The men were at work blasting rock,
Thev had used a number of sticks of
giant powder to spring the bole and Ia
ter put in some black powder, but as it
was jammed in the hole the men had to
put fuse to it to blow ltout.This they did
and then before the hole had sufficient
ly cooled from the last powder, they
started to put in the final charge. Bar-
tell had a keg of black powder in bis
hands and was pouring it in the hole.
Garrison was standing by to tamp it,
but when about two quarts of powder
bad been poured in the hole it ignited

by Secretary Carlisle of Deputy Collect

import were made against the collector
at Port Townsend, but Senator Squire

groundless. The Port Townsend col
lector has telegraphed Senator Squire
courting a full Investigation of his offic

Chicago, April 12. The bull clique
In the wheat market was after big
gamo yesterday and apparently bagged
some of it. The famous plunger, Ed.
Partridge, seemed to be the person
aimed at, and he was unmercifully
crowded. It Is said, as a result of tbe
day, Partridge was a poorer man by
(760 000. He was thought to bo still
short of enough to lose him another
million besides the losses of yesterday J
partridge ahead today.
Tbe threat of a dollar a bushel for
May wheat seems about to be realized
today. Everything seems to be con
spiring with tbe big bull clique, beaded
by tbe multi-millionaire pork packers
aud speculators, Mlcheal and John Cu-
daby, to make life a burden to Part
ridge, tbe big bear. With a terrlflo
roar May opened at 00, an advance
over night of 81 cts. It was supposed
this would bring tbe big plunger down
but ho is apparently still in the ring
by a large majority and the clique
seeing IU mistake, began pounding tbe
market with heavy offerings. Inside
of five minutes the quotation was .84.
A series of wild fluctuations between
that figure and .00 followed, till the ex
citement exhausted Itself, and at tbo
end of tbe first hour, the market was
comparatively steady at 0 cents, under
tbe opening figures. Patridge Is on tbe
floor, dlreotiug operations of his brok

uation elicited admiration even of those
opposed to him.

The Pope's Policy.
London, April 12. A dispatch from
Rome emanating from high authority
states the Italian government Intends
upon occasion of holding the next papal
conclave to issue a brochure declaring
that tbe next pope ought to overthrow
the Democratic policy established by
tho present pope, and become recon
ciled with tho qulrlnal work. It Is
said it will also declare Pope Leo's suc
cessor should favor an alliance between
Germany, Austria and Italy. The dis
patch adds that in official circles it is
greatly feared Pope Leo's successor will
bo a foreigner. Liberals especially
dread the election of Cardinal Gibbous,
of Baltimore. Olllcials of tho Vatican
laugh at the idea of the proposed bro
chure having any effect. They smile
also at tbe other attempts tho Itallau

to make for a change in tho pope's poll

Goal Mine Explosion.
London, April 12. A spark from an
engine ignited gus in a coal pit near
Pontey Prldda, Wales, and caused a
frightful explosion. Three hundred
miners were entombed. Seventy men
succeeded in reaching tho surface
through the main dip, led by a mluer
who knew tbe roads. They had a
terrible struggle to get out, forcing
tbelr way through fire aud smoae. At
0:45 o'clock last evening it was still
impossible to obtain more than meagre
details of the accident. Tbe men who
saved themselves were too confused and
frightened to observe tho positions of
tbelr fellow worklngmon. They are
unable to stive any clear account of tbe
distribution of the miners and tbe
work of rescue must therefore proceed
under all difficulties of uncertainty.
At present the flames and smoke
would render any attempt to rescue
vain, if not fatal to the party making
descent. There Is little doubt, more
over, but most, if not all oj the men
below are suffocated or burned to
death. A second attempt to enter tbe
seam in which the fire started proved
resultless. Although the rescuing
party saw six dead bodies, they were
prevented by smoke and beat from

Caused at San Francisco By the Flood
Ban FitANOisoo, April 12. It tran
spired that the amount of ex-Cashier
Flood's dafalcatlon from tho Donohoe
Kelly bank Is $104,000 and a sensation
baa thereby been created in financial
circles. Tho bank officials have hereto
fore lutlmatcd that the cashier's short
age would not bo over $25,000, but the
facts were disclosed this afternoon when
suit was filled by tho bauk against
Flood to recover $180,000. The com
plaint alleges that in tbe last year he
misappropriated $104,000 and has reim
bursed the corporation only in $25,000.
Flood stoutly affirms bis innocence aud
declares that when the case comes to
trial he will be perfectly able to place
himself right before tbe world. It la
Intimated bo has been botrayed by the
perfidy of a frleud.
Flood acknowledges that the money
was abstracted from the bank in a,
lump sum and the shortuge was not
mado up of a series of speculations ex
tending over a series of years as has
beon supposed. Flood also confesses
that tho defalcation occurred since
March 4th. But what he did with It
and why ho took It Flood absolutely
refuses to stato. He has been a man
heretofore of upright life and Flood
said he had paid It out over tbe coun
ter in tbe usual manner to persons now
out of the Jurisdiction of the California
courts, He would not divulge their
Identity even under duress, but de
clared the bauk was at liberty to hold
him accountable and send him to
prisou. He cheerefully gaye up prop
erty worth $25,000 In partial reparation,
Flood had been with the bank thirty
years. The theory is advanced by
Bom'o that he has voluntarily sacrificed
his liberty aud reputation to shield
