THIRTEEN MEN ARE ENTOMBED A Section of the Rock and Coal Falls Suddenly at the Firing of a Shot. The Men Are Thought to Be In One Gangway A Rescuing Party Hard at Work Heartrending Scenes at he Mouth of the Shaft. Wilkbb-Babbb, Feb. 13. r N EXTENSIVE cave-in occurred M lit the Gaylord mine of the U Kingston Coal company at Ply LTu Bmm tins morning A large uiiuibeTof miner and laborers were at work under a section of the roof which was for some time pst nas b-en con sidered very weak. After a shot had been tired and without any warning whatever the roof, consisting of rook ami coal, fell into the mino with a heavy crash. As far as can be estimated the cave in carried about thirty acres of land. It is not known as ye whether any of the men were killed outright by the falling debris, but it is known that thirteen of them are bemtnel In in one of the gangways. RESCUING PARTIES AT WORK. The first rescue party went into the mine at 0 o'clock and others have been working heroic-ally during the entire day. A number of mine foremen and their a3istant9, led by John 13. Davis, superintendent of the Gaylord work ings, who have been in the mine all the afternoon, came out at f o'clock and report that all, the outlets in the mine are closed, also the rock tunnel and all the entrances. The cavein ia now rported to hav taken place in what is known as the 5-foot vein, 7 foot vein and Bennett veins. The cave-iu covers an area of about a mil, it hav ing extended since noon tod y, and af fects the central portion of the town of Plymouth. A few cracks can be seen on th snr faee, but this has not become aif-eted as yet. The rescuing party was obliged to retraat on account of the further caving in of tho mine. The crashing of the immense rock as they came down, tha rolling and the rurab liug of the many falls and tho rush and roar of the wind by the concussion forced th men to retreat to the sur face. Men of all classes who are fa miliar with mine working are at the scene of the disaster aud their willing hearts and strong arms are ready to go into the mine whetiever the word ia given to aid in rescuing the entombed tiinberinm if snch in poisihle. AN INTIMATION OF DANGER. The thirteen timber men who went into the mine aud now are imprisoned there, wera warned yesterday that there was danger ahead, but they were of the opinion that the danger was not sufficient for them to stay out. They said, however, to the hoisting engineer as they went nownlthe pit, "should anything occur yon will fiud us in the Big Brauch in the Bennett vein." This, however, is also closed, and there is no way to reach them. Tho section of the mine in which the men are imprisoned is a portion of the Baltimore vein, which at this point is very thick, and they were engaged in placing large timbers M as to prop and support the roof. The names of the unfortunate men who are imprisoned are as follows: Thomas Ptcton, mine foreman; Thomas Jones, James Ords, Daniel Morgan, Thomas Leyshon, Richard Davis, Thomas Cole, Peter F, McLaughlin, Michael Walsh, Johu, Morris, John Arne, James Kingdoo, Thomas Cole. All the men were married except Thomas Leyshon, who is a single man, aud Daniel Morgan, who is a widower. SCENES ABOUT THE SHAFT. The scene a out the iniue late to night is heartrending and from the present outlook there will be at least eleven widow and plenty of orphans to suffer the loss of their only support. The officials are hard at work to devise some plan or means f rescue, an 1 in order to get at the men they will have to penetrate through 400 feet of solid coal and rock. It is believed by the superintendent and others that the imprisoned men are on the "big plan-" in the Bennett vein, which ia about 700 feet from the foot nf the shaft. It will be several days aud the most heroic work must be done before the men can be reuched and there fate as certained. The work of digging their way through the coal from the foot of the shaft to reach the entombed men be gan this evening It is not known bow long it will take, and it is possible that they will never be reached or found. jnd Muller were, patients of Dr. Kreinien aid they died vi ry suddenly.

Von Bulow was born Jan. 8, 1330, at Dresden: he studied under R chard Wagner and Liszt and was, in 1850, musical chi'f of the theaters of Saint Gall and Zurich. In 1851 Von Hnrlow settled in Berlin aud was named, in 1858, Pianist of the Prince Royal. In 1864, at the invitation of Wagner, Von Bulow wnt to Munich where he became, in 107, director of tue New Royal School for music and and master of the etiapsl of the court. Von Bulow visited the United States for the fir't time in 1875 and returned again in 1380 aud 1301, playing suceess ml engagements, ull marked by his unique and ecoentric personality. He married Cosima Liszt, a natural laughter of the great' musician Liszt. They separated and Mrs. Von Bulow married Wagner. The courtship of Wagner began before Mrs. Vou Bulow obtained a divorce, and whon the couple eloped the husband did not pur sue them, vowing vengeance. On th contrary, he helped to arrange nutters for a divorce, and even carried his complacency so far as to attend Cos- iinu'x marriage to Wagner. It was a regular romance and Mrs Wagner and Von Bulow were ever afterward great friends. Von Bulow had to be watched on ac count of his eccentricities. Ho said anything that came to his mind, and one of his tours in this conn ry.had to he shortened on account of his mental peculiarities. The strain of pliiying ml v was too much. He conl 1 not speak English wall and was asmail, bald-headed man with a light mustache and keen eyes. He seemed to be all nervous energy.

It lasted bix hours and the fighting was most desperate. The insurgents lost !00 men. The govern ment loss is unknown. Admiral Saldauha da Gama, the rebel commander, who was wounded iu the neck and arm by Mannlicher bullets during the battle of Armscao on Friday last, is in a critical condi tion. It was at first supposed that the admiral's wounds were insignificant. A FOOTHOLD OAINED. Nictheroy is the chief stategic point of Rio's defense against tho rebels toward the sea, aud the efforts of the insurgent sea forces have been princi pally directed at it. It has for some time been foretold that a supretu ef fort would be mado to take Rio by a combined movemeut of the rebel land and sea forces. The reported engagement at Rio, iu connection with the reported advance of insurgent forces on Santas, may be the fulfilling of this design. If the reported battle at Nictheroy be true, the rebels have evidently ad vanced a step '.'since the engagement Friday at Armacao Ponta de Areia, in the vicinity of Nictheroy. to investigate tho legality of the Hon duras Lottery company in its relations with the postal service, the postmaster general this afternoon issued what are known as "fraud'' orders against Paul Conrad, president of the National Hon duras Lottery company; the Graham piintery, and L.
