Galveston March 8.�?it was the general impression this morning throughout the City that the Day would be filled with Railroad strikes Cotton press strikes wharf strikes and the like but to the great satisfaction of the business interests no strike occurred and Hopes Are entertained that the trouble May be averted. At the Taylor compress the Cotton handlers quit work about 2 of clock this afternoon and went outside tile company a Yard where superintendent Crooks met them in a few minutes anti persuaded them to return to work. This rather confirms the prevalent Rumor that the knights in the five Cotton presses Are not inclined to strike and would Only obey a general order with the greatest reluctance As they have no individual grievances and the compress Coin panics have ceased to Mark the destination upon the Cotton Bates until after it has been compressed thus affording their employees the plausible excuse that they did not know the Cotton was destined for the Mallory line. The troubles on the Gould system have not reached Galveston yet and freight is going out to Houston but not beyond. It is reliably reported to night that the local assemblies have United in calling the executive committee of District 78 to meet Here wednesday and sit on the Mallory Boycott Case until it is formally settled if it takes All summer.

Connellsville pa., March 8.�?shortly after noon to Day a series of explosions took place in the Uniondale mine at Dunbar four Miles from Here by which two men were killed and 12 others received injuries which will prove fatal in at least four cases. The cause of the explosion was fire Damp. There were 23 men in the pit. The first explosion occurred about 12 30 of clock this afternoon. It was a terrific Shock and was followed by two others in Quick succession a few minutes later. The first sex Fosion caused the death of two men and no tired three. The rest ran towards the Mouth of the pit but before they reached it the explosions occurred. Lights were blown out the dust blinded the men and the passage ways were blocked up and cutoff escape. The pit was on fire and a horrible Fate awaited impels de miners. Nine who had been working in another entry managed to make their layout before the Mouth of the pit was choked. The Force of the Shock can be imagined As it caused men in the Morrell Calvin and Wheeler the adjoining mines to drop their tools and Rush panic stricken to the top. The ground rolled and quaked so that Many fell Down and three or four in the Morrell mine were violently thrown against the Wall and seriously injured. Everybody rushed to towards the Uniondale mine. Columbus Shay of the Mahoning works and James Henderson of the Calvin mine headed the rescuing party which went to work with picks and shovels to Force an Entrance. In a few minutes an opening was made and several rushed Forward the enter the mine but were repelled by the volume of flame. It took several minutes for the smoke and fire to Clear away. The cries of pain and moans of the injured men were piteous. They were lying in every direction burled under masses of debris. Several of them were burned. Their sufferings were terrible. Twelve of them were found in a dying condition and two others were dead and mangled in an almost unrecognizable mass. Mine inspector j. J.
