Spain Nevertheless our government sioned Herr von the German ambassador to Spain to inform the Madrid government that Germany was not in a position to prevent the war After that several attempts were

together to act upon the result The subcommittee was in session all afternoon and at adjourned for a night session without having arrived at satisfactory conclusions As understood the operators in the meeting of the joint scale committee have set their faces sturdily against the 10 per cent increase and the ran mine and differential propositions and have openly announced they would not recede from this position The operators will as a compromise agree to the price for mining coal now In force for another year and will grant the demand for an open powder market On the other hand the miners as

bruises by but whose names have not been reported Only one of the bodies ot the that of little Lena 1 has been recovered All thai is known oF the fate of the other twelve reported dead is that they are thought to have the most of them are known to have in the demolished houses and since the explosion no trace of them has been found The cause of the explosion is un- known and it has not yet been mined whether it was sewer gas or illuminating gas Mams filled with the latter were instantly ablaza after the explosion and a succession of sions followed the flames shooting up through the manholes in the street It will be difficult to ascertain whether the illuminating gas exploded or er the mains were broken by tlie ex- plosion of sower gas Many people living in the vicinity be- lieve that the first explosion was in a main at Twenty-second street and Archer avenue Two other explosions of gas followed so quickly that it was hard to guish them First to explode was a main at Twenty-second street and Archer avenue Then the manhole half a block south on Archer was thrown into the air by a lourt Flames leaped and roared from the hole The lire spread below the street and smaller manholes were blown into from the first gas shot high into the air and reached with the aid of the wind the Trostle six the and is little doubt that all the eight of the family were killed The three other people who are said to be dead are supposed to be tomers in the meat market at the time of the explosion The direct cause of the explosion is not yet known but all indications show that it was due to escaping in the basement of the Trostle The explosion came an in- warning There was a Hash a roar and a cloud of dust and shattered timbers where the house had stood On both sides of Archer avenue be- tween Twenty-second and third streets every pane of glass was blown out and a number of the dents in the damaged suffered slight injuries from flying glass the Trostle building on the west at 374 Twenty-second street was a two-story frame building in which John McLeod had a saloon It ished in the same second as the meat market It was reported that one or two people were killed here but the story coulO not be substantiated In tho ruins of the buildings pied by Trostle and McLeod flames burned so that even though the inmates had not been killed by the first force of the explosion they must have met a quick death by fire Clone to the Trostle building stood the People s hospital a small affair which had but a few patients The building was ly wrecked and every window in it blown out but none of the patients was injured One of hospital attendants slight cuts caused by glaas The patients were hastily re- moved to safer quarters in the by the firemen SIV WERE Corrected of the of the

enveloped the structure With a roar the bui d- ine collapsed and the occupants with one exception were carried with it to eag building a two-story structure tip the next building was wrapped in flames and then an- other structure caught fire Kloek It seemed that the whole hiock would be wiped out before the firemen could bring the blaze under control A fire wall of a brick at the corner of Archer
