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 ! rum.org that scores AA4 Pees. kiUgd, 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 - FXeOCVTER.
