the terrible explosion iu the coal nunes of
the Southwest Virginia Improvement
Company at Pocahontas, Tazewell Coun
ty, this State. The explosiun occurred at
1 a. m. Particulars are very meagre, and
nothing can lie learned as to how it oc
curred. Over one hundred men arc known
to be killed. Those mines are owned by
a joint stock company composed mo-t!y

Ivxchiu Va., March 13. Alii fforts
to get particulars of the Pocahontas Mine
disaster prove fruitle.-s. Meagre reports
to railroad officials here indicate that the
explosion lifted a part of the mountain,
which settled back immediately, rilling
the tiinm Is and destroying everything in
them. The tight force at work in the
mines numbered nearly 200. A report
fays the town of Pocahontas is dcnior
uli.ed, and the scene beggars descrip
tion. AN AITAI-I.tNii SrKfTACI.E.
Lv.Nciinri(,, Va., March 13. Further
intelligence from Pocahontas represents
the work of destruction at the coal mines
as horrible to contemplate. There were
one hundred and tifty men in the
mine at the time of the explosion, not
one of whom is believed to have escaped.
Those not killed outright by the terrible
force of the explosion most likely per
ished from after-damp. The cause of the
explosion is not yet definitely ascertain
ed, as the entrances to the mine are all
full of bad air, but the presumption is
that one miner .-truck fissure gas. Several
parties ventured into the minis
this morning but could not
long endure the foul atmosphere. A
number of bodies were discovered,
horribly mangled, some of them with
their heads torn from the trunks, an 1
others were with the limbs all gone, pre
senting an appalling spectacle. Til'
work of destruction was not coniiiii 1
entirely to the interior of the mini s,
but the houses two or three hundred
feet removed from til,; mines were
overturned, and in several instances.
The large ventilator of the Southwest
Improvement Company was blown to
atoms and the mines cannot be entered
until another is constructed for the pur
pose of lreeing the atmosphere of the
suffocating fumes. This work is now
progressing speedily. A large force is
engaged on the outside of the mines con
structing colllns and perfecting other ar
rangements fur the interment of the dead
miners, most of whom were foreigners,
six Honrs j!i:c)V):iti:i).
The latest Intelligence Is that an ex
ploring party entered the mine a short
distance and brought out six bodies in a
frightfully mutilated condition. There
is no hope that any will be rescued alive.

The latter refused, whereupon Thomp

Coy struck Thompson's pistol hand and
the pistol went off, taking effect iu Fos
ter's leu' below the knee. K.ipid tiring
from all ensued. King Fisher fell at the
tirst lire, with one ball through his head
just above the left eye, one through the
heart, and one through tho knee. His
own pitol was not discharged. Thomp
son received one shot in the left eye, one
in the temple and one through the abdo
men. They fell side by side. Thompson
continued to shoot as he fell. Of the

had his left leg shattered below the knee,

The greatest confusion prevailed in

removed the dead bodies to the jail, where
an hi'iuest was held. The jury returned
a verdict to the effect that Thompson and
Fisher came to their deaths from pistol

Coy. They further find that the killing
was done in self-defense, the lives of the

Lively Scene Witnessed at the Breaking
Up of the Ice.
Chicago, Iu.., March 13. The recenl
thaw has produced an effect in the bar
bor which is rather astonishing In view o!
the inactivity of the season up to this
time. Varlv a dozen tug-boats steair.ee'
bout the river, transferring craft froir
one point to another, towing them to tin
different shipyards for spring repairs, or to
points further do wn the river where access
to the lake w ill be more easy when naviga
tion is opened for the season. Along the
docks from Clark street to Twelfth street
everything was bustle and activity. The
sound of the calker's mallet and the car
penter's hammer came from the deck of
even- vessel. Steam was raised on a num
ber of lumber-barges, and their tires will
not be put out again this season, as they
will be kept in constant readiness to de
part for east-shore ports when the word
is received that Lake Michigan is clear of
"If this kind of weather lasts," said a
vessel-owner yesterday, "I believe we
will have a comparatively early Spring
an how, despite the long and severe win
ter we have just experienced."
others arc not as hopeful of an early
opening. The lake unquestionably con
tains more ice at the present time than it
1ms for many years past. This is demon
strated by t he fact that the propellers ply
ing between Milwaukee and ('rand Haven
and Milwaukee and I.udlngton have been
unable to force a passage for nearly two
weeks. The propellers Michigan and Wis
consin, in all probability the best i"e
breakers ever constructed for winter
navigation on the upper lakes, are at
present Imprisoned in the ice off (irand
Ilaven, and are unable to move, lie
ports from all points, as far down as
Point St. Ignaee and up to MichiganCity,
show that there is ice everywhere, rang
ing from six inches to two feet iu thick
ness. Oaiy a few days ago the tug Arctic
of this port, left here for (irand Haven,
to break a passage forthcimprisonedpro
pellors off that port, but she did not iret
farther than P.acine. Her muster said
that it would be impossible for his boat
to proceed fartln-r. The Arctic has been
in service on the lake for three years, and
this is the first time the weather has
been too severe for her to perform the
service for which she was built.
"Taking all these facts Into considera
tion," said a marine man, "I do not an
ticipate a very early opening; in fact, I
believe there will not be a general move
ment before the 1st of May."
"W hat are the prospects forthe season,
judging from the present signs?''
"only lair; but there is no telling
liat may turn up. It is safe to pre
dict, however, that the season will be a
busy one. The lumber crop, if I utn in
formed correctly, will be unusually large,
while we all know that there is more
grain in store here and throughout the
Wist and Southwest than we can ship
tills season. The iron ore trade promises
good returns, lly the way, a large num
ber of season charters have been 'made iu
the latter trade during the past winter.
The rates paid are only fair. Lumber
freights will not exceed those paid to
vessels at the opening of last season, and
grain freights will, most likely, fall below
the opening rates of last Spring."

A railroad mau who had tried to get
negroes to Work on the St. Louis & Cairo
tncks above town states that he found it
difficult to do so this week, the excuse be
ing given by some of the negroes that they
didn't hive time because they had to come
to Cairo for nt'ions. A well known negro
woman living in the neighbirhool of
Fouit'jentu street, came down town Wed
ueslay and got a basketful! of rations. She
went home and immediately sent out her
three children, her father and her sister's
husbind, all living in the same house with,
herself, each with a sick or basket and
nearly ail of them were supplied as she
had been. One negro who could bo con
victe i a dozen times a week of vagrancy,
gut a lot of meal, bacon aud potatoes; and
meeting one of his "pals" replied to the
question what he weuld dg with the stuff,
tint he could feed the meal to his chick
ens and trade the bacon and potatoes off
for some tobacco. Beech Ridge precinct
was well represented at the U. S. pap
bradqtiarteis. One negro who had been
Ik re and received a liberal lot of rations
about a week before and who received sb
other 1 t Wednesday, is known to have at
home not less than five hundred pounds of
biconof his own production; another who
a!j ) received "aid" his a fine farm of eight
acres of his own, together with a span of
mules, farming implements, home, etc.;
and four or five others who were seen to
laf about the levee with sacks and bas
kets, waiting tor an opportunity to make a
raid on the ration?, were known to have
brought wagon load after wagon load of
corn into tnis city during the last month or
two and some of them carried away not le68
than four hundred dollars as the price of
their corn. Thus it seems that while in the
ci'y the most worthless, lazy class of negres
and the least worthy "white trash" aro the
beneficiaries of these wholesale, public dis
tributions of food, in the country they are
the comparatively well-to-d ) negroes, who
come to town after ratious just because
they can get them for nothing.
THE RED CROSS.
The Red Cross relief expedition on the
Josh. V. Throop arrived at the wharf to-day.
This enterprise is noteworthy for tho clnr-
acterof the relief afforded and for the who
discrimination with which It is applied.
The object in view is to enable refugees to
jro back into their homes with such an outht
of bedding, clothing and furniture, 'as will
make them comfortable until they are in a
situation to keep themselves. The Throop :
was stocked with a supply of clothing, I
bedding, fuel and medical supplies at
Evansvillo by the agents of the Red Cross
Association. Prominent among whom were
Mis3 Clara Barton, President of the Nation
al Association; Capt. Coghill, of Sf. Louis;
Rev. E. I. Calvin, of Chicagu; and Dr. J. B.
Hubbell, Field Agent of tho Association.
The outfit whs complete. The stores abund
ant in quantity and judiciously assorted,
contained everything that tho wants of des
titute people could suggest.
The Throop left Evansville on Saturday
and has stopped at every point on the way
to Cairo where there seemed to be any need
for aid, issuing directly trom the boat, or
leaving iu the hands of competent commit
tees, the supplies most needed by the suffer-
in" families along the route. At Shawuec-
towu, Mt. Vernon, Siuithland aud other
points coal was left to supply the wants of
all who were out of fuel aud uuable to pur
chase. Families were supplied with bed
ding and clothing at West Franklin, Mt.
Veruou, Ross' Landing, Weston, Caseyville,
Ford's Ferry, CNve-iu-R ck, Hurricane,
Elizabethtown, Cirrsville, Golconda and
Smithland. The boat slopped long enough at
Metropolis, Joppa, Newj Liberty and other
points to have committees examine into
tho wants of the people and to make out
requisitions which aro to bj filled on tho
return trip. Tho work done under the
direction o the Re-d'Cross is always prac
ticable. Medical supplies were liberally dis
tributed along the route. Money was left at
every point where money seemed to bo the
thing to relieve peculiar classes of suffering
not otherwise provided agaiust. 1200 was
left at Shawneotown, 500 at Caseyvillo ami
other sums varying ia amount at nearly
every point. Tho work is largely in the
bauds of ladies, and the committees ftp
pointed to distributo stores consist almost
exclusively of ladies. It is believed that

not to txpeud a pinny to undeserving
