IRON ORE PLANT DYNAMITED

BANDITS WRECK NEW MILLION DOLLAR STRUCTURE OF ERIE RAILROAD AT RANDALL.

CLEVELAND, OHIO, March 25. - Unknown vandals tonight dynamited the new iron ore handling plant of the Erie Railroad at North Randall, a suburb of Cleveland. The dynamite was used on the ore bridge of the plant, which was destroyed with an estimated loss of $300,000. The plant was only recently completed at a cost it is said of about $1,000,000, and had been in operation only a few days.

There is no clue to the miscreants and General Superintendent H. G. Dunkle, of this division of the Erie, says that blood hounds will be used in trying to run them down.
