BOLD BANK ROBBERY
It Occured in San Francisco
MARKET-STREET BANK THE SCENE
The Cashier and Book-Eeeper Shut
the Vault The Thieves Helped
San Fbancisco, Feb. 18. Three
masked men entered the Market-street
bank, a small institution in the Spreck
els building, shortly after 10 o'clock this
morning and ordered Cashier Hopkins
and Book-keeper Hayhurst to throw up
their hands. Hopkins, who was at the
counter, refused, and one robber fired a
bullet past bis bead, but which struck
The three robbers then climed through
a hole in the wire screen at the cashier's
window and seized the two bank officials
and hustled them into the vault. A
piece of carpet caught in the door of the
vault, and the robbers did not take time
to fasten the vault door. Hastily dump
ing the pile of gold on the' cashier's
counter into a sack they escaped.
Although Market street was crowded
with passing people the robbers made
good their escape. It is supposed they
secured only $800.
CONFESSED TO MUKDEB.
Unusual Scene at a Revival
Cedar Falls, Feb. 18. When Mort
Trnesdell, of Kenosha, Wis., confessed
at a revival meeting to the murder of a
man named Sheldon, at Leadville, Colo.,
September 10, 1890, he said :
"I have been trying to lead a Chiis
tianlife for several years, but have been
conscious all the time that I was a great
sinner. I am guilty of murder and
ready to surrender myself to the officers.
I want to serve the Lord, and cannot do
it without leaving off this awful burd
en." To a reporter Trnesdell afterward
made the following confession :
"I first met the man I murdered at
Springfield, 111., the 28th day of July,
1890. He and I traveled from there to
Colorado together, I had been a private
detective in Wisconsin. I was still a de
tective, but had no authority outside of
that state. The fellow's name was Bill
Sheldon or Shelton, I don't know which.
At Tennessee Pass I was ' taken sick
with mountain fever. I was Bick only
one night. Sheldon was then with me,
and while I was in bed he rifled my
pockets, taking some private letters
which contained matter showing I was a
a detective, I did not know he took the
letters until we had trouble the next
day. In the morning we started afoot
for Leadville. When within a few miles
of that city I gave out and could go no
further. Sheldon began swearing at me
and spoke of the letters he had taken
from my pockets.
"He said he bad found out that I was
a detective, nd would give him the
worst of it for the crooked cases ho had
told me of. He became enraged, and as
hecanaein front of me with a knife, I

took effect in the back of the head.
After the shooting, I laid down the re

knife and a watch and rode into Lead

whether the body was ever found or
A. Coal Mine Horror in Colorado.
Denver, Feb. 18. A special to the
News from Newcastle, Colo., says : An
explosion occurred at the Vulcan mine
at 11 :20 this morning vhich was the
most disastrous in the history of this,
camp. Tonight dozens of homes in the
little city were desolated. Men who this
morning left their homes with not a
thought of danger or the awful death
that so surely awaited them, are now
lying lifeless at the bottom of Vulcan

slope. All business is practically sus
pended ; every one is dazed at the awful
ness of the disaster.
No warning was given the peaceful
villagers until the sudden report as from
a hundred cannons resounded through
out the valley, making tba earth trem
ble. The force of the explosion had
caused a cave-in and the tunnel and air
courses were filled with fallen earth and
timbers. Both fan houses were wrecked
and the slope and vicinity were so full
of debris, and the gas so bad that it was
hard and dangerous work to begin the
rescue. Netherless, willing hands were
soon at work and five men went down at
once to ascertain the condition of the
slope and found it such that it will re
quire much labor to regain the miners.
The gas was so bad that after the party
had gotten 200 feet they were compelled
" The construction of a temporary fan
house was commenced at once and the
work of pumping fresh air into the mine
will soon begin. It is hardly possible
that any of the miners are still alive.
The only man who got out of the - mine
at the time "of the explosion was Ed.
Welch, who was near the month of the
tunnel and was blown out.'. He was
breathing when found, but expired
shortly after. -
Forty-eight men were in the mine
when the explosion occurred. As soon j
as the news of the explosion reached
Newcastle, Supt. Paul Blount closed the
mines of the Colorado Fuel & Iron com
pany, and taking in all his miners, left
for the Vulcan mine, where all are ac
tively at work aiding in the attempt at
The cause of the explosion is not yet
known. The coal fieldB in which the
Vulcan is located have been troubled
with subterranean fires for years. In
manyplaces over a distance of eighty to
100 miles smoke has issued from crevices
in the rocks since the country was first
known to white men and in later years
more. than one valuable -coal mine has
been destroyed by fire breaking into the
