LOne Man Killed;.One Bisbing and Anatti-.
er Terribly Burned.
A most terrible accident occurred about
six.o'clock last evening, at the Albion 011
Works of Messrs. Waring & Rafferty; sit
uated at Bennett's Station, on the Wesern
l'etinsylvanta Railroad, about three miles
north of the city, resulting in the destruc
tion of the entire works,'abenit five hundred
barrels of crude oil, and the death of one
man and probably fatal injury of two others.
It appears that a train, consisting of six
( teen tank cars, tilled with crude oil, had
been on the. siding at the. works,
several -of the cars standing in front of the
t furnaces which heated, the stills. " Mr. Laf
erty was engligked in unloading the cars
when a "bung in one of them near the fur. 7
_nace came out, creating so great a pressure
of gas ; as to blow the spigotout of a tank
on the side next the furnace,',:and forcing a
stream of -oil into the fire. The consequence
"E. was the- instantaneous" explosion of the
tank, which was followed by seven or eight
other explosions at short intervals. The
burning oil-from the exploded tanks was
Scattered-in every direction - , causing-death 'I
.and destruction to every perithable object
in the vicinity. . .
In an instant after . the first explosion the
entire. works were in flames, and the
ground for hundreds of feet around was. a'
glaring sheet of fire. Mr. Lafferty, a mem
ber of the firm,- who, as stated above, was
engaged in unloading the cars at the time
the accident occurred, was covered with
the burning oil,' which ignited his cloth
-log, • surrounding hum "-with a "sheet of
flame. In this condition he inadelds way
throughthe firy wall by which he was en
compassed to the river, and plunging in ex
tinguished-the' flames,- not; lioWever, be
foroxeceiving serious and berhapti - fatal in
jury. His sides, breast, hands and arms
were fearfully burned, and it is feared that,
in making his way to the river through the
"suffocating smoke . and fire, he inhaled
the flame 'and received internal injuries,
which may result in his death. His bands
were burned to - such an" extent' that the
flesh fell from them, leaving. the bones ex
posed. Mr. L. was removed to his resi
dence, No. 90 Wylie Street, this city, and
Dr. !Pollock Summoned to attend him.
His family were absent but have been tele
graphed to, and will arrive this re Wing.'
James lionnigle,- a boy about seventeen
years of' age, - an employe at the works,
wasstanding.near the train and: by the first
explosion was blown a distanee of over
thirty feet, and before assistance could
reach him was burned to a &lap. -He was
' the 'only support of a-widowed mothOr and
several small brothers and sisters. Con:
o'ner Clawson has been notified and-will,
hold an ingest on the bOdy this morning.
The stillman, whose name we failed to
learn, was at - works near the scene of the
, explosion a few momenta before - the occur
rence, but has not since been heard of. It
is-presumed that he perished in the flames.
-Theoilin a portion of the tanks was saved
by the cars becoming detached. As the
train Nta.s• standing' on a slight grade they
run back on the main tracksome_distance
frorn'the works and out of reach of the de=
- vouring element.. "
, The conflagration was still raging when
ourreporterleft the ground, and it is prob
able that everything of an inflammable na 7
turo within reach was consumed. We are
unable to make any osfimatoof the amount
of prupert , - , destroyed; but presume it will
not -Mt short of twenty thousand dollars.Ch pr,e

• Caugl t the
! Wrong Man. •
A fete eVenin since a young man, appa
rently from' th eonntry, judging from the
cut of his clothes and the materialof which
they made, carelessly sauntered Into
a well known gambling house on one of
onr principal streets, and ivalking tip. to
the bar asked for something to drink. The
barkeeper waited upon him, and after
drinking he seated ee in-in easy chair
in a,careleas manner,iwltore ho remained
for a eanolderablo ante without attracting
any notice: Finally, the "stool pigebTa- of
the establishment entered the bar-room.
and his attention was called to the stranger.
by the bar-keetier, who had obseryed a well
filled pocket book in the possession of the
"man from the country" when he settled
! for his drink. Seeing a speculation the
"pigeon'''. invited =the stranger to drink, an
invitation-he accepted, and-in a' short time ,
afterward .a, game of "poker" was Proj),:_ , Nl
and the stranger invited to take adianii,.
which proposition he :weeded to after
pressed to do so. A party 'of four retired..
to an upper room, kept for the purpose,
with the intention, doubtless, of "pluck
ing" their game; but the sequel proved
that they had "reckoned without their
host." • The game progressed smoothly for'
come time, the stranger winning and losing
. alternately, but invarialdylosingmorethan
he won t until lie was about five hundred
dollars short. Thinking they.hati tho great
er portion 9f his money, the party who had
sat down to "fleece" hint began the" bluff
game," with the Intention of "healing"
'hint out of the remainder or' Riming him to
quit the game. This, it appears, was what, he
desired. and his antagoitists being thrown
off their guard by his assumed green
nes.;' allowed themselves to be complete
ly taken in. lie managed toiglip in a "cool
park" upon them, and the first deal not
only won back what he had Previously lost,
but about two thousand dollars additional,
after which he -left: the establishment, re
marking as ho did 'so that he wpuid '"go I
and change clothes, as that country thyme
ry, although profitable, was. not 'comforta
ble:" It was.Msceitained that he was a
sharper from the East and had assumed
the disguise of a countryman; to enable
him the more easily to fleece his victims.

Robbery In AllegbenY.
'Monday evening Hippely Beekert's
feed sto e, at . the Troy Hill passenger car
station n Allegheny, was entered by some
thieves ho forced opon the shutter"of a
roar widow.. They first commenced .on
the safe, operating on it with a chisel, but
failed to open it, spoiling the lock, how
ever, w ich could not 'be 'worked neat'
morning without the aid of a locksmith.
Finding he safe a very secure one, they
next turned their attention to other parts.
of the:store, going through a desk which
Contained nothing but a quantity of papers.
Continuing their seaTch, they ciallected a
number of articles consisting of a small
clock, a gold pen, balance scales, micro
scope and silver-headed ptpe,mitich they
caried off, evidently retiring by •the same
way as that through which their entrance
Was effected. There have been noinerests

Tobacco Store Robbed
Some tline.ditring Sunday night the to
store of J. T. Lacock, on Federal
street, b few - doors• below.. the :suspension
bridge, was entered and robbed of goods to
the amount of sixty dollari. The thieves :
• gained admission from the rear,,and from
the manner in which the job was manipu-i
lated it was surmised that the robbery had
been done by some persons acnuainted with
the place. The police kept a sharp look
out and yesterday arrested a lad about six
teen' years old, named Charles 'Seely, on
suspicion of being one . of the guilty parties.
Seely on,being conveyed to the lock , up;
it is sad cronfessed to have bade hand in the
affair, and Implicated two of his wmpan
ions, one of whom Gedrge McNamara, was
arrested soon after./ The, officers wore in '
quest of the other chap",last night, and
doubtless ho will be found in the lock up
this morning, when a hearing will be had
in the eas3.
