dated tho 11th, says: Tor hours after tho
explosion snuffed out tho lives of nearly
a hundred mon tho sceno nt tho pit was
distressing. Poorly clad women with
babes clasped to their breasts camo
through tho darkness by tho light cast
from tho bonfires Hko haggard, uncanny
beings from another world, Somo

and then fell in hysterics among them.
She lay unnoticed in this position until
morning, then sho was removed to her

crush of women and children at the shaft
was so great that it was feared that vio
lence would bo necessary In order to
clear tho way for tho rescuers. Tho
poor creatures fought each other inheir
despair, and In somo instances inflicted
As the night woro on tho work of ro
covering tho bodies continued until tho
floor of tho englnc-houso was strown
with mangled bodies. Then tho bodies
were placed in rows upon tho ground,
where tho rain and snow beat upou

HIS LOUIISJlirS STABLE.
A I.oolt nt SncKvlllo West's Horses nnd
On reading nn advertisement to tho
effect that tho contents of Lord Back
villo's stablo wero on sale, n linlllmoro
American correspondent on Saturday
visited his lordship's residence nnd was
shown over tho stable by Charles, tho
coachman. Charles looked unusually
gorgeous, In a vest of solid red and glit
tering buttons of bras.
Lord Saekvlllo's stablo Is a decidedly
menrgor ono for n llrltlsh Minister, con
sisting, as it does, of only a elnglo pair
of carriage horses. Neither his lordship
nor Jliss West did any riding whilo in
"Washington, although JIIss West is an
expert horsewoman, and rode unlto often
on tho other side.
"Hoth these horses nro for carriage
work," said Clinrlcs, "but they will do
equally well for riding. This horso Is a
llttlolow lu tho forctjuaitcrs, and neither
of them nio very fnst." Charles then
led tho way into the harness room,whcro
thoro wore sovcral complete sots of car
rlago harness, two saddles nnd n riding
bridle. "These sets of harness," said
Charles, ''aro better than anything you
can get over here. The harness made on
tho other sldo Is so much better than tho
American mako; you do things too fast
over hero," ho said, reflectively.
"Hero's a whip, though," ho said, tak
ing ono from a rack and "swishing" It
savagelv about, "that heats anything I
over handled; look at that stick I holly
wood every Inch of It I you couldn t
duplicate that in all England, becauso
holly Is such a scrubby ltttlo plant that It
is a wonder to mo how a stick as long as
this was over secured." Tho wlilp was
made by Fontaine, of London. A very
lino riding saddlo was also shown, but
from hanging in tho stable, from disuse,
n, lontr streak of discolored leather ap
pears across tho scat where tho girth
In tho carriage-room Micro wero two
closed catiinges, au old-fashioned Trench
phaeton, brought hero by Miss West,
but never used, and a sleigh, "Thcso
carriages," said Charles, "wero all mado
by Peters fc Son, of London, who chargo
30 to Just put their naino on acarrlago
ns tho maker." Tho carriage, besides
Mr. Peters' name, bora tho Sackvillo
crest, but It Is doubtful If oven this
combination will causo a very great ad
vance In tho price of thcso articles.
"Things is looking blarsted bluo about
hero," remarked Charles, sadly, as ho
leaned against tho doorway and gazed
pensively at tho houso from which his
lordship will soon bo going. "It was
playing it pretty low down on his lud
nliip, it was, I tell you. And I toll you,
they feels it in there!" ho exclaimed in
a sudden burst ot confidence. "Mibs
West feels douccd bluo about it."
The lmpcrntUo Necessity of Strcngthon
luc tho Wuililnclon Nino.
Unless tho "Washington Baseball nlno
Is greatly strengthened It is doubtful
whether it will rcccivo enough patronago
from the lovers of the national camo to
cnablo It to hold out to tho end of another
season, says a Washington correspondent
of tho St. Louis Republic. For two sea
sons tho Nationals havo wound up at tho
tail-end of tho League clubs. People got
disgusted, nnd many charged that, owing
to tho weakness of the home and other
clubs, hlppodroming was resorted to in
order to glvo tho weaker clubs, a chanco
to win games from the stronger organiza
tions. While this was prpbably not
true.tho playing was such that tho various
managers have been Justly subject to
It was a strango fact that when tho
Chicago, Now York, Detroit and Boston
clubs would come hero tho Washlngtons
wcio able In somo of "tho scries of cames'
to win a majority, and then thoy would go
out on tne roatt nnu get uouoieaupm
two or three straight games by tho weak
est clubs, Hko tho Pittsburg and Indian
apolis, and on ono trip away from homo
tho stronger clubs, like Now York, Chi
cago and Detroit, simply toyed with tho
Wastungtous. Tho organization nos ucen
entirely too weak for tho club to remain
In tho Nntional League, nnd unless some
thing is done to strengthen tho list of
players another season will Und tho
Washington Club practically without pa
tronace beforo half tho camesaro played.
Somo baseball enthusiasts think that tho
only way to have well-matched clubs In
a powerful combination Is to limit tlio
number to eight, and havo ono league,
association, or whatever it might bo
called, and bring tn tho following : Now
York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Balti
more. Cincinnati, Boston. St. Louis and
Chlcaco. Each of tho cities named has
a population largo enough to make tho
game profitable and provide strong or
ganizations. Thcro woUld bo good ball
playing all around, and it bcgltib to look
as If tho managers will havo to come to
somo such arrangement, or clso carry in
both thu Leaguo and Assooiation from
two to three clubs composed of inferior
players, and not ablo to furnish credit
able games in all tho cities.

Tho saloon "hoopers, or nt least tho hun

ly aroused. Tho ullires of tho Comniis
Hloneis wero tliroligcd with them and
their attorneys to-day, making every

was present with his attorney. IIo filed
an nllldavlt stating that ho was not in

was made against Ills' place, and nn cm

Ills caso will bo reconsidered.
There has been n largo number of
hotels and restaurants refused licenses,
nnd tlio question has urrlscn, whether
they will bo allowed to servo liquor with
meals. Commissioner Webb states that
this will not bo allowed, as liquor enn
only bo sold to bo drunk on tlio prcm

only bo sold ns merchandise tinder a
Ho said In regard to furnishing liquor
with meals In hotels, that Judge Mont
gomery had decided that a certain hotel
uroprlctor had a right to servo liquor
with meals, but ho did not make tlio de
cision gonornl, nnd distinctly stated that
it only applied to tho caso 'boforo him.
Mr. Webb Is of tho opinion that tho

effort, procured tho allowance of a claim
which will restoro his fortuno with in

invasion ho entered into a contract to fur
nish the Government a largo supply of
aims nnd ammunition nt a greatly ad
vanced cost, Philadelphia capitalists
wero Interested with him in the transac

containing a largo part of tho caigo and
the failure of tho Government to pay for
its purchase. Sturm was bankrupted nnd
others associated with him lost heavily.
Sturm endeavored to recover insurance
on a Dart of his loss, and tho caso was in
court many years. Two years ago tliero
was nn adverse ruling mi tho claim in
court. Sturm pushed tho matter, how
ever, and has been rewarded by receiving
nn allowance; of $J,123,000 on his claim.
This Is to bo paid in Moxican bonds, nnd
he will not rcalizs tho full amount. IIo
