Magazine Containing 14.000 Founds
; Vp Three Men Killed.
CATLETTSBIT.G, Ky., Aug. 15. Yester
day morning a terrible explosion of 14.000
pounds of powder occurred in the Centyai
Harper's ity Pwder factory, in which three men
are known to have been killed and several
I badly injured. The whistle had not
sounded which calls the men to work,
when suddenly a mighty shock was felt by
those in the vicinity of the mill. A cloud
of smoke was seen to rise from the spot
where the magazine stood which dark
ened the sun so that none could see what
was going on, and amid the gloom, the
nose of falling timber and broken iron
could be heard in all directions.
One Man's Remains Picked Up.
As soon as tbe deadly shower of debris
had ceased the survivors started to hunt
for the wounded. Portions of the remains
of a man named Bates were found some
distance from the wreck. He was known
to have been in the building at the time
of the accident. Timothy Cooney is miss
ing and is supposed to be killed. A man's
leg was found in the afternoon which leads
to the belief that a third man is killed.
George Wells, of Guyandotte, was so
badly injured that he died at 11 o'clock.
Searching for Other Victims.
Searching patties are busy in the neigh
borhood, and it is feared that others may
yet be found who were not known to
have been on tbe ground. The magazine
was carried away entirely, with the ex
ception of some heavy pieces of machin
ery. Another large building was badly
shattered, aud tt is feared that Are may
yet reach'the powder stored there. Tbe
loss to the company will be about $25,000.
The damages will be repaired at once.
