According to the report of the Herald,
Pat Hamilton has been paid for his ser
vice as Secretary of the Immigration
Union, the snug sum of $525; and out of
the total expenditure of nearly $3,000,
the press of Phenix received the magnifi
cent sum of $7. Surely they should feel
gratified at the grand work accomplished
by the union. The local press has dene,
and is still doing more for Phenix and its
interests in one week than all the silly
pamphlets and folders would accomplish
during the next two centuries.
Word comes up from the Vekol of a
wonderful strike that was made a few
days ago. The repert says that a
chamber of ore was encountered in which
one man knocked down over fifty tons
of ore in a single day that will mill over
$6000 per ton. The Vekol ore is always
easily mined, and there is nothing re
markable in the amount knocked down,
but the quantity of such phenominally
rich ore is what astonishes even those
who have always banked on that won
derful property. Florence Enterprise.

The New Orleans Picayune professes
to believe that the increase of murders,

crimes in Texas of late is due to the law

Whipple Barracks, November 19.
Word was received here this morning of
the explosion of the boiler of W. Z. Wil
son & Co's saw mill 12 miles from here.
The Associated press reporter at once
repaired to the scene and learned the
following particulars: The pulley needed
repairing and Mr. Wilson, one of the
owners, called' for assistance. The en
gine was stopped, and all the mill hands
came to fix the pulley. J. Baker, the
fireman, was ordered to nil the saw, and
while doing this, the explosion occurred.
A board struck him in the back, knock
ing him in the saw dust pit, where he was
covered by the fallen debris, and a part
of the burst boiler passing over him.
After the lumber had ceased falling he
extricated himself and discovered two or
three mingled bodies. He started at
once for the city. The work of discover
ing and identification of the bodies com
menced. The first discovered was John
Baxter, the foreman, who was killed
where standing, the entire top of his head
blown away and could not be found. The
body of W. Z Wilson, one of the pro
prietors, was cut in two and both parts
thrown fifty feet; his head can not be
found and part of his backbone was
found two hundred feet away on top of
the hill. John Crowley, one of the em
ployes, was found seventy-five feet from
where he was standing, and. could only
be recognized by his clothing. A. Stan
brook was found under the roof of the
wall of the engine room. The bodies of
Charles Collins and.BathoneTaylor could
nnt be foundjfor several hours afterwards.
Collins was found on the hill thirty feet
from where he stood and could only be
recognized by the boots he wore. Tay
lor was found one hundred and fifty feet
from the engine room. The boiler part
ed in the middle, one piece flying ninety
feet north and the other going two hun
dred feet south. A large number of citi
zens visited the place to-day. The
remains were taken to town. The
Coroner's inquest will be held here to
The "phantom party" last evening at
Mining Exchange hall, was one of the
largest attended and most enioyable
social events of the season In common
parlance, it was a sheet and pillow-case

by the young society men, and the
supper, which was contributed by the
matrons, was elegant.
