VlENXA, Jun. 2o. An explosion of fire
damp occurred yesterday in the Fortschritt : to be aarisible to both employer and em
mine at Dux, in Bohemia. Eighty miners ploye; a Iare e tension of the existing
were killed and scores injured. The ex
plosion occurred yesterday morning when
the shifts were changing. A cage f 'ill of
miners had been lowered half way down
the shaft when the ground trembled, a
loud rumbling report was heard, and the
cable attached to the care give such a
lurch that the lowering mactiinery broke.
A rush of air and dust from the pit's
mouth, the sounds of crashing timbers,
and the cries of the men in the cage gave
warning to the men above of the extent of
the disaster. Help was summoned, the
machinery was repaired after the delay of
half an hour, aud the cage was raised. Ten
of the occupants had been killed instantly
by the shock, ten had suffered fractures
from which they cannot recover, and five
who had broken limbs aud internal injur
ies will live. They had been half suffocated
by the gas rising in the shaft, and said that
no man could live below.
Fourteen Bead In the Gallery.
An hour later the superintendent of the
mine and five miners from the night shift
went down in the cage. Tbey were unable to
go more than 100 yards from the shaft into
the gallery, but they found fourteen dead
bodies. Of the fifty men who were waiting
for the cage ten had been killed and forty
had been partially crus hed by falling tim
bers or half suffocated by the foul air. A
short distance from the shaft the superin
tendent found four bodies which had been
crushed beyond recognition by a falling
beam. The bodies and the injured were
taken to the top, where the whole mining
settlement had gathered to watch the work
Forty Men Imprisoned.
The men who had been brought up from
the bottom said that a few minutes after
the explosion they had heard cries and
groans from the mouth of the gallery about
800 yards from the shaft. There was heavy
timber work at this place, and they
believed that the men in this gallery had
been imprisoned by the falling beam.
They believed that some forty men bad
been at work there. It is believed that all
the men in the gallery were suffocated or
killed by the shock of the explosion.

DUBLIN, Jan. 35. There was a lively
scene in the police court yesterday when
Pierce Mahony, ex-M. P., Parnellite, was
brought up for examination on the charge
of assaulting M. J. Kenny, M. P. The
courtroom was crowded, most of those
present being Parnellite sympathizers with
the defendant. Timothy Ilealy, M. P., ap
peared as counsel for the prosecution. In
opening the case Healy suid that Kenny
was a barrister, and was wearing his wig
and gown when Mahony approached him
and, without saying a word, struck him in
the eye, causing an inflammation of the
surrounding tissue, commonly called a
black eye. Kenny when struck, seized
Mahony by the throat and gave him into
custody. Healy said he hoped the crown j
would take charge of the case, and de- j
manded the infliction of a severe punish
ment upon the aggressor. I
Had His Black Eje With Flim. I
Kenny took the stand and preseutod oc-'
nlar evidence that he was suffering from
a black eye. His testimony agreed with
Healy's statement about the unexpected
impact of Mahony's fist upon his unoffend
ing optic. Kenny added that while he was
yet staggered by the sudden blow an ex-1
ulting laugh rang upan his bewildered
ears. He saw with his well eye that the
laugh came from John K Redmond, M.
P., for Waterford City, who was near by.
Kenny was subjected to a severe cross-examination.
He admitted that Mahoney at
the time of striking the blow said to him:
"You insulted my mother." He also ad
mitted that he had called Mahony's mother
a "cross-bred Hindoo." j
John E. Iledmond, M. P., took the
stand. His testimony threw no new light
uoon the case, but he remarked with em- i
phasis that any man who used insulting !
language ahout women ought to be
thrashed. The Parne llites applauded this
remark loudly, and glared at Healy.
Mahony was committed for trial before the
Dublin court of commission of oyer and
terminer, on the charge of assault on
Kenny. Bail was accepted.

CHICAGO, Jan. 25. A wedding reception
that was being held last evening at 343
Ogden avenue in honor of the marriage of
Miss Sadie Conley, of St. Louis, and John
Mooney, a jockey at Hawthorne, was rudely
interrupted by Detectives Dick and Egan,
of the Central station. The bride and
groom were arrested while receiving the
congratulations of friends and taken before
Captaiu Shea, who ordered them locked
up for the night. It was the sequel to one
of the most romantic marriages ever re
corded. Daughter of a Millionaire.
Miss Conley, or rather Mrs. Mooney, is
the daughter of a St. Louis millionaire.
Her father, William Conley, is the St.
Louis representative of R. G. Dun & Co.
He lives at 2305 Pine street, and his home
is one of the finest in the fashionable west
end. Mr. Conley and his family have al
ways moved in the best society circles of
St. l.ouis, and the announcement of his
daughter's marriage to a jockey will cause
an upheaval in the town across the bridge.
It was a case of love at first sight. A
proposal of marriage was accepted by Miss
Conley, but, as she had foreseen, her
parents would rot give their consent to the
Outwitted the Stern "Parient."
Last Monday she eloped from St. Louis
and was met by the jockey lover in this
city yesterday morning. Two hours after
her flight the Chicago police were notified
to watch the Alton express upon its ar
rival here, as it was supposed she had
taken that train. Miss Conley and a friend
of Mooney left the train at Brighton Park,
where a carriage was in waiting. In this
way the stern parent and the Chicago po
lice were outwitted. There was trouble
securing a clergyman to tie the knot.

Pater Keeps the Wires Hot.
Telegrams from Miss Conley 's father

into Captain Shea's office all day. Early
in the morning Detectives Dick and Egan
were detailed on the case with instructions
to "stop the marriRge by all means." But, as
stated above, while the officers were wait
ing at the Union station for the girl to
arrive she left the train and was married
in spite of the obstacles that crossed her
path. After much difficulty Dick and
Egan learned that Mooney lived with his
mother at 343 Ogden avenue and drove
there post haste, but too late to prevent the
