EXPLOSION ON THE BIRMINGHAM WATERWORKS. F 1 V E M E N I N J U R E D. A- terrible accident happened on Thursday after- noon in the BWdfa. Tunnel, near Knighton, to men employed on the Birmingham Waterworks. The disaster is supposed to have been caused by the accidental explosion of a shot. The men went to work on the six o'clock shift, and under other cir- cumstances would have left at two. The tunnel is pierced to the extent of three-quarters of a mile. About noon a loud and unexpected explosion was heard, and at the farther end five men were found on the ground. Two of them are reported as very seriously injured, and the other three slight. All the men are blinded. The worst cases are those of James Farley and John Morgan. The former has his hand and arm blown off, and both are terribly injured about the body. Dr. Hardman and Dr. Graves, of Knighton, wore summoned by telephone and rendered every possible assistance to the sufferers, who had been removed from the tunnel and taken to their homes. Ijttle hope is enter- tained of Farley s life. A coroner's jury to-day found that Major- General George Forbes Hogg, C.B., who dropped dead in Ludgate Hill Railway Station on Wednes- day evening, succumbed suddenly to heart disease.
