BCOTTOAI r , Pa. , Jnn , 27. By an explosion
of fire-damp in the mammoth shaft of the H ,
C. Frlcko coke company today eighty sturdy
miners wcro ushered Into eternity and n
number seriously injuicd.
The explosion occurred this morning
shortly after 1) ) o'clock , nnd It Is supposed was
the result of the Ignition of n miner's oil
lamp. The after damp which -followed the
fire-damp explosion suffocated nearly every
workman. A few men , rcall/lng the awful
ettaation , fell to the ground , thereby pie-
venting thog.is stiiking them.
The iiorsons not killed arc In such a critical
condition that tbuir deaths arc momentarily
Up to this writing fifty bodies have been
discovered all without a sign of life. The
fire which bioko out nftcr the explosion was
coon extinguished by the immense fans
which were put in operation. The gas bus
been driven from the nit nnd the work of rc -
cuing the entombed miners commenced The
mammoth plant has fifty-nine ovens , one of
the hrgest plants in the coke icglous , but it
is hard of access It is situated ncir the
United worlts , where an explosion icccntly
dcstrojcd the entire shaft.
The affair has cast a gloom over the entire
coke region , and tonight bundled ? of minors
are ( locking to the sccno of the disaster , of
fering assistance , The appalling loss of llfo
n the Dunbar disaster Is more than over
Ehadovvcd by the dostiuctlon of llfo la this
The news spread throughout the cntiio
coke region \vlthgrcnt rapidity nnd every
body was aw e-strickon.
Coffins have already been ordered for
eighty persons fiom Mount Pleasant under
takers. No ono escaped from the mine in a
condition to tell the story of the disaster.
It b estimated that thcro aio sixty wives
nnd families left wholly dependent on
the charity of the world for sustenance by
this Jlsaster. It Is n fact that they nro al
most penniless , nil the plant not having been
running full force for some time , and work has
been exceedingly scaico.
Everything possible w ill bo done to supply
the widowed mothers and children with the
necessaries of llfo. The Frlcko company
win act liberally in this direction and Master
! Xorkman Peter Wise has scut nn appeal foi
aid to the miners and lokors of the rogloh.
At midnight it is stated that 110 were
killed in the explosion. Sixty bodies have
been taken out so far. The mine Is qgain on
fire and it is feared that all the other bodies
wiU be cremated.
Tins'moinlng n partial story of the disaster
was obtained ! An unexpected How of ga :
was struck and the miners working In the
headings connected with flats Xos.
B nnd 4 wore all lnlledc * 'ThO" ' flro
boss , ns is his duty , had been In the
mine and examined the working places. Ill
runnglcd body lies at ttio morgue. 1 ho only
evidence that ho attended to his duties are
the regular certificates of inspection icccivcd
from him this morning , which guaranteed
that the mines wcro safe. The miners know
that these ceitlllcatcs had been filled out und
went to work. They never returned.
Superintendent Kclghty , who was the
mine inspector In the Dunbar dlstiict
when that horror occuned , was a
the mine when the explosion took
place. IIo immediately called for volunteers ,
nnd , gathering a few about him , descended
the shaft. Before doing so ho notified Gcn-
alSupeiintendciit Dlnch , and that gentle
man ordered all iho mine superintendents in
the region to the sccno. When the volunteers
entcicd the inlno n.sight Impossible , to plctuio
, -Tnct them. Bank ears , mules , and , more
terrible than all , men \\oia piled in a com
pact mass against the ribs or walls of the
coal , and not n living thing was in the wreck-
ace. It was almost as solid as the coal
Itself so torrille was the force of the ox-
plosion. This obstruction was removed with
difficulty and they cnteicd the chamber of
horrors. The first object tltay discovered
after leaving tuojnam entry was a gum boot.
In It was the leg of n man. Further on they
found a human hold , but nowhere in sight
. ' .vas the trunk that had borne it. In
a few minutes , after walking some
distance , surrounded by dangers unseen ,
they found the trunk. The ragged neck ,
\\ithbloodoozlng from it , told tliostorj of
tbo appalling disaster. WoiUlng their way
in , they found bodies strewn along the eang-
way. Ono unfortunate met death while on
his knees in prayer , with hands clasped and
eyes uplifted. Ills body was found in this
position. It was a pathetic picture.
While all this was occurring the people of
the region were concentrating at the scene of
the great disaster. Women and children , rel
atives nnd filends of thounfortunato victims ,
rushed to the mouth of the pit , shrieking and
nobbing , and tbo scene was one never to be
Following them cnmo physicians and un
dertakers from Scottdalo , Mount Pleasant
nnd Grconsbiirg , and after them Father
Lambing of Scottdnlo , who went among the
bereaved with words of sympathj and con
dolence , bosldes urging the men to greitcr
\\orkln the rescue of any who might * bo
nllvo and imprisoned. The services of the
physicians w ere little needed , for every man
in the headings whoio the explosion occurred
was killed. Dead bodies woio brought up
every few minutes , Uvery corp o was cov
ered nnd no ono oven \entu < vd to enquire
whose body It w&s , for they knew tlmt every
one lu that part of the mine nt thu time of the
explosion Aas dead.
Superintendent Ivelghtly was sorely dis
tressed. Ho und been In two other mine dis
asters Dunbar nnd Youngstown but this
was far the worst. Ho said ; "No man liv
ing knows the cause of the accident , and it
will never bo known for a coitnlnty. Not so

that only thoio bodies tu the immediate vi

niliio said that safety lamps were not used in

story developed in n case , before United
States Commissioner Hoyno today. 'Iho
case was that of Gustav Lange , charged
with bolng a diamond smugglbr. In the trial
today It developed that the " prisoner Is Inno
cent , and moreover tint "ho is a man of
prominence In Austria , who fled fiom Vienna
and took an assumed iinmo to save his daugh
ter from disgrace. Ho la Jacob Kronfold ,
formerly an appraiser for the Austrian gov-
otnment in the Verlcehrsbank ( bank of commerce
morco ) at Vienna , and father of Dr. A. Kron-
feld , ono of the most prominent of Vienna
physicians , editor of IhoWlenorModicinischo

treatise upon Dr. Koch's dl
Kionfeld was missed from ) Vienna about
the middle of May , 1890 , under circumstances
from which it was inferred that bo had cither
mot with n serious accitfeclljW-iiad become n
fugitive from his creditors. The latter
suimiso was strengthened by the fact
that bills of exchange amount
ing to 45,000 florins nnd bearing
Kronfcld's signature wcro in circulation in
that city. The disappearance caused a great
commotion , for the missing man was known
to possess a considerable fortune and to be
very well connected. In addition to his work
for' the irovernment ICronllold conducted ,
large transactions for Jo\\ehy houses and
when ho came to Amorici. immediately
after his disappearance from Vienna , ho con

to the conclusion that no duty had been paid
on the goods and , feailng her husband might
bo discharged from his position told her sus
picions to government omcers here , who ar
rested Lango. The story came out when
Kronfold was asked today why ho fled from
Vienna nnd changed his uamo to Qustuv
' To save my daughter , " ho answered ,
had been nvvaro for some tlmo that her hus

Ingnlls will bo occupied by William AKted
1'fclffer of the farmers' alliance , who In the
joint session of the Kansas legislature tomor

to ngrco upon n candidate and that
failure to agree would disrupt ttio organiza
tion went wide of tbo mark. The caucus
was harmonious lust night nnd on each ballot
the name receiving the lowest vote was
dropped from the list until the cholco was
made. Humors of r. defection in tlio vote in
the house today likewise proved un
founded The proceedings of both houses
vvcroof an orderlj character. In the house

Republic veterans throughout the state for
re-election of Ingalls went over under the
