New York, April 1. The Herald
fomcrrow will say: Promises that
Senator Depew would return to his
place of duty by this timi have not
been fulfilled, for the reason that
hopes of his family for a complete
restoration of his health nave been
disappoiDtej. He is still in retire
ment on the Elliot F. Shepard es
tate, back of Cai borough on-Hud
son, where he has been in seclusion
for a month since he suddenly left
Washington. i. , - i " .
So closely is the senator guarded
that only a few persons living in
the . immediate ' neighborhood are
able to say from their, own knowl
edge that he is in the "villa," as the
houEe is known,, as extreme meas
u.res have been taken to, check .the
rapid .decline into which it has
seemed for several months he has
been falling. '. ,.i ,. -,
It any, emyloye on . the Shepard
place is questioned as to the eena

simulated stare of amazement or
flatly denies that he has ever heard
a report as to the senator's wherea
bouts. Here and there can be
found ODe or two to admit having
seen Mr. Depew. Every pleasant
day recently be has been taken for
a ride in an automobile, and sever
al times he has taken children of
the neighborhood as companions

New York, April 2.- The curator
and 10 keepers in Bronx Zoological
Garden had an exceedingly lively
time yesterday when they succeed
ed by main force in preventing the
gigantic 25-foot python from starv
ing himself to death. The snake
had not eaten for five months and
could not be coaxed to break ; its
fast. - Yesterday " the curator and
his men prepared a meal . for the
python. , They killed and skinned
five rabbits, which they , had tied
together in a long string, one end
of which they fastened to a 10-foot
pole. These details finished, ten
keepers dragged the snake out of his
den. The big reptile wriggled and
fought with .inconceivable agility
and strength," considering the length
of his fast. ...At length 25 feet oi
shake was stretch out at full length
upon the floor of. the feeding room.
Eight men held Mr. Python , down
and two rammed the entire. meal of
rabbits into the ; snake's stomach
and'withdrew the pole. ; The snake
less quarrelsome, than before: wa9
again . ' carried r into ' ' nis cage.
This meal will last him two months.

AT THE MINES
THIRTEEN RETURN TO EARTH
AFTER TWENTY DAYS UN
DER THE GROUND.
Lived on Hay, Birk and Decayed
Horseflesh Come Forth Like .
Men from the D. ai
Lens, France,. Mirah 30. The
disaster at the Courriers coal mines
had a startling sequal today, when
thirteen miners were taken out alive
after having- endured unspeakable
horrors during the 2O . days of en
tombment. The story x of the sur
vivors, so far as it has beeatold,
discloses that they lived for many
days on putrid horse-meat, amid
total darkness and the stench of
scores of , decaying corpses. The
presence of human flesh would
speedily have forced the starving
men to resort to the last desperate
extremity if they had not' been re
cued,..;: : -. ; - '
The survivors were sturdy young
men from 17 to 25 years of age, ex
cept their leader, Henri Nemy, who
is 38 years of age. All show the
terrible effects of their experiences,
being emaciated and blinded. The
Doctors enforced quiet upon them,
fearing the results of fever and
poisoning from their having ea'en
decayed horseflesh J
There - were touching scenes as
wives and mothers greeted those
whom they had long given up as
dead. Crowds besieged the hospit
als to which the men were taken,
cheering the survivors and impre
cating the ineffective nature of the
salvage work that followed imme
diately after the disaster.
The rescue of these I3 men re
vived hope in many families that
others are alive and the relatives of
those whose bodies have not been
recovered clamorously demanded
that efforts be - redoubled to bring
out any possible survivors.'
There is a report that in addition
to the:I3 men who were brought up
out of the mine tod y, five others
came with them almost to the bot
tom of the pit, but were unable to
come further on accoQu. af exhaustion-

The bodies recovered approximate
ly number 5OO and there are still
unaccounted for approximately
The mine officiats Were deeply af
fected as the. weeping survivors were
taken to a hospital. .They all asked
for news of relatives and friends,
and wished to go home immediately.
The doctors, however, prevented
them with difficulty from so doing.
It is Eald that others of the en
tombed miners are alive and about
to be brought out, their signals
having been heard.
. . One of the men rescued today, a
man named Nemey, eaid that for
the first eight days the party eight

Later they found the decompos
ed body of a horse, which they cut
up and ate with hay. The surviv
ors brought up portions of decom
When cut off by explosion the
miners took refuge in a stable where
the mules were kept. They enb
sisfed for days on the lunches that
their dead comrades took down on
the day of the disastr aad had 1 ft
in the stables. Wnen all these
lunches were exhausted, the m?n
lived on the grain and water kept
for the livestock.
When taken out the men looked
more like ghosts than human be
ings.' Pale and emaciated, color
less, blinking at the unwonted light
of day, the rescued indeed were pi -iable
objects.. They were immedi
ately surrounded by a throng of
friends and relatives who showered
their congratulations upon them.
All were taken to a hospital where
they will be treated until able to re
turn to their homes.
The men were found in a remote
part of ths mine which had not

raged for two weeks in the mine
following the explosion. They hsd
lived 20 days with no light and but
little air. With one exception tb
