entombed miners can not be rescued now A furious flre has sealed their fate and if their dead bodies escape the hungry flames the pil fering rats that infest the mines will have gnawed them beyond recognition Death never came to men in a more revolting form and affliction never full heavier on the bereaved Yesterday WHS an nwfnl day yet eveia a greater disaster threatens A flre fierce as a whirlwind is raging for 2000 feet clown in the yawning mouth of the Hill Farm mine A Irlfirlitfiil Explosion 1oritfible Deadly gas bos generated back of the flames and the ponderous hill into which the Hill Farm the Ferguson and the Ma honing pits are driven Is a mighty tnaga sine fairly pregnant with death The lightest stroke of a miners pick would ex plode it and the effect of such an explo sion would be awful to contemplate The rescuing party has been withdrawn from the face of the Mahoning pit A strong guard has been placed at tho mouth of the Ferguson mines to keep out the impa tient restless miners who would rescue the unfortunates on their own account The flames at the Hill Farm mines are hot enough to drive away invaders The Outbreak of the IJro Fiend Fire broke from the mouth of the Hill Farm pit shortly after 9 oclock last night It followed promptly after the drill entered the burning mine For two hours before the flames burst out huge billows of black dense and dead ly rolled over each other into the nir and drifted upward forming a ponderous monument of mourning to the dead in Blde A rumbling rushing sound like a swiftly moving train through a tunnel preceded the flames Secretary Watchorn Superintendent Hill nnd the United Press reporter wore at the pits mouth await ing the outbreak To the experts the smoke indicated approaching flre for half an hour before its arrival and its coming could be heard long before the flre reached the pits mouth It could be seen licking up the timbers iu the mine and the steady stream of water which rippled down tho slope seemed only to Inspire and encourage to wilder efforts the nngry fiend A Scene ot Awftil Grandeur It was indeed an awful sight and when with a brilliant flash the great column of smoke was ignited the heavens seemed aflame Fantastic figures of flre darted hither nnd thither chasing each other to the clouds and burning a huge hole through tho gltjvmi f e rounding country was lighted up guiding excited ucrvous Those who nan been watching at the ivlo lioning mine hurried over the hill to the tire The people of Dunbar who could see the reddened heavens from the village rushed about in confusion fearful that another calamity had occurred The Keretived Families The families of tho entombed miners who have waited and watched until their grief has become doadtned are uioused and their suffering aud distress come to them anew Neighbors gathered in each stricken home and while they comforted the living they prayed for tho dead aud while they watched tho fire they seemed mentally to bury their loved ones Heroic tjioor in Vain The heading in the Hill Farm mine was not accompanied with accident James Baruhill a practical miuer guided the drill and when he touched the objective point he secured a bag full of the air and then the rescuing party was ordered out of the pit Inspectors Keighley Blick and Evans then examined the face of the mine uftor which they left the place to consult They decided that iny attempt to break through the dividing wall might be ac companied by accident Gone to Face Death The conference lasted for nearly an hour Every possible plan of rescue was discussed but none of them accepted Fi mUiy Inspectors Louttit Keighley Secre tary Watchorn Master Workman Ker foot and Manager Hill of the Furnace company decided to face death itself that the entombed men may be rescued They decided to go to the face and together dig through There were eleven feet of coal to dig or about two hours work They were all provided with appliances for their safety but they carried their lives In their hands and everybody about the pit bade them goodbye aud wished for their safe return A Hitter Feeling Abroad The suspension of work just when the unfortunate miners are almost within reach has been a great disappointment hora and has still further enraged the peo ple The false reports sent out daily by the mine inspectors bad led them to hope against themselves and when the fire broke out last night the feeling was in tensely bitter against those whom they held responsible for the delay THE TRAINS ARE RUNNING End of the Strike an tlio Illinois Central Coin promise CHICAGO June trains on the Illinois Central railway began running again yesterday afternoon and matters are altitudinous once iijcore The men held a long meeting dinner yester day during which the lost proposition of the railway was discussed and concluded to accept it Those on the inside say the decision would have been the other way had it not been for tho fact that the men were advised that under the circumstances they would not receive the moral or flnau ciil support of the greatlabor organiza tions of the Compromise It all hinged on Mr Bussel and in his case the company receded somewhat He will not be permitted to directly dis charge any of the men all matters of that kind must be attended to by his subordin ates Also the two men who resigned are to go back to their places Cost of the Amusement The cost of the strike to the Illinois Cen tral railroad has been in the neighborhood of On the jirsfc day they lost 4300000 und the balance on an average of almost 100OOU a daj The strike lasted five days the passenger traffic not being stopped until the second day THE WORLDS FAIR PRESIDENT ExSenator Palmer 1 Miiniinously Chosen Ity the Commissioners CHICAGO June was almost a fore gone conclusion as to who the state com missioners oftheWorlds fair would choose for their chairman when they met yester day Mr Depew was absolutely out of tho race nnd

Packages Measure WASHINGTON Crrr June flood of eloquence on the national ejection law was continued yesterday In the house two of the most interesting speeches being those of Vaux ot Pennsylvania Randalls successor and Kennedy of Ohio Haugen of Wisconsin opened the debate for the bill saying that it was not local in its ap plication but general and that southern objection to it was an insult to the south He referred to the movement in that sec tion for a property qualification for voters it being operdy advocated because It would disfranchise the negro and quoted Judge Gate a Democrat from Arkansas and a contestant for a seat in the house who had justified the outlawry by mob violence of certain negroes who had been elected to local offices on the ground that they were not property holders A niaat at Col Dudley Covert of New York said the bill was evidence of the distrust of the Repub licans of a government of and for the peo ple After referring to Speaker Reeds speech to the Pittsburg Americus club in which he discussed the southern ques tion and intimating that the speech was delivered to have an effect on the house Covert quoted Reed as speaking ofan emer gency that confronted us The Repub lican party said Covert was used to meeting emergencies They had met them in Indiana when they sent in Dor sey with his money aud Dudley with his floaters in blocks of five and Quay the archangel of the party This bill was in tended to undo the work of the fathers of the constitution The bill would revive race prejudice which now was extinct In Gods name as lovers of the country he besought the house not to seek to revive the prejudice now Applause Flower Objects to the Kxpense Flower said the bill stood preeminent as a reckless and undemocratic measure The agitation for a reform ballot he at tributed to the futfryings blocks of five etc of the last election and he said that in view of these the Republican party haJ chosen u most inappropriate time to enact this law He spoke of tlie prospect ive expenses under new local election laws and saiii that a single election in New York now ivoalcl cost for ballots alone He thought the people who would ubject themselves to this burden could le as safely relied upon to conduct fair lections as could irresponsible federal officials Fair Elections Wortli Any Cost Srayscr of Ohio said the measure was sonservative and not radical The cost of xecnting it had been exaggerated but iir elections were well worth any cost The south had been let alone for fifteen to work out iti own destiny He did leeking to work out the salvation of the icrth on the same line Vaux Interprets tlie Constitution Vanx of Pennsylvania said that the bill irtually overturned the constitution and lestroyed our form of government The constitutional meaning of the phrase the ime place and manner was that the ower of congress was limited to prescrib ng the form of choosing representatives mcl that when the election itself began its authority ceased The manner of hold ng and the holding of tho election were entirely distinct and separate and the iower of congress ceased with the former A Threat of Revolution He said that this bill would drag the circuit court judges into the din and filth of partisan politics He assured the Re publicans that the Democrats of the north would see that Maine was one of the flrst places where the law was carried out no matter what the cost He warned the other side tbat as our forefathers had sep arated from Great Britain because they did not believe in taxation without repre sentation so the time might come when legislation depriving the people of repre sentation would drive them to another re volt for the same principle Loud ap plause on the Democratic side Kennedys Solution of the Problem Kennedy of Ohio said it was idle to say that the majority had ruled iu this coun try All pretence that Grover Cleveland wns elected president by a majority was subject to the further statement that large numbers of qualified voters were not permitted to vote against him He charged that at least thirty of the southern mem bers were here because the blacks were counted in the census of 1880 When the apportionment wns made under the new census that provision of the constitution which required a reduction of representa tion in the case of states which permitted the rights of citizens to vote to be unlaw fully abridged should be put into execu tion in the southern states THE ORIGINAL PACKAGE BILL Report of the House Committee on the Measure They Propose WisniSGTOX CITT June re port of the house committee on the judici ary on its substitute for the senate bill to prohibit the importation of liquors in original packages into a state in viola tion of state laws has been prepared by Reed of Iowa The report says In the opinion of your committee all property which has been imported into a state and kept for sale there ought to be subject for all purposes to the jurisdiction of the stats and all persons who would engage in traffic within a state ought to be sub ject to such rules as it may enact for the regulation ot that traffic The states are proper judges of the needs of their OWE citizens and they ought to be free to en act and enf such laws as they may deem best adapted to their situation and best calculated to enhance the prosperity auii happiness of their people The Can HRTIJ His Snifter When a nonresident imports his wares into the state and there engages in traffic it is but just that he should be subjected to the same restrictions that govern the of the state who would engage in a like traffic And this would be the effect of the bili if amended as recommended by the committee It woold in no manner interfere with the right of a citizen of a state to purchase abroad any article of commerce which he might desire for hit own use and nave the same transported and delivered to Mm at his place of resi dence The states wonli have no power to prevent the importation of any article of commerce nor to obstruct the trans portation at commerce through their ter ritories ercept in the necessary enforce ment of their health laws Adams of D ITie Admission Bill Paued by House Proceedings WisnrxijTOS CITT June The sen ate yesterday continued the discussion of the Wyoming statehood bill after attend ing to some

bill was ad vocated by Haugen of Wisconsin and Smy 5er and Kennedy of Ohio and opposed by Covert and Flower of New York and Vaux of Pennsylvania The conference report on the legislative appropriation
