Here, are huddled sm all hamlets of ' the' mine workers who operate tbe "most : productive coal mines in France. - The subter ranean chambers form a series of tunnels. Six of .tbe . outlets are near Lens. -'- - ! " ' ' 'i'-r;; The output of these mines is par ticularly combustible, and is large ly used in the manufacture of gas and In smelting. About 2,000 min ers work the group of mines, and with their families ". make a popula tion of from 6,000 to 8,oco souls. Tbe explosion took place shortly after 1795 men had descended into the mine this morning.,, There was a deafening explosjoo, which was followed by the cages and 'mining apparatus being horled from - the mouth of "the Courrieres mine: Men and horses Jnear by . outside the mine were -either stunned or kill ed. Tbe roof of the mine office was torn off. .. Immediately after the explosion flames burst from the mouth or the pit, driving back those who sought to enter, and dooming those witbio The. families of the entombed miners crowded the shaft seeking fathers or husbands, and threaten ing, in their efforts to obtain de tails, to force back the. gendarmes who kept them from the mouth of the pit. The populace of the die trict is appalled by the disaster, which effects every household. Those " persons who were rescued were terribly burned. ,. The latest estimates place those taken out at 59i. Throughout the afternoon the efforts were continu ed, but nightfall brought conviction that the entombed men had been suf focated, and the dispatch from Lille at 8:45 p. m. announcing tbe cum ber of the dead at 1193 appears, io remove the last hope that others may be brought to the surface alive. The cages in which the miners descended in to pits 2, 3 and 4 were at .7 o'clock this morning hurled about 30 feet from the mouth of the shaft. A miner working near the mouth was killed and a horse was blown into the air. Some of the imprisoned miners sought to escape to the pits which remained intact and several rescues were made. The firet cages came up at 10 o clock with about a dozen and a half suffocated men, who were promptly taken to the hospital. . Toward noon wounded workmen were "brought" in baskets and the bodies of. two dead men were taken from pit 10. - It was feared the re mainder had been asphyxiated. Assistance rfached Courriere from al! sections of the department, and a large force of volunteers tock part in the (fforts made to rescue the entombed miners, lecover the bodies of the killed and help in the work of the salvage.
