Though on the stage for a nninber of
years, the Mrs. Malaprop of today has
lost 11 .mi of the lustro given to that
wonderful character by this dlstin
guishe I arlist over a quarter of a cen
tury ago. The unconscious ease with
which she so calmly as Mrs. Malaprop
murders tho English language is simply
perfection. iler every gesture, every
facial movement, is eloquent, aud as
for her mal apropos they are so ex
cruciatingly funny aud umntitig as to
keep her audience in continual roars
of laughter. So much of praise has
been given In every city of the country
tbat it bus now become almost Im
possible to say anything that bus not
already been said of Mrs. Drew's Main

They Were Givon a Realistic Exhibi

Like Party Arrived in This City

The Names of the Excursionists.
Members of the New York Coal ox
change, retail doalors, to the number
of about one hundred, reached tho city
lust evening and quartered themselves
at the Wyoming. They arrived on a
special train from Wilkes-Barre where
some of tbe party participated in an
exciting mine adveniure which created
a furore in the latter citv and caused
extra editions of tho New York ovening
papers to bo issued. The circumstance
is givon in last evening's Wilkes-Barre
Leader as follows:
This has been 11 day of (adventure for tho
New York Coal exchange. The party, ac
cording to a prearranged plan, had gone to
visit the Lehigh and Wilkes-llune shaft at
Kouth Wilkes-Barre. Just ns the party
reaohed!tbere,wben n few were nlrcudy In
side nnd others 011 tbe carriage, one of tho
boilers buret, scattering debris far and
near. Iu a few moments the largo fan
supplying those Inside with air was stilled;
its pulso bad ceased to beat and tho life
giving osons had been cut off. The roar
of the explosion WSS terrible and as tho
near by residents rushed from their homes
they saw the air lil led with Hying debris.
Some who stood on tho outside and near
tho boiler room were thrown to tho earth,
but looking upward they saw the hnge
mass of iron Hying in the direction of the
Lehigh Valley nnd reiiUKjivnnia railroad
trucks. It was a dangerous missile, but
luckily it did no harm further than cut
ting tho rails of the Pennsylvania road.
The distance it cut the air was about 1,0'JO
MUCH DttTBUOTtOH WMCOHT.
The sides of brick, the front, rear and
roof of tho boiler house were torn and
shattered by tho concussion, parts of the
same being carried hundieds of feot away.
A number of cars of pea coal standing
Dear the boiler room to bo unloaded were
turned over. There are twelve cylinder
boilers and throe sets of high pressure boil
ers with two in a set, making eighteen
boilers in all. It wan one of the cylinder
boilers that exploded. The cause Is a mys
tery nnd perhaps will never be explained,
as Meehun and Mohalsn, who had charge,
say that everything wuh all right just be
foio the explosion occurred. The officials,
as it happened, were all on hand to pilot
the visitors, and luckily so. They Were
ready iu a moment to direct offairs.
Superintendent Lawall, L, A. Pow
ellson, assistant New York sales agent
of the LebiiHi end Wiiken-Barre Coal
company: President J. ,S. Smoot, of the
New York Coal exchange ; Charles T.
Lvonurd, chairman of tuo excursion
committee, and Joseph Gordon, com
prised a group standing loss than 100
fool from tho boiler at the time of the
explosion. Tho exploded boiier passed
almost directly over their heads, and
Mr. Lfonurd, who was somewhat sep
arated from tho others had to fall for
ward on his fsos to escape instant
It is known that No. 5 shaft is ono
of tho most gaseous 111 the world, and
following the explosion all was excite
ment iu the successful endeavor to save
the miners and a party of twenty New
Yorkers who were imprisoned iu tbe
mine. Tho leader gives particulars of
ibeir escape as follows:
A two Inch boso wns attached to a lire
plug nearest tho shaft nnd a stream of
water sent rushing down. This was to
cool the little air that wns in circulation
from nntiiriil ventilation. Wllliug hands
stood ready around the month of tho shaft
to lender assistance, but wore powerloss.
To go down was only to add more to con
sume the bit of air there was. Attention
wns turned to tho New York visitors, or
part f them, who had descended tho shaft
ju.-t previous to tho explosion. There were
known to bo eighteen of them. Ono car
riage load of niue, and the guide making
ten bad gotten to the foot, aud were wait
ing for the rest of tho party. Tho second
Carriage load of nine and the guide had
gotten part way dew 11 tho shaft when tho
power steam to move the vehicle ou
which they stood wns shut off and there
they stood. Lnckily they stopped near a
small opening through which thoy cut
their way to tho ladder aud climbed to the
surface This party was nccompaniod by
Shnfttnan Patrick Doylo who aided the
party in reaching the surface.
IT WAS A BARD CLIMB
The fow who came up llrst gavo out a
nope that all would reach tho Biirface pro
Tided an explosion of gas was not caused
by some foolish fellow striking a light.
Hat it was a long climb. The shaft is
1,030 feet and tho ladder at best only a
contrivance to got to the snrface as a last
resort, wns dangerous. It is built iu sec
tions of about thirty feet each, and nt the
lop of each section Is a luudtng in sizo
about 3 by 0 feot. Up this 1,000 feet some
ot tho nieu started, und 0110 by ouerenched
the top. They presonted n sorry sight
upon reaching tho surfuce. Thoy wero
pale, nervous and exhausted, with the
perspiration llowiug from every pore.
Here they wero helped out of tho man
bolo by wllliug hands and taken iuto the
engine house, where restoratives were
supplied from the stock carried by the
New York visitors. All were troatod
alike. Alany, however, refused to tako
any of the brandy and n few old meu Baid
no to the proffered assistance.
Of tho New York party who had goue
down lho shaft there wore: A. F. Rice, 11.
Lucas, P. H. Bafferty, w. J. Conyngham,
w. d. stntts, Rstss Bonke, T, F, Farrell,

John Jinnke and U. Lange. Captain flrod
head, of this city, was also down witb tho
As the New Yorkers reached the snr
face thoy found their companions
awaiting them with faces blanched
with tbe intensity of the excitement
und pardonable fear. Mr. Lauge was
almost Bpeechhss when be reached the
surface, and after gasping a request to
wire hie family that he was safe, fainted
from exhaustion and trieht.

Many incidents might be mentioned
In conuection with the affair. A. F.

When tbe party arrived in Scrnntoo
all were talking of their rxperience.
Thoy had intended visltlug four othor
mines In the vicinity of Wilkes-Barre,
but, "Once was enough for thorn."
Last evening the party's special train
carried them from the Jersey Central
station to the lower steel mill, where
soveral hours were spent in iuepcoting
tho process of manufacture.
At 8.110 o'clock tnls morning they

Bethlehem, where a stop was made for
dinner nod to inspect the iron works,

was made iu two hours and thirty miu

their praise for the courtesies sod ex
