. of Ashley, three milaa fmn here, were
thrown Into ths wildest exoltement ye
verday by a rambling sound, whiah waa
heard al over town, and a few aecondt
lata a peroeptibl ahock like an earth
qnake. , People nnhed into the itreeta
from houses and itores.
. , ' Not before half an bow waa the oanae
explained. Then it waa found that an
' area of nearly a iqnare mile Just out
aide of Ashley, over Baltimore vein No.
alope of the Lehigh and Wilkeabarre
company, had nbsided, occasioning the
rumble and shook. The report spread
in quickly and the acene that followed
waa simply awful. Women whoae hus
band were at work in the mine rushed
out there bareheaded, followed by their
children and a great crowd of men and
Burled A lire.
The sunken area is at Mnffet's Patch,
one and one-half miles from the center
of Ashley. Ths ground has gone down
from a foot to three foot. Numerous
cracks at intervals of only a few feet
extend from ths foot of the mountain
into Hanuver township, a distance of
half a mile, and vary in size from a few
inches to several feet.
Not long after a report came that
there were a number of laborers and
miners inside the mine and imprisoned
by the cavod earth and coal having
blocked up their means of exit. This
caused most heartrending scenes of
anguish. Wives and relatives gave full
play to the wildest grief.
Belief purties were organized at once,
and worked in shifts of ek-lit men.
The accident was probably caused by
robbing the pillars. There was no ex
plosion. The tunnel ouly allows eight
men to work at a time.
The First Victim Rescued.
At about 5 p.m. it was announced
that on of the rescuing parties had suo
oeeded in breaking Uirough one of the
chambers beneath the cave. It waa
8:80, however, before they reached the
first of f-e victims.
He was lying at the bottom of a 80
foot plane, and. in order to rescue him it
became necessary to lower a miner down
with a rope. This was done, and the
charred and blackened form of Anthony
Froyre. the first victim, was hoisted to
the surface. He was still alive, but his
injuries are ukelv to Drove ratal.
When the news spread that Froyr
was iranwi a reeung 01 gloom came
over the miners' hearts, for they realized
toai mere was uiue nope or Ms com
penlona having escaped death. Froyre
is supposed to have wandered away from
tne outers aim wnue trying to hnU a way
vui cauaeu n explosion 01 gas in Some
old chamber. If this explosion extended
to where the other men were their
cnances or escape are verv slight.
The latest reports from the scene of
the disaster is to the effect that the
rescuing party has penetrated to within
sight of two dead bodii-e. but the
gas is so thiok that they were driven
back to the surface. The place is full of
black damp and further approach in
the direction of the victims is impoe-
ioie even wim a surety lamp.
As it looks now very little bono la
ntrtainel that any of the men will be

The men entombed are nenrlv all

hartrenung one. Wives and mothers
crowd close up to dark opening and peer
in as if their love would dispnl the
darkness of the fatal depth, while the
cries of the little one oalling for their
miners niaae toe Bearers sick witli pity.
The men who form the rescuing parties
are stranuvr to fear, and if it m within
th bounds of possibility they will be
