are working to recover their bodies. The
bodies of nineteen hare been recovered.

Whea Death Swooped Down.
About thirty of the men killed belonged
to the A. U. U. W.. in which order they
were insured for 2,0U) apiece. The greater
part of the men who have perished are
covered with debris at the seventh level,
where they were gathered awaiting the
ear. Work is being pushed with all possible
speed to uncover the dead. There is no
fire in tho mine. The explosion is sup
posed to have come from a blast setting
fire to the dust, making a dust explosion,
since the mine was supposed to be free
from gas, being well ventilated. This is
tho third disastrous explosion in this
vicinity. In 18S1 No 2 mine. Rocky Moun
tain, exploded, killing thirty-six Chinese
and four whito men. In the spring of

Total Number or Dead Is Sixty.
The total number known at this writ
ing to have lost their lives is sixty, seven
of whom were killed outside of the mine.
Of the dead fifty-one are married men and
nine yonug men and boys. Up to this
time the bodies of the following out of a
total of fifty-three who met their death in
the mine have been recovered and turned
over to their relatives: W. B. Clark,
John Morris, D. Laurie, G. Hyde, John
Locke, W. H. Grieves and Samuel Clay
single; Samuel Hutchinson, William
Morris, Thomas Booth, B.n L Cote,
Charles Clark, Willard Brown, James
Limb and Fred Mirgan all men of large
families. This leaves thirty-eight enre
covered bodies in the mine.
A Scene That Brccara Deeeriptioa.
The timbering is largely blown out and
and the walls and rouf of the whole in
terior are wrecked and shattered so that
the volunteer searching party of eighteen
now seeking tho bodies of their comrades
are every moment in danger of being
buried. A coroners jury has been em
panelled which views the remains as
brought out and turned over to relatives.
The agonizing screams of widows and
children about the mouth of the mine
begfrtn description. The mules that
were in the mine are so burned that they
have to be removed on account of the
odor before the work can proceed.

tory, secretary of the National Associa

formed for the purpose of bringing pres

The department resented congressional
interference with what it considers it pre

Two Hundred Spaniards Reported Killed
In a Battle.
NEW York, March 23. A special dis
natch to a morning paper from Nassau,
N. P., says: Additional news continues
to be received from Cuba of insurgent
victories in the east. The latest and most
startling yet received is to the effect that
Guillcrmon Moncada, the negro leader of
a band near Guantanamo, is one of the
few men who want to turn the revolu
tion Into a race war. It is also reported
that Guillermon Moncada susprised a
large detachment of Spanish troops near
Gnantanamo recently and completely
routed them. In this battle, it is said,
200 Spaniards were killed and wounded.
This was followed by cruel and inhu
man treatment of the Spaniards by Man
cada's forces. This is probably tho same
battle reported by the Spaniards a a vic
tory for their troops led by Colonel San
toclide. At that time it was reported
that fifty of the insurgents were killed.
There was but one white man in Monca
da' s detachment. After the battle he or
dered this man to leave the camp, saying
that the whites failed to free Cuba in the
last war and that now independence
would be secured by the negroes. Mon
rovia's idea seems to be to make another
San Domingo of Cuba. His attitudo is
deplored by the sympathizers of the revo
It Is reported that some attempt will
soon be made by the leaders to form a
provisional government. Nothing has
yet been heard of Jose Marti. Notwith
standing the talk of the Spaniards or the
good faith of Maceo, he is now in the in
terior with the insurgents. Nothing has
been heard ajthe proposed expeditions
from Porto Rico and other points. The
assertion that the Allianca displayed the
English flag when fired on is regarded as
a mere subterfuge.

past few weeks thieves have been enter-

; The entrance was made through a cellar

tied a string to the trigger and placed the
hammer back, then attached the gun to
the cellar door in such a manner that the
' gun would be discharged into the body of
' the person opening the cellar door. Ross
then made his exit through another dour.
Mrs. Ross not being at home. hen she

Maeh Talk of Whippiog Somebody.
The state department continues to oc
cupy tho centre of the stage. There is
much talk of war. But such talk does
not necessarily mean that there Is going
to be war. Such talk is generally heard
when anything like the Allianca incident
or tbe Great Britain and (Nicaragua af
fair occurs. It does not cost, anything
to talk about war. The subject is always
an interesting one. And besides a great
many people in this country are spoiling
for a fight, anyhow. No less an authori
ty on internacioa-il aiT.iirs than Judge
Timothy J. Campbell, of New Yorks, says
that "a bit of a scrap would do this coun
try good." Ex -Congress man Stewart
from Illinois, echoes Judge Campbell's
statement and goes farther.

BRITISH DEMAND ON NICARAGUA.
A Semi-Official statement Regarding the
same Americaua Mot starred.
The facts about the British demand on
Nicaragua are beginning to come out. A
cable from Loudon says: "Tho following
scmt-ollicial stateiutmt was obtained by
the Associated Press last night in regard
to the trouble between Great Britain and
Nicaragua: General Barrios, the Nica
ragua envoy, left London when the Brit
ish demands were made for compensation
in the sum of 13,10 for the expulsion
from Bluulields rt Hatch, tbe British con
sular ageut tUero, ind also for tbe ap
pointment of a commission to adjudicate
the damages sustained by the persons and
property of British subjects expelled from
the Musquo reservation.
Gcucral Harriot's, it is understood, has
since submitted the matter to the govern
ment o( the United States with the object
of enlisting sympathy and aid. The state
ment that Great Britain stipulated that
no citizen of tbe bnitcd States should be
a member of the commission mentioned
is inaccurate. It is the opinion in diplo
matic circles here that tho demands of
Great Britain are exceptionally small, and
the aggravation warranted even severer
Sir Julian Paunceforto, the British am
bassador and dean of the diplomatic
corps, wears a smile from tbe time be

This comes of the statement that Great
Britain intends to collect from Nicaragua
the sum of fTj,(XMJ for the expulsion of Mr.
Hatch last year, and has sent a warship
thither with the ostensible purpose of en
forcing tbe collection. Should she at-
tempt to exercise force to obtain the pay
ment of ber claim, tbe bald-headed aagle
would emit a few shrieks, and it that did
not scare the British lion away the result
might be tbe "bit of a scrap" which Tim
