Terrible Explosion In a Mexican Mine Killed
Chihuahua, Mux., Feb. 0. Word
has just reaobod hereof ono of tho most
terrible mining disasters thnt ever oc
curred in Mexico. An explosion in
tho San Andres mine, sltnated in n re.
mole locality of the Sierra Mndres, in
tho western part of the stato of Da
rango, caused tho death of 87 mon,
women and children, and injured
many otnors. mo catastropno was
due to the explosion ol seventl hundred
cases of dynamite, which was stored in
an underground chamber of iho mine
Electric wires connecting with the
hoisting machinery passed through, the
room in which this dynamite was
stored, and it is supposod that these,
wires became crossed, thereby causing
a fire which set oil tho dynamite.
All ol the killed and injured wore
located on the surface, most of them
occupying residences right ovor the
under-ground workings of the mine.
The explosion toro away' the wholo top
of tho mountain on which the village
was located, and men, women and
children were blown into small pieces.
Among those who were killed was Her
man Luetzmun, the superintendent of
the mine and all the members of his
At the time of the explosion there
were several hundred miner at work
in the lower workings of the mine,
and, strange to say, none of them were
seriously injured, although thoy were
all severely shooked by the torriiio
force of the explosion. They rushed
to the surface through one of the shafts
that was not filled with debris and the
sight that met their eyes in the almost
complete destruction of tho little vil
lage is indescribable. The work of
gathering np the fragments of the un
fortunate victims of the explosion scat
tered over the mount tin was begun,
and they wero placed together and
buired in one grave. But few of the
mangled remains wero rcngnizable.
