Fi'e has been razing since Sunday
ia bllvis Bros', coal mine at Carbon
Ciiff. The flames started in the air
shaft, whici was consumed, and
from thence were communicated to
the interior of the mine The fire
has since been gradually eating its
way through the portion cf the mine
that is being actively operated, hav
ing already eu'ailed a loss of several
hundred dollars. The mine has bven
c cted and every air vent closed in
hopes ct smothering out tbe llamej,
and at noon today Ship Silvis
lmrned. on telephoning the Cliff, that
tho fire bad not gained any alarming
headway as yet. although it was etill
burning and spreading. It Is feared
it will be nocfl?ary to shut tbe mine
up f jr an indefinite period, acd in
trh an event. 20 j men will be
thrown ont of employment and con
siderable loss eatfiikd to the opera

The same mice has been afire be
fore. Ten vea s ago a blaze was
started aod for three years the mine
was shut up for long periods of time
in hopes ot smothering the fire, bnt
it has never ceased to burn, and tbat
sunn fire was still burning when the
other broke cut. So that the ex
perience is not an unusual one alto
gether, aod the proprietors hope
they will succeed in getting the fire
under control, nt least in a short
time, so that operations may ba re
sumed. But all that depends on the
effect of tbe smothering process now
