At least 20 men were killed yesterday by a premature bla-t nf dynamite in a none ijnsrry opprAird by th" Cailslan li >ad Improvement Company, near ???loth P- thl('ifni, 1! miles southwest of Albany, N. V. 1? k th"- .snd pounds of dynamite ex? ploded, and the bodies of th** victims ?vere burled hundreds of feet by the concussion and so badly mutilated as to lie almost beyond recognition. As darkness wss failing n wagon drew up 'i tba ergitiplinu-e loaded with bodies tiu.t bud been picked np bm k on tho parry hill. A crowd ot giie-f-trickeu rrlatives gatbeied around, eager to identify tbe dead, only to taro away at tbe sickening sight. Lallans with shovels found here and there portions of bodies and brought their gruesome loads in boxes to lbe [?ngirif bou-e, which served as a tempor tty morgue. The Callalau Road Improvement Dompany furnished crushed stone for road building. The preparations for yesterday's blast lind been going on for mx weeks. Thirteen taolee, 7f> feet deep, bad been drilled at points about 20 feet back of the face of the big quarry, and the explosion of tbe dynamite witb which they were to be loaded was ex? pected to displace -10,-jO't tons of rock. Over S,(Kio pounds of dynamite were to have bepu used. The workmen had placed 500.-MO.Dd charges in six of the notes and were working on tbe seventh wheo a percussion cap was prematurely discharged. A terrific explosion fol? lowed, which hurled tons of rock into the air and scattered tbe bodies of tbe victims in all directions. The officers were standing nearby at the time direct? ing the work. Houses iu Ihe vicinity were shaken and windows shattered by the concus? sion and consternation reigned iu tbe little village half a mlle away. AmiiDg ihe victims were twelve Ital? ian*. In addition to the trunks and larger psrts of the bodies recovered, a Utile throe foot wide and ten long wan tilled heaping with humed and br iken arms aud I*-****, par!*- of hem! and trunks ot the victim* ol tho accident. Nitp ol their bodies Dot yet recovered are oilier buried ia tko rocks or have been blown into such small pieces that it will be impossible to associate them as bodie*. 8TRI Kp A FIZZLE, The fir-t nay of the pistil strike yes erdsy, in Parla, passed pr artfully.
