on the wharf at the time of the explosion, having
the Omeo from the deck. She looked all right, and

He never screwed it up beyond that pressure .The
Omeo's boiler was a good one. It did not give lum
any trouble. He was not in the habit of tampering
with the safety valve. He never allowed anyone on
board. On the day of the explosion the fires had
been banked since 9am. She was out towing a
steamer during the morning in charge of witness's
Mr Amess supplemented his evidence by saying
Riddett's son was a fireman on the Omeo, and was
quite capable of taking charge of her
James Alfred Riddett, in answer to Mr Amess,
said he could not tell whether the fires were properly
banked just before the explosion, as he did not go
below, but hejudged they were banked as there was
no steam coming' out of the funnel.
Edward Thomas Woodley said he had super
vision from time to time of the Omeo's boiler
His impression was that over-pressure cf steam
cursed the explosion, probably through the
jamming of a valve. A short time previously he
had put a smalll patch on one of the landings of
the boiler to save a small flaw from going any
further. The explosion did not occur where he
patched it, because examination of the debris
showed the patch in the same position. It was
blown out about 5 1/2in below the patch. The shell
was about 7-l6in thick. When he put the
patch on he had a good look at the boiler,
and there was nothing apparently wrong with it.
About two years ago when he repaired it he tested
the boiler with cold water pressure up to 1201b to
the square inch. It was all right then. He be-
lieved the boiler would have stood more than 75lb
per inch pressure when he last repaired it, a few
weeks before the explosion.
veyor for the Marine Board, said he was unable ln
to say more than had bcou stated in his report to
the board on the explosion. If the dome of the
boiler and the safety valve could be found he might
bo able to add some further observations. The
testing of a boiler up to 1201b with cold water
pressure would not be a guarantee that it would
resist 75lb steam pressure. A boiler should,
according to the Marine Board's rules, be tested
The inquiry was adjourned for a week
