A coal dust explosion in one of the
chamber of the Sunrise Coal Company,
the property of the Colorado Fuel &
Iron Company, at Sunshine, 1'.' miles
southeast of Glen wood Springs, killed
11 Italian and one American tonight,
a few minute before fl o'clis'k. The
men were prewiring to leave the mine
on the day shift when the disaster oc
curred. A shot had been tired, and in
stead of its being a direct explosion,
which in miners' parlance is called a
"blowout," it created a (lame, which
shot backward and caught the dust that
iiad accumulated in the chain her iutscad
of dishslging the seam of the coal in
tended. At the time of the explosion
there was a barrel of powder in the
chamber, which ingited and aided the
disaster which would have occurred
through the coal dust exploding alone.
The Sunshine mine, whcie the disaster
occurred, is of u peculiar coal, a com
bination of anthracite and bitumen,
and there is a belief that the gather
ing of coal dust in the chamls'r was
duo to excessive explosion caused by a
desire to empty the chamber tisi quick
ly. In the property there are 50 to 55
men employed. The single chamber

only one damaged. Two hours after
the explosion occurred, the IsHlieg of

Negotiation fpon tha subject Pending
lletwern Japan ami the
New Y.nk. Sept. 6.-A special to
the Herald from Washington says:
Japan, not content with an interference
j President McKinlcy' H.iwanau an-m-xation
policy, now ha destgns ma.n
,he Nicaratii cunal. According to
scim-official advices just received here
fr Nicaragua, the Japanese govern-
ment i secretly negotiating with the
diet of the Greater Kepublio of Central
America, which recently met in Salva-
lr for the construction of the Meant'
,.,i.. . anal, independently and in
f the interest ol
State or other nation.
Tliis action ol Japan, taken in con-
, tion with her recent attitude in re-
gard to II nvaiiati annexation i of the
greatist significance, show ing as it doe
to the authorities that there i no limit
to the ambition of the nation, and that
her aggressive policy may yet get her
into trouble with the United State.
That the administration will resent
any interference with the Nicaragua
canal project us it did in the case of
the llawwaiian annexation treaty goes
w ithout saying.
If Japan can enemnpas it, according
to the Nieanu'iian advice received
here, she would like toobtain the abro
gation of all treaty right possessed by
the United States in relation to inter
oceanic transit and the forfeiture of the
American canal concession from Nic
aragua, ami to immediately make a
treaty w ith the diet of the Greater Uo
public of Central American giving her
control of the route through Nicaragua.
In the negotiations Costa Itica ha
not been consulted, it being well known
that she would not assent to ft violation
of a treaty right. It has been susjiected
in some quarter that England, which
has always been anxious to acquire at
least a joint control of the canal, might
be working in collusion with Japan in
the "dickering" with the diet now un
derstood to be in progress, but nothing
has yet come to the surface to indicate
that'shu has encouraged Japan in the
It is said that the agent ol the Nic
aragua canal here has laid the fact be
fore Mr. Hitchcock, president ol the
canal c pany in New York, with the
suggestion that the department be ap
prised of the secret negotiations that
are now being carried on between Japan
and the diet.
Seuor Zclayn, tho president of Nic
aragua, it is understood, ha admitted
to close personal friend that Japan is
now negotiating with the diet, but in
each case he advised the strictest sec
recy. A private letter just received in thi
city from Nicaragua says:
"Among Americans in Central
America the belief is general that the
Greater Kepuhlic of Central America,
which is represented in diplomatic
atfairs by a diet composed of three
memhers, one each from Nicaragua,
Salvador ami Honduras, was organized
principally in order that Nicaragua
might absolve herself from individual
responsibility as a nation, and thereby
abrogate her interoceuuic transit treaty
with the United States. The so-called
Greater Kepuhlic, resenting the failure
of the United States to recognize the
Greater Kepuhlic (receiving Senor Hod
riguez) and in failing to accredit a
United States minister to the Greater
Kepublio, is likely to make a treaty
w ith Japan granting her a concession
for the construction of the canal.
"The United States minister here
believes that when this news reaches
Washington the state department will
send a note to Japan asking if bIio is
seeking to interfere with our treaty
rights in the premises. The American's
in Nicaragua believe that the United
States government will insist that her
interoceanic treaties with Nicaragua,
Costa liica, Honduras and Colombia are
yet in force, although the diet Claims
that Nicaragua and Honduras are no
longer separate and individual nations
and are therefore irresponsible."
Although state department ofllcials
will not admit that any olllcial news
has come to con 11 rm the private advices,

Chicago, Sept. 8. A million dollars
a day at a low estimate is the amount
of money being sent out by the hanks
of Chicago to heip the farmers move
the big grain croi which they have be
gun to harvest. Fifteen million dollars
is a close approximation to the sum
which has been sent to the West and
Southwest during the past two weeks,
and yet the movement has only begun.
It show signs of growing in strength
every day. The bulk ol the money
thus far sent out has gone to Kansas
City and Omaha, hut large sums are
reported a going to Minneapolis am
Duluth and the Northwest.

New York, Sept. fl. A special to
the WorlJ from Havana iay: The
World ' correspondent went to ee
Evangelina Cisneros In her prison.
Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturday, are
visiting days at the woman's Jail, and
the ante-room on these days full of
people from 13 to 4 P. M., who have
oome to condole with and bear good
tidings to their relatives and friends.
When the World's correstiondent
asked to see Mis Cieneros, he was al
lowed to pass through the outsido iron
gate into a small room with a stone
floor, on one of the wall of which was
painted in largo letters, "Salltt do Jus
tica." Evangelina was sent for up
stairs, and while waiting the corre
Blmdent had the opjwrtunity to notice
some of the other women who were re
ceiving visits. One was ft well-dressed
woman who had murdered her husband.
Sitting next to her was a good-lookinu
woman who had been caught soiling
ammunition and supplies to the insur
gents. She was a political prisoner.
Next to her was a woman who kept a
lodging-house in Havana, and had
rented a room to two men whom she
did not know. While their baggage
was being moved into tho room tho
jiolio' seized two ol their trunk and
found anus and ammunition. The men
escaped, but the landlady was arrested.
She knew nothing of the case, but was
held resmsible, and is now waiting
the result of the full and long investi
gation. A few minutes after the arrival of
the corresKiiident Evangelina came
tripping down the stairs and walked
gracefully across tho end ol the court
yard and out through tho gate into the
reception room. She is beyond ques
tion pretty. She is petite of figure and
graceful in all her movements. Her
manner are perfect and her self-oi-scssion
wonderful. She said she could
not make any statement on pajajr be
cause her friends had told her not to,
but she talked freely of her hopes and
fears and answered questions seemingly
without reserve. She did not receive
her meals from the outside, she said,
la-cause she was afraid of treachery,
and preferred to lie content with the
rations of the jail.
There are eight or ton other women
in this same big room. All looked
clean and respectable, and all were
white women. One of them was a distinguished-looking
lady of about CO,
with handsome gray hair. Some alleged
political offense is the cause of her im
Et ungelina is the most animated of
all. She is the star Injardor, and re
ceives more attention and hasinore vis
itors than the others. She said the
letters she received from Colonel Berris
on the Isle of Pines, and which contain
evidence of his guilty intentions to
ward her, were all sent by her friends
to Austria, and from there diroct to
Spain to the queen regent. She says
if they could be produced before a fair
court his conviction would be certain.
The colonel says that he wrote her but
one letter, and that granted the permit
to her father to travel as a peddler.
She would not describe the events of
the night of July 20, 181)0, further than
to say that she knew Colonel Berris
was coming to her house that night,
because his secretary had told her so.
She opened the door when he knocked.
As to how he was seized, or hy whom
she would not say. She escaped from
the house and was caught ti'id arrested
the follow ing morning and brought to
Havana. She says that tho greatest
favor anyone could do for her wouhl I si
to secure for her an interview with
General Weyler. She says:
"I could convince him, if he would
only hear me."
In government circles nothing has
been heard from Madrid in connection
with transferring her to a convent.
Opinions differ as to whether such a
change would be of benefit. If her
case is let alone for a while sho will bo
released and lerhaps ordered to leave
EIGHT SUCCUMBED TO FEVER

to South America.
Denver, Sept. fl. George W. Adams,
of Cripple Creek, arrived in this city
today from the gold fields of South
