I r ,
Work of Years Destroyed In Few
Minutes As By Some Great
Cataclysm of Nature.
The work of four years was destroyed In four minutes yesterday afternoon
Jit Pearl Harlor, when the entire frame crib and concrete work In the great
naval drydock collapsed and crumpled until tbo 1000-foot basin was Jammed
with a chaos of wreckage. The eight-foot layer of concrete at tbo bottom of
the excavation was heaved up with cyclopean force when the water in section
two had been pumped out almost, enough to ezposo it. The crib-work splintered
and the side collapsed.
With hardly a moment's warning, the great structure of false crib work
upheaved with its mass of top machinery of pumps, derricks and engines, whllo
the two adjoining sections entirely collapsed and, within four minutes, became
part of the mass bf splintered Umbers, twisted Iron and steel and Jagged blocks
of masonry.
RUSHING TO SAFETY.
More than a hundred workmen wero engaged in and on all parts of tho
stnicturo, when a direr cmergod from the corner of section three and running
along tbo timbers to the shore shouted that the structure was giving away.
Warnings were shouted from all parti and the men scurried like rati to
safety, Hardly had tho last man passed from the structure to the shoro, when
a mighty surge took place in the center, or number two section, Llko a great
veesel which Las been sunk, the five ttoded flo crib-work rose steadily as if
on soma gigantic piston rod.
Hlowly but surely tbo timbers emerged from the water, and then began
to crumple, There was a rending of huge beams, splitting and tearing from
their Iron-bound sockets. Great derricks and cranes toppled over on tbo trembling
and crunching ;nM and smashed through tbo tough woodwork,
