Halifax, N. 8., May 1 IB.—A gentleman ro turned from tho burning colliery says relays of mon have boon at work sinco yesterday filling up tho slopes and air-shafts with clay. Tho fire still burns ns fiercely as ovor. Ho wont within a fow foot of. tho mouth of tho shaft, from wmoh bluo sulphurous flames woro ascending twenty or.thirty foot. Tho roar from tho burning roino was something torrifto. Denso volumes of smoko continue to como from tho sev eral air-shafts. No adequate idea , can bo formed of tho torrlblo disaster. Tho com puted loss of property Is enormous, but ’ is nothing In comparison with tho loss of Ufa. Ail tho wood-work in tho mino is burned, and experienced minors say it is ono mass of burning rnlna nolow. 1 'jjha causes that lod to tho disaster aro not, OB ’ stated, owing to tbo strike of the minors, but to powder having boon permitted to boused in onu of tho bods worked by a minor named Robert McLeod, who insisted upon Rising it unless ho received higher rates for cutting without it. At tho Inquest, yesterday, several important facts came out in evidence, which show reckless ness or carelessness in tho work of supervision in dangerous parts of tho mine. Tho first wit ness, Thomas Lowtliior. testified that tho mino was carefully attended during tho tlmo tho minors wore out on a strike, so that there could have boon no accumulation of gas when tho miners returned to tho works on Teusday. The second witness, James Dunstou, who was in tho mino when tbo fire occurred, testified that ho found nothing unusual iu tho mino when ho descended. When tho word was passed that tho mino was onfiro. all hands wore requested to go and put It out. Those who refused to assist wore ordered to leave, as by remaining they would only impede the progress of tho others. Had the men obeyed tho ordor when it was found possible to stop tho fire, there would have boon. plenty of time to gqt it out. Tho same level had been on fire be fore. A man was always stationed .hi tho cabin to give tho minors information os to tho condition of thoir places, and to warn thorn of danger. Those regulations wore at tended to, as wore also tho furnaces for venti lating the same levels. Alexander Larimer was next called. Tho gist of his evidence was in tho statement that if the powdor bad not boon used by the McLeod pit it -would have been all right to-day. "When ho heard tbo alarm given ho went to tho pumping pit, having beard cries for help, and assisted John Bonnoli to tho surface. Adam Larimer testified that bo was in tbo mine when the flro took place. When the ox plosion occurred ho made Ida way out as fast as possible. When ho got to the slope ho found it obstructed with boxes and rubbish. There wore over thirty men lying down at this point, ail evidently injured, as they wore groaning. Borne wore as if they could neither move nor spook. Larimer was obliged to atop and crawl over their bodice. in order to mako Ida way out of the alopo. On the way up ho fouud aevoral men. who wore lying down, crying and groaning, but unable to help theraaolves. Ho waa the last man alive oat of. tbo pit, and was helped out by Ida brother. Passed a man dead on the top landing. Andrew McLeod, brother of Ilobert McLeod, testified that ho was in the lord cutting coal whore the fire took place. They always worked their place with sulphur. Can't say ho found much gas in the ford. Always used powder. Fired two abets, and waa prepar ing to fire a third when ho discovered that the ford was on fire. Endeavored to put it out .by ordinary mcaue, with wot bags, but, after work ing for over fifteen minutes, and the lire gaining "on.them,.colled for .assistance, and- two men came. Was exhausted, ami made for the alopo. All of thou wont out to tho landing, shutting the door behind, them. Joo Richardson then came down and directed the men to got at tbo fire, but bo 'soon returned and gave directions for all tho men and horses to come out. Witness then started for tbo opening, and had scarcely reached tho mouth of tho slope when the mine exploded, throwing him out ou the bank. There were some men he- Rind him and one before him. Tho Inspector of Minos,- Fool, Bold witness’ testimony relating to tiring of allots bad tho moat important bearing on the cause of tho dis aster. It won evident that tho first and second allots bad a decided effect, and blew down tbo coal there. Tbo third shot, bowovor, was only blown out-shot. It oponod a crack in tho bench, which than became a reservoir of accumulating gas. Tho lattor immediately ignited, and set lire to tho coal which burned with groat rapidity, engendering intense boat and smoko, making it almost impossible for the men to put out the flames. ; At 8 o'clock tho inquest was adjourned to meet to-day at II o'clock. Bobort McLeod, wbo fired tho shot which evi dently caused tho disaster, is too ill to attoad the inquiry. Tho minora appear to attribute tho direct cause of the calamity to tho refusal of tho manager to give an extra price to McLeod for getting out coal iu his ward, thereby enabling him to dis pense with tho use of powder. If tho uso of powder, as stated, was prohibited In that ward, then.it was tho duty of some one to boo that tho regulations wore strictly enforced. To give some idea of tho extout of tho explosion from the Bovoral air-shafts, It may bo stated of an. old ono close to the minor’s residence, and distant from tho mines some 600 or 700 yards, ' that huge pieces of timber were driven through it up* into the air, some falling on the roofs of liouass and crashing through them. It was truly heartrending to pass through tho square of buildings where tho families of tbo lost minors reside. Tho window-blinds are drawn, and tho poor widows of mon whoso charred remains are far down in the burning sepulchre mourn incessantly and piteously the loss of thoso who havo Wan so suddenly takon from thorn. As you pass cioeo to tbo saddened homos of thoso families, you can hour them sobbing and crying. 4 p. m.—Two or throe witnesses woro examin ed at tho inquost this afternoon, whoso evidence wont to show that most of tho mon were in the elqpo, endeavoring to got out when tho explosion took place. This foot was further corroborated by a number of powder cannons which tho minora carry coming out of tho mouth of tho slaw with tho second explosion. John Lorimer, who formerly worked in tho mine on tho lovol bolow tho one worked by Mc- Leod, testifies as to tho dangerous character of the room, from tbo constant accumulation of gas, and was obliged to quit work because the powder could not no used in it. This ended tho toAlmony. Lateh—Tho jury has returned tho following vojdiot: 41 Wo find that tho miners came to thilr death on tho 18th lust, by an explosion of gas in the Drummond colliery, caused by de rangement of tho ventilation of tbo mine, aris ing from*ftro in Bobort McLeod's ward." They say considerable care was exhibited iu tho man agement of tho men, but express tboir regret tbit powdor was permitted to be used in tho ward worked by Bobort MoLood. A fund for tho roliof of tho distressed widows and orphans will bo raised. Belief moot ings will bo hold this evening In Now Glasgow aul Westvillo. Halifax, May IB—Evening.—Considerable fire is still Issuing from tho slopes, although two workmen aro laboring strenuously to smother It. During the forenoon immense columns of black smoko issued from tho air-shaft at intervals according us tho slopes bccamo choked up. Tho mine is rapidly filling up with water, which loads lo tho hopo that tho conflagration nos spent its * U, i!ho remains of Dunn and Burns woro Interred tins afternoon In tho village cemetery. Both being Odd Fellows, there was a largo turn-out of brethren. Interesting Insurance Case* / Dea Moineb, May 15.—1n the United States 'Circuit Court to-uay, hi tho caao of Hattie 3).
