VOL. VIII. NO. 77. MORE TESTIMONY TAKEN CAUSE OF ENGINE NO 4 EXPLODING IS STILL A MYSTERY. Several Additional Witnp**c* Heard by the Deputy Coroner'* Jury on Thurs day—Another Session t > he Held at Huzlelon Tlii* Evening. On Thursday evening Deputy Coroner McCoombs resumed the hearing of wit nesses in the inquest on the death of the four D. S. & S. employes who were killed by the recent explosion. The Plain Spsaker givo3 the testimony of those who were on the stand, as follows: O. IJ. Muchler, of Freeland, who i> employed by the D. S. S. Company as trainmaster, testified: "It is my dut) to run trains, see that each train has cars and keep tracks clear. The trains pulled by the engine which exploded were loaded. Do not consider nine car.- too many. The crow reported for duty ai 5.10 a. m. and usually worked fourteen hours. I considered Chambers a reliable man. I have nothing whatever to do with testing engines. He would not report to mo in case of accident but t< the master mechanic, although 1 wouh. act in the absence of that official, i directed the crew that brought the wrecked engino to Drifton." Henry Tully was recalled and stated that thcyhad drawn eight cars from below the breaker a distance of nearly a milt and stopped at that point and picked U| another car. It was nothing unusual to draw nine cars. George Wagner, of Drifton, for four years in the employ of the I). S. & S.. and formerly in the Drifton machine shops and now round house manager, said: "I have charge of repairs when the machinist is ill. Was present when N0.4 was repaired and tested in February. My duties are to look after work reported necessary by the engineer. Had one order pertaining to a leak in the lines. Cannot state positively whether or no the boiler was burned. Examined the crown sheet carefully at Drifton and did not see any bad bolts. I can form no idea as to the direct cause of the explosion, only that there was a strong power to force ii downwards. It is safe to test a boiler by steam power above the 140 pounds. We test by water power every six months. No. 4 was always considered a good i engine, one of our first-class engines. I)o not know of any law in Pennsylvania requiring that an engine be tested at 210 pounds. Neither do I know that a report of the test must be posted in the cab. She had three safety valves to re lieve her. There was nothing connect ed with the remains of the wreck to indicate what was the cause of the ex plosion. There may have been ten or twelve broken bolts near the mudring. The engineor was a capable man. No. 4 was tested with 170 pounds of steam and 195 poundsof water. In an engineer's ex amination the fourth gaugo is to show both water and steam. New engineers test the water oftenor than older cxpor- leneod ones." John Rowland, employed by the Cross Crook Coal Company: "lam responsible directly to the general manager and superintendent. Knew of repairs of No. 4 the beginning of February although it did not come under my supervision. She was purchased as a first-class Bald win locomotive. Examined the boiler after the wreck and did not discover any bolts that were broken by the ox plosion. There were two tears in the crown sheet. The bulges wero evidently caused by a lack of water. Either the round house foremen or engineer would havo noticed the bulge had it taken place previous to the accident. The lireman was a capable man and had been in our employ about two years. All members of the crow wore young and faithful employes, the firemen and engineer being well experienced. Two guages of water would havo proved in sufficient in going a half mile without replenishing it. The engineer would certainly not havo put on the injector intentionally contrary to the general rulo, although it may havo been an over sight. 1 think the force of the explosion was downwards. Fifteen of the stay bolts were broken, all near the mud ring. The safety valves should be ex amined at least once a month. The tubes were all in good condition." John R. Wagner was next sworn. "I mechanical engineer," ho said, 4 *for the Coxe Manufacturing Company. I have nothing to do with the testing of the locomotives. 1 was familiar with engine No. 4. A boiler steaming heavily and in operation can be exploded only in one way, and that an overpressure. This pressure can be caused only by over hi** ..ig the crown sheet. The watei that, has been usod I think hud no effect whatever on the boiler. An analy sis of the water was made in September and on March 1 and found to contain some acid although not enough to traco its part. It would not be necessary to wash our boilers in a year. Our water supply is lit for use at all times. My opinion of the cause of the explosion was low water, the crown sheet pulling away from the side sheets. The crown sheet was corrugated to a great extent. I think it possible that the engineer put his injector on when the crown sheet was overheated. She was using up aboht 200 > pounds of wator per minute figuring that ske was moving at a rate of speed live iniles per hour. I saw a few bolts that had been broken previously. There is no law to my knowledge requireing bolts to bo tested by water or air power. The steel in the crown sheet was in first-class condition." The investigation was adjourned to meet again this evening. Notes from an Keillor's Hook. C. I). Llnskill, associate editor and solicitor of tho VVilkosbarro Telephone, passed through this section last week, and Saturday's issue of his paper con tained the following notes: Freeland, a busy, thriving town, con tinues to grow, and tho streets are stretching out. When 1 first saw the place, say a score of years ago, it was a little village in the woods. Now rail ways and electric cars bring it into close touch with the great wide world. It is noted for having an immense number of hotels and saloons. Mr. and Mrs. William Johnson and family were reasonably well and live near their old house, probably the first house built hero. Mrs. Johnson was a Birkbcck, one of the first families to settle in this region. Sanderson Seiple and children, Wil liam, Harry and Kate, refreshed me with excellent music and singing. Prof. Ario May berry was also present and we had a pleasing concert. Little Alvin, a fine singer, was at school. I called on Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sterner at the cemetery-keeper's house, ind found them in good health. J. L. Owen was busy and cheerful at his shoe store, where he has been well known for some years. Among other friends called on or in quired about wore: Matthew Johnson, Jesse Alden, George Iless, James Lewis, DePiorro Bros, and others. It was a now experience to glide through Drifton in an electric car. But the curves and trestle-work over which the cars dashed make it look decidedly unsafe. In one place there is quite a heavy grade on a curving trestle, that makes the ordinary traveler shudder. When the brake refuses to work, then look out. A large comfortable one-story hall has been built where the first one was burned. It is a great convenience when a large company wish to assemble. John Wagner, superintendent, is still active, though somewhat annoyed with rheumatism. Mrs. Wagner, nee Shell? hammer, was real smart. Dr. George S. Went/, was found in fair health at his ollice. Mrs. Wentz was not very well. The Dr. came to Eckluy, forty-one years ago, before there had been any coal shipped from there. He indeed seen wondrous changes in this booming region. Ho has five assistants. His residence and ollice occupy a sightly place, overlooking Drifton, Freeland and Jeddo. Did I call this a booming piaco? Well, it is, for several times a day a booming like thunder, or discharge of heavy ar tillery is heard for many iniles. This is where powerful explosives are set ofF by electric batteries, to tear up the rock and eartli over the coal. This outside mining is called "stripping." Drifton seems a lonely place to many since the death of Hon. Eckley B. Coxe. He was a father, a counselor, a director, an educated, far-seeing proprietor, a gentleman, a friend. An electric car carries us down along Black Creek, through Ebervale and Harlcigh and up over the hill into Hazleton. The Opening Play. The scone of tho opening play at the Grand opera house is an old plantation in Alabama, near the town of Talledega. The central figure is an old planter, a Southern gentleman of the old school, a type of the noble chivalry of tho old South. The war swept away many of his possessions and separated him from his son, who felt it his duty to fight for the North. The most interesting and conspicuous scenic feature of the play, as it is seen from different points of view, under all the changing light effects of a May day and night in a semi-tropical country, is the ruined stone gateway of Colonel Preston's door-yard. Here one of the. last attempts was made to repulse Sher man's march to the sea. A cannon was planted behind the masonry of the gate, but tho Federal artillery soon silenced it and reduced the strong post to ruin. Among the ruins the cannon still lies, covered with creeping vines, and in its mouth a meadow lark has built its nest. Into the peaceful life dominated by the strong will of old Colonel Preston, who represents in the new generation the survival of the old prejudices, and who thinks he hates the North as bitter ly as ever, and fights against tho en croachment of modern improvements, come the engineers from the North to lay out the route of a now railroad, and tin? principal engineer is tho old planter's son, long separated from him. The play reveals the diverse traits of many interesting personages. It in volves young love, charmingly expressed, and the reunion of hearts long sepa rated, and the re-establishment of family ties broken up by the war. Although dealing witli the past, as well as the present, it involves an intri cate story of family relations, which is so well told that the spectator is scarcely aware that he is listening to a narration. When Baby was sick, we gate her Castorla.' When alio was a Child, she cried for Castorla. When she became Miss, she clung to Castorla.

FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, MARCH 2:3, 1896. CONFESSION DENIED. \Vilknhitrreiin Says lie Tohl Falsehoods About the Hungarian Murder. Frank Shafer, a young colored man. on whose confession four men and two women were arrested foe. the murder of eight Hungarians on the VVilkosbarro mountain, and one, Noise Miller, found guilty in the first degree, made a further confession on Saturday, in which he says his previous statement was entirely false. lie also says that Miller is inno cent. The affair is well remembered by our readers. Dynamite was exploded under a boarding house, in which wore sixty Hungarians, and eight of them wore killed and many injured. Some time afterward Detectives O'Brien and Quigley arrested Frank Shafer on suspicion of being connected i with the crime, and ho confessed that Nelso and Jim Miller and their wives, John Bird, another man and himself had committed tho deed for tho booty they could get. They managed to get SI OO. which they divided. On this confession Nelse Miller was found guilty, as stated. The others are still awaiting trial. Miller's attorneys went to the jail and had several talks with Shafer, telling him that he knew ho was sending an innocent man to the gallows, and under this influence he finally confessed that his previous statement was false. He said that when first arrested ho was frightened and drunk, and did not know what he was saying, and that when he wanted to retract it afterward the detec tives threatened to hang him. Miller's attorneys will apply for a new trial. Detectives Barring and Mc- Sweeney, who were employed by the county in tho case, say that they are on the tracks of tho real murderers, and will have them rounded up in a few days, CriiHlied to I><>atli on .Saturday. An Italian named Frank Marsalles was crushed to death at No. 2 breaker, Drifton, on Saturday. lie was employ ed about the place in cloaning up the car tracks under tho breaker, and it was while doing this that ho met his death. The loaders were running cars down to the schutes and did not seo Frank, who was usually on tho lookout for them, and ho was struck by a gon dola. Tho car turned him to one side, at the same time pinning him between itself and a stone pillar which serves as a foundation for the breaker. Life was almost extinct when lie was taken out of tho narrow space, and he was removed to his home at No. 2, dying on the way there. He will be buried at St. Ann's cemetery tomorrow at 2 p. in.

A A-- Prize FiKhtiiiK K*>xinjj. County Solicitor Ulrich, of Schuylkill county, contemplates giving written no tice to the sherilT to prevent prize light ing and boxing matches in that county. His authority is taken from an act of the legislature passed March 1(5, 1868, and approved by the late A. <i. Curtiu, governor. The act is special to Pike, Schuylkill, Luzerne, Erie and Mont gomery counties. The act provides that prize lighting and boxing matches are declared unlaw ful, and any person engaging or partici pating therein, either as principal, sec ond or bystander, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction there of shall be sentenced to undergo an im prisonment not exceeding one year and pay a line of 8500, or both, at the discre tion of tiic court. The second section provides for the sliprilT to call out such force as may be necessary to prevent the same, and for that purpose lie shall have power to summon, verbally, every able bodied man between the ages of is and 45 years to attend him forthwith, and assist in maintaining the peace. The third section provides for the punishment of all persons not respond ing to the sheriff's call of a line of 8100. or imprisonment not cxcoeding six months. Conductor Tluiney'a Font llrokon. The physicians at Ifazleton hospital made an examination of Conductor Tim ney's right foot on Friday, and It was found that four of tiic bonos leading to the toes are broken. The swelling over the great toe bone and the instep is ex ported to be sufficiently reduced to make another examination of tlin foot today, and the full extent of his injuries will then be known. Tlio finding of these bones broken caused much surprise, as the opinion given out all along by the hospital people was to the effect that there were no breaks. After today's examination the foot will lie dressed, and lie will leave the hospital in a few days for his home. All tlio other cuts and bruises, outside of the foot mentioned, arc healing rapidly. ltondsliicn Sued for 61,305.75, Attorney 11.
