Rescued From a Burning Mine
Through Ventilating Shafts.
MlNONK, III., Dec. 22 -At 5 o'clock
yesterday a fire, which is still burning,
brok out in a mine operated by t be
Oblc-go& Mlnouk Cotd Mining Co.,
situated one mile from the city. The
flames held 200 miners in deadly peril
of their lives. All escaped, however,
and few were injured. The man most
seriously hurt was George Erblaud,
who caused the disaster. He attempted
to light a torch while standing near a
can of konweue. The oil fUmed up.
In his effort to extinguish the Are Erb
laud upset the can of kerosene, which
at once gave the flames great Impetus.
The dry timber lining of the walls of
the main shaft were ablaze tn an in
stant, and tho fire spread with such ap
palling rapidity that It seemed as
though the men In the shaft must per
ish. About luO of them escaped
through tbe main shaft before the Are
rendered it impassable. Two huudred
meu were still at the bottom of the
shaft, and the fire was spreading furi
ously. Tho wildest kind of a panic
prevailed uround the mouth of the
shaft, where tho families of Imprisoned
miners and other gathered.
They found there was not sufficient
hose to reach far enough down the
abaft to be of ubo in extinguishing tbe
flames and the Illinois Central at once
dispatched an engine to Eureka for
more hove. It caiue remarkably soon,
tud two gallant fellows raado the at
tempt to descend the shaft. Tbe smoke,
however, was pouring out in such
clouds that tbe men w re dragged back
naif suffocated, and two others seized
tbe hose and Btarted down. They
were also drawn back nearly dead
and a third equally unsuccessful at
tempt was made. Then It seemed that
uuleis tbe men succeeded In escaping
by the ventilating shafts, their hop;
was gone. There were three ventilat
ing shafts, and to thqpe the men in the
mine had rushed, crazed wjth fear,
burned with tbe fallen timbers and
choked and 'blinded by tbe amoke,
which was .rapidly filling tho mine.
Fortunately, every man reached the
foot of one of these shafts and was
quickly drawn to the surface. Inside
of an hour after Erbland bad started
the tire all the man wero safe above
Mauy reached the upper air in a
desperate condition, but medical aid
and freah alrsoon brought them around,
and all will recover, with the exception
of Erbland, whose Injuries were re
ceived from the explosion of a cau of
oil. At midnight the lire was burning
furiously and wbb beyond control. It

Washington, Dec. 22, The house
committee ou foreign attuirs considered
the resolutions introduced by Hill and
Boutelle relative to the Hawaiian pol
icy of the administration, and decided
to report a substitute, which, when re
ported by Chairman MuCreary, of the
committee, caused a scene In the house.
Only three Republican members of the
committee vere present. The meeting
was not marked by auy lively demon
stration. Following Is the substitute
for the Hill aud Boutelle resolutiens:
Whereas, It appears from the execu
tive communications sent to the house
of representatives that tho Uplted
Btates minister and the United States
naval forces at Honolulu exceeded their
authority iu January, 1603, and Illegal
ly aided lu overthrowing tbe constitutional-government
in Hawaii, and Bet
ting up in its place a provisional gov
ernment, not republican In form, In
opposition to will of the minority of tbe
peoplo of Hawaii; therefore,
Resolved, That It Is tbe son so of this
houso that such Intervention by the
government, Its representatives or
armed forces Ib contrary to tbe policy
aud the traditions of our repnbllu and
the spirit of our constitution, and
should be and Is emphatically con
demned. Representative Storor, of the com
mittee, offered a substitute for the reso
lution adopted by tho majority, vhloh
was rejected and which Btorer wished
to Bubdtitute as a minority report, fol
lowing la the resolution wnlcn em
bodies tho votes of the minerity:
Whereas, Executive communications
to congress dlsolose that the executive
department has furnished to a minister
plenipotentiary of the United States
secret Instructions to consplro with the
representatives uud agonts of a deposed
discarded monarchy for the overthrow
of a friendly republican government,
duly recognized by all civilized nations
to which said minister was accredited,
and to whloh his public Instructions
pledged tbe good faith and Bympathy
of tho presideut, government aud peo
pie of the United Btates. .
Resolved, That It Is the sense of this
house that any such Intervention by
the executive of the United Btates, Its
civil or mlllUry representatives or offi
cers, without the authority of congress,
Is dangorouaand unwarranted, an In
vasion of the rights and dignities of
tbe congress of the United States and a
violation of the law of nations; and
further, that the manner ofauoh at
tempted intervention by the executive
and the methods used were unworthy
of the executive department of the
United Btatea, while the confessed In
tent of such intervention is contrary to
the policy and traditions of tbe republic
and the spirit of the constitution.
Washington, Dee. ei tub report
of the minority members or the ways
aud means committee wan submitted
to the house yesterday arternoon. i nai
portion of the report discussing the bill
generally was prepared by Rjed. The
report ys: "The most surprising
thing about this bill is the fcet that It

It unfortuuaU-ly happens, also, that
,.Z r- mttrll u another man'a flu-
for revenue tariff and yet does not raise
the revenue; It pretouds to give pro
tection but destroys It In every way.
It says to the manufacturer, for you we
furnish free coal, Iron ore, w.ml uud the
markets of the world. Iuntiad, how
ever, It furnishes a crop of uncmles,
men who dig in tho mines aud raise
sheep; for it really creates what Its ene
mies falsely charge agaluBt Republican
protection-privileged class, agulnst
which the mines and field will array
themsolves and with which the priv
ileged class does not care to be priv
ileged. What exact eflecl tho proposed
duties would have on tho general rto
of wages in this country can only be
determined by an actual test, but it Is
not dlllloult to see that It will be de
pressing. An ad valorem duty, if
prices could bo actually determined,
would be fair, but unfortunately prices
are very much a matter of opinion aud
in asuiucu ub the duty depends upon
the price, a cheat on price Is n cheat on
duty, aud not only Is the government
cheated, but tho manufacturer I cheated
out of tho protection promUed him.
How tho great deficit lu our resources,
aa a nation, Is to be filled no one knows,
unlesa the president, anticipating lu
his message to congress tho report of
tho committee on ways and means
shall afford to tho commltleo Itself the
wished for cluo.
The report characterizes tho woolen
schedule as destructive of tho wool
growiug Industry, the seventh tn value
of produotB among all branches of agri
culture. At the prices now prevailing
lu foreign markets our farmers cannot
produce wool without absoluto loss.
During the past year the threat of
free wool has depreciated tho value of
shoo? and wool lu the United Btates
fully f60,000,000. Over 100,000.000 are
Invested, and a quarter of a million
operatives are employedlu the manu
facture of woolens and this Industry Is
oflcred up an' a sacrifice ou tho altar of
(arid reform. Attention Is directed to
the efleot of placing iron ore on tho free
list. Tho result of this will be tho loss
of over half a million In revenue, and
to admit to competition with American
ores, foreign ores produced at from one
fourth to one-tenth the cost of produc
ing American ores. Great slguillcance
is attached to the fact that while hoop
and band Iron and steel bear thirty per
cent, duty iron ore and atoel ties for
baling cotton are on the freo list. The
cotton scale shows the same luuonslst
epcy. The removal of tho duty from
bituminous coal la considered au amaz
ing proposition for the reason that coal
has little value except what It gets from
labor; It is the most universally preva
alent of all the subjects of American
Industry; the plate glsss luduniry la
cited aa a splendid example of tho bene
fits of the protective system. Ameri
can competition and enterprise have
reduced prices one-half In the past
ten years; twelve plants with a capital
of 18,000,000 employ 8000 men and sup
port 40,000 peopl.

The city council should meet audi

Marshal Mluto cannot say that It la tiot
a fulr proposition. That laboring men
should bo discharged and his high sal
ary continual is an unjust proposition
on the face ot It. The mayor's plan If
carried out Is to contlnuo the present
salaries; to continue warrants at a dis
count and high rate of Interest; to con- ,
tlnue to gain for our city tho reputation
for repudiation aud prevent going oats

program for a Republican mayor, R
publicans should not bo deceived Into
supporting It mi the ground that duty
to party requires it. No such revolu
tionary methods should ho counten
anced In our city government. The
members of the city council committed
to reform should uot be drives from
their purposo by any such methods.
The plan la to force tho city to repu
diation; to retain tho presout force oa
high salaries; to continue tho present
state of bankruptcy and to stop all pub
llo Improvements and build up a politi
cal ring. Dies any lutolllgont bulBa
