DEATH IS PORTION
APPALLING DISASTER, OCCURS
IN A COLLIERY IN WEST
Gas Explosion Is the Cause—Twenty
Three Men Known to Be Bead—
Bodies of All But One Have Been
Recovered—Heroic Rescue Work.
Fairmont, W. Va., March 23.—Twen
ty-three men are known to be dead,
25 injured and several missing and
believed to be dead as the result of an
explosion of gas in the shaft of the
Century Coal company at Century, a
small mining town situated 50 miles
south of Fairmont, on the Belington &
Buckhannon branch of the Baltimore &
Ohio railroad. The explosion took
place at 4:30 Thursday afternoon, but
owing to the telephone wires being put
out of commission by the high winds
details are lacking.
Rescuers at Work.
The Century mine, which is cayned
by Shaw Bros., of Baltimore, Md., is
one of the largest independent opera
tions in northern West Virginia. Over
250 men are employed daily in the
shaft, and had the explosion been an
hour earlier the loss of life would have
been appalling. As it was, there were
but a few remaining in the shaft, the
main body of the miners having quit
work for the day. The giant fan which
furnishes air for the shaft was partial
ly wrecked by the force of the explos
ion, but was repaired immediately and
within an hour after-the accident Su
perintendent Barnes Ward had a relief
gang in the mine. The first trip out
brought ten men—five dead and five
badly burned. They were found in the
main heading, near the bottom of the
shaft. The living could give no details
of the explosion, saying that they were
on their way to the surface when the
explosion took place behind them.
A second expedition immediately
went down and explored the main
heading, which was found to be unin
jured by the explosion, except that the
brattices were blown out. Four more
bodies were found in this heading and
20 injured men were making their way
toward the bottom of the shaft and
brought to the surface 'by the rescuers.
The families'of the dead, wounded
and missing men gathered quickly at
the opening and the pathetic scenes al
ways witnessed at such accidents were
enacted. Several foreign women in
sisted upon going into the mine and
were only prevented from boarding the
cage by force. Many of the women
were still hovering abojit the opening
at midnight, refusing to go into the
camp store or other places to escape
the biting cold.
Twenty-two bodies have been recov
ered. The bodies recovered were torn
and mangled and in many cases burned
from head to foot, making 'the work
of identification very hard.
It has been determined that the ex
plosion was caused by the igniting
of the dust in the mine. The dust
was fired by the sparks from a charge,
of powder, which was exploded to
bring down the overhanging coal. *, 1
~""1 'Death of Cuban Leader."-'^
Havana, March 24.—Gen. Julio San
guily died at his home here Friday.
He gained his military title in the
Cuban insurrection of 1868, rising
from the ranks fy notable bravery and
energy. He also took part in the last
Cuban revolution, but in 1897 he was
captured "by the Spaniards, who tried
and sentenced him to be imprisoned
for life. Sanguily, however, claimed
American citizenship and through the
intervention of the government- at
Washington he was released.
Killed by Headache Powder.
Kpkomo, Ind., March 24. Friday
morning Mrs. John Jefferson swal
lowed a supposed headache powder
that had been thrown on her porch
as an advertising sample. It proved
to be poison and the .woman died in a
tew minutes. ,...' ,..
Wonder If It's
SPENDS DAY IN HAGGLING
HOUSE IS ATTACKED BY A FIT
Devotes Over an Hour to Debate on
Matter of Saving $100 a Year
in Engineer's Salary.
Washington, March 21.—The house
of representatives on Tuesday did
business with a microscope in one
hand and the bill making appropria
tion for the salaries of its officers and
employes in the other. The spirit of
economy in little things were all ab
sorbing. Points of order were made
and many of them were fatal to pro
posed increases in the salaries of of
ficers, janitors, doorkeepers, messen
gers and laborers. A point of order
on one of them which made the salary
of the engineer of the house $720 a
year instead of $820 as proposed,
caused a constitutional debate of more
than an hour. The final' round of the
day was a debate as to whether the
house could get as good packing boxes
as the senate did for its members, and
finally a move was made to eliminate
packing boxes entirely from the per
quisites of members, which failed.
Washington, March 21.—In less
than 20 minutes' time the senate Tues
day voted away $140,000,000 of the
public funds. The sum is carried by
the pension appropriation bill.
Washington, March 22.—The entire
day in the senate was devoted to the
consideration of the railroad rate bill
Senator Culbertson began the pro
ceedings by presenting an amend
ment prohibiting corporations coming
under the operation of the proposed
law from making campaign contribu
tions. Senators Bailey and Dolliver
made speeches reiterating their views
on the rate question and they were
followed by more or less extended re
marks by Senators Tillman, Patter
son, Heyburn and Knox. Senator
Bailey was interrupted in the middle
of his speech by the announcement of
his father's death, and immediately
left the senate chamber. *_
Washington, March 23.—The state
hood bill was taken from the speak
er's table in the house Thursday,
placed in the hands of three selected
conferees, and a request made of the
senate for a conference on the dis
agreeing votes of the two houses. This
action was not accomplished without
many words and votes. It was devel
oped at once, however, that there were
votes enough to carry out the pro
gramme of the leaders.
Washington, March 23—In the sen
ate Thursday Senator Beveridge, as
chairman of the committee on terri
tories, asked for the appointment of
conferees to meet the conferees ap
pointed by the house on the statehood
bill. Senator Foraker promptly ob
jected, and the matter went over for
one day. .,„ ',-/
Washington, March 24.—Senator
Spooner concluded his speech in the
senate on the railroad rate bill and the
fortifications appropriation bill was ta
ken up and passed. The bill carries an
appropriation of $125,000 for the erec
tion of a powder manufactory, and
Senator Daniel spoke at length in
support of the provision. He declared
that the nation was entirely at the
mercy of a powder trust.
Washington, March 24.—The house
again endeavored to legislate with the
brakes on Friday. The result was
some friction and heat, and the speed
in considering the legislative bill was
correspondingly slow. The debate
threw many side lights on the rules of
Noted Chemist Dies.
New York, March 23.—Prof. R. Og
den Doremus, the noted chemist, died
at his home here Thursday, aged 82
years. It was as an expert on the ef
fects of poison, perhaps, that*^Prof.
Doremus was best known.
Murdered by Burglars.
Rochester, N. Y., March 24.—Bank
burglars murdered Edward Pullman,
a constable and night watchman, at
Sodus early Friday. He had caught
them trying to rob the safe of tba
bank of Sodus.

Minneapolis.—Mrs. Amelia Benson, a
prisoner at Central station, attempted
suicide in her cell by hanging herself
to one of the bars with a heavy hand
Minneapolis.—The new Minnesota
code, it appears, omits mention of sev
eral counties, among them being Hen
nepin. There seems to have been a
curious error on the part of some one.
St. Peter.—At its last meeting the
board of county commissioners issued
instructions to Auditor A. H. Freeman
to procure certified lists of all mort
gages owned by Nicollet county resi
dents and filed for record in the coun
ties of Sibley, Brown, Blue Earth and
St. Paul.—The county commission
ers adopted the report of the commit
tee on claims allowing Sheriff Miesen
$500 for his expenses in connection
with the execution of Willian Williams
on Feb. 13. The sheriff put in a bill
for $772, but the committee considered
this excessive and cut it down to $500.
Mankato.—The fruit growers of this
section of the state are to hold a meet
ing in Mankato on the first Monday in
April, for the purpose of forming a
permanent organization. About thirty
fruit growers in Blue Earth county
are back of the movement. L. Z. Smith
of this city was elected president at
at preliminary meeting.
Pine River.—Falling from an organ
stool, Mrs. R. Thorp, of Little Falls,
sustained an injury to her spine which
is very serious and from which she
probably never will entirely recover.
She was playing an organ when the
stool on which she was seated gave
way and she struck the floor very hard.
Minneapolis.—The city of Minneapo
lis wins in the action brought in the
district court to invalidate the appro
priation of $10,000 made by the city
council for a Minneapolis exhibit at the
Louisiana Purchase exposition held in
St. Louis a year ago last summer.
Minneapolis.—It is claimed on good
authority that the Great Northern will
abandon its line between St. Cloud and
Minneapolis on the east side of the
Mississippi river, running all of tis
trains over the Osseo line, turning the
line on the east side of the river over
to the Northern Pacific, thus giving
that company a double track between
St. Cloud and Minneapolis.-
St. Peter.—Fred Zuelsdorf, a car
penter at Henderson, while carrying a
bundle of shingles along a narrow
scaffold twenty feet above the ground,
lost his balance and, to save himself
from falling on his head and shoulders,
jumped from the support. His prompt
action doubtless saved him a fractured
skull, but in alighting on his feet he
broke the small bones in both his
Duluth.—The state dairy and food
department has clashed with Gordon &
Dilworth, manufacturers of fruit jams
and other products, over the question
of coal, tar dyes. The state chemist
found a red aniline dye in a jar of
their blackberry jam, and notified the
retailer that it was illegal. The re
tailer called on the manufacturer, who
refused to take the goods off his hands,
and said the state department was
either mistaken or "grafting."
Hastings.—Arthur Rude, Edward
Otte and George Lytle, who entered
Hanson Bros.' store on the night of
March 12, pleaded guilty to burglary
before Judge F. M. Crosby today and
were sentenced to the state reforma
tory at St. Cloud.
