Like a page from a Gilbert and Sulli
van opera reads the Btory of Medford 's
On September 13 the council met and
voted to cut the recorder's salary to
$75 a month.
On December 3, three months aft
erwards Councilman Trowbridge dis
covers that ho had not been officially
notified of the meeting nu September
13 and declares that the proceedings
were therefore illegal, although ho had
voted to approve the minutes.
A motion to this effect is made. Ar
gument follows. The city attorney
states that if it was a special meeting
and a councilman was not notified, the
meeting was illegal, but wants time to
consider the question as to whether ap
proval of the minutes ligali'.es the
acts performed at the meeting. The
motion is put to a vote. Councilman
Burkdull refuses to vote until ho se
cures legal advice upon the knotty
problem. Councilinen Oscnbrugge, Ki-
fert and Trowbridge vote to nullify
the actions of the meeting on the nl

EXODUS OF EMIGRANTS
FOR EUROPEAN POINTS
PITTSBURG, Dec. 0. A terrific nnd
disastrous explosion occurred today in
tho mines of the Six and Eight Consoli
dation Coal company of Monogah, W.
Va. Mine Superintendent Mnlone says
that at least 500 miners aro ontombed.
It is believed that tho majority of the
men have been killed. All is confus
ion at the scene of the disaster. Defi
nite information is meager. Tho explo
sion was heard 40 miles.
It is feared that the accident will
turn out to bo tho worst in tho history
of mining, in this country. From tho
best estimates 250 men were in each
mine. The relief pnrty . cannot reach
the imprisoned men before 4 o'clock.
It is believed that the explosion was
caused by dust. The minoB aro both
shaft and slope mines, being worked
by rope nnd haulage systems. They
are on both sides of the west fork of
the Menongahela river. Tho coal com
pany is one of tho largest in the conn
try 'nnd capitalized at $110,000,000. Up
to (en years ago only American miners
w,.r,. enmloved. The population of
Mononenh is 0000, mostly foreign, but
still ninny Americans aro among tlio
Five dead Americans had been taken
from tho mines at 8 o'clock. Tho body
of Charles Ilonnker, one of tho men,
was blown out of the entrance of mine
