Description
Full Text

Chicago, June 5. -- The tug ANDREW H. GREEN was blown to atoms at 1:45 this morning by the explosion of her boiler, just after having passed through the Rush Street draw with three mud scows in tow. The explosion was heard for a great distance, and all the buildings in the vicinity were shaken to their foundations. No trace of any of the crew can be found, and there seems to be no doubt that all on board the ill-fated vessel lost their lives. Five men are known to have been on board.
