'."' A MINE HORROR. Terrible Disaster la the Ore Clona of UloUjic Re- "ITie Marmnpld Mine Cares In Tpon the Workmen and Twetitr-eleht I.lwsare I,ot Tim Mine Flooded nd All lincape Cut Off. IsiiniMlNU, Mich., Sept. 80. A heavy fall of fjround occurred at the Mans iiold mine, near Crystal Fall yesterday snornluff, entombing elxty men, with 4ut little or no chance of escape. The water at thla mine ralaea fast, the ore lieing soft and the chances of rescuing Any of the unfortunates allre are rery root The situation Is awful, and the tocene around the larg-e cave-In is heart rending. A rescuing party la doing vervtliinir possible to reach the poor fellows, with little hope of reaching them. A diboutch from Crystal Falla state that the MansBeld mine is seven miles esast of that village on the Menominee ran ire. The main shaft of the mine ex tends under the Michlgamme river, and when the cave-in occurred it turned the st ream into the mine, flooding it sJmost instantly. There were sixty men working In the mine when the dis aster occurred, and oi this numoer ni- teen made their escape. It is not thmiirht noHsible that any of the re maining fortv-flve men can be resoued aiive. Ehcahaba. Sept. 80. The latest eo- xunts from the mine aay that forty live miuers were at work in the mine. Of this number twenty-eight are known 1, ri.'Ld. The cave-in is about 150 fmt In diameter and tho mine is en tirely filled with water to the river level and it is impossible for any one tn be alive. A message from Iron Mountain says: Tho mine caved in and the water rushed in. flooding the mine. Fifty men were working at the time and only three were saved. They were working In a shaft and the force of the water and air brought them to the top. Most ) the ilrov. ned men are Italians ami TVeU'h. all married, as tho slnglo men tore all laid off early in the Boason. The mine was being worked by Corri ran. Ives & Co., of Cleveland. Iros Mountam. Mich., Sept 80. The latent Information from the scene of the mine disaster states that the ac cident occurred during the night and when the water of the Michlgamme river came rushing Into the mine the men at work were entrapped like a lot ofraU It is not possible that any es caped. Most of the victims are CornUh men and nine-tenths of thorn are men with large families. This fact lends additional horror to what is one of the worst disasters which has ever befallen (he mining industry in the upper pe ninsula. The number of the vlotlms is now placed at thirty-seven. Mansfield is an isolated station on the Chicago A Sorth western road. The greatest ex citement prevails and it la almost im possible to pet connected details of the .lUaster. The wives aud ohlldron of the burled miners are rending the air with their ories and walling. J. M. Longyear, of Marquette, Is the principal owner of the Mansfield Iron mine. The mine was the only active one in the Crystal Falls district on ac count of its being a producer of high Trade Bessemer ore. It had a produc ing capacity of about 60,000 tons per ainnum aud gave employment to about 100 men. The Mansfield mine has always been considered a dangerous oue to work in aud a disaster has often len predicted. M.vmjrKTTK, Mich., Sept. 80. Tho mine inspector of Iron county will con duct a moht rigid Investigation to as certain the cause .of the disaster at the Manxtleld mine. The vein of ore was only hixtivn feet wide aud the uuture of the ground was such that experts m.t it was easy to afford an easy sup- iKii t to tin hanging wall of the mine. It will be Impossible to ever recover the iHiilles of the men, who died like rut In a Iran. The Mansfield mine vii rlmided In the lower level by water last spring, and while in this condition the ore pillars In the upper levels were removed, it Is alleged by order of the superintendent. This no doubt has tened the collapse and prevented many of the unfortunate miners from escap ing. Already talk of suits for damages against the operators by relatives of the dead men Is being heard. The money Ion will be fOOO.OOO. Twe Men named to Death, Kew Ohi.xanh, Sept 80.

Emploret of the Big Fonr Railroad Aeeep lMal.lnt Tno-Alla' Pronoeltlon. w ' Cincinnati, 0 Sept 98. A messen ger boy late lost night walked np to the summer cottage of President In- galls, of tho Big Four railroad, in the - . . . ... . i I.,. - mountalns oi Virginia, wnn a utns yellow envelope that concealed most welcome Intelligence. It contained a message bearing this brief, yet ultra ilgnificant sentence: "1 he men nave roted to accept the proposition and they will not strike." , This succinctly gives tne culmination ot the trouble befween the trainmen and officers of the Big Four. Yesterday afternoon the work of canvassing the rote was concluded and while the re mit has not yet been officially an nounced, a slip of paper found in the room in which the vote was countea ihows that the firemen and brakemen ixpressed a disposition to combat the order reducing salaries even u a point ot striking. But 10 per cent favored the acceptance of the exeoutlve circu lar. Among the conductors and engineers the result was vastly different They voted by a small majority against itrlklng. The passenger mon, conduc tors and engineers alike, are less ag grieved than the freight employee. This Is due to the disparity of freight tnd passenger traffic Incident to the world's fair the passenger business has been very large and the depression In the interests of the country have cur tailed the freight traffic to a marked degree. On this account the passenger men have been enjoying good pay while the freight men have experienced the greatest difficulty to make good money, as all are paid on the mileage basis. The chiefs have been notified sf the action ot the men and they will now go to Denver and adjust the dif ferences existing on the Denver k Rio Orande system. The ultimatum which President In galls made the last time that he met the Brotherhood chiefs is what the men now accept It can by no moans be construed into concession. He imply pledges on the 1st of January to take up tho present wage scale and if he finds that It needs equalizing he will give it attention and make such concessions to the men as the interests of the country at that time may justify.

Passonger train No. S, consisting oi three sleepers, passonger and smoking coaches, mail and baggage and express car and engine and tender, went into an open awltch. The train waa run ning forty-five miles an hour when the accident, occurred. Investigation by the railroad offlolals after the accident showed that the awltch, which had been properly set and locked, had been opened. The lock had been burnt off with a large pine knot and thrown away. Three negro tramps who were riding on the blind baggage between the tender and the baggage car were killed. Another negro tramp waa probably fatally Injured. The engi neer and fireman were dangerously hurt and two postal clerks also. The express messenger and baggageman ter were slightly wounded. The escape of the passengers irom Injury seems almost miraculous. The train left Mississippi City ten minutes late and the engineer was running to make up lost time. When the engine struck the awltch frog it jumped ao that the flanges rode on top of the rail thirty or forty yards, then left the track to the right and plunged through an empty box car on the aiding. En gineer Coffin and Fireman Morgan gal lantly stuck to their posts and at tempted to apply the air brakes. The shock uncounted the tender, which kept on the main track, riding on its wheel flanges till a hundred yards be yond where the engine waa wrecked, and as It left the rails, capsized com pletely. The baggage and express car followed the engine and collapsed alongside of It The mall car loft the traok to the left and was shattered Into splinters. The smoker and passenger soaches followed the wrecked engine and baggage car and the first-class ooaches were piled on top of the smoker. BOLD RQBBERV.
