Tebre HACTE, led., May 4. A special
to The Express from Brazil, Ind.. says:
"Intelligence of a most horrible accident
' near Eel Kiver station south of here has
reached this city. Three men, one named
Mace, another Johnson and the other
name unknown, have been sinking a small
coal shaft. The three men went into their
blacksmith shop at the mouth of the shaft
to do some blacksmithing. While ham
mering a piece of red hot iron a piece of
the heated metal broke ofT and flew into
box near by containing fifty sticks of
dynamite. Instantly there was an explo

tions for several hundred yards about the
When the smoke cleared away neighlors
hurried to the shaft, where a horrible sight
treeted them. The shop and shaft houses
were wrecked, while in tbe ruins lay the
mangled and torn remains of three unfor
tunate men. Two of them were fairly
blown to pieces and were gathered up in a
basket. Mace lived about an hour, when
he, too, died. The three men were very
poor, but frucal, and Lad saved just en

MlLWAVKEL. May 4. The Northwestern
Fuel company's immense sheds at the foot
of Washington stre-t, on the river; fell,
burying in the debris seven workmen, all
f whom were severely injured, but none
fatally. The list of injured is as follows:
W. J. Franey, foreman, left foot hurt, not
ery seriously; Thomas Nelson, carpenter,
foot hurt, quite seriously; Jerry Z:twbozky,
carpenter, cut about the Lead: Conrad An
derson, compound fracture of right arm
and severe internal injuries; I. Xowadow
ski, carpenter, seriously injured about the
head; Charles Kuhnke, scalp wound; Mar
tin Lubraut, badly bruised and prostrated
There is as yet no accountiuc for the ac
cident, but it is supposed that the recent
heavy rains weakened Lhe frail roof, caus
ing it to sag in places, and the constant
rattle and roar of the coal carts in and out
of it shook the structure and caused it to
collapse from its own weight. The dam
age to the company is estimated at iO,OJO,
according to the officers of the company.
CYCLONE IN NORTH CAROLINA.
Many Buildings Destroyed But Only One
KALEIGH, X. C, May 4. Aterrific cy
clone has struck this part of the state. It
destroyed fifteen buildings at Oxford, a
town of 5,000 people forty utiles west of
here. As all telegraph and telephone-wires
are down it is impossible to get particulars
of the calamity. It passed through the
western part of the town near the station
of the Richmond and Danville railroad,
wrecking several large tobacco warehouses,
among them those of King and Smith.
Several persons were caught in the ruins
of the large buildings and one was killed.
One negro who was on the second floor is
dangerously hurt. Four others are badly
injured. The Masonic Orphan's asylum,
in which there are 300 orphans, narrowly
escaped being wrecked, Tbe storm crossed
the tracks of tbe Seaiioard Air Lane at
Greystoue, where it also wrecked several
buildings and badly injured three persons.
, Rational Machinists' Convention.
ISDIAKAPOLIS, May 4. The national ma
chinists are discussing the restriction of
Immigration. It is probable that the con
vention will recommend the establishment
of labor bureaus in the large cities of the
east, which shall devote special attention
to the restriction of undesirable immigra
tion. The request for shorter hours was
also under discussion and the sentiment of
the convention was in favor of asking for
, shorter hours wherever it is practicable to

HARRISON AND THE LEAGUE.
lie Will Not Attend the Meeting at Louis
ville, and Why.
ISDlANAPOLls,May 4. Ex-president Har
rison will not attend the meeting of Re
publican League clubs at Louisville next
week so a correspondent is informed by
good authority but it is not because he
has consulted his own wishes in the mat
ter. The fact is that the ex-president is
very anxious to attend the meeting, and
has been reluctant to consider a proposi
tion that he should not be present. It is
said there are two elements inside the
party who are trying to force him to a
promise that he will remain at home.
One of these elements of course is the
anti-Harrison tection, who can see nothing
in his prospective visit but a Harrison
boom for '14, and their opposition to his
presence is being engineered by no less a
personage than ex-Chairman Clarkson.
They are saying that it would be bad poli
tics for Harrison to show himself.
The other element comprises the best
friends of the general, who have never lost
the hope that he may duplicate Cleve
land's career, bnt they are inclined to favor
a still-hunt for the nomination rather than
a whoop and hurrah campaign. They argue
that his presence would excite the animos
ity of the anti-Harrison element and would
cause an opening of all the old wounds.
SITUATION AT HONOLULU-
Provisional Government Appears To Be
on Its Last I.et.
HoXOLrLU. April 23.-Via San FranJ
Cisco, May 4. The outlook hasn't brigbt
ened here since the last mail left. There
is a decrease in royalist talk of immediate
restoration of the queen, but no one can
fail to see that the provisional government
is losing ground, and that many of its for
mer adherents are going over to the ranks
of the rovalists. The whole thing can tie
put in this sentence: There are not enough
offices to go around among the white men,
and those that are left out are determined
that the missionary party, which is now in
control, shall not turn over the country to
Uncle Sam, and thereby have the call for
fat federal positions.
The provisional party is very groggy, to
nse a prize ring expression. It is paying
out SlO.OtO monthly to preserve law and
order and it is finding great difficulty in
laising this money. The latest device of
the royalists to discredit the government is
to refuse to pay taxes. This they swear
they will carry out on July 1. When they
become due it will be interesting to see
how the provisional leaders will force them
to pay. '
The Sherman Bill Not Kegponsible.
New Yokk, May 4. The World says that
Senator J. K. Jones, of Arkansas, said
when asked if the Sherman bill was re
sponsible for the large expoitation of gold:
"It is not. The balance of trade has been
agaiust us, and that accounts iu great
measure for the exportations. I do not
anticipate a repeal of the law next session.
unless a satisfactory substitute is offered.
I opposed it when it was brought before
the senate, because I do not believe in mak
ing a commodity of silver. I would suggest
a return to the Viand law if a compromise
is to be n-a I tardlv think a free silver
bill will become a law next session or dur
ing the administration of President Cleve
land." Man Wanted by Clans Spreckel.
San" Fkaxcisco, May 4. Advices from
Honolulu say that Claus Spreckels was in
terviewed shortly after his arrival in Hon
olulu on April 19. He said, among other
things: "The monarchy cannot be restored.
If I could find a man of ability whom I
could trust I would favor a republic. An
nexation would involve another point that
of Japanese suffrage. I tell the people that
it is absurd to think that the United
States constitution can be changed to per
mit Asiatic suffrage."

And ITnion I-abor Required to Show Why

the Supreme Court Ruling; as to the Co
Employe Liability Laws Trouble at
Homestead Caused by Improved Ma
chinery. Cincinnati, May 4. Three weeks ago
the cabinetmakers of Huss Bros.'s furni
ture factory struck for nine hours and ten
hours' pay. They got it, but promptly
struck again, demanding that all the non
union men be discharged. This was re
fused, and the factory has been practically
idle since. The Furniture Manufacturers'
exchange at a meeting determined to send
one or more men from the respective fac
tories in proportion to their own force to
start up Huss Bros.
Men Refusing Were Discharged.
The men were accordingly sent, drawing
pay from their employers and privileged
to return when the Huss Bros, factory
was supplied with men of their own. Xo
discrimination was made between union
and non-union men. All but four of the
men thus sent refused to work for Huss
Bros. Those refusing were promptly dis
charged. Seeking work at other factories
they were told they must bring cards from
their former employers showing why they
To Be Brought to an Issue.
This card system has been unanimously
agreed upon by the Manufacturers' ex
change and the unions have taken the
matter up. The manufacturers have de
termined to stand together and succor each
other as far as possible. The unions pro
pose to bring the matter to an issue at
once. A general strike is expected. The
cabinet workers number :200 men, but if
they strike it will affect 7,500 others in the
repairing and carpentering departments.
WHAT EUGENE DEBS THINKS
About That Decision on the State Co-Em
Terre Haute. Iud., May 4. The decis
ion by the tinted States supreme court
against the co-employe liability laws is
looked upon by Eugene Debs, president of
the American Railway union, as the most
significant decision affecting labor yet ren
dered by the courts. He is the father of
the idea, which has been incorporated into
laws in Ohio, Indiana, Colorado, Georgia,
and perhaps one or two other states. He
introduced the first measure of the kind
in the Indiana legislature eight years ago,
but it did not become a law until last win
ter and then in an amended form, after
the railroad companies had spent the win'
ter lobbying against it.
The decision that the question of the lia
bility of a railroad company for damages
wuere injuries are toe result or negligence
of a co-employe is to le settled by the gen
eral law ami not by the local lav of the
state wherein tbe action arises Mr. Debs
thinks is a declaration that deprives the
employe of any hope of protection and ren
tiers nugatory au state laws of this charac
ter. It is, he thinks, a serious warning of
the purpose of tbe supreme court of the
United States to encroach upon state au
STRIKE IN THE HOMESTEAD MILL.
by Improved Machinery That
Was No I'se to the Men.
PlTTsnriSG, May 4. The recent reduc
tion of the wages of some twenty-five men
who struck, or, as loth they and the firm
prefer to call it, quit work, at the Carnegie
Homestead steel works has caused consid
erable excitement among the employes.
The incident was the outgrowth of the
adoption of improved machinery. The
strike occurred among the heaters, crane
men, tongsmen and others employed in a
mill where recent improvements practically
double the output with fewer men.
The readjustment of wages and number
of men proved unsatisfactory to the latter,
who did not share in the benefit of the n
creased output. The extensive improve
ments in the Carnegie plants is causing
much uneasiness among mill workers in
general. They fear that it may become im
possible for their employers to compete
with the Carnegies without cutting wages
Mcl'herson on the Financial Situation,
Washington, May 4. Senator McPher-
son of Xew Jersey, who is here for a few '
days prior to his departure for the sum-
mer, being a member of the finance com-
mittee, has watched the financial situation !
closely. "I do not believe, said he, "that
there is anything in . the money situation
that will necessitate the president calling
an extra session oi congress earlier than
he intended probably Sept. 35. The finan
cial condition of the country is all right if
the jieople will only let it alone."
Just So; Why Was This Thus?
Washington, May 4. A prominent sen
ator is inquiring why it was that the ex
president and ex -vice president of the
United States had not participated in the
naval review and the opening of the
World's fair. Whether Harrison or Mor
ton were invited to the naval review or the
opening of the World's fair is not definite
ly known here. The fact is of course plain
that neither of them attended either cere
mony. The query is why?
Ah Sin Girls Very Captivating.
San Francisco, May 4. A correspandent
of The Daily Ktport writes his pajer from
Honolulu that the marriage of Comman
der tVhiting, of the United States steamer
Alliance, to Miss Etta Etta Ah Fong,
daughter of a wealthy Chinese merchant
there, has been fixed for early next Septem
ber. "Positively the very latest and choic
est bit of gossip iu Honolulu social circles,
the correspondent adds, "grows out of the
marked attention paid to Miss Marie, eld

Mr. Mills, the young Virginian who acts
