TREATMENT for Wai MenuTDtpratlon eotwakav ot Uw r i ilprwekl Pa May cavein occurred yesterday near Ashley In mine 8 operated by the Leiiigli mul Wilkesbane Coal com pany by which twantyseven men were entombed in tho mine The scene of the disaster during tlie aftermoon was one of intense excitement Not only relatives of the twentyseven imprisoned miners and la borers but thousands of others were gath ercd upon the spot discussing the best methods of effecting their rescue The company took prompt acton toward liber ating the imprisoned men but things were in a chaotic condition and It was some time before order was obtuinel and intel ligent efforts made in behaif of the un fortunates Recalls a Former Disaster Tlie present cave is in the workings in No 8 of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal company immediately adjoining the mine in which the massive cave occurred twelve years ago imprisoning ten men for over a week but who were flnullly rescued alive Tlie present cave extends over a half mile square and includes a portion of the thickly settled village called Maffets Patch A large number of houses have gone down with the surface but only a few of them have been badly damaged Rescuing Parties at Worlt Volunteers were abundant when called for to go into the mine and attempt the rescue of tho imprisoned men and about 5 oclock it wus announced that one of the rescuing parties had succeeded ia breaking through one of the chambera heneath the cave It was p m however before they reached the first of the victims He was lying at the bottom of a fifty feet plane and in order to rescue him it be came necessary to lowar a miner down with 11 rope This was done and the charred and blackened form of Anthony Froyne the first victim vras hoisted to the surface He was still alive but his in juries are considered fatal Mine Full of Black Damp When the news spread that Froyne was burned a feeling of gloom came over the old miners present for they realized that there was little hope of his companions having escaped death Froyno is supposed to have wandered away from the others and while trying to find a way out caused an explosion of gas in some old chamber If this explosion extended to where tho other men were their chances of escape are very slight At 8 oclock the rescuing party had penetrated to within sight of two dead bodies but the gas was so thick that they were driven back to the surface The place is full of black damp and fur ther approach In the direction of the vic tims is impossible even with a safety lamp As it looks now very little hope is entertained that any of the men will be rescued alive Pitiable Scene nt tlie Pit Montli 9 p men entombed are nearly all married and have large families all de pendent on them for support The scene around the mouth of the pit is a heart rending one Wives anil mothers crowd closo tip to the dark opening and peer in as if their love would dispel the darkness of the fatal depths while the cries of the little ones catling for their fathers make the hnarer sick with pity The men who form the rescuing party are strangers to fear and if it is within the bounds of pos sibility to reach the men inside they will be rescued alive or their bodies restored before morning of tlio Imprisoned Men The oflkial list of those imprisoned is as follows Ellis D Williams married seven children Harry Parry married five children Owen Parry Miphael Henry married two sons Thomas C Davis mar ried eight children John Scally the sup port of u widowed mother Michael Scally Daniel Sullivan married seven children Johu Hanson single John Allen assist ant mine boss married three children taken out seriously burned at p Robert W Roberts married no children brought to the surface at 9 p m fatally Harry Jones laborer married three children Robert X Pritchard married one child Charles James married five children Anthony Froyne married one child rescued at 7 oclock badly John James mar two children John Williams mar ried six children Jonathan Williams married two children Richard Jones married two children William Edwards Hiarried two children Thomas Williams married one child Thomas Glaus married no children Owen Williams married one adopted child John Hemsey iinglo Frank Gallagher single and two Hungarians A Sad Klglit Watch The opening through which the rescuing parties entered into the gangway is on the north side of a deep wooded ravine The space in the immediate vicinity of the opening is lighted with locomotive head lights torches and lanterns that shed weird and fitful gleams of light into the yawnius cavern where squads of minerj Tabor in the hope of rescuing their tellowa Outside this small circle nil is darkness The hundreds of anxious rela tives and friends stand weeping around the lights Tiro More Kescued Alive About 9 oclock there was a shout and the crowd eagerly pressed forward Two miners were coming out bearing a limp form on a stretcher The rescued man proved to be Fire Boss John Allen He was unconscious and badly burned will probably recover It is said that Al lans lamp set fire to gas and caused an ex plosion At MS oclock Robert Roberts was brought out He is so badly burned that he can hardly recover Allen the Calamity THE Boas Allen has re covered consciousness and told of the hor ror He said thivt when the cavein came the men all threw down their tools and made for the main gangway They found that it was blocked with the debris Some of the men then fainted and sank to the ground Others jot down on their knees and prayed for deliverance Others rum maged around abandoned workings fclltjje afternoon When the careIn occurred tiere was a slight explosion bt one ot toe breasts which burned several inen He the air is bad and unless the other men are reached with 1m the neitt ten hours they must jwrish Driven fcjr the Gas At midnight the nacuinf driven oat of gancmis tfftto left their aftlttr grope around in the darkitieas they coulil accomplish nothing An effort is being 1 made to change the current of air so as to drive the gas nway from where the vici tims are supposed to be THE POPES TEMPORAL POWER A Project oil Toot to Ileclaie It la of Humoent Losnos May threatened pro mulgation of the dogma that the temporal power of the pontiff of whichbe was dei rived by the advent of Victor Emmanuel nto Rome in 1870 is essential to the comi tlete majissty of the vice regent of Christ an earth is the theme of general discussion n Roman Catholic circles on the conti nent The decision of of the 100 ishops whose views of the matter were were solicited by the pope that the nt time is opportune for the declaration it this principle evinces a position swerv ng of popular opinion Oppoiltlon of the Italian Bishops The fact that the Italian bishops op posed the proclamation is not to be evidence of their balief that the occu pant of the chair of St Peter should not be a temporal as well as a spiritual sover eign The clergy of Italy are placed in a position of such peculiar delicacy with re gard to expressions of opinion on matters touching the relations of the church acid the state that no positive declaration ol approval could bei expected from them while the laity have long since fallen into a state of apathy as regards both pope and king HASABOUBLEEDGE The Proposed Law on ing Alcoholic Liquors CASTAWAY TOOK THE PRIZE rhu

Re plies to House Put Another Brake on Tariff President Likely to Veto Free Luxuriant Feast Stopped bj the Grim Terror WASHINGTON Cur May Chi cago dressed beef men have discovered a new danger to their business It is in the proposed law empowering state legisla tures to prohibit importations of liquors which was made necessary by tha original package decision of the supreme court A H Veeder who Is Swifts attorney is here looking into the matter with other Chi cago lawyers The dressed beef butterine and oleomargarine men fear that if states are given this authorityas to intoxicating liquors they may claim it as to other pro ducts Dangerous Precedents Mot Wanted Up to this time the Chicago packers have been able to defeat in the courts all efforts on the part of states to shut out their food products and they are now anx ious that no dangerous precedents be set by congress This danger was pointed out Wednesday in the senate by Edmunds when the bill was reported from the ju diciary committee In explaining the bill Hoar said it had been made necessary by the late decision of the supreme court which holds that intoxicating Hqnor man ufactured in oni state conveyed into an other and there sold by the manufacturer or his agent is protected by the constitu tion of the United States from any regula tion or prohibition of the sale by the state law on the ground that such prohibition or regulation is an interference with the regulation of commerce between the states Edmunds Was Probably Correct The court in their opinion say that the states cannot pass such prohibitory or reg ulating statutes without the permission of congress which is understood to imply that congress may give that permission and that with that permission the states may pass any regulation or prohibitory en actment which they see fit Edmunds said the danger was that the principle would be applied to other articles of commerceand that this would a place great power in the hands of the states and Vest called atten tion to the same thing CATECHISING TELLER The Colorado Senator Bepllca to Some Pertinent Qoestlons WASHINGTON CITY May com pleted his silver speech in the senate yes terday He reiterated the old charge that the gold bugs had the world by the throat and were choking the life out of the man who owes money and that they had secured legislation in this country which had added onerthird to the national debt They wouldnpt he said surrender their advantage unless tliey had to He quoted Allison Hume and other histo the assertion that the decline o Rome wiis to be attributed to the lack of money and that tho dark ages had result ed from the same cause A Reply wltJi Several Ifn Hoar inquired whether even without the demonetization ol silver in 1878 its price would not have fallen Teller replied that if the United States had remained onthe double standard aad if the demonetization of silver in Ger many had brought down the price of sil ver and the Latin union had restricted silver on account of the effect of German silver on the market the mints of the United States would have been open im mediately to the coinage of silver and every silver owner could have taken his silver to the mint and have had it con verted Into legal tender money agaiust which there was then at least no preju dice anywhere Tlio Agricultural Interest Blair asked Teller to state in connec tion with the fall of prices in agri cultural products that there had been no relative increase in quantity Teller did make the statement and add ed that the trouble was not one of over production but of underproduction Allison asked himi to state in that tame connection that the price which the farm er obtained for his produce now would pay for as much of the things he bought aa the higher price which ho obtained formerly Teller admitted that an to ionie things which the farmer bought that was true but he added that there were some things which had not fallen and which the farm er had to pay His taxes had not fallen the interest on his mortgage had not fallen ABBREVIATED TELEGRAMS Henry Miison president ot the Mason Hamlin Organ company died Thursday at Bouton agtid 30

iff bill He offered a resolution providing that the debate in committee of the whole shall close at noon on Wednesday next and the bill be reported to the house This brought the Democrats to their teat with protests Blount declared that the announcement that only twelve days in all were to be devoted to debate had corked up a good many orators as mem ber had not thought itirorth while to prepare speeches The rule was unwise and a violent parliamentary proceeding Applause McKinley Some Precedents McKinley denied that the resolution had any purpose to stifle debate It was in tended to concentrate debate on the para graphs and provisions of the hill The re solution was not to deny to the minority freedom of debate but to deny to it the right to delay public business by obstruc tive
