yesterday by an explosion of gas in the coal mines at J Fill farm ownnd by the Dunbar Furnace company and located one mile west of this place The explosion occurred at oclock in the morning The bodies of two of the unfortunates were taken out The others are still entombed in the mne where ft fierce fire is raging There is little doubt Hint all are dead Desperate efforts are in progress to clear the way to recover the bodies but so far without avail A rescu ing party of 100 men headed by Mine In spector Keigley of this district spent the afternoon In the pit but up until late last night had been able to recover only two bodies These had died from thu force of tho explosion and are badlyburnod Their features are distorted and disfigured and they could only be recognized by their clothes IJow the Culnmltr OcmiTTnil r mysoven miners wore at wort aoout 1000 feet from tho mouth of the slope when the explosion occurred Near the point at which the heading started an air had been drilled recently Gas and water had accumulated in it A miner named Patrick Korwiu penetrated this air hole six inches in diameter with his pick whereupon a strong stream of water gushed out Kerwin alarmed sounded the danger signal His assistant Patrick Hayes started hurriedly for the main en trance and had scarcely moved when the foul gas was ignited from his lump Tho explosion that followed was terrible Thrilling Bucapo of TwentySix What little air there was in the place drifted to the heading to the right of the main entrance The fire followed swiftly and before tho thirtyone men could be alarmed all hope of escape was shut off by the flames The twentysix men em ployed in the left heading were notified of the danger in time to save their lives al though theiroscape was thrilling and was accompanied by the wildest confusion At a point near where tho explosion occurred tho bodies of Daniel Sheiran fire boso and David Hayes were found They had evi dently attempted to escape through the lames Men Who Met Tholr Doom Following is a full list of tlie missing miners Joseph Brigner Richard Brig nor Milt Ferney Barney Moss Peter Eagan Robert McOuill Martin Cavaner John Cope and Andy

most dis astrous and deadly in the history of the coko regions In the Letsominsj disaster In 18H3 twentythree men lost their lives At Col J M Heeds works at this place two years oarlior live men wure killed while at the Youugstown works a year later some fourteen lives were lost This latest calamity lias unnerved the com munity aud tho inhabitants ar5 wild with excitement Thousands of people gathered at tho mouth of the mines Among them were the parents wives children and sweethearts of the unfortunates and a strong guard of police was necessary to prevent many of them mad with anguish from rushing into the deadly hole Pitiable Sights at tlio 1it Mouth Wives widowed by the horror stood about illy clad and sorefooted lulling to slaap their babes in arms Mothers wrung their hands and cried aloud for their boys while children from S to IS years of age hurried about looking into the blackened faces of the escaped miners in the hope of finding their fathers or brothers Their suffering was pitiable and while the au thorities of the company were exerting all thoir energies to recover the bodies the total absence of information regarding the fato of tho missing men made their dis tress more severe and moans and groans went xip unconsciously from many in the unhappy crowd Heading the Sacrament to tlio Unseen Night never fell OP n gloomier sceue than this Men women and children still stood about hoping against hope and painfully awfully silent Just inside the manhole holding in his hand n flickering lamp stood Father Malody with Ins prayerbook in hand reading the last sac rament to the unseen unfortunates He was not distxirbed by the excited earnest workmen who rushed hither and thither In their endeavor to get at the lost Arm fulls of hay were carried in by the man to close oT all possible escape of the fresh air Given IJpAll Kopo At midnight last night the smoke and gas from the right shaft poured up the nxaiu exit aud after trials almost bcyoud human endurance the rescuing party gave up all hopes of ever recovering their comrades bodies from that entrance and turned their attention to the Ferguson mine one and a half miles away They are now striving to penetrate from that mine but the flame and smoke balk every effort The universal and unwilling ver dict from the old miners about the shaft is that the entombed men have either been killed outright by the explosion or Inter by suffocation The Probably Suffocated The latter seems to be the more proba ble at least in part as soundings were heard from the entombed men as late as 1 oclock yesterday afternoon Theso grew weaker and weaker however and half an hour later even the most hopeful of the willing rescuers could hear nothing Itellef for ftie Siuflfcrers The officers of the furnace company have been notified of tho disaster and authorities here haue been instructed to do everything in their power to relieve the simple products which they similate bnllding The farmers of the country wlio see their products lessened in value every year by millions through sophistication and mis branding and their tablet assailed in turn with fradilent manufactured food pro ducts every

AntiAdulteration Republican Caucus Throws Out Mc Comas1 Bill Against National Capital Items WASHINGTON CITY June ad dressed the senate yesterday on the silver question He said the house bill all other bills and amendments having passed was substantially the bill proposed by the finance committee when it made its report originally with the exception that the housu had added to it a provision for redeeming in bullion and a provision relating to free coinage when silver should come to par These wore the two vital amendments made to the bill as it was originally reported from the finance committee As he hod assented to the original report he expected to vote for that report substantially as he believed it was the wisest and on the whole the best solution of the question His Opinion of tlie Amendments The bill having been referred to the finance committee for the second time the committee had reported back two amendments one striking out the section of the bill relating to the free coinage after a certain point and one inserting a provision that the act shall terminate at the expiration of ten years He would support the amendment to strike out the free coinage section but he would not support the amendment limiting the oper ation of the bill to ten years He regarded that limitation as unnecessary and as im perilling the efficiency of the bill He did not believe that the bill would last ten years or anything approaching ten years He Favora Holding tlie Bullion There were people who belioved that the coined dollars in the treasury were useless and that it would be a wise public policy to cease that coinage He for one did not ahare that belief He believed that it was just as well to continue them to the utmost limit of 4000000 a month But there was a large public opinion against that view and therefore he contended that the bullion should be left in tho treasury uncoined He believed that sooner or later and he believed very soon the United States would have to change the number of grains of silver in the dol lar and therefore the dollars now coined would be recoined Does Not Demonetize Sliver lie was willing to go on as they were go ingonnow tentatively as It with a provision for the use of silver pending ne gotiations that ought to be had for the restoration of silver on some agreed rate by the nations of the world Eustis in quired whether tho prospect of an inter national agreement for silver coinage would be promoted by tho pending law which would demonetize silver Alllsou replied that there was no demonetization of silver proposed in the pending bill Its provisbu in that rsspect was tho same as in the act of 1878 except that the pending measure provided for the monthly pur chase of more of silver than tha maximum authorized by of 1878 A Colloquy with Vest Vent commented upon a remark of Alli son as to the newborn zeal of Demo cratic senators in the cause of free coinage of silver and made a statement to show that that had always been the Democratic policy He read a resolution which he had i offered in the senate in 1879 for the com plete remonetizatkm of silver and which hud been on Allisons motion and by tha vote of a Republican majority referred to the finance committee where it ad been buried beyond resurrection was in 1870 but where was the senator from Missouri during the four years of Mr Clevelands administra tion that he did not again introduce his resolution was fighting the Republican party as usual usual but not in the same way Vest Makes an Explanation Vest remarked that if the Democratic party said nothing ou the silver ques tion in its platform of 1888 it was not be cause it had receded rorn the position which it had always held It was because President Cleveland was an eastern man a New York man who did not sympathize with the majority of his party on that question He had reason to believe now that Cleveland was better informed ou the subject and was in sympathy with the people of the great west and of tlie ma jority of the Democratic party BLAINE ON FREE SUGAR Be the Latin Americans to Tmy Something lor the Boon ACOCSTA Me June following letter from Secretary Elaine was received in this city yesterday by exMayor Coney MT DEAR Sin I have your favor of the llth inst You are in error in supposing that I am opposed to sugar being admit ted free of duty My objection is not to sucar but to the proposed method of making it free If in the pending tariff bill sugar is placed upon the free list we give to certain countries a free market for of their products while they are not asked to open their mnrkets to the free admission of a single dollar of Amer ican products AVants a Condition Attached We ought to have in exchange for sugar from certain countries a free mar ket for breadHtufts

WASHINGTON CITY Juno from the committee on agriculture and forestry made a report to the senate yes terday on the pure food bill The report gives good reasons for imposing the exe cution of the law upon the agricultural department and says that it Is estimated by a leading trade journal of the United States that 2 per of the entire food product of the country is sophisticated Taking the estimate of as the total value of the food supply consumed in the United States annually there is upon this basis of estimation a year of fraudu lent food products foisted upon consum ers The Are Complaining The committee Bays that the food pro ducers products are sophisticated and ruisbrwnded and their market for a pure food product restricted because of the sus picion of fraud which discredits the pur ity of the products subject to adulteration Both houses of congress have been del uged with petitions from the farmers or ganizations during therpresent session praying lor legislation which will compel the of hog products to form to the laws of commercial honesty They complain and Justly that the sale of compound products under the name of the genuine article is destroying B remunera tive market for their hogs by displacing millions of pounds of pure lard with arti cles of a cheaper quality sold under the same name Should Sell While eminent chemista are not agreed that the lard compounds are deleterious to health says the report there can be no dissent from the Tiew that suoh article s should be sold under thair rightful names and marketed as compounds and not as the
