Children otSt. Stephen's Danish
Lutheran Church Spent Yester
day at Soynton Beach.
The children of the Sunday school
of St. Stephen's Danish Lutheran
church held their picnic yesterdav at
Boynton Beach and, from all reports,
had one of the best times of their
lives. They went on the "Quaker
City," leaving this city shortly after
9 o'clock and arriving home about six.
An unusually large crowd accom
panied the children, composed of
parents and friends, and all were more
than satisfied with the day's outing.
All the diversions and stands at the
beach received liberal patronage and
nothing was neglected which might
contribute in any way to the chil
dren's enjoyment.

Estimated that there are About

The Calvanistic Hungarians, of this
vicinity, will hold a meeting in the
First Presbyterian church of this city
on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. In
Hungary the people of this sect are
known as tne Reformed Oalvinists and
are very much tho same sr the Pres
A conservative estimate places the
number of these people in this vicinity,
including New Brunswick, at 1,000
and, although this meeting has not
been arranged with that end in view,
something may result from it in re
gard to the establishment^ a congre
gation in this city.
The meeting will be in charge of
Rev. Paul Hambroszky, who has
charge of the Calvanistic Hungarian
church at the county seat. If a new
church should bo established, he
would have charge of that as well as
the one at New Brunwsick, as well as
a mission at Woodbridge, which may
shortly be started.

An explosion at the Sun and Moon
mine wrecked the transformer house,
set fire to the oil in the transformers
and threatened the destruction of the
main shaft.
The watchman at the mine, aroused
by the explosion, rushed out in time to
tee two men running away from' the
transformer building. lie tired at them
several times, and later a wounded
man was found lying near by.
The Sun and Moon was the first
mine affected by the strike which was
declared last February. After four
months of idleness the mine resumed
operations ih June with nonunion
Manager Sims declares that no ex
plosive of any kind was kept in or
near the transformer building, which,
apparently, was wrecked by a heavy
charge of dynamite.
Twenty-two memi>er8 of the miners'
union, including President Howard
Tresize and the other ' officials, have
been arrested charged with conspiracy
to blow up the mine. They protest
ignorance of a conspiracy and declare
that they, at all times advised the men

Disaster at Lowell Causes
Twenty Deaths.
Seventy Piece* of Property Were
Destroyed by Coneuasioii? Win
dow* Six Mile* \wny
LOWELL, Mass.. July 30.? Two
small gunpowder magazines situated
in the very midst o f tlie humble resi
dences of fifty mill operatives, mostly
of French extraction, exploded witli a
frightful concussion. The resultant
wave of death cut off the lives of more
than a score of human beings and in
jured nearly fifty others. Half u dozen
men who were loading kegs of powder
from one of the magazines were blown
to pieces, four boys 200 yards away
were killed by the force of the explo
sion and fourteen frame houses with
in a radius of 400 yards went down as
if they had been built of cards. Seven
of these houses immediately caught
fire, probably from the kitchen stoves,
and were completely consumed. /Vt
least three persons were caught in the
ruins and burned to death, while seven
or eight others who were rescued died
subsequently of their injuries.
It is estimated that seventy separate
pieces of property, including those al
ready mentioned, were destroyed, while
the force of the explosion wrecked
windows for five or six miles around,
and its thunder could be heard dis
tinctly more than fifty miles away..
The magazines were the property of
the United States Cartridge company
of this city, but fortunately were situ
ated more than a mile away from the
factory itself. They were built of
brick, about ten feet high, with a
rounded roof of corrugated iron.
One of the magazines was just with
in the roadside fence, while the other
was about a hundred feet behind it,
near the banks of the river. Both mag
azines ordinarily contained two or
three tons of gunpowder in tin kegs,
each keg being about eighteen inches
high and a foot in diameter. The com
pany has for some time been desirous
of strengthening the floor of the maga
zine nearest the street, and eight men,
three of them employees of the compa
ny, three expressmen and two carpen
ters, were sent there with three large
express teams to take out the powder
and mend fhe floor. Two of the teams
had been loaded and the other was al
most full when at six minutes past 9
o'clock the explosion occurred.
It was a long time before the actual
cause of the explosion could be ascer
tained. It was thought at first that
every one within a radius of fifty feet
of the magazines had been killed, but
later it was found that Mr. Clarendon
Goodwin, the foreman of the men who
were loading the powder on the teams,
had survived, together with one of his
assistants, Amadee Boulanger, and the
latter was later seen in the hospital.
He said that the men went down to
the magazine nearest the street to fix
the floor, and after the teams had been
loaded with the powder which was in
the magazine it was discovered that a
can of nitroglycerin which was stored
in the magazine was leaking. Mr. Good
win picked up what lie thought was a
jug of water and began pouring it on
the nitroglycerin with the idea of di
luting and washing it up. As soon as
the fluid from the jug struck the floor
he found that it was nitric acid. The
floor ut once began to smoke, and when
the men saw it they rushed from the
building, but had not gone ten feet
when the explosion occurred. This mag
azine was therefore the first to go up,
followed immediately by the gunpow
der in the three teams and several sec
onds later by the second magazine.
To those who heard the crash it seem
ed as if there were two distinct explo
sions, with a continuous roar between
them. There are, however, five holes in
the ground, which seems to clearly in
dicate five explosions.
The entire catastrophe, however, oc
cupied the spfeCe of scarcely five sec
onds, but in that time the surrounding
property was swept as if a small vol
cano had broken forth in its midst. Ev
ery house within 200 yards collapsed.
Trees were blown down, the grass with
in a hundred yards mowed as if by a
lawn mower, while bricks from the two
magazines were hurled far across the
river and all over the neighborhood.
Several of the injured were terribly
maimed and burned. One man was
Buffering such intense agony that upon
his arrival at the hospital he begged
the surgeons to shoot him and end his
A large number, however, who were
treated at the hospital and by outside
physicians sustnined only cut hands
and faces, caused by glass.

Now In Rome For the Conclave,
Which Will Hold Its First
Meeting; Tomorrow.
ROME, July 30. ? Rome was again
the scene of one of those dramatic con
trasts so characteristic of the Eternal
City. While at the Vatican, in the Sis
tine chapel, a solemn requiem mass
was being intoned for the repose of the
soul of Leo XIII., the spiritual mon
irch who claimed Rome as his capital,
another requiem mass was being cele
bra ted in the Pantheon for the repose
of the soul of King Humbert, temporal
monarch, the capital of 'whose kingdom
was Rome.
The second requiem mass in the Sis
tine chapel was termed the foreign
mass. It was celebrated by Cardinal
Kopp, bishop of Breslau, a German.
With the arrival here of Cardinal
Prisco, archbishop of Naples, the num
ber of cardinals who will participate in
the conclave is complete and totals six
It is now an open secret that the sup
porters of Cardinals ltampolla and Got
ti will vote for their respective candi
dates on the first ballot, after which the
one who leads in the vote will receive
the united support of both parties.
During the meeting of the congrega
tion the forms to be used in voting at
the conclave were distributed among
the cardinals in order that each might
be able to learn how to employ his
ballot. After the meeting Cardinal
Oreglia requested the cardinals to visit
their cells and present any complaint
which they might have.
Superstitious people here find an
omen in the fact that Cardinal Ram
polla drew apartment No. 58, which in
the book of the lottery stands for pope,
and consequently they come to the con
clusion that fate has marked him to be
the next pope. Cardinal Agliardi has
relinquished his cell, near the Sistine
chapel, to Cardinal Cretoni on account
of the latter's illness. Over the door
of each of the cells has been placed
the coat of arms of the cardinal who
is to occupy it.
Should all the sixty-two cardinals
now in Rome enter the conclave it will
be the most numerously attended in
history. The conclave which elected
teo was attended by\sixty-one cardi
nals. In the past popes have been
elected by as low as nine.
Ate Luncheon Under the Sea.
NEWPORT, R. I., July 30.? The Lake
submarine torpedo boat Protector is
the center of naval interest here. While
a party of officers were being shown
through the craft the diving compart

door opened. One of the crew passed
out and came to the surface. Several
officers were taken aboard and enjoyed
a submerged run. The submergence
lasted an hour and three-quarters, and
an hour and fifteen minutes was spent
resting on the bottom while luncheon,
cooked while submerged, was served.
