HiTTE, Mont., Nov. 25. During the Inter
val between the retiring of the nhjht shift at
S o'clock Saturday morning and the coming
mi of the day abift at 7 o'clock Are broke out
in 8t Laarrunos mine near here. The fire
raufc-ht in the 400-foot level of the St. Law
rence, and. aa that and the Anaconda mine
are connected on every level down to tbe
aoo-foot of tbe hitter, tba Mr ha communi
cated itw-ir to both.
A Tarrtbla Faet Mad a Known,
f'artiee were sent down to extinguish the
flames, but the smoke became o dense and
stifling that this became more difficult every
minute. It soon became known that several
men were down in the mine, and their com
ratles, with blanched races, called name after
name to find out who were missing. Hi m
were called for, and cages filled with volun
teers, who betnn the rapid descent, but in a
minute the signal to hoist was given, and
the cagca Vere brought to tbe surface, the
rescuing party almost unconscious from in
baling the stifling amoke.
Eoar Men Heroically Rescued.
A half dozen more attempts were niado,
but were unsuccessful. At last a party pro
vided with sponges started on tbe terrible de
scent, after a last good-by to the hundreds
woo were gathered in the hoUtlng works.
This party reached the 800-foot level where
the miner, had lieen left. Four of tbem were
Iragged to the cage, but before the fifth could
le reached the rexeuera were nearly stifled,
and the signal to ascend waa given. It was a
terrible ascent. The men were ao suffocated
with smoke and exhausted that they were
power les to asxist each other, and could
canvly retain their hold on the cage.
Ita.hed Itawa to Death.
Harry Page, known as the champion ham
mer driver of Montana, one the rescued
party, hit his hold and fell to the bottom
of the shaft. 1.1100 feet below the surface. At
tbe s foot level Tim Kellener, brakeman,
fell off. and wan da bed to death at tbe bot
tom of tbe shaft Kelleher had four time
maile the descent in the endeavor to rescue
hia comrades. Nearly all of the party that
reached the surface were unconscious. At
the fifteen f is t level John Lyons toppled
over, but a grabbed by one of the rescuers.
Lyons' head was terribiy smashed and hU
left leg broken in two places. It is thought
he cau not survive.

THE RECOGNITION OF BRAZIL.
French llepnhlleana Anxlon. to Have the
? ew Departara Sustained.
Lokdc, Nov. 25. Deputy Hubbard.of tbe
French chamber of deputise, has announced his
intention of questioning the government on
Monday a het her the French republic proposes
to recognise the republic of Brazil. The gen
eral imp -esMiou is that the repiy will be
lo the ef act that precedent forbvls recogni
tion of th; provisional government, but that
as soon a the constitutional assembly, which
is to tie rs lied by the provisional government,
ba ennot uced a definitive form of govern
ment on t he authority of the people of the
country, France will hasten to recognize the
sister republic. It ia likely that this senti
ment will fail to satisfy the more radical
members of the chamber, and that tbey will
Insist iio i Immediate action being taken to
show thai France prefer the republican to
any otbe- form of government in Brazil.
Danger of a Reaction.
There i a general feeling manifested
among republicans and radicals throughout
Europe that danger exists of a reaction
toward, monarchism in Brazil, and that
such governments of Europe as are of the
popular type should give countenance so far
as possibe to the revolutionists at Bio.
This is considered appropriate, also, as a
legitimate offset to the secret but neverthe
kw undoubted efforts of th monarchists
throughout Europe to create sentiment, and.
If possible, effect tangible aid, for their
repreueutjttive who haa been dismissed from
service in South America.
Th Tape's Alleged Intrlgne.
It Is opmly asserted in Paris that the pope
is also im nguing in favor of this movement
to bring shout the restoration of the Bourbon
dynasty in Brazil. It is not considered pas
sible or a visable to seek the replacement of
Dora Ped o bunself, but it is hoped that
circunLstances will arise which will
make it possible to secure the
throne for bis grandson, who
has some laipular qualities and would prob
ably receive tbe warm allegiance ot many
Brazilian- wbo would prefer tba empire to a
republic, provided the former were admin
istered in a little mors progressive fashion
than was ooHsible in tbe latter years of Dom
Pedro', rtign. hampered as it waa by the big
otry and ultra eoiuerratism of the Princes,
ltalielle and her adherents.
Tbe Fn nob and Spanish republicans are
anxious U- prevent any step being taken to
further tl is scheme, and they are endeavor
ing to secure action by their governments
similar to that taken by the little Swiss con
federatioi , which has not hesitated to in
struct its representative in Brazil to recog
nize tbe provisional government as the legit

Washington Citt, Nov. 25. A deter
mined effort will be made this winter, both
in congress and out of it, to save Admiral
Farragut's old flagship, Hartford, from de
struction. Patriotic sentiment and naval prid
will alike exert their influence to secure an
appropriation (ufRaient to repair the hull
of the historic ship, fit ber out as a sailing
vessel if not enough money can be got to
provide her with new machinery and send
ber to Annapolis to be used a a Khool and
training ship for the naval cadet of the pres
ent and future. There has been a great deal
of backing and filling about this good old
vessel that bore Farragut' flag through the
tire aud smoke of half a dozen pitched naval
conflicts of the war. The two houses, being
of ditterent politic, all measure, for repair
ing the old ship have been pigeon-holed from
party jealousy, probably.
Condition of the Old Ship.
The Republicans are now in full power, and
the old ship will probably be put in comm le
sion. Tbe Hartford ia at present anchored
in the stream off Mare island navy yard.
She is stripped of mast and rigging, and a
light roof w ith canvass aide protect her
deck from the weather. From a recent re
port of Naval Constructor Feaster at the
Mare island yard it would appear that her
hull is in a remarkable state of preservation
that is, the old timber that were put into
her w ben she was built at Boston in 1858.
Ktrange to say, the new timbers and plank
ing m bich went to repair the Hartford after
the terrible damage done ber in Mobile bay
bave rotted away, but ber orignal ribs of oak
are sound and hard as iron.
She ltore Brave Farragnt'a Flag.
The Hartford bore Farragut' flag and hi
person in every fight From New Orleans,
Vk-kburg, Port Hudson, Grand Gulf, the
Red river, until the last grand achievement
at Mobile hay, in which the old ship waa lit
erally cut to pieces, her cabin was his home,
her mast bore his flag, and her name shared
witb bis tbe glories of his victories. It would
be a crowning shame that this ship should be
destroyed for her metaL
The ship lies to ber anchor and (wing to
the tide. Her copper is covered with a growth
of moss and weeds nearly two inches long.
Her machinery has been stripped from ber,
her cabins demolished, and she is but a bare
bulL The bras, plate, inscribed in honor of
tbe great admiral
"Damn tbe Torpedoes I
Go Ahead, air!!
still remains screwed to tbe break of her poop
The Veteran Custodian.
One man, a wounded sailor, wbo served
witb Fsrragut at Mobile bay, bvea on board
night and day. and is the ship's sole custo
dian. The ind flap her canvas screens and
howl along the empty docks, but tbe old
sailor is not disturbed. He sounds the pump,
daily, but never finds a leak. Tbe old bull is
as tight as a drum. When night cornea he
lights his pi(e and draws his cot just beneath
the brass plate referred to, and dreams peace
fully of that August morning in IStH which
so lung as lire lasts he will never forget.
PENSION OFFICIALS RESIST REMOVAL.
None or Those Requested to Realgn Proves
Compliant Quite the Contrary.
Washington Citt. Nov. 25. In carrying
out tbe policy announced of removing from
the government service tboae pension office
employes whose pension bave been re-rated
in what i. regarded as an irregular and on
just way. Secretary Noble ba thus far called
for the resigualiuu of five re-rated employes.
In no instance has this request been complied
with, and it ia said that no one of tba re
maining twenty-seven employe whose name
appear in the report of the commission in
teiuls to resign. They maintain that a
resignation implies one of two things, either
that a person wu.be to leave the government
service, or else that be is conscious of some
wrong doing on bis part. The re-rated em
ployes claim that this is not their situation,
and they not only have no intention of re
signing, but tbey intend to make a fight for
Harked by a Cabinet Officer.
In the case of one of the officials whose
resignation has been called for, bi claim for
retention is backed by a member ot the cab
inet. Another official has a petition signed
by l.OuO Union soldiers asking that he be not
dismissed. In addition the officials themselves
and their friends visit the secretary of the in
terior and tbe commissioner of pensions, and
present agumants against the carrying into
execution of the proposed policy in the re
rated cases This marshaling of influence
will have an effect, but exactly bow many
can be saved, and how far a stay of proceed
ings can be enforced is a questiou of great In
terest ju-t now.
THE SPEAKERSHIP CONTEST.
Newspaper's Estimate of the Votes for
t'lte Prominent Candidates.
Washington Citt, Nov 25. Th Post
publishes a table giving the trength of tbe
five prominent Republican candidate for th
speakership of the bouse. It gives to Reed 5b'
votes, to McKinley, 47, Cannon, 24; Hender
son, 13, and Burroms, 13. Seventeen vote
are recorded aa doubtful and likely to be
scattered among tha various candidate.
Many of tiieae ecatteruis votes, it ia thought.
w,u go to toe man who haa tbe beat Cues
of wmuiiig. If tbia is not clear by tha time
the caucus assembles tbey will be cast oa the
early ballot for tboa candidate who are
lowest in the order of probabilities, which
will afford tbe opportunity of holding a re
serve vote for a critical period.
A Modeat Man from Iowa.
In this table Henderson is credited with 13
votes, though he only claims 10 those of th
Iowa delegation. At the headquarter of th
other candidates, however, 13 votes is con
ceded to him at tbe outset, so that he perhaps
presents the rare spectacle of a candidate
underestimating his osm strength. McKin
ley'. friends lelieve that all be now needs to
win is to bold solidly his present strength,
because he is the strongest second choice
both east and west.
The Republican membership of the house b
icy, and it will require eigbty-fivo vote to
nominate if all are present.

Helena, Mont, Nov. 35. Tbe lower house
of th legislature organized Saturday after
noon tn two branches, tbe Republican, meet
ing in a ball on Main street and the Democrats
in the court-house. The first body was called
to order by State Auditor Kenney, and sworn
in by Chief Justice Blake. The organization
was perfected by the election of A C Witter,
of Beaver Head county, speaker, and Benja
min Webster, of Lewis and Clarke county,
chief clerk. A full list of subordinate officers
waa also elected, and a recess taken.
A Democratic Room Also.
The Democrats organized with Mr. Blake
ly, of Gallatin county, as speaker. The
member were sworn in by a notary public.
The doors were closely guarded. J"o one was
admitted except tbone holding certificates of
election from county clerks. This branch
also took a recess.
Tbe Senate Without a Quorum.
The senate met at tbe court housp, but the
Democratic members absented themselves
and there was no quorum, the two parties
being a tie in this branch. Lieutenant Gov
ernor Rickards called the senate to onler.
On the roll-call ei-ht Republicans were pres
ent and were sworn in by Judge Hunt, after
which they adjourned until this morning.
The Republican View of the Matter.
A Republican caucus was held Saturday
night at which the organization of the house
separately from tbe Democrats was justiiied
under the clause of the new constitution
which, it was stated, provides that returns
for all state officers, including legislators,
shall be canvassed by the same board created
by the Enabling act to canvass returns of
the vote on the constitution. It was also
agreed that the settlement of the dispute
rests wholly with the members of tbe con
flicting branches that tbe governor cannot
determine the rights of members.
The (.overnor'a Action.
It was stated tiiat though tbe governor had
tbe right to designate the place of meeting,
he had no right to personally control iheplar
designated, keeping it locked and guarded to
some, while others were admitted. This
action, it was claimed, justified the Repub
licans in meeting elsewhere. As the senate
contains an equal number of Democrats and
Republicans, aud tbe riht of the lieutenant
povrrni T t. prMd. could not be question!,
toe Deuiorrats could prevent oi'..matio.i
only hy alwnting themselves.
There was not a particle of trouble of any
kind, tbe Repulli-ans staying hy their leis
lature and the Democrats bv theirs.
