Once the low, rumblini? sound f heard no one had a chance to escape. The building seemed to cringe up aa though they were made of pasteboard. The official of the Fire Boat Engine II, realizing that great damage ku done and that the loss or lire t and Injuries to others would o great, j summoned help from every quarter j that they could reach, so that within j a few minutes ambulances, patrol i wagons and fire apparatus were hur-rying to the scene. Molaaaea Ran Over Curb There was difficulty m getting near j the scene of BsC fearful accident, be- ! cause the more than l.OOO.Oui) gallons of molassws found Its way through the streets and piled up bo quickly that it was higher than the curbing in every place within two blocks of the soene. The police, firemen and civilians who were near plunged through the great streams of heavy liquid, eager to Hive aid a best they could. The shock of the explosion has resulted in dismantling the buildings of the distilling plant, the buildings of the Public Works Department close by, and a large section of the "It" structure along Commercial st carne 1 tumbling into the street, to add to the confusion. In fact, for a radius of some 200 to i 260 feet there was a scene of great (wreckage, while the shouts and I screams of the dying and injured rent the air. For the first quarter of an hour pandemonium reigned. down, and In addition to ia more horses were so frightfully injured that the police had had to end their sufferings by shooting them. In the plant of the Public Works Department several horses were killed outright and more had to be shot. Engineer Leahy Miasing The force of the explosion seemed to be greatest inthe direction toward the North End, or toward the Bat-n r-st wharf side of the distilling plant. The fireboat quarters, as well as the Public Works Department lag Department, identified Owen Gorman and James Lennon as two of his workmen who were killed vhen the building collapsed in which they were eating their lunch. Owen Gorman lived In Charles-town. James Lennon is a brother-in-law of the late John L. Sullivan. John Barry, yard boss in the North End Park, is reported to have been badly injured, an dtow of his friends v.ho saw him doubt If he Is alive. Fireman Patrick Driscoll of Knglne 31. the fireboat, stationed at the park, wa salso among those reported badly injured. .Mrs Tetrina Mercurlo, who was in buildings, were In this direction. After 1 o'clock It was Btated that In the ; her parlor at 492 Commercial st, di-tipplng over of the fireboat quarters : rectly opposite North End Park, was Jumped to Rescue Injured The police and firemen and assistants from various city departments soon organized a movement to straighten things out. The very first effort was to get into the wrecked buildings and to rescue those who were pinned down by heavy planks, girders or other debris and to place than) in the arriving ambulances, patrol wagons, fire apparatus or any pther conveyance that could be procured. Search in the distilling plant's buildings and the wrecked buildings of tlw Public Works Department resulted In the finding of the dead, who were caught in the general smash that followed the explosion. As fast as nossible the police and firemen SOUTH BOSTON I and voluntary workers extricated the WOMAN CHARGED WITH ; bodies of the dead from the wreck-MURDERING HUSBAND age, tenderly placed them on blan kets or long boards and removed them to the cleared area, whence they were removed to the hospitals or morgues to await identification. it was believed that one of the mem hers of the crew, George I-eahy, an engineer, was missing. One of the buildings wrecked was a dwelling In which it was said there was a woman about 80 years of age. X bed near which she was was tipped completely over, pinning her underneath. When she was finally dragged out it was found that she had no broken bones. She was taken to the hospital for observation, owing to her age. Police were hurried to the scene from all the downtown stations and from Charlestown and East Boston. The East Boston Relief Hospital ambulances were rushed over, and the Massachusetts General Hospital and the City Hospital also sent ambulances. fun 1 1 mini Ir.iiM lie Klrat FCwSi louth of hr liuxlmnd. 8li refuses to H very much to tlm point.

Palmer, an accountant at the electric freight plant, said that he heard the low rumble caused by the explosion just about 12:30 p m. He looked out of the window, felt the building which he was in rocking, and at a glance saw that something dreadful had happened. Within a minute huge streams of molasses began to run through the various streets and passageways, filling every section of the area for two blocks. People were impeded from rushing to the aid of the injured or dying, and for the moment there was a hush, followed by such activity as one could scarcely realize, so quickly did every one seem to act in order to render aid. ithorwn to the floor of the room with 1 he rthree children, one of them a I baby. She was not seriously in-j jured. Fred C. Lewis Missing Fred C. Lewis, a general freight 1 agent of the Bay State Street Rail-' way, was walking through the yard ; of the railway company in the vicinity of freight house No. 2. He has i not been seen since. It Is believed j that he came from South Framing-': ham. A little girl, judging from her size about 12 years old, was found dead under several empty molasses barrels and was taken to the morgue. It is thought that she had been picking up wood in the yard. Joseph Hiller of 110 Chestnut st, Chelsea, employed by the Bay State, was just returning from lunch when the explosion occurred. He dragged three injured men to a place of safety and saw that they were sent to the hospital. Two of the men were Israel Cashin and Joseph Hinck- j ley. The other is not known, j A number of girls in the office of jthe Bay State at the time were con-Jsiderably shaken up and were re- moved by the firemen. Although a woman matron at North . End Park was reported killed, it was learned from Mr Shea's office that j there is no woman matron employed I there in the Winter season.

Word was telephoned immediately to Fire Headquarters and a call for assisting apparatus was hurriedly sent out, which was responded to quickly and proved one of the most valuable aids that came within the first few minutes The station of the so-called electric freight was close by and this building, too, was partly wrecked. The building shook and then portions of it began to settle, flnally some of the walls collapsing. The forewarning here, however, was so long that some of the people within had the chance to get away. However, a few were hurt. GrapeNuts combines great food values with economy and excellent flavor No sugar required Cargo Off the Miliere I It is estimated that nearly 2.000,000 (.allons of molasses were in the tank at the time of the explosion. Some i PUN gallons of this had been placed in the tank from the steam- , ship Miliere. which had unloaded at j the Coppg Hill Wharf only a day or twojago. The heavy, thick fluid began pouring out in all directions and in a few minutes the streets were perfect ricra, which impeded progress of any conveyance and made it very difficult to get about.

Horse Completely Covered When the explosion occured there was a great splashof the molasses in all directions and teams and persons who happened to be near the tank were completely submerged in it. One horse and its driver were completely covered, but crawled out and hurried away from the scene. The Purity Distilling Company, in whose plant the tank was located, is said to be a subsidiary of the United States Industrial Alcohol Company. The cause of the explosion probably was due to gases which had not escaped through the vents that are usually provided in huge receptacles of this character. Miss Florence F. McDonald of 3 Menloes av, Lynn, employed in the freight office of the Bay State Railway, was reported missing after the explosion. She had left the office to go to lunch and is believed she may have been neaf the big tantk when it exploded. Search for her was made in the ruins of the explosion. Antonio Tianci, or Gianci, 5 years old; his brother, Albert, of 11 years, and their mother were injured while in their home at 384 Commercial st. They were taken to the Relief Station. Four Bodies at Morgue At 2:30 this afternoon there were four ladies at the Northern District Mortuary on North Gove st. One of these bodies was that of a boy and another was supposed to be that of a woman, but all of the bodies were covered so thickly with molasses that the morgue authorities had found nothing that couid positively identify any of them. Medical Examiner George Burgest; Magrath, who is in charge of the district in which the explosion happened, was busy at the scene of the explosion and at the mortuary. Woman Crushed in Home The body of Mrs Clougherty, mother of Martin Clougherty, of 6 Copps Hill terrace, was found beneath a pile of boards and timbers about 2:20 this afternoon. Mrs Clougherty was in the house when the explosion occurred, and was apparently buried in the debris when the building collapsed from concussion. An unknown girl is reported to have been found dead in front of the Bay State Street Railway freight ! offices on the old gashouse wharf j near Charlestown Bridge. A sailor whose last name is report- Hospital. Moto ambulances were being used to transfer the men and women who had been given first aid and emergency treatment. Some of them, while not badly injured, will have to stay at the hospital a few days. RELIEF HOSPITAL FORCE GIVEN A GREAT TASK i At the Haymarket Relief Station a i great crowd gathered as ambulances, express wagons anu urays rusnea up with the molasses-coated victims swathed in robes and blankets. The hospital force was swamped and the conveyances with victims waited in line on Canal st to get into the ambulance entrance at the Side of the hospital. Among those being treated at the Relief Hospital in Haymarket sq are Russell McLean of 42 Janet st, Wa-verley; ' Peter Grant, John Severlict, John Noone and Charles Whitney. i ed to be Kelliher. and who is said , to live in Lewiston. Me, was on Fiske ; Wharf, about 20 feet away, and wets j knocked semiconscious. His mouth , was filled with molasses and his face and body and clothing were covered i with the. molasses. He was taken to the Chelsea Marine Hospital for ! treatment. George Layhe, engineer of Engine j 31, one of the fireboats, is missing, j He was 6een just before the explo-! sion. but when the roll was called he was not found. He lived at 401 Saratoga st. East Boston. John L.'s Brother Killed J John Hoy, subforeman of the Pav- Horse Killed on Street McLean was walking along Commercial st, underneath the Elevated structure, when the explosion occurred. He was thrown on his hands and face and up against a brick wall. Whitney was driving a horse along Commercial st and was thrown from his wagon. The horse was killed. About 50 sailors who were passing along the street near the Relief Station and doctors from the U. S. S. Rockport, who were near the hospital, hurried into the Relief Station and gave what assistance they could, the bluejackets acting as hospital orderlies. Several army surgeons also gave aid. Rev Fr Weiss, S. J., from St Mary's Catholic Church, North End, hurried to the hospital and began administering the last rites of the church to the injured. At 1:45 this afternoon there was only one dead body at the Relief Station. The man's identity had not been established at that time. GAS IN TANK PROBABLY CAUSED THE EXPLOSION The crew of the U. S. S. nautical training ship Nantucket of more than 100 men were on the scene soon after the accident and were posted with rifles to keep the crowd back on Commercial st and near the North End Park. Capt Matthew Daly of Police Station 1 also reached the scene shortly after the explosion and is taking charge of a big squad of police officers. Police Commissioner E. U. Curtis and Supt of Poliee Michael H. Crowley arrived at 1:40 p m to assist in the work. A soldier, who was but a short distance from the spot at the time of the explosion, said that he heard no sound of an explosion, but that the big molasses tank simply seemed to collapse. The jar, he said, however, was felt for a distance of about 50 feet. Three houses in the yard collapsed when the explosion took place. Two autos, standing about 30 feet from the spot, were thrown against lamp posts, breaking the posts off and smashing the machines badly. Shortly after the explosion two "shuttle" Elevated trains between the North and South Stations coming from opposite directions were flagged and stopped a short distance Lorn the break in the Elevated structure which was caused by the explosion. Covered With Molasses The Are alarm was rung In by Supt m From Alaska to the Gulf MAYO All over this broad land, staunch out -o' -doors men are glad that they can get Mayo underwear again. Men who need real underwear protection men who've always insisted on Mayo know that Mayo's 10-rib-to-the inch (as against the usual 8) mean more warmth, more wear, more comfort, greater freedom of movement. Mayo production is rapidly coming back to normal. An immense new mill at Mt. Airy, N. C, is adding hundreds of dozens of Mayo suits a week to the regular output. So here is our promise to wearers, dealers and jobbers. By next fall you can get all the Mayo you want. You may get your warm Mayo suit even now. Ask your dealer. Anyhow remember Mayo.

Mr Lawton also notified Police Headquarters and also sent word to the hospitals when he realized the extent of the explosion. Mrs Elizabeth O'Brien, mother of former president of the old Boston Common Council, Christopher O'Brien, who was working in the building in the yard of the paving division of the Public Works Department, near by, was thrown against the side of the building and sustained a number of bad cuts and a gash on her face, which were treated by a physician. The Red Cross and all the available army ambulances were being rushed to the scene by 1:40 this afternoon and at 1:45 more than a score of ambulances filled with injured were on their way to the hospitals. The fact that the injured were covered with the molasses from the big tank made it very difficult to identify them. In some cases the clothing and faces and all exposed parts of their bodies were coated over with the molasses. Chairman James B. Shea of the Boston Park and Recreation Department, on learning of the accident, immediately ordered all the available foremen and laborers in the department to report at once to the scene with axes, shovels and other tools to start clearing away the debris.

Gas Formed in Tank Deputy Commissioner Sullivan of the Paving Division of the Public Works Department also gave orders to have all available men report at once to the scene with tools and implements to work at the scene of the explosion. Chief McDonough of the Fire Department, at 1:55 this afternoon, stated to a Globe man that about 2,-000,000 gallons of molasses were stored in the big tank. He gave his opinion, from what information he had received up to that time, that this gas caused the collapse and the explosion which accompanied it. The collapse or bursting of the tank was preceded by a rumbling sound lasting over one and a half minutes. At 1:55 this afternoon a telephone call was received from Const'tutlon Wharf at the North End Park yard asking for ambulances to take away three men who were reported to have been badly injured. One of the men was said to be fatally injured, if not dying at the time. Woman Buried in Debris The home of Martin Clougherty, an old-time boxing referee, located at the junction of Commercial and Charter sts, was demolished by the force of the explosion. Mr Clougherty and his two children, a boy and a girl, were out of the house at the time, the children at play and Mr Clougherty on the street nearby. Mary Doherty, who was the occupant of a house on the back of Charter st located about 60 feet from the explosion, was buried beneath the debris of her dwelling house, a small wooden frame affair.
