destroyed property valued at $250,000.
The charred fragments of 43 bodies is
in the morgue and 114 additional
operatives bad not been accounted for.
It is probable that the number of dead
will never' be known. The dead list
Is estimated at 75. The entire Orover
factory was reduced to ashes within an
hour after the explosion; the threo
story block across the street owned
by Charles H. Dahlborg and 1 Ave
other small structures damaged.
When the boiler exploded it passed
upward almost perpendicularly, tear
ing a passage as It went, killing many
on the way. After rising high In
the air- it desended half the distance
and then swerving northerly, cut Its
way like some hugh projectile through
dwelling house fifty feet away and
pierced another dwelling further along.
Scenes of horror followed the wrench

machinery, collapsed with a crash

amid the mass of debris. Many fell
into a veritable fiery furnace. In

panlc-atrlcken as they sought escape.
Many fled down the stairways and

There was several interesting fea
tures about the balloting on the sen-
atorshlp. One, and among the most
notable, was the time taken In the roll
cull, which occupied a greater number
of minutes in each Instance than was
consumed in the entire session on
many previous days.
Several of the members explained
their vote, or gave reasons for the
choice they had made, but the most
startling of these was the declaration
of Mr. Orace, of St. Louis. Mr. Grace
is the author of the resolution which
stirred up the trouble for Mr. Nledring

said: "I have something in my system
which I wish to expel" At this
Juncture some one yelled: "Let her
go Gallagher." Then Mr. Grace re
sumed: "I have concluded that we
must have a senator. I will cast my
vote, and as I cast I will cast It till
hell freezes over and then skat back
on the ice. Put me on record for that
grand old man, Richard C Kerens."
When Mr. Harrington"! name was
reached he stated that he did not ex

declare his favorite. While he waa

Kerens said: "Mr. President, and
