Thive carload.- of ammunition, exploding when a trail!
caught fire in Jersey City nt 2:lf o'clock this morninj,', shook
Manhattan Island and all the surroundinjj country, both in
New Jersey and Loup Island, with all the force of an earth
quake. The skyscrapers of low-r Manhattan shook like houses
of reed. The heavens for half an hour were lighted by a
preat stream of fire, which rolled now high, now U,w. Sparks
showered down in the immediate vicinity of the disaster for
fully five minute.
The explosion occurred on Black Tom. a peninsula of
solid rock .iuttinp out into the bay below the Statue of Liberty.
For hours after the explosion no one could approach within'
miles of it to ascertain the exact damape. It may safely
lie assumed, however, that no one on the whole peninsula
escaped alive. Black Tom is used as a freight yard by the
Lehigh Valley Railroad.
For a wide radius about the neck of the peninsula great
damage was done. Fortunately it is not a residential district
or the loss of life undoubtedly would have been staggering.
The force of the explosion may be estimated from the fact that
all over Manhattan windows were broken and persons were
startled from their beds by the terrific shock.
Through the business district of lower Manhattan the
streets were littered with broken glass. The police of the
region were quite inadequate in number to protect the goods
thus left exposed to theft, particularly the millions in gems
in the Maiden lane district. Calls were sent to Police Head
quarters and men detailed to duty in the street car strike
were hurriedly despatched to guard properly downtown.
At 2:45 another terrific shock occurred, lasting several
seconds and again rocking buildings in Manhattan upon their
foundations. The flames had reached another ammunition
car. By this time the Fire Department of New York was
being despatched by ferry to aid the Jersey departments in
coping with the conflagration.
The lire had already directed attention toward Black Tom
when the first explosion occurred. This lasted for perhaps
ten seconds, reverberating like ten claps of thunder rolled into
one. Belated homegoers paused in awe as the earth shook and
the lurid flames leaped to the zenith.
Therefollowed a terrific light, blinding in it.-, pure white
nes.s. which limned the highlands of the Jersey side and the tall
buildings of Manhattan with the distinctness of an etching. In
its dreadful glare all nature seemed spellbound. This died,
only to burst forth again, paling the sparks which had (hopped
like meteors when the darkness brought them into relief.
