III. ,'wonty-two Corpses Taken from tho Mine -Affecting Scenes. rtnATDwoon, 111., March W5. Thi- was a day of intense excitement at the Dian: ad mine. When it beeame known early this m .ruing that the bodies which were dis covered had been brought to the surface, crow. '..surged to the shaft, and a scene of the wilde-t confusion ensued. Relatives and friends of the unfortunate victims pressed about the morgue clamoring for admittance. In some cases identification was absolutely impossible. Even where the poor miner had escaped the horrible fate of being crushed by rocks and earth, tho action of the water had bloated and discolored his body beyond recognition. Up to 12:30 p.m., the eJWrts of the searching parties had been rewH .led by the finding of twenty-two bodies. Those; identified were: Patriek Wall, Joseph Bmithj Joseph Carroll, Prank Klos. Mike Itan ium, .lohn Johnson, Mathew Redmond, John Culh'gh,A. Dembrosky, John Dombrosky, Geor Boukosky, August Palenis, Frank Mi ,-' Daniel McBride, Herman Umber, John Akins and John Boyd. The remains were in every Instance In a most shocking condi tion. Whan being placed In thecomas even the most gentle handling caused the flesh to fall off In pieces. The morgue neeir was filled with the disgusting odors arising from the pu trifled mass. The fumes of the disfnfectants but added to the horrible stench. The funeral train, appropriately draped. left Braidwood for the mine at seven a. m.. returning at nine a. m. Eighteen coffins, with their disagreeable contents, were taken on the cars. But, di. -misting as was the condi tion ef the bodies, it did not detract from the grief of those whose loved ones were being taken to their final rest! ng-pl sees. A Mrs. Hediuoud, residing near the village of Diamond, signaled the train to stop as it passed her bouse. With heartrending shrieks she demanded the remains of her bo', en cased in one of the coffins. This terrible burden fn her arms, she itrthed fran1ca!iy to her desolate home, saying she eoidd not per mit her child to be buried w ithout seeing that the body was decently prepared for inter ment. When the train with its load of humanity reached the depot at llraidwood a most distressing-scene took place. Women and chil dren shrieking and crying demanded that they be allowed to see tbe rer'alns. Thi demand was acceded to, when th coffin-lids were taken oft. the Crowe passed And looked with curious eyes and bated breath at the hor- rit.le sju-ht exposed to view. One of the most artocting scenes occurred on the eolliii eon minimr the hodv of John Dembrosky. His bereaved wife, reading the tCt with her cries, wringing her hands, and weeping in the agony ol w oe, called upon God to return to her the support of her life. Kind friends took her away, and the cottms were piaceu m neuisen and taken as quickly a Dossible to the ceme teries. During the aftei noon several funeral processions passed along the thronged streets of Braidwood. The excitement seems to have abated some what. and. although crowds press eagerly for ward on the sidewalk, it is only out of idle curiosity.' The remains of a miner who had been a member of some lenevolent organiza tion, are being conveyed to their last resting place. A hand of music heads the procession nnd then follow relations and friends in car riages and wagons. Trade is going on in tho st,,. es ms usual, and Is probably increased, as the town is full of strangers. The saloons, of which there seems to be no lack, are crowded. The scenes in the morgue when the bodies were being identified were of the most melan oholy kind. A man came in, and, hastily scan ning the faces of the dead, at last stopped be side one, claiming it as his brother. At tho same moment a woman, who had been engaged in the sad task of looking at the bodies ia fear ful hopes of seeing the face of a lost one, ex claimed that the same corpse was that of her husband. A dispute arose over this, when the woman said she could tell If she was right when the boots were removed, for the reason that her husband, upon the fatal morning, when he got up, finding one of his own socks wet, had taken one of hers. Accordingly, the boots of the dead man were taken off, and disclosed one man's sock and one woman's stocking. The scene at the Diamond shaft last night was .devoid of exciting details. Belays of miners stood about discussing the incidents of their work of excavation during the day. Tho funeral train, consisting of two coaches and two Hat cars draped in mourning, was stand ing on the track near by, ready for Its next load of victims. The DaCu -V w representa tive, running across Johnnie Skinner, of the "I" shaft, was told that. If desired, he could ko down the Diamond shaft. Accordingly the nartv started, Upon reaching the bottom by means of the cage It was found that about one foot of water still remained. Although the mimes are kept steadily at work the water does not seem to lower much. Pass ing along the road of the mine the nartv encountered immense piles of soap- stone, which had fallen from the roof. etomiimr no the Dassage. In numerous places it was only by crawling upon the hands and knives that progress could lie maae. scm tcred along the route were the relics of tho dead. Here was a dinner pail, the contents just as the unfortunate man had left them, save for the mold which gathered tnicKiy over them. A little farther on wasa mildewed coat. and still further a pair of mittens. As the ad vance of the exploring party was made places were pointed out where such and such a miner's body had been found. In one spot it was said a body had been found on the top of the supporting timbers of the roof, doubtless where tho poor fellow had crawled, hoping to escape the relentless flood. Twice the rarty crawled oyer the dead bodies of mules which were buried under the fallen rock. The ex ploration was continued to the point where 1 lie work of excavating had Deen stoppeu me five hundred yards from the mouth ol the shaft- It is hard to convey an idea of the immense labor to be accomplished before the work of search can be finished. Tons and tons of rock will have to be removed. A pit boss of thirty-live years' experience claims that the mine can not bo cleared until the 4th of July next, and similar opinions exist among the miners. No conception of the task to be per formed hail entered the minds of the men un til to-day. To-night a new system of work was put in operation. A shift of men was put to work at the mouth of the shaft, and all efforts will be directed toward clearing all the debris away, so that the cars can bo run on the tracks and utilized to take away the rubbish and stone. There Is no doubt that many an unfortunate victim lies buried under these masses of debris. Old miners say that in all their varied experience of disinters they never came across one in which there was such an Immense msss of i uhhi-m to get rid of. They also said that the mine was one of the safest In which they had ever operated. While the exploring party stopped to take breath after the laborious efforts which had been made, one miner said that many a time he had stopped right there and smoked his pipe, feeling as safe as if in his own cottage. Pitt Boss Gallagher said no more bodies could possibly be taken out before to-morrow night. As the remains of the vio tims were brought to the surface to-day they were viewed by Coroner Werner, of Will Coun ty, and his Jury. No time is as yet set for tha formal inquest. Shooting a Comrade in Play. La unset, Wis.. March 28. Yesterday afternoon Louis May, Prank Mahor. and three other youths went to tho jrun-room of the Light Guard armory to play cards. May watched the other four, and, see ing some cheating going on, went to the lock er, and taking out a gun, said: "i ll shoot the next man that cheats." He then held- up a brass shell, and placed it la the gun. Soon he saw Frank Maher pass a card to his partner, and called out to hint to look out. Maher turned to May, placed bis hand on his heart, and said " Kire away." This May did, and the ball entered Maher s left eye, coming out near his left ear. He fell to the floor, but the boys thought it only a continua tion of the joke until they saw blood streaming from the bole in the unfortunate youth's head. May was nearly erased with grief, for he and the dead youth were close friends. He had taken the shell from a box containing thj shells fired in target practice a few evening Ago, and supposed that a was not loaded May was not arrested. Kenosha, Wis, March 2S. Postmaster-General Timothy O. Howe died In this city this afternoon. Mr. Howe came here on Monday last to visit with relatives for a few days before returning to his official duties at Washington. Before coming he had been at his home in Green Bay, and had visited Appleton, Oshkosh and other cities in the northern part of the State. A w-ek ago to day he took a long walk, in a driving snow storm and contracted a severe cold, nis im mediate friends -urgc4' him to remain there nntil the difficulty arising from the attack should pass away, but on Monday, feeling no worse, he started for this city, his friends at Green Bay believing that all danger was passed. Arriving here he experienced the B.une feeling of illness, but nothing serious was feared. Tuesday symptoms of pneumonia set in. He was not confined to his bed, how ever, till Thursday, when, his symptoms be coming alarming. Dr. Isham, of Chicago, was summoned. As the result of the physician's ministrations tho symptoms of the case im proved, and Mr. Howe became so much better that it was hoped and believed that all danger was at an end. Saturday nisrht, how ever, a sudden change for the worse took place, and dispatches were forwarded to Washington and other points addressed to the family und immediate friends of the sjek man asking them to com here on the first train. Mr. Howe continued to grow worse until two o'clock this afternoon, when he passed away. He remained perfectly con scious till about ten o'clock this morning and suffered but very little. After that hour ho wandered somewhat in his mind, and his ut terances at such time showed that his official duties weighed upon his mind up to the mo ment of Vi death. He was conscious at times, and at eleven o'dort showed unmis takable cvideucc that he recognised his daughter, who arrived from Washington at that hour. His death was peaceful and without pain. Ho seemed to pass away as though entering upon a natur al sleep, and for somo moments after death it was almost Impossible to decide that he was not simply asleep. Mr. Howe died at the home of his nephew. Colonel J. H. Howe. He came to this city two weeks ago, when he first arrived from Washington, and spent several days here. He was Lheu in ex cellent health. He went from here to Green Bay, and his intention was to rotum here and complete his visit before returning to Wash ington. Judge Howe was a native of Muiue, born at Uvermore in that State, February 24, IStfi, and was consequently sixty-seven years old. His wife died in 18.S1, and his only surviv ing relatives are his son Frank, daughter, Mrs. Tottcn, wife of Colonel F.. Totten, Washington; his nephew. Colonel James H. Howe; and his niece. Miss Grace Howe, of Kenosha. The News rt Washington, Washington, March 25. "Frank, your father is dead." It wa In this cruel manner that a comparative stranger informed young Mr. Howe upon tho street this afternoon that his father was no more. The shock which the son received was scarcely Sissnrr than that felt by the entire commu nity this evening when It became known, and tho surprise was less, for dispatches which had been received by members of the family during the day had prepared them for a fatal termination of Judge Howe's illness. Assist ant Postmaster-General Hatton, early this aft ernoon, received a dispatch from Kenosha in dicating that Judge Howe's illness had be come of a more alarming character. He im mediately dispatched a messenger to tho Pres ident and to the house of Judge Howe. This messenger had hardly left when another dis patch came indicating still more alarming con ditions, and soon after came the news ot his death. Mr. Hatton immediately took a car riage, went for Secretary Lincoln and for Sec retary Chandler, and with them proceeded to he White House. Tho President was visibly affected. He had scarcely heard of the serious turn in tho Illness of his Postmaster-General before the news came to him that he was dead. The death of the Postmasfrcr-General, out side of his immediate family, will bring sin cere grief to no one more than to tho Presi dent of the United States and to the remain ing members of his Cabinet. And to Judge Folger, who is himself lying upon a bod of pain, tho news, when his physicians permit it to bo broken to him, will be a terrible shock. They were nearly of the samo age, their habits were judicial, and, though com parative strangers before they had enterod the Cabinet, their relations had become of tho most cordial character. The President had learned to look upon Judge Howe as one of the most trusted of his counselors, and, whUo the Postmaster-General seldom volunteered opinions, there was no one about tho Execu tive council-chamber to whom the President more readily tui nod for suggestions than to the late Postmastor-General. The Burning Railroad Car. The passengers who escaped from the burn ing sleeper on the Pennsylvania Railroad tell thrilling stories of their narrow escapes trnta being burned alive. One of the most remark able was that of General Dudley, Commission er of Patents. He had only time to seize his artificial leg, tuck it under his arm and drag himself along the aisle toward the door, kecj Ing his face close to tho floor to avoid the blinding, suffocating flames. As he reached for his leg he remembered that, Keprcsenta tive Ben Wilson, of West Virginia, w ho occu pied a berth some distance down the car, was deaf, and the thought Hashed across his mind that perhaps the alarm might not have aroused the sleeping man. As he Crawled ulonsr on his bands, knee and stump, he lelt in ovory berth, making all possible speed, but not missing a bunk In his blind search for Wilson. Sure enough, there lay the Congressman hi one or the oertns sound asleep, in the very embrace of a fiery death, totally oblivious of his danger. Tho Commissioner shook him vigorously, but ho could not arouse the sleeper. Reaching over the prostrate form he raised the window, and then. Jumping into tbe- berth, he seized Mr. Wilson by both shoulders and shook him with desperate earnestness, which at last ac complished the object, and the member of Congress crawled throOgh the window as tho train came to a halt. The General remained cool in spite of the heat and blinding smoke, and he again placed his face within two or three inches of the floor and dragged himself through the doorway and fell from the plat form more dead than alive. The car within two minutes was all ablaze, and but for Gen eral Dudley's presence of mind, there would have been another vacancy in the West Vir ginia Congressional delegation. Very few of the passengers got away with anything except their niobt clothes. Luckily. General. Dud ley's pantaloons were fastened to his artificial lea-, and when he carried tnat on in iriumpii the. attachment came with it. Cor. Chlcarja Time. . A Big Nevada Wildcat. REEHJIOl S AN!

N. W. Christian Advocate. On Sunday night last, as Daniel Tyer and Bill Dye were strolling about a mile from their home, near Wallace, Calaveras County, they heard their dogs making a noise a short dis tance away. On reaching the scene of the trouble they found that the dogs had treed a monstrous wildcat. The cat seemed to feel quite secure, and it stretched itself at full length along one of the branches of the tree and turned its half-sleepy-looking eyes on the dogs beneath. Tyer got his shot-gun loaded with buckshot as quickly as possible, and, blazing away, knocked the wildcat off the limb to the ground. A terrible fight at onoo ensued between the animal and the besiegers. It soon vanquished the dogs, and then started for tbe young men. Tyer was just as quick as the cat. He had but one charge in his gun, and he knew he must put that where it would do the most good. As the cat made a spring Tyer fired, killing tho Infuriated animal. The cat weighed a hundred pounds. It was twenty-four inches in height and four and halt feet in length, and measured thirty-eight inches around the body.
