SHAMOKIN, March 2. -- Two boilers at the Henry Clay Colliery exploded at 8 o'clock this morning. Four firemen were at one end of the boiler cleaning the fire, and had just vacated the spot when a terrible explosion followed. The boilers were located in the first set, at the entrance to the building, and were blown in all directions. Two of the boilers were lifted from their resting place and hurled along the banks of the Reading Railroad, sixty feet distant. Six others were also dislodged.
Samuel Hause and Daniel Horan, engineers, were struck by the flying debris and seriously injured. Fitzgard, a water boy, was the victim of a brick that had been sent high into the air, and slightly injured. Two other employees were also hurt. The boiler house is a complete wreck, and the loss is estimated at $20,000. The colliery was compelled to suspend work for a few days until the damage is repaired. An investigation into the cause of the disaster has been commenced.
