Iron Mountain, Mich., Sept. 29. It
was reported this morning that the
Mansfield mine, a few miles from Crys
tal Palls, caved In last night, killing
40 miners. The miners are burled un
der a heavy mass, and there Is no pos
sible chance of escaping alive. Rescu
ing parties are hard et work. Unless
the Imprisoned men can be reached In
a short time they will all be lost, as the
wuter Is rising fast, and will soon
reach them even If they are not already
dead. The main shaft of themlne ex

The subsiding of the ground turned the
stream Into the mine,, flooding it al
most instantly. There were sixty" men
in the mine, but fifteen eajied.
Later There are now said to have
teen only three men who escaped. l!4ity'
were In the shaft at the time of the
accident, and were literally blown out
by the rush of water and air. Thirty
seven are actually known to be dead.
The mine is flooded to the level of the
river bed, and it is impossible for any
cne of the missing to be alive.
Tony Bulletto, a skip tender, was
standing with Frank Rocko," the night
boss, at the shaft on the fourth level.
They 'heard the crash and realized
what was coming: . Rocko went Into
the drift to Inform- his men of the dan
ger, and did not return. Bulletto came
to the surface in the skip alone. An
drew Sullivan, another night boss, was
cn the sixth level at the time of the
accident Uncalled his men to follow
quickly. All but four on this . level
rtached the ladder In safety. As they
ascended, however, they were nearly
suffocated, so great was the air pres
sure caused by the water pouring
down the Bhaft. They were able to
breath only at each landing place and
came to the surface more dead than

deputy has been employed in the mine
and has given the work his dally at

mine personally at required Intervals,

that the ring system of mining cannot
be employed in that sort of ground.

Boise, Idaho, Sept. 29. News comes
om Mountain Home that a few days
ago a Chinaman was held up by two
men and robbed of 1200. The highway

that the victim could not identify him
owing to his being masked at the time

hold of the matter. They took Shirley
out and suspended him from a tree.

Washington, Sept 29. The democrat
: repeal senators have practically giv
i up the idea that the Sherman law
in be repealed unconditionally, and
have, after numerous conferences, ae-
cided ujon a compromise which they
holieve will end the long fight and
secure the passage of a bill to relieve
prt.-nt situation, by the ena oi
next w'K. ?-'
democratic repeal senators are actively
engaged in arranging the terms of a
compromise and tonight It Is believed
they have succeeded. It involves con-
sessions on both sides; it repeals the
purchasing clause; provides for the
coinage of a specified amount, of two
or two and a half million per month
until the total silver coinage shall
bo $7,000,000,000; . then the coinage
of all bullion in th-i treasury and
gold reserve to an amount which is
deemed, sufficient to Insure the main
tenance of, gold and silver at a parity.
When the proposition was submitted
to Secrelarv ftorllsle lost nleht he In
sisted uWj latter provision to the
agreement"'1 rfc general understanding

penators agr. to the compromise. The
only thing in the way ofthe program
now seems to be the president.

In order to add to the exact knowl
edge of ocean currents, ther-s are forms
which are called "bottle papers." On
these little papers, an invitation, in
six languages, is extended to the mas
ters of vessels, to enter occasionally
upon the proper lines of the form the
name of the vessel, and her captain, the
date and .the ship's pobltlon; and then
to seal the paper in a bottle and cast
it into the sea. In other lines of this
form, a request is made, in the same
six languages, that the finder will write
clearly the exact place where, and date
when, any bottle waa picked up, and by
whom, and then forward it to the hy
drographlc office at Washington, or to
any of our consulates abroad. These
bottles, ' of course,' drift in the ocean
currents. Some are . picked up soon
after they'are thrown overboard, others
drift for over a year before being re
covered. They furnish valuable, rec
ords for more correctly fixing the cur
rents already known. . .
Day after day these reports are re
ceived by the meteorological office;
each one is acknowledged promptly,
and then given to the staff of workers
known aa nautical experts.
The result of their labor is that on
the last day of every month is Issued a
chart on which appears all the informa
tion received during the month that
has .gone. The chart, then, contains
a review of the past month, and a fore
cast for the rqonth that is to follow.
- The prevailing winds to be expected,
and their strength, as foretold by men
of many '- years experience, are given
for the month.' to coma The various
sailing routes best adapted for that

steamship routes adopted by the prin
cipal transatlantic steamship compan
ies. Every floating wreck, with its
