A tcrrillo explosion occurrod about St. 15
o'clock this morning at a point midway bo

drill men, women and children ou board.
Ab it was a miracle only provoutcd loss of

Nearly eety window wob shattered iu tho

force ol tho concussion, nnd tbo ougiueer
louud little dillleiilty in halting his liiacliiuo.
'I ho set ne, as ho looked behind from his
culi window, was uu exciting one.
Kiery oiu of the bif, cars woro tossing nnd
tumbling from bide to bide, lino a large ship
in a furious sturm.
It seemud as if they would never stop
'1 ho ground trembled. Tall trees bhUered
as If beaten by a gale of wind.
The air was thick with Hying stones that
darted hither and thither, with the speed and
manner of a llock of frightened birds.
Somo of tlu bo stones lould not have bcuii
lifted by lohR than six or soieu men, vet they
weiu tbiowu t'i n great dibuiuce by tho force
ot tlio cplo ion.
Many of the stones pattered down on tho
cars like a ncavy showor of hail, but fortu
nately nouo that fell this way wero heavy
enough to break through tho car roofs.
Tho wildest excitement prevailed in the
curs. Men prayed aud swore. Women
tainted and children cried.
Olio loud voice exclaimed :
' 'J ho day of judgment has come. I'rny,
sinners, pray. "
This added to tho excitement, and for a few
soiouds it hicined as If tho stronger would
trample tbo weakor lu their mad oflorts toget
out b .mow bore anywhere.
They did not know aud did not cara wheio
they wanted to go. They rubbed uround
madly, blindly.
Ouo man kept jumping over the seals, back
and forth until his beues returned.
To add to tho terror of tho bcoiio, those
wtio i re injured were cut mostly about the
face, and they proaeuted u terrible spectacle
as they i ui about with tho blood besmearing
their cheeks aud dripping ou their clothing.
Only for the coolnesj of a fow passengers
pn tho tram tlio olhors would have surely in
flicted u'rioiiH injury ou ouo another in their
toiror, trying to get out of tbo train.
Police Justice A. P. Dnlciuiibro, of Pelham
ville, was ouo of tbo les. el-hpadril ones who
by voice aud oxamnlo encouraged tho fright
ened ouos to bo culm.
Mr. S. J. Smith, of Mount Vernon, was
nnothor, aud l'nrk CoimiiiShiiinar Stovousou
Towlu also woiked heroically to got tho
w'iueii and children nut of tho cars safely.
Only one passenger, as lar ns known at this
writing, was seriously injured. His name is
Taylor. Ho lives at New Itochello.
A fragment of glass was driven into tbo
ri.'ht temple. Uu pulled it out, whereupon
tbo blood button to gush forth.
Fortunately them was u physician on Iho
train. l)r Wayward, of Polbarn, dressed the
cut and Bloiipod tho How of blood, othorwUo
the injured man would have bled to death.

of tbo men wero jumping off tbo cars or
throwing thtmsehesout of tho train through

When it was stopped overy ouo struggled
out us best thev could, pale, frighteued, and
many of them covored with blood.
T bey described their Feusation as if suffer
ing from u soero fit ot Fcuhickness, aud it
had much the same effect ou more than a few
of them. Smiio of tho more venturesome
ones then began to look for tho cause of tho
extilosion, but there was npuo apparent.
Iu that vicinity thoy aro bbtsting rock in
or ler to lay a double track, aud some peoplo
ascribo tbo rxnlosion to carelessness on the
part of tliosu doing the blasting.
Another thei ry entertained by many is tba

Justice Dclc.imbre thinks so for one. He
was u p.iBsenuor on tho train.
When mtiruewed by an Eveoti WonLD
reportor. ho gao tho followiuc graphic do
beript'on of tho occurrence. Ho said
' The train was bounding along at tho rate
of nerrly fifty miles an hour. We left Mount

Other passcugors related incidents of a

baby out of the train by Hie skirls.
Purk t'tiiniuissioner Stevens.iii Towlu, who
was n passt njer on tho train, gave hhI'sn.
imi Worn ii roporter tho following account
of the explosion-
" A terrillc t'onciission jarred tho train.
People foil from their seats from tho shock.
Many tainted, as many men it seemed, ns
woman. Others were affected just as lu sea
sickness. Women shrieked and Ihe greatest
confusion and excitement reigned for u timo.
" All tho windows, ventilators uud tbo

coachoB and a bnggngo cor.
" As far as I Iiiimi Icariif il. no doath hasyot
resulted, though tho shock to tho nervous
system of many of tho women was something
very friglitlul.
" All thai saved Iho train from being blown
from tbo track was the rapid rate at which

lino piocos of plasn woro blown through from
