FATAL GASOLINE EXPLOSION.
Alan Killed and Another Badly
Burned at Astoria.
A terrible accident, resulting in the
death of George James Layzell and the
serious injury of Claude B. Hanthorn,
the latter a brother of the. well-known
packer, J. O. Hanthorn, occurred at As
toria Monday morning.
The two men were sleeping in the
cabin of the gasoline launch Hanthorn,
which was lying at the iron works dock.
About 4 :.S0 a. m. Hanthorn was awak
ened by the groans of his roommate,
and upon arising found the latter un
conscious. At the same time be detected
a etrong odor of gasoline. He then
struck a couple of matches, to get a bet
ter view of Layzell, and at the flash of
the second match an explosion occurred.
Hanthorn was enveloped in names and
his clothes caught fire. Rushing to the
side of the launch, he jumped over
board and extinguished the fla.nes. He
then returned to the launch, and, frantic
with the thought of the awful fate of his
friend must surely meet, ran into the
cabin, which was then a mass of flames.
Although he was being frightfully
burned, be made his way to Layzell's
berth, but the occupant was no longer
there. Then, half blinded and almost
dead from suffocation, Hanthorn stag
gered to the deck. He jumped into the
river aud swam, with much difficulty, to
the shore, where he summoned aid, and,
with all possible speed No. 1 engine
went to the scene and soon extinguished
Layzell's )ody, burned to a crisp, was
found in one corner of the cabin, in a
crouching position. The unfortunate
yoang man probably recovered partial
consciousness when the flames reached
him. Hanthorn was taken to the resi
dence of his brother, in East Astoria,
where bis injuries were attended to by a
physician. He is severely burned, but
will' recover. I He is almost demented
over the loss of his companion.
The gasoline escaped through a stop
cock in a tank, into which oil ran when
the launch listed.
JOHNNY MORAN'S INJURIES.
The East Oregonian Gives Full Details
of the Accident.
A distressing accident occurred Mon
day morning in the O. R. & N. yard at
Pendleton, resulting in serious and pain
ful injury to John B. Moran, brakeman
on a freight run between La Grande and
Umatilla, says the East Oregonian. .
Like many an accident it happened in
coupling, and this time it caught a care
ful and experienced trainman through
nobody's fault not even his own.
Mr. Moran essayed to make the coup
ling and found the pin stuck fast. He
went out and gave the signal to "slack
. ahead" a trifle. It -was answered and
he loosened the pin. Whenv the train
backed up the jar. fastened the pin again
and the difficult task of coupling under
these circumstances was to much for the
dexterity of even a man of Mr. Moran 'a
experience. His hand caught between
the bumpers, and he was carried two
car lengths by the natural motion of the
train before it slacked up and his hand
v was released. He managed to save him
self from fainting and falling, else one
more victim would have been added to
the list of railroad sacrifices.
' Aa it is, John Moran will not brake
again for many a day. There was a
compound fracture of the thumb and
little ringer of his right hand, the bones
protruding from the flesh. The first two
fingers were fractured and mashed in
the jointa. Nearly all the flesh was torn
.from the third finger, and this digit the
-doctors, were compelled to amputate.
They hope to save the rest of the - band,
although favorable conditions mast pre
vail. . .
Mr. Moran came up town -with bis
wounded hand bleeding profusely, bear
ing the pain with the grit and nerve nec
essary in the make-np of a trne railroad
er. In Or, Smith's office he was' oper
ated upon by Dr. Vincent, the company
physician, and Dr. Smith. He was soon
under the influence of anaesthetics, and
the finger was amputated and the band
dressed. ' . '
