rteacoo Case Mrs. Osborne. .
Brussels, March 12. There is weeping
and wailing at the Anderlius colliery,
near Charleroi. - Around the pit-mouth
are gathered hundreds of women and
children . rending the air with their des
pairing cries, while down in the depths
of the mine over 300 men and women are
entombed. How many are dead is not
known for it has been impossible to pene
trate the passage-ways, but if the list does
dot reach 100 it will be a miracle. The
cause of all this was an explosion in the
second gallery, 500 feet from the surface.
It wrecked the shaft, tumbled the gallery
into rains, choking it up with timbers and
debris, and of all the men and women at
work there but eighty have reached the sur
face, thirty of whom are dead and seven
wounded. Forty escaped through a sec
In Peril of Choke Damp.
The effect of t lie explosion was terrific.
The cat;e and the ventilator were shatter
ed. The destruction of the ventilator adds
an element of great danger to the situa
tion. The men, if any, who survive the
shock of the explosion are apt to meet
their death from the choke damp, as with
the destruction of the ventilator it is im- !
possible to rid the mine of the passes.
some of the women whose husbands, sons
or brothers were in the mine are quite
frantic, and it has leen found necessary to
get their friends to remove them from the
scene of the accident. I
The I'erilou Work of Revrtiera.
Volunteers were let dow n three times
in a cage. When half way down on the
first trip the further caving of the shaft
frightened them and they returned. Five
cf the ten men refused to go down again,
s the mine was flooding rapidly, they
said, and the loosened sides of the shaft
threatened to fall in and bury them. The
other five made the second trip and reached
the mouth of the second gallery. They
found a few men who were nearest the
shaft wheu the first explosion occurred.
Hail to Leave Them to Die.
All had broken bones and three were so
firmly lodged in the wreck that the rescu
ing party dare not wait to extricate them.
Five of the wounded were brought up on
the second trip and two others and live
dead were brought up on the third. The
rescued men suid that twenty-five of the
miners imprisoned are women. It is
thought that those nearest the first cave
in in the gallery may lis rescued alive.
Those furthest from the entrance of the
gallery have probably been suffocated be
fore this ami if not, w ill die before they
can be reached.
Tweiity-I'ive Corpses i'ouuil.
Late last evening another rescue party
descended to the scene of the explosion iu
the mine. They cleared away the debris
at the entrance of the gallery and found
twenty -five bodies, five of them women.
Most of the bodies were terribly mutilated.
Others showed but few fractures of the
limbs; death had tieen caused apparently
by suffocation. The rescue party returned
and are still at work in the gallery.
DYNAM1TARDS AT PARIS.
The Miscreants Fail in Their Murderous
Paris, March 12. A dynamite bomb
was exploded with terrific effect at 138
ZJoulevard St. Germain, one of the great
est thoroughfares iu Paris, last evening.
The house is partially occupied by M. Be
nolt, the magistrate who sentenced the St.
Denis anarchists. Ever since the
trial he lias been annoyed by
anonymous letter writers who have
warned him that he was about to be
killed. Thursday he received one note
which said: 'Yon have betrayed the
cause of liberty. You are in league with
the oppressors of the proletariat. Y'ou
have condemned innocent inen and your
hours are numbered."

SYMPATHY FOR MRS. OSBORNE.
A Strong Movement Organizing to Secure
LOXDOX, March li The sympathy for
Mrs. Osborne is spreading, and a monster
meeting will shortly lie held to petition
the government for her release. A peculiar
feature of the agitation is that, although
Mrs. Osborne and all her connections are
British, the Irish newspapers of all parties
are taking the lead in the plea for mercy.
The Irish Times, The National Press and
The Dublin Express, are heading the
movement iu behalf of a pardon.
Something AVrong with the Law.
It is argued in Mrs. Osborne's liehalf
that many a ruffian has received a sen
tence far less severe for beating his wife to
death. There is reason to believe that a
petition which should be so general as to
show a practical unanimity of public
sentiment would have a favorable recep
tion. One of the strongest reasons pre
sented in behalf of mercy is Captain
Osborne's noble conduct, and the general
live and unjust taxation.1

MFS. DEACON'S EFFRONTERY.
She Set ius to Have in Excess What Her
Countrymen fail "Gall."
PAKIt, March 12. The Deacoa case is
still the uppermost theme of society's gos
sip. It is stated that Mrs. Deacon exerted
herself to the utmost to obtain a private
intervie v with her husband before the re
cent hearing, but the magistrate was firm
in his re'usal. Mrs, Deacon boasted that
if she could be alone with Edward five
minutes she could make him do anything
she desired. The people of Cannes are ap
palled at the lady's calmness and indiffer
ence. 11 st only real anxiety seems to be
as la whether she is in danger of losing
her position in society. She does not
realize tht she has already lost it.
"Thoa Shalt Not Be Found Out."
She called at the American legation and
was info:nied by the major domo that
Mrs. Reid would not receive her, but she
seems to think this-is only on account of
some offic al quibble of propriety in con
nection w th her nationality. The Count
ess Pou rt ales, an Americaine, is being
made the subject of smiles on account of
her alleged sang f roid on first hearing of
the shooting. She is reported to have sim
ply exclan led: "How imprudent she has
been." A a matter of fact it would per
haps not bt far from the truth to say that
this remark summed up the opinion of
most mem!)ers of French society.
A GIGANTIC WOLF HUNT.
Fifteen Hundred Men Engaged lu 100
Square Mile Konnd-l'p.
Pelican Rapids, Minn., March 12. It
was feared that the terrible storm of
Wednesday would necessitate the post
ponement of the great wolf-drive which
had been planned for yesterday. The
weather, ho vever, came off so fine that it
improved ra.her than injured the condi
tions. Everything had been organized on
the military plan and every man knew
just where be was expected to be. The
territory to 1 covered is about lfHJ square
miles. It is in the form of a square and
each bound iry line is ten miles long.
Between 1,:.0) and 1,500 men listed their
names and were on the line yesterday
morning. There are 100 captains, each
one having a mile of boundary to look
No Firearms Allowed.
The round np will occur in an open
prairie six n.iles north of this village,
which slopes toward the center, so that
the advancing lines can see all that is oc
curring. Kir sarins of all kinds have been
prohibited, as liter would be great dan
ger in shooting. Pitch-forks and impro
vised spears are the favorite weapons. The
farmers are very much in earnest in this
matter. They have suffered greatly in
having sheep mil calves killed. There is
no doubt ab iut the wolves being plenti
ful. Only SriMped Seventeen Wolves.
Then the r und up was completed the
men were not more than ten feet apart aud
within the iiorral were thirty wolves,
hundreds of j:ck-rabbits and one solitary
liear, which fit. ally got away. The wolves
continued to d ish around, at iutervals one
receiving a fatid thrust. The circle grew
smaller and the wolves uglier. At last
the slauiihter was over and seventeen
wolves were ki led. No attention was paid
to the jack-ra) bits. The wolves were im
paled on the spears and borne aloft in

Dri.lTIt, Mini., March 12. It is esti

The Sort of Democratic Convention Rail
Washixgtox, March 12. Mr. Daniel
Dougherty, of New York, the eloquent
friend of Cleveland, has written a letter to
Senator Brice, the chairman of the Demo
cratic national committee, protesting
against the construction of a large hall in
Chicago for the, accommodation of the
national Democratic convention. He
urges that a large hall merely furnishes
accommodation for the friends of candi
dates who are interested in influencing the
action of the convention; that the audi
ence assembled may entirely misrepresent
the sentiment of the country, but by
demonstrations of enthusiasm may de
ceive and influence the judgment of the
delegates. He thii ks that the convention
should lie considered as a committee and
that no extraordinary accommodation
should be provided for the public.
