: .The Republican party, always foremost

importance of irrigation to the people of'

interests la the enactment of the first gen

United States to enact .such laws as will
determine the .rights between citizens of

KILLED. BY AN EXPLOSION OF GAS
Tkn .-Already Breacbt Oat of th MJat
and Otfaers Still to Come."
'.'.WnxESBAKRE; Pa., Oct. '8. Sfcjrtlj
after S.Vclock Monday afternoon 'a ter
rific explosion of gas "occurred in the
-Dorence mine, "operated by the Lehigh
-Valley Coal .company, which is situated
in the northern part of -the city. It 'is
aot yet known how many men were in
the. mine. The officials are .very reticent
and it is almost impossible to get any in
formation from the levels of the earth
where the rescuers are . at work. At' 8
o'clock five men, all badly, burned, were
brought to the surf ace. .They are:"
Robert Blanchard, aged 19. .
William Miller, aged-21.
George Lafly. . --..',
The rescuers have made very. little
progress in their efforts to reach the
scene of the explosion. . Fire damp made
its appearance shortly after 8 o'clock,
and it was' necessary to do considerable
brattice work which' proceeded very
slowly. There is a strong suspicion also
that the explosion caused a heavy fall in
the old workings and that this will fur
ther retard the work of the rescuers. It
Js admitted by the mine "fln1!? that
there k no kope of finding the engineer
corps alive. They all perished in tke
explosion, and if they were not killed
outright they were suffocated by the
firedamp. The superintendent is of tke
opinion that they wcic killed by the
force' of the explosion and their Bodies
probably burned to a crisp. All bat
eight miners 'and laborers are now
accounted for.- Whether these eight
perished with the engineer's corps is not
known.- Superintendent Chase thinks,
however, that the list of dead will not
number more than seven or eight. These
may be put down as 'fellows:

aged 21, of Wilkesban a

NO FIGHT II THENATION.
Iadiaa CoBulUeaer Brawalaa- Takes
Step to Prevent It.-
' WAsmsaiox, Oct; 8. Commissioner
Browning of the Indian office has taken
prompt and decisive steps to prevent the
Corhett-Fitzsimmous prize fight taking
place in the 'Indian territory.' He has
prepared a letter of insrructions-to Agent.
Wisdom at Muscogee, I. T.-, ' directing
him. to see that the laws are enforced,
and to eject forcibly any .intruders who
may enter the- Indian country for the
purpose of "creating a-" disturbance or of
engaging in anything .that may be 'detri
mental to the Indians. The commis:
sioner says thai the' .statutes of the
United States are". "ample to' cover the
situation and .to prevent the . fight.
The agent will' have at'- .his
back not only the- Indian policy, but all
the United' States troops necessary to
eject the fighters.- The statutes" give
the'United States authority to keep out
of the Indian - territory all -persons
whose presence would be detrimental to
the peace arid prosperity of the Indians'..
The commissioner says there is no doubt
that the presence "of the prize fighters
and the gang that- would follow them
into the.Indian country would. be' very .
detrimental to the Indians; and -'that it
is, therefore", 1 the duty of the Indian
office to keep them out. . - .
