WHEELING, W, Va., -April 9.—At 8:20 o'clock Tuesday morning- one of the most fearful disasters in the history of Wheeling- occurred. Two of "the hand- somust building-s in the city'fell in with scarcely a moment's" warning-; burying 1 a dozen men within the ruins.- The structures were each five stories high and were occupied by -T. T. Hutchison A Co.. wholesale dealers in leather and hardware und'W. H: Chapman & Sons, dealers in painters' and builders'- supplies. The Cim'pman building- was commenced last fall and was neurmg completion when the accident occurred. The two buildings are ad-' joining-, the Hutehisson being on the corner of Alley O'and Main street. An Awful Criinh. At the hour mentioned the employes heard an ominous crackling-, the big structure gave a convulsive tremble and with a crash the south wall fell, tearing down the flooring and structural work. At the same time G-. W. Clifton, a carpenter at work in Chapman's, noticed the sand falling- out of the wall separating the two building-s. He immediately gave the alarm and started for the door. Before he had reached it bricks and mortar were falling down in showers, and just as he got outside the crash came. William H. Chapman, Walter Chapmaii and Newton Wilson, the proprietors, also escaped without injury other than being bruised by the falling bricks. Fire Adds to the Horror. The ruins caught fire and before the fire department arrived were giving rise to u dense, blinding smoke, which made the work of rescuing 1 very difficult. Doad and "illjtstnff. At noon the following men had been taken out dead, or are known to be lost; Father F. H. Park, vicar genera!: W. S. Pritchard. merchant, Buclthannon. W. Va.; Euuono Burko, an employe ot Huichlsson & Co.; Hobcr Wlnohor, boy, employed by Hutch- Isson & Co.; Hurry Cowl. Western Union mcNsougcr: Michael Horun. The last four named have not yet been found, but it is hardly possible they are alive. They ore supposed to be iu the rear portion of the ruins which is burning so fiercely that rescue wurk is impossible. William Crabbe, the cabman, and Cowl were caught in the alloy. l.lHt of Injured. The injured are: T. T.-Hutchissor., senior member of Hutoh- Isson & Co., ono rib broken and Internal injuries; will probably recover: O. li Williams, carpenter, severe outs on tho head, uot serious: G. \V. Clifton, carpenter, severe cuts on head, not serious; M. J. Ford, salesman, hip broken; Charles Hullcr, ^bookkeeper, und H. Blum escaped unhurt. CaUBfl of Accident. The cause of the accident was the defective construction of the Hutchisson building which was weakened a year or so ago by the addition of two stories. The loss will be at least 3150,- OOp, as both the buildings and stock are total loss. The seriousness of the situation is added to by natural gas setting fire to the ruins and the blaze spreading to S. M. Rice & Co.'s building across the alley. No Hopo for Bnrled Victims. At 1:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the firemen were just about holding their own with the flames. The work of tearing away the debris was proceeding rapidly but only one body has been taken out, that of Pritchard, of Buckhannon. It is now positively known that the bodies of Wineher, Horan, Cowl, Birch and Father Parke are still buried in the ruins and if they were not killed by the crash they have surely been suffocated or burned to death. ing in the breast are badly burnea. but a majority of those who were working in the rooms off the gangway were only slightly disfigured t>y the fire and many not at all. Physicians and miners say that the men working in the breast must have been killed by the shock of the explosion, while the others succumbed to the fire damp as they slid down from the rooms to the gangway, then filled with deadly gas. A Miraculous Escape. This gangway is reached by a tunnel 780 feet long, and the distance from the intersection of the gangway to the breast where the explosion took place is about 1,000 feet. The main air-shaft reached the gangway about 100 feet from the tunnel where air la [supplied by water power and which was not affected by the explosion. Kerns, ' the only miner who escaped from any of the rooms, says that he was not stunned or even thrown down by the shock, though Morgan, who was working with him, was killed.^ Kerns' light was not extinguished and he saw no fire. Sorloun But Jfot Fatal Kxploslon. \YILK.I£SBARBE, Pa., April 0.—An explosion of gas occurred atNauticokc in No. 'J slope, operated by the Susquehanna Conl company at noon Tuesday. It was caused by a naked lamp carried by one of the miners. A number of men were at work in the slope at the time, six of whom were badly' burned. The injured are still in the pit and their names could not be obtained at this writing. It is said, however, that none of them are fatally burned. Tlmwed Oat Too Fttnc. : MrDDLKTOWM, Conn., April 9.—Italian workmen engaged in thawing out dynamite Tuesday afternoon caused an explosion of three or four boxes. Carroll Dusanno was blown to atoms, and Marianna Galanta was badly injured, butit is thought he will recover. The explosion did no damage to property. The accident was the result of carelessness.

Deadly Fir* Damp. The explosion occurred shortly before 3 o'clock, when the shift •would have been changed, and the miners were already climbing the steep hill to take the places of the men killed.

Jamaica. CHICAGO, April 9. — The leading dailies of this city comment as follows on the decision of the supreme court justices with reference to the income tax law: Tribune (rop.): The able dissenting opinion of Mr. Justice Field ought to luivo been tho opinion of tho majority of the court. If tho lower court had hold tae whole law unconstitutional, tho supremo court, being evenly divided us !t Is, the adverse decision would have beer, sustained by reason of that decision. Therefore tuoso who pay an income tax tMs year will do so simply because It happened that suit was begnn before a judce who disliked to assume tho responsibility of holding an act of .congress unconstitutional. It scorns to be understood that Mr. Justice Jackson, who took uo part in the consideration of the Income tax question, will resign this year and a successor be appointed. It win be in the power of President Cleveland to select tt man for or against the constitutionality of tho law. If the lutter, then If another suit Is bosun next year the whole law will be declared Invalid. AVhen the senate is called on to coniirm the next justice It will have to decide whether the Income tai law shall be sustained or upset. Inter Ocean (rep.): The effect of the decision Is to leave tho law In force, except as to those provisions npecitlcnlly declared unconstitutional, namely: bonds, state and municipal, and real estate rents, issues and pronts. These exceptions muy bo Rood law, but if so they nroatly streuffthnn the argument against tho law as a whole. In point of fairness, bondholders and landlords arc among those lea>t entitled to exemption. Record dnd.): The result of a 'month's work of the supreme court nnd of several months' labor on tho part of a number of lawyers is—nothing. Nothing but n mutilated tax law. mado so absurdly unjust by the partial decision of the court thnt If it in not speedily declared unconstitutional as a whole groat injustice will bo done before congress has un opportunity to repeal it An Impractical)!** Idniillmu. OMAHA, Neb., April 9.—The World- lierald says in an editorial on the income tax law decision: "The philosophy of ethics, tho spirit of economics, and the doctrine of equality before the law, is here set aside, and the theory that we arc a nation of people, free nnd equal is now pronounced impracticable IJoallsm. Ke who has rent or income or real estate, and he who has coupons of state, county or town bonds to present for redemption In cash on stated days. Is protected from tho tax gatherer by the strong arm of tho nation. The supreme court says tho constitution of the republic demands that the law of tho land shall bu sq construed, and while tho people acflulesce, they would ask where Is the government by the people, of tho people and for all tho people that Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln talked about?" Miittttr or JJricp Kcjrrct. DBS MOJXES, la., April G.—The Leader (dem.) says regarding the income tax decision: "It Is useless to conceal tho fact that the decision greatly cripples tho law. Indeed, it will bo fortunate If it is discovered, vrnon thQ defective portions of tho law are stricken out, that all of It Is not made practically nugatory. This Is a result deeply to be regretted, for If thore ever was a law righteous In purpose and wise in Its design It is the one which has thus been dismembered." A Notorious Blunder. ST. PAUL, Minn., April 9.—The Dispatch makes the following comment in its editorial in regard to the income tax decision: "The manner In -which, the bill was prepared and the carelessness manifested in Its passage makes it one of the most notorious blunders ever committed by a responsible body Hie tho congress of the United States." Fall* to Strike the Drone*. MILWAUKEE, April 9.—The Secbote, the German democratic daily of this city, says of the decision: "The moral effect of the decision will be a damaging ono throughout tho land: for the law, as It aow stands, will strike only tne producers of the country and not tho drones, as was originally Intended." Senator Ulll'i View. WASHDfOiox, April 9.—Senator Hill, who, more than anyone else, antagonized the enactment of the income tax into law when it was before the senate, was an interested spectator and close listener in the courtroom when the opinion was handed down Monday. The senator expressed himself as gratified at the decision as It 'effects two important questions involved in the act, both of which he vigorously pressed in the senate among other objections to the law. He had never had any doubt that the tar imposed by the income tax law, is a direct tax in all its features and, hence, an unconstitutional tax. He continued: "There never -was any good reason for the enactment of the Income tax law. It wai pressed upon congreu by a lot of populist*, so clallBti. cranlcs and disturber! and their vlewi wrre unwisely adopted. It wu class legislation of the worst kind. From a political point of Tlew It was the height of folly to adopt legislation of that character. The law is unjustifiable and undemocratic and I rejoice that It has met at least a portion of Iu death blow; the rest will follow.lu due time." Wlli Can«« Itrffret- Liscout, Xeb., April 9.—The State Journal says ot the income tax decision: The bloated bondholder was the chap the populists were shooting at when they voted for the bill and it will cause poignant regret to know that he is about the only rich man who was missed. Mr. B««<i If Not Snrprlw-d. PoKTLAJS), Me., April 9.— Ex-Speaker of the House of Representatives Thomas B. Eeed said to a representative of the Associated Press, when asked his opinion of the decision concerning the income tax: ' 'The fall decision .has not reached un. bnt It seems, so far as It na* gone, to be what might dlb court. Tnatlnctoun was eveniy amaecr on the result shows on what thJn Ice the demo- ' crats were willing to tread to attack the tar- - iff." '-.T Further Attack on Incomv Tax. WASHINGTON-, April 9.—Attacks will be made both on those portions that. were sustained by a lie vote and on some fresh points, not passed upon ia the particular cases decided Monday. Attorney J. M.
