Butte, Oct. 24. An unexpected move
was made In the Amalgamated Copper
situation today, when a proposition waa
made by the miners' union to John
Macglnnis, vice-president of the United
Copper Company, and his associates
connected with the Montana Ore Pur
chasing Company, to purchase their
slock in the Boston & Montana Com
pany. The union would then dismiss
the proceedings against the Boston &
Montana Co.. so that there could
be a general resumption of the Amalga
mated mines, smelters and various
other plants throughout Montana. At
a special .neeting of the union, at which
about 3000 miners attended. It was de
cided to offer Macglnnis and Forester
$500 a share for their 100 shares of Bos
ton It Montana stock. A similar offer
waa made for stock In the Parrot Cop
per & Silver Mining Company at
a rate not to exceed $100 a share.
The union passed a resolution suggest
lng the need of an adequate law to
meet emergencies of the present char
acter, and calls upon the governor to
convene the legislature to enact legis
lation that will correct the evils, and

A Subway Suddenly Caves in,

ONLY FOUR REMOVED ALIVE
Men Had Just Entered Tunnel
When Explosions Caused
Collapse of a Mass ''
New Tork, Oct. 21. A frightful ac
cident, which will result In the 'death of -12
or 14 men, occurred 'ate this evening '
in the "subway" at One Hundred and
Ninety-fifth street and Broadway. At .
midnight six men, two of them dead,
had been removed from the tunnel. It
is believed that 12 others were In the
shbway when the accident occurred and
that all have perished.
A colored man employed on the work
was the only eye-witness to the dis
aster, and his story ia the only one ob
tainable. He statea that an electrician
had gone Into the mouth of the tunnel
for the purpose of stringing wires, and
that the man was followed by 17 or IS
Italian laborers. Scarcely had the men
entered the subway when three blasts
were heard, followed by a rumbling
sound and.the falling ;f rock. The men
were caught beneath the falling mass
and all but four of them were doubtless
killed. .'-,.. ''
Of the six men who had been taken
from the subway nt midnight, two weres
dead and four, were severely Injured.
The dead bodies of two other men were
lying In plain view, with great rocks
upon them. It Is thought that 10 other
men were crushed beneath the mass of
stone, and there la little hope that they
will be taken out alive.
The accident probably resulted
from a premature explosion, or may t
have been due to failure to give warn-
lng of the blasts that were set off at the
time the men entered the tunnel. Tha
matter will be Investigated and re
sponsibility for the disaster placed at
the door of the negligent persons. -
