Explosion of Gas the
Many Valuable Records Were
Supreme Court Library Ruined
By Associated Prow tn Hie Jonrnnl.
WA3iiiNaTON,Noy. 7. An explosion
and fire at 5:13 Sunday afternoon
wrecked the supreme court room and
the rooms Immediately adjoining It
oil the main floor ot the cupkol. The
damage Is enormous. The entire ecu
tral-castern part of the great marble
pile, from the main Door to tho sub
tcrrancau basement, practically Is a
iimbs of ruins. Tho torco of the ex
plosion wus so heavy that the coping
stones on the outer walls, just cast of
tl.e point where tho explosion oc
curred, were bulged out nearly two
Inches, und locked doors were forced
from their hinges quite 150 feet from
the scene of It. I'M re followed the
explosion so quickly as to seem pract.
ically simultaneous with It.
Before tho flames could be subdued,
tho priceless documents In tho record
room had been almost totally de
stroyed, ntid serious damage hud been
done in the marshal's otllceand so me
minor rooms In the Immediate vicin
ity. The library of(the supreme court,
located Immediately beneath the su.
prcmc court room, was badly damaged
by fire, smoke und wutcr, practically
destroying the great collection of law
reference books. Tho library con
tained about 20,000 volumes and was
used not only by the Justices of the
supremo court but by members of
congress and lawyers practicing be
fore the supremo court.
The Capitol building wjs the sccno
of wreck nna dissolution today, folnw
log the explosion of gas in the base
ment, under the supremo courtrooms
und tho tire which wrought serious
huvoo lust night. An examination
of supreme court room, however, It
showed the dumugo wus confined to
the dsscolored walls and celling and
soaked carpets. The main loss to
the court Is In marshals office,
and storago loom, where the valuable
old records are kopt. The oxtent of
this last loss is not yet determined.
Senator McMillan's committee room
on District of Columbia, was prepared
with a bench und seats for justices
and rows of scats for attorneys and
spectators, The quarters are rather
cramped. Assistant. Architect ot
Capitol, Wood, said:
"No heavy sustaining arches or
pillars have given way so far as found.
Kor the present lb does not seem that
rebuilding any part of the capltol
will be necessary"
Thodamago tliut cannot be made
good was done- In the tile room of the
supremo court In tho basement, were
were stored all the official records und
original copies of opinions, from the
foundation of the government, lint
few papers wore absolutely destroyed,
these which suffered that fa to were
among the most valuable In the room,
Including manuscript, prepared in
handwriting of Jurists during the
days of Washington, Jefferson and
Justice Ilurluu said that the
library was very valuable. Many of
the works It contained would, he
thought, be dllllcult to replace.
Librarian Clarke, ufter a cursory
examination, necessarily made by the
light of lanterns, expressed the
opinion that many of the hooks could
bo saved, although they had been
drenched by water from the streams
poured into the library for two hours
or more after the explosion occurred.
Tho most serious damage, In the
opinion of the Justice of the supreme
court, Is to tho records stored In the
sub.basement. These included all of
the records of cases and opinions
rendered by the fathers of the Judic
iary of the government.
The JouknalIios arranged for com
plete election bulletins, and will baye
them posted at Its office for the ben
efit of the public.
