Dynamite Shocks Wreck Pleasant
Prairie, Wis.-Number of Dead
Kenosha, Wis., March 9.-With a
roar that was heard for 50 miles, a
flare that was seen fully as far and
with a concussion that broke win
dows more than 10C miles away,
three carloads of dynamite exploded
at the plant of the DuPont DeNemours
company shortly after 8 o'clock to
night in the village of Pleasant
Prairie, six miles west of this city.
It will be impossible for many hours
to tell accurately the number of dead.
Nearly every house in the village,
which contains 700 residents, has
been badly damaged and some of them
Ten Miles. Off.
Reports from the. country 10 miles
distant are to the effect that houses
eve A that far from the explosion were
It is believed inevitable that many
people have been killed or injured
through the surrounding country. So
far as is known at present, however,
but one man, E. S. Thompson, fore
man of the glaze mil', was killed out
right, but Charles Brady, superintend
ent, and Joseph Flint, the engineer,
are badly injured and may die.
The cause of the explosion is not
known at the present time. The plant,
which covered 190 acres of ground
was completely !w ecked, only one
building remaining. This is one of'
the magazines, and it is filled with
Four Came Quickly.
The first explosion took one of the
magazine buildings ana In quick suc
cession four others followed, but so
quickly that it seemed to be but' one.
The force of the concussion wab
terrific. Houses, barns and outbuild
ings in the immediate neighborhood
were swept from their foundations as
though struck by a torpedo. It is re
ported that hundreds of cattle and I
horses were killed, a telephone re
port from there stating that some of
them were burled entirely through
barns and residences.
It is rpported that the town of Bris
tol, Wis., 10 miles distant. was badly
wrecked, but details were not ob
tainable from there at midight.
Special trains were hastily dis
patched from Kenoshia carrying every
available nurse and physician. Sev
eral of the injured have been received
in this city, but none of them have
- sustained more than minor injuries.
Thought It Was Earthquake.
Cleveland, Ohio, March 9.-Thie
seismograph at St. Ignatious college
observatory recorded earthquake vi
brations tonight beginning at S8:45
-p. m. and lasting for 25 minutes when
they began decreasing. Father Oden
bach, observer, says the records show
two distinct shocks.
While we do not agree with some
things Gov. Blease has done, we are
bound to say that he has not done a
thing since his election that he did not
say he -would do if he was elected
when he was running for governor.
He is living up to his platform, re
gardless of who it -hurts or 'helps.
Orangeburg Times and Democrat. -
It is refreshing, during, and just af
ter those periods in our political life,
when real paucity of thiought andk
inane reaches after sarcasm, are per
mitted to see the light (?). through
the fulminating stage thunder of those1
near-Solomons, who elect to formu
late a species of rot, that they are
pleased to class as opinion, to be re
minded that some of it that glitters
There is a manliness in the ab ve
excerpt, from the Orange'burg TiAe
and Democrat that speaks for indivi
duality, and a desire for those things
that pertain to the welfare of the
whole- people; that, were it not too
far beyond the reach of the ordinary
malcontent mnigh,t lead to results,
hitherto un.reveal'ed, even in the land
If I am not seriously misinformed,
ther are constitutional provisions for
three components in the make-up of
our statehood, the executive, the leg
islative and the judicial, named, al
ways, not only in State. but national
life, in the above order, and hitherto
supposed to have been named in the
order of their necessity and .desira
Again, if I mistake not, the word or
term "governor" means a controller,
a supreme head, the officer to whom
the eyes of the whole people turn, in
the hour of peril. If this be not so.
why the offce?
We are well aware of the fact that
the two others have their distinctive
func-tions, and we know full well that
a two-thirds of the assembly, or a
pronouncement of unconstitutionality
by the jni.ciary, is permitted to over
rule the expressed will of the execu
tive: b."t only when the carrvin~ in+r~ -
effect of said will as antagonistic to
the well-being of the body politics, is
this contemplated by the framers of
our organic law.
We can discern some reason as to
why the legislative branch should, at
times, become timorous; for, bi-ennial
ly or quadriennially they are com
pelled to appear before their makers
and give an account of their steward
ship; but why the judiciary, safely
ensconced behind their heavy oaken
doors, a few hours of each month,!
should hold with such famished grasp
to the right of suggestion is a matter
somewhat beyond the ken of the unin
formed, when they are the court of
final resort in all things coming be
fore the courts presided over by those
holding the commission of the "execu
tive." They are in a position to be
exempt from the caustic utterances
of "The Rabble" and were they not,
their decrees can be clothed with such
mystifying phraseology and jumbled
composition of Kentish and Black
stonian obscurity, as to place the
whole Lesponsibility upon the should
ers of the et utlve; who. poor fellow,
has troubles enough of his own.
Words fail to express my satisfac
tion when I woke up this morning to
fa d that there was no ice, and, that
the fruit was still safe, for I know
that Gov. Blease was too busy to at
tend to it, good as his will might have
There has, for a time. been a slow
growth of an up-ish-all-over-ish feel
ing, of a somewhat cancerous nature,
threatening to poison the life-blood
of Jeffersonian principles, and, it is
high time that the X-ray machine be
turned on. So that we may have some
hazy conception as to the inner work
ings of this pestilence, and get busy
in the formulation or extraction of the
virus needed for its suppression.
In many of the cases, we are led to
conjecture that "isolation" would be
advisable, until such time as benefi
cial results are manifested in others,
well, you will pardon me, when I
assure you that the subject is of a too
sorrowful nature to permit me to
make the suggestion, which first pre
sents itself to a rational individual.
