The night was a most horrible ore
Ptrewed alone the main channel and
about the opening were th** arm.v be .

ihe dead miner.'
Pafher . and mothers were frantically
hunting for sons, and • fist as a holy

than to .- y It was caused ly an rx*e*§tve
chartt* of powder tw in* used. The fn.ners
insist that it was caused by fir. lamp
The mine was rroenily Insp* ted ar.d
pronounced to l*e in good condition.
John W Green, who was in the mine
at the time of the explosion and *■■ npel
Injury, gives the follow ing nc rount of It
•*I w* nt Into the mine at 7D o’clock and
went to Boom No 1 I had bo nat work
an hour or er when I smelled bln* k damp.
J noticed my lamp would flicker. I went ;
lo the mine toss ami told him about It
He laughed, and said it wn uk right l
went back to work and about midnight
beard a terrific noise, which knocked nm
down and pus out my lamp I wax stun
ned for a moment and then readied what
had i • t
trance and crawled over the bodies of tw.
Hadlee Madly Mutilated.
As the work of removing the and n I go>
on things look woree Four m*n have be* n
brought out during the last hour and the
searchers report that a doibn are \et In
the mine. Moat of those brought out ire
mutilated beyond description. The mine
of Bwrrysburg have only hern operated 41
short time. They have had n great deal
of trouble. First, the mines were (looted
and then Ihe men -truck. Last week the
eta-toes were eet on fire and twenty-six
horses burned. Now ccenes the explosion
Col. B. F. Berry, the millionaire mine
owner, arrived here this morning, but re
ftlMd to dls mire the affair. Most of the
miners have leen here but a few week
and as they were almost unknown to each
other it It hard o recognise a m in when
he H found Most of the men came from
North Carolina and the District of Colum
Fgly rumor* have been afloat all day
long about the cause of the disaster. The
most chnrltablr con.-t ruction to place on
•he matter Is that it was due to the ln
experlen #■ of the mine boas, Ollle Marks,
who wrns killed.
Froftkviitirg Attorney C M Murphy and
Justice W. U Keys left to-night for
QJarrysburg to hold an inquest.
A messenger returned from the

“I am glad In this campaign that w*
have ih< upt>rt of many who ware
again-i us before Ido not criticise them
hurdilv and I did til when they left us.
• *u*e | hellev* that the great majority

I did not agree with them In that—l did

now that If I had been elected we wo il)
not now be confronted by the crisis thit
I- before us. 1 believe that those who

their duty to their country.

But, many who thanked God that I was

stoill not be defeated again. It iloes not
mean that they have change*) their sentl
m#*r ts sin* • then. I does not necessarily
in* in that they have changed In their
opinions upon the questions which were
paramount then, but It does mean that
four years of Republh an rule have
brought us face to face with a greater
question than any which has ever been
before this country’ I believe the issue to.
day is even greater than was the issue of
IMO. for then the question was whether
we should have one republic or two re

t* perform that work I want to feel that
