BY OIL EXPLOSION
Ten Men Are Caught in the
1400-Foot Level With No
Chance to Escape Ex
cept Through Flames. ,
ELY, Nov., Aug. 2-1. Seven men
met death and three others were
seriously injured early today in
a fire which swept tho new five
compartment shaft of tho Giroux Con
solidated Mines company here. Two
bodies remain in tho workings, but
there is nn hope that the men may be
found alive. Both shafts of the mine
have been sealed to smother the flames.
Following is the list of dead:
DAJKIEL DRKA, secretary of the lo
cal miners' union.
T. J. GILMORB. shift boss.
Of theso Foley died at tliff hospital to
day nnd the bodies of Wnlsli and Mc
Nulty have not boon recovered.
Tho fire was cnuscd, it is believed,
by tho explosion of a barrel of oil at
the pumping Btation on the 1200-foot
lovol of the now shaft. Ten men wero
working at the 1400-foot lovol at tho
time and these looked up to 6oo tho
sIraftraJbrjVo'tTiem filled with flames.
They nt onoe boarded lho cufce and
started. for tho surface. Thoy encoun

(and stopped. "
Vain Effort, to Escape.-
"Wilhelmy and four other men left
the cacre and started to walk through
the 1200-foot lovol to the old Alpha
shaft, 700 feet away, through which
they hoped to climb out of tho mine.
The five men remaining in the cage
gave tho signnl to hoist and wero pulled
through the blazing shaft. One was
dead when tho top was reached and
tho others were taken to a hospital.
The work of rescuing the fivo men
remaining in the mine was then at
tempted through the Alpha shaft,
At the 400-foot level Wilhelmy was
found dead; Gllmore's body wns recov
ered at tho 600-foot level, faco down
ward at tho bulkhead. Odolvich lay
dead, but Walsh and McNulty wero not

Bodies Taken Out.
This is tho enmo mino in which, throo
and a half years ago, two men were
killed and four others wore entombed
for forty-six davB on the 1000-foot levol
of tho Alpha shaft.
Tho now shaft is ono of the largest
and deepest in tho district, and cost
more than a quarter of a million dollars.

MAY BE CLOSED
District Judges Divided on
Point Raised in Office of
the City Re
corder. ENFORCEMENT WOULD
Only Four Resident Free
Holders in the Largest
District of Salt
TWO blocks of the business district
which contain more saloons than
any other two blocks In the city
will be prohibition territory if the
liquor law passed by the last slate
legislature is construed literally by the
courts. These blocks are bounded by
State and Main streets and by Third
South and First .South streets. Within
these two blocks aro forty-six saloons,
none of which is eligible to operate under
a literal construction of the new liquor
Each one of these saloons lias applied
for a renewal of its liquor license, but
every application from this section Is be
ing held up by City Recorder B. S. RIvcb
because It fails to comply with the new
state law, which requires that a ccrtlll
cato of good character signed by five
resident freeholders of tho voting district
In which the license Is to ho effective
accompany the application. In the voting
district in which these saloons arc located
there aro, all told, only four resident
freeholders, which makes It absolutely
impossible for Ihe applicants for saloon
llccnsos to comply with the literal "re
quireme,nts of the new law.
Judges .Are Divided.
While the Judges of tho district court
have not formally passed upon this fea
ture of tho law, it is understood that
they aro divided as to Its proper con
struction. Thoy aro agreed that a literal
construction of the law means that the
certificate of character must be signed by
live persons who are freeholders and resi
dents of the district' In which tho saloon
license Js effective. However. It has been
suggested that a .more , liberal construc
tion by the court might bo possible,
whereby tho entire city might be. consid
ered ds a voting, district, or the require
ment making tho freeholders rcsldonts of
the district might be ignored as Incon
sistent with the rest of the law.
I Many of the saloon men affected bv
the "resident freeholder" class are or
the opinion that the relief Is in a test
case which would not only give a legal
construction to- this portion of the liquor
law. but would test the constitutionality
of the entire liquor law.
Sixty-six applications for licenses are
being hold up by the city recorder because
tho applications do not conform to the
law. Of these forty-six aro from dis
trict 51. In which thcro are only four
rosldcnt freeholders. In tho other dis
tricts in which saloons are located there
are enough resident freeholders to go
around, although there were twentv ap
plications for licenses from theso districts
which did not conform to the law and
which aro being held up with tho othor
In district 51 the four resident, free
holders eligible to Bign tho certificates
aro Dr, and Mrs, John T. White, resi
dent at tho Whitehall; Mrs. ID. F.
Holmes, who lives at the Gardo house,
and Mrs. B. Anderson, who owns nnd
lives in a rooming house on Commercial

The contention Ik mado that tho pur
poso of tho legislature 'was not to make
this territory prohibitory, especially In
view of the fact that the city voted
against prohibition. However, tho law
specifically requires thai the certificates
be signed by five resident freeholders of
tho voting district The portion of the
law covering this subject, follows:
The Law on the Subject.
"Chapter 105, Sec, I. - In ad
dition to tho foregoing, tho application
shall contain a certificate of nt least
five resident freehold ors of the voting
district in which tho UccnHO Is to be ef
fective, to the effect that each of the
persons aforesaid personally know tho
applicant, that he Is a man of good moral
character, and that In their opinion ho
Is a fit and proper person to bo granted
u license. In case of a firm or copart
nership, the foregoing certificate shall llo
made to cover all of the mnmlmrs. No
application flmll be accepted or filed 'by
the i'lty recorder, town clerk or county
clerk unless the statements therein con
tained substantially conform to the fore
going provisions und Is certified to us
City Recorder Rives said that under
this section as he interpreted it there
was nothing for him to do but to refuse
to accept nnd file fhc applications which
did not conform to the provisions of this
section. At the solicitation of represen
tatives of the saloon men uffectoil, the
city recorder yesterday, agreed to hold
up the applications until Saturday morn
ing. At thnt. time, however, unless he
becomes convinced that some other In
terpretation of the Inw Is correct, Mr.
Rives will return tho papers to the ap
plicants. Tho saloon men aro said to be consid
ering filing mandamus proceedings to
compel the city recorder to file the ap
plications. Such proceedings would bring
n Judicial construction on this portion of
the law and,, determine tho future courso
to bo pursued in testing the law.
