DOWN A SHAFT
Patrick Lynn Was Almost Instantly
Killed by Ills Pall.
NEARLY EVERY BONO WAS BROKEN
Ijynn II ml Hccn Loitering About tho
Pine llrook Shaft tho Crcnt I'nrt of
tho Afternoon. -At 5.30 Mount tho
Toot llcnrd Somothlitc 1'nlllng
Down tho Shnfl--Younc Mnn Waa
Out of Kmploymcnt.
Tatrlck Lynn, a young man about 21
years of age, was almost lnstantally
killed at 5.30 yesterday afternoon at tho
Pine Droolt shaft by falling a distance
of 205 feet. John Reap and David
Jones, young men, who were sitting at
the foot of the shaft waiting for a car
riage to lift them to the surface, heard
a peculiar noise in the shaft, which
gradually Increased In volume until It
semed to them that n car was falling.
They rushed backwnrd a short distance
to be sure of their own safety and then
heard a thud that was anything but
like the crash of a. car would make,
they hastened to the sump and there
found the body of a man lying limply
over a beam.
He wus lifted up and fouml to be
gasping faintly for breath. A great
jagged wound in his forehead was
bleeding. The two young men got a
stretcher, but before Lynn could be
placed on it he breathed his last. The
engineer was at once apprised of what
had happened and tho body was raised
to the surface and placed in the engine
room, where it was Identified as that
of Patrick Lynn, who worked in the
mine about a year ago and who had
been loitering about the shaft a good
part of the afternoon.
HIS FATHER NOTIFIED.
The father of the young man, John
Lynn, boards on Hickory street nnd
he was apprised of the death of his
son. He arrived at the shaft at 6.30
but did not have the remains removed.
Ho did not know that he could take
them to his boarding house and did not
know where else they could be housed.
Soon afterwards the remains were tak
en to Cuslck's undertaking establish
ment on Washington avenue w here th'e
father called several times during the
night and nsked to bo allowed to re
move them to his boarding place, he
having made arrangements to have the
burial occur from that place. It was
deemed best, however, to allow the
body to remain at the undertaking es
tablishment until Coroner Longstreet
holds an Inquest this morning.
It is probable that It will never be
known just how th'e young man got
Into the shaft but tho circumstances
surrounding his death point to self
destruction. He was perfectly famil
iar with the shaft and Its surroundings
and the opening to the shaft is well
lighted, so that It would have been
difficult for him to have stumbled Into
tho opening even had the gates leading
to the shaft been open. Henry Stacht,
the gate man, avers that the gates
were not only closed but also locked
on the side from which. Lynn got Into
MUST HAVE CRAWLED UNDER.
It was the west side of the shaft
down which Lynn dronned his 2D5 feet
'to death and he approached It from the
north. The gate was locked and he evi
dently did not climb over It for the
dust and flne particles of culm on the
top rail were not disturbed In the
slightest after the accident. The bot
tom of the gate Is about two feet from
the ground, and Lynn could easily
have crawled under It, although It
would have been equally as easy to
climb over for the gate Is not high.
For some time Lynn has not worked
and yesterday afternoon when he
made his appearance about the shaft
he was dressed partially In working
attire as if he was in search of employ
ment. About E o'clock he went to the
wash house where several miners were
cleaning up prior to going home, and
asked them if they had any food in
Henry Stochl after locking the gates
at the head of the shaft, saw Lynn
sitting on a beam near the door of the
engine house, and a few minutes later
Engineer Fred Davis saw tho young
man come Into the engine room.
ASKED FOR A DRINK.
He asked where he could get a drink
of water, and was given the necessary
information by the engineer. Less than
five minutes afterwards he was In
formed that there was a dead body at
tho foot to be taken up, and when it
was brought to tho surface he recog
nized the features as, those of tho
young man who had spoken to him a
few minutes before.
Nearly every bone in Lynn's body
was broken. He had not had any reg
ular place of abode for some time.

OISPUTB OVER HORSES.
Lends to n Charge of Grand Larceny
Against Tcrdinnndo ArigonI.
Ferdinado ArigonI, the well-known
Italian hotelkeeper and contractor, was
arrested yesterday on a charge of
grand larceny. It was alleged that
ArigonI stole four horses and two carts
from Vlto Qlrardo, a man who lives
In Dunmore. The alleged theft waa
made Thursday night.
Qlrardo had the horses In his cus
tody at Mooslc, Ferdinado went to the
barn at 6 o'clock Wednesday evening
and drove the horses to the North End.
A search warrant waa tlrst Issued
by Alderman Millar and the horses
found and sent for safe keeping to
I'alne's livery. Angonl was then ar
rested. Hp was given a hearing at 5 o'clock
last evening before Alderman Millar.
Olrardo, the prosecutor, was represent
ed by ex-Senator M. E. McDonald, and
tho defense by Attorneys John J. Mur
phy, William Vokelek and Boyle and
Arlgonl's defense waa that he owned
the horses. He and Glrardo had been
partners in business at Amsterdam, N.
Y., where they were at work repairing
the Erie canal. At that time the horses
and carts were used under the firm
control. He averred that the partner
ship had not been dissolved; hence he
was not guilty of larceny, but simply
took his own property. Glrardo al
leged that the property belongs to him.
ArigonI was held In $500 ball to ap
pear at court.

Parts of the Cityriorcncc Mission
Rescue Work to He Explained.
The second of tho Crlttenton revival
meetings In the Adams Avenue Armory
was held lasf night. The attendance
was not ns large as at tho preceding
and opening meting on Thursday eve
ning, but this was probably due In
part to the first pleasant night for sev
eral days and to the open-air concert
by Bauer's band.
About 400 persons were in the au
dience, which did not, however, qulto
half fill the large hall, which has been
arranged to seat over 1,000 persons.
The meeting was especially for young
people. They composed a majority of
those present, wind entered heartily
Into the spirit of the service. Fifteen
minutes of congregational singing of
gospel songs, led by Mr. Wallace,-tho
vocalist who accompanies Mr. Crltten
ton, Introduced the service proper and
na usual formed one of the more at
tractive features of the meeting.
Mr. Crlttenton assumed charge of
the service after the song period. He
first asked for quotations from the
Scripture and met with ready response
not only from the older persons pres
ent, but from many younger people
Including boys and girls. As on Thurs
day night, frequently several were on
their feet at once and repeating some
familiar passages. At times and when
some verse suggested a thought to him,
Mr. Crlttenton would himself quote a
passage or passages, and thus continue
the thought suggested to him.
"All Hall the Power of Jesus' Name"
was sung and prayer was offered by
Secretary F. W. PcarSall, of the Rail
road branch of the Young Men's Chris
Mr. Crlttenton then made the an
nouncements of future meetings. This
afternoon at 3 o'clock there will be a
children's meeting. While It will be
particularly for the little folks, a gen
eral Invitation has been extended to
fathers and mothers to attend as what
Mr. Crlttenton will have to say will
be In part directed to parents.
This evening's service ought to at
tract a gathering that will fill every
seat in the armory for It will Include
a recital by Mr. Crlttenton of the story
of his consecration to religious work.
"Consecration" will be the 'topic of his
address, and It will be divided Into
three parts: "The Command; the Pos
sibility; the How."
There will be three Sunday services
as follows: Morning, Jackson Street
Baptist church; afternoon, Providence
armory; evening, Elm Park church.
The Providence armory meeting will
bo a union meeting. That at night in
Elm Park church will Include a de
scription of the Florence Mission Res
cue work. This recital by Its promoter,
whi has been termed "The Merchant
Evangelist," will probably attract a
Mr. Crlttenton stated that while next
week's meetings had not been fully ar
ranged, they would probably be held In
the armory Monday and Tuesday even
ings, while on Wednesday night a fare
well service would take place at Elm
NEVER GO BACK.
A solo, "Beautiful Beckoning
Hnnds," was sung by Mr. Wallace. Af
ter offering a brief prayer he delivered
his usual nightly address. He began It
by a reference to the Moody and San
key hymn, "Over the Lino." Mr. Moody
wrote It after drawing a lino on the
ground during an exhortation with a
young man to consecrate himself to
God. He asked the youth to cross the
line and to let the act be a token that
he would never cross back to the old
Ufa Mr Hfnralv flnnllv snnrwdoil and
then wrote the famous hymn.
"Remember now the Creator In tho
days of thy youth." If we stop and
think that a life that Is not spent In
righteousness Is thrown away. John
Jacob Astor, who owns more real es
tate than any other man In this coun
try, wrote over his own signature re
cently: "My life has been a failure."
Why? Because he had not known his
Savior In the davs of his youth.
"He that covereth his sins shall not
prosper," was a verse upon which Mr.
Crlttenton dwelt at length. He showed
by a free and ready use of other pas
sages, as Is his custom, that a refuge Is
found In the Almighty and a counsel
and confession with Him Is the first re
course for a sin-laden world.
Cards, which read as follows, arc
distributed at the meetings:
I this day give myself to Jesus, and with
Ills help, will hereafter live a Christian
Church or PaBtor preferred
THEY JOIN THE CHURCH.
Many persons wh'o hesitate to make
a publlo avowal sign the cards which
are delivered to the pa&tor of tha

cases the person whose signature the
card 'bears Is prevailed upon to Join
Collections are made at tho meetings
