Laramie, Wyo., July 1. "A "terrific
explosion took place in the Union Pa
cific coaf mine at llanna, Wyo., known
as No. 1. Two hundred nieu were
work Ins In the mine at the time. Thir
teen of the workmen have been res
cued from the burning mine, twelve
f thctu unconscious and oue dead. The
rescuing party which was organized
immediately has succeeded in getting
air into the mine, and it is hoied soou
to reach others of the imprisoned men.
The explosion was caused by a man
going into a condemned entry of the
mine. Quantities of gas "had evident

plosion occurred the moment the gas
touched the miner's lamp.

The party of rescuers has reached
the surface with the mangled bodies
of twenty-five mine;s who were taken
out of the mines by the rear shaft, or

when found, but many will die. Those
who can talk say that the men who
were working further on in the mine
are probably dead. A conservative es

17.". The names of the unfortunates
& ml those of the rescued miners can
not now be learned.
Fight Hade Against the Flames.
Surface men who went to the tes
cue immediately after the explosion
occurred fought iranfully and subdued
the flames, which were confined to a
few chambers. Many of the rescuing
party were burned or injured. All ef
forts were in the direction of subduing
the tire in one level at a time, so that
the Rescuing party could reach the en
tomoed miners, if alive, and their
bodies if dead. Special trains were

OF THE MAN WHO SHOT EES

Richmond Mich.," Jufy 1. Both the
death of Horace I). Sutton, an old
and well-known resident of Richmond,
who shot himself Sunday evening, and
that of Miss Rolloff, the domestic who
was perhaps fatally wounded by the
discharge of his revolver just before
he turned it upon himself, are lelieved
to "have been the result of an unhappy
misunderstanding. Mr. and Mrs. Sut
ton had just returned from a day's
outing at Falrhaven, on Lake St. Clair.
The two women were reading, when
Sutton went into the bed room and
brought out an old revolver. Miss Rol
loff, for some reason, suspected that
he meant to take his life, and she
rushed toward him and pinioned his
Killed In the Straggle.
Sutton struggled to free himself, and
as he wrenched one arm loose, the
revolver was discharged. The bullet
passed through Miss Rolloff's eye, and
she fell to the fioor. At the sight of
the girl lying motionless and bleeding
from the wound Sutton placed the re
volver over his heait and pulled the
trigger. Ills wife begged him not to
shoot, but he pointed to the girl, and
exclaiming: "I might as well Ih dead,
too, now." "he ran toward the door.
At the threshold, he again turned the
revolver to his heart, and fired. He
fell dead instantly. Miss Rolloff has
only a fair chance for recovering. Sut

BY AN EX-STATE EMPLOYE
Who Soon After Followed his
Victim to Eter
nity. Austin, Tex., July 1. Frenzied by
supiKsed wrongs W. G. Hill, an ex-attache
of the state comptroller's office,
entered the private office of State
Comptroller It M. Love and killed him
by means of two bullets from a large
caliber revolver. As Hill turned to
flee he was intercepted by Chief Clerk
Stevens, of the department, who en
gaged him in a scuttle, during which
Hill's revolver was accidentally ex
ploded. The bullet entered the murder
er's abdomen, causing a wound from
which he died three hours after the
death of the man whose life lie sought.
This tragedy Is the first assassination
chronicled in the Texas capitol.
Act of a Supposed Madlman.
As to what caused the shooting none
can explain other than that: It was the
act of a mad man. Hill had been an
employe of the comptroller's office for
ten years preceding Love's term of of
fice. He was let out by Love when
the latter took charge, and it is pre
sumed that this fact preyed upon his
mind. He went to the capitol, ente:ed
Love's private office. sioketo him
cheerfully, shook hands, and handing
him a letter to read sat down at the
invitation of the comptroller. No soon
er had Love began the reading of the
letter than Hill sprang to his feet and
fired two shots Into the body of Love,
one taking effect just altove, the other
immediately below, the heart

Ive screamed, dropped the letter,
and sprang half way towards his as

Hill, seeing that his purine had been
accomplished, turned to make for the
door. He was intercepted by Clerk
Stevens, who grappled with him and
was wrestling with 'him when 11 Ills
pistol was accidentally discharged, the
bullet enteriug Hill's abdomen. He fell
a dead weight in Stevens' arms, and
was lowered gently to the floor, where
he lay until taken to the hospital. Love
died within an hour after the shoot

The letter that Hill gave to Love Is
dated Austin, blank date, 1003, ad
dressed to Colonel It M. Love, State
Comptroller, and reads:
"Dear Sir: Public office is a public
trust. Public offices are created for
the service of the ixopIe, mid not for
the aggrandizement of a few individ
uals. The practice of bartering depart
ment clerkships for private gain is a
disgrace to the public service, and in
this nefarious traffic you are a record
breaker. You have robbed the state
employes and your incompetent ad
ministration has piompted others to
rob the state.
"The man who, claiming to be a
Christian, deprives others of employ
ment without cause is a base hypocrite
and a tyrant. The greatest mind that
ever gave its wisdom to the world; the
mind of all others most capable of
'umpiring the mutiny between right
and wrong' said, you take my life
when you do take from nie the means
by which I live.'
"If that be true you are a murderer
of the deepest crime. Although I can
not help myself, before !laying life's
burdens down I shall strike a blow
feeble though it be for the good
of my deserving fellowman.
"For the rignt against the wrong,
"For the weak against the strong.
"W. a. HILL."
Hill was a quiet and gentlemanly
person, and was never known to have
been addicted to any bad habits. At
the time of the shooting he was hold
ing a good position here. Immediate
ly after the shooting, and while Hill
was still lying in the corridor, a bot
tle of laudanum was taken from his
pocket, and reaching for . It lie said:
"Let me take that and die easy."

RELATIVE TO JEW MASSACRE
In Spite of the Administrative
Measures to Keep it
Washington, July 1. The Associa
ted Press is authorized to state that
the llussian government most posi
tively and absolutely denies the re
port that 1t has offered any official
explanation to the American govern
ment regarding the Kishineff incident
and declared it has never been ad
dressed by the American goternment
upon the subject. The Ilussian gov
ernment must categorically refuse to
receive from any power, any petitions,
representations or communications
regarding its internal affairs.

Bound to Influence the Czar.
It is predicted that the extraordi

strengthen the hands of the more liberal-minded
of the czar's advisers, par
ticularly since it is obviously shared
by every -ountry, the good opinion of
which is valued by Russia. The at
titude of the great nations toward the
question of the civilization of Russia
cuts the Muscovite susceptibilities like

minister of the interior, is sensitive to
the verdict of mankind when it tends
to the assumption that Russians are
only European in appearance anil that
their ethics and methods are essential,
PTIODCCT OF KTJSSIAN TOLICV
Charged of the KIscheneflT Massacre Got
ernment Is Anti-Semite.
Every new revelation supports the
claim of the Jews in Kischeneff that
the massacres were the pioduct of Ihe
St. Petersburg policy. Not content
with subsidizing Hessarabetz. the
newspaper which instigated the people
to attack the .lews, the government
has promised Krushevan. the editor,
support for other anti-Semite journals
in order "to break the tyianny of
Hebrew economic domination in vari
ous parts of the empire."
Krus.hevan's visit to St Petersburg
supposedly at the invitation of the gov
ernment, has been made the occasion
of a demonstration in government cir
cles. Although he is entirely without
literary meiit or social position even
the czar has accepted his book deal
ing with the Jewish question, an act
which shakes the general conviction
that his majesty is in sympathy with
This government circle sympathy for
the anti-Semites has taken active form
also in the lauding of Lopukhin, the
official whom Yon Piehve sent to inves
tigate the massacre, because he report
ed that Krushevan seemed to be the
only influential man in Ressarabiu
whom the Jews had not bought.

THE ALLISON PLANK
Stick to Protection But
Straddle the Trust
Des Moines, July 1. State Chair
man Spence called the ' republican
state convention to order at 11 today.
Over a thousand delegates were pres
ent. After invocation, lion. George
D. Perkins, of Sioux City, was pre
sented as temporary chairman. The
utmost hdrmony prevailed and a full
ticket will be nominated. The incum
bents of the offices, with the excep
tion of state superintendent, for
which position there are three can
didates, will be renominated.
Senator Allison's tariff trust plank,
which will be adopted by the conven
tion, is as follows:
"We reiterate our faith in the his
toric principle of protection. Under
its influence our country, foremost in
the bounties of nature, has become
foremost in production. It has ena
bled laborers to successfully insist
upon good wages and has induced cap
ital to engage in production with rea
sonable hope of fair reward. Its vin
dication is found in history, its suc
cess, and the rapidity with which our
national resources have been devel
oped and our industrial indeendenee
secured, and we heartily renew our
pledge to maintain it.
"The tariff rate enacted to carry
this policy into effect should be just,
fair and impartial, equally opposed
to foreign control and domestic mo
nopoly, to sectional discriminations,
individual favoritism, anil must, fronl
time to time, be changed to meet var
ying conditions incident to the prog
res's of our industries and their changi
ing relations in our foreign and do
mestic commerce. Duties that are
too low should be increased, and du
ties that are too high should be re
duced. "We indorse the policy of recijiroci
ty, the natural companion of protec
tion. Reciprocity between nations is
trade for mutual advantage, and both
sides must give and take.
"We approve the treaty with Cuba
recently ratified as conferring sub
stantial benefits upon both countries,
and urge the remaining steps neces
sary to make it effective be promptly
Supervision of Trusts.
"We believe the large corporations
coiiimonlj" called 'trusts' should be so
regulated and supervised, . both in
their organization and operation, that
their evil tendencies may be checked
and evil practices prevented. In many
instances they are efficient industrial
instruments and the natural outcome
of the inevitable process of economic
evolution. We do not desire their de
struction, but insist they shall be so
regulated and controlled as to pre
vent monopoly and promote competi
tion and in the fullest measure sub
serve and advance the public good. .
"The patriotic and resolute course
of President -Roosevelt ' in his recom
mendation to congress upon this sub
ject and related to the. subject of fur
ther regulation of interstate com
merce commands our confidence, and
admiration, and the recent legislation
of congress in harmony with his rec
ommendation meets our hearty ap
proval." When the convention reassembled
Hon. N. E. Kendall, of Albia, was cho
sen permanent chairman. The com
mittee on resolutions was not ready to
report and the convention decided to
wait for it. Y
