VlLKEsr,.i:!:t:, Pa.. Feb. 10. Intense joy
ami excitement prevail-, at tho l.ttlo h:im
let of Gram! Tunnel ov.r tho rescue of
three etomleil miner who we-e iuipr s
oned by water rushing into the j;ar:vays
and breasts of the iMi-qiiehanim col col
liery Ht that place on Wednesday of last
week, after the firing of a blast. The
names ol' the men ore Miclmel SchilliuR
William tra-el. and John Riner, nil well
known nsiairs. They were found alive
in the upper workings near the outcrop,
the water K ing unable to re ich them
after they managed to pet out of its swirl
wheu it wai rushing through the mine.
The party was found in an almost ex
liausteii condition from their 115 hours
imprisonment, and it will require care to
bring them through.
Thrilling I xperien. e of the Men.
As the facts of the wonderful rescue
have become Lnown about tha minin?
regions the people are iutensely excited.
The experience of the men is n ost thrill
ing. After they had reached a point of
Comparative s.tf.ty from the flood, they
found tliat oii'.y a slender p.e e of wood
srved tf keep hack ton of loose coal
that had fallen into the morth of the
cross-tut. When they found the inclined
cut in the vt in i climoed up its almost
perpendicular pass.-ig- they managed to
obtain a pi. c;-of ioi..so timber. This lliey
placed across the opening of the tunnel,
and after getting it sateiy lodgtd, climbed
upon it for a seat.
I'oiir I)ay on a Perch.
There they salon this piece of timler,
scarcely three inches wide, for over four
days. Hehiud them was the immense
body of coal held in place by a small piece
of "prop," and, fearing to dislo Ice it, the
men dared not even rest against it. In a
short time their supply of oil gave out,
and they were in total darkness. Hirer,
the most experienced of the me i, was able
to keep his head in their long imprison
ment, hut both Cragin and Schilling at
times became crazy. Cragin imagined he
saw a mine car, and jumped hit the water
to ride to the slope with it. He was res
cued, and g f back to the perc i by Miner.
Schilling was more easily m: naged, al
though he was sobbing constantly.
A Daring Work of Resellers.
Wednesday passed and Thursday came,
and then the men lost track of time. The
first welcome sound reach in 5 their ears
was the "plunk" of the pump. The first
message between them and their rescuers
reached them at 3 o'cloci yesterday morn
ing. The work of reaching the imprisoned
miners was daringly accomplished by
George Bender, who, when te found his
progress stopped by low timlrs, dipped
his raft under them, following by diving.
He lost his hat and miners' lamp, but
William Bo wen, who was swimming the
gang-way, passed his lamp through a
breakover the timbers and liender went
on with bis search. When he found
Riner, Cragin and Schilling tiiey were up
in the cross heading perched on a "leg
ging" and at the big hest poin t they could
get in the mine.
Floated Out on a Raft.
This was but a trifle more than six feet
above the elevation reached by the flood,
and here they were without fcod since
Wednesday morning. At 5:3) the water
was down enough to let the men out by
floating them, one at a time, on a raft
across the flooded gangway, tl eir impris
onment making them too weak to risk the
danger of the water. The phj sician in at
tendance says that the men must subsist
on beef tea for a number of days and
they will be all right in a short time, ex
cept, possibly, Riner. who is slightly poi
soned in his feet from the sopour water
of the mine.

OLD WORLD GLEANINGS.
John Bull Doesn't Like Amerieo-Brazil-
London, Feb. 10. The reciprocity treaty
between the United States and Brazil haa
aroused much uneasiness in trading cir
cles here, esjiecially as, by the govern
ment's own admission, there is no obliga
tion on Brazil to accord similar favors to
England. English merchants have well
established houses at Rio de Janeiro and
other Brazilian cities, and the British
trade with the republic is very valuable.
It is feared that much of this will be lost
Great Britain Has Nothing to Say.
London, Feb. 10. Sir James Fergnsson,
of the foreign office, answering a questioi
to parliament yesterday relating to the
-American reciprocity treaty with Brazil,
and as to whether Great Britain would
have equal commercial advantages in Bra
zil with those bestowed by the treaty on
the United States, replied that Great Brit
ain had no commercial treaty with Brazil,
and could not, therefore, demand the same
trading rights as those bestowed by the
treaty on the United States.
Russian Jews Not Wanted in Rngland.
London, Feb. 10. The news of Baron
Hirsch's immense gift for the benefit of
Russian and Polish Jews immigrating to
the United States has been receive! with
considerable satisfaction in Loudon, as
there is strong opposition both arnnng the
working classes and business men to any
more immigration of Russian Jews to
England, and Lord Salisbury's govern
ment has leen asked to interfere to pre
vent it. The latest arrivals from Russia,
on their way to America, are of the most
squalid description and it is probable that
local authority would have interfered to
prevent the. r remaining here, even if the
imperial government bad not acted.
Aveling Is Shut Out.
London. Feb. 10. Aveling. the Social
ist, having failed to make the deposit re
quired by the English law on the part of
a candidate for parliament, has been
compelled to retire from the coutest in
Northampton. When the Sicial Demo
cratic federation refused to advance
money for Aveling's candidacy it was
tbonght that the Tories would do so in
order to keep him in Uie field and divide
the Liberal vote. The Tories, however
resolved to let Aveling shift for himself. '
Leopold and the Laborer.
BuUStiELS. Feb. 10. King Leopold re
ceived a deputation of workingmen from
the Workingmen's Council of Industry,
who told the kiug that they had decided to
pledge their support to the demand for uni
versal suffrage. The king said that the
workiogmen were wrong in considering
themselves a separate cast. "We are Bel
gians," said the king, "in our different
grades." The workingmen's delegates im
plied that they had been made a separate
caste in being refused the right to vote.
A Snub from the Csar.
