COUNTRYSIDE TERRORIZED
Inhabitants Red to Places of Safety
Fearing that Geatcr Explosions
Would Follow.
nolllaaysburg, Fa., May 1. The
plant of the Cresson Powder, works,
owned by Pittsburg capitalists and lo
cated on Tiney creek, ten miles south
of this town, was wrecked by an ex
plosion during the day. Eight work

Pittsburg is fatally injured.
The powder factory is located in a
remote portion of the county and au
thentic details are unobtainable at
present. Near the factory are the lime
stone quarries of the American Wire
and Nail company, where 500 men are
employed. These quarries have been
deserted by the fleeing men, and all
who live in the neighborhood are hur
rying to places of safety.
In the magazines and storehouses of
the factory are 1,400 blocks of explo
sives, and it Is feared greater explo
sions may occur. The Piuey creek
branch of the Pennsylvania .railroad
runs past the factory, and because of
the danger the railroad company has
refused to allow trains to pass over
this branch.
. 'Fourteen men and sixteen women
were employed In the factory which
was destroyed. Most of them were
brought from Pittsburg. They are re
garded ns experts in the manufacture
of powder. The women managed to
escape from the building before the
explosion came that hurled their fellow
workmen into eternity. All were cut
and badly burned.
The force of the explosion was so
great that it wrecked all buildings in
the vicinity and broke window panes
In towns tive miles away. A rescuing
party lias gone from Williamsburg to
the scene of death and destruction.

Concord Granite Cutters
Did Not Strike.
ACCEPTED PROPOSITION
Mainly on Lines of Westerly Settle
ment $3 for Three-fourths of
Men and Eight Hour Day.
Concord, May 1. "The granite cutters
will not strike May 1." This was the
pleasant information giveh last evening by
a member of the executive committee of
the union. The granite cutters held a
largely attended meeting last evening and
appointed a committee to confer with a
committee representing the manufacturers.
It was agreed to accept the proposition
of the manufacturers, which is practically
on the lines of the recent Westerly, R. I.,
settlement. The terms allow that 75 per
cent of the men employed must receive $3
per day and that 23 per cent of the less
skilled help receive $2.80 per day. Eight
hours constitute a day's labor.
There remains one matter to be settled,
and that is in relation to the tool sharpen
ers. They desire an increase in wages
from $2.80 to $;. it is expected that this
will be fully discussed at a coming meet
ing of the Sharpeners' union. .

gating reports of movements of live stock
across the state line between .New Hamp
shire and Vermont in this vicinity. The
investigation is to extend to the towns of
Hanover, X. 11., and Norwich, Vt.
It has been alleged that in these three
localities live stuck has been secretly
driven from one state to the other In vio
lation of law. It is believed here that the

PLAINTIFF
GETS VERDICT
McKinstry vs. Collins
Suit Decided,
McKINSTRY GETS $700.00
Jury Reported at Five O'clock Last
Evening After Being Out
Thirty-one Hours.
Montpelier, May 1. After being out 31
hours the jury in the MeKinstry vs. Col
lins case reported a verdict last evening
shortly before five o'clock. The jury
awards in favor of the plaintiff to recover
damages of $700.
The case was given to the jury at ten
o'clock Wednesday forenoon, and since that
time they have been In the custody of the
eheritf. Late Wednesday afternoon they
were taken up and allowed to ask the
court a question, which was, if the words
in the printed forms given them, "In
manner and form as the plaintiff has al
leged," necessarily included "all" that the
plaintiff had alleged. The court told them
that it did not.
The jury remained together all night
Wednesday night, and today one of the
jurymen said that the time they wer, to
gether seemed like five weeks Instead of
81 hours.
This was the third trial of the ease, in
which McKinstry sought to get damages
for the death of his wife which, it was
alleged, was caused through the rough
usage received from the defendaut. The
suit was for $.".0oo. It was one of the
most remarkable that has been on the
Washington county court docket for some
time.
Yesterday afternoon the contested Barre
divorce esse of Murdoek Mclver vs. Mary
Ann Mel ver went on trial. The plaintiff
alleges Intolerable severity.
There was a slight sensation during the
examination of one dl the witnesses iu the
Mclver case. A man who had been sworn
in as a witness, and was awaiting his
turn to testify, became too much in evi
dence in the jury box where he was sit-
Hn ll orviorol fo o f tai n n vert) oaf.
Kliwl with the world in i'pni'rul and lir.it
hummed a tune to himself until the. sheriff
rapped on his desk. An Instant later
Mrs. Murray gave an exnressiou of opin
ion as to the reputation ot iho j etitionee
which ideased the gentleman and he an-
piauded. But not, for long, for Judge
MaiTord pointed to him with his finger
and said, "Mr. SSheriiT, take that man into
your custody." Uh was taken from the
court room bv Mr. Evans.
HIT HIM OVER TEE EiE.
but John 11. ex'ntrr Clnne to Man Until
An OHlcer Arrived,
Montpelier, April HO. It appears that
John H. Center had something to do with
the arrest of Frank Coburn at the Central
Vermont depot last night. - Mr. Seuter
found him asleep on a seat in the waiting
room and awoke him, presumably with
me intention oi aausing him to go home.
Coburn, however, jumped up and gave Mr.
Senter a crack over one eye that nearly
knocked htm down. Mr. Senter spoke
gently as he sometimes docs, clinched Co-
burn and downed hun on the spot.. He
kept him In the station until the night
operator telephoned to the police station
and Officer Durkee appeared on the scene.
Coburn probably concluded he hit the
wrong man that time.

to the police station and notified Chief
Prow n that while coming to this city on

of going to press no body had been fonnd.
The man could not state positively that
what he saw was a woman's body but he
thought that it was. , The man came here
from Hardwick.
Chief McMahon of the Montpelier po
lice, immediately started for the Pioneer
and searched until it became so dark that
it was impossible to see objects in the wa
ter. Nothing was found of the body and
it Is thought some mistake was make
about the matter.

ARMY MARKSMANSHIP.
Secretary Boot's I'Inn to Excite
General Interest.
Secretary Boot is resolved that the
United States shall have tho best "men
behind the guns" that time and trouble
will buy, says a Washington special
dispatch to the New York Post lie
has had a special board of officers work
out a plan for this end which he hopes
will succeed. As an immediate step to
excite interest lie wishes to have a
team of expert American rltlemen as
pctnblcd through competitive contests
and scut abroad to try at r.islcy in
England for the Palma trophy, now
held by Canada,
The scheme evolved by. the army
board contemplates Introducing rifle
practice into the colleges and leading
Ugh schools of the country. Later It la
hoped to have municipal shooting gal
leries sprinkled all over the country
where men in all walks of life can
learn to use the modern military fire
arm. The next congress, it is said, will
be asked to provide medals and tro
phies for competitive marksmanship
outside of the organized militia.
SEWER MAIN
IN BAD WAY
Not a Whole Length of
Pipe on Main Street
FOR SOME DISTANCE
If New Street is Constructed New
Sewer Main May be Necessary
Pipe Broken for Ten Years.
At the hearing on the necessity and the
nature ot a permanent roadway for Main
street at the city council chamber yester
day afternoon, a rather startling fact was
stated by City Engineer Allen when he
said that he had been making an examin
ation of the Main street sewer from the
National Bank building to Granite street,
aud that from Miles' block to Granite
street there Isn't a length of sewer pipe
that is whole.
Mr. Allen further stated that many of
the lengths of pipe are broken in three
places, two underneath and one on top.
From the bank building to the Miles
block the pipe Is apparently whole. Be
yond Granite street Mr. Allen has not had
opportunity to examine. Mr. Allen said
the breaks iad probably existed for the
past ten years. He attributed the cause
of the breaks to poor tamping when the
pipe was laid.
If the cracks have been there 10 years
as seems probable it will be extremnly
dangerous to dig up Main street for the
purposes of constructing a new roadway
without first laying a new sewer main, as
the present pipes would be very liable to
cave in.
The hearing brought out no opposition
to the construction of a new street ev
ervone agreed that it was needed. The
objections that were made were to meth
ods proposed by assessing half the cost on
the abuttors.
W. A. Boyoe, L. .1. Bolster, ,1. P. Lam-
son for .Sortwell & Morse and others, F.
Williams for the Nichols estate, O. C.
Sheplee, Dr. B. W. Bralcy as administra
tor for the A. P. Braley estate and Morse
estate, W. It. Gladding, Mrs. A, T.
Smith, Mrs. L. J." Bolster, Mrs. O. C.
Sheplee and J. B. Sanguinettt, all object
ed to being assessed -10 percent of the eott
of construction.
W. G. Reynolds objected to the assess
ment if it was to be made on the f rout foot
basis. The property of Hevnolds & Son
has a considerable frontage, but little
depth.
The question ot the continuance or tne
scales iu front of Reynolds rtwe was dis
cussed. L. J. Bolster. ,one of the near-by
property owners, said he had uo objection
to oner to their remaining.
At 3.-1.J the hearing adjourned
