A Fierce Usi-ing Into the Mouth of the Hill ruriti Magazine 1'regrmint With Against Hope Blasted. DCNBAH, Pa., June is no longer any hope-and faith in the indus- trious rescuers ha- been abandoned. The entombed miners cannot be rescued now. A furious fire has sealed their fate, and if their dead bodies escape the hungry flame? the pilfering rats that infest the will have gnawed them beyond recogni- tion. Death never came to men in a more revolting form and affliction never fell heavier on the bereaved This has been an awful, yet even a greater disaster threatens. Afire, lierco as a whirlwind, is raging for 2.000 feet down into the yawn- ing mouth of the Hill Farm mine. Deadly gas generated back of the burning mine, and the ponderous hill into which the Hill Farm, the Ferguson and the Mahon- ing pits are driven is a mighty ning fairly pregnant with death. The lightest stroke of a miner's pick would explode it. and the effect of such an explosion would be awful to contemplat0. The rescuing party has withdrawn from the face of the Mahoning pit. A strong guard has been placed at the mouth of mines to keep out the im- patient, 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. Fire started in the mouth of the Hill Farm pit shortly after 9 o'clock last night. It fol- lowed promptly after the drill entered the burning For two hours before the flames burst out huge billows of smoke, black, dense and deadly, rolled over each other into the air and drifted upward, forming a ponderous monument of mourning to the dead inside. A rumbling, rushing sound like a swiftly moving train through a tunnel preceded the flames. Secretary Watcborn, Superintendent Hill and the United Press reporter were at the pit mouth awaiting the outbreak. To the experts the smoke indicated ap- proaching fire, and for half an hour before its arrival its coming could be heard. Long before the fire reached the pit mouth it could be seen licking up the timbers io the mine, and the steady stream of water which rippled down the slope seemed only to inspire and encourage to wilder efforts the angry fiend. It was indeed an awful sight, and when, with a brilliant flash, the column of smoke was ignited the heavens seemed aflame. Fantastic figures of fire darted hither and thither, chasing each other to the clouds and burnfng a huge hole through the gloom of night. The surrounding coun- try was lighted up, guiding the excited, nervous crowds to the scene. Those who had been watching at the Mahoning mine hurried over the hill to the flre. The peo- ple of Dunbar who could see the reddened heavens from the village rushed about in confusion fearful that another calamity had occurred. The families of the entombed miners who have waited and watched until their grief had become deadened aroused and their suffering and distress carne to them anew. Neighbors cathered into each stricken home, and while they comforted the living they prayed for the dead, and Avhile they watched the fire they seemed j mentally to bury their loved ones. The heading in the Hill Farm mine was i not accompanied with accident. James Barnhill. a practical miner, guided the drill, and when he touched the objective point he secured a srrten bagful of the air and then the rescuing part" was ordered out of the pit. Inspectors Keighley, Black and Evans then examined the faee of the mine, after which they left the place to consult. They decided that any attempt to break through the dividing wall might be ac- companied by accident. The suspension of work just when the i unfortunate miners were almost within reach has been a great divappointraent I here and has s-till further enraged the j people. The false reports sent out daily by the mine nr-- had led them to hope against and when the fire started last the feelinrr was in- tensely bitter ajzain-t who they would hold respon-ihje for the delay. A party is heins made up to go down in the mine. It is almost certain death for the volunteer- and there is, excite- ment. i bout AN ACT OF GALLANTRY Causes Young JIa: ried Man to Lose His Life Near Koel-.ester. X.

July sprite yes- morning pas-L-1 bill to the leasing of t< hool lands in Oklahoma. Mr. Plumb explained the bill. The leases are not to be for a longer period than five years, and the necessity tor the bill arises out of the fact that homesteads have settled upon these lands not knowing that they were school and that special agents from the general land office have been serving notice? on the to move. The Idaho bill was then taken up and Mr. Vance made a speech in opposition to district under his jurisdiction, in which Sad Death of Nelson A. Graves. ROCHESTER, N. Y., June A.

Mr. HuckalfW of Pennsylvania favored the air. 'iidment. Mr. Kowell of Illinois opposed amendment and favored the bill. lireckenridgeof Kentucky said that the bill put it in the power of the United States courts to substantially control the house of representatives. Mr. McComas of Maryland opposed the amendment and favored the bill as in the interest of free and fair elections. Mr. Mills of Texas pointed out the dan- gers which might arise from the applica- tion of the law. Suppose the house was Democratic by twenty-five majority, and was so shown by certificates of the various governors; suppose the supervisors certi- fied twenty-five majority to their way and the clerk of the house acted upon this cer- tificate, what would be the result? Gen- tlemen ought not to forget that this was the Anglo-Saxon race which was jealous of its rights and never counted the cost of holding and them. Mr. Kerr of Iowa said it was the duty of the house to see to it that the people of the country were represented by the men whom they had in fact elected to repre- sent them. Mr. Caruth of Kentucky ?aid that he had heard a good deal about a free ballot and a fair count. According to the Re- publican doctrine, "a. free ballot is one that elects our ticket, and a fair count is are that counts tis in.'' The purpose of this bill was to perpetuate the Republican party in power. They claimed that the Republican party had done nothing for the Mr. Dolliver of Iowa believed the had come when the Republican party must discharge not only its but its duty to the American people, ami he hoped the Republicans would stand as one man for the sanctity of American citizen- ship.

He claimed that the proposed constitutional steps by the people of Idaho for admission to statehood had not been taken, and that the territory did not have a population sufficiently large to entitle it to admission to the Union. At the close of Mr. Vance's speech the bill was passed without division. The conference committee appointed on the part of the senate disagreement on the legislative appropriation bill reported that the house refused to agree f o the senate amendments and declined further con- ference. The only alternative was failure of the bill, or a recession on the part of the senate. Mr. Dawes moved that the senate recede and that motion led to a long discussion on the subject of clerks and compensa- tion. The senate finally refused to recede. This means that unless the house or senate reconsiders its action of Monday the legislative bill will fail and anew the legislative bill will have to be prepared j and Mr. Hiscock moved a reconsideration of the vote by which the senate determined its action, and that motion is now pend- ing. Mr. Reagan addressed the senate on his bill to prevent transportation of merchan- dise in bond through the ports and terri- tory of the United States into the republic If Mexico, and to restore the privilege Whenever the Zona Libre has been abol- ished.

The three executives drove to the state house shortly after 10 o'clock, and, after being introduced to each other by Governor Hovey in his private parlor, an in- formal reception for a couple of howl. Meanwhile the various divisions of the parade began to form at their designated rendezvous, and at 1 o'clock seven guns were fired as a signal, and the head of the column moved.

PlTTSBURG, July Times' special from Dunbar .says: At (5 o'clock last night hope and work were abaildoned at the Hill Farm mine, and the dust or ashes of the thirty imprisoned miners may rest beneath the Dunbar Hill until the last day shall come. The last exploring party entered the mine at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. They did not come out until 7 o'clock at night. Three of their number had entered to within a few hundred feet of the subter- ranean fire and had found the dinner buckets and blouses of two of the men. The explorers suffered from the intense heat and black damp and scarcely esl with their lives. It was a trip to crates of the most realistic and pracHcal hell that could be found on this earth. The explorer-, visited nine place.- where the men were known to have at woik. Their picks and .-hovels were found lying where they had been dropped One mule was found dead and putrified.
