COUNCIL DID NOT MEET.
INTENDED TO CONSIDER RIP
Mr. Keller Had a Resolution He In
tended to Introduce Opposing
the Ripper Clause.
A meeting of the common council
was called for last night to consider
the amendments to the "ripper" bill,
which have been prepared by tho coun
cllmanlc legislative committee, and
such a meeting would have been held
had not Messrs. Alworth. Palno and
'McDonald picked up their hats and
stolen out Into the hall Just as Clerk
Lynott began to call the roll.
On account of tho sudden leaving of
these three gentlemen, there was no
quorum and the members who re
mained were obliged to adjourn. Mr.
Keller,. who Is a member of the com
mittee, was a little late In getting to
the meeting. This may have prompted
the three members above mentioned
to break tho quorum, but bo that as
It may they made no effort to enter
the council chamber again when Mr.
Keller arrived, which was Just as tho
roll was half called.
Mr. Keller was prepared to spring a
llttlo sensation In case tho meeting was
held and he was a little bit disap

If passed, would have placed the coun

The explosion Is believed to have
been duo to tho filing of a body of gas
which had accumulated In an obi
chamber whlcli Maehloto foimeily
worked, and Into which he had gone
with his naked lamp on his cap to look
for some car numbers which he had
left theie when he tvent Into the new
chamber. His laborer, Gelnsowlcz, was
a stranger to the mine, this being his
fli st day there, and he lemalned In tho
working by himself while Muchinte
was after the numbers.
TORN' AND BUR.VKD.
Suddenly a blinding fla.sh of lire
bui st past him nnd a concussion which
throw him upon tho ground followed.
Ho was burned nnd bruised, and
though painfully Injured he was not
rendered unconscious, and calmly
awaited the coming of help. Mnehloto
was tho explosion's fated victim. He
was tossed and torn by Its fiulous
force; his body mangled, burned and
blackened, and when found some two
hours later was scarcely recognizable.
Down the main roadway when tho
explosion occurred, yet some distance
away, were Haggerty anil Corsey, the
runners, who were bringing In honio
cars for use In Machloto's chamber.
They wero caught by the outer edge
of the explosion's forco and wcie only
slightly burned. Their greater injuties
were tho brulf.es sustained in being
hurled down by the heavy concussion
which ensued. They -wore the llrst
brought out of the mine, and after
getting attention at the weigh office
were able to walk to thulr homes, with
tho assistance of fellow-workers.
The point whore the disaster oc
curred is fully a mile from the foot
of the shaft In a noitherly direction
toward tho Storr's mine at Prlceburg,
and was but a short distance from tho
workings of the bitter mine. It was
beneath that :art of the First ward
known as the "bush." and nearlv six
hundred feet below the surface. That
part of the Cayuga's workings Is Just
being extended and but few niun are

When tho explosion occurred tho
shock was felt upon the surface quite
visibly, and at once great alarm wus
occasioned. Its force was also felt to
some extent at the foot of the shaft.
Somehow the word got abroad that a
terrible disaster had occurred and that
nnywhere from twenty to thirty had
been killed and a great many Injured.
Naturally such reports excited the
people, mid theie was a largo throng
gathered about the Cayuga breaker
eager for news.
Tho assembling of uiliia ambulances
and the calling of physicians also add
ed to the alarm. After somo time the
word came out that seven or eight
wero injuied and one missing, and
the anxiety which was nrevlonsiv mm.
pant wns now greatly assuaged, yet
many weie distressed nud eager to
learn who tha victims of the accident
Meanwhile the mine oillclals were not
negligent of tho duties devolving on
them. District Superintendent Phillips
came to tho mine shortly after the ac
cident. Ho at once-, In view of tho pos
sibility of a serious calamity from the
reported force of the explosion, sum
moned a number of foremen and Hie
bosses from other.s of the company's
mines, and prepared to go down and
investigate the extent of tho accident
and rescue 'the men who had boon
its victims. In this woik he was as
sisted by Inside Foi email Harry d.

and E. J. Mnloney, that the league
was going to settle with these men,
so as to prevent the cayes from over
being tried. If such an Impression has
gone abroad, I desire to correct It.
NO INT12NTION TO SKTTLK.
"The league has no intention, what
ever, of Fettling cither thee cases or
any othois which we now have pend

ant o because of the Illness of Mr.
O'UiIen, who assured us that ho was
