Salem. Ore., Nov. 11. Testimony
given by engineers at the coroner's
inquest being held here to investigate
the explosion of the boiler in the
basement of the Salem Hank & Trust
company, a week or so ago. and In
which three lives were lost, would
seem to Indicate that the boiler did
not explode because of the lack of
water or because of cld water bedng
turned on when it was hot, but tliat
It was due to some other cause.
While no definite evidence has
come out at the hearing, testimony
has revived a rumor here than an
explosive of some character might
have been used. Three engineers
gave testimony--Gus Strang of the
asylum, and W. E. Starkey and F. A.
Nitchey of Portland. The boiler was
a castlron one, and all agreed that,
such being the case, an explosion
would not have resulted because of
lack of water or because cold water
was turned on when the boiler was
hot. Jn such an event the boiler
wonld have only cracked. It was de
clared. Mrs. I. 11. Muchmore, wife of one of
the nien Mho was killed, also testi
fied, hut could not shed much light
on the causes of the accident. Some
witnesses declared that A peculiar
odor was noticeable at the time of
Ihe accident, and that It resembled
the smell of a fuse. The engineers al
so testified that, even though there
was a lack of water n the boiler and
even though cold water was turned
on, it be.ng of castlron. It would like
ly not have cracked but the radiators
wouid have given away first.
