Sonerprop, Pe., September 6—Great
excitement here. In consequence of the
burning of a beaker at. Avondale mine,
Plymouth, about twenty miles south of
this city. There are two hundred men
and boys in the mine, and the shaft, the
only means of escape, is choked by forty
feet of burning coal and rubnish. Ven

great fear that some , if not all, will be
brokYwoura, Pa., Setember 6.—Fire'
e out this morning p in the flue and
bottom at Steuben shaft, owned by
the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
Company in thieplace, and in a short
time the whole beaker and ont•building
were in flatnes, and the hoisting appara
tus, the only avenue of escape for the
miners; destroyed. All efforts to stay
I,the flames were unavailing and • the
whole struCture - fell. fi lling up the shaft.
Over two hundred men are in the shaft
and have no communication out, with
net chance for air, as the only way for
getting air Into the shaft was - through
the main °peplum, and that was filled
1 with the burning timbers and debris of
the flames. It is feared the whole num
ber have been suffocated by smoke or
' perished for want of air.
The fire departments of Scranton,
Wilkesbarre and Kingston are playing
streams down the shaft for the purpose
of quenching the, fire, so that the rub
bish can be cleared out . and the condi
tion of the men ascertained. It will
probably take till to-morrow morning
before tidings can be received from them.
The scene , is heartrending. Families
are congregated in great numbers.
Miners from all parts of the country are
there at work, and merchants, and, in
fact the whole population of the town,
have turned out toassiat,
The loss by fire will amount to about
$lOO,OOO, partly covered by insurance.
All the physicians of the vicinity have
been summoned to attend when the con
dition of the men la. ascertained. The
affair has cast a gloom upon the whole
community and in:wines* is almost en
tirely suspended.
The minemonly resumed work to-day
after a suspension of about three months.
Among the men in the mines is Mr.
Hughes, the Superintendent.
SCRANTON, Pa., September 6, /0 P. re.
—The latest information from the Avon
dale mine states , that the shaft was
cleared and two men went down and
penetrated sixty or seventy yards to a
gangway door, which they could not
force open. They found three dead
mules outside the door, and sulphurous
fumes were pouring out through the
'door. No signs of life were_discoyered,
and it is feared all are dead.
PLYMOUTH. Pa., August B.—lo P. M.—
After the rubbish from the bottom of the
shaft was cleared away two miners de
scended in a bucket and sent word up to
send down a pick and shovel to clear the
doors with. The bucket was hronght up
and two menu started down with the
tools. -As they started the men at the
bottom requested them to hurry, and on
thelr reaching, the bottom both were
found dead. No hopes are entertained
for the men in the shaft—all are sup
posed to have perished. The black damp
is very bad here.
The fire began at ten o'clock this morn
ing. All experts are agreed that it must
have communicated from the ventilating
furnace to the wood work at .the bottom
of the shaft, which is three hundred and
twenty-seven feet below the surface. The
flames then rushed with great violence up
the shaft and broke out in the engine .
room at the top. The engineer barely
escaped with his life. The buildings
covering the mouth of the shaft were
one hundred feet high and two hundred
feet long, all of wood and dry as tinder.
They were almost instantly enveloped
in flames, and it was impossible to reach
the mouth of the shaft to help the men
Dispatches just received from Avon
dale say Thomas W, Williams, of Ply
mouth, and David Jones, of Grand Tun
nel, who went down to make further in
vestigations, were suffocated to death.
On a second attempt Williams' aead
body was brought out by David A. Davis
and Benjamin Jones. Thomas Wit
hams went down and dragged
.David Jones some distance to
the foot of the shaft, when he
was compelled to come up. John and
Isaac Thomas then went down and
'brought up the body. All who
attempted to go down are now out alive
except Williams and Jones. No further
attempts will" be made to go down until
a small engine is rigged.
The loss by the burning of the Avon
dale mines' works is fiBo,ooo to $lOO,OOO,
not counting the loss by the stoppage of
mining. This mine had been involved
in a strike for over three months, but re
sumed work last Thursday and was pro•
ducingltrur hundred' and fifty tons of
coal ;or day. The works were built in
1887, and it will take from four to six
'months to rebuild.'
It will take until five A. H. to-morrow
to get a small engine to work to drive a
fan at the mouth'of the• shaft :and force
air in through a canvass hone. All who
have been Own say it is very hot, and
loud calls have failed to elicit any answer.
The only hope for the two hundred and
two men in the mine is that they may
have shut themselves in a remote part of
the working, entirely away from the
