Wilkes BAttBi.Feb.90 At 7 o'clock
this evening there is little or no change
in the situation at the Gaylord mine,
t ie outlook for reaching the entombed
men at an early hour is anything but
encouraging. There is but little pro
gress or headway made by th rescuing
p.irty though they are working hard to
reach the fatal spot. How soon this
will be is hard to tell from the looks of
things in the mine at present.
Mine Inspector Williams has but
little to say regarding the catastrophe,
but he is of the opinion that there are
many hundred feet of debris yet to be
removed. It is not generally known to
auy outsider, but it is learned from
miners who are posted that fulls con
tmue to occur and hugli rocks come
down fifty to 100 feet sijuare, Which In
terferes with the workers almost daily.
At the mines they say, "We expect
to reach the men almost any hour,
but this is not believed bv many of the
miners who worked there and are fa
milisr with the situation of affairs.
Canvass stretchers are in readiness
but it is not known by anyone, as yet,
whether they will ever be uied.

kin of having committed an indecent

The two principal witnesses of the day
loseph H. Itankin, husband of Mrs
Rankin, and Mr. Auckerman. The de-
fenss put on a number of oharacter
witnesses and the day closed with the

witness for the prosecution His tin-

could obtain the let of the Lehigh
Valley, before the colisent of the Jersey

The witness declared that Mr, Mc

Valley alone would DO useless and ab
surd. Subsequently the Reading's ex

cause of Reading's downfall was large
ly due to the Lehigh Valley's lease
which, instead of making a yearly
profit of 11.000,000 as he (Mr. McLo 11
supposed, would be because there had
been an actual loss of $1,500,000. The
witniss further stated that Mr Mc

or the lease would not have been made.
