The known dead are, Superintend

miner named Tobio, and five other
miners, too badly burned to be iJeD-

fire reach the underground maga

escape the flames and smoke. . The
amount of dynamite stored under

known. ;Later reports indicate that all of
the men in: the mine, with the. ex

possible, however, that several oth

tinguished at two o'clock, and 'for

searching the ruins of tbe sbaJt

for some time, until a roll is" called,
bow many perished. A list of those
burned in the effort to rescue ' the
miners cannot be procured, as eve
ry man available is hard 'at "work

ed, are in the mine with the . rescu
Every' po'sible aid is be'iDg rend

dangerous, as the ladders into the

Benton Delegates Report r Offcially t
Court About Good Roads Convention.
At last weeks session of the coun
ty court,-the del gat js from Benton, -who.
attended the Good .KoaJa con
vention in Portland, submitted a,
report. Much of the matter is of
interest to the public, and is as fol
lows: J'. . . r, , .
The subjects under discussion of
which we consider of most impor
tance were; The employment of
our convicts on tbe public, highways
national and state aid for the im
provemeut of our highways, tha
relative, value and economy of good
and bad roads. Th rlatioot the ,
road question 10 edtic-1 n, and the
cost, construction uN'iitjdiiiXainanca
of good roads ' .:- .W's-ij .;..,.
"With the preseiit o imposition of
convict labor they are brought iota
direct' communication with free ,
labor.' " ' ..,-
' ' 0 'CONVICTS ON ' ROAD. ' i-7 .
The labor of the convictc of tha
state has been leased to the Loe '
wenberg & Going Company, of Port
land for 35 cents, per , day of tea
hours for each man. The duration
of the lease , of Nthe . convict labor
will eoon expire and some new - ar
rangement lor the employment pf
our convicts must be made, ,, .,i .
Other states are , utilizing their
convict labor in the improvement
of their highways, we believe that
Oiegon should do the" same. In;
tois way their work would b9 of
public benefit and would not as is
the case " come into competition
with free labor. ' ,
; Tbe Hon. M. O. Eldridge of the"
Office Public Road I oquiries Wash
ington D C. showed with the steri- .
optica d how the convicts were
worked 01 the roads in other states.
Views were shown where they were
at work with ball and chain 'atta
ched. Also the portable steel cage
in which they were : enclosed, for
safekeeping at night was shown. A.,

We believe that it would be a;
good moral lesson to tbe youth of,
our ,lands well as the convicts, .
themselves to be made to .work,
where they can be seen. We agree
with.the.Hort. M. 0. Eldridge that N .
it is no more than right as .we en
deavor to mend their ways tq make
them mend our (highways). We'
hope that the nextlegislatUre will
make proper legislation along this

and we believe the highways of our.
land are worthy the consideration
of oar congress. - We urge that our .
representatiies in congress do all
they can toward they enaqtment of
the Brownlow Bill which , provides
for the appropriation of $20,000,000
for tbe department of Publio Rood.
Inquiries inorder that -object les
sen roads may,- be made in every
state.-. . .
- r Oregon's share for such an appro,
priation would be about $150,000
Good roads are of .great- value to
any country:-" There is no "econe
my 'in bad roads. , They cost yearly
a great deal mora than the interest
on the' price of. good roads. -' It is
only to true that our country
rchools are not on a par ' with the
gaaded schools of our cities. . . "

nothing that can insure the success
