BIG BOILER EXPLODES.
Engineer Rogers and Walton Taylor,
Negro, Torn to Pieces.
Macon, Ga., Nov. 29.—By the ex
plosion of a boiler used with a station
ary engine at Lizella, a small station
10 ipilcs from the city, this afternoon
at 6 o’clock, two men were instantly
killed and two wounded, one of them,
according to the latest information
from the scene of the disaster, being
now in a critical condition.
The dead are:
The injured are:
James Wltham, whoso back is sup
posed to have been broken and whose
skull was probably fractured.
An unknown colored man.
The engine was used in a saw mill
belonging to the Rogers brothers, and
was in no way defective, so those In
position to know assert. It was
handled by Paul Rogers, one of tlie
owners of the mill, who had been dis
charging the duties * of an engineer
for a long time and who was consider
ed not only capable, but an adept
The day had been a rushing one in
order to fill the demands upon the mill
and overtime had to be done by the
crew. Shortly after 6 o’clock the
engine was stopped and the crew gath
ered about Engineer Rogers. The
men were drawing off their overalls
and discussing the day’s work, when
suddenly a terrific explosion came. For
miles around the noise was heard,
whilo the earth trembled from the
^reat force of the explosion. Build
ings near by rocked as thouab shaken
•«>r an earthquake. Windows were
broken into atoms and doors were
torn from their hinges.
The building In which the engine
and boiler were located was split
asunder and practically demolished.
Pieces of the immense machinery were
thrown hundreds of feet through the
air, falling upon the earth with force
sufficient to drive tbemstfeep into the
ground. Consternation throughout
the village was the result, and as soon
as the people recovered from their
fright willing hands rushed to the
mill to ascertain the trouble and to
render what assistance there was In
It Is the Impression, howeer, so the
man who brought the new* to the city
says, that the water In the boiler had
run low and that Rogers was attempt
ing to replenish it when the disaster
came. It Is thought he was turning
cold water into a hot boiler, with the
It Is the Impression, so the

came In to notify Rogers’ brother
