CO0HI8E REVIEW : SATDEDAY EVENING. MARCH 2. 1901
Something Awful to Contemplate
Men Burned to Deaah On the
An Old Man Attacked on the Rail
road Track and Left for Dead.
Cheyenne, Wyo., Feb. 20 The worst I
disaster in tho history of coal mining
in Wyoming since the Alray horror
eight years ago, occurred at Diamond
ville last night when a fire broke out
in mine No. I, of the Diamondvillo
Coal Co., which was attended with
great loss of lifo and destruction of
property. Twenty six miuors perished
and their charred" bodies are still in
the mines. Tho fire was discovered
shortly aftor the night shift commenc
ed woi'k. Its cause is not known, but
the llames made such progress that only
one man escaped from the two entries
in which they were confined. His
name is John Anderson and he was
frightfully burned in running the gaunt
let of the flames. He is unable to give
any account of the accident, other than
he was suddenly confronted by a wall
of fire and smoke. Wrapping his head
in an overcoat he ran in the direction
of the main entrance.
The first intimation that tbo miners
in the other entries had of tho fire was
when Anderson came rushing into the
upper levels, his clothing in tlames. He
fell unconcious and was carried to the
mouth of the mine. The alarm was
sounded and hundreds of minors at
work in the mines and outside rushed
to tho rescue of the imprisoned com
rades. The fires had by this time made
such progress that it was impossible to
enter the rooms.
The entire night was spent in con
fining the fire to the two entries and
this morning it was necessary to seal
them up to prevent tho flames from
spreading to other parts of the mine.
This step was only decided upon after
all hope of saving the lives of the men
had been abandoned. Nothing could
live five minutes in such a fire, which
was increasing in its fierceness every
minute, The plugging of the two en
tries will smother the lire but it may
'be several days before tho barricades
oan be removed and the chamber ex
On Monday last, FraDk Swift, an old
man who has been an inmate of the
county hospital, was en reute from
Tombstone to Bisbee and had reached
a point near Packard station on. the
railroad, when he was attackod by two
unknown Mexicans. He was knocked'
down and robbed and was kicked,
stoned, and beaten into insensibility.
I His hands and feet were bound togeth
er with a strong cord and he was car
ried a distance of 200 yards from the
track and left to die. Tho unfortunate
i man remained there for almost thirty
six hours before his cries attracted any
one to him. Finally, Joe Lafevbre, sec
tion foreman, heard his cries for help
and went to the spot and released the
pr'soner. He was suffering terrible
agony for water and his hands and feet
were swolen to almost twice their nor
Mr. Lafevbre, assisted by Francisco
Frederico, brought the crippled old
fellow to Bisbee where ho received
proper attention and was out on the
street Wednesday and Thursday, en
deavoring to recognize tho two men
who attacked him. A warrant was
sworn out for the arrest of the Mexi

During the whole period of the ex
istence of the Andrew opera company,
fifteen consecutive successful seasons,
they have never carried so evenly bal
anced a company, nor presented as at
tractive a repertoire of opera as they
are doing this season. Always aiming
to give the best possible in their line,
ani always succeeding to a remarkable
degree, it is the universal verdict of
the press of the ofties where they have
appeared this season that the company
is stronger in every respect than ever
before. This is the highest compliment
that could be paid them. The cast,
taken all tho way through, is without
a weak point; the chorus is made up of
extremely pretty girls with good sing
ing voices. The costumes are all new
and handsome, tho orchestra fine, and
the performance moves with a snap
and precision that is refreshing. They
appear here at the Bisbee opera house
for two nights, Saturday and Sunday,
March 2d and 3d.
Constable Johnson, with the assist
ance of "Nancy" made a haul in the

five "hoinbres" and four "Terressas".
