In everal Families the Affliction is Vary Great Bread wlnnor Ruthlessly Snatch. d Away A Man Find Ills Three Sans riled Together In a Heap-The Cause of the Disaster Unknown. Halifax, N. S., Feb. 23. Details at hand from the terrible calamity which happened at Spring Hill colliery show that it was the most disastrous as re gards loss of life that everbetell this con tinent, with the posible exception of the Scottsdale, Pa., explosion recently. By Saturday night's explosion 117 lives were lost and 50 persons injured, some fatally. Fifty-one were married and 56 were single. One hundred and fifty-seven children are fatherless. The damage to property is not very great. The horror is supposed to have been caused by a sudden outbreak of gas. The mine was inspected Friday by government officials and a few days ago by a committee of the miners and pro nounced perfectly safe. Killed by At er Damp. The explosion was confined to "Nos. 6 and 7 balances," where it did its most deadly work. The pits are connected for purposes of ventilation and it is ow ingto this that so many were killed in No. 2. The bodies taken out of the pit were not mutilated in any way and bear evi dence of having been suffocated by after damp. Death from this cause is painless. ltrnve Volunteers. Volunteers courageously took off their coats and bravely undertook the danger ous work oi rescue. Malcolm Blue did splendid work in bringing out the in jured. The Rev. David Wright, pastor of the Presbyterian church, went down to succor the relieving party, and re freshed them with hot coffee. Three of the rescuers were brought out uncon scious from the effects of the after damp. Scveial Families Sorely Afflicted. In several of the families the affliction is very great. Reid Carter and his two sons are among the dead. The Car michael family lose three sons. Jesse Armishaw went down slope No. 2 last night and found his three sons and a brother piled together in a heap in one corner of the mine. The sight so un nerved him that he had to return to the surface without his boys. Two sons of Robert Mcvey, both under 14 years, oc cupy one coffin. Hugh Hunt loses two sons. These sorrowful households are only a few ot the large number from which bread winners have been so ruthlessly snatched. The deepest gloom has set tled over the whole community and the inhabitants were astir all night. A special train arrived during the morning from Westville and other min ing centres in Pictou County with rela tives of the dead. Burnt d Past Kecociiltlon. The large carpenter shop is nsed as a morgue. The corpses are taken there, cleaned, and "then laid out for identifica tion by relatives and friends. In several instances the charred remains have been almost unrecognizable, and the only clew to identification has been some ves tige of clothing or some marks on the body. Two cases of mistaken identity of the dead are renorted. OBSERVING THE DAY. Services at New Turk and tbeCapltal in Honor of Washington. New York, Feb. 23.

QUEER DIVORCE CASE, A Woman Kefusi-s to L.lva Wl b Her Has baud Uecause He is a felon. Asburt Pabk, N. J., Feb. 28. Ameri cus Rogers, the 28-year-old son of ex Postmaster Captain John Rogers, of Hamilton, N. J., has applied to the Court of Chancery for an absolute di vorce from bis wife Mary, charging de sertion. Mrs. Rogers has filed her answer to her husband's petition, and Chancellor McGill, who passed the papers over to Vice Chancellor Robert S. Green, re marked that the woman's reply was one of the most unique he had ever come across. In her answer Mrs. Rogers says that shortly after her marriage her husband, who was employed as a clerk by bis father, who was at that time postmaster at Hamilton, was arrested for robbing the mails. His indictment and convic tion followed and he was sentenced to two years and a half in State prison at Trenton. Mrs. Rogers in her petition takes the stand that it was impossible for her to live with her husband while he was in prison and that after his release, some three months ago, she could not do so, as her friends would "queer" her with living with a felon. So she refused to do so. Mrs. Rogers is a very handsome woman, hardly 24 years of age. She is a decided brunette and of stately form. Since her husband's arrest she has been living at Long Island City with her parents, who are well connected. Captain Rogers, the father of Ameri- cus, is one of the best known farmers in Monmouth County and is in comfortable circumstances. Since Americus was released from jail he has resided at Hamilton, which is a small hamlet about two miles west of Ocean Grove, N. J. The hearing in the case will take place at Freehold early next month. WORLD'S FAIR EXPENSES. Belief that All tbe Money Spent Will Re Out Back In Gate Receipts. Chicago, Feb. 23.

In his speech at Roscommon Mr. Parnell avoided all allu sion to the attacks upon him. and he seldom showed signs of excitement. tie addressed to his auditors a calm and reasoning argument on the sub ject of Irish home rule, and urged that it would be absolute folly to accept any thing less than the terms which he had demanded. He argued that Ireland was entitled to a parliament armed with the fullest power to deal with Irish affairs, and subject only to the sovereign veto; that the land and the police should be fully committed to Irish care, not after an interval of five years, but immediate ly npon the organization of.- the Home Rule Parliament. He advised his hearers to think for themselves, as Irishmen, and not as de pendent on the opinions and guidance of any English faction or party. Mr. Parnell was cordially received bv the large assemblage, and rude attempts to insult him met with no encouragement. It is believed that Mr. Parnell intends to pursue the calmly aggressive course which he illustrated in this speech, and that he will disappoint those who expect to see him indulge in the bitterness which ne 8b owed at Kilkenny. It is said that William O'Brien will strongly oppose the policy of the Irish bishops, which, it is expected, he will publicly condemn directly after he leaves prison. To tbe telegram received from T. P. O'Connor to the effect that the great majority of the Irishmen in America are McCarthyites, is attributed the under taking of a McCarthyita mission to that country. Bealy Mot Allowed to Speak.

Seven Thousand Trades Unionists Tura Out for tbe Cardiff Strikers. London, Feb. 23. The meeting in East End Park in support of the Cardiff strikers was attended by about seven thousand members of the trades' unions. The gathering was orderly and respectable, and both speakers and audi ence avoided any expression of dis order. Michael Davitt, who has just returned from a ten days' illness in Ireland, was the principal speaker. He urged that all the workers in Great Britain should be joined in one universal union for the support of each other's interests. The employers, be said, bad shown tbe example in the Shipping Federation of a vast combination for a mutual object, and it was only, by a general and bind' incr nledcre to support each other in their just claims that tbe rights 01 tne worn- men could be upheld. Mr. uavitt was heartily applauded. Mr. Tillett and others earnestly urged that the workingmen of all trades should come to the support of the Cardiff strikers. It was, Mr. Tillett said, not a local contest, but one in which the prin ciples of trades unions were at stake. A victory for tbe docK company wouia affect more than the Dockers' Union. Twenty bands of musio were presen t and played at-intervals during the meet ing. The new hands engaged for tbe sute docks at Cardiff are not permitted to live on shore, but are Kept on steamers laid up and stationed in the middle of the docks.
