Scene Is Dramatic.
"When experts had drilled a hole
through the conoreto at the top of tho
second vein airshaft and all prepara
tions made to lower Mr. Williams and
his volunteer explorers, the scene at
the mine was dramatic Along tho rail
road tracks and iu fields on tho cast
and west of the shaft wns a wall of hu
manity. Stout ropes and policemen
kept back the throng.
It was a silont, but not undemonstra
tive assemblage. Occasionally a wom
an s wail broke the stillness. Four men
appeared, oxygen bags on their shoul
ders and steel and glass covered hoods
over their heads. Thev were, beside
Air. Williams of Urbana, his assist
ant .Tames II. Webb of the University
of Illinois: .James Hand of Spriuj' Val
ley and Ilenrv Smith of Peru. Later,
Mine Inspector .lames Taylor of Peoria,
doniied the regalia.
A score of men were ready to assist
them. A system of signals had been
prepared. Two mn were stationed at
the top of the shaft. Williams and
Smith prepared to desceud. Inspector j
Tavlor drilled them in their signals.
The in-n who were to undertake the ,
exploratiou nodded assent. Engineer
Cowley at the hoist that controlled the
iron bucket in which Williams and
Smith wero standing announced his
readiness, and the first, men to enter
the St. Paul mine since the explosion
were slowly lowered.
When sixty feet down the signal to
raise e.nno and was at once obeyed.
Tho helmet-covered explorers soon reap
'cared. "The bucket i3 Hoi- hung right," said
Williams. "It strikes and bounds in
the shaft. It 'must be rebalanced."
This work required some lime.
Meanwhile Williams and Smith ex
plained to the mining o flic in Is and the
company men that the shaft was tilled
with smoke and that their powerful
electric lanterns would not penetrate
the gloom. When repairs had boon
made an hour later and with Hand,
Webb and Taylor at the wheel, tho ex
plorers descended again.
For .'100 feet the bucket went down.
Then eamc the signal for ascent. When
the men reappeared. Williams said:
"Wo found 'an obstruction at 300 feet.
Wo might have got by it. but if we
signaled to come up wo" would undoubt-j
edlv strike it coming up. We wanted'
to notify tho men above of tho condi
tion so they would understand."
Williams and Smith this timo ac
companied by Inspector Taylor, de
scended for the third lime. They wero
gone ten minutes.
"Wc got to the base of the second
vein," said Inspector Taylor, "and,
though we could sec little, we found no
excessive temperatures. It was ap
parent that the fire had not penetrated
deeply into tho mine, and we could
not see signs of flames. Jf the tem
perature throughout the second
vein is no more excessivo than there,
in the deeper and further rocosKos of
the mine it is probable that there nnv
be oxygen to keep the men alive. We
saw no trace of mon, either dead oi
alive. Tomorrow. I think, we can go
farther with safety."
Late tonight, after a. conrVronoo of
mining inspectors, company officials and
experts, it was decided to open the ni.iin
shaft iu tho morning aud to semi ex
plorers into the mills in ilie regular
cage. This iTlan w.is adoptc 1 because
the bucket scheme was found imprac
ticable in so far .is movements of the
men below wero conccr.ied. They could
not get out of "he bucke. So it
was determined to seal up the air shaft
tonight. The seals of iha uiaiu fhaft
will be opened, and experts beiieve con
ditions will be safe fo.- theu to walk

Mr. French's Attitude. Iftfli
"I am unalterably opposed lo the lonsr- l3CBE
or continuation of Mr. Cannon as speaker SBH
of the house of representatives." states fflflffl!
;Ir-. I;ro.nch. "He should have been de- mm
feated the last time and would have been In'Ii
beaten had those who had pledged lo vote Ifftul (
against-him redeemed their promise lo f (
the people. Mr. Cannon. In my opinion. : II
does not represent the sentiment of the ; itim
masses of the people 0f the West, nor I MU
o any other part of the country, for IH'
that matter, and Cannonlsm stands for a : IfflN)
type of pollilcs that Is not at all In I MSiU
harmony with American ideas. It stands lilMffl'
for selfishness and favqrltlsm to tho in- I Wmii
dividual as against the people generally. f PJi
and lor a policy that means for the host ; Ififf
Interest of the 'special interests.' Not ISkhH
with any feeling of 111 will toward Mr. WWR
C annon, but after a few years of service IImHI
In the house of representatives I mako fwU
this statement with tli.e fooling that tho Jil
country Is not receiving at the speaker's WKm
hands that which It Is entitled to ex- MHi
pect. I say frankly that there Is basis tMEKltt
for the severe arraignment of Mr. Can- HHbB)
non because of the great abuse of the 'EMB
power that lias been placed In his hands. MM
'How any western man can stand luiH
for Mr. Cannon when there is a posslbll- HHn
Ity of defeating him. passes beyond my -BIRfi
comprehension. In the house the speaker MHf
has become the czar and never before Bfl
havo honesty and courage been so basely fl II
Insulted as Iu tho special session of con- 'HI
gress just closed. When men were re- iHH
moved from responsible committee posi-
lions because they had the courage to IBM
stand for what they believed to bo right. HB
and when other men wero given political IMS
preferment because they kissed the hand 'HH
that smote their fellows. IIIm
"Not only this but In legislation the fii9
power ot tho speaker and his coterie is 'QH
felt. Every niombor of congress can !wM
point to Instanco after instance where the hBH
Josh has been employed to whip members iiflffl
Into line, and those who would not bo UN
coerced were placed at a disadvantage in 'HI

Bosults of Rules. IlUll
"The rules of the house are supposed WWl!
to be for the expediting or legislation. rvEHlU
So they are. in part, but In largo purl :HHI
they servo the purpose of stlffling leg- iHnH
Islatlon and make It possible for little or iUHE
no legislation .to bo passed that does not IffiiHtO
have the approval of the speaker. Should iffwBfi
1 become a candidate for congress again. iff iMI
1 would certainly oppose tho election of lllH I
Mr. Cannon as speaker of the house, and H mk I
t would throw my whole, soul Into tho i H I
movement for such a reformation of i H I
the rules of the house as would remove 'H
the despotism of tho speaker, and mako H
It possible for an Individual member to JRS
be more self-respecting, and further. Mi
would make It possible for the constltu- a ?M
ency of every member to actually seo 'j 'fl
how Its representative stands on the ! M
various questions. jM
"On the tariff question my position Is 1 9
very well known. I am in favor of the 11 SMI
duties that were placed upon Idaho nro- if Hi
ducts. Certain features of the tariff bill if HI
I do apt approve of at all. I am iu favor '1 mfj
of the establishment of a permanent tar- M 'mm
