Kepubltran Caarna Throwa Oat Ho
Comaa' Bill Against Grrymander
National Capital Items.
Washington Citt, June 17. Allison ad
dressed the senate yesterday on the silver
question. He said the house bill (all other
bills and amendments having passed
away), was substantially the bill proposed
by the finance committee when it made
its report originally, with the exception
that the house had added to it a provision
for redeeming in bullion and a provision
relating to free coinage when silver
should come to par. These were the two
vital amendments made to the bill as it
was originally reported from tho finance
committee. As he bad assented to the
original report, he expected to vote for
that report, substantially, as he believed
it was the wisest and, on the whole, the
best solution of the question.
Hia Opinion of the Amendment.
The bill having been referred to the
finance committee for the second time,
the committee had reported back two
amendments, one striking out the section
of the bill relating to the free coinage
after a certain point, and one inserting a
provision that the act shall terminate at
the expiration of ten yeara. He would
support the amendment to strike out the
free coinage sectiou, but he would not
support the amendment limiting the oper
ation of the bill to ten years. He regarded
that limitation as unnecessary and as im
perilling the efficiency of the bill. He did
not believe that the bill would last ten
years, or anything approaching ten years.
He Favors Holding the Bullion.
There wre people who believed that the
coined dollars in the treasury were useless
and that it would be a wise public policy
to cease that coinage. He for onediil
not share that belief. He believed Jhat it
was just as well to continue them to the
ntraoet limit of 4,0iUKi) a month. But
there was a large public opinion against
that view, and therefore he contended
that the bullion should be left in the
treasury uncoined. He believed that
sooner or later, and he believed very soon,
the Uuitrtl States would have to change
the numberof grains of silver in the dol
lar and therefore the dollars now coined
would be re-coined.
Ioea Not demonetize Silver.
ne was willing to go on as they were go
ing on now (tentatively, as it were!, with a
provision for the use of silver, pending ne
gotiations that ought to lie had for the
restoration of silver on some agreed rate
by the nations of the world. Enstis in
quired whether the prospect of an inter
national agreement for silver coinage
would be promoted by the pending law,
which would demonetize silver. Allison
replied that there was no demonetization
of silver proposed in the pending bilL Its
provison in that rsnpect was the same as
in the act of IbTH, except that the pending
measure provided for the monthly pur
chase of .vm.oou more of silver than the
maximum authorized by the act of IS 73.
A Colloquy with Vest.
Vet commented upon a remark of Alli
son as to the "new-born zeal-' of Derrfh
cratic senators in the cause of free coinage
of silver, and made a statement to show
that that had always been the Democratic
policy. He read a resolution which he had
offered in the senate in ISTa for the com
plete remonetization of silver, and which
had been, on Allison's motion and by the
vote of a Republican majority, referred to
the finance committee where it had been
buried beyond resurrection.

THE ADULTERATION OF FOOD.
A House Committee Oive Some Reaaona
tVhy It Should Ite Stopped.
Washington Citt, June 17. Paddock,
from the committee on agriculture and
forestry, made a report to the senate' yes
terday on the pure food bill. The report
gives good reasons for imposing the exe
cution of the law upon the agricultural
department, and nays that it is estimated
by a leading trade journal of the
United States, that 2 per ceut. of
the entire food product of the country is
sophisticated. Taking the estimate of
l50,0W,nriu.(ai0 as the total value of the
food supply consumed in the United
States annually, there is, upon this basis
of estimation, fJO.UOo.OHO a year of fraudu
lent food products foisted upon consum
ers. The Farmers Are Complaining.
The committee says that the food pro
ducers' products are sophisticated and
nusoranaeu, ana tneir market tor a pure
food product restricted because of the sus
picion of fraud which discredits the pur
ify of the products subject to adulteration.
Both bouses of congress have been del
uged with petitions from the farmers' or
ganizations during -the present session,
praying for legislation which will compel
the manufacturers of hog products to con
form to the laws of commercial honesty.
They complain, and Justly, that the sale of
compound products under the name of the
genuine article is destroying a remunera
tive market for their hogs by displacing
millions of pounds of pure lard with arti
cles of a cheaper quality sold under the
Should Sell for AVhat They Are.
While eminent chemists are not agreed
that the lurd compounds are deleterious to
health, says the report, there can be no
dissent from the view that such articles
sheuld be sold under their rightful names
and marketed as compounds and not as
the simple products which they similato.
The farmers of the country who see their
prod acta lessened in value every year by
millions through sophistication and mis
branding and their tables assailed in turn
with fradulent manufactured food pro
ducts have every reason to complain that
they are robbed at every turn of the wheel.

BLAINE ON FREE SUGAR.
He Want the Latin American to Pay
Something for the Floon.
Augusta, Me., June 17 The U Ilowing
letter from Secretary Blaine was received
in this city yesterday by ex-Mayor Coney:
My Dkar Sir: I have your favor of the
11 tl inst. Yon are in error in sepposing
that I am opposed to angar heinf admit
ted free of duty. My objection inot to
free sugar, but to the proposed method of
making it free. If, in the pendli g tariff
bill, sugar is placed upon the fret list, we
give to certain countries a free iiu.rket for
tas.doij.ono of their products, while they are
not asked to open their market to the
free admission of a single dollar of Amer
Wanta a Condition Attached.
We ought to have, in exchange for free
sugar from certain countries, a f res mar
ket for breadstuff's and provisions besides
various fabrics from all parts of oiir coun
try." In short, we ought to secure, in re
turn for free sugar, a mctket for ft0,000,-
000 or 70,OoO,000 worth of our own pro
ducts. It will not require reciprocity
treaties to secure this great bo . The
tariff bill can contain all the necessary
conditions. The legislative pow r is able
to secure the desired end.
A Latin-American Itonania.
Within the last twenty years we have
given the countries south of us free ad
mission for nearly tfi),00l),000 vorth of
their products, without receiving a
penny's advantage in exchange. If sugar
be now made unconditionally free we shall
have given to the 1 Jttin-Aiiierict n conn
tries free admission for $150,01 0,000 of
their products. It is time, I think , to look
out for some reciprocal advantages, We
are a very rich nation, but not ricl. enough
to trade on this unequal basis.

New OkleaNS, La., June 17. 'Che antl
loterty campaign in this state may be said
to be very much in earnest. The support
ers of the lottery sent an address to East
Teliciana parish, where an electioi for the
legislature is pending, advising negroes
not to vote, declaring that the fig ht was a
Democratic one, and say in? that
the Democrats should be al
lowed to settle it. The address was
political dodge, as the lottery men
feared that the negroes in the parish
might be influenced to vote ant i lottery
by the white anti-lottery men. This ad
dress was intrusted to George Swayse,

Dcnbar, Pa., June 17. Thirty-one min
ers were killed yesterday by an explosion
of gaa in the coal mines at Hill farm,
owned by the Dunbar Furnace company,
and located one mile west of this place.
The explosion occurred at 10:30 o'clock in
the morning. The bodies of two of the
unfortunates were taken out. The others
are still entombed in the m:ne, where a
fierce fire is raging. There is little doubt
that all are dead. Desperate efforts are
in progress to clear the way to recover the
bodies, but so far without avail. A rescu
ing party of 100 men, headed by Mine In
spector Keigley, of this district, spent the
afternoon in the pit, but up until late last
night had been able to recover only two
bodies. These had died from the force of
the explosion and are badly burned. Their
features are distorted and.aMtigured and
they could only be recognized by their
How the Calamity Occurred.
Fifty seven miners were at work about
5,o feet from the mouth of the slope
when the explosion occurred. Xear the
Joint at which the heading started an air
hole had been drilled recently. Gas and
water hail accumulated in it. A miner,
named Patrick Kerwin, penetrated this
air hole, six inches in diameter, with his
pick, whereupon a strong stream of water
gushed out. Kerwin, alarmed, sounded
the danger signaL His assistant, Patrick
Hayes, started hurriedly for the main en
trance, and had scarcely moved when the
foul gas was ignited from his lamp. The
explosion that followed was terrible.
Thrilling Kaeape of Tneuty-Kix.
What' lit tie air there was in the place
drifted to the heading to the right of the
main entrance. The fire followed swiftly,
and liefore the thirty-one men conld be
alarmed, all hope of escape was shut off
by the flames. The twenty-six men em
ployed in the left heading were notified of
thedaugerin time to save their lives, al
though their escape was thrilling, and was
accompanied by the wildest confusion. At
a point near where the explosion occurred
the bodies of Daniel Sheiran. tire boss, and
David Hayes were found. They had evi
dently attempted to escape through the
Men Who Met Their Doom.
Following is a full list of the missing
miners: Joseph Brigner, Richard Brig

son), Pat Devlin, John Dclianney, John

The explosion was onp of the most dis
astrous and deadly in the history of the
coke regions. In the lieisenring disaster
in IhnS twenty three men lost their lives.
At Col. J. M. Reed's works at this place
two 3-pars earlier five men were killed,
while at the Youngstown works ,a year
later, some fourteen lives were lost. This
latest calamity has nnncrved the com
munity and the inhabitants are wild with
excitement. Thousands of people gathered
at the mouth of the mines. A m. mg them
were the parents, wives, children and
sweethearts of the unfortunates, and a
strong guard of police was necessary to
prevent many of them, mad with anguish,
from rushing into the deadly hole.
Pitiable Mchi at the Pit Mouth.
Wives, widowed by the horror, stood
about, illy clad and sore-footed, lulling to
sleep their balies in arms. Mothers wrung
their hands and cried aloud for their boys,
whlln children from 8 to 15 years of age
hurried alxiut, looking into the blackened
faces of I he escaped miners, in the hope of
finding their fathers or brothers. Their
suffering was pitiable, and while the au
thorities of the company were exerting all
their energies to recover the bodies, the
total absence of information regarding the
fate of the missing men made their dis
tress more severe, and moans and groans
went np nnconsciously from many in the
Reading the Saerament to the Cnacen.
Night never fell on a gloomier scene
than this. Men, women and children still
stood alxiut, hoping againat hope and
painfully, awfully silent. Just inside the
man -hole, holding In his hand a flickering
lamp, stood Father Malody with his
prayer-book in hand, reading the last sac
rament to the unmrn unfortunates.. He
was not disturbed by the excited, earnest
workmen, who rushed hither and thither
in their eudeavor to get at the lost. Ann
fulls of hay were carried in by the men
to close off all Ks.sible escape of the fresh
Given Vp All Hope.
At midnight last night the smoke and
gas from the right shaft poured up the
main exit, and after trials almost beyond
human endurance the rescuing party
gave up all hopes of ever recovering their
comrades, bodies from that entrance and
turned their attention to the Ferguson
mine, one and a half miles away. They
are now striving to penetrate from that
mine, but the flame and smoke balk every
effort. The universal and unwilling ver
dict from the old miners about the shaft
is that the entombed men have either been
killed outright by the explosion, or later
The Men Probably Suffocated.
The latter seems to be the more proba
ble, at least, in part, as soundings were
heard from the entombed men as late aa
1 o'clock yesterday afternoon. These grew
weaker and weaker, however, and half an
hour later even the moshopeful of the
willing rescuers could hear nothing.
Relief for the Sufferer.
The officers of the furnace company
have been notified of the disaster and the
authorities here haue been instructed to
do everything in their power to relieve
the listress of those who have suffered by
the calamity. The Scottdale Rolling
Mill Company has sent a force of men to
aid the rescuers and today they closed
down their .works and sent all their em
ployes. The loss by the explosion cannot
now be ascertained. It will be heavy,
however, and the owners are fearful that
the works will have to be abandoned.

considerable comment and anxiety. The
top appears to have beenut short off and
fallen into the crater below. Those
depths have never been penetrated by the
human eye. It is thought that the absenjav
of this old land mark may indicate further
demonstrations of a volcanic nature. ' Fire
has been long known to exist in the crater,
and the lava formation of valleys and

"May not the convulsion ""of ages past be

Loxdon, June-17. The funeral of Lady
Ely, the favorite lady in waiting of the
queen, took place yesterday. It is esti
mated that fully Vi.OHO persons were pres
ent at Kendal Green cemetery, where the
interment was made, many Americans
being among the number. Great disorder
followed the attempt of the people to se
cure a glimise of the proceedings, and it
was found necessary to invoke police rein
foreements to prevent the royal mourners
from being swept away by the onward
rush of the mob of sight-Beers. Before
order could be restored, however, consid
erable damage had been done to tomb
stones and other mortuary tributes.
Order of American Mechanic.
Chicago, June 17. Two thousand dele
gates to the council of the Junior Order
United American Mechanics arrived here
yesterday from Pittsburgh by sjiecial
train. The convention opened today. The
order is not a labor organization, but its
objects are to maintain and promote the
interests of Americans and shield them
from the depressing effects of foreign
competition: to assist them in obtaining
employment and encourage them in busi
ness; to establish a sick and general fund
and to aid in the maintenance of the public-school
system of the I'nited States; to
prevent secterian interference therewith
and uphold the reading of the Bible in
a Motea Month.
From Keokuk, la., Dcnim-rnt.
August, 1st 7, was A noted month. It
gave extreme heat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous to the
public health. Cases of colic, cholera
morbus and dianhoea were abundant and
there were numerous calls at the drug
stores for Cbambt-tlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. Druggists of
this city tell us that Ibis remedy has been
more frequently called for during the
past month than any other preparation,
and that it has proven a panacea for the
very worst rases. Chamberlain's Colic.
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is a mer
ilorious medicinal preparation for all
, summer complaints for which it is recom
mended, and grows in popularity to this
city aud vicinity. The sales are increase
ing rapidly and wonderful cures are re
ported. Hold by Harlz & Rahnsen.
