" In less than half an hour the 80,000 ban els of oil was liberated and, gathered Into huge pools hero and there, was sanding high Into tho air great volumes of flame. As tho blaze gathered headway the smoke, wbicb was of the most stifling and offensive description, spread all over the city, and the firemen and troops who were compelled to remain near the burning masses were overcome with nausea in many cases. The air become so black eventually that tho soldiers and flre- men were withdrawn some d istanco, it being evident that no efforts on their part could check the progress of the terrible conflagration. Before this action was taken, however, many of tho troops and firemen had been carried away to tho hospital, having been injured either by flying pieces of blazing wood or overcome by the heat The firemen wero then directed to confine their attention to property in the immediate vicinity of the great blaze. This they aro still doing. A Fanlo In the Street*. Whon the people living In the neighborhood realized what a terrible disaster had befallen the city a panic ovartook them. Nearly all are of the poorer class, and some of them began moving their household goods Into the street This exam pie was followed by others, and in a short time the streets in the neighborhood wore blocked up, interfering with the movement of troops and firemen; The panic was brought to an end by the city offlciils, many of whom personally helped tbo affrighted people to get their goods back into their homes. Origin' of tho Dlnaster. The explosion occurred ~ in a workshop where a large number of old cartridges were being token to pieces. Many men and women wore employed in the shop and they were actively engaged in breaking up the old cartridges. There were fully Uo.OOO.OOO of these in and about the premises, apart of them already broken up. The flataes cover two acres of ground and rise to an immensa height . Exploiloni Still Going On. Amid the fierce roar of tho flames are heard from Vfme the loud reports from explosions, to which there seems to b« no end. Tbo explosions am supposed to bo of packages of cartridges stored in the buildings, which seem to remain intact until the hot tongues of flame ere actually upon them. The shipping at the African docks and ttt the American docks is In imminent danger, andt\ll the facilities for removing the vessels from the immediate vicinity ol the conflagration are being pressed into service.

Tho scenes at the hospitals where the wounded have been conveyed aro heartrending. The ships at the American docks were saved, tbe wind being favorable. A Regular Bombardmeuta The explosions at the cartridge factory still continue at frequent intervals, and the flying shells render tuo work of the firemen and soldiers extremely perilous The factory was known as the Carviluian factory. Tho communal council recently condemned thu factory as dangerous, but for some unexplained reason it was allowed to continue operations. The victims are mostly factory girls. Windows wore shattered at polnta three miles away. The loss iu property cannot be stated yet, but it will reach millions. It Wa» Probably Not Mm, inwrence, but» Yoiins Ulnshnmtoii Woman.
