aid in his heHrty fashion, "just as we
have bsen going until a quorum voUs
upon the question of closing debate,
and remains until the vote on the pass
age of the lull is taken."
How many days the Blao 1 bill will
occupy this week cannot, of course, be
definitely stat-d now, but its supprt
ers eonfidently expect that it will be
out of tho way by Tuesday night at the
furthest. Iu answer to a question why

London, Feb. 18 The Daily News

will be a good demand for silver for

The Financial News says: "We are

TBI CONFESSIONS OF FRANCE
Franch was arrested in the begin

sion, there were two bombs, he ex
plained, of which only one exploded.
For some reason which he could not
understand the other failed to go off.
Possibly there was some defect in its
coustruction. He carried them into
the theater iu his sash, in the folds of
which the two infernal machines were
easily concealed, for they were of small
size. Taking his place in the second
gallery, Franch waited quietly until
the opera was approaching its con
lusion and all eyes wero on the stage.
Then ho moved out into the passage,
where nobody was likely to observe
him, and taking the bombs, 'one in each
hand, he hurled them with all his force
lown into the center of the closely
packed stalls, where the bourgeois were
siting. In the confusion and panic
which followed the explosion, Franon,
who was already clear of tho seats, had
no difficulty in escaping from the thea
ter, but knowing that the police, being
BOgnlsant of Ins anarchistic ideas.
would be sure to arrest him, he made at

Rescuing Party at Plymouth Have
Given Up the Thought of Find
ing the Entombed Miners.
Wll.KES- Daiike, Feb. 18, A visit to
the scene of the mine horror at Ply
mouth todav by the United Tress rep
resentative disclosed the fact til h t ther-
has been no cessation of t-lfort ou he
half of the reseuers who are digging
for the entomhod men. Bsing Sunday,
the vicinity of the mine WAS crowded
fnousanda ot people from narly every
mining town in ths valiey had come to
take a look at thu scene of the disaster.
Many of them were miners employed
in tiie various collisries hereab.ints,
and the general opinion among the
most experienced was that the thirteen
victims would usver bo rescued alive
A wild hone was borne iu the breasts
of the victims' friends last night when
word came that a supply ot blankets
had been ordered to the shaft, but it
soon died out upon investigation. The
order was given merely us a precau
tionary measure, in case the rescuers
should come upon the doomed men
unexpectedly. A'l day today the res
cuers worked csaselssly, gang succeed
ing gang at regular intervals. The
task is not only hard and dangerous,
but positively discouraging. No sooner
do the men gain twenty feet or so, than
the top settles down again and they are
compelled to retreat. In this way only
a few t-et at a time can be gamed and
little progress is apparent to the casual
observer. Tlietrescuing party have al
ready had many close calls and the pre
iiction is freely made by the old miners
that more lives will be sacrificed be
fore the vietims are reached.
Although the air is tilled with ru
mors of every description, the simple
fact is that no one, not eveu the otfi
einls, know when the men will be
reached. The work of tunnelling
through the fall is of such a uatnre
that no cilciilations can be mule
Were the rescuers driving through
solid coal or rock the exact hour when
they would reach a given point could
easily be ascertained But with a mass
of louse coal in front of th m, mi l a
roof which threatens at any moment
to crash down upon and bury them out
of sight forevor. the men find it hard
to foretell the result with any degree
Superintendent Ivlwards, who has
charge of the night, shift of rescuers,
did a heroic net this afternoon, at the
same time taking. his lite in his own
hands, He crawled through nu open
place situated near the roof on the
plane in the Gay lord mine ou his
hands and knees with only a safety
lamp banging by his sido to give
what little light ther could bs had.
He managed to get over 300 feet fur
ther into the mine than any other per
son who has so far dared to venture.
Gn returniug tonight he said that he
wiib of the opinion he had been near
the spot where the men were supposed
to be, hut others think that he no
doubt passed over the bodies a he was
on top of the debris and tho men un
der. It is reported late tonight that the
resonera have reached a place iu the
shaft 350 feet from the foot of the
plane, and they litid the cross-headings
almost clear. Five brave miners at
once went into this portion later on,
and are now making a thorough search
for the men. Superintendent Kosser,
who has charge of the dav shift, is of
the opinion that they will find the men
very soon if they are in the place where
ther are supposed to be.
Superintendent MacFarlan snys from
his, knowledge of the disaster the men
are, beyond doubt, dead, and he can
see no chance where they had any ave
uue to escape from under the fall,

Mr. Wright Discucoes the Salary
Suits and , Makes Bitter Remarks
in Reference to Secretary Hayes.
Philadelphia., Feb. 18. A. W.
Wright, ex member of the general ex
ecntive board of the Knights of Labor,
wss seen today and questioned in re
gard to the circulnr which General
S-cretary Hayes has issnsd to tho order
concerning the suits for salary which
have been entered by the ex-general
officers. Mr. Wright said that it was
true that Mr. Powderly, Mr. Devlin
and himself had entered suits as stated
but if any harm were done by giving
publicity to the tact the blame must
be borne by Mr. Hayes, who had lor
some purpose of his own oboseu to
make it public.
The pretense that be and Powderly
and Devlin wore pressing for tho
money due them for the purpose of in
juring the order was untrue, Mr.
Wright said, as be believes it to be
perfectly solvent and able to pay the
claims. Mr. Wright said some severe
things about Mr. Hayes, aud iu cou
clnding IBB interview, said that tho
talk about ma-inf actureis bicking the
ex-eneral officers was simply nonsen
sical, as was also tho stulf about try
