Tremendous Explosion on Roard the Steamer
Jalta, at Vallejo, California.
Vallejo, Tebuary 27th. At G o'clock
this morning tho steamer Julia left Georgia-street
wharf at South Vallejo. Nearly
seventy passengers were on board when
she left the latter place, many of whom
were laborers employed in tho lumber
yards in the vicinity of Vallejo Junction.
The deck hands were just hauling in tho 1
lines prepatory to leaving the wharf at
South Vallejo, when a terrible detona
tion was heard aiid an immense volume
of flame burst through tho center of tho
vessel and shot high into the air. Tho
greater part of those on board at tho
time were thrown violently into tho wa
ter by the force of the shock, several be
ing 'killed outright by being struck
with the fragments of the ves
sel and her machinery, which flew
about in every direction. The loud re
port caused by the explosion attracted
tho attention of numbers of persons liv
ing in tho vicinity, and a great many
men came in boats and on foot to succor
the unfortunate passengers. The steam
er caught fire immediately after tho ex
plosion, the flames spreading to tho
wharf, consuming the telegraph office and
CAI-TAK OEDOC'S ACCOUNT.
The master of the Eteamer, Captain
Gedgo, says that he was on tho wharf as
usual collecting tickets from tho oncom
ing passengers when the signal for de
parture was given. Ho locked the gate
from wharf to gang-plank, and then
walked elowly down aboard the steamer.
He heard the bell from the pilot house
sound for the engines to bo started, and
then heard tho first whistle usually blown
just before heading out into tho stream.
He was just about to ascend the stairs to
reach the upper deck and go thence to
the pilot house, when the explosion oc
curred. Ho says he felt a shock, and
then everything darkened. lie reached
out his hand and turned up his coat-collar,
and that is all ho recollects. lie
was found there aftenVards, postrate,
covered with debris, but only slightly in1
jured, beyond ho severe ahock. t1
When those not killed by tho explosion
had recovered from the shock caused by
it, a scono was presented which was la
mentable beyond all expression. Num
bers of persons having friends or relatives
aboard tho ill-fated steamer rushed to
the burning wharf, and heedless of the
flames which lapped about thclri, called
ill the most piteod3 manner tho names of
loved ones, bursting into sobs and wails
of the deepest grief when thoy found their
cries unanswered. The men on the
wharf did all they could, which was but
little, most of the passengers having
been below docks at the limo of the acci
dent and henco imprisoned when it fell.
It had been customary for tho passen
gers to go below decks in tho morning, a.
it was cold and foggy, and this accounts
for the fearful los3 of life. The few who
were on deck and were not rendered in
insensible by force of the ohock, were
quickly assisted ashore by tho men on
the wharf. Tho horror of tho pceno was
deepened when the immense vats of pe
troleum stored on the wharf for replen
ishing the steamer tanks caught fire, the
flames spreading rapidly towards the
Starr Flouring Mills situated at the end
of tho wharf. An alarm was sent to
North Vallejo, and in a short time the
fire company were on hand, but they
were unable to accomplish anything, as
there was no wafer. Fifteen minutes
after the explosion, about six hundred,
feet of the wharf, a freight depot, and the
telegraph of&e were burning. The fire
men tried to get water from tho edge of
the wharf, but the tide was too far out
and they could do nothing to. savo the
property. When tho tide came in they
managed to get a supply of water and at
noon had the fire nnder control. Had
any wind been blowing at tho timo the
Starr Flouring mills building would havo
been destroyed beyond doubt.
SAVEJO THE SUTEnEK3.
While tho firemen and others were try
ing to save the wharf, a largo number of
boatmen were rowing around tho wreck
seeking to recover the bodies.
A number of hands from tho navy yard
and from tho steamer Iroquois nssisted in
every way possible to secure the remains
of the passengers.
While the Eearch was going on women
and children wero standing back from
the burning wharf, and their cries of an
guish were something terrible to tear.
As each body was brought to the surface
and placed in a shed on that portion
of the wharf not destroyed, tho crowd
would gather abound, and an exclama
tion of grief from somo one in tho gath
ering too plainly told tho tale that some
relative of the dead had recognized the
mangled remains. The first train from
San Francisco brought up a number of
anxious peopfe who feared that they had
friends on board the steamer.
None of tho persons on board tho
steamer at the time of the explosion
contd give any clear account of Tvhat had
happened. Ail they know was that just
as tho last lino was being thrown .off
there was a loud report and the poriioB,
of the deck over where tho fuel was
stored was" blown to splinters. Tho burn-
I ing debris was hurled in all directions,
and in a few seconds the wharf was a
I mass of flames. The greater part of those
who were not seriously injured by the
.explosion were so badly jarred that they
do not remember what happened after
the first shock. How thu managed to os
capo from the burning vessel is a mys
tery to them, but it is presumed that
they were rescued by tho boatmen, who
were quick in arriving at tho scene of the
A DISTAXT VIEW.
Thoso who viewed the burning vessel
from a distance say that it wai a grand
but awful sight. A light gray fog was
hanging over tho water at the timo, and
occasionally it would brighten into a fiery
red as the flames from thd burning vats
shot into the air. Then it would die out
again, and dull, reddish streaks, such as
foretold tho coming of tho day, would
spiad across tho water. Those streaks
intensified in color until tho whole sheet
of water for a quarter of a milo out from
the wharf looked like a sea of fire. Then
the air wonld become filled with flying
sparks and cinders, which wero to3sed
hither anil thither by the draught gener
ated by tho fire. When, an hour later,
the steamer had gradually sunk into the
mud flats until nothing ,but her upper
deck and flagstaff were visible, the water
had become black ns ink. Tho mud had
been stirred up from the bottom, and the
burned wood, both from the steamer and
wharf, added to tho murkicoss of tho
scene. All tby long nearly a thousand
people stood about the scene of tho disas
ter encouraging thosq who were trying to
save tho wounded and helpless or recov
er the bodies of the dead.
