^ABomb Without a Doubt/' Says Burns; Red Wagon Near the Scene
Office and the Sub-Treasury, and were reinforced by another company
later. For a time a squad armed with light Browning automatics stood
guard on the steps of the Sub-Treasury. It was decided within two hours,
however, that the protection afforded by the police was ample, and the
soldiers were withdrawn.
"A Bomb Beyond a Doubt," Says Burns
Their preliminary investigation convinced Federal, city and private
detectives that the disaster was premeditated.
"It was a bomb beyond a doubt," said William J. Burns, head of
the detective agency which bears his name.
It was found that the broken sash weights used as missiles were such
as are used in dwelling houses and in no building in the vicinity of the
explosion. The fractured faces on the fragments were worn and rusted,
it was said, as though tr% iron of which they were composed had been
broken long ago.
No hole in the pavement marked the spot where the wagon had last
been seen, and this was taken to show that some such explosive as TNT
was used, rather than dynamite, which exerts its force downward. As
tc statements that the wagon bore the name of a firm manufacturing
explosives, officials of that company said that none of their wagons
had been below Sixteenth Street yesterday. A report that three men
were seen running down Wall Street toward the East River just before
the explosion is being investigated.
A trunk check found beside the dead horse may prove to be, of some
importance. The number of th< check is 101,281. It was issued by the
New York Central Railroad at Saranac Lake to someone sending a trunk
from that place to Washington, D. C.
Mr. Burns said he thought the wagon contained a mine of explosives,
to be detonated by a device, long in use by dynamiters, consisting of a
battery and an alarm clock.
When the explosion came the Stock Exchange was immediately closed,
to guard against the loss of securities by messengers called upon to
deliver them through the crowds that thronged the financial district. As
it was, bonds valued at $85,000 and 2,574 shares of stock were reported
missing in the confusion. The exchange will open as usual at 10 a. m.
Street Strewn With Dead, Injured
And Wreckage Under Pall of Smoke
The explosion occurred just as the,
chimes of Trinity Church were tolling
the hour of twelve. Before they had
??eased and to the echo of crunching
glass the great avenue of finance re- !
sembled a battle-strewn field where
only dead bodies and the forms of the
injured lay in huddled heaps.
One eye witness mentioned the deliv?
ery wagon, which others said had been
driven up to ?bout a foot and one-half
from the curb in front of the United
States Assay Office, across tho street
from the Morgan office.
He said that while coming through
Wall Street ' he saw the horse and
wagon. The latter was light in color
und was such as is used by grocers.
Dead Scattered Over Street
Captain Joseph E. Engel jr., of the
Bureau of Special Service, Police De
rarment, was less than a block south
of Wall Street, on Broad, at the time.
Almost rocked from his feet by the
'luakelike vibration, he ran amid

Here Mr. Van Buskirk pointed to
two large chimneys on top of the Mor?

he said, a dense cloud of black and
yellow smoke poured and filled the of?
fices in the Mills Building.
"It was just like bein-; gassed," he
said. "We could not breathe and, un
til we reached the hall we believed
we were suffocating."
Found Weight and Piece of Cap
Another eye-witness was Morris
Whitman, who is employed at 66 Broad?

to the Bank of America ancl had
renched Wall and New streets on his
way back to the office when the shock
came. He and a young woman with
him were thrown to the sidewalk, but
he arose unhurt.
"It was the most ghastly thing I

New York there was a near-panic in
the financial section o"f Philadelphia.
Virtually all of the big Philadelphia
houses are either branches of New
York houses or else have branches
there. Drexel & Co. here is the Phila?
delphia branch of J- P. Morgan & Co.
For a time the close friends of E. T.
Stotesbury, head of Drexel & Co. and
serior vice-president of the Morgan
firm, feared for his safety. It was
known in high financial circles that
Mr. Stotesbury goes to New York every
Thursday for a meeting with the Mor?
gan officials. Mr. Stotesbury, however,
had foregone his usual New York trip
and was in the West on business.
The Philadelphia police sent reserves
and policemen in plain clothes in great
numbers into the financial sections
there to protect the big houses. Drexel
?t Co. ,was under heavy guard', and all
er?terlrrg were carefully scrutinized.
The same process obtained at the Fed?
eral Reserve Bank, the Stock Exchange
and the Custom House.
Gradually the excitement died down
and Philadelphia business became a
trifle firmer, though without volume.
Bankers there gradually reassured
themselves about their friends here,
though it seemed impossible to get any
worth-while information as to the cause
of the disaster.
Philadelphia banker? were not great?
ly worried over what might happen
there. Many of them inclined to the
belief that the explosion had been ac?
cidental. They were most anxious to
learn whether any of their friends in
Wall Street had been killed or injured.

Philadelphia private banking firms, said
he believed the explosion had been ac?

Officials of the Department of Justic
said tho lack of Congressional appro

investigators that can be assigned t
the Morgan explosion. They said that !
the appropriation was pared from i
$2,725,000 to $2,000,000 and a number of !

posted extra police about the Stock

other buildings in the Lasalle Street ?

The battered remains of the wagon j

patrol wagon which transported the !
twisted pieces of iron also brought sev- j

Much mystery was attached to the
twisted and battered wreck of what
once had been a touring car, standing
at the Wall Street curb, directly in line
with the explosion. It was more than
two hours after the first blast when its
owner, D. S. Beiden, a South Orange
(N. J.) jeweler, appeared on the scene
and claimed what was left of his car.
"I came to New York to-day," he said,
to see my accountants. I stopped my 1
car alongside the Morgan office and
left u about ten minutes before the
explosion. That's why I'm here now." i
Aside from a few bits of wood, the !
only trace of the wagon that blew up j
was a bottle of pills the driver evident?
ly had been taking to relieve an attack
A chauffeur's card bearing the name ;
of Jerome H. McKean, 1407 Nelson Ave
nue, the Bronx, was found in the street
after the blast, and for a time it was ;
believed he had been driving the dyna
mite wagon and had been killed.
A fire scare added tj the panic of the
tenants in the Iselin Building just af
ter the 9hock. All the awnings on the
front of the building were ablaze.
A tenant on the thirty-eighth floor
of the Equitable Building notified the j
police that a piece of a wagon axle
had been thrown through his window. !
One freak of the blast was that :
none of the workers of Albert A. Volk j
Company, house wreckers, who were
clearing away the site of tho Stock
Exchange addition at Wall and Broad
streets, was injured.
While the excitement was at its
height a photographer was permitted
to make a picture of the interior of
the Morgan offices. When he set off

It was a common sight an hour after
the blast to see men and women with
bandaged heads and faces circulating
through the crowd. Virtually every?
body who was on the street had been
Where millionares' luxurious auto?
mobiles are often parked, at the curbs
of Broad and Wall streets, in the
afternoon were solid rows of ambu?
lances, one backing in as another
pulled out carrying away the dead and
wounded. Such a scene of carnage
had never before visited New York's
great financial center. The great Bank
of England witnessed a similar scene,
however, barely four years ago, when
flocks of German Gothas plastered the
vicinity of that institution with high
explosive bombs. And a similar scene
during the waivwas also enacted within
a stone's throw of the Credit Lyonnais,
the big banking institution of Paris.
Except for the steel netting which
protected the big plate glass windows
of Morgan <fc Co., the strength of the
blast might have driven shattered
glass into the building with such force
as to have killed virtually every one
in it. The Wall Street side of the
building mot the full force of the ex- !
plosion. The netting bulged inward,
breaking the blow before it touched
the glass. The unprotected windows
of the 1'nited States Assay Office,
opposite, a more thinly peopled struc?
ture than the Morgan office, were ob?
Virtually all of the sidewalks in the
financial district were closed to pedes?

broken windows was continually fall- j
iri*lc to the street and the police or-1
dcred building owners to rone off the
hi addition to being one of the most i
prominent professional women in the I
United States. Miss L. G. Jones, the |
assistant cashier of the Bank of Cuba,
at 34 Wall Street, is one of the most
fortunate. Just an instant before the
explosion Miss Jones left her desk to
telephone her mother. The blast oc?
curred just as she reached the phone :
and her desk was buried under ti
glass partition, a cabinet and other!
Had the explosion occurred a few |
minutes after noon except on the hour ;
the death roil might have been
hundreds. Stenographers, clerks and |
others from the nearby build'ngs |
had just begun to emerge intr. the
street on their way to luncheon. With- I
in another live or ten minutes the I
street would have been crowded. In
stead Only the first trickle of those <
a trifle ahead of time, headed for the !
choicest luncheon seats, was caught.
The great statue of George Wash
ington in front of the Sub-Treasury '.
stood through the affair without a ;
scratch. Pieces of flying metal gouged |
holes in buildings in every direction.;
even cutting r. large slice /rom a win
dow on the second floor of the Bankers
Trust Building at Nassau and Wall.
The United States Assay Office, the j
Morgan structure ana other buildings ;
were pockmarked as if with shrapnel.
Within an hour after the affair hun- '
dreds of persons, thoughtful of the
anxieties which they knew the news
would bring to their families at home, I
besieged the offices of a telegraph
company on Broad Street to send reas
suring messages. Extra clerks had to ;
t be recruited to handle the counters and
keep the crowd in line.
Workmen from the gas company
were on the scene with promptness i
and immediately cut off all gas mains j
leading into the part of the financial
district affected. As soon as possible
afterward workmen entered all the ;
buildings rocked by the explosion and!
made examinations of pipes and fix?
tures. When these examinations were i
finished the gas was turned on again.
One of the guards who stands in
front of the Morgan Building was j
nearly knocked off his feet. When he
regained his equilibrium sufficiently
to look at his watch he found the crys?
tal broken and the time piece stopped
at exactly 12:01.
A clerk named Tracev, employed in
an office building on W'all Street, ad?
joining the Morgan offices, narrowly
escaped being dashed to death when he
was thrown out a window on the sev?
enth floor by the force of the explosion.
One of his feet caught in an awning
in such a manner that it left him sus?
pended head downward from the win?
dow. After dangling in space for a
few moments, he was pulled back to
safety by his office mates.
Many Articles Picked Up

A miscellaneous assortment of per?
sonal property was found in the im?

four large burlap bags.

names of "S. Lenkowitz and E. Blanche,
