EAU CLAIRE, WIS., June 28.—Ernie
French and Will Hoeppner, aged about
22 years, are deadly rivals. They are,
It is said in love with the same fair
dame. However that may be, about two
months ago the young men met, words
which lead to blows were passed. In
the fight that ensued honors were even
ly divided. The combatants were not
satisfied with the result, and very ill
feeling has existed since then. Three
weeks ago French issued a challenge to
Hoeppner to meet him In the ring and
have it out and also to decide who
should have the girl. The challenge
was promptly accepted, the young men
went into training, everything was kept
secret, late Saturday night the seconds
decided to pull off the mill. The prin
cipals were notified, so were about
sixty men about town. At four o'clock
this morning all hands left the city by
various routes leading to the Wheaton
mill in Chippewa county, just outside
of Eau Claire county. The lads were
stripped and fought with four ounce
gloves, the battle was a fierce one from
the start, both taking the offensive. At
the end of the seven rounds the com
batants were so exhausted they could
hardly stand up. The spectators had
to interfere to prevent a slaughter. The
referee called the fight a draw. Ernie
French is a son of Dr. E. C. French, a
prominent citizen, and William Hoepp

and trunk manufacturer.

The polling booths were opened all

A letter published to-day from Hon.
Matias Romero, Mexican minister at
Washington, resigning his post on ac
count of an article published in an
official Journal during the pendency of
the Guatemalan question and which
Minister Romero felt to be severe in its
Judgment of his views regarding the
proper settlement of that question.
Minister Romero reviews his patridtic
labors In behalf of the country, often
at great personal cost and inconven
ience. He adfds:
"I have continued In my post, believing
that my long residence in the United States,
my knowledge of Its public men, and, above
all, the kind welcome I have fortunately been
given by all classes in that country, would
enable me to lend effective services to Mexico,
but if the incident referred to or any other,
has caused me to lose the confidence of my
government, I shall not remain a single day
longer in that post, and shall regard It as
an especial favor that I be relieved of so
burdensome an employment in which It is
necessary above all to have the confidence
and the decided support of my government."
Minister of Foreign Relations Marascal, in
replying to Minister Romero, assures him
of the entire confidence of the government,
and says that the article in the official jour
nal was made necessary by an editorial in
an opposition paper, which had availed itself
In making a rude attack on the government
of the ministers' arguments, and that a recti
fication in the official journal did not in
volve any reproach, but was only an explicit
contradiction of statements made by the op
position papers. In conclusion. Minister
Marascal urges Minister Romero to put aside
the fears which his delicacy have inspired
and continue serving the republic with his
accustomed abnegation and zeal.
Minister Romero wa£ interviewed tonight
to see if he had reconsidered his resignation,
in view of the flattering terms of the letter
of the foreign relations minister, but he said
he could say nothing. $

Oklahoma Farmer Arrested for

WICHITA, Kan., June 28.—Walter N. Ow

yesterday to serve a term in the penitentiary
at Leavenworth for counterfeiting. The case,
to some extent, is a remarkable one. Pre
vious to his arrest he had always borne a
good reputation. Two years ago he was a
juror in the United States court here and
tried a counterfeiter. During the progress
of the trial counterfeiters' tools were exhib
ited and evidence introduced showing how
false moneys were coined. Owens examined
the tools closely and listened to the evidence
attentively. After the conclusion of the trial

and Prince Georgi Brovltch is a Christian.
The recall of the former Christiian governor
of Crete, Caratheodary Pasha and the ap

Abdullah Pasha, who was implicated in the
Armenian troubles, fanned into flame the
smouldering discontent of the Cretan Chris

WASHINGTON, June 28.—Senator
Harris left today for Chicago to be
present at the Democratic silver con
ference which will be held there be
ginning Tuesday next under the aus
pices of the Democratic Bimetallic or
ganization. He is chairman of this
organizaton and has been since it was
Instituted In this cty a year ago.
Speaking of the purpose of the con
ference, Senator Harris said It had been
called in order to afford the silver
Democrats an opportunity to compare
views and look the ground over pre
paratory to the national convention
and that it would probably continue
daily until the beginning of the conven
tion. He also said the meeting would
not be confined to members of the bi
metallic organization, but that there
would be representatives present'from
every state delegation favorable to sil
ver. Further than this, the senator de
clined to commit himself as to the
purpose of the meeting, but It is learn
ed from an authoritative source that
the. silver Democrat n.*gard this con
ference as a very important affair.
The organization under whose aus
pices the meeting is called has been
laboring in season and out for the pro
motion of the silver cause within the
Democratic ranks. They have had
their headquarters at.Senator Harris'
house, and from that quarter have con
ducted a correspondence with chosen
representatives in all parts of the
country, to whom have been entrusted
the organization of the silver forces
not in every state only, but in every
county in every state in the union
where it was considered possible to ef
fect the lodgement of a silver idea. The
movement grew cut of the meeting
held at the Metropolitan hotel in this
city last summer, at which the plans

The purpose of the i nte-convention
meeting is to so solidif f the silver or
ganization as to Tender it thoroughly
effective in the execution of the plans
of the silver leaders in the convention,
and to also prevent tho encroachment
of the gold forces. Il'-iad been their
purpose to discuss the platform to be
adopted and also to consider the avail
ability of candidates. There has been
much correspondence bearing upon
these two points. The plan has been to
keep candidates in the background un
til the conference could be held, with
the view of having the conference free
to choose. This has proved impracti
cable and it is understood that the
leaders in the movement fear that they
will be unable to control in this mat
ter as they had at one time hoped they
might do. They still hope, however,
to be practically able to make the plat
form before the convention meets.

ed In the list being United States Senators
Jones and Stewart, W. H. Harvey ("Coin"),

LONDON, June 29.—1n an article on the
recent Canadian elections, the Times con
siders the Immediate introduction of free

While ninety miners were at work in

all of the men perished. About forty

Aside from these there may be other
English-speaking miners among the
unfortunates. Thirty Polanders and
Hungarians were entombed, and It is
thought the total number of bodies in
the mine will' reach 100. '
The men were at work propping up
the roof when the fall occurred. The
alarm was immediately given by the
ringing of the fire bells, and rescuers j
were put to work without delay. At 3 i
o'clock this afternoon the first bodies \
were found In the slope, some distance ■
from the plane where the men had !
been working. More than two-thirds j
of the victims were married men and j
leave families. Among them were Act
ing Mayor Langaji, who was Inside
superintendent of the mine, and J. H.
Linott, a ward councilman.
About two weeks ago the surveyors
reported to General Superintendent
Law that the
MINE WAS "SQUEEZING"
and that unless steps were immediate
ly taken to timber it a cave-in or fall
might be looked for. Supt. Law lost !
no time, but at once put a number of '
men at work to brace the falling roof.
The "squeeze" continued, however, and
yesterday the situation became alarm
ing. In the afternoon a slight fall oc
curred and the men who were at work
had to retreat before it. A consulta
tion of mine officials was then held and
It was decided that heroic measures
would have to be resorted to to pre
vent heavy damage to the mine.
Inside Superintendent Langan gave
instructions that the most experienced
miners should be secured. Expert tim- I
ber men put in an appearance at that
hour and were soon lowered into the
workings. They made their way to
Red Ash vein, 1,500 feet down the
slope. The work of propping proceed
ed rapidly until 11 o'clock when an
other fall occurred. It made a low,
rumbling noise, and the flying coal and
debris drove the men back. Then the
"squeeze" ceased again and the men
thought It was safe to resume work.
They labored on until 3:20 o'clock when,
so it Is presumed, the roof fell In with
out warning, making a tremendous

the incline when the fall occurred. 1
The falling rock and coal filled up the
slope and the adjoining gangway a.
completely shutting off all avenues of
The alarm was first given by Water
Carrier John Sheridan, who, with Wil
liam Rechard and Thomas Gill, were
the only ones to escape of the whole
party who entered the mine last night.
He was on his way up the slope to get
some fresh water for the men and when
about 100 feet from the foot of the shaft
was knocked down by the concussion..
He was badly cut and bruised by flying
coal and rock. He lay unconscious for"
ten minutes and then came up the shaft.
The concussion was so great that it
was heard, for miles around. The
foundations of nearly every building
in Pittston were shaken and windows
and doors rattled as in a tornado. In
the houses nearer to the mine, persona
were thrown from their beds. The first
thought was that a great earthquake
had occurred and the inhabitants rush
ed from their houses. The ringing of
the fire bells and the shrieking of the
big mine whistle told the story.
Crowds of people gathered about the
mouth of the shaft and numbered
thousands by daybreak. Stalwart men
stood appalled and frantic women, who
had husbands or sons tn the doomed*
mine, waited In despair. One mother
cried out that she had two sons bel^w.
Another was the wife of one of the
unfortunates, and had nine helpless
children at home. Many knelt on the
ground and in voices broken with sobs
implored Divine Providence to restore
their loved ones alive.
When it was given out that there wad
little or no hope of rescuing the m>>nr
alive, women and girls fainted and werer
borne away senseless.
The work of rescue was prompt and)
efficient. The best miners who remain-* 1

The rescuers were divided into three
relays of 40 men each under the direct
ion of Mine Foreman Alex. McMullin..
The men worked as they had never be
fore worked, clearing away the debris
in the slope with energy.
They made good headway consider
ing the difficulties they had to contendi
with, and at 3 o'clock this afternoon*

7,000. Ropes were stretched around the<
shaft, and only mine oilicials were al
lowed to enter the enclosure.
Young Sheridan, the water boy, who
had such a narrow escape, tells a thrill
ing tale of the disaster. He thinks,
there was an explosion of gas which
blew dawn the newly erected timbers;
and caused the cave-in. When he left;
the mine to go out of the slope and get
water, those inside had no apprehen
sion of a fall or a "squeeze." Every
thing was working nicely, and the ny n
expected to be out of the mine withla
another hour. "The report cf the fall," 1
says the boy, "was like a hundred can
nons and the force of ft blew me fully,
twenty-five feet. I was hurled againsti

hit me back of the head; the wound

Richards and-Gill, who were on their,
way out after timber, concur with
Sheridan that the concussion was ter
rific. They were knocked off their feet
and banged against some brattice
work. They cannot conceive the possi
bility of anybody being in the wreck
and escaping with his life.
Supt. Law says: "Nobody regrets
this dreadful occurrence more than I
do. It is too early nuw to give any
reason as to the cause of the accident,
but I can assure you that if I thought
there was any danger in the work un
dertaken by the men, not a single ma a
would have been allowed to enter the
j mine with my permission. I don't care
| for the damage to the mine. It is the
great loss of life that gives me bo much,
The breaker of the Twin Shaft
burned down three years ago. There
was over 100 men in the mine at the
time, but all escaped through a sec
ond opening. The lirst great disaster
in the anthracite regtOß was in Septem
ber, 1869, when 120 men perished in the
Avondale mine, this county. The
breaker over the mine caught fire, and
all the men in the mine were suffo
cated. This great catastrophe caused
the legislature to pass a law compelling
mines to have two openings. But when
a cave-in occurs in a mine and the men
i are surrounded on every side by debris,
j it makes little difference how many
i openings there may be. They cannot
I escape, even if spared by the fall.
The report that two bodies had been
: found in the mine was proved tonight
ito have been premature. Up to 9
o'clock no bodies had been found. At
that hour all hope of finding any per-
I son alive had been abandoned.
Supt. Lathrop, of the Lehigh
Valley Coal company, who Is an
authority, says it will be ten days be T
fore the bodies are reached. During
the late hours of the afternoon the
searchers made but little progre.%, be
cause the part of the slope upon Which
! their energies were bent was "work
ing." The heaviest timbers were like
straws under the heavy pressure from
above. At 11 o'clock tonight the situa
tion at the mine was unchanged. The
rescuers were hard at work but mak
ing little progress. Supt. Miller has
given orders that the rescuers must
proceed with great caution now, as the
rock they are laboring under is "work
ing" more or less. There is danger
that, in hurrying the work, other lives
may be lost.
A conference of prominent mine sup
erintendents from all over the Wyom
ing Valley was held tonight, and the
situation in the mine was discussed.
The conclusion was reached that to
prevent further loss of life, the work
of rescue must proceed with care. It
is also the unanimous beilef of the
superintendents that the mine is now
a tomb, and that it will be some days
before the rescuers reach the bodies
At 12:25 o'clock there was another
fall in the slope. It drove the rescuers
back. The twenty feet of ground they
had gained since 8 o'clock was thereby
lost. At midnight the crowd at the
mouth of the shaft had dwindled to
