, what do these men know
nil to tno aotinti of thptn ti ?~
? ....... r..WM>, may
know about the custom, but what do they
know about what they, uld?The Uw.vprc
sumes Improper men may get their license,
' and provides how they shall b? deprlred of
their license. This Board Is competent to
determine Just to what extent the rule has pi
i been observed, not what the custom has been of
. and what experts say here, Hut If you will

' be developed to a wonderful extent; we can 8'
, only hope that a largo majority of them will ^
i muterialize, and among them the Kanawha si
t & Chesapeake road, for] which accrtiliate of tc
, incorporation was issued by Secretary of tli
State titalraker, yesterday. si
It is issued to a party of gentlemen agree- a$
: ing to become a corporation for the purpose a]
! of constructing, operating and doing other
< railroad business iu this State under the
I name of the Kanawha & Chesapeake Rail- d<
road Company. The roud which it is pro- ni
I posed to build will commence on the north &
side of the Great Kanawha near Charleston,
and run thence by the most practicable route ol
' as fur as may be on the north side of the m
' river to a point on the Chesapeake it Ohio at
road on or near the Kanawha Falls in Fav- cc
! ette county. ot

I rules arc to be strictly enforced this year. As
l the grounds have been purchased by the g,
' Association, the great problem is now how to
pay for the sunie. The following plan was
t adopted for the present year. A committee
! consisting of Messrs. George Edwards, J. A. tl
' Lancaster and H. P. McGregor was appointed si
; to value the lots and buildings on the camp se
t ground, report to the Board, they to tlx the
i rate of taxation, and any one feelingngrievcd
; at the valuation of his property can appeal
. to the Board for redress, i'lie chairman of k
the Boarding House Committee was directed *;
i to rent the boarding house for the .season,
. which was done. Aunt Minty llollingerand
! her daughter, Mrs. Hagans, will run that cs* tj
tablishiuent this year, commencing August
1st. They need no recommendation, as their
reputation as first class caterers is well estab'
lislied. There are a larger number of cot^ b;
| tages on the grounds at present than have ui

the approaching camn meeting promises to ai

purpose of taking such action as was deemed
proper in view of the proposed starting up ol

A great many people arc asking
what particular troubles Brown's
Iron Bitters is good for.
It will cure Heart Disease, Paralysis,
Dropsy, Kidney Disease, Consumption,
Dyspepsia, Rheumatism,
Neuralgia, and all similar diseases.
Its wonderful curative power is
simply because it purifies and enriches
the blood, thus beginning at
the foundation, and by building up
the system, drives out all disease.
A Lady Cured of. Rheumatism.
Baltimore, Md., May 7,1880.
My health was much shattered by
Rheumatism when 1 commenced
taking brown's Iron Hitters, and I
scarccly had strength enough to attend
to my daily household duties.
I ant now using the third bottle and I
am regaining strength daily, and I
cheerfully recommend it to all.
I cannot say too much In praise
of it. Mrs. Mahv E. Hkashkak,
173 1'rcsunanst.
Kidney Disease Cured.
Christiansburg, Va., >88r.
Suffering from kidney disease,
from which I could get no relief, I
tried llrown's Iron bitten, which
tw ? ?t" , - *
mine, recovering from scarlet fever,
had no appetite and did not ?eem to
be able to eat at all. 1 gave him Iron
Hitters with the happiest result*.
J. Kvm Montagu*.

VineSt.,IIarruburg, Pa.
Dec. a, 1881.
After trying different physician*
and many remedies for palpitation
of the heart without receiving any
