Chicago, July 17. The report! that auditions! proceedings for contempt of ourt ware likely to be taken by the federal authorities against President Debs and bis assoolate officer of the A B. IT. filled the government building this morning, Justice Sea mans of Mil' waukee, In the absenoe of Judge Gross- cup, presided. President Debs, accompanied by W. TV. Erwin, the noted criminal lawyer of Bt. Paul; W. A. Shoemaker of St. Paul, Erwln's law assoolate, and by 8. 8. Gregory of this olty who has been re tained as special oounsel for the union, were present. The Information against the accused was read by Dlrtrlot Attorney Mil- hrlst, and when he had oonoludcd there ensued a long discussion between aim and the oounsel for the defendants. finally Judge Seamans out the discus sion short bv orderinK the issuanoe of attachments for contempt against Debs, Howard, Kellherjmd Rogers, The write of attachment were made returnable at S o'clock. Instructions Were given Marshal Arnold, however, to waive personal service with the un derstanding that the defendants .would voluntarily surrender them' elves. Within fifteen minutes after the reassembling of the court Debs, How ard, Kellher and Rogers were on hand. lAttornew Erwin led off the proceedings with a fiery speech, in which he de clared that the defendants had been guilty of no contempt, and stated that In event of the court ruling otherwise they would refuse to give ball and (would accept the alternative of going to Jail. He Insisted that the injunction pre' vlously issued would not hoi 1 water, and intimated the Intention of the de fense to file a demurrer both against the Injunction and the Indictment at the proper time. He said that the mem' tiers of the American Railway union laid down their tools' as their only way to correct their grievances. When these men did this lawless men broke cut and did overt acts. The issue ' Would be raised at the proper time t whether capitalistic tyranny could in i troduce the methods of a British mon ; srchy. The conscience of the court was feeing whipped ter resort to extreme,, and Unjustifiable methods. ,' ' Mr. Brwln said that Debs and his as sociates were already under bail In . ten thousand dollars each to answer In dlctments preferred by the grand Jury and that they would not give additional bail on the charge of contempt. It would be sufficient if they were out on their own recognizance to appear Whenever wanted, Counsel Walker, in behalf of the gov ernment, said that day after day these jnen had willfully violated the InjunC' tlon directed against them. They could not raise the question of jurisdiction until they had purged themselves of their contempt The government urged speedy hearing and asked that these defendants be held to bail in a sum which the court might deem sufficient not only to insure their attendance, but also to prevent any further aggravated Violations of the court s order. , Mr. Erwin said: "We are in con' tempt of an order which we claim is a Void order. A hearing should have been had en the temporary Injunction to-day, bat no notice was Issued." Judge Seaman said: "Because you propose to move a modification of the , Injunction that is no reason why the de fendant should not be in contempt for Violation during its temporary continu ance." : Lawyer Gregory, in behalf of the union leaders, said that if time permit ted he would be prepared to demon strate that the Information failed to chow any violation of the injunction. It was not .violation for employes to peaceably leave the service of a rail road. The Information failed to show that the defendants had used either threats or intimidation. It was neces sary to prove that they were in con tempt before they could be punished for It.-. V,;,.. -. r .. -' A. desultory discussion between the Court and counsel followed. Judge Sea man wanted to know how much time the defense wanted to answer the in formation. , v Counsel for the defendants asked that ' the case should be' set for Monday. To this Mr. Walker, who wanted to leave town on Saturday, objected. . Judge Seaman, however, said that reasonable time should be allowed, and thereupon fixed the hearing for 10 oolook on Monday morning. - He added that each of the four defendants should find satisfactory sureties in the sum of ' 18,000 each - to appear on Monday. General' Counsel Peok of the Santa Fe road argued that a similar bail should apply to the information filed in be half of that corporation, but Judge Seaman ruled that one bond would be tufnoient w The ruling of the court was received with a buss of astonishment on the part of the spectators. Debs, Howard, Kellher and Rogers retired to a cor ner of the room and hell a ong con sultation with their attorneys. Finally Mr. Erwin announced that the prison ers would refuse to give 'ball. A score or more 6f friends eustered around them And urged themto recede from their determination. .One of the num ber said he was worth half a million ftol)ars and would go ball for the en- tire 'miartet, 'Debs, however, was' obturate- and; In : Ms determination he .Was supported by his associates. .

C, July 17. The tariff conference committee have oome to a disagreement aud so will report to both branches of congress. This was practically determined upon before tbey adjourned last night, and at the short session of tbe conference this morning It was dooldcd to cull In the re publican members of the conference. The demooratlo conference adjourned until 2 o'olock after Issuing Invitations to the republicans to be present. The fact that a disagreement had been reached and that a report would be made soon spread, and then the ques tion arose as to what branch of congress would the first report be made. It was a remarkable fuct that very few members of congress knew the ex- act position of the bill, many senators claiming fapat the bill had been sent to the senate when the house disagreed, but the representatives claimed It was still in the house. . It was officially stated, however, that the bill was In the hunds of the confer ence committee, bnt that "the papers in the case" were still in the house, the bill having been sent direct from the house to conference, and therefore the first report would be made to the house, and after it had acted the bill would go to the senate. The republican members of the con ference committee have decided that if the democratic ' conference committee have agreed upon a report of total disagreement, then there will be no de lay in the conference after the full conference meets. The democrats will be called to ex plain their position, but noobjectlon will be made to an early report on disagreement. If, however, the democrats wish to report" any agreements the republicans will insist upon a vote on each in conference. But the best advice re ceived by th republicans from the oon fernce committee is that the democrats will report a total disagreement rather than open the way to prolonged delay in ithe oommlttee room and on the floor of either house or senate. It is not expeoted that there will be much delay over the . report in the house, because it will be greeted with, a vote to insist upon the house bill and against the senate amendments. In the senate the republican leaders have determined not to fight the bill at this stage. While the minority are op posed to the passage of the bill and have determined to fight it to the bitter end, they think it best on this first report to let the democrats fight it among themselves, and so the debate will be an airing of democratic grievances and the 'conservatives" or sugar trust demo crats will have to stand up and fire their own guns to, insist upon the retention of the sugar trust schedule and the plac ing of duties on raw materials. This will be a great political move on the part of the republicans, and show up the sugar trust democrats. Af ter the bill has gone back to the con ference and come out again, then the rpublican senators will take up the fight to beat it. . , v .. It is said that the report of the gen' eral disagreement will be made to the house as soon as Speaker Crisp ' re' turns. This may be to-morrow. It will hardly be delayed longer.

Altogether there were 102 present, The largo room was decorated with American and British flogs and with the arms of every state of the union Behind Mr. Bayard stood a stuffed eagle with wings outspread. Above the eugle was a replica of Bartholdl's statue of Liberty, with an electric light in the uplifted hand. The menu was printed on parchment. On the red seal cover was the word "Yale" in the center of an American banner. Inside were the names of the team in fanciful designs and the Tale yell. On the back were a picture of ancient London and the names of the banquet committee. At about 1 a. m. Consul General Collins, who acted as vice chairman, gracefully introduced Mr. Bayard, who was re ceived with cheers. Mr. Bayard said "Gentlemen, friends and fellow countrymen We are all friends. Al though we are all not fellow-countrymen, we were once. I shall never for get this, oocasion. If I did not think it a serious play upon words I would give expression to the distortion 'Tale fel lows well met.' Laughter.

There to only one toast 'to night and one reply. It was not barren victory that struck the shield of the strongest that went into the lists to win or lose in the friendly! contests on Mon day. Honors were easy, , but victory was not. Whoever won won" by quail ties that ought to win. One fact in the heart and mind of every man present was 'Fair field and no favor. " Turning toward the Tale men, Mr, Bayard continued: "I read the hopes of the future in these hearts. Tou come from America with hope. Tou will not leave England with despair. Tou came to oppose the best athletes that England 'could produce. Tou go home with a resolve to come again in greater force and with greater success." Mr. Bayard then proposed- the toast to the Tale team, making special men tion of Captain Hlckok. Songs by De callu and Mme. Daqumar of New York followed. Amid rousing cries and cheers for Hlckok the Tale captain rose and spoke modestly as follows: "I do not know what to say. It Is not much any way. The team came over to see what they could lo with their English cousins. They, left Mew Tork, had a good voyage, trained at Oxford, the games came off on Monday and contrary to expectation we lost. We hope that the outcome Will be bet ter next time. I do not think that the weather had much to do with It, in spite of the excuses of our friend.

I feel deeply honored for that mean that the name and fame of our country shall not at my hands be dis paraged." ' : .;- Yi''y.-.i j Songs and chatting followed until 3 a: m.

Tho most hor rible accident that has occurred about the mine In this region took place at 8 Stockton mine this morniiiK. Two hun dred stloks of dynamite exploded among a crowd of men who were preparing to go to their day's work. All of these un fortunates were shattered and torn to fragments. The exact number killed is not positively known at this writing, but It Is placed at between eight and eleven.' The true cause of the explosion will never be known, as none of the men are living. It occurred at about 7 o'clock. The men were descending the slope at the time and distributing themselves In the various chambers and gangways where they are employed. At the bottom of the slope Charles O'Donnell, who looked after the explo sives and supplies for the loaders and other company workmen, was busy deal ing out dynamite and caps to the load era and starters. The latter came to him In groups usually, and between eight and ten of these workmen were standing about him at the time. The driver boys, who had come down earlier, had already passed in the mule way and were cleaning and harnessing their teams In the stable which is built In the Wharton gangway, about one hundred yards from the bottom of the slope. These boys were the only per sons who were in the vicinity at the time, and the first intimation of an ac cident that they received was the ter rific report of the explosion. The concussion It caused was so se vere as to knock the mules and drivers about in the stable. The place was fill ed with dust .and ' flying debris. All lights were extinguished. The men were demoralized for a time and did not know which way to turn. Although the explosion took place about three hundred yards below the surface, the shock was felt over an area of surface extending to the lumber yards, three miles south, and in the ad joining mine, No. 2 Stockton. From the latter mine a rescuing party rushed through subterranean passages to No. 8. As these nen approached the bottom of the ill-fated slope they came W iWitb the drivers and other laborers groping about in the darkness. Pushing forward toward the bottom, they oamp upon a scene which baffles description. Huge timbers were twist ed and torn and scattered about pro miscuously. Rocks and debris were everywhere. Over all was strewn hu man1 flesh, legs and arm of the unfor tunate victims, and ftSf -the jagged sfdes hung two shattered bodies. Hot one of the several bodies-was left suffl ciently Intact to permit identity. By this time the news became current on tne surface. The nature of the ae cident was evident and the wildest excitement took possession of the vil lagers. Men and women flocked about the dark slope mouth in hundreds. Wive and sweethearts of th'e unfortu nate men ran, aimlessly. .about crying tor aid and ror their loved ones. Rescuing parties were formed imme diately. A number of miners were low ered Into the pit and on the return cage ascended tne men and boys who had escaped the terrible disaster. These were covered with dirt and dust. They were eagerly besieged by anx lous friends, but to the friends of the men still below they could offer no con solation. Telegrams were sent to Ha sleton and surrounding towns. Many or tne men employed In No. 8 lived at Hasleton,. and the report created great excitement In that city. Crowds of people hastened to the slope and added to the excitement, which was already agonising. Superintendent Roderick was earlv on the scene and descended with a par ty of miners, and the work of collecting the remains commenced. From time to time 'men came up from below to get iresn air and revive their spirits. SEW RECORDS MADE. HDCW via onaenui w ora rrom a flying Start. Waltham, Mass., July 17.

The ex isting record was 2:16 for such a trial and was held in France.

VATROXS OF THE GAME DISOVHTED WITH THEIR ACTIOS. Tbey Toeaed the Ball Around la an Almlea Manner and Then Itefuaed to I'lay-Tiie Crowd Swarmed on the Field-Tucker YYaa Badly Injured. Philadelphia, July 17. The patrons of the baseball game were troutcd to a disgraceful exhibition to-diiy, brought about by tho conduct of the Boston players. Umpire Stage was compelled to retire from the game yesterday on account of sickness, and Tucker, Mc Carthy and Duffy took advantage to protest at every decision made by Car scy, who took Stuge's place. When the game began to-day Daniel Campbell, the local umpire, appeared In Stage's place. The trouble began in the first Inning, when Umpire Camp bell declared Hamilton "not out" at sec onB. The Boston trio protested and from that time forward objected to al most every decision. The Phlladelphlas scored In the first Inning and Boston in the forth and seventh Innings. In the elxth Inning Duffy did something that aroused the anger of the crowd and they hooted and hissed at him from that time 'forward. In the eighth Inning the Phlladel phlas batted Staley all over the field. After .-eight runs had been scored the Bostons started in to delay the game in the hope that some gathering clouds end In rain and stop the game. The tossed the ball around in an aimless way, and allowed easily hit balls to roll by without attempting to field them. Finally the side went out.: Boston then refused to take its turn at bat, and Duffy kept the ball. Umpire Campbell gave them five minutes to begin play, and when Duffy refused to throw the ball he gave the game to Philadelphia. The Boston- players began to gather up their bats and the crowd swarmed Into the -field. Tucker made some sar castic rejoinder to some of the epithets hurled at him and one of the crowd shoved him and another man punched him In the face- and knocked him down. By this time the crowd had grown to a raging mob and serious in jury to the Boston player seemed immi nent. PoMcemen Itept the crowd back from the prostratevTucker. ' Duffy and McCarthy had a lively time of it-In another par of the field and only saved thmseves from injury by scrambling up Into the grand stand. Policemen succeeded at last In escort ing the Boston players to their coach and they were driven off, followed by a hooting mob for several squares.

New Tork, July 17. United States Commissioner Shields' office in the Fed eral buliding swarmed to-day with Chinamen. Most of them were those recently arrested, charged with having aided in smuggling in Chinese, princi pally through Canada. Others were the alleged smuggled Chinamen. The first case taken up was that of Lee Fee, accused with aiding In smug gling Quong Wah Into the United States in violation of the statutes reg ulating Chinese Immigration. George W. Burleston, deputy collector of cus toms at St. Albans, Vt., testified that on June 16 Quong Wah was admitted to the United States. Among the affidavits was one of Len Hon, stating that Quong Wah first arrived In the United States in April, 11892, landing at San Francisco, where he remained two months and then came to this city. In 1803 he left Lee How in charge of his business and went to China to get married, with the intention of remain ing there, and for that reason taking out no passports. Robert L. Farnhom, a reporter, testi fied that he took the part of a govern ment agent and held out to Lee Fee that he would try and get him a position as government interpreter which would enable him to smuggle in as many Chi namen as he liked. "What arrangement did Lee Fee tell you," asked Assistant District Attorney Mott, "he had made with Quong Wah for bringing him here?" "He said," was the reply, "that Quong Wah was to pay him $160. I do not know whether the money was paid." The reporter Said further that Lee Fee told him that Quong Wah was a laundryman and that most of the Chi namen brought here are greenhorns. The last he knew of Lee Fee was his going to Staten Island to work as a laundryman. He was told that the men making the affidavits upon whichQuong Wah was admitted were paid from $10 to $25. This closed the testimony for the gov ernment. Judge Hoover made, on be half of the accused Chinamen, a motion to dismiss the casa on the evidence for the prosecution. Decision was Te served. Lee Jack;. Who keeps a small store at No. 1 Doyer street, was arrested th Ismorning by United States Deputy Marshal Noon on a charge of having fraudulently represented Lee Lip, a Chinaman arriving here on May 6 last, to be amerchant, whereas, as alleged, he is a laborer. The accused was taken before United States, Commissioner Shields and held for examination. Fastest Cruiser In the World. Washington, July 17.
