The writer reached the terrible scene about ten hours after the great disaster to witness the wreckage and turmoil of what on ¬ ly a few hours before was a thriv- ¬ ing prosperous little city every body on the hustle andeverything going well bnt alas almost in the twinkle of an eve was reduced to ruins such as could almost be compared to that of the great San Francisco disaster The Kentucky side was almost total wreck while the large brick structures on the Tennessee side were either de stoyed or so badly damaged that they were rendered unsafe for oc cupancy Just dhow the accident occurred is a question that HO one has been able to solve as there is no one who was present left to tell the story However two possible causes have been assigned one that Mr Rogers one of the victims was shooting at a target on the car which contained the dynamite and another is that a car loaded with pig iron was pushed against the car so heavily as to cause the ex- ¬ plosion but this is o speculation as no one can state positively that either took place The arguement has been presented by some that it was caused by spontaneous com ¬ bustion the exact cause we will probably never know On the spot where stood the car a whole was dug in the ground more than thirty feet in diameter and about thirty live feet deep It is a miracle that more people did not lose their lives than did Work
