tho following account oi tho coal mine
explosion there lost evening:
A teirillo explosion tli.it broke win
dows in this littlo village, nnd spread
coustciiiatlon among HH inhabitants oc
cupied nt dusk to-nlghk Thu violence of
tlio shock ytus so great tlltit it hurled
dishes itrom Kliclwcx and dcmoiiiihed
chlmuess. Halt an hour after tho ex
plosion tiho villagers, who were pipparmg
to go to the minis, wero start ltd by the
bight ot it rugged, bleeding man, v. no al
most btnggcied into the Urins of tho
M-archcrs. He said that shaft No. 'J, at
Jb'ontcuuc, a mining suburb ot this village,
bud been destroyed by an explosion, and
that all tho men in tbo mine at the time,
except himself nnd a Dane, 'whom ho left
bkeding at tbo mouth of tho pit, 'wero
At tho mouth of the mine the tremen
dous force of the cx'ldosiou w'asupparcnt.
'llieiQ wero Ilium seams In llio emtli. and
the tlmbcis ot the hoisting apparatus
Acro shivered and burned; foul gases
wero escaping. The Dane who had es
caped with the man who had nlnrmcd
tho vlllugcis lay In tho mtttl with his
face covered with blood. For a long
time it wus thought ho was dead, but hu
regained consciousness in a few limits,
nnd is now nt his home Ho cannot,
hlieak, and docs not know what caused
tho explosion. Ills clothes were in lib
bons. The mini who reached this village
with the fltst tidings of tho disaster, and
who accompanied tho tocucrs back to
the mine, wild the men wero nbout to
quit work for the day when the explo
sion occuired. Together with the D.ino
ho had ridden in tho car to tlio top or the
slmtt when the earth seemed to snap be
neath him, mid the next tiling he teul-
iz.cu amis mo spiasmng 01 tlio biiow and
water upon his face as ho lay with bis
comrade in the wicckage nbovo the mine.
There, were KJO men in the mine at tlio
liino ol tho explosion, nnd as they weio
at work 112 feet below llio suifaco
Jfc iM believed that no ono survived the
bhock, as the explosion must have de
stroyed everything in the pit.
Hig fires wero built near the mouth
ot tho pit mid bewido thce blazing piles
the women of tlio entomed njinem placed
their chlldien, whllo they themselves
tiled by all kinds ot entreaties to ln-
uuco ino miners irom tlio other simits
to enter the pit and rescue their lelatlves.
One rescuing party started down the
bhnft nt 7 o'clock, but wus foiccd to
tuui back, owing 10 tlio foul air. An
other attempt wus made an 0 o'clock,
but the lescucrs nguin wero forced to
ubandun their work. They could hear
no sound from chambers below, and
this lends old miners to bollevn that all
tho men In tho shaft have perished.
Other cfToit.S will bo made to reach (ho
entombed men before morning.
Tlipso who started down tho shaft
early In tho evening bavv that the shook
had destroyed wholo drifts, and that It
is probablo that tho men in tlio lower
levels aro burled beneath tdns ot shite.
Dlnok damp is supposed to havo caused
tlio explosion. Most, of Yhfl miners at
theso shafts came originally from Illinois
