Blucfield, W. Va., March 27. Eighty
two men were killed yesterday by a
gas explosion In the Jed Coal fc Coke
company's mln at Jed. W. Va., a half
dozen miles from here. Only 11 men
escaped alive and one of these died
within an hour after being brought to
Thirty-three bodies have been loca
ted and the rescuers hope to have them
out shortly. Exploring parties expect
ed to have all the bodies in the mine
out by noon.
When the explosion took place prob
ably only the seven men working at the
foot of the shaft had a chance for their
lives. They readily made their way to
the cages, which were not damaged.
PIMP AIR INTO MIKE.
Though some of the blsdes of the
fans were shattered, they continued
to operate with the fortunate result
that enough air was present to ad.mlt

Washington. March 27. Senator
Isaac Stephenson of Wisconsin will
retain his seat in the United States
senate. He escaped defeat by a ma
jority of two, the Jones resolution
declaring his aeat vacant being de
feated 29 to 27.
The roll call came unexpectedly.
It was a parliamentary coup. It had
been planned that the vote should be
taken tomorrow, but the opponents
of Senator Stephenson, knowing six
senators favoring the Wisconsin man
were absent at the funerals of Rep
resentatives Foster and Bingham,
succeeded In outwitting Senator Hey
burn of Idaho in charge of the case.
It had been Heyburn'a desire that
the senate, at the close of a speech
by Mr. Borah, should take a recess
with an agreement that at 6 o'clock
tomorrow evening the voting should
MOVE TO OBTAIX VOTE.
Senator Bristow of Kansas refused
unanimous consent to the motion
made by Mr. Heyburn for a recess.
1 When he was induced to withdraw
ihls objection, Mr. Poindexter of
Washington, another prpgressive, re
newed the objection.
Se ator Lea of Tennessee and
Senator Pomerene, democrats, bad
declared their intention to speak and
both were present. They remained
silent, however, when the presiding
officer, Mr. Brandegee of Connect!
cut, a Stephenson supporter, was
forced to announce that the question
was on the adoption of the resolution
which had been offered by Senator
Jones of Washington, declaring that
Mr. Stephenson is not entitled to oc
cupy a seat in the senate.

The following was the vote on the!

PAMILIKft ARE GRIEF STRICKEX.
The usual scenes of horror and grief
which attend mine disasters were
lacking. No families of the miners
crcwdfd about the mouth of the shaft.
Wcmen have kept within their homes,
overcome with grief and distraction.
The mine was Inspected last Friday
and pronounced safe. Preliminary in
vestigations have not divulged the
'caufe cf the explosion.
The families of the dead men find
themselves in sore straits. Work has
been slack at the mine. Outside aid

New York, March 27. Delegates
tc the republican national convention
were defeated in yesterday's New
York state primaries in every district
where they opposed candidates desig
nated by the regular republican or
ganization and claimed by followers
of Tart. The Taft campaign mana
gers declared today at least 83 of
New York's 90 delegates would go
to Chicago favoring the president's
renomination. This estimate includ
ed four delegates-at-large to be
chosen in the state convention.
SEVEX FOR ROOSEVELT.
The remaining seven delegates are
conceded to Roosevelt. Roosevelt
lost only two fights his supporters
made "up-state," and returns from
15 contested districts In New York
City and Long Island gave his oppo
nents a plurality averaging more than
two to one.
Roosevelt's supporters are now ex
pected to concentrate their attention
on the state convention in an effort
to prevent the Taft men from send
ing to Chicago an instructed delega
tion. WAST ANOTHER PRIMARY.
