awarded te the Frank Owens Hardware
Company of this city. They were In com

of th Dcud Italian, aud the Othr
Ainerlcaim A Floed Frem an Old
Mlna Overwhelm Thrm.
PeTTsriLLK, Pa., April 31. Anether
horror was added Inte Wednesday te the
many hundreds of inlneacctdenU that
have occurred la the mining regions by
the flooding of part of the workings of
the Lytle Ceal Ce.'a colliery, seven
miles from Mlnersvillc By the accident
it is given out that dght men have lest
their Uvea, while these of two ethers
are in jeopardy. Six of these are Ital
ians, and the ethers Americans.
The Italians were engaged in driving
a gang-way 170 feet in front of tbe main
slope, which is down 150 yards. Twe
ethers, named Jehn Zerbe, of Llewel
lyn, nnd Jas. Delbln, of Forestville, ex
perienced miners, were engaged at tim
bering. These are the ones drowned.
Besides these, two ethers, named
Jehn Hugging and Win. Bell, who were
inside at the first, tried te res
cue their companions, and then,
seeing this was futile, endeav
ered te release the mules,
about cn in number, were caught by
the water and tied te n high part of the
gangway, where tliey were imprisoned
in what la called the saddle et the vein.
They ure alive, and can be heard tap
ping en the coal. On hearing this res
cuing parties were at once put at work
cutting a passage way te the interven
ing barrier te rescue them from a higher
level. There are supposed te be fifeeen
feet of solid cool between the rescuing
party and the men. It is expected te
reach thorn between midnight and
morning.
The water that caused the calamity
broke in from an old working, notwith
standing the operators had taken every
precaution te prevent such an accident
by constantly keeping holes driven
ahead te a distance of 2-J4 feet
The water eame in through chute Ne.
4, where two men had been working
during the day, and who quit be
cause it was tee wet te work. An hour
after they went home the water broke
in and caught the men working in the
