ROCK ISLAND. ILL:
DEATH IN EXPLOSION
Julius J. Krell Receives Fatal lnju
ries at Hartz & Ullemeyer's
0AUSE OF ACCIDENT A MYSTEBY
Building is Shaken and Stock Con
As the result of an explosion of
wood alcohol at Hartz & Ullemeyer's
drug store. Third avenue and Twen
tieth street, about 4::)0 Saturday af
ternoon, Julius .7. Krell was fatally
burned and a fire was started that
damaged the stock of the firm.
The accident was one of the most
terrible that has taken place in Bock
Island in many days, and it is remark
able that the results were not more
disastrous than they were. Barrels
containing' other explosive liquids
were kept near the scene of the fire
and' their explosion would probably
have 'endangered other lives and caus
ed the entire loss of the building and
At the hour above stated young
Krell went to the cellar to draw a
gallon of wood alcohol from a cask.
A couple of minutes later William Ul-
lemeyer, who was in the store, heard
him cry in pain, and upon going to
the back room he met the lad coming
out of the cellar with his clothing in
11a mes. Mr. I'llcmeyer attempted to
smother the fire with his overcoat
but was not successful and he then
used the hydrant.
KxploMon Is Terrific
Having quenched the tire he ran to
the telephone to call the tire depart
ment, and as he was doing so there
was a terrific explosion vhieh was
heard several blocks. The floor over
the alcohol cask was raised and -a
show case was thrown over upon ano
ther and broken. The cellar windows
were blown out and the entire place
wiis enveloped in smoke.
Both Mr. I'llemeyer ami the boy
ran out of the building and the latter
was assisted by members of the
crowd that quickly congregated to
(.'ash's feed store and later to the of
fice of Dr. 1. 15. Knnis. The ambu
lance was then called and he was tak
en to St. Anthony's hospital, where
Dr. K. M. Sala ministered to him.
Over two-thirds of his body had
been burned and the skin came off
with the clothing. There was no
hope of saving his life from the begin
ning, but everything possible was
done to allay his suffering which was
intense. He was placed under the in
fluence of an opiate, and kept in that
condition till death came to his relief
at : o'clock vesterdav morning.
Spread of Fire l'rvventvd.
The prompt arrival of the fire de
partment prevented a spread of the
llame.s anil the chief loss to the firm
is through smoke, .lust how extensive
this is could not be ascertained today,
but it was stated that it was fully
covered by insurance.
The cause of the explosion is i
mystery which may never be explain
ed. There was electric lights in th
cellar so that there was no reason
for the use of a match to draw the
alcohol. The unfortunate young man
was not a smoker and had no ligh
about him so far as is known.' He
had been cautioned against striking a
light while in the cellar. It is evident
that there was an explosion of.lhe
vapor in the air that set his clothing
afire and the explosion that damaged
the building took place when Ihe
flames were communicated to the
contents of the barrel.
The unfortunate youth was 17 years
of age. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs.
D. 1'. Krell, 513 Eleventh street, to
whom his sudden death conies as a
crushing blow. He was a model
youth and a great favorite among his
associates. He had been in the em
ploy of Hartz & Ullcmeyer about six

Resolution Adopted to Present to
National Meeting of American
Federation of Labor.
Subscribe for The Arjjus.
The Tri-City Labor congress at its
regular meeting yesterday virtually
indorsed the tenets of socialism. A
sentiment that has been developing
lately among the delegates found ex
pression in the following resolution
reported by a committee appointed
at the last meeting for the purpose
of drafting it in order that it might
be submitted to the national conven
tion of the American Federation of
Labor, which nU-ets this week at
"To the O cers and Delegates of
the National American Federation of
Labor, Oreeting: 'x .ie Tri-City Labor
congress, of l:wcnport, Iowa, Bock
Island, 111., anil Moline. 111., and vi
cinity, in regular monthly meeting
assembled adopts as the sense of this
organization the following resolution
and urges vour honorable body to a
favorable consideration of the same:
"Whereas, Industry has now reach'
ed that point in the progress of evo
lilt ion where one class, namely, the
capitalist class, by me'ans of cunning
and monopoly, own the expensive m:
chinery, and all the other equipments
of production and distribution, and is
thereby able and does reduce the real
producers of wealth, namely, the
laboring men. and deprives them of
the necessities and the comforts of
life by basing their wages upon the
cost of the cheapest expense of liv
ing, which is really a system of wage
"And, Whereas, By a Comprehensive
study of our conditions, tracing
industrial evolution step by step
from its inception to its present stage
of development, ami from the past
and present esaying to discern the
future, we are unable to see any real
cure save one from the present in
dustrial evils that affect us, namely
the public ownership and ojcration of
the means of production anil distri
bution, which we can obtain only by
independent political action on the
part of all organized labor." Signed
by M. T. Kennedy, E. C. Berry and J.
B. Welsenbach, committee.
Independent l'Hrty Turned Uonn,
This action was taken in lien of the
cooperation of the congress in the
movement to be inaugurated at a
meeting in St. Louis in the near fu
ture for the purpose of forming a
new political party devoted to the in
terests of united labor. The legisla
tive committee, which has the latter
matter under consideration, recom
mended that it be dropped, and the
report was adopted.
Another institution of a political
nature that was brought into exis
tence by the congress was a bulletin
to which a portion of the blackboard
will in future be devoted, and upon
which the names of men whom the
delegates plcdege themselves not to
support for public oflice are to be
Linemen's Strike Considered.
The strike of the linemen of the
I'nion Electric Telephone X: Tide
graph company was the subject of a
long discussion and the strikers were
given the support and sympathy of
the congress. The committee on
strikes was instructed to use its ef
forts to bring about a settlement. The
action of the Kock Island city council
in declaring the franchise of the Cen
tral Union Telephone company at an
cmi was commended.
An error in the minutes that made
it appear that Summers Sr LaYelle
had been placed on the unfair list waS
corrected. I)rl E. M. Sala, of this city,
was deelaircd unfair for awarding the
contract for the erection of his flat
building to John Yolk & Co.
