lies Attempt to Mob the
Mine Officials.
Vienna, .bin. 21.— An explosion of
fire damp occurred today in the Fort-
Bchritt mine at Dux, in Bohemia, lt is
known that eighty miners were killed
and scores injured. The explosion oc
curred this morning when the shifts
were changing. A cage full of miners
had been lowered half-way down the
shaft when the ground trembled, a loud
report was heard and the cable attached
to the cage gave such a lurch that the
lowering machinery broke. A rush of
air and dust from the pit's mouth,
the sound of crashing timbers and the
cries of the men in the cage gave warn
ing to the men above of the extent of
the disaster. Help was summoned, the
machinery was repaired after a delay
of half an hour and the caee was raised.
Ten of the occupants had been killed
Instantly by the shock, ten had suffered
fractures from which they cannot re
cover, and live who had broken limbs
and internal injuries will live. They
had been half-suffocated by the gas
rising in the shaft, and said that no man
could live below.
Nunc Left Alive.
An hour later the superintendent of
the mine and five miners from the night
shift went down in the cage. They
were unable to go more than a hundred
yards from the shaft into the gallery,
but they found fourteen dead bodies.
Of the fifty men who were waiting for
the cage, ten had been killed and forty
had been partially crushed by falling
timbers or half suffocated by the foul
air. A short distance from the shaft the
superintendent found four bodies which
had been crushed beyond recognition
by a falling beam. The bodies
and the injured were taken to the top,
where the whole miniug settlement had
gathered to watch the work of rescue.
The men who had been brought up
from the bottom said that a few min
utes after the explosions they had heard
* cries and groans from the mouth of the
gallery about tiliO yards from the shaft.
There" was heavy timber work at this
place, anil they believed that the men
in this gallery had beed imprisoned by
the falling beams. They believed that
some forty men had been at work there.
Shortly before the cage came down they

Another rescue party went down at
once, and, after three of them had been
carried back to the shaft unconscious,
penetrated to the entrance of the gal
lery. The entrance was completely
blocked by the wrecked woodwork.
The rescue party could see several dead
bodies on the other side of the timbers,
but were unable to get at them, and re
turned to the top empty-handed. It is
believed that all the men in the gallery
were suffocated or killed by the shock
of the explosion. Twelve miners who
worked in the extreme interior of tlie
mine on the night shift, and had not

eomuauions, are also believed to be
Despite the apparent hopelessness of
the situation, a reselling party is still in
the mine, and thousands nave gathered
at the pit's mouth. When the extent of
the disaster began to become evident
the women of the dead men's families
attempted to mob the mine officials, ac
cusing them of carelessness in the man
agement of the mine and of indifference
as to the fate of their husbands and
brothers below. The mine officials sent
to Dux for police, and three companies
of soldiers are camped in the fields
around the pit's mouth tonight. The
miners' families are still at watches,
and probably will remain in the fields
all night, despite the inclemency of the

Over a Thousand Lost in tho
Holocaust in China.
Sax Fkancisco, Jan. 24.— 1n Shang
hai papers which arrived yesterday ad
ditional details are given of the fright
ful loss ot life in the burning of the
great temple near Canton ou Dec. GO.
The facts show that the disaster was
more horrible than the first advices in
dicated, ll seems that on the night
before the lire a band of brigands, after
having despoiled a number of family
houses, tried to raid an exhibition to be
held in honor of the Tin Dan goddess,
and in which there were many valuable
decorations. Soldiers on guard opened
lire on the robbers, and a fight ensued.
The result was one of the marauders
was captured, while the rest made their
escape. When all was over the vil
lagers thought peace bail been restored,
and held no fear that the robbers would
return. They enjoyed the entertain
ment as usual, but on the following
night several places on the roof of a
temporary theater, whicii formed a part
of the amusements, were siren on fire.
The Haines spread rapidly, and soon
bamboo was falling from the roof. Some
of the audience were knocked down by
flaming rafters and badly burned before
they could escape. Those who got out
could not go home on account of the
solid mass of people in the streets, and
they took refuge in another neighboring
temple. This at last caught tire aiso,
and the scene was an awful one. The
door did not afford a sufficient means of
egress and large numbers were/oasted
alive. Altogether over 1.000 lives were
lost, including those who were burned
in the theater. The greater part of the
bodies were so horribly burned that
identification was impossible. The Chi
nese are very particular about funeral
honors to relatives, but in this case rela
tives of the dead refused to move them,
and so the ruins were tilled with black
ened and decayed remains, from which
an intolerable stench arose. Over 700
coffins were sent from Canton by Chi
nese charitable societies in order that
proper burial might be given the nead.
Two hundred and eighty houses in the
village were burned.
Britons Find the Khedive a Very
Stubborn Fellow.
London, Jan. 24.— The latest dispatch
from Cairo states that the hostility of
the khedive toward England shows no
signs of abating. In answering the
threat uttered by Lord Cromer to
the effect that a complete change of re
gime might be necessary in the event
of resistance of British authority, the
khedive replied that ho only yielded to
force. The khedive has been strength
ened by his attitude of antagonism to

deputations have addressed the kuedive

Much Speculation in Wash
ington Concerning La
mar's Successor.
Lakewood, N. J., Jan. 24.—Presi
dent-elect Cleveland and ex-Secretary
of State Thomas F. Bayard spent sev
eral" hours this morning in cabinet
making at the Cleveland cottage,
after which they joined Mrs. Cleve
land and Mrs. Bayard in a two
hours' sleigh ride. It was expected
that ex-Secretary Whitney would join
the party this afternoon, but he did not
arrive. Several members of his family,
however, came down on the afternoon
train, and from one of them it was
learned that Mr. Whitney would be here
Wednesday. Mr. Cleveland and Mr.
Bayard were closeted this afternoon in
Mr. Cleveland's private study and de
nied themselves to reporters. It is said
that Mr. Bayard is to have the state
portfolio again and Senator Carlisle
will be secretary of the treasury. The
only other member thus far known to
have been selected for Mr. Cleveland's
cabinet is Mr. Lamont, who is booked
for secretary of the navy. From
a most reliable source comes the
information that National Chairman
William Ilarrity, of Pennsylvania, has
been telegraphed for, and that he is to
be tendered the postmaster generalship.
Mr. Carlisle, who was expected here to
night to assist Mrr Cleveland, did not
arrive. Mr. Cleveland lias not deter
mined what steps to take in regard to
Mr. Lamar's funeral.
Tonight a number of politicians who
claim to be in touch with Mr. Cleveland
arranged this slate: Secretary of
state, T. F. Bayard, ot Delaware;
treasury, J. G. Carlisle, of Kentucky;
war, P. A. Collins, of Massachusetts;
navy, Daniel S. Lamont, New York;
interior, E. C. Wall. Wisconsin; post
master general, William F. Ilarrity, '
Pennsylvania; attorney general, John
Randolph Tucker, of Virginia; agri
culture, Hugh Wallace, of Washington.
Hunt Have Tried Men.
New York, Jan. 24.— The Press this
morning, in speaking of the visit of
Hon. Thomas F. Bayard to the presi
dent-elect at Lakewood, says: Some of
Mr. Cleveland's friends were surprised
to hear that he had summoned his
former secretary of state, Thomas F.
Bayard, of Delaware, to Lakewood
yesterday, and that Mr. Bayard
was likely to be the secretary
of state in the next cabinet.
The Press has high authority for the
statement that Mr. Cleveland practi
cally decided to make this appointment
before inviting Mr. Bayard to Lake
wood. A reporter last night asked an
ardent adherent of the president-elect,
one who has held confidential relations
with him. whether Mr. Bayard had
sought the office. Mr. Cleveland's
friend said:
"No, not any more than he did in
1885. But there are excellent reasons
why he should be made secretary of
state. It must be remembered,'.! con
tinued the president-elect's friend,
"that the president-elect looks upon the
reformation of the tariff system as the
most important work entrusted to him.
If the president-elect is to have
time and opportunity to carry out
this difficult work, he and his friends
both recognize that tried men must
relieve him of the details and especially
of those foreign complications that
arise to trouble most every ad
ministration. One of the arrangements
put forward in favor of Mr. Bayard's
reappointment to his old post is that the
questions now important in foreign af
fairs are almost identical with those that
came to the frontduring Mr.Cleveland's
former administration. Mr. Bayard
would be prepared to enter upon" his
work without any necessity for the de
lay inseparable from the choice of a
new secretary."
Much Speculation as to President
Harrison's Purpose.
Washington, Jan. 24.— Speculation
is already rife over the succession of
Justice Lamar on the supreme bench.
The particular person who will
be chosen is not considered so
much as the question whether
President Harrison will make a nomi
nation to fill* the vacancy or leave
the matter open for President Cleve
land's action. "It Is certain, in viewof
the attitude of certain Democratic sen
ators toward the nomination of Mr. Mc-
Comas to be judge of tne court of the
District of Columbia, that a nomination
by President Harrison would be antag
onized to the end of the session, and
defeated if possible. In view of that
fact it is possible the president
will not care to provoke a bitter
controversy aud will take no action.
Should he decide to make a nomination,
the probabilities are that a member of
the United States judiciary, a member
of Justice Lamar's old circuit, will be
honored by Uie appointment. This cir
cuit embraces Alabama, Georgia, Flor
ida. Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
' Chicago, Jan. 24.— At an informal
conference of Chicago lawyers today, at
which the question of filling the su
preme court vacancy caused bj the
death of Justice Lamar was discussed,
Alexander Sullivan made a suggestion*
that commended itself as an equitable
mode of providing for ex-presidents in
a dignified way when they possess the
required legal attainments. ft was
that at least a majority of
the senators petition President
Harrison to resign, tlint Vice President
Morton, who, the country, knows, would
make a dignified, safe and patriotic
president, nominate Gen. Harrison to
the supreme bench. Harrison's recog
nized uosition as a lawyer would make
the appointment tit strictly on its merits,
while it would furnish the president
with hard work, the best solace in
his domestic grief, and make it unneces
sary for him to return to his desolate
Indiana home. The suggestion was
received with favor, because it would
provide a becoming position without the
obnoxious feature of being a sinecure
for an- ex-president ai:d at the same
time give to the country a superbly,
equipped supreme court judge. $

Olympia, Wash., Jan. 24.— Two bal
lots for United States senator were
taken today. There was no change.
The vote stood: Allen, 51; Turner, 25;
Griggs, 27; Teats, 9. A message was
sent President Harrison and Secretary
of State Foster today, calling attention
to the nomination of Frederick J. Grant,
of Seattle, for envoy extraordinary and
minister plenipotentiary to Bolivia
Dec. 22 last. The message then refers
to the haste made in the confirmation of
the appointment by the senate in order
that Grant might enter upon his duties
before Jan. 4. The telegram goes on to
relate how Grant, instead of hastening
to Bolivia, is at Olympia, and deplores
the unusual spectacle of a diplomatic
representative of the government acting
as manager in a senatorial contest. The
message closes as follows:
"You are looked upon as the model
chief executive of the nation, and have
it in your power to stop such scandalous
proceedings. Will you do it, and save
the Kepublican party in this state from
total disruption."
The senate today unanimously passed
the anti-Pinkerton bill, which was ve
toed some time ago by the governor.
Surprising Strength Developed by
a New Man.
Topeka, Kan., Jan. 24.— The legis
lature complied with the law requiring
that a ballot for United States senator
be taken today. The Kepublican liouse,
by agreement with the Populists, had
the first roll call, which resulted as fol
lows: Joseph W. Ady (Ken.), caucus
nominee, 02; B. W. Perkins, 1: Ed
Carroll (Dem.). 1; Ed O'Brien
(Dem.), 2. Messrs. Rosenthal arid
Cham (Dem.) votod for O'Brien, and
Meagher (Dem.) for Carroll. In the
senate the vote was: Ady (Rep.), 15;
John W. Martin (Fusion Dem.), (J; Mc-
Cleverty (Fusion Dem.), 1; King (Pop.),
1; Doster (Pop.). 10; Breideuthal (Pop.),
C. In the Populist house the vote was:
Breideuthal, 17; Doster, 13; Coburn, 11;
Martin, !»; King. 3; scattering, 14. All
the candidates are Populists.
Tlie result of the balloting gives no
indication as to what the end will be.
Ady will, of course, stay in tho race
until the Republican policy dictates the
abandonment of a Republican candi
date, when there will be a break-up,
and that element will be at sea until a
Democrat is taken up. In the Populist
house Martin had undoubtedly the
most strength, although he was "given
less votes than either Briedenthal or
Doster. As an illustration of this
Speaker Dunsmore, an avowed Martin
man, voted for ex-Gov. Robinson. Other
equally strong Martin supportes also
scattered their votes. This was in pur
suance with the policy of Martin's wait
ing until his opponents in tiie Populist
forces become willing to accept him in
preference to a Democrat for the other
wing of the party.
A boom for Coburn, a Populist mem
ber from Burton county, disturbs the
situation somewhat. He had not been a
possibility till today, and the strength
that he developed mystifies the other
candidates. Many who voted for
him did so in order to scatter their
votes, but the fact that so many picked
on him gave him a position
in the field which may destroy some
well-laid plans. Interest centers in the
joint convention tomorrow, when the
light will shape itself. the end is not
looked for for several days. Tiie Re
publicans continue to regard B. P.

view that he had been defeated by pol
iticians, who had kept Republicans away
from joint ballot each day in the house
so he could not get the full party vote.

MADISON, Wis.. Jan. 21.— The consti
tutional provision making it compulsory
on the legislature to vote for United
States senator Jan. 24 was complied
with at 5 o'clock this afternoon by both
houses of the legislature. At yester
day's caucus of the Democrats a resolu
tion was passed pledging each member
to vote today for some Democrat from
their district other than the three candi
dates who are now before the caucus.
In the assembly John C. Spooner re
ceived the full Republican strength— 42
votes— and 7in the senate. The Demo
crats voted for some friend whom they
desired to honor— each name being dif
ferent. Tomorrow the houses will meet
in joint session. The journals of this
afternoon's session will be read, and
a joint ballot will be taken for United
States senator. The same tactics will
be followed as at today's session, and
this plau will continue until the caucus
makes a selection. The Democratic
caucus met at '■', o'clock this afternoon. -
The seventeenth ballot was then taken
and resulted: Mitchell, 81; Knight, 19;
Bragg, 29. The twenty-second ballot
was the same, and an adjournment was
taken until 8 o'clock tonight. One of
the members created some merriment
when tho nineteenth ballot was taken
by voting for John L. Sullivan, after
wards explaining tiiat he meant John
L. Mitchell. Balloting was resumed at
o'clock and the twenty-third ballot re
sulted: Mitchell, 30, Mahonev and
Phalen being absent; Brags, 29: Knight,
19, Senator Kennedy being absent. The
caucus then adjourned until 10:30 to
morrow morning.

The only feature of interest -In the
caucus today was that centered 4ibout
Assemblyman Blenski. When the Mil
waukee Inlander's name was called this
afternoon everybody's ears were
strained for the answer. He had been
sat down upon by the Mitchell forces,
by a delegation of his countrymen and
by a number of priests, but he was ob
durate and fairly shouted the name of
Gen. Bragg. The masterful coup of the
Bragg managers in breaking the Mil
waukee congressman's home dele
gation had been no tempo
rary victory. They had evidently
clinched tho grip on Blenski. Lieut
Gov. Jones, an enthusiastic Bragg fol
lower, was intrusted with the mission of
keeping Blenski in line, and never left
his side. The Rev. Fathers Gulski and
Grucza, of Milwaukee, who responded
to a dozen telegrams dispatched last
night, gained admission to'the caucus,
though they were not, under the rules,
entitled to the privilege, and the spec
tacle of the priests participating in the
caucus is disapproved by the Bragg fol
The only change in the six ballots
taken this afternoon was an apparent,
though not actual, gain of one vote for
Mitchell, made possible by the return
of Assemblyman Edmonds. There is a
dark horse sentiment prevalent tonight,
and the names of Attorney General
O'Connor, John Johnson, E. ('.Wall
and Judge Jenkins are mostly men
tioned in this connection.

Bismarck, N. D., Jan. 24.— The twen
ty-first ballot for United States senator
resulted as follows: Casey, 13; Worst,
7; Roach, 22; Muir, 12; Anderson, 8;
Smith, 13; Kingman, 11; Walsh, 1; A.
Johnson, 4. There was a rumor this
morning that Republicans-would vote
for Benton, Democrat, today, but it
proved unfounded. A bill to increase
the salaries of the district judges from
$3,000 to 14,000 accounts for the presence
of the various district judges in this
city. It is doubtful if the bill will meet
with favor. The house today by a de
cided majority killed the resolution
in favor of the anti-option bill which
passed early in tlie session and was re
called. The official organ of the Farm
ers' Alliance erne out against it this
week aud declared it to be a scheme of
the millers, considered a worse enemy
of the farmer than the Eastern boards of
traile. Among other bills today is the
old "boodle car" measure, making the
killing of stock by railroad companies
prima facie evidence of the neglect and
liability of a railroad company.
Tonight's action of the Democrats in

more conciliatory feeling among the
Republicans, and talk of a caucus is re

twenty-three Democrats in the legis
lature, reads as follows:

Pierre, S. D.. Jan. 24.— Two bills
were introduced ln the house today
creating the ollice of commissioner of
immigration, one of which attached it
to the olliee of school land commissioner
and the other to the board of agricult
ure. Petitions are pouring in protest
ing against proposed legislation to add j
gasoline to the oils requiring inspection,
but the reasons tor the petitions are not
so apparent. Railroad legislation took
up the greater portion of the time of tha
senate, and an animated an earnest de
bate was indulged in.
At 3 o'clock the senate went Into com
mittee of the whole to consider the bill
of Senator Doliard, providing that rail
roads shall pay for losses caused by lira
from engines, for the avoid able killing
of stock, and assessing double damages
in case they refuse to pay the loss with
in thirty days from loss. Senator
Homer moved that when the committee
rise to recommend the indefinite post*
pondinentof the bill. The bill in ques
tion is patterned after the lowa law, but
somewhat more drastic so far as double
damages are concerned. In the discus-'
sion the whole subject of railroad legis
lation was gone over, and in almost
every speech the sentiment was ex
pressed that there was no desire on the
part of themselves or constituents to
enact any laws that would tend to in
jur" railroad property or to discriminate
against railroads, but it was desired to
have obscure clauses in our law con
strued or made more plain. Naturally,
there is great diversity of opinion as to
what measures are discriminating and
what are not.
The committee reported in favor of
indefinite postponement, and then the
report was adopted. Koll call was de
manded on the vote on the adoption of
the report, and the result was thirty af-.
Urinative an 1 eleven negative votes,
with two members absent. This is sup
posed to be a test vote in the senate on
radical railroad legislation and indicates
that at least two-third of that body are
not witling to discriminate against rail
roads. It is a iso known that some of those
voting against Indefinite postponement
did so because they wanted the bill
more fully considered and not because
they were favorable toall the provisions
of this particular measure.
In the house a resolution was intro
duced calling for the appointment of a
special committee togo to Chicago to
investigate the matter of the world's
fair and to inspect the South Dakota
building, but, atter au animated discus
sion of two hours, the resolution was
made a special order for 3 o'clock to
morrow, when more fun is anticipated,
for there is a bitter contest as to the
amount to appropriate for the state ex*
