expressed & hope for th 6 future, believing
the canal would be bnilt through some

Preparation for the Funeral of the Crested
Unite Victims—The Two Bodies in the
Mine Cannot be lieeovered—Tha Dead
Sent to Their Friends-Serious Coasting:
Denveb, Col., Jan. 28.— Since early morn
ing Inspector MoNeal and assistant have
continued search for tho two missing bod
ies which are buried under a mass of de
bris somewhere in the blaok depths of the
Crested BitteP mine, but without success.
The mine is now rapidly filling with the
fatal gas, and the searchers are obliged to
proceed with extreme caution, and even
then at imminent peril to their lives.
The coroner's inquest was resumed at 10
this morning. The evidence of three wit
nesses was heard, and all agreed that had
tho rules of the mine been properly ob-
served by the miners the terrible accident
n6ver would have occurred. All speak
in the highest terms of the management,
their extreme caution and care for the
miners. The inquest will be resumed this
evening. The funeral of John Rutherford,
Jacob Loux, Dan McDonald and L. W.
Smith occurred this afternoon. The cere
monies were conducted by the Masonic
and Odd Fellows' societies. The huge
morgue is nearly completed and bodies are
being taken there three at a time in a
sleigh, from the company's black
smith shop, and placed in rows on the
floor of the morgue.

pablished here to-morrow to the effect that
though the Union Pacific, Burlington and
Denver & Rio GraDde have ordered a res
toration of freight rates on Utah business,
to go into effect to-day, they have beea un
able to carry the order into effect by reaßon
of the operation of the western trunk line
agreement. That the roads in this agree
ment, connecting with the Un'on Pacific
at Omaha, by reason of its term 3 are per
mitted to make rates west
bound, and they refuse, pendiag
the negotiations with the Burlington,
to bill freight through to Utah points at
any other than the out rate 3 which havo
been prevailing. It is stated that Com
| missioner Vining to-night telegraphed the
chairman of the committee at eastern
points that western trunk line roads did j
not accept tLe Utah agreement,- and will
insist on Utah freight being held at cut
rates. It is claimed here that the action
of the Union Pacific in the matter is either
for the purpose of getting out of the late
agreement, or k is led into the trap of
violating its conditions by the Burling;cm.

yards into the pit, and found two corpses. One
was that of Manager Thomas, who led the first
rescuing party. Manager Thomas was awarded
the Albert medal for heroism on consideration of
bravery in rescuing imprisoned minere a few
years ago.
Pjris, Jan, 2S, —The chamber of depu
ties to-day debated the interpellation of
f erred by Lanfjlois regarding the econom
ical policy of the government and the que3
tions affecting the vorkingmen. Minister
Ferry said he recognized the gravity of the
labor crisis in Paris. It would be difficult,
he thought, to remedy it. The excsG3 of
building had produced a criei3 in the build
ing trade, and it would be imprudent to
open new building yards. The govern
ment was considering a bill to open a
credit for the agrisulturists. The crisis
is not general, but confined to Paria. Ferry
referred to the causes which led to the cri
sis, notably the rate of wages,
which he said was too high.
He thought too great profits were ex
pected. We cannot, he said, clo3e our
frontiers. We expoot twelve hundred
million of francs worth of articles more
than we impott, and it is impossible to ex
clude foreign workmen from France, for
Frenchmen are allowed to work in foreign
countries. Daring the last five years six
million'francs were spent on buildings in
Paris, for which it is found difficult to get
tenants, as the continuance of the folly of
building would be madness. The chamber
ought not to commence giving alms. The

The company, while in no sense brilliant,

The regular monthly meeting of the"
Congregational club was held in the Nic

This society is composed of laymen and
minis ters, who hold alternate meetings in
Minneapolis and St. Paul on tho fourth
Monday in eaoh month, for the purpose of
cultivating social intercourse and
of promoting the spiritual
interests of the congrega
tional ohurch. It has about ninety mem
bers on its roll. Montioello, NorthfieW,
Dulnth, Brainerd, Stillwater, and othei
towns in the state are represented. The
object of last evening's meeting was to
ascertain a knowledge of the standing or"
the Scandinavian ohurches of Minnesota.
The Norwegians were represented by Prof.
Oftedal, of Augsbnrg seminary, and tho
Swedes by Dr. Wei berg, of Worcester,

auspices of the Lutheran Evangelical
Being asked what was the difference in
doctrine between tho Lutheran and the
Congregational churches he answered that
the Lutherans believe in con3ubatantia
tion. Why do Scandinavians go to church
more than Americans? askbd one of the
members. Because they are bettor people,
said the doctor. This answer created iond
and long continued laughter in which the
doctor heartily joined. Being again asked
why they were better people than the
Americans he explained the matter by say
ing that the first thing learnsd by the
Swedish children when th<*y enter school is
a knowledge of Christ and the Bible. When
they hear a church bell ring they uncover
their heads in reverence. The ministers
saemod to think that the answers oontained
much truth and asked no more
questions. Dr. M. N. G. Dana, of St.
Paul, then delivered an address of wel

A Race "Without Human
Friendship. „■ '
"Grath," interviewing an. American just re
torned from Mexico, .says:
"What is this curse of the Apaches you ,
speak about? How many Apaches are there?"
' "It is believed that there are now only
sixty-five, but every one of them is a most
determined and successful murderer. In the
revolutions which have occurred in the north
ern states of Mexico the people have been re
fused permission to bear arms, and conse
quently four or five of the Apaches, well
armed, can come in and slaughter a whole
town. There is no doubt that a very large
portion of the country, not only in Sonora,
but in Arizona, once populated with good set
tlements, has been laid waste and returned to
nature by these Apaches. Fifty years ago
they were a somewhat powerful nation, I
have been told, well armed, and disposed to
be friendly to the Americans, but terriflic
marauders on Mexico They would ride hun
dreds of miles into Mexico, and were cruel as
the grave. They seemed to delight in blot
ting out every vestige of man's hops and
thrift. ' ■
In time quarrels arose between them and
the Americans, and they were roughly
handled; and if the United States govern
ment would let our Gringo men get at them
they would very soon be extinct. But the
United States, guided by eastern sentiment,
would rather see whole counties of America
perish than one Apache. Gen. Crook went
recently from the San Carlos reservation
into Mexico and brought out the squaws and
invalids and all . those who were a burden
to the warriors. From that time to this
the little vestiga of assassins have
been free to extend their out
rages. The camp where I slept a week, ago
was raided by Apaches the next night, and
five out of eight men killed. They under
stand fully the imbecility of the American
executive. They will bury their arms and
come into camp to be fed when they have
hard times, and then go out and dig their
guns and scatter themselves over hundreds of
miles, < willingly going 200 miles to kill oil
man. They are armed with the best class of
guns, frequently with repeating Winchester
or Henry rifles, for which they pay the high
est rates, taking the money from the bodies
of thoss they have killed. .i-
A few young men, say sent from Colorado
or California,' investigate the mining resour
ces of the Sierra Madre mountains, and they
carry on their bodies the gold they expect to
use. They go to sleep in a wild waste, with
no one near, and that ii-the last ever known
of them in this world. Their gold watches
and gold chains go to buy the finest cartridges
made in the United States. Whenever you
kill an Apache you find that he has the stand
ard ammunition of America, labeled U.
S. The Apache, while not 4' a very
tall Indian, is very powerful and sinewy, in
durated to that hot climate and burned al
most as black as a negro. He does not wear
anything upon his body, except a horse tail
perhaps over his head. He is fleet on foot
and a good rider. He has no friendship with
any human race of beings. Blood and mur
der are his trade. The Mexicans are as
afraid as death of these few Indians. The
Americans merely want that military arm to
be taken off which at present is the protection
of these fiends. The Apaches who were
brought up to the San Carlos reservation by
Gen. Crook had $5,000 ,in sold, some of it
American coin, and a large collection of the
watches of lone travelers."
"Are your general impressions favorable to
Mexico, both from what you have seen and
have heard?"
"Very unfavorable. It is a land hot,
almost barren, ragged, full of ignorance,
without comforts, with nothing that I can see
to tempt our people in there. Of course, men
will go for gold at ail hazards; but that has
not yet been found in quantities sufficient to
dazzle anybody."
Queen Elizabeth in Effigy at Wes
minster Abbey. >; ft
[Aunt Judy's Magazine.]
After this royal couple we come to the only
ono of these old waxworks which anybody, I
think, could call ghastly. It represents
Queen Elizabeth, and was made probably in
1700 to supersede the former one, which by
the time was quite worn out; but though thus
comparatively modern,it of course was copied
from its predecessor, and is so like the face
on the queen's tomb that one cannot help be
lieving it to be a good portrait. But it is a
very repulsive one.
The light falls through a pane of glass in
the top of the press on a drawn, greenish face,
with little gray eyes turned blankly upwards
in a glassy stare, arched eyebrows and a high,
hooked nose. The pursed-up mouth and
wrinkled cheeks are those of an old woman;
it is as if the spell, which by her strong will
and her mingled common sense and vanity,
the virgin queen cast all her life over
those around her, had passed away;
when she was dead men were no
longer afraid to represent her as she really
looked in her last years. There is something
very uncanny about her altogether; in fact,
the waxen face is painfully like that of a
corpse and this unpleasant effect is heightened
by her gorgeous dress, with the tall, ruff
standing up around her dingy neck, which ia
covered with more festoons of huge false
pearls than one fancies human —or even, her
waxen—neck could carry. However, her
majesty holds her chin so disdainfully high
in the air and has drawn up her neck so
royally that there is room on it for more
adornments than there would bo on most
people's. A small crown is perched jauntily
over her forehead. Her dress is very elabo
rate; a crimson satin petticoat, set but by
such an enormous farthingale that it gives
her very much the effect which panniers do to
a donkey; a pointed bodice, covered with
rather. coarse silver embroidery, and over it
a velvet | train, of which, whatever color it
may once have been—sky blue, very likely—
we can only say that it is gray now. In her
slender hands are the sceptre and orb—sym
bols, with 5 Elizabeth, iof a very real sover

[Croffut in Boston Globe.]
A few days ago, while eating a plate of
hash at Crook's, Thomas Powell, the veteran
editor of Frank Leslie's, pulled out a stool at
my side and ordered a plate of similar am
brosia. (I ought to explain that Crook's hash
is to be classed with the ortolans and wood
cock of the average hotel table.) Knowing
that Mr. Powell had been a boon companion
and trusted friend of the Irish rebels who fled
to this country after '48,1 asked him if he
had ever joined in any of the Fenian plots
against the British government.
"Well," he said, after a pause, during which
; he a
j cau't i lyit When John 8a
' as president of the Fenians, visited Ireland
J some y>:-ar.s ago, I commissioned him to carry
I off from Windsor castle Queen Victoria and
j the Srinccb-s Beatrico, the stipulation b^ing
! that I was to have the princess for inventing
the plot and he was to havo the old woman
for executing it. He came home without
them, excusing his breach of faith by declar
ing that he had searched all over Irelin 1 an i
couldn't find Windsor castle. This is the
only time I ever knew John Savage to fail to
keep an engagement." Then we ordered
beer and drank a bumper to John.

"Buckwheat cakes!" said a man in a down
town restaurant. "Wheat cakes!" said an
other man by his side. In a short time the
waiter brought three broad, thin disks, that
were white within and- a crisp brown with
out, to each man. In looks the cakes were
exactly alike. A man with a sensitive taste
could have determined after one or two trials
that they did not taste alike.
"I ordered buckwheat just because the
name brings up pleasant memories." said
one. "Here is a case in which evolution has
ruined the thing evoluted. When I was a
boy my father used to carry buckwheat to
mill and bring back a grayish flour. My
mother mixed it up at night, and the next
morning I sat down to breakfast before a
heap — but no matter. We won't talk
about it."
"Yes, but you said sometl in: about the
evolution spoiling the thing evoiub.-d. What
was the thing evoluted?"
"The buckwheat flour. The buckwheat of
my youth was cleaned and then ground be
tween the stones like any other grain. Not
long ago a man who wanted to make a beau
tiful flour to look at concluded that he could
do so if he could entirely remove the shuck
from the kernel of buckwheat. To do this he
made a machine that consists of four serrated
or corrugated rollers. Two are placed at the
end of a screen over which the grain passes,
and as the grain drops between them it gets a
nip that breaks it up and separates about all
the meats from the husks. Then the meats
drop through a short screen, and the husks
pass on through the second set of rollers.
They are further broken up, and the remain
ing meats are separated. The meats are
ground and this white tasteless stuff is the
"That was only the complaint of a man who
thinks that there are no times like the old
times," said a flour dealer to whom the above
was related. "If he wants ground husks in
stead of clean flour ho can get it, and for less
money. Few mills now grind the shucks and
all together, but the flour is to be had. If
the new process flour was not better than tha
old it would not now be taking the lead."
The Indian Was There.
A private letter from Dart mouth college to
The Boston Transcript says: "We heard
Matthew Arnold hero about a week ago.
There was a large audience present. Nearly
every one was satisfied. A curious little in
cident happened after tho lecture. Prof.
Parker gave him a reception, aud during a
conversation Arnold was told that this
college was founded for the education
of the Indian, and that ther-3 was one
here at present. Mr. Arnold expressed
a desire to see him, as he had never seen
an Indian. So Eastman, who is a full
blooded Sioux, and afina specimen of his race,
was summoned. He came into the room,
cool, collected and master of the situation,
whereas Mr. Arnold was completely non
plussed. Whether his fancy had pictured a
wild man, fierce with war paint and toma
hawk in hand; is not known; but at all events
he colored up like a boy, held out his hand,
and stammered out—his British egotism corn
ing up unawares—'Ah! ehl ah! you were
there—you were there. How did you like it<'
(referring to his lecture). It was an amusm;?
sight to see the best representative of English
culture so at a loss, and the young educated
Indian standing before him so calm, collected
and even stoical. I believe Arnold has, in
some of his writings, doubted whether the
education of the Indian was practicable."
Robbed by the Man He Prayed For.
[Norfolk Landmark.]
Mr. Hoyt, a Methodist minister, attending
conference at Statesville, N. C, a short time
ago, was asked by a stranger, who met him
on the street, to go a little distance and pray
with a dying man. Instantly responding to
this request, Mr. Hoyt was led to an obscure
place and shown the person said to bo dying,
who was lying in the street. Upon kneeling
to pray with and for the prostrate man, the
preacher was seized around the neck by the al
leged sufferer, and held while the confederate
robbed him of about §400 in money and what
valuables he had on his person. Mr. Hoyt
had the money to turn over to the conference,
with his annual report of collections for vari
ous purposes.
