Hall, manager of Holding's soda fac
tory m this city, was murdered about
midnight lasl night in a stable at the
roar of the workshop. The body was
placed in a dnonvaj, which connects
the .stable with the factory, covered
with straw, and set on lire, for the
purpose of covering the crime. The
lire was extinguished before much
damage was done to the building.
The doctor who examined tho re
mains, found four or five large cuts
about the head. The deed was done
with a heavy iron bar, about three
feel long, which was laying near ihe
body covered Avith blood.
The supposition is that robbery was
the object of tho crime, as a gold
watch the deceased earned was miss
ing, Avith other jewelry. The safe was
also robbed or its contents, but it is
not known how much was taken. The
deceased was a middle aged man, un
man ied, well-known in this comity.
The robber is supposed to be a" col
ored man, who has been about the
city, and who hasdissappeared. If lie
had been captured J:isl night, he
would have surely been lynched.

Cixcixx.m, Ohio, July 15. Joseph
Procter, a well lmown resideut of
Columbus, was an eye witness of the
explosion, and he gave a very vivid
account of the sad affair.
UI hardly know how I can describe
the awful occurrence, as lam still
dazed from the effects. I was sitting
with a friend near lung's mill and
during the afternoon sauntered up the
road lo the cartridge factory.
When the freight train came along
I started toward my friend's house,
aud on reaching thetop of the hill, I
turned around just as the freight
train was making a rnnning switch
on the side track. A brake-man was
on one of the cars as they shot onto
the side track, and he Wtos waving his
hand to some one on the train. As I
looked I saw two detached cars bump
against what I supposed was an empty
ear on the side track.
An instant later there w;i3 a mm
bling nowe, and then the very ground
.eemed to open. I saw a" puff of
smoke, followed a second later by an
other. The cars disappeared," the
slalion and powder house and dwell
ings seemed to follow, and the work of
destruction had only just commenced.
I stood rooted to the ground. I had
an idea, of course, what had occurred,
but 1 could not realize it. I kuew
many lives were going out, but T was
powerless to lend assistance.
Tnen dense volumes of ilamc and
smoke came pouring from the doors
and windows or the cartridge factory,
and I saw men, women and children
tearing at each other, in frantic en
deavors to escape. Tho explosion and
the fire at the cartridge house, seemed
to be simultaneous. The bnilding did
not catch lire in the ordinary way, but
the flame seemed to penetrate tho
doors and windows from all sides. I
saw a number come out, but some cer
tainly perished in tho flames."

'What happens to me or any other
