' Secretary 'lariom Drops Dead a Baa aneW Tbo sudden death of Secretary Win lorn, of the Treasury, while at the din ker of the Board of Trade and Trans-, bortatlon, at Now York, caused the: Immediate adjournment of that body a' few minute after 10 o'clock. The Sec-' fetftry w the first speaker of the even-' log. The dinner, which began at 6 a'elock, was completed shortly after '9 p. m., and the Secretary arose to speakj . lie entertained the diners with a most' elaborate oration and sat down amidst the lond applause and cheers of his au-! d I tors. Judgct Arnoux was in the midst of a speech Introducing cx-Secretary Iay- ii whan snma nntk frifill 'T.nlr (LT. KV. retary Windom!". The speech was broken short and every eye was turned In' the direction of that gentleman. He had sunk in his chair and was falling to the floor. His face was ghastly, nd a cry of horror arose among the late festive revelers. Drs. S. A. Robinson,' "Durant, Whitney, Fisher, and Bishop were soon at his chair. Dr. Eobinson bent down, and making a close examin ation of the prostrate form, discovered that the heart was still beating. By his orders the dying Secretary was carried Into the disu room adjoining the banquet ball and there placed on a table. ' Mes sengers were hastily dispatched for elec tric batteries and four were applied to , body, which was rapidly growing cold. This was exactly at 10:05 p.' mi For six ' minutes the electric shocks were applied incessantly, but without success. At 10:11 p. m. Judge Arnoux came out of the dish room and said: "He is dead!" The words went to the heart of every man who heard them. The brilliant - orator of a few minutes before, aglow with enthusiasm, predicting his futuro policy in the Treasury was only a mass :. of clay, i , - The Secretary had succumbed to an attack of the heart. He had been for a long time a sufferer from heart disease and only the other day was visited by a shock which, however, passed away without causing him much inconvenience. When it was officially announced that the Secretary was dead, Secretary Tracy at once went to the nearest telegraph office and sent a message to President ' Harrison, informing him of the sad event and requesting him to communicate with - Mrs. Wlndnm and have her start on the 11:10 p. m. train for New York. - 'William Windom, Secretary o 1 the Treasury for a sec ond time, waa born in Ohio in 117. He waa admitted to the bar and became Pros ecuting Attorney in liia native State, and in 1M3 removed to Minnesota, where he waa elected to the Thirty-sixth and the four subsequent Con gresses, taking an im portant part in the management ot In dian affaire. In 1670 be was appointed Senator to nil an un expired term, and waa afterward elect ' ed for two terms. He waa a candidate for the Presidential nomination ai the convention of 1680, and r appointed Secretary of the Treasury V President Garfield's Cabinet. He resigned when Vice-President Arthur auo seeded to the Presidency and engaged in rail road and other financial enterprises, maUng nil borne principally in New York until he waa re called by President Harrison to his former post. LA.BGE LOSS OF LIFE. Over Fifty Feraona Killed In a Mine Ex plosion. A terrible njine explosion occurred at the Mammoth works of the H. C. Frick Coke Company at Mammoth, Pa. Th mines are on the Scwlckley branch of the Southwest Branch Railroad, and are about half way between Latrobe and Mt. Pleasant. There seems to be some thing the matter with the wires of both the telephone and telegraph companies, as even the Frick employes are almost t entirely without definite Information. At the time of the accident there were be tween fifty and eighty men at work In the shaft, which is not a very deep one. There was a sudden explosion of gaj at the point where th.e men were at work, and from present indications it looks as though most of them were killed. Word has been received at Mt. Pleas ant, that eighteen bodies had been taken from the mine. The machinery which runs the fan wasnotdamaged,and plenty of fresh air has been forced into the mine to sustain the living, and to allpw rescu ing parties to enter In safety and bring out the bodies. The mine was badly wrecked in places, and it is not possible to set an accurate idea of the number of living or Injured who may be buried or Imprisoned. !. There is no fire hi the mine resulting 'from the explosion so there will be definite news hi a short time. It H said that most of the .killed are either English-speaking or .jSerman;. miners. T&e shaft is about 100 fleet deep, and has a number of galleries. Superintendent Keighley, who - was the inspector in charge at the Dunbar -mine after its ac cident, has charge of these works. , He has organized relief parties and is busily engaged in trying to penetrato the en tries '.; . - - - . A later dispatch says that one hurt' dred and ton men were killed in the ex- plosion. ' Sixty bodies have, been taken out so far. The mine is on fire, and it is flared- the bddlesof the others will be ..cremated. - f WEIGHT or WOE, " Secretary Vfiudom's Remains at Wash. v Washington special:-The remains of the late Secretary Windom arrived her ' and rere met at the depot by the Presi- r Went and members of the sCabiaet -and ' officers of tha- Treasury ! Department. . Following the casket were the President and Vice-President arm In arm, Sccffeta- rics Blaine and Proctor, and behind them other Cabinet officials. Then fol lowed a long lUe of Treasury officials. The line of carriages reached from the . depot far into the capltol grounds. Af ter tne remains were placed in tne ncarse, the procession moved to the late resi . dence of the Secretary on Massachusetts avenue, where the remains were removed from the bearse and placed In a position In the parlor. The casket was then opened, and the members of the Cabinet V and others were permitted 'to view his , remaina. after which thet withdrew, 1 leaving the dead Secretary with his fam- lly, who had remained in retirement un- th til the others had taken their departure.! The Secretary ot State Issued a for-, tnul a announcing the death and the! President'! order directing the closing and drapery of the departments. . i The President directs that all depart-! ments and executive branches or thej Government and officers subordinate! thereto shall manifest doe respect to the! memory of this eminent citizen In a manner conservant with the dignity of the office which be has honored by bU devotion to public duty. Gossip is already busy with probabilH tics as to Mr. Windom't successor, and! the general belief is that Congressman Mckinley, whose term In the liouse ex-j plres shortly, and whose fitness by roa- son of his prominent connection with) financial legislation is conceded, will be selected. f DOffS la INCLINE. A. Kansas City Cablo Car, Containing" rune) Persons, vasnea to rieeea. Kansas City special: A runaway ca ble train ran down the Union Depot in cline and it was only by the merest; chance that a number of lives were not lost The Incline is 1,000 feet long, and de scends at an angle of thirty degrees from' Summit street to an elevated station: east of the Union Depot. At Summit street the grip broke, the brakes failed to work, and the train, unrestrained,: shot down the incline at lightning speed. The passenger car contained nine persons, among them L. J. Brlcker, employed In the Burlington! ticket office, and C. E. Davidson, of Neosho, Kan. The ladies in the car rushed for the door to escape, but Mr: Bricker and Mr. Davidson restrained them and saved their lives. The train kept to the rails until it reached the curve at the bottom of the incline, when' the grip-car lumped the track and turned over on its lidc.i The passenger coach crashed Into: it 'and reduced it to splinters. Grlpman i Bosley was seri ously injured, but will recover. None of the passengers - were hurt excepting C. E. Davidson. He waa cut with glass and badly bruised. Keg-roes Sbot Down Like So Many Dogs. A dastardly crime occurred at Carbon Hill, n Walker County, Ala., the other night. A mob of white men, supposed to be ex-strikers, surrounded a negro cabin, occupied by nine colored men,' and, without warning, burst open the doors and opened fire on the occupants. The mob used shotguns, Winchester rifles, and pistols. The colored men were taken perfectly unawares and did not have time to defend themselves be fore they were shot down like so many dogs. A perfect fusillade of leaden balls poured into the little cabin, and the occupants fell right and left, bleed ing and groaning, after about sixty shots had been fired. Their murderous work fully accomplished, the band of desperadoes fled, and, so far as is known, their identy had not yet been estab lished, nor has any of them been ar rested. , A number of colored men 'were put to work at the mines in place of the strikers, and since then ill-feeling has existed between the factions. - Served Them itight. Two young men, two Indiscreet school girls, two indignant mothers and two horsewhips are the dramatis porsonae in a little drama, one act of which was en acted at Kansas City, Mo. The boys are George Goodman, - an employe in the freight office of the Mis souri, Kansas and Texas railroad, and Ed. Hunt, a special delivery boy employed at the postoffice, sta tion A. They had been pay ing devoted attention to two girls, each about 15 years old,; who live in the southwest part of the city. Both are daughters of respectable' parents, The other morning their respective mothers awoke to find their daughters missing. When they returned later, they were questioned and confessed that they had spent the night in company with Goodman and Hunt The mothers procured horsewhips, went to the places of business of the young men, and thrashed both vigorously. - Gladstone) to Stay. The current reports In regard to Mr. Gladstone's intended resignation are as sociated in the public mind with the ne gotiations for the settlement of the Irish difficulties. It is intimated that as Parnell is evidently not going to obliter ate himself, Mr. Gladstone, who has vir tually demanded Parnell's withdrawal, now proposes to get out of the dilemma by himself withdrawing and leaving the conduct of affairs to SirJWi! liam H arcourt, who has not committed himself seriously on the Parnell retirement question. But Mr. Gladstone, whatever his intentions as to the leadership, will not retire for .the present at least from tho House of Commons. He will take an active part in debate and proposes to vigorously ad vocate the bill repealing Catholic religi ous disabilities. A Muddle in Connectt'ont. The Connecticut Houso received the report of ' tho committee appointed to canvass the vote for the fci ate officers. The committee finds that 1,289 ballots were rejected for insufficient cause, and that In many towns the number of votes returned exceeds . the total number of votes cast.,, Tho committee states that it is unable to determine that any person was legally chosen to fill any of tne State offices except tjie Comptroller, to which the face of the roturns indicate that Nicholas Straub (Democrat) was elected! The House accepted the report and adopted resolutions offering to join with the Senate in a general :' recount of the vote of the .State. 1 ' V; fi .( Covering '1 heir Tracks. ' New Orleans special: The lottery managers evidently wish to cover some of their tracks. Last week suspicions were aroused among some of the stock holders! when in collecting their divi dends they wero required to sign a head ing on receipt book indorsing all expen ditures by the. lessees,' authorizing the destruction of 5 all voucher for 'money expended and approving the management of .the corncorn. Several ot the stock holders refused to sign this extraordinary resolution. , The lottery company wishes to destroy certain vouchers and books in order to save itself and certain legisla tures and judges from exposure, that will certainly be made, should the anti-lottery movement triumph at the coming State election. , Chili .Revolution. The revolutionary fleet has block aded the port of Tongeri, Chili and tho government has dispatched 3,000 troops under the command of Gen. Torborsdlls to the relief and reinforcement of that place.' It is reported that a battle hat, occurred at Tongeri between tho govern men troops and the Insurrectionist forces, but nothing is known as to the result of the engagement If one has ac tually , occurred. The revolutionists e. i orm hare occnpled Llmicb. Alto, provtnea ot Valparaiso, and have seized npon the national factories there, after having M pel led th government director, who remained loyal to the fortunes of Presi dent Balmacedla. Quilot Aquilot, a town tf about 13,000 population, in the same province, has also been captured by the rebels. Geo. Mllsa' Follcy. When shown a dispatch from Wash ington criticising his action in disposing 3f the Indians placed at Fort Sheridan, Gen. Miles Indulged in a laugh. - Becom ing serious he said: "That Indians are now quartered at Fort Sheridan Is purely a matter of military consideration. It does not require my consultation, as It Is entirely within the jurisdiction of f department" The General was asked if It was his intention to send the Indians now at Fort Sheridan to Washington. He replied: v "Never, for a momentt In an Interview which was obtained from me tbe day I came back frotthe North west I stated that the purpose of keep ing those savages there was to preveat any possibility oi another ontorean in the spring. This is my purpose now," ' The Bad Men. Chicago special: Gen. Miles, in speak ing of Indian matters, said: The Indian chiefs who went through to Washington are not dangerous. They havo gone merely to have a conference and under standing with the authorities there and will return to their tribes. Tbe Indians who remain loyal were net disarmed for the reason that it would have been in justice to have treated them the same as bostiles. With the hostile tribes only a very fowarms were left, simply enough for their personal protection. -.. I an ticipate no further trouble, and if theie is ever another war with the Indians it will be on an entirely different matter.,, Probably Saieide. a I 1 The body of Benjamin" H.xCampbeIl, the millionaire and President of the Chicago Safe and Lock Company, who mysteriously disappeared from his home November 28, was found in the Chiaago River near the Bush street . bridge recently. Mr. Campbell was sorely troubled over his business affairs at the time of bis disappearance, and a few days afterward the Safe and Lock Company, ot which he was the principle owner, was placed in the hands of a receiver. The finding of Mr Campbell's body bears out the belief, entertained ever since he left his home, that he committed suicide. One Hundred and Fifty Killed. A Pittsburgh special says: H. C. Frick, owner of Mammoth Mine No. 1, the scene of the terrible explosion, has been in almost constant communication with his representatives at tho pit since the . accident. Mr. Frick says that he has private Information to the effect that 103 bodies had been removed from the shaft Mr. Frick says that in all there were 160 men working in the mine at the time of the accident; that nine escaped with their lives, some of them badly in- lured: the rest 151 men. were either killed outright or terrible after-damp. suffocated by the Diabolical Deed of Boys. While skating on a pond at Milwaukee, Freddy Hackbarth and August Priese, both aged 13 years, were seized by three older boys, who said they wanted to "make niggers of them." After a fire had been lighted the little fellows' faces were held over the fire until the flesh rolled off and both may lose their eye sight They will, at any rate, be dis figured for life. No arrests have yet been made. The cries of the youngsters brought workmen In the vicinity to their relief, and the older ones made good their escape. A Paper Mill Blown I'p. The Kock Falls Paper Mills at Ster ling, 111., was blown up by an explosion of "bleach." The mill was demolished. Two men, John Meyers and Alonzo Bell, have been taken from the ruins dead. Three or four other workmen are miss ing and are supposed to be in the ruius. The accident happened just at the hour the day and night forces were changing places and as many were coming and going, it will be impossible to know who Is missing until daylight Sullivan on a Drunk. special from Janesville, Wis., John L. Sullivan created a panic among tne members oi his theatrical company hear Harvard on his way to Freeport He insulted one of the women of the troupe, threshed the man who protested. and took possession of the train.

They are provided with transpor tation into the United States in sleighs and wagons, in most cases being brought a distance of about 300 miles to Two Harbors, Minn., at which point the Du luth and Iron Range Railroad conveys therd to their ultimate destination. Ar rests will probably be made in a day or two. ' . - Killed by Electricity. At the Edgar Thompson Tool Works, at Pittsburgh Pa., William Brown and Charles King were sent to the rear of the converting-room to do some work. A loose electric wire was hanging near them and they began fooling with it The dynamo was not in operation, but whilo they were fooling the current was turned on.

What It Casta Issue Hew-Terken ta Ka - Isslalsi Tae Aatac Biases- aerrioe. New York haa become a city of ex tra valance In dinner-giving, and many of these entertainments, with all tha delicacies of the season and rare wines, cost from $30 to 1100 per cover. Ot oourse the latter is the outside figure; but reckoning that one gives a dinner once a week to a party of aay fifteen at the first named figure, it will prove a snug sum at the end ot the year. In or der to render these dlnnei-s complete and perfect the hostess must possess a dinner service more or less elaborate, and It It rarely, if ever, that the majority of out sider stop to consider what these consist of and how much money is spent in thil direction. In the old Roman days no. greater magnificence could have existed In the way of table decoration, winei and service, than a millionaire New Yorker displays when his wife gives a large dinner. Tha Astor family possess a gold dinner service that is the envy of every woman who has ever seen it. It Is one of the most costly In this country. It Is valued at f so.000 and la now the property of Mrs. William Astor. It hat been In the family a long time; it would be hard to describe It, as it was made in different parts of the world and was picked up on odd occasions. It is unique and has been talked about more than any other dinner set in this country. The larger dishes consist of an immense platter and center piece, end pieces, candelabras, wine coolers and pitchers. In the design is represented fruit of all description, together with the unicorn and lion in repousse work. Mrs. Astor uses a white linen table cloth of the finest texture, made especially tor her, with a wldo lace border showing a lining of pink satin. Her table is always deco rated with Uloire de Paris roses, their exquisite shade of tink matching exact ly tho satin underneath. , t,, , ' . . $ Dedicated With Blood. f ?, ' . John K. Aydelotte, editor of the But ler County Democrat was killed In an OC' cldent in the press-room of . the paper, For several days the Democrat has been using the press-room of its new building. A gas engine of the vertical pattern is used for power, and has not been work ing properly for a day or two. Mr, Adyelotte was examining the engine at the time, when Us overcoat caught in the small wheel and the governor. The wheel, about a foot in diameter, was making over 200 revolutions per minute. It is located about two feet above a hard cement floor. With inconceivable ra pidity the coat was wound around the governor, and the unfortunate man firmly held and thrown on his back on the wheel. How many times he was whirled around no one can tell. His head, arms and legs struck the cement floor with every turn, the engine being stopped by the body of the man breaking the gas-pipe that . fed it. A pressman standing by Mr, Aydelottt's . side was struck by the body as it was hurled around, and the pressman was knocked down ' and badly bruised. One of the man's shoes was hurled from his foot across tha room, striking an employe with sufficient force to almost stun him. The accident occurred so quickly that it was over before the employes in the press-room realized that it had happened. Minor State Items. Burglars are working Canton, and making some big hauls.
