EOME, April 23.—-The powder magazine at the fort at Pozzo Pantaleo exploded at 7 o'clock a. m., completely demolishing- the fort, killing five peasants who were in the vicinity and seriously injuring', hundreds of others. The fort was four kilometers from Rome, but the explosion, shook this city to its center. Houses rocked and trembled as though smttten with an ague, while the glass from thousands of broken windows'was hurled through the air and fell in dangerous showers to the streets. • The great cupolaosur- mounting the parliament building 1 was mashed to pieces and the surrounding streets strewn with its debris. The doors of offices and private residences were burst open by the terrific concussion and heavy articles of furniture were overturned. Many of the peopte whom the early hour -found still asleep were thrown from their beds and dashed violently upon the floors of their apartments. Panic-stricken, the bewildered people in thousands poured out upon the streets, fearing- and fully expecting- to find tha city In the thioes of a great earthquake. Confusion and terror was everywhere. Men looked, in each other's faces only to find reflected there the fear which possessed themselves. Women praying aloud, others hurrying- with their children to find refuge from an unknown danger, and still others weeping hjeterically and aimlessly wringing- their hands were met at every .corner. When the city had quieted down and an investigation had been had it was found that enormous damage had.. been done to the fort, which was filled with soldiers a few aio* meats before the explosion occurred. Fortunately the commandant heard the warning rumble and at once ordered the men to vacate the building. This was promptly done and a terrible disaster was thus averted. King Humbert, accompanied by Premier Rudini and every member of the cabinet, has gone to the scene of the disaster. A military cordon has been established at Pozzo Pantaleo and the people are forbidden, to approach the vicinity of the wrecked fort. Forty small houses in the neighborhood of the exploded magazine are entirely ruined and many more are seriously damaged. The appearance of the king in the streets on his way to Pozzo Pantaleo excited the utmost enthusiasm among the people who still thronged the thoroughfares, and exerted a decided influence in reassuring the timid. When King Humbert was seen returning from the wreck conveying some of the wounded to the hospital in his own carriage he was given an ovation all along the line of his progress. ' Two officers dangerously wounded and 120 civilians have thus far been taken to the hospitals. Every house within a radius of . a kilometer from the point of the explosion is more or less damaged. It has been ascertained that 250 tons of powder was stored in the exploded magazine. The''Vatican was not spared. The edifice was shaken and several of the historical stained glass windows of the old building were shattered. The windows in the ancient Raphael chambers and the stained glass in the royal staircase, presented to Pope Pius IX. by the king of Bavaria, were seriously injured. The interiors of many of the old churches and palaces have also suffered. HI. Ftogiesn Made by the President In Trip Through the Golden State.

The ceremonies opened with a street parade, in which all United States troops, militia, -G. A. R. posts and civic organizations in this vicinity participated. The parade ended at the city hall, where a covered platform had been erected. This platform looked 'like a tropical garden. An address of welcome was made by Gov. Markham and .Mayor Hazard. President Harrison responded and brief speeches were also made by Secretary Husk and Postmaster General Wanamaker. After the speechmaking- the president and party proceeded to the flollenbeck hotel, where flower-bedecked apartments had been reserved for them.
