Chicago. July IT. -A frightful acei
dent occurred iu luis city by which a
number of Unitd States soldiers were
killed and ninny injured. First reports
aid fifteen were killed, but the number
Is probably exaggerated. While troops
were on the way from the lake front to
a new station in Hyde Park, one of the
cnissuus explodad, dealing death on all
fciiles. The cause of the explosion is un
known, but it is supposed a fuse iu oue
of the cartridges not loose and was fired
by friction with the shells in the caisson.
The explosion ocrtirred at Grand and
Oakwood boulevards, tiie most fashiona
ble jiurt of the city.
'ine dead and injured were taken in
charge by the surviving soldiers and ac
cess to tlie scene cut oil while surgeons
were aitcmliuc the injured. Following is
a list of the killed nml injured: Killed
Farrier (iuller. Troop G, Seventh cavalry;
Artilleryman Doiiovu, Buttery F, Second
artillery: Artilleryman J. Doyle, same bat
tery. Injured- -Sargcunt I.iimer, Second
artillery; Private Stoltz, Troop G, Seveuth
cavalry; Private Alleu and Private O'Don
nell of the same troop, and a number of
others whose names ure not yet lenrned.
The body of one Artilleryman ridiug ou
the cai,sl,n was literally torn to pieces.
Portions of the body were picked up at a
riistuuee of I0 yards fruiu the scene of
the explosion. The police have informa
tion a fourth unknown artilleryman was
The troop and battery were in charge of
Captain Dodd of the Seventh cavalry and
were proceediag from tlie lake front to
new quarters at Hyde Park. At the cor
ner ot Oakwood avenue and Grand boule
vard the lli.tchkiss yun with its caisson
was in the rear of the command when
suddenly the ground shook with a fear
ful explosion and a burst of flame and
smoke shot from the caissou. A storm of
bullets fk-w in every direction, windows
were shattered for blocks nrouud and
people walking on the sidewalks were
thrown down. When the smoke cleared
eifiht heavy artillery horses were lying
dead on the prrountl, their carcasses nearly
torn to pieces. Ail around lay dead aud
wounded men. The brown stone home of
Mrs. Devlin at the corner of Oakwood and
Grand boulevards whs perforated by sever
al bullets which passed through the walls.
Glass was shattered mid walls and orna

TRAIN DITCHED FOR REVENGE.
A Crime that Cost Oue l ire and Undan
Bered Many Oilier.
Battle Ci:kek, Mich., July 17 .A bad
wreck on the Chicago and Grand Trunk
at this city occurred nt 3 o'clock in the
morning. It was the work of men who
had a rudp; against the road and who
wanted to j;et even with the company.
Some time after midnight the bolts were
removed from the fish pl.ntes which held
the rails together and the plates taken
from the rails at the top of Austin hill,
just west of this city. Train Xo. 6, due
here at was twenty minutes late at
this station, and was running fast to make
tip time. The train had just passed the
top of the hill and was coming down the
grade when the engine and train left the
track and jumped into the ditch.
Seventy-Five rnssengera ou Hoard.
The train was the same one that was ia
the awl til wreck here last fail. It con
sisted of the express car, baggage car,
one day coach, and four Pullmans. When
the rails spread the engine ran about 100
feet aud then went over on its side iu the
ditch. The tender followed it and tlie day
coach and one of the Pullmans turned
across the track. The trucks of the cars
were forced off and they were badly dam
aged. The end of the baggage cars was
crushed in and nil of the derailed coaches
were stove iu aud badly demol
ished. There were seventy-five pas
sengers ou the train and nil were more or
less shaken cp, cut and bruised, but fort
unately none are badly injured. The day
coach, which went over on its side, was
lighted with gas aud the lights went out
the instant it left the raiL The engineer
and tiremen of the train were from Els
den, Ills., nnd were making their first run
ou this section of the road. Fireman
Thomas Crow was thrown several feet
from the engine and his neck broken. He
died ulmcst instantly.
Woman Kcriously Injured.
Engineer Miller was badly cut about
the head aud face. Xirakeman Mitchell,
Conductor Bishop aud Baggageman
Adams were also badly cut aud bruised,
but their injuries are not fatal. The most
seriously injured of the passengers is a
woman named Hoberts of Chicago, who
was badly cut about the head und face,
und is also injured internally. Many
of the passengers were cut and
bruised, but are not seriously injured.
There is no doubt, but the wreck was the
result of a deliberate plot to wreek the
train and take the lives of a nuuiber of
passengers. The same kiud of a plot was
attempted at Vicksburg last week. Oue
of the tracksmen fortunately found that
the plates had been removed from the
rails iu the same uiunuer as they were
this time and in time to prevent an acci
dent. There is yet no clew to the perpe
trators of the crime, but several meu are
