at oclock lust evening while lying at tier dock ai Randolph street and the river It in reported that thirteen people were killed The explosion was a terrible one aud a column of mnoke shot 200 feet into the air succeeded a second later by a whirlwind ot flame which illumined bridges buildings water and spars In a fearful glKre The startled crowds rushed to the river banks docks cnd bridges and soon the scone was thronged with an immense crowd The Department at Work A general lire alarm had been turned in and soon flfty streams of water from the steamers aud flro tugs were pouring into the hold ot the big iron boat through the gaping hole amidshtp from which the flames poured in r torrent The Tioga which wua one of the largest and finest propellers on the lakes is badly wrecked her upper works being nearly blown away and lior woodcti work being badly burned At 10 oclock the fire was so far under con trol that the search for tho victims of the explosion was begun Hlacktmeu and Mangled Corpses Throe bodies wore soon brought out blackened and mangled They were ap parently the remains of unfortunate mem bers of the steamers crev caught aboard at the tima of the explosion When the explosion occurred there were between ten and fifteen men in the fantall of the boat while scores of others were forward There were also several stevedores on tho dock and In the warehouses

dead and wounded men had been taken from the boat and it WHS then believed that no more than eight others were iu the hold These men are doubtless dead as ten fire engines have poured tons of water into the big hole just above the spot where they were at work nt thu time of the explosion It will be at least another day before the water can be pumped from the hold and the bodies re covered There is good reason to believe that the explosion was caused by gas gen erated from oil barrels which were stored near the fantail Tho Xilat of Casualties The following are supposed to have met their death

twisted as If it were so much paper It was impossible to make an accurate es timate of tho damage owing to the fact that the stern settled down iu the muddy bottom of the river and the ma chinery compartments were filled with water Forward of the boilers the boat was comparatively uninjured Capt Phelps made an examination of the four compartments which are all separated steel bullcheads and that they were entirely Iree oE water It is likely that the most of the cargo will escape damage A FRIGHTFUL DISASTER That Have Ueen A Terrible One Seven 1ersoiiA Drovrneil HALIFAX N S July Dartmouth last night the ferry lauding stage while crowded with about 500 persons collapsed and they were thrown into the water The j disaster was caused by the slipping out of place of the chtiin which held

mass of shrieking struggling humanity packed as closely in the water as they had been on tho dock Kescuers Quickly at TTork For some minutes there was aconfusee crowd of men women and children strug gling in the water A dozen young men leaped to the rescue and the drowning peo ple were rapidly passed up to men stand ing on the wharves The work of rescue was so rapidly performed that a great jority of those who fell in vrere saved from death The rescuers worked until ex hauated helping the people to land until there were no more insight and those who could not be saved had sunk out of sight The work of rescue was a heroic one and to this heroism and the promptness with which it was begun can be attributed the j comparatively small loss of life Four i bodies have been recovered and
