Rome. April 23. About 7 o'clock this
morning a tremendous explosion shook,
the citv to its foundation spreading
terror and dismay on all sides.
The cupola of the house of parliament
immediately after the explosion shook
violently and then collapsed with a
crash that, added still further to the
feeling of terror.
The scenes in the streets and in the
houses after the explosion, have, possibly
never before been equalled during the
history of modern Some.
All the thoroughfares were strewn with
bricks, stones, splinters and other debris
hurled there by the force of the power
When something like order was re
stored the real cause of the explosion be
came known. It was discovered that an
immense powder magazine at Possier
Pantalo, four kilometers from here, had
exploded and that it had caused enor
mous damage to the neighboring fort,
which was filled with soldiers.
The officer in command of the fort
heard a rumbling sound previous to the
final explosion, and hastily ordered his
soldiers to leave the fort. He succeeded
in. averting a terrible disaster; as it was
several peasants who were in the vicin
ity .of the scene of the explosion were
killed outright and a number of others
were more or less injured. .
All the houses within the radius of a
kilometer of the scene 'of . the explosion
are seriously damaged.
The. exact number of the killed and
wounded is yet unknown. Two officers
were dangerously wounded and fully 125
civilians have been taken to the differ
Several famous stained glass windows
in the Vatican building were shattered.
The full amount of the damage is not
known at present but the loss is severe.
Another report says that five are killed
in addition to the large number of
wounded already, mentioned and forty
small houses reduced to ruin by the ex
plosion. - .
The magazine contained 250 tons of
powder. The cause of the explosion is
unknown. . .

Scottdale, Pa., April 23. The latest
reports concerning the riot at the Ade
laide plant of Frick & Co., last night are
that none of the persons injured will die.
Sheriff McCormack'was badly wounded.
No trouble is reported from other parts
of that region. i
Shortly after noon" today Sheriff Mc
Cormick began evictions at Leisingring
plant No. 3. While attending ' to his
duties a Hungarian woman named
Glasho, shot at him, the ball inflicting a
painful flesh wound in his hand.
The sheriff grappled with her and
wrested the revolver from her hands.
The infuriated woman then secured an
axe and attacked him with the weapon,
giving him an . ugly cut on the foot.
McCormick shot the woman in the leg.
By 'this time a great crowd of strikers
had gathered around and one Hungarian
made for the sheriff. McCormick shot
the man in the mouth. Deputies were
gathered in knots by this time and evic
tions were carried through. It is not
believed any one of the three, persons
shot is fatally wounded.

A Torpedo Creates Havoc at Valparaiso
Poor People Literally Starving.
San Francisco, April 21. Private ad
vices from Valparaiso by steamer from
Panama this morning report the blow
ing tip of the wooden gunboat Pilcomayo
belonging to the insurgents. The gov
ernment late one night sent out a steam
launch fitted up as a torpedo boat, with
the hope of getting rid of some of the
ships blockading the port. The boat
steered for a vessel supposed to be the
Blanco Encalda, the .big ironclad that
has played havoc with' the ports on sev
eral occasions. The launch crept close
to the cruiser, whose crew, never dream
ing of an attack from that quarter, were
trying to make out what was going on
in the harbor, where guns and rockets
were being fired in order to attract the
attention of the rebel ships. When
close to the vessel it was discovered they
were near the Pilcomayo, instead of the
Blanco. It was too late to rectify the
mistake, so the torpedo was sent on its
mission of destruction. It struck the
gunboat fair amidships, and lifted her
clean out of the water. The government
claims that the entire crew of the gun
boat, numbering 135 men was lost. The
rebels claim that thirty of the crew, in
cluding the captain, were picked up by
one of the boats of the fleet.
The poorer classes of Valparaiso are
literally starving, and have broken into
stores all over the city in their efforts to
obtain food. Twice they have attacked
the barracks and been only repulsed
after thirty of them were shot down by

A Crank Who Says He Will
New. York, April 21. Miss Gabrielle
Greeley, the only surviving child of
Horace Greeley, whose wedding with
Rev. Frank Montross Glendenning will
take place at Pleasantville, N. Y., on
Thursday morning next, heard last
evening a somewhat alarming report
from. Black Rock, near Buffalo, to the
effect that Alfred A. Banks, formerly a
resident of Chappaqua, imagines he is
the happv man, and is coming on to
claim her. Banks, who is a crank, has
bought a wedding suit of the finest broad
cloth, and undoubtedly is in earnest.
He lived in Chappaqua, 'the home of
Miss Greeley, for two years, working in
the cooper shop of A. J. Quimby. He
proved to be a good workman and in one
week made 700 barrels. He is a fine
strapping big southerner, with black
beard and eyes, a very muscular man.
and Dossesees trreat nower of endurance.
He displayed many peculiarities while in
Uuimby s employ, cniet among which
was his devotion to Miss Greeley, about
wnom he talked on ail occasions, and
declared she had promised to marry him
Miss Greeley, when interviewed, said
"Of course I never promised to marry
him, nor did we ever have any conversa
tion on the subject. The nearest he ever
came to it was to say that he was if he
was king of heaven he would make me
his queen. I laughed. I could not keep
him away from Sunday school, and he
torcea his services on me in many cases
where I would be glad, to dispense with
them. He was so persistent that at
length I became alarmed and was very
glad to see him leave-the village."
W II K AT SPECULATORS.
Small Fortunes that Have Keen Made
and Z.ost by the Recent Kise.
San Francilco, April 21. The big
rise in price has brought correspondingly
large prfits to California operators who
had judgment, means and nerve to buy
before the boom came. In this market
George W. McNear, admittedly the grain
king of California, is said to "be ahead
the most. His profits are' estimated to
be about $500,000 at the present time.
Next to McNear comes Starr & Co., the
great milling firm. Their profits are
said to have been nearly $400,000. Next
comes William Dresbach. Mr. Dresbach
made about $250,000 in wheat charters
before the big boom came. This gave
him the requisite capital to load up with
the cereal. He was a big buyer of op
tions when wheat was quoted "at between
$1.50 and $1.60 but he hag sold out a num
ber of times, gone short, bought in again
and gone long so frequently that his
winnings are not so great as they would
have been had he "stood pat" on his
original purchases. He has possibly
made $100,000 in addition to his big
profits on wheat charters.
Charles B. Stone has had a similar ex
perience on a smaller scale to that of
Dresbach. He bought and sold and
bought and sold but is possibly $50,000
ahead. Then came Blum, Baldwin &
Eyre with reported winnings of $20,000 to
$30,000 and a number of other operators
are named who have gained from $5000
There have also been heavy losses.
The heaviest loss in this market has
been made by a friend of Jacob Eppinger,
who is re po-ited to be short on 40,000
tons of wheat at low prices. The Alders
also have some customers who are largely
short, but all parties referred to have
abundant means. '
