TOUNGSTOWX, O., May t0. A
mysterious explosion in the power
plant of the Republic Iron and Steel
company at noon today, brought In
stant death to four men and injuries
to eleven others. Five of the latter
were seriously hurt and it is bellev-
ied one may succumb.
Ten thousand people crowded
around the plant In the heart of the
foreign section, when heavy pieces
of machinery were blown to a quar
ter of a mile by the explosion, leading

The1 fact that the war denarlmant
has already had favorable experience
with Ashevlllo as a training cams on
a small scale, will, it Is believed, pro-
dispose xne auuionues towards lo
cating; another camp near this cltv.
There are to be sixteen regular train
ing camps established, and In addi
tion, several camps for the purpose of
naraening young men to be called to
tho colors later. It le believed that
either a training oamp or a harden
ing camp will be located hese.
Major H. X Hunt, of the regular
army, who will arrive here today.
will be shown several other sites for
the proposed camp In addition to the
I Jo acres on the BUtmore estate of
fered by Mrs. Edith Vanderbllt. One
of these places will be that wide
stretch of land from Kenllworth to
Black Mountain, admirably adapted,
it is said, for the purpose. It Is pos
sible he may be taken by the conftnlt-
tee to the famous Pink Beds, a ten-
mile plateau on the very top of the
mountains where a cannon may be
red and find no obstacle in Its path
for a distance of ten miles. Major
Summerall, of the regular army, who
once inspected this remarkable
plateau, said at the time there was
no place like It in the country, and
many otners nave agreea with mm.
Major Summerall Inspected this
site during the year following the es
tablishment of the training camp
near Orove Park Inn, in 114. This
oamp was established by Captain Van
Horn of MaJor-Oeneral Leonard
Wood's staff, and was In charge of
Captain Brown. There were 104 col
lege men at the oamp during the
summer, and a troop of regular
cavalry, while the attendance was
far less than the government had an
ticipated, still it was the second larg
est established that year. The at
tendance, however, were so disap
pointing to the war department, that
economy suggested that future camps
of this nature be established where
larger units could be handled. The
officers' training camps at Fort Ogle
thorpe and at Plattsburg were the re
sult But the war department records
reveal the interesting fact that in the
camp near Orove Park inn there was
not a single case of sickness during
the entire length of time the men
were there a most unusual showing,
it Is said. The training the young men
were subjected to was severe ana
among the long marches taken was
one to Hendersonvuie ana return.
Some of these men are In the officers'
training camps today, and some are
officers in the regular army.
The following year Major Sum
merall came to Ashevlllo for the pur'
pose of locating aa artillery camp
here. He found on the Vanderbllt es
tate, he said, a site admirably aoapt
ed for such a eamo. and when taken
to the Pink Beds be name enthusiastic
over that plateau. Major Summerall
commented on the many excellent
reasons why a camp should come here
and spoke of the remarkable health
record of the small camp established
here in 1914. . s r -
