LAST EDITION NUMBER 55 Chalk Marks On Walls Tell Of Their Efforts To Find h Way Out. OLDEST MINER LEADS L PARTY OF SURVIVORS Efforts Will Be Made To Dig Through From Line of Ad- joining Dec. Three miles under the Cross Mountain mine Sam MHIer and a dozen miners are today playing hide and seek with death. Gov- ernment rescue men with oxygen helmets are trying to he4p them. They will probably die unless res- cued today. Miller is the oldest mirier entombed in the explosion Saturday. He knows every passage of the mine and is leading the others constantly toward fresh air. Chalk -marks with Miller's signature are found but the rescuers have not yet been able to catch up with him. Men started today digging from the Crystal mine next to the Cross mountain in hopes of reaching the men. Thirty feet of earth must be bored through. It Is said by miners in the that they have heard rappings on the the barricade. All of Briceville is assembled at the mine aad is watching with dread interest the outcome of the game with death. The stake is at least one dozen lives As the rescuers pro- the mine they are it bplieved. ceed through stopped by flames that have broken out in numerous places. A force pump was Installed last night and the rescue party is fighting the fires and death at the same time. Many cases of insanity have ap- peared among families of the missing miners. Three more bodies were re- covered today making the total 41. That eighty or more bodies are yet to be recovered is generally conceded. Thirty-four have been removed. Canary birds made possible the res- cue alive of the five men who were taken from the mine last night. The canary Ibirds are carried intjo the mine by the rescuers. As soon as the canaries show symptoms of dizziness the volunteer rescuers with the hei- meted workers are not allowed to go and the latter proceed alone. Stricken probably from fear inspired by their two miners who had been with the party rescued last are now dashing wildly in and out of channels in the far re- cesses of the mine. All night long of the rescue squad have been chasing the but just as soon as would-be rescuers get close on their trail the madmen would dash screaming wildly. Fresh rescue squads went into tho cross entries this but their only reward was the discovery of a corpse-strewn chamber far back in the mine. Six bodies were recovered. Additional signs of life were dis- covered in the mine at 11 o'clock. On the walls of the main shaft were found inscribed these have gone to The rescue party penetrated into cross entry No. 23. No miners were found but additional directions 'for their rescue were found scrawled in chalk .on the walls. The rescue squad pressed but. found no one.

State Chairman Says Ohio Is Lost to President And Others TAFT BEGINS FIGHT. WASHINGTON. Dec. 13 Or- ders to all Taft leaders to insist upon iron Tare instructions being given by state conven- to delegates to the na- tienal republican convention were framed today by Secretary Hillis Henry New o f he committee on arrangements of the conven- tion and sent out to supporters of 5 President Taft. Dec. When the members of the national republican committee left Washington after the meeting Tuesday afternoon it was .with a general -understanding that another -candidate than President Taft may be supported in case a man is found who can get the fighting fac- tions together. The Taft followers controlled the meeting and there was nothing to indicate that there was opposition in the meeting. Nothing was said that would indicate the feeling against the renomination of the president. Opposition to Harry New of In- as chairman of the committee on arrangements was withdrawn and he will call that committee together early in January at Chicago to make arrangements. The fight in Ohio for a statewide expression as to presiden- tial preference was made certain by the refusal of Committeeman Vorys to make the call elastic enough to al- low such an expression and State Chairman Walter Brown indicated that he would form a plan whereby such- -an expresstoiT'could made de- spite the call.
