For four hour* nothin” con let he done, hut •t 7 o’clot;k a large party of reecuem eh fared the slope and commenced work upon the cave, beyond where three men were found Thursday night. They soon broke through and rushed into the cham her beyond, where in the semi darkness they Mumbled pver yielding bodies A close seam h revealed six blackened corpses near the opening, none of them recognixa hie Further along at various places were found thirteen oilier bodies, all more or lea* burned, but none of them could be recognized The sight was so horrible that three of the rescuer* fainted away. A scene ensued about the mouth of the slope which will never lie forgotten by those who witnessed it when the news of the ttndiug of the liodie* became known to thoer in the vicinity. A strong guard of men held back the women who pressed forworn! madly to enter til* mine In a short time four men appeared bearing a body en a stretcher. The women tore away the blanket, but saw only charred and blackened remains. Other bodies were brought out as fast ms possible and at noon all bat five of those who were iu the mine when the enve-in occurred had been found. These ignites were conveyed in atHhiilHiire* to undertaking rooms and prepared for burial. ’The excitement was intense and the street* in the vicinity of the morgue were completely blocked with people, many of whom came from other towns. The scene* of the entire morning In the town have never been equalled in the pitiful spectacles presented since the great Avondale disaster many years ago when over IOU miners were burned to death. A guard of Kpecial policemen is found none* nary to keep the preasing crowd away from the morctt*. At one o’clock two more I xxi lex had been brought out of th* mine and the search for other* was still progress! ug. The body of Michael Henry, known to tie under the immense mass of debris, may not be found for several days. John Allen, the assistant Are boas, who Ared the gas. is suffering intense agony, • While Allen’s face aud hands were but slightly burned, he inhaled the fatal afterdamp. Anthony Frayne and Robeit W. Roberts, the men retailed Thursday night, are to-day in a critical condition aod it Is be lieved both will die.

General Nuiierintendent Phillips, in an Interview vt ith a rei*t»rter of the United Press, said: “The men lost their lives through the negligence of Assistant Mine Boss Allen, who insisted on relighting his lamp iu the presence of a large volume of gas Had he nut done so. the men now dead could all have been rescued alive, aa there was a good cum ut of air passing through the chamber where the men had taken refuge after the cave in had taken place.” It is now learnt*! that it was through the daring efforts of Mine Inspector Williams that the terrible fate of the itnpria-oued miners was learned yesterday. After numerous attempt* to enter the mine through the uewly-matie opening the ofti vials concluded that the air currents must be changes! and left with their workman for this purpose. Being a matter requiring conaiderable time, Inspector Williams beearn* impatient of delay and with Abed ligo Bees of Nauti<x>ke made another attempt to pellet rat#- the workings. Gas abounded despite the stroug air current draw lug th rough the gangway and their safety lam|»s glared aud flickered in a manner telling of fearful danger. They jiersisted in their attempt*, however, and followed the gangway AMI feet. Waiting but for a moment for the air to clear they ad*auced down an incline of nearly sixty degrees HOU feet further, wheu ga* became so plentiful that they again paused Fiually, advancing MX) feet through the main gangway, they came to a large chandler, w hich proved a veritable cb.-tni-oer of horrors. By the faiut glow of their safety lamps the two meu discovered on every side of them corpses, blackened, bu rued and mangled. The mine Inspector, •toopiog with bis lamp! examined aud counted the bodi***. nineteen in all. Here lay a luau with bis head missing: there a boy st rip {ted of every shred of clothing and covered with wounds; another lay near by with cue arm and oue foot blown off. Dead bodies of mules lay crushed to a jelly by miue cars, which were scattered about iu splinters. Pausing but long enough to ascertain the numlier of the dead, the two men hurried hack to the open air ami summoned help Stretchers and sheets were brought, ropes provided, aud a rude -led built to draw the corpses up the steep incline Soon the work of removing the dead bodies was under w ay and terrible scene* were witnessed as they were brought to the surface The first lindy was that of a Hungarian, who was taken directly to his boarding house. His fellow countrymen refused to receive the body, hut it was taken in and de|H*dt*d in spite of their protests At 5 o’clock last evening it still lay there uncared for. an unsightly object. A* soon aa the company learned that the bodies were being removed, orders were given that all the dead should he taken to au undertaking establishmeut and made a* presentable as possible. They war* then la'er in the afternoon removed to their botue* and the to their proper burial. At 8 o'clock last even mg all *peratioas at the mine w*-e abandoned There were •till six men iu the fatal chamber They are Michael and John Scalley (brother*), Robert Richard*, Michael Henry.

Th* house amendment to the anti trust bill wa* reported hack to th* senate with an amendment striking out certain words aad inserting th* words “so that the rates of such corporation may not be raised above rn hat is just ami reasonable." The amendment was agreed to and a confer eooe ordered. Tho hill to permit the manufacture and printing of securities of loreign government* on paper used for I nited State* securities, wa* re po rte# I back adversely and was indefinitely postponed. The silver bill wa* then taken, up aud Mr. Sherman offered a *u l**t it Ute for the amend meat heretofore offered by him las to covering into the treasury the fund* now held for the redemption of national bauk uotea. Mr Sherman stated that the substitute wa* to the same effect but in better f%*m, having been prepared in tho treasury department. Mr. Plumb offered an amendment to the Sherman amendment to insert tile following: “Aud hereafter no funds available for the payment of th*public*debt (including such as are kept for the redemption of treasury note*) shall be retained in the treasury to tile extent of ll 10.000,UUU Mr, Sherman opposed Mr. Plumb’s amendment as putting a restraint upon the treasury department ami preventing it paying government obligations as they become due. As 01UO.OOO.0OO bad to be reserve*! for the redemption of treasury dom. it would leave only $10,000,000 for j current busineMa. Mr Plumb argued that the treasury department should have nothing whatever to do with tit* currency supply of the country. The secretary seemed to think himself the keystone, the linchpin of th# financial institutions of the country. Tho bolding of money io the treasury (except for the needs of the government itself) which had been liefore that time in circulation wa* an eixmomic crime. He compared every secretary_ of the treasury to a hen sittiiu! on a nest of egg* ami regard-. lag tho subtraction of say of them as a mortal offense. He (Mr. Plumb; wanted, so far a* he could by hi.* vote and influence, to disassociate tho treasury #le-partment from the business of the people of the Unite#! States. He di#l not want the secretary of the treasury to be the inst rn oxen t of apeculntion in Wail street or elsewhere A* a matter affecting the aec-retary’a official good name, a* a matter affecting tile interest* of the American people, congress ought to put rn limit on the amount of money to be kept on hand in the treasury. Mr. Vest said he wa* in sympathy with the general purpose of Mr. Plumb's 2 a mend ment. but he Kuggented whether ten million* reserve w a* not too *mall. Mr. Plumb replied that he did not think that ten millions wa* the limit fixed by his statement It simply said that the total amount in the treasury, including Much amouut aa may be retained for the redemption of treasury note*, shall not exceed ffllU.OUU.OUu Mr Sherman—That la fixed by law at 01UU.UUU.OUO. The secretary ha* no die cxrtioa in the matter. Mr. Plumb—I do not think it is. The law h# not imperative. It is permissive on)y. The largest amount of treasury aute* presented for redemption in any oue year was It UUU.(JOO. and the total amount p.esented in eleven year* wa* only $J8,-000,OMO. The «iiacus*ion waa further continued by Senator* Hiscock aud Sherman Uouiing to th* di*cussiou of the silver bill itself, Mr. Sherman said: I tlo not like some of the feat ure* of the bill. I may lie driven to support it. Some of the friend* of the bill seem to have atmndoned it already. The gentleman who int roil need it seems to have abandoned the principle of it. But I will debate that further on. There are some good features in it which I like very well. lf we can agree upon some measure that will furnish to the people of the United States more money (for I think we want it) and will also tend to advance silver bullion nearer and nearer aud up to the standard of gold. I am willing to vote for such a measure But I do not purpr>se of repelling, absolutely, the idea that tie value *f the United State* notes eve# depended ll) the *!tght*»t degree OD the fa t that there wa* a reserve fund in the treasury. Mr Aldrich a^-ked Mr T»*'rall* whether bethought United State* no. e* would ha v# •ny added value if a hundred million of bond* bail lieen deposited in the treasury •s security for them. Mr. I rural!*— I do not. Mr. Aldrich—Then that would hav* been equally unnecessary a* tothe gobi reserve Absolute!? anne#-canary, Mr. Ingalls asserted. It is rn mere vague *uper*tition and nothing but that. Mi Sherman remarked in an under tone —flat money. Mr. iugall* Fiat money. Mays the senator from Ohio. There is no money in this country. It rest* on the creiiit of th* government and on it.* capacity for redemption. The silver bill went over without action. The delivery of eulogies on the late Rep-resent*ti\e Keliy of Pennsylvania was postponed until next Tuesday After a brief executive session the senate adjourned till today. NEWS KROM ABROAD. MR.

I would buy every ounce of silver produced in this country, keep it in the treasury vaults anil issue certifiestas, based upon its market value, to any extent that may be desired. And I would make them a legal tender so that they would travel all over the world, be asgoo#! as gold aud lie on a parity with gold. But this other measure which has been debated at such voluminous length, and with such fulsome nil gy which invites us into competition with ail the world in the free coinage of sitver, “I do not want auy of it in mine," to use a slang phrase. If we can adopt a measure that will make use of both gold aud *ilvcr arni keep them together at par with each other. I will vote for it. lf not, I will content myself by simply voting in the negative. The discussion wa* continued by Messr* Cockrell, Aldrich, Ingalls. Farwell, Harris and Edmund.*, chiefly on the point of the gold reserve of a hundred million* for the redemption of treasury notes. Mr. Cockrell asserting that there wa* not a particle of law on tb* statute book* requiring such a reserve and arguing that there was no necessity for it, as treasury note* were rarely offered for redemption. Mr. hklmuud* said that the treasury uotes had not been presented for redemption because the pe«M>ie knew that they could get gold for them whenever the? wanted it. D three wa* a panic and a run on the treasury, aud lf there wa* no reserve to meet it, the treasury would fail, just as a bank would. Mr. Cockrell, in the course of his remarks, referred to the Mum* necessary for pensions, and said that if the house bill be-I tne a law the surplus would be wiped out aud the revenues of the government would have to be Increased. He admitted that a reserve fund of 050.000,000 might be ne#e»aiary for the redemption of treasury not expand $70,000,000 for all other expenses Mr. Ingalls argued that for some year* after the resumption law, the gold that had been *btaloed from the sale of 4 and AH P*r cent, honda was not held in a special reserve. It had not been net aside aa a special fund until 18ft!—a year or two afterward. He mentioned that for the LOUI resulted a* follow* First race, I I 16 miles: Camilla strand. Whiten.#** 1:56.

Whether-the Democratic party was there or not, the farm Lad finally gone to the devil. (Laughter.) A* to strike*: Today all Europe wa* shaking nuder the tread of thousands and hundred* of thousand* of workingmen who celebrated their I May day by demanding more rights and privilege*. Gentlemen on the other side ; talked eloquently almut free coal, iron and salt. Tit# Republican* saki there were other articles of prime necessity—free tea, free coffee, free sugar, j Mr. Coleman of Ism tai a na—There is one on thi. ^ide who does not say free sugar (laughter.) I Mr. Greeuhalge-—^That may be, aud that is one of the gentlemen I wish to appeal to in this spirit of compromise aud mutual concession. Mr. Mill* of Texas wa* glad to hear his friend (Mr. McKinley) revise hi* speech of two year* ago, iu which h* characterized the then {lending bill as a free trade measure. The high duties on the glassware schedule <»f that bill did not meet bis (Mr. Mills’) view. He hail been forced to accept them. Hi* friend was 1 placed in the same position in regard to hi* bill. He (Mr. McKinley) had put a protection on hides in his bill; and yet he had been compelled to take a free trade position aud put hide* on the free list. Air McKinley’s amendment wa* adopted. Mr. .McKinley then offered a series of amendment*, many of them unimportant, which were all adopted. The duty on sugar of milk wa* redu<-ed from IO ta 8 ceuts a pound. A rebate was provided of duties on ii Hinnied salt used in curing meat for ex port at ion. The duty on yarn made of jute wa* increased from 80to85 per cent, ad valorem. Binding twine compose#} of manilla, jute or sisal grass wa* taken from the clause imposing a duty of 1)4 cent* a pound and transferred to the ljtf cents clause. The claus* relative to carpets was amended so a* to provide that carpet* made #>f jute or other vegetable material shall pay 6 cents per square yard; and mala, ri;**-* ami s#-r#-en* 8 cents. The duty on iiui <n#a exceeding UU inches in width) wa* t hanked fr#»m \% to \% ceuts per pound. The duty on bag* for grain made of burlap wa* fi xed at 2 cent* a found. Russian camel’s hair was brought under the beati of wool* of class 8. The duty of .fci per cent, at! valorem wa* placed on wools of the thirtl class and ou Russian camel’s hair *>f the thin! cia**, the value of which shall lie 18 cents or less a pound, including charges. The duty of GU per cent, is imposed on wool of the third class exceeding in value IS ceuts a pound. It is provided that on woolen aud worsted yarns, valued at not more than 30 t-eut* |**r pound, the duty shall he two and a half times the duty Imposed tm a pound of un wa-lied wool of the first class, and in addition thereto 35 per cent. ail valorem. A long debate ensued, principally devoted to a consideration of tile subject of farm mortgages. The discussion oc#»*ion-ally drifted into politic** and the house wa* kept iii confusion entirely humorous, but so great a* to elicit fr#»m the chair the remark that the re#*#*nt presence of the circus in town must hare had a detrimental effect upon members. Mr. McMillin acid reeled himself to the bill antagonizing an amendment offered by Mr. Mi Kinl-v, pro> ;»:nig that on man ufactun * of Wiiol :.ad worsted valued at not more than SO ceuts a pound, the duty per pound shall lie ti!rex* time* the duty imposed on a pound <»f uuwa*ifcd wool of the first cia**, and in addition thereto 40 lier cent, ad valorem. The amendment w a* agree*! to. Mr. McKinley offered an aj0r>ndmeut fixing the duty on Oriental and Berlin rug* at 60 cent* |**r square yard and 40 per cent. ad valorem. Mr Mansur of Missouri secured the floor and arou*#*! t he indi'Tiation of the Iowa Republican* by the statement that they hut! le-en repudiated by their people. Th* house wa* in mu uproar for a few minutes. The sjieaker said the gentleman had been taking advantage of the chair's good nature to insult the bouse and to lower hi* own standing iu hi* own estimation Mr Mansur—That may be the opinion of the chair, hut it will not he indulged in outside t»f thi* chamber.

At a few of th* sta tions be wa* compelled to speak In response to repeated calls, but bis remarks were brief and unimportant from a polit! cal point of view A* the train rolled in to Norwich a tremendous cheer went ap from the great crowd surrounding the station, and the ex premier s appearance on the platform wa* the signal for a great outburst of applause.
