Dl'.niiaii, I'ii., June 1(5. This morning
at 11 :30 a sullen loar shook the lowly
miner's dwellings on the Mill farm in
Fayette county near this place. Hun
dreds of affrighted people who knew the
the town too well anil who feared
another mine disaster soon found their
apprehension well grounded. In n
moment the fearful news had spread
that the mine had exploded.
The low blows of the hills from which
the slope entered shook from 'mouth to
pit and a score of miner's houses lining
the fatal hill shook for a moment and
then poured out their frenzied inmates
A rush was made to the mouth of the
pit but ingress was impossible as smoke
In dense volumes was issuing forth.
Fifty-two miners had gone to work this
morning and were in the slope when the

The, mine, it seems, has been some
what troubled with water, and an air
shaft had been drilled from the'surfaco
to a juncture of the right and left shafts,
where water seemed to bo most abund
ant. As tho miners branched off from
thin point they knew an air hole had
been drilled there, and was to bo broken
into tho mine but they did not know
the shaft was broken into today, this
shaft, by tho way, being a six inch hole.
HOW THE ACClDKNT OCCUHRKD.
A man named Kirwiu had been left in
the right drift near where that branch
joined the miners exit and in tho
course of his labor had broken tho
perpendicular shaft. Tho moment
this was broken into a flood
of water gushed out and Kerwln
and a man named Lardy stand
ing hy yelled out to savo tho men in tho
right shaft as tho water jxnired down
tho hill in a stream and he feared they
would bo drowned.
Young Davis Hays who had seen tho
affair leaped forward at tho call and
turned down tho left drift to warn his
endangered comrades below. Just as
he passed tho air shaft that had been
broken into, the rush of water changed
to an ugly roar which blanched tho
t'heecks of the men.
A WALL OK F1KE.
Tho flow of water had changed tho air
to a deadly volume of fierco lircdanip,
and as tho young man swung by tho
shaft a Hash of blazing light slid
through tho shaft from end to end, it
seomed. Tho daring young man car
ried an open burning miner's lamp
in his hat, and ho had
hardly taken a stop .beyond the
roaring shaft when a spark ignited the
reservoir of deadly tire-damp and he
sanK a corpso ten lect towara tne men
whom he had hoped to save and the
men whom he had certainly doomed.
In an instant an unquenchable fire
had sprang up in the mine, along the
foot of tho vein just between tho main
entrance on tlie right drift, forever
shutting off tho thirty-two men im
A KATllElt's AQONV.
l'oor old David Hays, father of tho
mistaken hero, driven mad by the fate
of his son, dashed into tho sulphurous
smoke and strangling lire-damp only to

The tiro fanned by tho nlr
from the main drift and from
the fatal shaft was soon spread
ing into an awful conflagration to
tho men whose doom was all tho more

At midnight smoke and gas from tho
right shaft poured up tho main exit in
unbroken volumes and after trials
almost Iwyoud human endurance tho
rescuing party gave up all hopes of ever

from that entranco and turned ther at

and a half away.

At this hour (2 a. in.) they ore striv
ing to penetrate from that mine, but
the flames and smoke balk their every
effort. The universal verdict from old
miners about the shaft tonight is that
the entombed men have either lieen
kflled outright by the explosion or
later by suffocation. Tho latter
seems to bo tho more probable,
at least in part, as soundings
were heard from tho entombed men as
late as 2 o'clock this afternoon. These
grew weaker and weaker however and

EKFOitTS AT REbCUE.
The miners from the left drift reached
the suifacc blackened nnd bruised, but
safe, and they tell a fearful story of tho
night beyond the blazing coal
on the right. Willing hearts
and hands were not wanting
on thc outside and Clerk Cook,
with Mine-Inpector Keogley, headed
a partv of ono hundred men who
entered tho main shaft and after groov
ing their way on for n quarter of a mile
were driven back again by the deadly
gas, only to recover their breath for "a
moment and again plunge in to lind
that the right drift was impenatrable
and no man living could pass.
They dually come upon two lxxlies
and these were brought to the opening
of the mino when two blackened
ccrpses, tho-o of Shear and Hayes,
and three others were drawn into the
daylight. A moan went up from a few
of the litinredH about tho pit but their
anguish was as nothing to the silent
watches kept by wives, children and

Allison Delivers a Lengthy Address
Upon the Subject Favoring"
By the Associated Press.)
Washington, June 10. At the open
ing of the Senate today the silver bill
was taken up and Allison addressed the
Senate. In the course of Allison's
Bpeech Teller stated there were to his
knowledge two, perhaps three, more
speeches to be made upon it. So a final
vote will not be reached today.
Daniels next addressed the Senate.
In concluding his speech he said that
the world moved and that this was a
land of progress has never been better
demonstrated than by the fact that the
great leader of the Republican financial
policy of the United States (alluding to
Senator Sherman), who carried a
single gold standard over two
continents, hod come forward in
his speech' and lain down at
the feet of tho double standard and pro
claimed that he was at last an advocate
of silver money.
Allison next addressed the Senate.
He said he should vote for the House
bill as amended by the Senate Finance
committee, as he considered it the
wisest and best solution of the question.
The question to be considered was what
currency could be safely substituted for
National Bank circulation. In the judg
ment of the F'inance committee it was
(and he thought it would be the judg
ment of the Senate)that if the government
issued paper money it should issue it on
something that was of itself convenient
to legal tender money, therefore the bill
proceeded on the idea that whatever
paper money should bo issued should be
issued on silver, bullion purchased by
the government at market price,
Why, be asked, had silver bullion been
pelected as a basis for that new paper
money. It was because the public mind
rested in the belief that sooner or
later silver bullion would be coined
and become part of the metallic cur
rency. It was on that basis he
would vote for the bill. It
was on that basis he was willing the
coinage of silver dollars as now pro
vided for should cease. There were peo
ple who believed coined dollars in the
treasury were useless and that it would
Iks wise public policy to cease that coin
age. He, for one, did not share that
belief. He lelieved that it was just as
well to continue them to the utmost
limit of four millions per month but there
was a large public opinion against
that view and therefore he consented
that bullion should be left in the treas
ury uncoined. He did that more read
ily for the reason be believed sooner or
later the United States would have to
change the number of grains of silver in
a dollar and therefore the dollars now
coined would be recoined. He was
therefore willing for bullion to Ik? in
the treasury until it was known whether
there would be an international agree
ment as to the ratio. It was true the
pending bill provided that tho bullion in
the treasury should be coined for the re
demption of treasury notes. Whatever
might be the opinion of other
Senators in that respect he did not labor
under the delusion that in the near
future the provisions of the House bill
or the Senate bill any additional silver
dollars would be issued. There were
now more than three hundred million
coined dollars in the treasury against
which silver certificates had been issued,
so although those dollars belonged to
the holders of certificates, the certifi
cates were payable for public dues, and
when thev were received into the treas
ury they belonged to the government of
United States. So the government would
always have a working balance sufficient
to redeem those treasury notes. He be
lieved the only safe way to rehabilitate
silver was to secure a concurrent agree
ment among the nations.
