Very Little Hope of Saving the
Wrecked Vessel.
Denver, August 29. A special to 'the
News from Central City, Col., says:
The accidental flooding of the Amcr-
leus and Sleepy Hollow mines this after
noon ihas caused the death, it is be'
lleved, of thirteen miners. Every effort
is being made to rescue the men, but
little hope is entertained of the ability of
the workers to do so.
A little after 8 o'clock the water in the
lower workings of the FIsk Mine, east
of the maln shaft, broke through the old
workings of a vein that has- not been
worked for a number of years. Coursing
eastward, it struck the Amcrlcus where
two Italian miners whose names have
not been learned, were at work in the
ower part of the shaft. They were both
drowned. In Its course the water was
diverted to the Sleepy Hollow mine, in
the easterly portion of the risk vein
Fourteen men 'were working In the Sleepy
Hollow mine, three of whom escaped,
A courier was sent to the adjacent mines
and all the other workmen escaped. Those

Bracken, 'Brower R. Risk, William P.
Risk, .Thos. Rouse, Thos. Williams, M.
Plaeonl, Thomas Calbls, J. Harris, S.
Valero, and John Parks. The work of
rescue was commenced Immediately.
The farthest depth readied! was 330 feet,
the accumulated gas forced up by the
rising waiters being so dense that a can
dle would not burn at a greater depth.
A second effort was made but was not
successful and all the men will undoubt
edly drown before they can be rescued

London, August 29.-The Pall Mall Gtt'
zette says: The London Athletic Club
today Is made up of outsiders, only four
bona fide members having arranged to
go to America. This sacrifice of the best
traditions of the club has caused great
surprise. It Is obvious that some of
the champions who are members of this
team are not socially qualified to tie
members of the London Athletic Club,
This action is Injurious to the cause oi
athletics and has done much to reduce
the Interest which Englishmen have been
taking In the coming contestB. By an
nounclne that this team is the one select
ed to take part In the contests for the
chamtolonshlD. the London Athletic Club
has virtually compelled the New York
Club to follbw its lead. The members
of the New York Athletic Club are weal
thv and are now practically buying up all
the leading men who can possibly pose
as amateurs.
