The killed: Hani I la roe r, Allen Fallis, John Thompson, Charles Ilartel, Henry Lonsdale, Havens, a boy. The explosion occurred attirant well, locuted at the rear of the National Sup ply company's oflicc building in the vil lage limits. This well had just been fchot by Samuel P.arber, the shooter for the Ohio & Indiana Torpedo company. The well was a gasscr, and when the 120 quarts of glycerine letdown into the well exploded, the gas ignited, and w ith a terrible roar the Haines shot high above the derrick. As Koon as the drillers saw the flames several climbed into the derrick to shut off the gas. but they had hardly gotten there when there wa a terrific explo sion. The burning gas had started the remaining glycerine iti the empty cans standing in a wagon near the derrick. In another wagon near by were some cans containing another 120 quarts of the stuff and this was started by the force of the explosion. The second was blended with the iirst in n mighty roar end the town and surrounding country for miles trembled from the shock. The National Supply company'H building was completely demolished and nothing remains but a big hole where the wagons stood. There is not a whole piece of glass in any window in the tow n and every house aud More wus shaken to the foundations.

Frmier and Ituaaln Will Need Much American (.ruin. Washington. Sept. 8. W. P. At well, commercial agent of the United States at Ilobaix, France, sends to the state de partment a rcjKirt on the short wheat crop in France. He says the crop In France, and in fact In all Furope, has fallen much h-!ov the average, nnd that It Is estimated that the United States and Canada will be called upon to ex port from 120.000,000 to 130.000,000 bushels more than they exported to F.t;rope last yenr. France will require alwut 00,000,000 to meet the dellciency In that country. Consul lleenan, at Odessa, has made quite an extensive reort to the state department concerning the failure of Hie crops In IJussi.i. In many district It has been the wettest season ever known and grain has been destroyed by both rain nnd hail. Much of the grain was not worth the expense of binding. The wheat received at Odessa is of a very Inferior quality. The report predicts that little wheat will be ex ported from Knsia during the season of J8'.'7-!S, as there Is little available for thai purpose, the old stocks being prac tirally exhausted, ami tlie new crop little more than sulliclent for the home demand. The failure of the wheat crop lit Austria-Hungary, Koumania and Ilulgarin, Consul lleenan continues, has brought buyers from those countries Into Russia nnd wheat which would or dinarily leave Odessa by steamers, i destined to go by rail from the Interior Into the countries named.

Twelve or 15 jer sor.s were killed and as many more were bi.dly hurt. The fast mail train going cast and the Mexico and California ex press west bound collided head on. The Mexico and California express was pulled by two locomotives, and when they struck the engine drawing the fast mail, the boilers of nil three engines exploded and tore a hole in the ground si deep that the smoking cars of the westbound train went In on top of the three engines and two mall cars and balanced there, without turning over. The passengers In tlie smoking car es caped through the windows. The front end of this car was enveloped in a vol ume of stifling smoke and steam, belch ing up from the wreck below, and the rear door was jammed tight In tire wreck of the car behind.

Situation (irrnii to 1'olnt lo Ilejee. tloii of C'olumliua I'ropoaK Ion. Columbus, ()., Sept. U. The interstate miners' convention adjourned Wednes day evening until this morning without having tuken a vote on the question of accepting or rejecting the proposed set tlement of the strike. The prospects for the acceptance of the settlement are fcomewhat doubtful; in fact a canvass of the situation shows a majority of the votes, unless some change should be brought about, will be cast against It. The greater part of the afternoon ses sion of the convention was secret, the delegates listening to speeches from National President Hatchford ami State Presidents Farms, of Ohio; Knight, of Indiana; Carson, of Illinois, ami Dolan, of Pittsburgh. All of these olliciuls. with the exception of Mr. Carson, ar gued in favor of the acceptance of the. Pittsburgh operators' proposition. They told the delegates very plainly that If the proposition was rejected the strike would fail utterly; that the con test could not be continued as all re sources had been exhausted. They ad vised that Inasmuch as the strike had been precipitated in the Pittsburgh dis trict it was very proper that it should be settled there. President Carson, of Illinois, told the delegates just as plainly why they could not support the proposition for a settlement, lie f.aid the Illinois min ers were practically ignored by it. The operators of his state had notified him that they would not abide by any set tlement made with the Pittsburgh operators. In many of the Illinois dis tricts, moreover, the miners had signed ironclad contracts which run until next May. Should the Pittsburgh and Ohio ami Indiana miners resume opera tions, the Illinois operators would be compelled to open their mines ulso aud the only recourse the miners of the state would have would be a local strike, for which they were unprepared. The best they could do would be to accept the operators' terms and that would eventually force a reduction again in the other states. The most important action of the con vention was in determining the basis of representation. Some of the delegates wanted n rule that no delegate should be allowed to cast more than six votes. This, if adopted, it is claimed, would have settled the question of the accept ance of the strike settlement very quickly. It was the sentiment of the convention, however, that representa tion should be fixed so that all miners should have a voice In the settlement. Accordingly it was decided that one vote should be cast for every hundred miners represented. This makes the votes to be cast by each state about ns follows: Western Pennsylvania. ".'!0; Ohio, 2S0; West Virginia, 110; Indiana, CO; Illinois, 200. The Illinois vote, which will be cast against the oper ator's proposition, will about offset the vote of western Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh district). The vote of Ohio is about cqunlly divided on the propo sition, also the West Virginia vote. This practically leaves the balance of power in the hands of the Indiana dele gates. Should they vote with Illinois, which some of the delegates say they have instructions to do. by Inference, if rot by direct language, the proposed settlement will undoubtedly be defeat ed. The Indiana delegates say they are instructed not to vote in favor or the operators' proposition unless a general settlement will be effected by it. In view of the position of the Illinois miners, they o not see their way clear to vote to accept the proposition. It develops that the vote of the Pitts burgh district will not be unanimous in favor of accepting the settlement, as some of the delegates have stated open ly they would not vote for it. The lead ers of the miners are doing some quiet missionary work and hnve hopes that they will be nble to turn the tide In favor of a settlement. To-dav the mem bers of the national executive board will be heard by the convention, nnd as they all strongly Indorse the settlement their views may have considerable weight with the delegates. The con vention is one of the largest delegates' gatherings the miners have ever had. SIX DROVNED. t'nreleaa I'lenanre Meeker Sleet Mud den I'nte enr Detroit. Detroit, Mich., Sept. 0.

The general government will render all assistance in Its power to check the spread of yel low fever. This will be done mainly through the agency of the Marine hos pital kervlce. Dr. Walter Wyman, the Lead of the bureau, returned to this city Tuesday afternoon and assumed active charge In directing the work iu assisting the state olliciuls of Missis sippi in their elTorts to confine the dis ease to the locality where it appears to have Marted. Dr. Wyman says that as jet he has no opinion to express wheth er the disease is really yellow fevw, al though he admits It looks very suspi cious. The precautionary measures he has taken are based entirely on the declarations of the state board of health of Louisiana In the (Jelpl case, which was that the disease from which the person died was yellow fever. New Orleans, Sept. 8. Night fell upon New Orleans without a single case of yellow fever having Wen reported to the board of health. Hut one imported case thus far has been developed here" and death has wiped that out. The board of health, through Its president, Dr. OHiphant, and its president pro tern, Dr. Walmsley, declares that in spite of all reports to, the contrary, not one of the many who have come hither from Ocean Springs has beeu strickeu with the fatal disease. Dr. Hunter, of the Mississippi board of health, came Into town Tuesday night from Hiloxl. He reports three new suspicious cases and a later tele gram from Hiloxl says it is bona tide el low fever. Only one additional death has been reported at Ocean Springs with symi toms of yellow fever, a mulatto. No new cases have been reported. Ocean Springs has been absolutely cut off from the outside world, and the only means of reaching the tow n are by wire or mail. Jackson, Miss., Sept. S.
