Two bodies were located at 3:50
o'clock this morning in chamber No.
30, 12,000 feet from the mouth of the
mine, and at 5:30 o'clock eight more
bodies were found in chambers Nos.
31 to 35.
The condition of the bodies indicates
that the men were instanly killed, by
the terrific force of the explosion.
President Welborn, of the company,
stated he did not believe any more
bodies -would be found soon, for the
reason that the rest of the imprisoned
men are scattered through the various
workings far from the mouth of the
Debris Delays Work.
- Arrangements were at once made for
bringing the bodies out, but this will
be very slow on account of the great
quantity of debris choking the tun
nels. The work of rescue is being
greatly delayed by the presence ct
black danp in great quantities in the
chambers off the entry J-7. Where it
is possible, these rooms are being
bratticed and isolated.
Guard lines are drawn tightly about
the mine this morning, and no one but
employes are allowed within a quarter
of a mile of the entrance.
Mine Bosses Summoned.

hands of the town marshal a batch of
summons for mine superintendents, pit
bosses, assistants andmen who looked
after the sprinkling, of the mine, to
appear before a jui-y which will in

after the dead are removed from the
mine. Austrian and Italian consuls
also have arrived to inquire into the
cause of the explosiqn.

Two bodies were brought out of the

EXPERTS TO STARKYILLE
Washington, r. C, Oct. 11. A special
car, carrying government niining ex
perts, left Seattle today for Starkvile,
Colo., to assist in the work of taking
the men out of the Starkville mine.
The work will be under the direc
tion of George S. Rice, chief mining
engineer, and H. M. Wolfin, of the
Seattle station, and J. G. Roberts, gov
ernment mining engineer stationed at
ence to the command given in each of
the two passages above cited, where
the expression afflict his soul" must
be understood, as It is throughout the
j Bible, as synonymous with fasting.
The chief, the real aim of the day
of atonement is the reformed life. All
the external elements of the day's ob
servance its worship and austerities
are intended to promote this supreme
purpose. They cannot do duty for it.
The act of fasting is partly to servo
as a self-imposed chastisement, and
partly it has a reflex influence. For
hunger and weakness tell upon tho
conscience; they mortify pride, break
down obstinacy, cast men down before
God in huniility and contrition. But'
fasting does even more than that.
Taking the worshipper away from
such carnal occupations as eating and
drinking, it helps to fix his thoughts
upon the needs of the soul. It makes
the day one .of physical abstinence and
self-denial, but also of correspondingly
