TWELVE MEN
__ INJURED
BV GASOLINE EXPLOSION THIS
MORNING NEAR THE WEST
PHILADELPHIA STATION
ON THE PENNSYLVANIA
RAILROAD.
PITTSBURG. Pa., Mar 5.?'Twelve
firemen were Injured this morning
by the explosion of gasoline started
underground by the Pennsylvania
railroad near its West Philadelphia
Station. During the fire Railroad Detectives
Connor and Smith endeavored
to eject two Italians who were trespassing
on the company's property.
One of the men shot Connor in the
abdomen. His condition is not serious.
The fire was peculiar in several '
respects. It broke out shortly before '
midnight in the Gasoline Vault, which
held probably thirty gallons of the
dangerous fluid. This fire was supposed
to have been extinguished with
little damage, but about an hour later
a fireman, to make sure it was over,
went over to the door of the vault and
lighted a lantern. A terrific explosion
followed, and the firemen and his
companions, who were close at hand,
seemed to be enveloped in a sheet of
waving flame. The blaze died down
as quickly as it had hurst out, but The
men were blinded, and thoir clothing
set on fire. While the excitement v*as
at its height, two Italians endeavored
to enter the railroad freight yard.
They were* halted, but insisted upon
entering, and were arrested.
One of them started 10 struggle for
freedom with Connor, but finding that j
he was 110 match for his captor, lie j
pulled a revolver from his pocket and j
snot uie aeiecuvu in me auuuwv.i.
Connor was hurried to the Presbyterian
Hospital, whore the bullet,
which entered his abdomen, was ex- *
traded. His wound is not considered '
seriQiis. j
