shout was raised in the street that the
lions were loose and the crowd which
had seeked shelter in the corridor fled
panic stricken. The lions did not es

the beasts were cut by the bricks.
On the south side of Newark avenue,
opposite the theater, the roofs of 12
three-story buildings were ripped off.
The storm struck St. Matthews' Luth

heart of the business district, was the
scene of the storm's fiercest work.
There the growths of many decades

they were made of pipe clay. A piece
of the roof of the Union League club,
opposite the park, was lifted and car

the ground.
No persons were killed or injured so

city was confined to a heavy downpour*
of rain with a violent wind. It was
heaviest in the Bronx, where the
streets were flooded. The cut through
the Harlem division, where the New
York Central runs, close to Williams
burg, was flooded from two to three
feet. There was much sand on the
railroad tracks and trains were unable
to get out. At the One Hundred and

SECOND ACCIDENT OCCURS.
Flvs More Mem at Cleveland, «hi 0
Met Death.
Cleveland, Aug. 23.-—As a result of an
explosion of gas in the new waterworks
tunnel under Lake Erie five more |j ves
were added to the already long list of ,.. u
ualties recorded since work begun on u, e
great artificial waterway.
The dpad are: Ray Treadshaw, ,J., mes

court and John Bert.
Crib No. 3, five miles from shore and
two miles beyond Crib No. 2, where marly
a dozen lives were lost a week ago. Ua ' s
the scene ôt the latest accident. The
heavy casing of the shaft was shattered by
the terrific force of the explosion, and an
immense volume of water from the hike
rushed in upon the unfortunate workmen
at the bottom. Two men who were at
work on staging at the top of the shaft
were blown high into the air, but aliallied
on the crib, and beyond being stunned
were not seriously injured.
The accident occurred in the night, hut
nothing was known of it on shore until
morning. For some unexplained reason
no boats are kept at the crib-*. Thirty
men who were on the crib when the ex
plosion took place spent tire night vainly
signaling for assistance. It was lung after
daylight before a tug reached them, h j s
supposed that the men digging struck a
vein of gas, which was ignited by a „park
made by a workman's pick.
Heavy iron girders and machinery
weighing more than a hundred tons were
forced out of the shaft by the explosion.
The crib was wrecked. Death must have
been instantaneous to the workmen in the
tunnel, for their comrades above heard no
outcry. So great was the destruction
wrought by the explosion that it will prob
ably be weeks before the damage cart Ire
repaired and the bodies of the unfortunate
workmen recovered.
James Williams, who lost his life in this
accident, was one of the men who heroic
ally entered the tunnel after the accident
of last week in Crib No. 2 itt search of
victims of that disaster. Plummet Jone»,
who at that time descended into tire shaft
with Williams, was overcome with gas and
died in the tunnel.
■Mayor Johnson visited the scene of the
accident, and immediately upon his return
ordered all construction work on the tun
nel stopped until every safeguard shall he
provided for the protection of the inert.
The mayor said that in his opinion the
city was now justified in taking tire work
out of the hands of the contractors, and,
if possible, this would be done.
Eu «(1 ne Hub Into Can Factory.
Janesville, Wis., Aug. 20. — A North
western railroad engine and boxcar
plunged through the Janesville canning
factory's plant. The building was of
Brick, just finished at a cost of $1.30,000
and is now in ruins. The engine struck
the big water tank, which fell lengthwise
on the building and crushed it. Tirirty
million tin cans Were smashed and all the
costly machinery, engine and boilers
crushed. The plant was just finished
ready to start immediately.
The engineer and fireman left the en

the building to determine where to put
the car. The train started down the
grade, jumped the track and went
through one end of the building. No one
wag injured.
