The men say that had they known the shaft was to be broken into, they would never have entered the mine, as either water or gaa would surely hare fol- lowed, since in these regions gas always conies from the upper shale The owners, er, and in fact some of the men them- selves, say it was an accident, pure and simpler that could neither hare been avoided nor atoned for The mines are owned by the Donbar For- nace company, and the owners are all eastern men and employ about 150 men Charles A tTEAV CHANGES Tbe Senate 1 inancc Committee and the Tariff Bill WASHINGTON June Ifi ropies of the tariff b 11 as amended by republican mem hers of the senate nnance committee up to Saturday night, were laid before tbe sub-corn mittee todaj It included tlie sugar and to- bacco schedules, and copies of these were to to Senator representing tbe minority federal changes viere made today and thu> Till prcbably be the daj until the bill gets into the senate It is ex pected that the sub-committee will be able to report the measure Wednesday or Thursday Mr McKmley s.ud that the chaiges made in the house bill bj the nnance committee are comparatively few and unimportant Senator Car isle savs he has not jet begun work on the report to be submitted by tbe minority, and that he will not do so until tho entire bill has been placed in his hands This need not delay tbe report of the bill to tbe senate by the majonty he says, as the minority will ask leave to present its icws at a subsequent date Tlie house committee on public lands has a favorable report on the senate bill to ronhrm title to phosphite lands in B londa taken up by actual settlers under tlie homestead law in ignorance of its mineral BIJCSUVGKAJT, Ala June-40 keg of beer caused a small race riot t jJi at BrooImSide, a small mimngtown, miles west of tins city A pitched battle w a f on the main one hnndie i T ed negroes on one side, and about seventy nva white men on the other Tom Redmond, leader of the e waa killed and two or three others won 11 1 Tona Acres, white, received a slight wou I o s lho> head He was the onlv white man hi r OKIGIJ.
