Dozen Suffer Slight Injuries.
In addition lo these, a dozn or moio
of the employes, who suffered enmpar.i
tlvely slight, injuries aside from the
shod;, were taken directly lo their
homes. Twenty-live men and boys have
not as yet been located, either at their
homes or at. the hospitals. The ten tin
idenlilkd bodies account for ten of
these, and the ollieers of the company
say iliey feel positive that the major
part of the remaining lii'teeii are safe.
Tonight a groat force of men Is
searching the ruins by eleetrie light,
and the work will nut hi: stopped until
very loot of the debris lias been ex
amined, The I'eiilierthy Injector company's
plant occupied half a sipiare at the
i 'orncr of Abbott street nud Hrooklyn
avenue. II was composed of two brkk
buildings, separated by a sixteen-foot
alley. The rear building, in which the
boiler was located and which was com
pletely destroyed, was three stories in
height, r. t feet in depth and 100 feet
wide. The boiler room was located tit
the northwest corner of the building on
the tirst Hour. II was in this building
that most of the manufacturing -was
done. Tin- first Hour was utilized as
the engine and boiler room and a room
for testing the output of the plant, The
unlf-hing and brass manufacturing de.
partment was located on the second
tloor, and the third lloor was devoted lo
the foundry. It is impossible In tell
exactly how many men were at work
in the various departments of this rear
building when the explosion occurred,
but the ollieers insist that the number
was not over eighty-live. Then- were
four boilers in the plant, two horizontal
ones, which furnished steam lor the
engines, and two vertical boilers, which
were used solely for testing injcclois,
It was the horizontal boiler that was
In use this morning, which let go and
caused the awful loss of life. The
awful crash came without the slightest

PROVES A FAILURE
The Pittsburg Men Succeed in Crip
pling' but One Road, the Alle

I'lttsburg, Nov. -. Judging by ap
parent. -ondHloiis, the switchmen's
strike, inaugurated this morning, has
proved a failure. The strike was 01-den-d
by the Switchmen's I'liion of
North America, and tile claim was
made curly in the day by tile union
olliclnls that every road in the city,
with the exception of the I'lttsburg,
Fort Wayne and Chicago and the I'ltts
burg, Cincinnati. Chicago and SI. Louis,
would be tied up completely. The de
velopments of the day, however, dem
onstrated (hat only one road, the Alle
gheny Valley, was seriously affected.
On this road but one crew was at
work, and the road is badly crippled.
The company ollicials. while admitting
that freight tratlle has been practically
suspended, say that within t,wenty-four
hours they will have all Ihe men they
need and work will he resumed as
usual. The other roads affected Were
the I'.'iltimorc and Ohio, twelve men
out: Pittsburg- Junction (a branch of
the tialtimore and Ohio), lii'teeii lien
out: ihe I'lttsburg and Lake Idle, four
men out; the I't-nnsylvaiiia. llllecn men
One hundred and lilty would be a
high estimate of the number of men
who struck. None of these roads suf
fered much Inconvenience, because new
men were readily secured to take the
place of the strikers, and some of the
men, upon discovering that the strike
order had not been generally obeyed,
returned to their places.
Result of Dissatisfaction Over the

resignation of Ccorc, V. WoodiuiT, the
head ciftoh ..I tin- siiuad. .'i-. Won 1
rulf's resignation is as follows:
"I beg to tinder my lesignallun as

witli the distinct understanding that f
am not a i-andldatc for re-appoiinmcut

carried on the past two yea is, Wood

good salary in IS'.il'. lie had played

day. At the last annual meet

decided to have a board of graduate

Major W. S. Millar, chairman of the
TicpuhUcau city committee, has 'ilit-cl-ed
thai notices be sent to the execu
tive branch or the city eoinmUtec, ask
ing them to meet, in ids ollice on Ile

tlxing- a time for holding- a primary
election to poleet a landldale for ill"
controller. That is the only ollice to be
filled nt the F bruury election by lh
vote or the citizens of the city at l.nye.
It is nrobable thai the primaries will
not be held until well on In .lanuaiy.
duly a few moiuhc-is of vigilance
committees were retained as elected, at
ihe last eitv primaries, and chairman
.Millar will have the filling of vacancies,
which means that he will have the up-pointing-
of practically all the members
of tlic vigilance eominitUcs who will
conduct, the election, He said yester
day that Ins will name no oil" who will
not agree to give his services without
i est. lie will also endeavor lo have a
uniform day for ltepiibliea.ii primaries
throughout the ciiy. when candidates
for coiurolli r and the various ward
ollirts will be voted for. This will elim
inate th" t-osl of booths, so far as the
candidates for controller are concerned.
"As there Is only one city ofllee to lie
filled, il would be wrong to allow the
expenses to run up." said Chairman
Millar yesterday. "It would prevent
candidates from registering. II will be
my effort lo have the primaries con
ducted without ti cent of expense other
than the cost of printing- the ballots. I
believe it can bo done, and I'm going
to try it."
The men mentioned for Hie nomina
