It Is supposed that thcro was such

At tho time of tho explosion thoro
wcro twelve men on tlio barge, be

Walter Dillingham, In charge of tho
scow. In llio launch thoro wcro two
men, and all escaped Injury, tho blast
doing nothing to tho half ton of dy
naniltn which wus carried on the
scow except putting It Into tho water
when the scow went down.
The Iniinch llrolhcrs, of doling

that It wns not tho deslro of the Ter
