clergymen in the committee, probably 20

Ventral Railroad, exploded ahem a -half"
.wile west of Millerstown, killing instantly
the engineer Mr. Moses Adams, of Oakland,
ohester Co., and a young man,,Mr. Nelson.
Bennett, fireman, of that place. The cause!
of the explosion, we understand, was, the
safety valve having been screwed down tea
tightly. The engineer had part of his bead,
blown off and his body was othernise mutat
mutilated. Mr. Bennett'a legs were both
broken and horribly mashed and he mural
so injured in the head. At the explosion.
the 'engine was separated from the tank, lit.

distance of, one hundred yards, lodging on a
bank some eight feet above tho track.
