TWO MEN INJURED
BY AN EXPLOSION
Piston Rod Containing Water Was
Heated with Disastrous Re
sults at West Pittston.
There was n very serious explosion
at the Vulcan Iron Works, West Pitts
ton, shortly after 11 o'clock yesterday
morning, which will in all probability
result In the loss of at least one life.
William Henderson, a blacksmith, and
his helper, Matthew Smith, both resi
de. its of West Pittston, were very se
riously injured, the latter probably fa
tally, while the building was finite bad
ly wrecked and every window In that
portion where the explosion took place
Henderson and Smith wore al work
straightening a piston toad for the
Stevens' Coat company, and were heat
ing it in the tire. The rod Is hollow,
and It Is now thought there was some
water in it. The effect of the heat
turned this water into steam which
caused the roil to burst, the pieces Hy
ing in all directions. Henderson and
Smith who were close by, received the
full force of the explosion and was
.-.truck by the flying metal. :
Smith was struck by a large piece
and his side was torn open. Uoth were
taken to tho nttston hospital. The
shock of the explosion was felt
tlnoughoul tho neighborhood of the
foundry. Portions of the blacksmith
department were so badly damaged
they will have, to bo repaired. The
foundry will be idle for u fow days.
A half dozen other. persons who were
in the blacksmith shop at the time had
narrow escapes from the Hying missiles,
and several of them were thrown to the

ty assessment from J372.G00 to $121,000,
the amounts stricken off being $181,000
and $257,500 respectively.
The company appealed from the as
sessments on tho ground that the
buildings and plants In question were
pnrtly dismantled when tho assessment
was made and were therefore not lia
ble to full assessment. The judge de
clares this point to bo well taken and
ordered the following reductions In tho
city nssissment: Saw mill and ofllce,

surrounding land and improvements,

After the Now Assessment Is Effect
ive the Argument Raised by Luth

Viaduct Would Put Us Beyond
the Debt Limit Will Not Have
Force West Scranton Councllmen
Arc Waiting to Take Advantage
of Opportunity Offered.
The West Lncknwnnnu avenue via
duct nu-istlon Is likely to again become
the subject of discussion nnd debate In
the city councils before many more
Tho oblectlon that was raised by
Luther Keller In the inlunctlon pro
ceedings, which he brought against tlte
erection of the structure last spring,
wits that the Indebtedness which would
be created by the construction of the
viaduct would carry the city beyond
thn debt limit llxed by the constitution
of the state.
Such an objection could not be raised
after the assessment which Is now be
ing made by tho assessors goes Into
effect, because the city will then have
a margin of $700,000, or much more than
sulllcl"tit, admitting Mr. Keller's con
tention that the debt whlih would be
created would be an actual Indebted
ness, to be 11 correct one.
After the new assessment goes Into
effect all that would be required would
be the passage of another ordinance
providing for the construction of the
viaduct and accepting the offer of tho
Delawa.e, Lackawanna and Western
and Scranton Hallway companies to
pay for the structure, the city to merely
pay the damages which might u.iso.
The old ordinance cannot now be con
sidered binding, as conditions have
changed since Its passage.
It wii" learned yesterday that several
of the West Scianton councllmen are
merely waiting for the new assessment
to be completed before again bringing
up the question in councils.
