The Defense Produced What Purported to re Copies of the Urn vcsenrl Hegistry Lists, but Cross Examination of Town Clerk Yoorliecs Showed Hint Some oT the nooks Had Only Been Filed Tbis .Uorninc Cbanjes and Significant Markincs Pointed Ont to tlie Jury. The evidence in Ibo McXnne trinl is in at Inst, having taken more than three weeks, the summing up for the detenso is under - way and the caee Trill bo given to the jury to - morrow afternoon. The sensational epiBodoofthemorningaudone of the most striking of the whole trial, was the production, by the defensn of the copies of the registry lists which the election inspectors say they had in their houses when the (Jaynor copyists tried to And them. Mr. Eoderick tried to put them in yesterday with a certificate of the town clerk as to their genuineness. Mr. Shepard objected, insisting that the town clerk be produced and exclaimed "Wo deny that those aro the copies of the registry lists." This was obviated this morning and his cross examination showed that part of the documents had been in the hands of tho defense, and led to the claim that the copies in live of tho districts have been fraudulently made and that they were not in existence on election day. The inspectors who are supposed to have made them have not been on tho stand. Judge Troy will arctic for the defense this afternoon. General Traoy to - morrow morning uiid Judge Bartlett will charge the jury to - morrow afternoon. The prosecution ban abandoned the third count in the indictment, whieh charges deception at tho moment tho lists wore concealed. After the evidence reported on another pagv, tho trial continued in th!3 order: Clarence W. Hughes denied carrying arms to Gravesend, or that any of hi3 party had any to his knowledge. Edward M. Grout was recalled by Mr. Rod - crick and admitted carrying a light walking cane to Gravesend. Then Mr. Eodoriek asked about an affidavit which Mr, Grout made in the contempt proceedings, and as always in this case when one lawyer is on tho stand and one of his opponents examines, r. good deal of heat was developed. In that affidavit 3Ir. Grout stated that'tho only person who had not made an affidavit denying carrying arms was Mr. Henderson. In those proceedings no affidavit from Benslcy was road, but Mr. Grout snid he made an affidavit for Beasley and handed it to the counsel. 'Don't you know that affidavit was suppressed sii that Judgo Barnard should not know that auy ol your party carried arms?" cried Mr. Bodenck. "I do Dot know anything of the sort." Mr. Grout snapped. 'Iid you have anything to do with any suppression?" ' Judge Bartlett uskert. and Mr. Grout said ho did not. This closed the wtso of the prosecution except as to tho evidence of Thomas Gardner Mason, who is on his way from Nun - tucket and who will La put on if he reaches the court before the argument begins. Mr. Roderick called the town clerk of (rraves - nd, John L. Yoirhoes, and put in evidence what purported to b the copies of the registry lists made by the flection inspectors and kep'j in their bouses.

"No especial reason," said Mr. Voorhees. "Because I thought Mr. Roderick wanted to see thorn." "Do you let anybody cart away the records of your office at their own sweet will ?" asked the court in apparent astonishment. "No. sir," said the witness slowly. T think it is incumbent upon you to give some reason." snid Judge Bartlett severely.

"Will you look at the signatures ef Cunliffe, Stewart and Clark, and tho date November 7, 1833, after tho signiture Frank D. Clark?" Mr. Shepard asked. Mr. Eodoriek objected and the judge asked to see the list. Mr. Shepard called his attention to the signature and date, but Judge Bartlett dove to the end 01 the book and asked where the certificate wa6 showing that they wore copies. "There is none, your honor,'." Mr. Shepard said, softly. "J hen those papers are cot evidenoe at all, said the court. Mr. Eoderick - insisted that they were In regular form and Mr. Shepard said that the proee - cutlon did not wish to press the objection which tho court had suggested. On redirect, Mr. Eo lerlok asked if Gerretson, Morris and Bausenwein. whan thoy took the lists, didn't tell him that the lists had been asked for in court and wore to be produced. Tho witness said he thought not; that they told bim he Eoderick wanted them and he, sent sent them along. He thought that something was said about production in court. Mr. EodericK asked if the witness had not given records .to Mr. Shepard. Mr. Voorhees said he had not except in court or in the grand jury room undr subpoena. Then Mr. Roder - lckasked about tho copies whiah Mrs. Petten - gil! made and Mr. Veorhoe3 said that she had nine copyists in his office; he didn't supervise their work and didn't know whether or not she or her assistants made marks or changes on the lists. Hi! said that tho policeman. Storms, merely made checks opposite the names of voters m his office and made no other changes. Mr. Shepard showed that the witness hadn't given him a record except in court or in the grand jury. Mr. Eoderick tben offered the copies In evidence. Mr. Shepard made the objection that thoy should bo proved by the Inspectors who had" them in tholr custody, and none of whom have been put on tho stand, or so far as tho questions of tho prosecution have shown has been in court. After some discussion Mr. Shepard withdrew that objection and the much discussed Books wore reaily in ovidenco. Mr. Eoderick said he proposed to read tho copies and tho originals to the jury. When he got to his chnir. however, he began to point out marks and checkings. "1 thought vou wore going to read them," General Tracy said. "I dldu't mean to read the names, that would take too much time," Mr. Eoderick rejoined. "Perhaps you have chuazod your mind, you have that right," the court suggested. Then Sir. Eoderick pointed out that the things Mr. Shepard objected to in tho copies from the Fourth district was that tho checks opposite names on one set wore in blue pencil, and those on the other in black petcil. Mr. Eoderick sat down and Mr. Shepard took his turn. Ho pointed out that there were no cheeks opposite the names in the copies from tho First district and that the numbers of the ballot stubs which appear opposite tho names in the original did not appear in the copies at all. In tho Fourth district Mr Shepard pointed out that the stub numbers did not appear in eithor the original or tho copies. In the Fifth district, Mr. Shepard said that tho names on tbo pages of the original and the copies did not correspond. Mr. Eoderick replied that tho names were all there, but the order was not the same. Mr. Shepard passed over tho original oopies in the Sixth district with the romiirk, "No claim of fraud is made in regard to the copies from that district." "Do you mean that you charge fraud in regard to the copies from the other districts?" asked Mr. Roderick. "We claim that tho copies in the First, Second and Third districts aro very liaudulent," Mr. Shepard retorted. Mr. Boderlok thon read the affidavits of Benjamin Cohen and .lohu W. Murphy in tne mandamus proceedings which has been put in evidence, but not road. Then he started iu to read the McKano afll - davlt sworn to in Kerrigan's before Peter H MeNulty. The paper had no lllo mark and Mr. Shepard claimed that the affidavit had not bee put in evidence Judge Bartlett, whose memory for details Is a wonder to every ono who practices before him, remembered that the affidavit was put In evidence and that the absence of a mark was an accident. Then the affidavit was read and tbo case on both sides closed at 12:H(). Mr. Shepard called attention of the court to tho fact that General Tracy proposed to comment on tho redistricting of tho town, and after a statement as to the order of argument tho court tooK recesB. Judge. Troy opened tho argument for the defense at the beginning of the afternoon session. He will speak ail the rest of the day. THE BATH IKON WORKS BURNED.

The extent to which somo of the foreign communities regulato the private affairs of their members is illustrated by the suit of Belle Eisenberg against Ike Eisouberg for support. Ike Eiscnberg has been iu this country a year. He eume from Cracow, llussia, and settiod in the Hebrew colony in Moore street. He nnd his brother Abraham had money and went into tho clothing business. They wero doing well, and Iko had settled down to live with a handsome and energetic young woman named Lena Weobsler, when thore arrived at hi,s house, 102 Moore street, a poorly dressed woman and child. The woman claimed Eisonborg as her husband, and, what was worse, stood ready to prove her claim. Eisenberg did not shut the door in her face or deny his Identity. Ho invited her in tbe house and explained that ho had run away from her and Eussia because he had been drafted into tho army. She lived with him and Miss Weobsler about a month and thero was constant trouble. The young woman wns vory attractive and bright and the wife declares that she was neglected. Her husband finally left her again nnd she had him arraigned before Justice Watson on a charge of abandonment. This was withdrawn on his promise to provide support and ho was released. He did not provide support but instead ot that made all preparations to run away. This being diisovured he was rearrested on an order issued by Judge Clement and is now in jail. liTher light for her rights tho wife is supported by (he Hobrow Charitable society of which Mr. Henry Epstein, the banker of 44 Moore street is the president. It is local to the colony. It was through tho instrumentality of this society that Mrs. Eisenberg first learned that her husband was in this country and the funds that brought her hero to confront him were provided by members of the society. Mr. Epstein swears that Eisenberg told him that he did not love his wife, but did lovo Miss Wochsler and that ho would ruu away from his wife. Abraham Eisenberg. brother of Ike. disappeared as soon as tho trouble began. Ike says that Abraham took nil tho money belonging to beth. Max Hallheimer, who appears for tho woman, doubts this statement. He said this morning : "It is a subterfuge. Ike and Abraham are acting in collusion. Abraham disappeared because Ike wanted nim le go so that ho could tell this story of the disappearance of tho money. When his wife ilrst" arrived from Eussia he offered her S100 if she would got a divorce from him a rabbi's divorce. Ho said: Yoa must eomo with me to the rabbi and I will give yon S100 for a divorce.' She refused to do it. He has employed Lawyers Levy fc Bachrach and they havo associated Mr. Moran with tbem and all have got their foes. He can pay for a divorce or for lawyers, but he cannot support his wile." Eisenberg's bail is Axed at S1.000. Mr. Moran has counseled him to remain in jail. THE POST OFFICE APPROPRIATIONS. An Importacit Clia - iic f ropoieil Whicti Would IHollefiJ ESroolil yil.

"Whenever a prisoner trios to get away from here we endeavor to find out who has given bim assistance in his undertaking. I put Furman in the dark coll on bread and water and kept him there until a week ago When tbe doctor said he had better be taken eut. Unless he gives mo tho information I want, which he has so far stubbornly rofused to do, he will probably go back to the dungeon on tbe same diet."' Incidentally tho warden remarked that the experience of wardens all over the country showed that the lash was far moro effective than tho dark cell in bringing refractory prisoners to terms.

EZe SSrldtr" !Ja!!way Hi - !nr Kli!vnleil 'JTruin. couli.iui'i! Anthony liarretl. vico president of the Brooklyn elevated, was woll pleaded this morning at the adoption of the High s:reet plans by tho bridge trustees. To an E.u;i.i: reporter ho said that he thought tho trustees should go further, hat is disc - ::t:nno tho railway. Mr. Barrett thought thai I wo additional tracks should be built and the elevated trnias 1 allowed to run over tho bridge on li - iPof the bridge railway. If this was done, he snid', the s - levated roads would eny to the trustees a royalty on each pnssengi'i - equal to the amount now earned by the nable road. J - as - si ngors could thus be carried dire - tly :o New ''ork. By this w. - aris. Mr. liarretl said, the travel on tho bridge eoubi lie increased and the problem of incroasing the present facilities solved. .Mr. Gonudy of the Kings County elevated was not iu favor of the High street plans as adopted. 1'asseugers ou his road, he said, to reach the bridge railway would have to walk llfty to ono hundred foot more than they do now. General Jourdan expressed himself as against the plans adopted. The railroad facilities, he claimed, under them could not bo increased to their utmost limit, and so tho plans were defective. The Tillary street plan, in his opinion, should have been adopted Tho Property Owners' association, composed ; of ownors of property near High street, were jubilant at tho adoption of tne High street plans. imOOKLYX II EHJ f ITS UAIIiEOAD REPORT, u Cloud Coiis:dL - rng tlio XJirjcs, It Is tnc (or tile Quarscr.

Police Commissioner Welles had an hour's work before him this morning m disposing of the cases of sixteen policemen against whom charges had been made. The offenses were for the most part of a trivial nature. The commissioner again emphasized his dislike for con - tactuai relations between the policeman and the saloon. Patrolman John Perdue of the Thirteenth preoinct was accused of having ieft his post and gone Into his liquor store. He denied his guilt, but after all the testimony was in the commissioner looked him sternly In the eye and said: "Officer Cellins, you have not boen on tbo force a great while, yet you know what I have said about my intention to break up this practice of policemen going into saloons.

"This looks vory like whipsawing this case between me and the magistrate," said Commis sioner Welles. ' 'I will set the trial for next Friday." Patrolmen Thomas F. Hickey of the Eight eenth precinct admitted that ho feli asleep in a church when ho should have boon on post, but said he went in to get warm. The nap will cost him five days pay.

I St. T.ouis. Mo.. February J3 A special to the I Hijjiuhlic, dated yesterday from Guthrie, O. T., says: A terrible blizzard struck this territory j early Sunday morning nnd continues with ter - rible severity. Tho wind blows a perfect galo j and snow is two feet aeop on the ground. Eo - i ports of donth and suiTering oomo in to - day fr0lrl a parts 0f the territory. In the Cherokee strip, recently opened, tho people are In a precarious condition. At Ked Rook, James Blount and family, consisting of a wife and two littlo daughters aged 10 und 12 years, were almost frozen to death. Mr3. Fannie Spencer, a nome - stouder, twelve miles from Cross, was found frozen stiff. All her fuel had burned out. Many people are still living in tents and as fuel is scarce their condition is awful. James Mulligan, living four miles south of Perry, was found this evening frozen to death and his partner, Harvey Nowcomb, died irom exposure and cold flfteon minutes after being found. At Ponca Mrs. Jennie Cramer and two children, Lizzie and Sallie, wor.; discovered frozen stiff in a coyote's burrow ten yards from their abode. Henry Melton, a cowboy, who was with Buffalo BUI at the world fair, was discovered by a party of hunters early this morning dead under his horse, near Newkirk. At Anadarka, two Indian pupils were found yesterday evening buried under a snow bank. Upon being taken to a house one ot the ohildren immediately expired. The other, however, shows signs of recovery. Late this evening a report reached here that a family named Sears, residing on a claim near Woodward, wore found frozen to death, but no particulars can be obtained. A courier just in from Alva, another atrip town, reports groat suffering among the homesteaders hear there. Over one hundred bead of horses and cattle wero frozen nnd a volunteer relief committoo are now scouring the country gathering together the people and earing for them in the school housos. Miss Jennie Johnston, a young Indian teacher who came to Alva recently from Soranton, Pa,, left her school Saturday night for her boarding house. She has not been seen since. No reports have been received from other weBt side towns, but it Is certain the suffering is great, as the west side people are living mostly in tents. All trains are delayed. Word cemei from Cross that Sherman Stone aud family, consisting of a wife and live children, wero found sitting about a stove with their throats eut from car to ear. The following note, found oa a table nearby Stone, gives a horrible story of murder and suicide in connec - t - ion with tho storm: Wood all gono: Mollis frozen to death, tho rest of us freezing. I have killed my family and now kill myself to provent further suffering. God havo mercy on us." Stone was a homesteader and lived in a tent. It is thought that after the snow melts hundreds of dead settlers will be found along with remains of thousands of cattle. A CYCLONE DOWN" SOUTH. Portions ot LouisUiiia and HIissieippi Swept ) - Ji Fierce Wind. St. Louis. Mo., February 13 A special to the .Republic from New Orleaos, says: A cyclone, accompanied by heavy rain, passed over central Louisiana and Mississippi last night about 11 o'clock, doing considerable damage, and especially in the seotio travorsed by tbe Illinois Central railroad. It is reported that Newton, Miss., has been wiped off the map, but this lacks confirmation on account of the wires being down. Just on the outskirts of Wesson. Miss., the residence of V. S. Clenn was un roofed and from Simpson's house was turned completely around and twisted. It next struck the residenco ol John yuary and John and Albert c lynn. completly demolish ing tho two lormer, while tne latter was taicen up in tact and set down some distance from where it had originally stood, ynary s wile and children wero lifted up and deposited fully one hundred feet away, escaping with only u fow slight bruises and scratches. The damage to fences und outbuildings in the surrounding country is considerable. The section north and west of Meridian was also visited, but no material damage is reported beyeno. the upreoting of trees and leveling of fences. A Bpecial just received lrom JacKson savs a torriiic cyclone passed betweon Martinsville and Buregard, forty miles south ol here, at a late hour last night. A great many houses wore swept from their foundations, trees twisted, fenc3 destroyed and several people killed and a great many seriously hurt. Sr. Louis, JJlo., I'ouruary is a special to tue Republic from Montgomery, Ala., says: ''Early yesterday morning a cyclomo passed over Troy, unroofing the big school buildings and blowing down a church and several houses. It then passed in a westerly direction through the country, leaving ruin an u desolation la its wate. Several negroos are reported killed between Troy and Dunham. At the latter place two churches and a number of houses wer blown down, several people being injured, but none so far as heard, killed. Meager particulars only could be heard Irom those killed. Tho telegraph wires were blown down for some distance. It is impossible to estimate the loss." TflE BLIZZARD 16 OVER OUT WEST. Traffic Itapidiy Ktortlncr I'p Tile Weather itt Clear mid Cold. Chicago, 111., February 18 Mails from the East and Southeast wore badly delayed to - dny by tho blizzard. The Miehlgau Southern train from New York arrived eight hours late. The Monon from Cincinnati was twelve hours late nnd othor trains were equally delayed. Mails irom the West were about on time. In Chicago tho blizzard is over and traffic has been re - sumod. St. Louis, Mo., February 13 Advices to - day from all parts of Missouri, Southern Illinois, Northern Arkansas and contiguous territory are that the storm has been replaced by clear, cold weathor. Traffic is rapidly resuming its normal condition. TUB STOKM IX NEW ENGLAND. Very Severe in Il:ta.uSitiKet;n but tVol Specially wo 5'a.rtlicr Kortli. Boston, Mass., February 13 Tho blizzard whoso approach was made on time yesterday afternoon is still raging in a milder dissipation of its force. At 2 o'clook this morning it was at its height. The wind was blowing from tha northeast at the rate of sixty miles per hour and the thermometer was '20 dogrees above zero. From that time tho wind abated considerably and at 9 o clock this morning was blowing at twenty - j six miles pur hour. Boston lias not seen such a severe storm for. yours. Eleven inches of snow have fallen on tho levtl. The streets are in a terrible condition. On every line the cars are blocked and many telophone and telegraph wires are down. Buildings are white with the snow that has blown against them. Many of the schools are closed. "General traffic will bo simply impossible to - day. The railroads from the south and east are terribly blocked. Through trains on the Boston and Maine, both eastern and western divisions are from thirty to forty - five minutes late. Those on tho Fitchburg aro about forty minutes late, while those on the Boston and Albany and Old Colony vary from thirty minute, to an hour. Suburban trains are delayed from ton to twenty minutes. All business along tho water front is at a standstill. Many schooners are out and ill reports of them are looked for. The observations ol tlio weather bureau show that tho storm is severest along tho coast and in Southorn New England. In Northern Vermont only three inches ol snow have fallea, while at Eastport, Ale., only a high wind has teuched. Reports are beginning to come in of the severity of tho storm in other places. MAILS DELAYED BY THE STORM And the Vesneln In tile Bay Look Like u Fleet of Arctic Wha.!cn. The storm did littlo or no damago to shipping in New York bay. The South Brooklyn and Staten Island ferryboats made regular trips throughout the night. It was somewhat thick on tho water, but not enough so to prevent pilots from seeing far enough ahead to avoid collisions. Vessels in the harbor, on account of tho freezing weather, looked to - day liko aii Arctic whaling fleet. Thoix shrouds, running gear, masts and yards are thickly coated with ice. All ships expecting to soil today had their crews aloft with clubs beatinp - the ice from the rigging in order that they might be onablad to handle tbe sails. Quite a number of accidents, due to falls on icy pavements, were reportod to tbe New York police to - day. Tho high wind and the cold penetrated the bndly protected apartments in somo of tho poorer quarters, and a number of sick persons wore forced to appeal to the police and ask to bo removed to hospitals. Four deaths were reported which the police consider were due indirectly to the severe weather. From the reports received thid morning by Superintendent Jackson of the railway mail servioe in the Now York post office a very serious condition of affairs appears to exist along all tho Western railroads, especially west o Buffalo. The New York Central is the worst sufferer, somo of its Chicago express trains being reported eleven hours late. The Erie road appears to be in batter shape. There is comparatively little delay in state mails, but those from Canada are behindhand. As far as has been learned the Southorn mails are about on time. Weather Prophet Dunn said this morning that there would be no more snow, and that by to - night tbe skirmish line of a cold wave would be folt dletinotly hereabouts. He predicts that the thermometer will go down to 15 degrees or more by to - morrow morning. Fully a foot of snow fell while the storm lasted. The center of the storm is now woll out to sea, off the middle Atlantic eoost, and is traveling directly in the path of the ocean steamships. None of them can hope to escape it; so there are likely to bo some lively tales from the liners getting in for a few days to come. This morning the wind had moderated to twonty - oae miles an hoar here, and Mr. Dunn said it would now be safe for vessels to leave the harbor. STUCK IX A SNOW BANK. The IVorlliport Train Duo Till Mom - iug Stopped by a itig Irrift. At 12 o'clook to - day the Northport train on the Long Island railroad, due at Long Island City at 7:47 A. AI., had not arrived. Tho train was reported stalled in a huge snow Dank betweon Northport and Northport Junction. The snowplow left the yard at Hunter's Point with a force of laborers to dig out the train. The other trains, including these from Greon - port and Sag Harbor, arrived very nearly on time. The storm han badly orippled the Steinway trolley system in Long Island City and Superintendent Moulton has ploughs and a large force of inborers at werk trying to get the roads in running ordor in time to moot the heavy evening travel. ELKCTlilC S1VKKPKBS DO THE BUSIKKSS. The snow storm, which is without question the heaviest ono with which the surface railroads of the city have had to cope sinoe they have been turned into electric roads, has not had any apparent effeot upon them. Early yesterday afternoon tho powerful electric sweepers and the snow plows wero started running over the tracks, and they brushed the streets as clean as could h&7e boen dosired. The according to the reports from the railroad offices, wero not delayed at all at any time during tho continuance of the snow. Ono of tho great advantages of the electric railroad is shown in their power to get along without using anv salt upon the tracks, or at least very little. This does away to a very large extent with the slushy condition of tho streets. The effect of a snow storm upon travel, so far as the - surface roads are concerned, is not important. While it makes more people ride of those who are compelled to go prevents so large a number leaving their houses at all that the travel is about equalized with that of othor days. Thero was no perceptible hind rance to travel on tho elevated roads. DELAY OS THK BEIDGK. Fromv:30to 8:lo this morning no four ear trains were run on tho bridge railway. Snow so choked the switches that only threo car trains could bo switched. As this is the busy time in tho morning much discomfort and annoyance was caused and long waits for cars occurred. The storm was regarded by the men on dnty on the cars and promenades between 2 o'olook last nicht and 5 this morning as one of the severest since tho memorable blizzard. The wind blew so fast that it was dangerous to pedestrian and wagon travel. ilB. WHITE JIOVKS AfiAISST TIIE SNOW. City Works Commissioner White this morning save directions to havo the snow removed from tho following streets : Fultonstreet, Grand street, Broadway, Myrtle avenue. Court street, Atlantic avenue, Hamilton avenue, Greenpoint avenne. Washington avenue. Kent avenuo. Mayor Schieren authorized the expenditure of $10,000 for the work. A hundred horses and cart and several hundred men were put on these streets. NO MAILS FROM L0S6 ISLAND. The storm this morning has raised havoo with tho delivery of the United 8tates mails through out the city, as no mail from the West or South, or from Long Island, was received at the post office this morning. DKEP SNOW UP THE STATE. Gx.ovEr.svrm!. N. Y., February 13 The twen ty - four hour snow storm continues. It is now 15 inches deep. Railroad trains aro delayed con siderably. The Cayudulla eleotric road is unable to run cars, causing much public inconvenience, A MIDWEEK SABBATH IX GREBJTPORT. The Village Almost Entirely Riven Up to a. Itclieiouw Revival.

James Newell i ilelrt tm Await the Action of tho Krttiitl Jury Justice Haggerty in the Myrtle avenue police court this morning hold James Newoll of 230 Tillary street, to await the action of tho grand jury on a charge of robbery. On February 3, James forced his father Edward B. Newell into a bedroom, caught him by the throat and threw him to the floor, then jumped on him and robbed him of a poeketbook containing $27. He then made his escape from the house, and went on a spree in Now York ! with the money. He had 2 cents left when ! arrested live days later. i - FATALLY l. - UURKI! IN A RUNAWAY.

SEVENTEEN MEN ENTOMBED By an Extensive Cave - in Near Wilkesbarre, Pa. LITTLE DOPE OP SAVING AM OF TflEH. The Oaylor Wine, Which Collapsed To - day, Has Been Considered an III - Fated Concern for a Year Past A Month Auo the Surface Dropped and This Let Water in on the Roof To - day tho Entrance Was Completely Closed Rescuers at Work Great Distress. TViLitESBAEBE, To., February 18 An exten sive cave in occurred at the Gaylord slope of the Kingston Cool company, Plymouth, thia morning. Seventeen men are entombed. Rescuers ore hard at work. There is but little hope of getting the men out alive. The Goylor mine or slope has boen considered an ill fated colliery for more than a year past Only a month ago there wns an extensive cave in of the surface, which wonkened the roof of the whole mine. So faras can be learned, the accident to - day was caused by a further depression ot the sur face. This in time caused tho roof of the chambers of the mine to fall, shutting off all mean ot escape for those men who wore within the caved In circle. The superintendent of tbe mine reports that only thirteen men arc entombed, but seventeen are missing. A number of men working in another part of the mine heard the rumbling sounds of the cave in and were fortunate enough to escape. Tne relatives of tne entombed men are gath ered at tho mouth of the slope and their cries 01 distress would movo the stoutest heart. Everything is being done to reach the entombed men. The following are among the men entombed: Thomas Lvyshon, Michael AValsh, Peter McLaughlin. John Arner, Danial Morgan, Joseph uras, a nomas 1'icton. xnomus Jones, mcnara Davis, John Morris, James Kingdom, Thomas Morrison, Thomas Cole. Nenrlvallnio married with large lamilios. It is now believed all the men were caught in the fall of the chambers imd are dead. John Cuddy, who was at work with the en tombed men. escaped with his life by a hairbreadth. Tho fall out him off from tho other workers by about two feet, making a sort of dividing wall between him ana his companions. Immediately after the roof had fallen in he could hear the men who were entombed groaning, then all was silent. He ran and gave the alarm and the work of resouo was at once begun. MRS. EKK'S SIDE. Slie Says ;S2er Son f'otsed Her Checks Before She Disowned Him. Mrs. Anna Maria Erk, the mother of tfc young man, John Erk, whoso tales of privation aro now familiar to readers of the Eagle, this morning abandoned tho reticent attitude which she has maintained ever since the publication of tbe charges against her and made a statement, whiph directly contradicts that of her son in almost every particular. She denies that she ever withheld money that right fully belonged to her son and says he abused her confidence in money matters to such an extent that she had to cut him off entirely. This, she claims, is tbo only reason why she refuses to provide for him. Mrs. Erk lives at 36 Thames street in a flat that is handsomely furnished. She told an Eaolv. reporter this morning that her husband, Joseph Erk, died last winter. Ho was a builder and after his death sho carried on tbe business with her son as business manager. He collect ed tbe rents ana purchased all the material used in the business. "It was soon after my husband's death that my son met Miss Maud Vogel and wanted to marry her. Miss Vogel was warned by Dr. Schmetter of 7S8 Flushing avenue that my son was suffering from epilepsy, bat sho said that did not make any differenca "She told me that my son threatened to commit suicide on his father's grave if she did not marry him. I paid the. expanses of the wedding, whioh amounted to 83,000, and gave them $400 to start on. Soon after his marriage I found out that my son was forging my name to checks on the Broadway bank. I made these checks good and my son promised not to do it again, which Promise he broke almost as soon as he made it, then determined to haye nothing more to do with him. The last amount I had to pay for him was 75. I gave him 94 on December 21 last and' since that I have given him nothing. Mrs. Erk would sny nothing about the suit that is being brought against her by Mrs. John Erk to recover - $25,000 for inducing her to marry John Erk under false pretenses. The eoadlton of young Mrs. Erk is Bomewhat improved to - day. Mrs. Vogel, her mother, is with her now to take care of the baby, now nbout two woeks old. They are receiving assistance every day from the Williamburgh Benevolent society. JLiebig - Cmpon'' Extract of Beef. For improved and oconomio cookory. SC'ECIAI. ADVERTISEITIENTS.
