A Itrakeman Blown to Atoms.
William Frauley, a brakeman in the
employ of the Little Miami, was blown to
atoms. Five other persons, supposed to
be employes of the powder company, were
killed. The KintM Powder company aud
the Peters Cartridge works have build'

railroad. The explosion occurred on the

Played Havoc in I he' Cottage.
A number of cottages occupied by work
men in the powder factory, and Kituated
close to the track, were shattered and
their inmates injured. Twelve or fifteen
girls at work in the cartridge factory were
crippled. The railway stationsjtnd freight
house belonging to the Little Miami rail

Tremendous Force of the Bliss.
The havoc caused by the explosion was
fearful. The hillside that rose from the
railroad tracks was entirely torn up. Great
trees were shattered, and a mass of earth
half as large as a mountain was hurled
Into the bed of the Miami river, damming
that stream until it flooded the adjacent
bottoms and tore great gullies through
fields of corn, cutting a new channel that
rnlns hundreds of acres. The force of the
explosion shook the earth for miles, and
was felt at points fifty miles away. Not a
bouse in the little hamlotthat surrounded
the station escaped damage.
THE LAKE PEPIN HORROR.
Seventy Bodies Recovered and Thirty-
Six Still In the Lake.
LAKE CITY, Minn., July 16. The dreary
search for the dead in the treacherous
waters of Lake Pepin went on earnestly
but solemnly all yesterday. The bodies
of seventy victims of that fated excursion
have been recovered. None are mangled;
all are pitiful in the ghastly placidity of
death. Most of the bodies were found in
the steamer, which was towed down to
small island about two miles north of the
village. At one time fourteen girls, not
one of them over 18 years of asre. were
lying side by side on the sandy beach, their
white dresses covered with seaweed.
Some Heartrending Scenes.

less man I year old was found with its lit
tle bands clinched as babies do when they
cry. .Not one or the bodies was disfigured.
but the faces of all showed intense atronv
and suffering, and one young girl, who
was taken from the cabin, had torn big
patches of hair from her head, and her
teeth were set tightly in her lips.
A Joyfnl Discovery.
One of the incidents associated with the
transfer of the corpses occurred at Red
Wing, when one entire family went to the
Ybarf to meet the body of a son who was
supposed to be lost. hile the sheeted
bodies were being taken off the deck, a
young man in water-soaked clothing came
down the gang plank. He hail hardlv
reached the dock when the family made a
rush for him and nearly bore him to his
knees in their muscular demonstration of
affection. He proved to be the bov who
was supposed to be lost.

In Th Record Office Carlisle Takes a
Gloomy View ot the Fiaanees and Pre
dicts a Deficit.
Washington Citt, July 16. Commis
sioner Raum was the subject of a vigor
ous verbal assault in the house yesterday
daring the discussion of the bill appro
priating over teoo.000 for additional clerks
In the pension office. Enloe began the at
tack and said that before any increase of
force was granted the pension, bureau it
would be well to ascertain the truth of the
charges alleged in Cooper's resolution that
the commissioner of pensions had changed
the ruling of the department in tbe inter
est of a pension attorney in th'.s city. It
had been alleged that the pension office
was corrupt from bottom to top. He
himself believed that the office was reek
ing with corruption in every department.
"Come Out ia the Alley, Will You?"
J. D. Taylor of Ohio did not believe any
member had a right to make such in
famous charges against an executive of
ficer. If he were a man of conrage he
would make an affidavit. Enloe said that
if the gentleman wanted to find out
whether or not he was a man of courage, all
he had to do was to investigate the matter
Cooper of Indiana said he was ready to
prove before a competent committee that
the charges were true, and would prove
that the commissioner of pensions had
outrageously sold out a ruling in behalf
of a firm of pension attorneys. He was
favorable to the appropriation made by
the bill, but he believed that if the com
missioner of pensious would devote the
time for which he was paid, instead of be
coming president and manager a refrig
erator institution, there would' be no ne
cessity for such a large number of clerks.
The bureau should be administered hon
estly, and he charged before the country
tnat that was not the case.
Cannon Thinks Proof Is In Order.
cannon saia tnat ne was not aware un
til last Friday that a resolution of investi
gation had been introduced. It he (Can
non) had introduced the resolution a
hearing being in progress he would wait
until it had been completed.
cooper replied that the committee on
rules, after hearing his statement, had ad
journed to meet next Monday, but it did
not meet because of the absence of Can
non and other members.
Cannon said that he was absent Monday
for the first time in eighteen years. It
might, be that the administration of tbe
pension bureau was corrupt, but the name
of no wi ness had been mentioned to show
it, and if it was corrupt It should be
shown. Cannon had an acquaintance of
twenty years with Green B. Kanm, and if
he had fallen under temptation be was
loth to condemn him until proof was
shown. The house was the bodv to decide
if an investigation should be ordered.
