The legates are all hero today , and the question Is al to what concession shal be a lade to the minority , which claims to be over two.fltii ! . and almost one-half the membership of the convention. The BrIce men are not Illacng any objection to any at the free silver candidates , John Thom3s and Colonel James Kibourn" , for governor and they are both pronounced advocates of diver. John II.

I Is at thIs jonc- tore of the proceedings that the contest he- tween the free silver and the BrIce men Is expected , although the latter had things the'r way today.

Wood & Co. took $ ; GOOOO , W , II. Cr09man & Dros. ,000,000 and Neulage & I uler $00,00. These wlth- drawal reduced the reserve to $99,550,000 , the lowest I has ben since the Delmont- I"-gan syndicate completed their contract wIth the government and paid for the new 4 iIt cent bonds , the proceeds of which brought the gold reserve up to $107,000,000. In fact , today was the first time since the completion ot the contract that the reserve was reduced below $100,000,000. The bonll syndicate later In the day deposited $2.000- 00 In gold In the subtreasury and therOby kert the government reserve at the $100,000- 000 marl WASINOTON , Aug. 20.-The gold syndl- cato today Prevented the gold reserve from taIlng below the $100,000,000 mark. About 2 o'clock the Treasury department was Informed - formed that $2.r ! 0,000 In geld hal been withdrawn - - I drawn for expor ) from the subtreuury In I New York. Aa the gold reserve at the close I ot business today stood at $102,527,140 , the withdrawal would have reduced the reserve to $ 99,677,118. A few minutes afterward , however , Acting Secretary Curtis received n telegram saYing that Mr. PlerpDnt Morgan of the syndicate hall deposited $2,000,000 In gel In exchange for greenbacks. This de- posit swelled the reserve to $101,677,148. The ofcials at the department display no apprehensIon as to the gel reserve , and Intmate that the syndicate will continue to make deposits to olhet withdrawals . lInt they declIne to express their reasons for their faith aud the question raised constantly Is as to the pledge tinder which the sY1I- cato Is making these deposits and the period covered , as well as the ability of the ( syndi- cato to continue to protect the reserve. But little lght can be shed on these questions , however , as It Is said that probably only two government ofilcials and Secretary Car- lisle know the unwritten part at the agreement - ment made with the sY1lcate which se- cured the last Issue of bonds. The syndicate has E far voluntarily de- po led about $8.000.000 In gold. The manner - net In which the s'nllcate has accumulated the gold whIch I has voluntariy exchanged at tha trclsury for greenbacks Is not abso- Intel ) known , lD the s'lleate does not lake public its operaton ! , but at the treasury It Is belevell the most of tt Is obtained by giving exchange on San Francisco and hy buying bullion checlls. The circulation In San Francisco Is practically all gold. The move- ment of money Is east , as a result or which San Francisco exchange In New York I usually at a premium equal to the cost of transportation of gold across the continent. For the sale reason New York exchange on San Francisco I Is often at I slight discount , alhough just now It Is at par. By oferIng exehauge on San Francisco , therefore the syndicate can accumulate large quantities of gold In San Francisco at practically no ex- pense. The syndicate Cln also procure gold hy buying bullion checks Issued for bullion d511sltcII at the assay offices anti the gov- erment mints. These , at the present tme , I when there Is a Ilemanll for gold , bring a slJlt premium. I Is not beleved , however , ' that the syndicate Is put to much expense In accumulatnl In this fashIon , practically the entire prolucton , ot the American gold mines , which averages about $35,000,000 a I yen. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ; II'l'AII.S Ol PA"I < T AItItANGII ) .

Up to nQn the State depatment had Hot been advised that Ccnul Ixon and the English consul hal not been allowed to be present at the investigation ot the Ku-Cheng riots , thoulh no surprise was lanlfested that such was the case as In tme ! last Ille action hal been takemm I Is scarcely prob- able that a peremptory demand will be made that these officers be allowed to take part 11 the Investlgattomm . The State department was Inrormed today there was some dl3poslton on the part of the Chinese efcals ! not to allow the Amen- can 0111 nrltsh officers to be presmt at the Investgation of the Ku.Cheng riot . I Is stated at the department that the Isnal hitch Ils occurred , In which the Chinese officials have refnsell to alow any Interference wih their farina of procedure. In every case where them has been an Investgaton ot the kind proposed the same objections have been made , the ChInese olilcials' fearing they mmmay lose prestige with their peopie : If they allow foreigners to partIcipate In their courts. These objections have always ended In the suhmlsslcn ot the Chinese after some dela ) ' . I can be stated authorlatvel ) that the instructions to Minister Denby cover all clnestlons ! now In controversy , anti that the ) tntgaton \ 1 be conducted In such muman . nor as to allow the AmerIcan representative to secure complete and full Inrormaton as to the cause or the riots anti the persons par. tclpatng In them , whether high or low. The assurance Is also given . that this will be done In snch a manner as1 to leave nothing for complaint hy the Alerlcl people on the score of faln ! to obtalr the facts relating to the disturbances. I Is net at all probable that Minister Denb hat ! , been directed te make any such demand as that to be made by the Irltsh mInister ! at PekIng as It 1 kno\\n here that such a demand will not be feces- Sn ry. ry.Time The Chinese minister has'lnfonne hIs gov- ernment that the best InterNts of Chna ! will wi be served by ccordlng to the American and British ofecr the most thorough opportunities - ties for obtaining all Informaton desired. The attention of China has'been called to the fact that when the Unied States Goverment was investigating the Chinese riots In this country Chinese olclas ! were asked to be present to ohaln all the pirticuiars. I Is believe at the' State deprtment that the reCusl1 of' ' the Cilnese authorities wi do no more than to delay the investigatIon until the ChInese govermcnt al direct ti1 olcers a1 Kn.Chen to accord the Alner ! an and BritIsh - lab officers the priviege to be prewnt and direct the Il'eslgatonhlcl \ ' will brng : out the facts. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 1."lnn X" " , Cr0 Iii .fgi 1111mm. .

The explosion was due to a "hang" In the furnacc , which was suddenly loosened and droppel Into the 10lten metal below , generat- log an Immense quantIty of gas so sUddenly that It could not escape by the ordinary means ali the eXIJloslon followed.

A few minutes before the explosion occurred one of time top flers ) I dumped a barrow of material Into time bell of the furnace , which he had forgotten to raIse. This clogged the top or the furlce ami prevented the gas esCalJlng. A gang of sixteen men In charge of James Harrison was sent at once to the top of the iurnace to re- move the obstruction. All were closely crowded Iround the bell ot the furnace , removing - moving the material whIch had been dumped on It , when there was a terrific explosion , and men , barrows , tools and material were hurled In all tiirectiorus . lamcs , deadly gases and smoke belched Cram the furnace top and the gang of men fell as I shot Only one was 111 d instantly. He was blown frol the furnace top along the metal roadway to the elevator shmatt , down whIch he fell , and strltng on a car , ' was cut In two , one half ot his body falling emi one hal ot the car and the other halt on the other side. side.The The explosion was hearll all over Dradllock arid , cGwi a once rushed to time ' scene , hut none expected to wines such horro'rs : A ' re- le crew was quickly organized and went to the to\ of the furnace , where lay fifteen men , bleeding , torn , burned and dying. The names anti smoke were still , coming tram the flrnsce and the work of rescue was dangerous In the extreme , but , covering thetr hands faces " anti heads wih cloths , the rescuers went "ravely to work. The Injured men were lned alors the furnace when thc explosion oecumreti. Three men died betora . reaching the botom ot the elevator shaft and the other three died before 9 o'clock this morning.
