If that be what Mr.} IhvW wants, ho is on the right road' for it. Mr. Cleveland, if in earnest; alMiittlie <f?*struetion of American in-! dibtrics, will welcome the cordial endorsement and hearty support of this j avowed and very able champion of free trade and a full swing for British ira-j porters. Uut the President must not be milled. Mr. George cannot bring to the President's support on this platform the wiiolt? body of American wage-earners, a majority of whom desire to continue to l?e wajre-earners. Still, Mr. George bei-omes an interesting incident of the I Cleveland free trade campaign. I Tub<'hamber of Commerce, to which | I Ir'Ioiijjs the honor of originating the I great movement in behalf of State def vviopinciit, abates nothing of ita interest ' since the movement has been well started. It appropriates to the Itoard of Immigration and Development the $1001 sultfcribed by its president in the con-1 vention, and it gracefully extends to the I Jioartl an invitation to como in and share I I hi-comfortable new quarters which the I CliamluT lias just provided /or itself in the Keilly building. This is in effect another and a bandsome contribution to the work, for the Board will be the I guest of the Chamber, occupying a portion of the quarters without cost. This handsome courtesy will be appreciated by the Hoard and the great constituency which it, represents.

Up to tho hour of sending this out forty bodies have been taken out and at least fifteen more are expected to di liavo met a similar fate. The superin- ^ tendent of tho mine was taken out badly injured, but will survive. In the torribio excitement and confusion it is impossible to give a list of the names, even m an estimate of tho full extent of tho dis- Vi aster, but it is now thought that over J) fifty men were killed. of Later news from llicli Hill is to the or effect that the mine is situated six miles j.'j distant from the town. There were tw,u explosions, and it is said that thu Iobh oi life will reach eighty men. liicli Hill is SP located in Bates county, just 100 miles north of Kansas City, on the Missouri Ti Pacific road.

The most horrible mine disaster that A has ever occurred in the West happened at noon to-day in Keith & Perry's No. G mine, and, as * a result, a Urge 61' I tmmlw.r nf iiurn fire ontnuihcd and st< thousands of dollars worth of property ei; destroyed. Just ut the dinner hour, gj when the men were ascending eight nt a time on the Cairo, a terrible ?:is explo-* mi siou occurred tilling every entry with a sa flame of lire whieli shot out of the til shaft, a distance of 1,000 feet. It cannot i be ascertained to-night just how many men ure yet in the mine, but at 11 o'clock w' one man had been taken out dead. The as work of removing the tlebris and clean- wi ingthe shaft lias been going on all tho afternoon but will be several hours before lunch can be done' toward v>entering the mine proper. A Journal lie reporter called ut the residence-of the th superintendent at 11 o'clock and found f,_ him propped un in a chair with his face . and fiamls banduge<r and scarcely^ible, to 10 talk, 1>ut he made the following state- hit mcnt: "At just seven minutes ui after noon I was telegraphed that to au. explosion hud occurred at No. in (5, which, is about four miles bi northwest of town. I went out ti? as soon as possible and found the south cage, on "which the men always .ascend- lai ed. stuck in the shaft about on half way from the bottom with he eight men on it. I went fet< down n tub to them with ropes and m found them all badly burned mid in a all frenzy, in fuet they were crazy. Somo th were "dead. The wail that went up from Ci those men were hoartrending and I shall Ki never forget it. The knowledge that ca at the top were their wives ex- a i tending their arms ready to clasp M and shield them from further danger St was maddening enough to destroy all tii reason. nfi It is probablo that aU who were in the nr mine at tho time of tire iirst explosion w ftro dead.

One of e small drawers in the safe was lock, but as the dealer said it was locked !ienrho got it some two years ago, and the person who sold it told him it is empty and he had lost the key, he ve.it no more attention and the safe is sold as .it stood.

Her features are calm and peaceful, id there is little in the smiling, uplrned face to indicate that the young irl found life's burden too heavy for her > bear, that she was weary of life, and msequentlj;. had deliberately planned ) make away with herself. She was Miss Esther Strauss, who kept ouse for her father at the place men* oned. The family consisted of the faicr, three daughters, Minnie, aged 17; lather, aged 21: Bella, aged 21], and two )ns.

Not a ray of sunshine found its way through the heavy clouds which encircled Chief Justice Waite's early, home, Whenever an attempt was made to throw out black and crape the winds and rains played sad havoc with tjje emblem* of mourning. The interior of the public buildings and many of thedoors were decorated and draped, and the stars and stripes floated tottered and torn sorrowfully at half mast in the blinding storm But when the sun came out clear ami warm and bright with the arrival of the funeral car from the East this morning the whole scene changed. Summit street was transfigured in an hour. It wns t lino of black from end to end.

The rftom was plainly drape in block and a fine portrait of tho dea Chief Justice which hangs on the wall also bore appropriate mourning emblems. Shortly afterward# the doors were opened to admit the enormous throng of friends and fcitizens which ~ packed the adjacent street. Tho cadets were on duty to maintain proper order and to keep the lino moving as rapidly as circumstances Would permit. ^ So dense was the throng of people eager to take a last look at the revered dead that it was impossible at times for lt the street cars to force a passage. The doors were closed at 2:45 and many thousands were disap]>ointed in obtaining a view of the remains. The casket was inclosed, and removed to the chancel of the church adjoining.

Captain Paul | Boynton, the noted swimmer, had an ex; perience in Lake Michigan Tuesday that ' lie thinks lio will not forget for some i time. The Captain has grown heavy ' during tho winter and to reduce his flesh has recently been taking little pulls out into the lake in his rubber suit. . Tuesday morning at 7 o'clock he left i runerion avenue lor a swiin 10 oouiu Chicago and return, and met with the i most thrilling adventure of his life in which he battled for hours with a great - ice flow, was carried ninny miles out < into the lake stripped of his navigating instruments, and lost for fifteen hours in I the cold, bleak waste of drifting ice and f hanging clouds and struggling ducks. , From H o'clock in the morning until midnight ho wus without food or drink, and ;the chill of the icy waters hacl driven him to the desperate resort of hard work all that time to keep up a 1 vigorous circulation so that ho would 1 not chill and perish in the lake. "When I entered the water at 7 , o'clock," the captain said, "tlioro was a fresh west wind. I swam about two ' miles, intending to clear tho crib for a | trip to .South Chicago. Just about the ' limit of my run east I began to meet ice. * 1 passed through it for a time, and then ' ran across some floes onto which I climb* ' ed.

I must have fought them until 10 o'clock before I missed my compass. When I looked to get my bearings I noticed the citv had faded from view. I found' the band which bound the compass to my body had been severed by a trieco of ice. Tho water was cold and 1 had been in it so long I began to get drowsy. Chills ran through my veins in quick succession and 1 saw I must either pull out for somewhere or perish. i i_. i'i -i ?...i ...... 4i.? ..f : 1 iUUKUU UUUIU UIIU BU?

For live 1 hours I worked as I never had before. \ -The water was heavy and lifeless, I had to fight for every inch I made. Chicago 1 wiw still nowhere to be seen and I bad " no notion of the time of day. Then I * changed my course about half way round and pulled hard for a while. The iee ' gathered about me again and when night 1 came I was Htill lighting for uiy life. Some times I could dodue the drift; at others I climbed upon the cakes and crossed 1 them. When the moon rose I got a ' flush or view of it and then saw ray mis1 takcK I had crossed the Held in the 1 morning when I entered what I thought was a pocket, and all the long pull of the day with the ioe at my feet liud driven me toward Michigan. The turn I had taken had sent mo south. 1 set about and pushed from the moon. At 10 o'clock I noticed a faint light in tho sky and an hour later perceived it was from the furnaces at South Chicago. Then I got my bearings and sighted tue lights at the cribs. I pulled up there at midnight and blow my bugle. I must have called a half dozen times before an answer camej then Capt.

Matters Now Growing Very Se rious in Chicago. SWITCHMEN'S SYMPATHIZER Make an Attack which In Fruitful o lte*ults-~A Superintendent Beaten?Arrestof u Leader and an Indignant Slob. Chicago, March 29.?The first encoun tor between the sympathizers of th Btriking switchmen and men who hav< uispiuceu mem iook piace ai *:?*/ wu afternoon, when a freight engine anil it crew attempted to transfer some freigh ears to the Northwestern tracks. A crowd of switchmen of other roads wen about the place and began to jeer at tin now men on the "Q" engine. Whei the train reached Kensie street one Western avenue, it ran off a switch thai had been turned and a number of can were ditched. , The mob then set upon the crew oi the engine and train and tho engineei and fireman took to their heels, getting numerous cuffs as they escaped. The new switchmen followed suit, and were pursued and roughly used by the crowd, which was made up of the toughest kind of citizens. The Pinkerton men, ol whom there were six or eight on the train, attempted to protect the trainmen, but the mob set upon them in a twinkling. They were powerless, and after making a few efforts to defend themselves, took to flight to escape the drul>bing they were receiving at the hands of the furious mob. Several of tho Pinkerton men were hurt and one of them is thought to havo sustained serious injury. On the same train was Division Superintendent John llesler, of the Burlington. When the trouble commenced he hurried to the front and some one in the crowd recognized him. Tho disclosure of his identity was tho signal fob tiie mod to fall on liim and beat him. The attack came from all sides, and it was only after having been badly used up that Ire escaped and ran to a switch house, where he locked himself in and escaped further punishment. Tho riot created great ex citement and,the Pinkerton men and officers flocked to the scene. The mob quickly dispersed,- however, and only one man %vas arrested. His name is William Quirk, and he is looked up at the West Madison Street Police Station. Police were ordered to the scene of the disturbance from nearly all the stations. Quirk, who was arrested, was a Chicago, St. Paul & Milwaukee switchman. Ilis arrest precipitated a strike of 171 switchmen, twenty-eight engineers and'twenty-eight iirainen on the Chicago, St. Paul ? Milwaukee road. When it was known that Quirk had been arrested a crowd followed him to the West Madison street station and endeavored to get him released. 2s uinerons offers of ban were made. Eight thousand dollars surety for his appearance was offered, but ho was locked up. When the crowd realized that their comrade had to remain in the police station the Milwaukee & St. Paul men, in their rage, aecided to strike, and immediately deserted their engines. The whole yartMorce of switchmen, engineers and firemen, 227 in all, quit work, leaving twenty-eight engines standing on thu tracks. It is rumored that' the brakemen of the same road will go out tonight. The strikers say the Milwaukee & St. Paul road has been PARTICULARLY FRIENDLY to the Burlington, and they have been rondv nnd \v511inn> tn niiif fnr unmrttimn Division Superintendent Bcaler, who took refuge from the mob in the switchhouse, hail both his eyes blocked and was very badly bruised up. The firemen and engineer of the train Which was attacked were also badly pounded. A meeting of 500 engineers, firemen and HVfitchmcn was hold at Fourteenth and Jefferson streets this afternoon. There were representatives from all the roads present, and it was resolved that a general boycott be declared against the Burlington freight on all the roads. The sentiment expressed was that the Burlington road had gone too for. There was no reason why the engineers' demands should not bo complied with. They were reasonable and the time had come to enforce them. The strike of the St. Paul men oamo to an end as quickly as it had begun. At 8:30 p. m., two officials of the St. Taul Company succeeded in having Quirk released on bail, lie went immediately to where the strikers wero in session, and was warmly greeted with enthusiasm. His presence nut the men in a good humor, and it was speedily resolved that a resumption of work was the proper course to pursue. By 0 p. m. the men were ngain at their posts and everything on the St. Paul was running along smoothly. Iteirulta for tho llnrlington.

"My opinion is," said oneoftheleudcra of the party, "both strikes are lost, the Brotherhood ^ ol Locomotive Engineer* has made a dismal failure of the light on the Burlington route, and so have tho Knights on the Heading. It is plainly evident that the Philadelphia <fe Heading officials do not propose to recognise the strikers at all. and it is equally evident that the Burlington road can be operated without the Brotherhood. As for the Knights of Labor, who are leaving the East and going West, they are compelled to do so in their selMe/ense. lJriven out of their positions by the Brotherhood, they find it impossible to get work on any Eastern line. CHIEF AUTHPK DENIES That He Will ll?tlre From tho Order, and That the Striker* Hare Cot Away. Chicago, March 20.?Tho allegations that a radical clefhent in the Brotherhood was chafing under the conservative measures adopted by their chief, and the statement that the contemplated simul taneous retirement irora tno strife with Burlington and from his office as the head of the organization was the all ab sorbing tonic lor discussion this morning at the headquarters of tho striking engineers. Chief Arthur talked upon the subject He said: "The statement that the Bur lington strikers have cut away from tlieii leaders and their grievance committee! is a base falsehood. The grievance com mitteesyesterday unanimously endorsee the action of the Grand Chief all th< way through. If it is true that a com mittee has been appointed by the null cals. and that they have visited even road running into Chicago, as reported and obtained pledges from all the switch men and switch engineers that unde _ 9 no circumseances M ill they move a Bu lingtun car, it has been unknown to in I don't believe the members of tl Brotherhood will do anything control to tha laws of the organization or not ei " domed by me.

STRIKES 1)0 NO OOOD. IIow will this be done, not by sitting down until the very life blood of labor is drawn to the last drop. We must have legislation which will compel in. dividual^ and corporations to transact business on a bapiB of real property, dollars and cents, Instead of what the world calls paper credit or fictitious values. How can this be done? Not by strikes; i not by wasting our energies on the line t of abuse of each other. It cannot bo done by men who have no higher con, ception of knighthood and cTtixemhip . than to expose themselves and families i to the pangs of hunger in suicidal . strikes. i It is argued that strikes do good. So does a fire. Strikes do no good. Go to the coal fieldsof Pennsylvania andcount the victims; go through the Lehigh region and count the sufferers; go in the homes of the brave, heroic men who waged the unequal battle, and ask of the wives and children you will find there if strikes do good, and note the answer. 1 Let the ones who have felt the pangs of hunger testify.

' The General Master Workman has re" ceived his share of censure for not encouraging certain strikes. He never did encourage a strike, and never will do so, nor will he ever vote to order a striko : until every known remedy short of a surrender of the manhood of the men 1 engaged has been tried.
