A tragedy was the result of the blowing up of a car of black powder on a train of cars on which th* men were ridtng to various chambers of the mine. The pow-d**r was ignited by sparks from a broken trolley wire and bodies were scattered everywhere by the tremendous force of the explosion. The greatest loss of life, however. was caused by fire which immediately broke out, many of the victims being burned to a crisp. Still others, only slightly injured and who might have escaped, were suffocated by the smoke and fumes while trying to make their escape. Rescue work began immediately. the injured ones being rapidly removed from danger and the dead pil**d in tiers on the green. Identification of the bodies is almost impossible, for many are charred beyond recognition. The death list is growing rapidly as the bodies are removed from the mine. Hundreds of women and and children gathered about tunnels shrieking and crying and lifting the blankets from the dead bodies piled os the green about tho colliery, seeking to learn if their husbands and fathers and sons were among the lost. Rescuers later got into the mine with a hose and played streams of water on the flames. While they were working the cries of dying and injured could be heard above th** roar of the flames. Revised List of Victims. W1LKESBARRE, June 5.—(3 p. in I According to the list given oui by company officials, 78 men lost their lives and 31 were injured. Th** list was given out at noon and it was announced later that the list might be even larger. Forty-one bodies have been identity! and 37 remained unidentified. Th** list of injured Is not complete and it is certain it will bo larger, possibly reaching 40. One of the drastic provisions of the anthracite mine codo forbids men riding on a car or train carrying explosives. An investigation will decide whether the company or the mea were responsible for the pi senee of a dozen kegs of powder on tin* rear of the train carrying the men to the tunnels.

SUFFRAGE RESOLUTION PASSED BY SEDATE WASHINGTON, June 4.—The long battle for the submission of the woman suffrage amendment was won today when the senate by a vote of 65 to 25 passed the resolution which passed the house just two w'eeks ago. The resolution now' goes to the legislatures for ratification. The amendment was supported by 36 republicans and 20 democrats and opposed by 17 democrats and 8 republicans. It received tw*o more votes than were needed to make the requisite two-tliirds. The sutfrage amendment as it will be added to the constitution if ratified by the states reads: "Article —, Section I:    The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. "Section 2:    Congress shall have power, by appropriate legislation to enforce the provisions of this article.” STREET TAKES ARE BEIRD PAID Mayor Kitchens reports that they are experiencing but little difficulty in collecting the street tax this year. Last year many of those notified did not "come across.” and. although warrants were issued, they were never pushed and many citizens who should have “delivered” failed to do so. The w'ork of collecting this tax is done by taking one section of the city at a time. lf the men in a certain ward fail to pay the tax as instructed tho work of collecting it is turned ovei to ‘he police department for action. They have had to make no arrest* this season. Tho mayor says absolutely no man will be excused and all who are notified must pay OI suffer the consequences. Those who have had dealings with th* 1 mayor know he means what he says. Those who must pay the street tax are men between 21 and 50 years of age, who are not physically disabled. A residence of ten days in the city is all the time required. TO IKE ORIVE BIG MEMBERSHIP CAMPAIGN PLANNED FOR PURPOSE OF RAISING FUNDS FOR IMPROVEMENTS. The Ada Cemetery association, composed of many of the leading ladies of the city, are planning a big membership drive to start within the next few' days for the purpose of securing funds to make some much needed improvements in both cemeteries. The membership fee w T ill be one dollar and it is expected that every citizen of the city, both male and female who are not already members, will respond to the movement heartily and be glad to offer this assistance to a most worthy cause. The improvements contemplated im mediately are some much needed fencing and the erection of a chapel within the cemetery grounds. The "flu” epidemic last fall and winter so enlarged the cemetery at Ada that quite a bit of expense is incurred in taking care of it, and no people can afford to be so unpatriotic and unsentimental as to neglect their public cemeteries. They should by all means be made places of beauty, and no progressive city like this should fail to have erected in their cemeteries a nice chapel. An effort will be made later, it is thought, to close the road between the new' and old cemetery and open a new road around at least two sides of the combined grounds, but this will first have to be taken up with the state highway commission. Further details will appear in the News at a later date, but when the drive starts it is hoped by the ■cod ladies of the association that every citizen of Ada will enter into the spirit of the movement and do their best to make it a success.
