Thursday evening at about 7 o'clock a lire started in » pile of lumber in the southern portion of Farnsworth Bros lumber yard at Scranton. As soon as tho alarm had sounded tho white and colored tiro companies repaired to the scene, and turned their hoso on the burning pile. For about three hours, with the assistance of the pumps of tho mill and planer, it seemed that they were making some headway' iu subduing the liâmes, but us the Btroug southeast breeze, that was blowing at the time, got stiffer and began to come in spite ful gusts, nil hopes of saving the lum Iht were abandoned, and. they turned their attention toward saving tho milT prop»Tty. At about 11 p.m. the Moat Point tire company, with their shower, arrived, and, taking up a position, advanced for an hour to chock the progress of the fire. At length the Rent became so intense that the men wero compelled to remove the engine to a position a hundred yards further north, whero it remained all night, and with the assistance of the two other companies and mill engines, effectually prevented the flames from extending to the mill. While this was going on tho tugH Fox and Eva arrived, and taking up a position in the south of tho mill began pouring copious streams of wutar upon it, and prevented -the fire from extending iu that direction. It is esti mated that between 3,000,000 and 4, 000,000 feet of lumber wore destroyed. COTTON C HOP. COTTON C HOP. jail tho of in ue as San Interesting Figures About the Fleecy Staple.

Assistant Secretary Hamlin had reached a decision in the Thiel case for Sugar Drawback Cases. Tho experts who have been called in by Secretary Hamlin to consider the sugar drawback cases now pending be fore the department, are hard at work upon the matter. Secretary Hamlin said that the subject was one of tho most difficult of solution,and had given him moro trouble than any of the com plex questions that are constantly aris ing and which the department is ex pected to straighten out. Sufficient progress had already been made, how ever, on the work to enable him to state that a report in the premises may be expected during the early days of Jan uary. There have been bnt few of these claims filed from New Orleans. of of at K Thawed the Dynamite. Three Italian laborers were killed by an explosion of dynamite Saturday afternoon. They were Antonetti Brel le, 48 years old, married; John Bose, 35 and Frank Broke 32 years. The men, with about sixty other Italians in charge of Foreman James Avery, have been for some weeks excavating on the New York & Hartford railroad tracks for a new railroad station. The threo Italians took ont three cartridges which were frozen and going to. the top of the bluff, 40 feet above the other work men, dag a hole in the earth and lit a fire to thaw them out. They placed cartridges near the blaze and/sat down to wait. Suddenly an explosion oc curred and the Italians were blown to pieces.

The suggestion has been made to cretary Herbert by the naval chiefs that congress be requested to immedi ately authorize the amendment of the last naval actf so as to permit the de partment to contract for the building of 6ix battleships instead of the two provided for. It is urged that in view of the low figures of the bids received at the recent opening, it would be greatly in the interest of economy to accept all of the bids, and accordidg to this plan the Newsport News Company would be given the contract for two of the ships, the Union Iron Works of Jian Francisco a contract for two and the Cramps a contract for two. All of the ships would be of the Keafsage type, with double tnrrets and 13-inch The cost of the six ships at the K J< guns. outside, an«l there is reason to believe that the bidders would still further scale down their figures, would be $10, 440,000 exclusive of armor, whereas the last congress fixed tho limit of cost for but two ships, with armor, at $8, - 000,000, The necessary armor would cost about $3,000,000 or $4,000,0000 additional. Secretary Herbert has the matter under consideration. A Bystander Killed.

Accidents Happened in North Carolina and Tennessee. TWENTY-FIVE KILLED. Fire Damp Causes the Destruction of the North Carolin» Mine and the Some Thing Caused the Destruction of a Mine In Tennessee. At 9 o'clsckThnrsday morning, short ly after the day force,' numbering 67 men had gone on duty at the Cumnock coal mines, six miles west of Raleigh, N. C., a terrible fire damp explosion occurred, with fearful effect. Upon hearing the report the people of the village and relatives of the entombed miners hastened to the scene, bat for some time thoy were nnable to gain any t jdings from below. After pumping fresh air into the shafts several miners were preuailed upon to venture down and investigate. They found and brought ont 25 men from shafts No. 2 and 3. J*'ive or six of them were badly wounded and sumo of them will probably die, othere were slightly wounded. A mule and two men were killed in slope No. 2. Alter considerable delay the searching party entered slope No. 1, where they were greeted by a most horrible and ghastly sight. Dead men feurfully mutilated, were found, some of them partly covered np with pieces of coal, timber and other debris. The searching party came np and reported what they had found. At 4 o'clock Jen or twelve miners went down to bring np the dead bodies, bnt at last accounts none ,of the dead had been recovered. It is believed that 43 men were killed. Borne of them were negroes and foreigners and the rest na tives of North Carolina. Beverol had families living at Cumnock. Eight of the dead miners were from Pennsylva nia. A quantity of dynamite was in the xnine-and exploded, wrecking coal cars, and splitting massive pieces of timber into kindling wood. Mothers wives and sisters were aronnd the mines all day, weeping and wringing their hands with grief, expecting every minute to see the lifeless forms of some one brought up. to ANOTHER ONE. ANOTHER ONE. A special from Chattanooga says twenty-four miners lost their lives Fri day, in the Nelson, entry No. 1, near Dayton. Tenn., by an explosion of fire damp. The. explosion was succeeded by a terrific crash which indicated that tho.roof of the passage through which, they had entered had fallen in. No avenue of escape was left, and there is no possibility that the men will be found alive. The mine is tho property of the Dayton Coal & Iron Company, three miles from the town and reached by a spur track. The men, both white and colored, including several boys, entered the mine to go to work at 7 o'clock, but nothing of tho awful ca tastrophe was known until 11 o'clock, when tho entry No. 10, found thsir way blocked by a solid wall of coal and slate. The Nelson mine has been worked for twelve years or more, and the entry where the unfortunate men entombed ran back more than two miles from the mouth of the mine. The mine is of the kind common in the Southern States known as the drift or level vained mine, worked in the direction of the veiij straight in to the face of the mountain, but before the entry is reached a long slope ex tends to a level several hundred yards below at an angle of about 20 degrees, the cars being pulled np from the foot of the slope where tram Cars drawn by males connect with it to the outside by a cable which hauled the coal up with remarkable rapidity. Rescuing parties have been working like grim death all day trying to reach them, but it is prob able that they will be several days forc ing an opening through the wall of fallen roofings, which must be made safe as they proceed. The fcJ quickly exhausts the workers, who are relieved by fresh hands. The wori: will continue'day and night until the bodies are recoevred. At the drift mouth hundreds of women and children soon gathered and the display of their grief and despair heartrending. Moth ers . wringing their hands, weeping daughters and little children, sweet hearts and grey-headed grandparents, all in the greatest distress, for they have been told that there is no hope, is a spectacle from which one turns sick ■ , The mine is ventilated by air-shafts or passages so that the cav ing in of the wall in the entry cut off the draft and death was certain to those who breathed the poisoned ait. ur»« on at heart. Looking After American Missionaries. As the reports from Minister Terrell at Constantinople show that there is grave reason io apprehend further re ligions outbreaks in Turkey, by which the safety of American residents there will be threatened. Secretary Herbert, at the instance of the department of state, has issued general instructions to Admiral Stdfridge, on the coast o% Africa, to afford protection and shelter aboard the four vessels of his fleet to American who may be disposed to acce p| jt. No attempt will be made to send any force from the vessels into the interior of the country, as it is realized that thia be utterly im practicable with the men at hand, and ^p^tio as well, bat as Mr. Terrell has informed the state department that be can secure safe conduct to tLe coast of any of the American missionaries who can be induced to leave their sta ^ goverQment feeJj| tbat it has j oJje w ^ b in its power to secure the j.
