AN EXPLOSION OF MEAL DUsT.

by n explosion of inealdust which com
pletely wrecked the a three story brick
building n North I Tainted street, occu
pied by David Oliver as an oatmeal mill.
Si eral adjoining buildings were also
shattered. The explosion occurred shortly
after 2 o'clock and was terrific, shaking
buildings a mile away. Buildings in the
immediate vicinity were bombarded with
Hying bricks and stones, and nearly every
pane of glass within a radius of six
bltKkswas smashed. Almost before the
rumble of the explosion had died away
flames sprang from the wrecked mill and
the whole place was ablaze in a few min
utes. The fire spread with incredible
rapidity, and when the first fire compan
ies reached the scene they found a block
of roaring flames to contend with. En
gines were stationed at every available
point around the blazing patch, and

Persons who were asleep in buildings

The proprietor and manager of the
mill were on the ground early this morn
ing, but have been unable to learn posi
tively the cause of the explosion. Each
thinks that oat meal dust may have
caused it, but the terrific force is unpre
cedented if this theory be accepted. No
other reasonable explanation is offered,
however, and an explosion of dust is ac
cepted until a better reason can be found.
The boilers have been uncovered and
are intact, which disposes of the theory
that they had txploded. The police say
there is no eyidencc of the use of dyn
amite. John Holmes was found lying
in an alley across the street, and will die.
No trace could be found of the other
three men Charles Miller, Charles Coop
er and John Smith and it is believed
their bodies are buried in the debris.
THE ELECTRIC AO K.
Prof. Elisha Gray remarks that elec
trical science has made a greater advance
in the last twenty years than in all the
0,000 historic years preceding. More is
discovered in one day now than in a
thousand years of the middle ages. We
find all sorts of work for electricity to
do. We make it carry our messages,
drive our engine, ring our door bell, and
scare the burglar; we take it as a medi
cine, light our gas with it, see by it, hear
from it, talk with it, and now we are
beuinnins: to teach it to write.
Hayti has illegally seized one of our
merchant ships. Canada has illegally
seized about 200. Hayti is a poor little
waif of a country. Canada is a great
empire with the greatest of empires be
hind her. Four American men-o'-war
are going down to Hayti to blow her up
or do something similarly dreadful. But
as to Canada nnd the empire behind her
we arc not going to be so vicious. This
is an Administration which looks before
it leaps, and if the leap looks bact it
doesn't take it. But if there is nothing
to leap over, why, then, it makes a brave,
old, resolute dash. N. Y. Trib.
