AN APPALLING DISASTER.
ONE HUNDRED MEN BURNED TO
DEATH IN A COAL MINE.
The Explosion Blocked the Shaft and
Those Who Escaped Had to Climb Out of
the Mine Unaided-I1artrending Scenes
at the MinsC.
KANSAS CITY, Jan. 8.-A Journal
special from McAllister, Indian Terri
tory, says: A report has rea!hed here
from shaft No. 5, of the Osage Coal and
Mining Company at Krebs, that a terri
ble explosion occurred there at 5 o'clock
last evening from the effects of which
two hundred lives will probably be lost.
It was just before the day shift changed
off and came out of the mine for sup
per when a puff of smoke was seen to
escape from the mouth of the single
shaft to the mine, and immedialely fol
lowing this therc was heard a terrible
report followed by a rumbling as if of
Men at the top of the shaft at once
sounded the alarm and made prepa
rations to send down a reseuing party,
but founa that tile mouth of tie shaft
had been completely closed up by
debris. When the messenger left iotli
ing had been (lone toward getting the
men out except to orgainze a relief part y
which was to begin at once on the do
bris. The Times special from McAllis
ter, Indian Territory, says: Twenty
tour hours have elapsed since the ter
rible fatal explosion in the Osage lilne
at Kreb's, but it is still impossible to
even estimate the nmntiber ( vi:tims.
The number who camte p aliv alte-r
the explosion is still unknown aid car
be determined only by a hotiuse to house
canvass, which is uow being nide as
rapIdly as possible. From tho facts

THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE.
A Memorial Touching the Deprommiom of
WAIINWrON, Ja. 15.-The State
'residents (of the Farmers Alliance at
their late meeting here )repared a mem
orial culling attention to the universal
depression in all departments of agri
cultural industry that have oppressed
the farmers of the United States with
gravest concern and alarm. Despite
the fruitfulness of the soil, favorable
climate, fuithful appilcation and indtus
try, Irrespective of seasons and harv
ests, the price of farms and farm pro
ducts are constantly depreciating In
The memorial continues that patient
and earnest investigation of this ano
malous condition of affairs has im
pressed the farmers of the country that
the evils thus clogging and paralyzing
their energies are largely due to the
discriminating inequalities in the gov
ernmental policy whsch is the legiti
mate outgrowth of partial and unfriend
ly legist.t.ion. In their organized cap
acity, comprising thirty-eight States
and ten territories, the alliance had ad
opted a declaration of its principles, a
copy of which is submitted, and which
they believe, if enacted into laws, will
restore the agricultural industry to its
true and just position among the great
industries of the country and conserve
to the best interests of the public good.
They call attention to the necessity
of immediate legislative action for the
fin,tcial relief to business interests of
the country. 'They assert that the pres
ent financial system is inherently defec
tive and incompatible with the genius
and spirit or American institutions and
in contlict with the fundamental princi
ples of government. It was born of ex
igencies of a mighty civil war and is
pure: a 1;ilItary expedient, which,
while ir, saved the li ft of the nation in
war, h.is d(monstrated that it is not
the sy-tem for the prservaion and
perieejoi (f national life in peace.

WAsHINUTON, Jan. 7.-Chairman
Webster's call for the meeting of his
State committee of the defunct g. 0. p.
for the 7th instant has occasioned quite
a stir among the braves of the "bread
and butter brigade" from South Caro
lina now in Washington. They claim
the coming address of Webst.er will
knock the spots out of J. Ilendrix Me
Lane, Vice President Clayton and the
Rev. R. W. Memminger's side show of
the g. o. p , ;I s address and the call for
the State Convention April 12, In Co
Tom Miller was questioned on this
subject last night in the lobby of the
Metropolitan Hotel, but he refused to
discuss the matter further than to say
he would not attend the meeting of the
Webster-Cunningham and Miller's
committee on the 7th. While Tom was
reticent, one of his lieutenants, near by,
talked quite freely, and his conversa
tion, though unique, was interesting.
Said he: "Congressman Miller will not
attent the meeting of the executive
committee on tho 7th. You see if
twant for dat McLane address, cussin'
all we good, true Publicans, Miller
would (lone resign him place on do
Webster committeo but he is 'fraid if
he resign now him act will help dat
McLane gang, en doy is down on ebry

see," he continued in his peculiar dia
lect, "IL.-truiph is using de dist' torney
office is do ingine of suppression on my
race. A kitllud man hab no show in
(to 'Nited States Court."
'The Millerite lighted a very po2r
cigar, and continue 1: "Congressman
