Workers Hurt in Accident at Lowell, Arizona, Reported Recovering

El Pas, Jan. 6. - Advices from Lowell, Ariz., today are to the effect that the damage done to the town by the explosion of the Denn-Arizona company's magazine containing 8,700 pounds of dynamite will not be less than $30,000, while the damage to the company's property is estimated outside of the value of the explosives destroyed at $10,000. Where the magazine stood is now a hole in the ground sixty feet deep. Of the injured all are reported as improving. Foreman Joe Collio, whose skull was fractured, it is said, will recover. That many lives were not lost is marvelous, as there were over one hundred men at work within a radius of 100 feet.
