who is swindled? It's all bosh for these

been killed, some 300 mon, women nnd
children have been soverely wounded
and many others have been more or
Viedendorp, tho scene of tho calam
ity, is n suburb of Johannesburg. In
it are huddled members of the poorer
classes of tho whites of the Rand,
Malays, Kaffirs and Chiuamcu, who
subsist for the most part by doing odd
jobs about the plnce, which is a rail
way tiausfer station for the mining
distiictsof the section.
Among the freight cars standing on
the shunt lines at Viedendorp Wednes
day wero eight trucks loaded with
dynamite. 'lho deadly stuft was hid
den under canvas coveiiugs to piotect
it from the rain and sun.
As evening was approaching there
was an explosion near tho freight
depot so awful in the intensity of its
forco that the ground for miles
around was convulsed as if by an
earthquake, houses rocked and fell,
masses of iron, earth, stone, wood
and human lemains wero hurled sky
wards, the windows of almost
every house in Johannesburg weio
broi.cn and people were blown through
the air like straws before a gust oi
wind. Tile explosion had tot n a hole

The w hole of that ouai ter of Johannes

almost ever. thing within a half mile
of the spot where the trucks had been
shunted for the night was rared to the
ground and crushed by the dynamite
beyond redemption; iron work twisted

On the ground were blackened heaps
of human remains, limbs, heads,

In 15 minutes after tho explos
ion occurred tho bodies of 40 dead
persons, all horribly mutilrftcd, were
picked up and carried away from the
scene, while tho searching of the ruins
continued without intermission. Over
200 of the most severely injured per
sons were also carried away and hun

taken to places wheie they might be
In addition to the wounded, thou

Probably tho best idea fof the forco

loaded have been driven 20 feet into
the hard ground.
