of the residence or General Harris
G--ay Otis, publisher of the Times at
15 p m . have kept the city in
a ferment of excitement.
Within a minute after the ex !
plosion, instant Ignition of gas from
pipes throughout the building caused
the flames to dart from a hundred
windows and leap far above tle '
roof. Its force was the greatest In
the heart of the building direcilj I
undT the composing room. Men.
working, were thrown to the ground
and lynotype machines tumbled over
like a house of cards.
There -were "115 workmen In the r
buijding at the time, a half hundred

escape and were forced, finally to
jump from the second and third
stcry windows to the street below.
The most serious injuries were the
results of these leaps for life. Even
this opportunity to escape was de
nied to those who are numbered
among the missing, buried under the
ruins . They were crushed to death
under the crumbling walls or suffo
cated by pmoke and flames.
The Times got out its regular Is

against which it has waged bitter,
warfare for 20 years, with the re
sponsibility for the destruction of
the plant and the consequent loss
of life and property.
Officials ot various unions have
been prompt to disavow any respons
ibility and to offer assistance in the
detection of the perpretator.
The city had hardly awakened to
the awfulness of the disaster when
news that a dynamite bomb had
been found undr the house of Felts
Zeelander. swelled the excitement.
The bomti one of the clock work
kind had ben timed to do its work
at the exact moment the explosion
occured -t the Times building, but
through soma flaw the mechanism
failed to explode It on time.
The finding of this bomb was suc
ceeded by the discovery of an
other under a window of the resi
dence of General Otis. This bomb
was concealed in a valise under some
bushes. It was discovered and was
thrown into the street where it ex

The Bowen and Hubbard undertaking

Yesterday an effort was made to
get word to the governor of the state
asking that permission be granted to

It was understood yesterday after
noon that the permission had been
granted and another trip was made
to Nacd for the body and tho re

"When nil was ready to start for

allow the remains to ho taken from

had been made to pay the demands of

for the undertaker to return to B-J

in the adobe house where It had been "

Returning from Shore Leave
U. S. Jackies Thrown into
River by Capsizing of ! heir
NEW YORK, Oct 1. Several sail
ors from the battleship New Hamp
shire were drowned by the upset
ting of a tender in North River off
152nd. street tonight. Estimates of
dead vary from 12 to as high as
30, but this is not tho official. No
count has been made of the number
aboard the tender and as many men
have shore leae", It will' be Imposs
ible accurately to fix the estimate
of tlio missing tonight
The sailors were returning to the
New Hampshire after shore leave
and more than 100 of them, it Is
estimated, had crowded aboard the
tender which was being towed to
the battleship. The craft was either
swamped or was upset and the en
tire load ot Jackies was plunged '
into the water. On board the New
Hampshire 61 with wet clothes were
counted. Indicating merely 61 had
been saved leaving blank the mof o
serious gap of the possible dead.
As 230 men from the ship had
shore leave tonight there was no
way of ascertaining just how many
were aboard tho tender.
Midshipman Godfrey Do Chavlier,
who had charga of the tender, was
taken from the water unconsious
and is in the ship's hospital. It
Is reported he saved 15 sailors bc
for exhaustion overcome him.
