SALT LAKE CITV, Uta.li, March 21.— With a sound like that of a thunder bolt, Central I'acifie coal mine No. !i, located fl miles out of Evanston, W3-o., blew up about 0 o'clock Wednesday evening-. The explosion in the mine shook the whole country around, wrecking- the power plant, a fan house and several other buildings entailing- heavy loss, but the death roll far overshadows all other considerations. It is estimated that eighty men were in the mine at the time of the disaster, Klght I)odic» IVecovorml. Up to this time eight bodies have been recovered and the terribly blackened charred condition of the remains is such as to leave no hopes that any others will be taken out of the mine alive. All those engaged in the mine were heads of families who lived near the place. As soon as the explosion occurred people streamed out on the roads and rushed for the mouth of the mine by a common impulse, well knowing 1 what had occurred. Wiillliic of tin, JIurenviMl. The air was filled with the terrible Cries ot women and children whose • husbands or fathers were at work below, and the scenes as the various bodies were brought to the surface simply defy description. Owing- to the wide extent of the mine workings it will probably bo several days before the full extent of the damage is known or all the bodies recovered. The mine was tho property of the Eocky Mountain company and tho disaster will deprive the company of half its supply. The damage caused and the Joss of life made it the most notable of any coal mine disasters in the history of Wyoming. Kfllcf Tarty at Work.

WASHINGTON, March 21.—The authenticity of the report that Secretary Greshain has demanded the recall of Lorin A. Thurston. Hawaiian minister at Washington, is not doubted here. Mr. Thurston has DO official information, of the re- q.uest, .but, according- to an intimate friend, has no doubt that- such Action has been taken by Secretary Greshain. It Is not likely, however, that Mr. T-hurston will leave this country. He will continue, it is staled, to look after Hawaiian interests iu an unoilicial manner. Mr. Thurston, it is said, does not know who will be his successor, but it is intimated that Frank Hatch rnny be selected. Before answering Secretary Greshain it is presumed the Hawaiian government will communicate with its minister and seek his version of the circumstances before .acceding to Secretary Grosham's request, which, ii?. a muasuru. implies a personal a-fl'ront to the individual under these eircum- sl.ance.s. Further developments will be watched with great interest, as a declination to accede to Secretary fircsh- ara's request doubtless would be followed l)y Minister Tluirstoa being given liis passports, au act equal to severance of diplomatic relations.

March 21.—The prospect of serious complications which threatens the United States through probable European encroachment on Venezuela and Nicaragua has assumed n. phase of such danger to the principle laid down in. the Monroe doctrine, that a special cabinet conference was held at tho white house. Wednesday 1 afternoon to consider the subject. There is no doubt whatever that, these subjects :ire considered by the president and Secrelnry llrohhaui ys of much greater import to this country than the Alluiuea incident or the recall of Minister Thurston and must be handled with unusual ilelicac3- and with the knowledge that a misstep may plungu the {fovernmentinto embarrassing complications with not one but several of the principal European nations. Th<j conference was attended by the president. -Secretary Oresham, Secretary Carlisle. Attorney General Olney and Secretary Lamont. While the conference was necessarily of a strictly secret character, it is learned ou good authority that no definite line of action wa.s agreed to, The NU^iriLKimn .Slttuitlon. Secretary Gresham took with him to the white house the oflicinl copies of iiincli of the recent correspondence on both the Vene/.uelan and the Nicaraguan situations, and , ho remained with Mr. Cleveland some time after his colleagues had left.

Great Britain's ultimatum to Nicaragua deiaandiug an indemnity for the expulsion of Mr. Hatch, the British consular agent, from .UlueJields, and the report that a British warship is On her way to enforce the demand is Uie latest known serious phase of the difficulties growing out of the Bluefields affair, and as action by this government may involve a new construction of the Monroe doctrine, it cim be seen how slowly and carefully the president and his advisers are obliged to feel their- way to prevent any possibility of blunder or to neglect any advantages that might weaken the practical sponsorship which the United States government holds over the South American and Central American republics, }|»B StroiiK AdverxarioH. In the Venezuelan affair, the United States government finds itself opposed to such strong adversaries as Gre;it Britain, France and Germany, with Belgium as an incidental factor. The scttlcmii'it of the claim of Great Britain* to certain Venezuelan, territory * is the main cause for a.larm, and to this is added the prospect that Germany will send warships to collect a large amount of money guaranteed German con tractors for the construction of the Central Venezuela railroad. France and Belgium have a common ground for action disturbing to the peace of the little South American republic, namely: The expulsion of the French and Belgium ministers from that country. Both governments have strongly protested against the expulsion and France will send a naval vessel to take their envoys home. The Monroe doctrine and its ramifications contain ample authority, it is said, for the United States to display an active interest in the threatening attitude of Great Britain and Germany, and while the probable action of France and Bel- g'iuin does not seemingly come within the scope'of the doctrine, it is understood to be tjie belief of this government that all four of the powers involved will join issues in opposition to the United States to secure their several ends, and such amalgamation is likely to beget a desire on the part of all to extend their dominions. Infractions to Bayard. "WASHINGTON, March 21.—Great Britain must show its hand in regard to Nicaragua, according to the tenor of a communication made to her majesty's government by Secretary Greshatu.
