Total of Fatalities in the Sunshine
Mine Disaster Given in the
First Reports.
INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 4. — Two
frightful explosions of natural gas oc
curred in Broad Ripple, a suburb six
miles north of here this morning, at
10 o'clock. Five are known to have
been killed, and the seriously injured
will number between twenty and
thirty. The business part of the town
took fire, and the largest buildings
were destroyed. The city of Indian
apolis was called on for help and sent
engines and doctors. The first explo
sion occurred in J. L. Watts drug
store, from unknown causes. Five
were injured there, and the building
was set on fire. Across the street was
the Odd Fellows hall, underneath
which was Pious Gresh's grocery store.
Seeing that the fire was spreading,
Gresh and twenty men were removing
his stock of groceries, when a crashing
explosion occurred in this building.
The walls were blown out, the upper
I floor fell in on the men. Gresh and
Jacob Darling, a painter, were taken
out dead. The others in the building
I were badly injured, several of them
probably fatally. Nearly every one of
them suffered a broken leg or arm.
The fire spread from the Odd Fellows'
hall, and the drug store ruins in every
direction. Five buildings were on fire
at once, and were doomed before help
could be attempted. The entire com
munity turned out and there was work
for all to do in rescuing the injured,
now threatened with danger of death
by fire. Hurried calls for help were
stnt to the city. The hospital and dis
pensary doctors took the first Ripple
car, and the fire department loaded an
engine on a Monon fiat car and left
for the scene. The fire was under con
trol at noon, with five business houses
destroyed. The dead:
" CHARLES YOUNT, Indianapolis.
JACOB DARLING, Broad Ripple.
PIUS GRESHE, grooeryinan, Broad Ripple.
HENRY ERNEST, laborer. Broad Ripple.
TWO UNIDENTIFIED dead, one supposed
to be John Porter, a laborer.

I out Jacob Cruse, sixty-seven years oA
caught under piece of flying timber, supposed
internal injuries; Harvey Dugan, shoulder
!pi ed by broken fragments of wood face
ous John Doaks, back injured seriously.
At 2-30 it was reported that seven
dead bodies had been recovered from
the ruins. Of these only three had
been positively identified. It Is thought
at least the remains of two :vore may
be in the debris. It is «uppOS*d [that
natural gas had accumulated in \ att s
cellar, and that some one ner.t in tlw
dark room with a light *ni a terrible
explosion followed. It shattered the
building and injured all the occupants.
Every house in the suburbs was
shaken and farmers two miles nortn
of Broad Ripple felt the concussion
and hurried to the scene. Tne .iuslg
fng was a two-story white f ram- and
caught fire from the explosion. Peo
ple ran from their homes and the hand
fire apparatus was hurriedly dragged
to the burning building. There was no
water supply at hand and hose was
laid in the direction of White River.
But the hose would not reach to the
stream, and a large crowd of persons
stood helpless as they watched the
building burn. Women ran in the
street drying and wringing their
hands The men who went to the res
cue found a fierce fire as well as heavy
debris in their course. Their hands
were burned and they almost suffo
cated from the heat, but they worked
heroically to remove the timbers and
debris under which they knew tneir
neighbors were buried. The Odd Fel
lows building was also a wooden struc
ture and it was a seething mass of
fire before the first man was rescued.
The work of rescue was slow and it
v\as well on into the afternoon before
the fast body was taken out. The
nionev loss will likely not amount to
more 'than $10,000. All of the build
ings destroyed were wooden ones.
Only Twelve Killed by tlie Sunshine
Mine Explosion.
4 _No additional bodies have been re
covered from the Sunshine mine, where
twelve men were killed last night by
an explosion. The men were prepar
ing to leave the mine on the day shift
when the disaster occurred. A shot
had been fired, and instead of its being
a direct explosion it was what in min
ers' parlance is called a "blow-out,"
that is, the powder created a flame
which shot backward and caught the
dust that had accumulated in the
chamber, instead of dislodging the
seam of coal intended. At the time
of the explosion there was a barrel of
gunpowder in the chamber which
ignited and aided the disaster which
would have occurred through the coal
dust explosion alone. The Sunshine,
where the disaster occurred, Is a pecu
liar coal, a combination of anthracite
and bitumen, and there Is a belief that
the gathering of the coal dust in the
chamber was due to excessive exhaus
tion caused by a desire to empty the
chamber too auickly. In the whole
property there are fifty to fifty-five
men employed. The single chamber
wher^ the men were killed was the
only one damaged. Two hours after
the* explosion occurred the bodies of
the dead men were all brought to the
As the bodies lay, the faces covered
with the black dust and their hair
burned away, they were practically
unrecognizable. The force of the ex
plosion had completely crushed each
bone in the twelve bodies, so that the
remains were merely a shapeless mass
of flesh and bone, and as easily rolled
into a knot as though composed of
yarn. Three of the dead miners, Louis
and John Audvetta and John Jonini,
leave families.
This mine is the oldest of the Spring
Gulch group. Two entries below the
one in which the accident occurred
have been worked out. These two cov
ered a distance of 600 feet above the
level of the creek. The slope which
proved the death trap of the twelve
men is usually, the working place of
forty toilers. Yesterday the main force
were employed in entry No. 4, two
hundred and fifty feet above the level
where the explosion occurred. The ex
plosion broke away the stopage from
the lower worked-out slopes, and the
two working slopes were at once filled
with the deadly black damp. An idea
of the force of the explosion can be
had when it Is seen that the timbers,
many twenty-two inches in diameter,
were twisted and broken a» though
mere pipe stems. ■-
Twoi Men and a Horse Blown Into
Small Bits.
MONONGAHELA, Pa., Sept. 4.— By
an explosion of nitroglycerine, early
this morning, two men and a horse
uere killed, a buggy completely de
molished and the bridge across the
Monongahela river so badly damage-1
that it will have to be abandoned until
repaired. Windows In the vicinity
were broken and the residents for
miles awakened by the concussion. One
of the men is believed to be Charles
P. Rankin, formerly superintendent of
the Watson Mining company. It !s
supposed that the men had the glycer
ine in a buggy, and that a sudden jolt
caused the explosion.
Spanish Anarchist Fires Upon Two
Police Chiefs.
BARCELONA, Sept. 4.— The man ar
rested here for shooting two police
officials is a native of this city, but he
belongs to the Paris group of anar
chists. His name is given as Barril.
As two police chiefs were leaving the
circus here last evening, they were
stopped and abused by the prisoner.
Barril then fired at the officers with a
revolver, wounding Chief Portias in the
shoulder and chest and wounding As
sistant Chief Enridzero in the shoul
der. Both of the chiefs pursued Barril,
who sought refuge in a wine shop,
where, before he was taken into cus
tody, he shot and severely wounded
a waiter.
Chief Portias is convinced that Bar
ril is an accomplice of Micheio Angol
lilo, the recently executed anarchist.
Barril, when questioned regarding his
attempt to assassinate the two chiefs,
admitted he was an anarchist, and
that he had been expelled from Spain
in 1895 for hissing the Spanish flag. H'
then went to London, remaining there
some time and subsequently resided
in Brussels. He returned to Barcelona
on Aug. 16 last. The prisoner, who is
now- confined in the fortress of Mount
Junich, will be tried by courtmartial
within the near future. When Barril
wa searched an important document
of a compromising nature was found
upon his person.

BOTTO I \ 1)1 :u ARREST.
New Chapter in a Louisville Sovial
NEW YORK, Sept. 4.— William Bot
to, of Louisville, was arrested today
charged with uttering a worthless
check for $35 on the Louisville Trust
company, and passing it upon Frank
C. Benjamin, of Philadelphia. Bottc
was held to await a requisition from
Philadelphia. The police say this bad
check is one of a series passed by Bot
to in neighboring cities.
Botto acquired notoriety by marry
ing the wealthy widow of Capt. Wil
j liam Irwin, of Louisville. During his
life time Capt. Irwin was president of
the Louisville & Indiana Ferry com
pany, and was also prominent in many
other corporations. He was an ac
credited millionaire and on his death
his widow and a twenty-one-year-old
son, Gay, came into possession of the
vast estate. Gay Irwin was a sport
ing man and kept a string of racing
horses. Young Irwin and Botto be
came acquainted, and having tastes in
common, soon became fast friends.
| Botto is the son of a Louisville mer
chant and was a prominent figure in
Louisville society. Early in July, Bot
j to, then twenty years old, was mar
ried to Mrs. Irwin. who was fifty-two
years old. Louisville was shocked at
the disparity in the ages of the pair.

Mrs. Henry Younghans Tells a Story
of Suffering and How She Was
From the Evening News, Detroit, Mich.
Mrs. Henry Younghans, of Detroit,
Mich., who resides at 1003 Grand River
Avenue, said: "Ever since our last
little one came I was an invalid. For
years I have had: the most painful
experience and would have to lie down
most of the time. After the last baby
was born I was upable to attend to
my housework. I could hardly stand
up and had dizzy ?pells. I Avanted to
sleep all the time and was treated by
several of the best physicians. I would
have the moat fearful cramp, for
which hot applications were used. I
used these h;ot applications until I
blistered myself severely.
"Before our child was born I had
been a strong, healthy woman and
was scarcely ever sick. After he was
born I grew weak and thin, and re
ceived scarcely any help from the
medicine left by the doctors. They
said I was not properly cared for and
that the baby was too strong for me.
My back seemed to be breaking and 1
was scarcely ever without a severe
headache. Could not tell you how
many different prescriptions I have
taken, but every doctor had a differ
ent plan of treating my case. I wore
supports and laid for weeks with my
limbs elevated, but without avail. One
day my husband suggested that I try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple, as he had read several articles
in the paper about women who had
been helped by" them. I was discour
! aged and thought I must always be
j an invalidi but said I would try them
after I had taken the bottle of medi
cine I was then using.
"A few days after he brought me
in a box and asked me to give them a
trial. I started taking Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People that day
j and Dut the. oth£r medicine away.
• thinking it w^tild iplease him if I tried
■ the pills. Before I.had taken one box
i I felt better. 2ny jtiusband noticed the
improvement «a-n«|{ bought two more
boxes. I kep£ bif^using them until I
had taken four boxes, and I was en
tirely cured.
"I keep them in "the house now and
use them occasionally, as they are a
great help to u alPwomen. You would
not have kn§svn;jme two years ago.
What I am today is owing to Dr. Will
iams' Pink Pitls for Pale People."

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People are not a' patent medicine In
the sense that name implies. They
were first compounded as a prescrip
tion and used as such In general prac
tice by an eminent physician. So
great was their efficacy that it was
deemed wise to place them within the
reach of all. They are now manu
factured by the Dr. Williams' Medicine
Company, Schenectady, N. V., and are
sold in boxes (never In loose form by
the dozen or hundred, and the public
are cautioned against numerous imi
tations sold in this shape) at 50 cents
a box, or six boxes for $2.50, and may
be had of all druggists or direct by

Mr. Towne and the Late Candidate
at Dennison.
DENNISON, 10., Sept. 4.— Hon. Wil
liam J. Bryan and Congressman C. A.
Towne, of Duluth, were here today j
and spoke to large and enthusiastic j
audiences. E. A. Plummer, fusion i
candidate for lieutenant governor, and j
Judge L. G. Kinne, fusion candidate
for supreme judge, were both present.
Hon. Mike Healy, of Fort Dodge, pre- •
sided over the meeting. Mr. Bryan was
given an ovation. He said the silver
question was the great issue of this
campaign in Ohio and lowa and he
ridiculed the monetary commission
sent out by McKinley and said other
nations would do nothing unless scar
ed into it by the gains made by the
silver party this fall. He also said that
the present system of national taxa
tion was unjust and favored the re
moval of all international revenue
taxes and tariff taxes and the sub
stitution of the income tax. He said
the Income tax had been constitutional
for a hundred years and had been so j
until a judge changed his mind. He
also said that as far as he could learn,
affairs in lowa were in such bad shape
that any change would be for the bet
Mr. Towne spoke entirely on the |
money question. He said that if we i
had now had free silver, wheat would ]
be selling for two dollars and a half j
per bushel. People came from all West- |
crn lowa and the crowd was immense
and very enthusiastic.
Rockefeller Gogebic Mines Are to Ue
CLEVELAND, 0., Sept. 4.—Repre

! John D. Rockefeller are said to have
| been conferring here yesterday and to
day, regarding- the lea.se to the former
of several big Rockefeller iron ere
mines on the Gogebic range. If the
leases are executed it is declared by
iron men Carnegie will be placed in
the same relation to what ace called
old range mines that the arrangements
of last summer placed him in with re
spect to new range. It will give him
all the ore he needs for use at his
works at practically his own price,
and the effect upon the iron and steel
business will be marked. Messrs.
Oliver and Gate could not be seen to

Says He Did Not Assist in Denounc
ing- Cleveland.
LTNCHBURG, Va., Sept. 4.— The
News will tomorrow print a letter
from United States Senator John TV.
Daniel, replying to certain statements
made by Gov. O'Farrell in his recently
published letter. . In his letter Gov.
O'Farral says that Mr. Daniel offered
a resolution in the senate commending
Mr. Cleveland's course in connection
with the suppression of the Chicago
riots, and later was a member of the
committee on resolutions at the Cri
cago convention "when the committee
denounced Mr. Cleveland for doing the
very thing- for which Senator Daniel
has praised him."
The senator denies that he was a
member of the committee on resolu
tions committee at Chicago, or that
there was a plank in the platform de
j nouncing Mr. Cleveland. He declares
that the clause in the Chicago plank
denouncing arbitrary interference by
federal authorities in local municipal
affairs was not regarded by Mr. Cleve
land's friends in the convention as
having reference to his action during
j the Chicago riot.
"In fact," says the senator, "I am
informed that all reference to Mr.
Cleveland was expressly disclaimed
■ and Mr. Altgeld, to whom the plank
| has been imputed, was not a member
I of the committee and had nothing to
do with it."
The senator continued: "What does
the government think of a public of
j ficer who, during many terms of ser
i vice in congress, votes every time for
free and unlimited silver coinage at
16 to 1, and becomes governor through
a canvas in which he boasts of his ar-
J dent devotion to the principle and of
I having voted for it many times 17 to 1,
j and who, after he is in office, heaps
denunciation on those who stand by
the doctrine which he often upheld
and declares that the idea with which
he was so long and notably identifid
is not Dmocratic, but born in Popuiis
tic council."

j Vanderbilt Party Arrives in Cliicaj?o
From Alaska.
CHICAGO, Sept. 3.— There was a stir of ex
citement in the Auditorium Annex hotel last
! evening as a party of ten. escorted by a num
i ber of bell boys, hurried through the Mich
igan avenue entrance to the corridor. The
' whispered comment. "Those are the Vand?r
--\ bilt girls, and that is Sloane and Twombly,"
| revealed their identity. Marching past the
j crowd of guests, the entire party lined up in
! front of the hotel desk, and in a few mosienta
] Flats C, D and F were set aside for tha af- i
| fluent guests at the rate of $90 per day.
When the same ten started toward the ele
! vator they left the following names on the
i hotel book, smeared and blotted with much
ink: "Mr. and Mr=. 11. MrK. Twombly, "Miss.
Twombly. Mr. and Mrs. William D. Sloane,
Miss Sloane, Miss L. V. Sloane. Mrs. E. J.

Once in charge of the boll boya the party
was shown to the $90 per day apartments.
After removing the stains of travel the en
tire party, minus the maids, entered the cafe
of the Annex.
On leaving the cafe Mr. Sloane was ocn
fronted by a visitor. "I'm in a deuced hur
ry," he said, with a smile. "I've got to take
all this party of gold diggers to the opera and
I can talk for Just sixty jveconds."
All the feminine members of the party
crowded around Mr. Sloane. anxious to' tell
they had really dug gold. Mr. Twombly hur
ried away for a few minutes to talk business
with a Chicago banker.
"I'm going to talk at the rate of sixty miles
an hour " continued Mr. Sloane. "We have

CHICAGO, Sept. 3.— The Times-Herald this
morning says: Any man who wants a wife
is respectfully requested to go to Jackson
park tomorrow night. There is to be a mat
rimonial picnic there, and the promoters and
their guests will ride from downtown in a
special train of cable cars. The cars will be
conducted by young women, who are in need
of husbands. They will listen U proposals

while ringing up fares. They will Join the
picnic at the end of the run, and if they
have good luck they will not have a thing
to do on the return trip but act pleasant and
let the man who has been accepted pay the
There will bo an official phrenologist at the
picnic. He will indicate, after Investigating
cranial bumps and hollows, who should be
proposed to and to whom should go the honor
of asking the lady to be his wife. No pro
miscuous matches will be allowed. Bumps
will decide everything.
It is distinctly understood that this mat
rimonial cable car party has only one ob
ject. It is designed fexpressly for the pur
pose of making matches— the kind usually
made in Heaven, not those with sulphur on
one end. AH unmarried men, without regard
for previous condition of servitude, are In
vited, and it is to be their own fault if they
do not pick up some coy young thing who is
willing to darn socks, build the fire and ride
on the front seat of the tandem.
The promoters are sure several matches
will be made. In a neat "Invite" it is given
out that many girls will be asked to wed.
Acquaintances on either side is not neces
sary, for the club argues that marriage is
only an Introduction, anyhow, and that while
-persons may foolishly think they are ac
quainted with each other before they marry
it is all a mistake. So, if you need a wife
and don't see one, go to the picnic and call
for her.
Another feature on the invitation card is
not quite clear. It may be misleading. There
Is a clause which says: "Those who went
last year long for another." The club evi
dently had a picnic. Whether those who
went want another picnic or whether those
who picked up wives are referred to Is not
given out.
