Particulars of the Shooting of Two

Tbe Bcranton liepublican of yesterday has
A crisis has come la the condition of mining
' aflairs in this region. Yesterday a party of
miners, thirty in number, were returning to
their homes after their day's labor at Brings'
shaft. Owing to the hostility manifested to
ward them by the miners at Flyde l'ark, they
were accompanied by a detachment of soldiers,
and, in addition to thin, ten of the laborers were
armed with Remington rifles. They bad pro
ceeded on their way without molestation until
they reached FellowD' corner, on the old Hamp
ton road, at which point a crowd of about two
hundred Wsh miners and their wives had as-
' sembled, who commenced hooting and calling
tbe laborers "blacklegs," and every filthy term
which their nasty vocabulary afforded. The
men proceeded along quietly, however, without
saying a word, or even looking to the right
hand or the left. The hooting was immediately
followed by a single stone being thrown, which
took no effect. Two more followed, one of
them striking a man named John Cornelius on
the shoulder, and the other Michael Kairas on
The moment tbe second stone was thrown
one of the soldiers levelled his musket, and the
assailant's arm had not regained its position at
his side when he fell with a bullet through his
heart. The other assailant was standing a few
paces in the rear, and he also fell dead, pierced
with three buckshot In the groin. Ttiere was
but one shot fired, the double eff ect being owing
to tbe character of the ammunition used by the
militia. The name of the man shot through
the heart is Benjamin Davis, and the name of
tbe other Daniel Jones. Davis was a member
of tbe Welch Calvinistic Church at this place,
and was popularly known as "dpurgeon," owlBg
to his liabit of indulging in local preaching. As
on as the shot was fired tbe most dreadful
consternation seized tbe crowd, wbo imme
diately took to their heels, levelling fences in
tbeir headlong career and yelling in the most
hideous manner, and In a moment there was
not a sonl to be seen but the two victims lying
by the fence. In the meantime the laborers
inarched quietly on to tbeir .hemes in Bellevue.
The laborers showed an amount of forbear
ance not expected from men in their situation,
whose lives have been threatened, and who have
been stoned and hooted, and exposed to the
rage, bate, and insults of mobs of rufllans, be
cause trev bad the courage to resume work to
keep themselves and families from starving.
They did not use their muskets at all even when
some of their number were struck with stones,
and would in all probability have passed on
without retaliation. Tbe militia, however, Were
under tbe most positive orders, and the man
was simply discharging his duty when he fired
nuon tbe assailants. It seems to have been tbe
opinion for the last few days of the miners that
the militia would not interfere even if they did
assault the laborers, and that they were hero in
the character of "ghosts merely. This gave
them conrage, and they thought they would try,
and the result is known.
The bodies of the two men were Immediately
taken to Co-operative Hall attended by an im
mense crown, oi an classes ana conditions, out
chiefly consisting of miners wbo kept up a con
stant clamor for the blood of the laborers. A
Coroner's inquest was then attempted to be
held, and Alderman Jones issued a warrant for
the arrest of Michael Kairns. he being one of
the men struck bv the mob with a stone. Tbe
warraut was put in the bands of Officer Tomp
kins, who, not finding Kairns, proceeded by
virtue of his own authority to arrest William
Garretv. President of the Laborers' Association.
This piece of outrage was witnessed by about
2000 people, who crowded around, calling for the
life of the prisoner, who was every moment In
danger of being torn to pieces to satisfy the
fury of the mob. Mr. (Jarrety was taken before
the Mavor and Alderman, who. to appease the
mob. sent him under euard away to YVilkes-
barre. The corpses were then sent home, and
the inauest adiourned until to-morrow. The
most intense excitement prevailed in nyde
Park until a late hour, aai an additional force
of military was ordered to quarter there to pre-
vent any disturDance.

At the bead of the Avenue Kapp the scene
was a terrible one. several nouses were Durn-
ing, and tbe rattle of exploding cartridges was
incessant: lirsi mere wouia oe a uriiuant maze
and then a loud explosion. From the base of
tbe cartridge factory there shot upward a fearful
mass of fire and smoke.
The Wounded and Dying.
Hundreds and thousands of cartridges, crack
ing and rattling, one after the other, mingled
with terrific shrieks from the wounded and
frightened. Nearly all those injured were
women and children. The few men employed
in the building were either killed or fearfully
wounded. Mutilated forms were to be seen on
every side groaning and writhing with agony.
Despair and Terror.
Across the great place of the Invalides, up
and down tbe neighboring streets ran the terror
stricken multitude, shrieking out tbe names of
mothers, wives, and sisters. I saw aged women
wringing their bands in despair at the sudden
and overwhelming calamity which had befallen
them. Uncertainty of the situation Increased
the terror everywhere.
A Frightful 6pectacle.
For a distance of several hundred yards your
correspondent assisted in placing upon stretch

Lieut-Commander Barclay left the Resaca
on the bth with four men. Calm weather pre
vailed until the boat cleared the uuit of Han

On Friday tbe weather was fair until four
o'clock in the afternoon, when a squall struck
the boat, and it was capsized and emptied. Tbe
oars were recovered, and while attempting to
save tbe mails a seaman, Charles Bramball,
sank, it was supposed be was seized by a
shark, as there were plenty about the boat.
After struggling with the waves for four hours
tbe officers and men righted the boat. All hands
bad been in the water up to the neck. They
rowed amid intense suffering twenty-four hours
after tbe wreck, then lashed themselves to the
oars and plunged into the surf.
They nearly perished, but finally reached the
shore, where they found a man in a hut on the
beach, and there passed the night. Next morn

tbe Ansell Gibbs, a large whaling vessel, after
having spent several years of almost unparal
leled danger and hardship in endeavoring to
discover the northwest passage, unforeseen
circumstances led him to give up very reluctantly
his search sooner than he bad anticipated. On
his return, with the aid of several influ
ential gentlemen, he succeeded in seca
ring from the Government a vessel,
together with ample means to fit out
another expedition. This vessel is a splendid
craft oi tour hundred tons measurement,
schoner-rlgged, with most powerful engines.
Every improvement which could be suggested

Arctic voyagturs has been perfected In order to
make her as worthy and comfortable as possible

MATTERS AT WASHINGTON.
Army and Navy Orders
The Treaty Investigation.
Special Dispatch to The Evening Telegraph.
W ASniNOTON, May 19 charsres havinir henn made
In various quarters that the copy of the Treaty or
Washington which found lis way luto the newspa
pers was given out either by Senator Morton of
Senator Fenton, both of those gentlemen arose In
the Senate to-day and stated that they were ready
to go before the special committee of the Senate
and be examined on tne subject. It was suirirnsted
that all the ttenators were furnished wltn conies in
advance by the State Department.
1 he Senate went into executive session. The un
derstanding Is, however, that all the Senators who
had advance copies will voluntarily go before the
committee to explain what they did with them.
This fact only complicates the case more, for the
general belief is that the treaty got out through
some Senator's copy having been stolen. Many
Senators now express regret that the matter was
started, and that It has been pushed so far. It la
tne intention or the chairman or tne committee to
go ahead and investigate the manner in which the
protocol got out. The Senate has finally gone to
work on the treaty, and it is thought will go ou with
it until It is disposed of.

IIypk Park, Pa., May 19. At a meeting held here
this morning it was voted to resume work by a large
minority, aud will resume at once, at the company's
Kxtraordlnary Session of the Senate
Washington, May 19. The Senate met at 10 otlock.
Tbere not more ihnn twenty-four members present at
tbe opening ot the proceedings,
Mr. Harlun remarked tnat it appeared from ths discus
sion yesterday and day before that oertain advance copies
of v. Hat portioned to be the treaty of Washington were
communicated to members of the Senate before the offi
cial document waa communicated to tnis body on the lUttt
The Vice-President reminded the Senator that the
Annate had not yet promulgated ths fact that any such
trealy bad neen communicated to the Senate.
Mr. Harlun begaed pardon. He thought that the Senate
by its recent proceedings bad so declared.
Mr. bumnor said too resolutions adopted yesterday ia
open Senate advertised to the world that the Senate had.
in its possession tk official copies ef the troaty.
Mr. liar Ian remarked that it had been stated in debate
that certain papers bad been privately communicated ia
limited number te (Senators, and that tbe text of those
papets was similar to tbe papers printed in the oonQdence
or tbe Senate.
It was also staled that the Assistant Secretary of State
had iniormed tbe committee oc tbe exact number of
copies printed by the Department of State, and was able
to account for the disposition or each ot them. It was
also saidHiy members of ttio Committee .on Investigation,
that it they were permitted to proceed in the line tbey
had adopted, tbe disclosure of tbe document would be
traced to a certain member of the Senate. He supposed
every one know that tbe Committee on Foreign Relations
are in confidential tenus with the (State Department, and
that if any Senators had copies the members of that com
mittee were lurnished with tiiera.
Tbey all concurred with hiln in the opinion that it would
be proper to call each Senator who was supposed to have
bad an advance copy of tbe paper, that be might be ex
amined belore the committee. He mads the suggestion
in order to relieve the delicacy of any Senator ia tbe
matter. Tbe members ol that com in it toe, as far as he
bad conferied with them, regarded ibis aa a thing proper
to bo done.
Mr. Morrill (Me.) suggested that there were acvera
other copies furnished outside of those placed ia tbe
bands of ths members of the Committee on Foreign Rela
tions. Therefore tbe examination should bo attended to
all Senators wiio bad obtained advance copies. Several
voices, "Certninlv. that should be done."
Mr. l enton said: I am glad my friend from the oom
mutee (Mr. Harlan h a n sde the request that Senators
wbo w re furnifhed with advance oopieaof t ha Treaty of
Washington should be sui uiirted by tie investigation
ccnimntee, with a view to tbeir vindieation, as it ailords
one an oppurtuni'y to make a statement, and to suggest
tor mysell, and so far aa 1 have a right lor others, that
every member ot tbe Heua'e niay appear before this eom
mitteefor tbe same purpose, Irsad Irom tbe tttriM of
this city, in an arho e ref. rringtj this investigation, a1
follows: "During the last two days Mr. Carpenter and
Mr. Crakling bave been bold in declaring that if the
Senate Wuulrt innst noon its rights ana eiertits authority
the committee would ta-teo ths responsibility upon a
Senator, and tbey bad not hesitated in a semi publio
manner almost to point to Mr. Kenton, saying in the lan
guage of Nathan to David, ' 1'hou art the man.' H If tbe
Senator from New Vrk, and tne Senator troin Wiscon
sin were present, I should ask them to state to the Senate
whether in an official, serai-othcial, or any other manner,
they bad made a ataterrent or insinuation that would
warrant luch publioa.ion. But although they
were out of tbeir seats at this moment,
I cannot allow the occasion to pass without
sating a word. I will simply state the facts. I arrived,
here on Wednesday, the iota inst. I was not favored with
an advanoe copy of the treaty, nor did I have or see aa ad
vance copy, or aey ether oopy, except as it was read at the
Secretary's desk, until Thursday afternoon about 8
o'clock, when tbe Senate copy wvs placed in my hands,
full ten hours after it appeared ia the Tribune Therefore
the thought by any one having for information as mem
bers of the com m t tee had, that I bad anything to do with
or any knowledge of the disclosure to the Tribunt, would
have been entirely unwarranted by tbe circumstances
and most unkind. The insinuation, without the least
shadow of iu titied suspicion, that 1 had anything to do
with it would bave been as cowardly sa base.. The positive
cbarge would have been no less infamous than wanton and
ridiculons. Iam lree to say that I should not thus char
acterize the matter had it not oome to me from other
source than tbe futriot that an attempt had been made to
connect me ia soma way with this transaction. Ia con
clusion, I beg to ask that every Senator have ths oppor
tunity to supear betore tbe committee and vindicate him
self under such forms and solemnities aa the committee
Mr. liarlaa moved that the Senate proceed to the con
sideration of the executive business.
Mr. Morton said be desired to make a statement. He
bad been informed of an attempt to connect his name
with a violation ot the obligation o. secrecy.
Mr. Trumbull was sorry the chairman oi the investi
gating committee was not present, but aa a member of
that committee be desired to say that so far as the exami
nation had proceeded there waa no in'ormatioa from any
touroe jpoiniiug to or indicating that any
Senator had furnished a copy of ths
treaty. No one ba I said or intimate before
tbe committee that either the Senator from New York,
or tbe Senator from Indiana, or any other Senator had
given to any outside party a copy ot tbe treaty.
Mr. Sumner, as a meiubor of the select committee, con
filmed Mr. Tiumbnii'a statement.
Mr. Morton remarked that the Senator from Wisconsin
(Mr. Carpenter!, tbe chairman et tne committee, bad
stated in tbe most pointed aad significant manner tnat
objection bad been made to tbe examination, apparently
from fear of exposure, and that if it were allowed to go
on some Senator weuld certainly be implicated.
Mr. Trun.bull repeated that netbing of tbe kind ap
peared belore tbe committee
Mr. Morton resumed, saying that one Senator intimated
that the copy same irom him (Mr. Morton), aa he at tbe
iroper tune would be prepared to niske a foil showing,
ie would now cont nt hiniselt by saying that the intiiua
titn was as atrocious and cowudly falsehood. Tbere waa
not a circumstance of which he bad knowledge that
could rostain it. It waa made out of tbe whole oioth.
'1 he ice-President remarked ttat tbe Senator waa not
now in him srat.
Mr. Mi rton said he did not intimate that the Senator
originated the story It bad been told to him. He hoped
that all the beuutois would be questioned belore the com
mittee, when he could make a lull statement. He desired
to do so.
Mr. Sumner said tbere was no testimony before the
committee in the remotest degree sustaining such allege-
"j'l'r. Vi ileon remarked that he aaw ia the Chronicle a
statenient to the tlteci that an advanoe oopy of the treaty
as placed in his noos, and be wished merely to say
thatbebsd not ben lurun-hed with an auvruce copy.
He received bis t o:y on Thursday, the day alter the
treaty waa tian.iuiu. o, in tbe afternoon, at tbe aa je time
copies were delivered to othnr M uatoro.
Mr. Eomunds saia th.it this scene illustrated tbe pro
priety of continuing the examination of witnes-ea until
tbey tell the truth, li tbe wii nesaes tell the truth they
would all kuow where tae treaty ome trow, and bona tors
would be exonerated or not, as (he case uiigut be. I bey
never wouiu know tne truth uutil somebody waa obliged
Mr, Morton remarked that tbe suspicion was directed
against bim on this lioor. He waa not, to be driveu from
doing what waa niilit bemuse of au intimation from a
Mr. Kdinunds thought he had beirl lntimationa in a
good many quarter loisiriLg to more uian one heuttor.
Mr. 11 oae voted in favor of the invei-tiKation. As ons
