DUSTBAB, June one miners were killed yesterday by an explosion of gas in the coal mines at Hill Farm, owned by the Dtrabar Furnace company, and lo- cated one mile west of this place The explosion occurred at 10 30 o'clock in the morning Tho bodies of two of the unfor- tunates were taken ont The others are still entombed in the mine, where a fierce Are la raging 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 specter Keigley of this district, spent the afternoon in the pit, bat ap to a late hour ast night had been able to rescue but two lodleo. These two men had died from the 'one of the explosion and the bodies are MMlly burned Their features are dls orted and disfigured and could only bo by their clothes Fifty-seven miners were at work about 000 feet from the mouth of the slope when the explosion occurred Near the joint at which the heading started, an air hole bad been drilled recently Gas and water had accumulated in it A miner named Patrick Kerwin penetrated this air hole, six inches m diameter, with his pick whereupon a strong stream of water gushed out Kerwin alarmed sounded he danger signal His assistant, Patrick Hayes started hurriedly for the main en ranee and had scarcely moved when the oni gas was from his lamp The xplosion that followed was terrific What little air there was in the place Irifted to the heading to the right of the main entrance The fire followed swiftly and before the thirty one men oould be ularmed all hope of escape was shut oC by he flames. The twenty six men employed n the left head were notified of the dan in time to save their lives although heir e'cupe was thrilling and was accom pan led by the wildest confusion At a pomt near where the explosion oc orred the bodies of Daniel bheiran, fin and Dand Hayes were found They had evidently attempted to escape through the flames Following is a full list of the musing miners JOSEPH BRIblEU Ki rodlirt of the country IB sophisticated. faking the estimate of four and a half illilooa of dollars an the total value ef the ood supply consumed in the Ualted States annually, there is upon this basis ot estimation a year of traoara ent food products foisted uson oonsnm rs. Dr Abbott of the Massachusetts Board of Health, asserts that la that tace as the result of the stringent food and drug inspection laws there has been a saving of 5 per cent te the people IB the tbe increased punty of food product; If the same results of deterrent legislation could prevail throughout the country the anuuafsaving to the consumer through pure food would reach the stupendous sum of a quarter of a billion dollars But there is another standpoint hardly leas vital from which the Importance of the subject presents itself That a from the side of the food proceeds whose pro- ducts are sophisticated and misbranded, acd whose market for a pure food product is restricted because of the passion for fraud which discredits the pnnty of the products subject to adulteration In con- clusion the report says "The bill reported bv your committee is to be at once conservative and comprehensive. It is drawn in their Judg- ment alike in the interests of the honest manufacturer and the general consuming public It will render unnecessary the en- actment of laws direc-ed against special interests or designed to supplement trade jealousy By its paeK-tge adulteration aad sophistication IB foods and drugs, It is believed, will be reduced to the minimum, commercial integrity bulwarked by the detection and punishment of dishonest dealers and millions of dollars annually saved now abstracted from the pockets of consumers Supplemented, as it should be by legislation dealing with the inspec- tion of products of tbe slaughter houses intended for foreign sale, it will strengthen and build up a declining export trade in American food products and materially lighten the load now carried by the American farmer DISCOMLVfED8BOBBIESJ DISSATISFIED WITH THE GOVERN MENT'S POLICE BILL The Metropolitan Police at London Wll Ceil a Meeting to Decide Upon a t of An Important BUI Before Anderaon'e Marriage Will be a Quiet Affair. LONDON, June government's police bill, which is just published, fails to satisfy the discontented "bobbies" not withstanding its obvious purpose to mol lify the feeling growing out of Mr Mat thews' arbitrary course The disaffection of the police has anally taken definite form and a meeting of representatives o] the force has been called to decide upon a plan of action which will be put into op- eration at once The professional labor agitators have come promptly to the front with offers of assntanue and in some cases have dispensed with the formality of of faring their services and taken up the cause of the police as their own One of the first measures to be adopted by the police, it is stated upon authority, will be their prompt and positive declination of the assistance of these agitators for the reason that their identification with tht movement will drive away the very ele ment of popular support of which the men stand ui greatest need and upon which they rely chiefly for success The influence of Chief Commissioner Munro is being exerted in the direction of restraining violent expression of the in Uuue excitement which prevails in his de- irtmeut, and this is the onl) check upon a demonstration which would wreck the hopes of the loaders of forcing the govern Oftent into a liberal compromise if not an absolute back down In parliament there is evidence in the temper of the opposl Bon, and Mr Balfonr's surrender io the matter of the land purchase bill of the waning power of tue government, and every possible advantage will be taken of the situation to increase the confusion of the ministry TO PBOTKtT BRITISH INVESTORS A bill of great importance is before par [lament and has been reported favorably from a committee It holds to a strict re spoosibility men who permit their names to be used as the directors of projected companies. It has been a common thing tor noblemen and others here and prom tent Americans en the otuer side to lermit, far a consideration, the of their names in connection with enterprises that are being floated on tbe rtnttth public Hereafter, should the bill become a law, aa it doubtless will at this seeaian, all such persons, thus authorizing the use of their names will be liable finan :ialiy for the truth of the statements to which their names are affixed as guaran tors, and aay person losing money through ch aa enterprise maj bring suit against toy director and damages but the tirector may present aa a sufficient de- Bacea at Brighton Beach.
