Vtt hundred men on the floor of the
New York Stock Exchange, as many
mora on tho Curb market, 200 feet
fiwuy, and 300 on tho Consolidated mar
ket, n block nwny, ran helter skelter for
fhcltor amid showers of flying glass,
nfter recovering from tho momentary
stunning of tho terrific explosion.
William II, Htmlck, president ot the
New York Stock Exchange, wai stand
ing In tho "money crowd" chatting with
friends at the time of tho explosion.
Un than a minute after It occurred He
had Jumped to tho rostrum and tapped
tho boll that brines a compulsory stop
to trading, Trading- stopped, too, on tho
Curb, an operators nnd their clerks
leaped for sheltered doorways.
With the oxceptton of a few minor
ruts by fljlng glass, none of which were
serious enough to requIrO moro than
"ujwfluous dressing by the first Aid
"orpti, no one on the Btock Hxchanco or
'ho Curb market was Injured.
Not only on tho markets, which slmul
ancousl) stopped trading In all of the
principal markets of tho United States
which look to Stock Exchange prices for
their cue. but In banks and brokerage
offices, business was brought to u sud
Jon halt by the explosion which ripped
, path of death through the financial
'.strict. Thousands of clcrkrt, released
from their usual duties, flocked as near
to tho scene of tho accident ns tho police
lines would admit, whllo others, most of
them out of sliucr curiosity, crowded
about the doors of the llrond street hos
pital, where most of the Injured wero
taken.
Jinny Hftyeil by Silk Ctirtnlna,
Engineers started rui examination of
the building, now undergoing repairs,
and reported that tho shock of the ex
plosion hall not damaged tho Stock Ex
change building, with tho exception of
shattering practically all tho heavy
glass In (ho windows. One of tho ua
flons why few of tho members nnd cm
ployocs who happened to bo on tho floor
at tho time wero Injured wai becauso
of heavy silk curtains which line the
windows on the Broad street side.
Theso served as a barrlor to break tho
flight ot the crashing glass, and most
of It tumbled harmlessly to the pave
ment outside.
In view of the report from engineers
that the building Is undamaged the
board of governors, meeting In mid
afternoon, decided that the Exchange
will reopen for business at the usual
hour this morning. Tho Curb nnd other
markets Interrupted by the explosion
also will rosume business. t
In connection with the report that dy
namite was being used In wrecking the
old Exchange bulldlftg and that the ex
plosion might have been caused by a
load of high explosives en routo to tho
Job Robert J.-Eldlltz, treasurer of Marc
Eldlltz Son, Inc., the builders, notified
the officials of the Exchange that ho
had been Informed positively by the
Foundation and Underpinning Company,
who have the foundation work under
way, that no explosive was on the way
to tho Stock Exchange Job and that
there was none on the way to tho Ex
chango building at any time during the
day. Arthur Longendyke, secretary of
tho building committee, issued a state
ment to this effect
It wad remarked about the Wall Street
district that tho proclivity of Wall
Birretcrs to take a late lunch probably
.paved many liven, In the lost few years
Wall street clerks have shifted their
lunch hour, unconsciously, from tho H t30
and 13i30 period to 13)30 and 1 (30.
Tlicio wore many persons about tho cor
ner of llroad and Wall streets at 13
o'clock, but probably not so many by
)ml( as would havn been In tho vicinity
thirty minutes later, when the, 1280
contingent rolled out Into tho ntreets In
quest of lls.mldday luncheon,
Tho Metropolitan Life Insurance Com
pany recently Insured all employees ot
tho Htock Exchange on tho group plan.
When officials of the Insumnco company
heard ot IJie explosion they despatched
to the exchange a unit of twenty nurses,
who wero later sent on to tho llrond
Street Hospital to aid In caring for the
wounded,
Employees of the Stock Exchange were
given strong commendations by tho
board of governors for tho manner In
which each man and woman stuck to bin
post nt tlio tlmo ot tho explosion and
directly afterward. Every one of them
"stayed put" nnd thcro was no such
panic fin occurred In tho street os the
crowd surged back and forth,
Herman Htcarn ot 35 Wall street,
manufacturer of cigars, was sitting at
his desk In a window on tho Wall street
s'do when the explosion: occurred. An
ho wlndow.beforn him shattered a heavy
Iron mlsslo same hurtling through. It
struck ,tho, edgo of, a cabinet at which
.dr. Htearn was working anil crashed
tl rough tho colling, missing his head by
tho fraction of nn Inch,
Charles 1 Dougherty. In choreo of
messengers for tho New York Btock Ex.

the tlmo of tho explosion. Ho was op
posite Si Wall on tho right hand side
f tho street. "I saw the explpslon, n
column of smoke shoot up Into the air
nnd then raw pcoplo dropping all around

Ciiicaoo, Sept. 18. Upon being Jn
formed of tho explosion outsldo the of
fices of J. I Morgan & Co., In New
York to-day. Chief of Police Qarrlty Im
mediately ordered a police guard thrown
around tho Htock Exchange. Hoard of
Trado and several other buildings In I
Fnlle street, tho Wall Street of Chicago,
lie was determined thcrn would bo no
duplication of tho tragedhere.
Capt. Morgan Colllns'wna onlered to
tako chnrgo of tho details and des
pntchrd fifty plain clothes men nnd uni
formed officers to guard tho buildings.
Chief Marrlty then called In tho anar
chist squad and Instructed them to
watch for all secret meetings of tho
Iteds In Chicago.
"I am not going to tako any chances
here," tho Chief said following tho con
ferences, "The explosion may or may
not havo been caused by Ited activities,
but I am going to guard against any
such thing being perpetrated here,"
Meantime Information was recolved
here to make It appear that the ox
ploxlon might bo a part of a contem
plated reign of terrorism.
This was tho opinion of Allen O.
Meyer, chief Investigator of lied activ
ities In tho East for tho Hums Detec
tive Agency. Mr. Meyer believes In
vestigation will show that the outrage
can be laid at tho door of the Com
munist party, several leaders' of which
wero convicted here recently.
He cumo from New York to-day to
go before the Grand Jury In connection
with tho case of Lloyd Wilson, arrested
several days ago for alleged complicity
In tho bond deals of "Nicky" Arnstcin
of New York.
'Two weeks ago wo notified clients
who have engaged us to Investigate the
Red situation that within n few weeks
a reign of terror would begin," he said.
"Tho Cqmmunlst party Is behind It all.
They are planning to wreck buildings,
murder nnd commit all kinds of atroci
ties. A general strike Is planned, so that
ull tho nation's Industries' will be tied
up.
"Tho seriousness of tho situation can
'not bo emphasized too geatly, inasmuch
as life and property are at stake. The
snake Is to be turned loose to bite tho
railroad men, tho great army of miners
and steel workes, and stive to tie up tile
country's Industries."

Brooklyn were shattered and blown Into
