A SCORE OF THEM DEAD
Twenty Bodies of Victims of the Hart*
ford Mine Disaster Recovered
—Six Missing.
Fourteen of the Entombed Miners Res­
cued Aii*e—The Dead Hor­
ribly Mangled.
Heartrending1 Sceues When the Dead
Bodies Were Being Itrought
From the Mine.
WILKESBARRE, Pa., May 17.—Four­
teen men were taken out of the caved in
Hurtforil mine alive. There is great
rejoicing among tlie friends and rela­
tives of the rescued men, who tell thrill­
ing stories of their efforts to save them­
selves.
It is now stated that all of the en­
tombed miners are dead. At 7 o'clock
a. m. the rescuing- party discovered one
of the Hungarian brothers named Russ
in an abandoned working-. He was still
alive and said that he thought the other
men were all safe in one of the breasts.
This gave rise to the rumor that all the
men were safe. Russ died on being
brought to the surface. All the men,
with the exception of those rescued in
the night, it is now said, were killed by
the explosion which occurrd two hours
after the cave in took place. The bodies
of the victims are being taken out.
They are horribly mangled, in some in­
stances heads having been blown en­
tirely off.
Found Nineteen of the Dead.
WILKESBARRE, Pa., May 17.—Explor­
ing parties have found nineteen dead in
the mines and six more are missing and
it is probable they are also dead.
Heartrending Scents.
When the nineteen dead and charred
bodies were being brought out the scene
at the mine was heartrending in the ex­
treme. Men, women and children,
shrieking and groaning, fell upon their
knees, lifted their hands and eyes
towards Heaven and prayed for the
dead.
DAMS GAVE WAY.
A Main« Village Suddenly Submerged by a
Fearful Rush of Water*
GOLDSBORO, Me., May 17.—The larg­
est washout that has been known here
for fifty years, occurred on Wednesday.
The upper dam, two and a half miles
north of the county road, a depth of
fifteen feet, and an area of five square
miles, went out with a full head on
while the pond below was running over.
The dam has been considered unsafe for
two years. At about 11 o'clock in the
morning Ernest Whittaker, a lad of 16,
living half a mile below the dam, saw
the first water. He went rushing at
break-neck speed down through the vil­
lage sounding the alarm. Men left their
work and women came into the streets
where the water was soon knee-deep.
For two long hours there was the great­
est anxiety, but strange to say, none of
the mills yielded, though nearly all the
dams on the stream have disappeared,
besides the bridge and some cordwood.
CHILDREN SMOTHERED.
Three Killed by the Caving of a Brooklyn
Cellar Kxcavation.
BROOKLYN, May 17.—While a number
of children were playing in an excava­
tion for a cellar at Seventh avenue and
Tenth street, the embankment caved in
upon them, and Arthur Taylor, aged 8
years, his brother John, aged 3. and
Percy Weaver, aged 8, were smothered
to death before they could be extricated.
Otto Bruno, aged 9, was taken out alive
and will recover. The bank had been
undermined by recent rains.
WINOXA, Minn., May 16.—A fire
started in the fire room of the Winona
Mill company's immense flouring mill
about 1 o'clock a. m. and destroyed the
entiie plant, including the mill and ele­
vator. The total loss on the property
is estimated at $300,000, and may exceed
that. It was insured for $200,000, mostly
in mutual companies. There were about
2.'j,000 bushels of wheat in the elevator
and 1,200 barrels of flour in the mill.
The company employed about 100 men.
The mill had a capacity of '2.B00 barrels,
and was about the finest equipped build­
ing of the kind in the world.
TOWNSITE TROUBLES.
A Valuable Piece of Property Opposite
Chamberlain in Dispute.
CHAMBERLAIN, S. D., May 16.—A
struggle that promises to be of several
years' duration has commenced for the
possession of 320 acres of land which
lies directly north of the city in what
was until recently a part of the Crow
Creek and Winnebago reservation.
When these lands were opened for set­
tlement in 1885, the two claims above
mentioned were taken by homesteaders.
Upon the withdrawal of the reservation
from the public domain two months
after it was thrown open, the original
settlers left, and the claims were shortly
afterward taken by settlers, who have
since remained upon the land. About
four years ago the two claims were, by
legislative act, included in the city
limits of Chamberlain. Recently an
organization of citizens put a townsite
filing on the claims, and attempts were
repeatedly made by the townsiters to
erect dwellings thereon, but the settlers
did not take kindly to the idea of
having buildings erected in their onion
and potato patches, so they confiscated
the building material as fast as it was
put upon the ground. The townsiters.
before attempting to build, had the tract
surveyed into two-acre lots, and now
the settlers are engaged in pulling up
the survey stakes and using them for
firewood. It will be many years before
the matter will be finally settled. The
two claims are handsomely located and
are very valuable.

'•No pent-lip Utlea contracts our powers.
But the whole boundless continent is ours."
America is pre-eminently the land of
opportunities. If a man fails to strike it
rich in one place, he easily moves to
another. The American is not a descend­
ant of the clam. Progress and change is
his motto. Are you located in the far
north, where drouth has made short
crops for a few years, where collections
are slow and business dull? Uncle Sam's
domain to the east, south and west is a
boundless one, and you may perhaps
retrieve your fortunes by change of locu­
tion Whenever you do determine to
move, remember that "the Burlington"
is the great through lino from the north­
west to all points, und buy your tickets
that way. Your local agent, can supply
you, or writo to W. J. C. Kenyon, Ger.
