Tho disaster throws 1 1 widows and !0
children on tho world's charity.
Tho supposition'is tho men wero busily
at work timlraring when tho rocky roof
camo tumbling down upon their heads,
crushing thorn out of semblance to hu
manity, and putting a wall of debris be
tween them nnd tho month of tho shaft
600 feet in thickness. At,lirst thero was
sorno hope that if tho men could be
rcachod in reasonable time, they could be
saved. But tho rescuing party hud been
in tho nilno only n short timo when they
woro obliged to retreat on account of
the further caving. A second rescuing
party went down tho shaft, but soon
camo back disheartened and all hope of
rescuing the men was given up.
The news of abandoned hopo soon
spread and tho wives and children of tho
imprisoned men, who had assembled at
the mouth of tho shaft, set up a most
pitiful cry of distress. Two of tho wom
en fainted nnd had to bo carried away
by friends. Even stout hearted men
wept almost as bitterly as tho fatherless
children. Tho disaster is tho worst that
has occurred in the anthracito regions
since 1885, when 22 men perished by n
cavo-in in mine No. 1 of tho Susquehanna
Coal company at Nanticokc. Their

Talllant Find an Imitator In the Fcrion
of Leon Ilreton.
Paris, Fob. 13. A young man acting
from motives of rovengo exploded n
bomb at 0 o'clock Monday evening in a
cafe beneath tho Terminus hotel, which
is situated opposite tho St. Lazare sta
tion. Tho place was full of people and
the wildest excitement prevailed. Tho
bomb had landed on n table, around
which a party had been sitting, and this
loom had been reduced to splinters. Tho
persons grouped at this tablo suffered tho
most. Tho injured wero 15, nearly all
wounded in tho legs. Somo of them
wero badly hurt and they wero removed
to a chemist shop nearby, whero thoy
wero cared for.
Meantimo tho miscreant had not been
allowed to escape. Ho proved to be
Leon Breton, a man of i)0 years, who hod
been employed in tho enfo as a waiter,
but had been discharged for misconduct.
A policeman was sitting on tho top of
omnibus nnd saw Breton. Ho jumped
to the ground nnd followed him nnd run
him to tho earth a few yards up tho Ruo
do Rome, nt a spot opposite tho Scoksa
restaurant. Breton turned on thn police
man, revolver in hand, nnd fired a shot
at him. Tho policeman grubbed him
and both fell. Whilo on tho ground
Breton fired another shot at tho police
man and struck n woman who was pass
ing, who fell mortally wounded. In tho
meantimo a crowd had collected at
tracted by the shots. Tho policeman
who had grabbed .Breton had been budly
wounded by Breton's first shot and was
unable to hold on to his revolver and the
latter, still brandishing his rovolver, re
gained his feet. Tho peoplo wero furious
and seemed inclined to lay hands upon
him. Tho sight of tho rovolver restrained
them nt first, but finally headed by an
other policeman they rushed forward to
secure, him.
Breton again attempted to uso his re
volver, but tho policcmnn cut him over
the face with his saber, stnggoring him.
Ho was then arrested. Tho mob de
manded that ho bo lynched, nnd thoy
would have done so had not a strong es
cort of police arrived. Ho was then es
corted to tho office of tho commissary of
police on tho Ruo do Moscow. Five per
sons who were passing the cafe at the
timo of the oxplosion were injured by
flying fragments of glass. Tho bullot re
ceived by tho policeman from Breton's
rovolver has been extracted and it is
hoped he will recover.
Broton told the doctor who dressed tho
wound from tho policeman's subrothat
Irta main object was toavengo Vnillant.
