WILKESBARBE , Pa. , March 0. The
generator in the gas works in the citj
exploded frith a force sufficient 'tc
shako the city from center to circum
ference. The greater part of the
building and machinery was completely
destroyed. The concussion brokr
windows a quarter of a milo away.
There was nobody in the building at
the time and it is supposed that the
fires were left so carelessly as to over
heat the generator. The company
uses the Lowe process for the manu
facture of gas from koroseno. It is
known as the Wilkosbarre gas-com
pany. The loss will reach $10,000.
Later it is learned that two mon

explosion , ono of whom waa cut se
riously while the other was uninjured.
Henry Richart , who was passing -tho
works at the time , was struck by a
fragment and seriously hurt. The
