Terrific IZxnlosIon Occurred.
The men marched in this order. Every
thing wont smoothly and ttiere were no
incidents until the column inarching
south on Grand boulevard was just
erossiug Oakwood boulevard. Then a
terrific explosion occurred. The men on
the caisson, supposed to be Donovan and
Doyle, were literally blown to pieces
and others were thrown luanv feet by
the violence of the concussion. Four of
the horses drawing the caisson fell in
their tracks, shot through and horribly
mangled, while three others were blown
GO feet ahead against the trees on the
boulevard, dying instantly. Tho caisson
was blown to pieces, not a piece larger
than a man's hand being found. The
louIevard looked like a battlefield.
There was a quick series of explosions
after the first report and shrapnel shot
rained like hail among the trees on the
boulevard and pierced the surrounding
Confusion of the Troop.
The concussion broke every window in
the houses for blocks away. The walls
and roofs showed the terrible effects of
the explosion. The rear part of the
caisson lay .scattered over the ground.
With the explosion came the confusion
of tl;e troops and for a moment the men
and officers seeni'-d powerless to move.
To this was added the fright of the oc
cupants of the surrounding houses, who
ran screaming from their dwellings, only
to be frightened by the sight in the
street. A still alarm had been turned in
and with the department came the stock
yards iKlice patrol wagon. The wagon
was sent back to the station and ir re
turocd with Sj men und r command of
Lieutenant Morrissey. lie then tele
phonrd to Hyde Park for reinforcements
and Captain Dollar arrived with 2o more
men. Later Assistant Inspector Fitz
patrick and L entnant Bonfield arrived.
It was some little time before the two
dead artillery men could be found.
Mangled Beyond ltecoguitioii.
One of them, mangled beyond recog
nition, but supposed to le Doyle, had
been blown over a board sign 2. feet
high and was found in the vacant lot be
hind it. One leg aud an arm were gone.
The other man, supposed to be Donavan,
had been thrown 00 feet diagonally to
the right and was found in a vacant lot
near the Lake Shore tracks. Joseph
Gaylor was found near where he was
Great damage was wrought by the ex
plosion to the neighboring property.
Windows in most of the surrounding
houses sustainei much damage, it being
estimated at $10,0011.
General Miles directed Captain Mich
eler aud Colonel Wilot-n, of the com
missary department, and a former com
mander of the battery, to go to the scene
of the accident and secure a report of the
affair. On the return of Wilotson, he
gave the following account of the acci
dent, preparatory to writing his report:
BH Theory of the KxjiIomoii.
"The command under escort of eavalry
was taking its marching exercise. The
caisfon consists of a limber on which is a
chest and the carriage containing two
chests more of ammunition, making
three chests on the caisson. The explo
sion teenrred in the chest of the limber
und the force of tho explosion was to the
rear, tearing away the caisson and ignit
ing the powder in the other two chests.
The first caisson carried 4J shrapnel and
44 catridges. The shrapnel are loaded
percussion shell, containing fulminates
and small balls and fired from the
cannon by a cartridge containing as in
this case 3 and 34 pounds of powder.
Aly theory of the accident is that the
screw plug at the base of one of the
shrapnel became loosened, some of the
powder leaked out and being ground and
pounded by the jolting of the limber
ignited the powder in the cartridges ex
ploding them and the ignition of the
cartridges in the other two cheats fol
lowed. Horse Killed by Missile.
In the second chest of the caisson were
26 time shells. 10 shrapnel and their
complement of It cartridges, in the third
and rear chests were 42 shells and 14
cartridges. The force of the explosion
can readily Ik? understood when it h re
memlered that the i:!2 cartridges con
tained 193 pounds of jiowuer. The men
wno were in the detachment said they
jrecocmzei two distinct reports, seeming
ly almost simultaneous. This was the
limber chest, followed almost in tho in
stant by the o'her chest. The rattle of
explosions that followed the great deton
ations was the bursting of the shrapnel
as they struck tho ground. The men on
the caisson were lifted by the explosion
while the horses were killed by the mis
Biles from the shrapnel.
I take no stock in the theory that
dynamite had anything to do with it.
The greatest caution is always taken
alwut the ammunition. Each chest is
locked by a Yale lock specially made for
the government. There are no kev-s in
' any battery that will unlock any but the
chest to which it belongs and I do not
believe there is a key in Chicago that
' will unlock any of our artillery chests.
The ammunition is a couple of years old
and has been jolted over the rough roads
m Kansas and yet going at a light pace
on the smooth streets of Chicago, the ex
plosion took place."

Sachasiento, July 17. During the
hearing of a writ of habeas corpus for
the release of three Dunsmuir strikers
, before Judge Catliu, of the state supreme
court, a detachment of regulars marched
into the court and with evident intention
' of taking the prisoner. Judge Catlin
' immediately arose and called upon per
1 sons who were present to resist any at
I tempt of the regulars to take away tho
' strikers. Assistant Attorney Knight ex
j citedly jumped to his feet and met the
soldiers as they were entering the court
room. He ordered them to return to the
! depot, which th.-v did after considerable
hesitancy. The excitement in the court
i room, was intense. Several of the spec
; tators leached for their hip pockets and
I announced their determination to fol
low Judge Ca'lin's instructions to pre
vent the regulars from tamng away the
prisoners. Others securely barred the
doors leading to the court room and
threateningly declared their intention of
resisting the regulars.
While the excitement was at fever
heat the district attorney arose and
waved the regulars back. He then com
mandtd them to return to their quarters
at the dej)ot. After the excitement had
subsided Judge Catlm ordered the three
prisoners remauded to the custody of
the chief of police. They are charged
with stealing an engine at Dunsmuir.
By direction of Marshal Baldwin and
Colonel Graham. District Attorney
Kuight later sent a letter to Judge Cat
lin explaining that the soldiers had
merely btvii sent to the con: troom as
witnesses and hal brought their arms
with thum under misapprehensien and
stating that the federal officers wish to
correct the unpn-:ou that they are in
any way exceeding their authority.
Notwithstanding Knight's explanation
that the soldiers were present as wit
nesses, the fact lemaina that they first
entered the sheriff's office and demanded
the surrender of the prisoners. Deputy
Sheriff Rooney was in charge of the
office at the time and informed them that
the men were in Judge Catlin's court
room. They immediately started up
stairs to the courtioom. but Rooney
reached theie first and told the judge of
the object of the soldier?.
OAKLAND MOBS CAUSE TROUBLE.
Stop Trains and Waylay Nonunion Mon at
Sax Francisco, July 17. The South
ern Pacific, backed by the combined mili
tary forces of the federal and state
government.-), continues to maintain a
fairly satisfactory passenger service in
northern California. But notwithstand
ing this formidable military array the
railroad officials have been unable to re
trieve the lost management of their
freight business. The passenger service,
too. is by no means restored, for the
trains are sidetracked at night time as a
precautionary measure against train
In Oalcland Monday morning the strik
ers formed into several riotous mobs of
about :-'00 men each. All incoming and
outgoing passenger trains were so strong
ly guarded that they were not inter
fered with, but the fury of these mobs
fell upon such luckhss nonunion men as
the sttikers were able to wayl.iy going to
and from their work. Several times the
troops were called out lo disperse the
rioters and rescue nonunion men. Shortly
after neon a freight train was started
fiom the yards on the mole. At the Sev
enth sheet crossing the nonunion men
in charge of the train found themselves
at the ineicy of a mob of strikers. A
striker had managed to climb aboard
and cut tho airbrake. The train was
stalled andjthe rioters, who were soon
swarming about, had drawn all the
coupling pins. Then a troop of cavalry
and a company of infantry came down
upon the mob. The cavalrymen used
sabers and clubbed with their pistols anil
the foot soldiers prodded freely with
In the struggle two shots were fired by
the soldiers, though no one was hit. Tue
strikers were finally put to flight. A
number of the rioters sought refuge in
the cottage of a striking yard foreman.
The soldiers afterward raided the houso
and arrested 21 men. Several of the
rioters were severely cut and bruised.
The freight train was run to a side track
and abandoned. After this occurrence
the soldiers going on trains as guards
were given positive orders to shoot any
one who attempted to interfere with any
train. Finally a freight train was sent
guarded by about i.l,i militia. Out of

active in organizing the strike. At
Sacramento several huudr-d men re
turned to work. They wore compelled
to make an agreement to withdraw from
the A. R. U.
There was considerable excitement at
Dunsmuir. Captain Bonlson, command
ing a Stockton militia company that
was serving as guard on a passenger
train, arrested a citizen who crossed the
tracks. The captain flourished a revolv
er and arrested him. At Dunsmuir tin?

for me to answer as to the best methods

these questions out and act honestly and
i not lay back iu your seats and watch an

cowardly as to bo afraid to lose a few

There is nothing in tho present outlook
more cheering in a small way than this
gradually growing consumption of Aus

CLEVELAND ON WOOL.
President Dislikes Woolgrower Be
cause There Is Xo Trust.
President Cleveland has a woolly rec
ord. He expressed himself very plain
ly, telling the people all about the farm
ers and their wool iu his third annual
message to congress, Dec. 6, 1887. He
did not commit himself so far as to say
that he knew, but he thought "it may
be fairly assumed that a large propor
tion of the sheep owned by the farmers
throughout the country are found in
small flocks numbering from 25 to 50."
Upon this assumption he argued that
"the benefit of the present tariff on
wool is illusory" and proceeded to show
from his point of view that it was a
"burden upou the poor, the employed
and unemployed, the sick and well and
the young and old. " He further proved
to his own complete satisfaction that it
was "a tax which, with relentless
grasp, is fastened upou the clothing ot
every man, woman and child iu the
land. ' ' He did not state upou which
part of the clothing it was fastened or
whether fastened with a safety pin as
well with "a relentless grasp." This
was an oversight.
Senator Jones of Nevada, in his great
tariff speech of 1892, took up Mr. Cleve
land's sheepishness, and estimating 65
per cent as being "a large proportion'
showed that we had in 1887 as many as
S30,960 separato farmers who owned
flocks of 35 sheep each and that there
were 4,000,000 persons directly and pe
cuniarily interested in the wool tariff.
As President Cleveland desired free '
? - vslVTO
trade in wool because "a large propor
tion of tho sheop owned by the farmers
throughout the country aro found in
small flocks numbering from 25 to 50,"
the inferenco is that free wool would
novcr have been thought of by him or
his party if tho flocks had been largo
ones, concentrated among a few owners,
or, in fact, if there had beeu a sheep
trust, n raw wool trust or both. Snch
trust could havo dictated its own terms,
but tho unfortunato 830,960 separate
farmers must be made to suffer. Presi
