The following letter from Secretary
IMalne was rocelved at Augusta, Malno, by
My Dear Sir: I have your favor of 11th
lust. Yeu are in error in supposing that
I am oppesod te sugar being admitted froe
of duty. My objection is net te froe sugar,
but te the propesod method or making it
froe. Ilin the pending tariff bill sugar Is
placed upon the froe list, we give te certain
conntriesa froe market for ?9j,O0O,00O of
thelr products while they are net asked te
open their markets te the free admission of
a single dollar or American products. We
ought te have in exchange ter froe sugar
from certain countrles a free market
for breadstuff's and previsions, besides
various fabrics from all parts of our
country. In slieit, we ought te secure in
return rer free sugar a market for $60,000,
000 or $70,000,000 worth of our own pro
ducts, it will net requlre reciprocity
treaties te secure this great been. The
tariff bill can contain all the necessary
conditions. The legislative power Is able
te secure tbe desired end. Within
the last twenty years we have
given the countrles south of us tree
admission ler nearly SGO.000,000 worth
of their products without leeching a
penny's advantage In exchange If sugar
be new made unconditionally free, we
shall have given te the Latin American
countries froe admission for 8150,000,000 of
thelr products. It is time, I think, te leek
out for seme reciprocal advantages. We
area very lleli nation, but net rich enough
te trade en this unequal basis. In great

At 7 o'clock Monday mernlnir the tnirnr
turned In at the mines, the smaller gang
drifting off te the left, while the larger
drifted te the right, and descended seme
800 feet from the surface, and at least u
mile from the openiug. These two drifts
nre connected, but the connection is from
the main stem, seme hair mile from the
entrance The mine, It soems, had been
somewhat troubled wlih water, and an air-
shaft had been drilled from the surface te
thejuncttire of the right and loll shafts,
whero the water seemed te be most aim ml
As the miners branched off from this
point they knew that an air bole had been
drilled there that had net yet broken Inte
the mine, but they did net knew tl at the
shall was te be broken I u en Monday. A
miner, named Kerwin, had been left In the
right drift near- where that branch Inliiml
the mine's exit, and lu the course or Ills
labors breke into the poipendicular shall.
The moment this was broken into u Heed
or water gushed out, and' Kerwin and a
man named L.ndy standing by, yelled out
Ter someone te save the men in the rltrht
drill, as the water was pouring down the
hill in a stream and he feared they would
be drowned. Yeung Da id Hays, w he had
seen the affair, leaned forward at the call
and turned down the loll drill lu a deluge
of water te warn his endangered comrades
below. Just as he passed the air shaft that
bad been broken into thu rush or waters
had changed te the ugly rear or a flood,
w hlch blanched the cheeks or tbe men who
steed behind and tow aids the light.
The Hew of water had changed te a deadly
vnlume or fire damp, and, as young
Hays swung down the shaft, a flash of
mazing iigui snu m rough the shall from
end te end, it seemed. The during youth
carried an open burning miners' lamp In
his hat, and lie had hardly taken a step be
yond the rearing shaft when the spaik ig
nited a reservoir of the deadly fluid fire
damp that had already accumulated, and
he sank u cerpse near the men who he had
hoped te save and whom he certainly
deemed. In an instant uu unquenchable
lire sprang up lu the nlne feet vein Just
between the main entrance and en llie
right drift, forever shutting In the 32 men
Peer old David Hays, the r.ither or the
missing here, crared by llie death or Ills
seu, dashed iulothesulphurouHsmokoaud
strangling llre damp, only te fall blindly
by the slde of Ids son, ami te be drawn out
an hour later, with James Shcarn, both
recognized only by their wives.
The lire, fanned by air from the main
unit anu from the fatal shall itself, seen
sprung Inte uu awful conlbigratlen.
The miners from tlm left ilrift. i.umiiuvI
blackened and bruised, but safe, and they
tell a fearful story of the scene. Just bo be bo
yeng the blazing coal en the right could be
seen a score of terrible faces walled In by
Haines that no man could pass. Jlravn
hearts and willing hands worn net wanted
en the outside of the mine, and Clerk
Cook, of the miue,with thomlue Inspector,
Ke.ighley headed a party or 100, who en
tered the main shall and, alter grouping
en for u quarter or a mile, at least, were
driven back again and again by the de idly
gas, only te recever breath I'er a moment
mid again pluuge in. 'Ihey finally caine
upon two bodies, and tiiey were brought
te the opening erthe initie. They pieved
te be theso efShcaru and Hays llieelder.
The volunteer corps worked steadily
from neon until Inte Monday night, with
neiestilt but the two dead ubove named,
and each trip but brought a decper despair
te theso above, and showed there was no
hepe and no oue ullve below. The corps
or 100 was changed again and again, us
each exhausted squad staggered te the
outer air. but all in vain. One man, Kelly,
who had entered several times, finally,
irem sheer exhaustion, fell into nil open
pit, and wus drawn out fatally Injured.
At midnight thu smoke and gas from the
right shall neured tin the main eIL In n
broken volume, and after trials almost be bo be
yend human ciidiirauce tbe rescuing party
gave up nil hopes of recovering their com
miles' bodies from that ciitrancenud turned
their attention te the I'erguseu minoeno
and a-lialf miles away. They are striving
te penetrate from that mine, biitthn llanies
and smoke balk their overy effort.
The universal and unwilling verdlct from
tbe old miners about the shall Is that the
entombed men have cither been killed out
right bv llie explosion or laler by suffoca
tion. The latter seems te be the mere prob
able, at least In part, as sounds were heard
from the entombed men as late as 1 o'clock
Monday afternoon. Theso grew weaker
and weaker, hew ever, and half an hour
later even the most hopeful or rescuers
could hear nothing but Ills own heart
throbs. They men say that had they known the
shaft was te be broken Inte they would
never liaie entered the miue, as either
water or gas would surely have followed,
bIiice, lu tliese regions, gas always comes
from the upjicr shale. The owners, hew
ever, and, in lact, seme of the men them
selves say It was an accident, pure and
simple, thai could neither have been
avoided nor atoned.
The mlnes are owned by the Dunbar
Furuace company, and the owners are ull
Kastrrn men, ami employ about 150 men.
Charles Parish, of Wllkesbarre, was pres
ident, and F, A, Hill, of Durbar, is super
intendent. The latter seemed perfectly
conversant with thu mines, though the
men say tire damp lias been mero plentiful
in this region lately.
