Geneva, Ills., May 18. The Charles

One Man Still Missing.
There is one man still missing. All of
the deceased were married and some had
large families, with one exception. The
cause of the explosion seems to bs a mystery;
as yet no one has presumed to explain its
real cause. The wrecked building is one
owned by Charles Pope and wa built in
1880. It was a brick structure six stories
high and about 800 feet in length by 100
feet in width.
Shock Felt for Three Miles.
The explosion demolished the entire
building from the top story to the second
floor. As to the loss of the company it
cannot be estimated. The value of the
building, however, is placed at $500,000.
The shock was a terrific one and was felt
throughout a radius of three miles. That
more lives were not lost borders on the mi
raculous. The scene presented the usual
one of devastation, and the sufferiug of the
scalded ones was indeed pitiful. People in
the vicinity immediately ran to the rescue
and the work of assistance was soon begun.
Fire Itreaks Ont in the Kiiinx.
No sooner had the crash occurred than
fire broke out in the ruins, and lines of men
were formed and buckets of water passed
and thrown upon the blazing ruins. After
hard work the lire was extinguished and
the work of rescue commenced. In the
outer edge of the wreck were found two of
the workmen. They were buried beneath
a mass of bricks, but were partially pro
tected by some of the woodwork of the
flooring, which had fallen above them.
They were unconscious, but alive.
Four Itodies Kocoverrd.
Deeper in the ruins another body was
found, crushed Almost beyond recognition
and charred by the flames. Near by two
other bodies were found. Both men had
been killed by the weight of the brick and
machinery which had fallen upon them.
A short distance from the spot where these
bodies were found was a huge heap of
brick, broken timbers, and twisted iron
rods. Groans were heard from this and
the work of the relief committee was di
rected toward removing the debris. After
working for some time the men came upon
the body of a man.
Just Too l.ate to Save Him.
Life was barely extinct, and it was
thought that the cries that were heard
were his last despairing appeal for aid.
Digging still deeper in the ruins the body
of another workman was recovered. Death
had come to him instantly.

And the Two Men Tliey Tried to I'.esroe
Cleveland, May IS. Captain Stanley
Flannagan and Michael Lb Blonde, of this
city, were going down the river in a row
boat which t hey used for peddling milk
along the docks. When near the mouth
of the raging stream one of LeBloude's
oars broke and the two men were left at
mercy of the waters. They were quickly
carried out into the lake by the rushing
stream, aud as it was evident that their
frail craft could not live in the angry sea
that was coming in from the north prep
arations were quickly begun for their res
cue by the life-saving crew.
"Nine men manned the life-boat and
pulled away toward the east pier of the
breakwater, toward which point the boat
containing Flannigan and Le Blonde had
drifted. When the life savers were well
out of the mouth of the river an oar broke
and in an instant the cork-like vessel
swung about to toss upon the angry waves.
The men in the lifeboat were totally help
less, and before assistance of any kind
could be rendered their boat was over
turned and the men were thrown into the
water. Five of them succeeded iu catch
ing hold of the overturned lifeboat, where
they hung on until they were rescued iu
a terribly exhausted condition.
Four of their fellow life-savers were
tossed about .so mercilessly by the wild
waves that they were unable to swim back
to the life boat, and after vainly battling
for a few moments with the elements
they were overcome and the b ittle of life
had to le given up. The names of the
men who lost their lives are: Chester
Simons, John Johusou, Nicholas Servas,
and Albert Currier.
Captain Distell and four others of the
crew were brought ashore by a tugboat.

near the east end of the breakwater. Flan

rescue, were also drowued. Their bod
ies have not yet lieen recovered.
