She pleaded not guilty and was committed to jail witnout bail ;for further, hearing March 28th, ^ Medicine Hat, Alta., March 20.--Flve dead and eleven injured Is the toll of the worst explosion or accident of any kind that ever happened in Medicine Hat, when the buildings of the defunct Malcolm Canneries blew up yesterday afternoon about five o'clock. The building is com-uletely demolished and Is a total loss, except the storage building, which is nearby, and was only badly shaken. The buildings had not been occupied' for some time, hut owing to the cold snap, the city authorities had given permission to a number of people living,in tents to move into the building until the cold snap was over. They �were just moving In, aivi the gas had been turned on for the purpose of-heating. Evidently there was" a leakage, and one small tank caught fire in some way. ^ Caretaker McQueen, sent in a fire alarm, and the police-sergeant drove all people out of the building, and refused to allow any in but firemen and others whose duties tOok them in. But tor _ this action, the disaster would have been much worse. As it was people crowded around the building trying to see and many were caught in the crash. Fireman Rlm-mcT was cutting a hole in the floor to get tbe hose through into the basement whe-re the burning leak was, and as his axe went through the floor, the gas underneath got sufficient air to cause the explosion. A small puff was created, followed by a terrific explosion which caused the total de-molttion of the whole 'building. There was no chance for escape. Some on the outside managed to get �away, while others were struck by flying bricks. It is thought about fifteen people were inside ^ the buUdlng when, the crash Cfime. -Mostof these were quickly "'rescued. 'The 'bodies of young Green, Stewart, Bohannan and Brlari w-ere- soon i�oov6red by the small army of.rescue workers who^were at pnce on the rescue task. Rlmmer's body, however, was'not recovered until after fh'e hours' hard work.
