that They were Alive.
West Naxthoke. Pa.. Feb 0. The
three miners who were hemmed in by
water and supposed to tie droyvneri in
No. 3 colliery of the Susquehanna Coal
Company last Wednesday afternoon,
were rescued alive this morning. The
names of the men are: John W. Kincer,
Wm. Craglc antl M ichacl Schilling. They
eoiild not have lived much longeron ac
count of the scarcity of air.
The men were found by the gang of
resetters at the top of a cross heading,
the highest point they could reach, and
which was only six feet aliove the ele
vation readied by the flood. Here they
had waited in darkness and gloom, bnt
not without hop for rescue. Theyconld
hear the throbbing of the great pumps,
1's'aj feet away. It was not until t a. m
tluit t.eorge Bcndelman managed to
float njsin a raft across thewater which
yet filled tlie Isdtom of the main gang
way. Tin imprisoned men heard him
us he reached the side they were on,
ami faintly came the cry to him: "We
am tip here, ail alive anil waiting for
yon." JU-mk-lman took np the joyous
shout and sent it across the water in
thrilling measures: "1 he men arealive;
they are alive'"
Two other hardy Miners, Anthony
lone and William Itowen. at once
plunged into the murky abyss, wailing
and swimming to the other side, and
soon others followed them. The men
wen- reached and brought to the main
gangway. Milk was given to them as
nourishment, ami at five o'clock they
were carried njsin the shoulders
of the resetters across the yvater. When
the rescuers came to the men they
were rapturously greetisl. the three
miners embracing and kissing them.

Wm. I'ragcl and Michael Schilling lie
come known alamt the mining regions,
the people an intcnvly excited. The
exHrieni-e of the men is most thrilling.
After tlicy had reached a point of com
parative safety from the flof.l they
found that only a slender piece of
w.mnI held back tons of loose coat that
luiil fallen into the month of the
cross-cut. When they found the in
clined cut in the vein anil climticd
npits almost perpendicular passagv they
managed to obtain a piece of loose tira
licr. This they placed across the open
ing of Hie tunnel, anil after getting it
tirnily leilged. cliuilicil upon it for a
seat. There they sat on this piece of
timlier. scarcely three inches wide, for
over four day s. Behind them was the
immense tualy of coal, held in place by
a small piice of "prop." and fearing to
dislodge it. the men dared not even rest
against it. In a short time theirsnpply

men. was able to keep his head in their

and Schilling at times liecame crazy.

sl..;a-with it. lie was rescued and got
back to the perch by Kincer. Schilling
was more easily managed, although he
was sobbing con-tantty.
Wednesday passed and Thursday
came, and then the men lost track of
time. The lirst welcome sonnd reach
ing their ears was the "plunk" of the
pump. The lirst message lat-.veen them
and their rescuers reached them at
three o'cl.ick yesterday morning.
The work of reaching the imprisoned
miners was daringly accomplished by
los.rge llendelinan. who. when he found
bis progress stopjied by low timbers,
dipped his raft under them following
by diving under, lie lost his hat and
miner's lamp, bat Win. lt.men. who
was swimming the gangway, passed his
lamp through a break over the timla-nt
and Bender yvent on with his search.
When he found Kincer, Cragin and
Schilling they wen- np in the cross
heading perched on a "legging" on the
highest point they could get in the
mine This was but a trifle more than
six feet als.ve the elevation reached by
the flood, and here they had been with
out f.Msl since Wednesday morning.
At half-nast five o'clock the water
was down enough to let the men out by I
floating them one at a time on the raft, j
to the ll led gangway. I lie pnysi

It was forwanled to the Czar through
