fAVORS A DEPARTMENT 1
Of MINES AND MINING
Dill for EstnbllsHment of Bureau ot
Mines and Mining Will Soon be
Brought Up In Congress
Washington Tho proposed cstab
llshment in tho department of tho In
terloi of a bureau of mines and min
ing was unanimously but unofficially
roncurreil In by tho house committee
on mines and mining and it
Is understood that within a
week or two the subcommittee to
which has been referred several bllla
to establish such a buernu will draft
a bill to accomplish that purpose and
report It favorably to the general
committee
The full committee was addressed
on the subject by former United
States Senator William M Stewart of
Nevada who favored tho creation of
f > a bureau In the Interior depart
ment rather than In the department
of commerce and labor because of
tho natural and necessary connection
It would have with the geological sur

WILL ABANDON MINE
As Soon as Bodies Are Recovered
Coal Mine at Hanna Will be
Sealed Up
Hanna Wyo The bodies of only
five of the fiftynine miners and mine
officials killed In the nl fated mlno
No 1 of the Union Pacific Coal com
rany have been recovered Other
bodies will probably not be reached
for several days
Tho widows and orphans aro boo
ing cared for and there Is no destitu
tion The entrances of the mlno
where the dead miners are entombed
have been sealed and until the fire
Is smothered or some method Is de
vised for lifting the lethal gases
which fill the workings and it be
comes possible to go down the slope
and fight the flames at close quar
ters no effort to enter the mine will
be made for certain death undoubt
edly < < would await those who dared
venture Meanwhile great forces ot
men are j laboring tit both stopo en
trances removing wreckage So ti
tanic were the blasts of burning gas
that tho lining of the stopes was
stripped and hurled forth to fall In
fragments over a wide expanse of
prairie Timbers as large as tele
graph poles were thrown 1000 feet
from the pit
Many suits for damages will be
brought at once against the coal com
pany by relatives of the victims and
ii l Is estimated that this double dis
aster will cost the operators not less
than 500000 The holocaust of 1903
cost the company more than 1000
000 It is announced now that this
mine will bo abandoned and scaled
as soon as tho bodies are recovered
There is talk of petitioning the gov
ernor to appoint a commission of ex
ports to probe this disaster and If
the rumors afloat as to the unsafe
condition ot the colliery are verified
then efforts will bo made to close It
I through process of law

Attitude of Consul Fisher Prompts
Russia to Seek an Explanation at J
the Embassy In St Petersburg k fl f
and Also From Washington f
St Petersburg The Russian gOY
eminent Is disturbed by tho attitude
assumed by Fred D Fisher hS
American consul at Harbin In that
matter of recognizing tho Jurisdiction
of Russia In Manchuria Mr Fisher
Insists that Chinese sovereignty In
Manchuria Is supreme and further
more he has supported the protests
of China against tho establishment
by Russia of municipalities in th v
railroad zone at Harbin and Challar1
independent of the Chinese govern
ment and his attitude In this Russtf
Chinese difficulty has prompted RUB
sin to seek an explanation of hli
course both at tho American embassy
here and In Washington f
I
Washington Is admitted at tho
state department that the status of
ho American consul has been made
the subject of representations tp
iWshlngton by the Russian govern
uent but while negotiations are pend
ing tho officials are loath to discuss
It The Important fact Is developed
however that tho American consul
Mr Fisher no toe tine on his own Ini
maUve In declining to seek the per
mission of Russia to exerclse his con
eular functions On the contrary it
is understood that hes simply exe
cuting a carefully considered plan of
the state department to bring through
proper means a recognition not only
by Russia but by other nations in
terested In Manchuria of thp lntdg
rityof the Chinese s
It was long ago perceived that to
admit the right of political control of
either Russia or Japan over the so
called railroad zone In Manchuria
including as it does the principal
commercial depots and capable as It
It of indefinite expansion of boun
daries at the whim of lease holders
would soon completely defeat John
Hays dream of the open door In
Manchuria

evening not to be used again unUI
a wage settlement has been reached
and a scale adopted between tho
members of the United Mlno Work
ers of America and the coal opera

Sixtynine Lives Were
Snuffed Out

ited by another catastrophe Saturday
afternoon and tho lives of probably
sixty men wore snuffed out by nn ox
Ilouton of gas In mine No 1 of tho

ton with a crew of eighteen men all
experienced miners wltli gas men
and file fighters went down Into tho

was a rush to the mine Both entries
had caved In and mine timbers had
been blown great distances about tho
outsldo workings Relief parties went

1030 oclock at night snuffing out
the lives of the members of n rescue
party iricludlng State Mlno Inspector
D M Sites The names of tho men
killed in tho first oxnloslon wore as
certained from the companys books
but thoso of the rescuers were not
known as no record was kept of those
who volunteered for this dangerous
work
That none hesitated In responding
to tho call for volunteers In the res
cue of their fellow workmen after the
first explosion is shown in tho fact
that not a working official of the three
mines of t1 oU PaclflcCoal COM
pany In this camp Is loft All wero
In tho mine reeking to aid their
stricken friends when the second ox
plosion transformed mine No 1 into
a shambles

member of the local lodge of United
Mine Workers of America Is missing
supposedly dead In tho mine
Tho disaster brings tho number ol
victims of explosions In mine No 1
during tho twenty years of Its opera
tion to the neighborhood of 300 The
