The Gold Leaf. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY &0, 1011. TERRIFIC BLAST" ROCKS NEW YORK Dynamite Cargo Blows Up at Jersey Central Dock. 30 DEAD; HUNDREDS HURT Buildings Shaken, Windows Shattered snd People Thought It Was an Earthquake, and Panic Almost Fol lowed. Forty tons of dynamite exploded on the Jor.-oy water front in the middle ol Z,,ui)) people ami 5,000,000 things happened. k.i.iiaut,;; Horn the North river end of pk-r No. 7 In the Jersey Central's freight -terminal in Communipaw, the eoneu.s.sion rocked Manhattan from end to end. Jersey trembled for many miles back of the marHhes. Away out in I-ons Island people started up In trembling buildings and thought it wa;-, an earthquake. Everywhere the ky.scrapeiri vibrated and spilled win dow glass Into the streets. In the Immediate neighborhood of the explosion the destruction was BO complete that it was next to Impos fcible to determine the number of the killed or the precise reason a car loud of dynamite and a quantity stored in two lighters lot go. It is probable that tiii it y men lost their lives and that, twenty live of these were blown to pieces near the pier end. It was several minutes before the railroad men in the terminal under stood exactly what had occurred. Af ter they had climbed out of the heap ed up debris, their first business was to aro for the commuters, who were running about aimlessly, with blood running from the glass cuts on cheek and head, ami for their own men who had been injured in the upheaval of glass and Iron and splinters. Trainmen looked out toward the end of pier No. 7 and saw that 200 feet of the solid pile set pier had been bitton off short, so that the splintered edges of beams projected over black water; that a whole car of dynamite had vanished along with the pier end; that another car con taining cases of dynamite In sticks had been ripped to pieces, spilling dy namite over the debris; that two big lighters, the Katherine V. and the Whistler, that had been takiug on dy namite for the Dupont De Nemours company, were gone, and that the ships and lighters and barges laid up by the piers were piled with wreck age, and that wherever their eyes traveled along the water front of the terminal there was nothing but a mass of wreckage. There was not a spark of fire anywhere. All the way up through the terminal from the riverside men were lying against box cars or sitting somewhere In the wreckage feeling out their own injuries. Nineteen out of twenty, pos sibly, were bleeding from gashes In the face or Lead caused by a shower of splintered glass from far on high. Home were bruised from being hurled Hgainst cars or thrown head first from their ( hairs in the pier offices or had been knocked down by driven planks. Up in the train shed and waiting room of the glass denuded Jersey Cen tral depot theer was a wild scene of pandemonium. Imagine a steady rain of broken glass over an acre of ground for iKuhaps half a minute, and imag ine 300 people running for cover over that acre, and you will have a faint Idea of what took place in the depot. There were fragments of bodies here and there, a log and an arm high up in the rigging of the Norwegian ship Ingrid; a dead man in the hold of the same ship; shattered torso among the coal piles on pier No. 9. But there were twenty-live men equarely at the center of the explo sion, and not a trace of them save three mangled bodies were found. Three-quarters of a mile away the oaptaln of the tugboat Tuohy was blown through his pilot house and killed, which made up the number of dead positively known as tour. There was hardly any duuN. in t :e minds of the railroad men a te. they had tallied with the barge .iepj-ers and the dock workmen w ho La ; Lee less than 2(0 yards away Ire m t. e dy namite car, some of them, that r.il 1 the twenty-live men had been de stroyed. The violence of the explosion cloud ed its cause. The men who might have told a straight story were dead and the dynamite had taken care of other evidence. Theories and stories passed wildly all through the yards. The railroad men agreed that there "was a preliminary explosion either of a boiler or of escaped gasoline on board the lighter Whistler or on the lighter Katherine W. an explosion which instantly set on the dynamite loaded in their holds and still on board one box car.
