Mr. Storri aud his men are deserv

THE WORK OP RESCUE.
About 11 o'clock yesterday morning
tho imprisoned men were first spoken
to. About sixteon feet of fullen coal
was between them and the rescuers.
The work whs pushed as rapidly as
possible aud wheu but seven and one
half feet remained to be cleared a bole

withdrawn Shelter informed the res

right. Tbey bad lights and plenty of
oil and as they had been sparing of
their provisions they were not sutler'
iug to any great extent from hunger.
'The space In which they were im
prisoned was about nine yards
long and the regular width of
a chamber. Tbey bad heard all
along the sounds of the picks and drills
of the rescuers, but as tbey could not
trust their judgement as to how far
away the working was going on, tbey
kept in the farthest part of their cell
for fear a blast would force in the wall
upon them. The Bhift which was at
work when the rescue was accom
plished was in charge of Evan J.
Evans, foreman of the Avondnle mine,
and was made up of William Richards,
William Jenkins, John Davies and
Keese Anthony. To reach the impris

tunnel four feet square through nine

CAUSE OF THE CAVE IN.
Evan J. Eyans, mine foreman at
Avondnle, who superintended the seo
ond search party, was seen by a I'm
tUNK reporter yesterday af'.ernoon.
Mr. Evans is a man who has spsnt tho
greatest part of his life underground,
and when questioned regarding the
cause of the catastrophe, said the pil
lars might have been weakened by age
or decay. Changes in tbe weather
cause tbe pillars to crack and split by

have been caused by either or both of
the reasons stated.
The excitement nt the mine has sub
sided and the Simpson & Watkins'
steam-drill which was in readiness to
be worked from the surface has been
removed. The Delaware, Laokawaua
and Western oflloiils who assisted in
