Fayette county uoar this place and hundreds oil allrightcd persons who knew too well and who feared another mine disaster soon found their apprehensions well grounded In a moment the fearful news had spread that the Farm mines had exploded Tho lowbrowed hill from which the stope entered shook from mouth to and the score of mines houses lining the fatal bill shook for a moment and then poured out tbelr by the hundreds A rush was made to the mouth of tho pit but Ingress was impossible assmoke in dense volumes was Issuing forth Fiftytwo miners had gone to work in tho morning and wcro in the stope when the ex plosion occurred Of these fiftytwo eigh teen were In the left heading and thirty four In the right heading Those in the eft heading got out all right The retreat of thu others wus out oil1 and escaped Of those twentyone were married aucl uau laThoIUmlne it seems had been somewhat troubled with water and an air shaft nail been drilledfrom tho surface lo the junc ture of the right and left shafts where the water seemed to bo most As the miners branchedoff from this pomt they know that an air hole had boon drilled there that had not yet been broken into the mmo but they did not know that the shaft was to be broken into today this shaft by the way being a sixInch hole A miner named Kerwni had bceu left iu tho right drift near where that branch tho mines exit and iu tho course or his labors broke imo the perpendicular shaft The moment this was broken into a ilood of water rushed out and Kerwin and a man named Laiiuy standing by yelled out for some one to save the men In the right shaft as tho water poured down the hill m a stream and ho feared they would drown Young Davis Hays who had seen the allair leaped forward at tho Call aud turned down theleft drift to warn his en dangered comrades below Just as no passed tlio air sliafb that had been broken into tho rush ojt water an ugly roar which blached the checks of tlie men Tho flowof water had changed to a deadly volume ol lire damp and as Young Hays Swung by tho shaft a Hash of blazing slid through tho shaft from end to cud it seems that the during young man carried an opeu burning miners lamp in his hand and ho had hardly taken a stop boyond tho roaring shaft whon the spark limited tho reservoir of damp aucKhe ton feet men whom he had hoped to save and the men whom ho had certainly doomed In an instant a fierce lire sprang tip in the mine just between the main entrance and tho right forever shutting oil the thirtytwo men Imprisoned there ioor old David of the ill fated hero drivenmad by tho fate of his son clashed intotho sulphurous smoko and strangling lire damp only to fall blindly by thosldooi1 his son and to be drawn out an hour lator with James Slioarn Both were only by their wives Tho fire fanned by air from tho main drift and from shaft soon de veloped into an awful conflagration At midnight tho smoko and gas from the rMit shaft poured up tho main exit in an unbroken volume and after trials almost boyond human endurance the rescuing party gave uy all hopcof over recovering tholr comrades dead bodies from that en tranco and turned their attention to the Ferguson mine a mile anda half away At tnlsUour 2 a they are striving to pene trate from that mine but tho flames and smoko balk tholr every effort Tho universal verdict from old miners about tho shaft tonight is that the en tombod menwore either killed outright by tho explosion or Inter by suffocation The latter seems to be more at least in part as soundings wero heiird from tho en tombed mon as late as 1 oclock this after noon These grow weaker and weaker how over and half an eventhe most hopeful of tho willing rescuers could hear say that had they known tho shu ft was to be broken into they would have never entered the mine as either water or gas would surely follow since in these re gions gas always comes from the upper shale The owners however and in fact some of tho men themselves say it was an accident pure and simple that could not have boon avoided The disaster Is the worst over in the ConnellsvJllo re gion Tho damage to tho mine cannot now bo estimated bub thobwners fear the stopo

United Mates u hid ing to Senator who hurl carried the single standard over two continents liatl joniu forward in his speech and lain down at the feet of double standard and proclaimed he was at lenst an advocate ol1 silver money next addressed the Senate He snid that he would vote for the House bill asamended hv the Senate Finn nee Committee lie con sidered it the wisest and best solution ortlie question The question to be considered was what currency would safely substituted loi the National bank circulation The judgment of tiicFinance Committee was and he thought it would be the judgment of the Semite that if the Government issued paper monev il should issue it on something that was in and of itself convert ible into legal tender money Thcrelorc ilia bill proceeded on the idea that whatever paper money should be issued should be issued on silver bullion purchased by the Government at he market price Why be asked had silver bullion been selected as a basis for tin Know paper money It was because tho public mind rested in the belief thatsooner or later silver bullion would be coined and become a part ol Uie metallic currency It was on that basis that be would vote for the bill It was on that basis that lie was willing time the coinage of silver dollars us now provided for should cease There were people who be lieved that coined dollars in the Treasury were useless and that it would be a wise public policy to cease that coinage He for one dm not share in that belief he believed that u was iust as well to continue them to theutmost four millions a month but there was a laifft public opinion against that view ana therefore he consented that the bullion should be left hi the Treasury uncoined He did that more readily for the reason that he believed sooner 01 later the United States would have to clianee the number of grains of the silver dollar and therefore thedollars now coined would be recoineu He wus therefore willing that the bullion snouldbo in the Treasury until it was known whether there would be an international agreement as to the ratio It was true that the pending bill provided that the bullion in the Treasury should be coined for redemption of Treasury notes Whatever murht be the opinion of other Senators in resmcl he did not hrtlor under the delusion tliat in the near future under the provisions of tne House bill or the Senate bill any additional sil ver dollars would be issued There were now more than coined dollars m tho Treas ury against which silver certificates were issued although those dollars belonged to the holders of the certificates the cer tificates wore payable for public dues and when they were received into Treasury they belonged to the Government of tho United Staves So the Government would alwavs have a workingbalance suflieient to re deem those Treasury notes He believed the only siie way to rehabilitate silver was to secure a concurrent agreemen t among the nations where by they would open their mints concurrently to tiie free coinage silver at an agreed ratio so believing he was willing to go on as they were going on now tentatively as it with a provision for the use of silver pending negotia tions that ought to be had for the restoration of silver on some agreed rate by the naUoiifi of the world In supporting the bill he supported it on a basis of the idea that the Government oftheUnited States would use its power in endeavoring to secure an agree ment whereby all the commercial nations ol the world would use silver as gold was now used at a ratio to be agreed upon He regarded the pend in measure and the unanimity with which it was supported as a complete justification of the legislation of 1S7S which contemplated a mini m inn monthly coinage ol two million silver dol lars and ft maximum of four millions He was for a full and complete restoration of silver as one of the coin metals of the wond and was do whatever he could do to promote that most desirableobject He vote for Use free coinage of silver at this time or at any time iu near future he could not do so until every effort to secure the use of silver by thecommercial nations of the world was ex st commented upon the remarks of Allison as to the newborn zeal of the Democrat Senators in the cause of free coinage ol silver and made a statement to show that it had always been the Democrats policy If the Democratic party said nothing on the silver question in the platform before it was not because le had receded from the position it always held It was because President Cleveland was an Knstern man a Isew York man who did not with the ma iorltyofhis party on that question Cleveland had come to the with the nreiudicoof the New York bankers and was m one sense as far ns his opinion on silver was con cerned a sectional mail He had reason to be lievenow that Mr Cleveland was better informed on the stibiect Vest declared that on the silver question there was no middle ground Silver must be
