intense excitement and it was not

that it imperiled the lives of m my
human beings, yet no ono was injured.
The boilers were eighteen in number,
built iu nests of four, and without
warning one of the nests burst with a
terrible forcd blowing the boiler houso
in all directions, and carrying the
smoke stack nearly 000 yards away,
lauding it on the main track of the
Lebigh Valley railroad, delaying traffic
for nearly an hour.
The head of one cf the boilers crashed
through a car of coal on the track,
demolishing it and throwing threo
other oars off tho track. A party of
the New York retail coal dealers hero
on u tour arrived at the shaft about u
half hoar before the explosion occurred
and some thirty of them descended tho
shaft jnst Lefore the accident took
place. The fan was stopped and the en
gineer could not hoist the mine carriage
again, but they managed to escape by
climbing up the ladders a distance of
some fifty feet and were landed on the
surface in safety. There were no loss
than 300 men at work in the pit at Ul timo
the explosion took place, but they
escaped through the various gangways
to a place of b tfety and were finally all
saved by mesas of ladders that run
from the bottom to the top, while
others walked out through the open
ings in other parts -f the inino.
Among the New Yorkers who ds
cender the mines were: John Had
dock; C. P. Friend, Robert Btinis, F.

that they exploded when cold water
was forced into them. There were
four fireraon attending to the boilers
at tiie time and their escape from be

THE SMITH HERESY CASE.
Hearing in the Anneal Begun Before
the Presbyterian General As
sembly at Saratoga.
Sauatooa, May 21 The interest in
tho case of tho appeal of Professor
Smith from the findings of the Cincin
nati presuyt"ry and the Ohio synod on
charges of heresy was early manifested
this morning by a larg attendance of
apectators at tho meeting of tbo i'r s
bvteriun General AsFcmbly, Tho
jnlicial committee asked to have
ibeir report on the case returned
to them for slight change. This
was granted, and taj proposed change
was made, eflsoting the rule for the
hearing of members of the Assembly.
It was provid d that tho assembly
shall be heard upon roll call, threo
minutes being granted to each mem
ber. Dr, Young, the former modera
tor, protested agai:.st such waste of
lime. He stated that this rule of last
year cans d tho assembly to lose a
whole day and halt Despite this
ol j c:oa the ruin wul adopted.
Hotieswaa read that the hoars givsn
to the sy"uod of Ohio hud been appor
tioned as follows: To the R v. Charles
Tow:ieud, of Cleveland, seven min
utes; to the Rev. G.-orgo L. Kulb, D.
D., of Bellefout nine, tea minutes;
Thomas McDougall, Cincinnati, twen
ty minutes; the U;v. William Powoll,
of Athens, sevon minutes; tbe Itev
Arthhr C. Ludlow, of Clsveland. six
uiinutoa, and Thomas McDougall, ten
minutes,
At 10.10 tho ass mbly was consti
tuted us a court and the reading of the
records in the c;se proceeded with.
These pap rs contain tho record of the
synod, tiie notice of appeal and the ap
peal of Professor Smith.
After the reading of these pipers,
the assembly began to euterlaiu the
appeal, and argument was began by
I'rofessor Smith. The rending of the
full records was waived except so fur
as they were going to le used in the
urgumeut. Professor Smith slated that
he proposed only to argue Bix of the
grouuds of appeal instead of twelve,
The argument at the stnrt concerned
the existence of prejudice in the .mem
bers of the Presbytery whioh originally
trh d aim.
Professor Smith sought to show that
the records of the original trial proved
thut the judicatory was prejudiced.
Tiie doolriue oi the inspiration alleged
in the charges, was contended to bo
one not taught in Scripture or in the
confession, nud iu fact to be contrary
to the doetrrno of tfte confession of
faith of tho church. Tho inerrancy
of the original nulographs of Scrip
ture was claimed to be entirely
outside of ihe doctrine of inspiration
and Independent of it. It was fur
ther shown llut tho doctrine of inerr
ancy has a tbelogloal origin, not a
Biblical origin, and that the confession
as it stands gives no support to the
position of the prosecution. Professor
Smith asserted that the Washington
assembly evaded the issu raised by
doctrine of the confession, in failing to
declare that the t-criptures not only
"are" the word of God, but "uru" in
errant, GALVIN'S 5UB SEEKERS,
