Kansas Citt, 3Io., April 4. The election
yesterday went off with a hurrah. The re
sult was mysterious and surprising. Tucro
v.-crc three regular tickets Republican,
Democratic and Labor. Prom the first two
the Law and Order league selected a ticket,
while Davcnpart, Tor recorder, ran indo
psndcnt. The Kepublipaas will have the
Council by one vote, if Tauc, the only La
bor candidate elected, .votes with them.
There was a largo nud unblushing amount
of bribery and treating, the streets being
filled with drunken men, but no disorder
was reported. Two arrests were mado of
ticket peddlers for touting within two hun
dred feet of the polls. The result may be
regarded as a victory for the saloon ele
ment. Kumpf, Republican, is elected by a
majority of IMG. Uoliucs,Democrat,iseleeted
treasurer by a majority of 1,700, and Daven
port, Independent, is elected by a majority
of 3,700, and a plurality over Snow, who de
fcjtod him for the nomination, of 6,192. So
Kumpf and Davenport are both indorsed.
Winram, Republican caudidatefor auditor,
. pulls through by u plurality of 1,536, and
' City Attorney Hawkins will have the
pleasure of being sat down upon for anoth
er year by Davenport. His call was a close
one, but he got there by a plurality
of 316 and will stay there anoth
er year. Lucas, the Democratic nom
inee for mayor endorsed by the Law

Rich LIlli, Mo., March 30. An explosion
of natural gas occurred in mine No. 0 of
the Keith & Perry Coal Company, located
about three miles west of the city, near tho
Rich Hill Gas Company's natural gas well,
shortly after twelve o'clock noon yester
day. There are about 100 men employed in
this mine, but at the time of tho explosion
only about thirty wero below. Attempts
were at once made to rescuo tho unfortu
nate men, and eight miners had been
brought to the surface alivo when a second
explosion occurred at 3:30 o'clock, at which
time Superintendent George Sweeney and
five miners were in the shaft at work, all
of whom were more more or Ic3s burned,
bat none dangerously. ,
The scene about the mouth of the shaft,
where the wives, mothers and relatives of
tho miners, wild with the agony of sus
pense over the unknown fata of their loved
mes were collected was heartrendiag.
The mines wereoxamined about two weeks
ag$ by Mine Inspector Wolfe and pro
nounced safe.
At two o'clock thhvmorning a telephone
message was rcceived.from. the mine to the
effect that fifteen men had been taken out
the mine, fourteen of them alive. Mr.
Maaville,who is alert and doing all possi
ble, is of the opinion that so long as the
men taken out are not ail dead it could not
have been due to gas but to powder. He
holds that gas always burns the oxygen
and no one could live under such circum
stances. A reporter called at the residence of the
superintendent at eleven o'clock last night
and found him propped in a chair with hie
face and hands bandaged and scarcely able
to talk, but he mode the following state
At just aeven minutes after noon I wael
telephoned that an explosion had occurred
at If a 6, which is four miles northwest of
town. I went out as soon as possible and
found the south cage on which the men al
ways ascend, stuck m the shaft about half
way from the bottom with eight men on it.
JJ went down in a tub lowered with ropes
I. and found them all badly burned and in
frenzy. In fact, they wero crazy, some
hadooing and others singing. I found it
inSbssible to have this cam hoisted as the
timbers were all blown out of position. We
finally managed to be hoisted by means of
I rbnesand pulley, in a fainting condition,
jjidit' was then ascertained that the north
eugo iuuiu wnur&cu u clearing utvajr
some timbers which had been driven
through from the south shaft. This was
dose by sawing them short off. I then
called for volunteers to go down with me
to see if any of the poor fellows at tho bot
tom could be got out Robert Bick, George
Henry, Charles Smallwood and Mat Dule
hand responded.
When we reached .hc bottom I looked
through into the entry, and saw alight,
and I asked who was there, and a voice re
sponded:' "Gray," and I told him to put
out bis light. I then asked him to crawl to
me, but he was so exhausted that he could
not do so, and I reached through the small
aperture and dragged him on to the cage.
Just as this was done a wind rushed with
the velocity of a cyclone up the entry,
putting out all our lights but one. This
was followed by two loud reports and'a
seething name of bre. which came with
a deadening roar, completely enveloping
us for a length. of, time which seemed
like an age, and shot out, the
mouth of the shaft, two hundred and.Mrty
feet above our heads, and we were all
horribly burned, and thought our time1 had
come, but the flames receded as suddenly
as they had come, and we had to abandon
the attempt to save the others. I yelled to
the men on top to hoist away, but it was
some time before they got the signal er
understood my meaning. The roomen
thus scent were a living death. I though
they could not hear me and concluded we
would have to crawl through tho j south
shaft and undertake to climb out that way.
I was just in the act of doing so when I felt
the cage move and we ascended
about thirty feet, when the cage begaa de
scending. I thought the machinery broken
and that we were falliug to an awful and
certain death. Oh I the wail that went up
from those men was heartrending and 1
shall never forget it. The knowledge that
at the top was their wives extending their
arms ready to clasp and shield tbera from
further danger was imiddening and enongh
to destroy reason. All at once, however,
the cage came to a sudden stop and again
began responding to the pressure of rope
and pulley and we were soon at the top.
" Rtcn Hill. Mo., March '.Hi. It was just
12:10 o'clock when a low rumbling noise
was heard in mine No. ti, owned by the
Keith & Perry Coal Company, four miles
from Rich Hill. It was quickly followed
by it fearful report which shook the earth
for many miles. Had the explosion oc
curred a few minutes sooner it would have
imperiled the lives of over a hundred in
stead of thirty-five, who were in the shaft.
The excitement was as nothing compared
with the suspense which prevailed.
Immediate steps were taken to rescuo
the miners who were imprisoned by the
explosion and as soon a it was safe to do
so, and the lire resulting from the explo
sion had been subdued, a roscuing party
descended Into the shaft. They had scarce
ly got to wurk when another explosion oc
curred and t he would-be rescuers narrowly
escaaed with their lives. Ono of these
was George W. Sweeuey, superintendent
of the mine, and he was badly burned ahont
the haadt and face.
The work of rescuing was thus delayed
for many hour. The cries of the impris
oned men could be heard, but they grew
fainter and fainter, and by nine o'clock
ceased altogether. Thus fur five have been
taken oat dead and fifteen alive. Most of
the latter have suffered intensely from the

before the second ' explosion occurred
and . sixteen afterwards, all of
whom wero alive but one has
since died. It is thought the others will
recover. Twenty-ono dead bodies have
been taken out. State Mino Inspector Wolf
is universally condemned by practical
miners. On March C, he pronounced this
mine safe. The cause of the explosion was
the accumulation' of foul gases without
proper ventilation.
Death Roll N'ambers Twenty-sis A Start
ling Statement.
Rich Hill, Mo.1; April ti Yesterday was
tho saddest Easter Sunday in tho history
of this young city, occasioned by the fu
neral service and burial of several of the
victims of tho atp mino disaster. No au
thoritative record of the number or miners
in the exploded mice could in any way bo
secured, as now men wero constantly being
employed in the place of those more ex
perienced, who feared the danger
of this mino, and it was not un
expected news when word came
in last evening that two more
dead bodies had been found in the search
continued after it was reported that all the
missing hod been recovered. The death
roll new numbers twenty-six, and there
yet may be more dead found.
The coroner'a jury will continue their
work ef examining witnessos to-day and
SUte Mine Inspector M. L. Wotfo will be
summoned to testify. , "
The evidence will most likely develop the
fact that at no time since the February fire
in this mine, when it was flooded, had the
fire been put out, but that in one of the
west galleries the -smoldering fire was
banked and hermetically sealed and in this
way had been manufacturing carbureted
hydrogen gas, around which a gallery was
being driven to eventually cut it off.
This gas when mingled with nine
parts of air is very explosive, and it is con
jectured that a shock created in blasting
the entry around this hidden furnace,
caused a break, letting the pent up gas into
the mine, causing the explosion and its ter
rible results. Some of the best citizens are
members of the jury and they are deter
mined to unearth all the evidence relating
to the cause of the disaster.
Hopkins Sentiment.
Cincinnati, April 2. Benjamin K. Hop
kins, late assistant cashier of the Fidelity
National Bank, who has been in jail for two
months awaiting sentem-e under a convic
tion for violation of tho National Banking
laws, was brought into the United States
court this morning, upon motion of District
Attornoy Burnett, and was.shw6eiJead.lo
the penitentiary for seven yBMSaadwb
months. He appeared broken down from
illness, but did not manifest deep emotion
upon receiving his sentence. When the
judge was saying It would be better for
him to be at Columbus during his illness
than at the county jail, because he wouldn't
have to pay there for extra attention he
might reqjire, he interrupted the judge to
say that that disadvantagj bad been re
moved by the jailer, who had ceased to
make extra charges.
