-Workmen, members of the Degfetj of

and under the scores of Chinese lan
terns and the electric lights, it was an
animated and inspiring scene when this
team of twelve stalwart Workmen,
headed by their captain, S. A. McFad
den .appeared on the scene.;. The mem
bers were diseased in their natty sailor
uniforms blue sailor i blouses, white
duck trousers and blue sailor caps

a round of cheers. The team was soon
followed by the Salem Military Band,
and the games,. Indulged in by a large

literary program, enjoyed, to' the full in

At -10 o'clock a space in the form of
a large room was cleared, the company
occupying chairs about this space, and
the team gave an exhibition drill, the
same that won the f prize in Portland.

TWO MEN JN EXAMINING A BAR
REL FILLED WITH - AfOHOU
STRIKE A LIGHT. AND ANTER
RIFIC EXPLOSION WAS THE RE
SULT. . , r
Four men burned or injured, one fat
ally, is the result of an explosion of a
barrel of alcohol, in Portland yester
day, and the wonder Is that more peo
ple were not hurt, for . the ! accident
happened in a cracker factory where
over j 100 people are. employed. The
Portland -Telegram of last evening, in
telling the, details of the awful acci
Tor men were burned or, injured, one
fatally, by the explosion -of a barrel of
alcohol in the factory building of the
Pacific Coast Biscuit Company, corner
of Eleventh and Davis streets, at 10:80
o'clock this morning. The explosion
shook the building from the cellar to
the roof, and caused a panic among tbe
100 or more employes, many of whom
were girls. They rushed . pell-mell
down the stairs to the street; and sev
eral were overcome by the excitement.
None, however.- was. Injured. The fire
resulting- from the, explosion did less
than- $100? damage, being extinguished
by the automatic sprinklers.
The biscuit factory is a big three-
story structure, which occupies half a
block fronting on Davis . street,, be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth. The third
floor is used almost exclusively for a
shipping and . boxing department, i it
was here that the explosion, occurred.
Adam Brill, assistant foreman, and
James Grlfiln. an assistant In the ship
ping department, were examining a
barrel of what they supposed contained
vanilla extract, in an endeavor to find
out how. much was in tbe barrel.
' It was too dark for them to see with-
lut a ht. Brill got a piece of pa-
per, "set fire to It and held it over the
hole in the too of . the barrel.
Hew as about to peer in when there
was a terrible explosion. - The barrel
contained alcohol Instead of vanilla ex
Griffin, who stood In. front of the bar
rel, was thrown about 10 feet, his body
a veritable ball of fire. The burning al
cohol literally covered him from head
to foot. J The - concussion "broke his
rlght.leg. -.....,. : .
He fell 'against Lee Rosslter. the as
sistant snipping cierK, wnose cioines
were immediately set on fire. Unmlfid
ful of his own danger, however. Rossi
ter fought bravely to save Griffin from
tbe flames. .. ; . .
Henry Moy, a boy helper. In attempt
ing to brush the fire from - Rossiter's
clothes. burned his own hands and one
foot. i .-.-'.'-1- . .
Adam Brill, who was close to the
barrel when the explosion occurredi
had a remarkable escape. Although ha
was burned some by the blazing spirits.
most of -it went toward Griffin, and
Brill's Injuries are not considered seri
ous, though they are extremely painful.'
The report of the explosion, the cries
of the injured. ' and then the Cry' of
fire caused a stampede among the em
ployes. They, were about 30 people, in
cluding -many girls, at work on the
floor where the fire started, and fall
rushed madly for the stairs.' The lat
ter are wide and easily accessible, and
these facts probably prevented a more
serious catastrophe, y
The explosion shook' every window in
the big building, and was heard by peo
ple outside. . . - " .- ' '
An alarm of fire was sent in from
box 9. at. the corner of Everett and
Tenth streets, and the firemen were
quickly on the scene. But their service
were not needed, for the automatic
sprinklers had mad short-work of the
flames. ' - 1-
The fire damage Is trifitng.but the loss
by water will-be fully $1000, as a large
amount of the finished stock, ready for
shipment, was badly soaked. . . -
TheTbarrel which exploded was a 60'-
gallon tank, and it is a wonder to tn
firemen that the, results were not more
disastrous. The company officials were
"unable to account for the explosion, as
the rules are " very strict In regard to
the use. of fire.
The statement that Ifrlll held a light
ed paperto th'e! barrel was made by
Griffin, at the hospital, this afternoon.
He said they thought that It contained
vanilla extract; In fact, he still thinks
so. ' . ' 1 : :
Griffin's burns are of a most -serious
nature, and little hone is - entertained
for his recovery. Drs. Card well and
Tllser were called Immediately after
the fire, and they ordered all four men
sent to the Good Samaritan hospital.
At that instltu tlon is was decided
that Rosslter. Brill and Moy could go
to their homes for treatment. Dr. E.
II, Thornton dressed their wounds.
Griffin is 60 years old and single. He
lived at 287 East First street, and had
been employed by the Biscuit Company
several . years. '.:,-'
