Patrick McCoy, fifty six years old, of Brighton street, Rar itan Bay Park, was knocked uncon scious by the shock, but soon recov ered and refused medical attention. The force of the explosion, which oc curred at Yetman and Elliott ave nues, broke windows in several near by houses and the boiler flew in the air over the tops of houses and landed in Johnson avenue more than two blocks away. It crashed through a fenco and ripped pickets off for about ten feet. Caspari at the time of the accident which occurred at 11 o'clock yester day morning was about to connect a small lead pipe used to force the steam Into the water pipe, when without warning, the tank exploded.

The boiler is only about three feet long and has no safety valve on it to regulate It. The explosion ehook houses within tho vicinity and caused people to run from their homes.

George Washington's Message to YOU By George (Being Excerpts from Interwoven as is the love of liberty with ligament of your hearts, no recommendation of mine is necessary to fortify or confirm the attachment. Be American Only Citizens, by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of AMERICAN, which belongs to you, in your national capac ity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appelation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, man ners, habits, and political principles. You have in common cause fought and triumphed together; the Independence and Liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts, of common dangers, sufferings and successes. Support Your Government This government, the offspring of our own choice, unin fluenced and unawed, adopted upon full investigation and mature deliberation, completely free in its principles, in the distribution of its powers, uniting security with energy, and containing within itself a provision for its own amendment, has a just claim to your confidence and your support. Respect for its authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in its W ashington His Farewell Address.) measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of true Liberty. The very idea of the power and right of the people to establish Government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established Government. Beware of Political Obstructionists All obstructions to the execution of the Laws, all combi nations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artifi cial and extraordinary force; to put, in place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community. Warns Against Pro-Germanism Towards the preservation of your government it is requi site, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppo sitions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care and spirit any innovation upon its principles, how ever specious the pretexts.
