Ashlaxo. Wis., frpt. 30. Shaft Ko. S, of
the Great Norrie iron mine at Iron wood,
was at 4 o'clock yesterday morninK the
scene of it cave-in, and last niht eleven
men who were caught by the falling earth
were still entomlHHl in a room in the bowels
f the enrth, while their fellow workmen
were working with might and main for
their rescue. The entombed men are: John
Bloonifjuist, Simon Pnkimn, Frank Den
almw, Sam Denshaw, Michael Dowes, Her
man Krickson, John Johnson, Jacob Sund
quist, Abraham Thompson, two unknown
men. All the men are unmarried except
four, Johnson, Thompson and the two
Can Hear the Imprisoned Men.
At last night one room was reached
In which two men were working. This
ontained two trammer. The room was
Apparently full. The remainder of the
men are in two rooms further back. The
tmried men responded to signals on timbers
four time in an hour, between 7 and 8
o'clock. The prospect were brighter than
during the afternoon that the men will be
rescued. The catastrophe occurred short ty
fter the drill holes had been fired, and the
concussion loosened the hanging wall,
bringing thousands of tons of earth down
upon the men who were in the drift. The
banging wall of the mine consists of loose,
friable rock, requiring very great quanti
ties of timlier for support.
Helieves the Men Are Safe.
The scene of the disaster is at the largest
Iron mine in the world, whose wealth of
re is unlimited. The cave-in extendsfrom
the surface to the fifth level. As soon as
the cave-in occurred a large crew was
summoned to the mine anl the work of
rescue began at once. The men are en
tombed in room 11, the fifth level, and Cap
tain Sutherland, of the mine, is certain
that the cave-in has not molested the room
and that the men are all safe. The room
in which the men are is sixteen feet wide,
forty feet high and forty feet long.
Work of Rescue Very Slw.
None of the entombed men is supposed to
be hurt, unless they were caught in the
right foot passage which leads to the room
Mid is now filled with caved ore. The res
cuing party at once began working with a
will and is drifting toward where the men
are imprisoned, changing every five min
tites. After drifting aliout thirty-five feet
the rescuing party struck loose earth and
was obliged to timlter its way as it pro
gressed, which kept it buck some time and
made work very slow.
Wives at the Mouth of the Pit.
Hundreds of women nnd children
re gat hered about the shafthouse eagerly
waiting for news of the men lielow. John
son, Thompson and the two Ienshaws are
married men. The ot hers, with the excep
tion of Dawes, who is the skip tender, are
what is known as timber men. These are
unmarried. The wives of the four first
mentioned are at the mouth of the pit. The
irrief and fearful suspense have well nigh
driven them insane, and it is with difficulty
that several women are prevented from
throwing themselves into the dark open
ing which leads to what may prove the
scene of their husbands' death.
Still Hearing from the Prisoners.
Soundings were resumed late last night by
the rescuing party and answers have been re
ceived by the same means from the second
chamber of the caved portion. It is now
A certainty that some of the men are alive
in the second room and unless something
unforeseen occurs the rescuers will reach
them by noon today.
' DEED OF A BRAVE WOMAN.
The Question Now Is, What Will the Com
I panr Do for Her?
Viejtsa, Sept. 30. News has been re
ceived from Zokhvitsa, Russia, of a deed
of great bravery by a woman. Eight armed
robbers visited a factory during the night
for the purpose of plundering the safe,
vfcicu thry knew contained a large sum of
money. The watchman attempted to re
sist them, but they fired on him with re
volvers, and killed him. The watchman's
wife heard the noise, and seizing a gun
ran to the scene.
Saved John Company 100,000 Florins.
She mastered her grief at the sight of her
husband's body, and fired upon the robbers.
Seven of them fled, leaving one who had
gut into the factory farther than the rest, and
was locked in a room by the courageous
woman. When help came the woman was
on guard with her gun ower the captive rob
ber. She thus saved 100,000 florins that
were in the company's safe.

Papers were read by Prof. Watt, of Glas
gow, on the land question; Principal Grant,
of Queen's college, Kingston, Ont., on the
question of wages, and Rev. Dr. McDonald,
of Calcutta, on the opium question in
India. The advanced views expressed by
Principal Grant in his pajer on wages
brought Rev. Dr. Hall, of New York, to
his feet. He said he hoped the public
would not consider that the council en
dorses all the papers read here; there is too
much condemnation of capitalists. Lalor
organizations were not always equitable
and they do not teach sharing in losses as
well as profits of capital. It was not the
business of the churches and the ministers
to discuss these questions.
