' Secretary 'lariom Drops Dead a Baa
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. -

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
" Secretary Vfiudom's Remains at Wash.
v Washington special:-The remains of
the late Secretary Windom arrived her

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-
til the others had taken their departure.!

Gossip is already busy with probabilH
tics as to Mr. Windom't successor, and!
the general belief is that Congressman

son of his prominent connection with)

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

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

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

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

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

occurred at Tongeri between tho govern

forces, but nothing is known as to the
result of the engagement If one has ac

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.,,

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.

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

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.
