By Union Associated Press. Johnstown, Pa., July 11.-Up to early today rescuing parties have succeeded in taking out 75 bodies from the ruins of the great rolling mill coal mine which oc curred yesterday afternoon. It is now estipated that between 200 and 250 have perished. The explosion took place in the Cam bria Steel company's mine at 12:20 yesterday afternoon. The disaster is only less fright ful than the flood of 1889 in cost of life. It will take several days to determine the numberof dead, as at least 450 men are impris oned. The disaster occurred in the part of the mine known as Klondyke. Itis hoped that many have been saved by pumping firesh air into the mine. All night hundreds of brave men have been fighting death in the vain attempt to reach the scene of the explosion through the gas filled chambers of the colliery.* Four victims of the Klondyke mention have been brought to the surface alive. Hundreds of wait ing women and children are at the entrance of the mine waiting for news of loved ones. The en tire cityis in mourning. SHOULD USE MORE CARE. By Union Associated Press.
