Pittsburo, Feb. 16. The Meyer mine,

missing. Fifty men were at work when
the explosion occurred setting fire to the

which dropped to the bottom of the
hundred foot shaft and kindled the ac
cumulated gas, causing a terrific ex
plosion. The mine caught fire and the large
fan used for yentelation purposes was
destroyed, and the interior of the mine
was soon a mass of flames.
Moutz creek has been turned from its
course into the mine. The Meyer Coke
plant is one of the largest in the region,
and employed 500 men. They had re

OLD WORLD AFFAIRS.
Between the Emperor and Bis
Berlin, Feb. 14. The crisis in the
feud between Bismark and the emperor
is becoming acute. In a conversation at
an official dinner last night the emperor
remarked that the attacks inspired by
Bismark were aimed at him and he
feared he would soon be obliged to take
severe measures to suppress these attacks,
which were dangerous to the government
and the empire. It is reported that
Chancellor Caprivi has been instructed
to publish a warning to Bismarck's
paper, the Hamburger Narchrichten, to
cease publishing its pretended revela
tion of government affairs on pain o pros
ecution. The Narchrichten published
yesterday an article which caused a sen
sation. It declares the recent changes
in the army general staff to be due to
the fact that Waldersee and other offi
cers were working to bring on a war
with Russia. The article repeats other
charges that Waldersee has already de
nied, but which have acquired fresh sig
nificance from the removal of his inti
mates, Majors Zahn and Siebert from
the general staff. The emperor had a
prolongued conference yesterday with
the chancellor and minister of justice.
It is difficult to believe that the emperor
means to go to the length of prosecuting
Bismarck, yet his uncontrolled intensity
of irritation supports the rumor that he
will do so. The tone . of an inspired
note in the North German Gazette indi
cates that a milder form of expression
will be tried before Bismack is per
sonally challenged. Development of the
feud are watched with the keenest inter
est. The adherents of Bismarck say the
prince does not fear prosecution, and is
ready to meet, and perhaps wants to
provoke it. At an official dinner last
night representatives were present from
every political section in the reichstag
except socialists. The emperor gave
them his opinions on all the topics of
the day regarding legislation, etc.
Legislature Committee Should Agree
With the Convention.
Walla Walla, Feb. 14. The executive
committee of the waterway convention
held a meeting this afternoon, and sent
the following telegram to W. H. Grey and
George H. Pope, of Portland :
"Kindly ask the legislative committee
of Oregon and Washington to work as
nearly in harmony with the expressed
wish of the waterway convention as in
their good judgement ' will be ' wise and
best attain the effects sought. The
amount asked by Senator Raley is fully
endorsed, and will admit of more econom
ical improvment than That was asked
for in our memorial, which was only
limited through fear of asking too much
and getting nothing."
Also the following telegram was sent
to State Senator George T. Thompson,
at Olympia, Wash. :
"We respectfully ask such an amend
ment to your memorial as will make it
in harmony with the wish of the water
way convention, as expressed in their
congressional memorial, which asks for a
boat railway at The Dalles and comple
tion of the canal at the Cascades. Kind
ly advise with the waterway committne."

Hill Grows Sarcastic.
New York. Feb. 14. Governor Hill,
who is stopping at the Hotel Normandie,
was shown Watterson's second letter.
and was asked if there was anything he
had to say about it.
"I have only this to add," said the
governor: "Mr. Watterson now affirms
that the letter felt to be offensive in its
defense of me, and in motive and role
assigned to me, was in fact written by
him, and in fact written at the time of
its date. My reasons for believing the
letter a forgery were three : First, I had
never received it; second, I thought
Kentucky good manners would have re
quired my receipt oi tne letter ana my
assent before its publication ; third, it
says the writer never held office, and I
remember Mr. Watterson's brilliant
career in congress. I do not seek to
fathom Mr. Watterson's motives, and I
accept whatever explanation he oners."
San Francisco, Feb. 14. Professor E.
W. Hilgard. of the state university.
speaking of fraudulent fertilizers sold to

manufacturers of fertilizers to submit

much fraud is practiced, and cites the
case of a farmer in San Bernardino
county on whom agents tried to palm off
ground seashells as bone meal . The pro
fessor has written to members of the
legislature, and hopes that the action
will be taken.

No account of the jewels worn by
women prominent in Washington society
would be complete without a mention of
the magnificent diamond necklace par
chased two winters ago by Col. John D.
Longhorne for bis wife. The necklace',
brought to Washington by a dealer in
precious b tones, was first placed on ex
hibition by one of the leading jewelers
in the city, and for several weeks there
after was more widely talked and written
about than anything of the kind since
the international discussion over the dia
monds sent by the khedive to Gen. Sher
man's daughter upon the occasion of her
marriage to Lieut. Thackara,
The stones were not only of unusual
size, but each one was absolutely flaw
less, and it was said that the collector
had traveled from end to end of Europe
in order to obtain the number of stones
necessary for the completion of the neck
lace. Finally, after many conflicting
rumors as to the ultimate destination of
the necklace, it was purchased for a
small fortune by CoL Langhorne as a
Christmas present for his wife. Subse
quently it was decided to place it for
safe keeping in the vaults at Bigg's bank
until the undesirable tumult of talk con
cerning it had subsided. Washington
Miss Abbott's Care of Her Health.
Miss Abbott's illness is a grim sarcasm
upon the exceeding care which she took
of herself for the last twelve years. No
other woman upon the stage exercised
greater vigilance in the protection of her
health. The pains which Miss Abbott
took to secure proper rest and sleep
made that lady a veritable terror to ho
tel proprietors. She invariably insisted
npon a room at the top of the house, and
this apartment had to be hung around
with blankets and quilts to exclude light'
and noise. The dread of draughts kept
her in constant terror, and never during
the season would she venture out of
doors without being enveloped in furs .
and rags. Of horses she was particul arly
afraid, and, although she was compel If d
to employ them- almost constantly, i3
never had a feeling of security whi i:i
a carriage. Never was there a wo - i
so completely a slave to her regart 'r
