The crime for which these three men Are undergoing expiation was no Ordinary one it involved a conspiracy against the British government by which through the use of dynamite a Reifen of terror was to be inaugurated throughout Canada and thousands of innocent lives sacrificed. The intervention of Fate Providence Call it what you will prevented the outrage from being successful but the failure of the plot waa not owing to. Any Lack of Zeal on the part of the human instruments employed to carry out the design. To detective John Wilson Murray is due the credit of having gathered together the evidence which shed Light on the past careers of the a dynamite evidence which proved them to be outside the rank of Ordinary criminals ibo execute desperate deeds in the Hope of financial gain placed them in tie category a of men a who would willingly Wadei through seas of blood to accomplish their political Aims. At seven of clock on the evening of april 21,1900, the Little Canadian town of Thorold lying along the waterway of the Welland can Al within easy walking distance of the Niagara Frontier was shaken to its foundation by two terrific explosions. A 1 masses of solid Rock were torn up by the Shock immense spouts of water leaped a Loti in the air. Window panes were shattered a into Minnite crystals and for a few awful seconds the firm Earth trembled As though in the throws of an earthquake. For Miles around the people terror stricken and amazed waited dumbly for the after math a descent of death and destruction who Chi would sweep them and their Homes into the Black chaos of oblivion. But it did not come tie Blind gods of Chance had averted a. Calamity almost too horrible to contemplate. One of the a a a witnesses of the explosion was miss Euphemia Constable a 16-year-old girl who lived with her parents about 300 Yards from the lock no. 24. She was going to see a Friend across the canal about 6 20 of clock and when nearing the Bridge which is by the lock caught sight of two men. Then came Trio thunderous Roar of Tho of rpt exploding charge. After the first Shock miss Constable lost consciousness and knew nothing of the second explosion both of the Valise lowered into the lock contained dynamite. They were fired by fuses and the explosions were not quite simultaneous. They broke the castings on the head Gate Tore up the Banks on Botler sides of the lock knocked people Over who were sufficiently near smashed windows and Shook the coun try roundabout. Water surged upward in huge volumes but the Gates held. The Dyn miters had blundered by lowering the dynamite into the Gate pits instead of into the Gate holes. Experts later showed that there was not sufficient resistance to the explosive matter and this fact alone prevented the dire disaster Itiat would Bave followed if the dynamite bad done Iho work planned for it and bad smashed the Gates. A a a a a a third Mari who had been seen around with them before the explosion and who was staying at the Ros-11 House at the Falls was also arrested. The third suspect gave his name As Karl Dallman and the two men first secured declared themselves to be John Nolin and John Walsh.
