FRIGHTFUL EXPLOSION OF /.

Maihiiii Nov. «i. The governor of
the province of Santander, the mayor
und muiiy ofilcials of the city of San-
tander. all the members of the fire de-
partment of the place and 1.0 Hi citi-
zens were blown to attoins or burned
to death by an explosion of dynumite j
and the fire which followed there last ■
night while the whole town was laid ,
waste.
The Calx) Machichaco, a Spanish j
steamship belonging to Itilboa, caught
fire at about I o'clock Friday after-
noon while the steamer was along the j
quay discharging part of her cargo. |
hich comprised nearly 2,000 tons of
merchandise, though the main part of <
this cargo wan iron ore and a number j
of sacks of flour, barrels of wine, many
cases of petroleum und over .100 cases
of dynamite, of which only twentv ,
cases were declared on the steamer's
manifest The remaining 4H0 cases
of dynamite were contraband and, to
the shame of the shippers of this con-
traband dynamite, it has caused im-
mense loss of life and vast damage to
property.
leading municipal authorities head-
ed the nremen and guards in the
effort to save the steamer. The
provincial governor, who was one of
the first to reach the spot.displayed the
greatest activity in directing the >per-
atious, and up>n learning that the
ship's manifest showed that there
were twenty eases of dynamite on
board, the firemen were directed to
assist the crew in bringing this quan-
tity of explosive material ashore.
This was done in safety. It was be-
lieved no more dynamite remained on
board and a tug which had been sum-
moned to the spot was ordered to tow
the burning vessel out into the bay in
order that the dames might not com-
municate to the wharf and to adjoin-
ing property, which was of a decided- 1
ly combustible nature.
At about 4:30 p m. a detonation on
board showed, as it afterwards turned j
out, that the boilers had burst, aud
soon after there was another terrible j
detonation heard. The steamer seemed :
to open in half, sending a blaze of tire
skyward, over which a crown of smoke
rested for several minutes. The re- j
port was of such awful intensity that
it shook the earth for miles around, i
caused houses to totter, smashed every !
window pane within the radius of a
rifle shot, tilled the air with a mass of
flying iron, burning wood, blackened
timbers and scorched beams, which
coon after fell, a death dealing hail,
upon the neighboring houses, scatter-
ing death and destruction wherever it
crushed downward.
The scene following the blowing up
of the steamer is almost indescribable,
and tho effect of the explosion of
those 4*0 cases will hardly be be-
lie veil
The power of the explosion shot
tons of iron into the air, where it min-
gled with the burning fragments of
the st> amship, tug and wooden quay,
as well us the mangled bodies of hun-
dreds of unfortunate people who were
hurled upward at the same time, and
the failing of this horrible mass can
bo better imagined than described.
On adjoining buildings, tottering with
wreckage,fell a shower of iron.follow-
ed by huge pieces of wood and the re-
mains of human bodies, and above all
dropped flaming splinters which set
tire to hundreds of buildings, causing
a scene of panic similar, one would
imagine, to the one which would have
succeeded the bursting forth of a vol-
cano at the water's edge.
The force of the exploding dyna-
mite caused such a concussion that in
addition to shaking hundredsof build-
ings off their foundations, it actually
sank a small craft in the harbor, in
addition to setting tire to a large num-
ber of other vessels and starting fires
upon several of the larger ships, in-
cluding the Alfonso Nil, which vessel
caught tiro and burned so fiercely that
forty of her crew lost their lives ou
board of her.
The quay promenade close to the
scene oi the explosion presented the
most sickening sight ever witnessed
Mangled and blackened corpses were
scattered here and there or were in
heaps in mauy cases upon the wounded
ami dying, whose fearful shrieks of
agony tilled the air and struck terror
into the hearts of those who, after a
time, summoned suflicient courage to
venture near the carnage ground.
Over 100 people are said to have
been precipitated into tho sea by the
explosion and there, beneath this hail
of iron and wood, they met death with
the crews of the unfortunate steamer
aud tugboat which was about to tow
her into the bay.
The whole country is indignant at
the criminal conduct of the crew of
the steamer as well as the criminality
of those who shipped the contraband
480 cases of dynamite, aud the general
opinion is the government must take
immediate steps to punish the people
who shipped the dynamite.
The explosion of the dynamite lifted
the sea up into the air like a water-
spout. mingling enormous quantities
of mud and stones with the wreckage
and hurling them for a great distance
The number of people who have lost
their senses through the explosion is
very great, an,I it is openly asserted
hundreds of people have completely
lost their minds and will have to be
confined in asylums for the remainder
of their lives.
