Personally He \Vould Vrefur tn Remain in Private L,lfo, Bi\t Ills Own Comfort Will He Snfcriftcoil for the Good pf the Party. MILWAUKEE, March 14.—The Daily Journal publishes a letter from Grover Cleveland which removes all doubt that he will be a candidate before the Chicago convention. Mr.Cleveland writes, in response to a letter from General Edward S. Bragg, of Wisconsin, author of the famous phrase "We love him, for the enemies he haa made." : Mr. Bragg, in his letter, asks of Mr. Cleveland that he remove the doubt under which the party is laboring: because of the oft-repeated rumors that he would decline the nomination for the presidency, and give some expression as to whether he would or would not accept. In the course of his letter to General Bragg Mr. Cleveland says: If, in answering your question, I mighi only consider my personal desires and my individual ease and comfort, my response .1 would be promptly made, and without the least reservation or difficulty. But if you are right iu supposing that the subject is related to a duty I owe to the country and to my party, a condition exists which makes such private and personal considerations entirely irrelevant. I cannot, however, refrain from declaring to you that my experience in the great office of president of the United States has so impressed me with the solemnity of the trust and its Awful responsibility, that 1 cannot bring myself to regard a candidacy for the place as something to be won by personal strife and active self assertion. i)i«fiRt,ov Cnupfld by a Gas Explonion. !1TM» ;Mln« on Fire and Probably Two HuiidtWl Hav« Verlshed — Many tlie Victims.

The government is receiving bulletins of the progress of the work at the shaft and has sent a representative to the spot to ascertain the facts for use in investigation of the cause of the accident and in placing the responsibility for it. I The Mine Flooelina:. The plifce at which the explosion occurred is in the second gallery, 500 yards below the surface, and work at this depth is difficult and dangerous. Volunteers have been let down three times in a cage. When half way down on the first trip the caving of thejshaft- frightened them and they returned. Five of the ten men refused to go down again as the mine was flooding rapidly, they said, and the loosened sides of the shaft threatened to fall in and bury them. The others made the second trip and reached the mouth of the second gallery. They foand a few men who were nearest "the shaft when the first explosion occurred. These miners had run for their lives but had been caught at the entrance by falling timbers. All had bioken bones, and three were so firmly lodged in the wreck that the rescuing party dared not wait to extricate them: Five of the wounded were brought up on the second trip and two others and five dead •were brought up on the third trip.

Hundreds of men and women from near by villages have gathered near the mouth of the pit and are camping around bonfires watching the progress of the work of rescue. Families and relatives of the 200 or more men still entombed have made their homes in the fieldF for the iiight and are cooking their ratals over open air fires so as to get the earliest news from those imprisoned by the shattered shaft. Two Hundred Still Entombed. The rescued men say that twenty-five of the miners still imprisoned are women. There are about 200 in all still to be accounted for. It is thought that those nearest the first cave-in in the gallery may be rescued alive. Those furthest from the entrance of the gallery have probably been suffocated before tliis and if not will die before they can be reached. The dead will number at least 100,ana probably 150.
