P,OTTsVll.u:, Pa., April 11. A shocking
accident occurred in the mine of the
Chamberlain colliery at St. Clair this af
ternoon. Miss Berlista SLaul of Sharon
Spring", N. Y., a Vnssar college student,
was vi-iting Miss Minnie Keiter of St.
Clair, a fellow student. The two young
ladle in ompiny with a young man
named Harry Short and Edwin Thomp
son, one of the operators of the colliery
entered the mine to give Miss Sliaul op
portunity to inspect the operation of min
ing coal. The mine had not been worked
for a week and none but the party ot ex
plorers were inside at the time. In the ad
jacent working, however, were A. Thomp
son another of the firm and several others
were examining the works. They were
startled by a heavy explosion and hasten
ed into tho other slope, and 100 yards from
the foot of the slope they camo upon
Messrs. Short and Thompson and the two
ladies lying upon the ground all fright
fully uurneu nud mangled. They were
taken out as speedily as possible and meu
ical attendance obtained. Miss Kieters
died this evening. Miss Shaul may sur
vive. Short remains unconscious, and his
recovery is doubtful. Thompson is pain
fullv but not iatally limbed. The precise
cause of the explosion is unknown, but It
is supposed the party carried a naked
lamp and encountered a body of fire damp

The Hartford Trestle and Several Other
Uridines Washed Away.
The genial sunshine and warm air of
Sunday melted the snow very rapidly and
as n consequence the water in many
places rose to an unusual height. About
wo and one-half miles east of Bolton on
he Central Vermont road, the water cov
red the track for a distance of nearly
lalf a mile, being in some places n
'oot deep. The train which is due here at
S:30 was held at Wuterbury for three
innrs and was then allowed to proceed to
li washout. A construction train by
going very carefully ran through the
water, but the other trains were
not allowed to go over tho track. The
passengers and baggage from the traiu
from the east were transferred by hand
cars, but the rails were spreading in places
so that those passengers who were on the
train leaving this city at 11:10 a. m. bound
east were obliged to retnru. Those who
should have reached the city nt 8:30 were
detained by the washout nbout eight
hours. The evening trains over
this division were discontinued. The
Rutland and Burlington division road
was all right at last reports except the
wash out at Cuttlngsville which neces
sitates carrying by at that point. It will
be Beveral days before repairs can be
made, as the water at Bolton was stil'
rising at last reports.
The lako at Whitehall was reported
Monday to be higher than it has been
known to bo for years. The ice in Wood

PiTTSHUiHin, April 11. Tho most im
portant arrests ever made In this part of
tho country were begun at nn early hour
tills morning. The officers of tho Pan
Handle railroad have in custody many of
tho most daring gang of railroad robbers
this country has over known. How many
members belong to It is not known, but
they ruu up Into the "Hundreds Thesteub
ings extended over a period of two or three
years and tho amount stolen reaches near
ly $500,000. Simultaneous nrrcsts were
made all along the lino of the Pan Handle
road between hero and Columbus. War
rants have been in tho hands of officers
some time, and tho persons arrested com
prise nearly the entire freight men of the
line. They Include tho conductors, brake-
men, engineers and firemen, ino ring
leaders of the gang aro outside the rail
road business and are unknown, and
some of them are now believed to be un
The first arrests were made about 2
o'clock this morning, the police surpris
ing 18 men at their boarding houses. At
daylight, fully (iO men, all railroad em
ployesconductors, brakemen, firemen
andengineers were behind the bars.
In sneak im of the arrests a prominent
ofllcer of the Pan Handle road said : "For
three years past the Pan Handle road has
been systematically robbed. Cars on sid
ings and cars on moving trains were
broken open and goods stolen, including
every description of merchandise. It is
estimated that at least $300,000 worth of
goods were taken for which the companv
had to nay. In Auuust last wo obtained a
clew, and tho company determined to
to push It to the end. Detectives were
employed, who followed up every scent
and Anally wo had tho Information upon
which to proceed. When everything was
ready we decided to make a move along
the Hue from Columbus to Pittsburg, and
2 o'clock this morning was flxed to strike
the blow. About 80 warrants were issued
forthemen in Pittsburgh. I can't tell how
many for other places, but it was at every
point along the Hue; it will run up in the
hundreds. It is tho biggest thing of the
kind that ever happened in Pittsburg, or
in railroad matters iuthe world, for noth
ing like It has ever happened before. I
cannot tell.how many men are under arrest
or who the riug-ieaders are. This much
I will say, however, we suspect outsiders
of being implicated In tho robberies, but
Know nothing positive."
The most important arrest mndo here
was that of Brakemau Youmr. He called
at the jail to see one of the prisoners this
morning and was immediately locked up.
At nrst he protested lie was innocent, but
finally admitted that he had a large lot of
stolen property at his house and told how
t lie goods had come into his possession
His confession will, It is said, convict 13
crews. Telegrams from Cadiz, Stcubeu
ville and points west of Columbus report
the arrest of a large number of railroad
men implicated In the robberies. The pre
liminary hearing will be held on the 18th.
The crews of meu that had been arrested
had left a largo number of trains deserted.
There were 24 of these trains packed
closely together on the side tracks in the
yards. The detention of freight, how
ever, was only temporary.
Joseph Hue, special agent of the Penn
sylvania railroad, who has been chiefly In
strumental in running the thieves down
says : Eastern bound trains were not mo
lested. Western bound trains have been
the sufferers. Near as we can estimate it
these robberies have been going on two
years. After a most exhaustive search we
concluded that the robberies were com
mitted west of Pittsburg. After two
months work we found they were commit
ted between Pittsburg and Dennison :
that out of 80 crews 75 were practicing a
glirnntic scheme of robbery.
"We were badly stalled at first by the
fact that the seals on the cars were gen
erally found intact when the cars reached
Columbus on the wav westward. The
seal is of lead about the size of a nickel
and is about one-eighth of an inch thick.
The wire used in connection with it is
one-sixteenth Inch iron wire. There are
curls in it to prevent its being pulled
through the lead seal. The method of
using it is as follows : The wire is passed
through the seal, then through the hasp
ol the car-doors, then back through the
seal again, forming an uubroken circle.
An instrument then is used in impressing
'One of our brightest men concealed be
hind a car saw a freight crew come to a car.
Tho wire was pulled out of the seal, the
door thrown back and the car entered. In a
short time the men emerged carrying a
lot of plunder. The conductor shut the
door, ran the wire through the seal where
it had been pulled out and with it board
struck It u blow. The wire went back to
its place, and the blow united the soft
lead again without destroying the letter
ing on either side and the seal was ap
We now have our hands ou every
tnievisu employe and we are in easy reacu
of those who are not arrested. The com
bination to rob a freight train necessitated

Amateur llanolmlllM llimy Tho DetrollH
tho Kiivnrltm In tho Professional League
While baseball circles are chiefly inter
ested In tho doings of the professional
players the amateurs aro bv no means
forgotten. Among college men baseball
takes a high rank In the Held sports and
the light for tho collegiate championship
of the dlamuud always causes much excite
ment. Tho .recently formed baseball
league between Harvard, Yale, Princeton
nnd Columbia promises to furnish this
season some remarkably good contests,
All the club-;are strong, and in this league,
at least, it may bo said that tho chance of
every member forgetting the pennant is
good. Columbia will be represented by a
particularly strong nine, and dnrlng the
winter ita members have been in regular
practice. They are already getting out on
the field and mako a fine appearance.
Though not bound down by fines, as
nmonglthc professional players, the college
boys observe their training rules In the
strictest manner possible, nnd their organi
zation might well furnish an example to
some of tho professional clubs. Hie
Princeton college journnls express much
confidence in the ability of tho Jersey boys
to carry off the honors.
Several of tho men who did such good
work for the team last year are still with
them and the newmatarlal is said otbeex
cellent Harvard is very confident almost
toolconfldent. !IIer men have been practic
ing In the cage all the winter and should
undoubtedly make a good showing, how
ever. Strong meu from last year are still
with them, and if the crimson does not
come out ahead, the friends of the old col
lege will be greatly disappointed. Yule, as
usual, doesn't sav much. She knows her
boys aro good and prefers to let their deeds
speak for them. Columbia men seem to
think that If the white and blue is not at
the top at, tho end of the season the blue
alone will be. Still so little is known of
the comoaratlve merits of the clubs in this
intercollegiate league that no one cares to
predict which will win. Five games will be
played In this cltv, as follows: Harvard
vs. Columbia, April 30 ; Yale vs. Columbia,
May 21; the same, May 28; Harvnrd vs.
Columbin, June 4 ; Princeton vs. Colum
bia, June 8.
This leaguedose not interfere with the
regular Iutercollsgiate Baseball Associa
tion, which includes a uumoer ot ine small
er colleges. In the latter the fight is more
uneven, as some or tne colleges aro not
represented by strong teams. But the
contest for llrstplace will bequitoasclose,
probably, as It was last year, anu.uso, win
be very exciting.
Among the professional clubs now nil is
activity. Field practice is now In order,
and already several exhibition games have
been played. The .New yorksare getting
together in good shape, althoimh forsome
uuknowii ,reason Manager Mutrie still
puts oil higului: some of his best men. Ev
ery one is wondering whom he will will
put at third in place of Elstetbrook. All
Mint. Mr. Mil trio will sav on the subject is.
that when the tlmo comes he will have
third base covered in a way thnt will sur
prise every one. Tho "Mets" are all out
now in good shape. Those who have seen
them in tho Held ngrce that they aro a fine
aggregation, nnd from being one of the
most maligned clubs in the country they
have become one of the most praised. All
the men show that they have taken care
of themselves during the winter, and that
a week or two's practice will put them in
condition to begin the championship series
At present they seem to be thinking more
of their coming fight with the New Yorks.
Should they deteat the latter they think
that they will take the "giants" place in
popular estimation in this city. The three
games therefore which these two teams
are soon to play will doubtless be of an
unsually exciting character, and there are
plenty of men about town who are ready
to back the "Mets."
In the league series just at present, be
fore any of the teams have crossed bats,
the majority of opinion seems to be In fa
vor of the Detroits for tirst place.
Mrs. Mary A. Livermoro.
During the civil war, Mrs. Mary Liver
more became distinguished throughout
our country, by her services in the sani
tary commission. Her work in caring for
the sick and wounded in hospital and Held
and the plans made and executed by her
and her associates for the relief of the
"boys in blue" have become a part of his
tory. A great mass meeting was held iu
Chicago for the purpose of raising fuuds
for the commission. Among the speakers
who were to address the assembly was a
man who was to tell the story of Mrs.
Livermore, then just returned from the
front. He made up his mind that the
needs and sufferings of the defenders of
our country would seem to the people
vastly more real it told by Mrs. Livermore
herself. Having never spoken betore a
promiscuous assembly is it any wonder
that tho woman shrank from this task im
posed upon her ? With the utmost timid
ity she came npon the platform. Before
she had left it her pathos nnd eloquence
had won all hearts. Thenceforth Miry
A. Livermoro was famed as an orator.
It was Mrs. Mary A. Livermore and her
great hearted associate, Mrs. A. II. Hodge
of Chicago, who projected those great
"sanitary fairs" an enterprise so stupend-
that there were not wanting those
whole plan chimeri-
Ise i25,000 as a net ro
ey realized. In the lace ot such pre
dictions, nearly four times that sum.
From other fails held iu other cities after
the plan of the Chicago fair not les than
110,000,000 were contributed toward tho
preservation of the health nud comlort of
the bovs iu blue.
The courauo and executive ability of
Mrs. Livermore nnd her hundreds of asso
ciates in tills patriotic and humauitariau
work was equalled only by their motherly
tenderness as they ministered to the sick
nnd wounded in hospital nnd Held.
Speakingof Mrs-Livermore's remarkable
Industry and endurance, her associate, M rs.
Hodge said, "Often when we were nt the
front after a battle and I had gone to my
bed In utter exhaustion after a duy's nurs
ing, I would hear the pen of that indom
itable woman scratching away into the
night or into the dawn. Articles for her
husband's paper In Chicago, appeals to
the people for supplies, letters to the anxi
ous friends of wounded soldiers these she
would toss off nt electric speed, resuming
her hospital work betimes, next day.
