A thousand pounds of blasting powder contained in fifty-pound cases en route for Tarrytown on a flat car on the New York Central Railroad exploded near that place at 11:20 yesterday morning.
Thirteen men who were riding on the car were killed outright, and twenty-two others were more or less severely injured. Ten of the killed were Italian laborers, and nearly all of the wounded were of the same nationality.
The names of only three of the killed are known. They are: McCarthy, Joux, of North Tarrytown, a timekeeper of the laborers, shocked to death and mangled. Morrierty, Frank, of Peekakill, employed as a powder monkey, shocked lo death. Smith, John, a brakeman of Sing Sing, killed by shock and blown into the water. The names of the Italians were known only to McCarthy, the dead time keeper.
