Tbe Sad Affair Occurred at the Chat bam County Coal Mines A Pitiful Scene -"Women and Children Cr ing Heard for 20 Miles. From the Greensboro Record, Dec, 19 A report, considered authentic, reaches us this p. m., that there was an explosion in tbe coal mines at Egypt this morning-, whereby forty three men were killed. Egypt is not a telegraph station and further particulars cannot be learned. It is on the G. F. & Y. V. Railway, not far from Ore Hill. LATEK. The following was sent us by con ductor W. G. Dodson, of the G. F. & Y. V., who passed there this p. m. on his run: "This a. m. between 8 and 9 o'clock, the coal mine at Cummock (formerly Egypt) blew up. Sixty miners went down to work early this morning and only nineteen were tatten out after the explosion. Mine is five or six hundred feet deep. There was a large quantity of dynamite in the mine. Cannot loarn the cause of disaster, probably tire-damp. A large force of men are at the shaft, trying to rescue the en tombed miners. 'There is little hope of taking out any of the men alive. Those who sue ceeded in escaping are badly burned, some fatally." STILL LATER. Gapt. Campbell passed Cumnock at 1 o'clock today and says the exact number killed was thirty-three. ANOTIIER ACCOUNT. The News and Observer prints a telegram from Sanford, N. C., regard ing the terrible explosion. It says: At 9 o'clock a. m. Thursday, shortly after a day force numbering sixty seven men had gone on duty at the Cumnock coal mines, 6 miles west of here, a terrible gas or Are damp explo sion occurred with fatal effect. Upon hearing the report the people of the village and relatives of the en tombed miners hastened to the scene, but for some time they were unable to gain any tidings from below. After pumping fresh air into the shafts for some time several miners were pre vailed upon to venture down and in vestigate. They found and brought out twenty -live men from slopes num ber 2 and 3. Five or six of them were badly wounded and some of them will prob ably die; others were slightly wound ed. A mule and two men were killed in slope number 2- After considerable delay the search ing party entered slope number 1, where they were greeted with a most horrible and ghastly sight. Dead men, fearfully mutilated, were found. Some of t hem were partly covered up with pieces of coal, timber and other debris. The searching party came up and reported what they had found. At 4 o'clock ten or twelve miners went down to bring up the dead bodies, but at last accounts none of tbe dead men had been rescued. It is believed that 43 men were kill ed. Their names are not obtainable at this writing. Several of them were negroes and foreigners and the rest natives of North Carolina. Several bad families living at Cumnock.Eight of the dead miners were from Penn sylvania and expected to return to that State tomorrow to visit their rel atives. A quantity of dynamite was in the mine and exploded, wrecking coalcafs and splitting missive pieces of timber nto kindling wood. Mothers, wives and sisters were around in the mines all day, wetping and wringing their hands with grief, expecting every minute to see the life less form of some loved one brought up. Excitement runs high. CAROLINA EXPANDING. Oar State Gets the Best of Viginia In the Boundary Dispute. Raleigh Press-Visitor. Dr. Watson, of Warren county, a member of the commission appointed by Gov. Carr to settle the boundary dispute between this State and Vir ginia, is in the city on a visit. Dr. Watson is just from the boundary linef where the commissions from the two States have been working jointly in locating tbe line. Dr. Watson reports very severe weather in tbe Eastern section of the State, where they have been engaged lately. The commission has located the line bordering the counties of Hertford, Northampton and Warren in JNortn Carolina, and iNotaway coun ty in Virginia. They are now running the line between Vance county, North Carolina, and Mecklenburg county. Virginia.So far the line has been loca ted for a distance of 80 miles: 30 more miles remain for the commission to go over.- Dr. Watson says North Carolina has got the best of the division so far. At the present rate the voting population of the State is being largely augment ed eacn day. Missouri Offers 1,000 Soldiers. St. Louis, Dec. 19. A meeting of the officers aud members of tbe First Infantry, Missouri National Guard, was neia xuesaay evening, as a re sult, Col. Edwi Boldorf, command lug, seui tu loiiuwing note to wasu ington: .. " - To His Excellency, the President of tbe United States: Sir: The First Regiment Infantry, National Guard of Missouri, is a firm believer in the Monroe doctrine; America, - North, south, n.ast ana west lor Americans, and its officers and men request their Colonel to inform you, sir, that at the nrst call to arms the First Missouri will respond 1,000 strong. Wants Both Conventions. St. Louis, Mo., Dec 17. A meeting was held at the office of the Business Men's League yesterday, at which it was finally determined to make a spe cial effort to obtain the Democratic National Convention io 1896. Signed pledges from five National Commit teemen were read, and oral promises were reported from four others. Sev eral, letters were also produced, non committal as to voting, but very friendly in character. A delegation will be sent to Washington to be pres ent at the meeting of the National Committee. - AN AGED WOMANARBE8TED. Tbe Wife ot Nathan Shores, of Yad kin County. The Tilden (Yadkin county) corres pondentof the Statesville Landmark writes to that paper as follows: Mr. C. G. Ct lvard, whose mill was burned some time ago, and who is re building, always thought that the fire that destroyed his mill was incendiary. Atilast the secret is out, and In conse quence heretof ire honored citizens are in t rouble. Mr. Col vard has been tracing this matter for some time but quiet'y, so other parties thought it had completely died away, when papers were issued for the arrest of an aged lady by the name of Mrs. Rhoda Shores, the wife of Nathan Shores, mother of Eii Shores, the latter the great liquo dealer of this neighbor hood. Mrs. Shores was triven a preliminary hearing and bound over to the Super ior court of Yadkin. In default of bond she was committed to jail. On Saturday she gave bond and was re leased until court. Eli, her son, it is thought, started to run away and got as far as the railroad and heard of his mother's trouble and returned to aid her. It is not thought that she did the act herself, as there is good evi dence as to others, and other arrests will be made as soon as possible. The cause of the burning is thought to be on account of sickness, as the mill pond covered several acres and consequently caused chills and fever for several miles around. But burning the mill had no effect on the health of the community, for since the burning the pond has been there and still re mains, and as the new mill is nearly completed, it is evident that the pond will remain for some time yet. CHRISTMAS AT BILTMORE. Many Vanderbilts to Help at tbe House Warming Mr. George Vanderbilt, says Town Topics, seems at last to see his way out of the woods. After years of work on the part of the quarrymeD, masons, plasterers, carpenters and ar chitects, he is to have a house to live in on his North Carolina estate a comfortable, snug little box to which he can ask a friend for a week's shoot- ine. with the distinct assurance that the friends can have a room and a bed all to himself. Christmas time is to see the formal opening of the house n the presence of a grand conclave or all the Vanderbilt clan. When Santa Claus makes his midnignt visit and tumbles down the multiplicity of chimneys, he will have his sleigh drawn by golden shod deer. Dasher and Prancer and Dunder and JbJixen will have their dainty little antlers so brilliant with gold that the Tarheel natives, seeing it pass overhead, will swear they saw a meteor. ne sleigh Is to be loaded dashboard high with Kohinoors. The holly berries are to be glorious rubies. Each branch of the Vanderbilt family will go from New York to Biltmore by a special train. THE WOMAN DOCTOR. She Passed Through Winston on Her Return Home. Mrs. May Bullock, the "cure all" lady physician, who claims Chicago as her home, passed through Winston last week. A Sbntinel representative met her at the; depot. She declined to give the number of cures she had made du ring her stay in Yadkin county. When asked for a statement she replied that she had nothing to say further than that if any one desired to learn any thing of her cures they could call on the people she had treated. She re ferred to Mr. Phillips, at x aoKinvine, and Mr. Wolf, at Tobaccoville. She said she had been in this section five weeks and was then on her return home. If Mrs. Bullock is not a "humbug" her general appearance is deceiving. She said to the reporter: "You will hear a great many complaints about me, but all I ask is for the people to call on the two gentlemen where I stopped." No Compromise Made. The Greensboro Record quotes Dr. Lash and Dr. Benbow as saying that there is no truth in the report regard ing a compromise between the securi ties of the North State Improvement Company and their creditors. Dr. Benbow admits, however, that an effort was made to adjust matters,but there were no creditors present ex cept those who claimed priority of their debts. The cases against Dr. Lash aDd Benbow were to have been tried at the present term of Guilford Court, but owing to the crowded condition of tbe criminal docket it will doubtless be postponed. Will be a Home Wedding. Invitations have been received in Salisbury to the marriage of Miss Lula Stafford, of Winston, to Mr. J. H. Dingelboef, on the 26th inst.

Ramsay and Miss Mary D. Cowles the Contracting Par ties and tbe Presbyterian Manse the Place. From Daily Sentinel, Dec 19. "It is whispered that a marriage, around which clusters much that is romantic, will occur in the Twin-City tonight. If there is no break in Cupid's arrangements tbe particulars will be given in tomorrow's Senti nel." The above announcement, which ap peared in last evening's Sentinel, was read with intense interest and aroused the curiosity of those who are fond of reading about "how the couple fooled the old folks." Before the issue was printed the event referred to above had taken place. The ceremony was performed in the parlor of the First Presby terian parsonage by the pastor, Rev. Robt. E. Caldwell. Miss Mary D. Cowles, daughter of Capt. O. D. Cowles, of the United States Army, recently located at Washington City, and Mr. George D. Ramsay, son of Admiral T. M. Ram say, of the United States Navy, Wash ington, are the names of the lovers who created the surprise and joined hands and hearts. Miss Cowles has been here several weeks, visiting her aunt, Mrs. Dr. H. V. Horton, Main street, Salem. Mr. Ramsay arrived last Saturday to com plete the arrangements for the nuptials. Dr. Horton, by some means, was given a hint that the marriage was to take place yesterday without the knowledge of Miss Cowles' parents. Not knowing whether or not Capt. and Mrs. Cowles would be willing to the match, tbe doctor wired the father a message at Wilkesboro (where the parents are visiting relatives) advising him what might be expected. A re ply came . It read about as follows : "Prevent marriage if possible. Will arrive there tonight." Dr. Horton sent another message stating that he could not change the program unless he (Cowles) would agree not to interfore with the mar riage after his arrival, c Capt. Cowles wired his consent and asked that the ceremony be postponed until after his arrival on tbe eveining train. The couple were unwilling to take any risks fearing that perchance the "old gentleman" might change his mind. A carriage was ordered, the couple were driven to tbe parsonage, and at 5 o'clock, in the presence of Drs. H. V. and P. E. Horton, P. H. Lybrook, R. G. Galloway and Miss Abbie Caldwell, the preacher pronounced them hus band and wife. After the marriage arrangements were made for the trip home. Capt. Cowles, father of the bride, arrived from Wilkesboro on the same train that the happy couple bearded for Washington. Just as he stepped off the car steps he was happily greeted by his daughter and son-in-law. He forgave their disobedience and extend ed a cordial invitation to his children to remain here over night and today go with him on a visit to the other members of the family in Wilkes. Tickets to Washington bad already been purchased, therefore, father's in vitation could not be accepted. Before the train moved off, Capt. Cowles opened bis money purse and made a most liberal contribution to his daughter who was then the smil ing and happy bride of Mr. George D. Ramsay. The groom holds a position in tbe office of tbe Southern Railway at Washington. Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay left for Wash ington carrying with them tbe best wishes of not only Capt. Cowles, but every one who had been made ac quainted with the event which was full of love and romance. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES A Bill Passed Appropriating $100,000 for a Commission. Washington, Dec. 18. Mr. Hitt (Republican, of Illinois) rose in tbe House this morning as soon as it had been called to order and and asked for unanimous consent for the considera tion of a bill to empower the Presi dent to appoint a commission to con sider the Venezuelan boundary question and to appropriate $100,000 for the expenses thereof. The text of tbe bill is as follows "Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That the sum of $100,000, or so much thereof as may be neces sary, be, and the san.e is hereby, ap propriated for the expenses of a commission to be appointed by tbe President to investigate and report upon the true divisional line between the republic of Venezuela and British Guiana." A scene of considerable excitement followed the request of Mr. Hitt for unanimous consent to consider the bill, which had been read by the clerk and loudly applauded. The bill was passed without oppo sition. Married Wednesday. Mr. W. I. Reece, a rising young at torney of Dobson, and Miss Dora Shore, the accomplished daughter of ex-Sheriff W. F. Shore, of Yadkin county, and a sister of The Senti nel's correspondent, "Yendis," were married at the bride's borne at 1 o'clock n. m. Wednesday, tbe 18th Inst. Tbe ceremony was performed by Rev. c. u. Haymore, or . Mt. Airy Failure of E. D, Christian. v Richmond, Va.f Dec. 18 The fail ure or E. v. Christian, a well Known capitalist, is announced to night. His liabilities amount to $166,000. Judge W. I. Leak is named aa trustee. Most of the creditors are Richmond people. The assignment grows out of tne fail ure of James B. Pace. They were both Interested together in many schemes. Wilkes Leads. Up to a few years ago the county of Gaston bad more registered whiskey distilleries than any other county in the State. It Is now claimed that in the county of Wilkes alone there are more distilleries than in this entire revenue district. THE RAZOR BACK HOG. He Makes the Sweetest an A Most Toothsome Meat. One of Winston's well-known busi ness men, who for marry years resided in the Eastern part of the State, where the old-fashioned razor back hog roams, remarked not long since that the improved stock porkers were not in it for sweet, toothsome meat. His views are endorsed by Dr. Kings bury, of the Wilmington Messenger, who says: The best way, as the Messenger has more than once urged, is not to raise tae huge porkers, but good average bogs. It has gone farther and favored the old-fashioned razor back breed, v ell fattened, and because they make tUa Rweetest, most toothsome meat. North Carolina there has been a decided advance for two or three years in hog raising. This fall and winter our State exchanges have given encouraging reports as to the hog crop. It looks as if the farmers and others had done better in 1895 in this business of raising home meat than la any previous year since the great war ended. That is right It is one of the ways to independence and prosperity. Make your own hog and hominy, and plenty of it, and when you tire of it try "bacon and greens," and after that the delicious jowl and turnip salad. To increase the variety try to learn to prepare Boston beans, but do not omit to add the piece of pork. WILL TEST IT. Legality of the Lease of the North Carolina Railway. The State Farmers' Alliance has at last taken the step of instituting suit to test the legality of the lease of the North Carolina railway to tbe South ern railway. It is a most important case. When the Alliance was in ses sion last August, at Gary, the direc tors of the JNorth Carolina railway met at Burlington, made the lease. and ratified it within twenty-four hours. The Alliance at that time desired to institute injunction pro ceedings to prevent the Jease, but was nformed by a lawyer that it would be ten days before the ratification would take place, so nothing was done until t was too late. Ex-Judge Schenck, Spier Whitaker and Charles A. Cook now appear as counsel for the Al liance, and file a motion for the use of the Attorney General's name in the nature of a quo warranto to annul the lease and repeal the charter of the North Carolina road. The matter comes up before the Attorney General at Raleigh next Monday, as be must pass upon the question of the use of ma name, it is not thought he will do this unless Governor Carr, Presi dent Alexander, and the directors of the North Carolina railway are rep resented before him. The action the Alliance takes is a proceeding against the Southern railway. CONFEDERATE. VETEI4AS. Pledge Themselves; to Raise a Com pany "in New York in Case of War. New York, Dec. 18. The officers of the Confederate Veteran Camp of New York, met in special executive session last night aud unanimously adopted the following resolutions: Whereas.the message of the President submitted this day to Congress marks a eritical state in our relations with Great Britain, and while we trust that the difficulty may be amicably adjus ted to the satisfaction and honor of the two greatest nations of the earth, be it "Resolved, That tbe President has taken a position heartily endorsed by us, and from which there should be no step backward. And be it fur ther.

Wilson, Jr., against the street car company, for $10,000 damages, has been continued to tbe February term of Forsyth Superior court, to give the defendants time to answer tbe complaint. We under stand that tbe application of the defendants for removal, upon tbe ground that they cannot secure jus tice in this county, was not passed upon at this term. MIE DOCTOR SAYS She Died of Bright's Disease, and Not of Inhuman Treatment. Dr. Joel Hill, of Lexington, says he attended the wife of Henry Raker, of Davidson county, during her illness, and that she died of Bright's disease, and not from injuries iDfiicted by her husband. The Sentinel is pleased to learn that the report published re garding Mr. Raker's inhuman treat ment to bis wife is a mistake. Of Interest to Hunters.

Fife, the "Drummer Evangelist," tbe papers continue to all mm, (he ought to enter the min istry) has had a big work as reported at Front Royal, Va. He had 225 re ported conversions. It was the big gest meeting ever held in that county, Warren. He went from Front Royal to Alderson, W. V. "Of the-morethan 900 reported conversions at Winston, N. C., only some 150 or less, have join ed the churches. A Novel Escape. A prisoner on the chain gang , of Guilford made his escape in a novel fashion. He told a guard that in the woods near by he saw a cat chasing a rabbit. The guard went to see this sight and the sly convict fled. There is nothing that causes greater dis comfort and misery than the constantly re curring Headache.

I baVe never regretted it's use." 11. B. rierd lit. Ysrnon, Ky. WINSTON PUBLIC BUILDING. Mr. Liney Introduces a Bill for a $75,000 Appropriation.

LIGHTING THE YULE TIDE LOG. An Old English Custom That Has Not Entirely Disappeared.

This log is otrn called the Yule log-, and it was on Christmas eve that it was put on the wide hearth. Around it would gath er the entire family, and its entrance was the occaniou of a great ileal ot ceremony.
