SIXTY BURIED
Terrific Explosion in
rado Cool Nine.
Colo-
PIRE ADDS TOJJHE HORROR
Men Penned In Will In all LIKcll
hood Be Cremated Dust Is the
Cause of the Disaster.
Trinidad, Colo., Oct. 31. The moBt
terrific explosion in tho history of conl
Tiin'ng in Colorado ocurred nt Mine
No. 3, of tho Roky Mountain Fuel A
Iron company, at Terio, 40 miles duo
west of Trinidad, at 1:30 thia after-
noon, aud tho number of dead ia vari
ously placed between 30 and CO mon,
although thejatter, it ia believed, is
tho moat correct estimate. The num
ber reported na having gono into the
mine this morning was 17 miners and
four company men. This afternoon
many more minors are known to have
gone into the mine, and the exact num
ber of dead may never bo known, aa
the mine ia burning and in all likeli
hood tho bodies will be cremated.
A large numbei of mine officiula left
here aa aoon aB word of tho accident
was received. Company doctors were
picked up all along the line, as well aa
all other available physicians. United
States Government Stock Inspector F.
J. Foreman was at Tercio when the ex
plosion occurred.
Tho shaft in which the accident oc-
curredwork8 80 men, and it ia believ
ed that at least 60 men were in the
mine at the time. News of the explo
sion brought assistance from the adja
cent camps and tonight hundreds of
men are trying to get into the mine.
Deadly fumea overcome tho rescuers
frequently, but their places are imme
diately taken by others ready to risk
their livea. It ia not thought poesible
that anyone in the mine can escape
death, if they are not all dead already.
It is impossible to secuie namea of
the dead and injured tonight. Nearly
all the miners employed are Slave.
Ihe mino ia a new one, opened only a
year ago, and extended 2,000 feet into
the hill. The exploaion is supposed to
have been caused by dust. Only one
body has been recovered, that of T.
Duran, a driver, who wae just entering
the tunnel when the explosion occurred.
He was torn and burned almost beyond
recognition All mines within a radius
of two miles have been shut down, and
the miners will assist in rescuing the
bodies of the victims.
'05 PAIR RATE IS MADE.
Railroads Will Charge $45 for
Round Trip.
St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 31. The Trans
continental Passenger Tiaffic associa
tion disposed of its docketed business
yesterday at the Jeffeifon, and ad
journed last evening. For the Lewis
and Clark exposition at Poitland, a
rate of $ 15 for the round trip from
Missouri river points and St. Paul
was adopted by the association for four
or five daya duiing each month. From
points east of the Missouri river and
St. Paul, a rate of one fare for the
ound trip will be made up to those
points.
These rates will be adopted as the
basis for rates on account of several
conventions to be held next year on
the Pacific coast. It was decided that
in all cases where St. Louis exposition
tickets for exhibitois have expired be
fore the close of the fair that the re
turn limits shall be extended.
Tax Will Be Collected.
San Fiancisco, Oct. 31 The United
States attorney general has decided
that Chancellor Stratton must continue
to exact from the steamship companies
the head tax of $2 upon aliens in tran
sit. The law provides that no head
tax shall be collected for this class of
passengers, but the department has in
sisted that the tax be paid in tho form
of a deposit, to be repaid to the com
panies upon proof oneied by them that
the alien tourists have passed out of
the counry 3,000 miles from here.

officers, tocontinuo its crazy career

and menace to tho civilised world?"
And, with other papers, declares there

pecially at German denunciation of tho
conduct of the Baltic fleet.

plied to tho fire, m'terward continuing
his vojage. "

Russians feared the strange torpedo
boate wero Japaneeo, as tho aumiral
