Fifty-Six Miners Suffocated
in the Vulcan Mine,
FATAL BALL-ROOM BLAZE
Thirty-Four Lives Lost at a
"Denver, Colo., Feb. lU.-Spe.cinl to
Times from Kcw Castle Colo., says at
11:30 today when the rcscuo was tem
porarily slopped for tho purpose of
Hooding the slope nnd tho chambers
of the mine with nlr, the Vulcan
mine had yielded up four of Its dead.
ITow many more bodies remain with
in Is still a matter for conjecture, but
the most reliable estimate Is forty
seven. Olllclalsof the Vulcan Fuel
company have checked up llfty-ono
lamps given out yesterday morning.
It will probably bo found that four or
tlvc more were given out, but tho
number of victims in any event Is not
likely to exceed fifty-six.
John French Is today the center of
tho curious throng. He is tho mine
carpenter who came out of tho
Vulcan mine yesterday twenty min
utes before the explosion. He says
the gases became so thick that his
eyes gave out, and he was obliged to
quit work. Mine Inspector Gilfllth,
Who is now on tho ground ,,syB this Is
the worst colliery disaster that over
occurred in fcorlca.
Onlclal3 offtho Vulcan company
and others in authority are conferring
ns to how to how to proceed with
the work of clearing tho mine.
Newcastle, Col., Feb. 10. As
Boon as tho news of the terrible ex
plosion reached New castlo yesterday
Superintendent Paul Blount closed
the mines of tho Colorado Fuel & Iron
Company, and, taking all his 'miners,
left for tho Vulcan mlno,whoro active
work was begun aiding in tho at
tempt at rescue.
Thore aro two shafts in addition to
the one in which tho explosion took
placo. In tho upper of these two tho
rescuers aro well in and it Is through
this that tho air can be forced Into
one of tho rooms, but nono of those In
the mine have como out and it in
feared that this is conclusive ovldcnce
that all are dead. In this main
tunnel men nre at work building a
division of boards and can va6s through
which air can be forced on tho one
sldo and the foul gas driven from tho
other, but this 1b slow work and
there is no possibility of getting far
enough in the mine to recover any
bodies while life lasts.
Tho cause of tho explosion, is not
yet known. Tho coal field In which
the Vulcan mine is located has been
troubled with subterranean llres for
years. In many places over a distance
of 80 to 100 miles smoke has issued
from crevices in the rocks since tho
country was first known to white mon
and In latter years moro than one val
uable coal mine has been destroyed by
flro breaking into tho workings. A
little over a year ago tho mines of tho
Vulcan company had to be flooded on
this account, and tho old workings
have never been reopened, thp drift
where today's accident occurred being
a new one. It is thought tho disaster
may havo been caused by breaking1 In
to an Immenso pocket of gas gener
ated by these everlasting fires. Feb
ruary 8 Stato Coal Mine Inspector
Griffith Inspected tho mino and pro
nounced It in splendid condition, and
tho work is said to have been done at
all times In the most careful manner.
The number of victims cannot be
accurately stated, and estimates are
running from 50 to 75. Thoso best in
formed think tho number is likely be
tween 55 or GO.The excitement at pres
ent is so intense that efforts to secure
a complete list are useless.

Carl Albrecht Shoots Down
His Own Wife,
A DRUNKARD'S CRIME.
Fivo Shots Fired Into His Victim'
Marshfielu, Or., Feb. 10. Tills
community was thrown Into n fever
of excitement yesterday afternoon
when It was learned that Carl Al
bright had'Bhot down his wife In cold
Albright had been very cruol to his
wlfo for a number of years, nnd his
trentment became so bitter a week
ngo that sho left htm and Instituted
divorce proceedings. Albright did his
utmost to get her to return, and said
that he talk no longer, but would
kill her. Ycstordny, after Mrs. Al
bright returned from doing a dny's
washing for tho family of John
rreussc, in South Mnrshllcld, ho made
good his threat.
Mrs. Albright had been nt l'rouss'
home nnd was taking n basket of
clothes to her daughor, when Al
bright met her. Ho sooko to hor
about leaving him nnd sho replied by
asking him to go away and lcavo hor
nlono; but this ho would not do. Mrs,
Albright first sought protection nt
Judgo Watson's residence from her
pursuing husband, and a llttlo later
started on hor joruuey but was Inter
cepted by Albright, Mrs. Cox ap
peared then and began fo Intercede for
Mrs. Albright, but ho placed his hnnd
in his hip pocket as If to shoot Mrs.
Cox and tho latter hurriedly got
out of tho way. A few moments
later Albright walked up to his wife
and placed a rcvolvor to hor back,
firing live shots. Aftor tho
first shot, Mrs. Albright fell to the
ground, nnd tho other four'Bhdfs wore"
fired after sho was down. She was
dend when picked up.
When his dastardly deed was com
mitted, Albright turned nnd pointed
his revolver nt himself, as If ho were
going to take his own life, and then
took to hs heels, to get out of reach
of tho oniccre. "William Wcbstor
shadowed him in hlrfllght. Albright
keeping him nt n respectable distance
by threatening to shoot. Webster
pointed out Albright's hiding placo to
Marshal El rod, who wont up to him
nnd ordered hint to hold up his hrfnds;
but Albright only held upouonnd was
In tho uct of shooting at Elrod when
tho latter fired. Tho third shot
brought tho wife-murderer- to the
ground! At first it wns thought that
Albright would die, but on examina
tion it was found ho had received only
flesh wounds. Twobullctsstruckhlm,
ono In tho right shoulder nnd one In
tho right hip.
Albright is now In tho hospltnl.
Tho feeling Is very bitter against
him, nnd n "necktie party" Is talked
of. Mrs. Albright was a woman who
boro a good reputation in this com
munity, and mndo a living for both
herself and husband ut the wash-tub
nnd by nny work sho could get. Al
bright Is u worthless wretch, given to
the drink habit, nnd was drunk when
ho killed his wife.

as n miracle.
According to Deputy Stato Factory
Inspector Dovlnc, avenues of escape
from tho building were plenty. Tho
fifth floor, where tho flames broko out,
Is divided by a partition In two parts,
with a door in tho center, known as
tho fire door, to bo oponcd only In such
emergencies. Tho south part where
tho flro started, was occupied by
Stcttholmcr& Co.. and tho north part
by Van Knnt, Jacobs & Co.
From ono of theso two departments
there was a stairway leading directly
to tho street, If tho door In tho par
tition scpnratlngthc two departments
had been opened, then the employes
of Stetthclmcr & Co., would havo es
caped through Van Znnt & Jacobs'
department and down the north stair
way. Nono of tho employes of Vnn
Znnt, Jacobs & Co. were Injured, ns
farns learned. Tito presumption Is
tho strong door between tho depart
