Dynamite Hidden by the Striking Miners And so Arranged as to , Exploded by Wires. Be The Mining Situation In Many Dis tricts From the Alleghenie3 to the Rockies. By the Associated Press. Denver, May 28. Information has been received from Cripple Creek that even had the strikers been driven from the camp the men who took their places in the mines would be in immi nent peril. Every mine in the camp over which there has been trouble is "loaded." Large quantities of dyna mite have been stored in the shafts back of the tim bering by the strikers and hidden wires attached to these charges in such a manner that they could be exploded and every person in the mines instantly killed while the men who start the batterv remain out of sight. Murderous Huns. Scottdale, Pa., May 28. Three Hun-, garian strikers succeeded in getting through the lines of deputies at the Meyey Coke works at 1 o'clock last night and Geo. B.

As they ran Keffer raised himself from the ground and fired six shots. Blood along the road indicated that the shots took effect. The body of an unknown man, sup posed to be Deputy Wnolman, was found at Fayette Creek yesterday. Hie head and face were battered out of semblance to human features and the clothing was nearly stripped off his body. Sunshine In Kansas Mines. Pittsburg, Kan., May 28. About 100 miners went to work at Weir coal shaft No. 2 at Kirkwood this morning at the 87) cent rate and dollar settle- . . Tl U 17!av.;. UiOlib Uivn nil iuc ji'iv;iui"g of the Western Coal and Mining com pany held a meeting last night and de cided to go back to work for the same price, but as yet the company has taken no actiou on their proposition. The Brown, Brower and Barrett works will be started up again tomor row. This leaves the strike situation in this district in a very satisfactory con dition for with the exception of the Fleming mine every shaft is working a full force. Don't Want Protection. Pana, 111., May 28. The position in the coal mines became decidedly humor ous todav when 400 men refused to work, because the military were here protecting them. Governor Altgeld has ordered the militarv to leave for home except two companys ordered to Minonk. Arms In Demand. Parkersburg, W. Va., May 23.

McMichael, Big Bug; Tnos. McMahon, Greenwood, Wis. Governor Murphy and P. J. Cole, of the Phcenix National bank, accompa nied by C. E. Hakes, went to Goldfield yesterday morning. They go to exam ine the Bull Dog mine, on which, it is claimed, a body of ore has been uncov ered that makes the property valuable. This claim is reputed to be the very best in camp as it has well defined walls, enclosed in which the ore has increased in value as depth has been attained. The surface rock only ran a trifle above $4 ; now ore four feet has been encountered that runs so high as to attract the attention of such men as above mentioned who, no doubt, will become interested. Water has been tstruck in the mine of a sufficient quan tity to operate a mill. FOUL PLAY SUSPECTED. More About the Death of Rogers and His Partner. The Eepublican s correspondent at Harrieburg adds other testimony to the circumstances of the death of Wm. .Rogers and his companion, whose name was not McDonald, as was previously reported : Harbisboro, Ariz., May 25, 1894. Editor Republican : Since my last letter to you I have learned the names of the men that were found dead on the desert. One was Kogers and one was Hoskins, not McDonald. Four men left Congress together. After travel ing about twenty miles they separated and Hoskins and Rogers were left. The other two went to Copper Uainp, from there to Culieu's wells and from there to Harrisburg mine, stating that their partners were left on the desert to die. Ii they had made it known men would have gone in every directiOD until they had been found. Rogers" and his partner went to the Copper Camp and got water and went on. McDonald and his partner went to work et the Harqua Hala mines, never say ing anything about their partners. When Mound, the dead men were lying n their . backs with their hats over their faces. No man I dies in that shape with thirst. Foul play is i suspected and the case ought to be investi gated, it was done in Maricopa county, out the bodies were brought over to Yuma and buried.

Messrs. Andrew Barry, Pierrepoint Minor, Frank Meador and James Een nie are working on a solution of the evils which find expression in such out breaks as the Coxey movement. The 'cabal' has not been attained yet but the gentlemen are hopeful of success.

SPRUCING UP SAINTS. Delicate Repairs for Tucson's Devil and Other Immortals. As is well known the once choice fres coes in Tucson's famous old church of San Xavier, are now in a sad state from neglect and time's destructive ravages. Many an art lover has regretted that such grand paintings could not be re stored. The work ought not to be con sidered impracticable. Any artist of a practical turn should be able to figure the expense involved and could base his figures upon the estimates made for an old church in Belgium which de cided to repair its properties, and em ployed an artist to touch up one of the huge paintings. Upon presenting his bill the committee in charge refused payment unless the details were speci fied, thereupon he presented the items as follows : To correct th Ten Commandments $ 5 12 Embellishing Pontius Pilate and putting new ribbons on his bonnet 3 00 Putting new tail on the rooster ot St. Peter, at d mending his comb 2 20 Repluming and gilding left wing of the guardian angel 5 18 Warning the servant of the High Priest, and putting carmine on his cheeks. . . 5 02 Renewing heaven, adjusting the stars, and cleaning up the moon 7 14 Touching up purgatory, and restoring lost souls 3 08 Brightening up the flames of hell, put ting a new tail on the devil mending his left hoof, and doing several odd jobs lor the damned 7 14 Reoordering the robes of Herod, and ad justing his wig ... 4 00 Taking the spots off the sun of Tobias. . 1 30 Cleaning Balaam's ass, and putting one shoe on him 1 70 Putting earrings in Sarah's ears 171 Putting a new toue in David's slinc, en larging the heid f Goliah, and ex lending Saul's legs 6 13 Decoratig Noah's ark, and putting a head on Shem 3 31 Mending the shirt of the prodigal son, and cleaning his ears 2 39 Total f 38 42 Subscribe for The Republican.
