Discovery o1"r Cave.
A special from Bioomfield, Ky., says : J.
A. Aileu, of this city, while excavating the.
foundation for a new mill struck the dome
t-f a cavern of iaomenee proportions, from
which a strong current of cold air issued
with great force as the workmen made the
opening. Torches were procured and Mr.
Alien aud Mr. Gain Hurst were lowered
down by the means ot a windlass. It was
about GO feet from the surface to the floor of
the cave which they found tobe leyel and
sandy as if it was ouce the bed of an ancient
oubterranean stream. They followed the
main avenue for a distance of over two
miles and discovered au opening in a clifl'on
the farm of Mr. Benjamin Wilson and a well
beaten path was easily discerned that wan
once trod by human beings, although it is
now in many places covered with forest
tree, and undergrowth. Mr. Allen and Mr.
Hurst, after emerging from the cave, has
tered back to town aud reported the result
of i heir discoveries. A larue party was at
once formed which eutered the open?
ing of tho cliff on the Wilson farm.
On one of the main avenues numer?
ous evidences existed that the place bad
evidently been the abode of the cave men,
as numerous relics were found in the shape
of pottery and bronze articks. A sepulchre
was also discovered in a large niche, or
avenue at right angles with the roniu avenue
and in it are numerous mumitied bodies.
Three of ttiem have been removed to the
town an?! excite great cutiosity. The form?
ations ir: the cave are beautiful beyond de?
scription. Stately towers of stalagmites
and beautiful pendants of translucent stal?
actites, suggestive of grotesque and unique
figures are encountered nil along tha won?
derful subterranean avenue. There is a beau?
tiful little lake with water us clear a9 crys
tu> and as is usual in cave Btreams, it is full
of tiny eyeless fish. The avenues of the
cave will measure in all probability about
f.evec n>ile8, so tnut it may be fairly coosid
eredanot herriva; to the Mam moth,and iscer
taibly one of the rnuuy great cave wondes
of Kentucky, the conutry of caves.
Europe's War Clouds ?The holiday
seasou has somewhat dulled the edge of the
European crisis, even the newspapers suc?
cumbing to the mollifying influence of
Christmas festivities. Nevertheless .the
Cologue Gazette, which is usually more re?
served thau mo.-t of the great continental
journals iii its cxoresMous of political opin?
ion, sees nothing in the f-kuutiun to justify
confidence in much further prolonging a
state of peace. "The Czar," it soys, "is sur?
rounded by intrigues which wili never rest
uutii war is waged to theend of substituting
Ru-siau for German ir iluence throughout
Europe." Continuing its article, the paper
issues a defiant iuvitation to the Moscovite
empire to come on and learn that not even
the war it seeks can overthrow the power
of Germany nor increase thp influence of
Russia. The Mauser rifle factory at
Oberndorf, Wurtemburg, is filling u con?
tract to make 700,000 rifles for Turkey.
This contract, together with other unfinish?
ed orders, has necessitated the working of
the factory night and day, the inference be
in? that early shipments of the finished
weapons are imperatively demanded. It is
semi of?cially stated that RuBsia has tried
to arrive at au understanding with Austria
on the Bulsaritm questions, but wa3 referred
to the Berlin treaty as the only basis of set?
tlement. The present comparative calm is
attributed to the moderation and love of
pence to tho-e cabinets who are treacherous
ly ptepanng fur war. Workmen belonging to
the Austrian reserves have been ordered to
join their regiments forthwith.
Strikers Run Riot.?The St. Paul Pio?
neer Press special from Duluth eays that from
150 to 175 employes of the Minnesota gran?
ite works, ut Honesdale, now on a strike for
back pay, are rioting. Jamea Lesler, tele
graph operator ut Honesdale, wire3 : "The
rioters have gained possession of the tele?
graph office. I have now a revolver on each
Bide of my head. They have demanded the
money in the safe and are trying to open it."
Hero the message stopped, and nothing has
been heard since. There was less than $200
in tho safe. Deputy Sheriff Free, of Tower,
left with a posse of twenty men yesterday
afternoon to quell the riot. The strikers
have been gettiDg cut granite for the new
auditorium building at Chicago. The labor?
ers are mainly Hungarians and Bohemians,
aud form almost the total population of
Honesdale. They are said to be drunk, f A
