Vienna, Jan 24 — Ati explosion of fire
damp occurred today in the Fort
Schritt mine at Dux in Bohemia. Dis
patches tonight say 80 miners were
killed and scores injured.
The explosion occurred this morning
when the shifts were changing A cage
full of miners was lowered hail way
when the ground trembled, a loud rum
bling report was heard and the lowering
machinery broke. Help was sum
moned, the machinery repaired and the
cage raised. Ten of the occupants were
killed instantly by the shock; 10 euf
fered fractures from which they cannot
recover; five who had broken limbs
and internal injuries, will live. They
were half suffocated by gas rising in the
shaft and no man could live below.
An hour later the superintendent of
the mine and five miners from tbe night
shift went down in the cage. They were
unable to go more than 100 yards, hut
they found 14 dead bodies. Of the 50
men who were waiting for the cage be
low, 10 were killed and 40 partially
crnshed by falling timbers, or half suffo
cated by ioul air.
The dead bodies and the injured were
taken to the top, where the whole min
ing settlement had gathered to watch
the work of rescue. The men brought
up Baid they heard dries and groan*
from the mouth of a gallery about 300
yards from the shaft, and they believed
40 men at work in the gallery were im
prisoned by falling beams.
Another rescue party went down at
once and after three of them were car
ried back to tbe shaft unconscious, pene
trated to the entrance of the gallery.
The entrance was completely block-d
by wrecked woodwork. The rescue
party could see Beveral dead bodies on
men iv the gallery were suffocated or
Twelve miners who worked in the ex
treme interior of the mine are also be
lieved to be dead.
Despite the apparent helplessness of
the aquation, a rescue party ie etill in
the mine, and thousands have gathered
at the pit's miuth.
Wheu the extent of the disaster be
came evident the women of the dead
men's families attempted to mob the
mine officials. The officials sent to Uux

near. When Charleß de LeSßeps, Fon

they asked leave to confer with their
counsel before the resumption of the
proceedings. The accused and their
counsel talked eagerly together. While

mates of all great undertakings are al
ways exceeded. As to any fault which
might be fouud with the plans adopted
f>r the canal, M. Barboux pointed" out
the conflict between the opinions of en
gineers on the Bubject. What could the
company do, he asked, in the face of
conflicting recommendations of equally
eminent engineers.? Figures showing a
profit of 6or 7 per cent on tbe invest

estimates of competent men. Ferdi
nand de Lesseps had never played the
double part attributed to him. 'He had
not concealed the mistake made in the
original estimates of the coßt of the
canal. In 1884 he told the general
meeting of shareholders that G()0,000,0l)0
francs more W"uld be required to finish
the canal. His statement had been co
explicit that those who persisted
in misunderstanding it h<td only them
selves to blame.

committee appointed to investigate the
charges made by Assemblyman Bretz ot

of Los Angeles, reported today. Bretz,
during the vote for United States sena

The committee beg leave to report as
That they have taken and given am
ple time to the matter of of said investi
gation to any and all persons who de
sired to be heard therein, either as to
facts or arguments.
That Thomas V. Cator appeared as
counsel for Assemblyman Bretz and no
one appeared ac counsel for any other
person; and from such consideration
and investigation we find :
That the charge made by Assembly
man Aaron Bretz aa set forth in said
resolution and which waß made in joint
assembly for tbe election of a United
States »?n»tnr in the assembly chamber
on January 18, 1893, was false and un
true in every respect.
That the charges made are groundless
and malicious, inasmuch as froru the
evidence we find no probable cause for
the utterance of tbe words used in said
joint assembly by said Aaron Bretz.
As aforesaid, we find that there waa
not the slightest evidence adduced be
fore said committee that money or cor
rupt means whatever, or that any means
other than those the most honorable
were used to procure the election of
Stephen M. TTnHe»A.Sta.t«« eea-*
We find that not the slightest taint of
corruption or wrong-doing in any re
spect attaches to either lion. Marion
Cannon or Hon. T. J. Kerns in the mat
ter of said election of said United States
Therefore, in view of said facts and in
view of tbe circumstances surrounding
the making of Baid charge, your com
mittee respectfully recommends that
Baid Assemblyman Aaron Bretz should
receive tbe eevereet censure of the as
