of niindei, his victim being Isaac Hopper.
The case attracted a gre.it deal of atten

that Mis. Hopper, widow of the murdered
man, went on the stand In hehalf of the
sliver of her husband nnd tho second was
the fact that after being found guilty and
sentenced to twelve years In the peniten

trial, tho result of which was a sentence
The convicted man was taken at once
to the penltentlar. but before starting ho

the evidence on which to go the supreme
court. This sum was deposited 111 a local
bank with the understanding tint upon
piesentatlon of a certlllcato from the sten

tlio money was to bo paid over.
The records show that a Wiutleld man
who had assisted Judge J, V, Ileekuiaii
In Heed's defense, got tho rcntilied cer
tlllcato from the .stenographer nnd secured
the niouev, hut turned tiotio of It over, and
the iccords were withheld. As a result no
appeal was consummated to the supreme
court and the prisoner at Lansing has
been hoping and praying In ignorance that
ho had absolutely no enso at all before
the higher tribunals,

The explosion was due to a "hang" In the
turn ice. which sitrtdeiilv was lnoened and
dropped Into the molten metal below, gener
ating nn Immense quantity of gas so sud
denly thnt It could not escape by the ordl
narv me in, nnd the explosion followed.
Tho terrible los of life was due to a pe
culiar caiie. A few minutes before the
explosion occurred one of the top tillers
dumped a barrow or material Into the bell
of the furnace', which he had forgotten to
r.ile. This clogged the top of the film ice
and prevented the g is escaping A gang of
sixteen men, In e barge of James llarrlon,
was rnt at once to the top of the furn ice
lo remove the obstruction. All were cloe
l crowded around the bell of the furnace
removing the miterlnl whlrh hid ben
dumped on It, when then- was a terrific ex

terlal were hurled In all dliectlons. Plumes
ile.ullv g.ies and smoke belched from the
furnace top and the gang of men fell as If

was blown from the furnace top along the
metal loadwav to the elev itoi shaft, down
whlih he fell, and, striking on a car, was
cut In two. one h ilf of his bodv falling on
one half of the car ami the other Inlf on

The explosion wis heard all over Hrad

scene, but none expected to witness siieli
horrors A tollef crew wis quickly otgin
l.ed and went to the top or the furnace,
where lay lllteen men, bleeding, toin,
burned and iljlng. The Maims mid Miioko
were still coming fiom the fiirna. e and the
work of rescue was dangerous In tlio c

heads with cloths, the iecuers went hr.ive
