Sept. 23.—Dur ing gunnery drill yesterday one of the big turret guns on the French armored cruiser La Touche Trevllle exploded with terrific violence, com pletely wrecking the after turret and killing outright the entire gun crew of thirteen men. A number of other men were seriously injured, some of them probably fatally. The accident was similar to that aboard the schoolship Couronne off Les Alius de Huyer«s, August 12, last, when the bursting of the breech of one of the guns killed six men and injured eighteen. The spectacle was horrible, the dead and injured, together with scattered arms and legs littering the decks. A call to quarters was sounded and speedily, us possible the wounded were cared for. Happening so soon after the ac-' cldent on the Couronne, the explos-1 ion yesterday caused a sensation In naval circles, and doubtless will lead ι to a most rigid investigation.
