REPORT 

OF THE 



DEPARTMENT OF MINES 



INTRODUCTION 



The year 1011 was an unusually active one in the coal trade. In 
sjtite of the depression and uncertainty that surrounded many other 
lines of business it is evident from llie <>ieal tonnaji,e of the year that 
no matter how <iuiet or inactive otlier lines of husiness may be, there 
is nevertheless a great demand for fuel. 

The anthracite tonuai»'e for (he year was llic liea\iest in Die history 
of the industry, amount inu to !)0,H17,17(i net Ions. This exceeds by 
about 4,()()(),(KM) tons the jiri^'at production of 1!)(IT. The bituminous 
lonnaye amounted to 142,lS!),:5iM) net tons. The, anthracite tonnage 
was not only projiort ionately greater than the bituminous, but the 
coal was marketed A\ith a good protit. This industry is one of the 
most stable and successful in the country. 

Generally the bituminous trade has l>een denuiralized and discourag- 
ing, owing to faulty merchandizing, that is, the jtroduction is unre- 
stricted and the great amount of coal on the market naturally keeps 
line prices at a low level. It is high time that the bitmninous pro- 
ducers effect some regulation of their trade that will bring them more 
money for their coal ; but how to do this is a problem. The business 
interests of the country are now so hedged about by restrictive laws 
regarding the making of })rice agreements that relief by this method 
is highly improbable. There is a generally expressed opinion among 
those interested in bituminous coal mining that legislation must be 
secured that will enable the producers to exercise a better control .of 
the industry, undei- Federal su]tervision if need be. Such control 
seems essential too if real conserxation, that is, maximum recovery 
with minimum waste, is to be accomplished. 

There were no labor difficulties of consequence to interfere Avith 
the production in Pennsylvania and the supply therefore has been 
abundant throughout the year, excei»t in the special sizes of anthra- 
cite. 

The agreements in both regions expire Aj)ril 1, ]{)12, and ])ending the 
adjustment of differences between the miners and o])erators au<l the 
adoption of new agreements the usual unsettled conditions will no 
doul)t ])revail. 

.Mining men generally are hojKf'ul that a sti-ike luay be averted; 
this is ])ai-1icularly true in the anthracite i-egiou. A strike not only

interrupts the course of trade and causes demoralization, but it en- 
<;enders a feeling- of bitterness and causes a natural estrangement 
between Ihe operalor and the miner tliat are hard to overcome and 
may take moniiis to obliterate. 

F<>rtunati'l.v it is probable that nothing more than a suspension 
will take place while the ditierences that exist are being settled. 
This is the sane and sensible arrangement now resorted to pending 
the settlement of differences and is frequently nothing more than a 
vacation i)eriod during which time amicable relations may be pre- 
served between the ojterator and the miner. 

A strike its a brcak-olV detinitely of all negotiations, while a suspen- 
sion is a period in which Ihe negotiators can keep in touch and 
arrange for a settlement. J>oth a strike and a suspension niiean a 
cessation of work, but the former may be attended with feelings of 
active animosity and turbulence of action, while the latter is a do- 
nothing i)eri()d during which the opposing forces may retain the most 
friendly relations. 

A suspension of a few weeks would not be unwelcome to most of 
the operators. In the anthracite region the oi)erators by reason of 
their control of the industry will no doubt readily adjust matters, 
but it will be more difficult for the bituminous operators not only 
because of the lack of cohesion in their ranks, but because both 
union and non-union districts contribute to the output. While 
some ai»i»rehcnsion may be felt regarding the outcome in the bitu- 
minous i-egion it is viM-y ]>i-obablc that a cessation of work for a few 
w»K'ks will be ;ill that will mark the changes from the old to the new 
agreements. 

The consumplion of coal in various ways is constantly increasing. 
There is a great demand for its use in gas making, the production of 
electricity, railntnd fuel and domestic consumption. It is probable 
from the indicaticms at the close of the year that 1912 will be one 
of the greatest years as far as production is concerned. At least 
the outlook for tlie first six months is unusually good and it is hoped 
that the jiolitical excitement of the year will not affect the latter 
part. 

Probably the American coal trade will be benefited by the opening 
of the Panama canal. It has been suggested that the opening of the 
canal may render feasible the establishment of a great American 
Station for sui)plying coal from the mines of the United States to the 
vessels of the world. An estimate prepared by the Bureau of Statis- 
tics, Department of Commerce and Labor, of tlie coal consum{)<ion on 
Ihe ocejins of Ihe world shows the amount to be approximately 
7r),0()(),()(M) tons a year. valu<'d at over .'ip250,0l)0,t)0(). An impetus may 
llius be given to export trade llial will mean a great deal to 1he 
Amei'ican shipju'r. Coal expoi-ts have shown a steady and gratifying 
increase during the last ten or twelve years and the amount now sent 
abroud is about throe times as great as in 1900.

INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF MINE INSPECTORS 

The policy of the Department of Mines has always been to place 
every possible safeguard around the vast army of miners that labor 
in the great coal fields of Pennsylvania. This large body of workers, 
numbering more than :5r)0,000 and sui)porting directly at least 1,000,000 
persons and indirectly su}>i)()rting and influencing a far greatw 
numlier. are engaged in work characterized by peculiar dangers and 
discomforts. To alleviate this condition as much as possible, the 
State has very wisely and considerately from time to time enacted 
legislation designed to promote the welfare of the miners in regard 
to their safety and comfort. 

It is the i)rovince of this Department to enforce these laws, and in 
order that they may yield the greatest efficiency and do the most 
good the Department has deemed it wise to increase gradually 
the nnml)er of ^line Inspectors. This policy has resulted in the in- 
crease of Inspectors in the Bituminous region from 15 in 1903 to 25

Tlic result of tlii.s ;i<lion of the Department lias been to give mndi 
iiioie careful suj»ei'vision to the min-es and in that way make ])ossil)le 
safer and more healthful c(tnditions for the mine workers. 



WOUK OF TilH MIXIO IXS'PECTOKS 

Tlie work of tlio Inspectors has been very satisfactory during the 
year. They have made every effort to secure strict comi»liance with 
the mining laws, and the result has been such as to commend their 
work to the Chief of the Department of Mines. 

During the year they site.nt .'..llL'i days insi)ecting mines; 132i days 
inspecting machimry and ]>lants. tHS days investigating accidents; 
11S4 days attending in([uests; 1,141 days at ottice work, 37 days 
inspecting maps and plans; :»4S.} days in consultation on mining 
mattei-s ; 1 day in consultation on legal matters; to.S days traveling on 
duty; 3o3 days on sick list; 110 days legal holidays; 59 days attend- 
ing court; 37| days at mine fires; 227^ days on Mine Foremen's 
lOxami.ning Hoards; U) days attending Mining Congress; 31 days 
ill tending funerals; 12 days on account of deatlis in families; 4 days 
sickness in families; !)S days on vacation; 178 days on jtrivate busi- 
ness; a total of (J, 702 days, or about 31IJ days a year for each Inspector. 



ANTHEAClTi: LAW KEN'ISTON 

An act was ]>assed by the liegislature and a|)proveid June 14. l!)ll, 
creating a Commission to revise and codify the })resent Anthracite 
Laws of tlie State. 

Tile act ])rovides that tlire.' of its mcmbei-s shall be selected from 
the o|»eiators, manageis ami superintendents of the Anthracite region, 
lliree from among the mine workers of the region, one shall be a meiii- 
lier of the Senate, one a member of the House of Representatives and 
one a i>ei-son versed in the aiM of mining. (Jovernor John K. Tener 
appoinle<l on the Commission the following ])ersons: INIessrs. W. I\. 
IJeinhardl, SImuKtkin, Operator; W. (J. Robertson, Scranton, Oper- 
ator; W. 1). Owens, West IMttst<in, Operator: Martin A. Nash, (ile.n 
Ciirlioii, .Mine Worker; II. C. .Morgan, Scranton, Mine Worker; Teler 
J. O'DoMiiell, ^^'ilkes I'.ari-e, .Mine Woi-ker; Sterling K. (\itlin, Wilkes 
P.arre, State Senator; I'-dwin I'', -bnies, Harford, Member of the House 
of I{ei)resentalives; James E. Koderick, Ilazleton, Chief of the Depai-t- 
ineiil of Mines, 

Till' act provides that the Commission shall hold its meetings in 
ilie ciiy of Wilkes Itarre where all ])erso.ns who are interested in 
llie revision and coditication of the laws may ajtpear and give- expres- 
sion to their views. The Coiuiuissi<»n is authorized to call into 
consultation any persoti who in its opinion may be able to give iu- 
forniiiliou that will assist in the work of revision, 



No. 24. DEPARTMENT OF MINES 7 

The (.'uiuiiiissioii met 1o lake up Hie work imposed up<m il, bill in 
a short time found that very little progress conld be made by so 
largo a body and it was decided 1o entrust the pyeparaiion of the 
l)reliminary work to a sub-committee of three. The Chairman of the 
Commission, Senator Catlin, named James E. Roderick, W. D. Owens 
and 1*. J. O'Donnell to act as members of the sub-committee. Hon. 
W. W. Hall, of riitst<m, was elected Secretary for both the Com- 
mission and the sub-connnittee. The work is now progressing rapidly 
and it is expected that the Commission will be ready to submit the 
new code to the Legislature in 191?., as required by the Act creating it. 
No doubt many cliangcs will be made in the laws governing this great 
industry, as Chief Roderick has for many years advocated new 
leuislation to meet tlu; demands of the new conditions. 



A statt: coal mini-: 

In lliis connection it is interesting to observe thai an ex|)('iimeiit 
in the operation of a coal mine on State land and under State 
control is being tried in Colorado. A representative of the State 
has been granted a lease on coal land, and the '"State mine" will bo 
operated under contract, subject to certain restrictions. Any at- 
tempt to sell out to a trust or extort unreasonable returns from the 
people will result in forfeiture of the lease. 

The mine is located near Como. The contract with the operator 
stipulates that "the coal mined must be sold at a profit not to ex- 
ceed fifty cents per ton, and that no combination may be entered into 
to keep up the price of coal. The operator's books must be open to 
inspection by the State Laud Board to make sure that the operator 
lives up to the letter of his contract." 

This is the first attempt at Slate control of coal-mine o])eration 
and price regulation in the Lnited States, and, in consideration of llie 
conti-oversy regarding governmental leasing of coal lands and o])(Ma- 
tion of coal mines, the outc(»me of the experiment will be watched 
with interest. 



EDUCATION OF MINERS 

It is a recognized fact Hiat one of the greatest elements of physical 
danger to the industrial workers of the United States is to be found 
in the inability of tlie many workers from Continental lOurope lo 
undei-staml the lOnglish language. The Department of .Mijies has jip- 
preciated ihe gravity of this condili(tn, ]>articulai-ly as |»eitaining 
to Ihe workers in the coal minc-s, and has for the past ten or twelve 
years made an effort to have the Miners' Examining Hoards live up to 
the provisions of the law in the issuance of certificates to miners. 
The Act of 1807, amendatory of the Act of 1889, reiiuires that each 
miner before receiving a certificate of iiualification sliall have answered 



8 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE Off. Doc. 

twelve questions intelligently in the English language. We regret to 
admit the laihire of the etfort on the part of the Department; the 
Examining Boards have continued in their illegal and nefarious 
practice of giving out certificates indiscriminately, and today the 
mines are filled with workers who cannot speak and, in many cases, 
cannot even understand Ihe English language. 

It is gratifying to know (hat other industries arc awakening to 
this menace to the safety of employes and that efforts are being made 
to improve the conditions. Some of the manufacturers in New Eng- 
land have taken up this matter recently and are making the study 
of English compulsory on the part of their employes. Notices were 
l)osted at the mills to the effect that six months' time would be allowed 
for the acquisition of this knowledge. The task, as may be imagined, 
was not an easy one. 

The Iron Age in speaking of this movement says: 

"The campaign had to be carrii^d beyond the works. The clergy 
of the city, whose congregations include the men and women in ques- 
tion, were called into the conference. The services of numy churcJies 
are conducted in foreign tongues, so that their parishioners receive 
no education in English from this source. Most of the clergy have 
seen the wisdom of the effort and are assisting so far as is within 
their power. Night schools were established in the works, stenog- 
raphers acting as instructors. One of the plants employs a phy- 
sician Avho is in frequent contact with every employe. The test of 
a knowledge of English is largely through him, in the ability of 
euii)loyes to understand his words and to answer him intelligently." 

The results thus far have been eminently satisfactory and if the 
system could be extended and enforced wherever foreign w^orkers 
are employed in large numbers, it would undoubtedly tend to the 
safety of the employes. 

It is unfortunate that many of the foreigners who come to this 
country, particularly to the mining region, have no intention of 
remaining. Their stay is prolonged only long enough to amass 
a considerable sum of money and then they depart to theii- uativ(! 
homes where they can live among their own people under conditions 
more congenial to them. Having the feeling that they are not to 
make this coimtry a permanent residence, they take no interest in our 
institutions or our civic life and make no ell'ort to learn the language. 
It is to be hoped that this com]»uls()ry method will become general. If 
it could be applied to the mine ^^(»rk('rs of the country there would be 
a material lessening of the dangers ]>ertaining to mining and, no 
doubt, a very desirable im])rovement in the condilions generally that 
surround the mining occui)ation. 

The American mine operator and the English-s])eaking miners 
apj)reciate this need of education on the ])art of their foi-eign co- 
laboj-ers. The danger to be ajiprehended from workers who :irc 
not only unskilful and inex]ieri(Miced. but ignorant of the I'nglish 
language and therefore inca])able of understanding the rules and 
instructions, can scarcely be overestimated. 

During recent yeai-s this danger has inci-eased with the great in- 
crease in the number of foreign workers, and the realization of the 
menace these men are (o themselves and their fellow-workmen has

In this connection we refer to the work of the Mining Institute 
iu the Anthracite region, the purpose of which is to extend to the 
mine workers opi)ortuniiy for the acquiring of knowledge on various 
subjects in addition to the English language. 

The subjects taught in the ^Mining Scliool are as follows: Mine Law, 
]Mine Gases, \'en(ilation, Air Compression, Haulage, Diainage, Mine 
^Matheuuitics, Mine Surveying, Mechanics, Timbering, Pum]>ing, lOlec- 
tricity and Magnetism, Track Work, I'reparation of Anthracite. 

The Institute has at present 1,562 members and the Mining School 
proper 07 students. The Institute held six meetings during the year, 
with an average attendance of 265 men. 

In ccmuection with the meetings a question box is placed at (he 
door and the men who are too timid to ask qu(\stions in person ai-(* 
led (o drop many (lueslions into the box and these (iues(ions are la(er 
taken up by the Board of Directors and answered by some compe- 
tent person. The utnu)st freedom of speech and opinion is allowed 
in connection with the public meetings of the Institute. The member- 
ship includes all classes of the mining fraternity from the door boys 
to the presidents of some of the companies. The sui>erintendents and 
mine foremen make special effort to develop intelligent interesl on tlie 
part of men and boys in their em{>loy. 

The Institute is aftlliatod with the Voung Mrn's CJirislian .Vssocia- 
liou and works in peil'ect harmony with that Inslitution. 



ECOXO.MV AND MINK AC(^I DENTS 

A great deal has l»een said in recent years regarding the relation 
(jf ecimomy to nnne acciden(s. Some of the more radical thinkers 
advance the theory that if (he mine ojterators were compelled to pay 
for the destruction of human life, say, from one thousand to five 
thousand dollars for each fatal accident, the amount, of course, 
to be determined by the degree of neglect charged against the superin- 
tendent, foreman, assistant foreman or fire boss, as the case may be, 
there would be much greater efforts made to reduce the fa(alities. 
Such a method, it is asserted, would compel or at least induce 
managers and general superintendents to insist upon more care 
and jirecaution on the part of all jiersons connected with the opera- 
tion of the mines, and as far as possible all unnecessary risks of 
mining and transportation would be eliminated. 

1 do not fully agree with this view. In my opinion tin; pei-son 
direcdy res])onsible for an accident (if not the victim) should be 
held strictly to account and ]iunished for his neglect or carehwsness. 
it is ex(remely diliicult (o fix (he ptmishment for such acts of neglect 
or carelessness, but as a general rule it would be nothing more than 
just that the miner who neglects to secure the working place over 



10 ANNUAL REPORT OP THE Off. Doc 

wliicli ho has cliarj^e should, if his neglect i-esults in the loss of life, 
\h-: punished l»y iuiiiiisouuieul for al least live days. A siniilar 
l»unishiueut should be nielC'd out to mine forenu'U, assistant mine 
foremen and tire bosses Avho.se carelessness and negligence result in 
fatalities. 

A superintendent whose neglect of duty results in fatalities to 
those undei- his charge, directly or indirectly, should sutfer a longer 
tei-m of imjtrisonment, say, ten days. 

While, as stated before, 1 do not believe in imposing [)enalties 
upon the oj)erators for the accidents that nuiy occur in the mines 
through the neglect of their ollicials, I am very decided in my opinion 
that in all cases of accident the victim, if seriously injured, should 
be taken care of by the operator until he recovers, or in case of 
death those dependent upon him should be compensated as liberally 
as jiossibk'. 

I am also oC the oitinion that in alleviating the sorrow and con- 
Iributing to the jiersoual needs of those wh<» are left dejiendcnt, there 
should bL' no distinction on account of the manner in which the bread 
^\ inner was removed, whether by his own rash act or the act of some 
<nio else. Some day in the not far distant future the rules as ap- 
jdied by the various governments to the men in their armies anc* 
navies will be made ai)plical)le to the men in the mines and in other 
dangerous industrial pursuits. It will then be not a (juestion as 
to how the man was killed or injured, but the fact that he was killed 
will 1)8 all that is necessary to bring to his dependents a compensa- 
tion that will place them beyond want. 

Coal companies have freiiuently been criticised for what has been 
designated as ijiordinate greed in their elforts to increase their ton- 
nag** at the expense of the safety of the emjdoyes. This opinion is 
ei-roneous, for while all managers and superintendents make evei-y ef- 
fort to in<r(ase the pi-oduction of coal lliey, as a rule, bear in mind 
while doing so the welfai-e ami safety of the employes. In fact nuuiy 
of the largest comi»anies have adopted as their motto, "Safety First," 
and they hold their superintendents, foremen and fire bosses avIio hav(» 
charge of ili<» mines to dose account for anv loss of life. 



('().mim:xsati()X foii .mini*: a(hmi)i:.\ts 

A (lucslion lliat lias always bee-n close to the Dejiart mcnl of .Mines 
is the ([ueslion of rendering financial assistance to mine woi-kevs 
and those dependent upon them in case of death. '!Mie Chief of the 
Department has for yeai-s. e\('r since he wroii' his lirst report as 
inspectoi- in ISSI, urg;Ml the adoption (»f some method of la\ali<»n or

allect.d by ac<'idents, give prop(^r su|)porl to those who are remiei-cd 
incajKiblc of coni inning work ami also piovide for the widows and 
children (»f those who are killed. 

It is a gratifying fact that the welfare of injured mine workei-s and 
the families who nniy be left destitute by the death of husbands and 
fathers is receiving more attention now than ever before. This

and also by Home of the Slale (Joveiiinieiils, and its scoj)e lias been 
greatly enlarged by ineluding workers in all industries. In Penn- 
sylvania, under authority b('sfo^\•ed by the last session of the Leg- 
islature, (Governor Tener souietiuie ago appointed what is termed 
An Industrial Accidents Couniiission. The ('oiiiiuission consists 
of the following nieuibers: David A. IvtM'd. IMttsbnrgh, Chairman; 
J. B. Colahan, Jr., I'hiladelpliia ; John J. Crushing, MoUesHen ; 
Francis Feelian, IMttsbnrgh ; George C, lletzel, Che><ter; Morris 
AVilliams, lMiiladel]>hia ; Francis H. Bohlen, Philadelphia, Secre- 
tary. This Commission has given a great deal of attention to the 
subject and has held nuuierous meetings in various ])arts of the 
State in order that they might arrive as nearly as ]»ossible at the 
actual conditions. Testimony was taken froui ex})erts and woi-kuien 
in industrial })ursuits, and ihe Commission has now ]»iepared for 
]>i'est'ntati<m to the (lovernor a tentative draft, the main point of which 
is the collection of dauiages for injury or death by legal ]trocedui-e, 
and })resent.s what is described as an elective schedule of compensa- 
tion, under which the employer ])ays automatically to the employe if 
injured, or to his heirs if he is killed, the amount set forth in the 
schedule. Nothing can interfere with the operation of the schedule 
if the employe elects to work under it at the time he accepts employ- 
ment, and it is so arranged that the compensation paid is di\dded 
into weekly payments on the plan of weekly wages, rather than paid in 
a lump sum. 

This proi)osed Act will, of course, make great changes in the 
])resent ]*ennsylvania statutes dealing with compensation to work- 
men for industrial accidents. One striking departure from the ])re- 
sent law is that '*the right to compensation shall not be defeated ujxfn 
the ground that the injury was caused in any degree by the negligeju-e 
of a fellow-employe oi- that the injured or deceased employe assumed 
tile risks inherent or incidental to or arising out of his employment 
uv arising from the failure of the emj)loyer to ])rovide and maintain 
safe i»remises or suitable appliances or competent employes, which 
said grounds of defence are hereby abolished."" 

If this bill should l)e eimcted at the next legislature, it will become 
effective Julv 1, and will be kn()\\n as the "A\'orkmen's Compensation 
Law of ]!)i:!." 

Ju the various articles that have appeared from lime to time in the 
annual report of this Department on Ihe subje<t of com]jensation, 
the opinion has been expressed that in case of a total disability the 
employe should receive conijx'usalion as long as he lives, widows 
should receive com] ensalion as long as they live or until they remarj-y, 
an<l children should be jirovided for until they arrive at the employ- 
ment age. 



FLECTION OF MIXF [NSPECTORS 

It has always been the opinion of the Chief of llip Department of 
Mines that ihv- election of mine inspectors by the people was an un- 
wise, dangerous and ]»erui(ious |)ractice, and it is gratifying to have 
Ihis opini(m corroborated by two eminent authorities on mining ques- 
tions — the Coal Age and Klines and Minerals. 



12 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE Off. Doc. 

lu a coiiipri'lK'Hsivt' and well Avrillcii arlielc the I'ormei- journal, 
after reviewing at length llie various legislative acts passed for the 
regulation of the Anthracite Industrv and presenting interesting 
details to show their beneficent etiect in reducing fatalities, takes up 
the matter of the election of mine inspectors and discusses it with an 
intelligence and vigor that should impress any reader with the grave 
defects inherent in this method. The latter journal confines its 
remarks entirely to the question of the election of the inspectors and 
portrays the evils of the system in unanswerable logic. AVe (piote 
as follows (from Coal Age): 

THE ANTHRACITE MINE INSPECTORS' ELECTION LAW, lOOt 

There is another feature of the anthracite law, enacted in 1903, that 
lias operated quietly to undermine and destroy, during the past de- 
cade, all that the law had previously accomplished. This enactment 
is the law requiring the election of the anthracite mine inspectors 
by popular vote of tlie people. The law has well been described as 
jiernicious, seductive and destructive, as o]>posed to all that is whole- 
some, ingenuous and ccmstructive. In his annual report for the 
year lOUo, James E. liodeiick, Chief of the Department of Mines, in 
rennsylvania, refers to this law as the work of 'a few interested per- 
sons' who su< ceeded in inducing the anthracite miners, assembler! in 
convention, to pass a resolution calling upon the legislature to amend 
the mining law so as to provide for the election of the anlhraiite 
mine inspectors by the people. 

The reason given for this demand was that it would place in the 
liands of the voters in each district, the choice of the inspector for 
that district and remove all cause of complaint growing out of the 
ajipointment of an inspector who might prove objectionable to the 
miners of the district. The reasoning was seductive; it Avas seem- 
ingly a just and fair proposition to allow the people to choose, by 
direct vote, their o^^^l inspector. Thinking men, however, saw the in- 
evitable result of granting this demand voiced by a few men whose 
judgment was temporarily blinded by the rehearsal of some sup])osed 
wrinigs ascribed to an alleged objectionable insp'ector. The se(iuel 
has ])rove(l the unwisdom of the law, and to-day the demand among in- 
t<'lligent j)eo])le for its i-epeal is even more urgent than that for its 
passage ten years ago. 

EFFECT OF THE LAW ON MINE INSPECTORS 

The mine-insjiection service of the state is a thankless service. The 
men charged with its duties are oflftcers of the law, whose business 
it is to enforce its provisions. To transgressors and violators of 
law. ilies(! men are often 'objectionable.' To j)lace the choi(e of the 
inspector in the control of the voters of a district where the votes are 
pj-actically dictated by a few men who desire to be unmolested and 
lo make their own inter]»retati(»n of the laws to suit their individual 
caNcs, would be to surrejider Hie law to its violators. 

^^'hat is law, when the officer charged with its execution is heljt- 
less in the hands of would-be violators of law? What is mine inspec- 
tion when the inspector must close his eyes as he goes through the 



No. 24. DEPARTMENT OF MINES 13 

iiiiiios and seal his luoiitli when he comes (o the surlace? iiui, this 
is the logical result and what must be expected under the anthracite 
mine inspectors' election law. The inspector becomes the servant 
of the otKicials o! the mines lie inspects, instead of the servant of the 
people and an officer of the law. 

On the ins])ector's side, the etfect of this law is no less baneful. His 
conscience is stultified, his dignity degraded and his usefulness to the 
state forfeited. In some instances tlie inspector, in the anthracite 
region, has ])roved a mere figure head. Tt is true he has collected 
some valuable statistics of mining and drawn his salary. In other 
instances he has even made suggestions, some of which may have been 
carried out. Few indeed are the cases where there has been any 
serious contention on the ins|)eclor's i)art, who has genei'ally refrained 
from making suggestions that would be at variance with the company's 
wishes. 

EFFECT OF THE LAW ON EXAMINING BOARDS 

One of the most harmful effects of the mine inspectors' election law 
is the influence exerted hy the other members of the examining board 
for mine foremen to force the inspector into line, in reference to the 
desired recommendation of a candidate whose examination before the 
board has shown him to be wholly incompetent to hold the i)osiiion of 
mine foreman, but whose political influence, backed by the expressed 
wishes of his comi)any, demands recognition by the board. The 
mine iusijector is an ex-officio member of the board of examiners for 
mine foremen, the other meml)ers of the board being two miners and 
one mine operator, superintendent or owner. The inspector is gen- 
erally in a position better qualified to judge of the competency and 
titness of a candidate to fill the position of mine foreman than any 
of the other members of the board. In most cases, however, he is 
comi)elled to set a!side his own convictions and join with the rest in 
recommending the candidate and signing his certificate of competency. 
The refusal to do this would probably jeopardize his chances in the 
next election, and no one realizes this better than the inspector him- 
self. 

EFFECT OF THE LAW ON MINERS 

Instead of this law working to the advantage of miners, as they 
had been led to believe it Mould, by placing in the hands of each 
miner a vote for the man of his choice, it has operated much to their 
disadvantage. In many instances the miner's vote is not his own but 
is cast in compliance wiih the dictation of bosstvs, which limits his 
choice of insjtector to their selection of the man for whom he must 
vote. 

The working of the law with respect to examining boards for 
mi.ne foremen has proved a menace to the safety of mines, by the 
certificatiim of many incompetent men for that i)Osi(ion, by reason 
of which the lives of mineis have been endangered. 

The same law has also ])roved a hindrjuice to many amliilious, 
deserving miners, who have studied to fit themselves for foremen and 
assistant foremen. Their knowledge of theoretical and i)raclica] 
mining will, in many cases, surpass that of the man who secures his

REPEAL THE .ML\E INSPECTORS' ELECTION LAW 

TluMo is i)i()l>al)Iy no law on (lie statute books ol' I'ennsylvania, the 
repeal of wliicli is nioi;'. urgently demanded hy intelligent mining- 
urn of all elasses, from the miner who advocaled tlie law, to the 
mine insiteitor who has most keenly felt its liuiden. Let the miners, 
who are responsible for the enaeiment of this election law, do their 
l>art lo wi]; ' it off the books, recognizing what is a fact, that it is a 
disgrace lo honest mining, the work of grafters and wire jtullers, and 
subseivcs no good ]»ur])ose bur rather is a nu'uace lo life and properly 
and a hindrance to ihe uieriLd advancement of ambitious and <-oin- 
l»(\ieut uiiners.* * * 

The appointmeni of b(»ih ihe examining boards and the mine in- 
sp(M!ors should be. confessedly, as far removed from polilics and ihe 
influence of wire jjullers as it is^ possible to have them. 

Tlia work of mine inspection is a most important work. 1 1 is and 
should be a subsidiary ])art of the stats government and subject to 
ils control, as far as its work is concerned.. Owing, however, to the 
peculiar relations that Ihe inspector must bear to the mine operator 
.111(1 miner, as custodian of the mine law, his position should only be, 
assailable through Ihe couris, by process of law. 

There are strong reasons why the appointment of mine inspeclois 
should l>e for a l()ng period of years, say, 20 or oO years, or good be- 
Iia\ior with a time limit. 

Oii:' of the most important of these reasons is the fact lha( a g(to(l 
iiisjv (lor becomes more I'lticiiMit and valuable each f-ear. His growing 
familiarity with the miners and distiict in his charge and his know- 
ledge of local conditions and re(]uirements make his service more! 
effective each succeeding year. He knows each mine as a mother 
knows her child, lie understands belter Ihs' whims and habits of both 
operators aJid men as lime iiu])roves his ac(iuaintauce. A short 
lerm of oHice and Ihe friMpienl change of insi)ectors is both trouble- 
some and cosily. Owing lo the lack of a full appreciation of con- 
dil ions, and, in jiarl. to the desire of a new man to do something worth 
while and to make his presence felt, changes in the mine work or 
e<|ui[nii('nt ar<» oft(Mi uiged that a longer ac(piainlance with the mine 
W(tuld show unnecessary and i)erliaits even harmful. The m^ed of 
longer term api-ointmeiits is nioi-e ui'gent in mine-inspection work 
ihan in any other calling, owing to the expense and danger incurrod 
by ill advised changes in methods or ecinipment in and about mines. 

.\ ( areful consideration of these and other facts, in the same connec- 
tion, should im|iress any thinking man with the iiiadvisability of \]\o 
mine ins]»eclors' election law." 

-Mines and .Minerals stigmatises Ihe election of ins|»ectors as llui 
worst feature of Ihe mining law. We (piote as follows: 

"Kven when, as in the present Anthracite Mine Law of Pennsylvania 
the nominees for Ihe oHice must be men who have passed a satis- 
factory examination, the plan is a vicious one. 



No. 24. DEPARTMENT OF MINES 15 

It lowers (lie slniidni-d ol' the oClice and lends lo make llie inennd)enl, 
even if teelinically coniiH'lenl, liiickk' lo tliei ()])iiiions of ]»()liticians, 
saloon keepers, and olliers whose inlluence shonid have absolntely 
no weight in liis selection. It deters jnany men of superior qualifica- 
tions from seeking the oHice, because as political candidates they 
must contribute lieavily to their party's campaign fund, and then 
run the risk of being defeated, even if their (piaiifications are superior 
lo those of their opj)on8nts. JJesides, the i)Ositi<m is (me wliosa dulies 
retpiire all the time of the incumbent of the oitice, and if faithful to 
his duty he has no time to devote to campaigning from the time he 
registers as a candidate at the primaries, or earlier, till after Ihe 
legular election. Jf he enforces the law and holds certain mine offi- 
cials resinmsible for violations, he incurs their enmity and loses their 
vores-a.nd the votes of all they can in any way influence. If he com- 
])els working miners to observe the law, and prosecutes tlagi-ant 
violations, he is accused of i)ersecuting the workingmen. and that 
charge is used with telling effect against him at the polls. Kvery iuti-I- 
ligent miiiLM- knows that the mine laws are freipiently violated by 
mine woi'kei-s, who not only recklessly endanger their owai lives, but 
those of their fellow workers as well. Every intelligent miner also 
knows that there are violations of the law by some mine foremen and 
fire bosses, and that the overlooking of such violations encourages 
others. If a mine inspector does his full duty regardless of w'hom the 
penalty hits, he has very little chance for i-e-election. 

1 'nfortunately there are many mine workers unable to understand 
English, and in no sense well informed technically, who can be easily 
influenced against the candidacy of an able and conscientious insi)ec- 
tor, and be led to work and vote against the man whose services would 
l)e most valuable to them. Therefore, if he does his full duty, his chances 
of tilling the office for more than one term are comparatively small. 
If, on the other hand, he truckles to both sides, and simply makes a 
show of doing his work, he is a good fellow, and can be reasonaI>ly 
sure of re-election, if he supports his party machine, and makes him- 
self solid with the saloon keepers, bartenders, and others who exert 
an influence in general elections, even if they are absolutely un- 
qualified to pass on the merits of a candidate for State Mine Inspector. 

As far as the farmer vote is concerned, he will get that ])ortion of it 
that behmgs to the party on whose ticket he is a candidate. Thev 
won't assume to vote for a JNIine Inspector on mei-it. Knowing prac- 
tically nothing of the qualifications required, farmers will vote for 
their party's nominee. It is claimed that the United Mine Workers 
favor the election of mine inspectors. This nmy be true as fai' as a 
majority of that organization is concerned, but we do not believe a 
majority of the more intelligent skilled nnners will favor such a policy 
when they seriously consider its evils and the chances it otfers for 
the selection of inspectors who are not com])etent to, or who for sel- 
fish reasons will not, faithfully ])erform their duties. 

The system is a bad one, even whon men aspii-ing foi- the nomina- 
tions have i)assed examinations showing their technical ability. It 
is infinitely worse when no examination or a less rigid examination is 
required. 



1,; ANNUAL REPORT OF THE Off. Doc. 

Tn llic foiejjjoiiij; we lisivc no iiiloiuion (if irllccliiig on the ability 
5Hi(l t'jiillilnlness oj llie present ])ody of Suite Mijie Inspectors for the 
;inllii';ieite regions of I*; nnsylvania. As a whole they are able and 
eonscientions nieii, bnt there have been some for whom this cannot be 
said. 

It is safe to say that of the present body, there isn't one, regardless 
of his parly alliliations, who does not believe the former system of the 
Governor a])pointin!j;- insj)ectors from among those who had ])roved 
their comi)eien(y, is the best way to secure efficiency in every respect. 

There isn't one of the present Anthracite Mine Inspectors who 
would hesitate very long in resigning to accept a mine manager- 
ship at the same salary he is receiving from the State, because such 
a position Av<mld be good for life or good behavior, and would not be 
subject to the chances of an election every four years with its attend- 
ing annoy Jinces and evils. 

^^'hen the former and bettir ])lan of selecting inspectors was in force, 
there were no politics considered. Itepublican governors appointed 
Denujcrats, and (Jovernor Tattison, who was the only Democratic 
(lovernor of Pennsylvania in many years, appointed Kepublicans. The 
(piestion of partisan politics was not considered. Character and 
clliciency were the requirements.. Under the old law every inspector 
who did his duty, and who ke{)t abreast with the increase of knowl- 
edge pertaining to coal mining knew he Avould be reappointed and 
kejit in office as long as he was physically able to jierform its duties. 
Naturally every year of service added to his efliciency. If a corpora- 
1 ion, lecognizing his ability, desire-d to employ him, it had to offer him 
a considerable increase in salary and other substantial inducements 
to get him. The State should have the best. But it cannot kee]) the 
bfst, if the conditions are such as to force men, for their own good, ~ 
to leave the service of the State for the service of private corpora- 
tions." 

With most of tho denunciation in these articles we heartily agree. 
There is no doubt about the benefits that would ac<'rue to the service 
by a return to the system that was in vogue from 1870 to l!)l)t), or the 
system now in vogue; in the bituminous region. It is sincerely to be 
hojed that the code now being prei)ared by the commission a})j)ointed 
)»y (Jovernor Tener, for jiresentation to the legislature in ]l)i:'>, Avill 
embody this necessary refoini. 

The views of the Chief of the Do})artment on this subjeci were 
cxj)ressed in his annual report for IDO') as follows: 

"Duiing late y.ars considerable dissatisfaction Avas manifestpd re- 
garding the insjiectors, es]>ecially in Schuylkill county, and this feel- 
ing was iutensilied against one of them who. from mistaken judg- 
meni as lo his duty, committed an act that, while not a violation ol" 
the law. was rej)iignant to the minei-s. This antagonislic feeling 
against the inspectors was encouraged and kejit alive to such an «>xteut 
by a few interested jiersons, that the miners tinally assembled in con- 
venticm and ])assed resolutions calling upon the Legislature to amend 
the mining law so that the anihraeite inspectors could be elected by 
the ]>eoj>le. They believed that this would do away with all obje<-tion- 
alile inspectors and remove all causes of complaint, and that it would 
also open au avenue for ambitious miners to become inspectors. The 



No. 24. DEPARTMENT OF RUNES 17 

fact is, liowL'vcr, lliat the office of inspector has always been open to 
all miners qualitied to fill it; but in all the years from 1870 to IDOo 
only one miner passed a successfnl examination before an examining 
board in the anthracite region. (The word 'miner' as used here 
means a man actually employed in cutting coal.) The reason for 
this is found in the fact that the operators have always advanced the 
most intelligent miners to be foremen and fire bosses, and many of 
them have bouome superintendents and general managers of large 
corporations. One of them has recently attained the })residency of 
one of the uiost prominent coal companies. It is from the class of 
miners who were foremen or superintendents that the anthracite in- 
spectors, with on3 exception, have generally been selected, after a 
rigid competitive examination before a board composed of three 
miners and two mining engineers. With but one or two exceptions, 
the anthracite inspectors from 1S70 to 1900 have been men of good 
moral character and practically and theoretically proficient. All 
the anthracite laws (1870, 1885 and 1891) have favored the miners 
in the formation of examining boards, as they have always had three- 
fifths fvf the membership of each board. They have therefore been 
able to control the actions of the boards, (and invariably the miners 
on these boards have acted as upright intelligent citizens as they 
are). 

In compliance with the demands of the miners, the Legislature in 
1901 amended Article TI of the Anthracite Law of 1891, providing 
that after a certain date all inspectors should be elected by the- peo- 
]»le under the general election laAV of the State, after first having 
])assed an examination and answered ninety per centum of the ques- 
tions propounded. The election of mine inspectcus by the people is 
unheard of in any other State in the Union, except Kansas, or in any 
other country of the woi-ld. * * * It is a most pernicious practice, as 
it brings the ai)pl.icant for an office created for the preservation of life 
and property into the vortex of political intrigue, and 1 sincerely 
hojie the time will soon come when both the miners and operators will 
demand the repeal of this port of the law. * * * The evil effects of 
the election of inspectors may reach even to the selection of mine 
foremen and assistant mine foremen. The inspector is an ex-officio 
member of each examining board and there is reas(m to fear that in 
numy cases poorly qualified candidates wdio possess some political 
influence may be treated with, lenienc}' not onlj^ discreditable to the 
board, but inimical to the interest of the miners and o[)erators. In- 
com]»eteucy in the office of uii.ne foreman or fire boss is a menace to 
the lives of the miners and the ]»r()i»erty of the operators. I'pon the 
vigilance, care and (^Hiciency of the mine foreman and assistant mine 
foreman depends largely the welfare of the mining interests, and I 
note Avith regret that during the past year certificates of qualification 
have been granted to men regarding whose incompetency there can 
b<' imie doubt." 

In the report of ]!)()7 the (piestion Avas again referred to as follows: 
"Since the above article was written in 1903 the fears entertained 
at that time have been more than realized. The inspectors have al- 
lowed the Examining Boards to pass scores of unfit men to act as

niinarinn lo i)ass only comjjetint jiersons, it is ])robable that (he other 
members would not insist np(m granting certificates to those who 
were not competent. Unfortunately, however, the inspectors are de- 
ferred from exercising their independence and from acting as justly as 
tliey miglit desire in the matter, becaus? of the fear they have llvit the 
other mmibers of the board and the api)licaji(s and their friends 
may at some future time use their inlluence to defeat them for re-elec- 
lion. 

T wish to state here that the clause in the law that ])rovid-^s for the 
clfclion of insi>ectors should be annulled, and thereafter the men 
|iassiiig I he examination for certificates as foremen and fire bosses 
would undoul)ledly be more competent to care for the safety of the 
lives of the nn*.ner8 and of the property of the operators. It may pro- 
perly be mentioned here that, as Chief of the Department of Mines, f 
have no auihoiily to withhold a certificate from any person who is 
rironmiended by an examining board as competent, even though I 
have ample proof in the examination papers that he should not be 
lated as answering correctly more than forty per centum of the (jues- 
lions asked, instead of over ninety as required. 

There is no valid reason why the inspectors of the Anlhrai-ite coun- 
!i(vs of this Commonwealth should not be treated as the liitumiuous 
iusiectoi's are treated, and therefore it is greatly to be desired ihat 
I lie present provision in the anthracite law be repealed and that the 
(lovernor lie emjiowered to appoint one board of examineis for the 
Aniliiaciie couulies to ment once every four years to examine ai)}di- 
eanls for inspectors, who shall be declared qualilied upon answering 
coiriMtly ninety i)er centum or over of the (piestions propounded, and 
I be persons having the highest percentages then to be selected to fill 
ihe positions. \'acancies that may occur thereafter shall be filled 
by Ihe seb'ction of those candidates having the next highesi avi'rages. 
Ill case a vacancy should occui- and Ihere be no person on ihe eligible 
list, Ihe board could meet again and hold a special examination. 

The Anthracite inspectors, smarting under the injustice of the ])res

indiscriminate condemnation of the manajjement, the State inspectors 
and tlie Department of .Mines, naturally lead those unfamiliar with 
llie facts to the conclusion lliat nowhare hut in the United Slates of 
America could sucli calastrojihes occur. However, they do occur, even 
in Great Urilain, where mining i.^ an old art and one most closely 
supervised, as will he seen by the following- (piotalion from an Eng- 
lish paper: 

''At about noon on December 14, 1!J11, a lire broke out at the Old 
Hednesford pit, live men losing tlieir lives. At the time of the out- 
bi-eak being discovered, about 100 men were in tlie pit. and so ra])idly 
did the tire si)read that they had to run to a place of safety. Willi 
five exceptions all the men I'eached the pit shaft and w^ere (juickly 
drawn up to the surface. The fire originated in a lamp house about 20 
or '.\0 y^u'ds from tlie bottom of the downcast sliaft, many of those wlio 
managed to reach the cage in safety having very narrow escapes. 

At the impiiry the under manager (our assistant mine foreuian ) 
at the pit described the measures adopted in order to rescue (he en- 
tombed men and to extinguish the flames. He said that he gave 
instructions for the doors to be closed, but admitted that the question 
of stopping the fan did not occur to him. 

The mine manager (our mine foreman) said that it had never oc- 
curred to him that the bottom of the downcast pit was the wrong 
place for this shukey house (oil house). The fire, he thought, migiit 
have been caused by a lighted Avick having been thrown down. The 
manager further said, if a team had go,ne in and found the men alive 
it would have been impossible to bring them out, unless some form of 
apparatus was carried by the rescuers to ptit on the rescued, and the 
latter knew how to use it. 

Mr. Morgan, the depnty coroner, in summing up said he was 
afraid it would never be discovered how the fire originated. U 
api)e.ared that the fire started near the shuke}" house, and by reason 
of the fact tliat oil lay on the floor around, it spread rapidly. If (he 
lighted wick had been thrown down, the lire would run along I he 
ground inv<»lving everylhing in its wa}', and in a short space of time 
I he tubs (cars) would be ablaze." 

If the men in this English mine had been Avorking under the same 
conditions as ihe men at the I'ancoast mine, not many of the 100 
em]»loyes would have (scaped, ^^'e find the saiue bad habit ]»racticed 
abroad that we condemn in Ihe American mines, thai is, the habit of 
throwing on the ground or in some other ])lace, tlu- piece of lighted 
wick taken from the lamj) when a new wick is placed in it. The jtiece 
of lighted wick is retained to furnish light \\hile the new wick is being 
adjusted. 

A -further (juotation is taken from an lOiiglisli .loni-nal t(» show- 
that they are just as likely to make mistakes in tlie Iwiglisli mines as 
we ai-e in the minis of this country. 

''At a mine fire at the Jannnage pit, November 25, 1911, when six 
persons lost their lives, the point was raised, '\A'hat about the rescue 



20 AXXUAL REPORT OF TIIR Off. \)ov. 

brigatle?' It was stated that the brijxade went down the pit within 
Iwo and one half hours after being notified, but it was too late to 
rescue the victims. The nianajxers ajireed with the insjtector tliat if 
there had been a rescue bri«;ade among their own men wlio could have 
entered the pit within twenty minutes of the accident probably no 
lives would have been lost." 

This corroborates my 0])inion that no helmet brigade can be of 
finy practical use in rescuing entonil^ed men after an ex]>losion un- 
less they are on the ground at tlie time and are familiar with the 
workings of the mine. A matter of half an hour's time nuiy mean 
life or death to the entombed persons. The helmet brigades should 
be sent in as soon as possible after an explosion; if it is necessary 
to wait an hour or two for a brigade to come from a distance it may 
be too late to rescue the men if any are alive. Again, if the rescue 
corps, say, of five persons enters a mine half an hour after an ex- 
plosion, and finds two or three men alive half a mile aAvay from the 
entrance, what can they do towards rescuing them? They cannot 
carry more than one out at a time; it is doubtful if they can do that. 
It is very evident, therefore, that too much dependence is placed on 
the rescue crew. I have never yet personally known of any one 
being rescued from a mine in this State by a helmet cor])s. 

T have no criticism to make on this method of effecting rescues, 
but the corps to be of real service should be composed of tlie otficials 
of the mine with other young men of the mine that can be drilled for 
the work. The otficials would be familiar with the physical conditions 
of the mine and they would not be at the same disadvantage as 
strangers in finding their way into the various parts. Again, in the 
accident at the Jammage pit,' the evidence brought out the fact that 
th(^ fire boss Avas lost in the explosion and that the books were left 
in a wooden shanty which was blown to bits by the force of the ex- 
I)losi(m and carried to the sump with the water. ' Such a thing as that 
could not have happened in this Commonwealth under our present 
law. 



D.wcKi: v\u)M timi:kimno in case of INriNE FiKi:s 

The min(i tire at (he Pancoast and the mine tire at the 1). & H. 
mine at Plymouth has brought to my attenticm the scores of miles of 
gangways, aii-ways and chutes in the Anthracite mines that are 
closely double timbered and closely lagged and are as dry as punk. 
The danger existing under such conditions is ai)parent. The danger 
was not apparent at (he Pancoast or (he I'lymouih. 

Can these gangways, airways and chutes be made safe? Or must 
tiiey be abandcmed? If they can be mad:- safe, how .shall it be done? 
It is douhM'nl if they can be nmd(» oi-dinai-ily safe (>xcppt by sub-

instead of v.'ood, and wbethor or not that is feasible or practical is 
a question that nnist be left to the general nianagprs and general 
snperinteiidcnis. 

Under the mine law, all phices slionid be made, safe for men to 
work in. Is a gangway half a mile or a mile in length, closely double 
limbered and lagged, and dry as punk, safe for men to work in? How 
can they escape in case of a fire, say half a mile fi-om the face, if the 
tire is not discovered at the start? Under such circumstances they 
would be as bad off as the men in the China ^'ein of the Pancoast 
mine. 

To re])]ace tinib! r with steel, iron or concrete in many of the gang- 
A\ays opened in the Mammoth vein in many of the counties would 
add an additional dcjllar a ton to the cost of production. Can the 
coal companies bear this expense at the present ]>rice of coal? 
While this da.nger exists and has existed for fifty years very few lives 
have been lost by fire in gangways, airways and chutes. But a dis- 
astrous accident of this kind may occur any day, and the purpose of 
this article is to call attention to this matter so that preventive 
measures may be taken. 

The Avondale disaster and the Pancoast disaster are not parallel 
cases. A disaster such as Avondale can never occur again, as every 
shaft and every slojte now has a second o]»ening. Yet there is some 
danger from fire in breakers that Avere built over or near the shafts 
before the law was enacted, or were rebuilt since its enactment under 
a favoi-able ruling of the court on the subject. 

An accident of this kind occurred at the shaft of the Pennsylvania 
Coal Company, where the breaker was destr(\ved. Luckily the shaft 
had second openings available through the outcroj) openings by which 
all the employes escaped. 



MINE FIRE AT THE PANCOAST MINE 

A A-ery disastrous lire occurred in the engine house in the China 
vein of the Pancoast mine of the Price-Pancoast Coal Comjjany, April 
7, 1911. Disasters of this kind are very rare, but they may be very 
destructive both to life and property, as was the case in this instance. 
Not since the Avondale mine fire in September, 1809, has there been 
any similar disaster of eipial magnitude. 

This engine house (if it can be ])roperly designated as such) con- 
sisted of an open space excavated in the coal about 30 feet long and 
10 feet wide, with twelve sets of ten-inch round timber, the collars 
between notches being 10 feet and the height being S feet. The engine 
was jilaced on the floor jrsting on two square stringers and fastened 
to the bottom rock. The ]»latlorm on which the engine rested was 5 x 
8 feet and made of two-i.nch i)lank. From the engine house a small 
opening about 6x0 feet was made through the coal to the passing 
branch that leads to the tunnel. The. engine had been in use for 
about six years and had never at any time caused any apprehension 
on the part of the inspector, superintendent, mine foreman, fire boss 
or any of tlie enqtloyes as to the possibility of danger from fire, and, 
in my opinion, judging from personal observation, no one would have 



22 AXNUAL REPORT OF THE Otf. Doc. 

(leeiiied it possible' that a fire could occur in (lie engine house that 
would be ol such serious consequences. The unexpected happened in 
this instance. 

As can be seen from the tracing herewith submitted, the engine 
house was placed about 50 feet otf the double irack branch leading 
into the tunnel that cuts the China vein and on this branch twelve 
empty cars were standing. The veins at this point form a small 
basin and the tunnel is driviu through the toj) rock of the China vein, 
penetrating the vein a! a distance of oOll feet. The engine was iilaced 
at this jtoint to hoist the coal. 

After (he fin' was ignited in the engine house the heat and smoke 
therefrom were carried by the air current to the double traek branch 
directly opposite, setting the cars on fire and thence to the tunnel 
and through it to the workings of the China vein on the other dip 
and into the workijigs, as can be seen on the map, to the men at tlu^r 
working places in the several gangways. 

It is my opinion, as stated at the inquest, that it was im- 
l)ossible for any of the men to escape, oxcept those in Perry's and 
Jiolton's gangways. As corroborative of ihis oi)inion, it may be stated 
that -Mr. I'erry, who drove the gangway and knew the connections 
better than any other man, lost his life while endeavoring to guide the 
pe()j)le from his gangway to a }>lace of safety. However, sixteen 
persons escaped from ferry's and Uollon's gang\\'ays under the 
guidance of drivers and junuers. 

A few of the jurors at the iiKjuest criticised the metlidd of tigliting 
this fire, but they did so without cause. It is very easy to criticise, 
but if the critics ha<l been there it is hardly prol)able tliat they 
could have used any better method than that employed by Superinten- 
dent liirtley. The fire was extinguished, unfoi-lunaiely too late to save 
the lives of other persons in the mine; but these persons could not 
have been rescued in any way after the fire was discovered. Even if 
(he fan had been siopped, as suggested by a juror, the heat from the 
fire would have created a sufficient volume of air to cairy the jtoison- 
ous smoke from (he burnt \\-ood and coal to the men. 

Ordinaiily about l'r>,(){tO cubic feet of air per minule entered (he 
(nnnel, and it can be assumed that the heat from the fire increased 
(hat amount, so that 50,000 cubic feet of poisoned air per minu(e 
l)assed into the tunnel. Assuming the area of the tunnel to be (JO feet, 
the velocity of the air would have been about 800 lineal feet per minute, 
which means Ihat i\w. air traveled at Ihe rate of a mile in about (H 
minutrs. That being the case, how could any of the jtersons (exce])t 
(hose in Perry's oi- PoKon's gangways who were notitied of the fire 
by tele]ihono) have escajied, or how could any person from outside 
have given them any assistance? Even Harvey, the man that received 
(he telephone message, lost his life while endeavoring to notify his 
co-em]»loyes of their dangei". Men could not breatlu^ the poisouons- 
ladin smoke fi-om the Imrning coal and woo(l and li\'e move than a 
yovy f(nv minutis. 

A great deal was said about there being no second o]»e.nings from 
(his (unnel; that (h<» opening was merely a blind (unnel. Ujton 
seeing (his s(a(emen( in (he news])apei-s, I made a jjcrsoual investiga- 
(ion of (his pardculiu- ])lace and found two secoml o|»enings or avenues 
dial the mill could have escaped through if they liad had a chance.

quiremenis of (he hnv as being always safe and available, no loss of life 
can be attribnted to their condition. P^s^en if the victims had been 
instructed how to escape, in case of accident hy a g^s exjilosion or a 
mine tire, none of them conld have reached the second openings 
through the poisoned atmosi)her(% except those from I'errv's or 
Jiolton's gangways. Under existing conditions, when the engine 
house took fire Ihe fate of a niajoi-ity of the men in (he China vein 
was sealed. 

The second ojiening tlirough the East slo]>e was available lo the 
employes in I'erry's and JioKon's gangways and was a safe outlet 
to those who made their escape without delay. Jt was not, however, 
available as a safe outlet to the other emj)loyes, because they were 
unable to reach it through the poisoned atmosphere. The openings 
to the vein above would have been available as a safe outlet from a 
cave-in or possibly a slight explosion of gas, but in this instance they 
were useless, as they could not be reached in time. 

The accident at the f'ancoast mine has been the means of calling the 
attention of the Legislature to the danger of fires in c<jal mines and 
will and has l»rought a)»out the enactment of measures that will, 
no doubt, do much to prevent the recurrence of such accidents. 

A synopsis of the testimony of the witnesses at the inijuest, which 
continued foi' a i)erIod of eight days, is given herewith, together with 
the rei>ort of the ins]»ector of the district, the report of the coi-oner's 
jury and the verdict of the Jury. • 

TESTIMONY OP WITNESSES AT INQUEST 

David liirtley, sujterinteiidcint of the- i*ancoast colliery, testified in 
part as follows: "On the morning of April 7, 1911, I was sitting in the 
mine office, at about 25 minutes to 9, when the headnnm came in and 
sA\d, 'Mr. Birtlej', you are wanted inside in the Dun more vein.' 1 
said, 'All right.' T jumped up, the cage was waiting, and I got on the 
cage and went down. When I reached the foot of the shaft the foot- 
man said, 'Mr. Birtley, the North slope engine house is on fire.' I 
rushed in of course. When I reached the engine house 1 met L<'o 
Winters, I think, and said, 'Leo, have the men been notified to come 
out?' He said, 'Yes, John Evans has gone to the West slope and 
notified the men, and Walter Knight and the fire boss have gone into 
the tunnel.' With these facts before me I pitched for (he fire. They 
had one stream of water on Ihe fire at that time, and Ave got another 
sti-eam on it from another plug and shortly the fire began to diminish 
in the engine house. In the course of ;U)()ut half an hour, or it may be 
a little longer, we got the fire under c(mtrol. 

J was then at the engine, and Henry Simpson and, T think, William 
Baker were putting out the fire in the little alley that leads from llie 
(Migine house to the gangway where the cars were staiuling on the 
l>assing branch. 1 went out of this i)assageway towards the road 
that leads to the Xoi-th sloi>e. There I met the driver boss and said, 
'Leo, we have got the fire under control again. We have got it about 
out.' He said, 'Come here.' 1 went around the corner. He said, 'All 
those mine cais are on fire.' 'Oh,' I said, 'I didn't know that,' and he 
didn't know it before; and there was a stream of fire I don't know 
how long. There wei-e 14 or 15 mine cars standing thei-e, some of 
(hem were burning and scmie were not. 1 said, 'The bes( thing we

can do now is to get the hose from the surface, the Ilose Company's 
liose, so as to get another stream on llie fire.' So I went out and 
got the hose and I said to Mr. Jones, 'You better i)hone down for 
the rescue car and notify the ^line Inspector.' * * * I returned to 
the mine and aI)out lialf past two the fire in tlie gangway was under 
control. 

The engine house had been there eight years. We had a fire plug at 
the engine house, with 1^ inch hose attached, with water always on. 
Tlie hose was tested every morning by tlie engineer. We had two 
other water plugs and hose convenient. ^Ve had 'M) or 40 men figliling 
the fire. We had all Ihe men that could work at the tire, and all the 
men needed for standing props. 

AVe got the Avater to fight the fire from a three-inch pipe connected 
A\illi the tank on the surface to the foot of shaft. There it was reduced 
1o a two inch pipe and conducted along all the gangways and a 
bi-anch opposite every or nearly every chamber. We liad about ],()(K) 
feet of one and one-half inch hose in several gangways; at about evei'y 
500 feet we had a roll of hose ah\ays ready for an emergency. We 
could have used four hose on this fire, but on account of the limited 
space tAvo hose were all that could ba used to advantage. We ha<l 
great pressure, about 800 feet, the depth of the shaft. Iso person 
could go in i)ast the trap-door on Perry's heading to notify the men 
to come out on account of the dense smoke which would be fatal to 
bi-eathe tn a few minutes. Henry Simpson and George Simons were 
the two men that discovered the fire first." 

James J. Morau, engineer at North slope, testified in i)art as 
follows: "1 am the engineer for both the China and Dunmore veins. 
The morning of the fire, the rope rider, James Caswell, and I came 
in together to the engine house. I opened the cupboard and gave 
Caswell a lamp full of oil and lit the lamp in the engine house. I 
just ran down one trij) that moi-ning and pulled it back u{). I then 
looked around and saw everything Avas all right and I turned down the 
lamp and started for the other slope engine. Tn about half an hour 
or so I started to smell smoke, and in about five minutes more I 
started back to the north engine house and found it full of smoke and 
on fire. But before T reached the engine house Frank Shantis told 
me the engine house was on fire. I couldn't get into the engine house 
on account of the heat and smoke. I saAv INIicheson, the engineer, at 
Hie tail rope wliere the tele])hone is. He said that he had telephoned 
to the men in the tunnel to come out." 

lOngineer Moran was emphatic in staling that he didn't throw any 
matches or anyihing else around that caused the fire at the engine 
house. He said that he was told that Hank Simjison saw the fire first. 

(leorge Simons testified in part as follows: "I am a company man 
and do odd jobs all over the mine, or rather in the Dunmore vein 
where the fire was. When the fire started 1 was inside about I wo 
hundi-od feet from the fire towards the tunnel. My butty said, 'Do 
yon smell anyihing?" I said, 'I smell something burning like rubber.' 
Tlien after a little Avliile T said, 'I believe that is a brake band kind 
of hot.' In five or six minutes I saw the big smoke coming, so we start- 
ed out through the smoke from the engine house. I ran as fast as I 
could to the oIIkm- engine house and told a fellow named Micheson to 
lelei)houe up to the mountain to get the men out as quick as possible.

Ho askofl, 'Wiial i.s (lie iiiadei'?' T said, 'Tlic ciiniiic lioiise is on 
five.' Aller tiial I went back 1o <;(;( (lie lios;* to try !•> put Mio fin; 
dill. Hank Simpson, my bully, ami myscll' wcie ihe tii-st two to figlit 
llui lire. Tlicn L'aifrey came and a fellow named Crouji and liis 
bii((y came, and 1 don't know who else came aflei- dial. At lliis 
time it was about a (juarter to nine. Mr. Birtley came in, but T can't 
say what time lie came in. When 1 lirst saw the engine room it was 
lull of blaze and smoke, and the blaze seemed to be right on the floor. 
1 jiassed the cars on the branches; I lielieve there were 12 empty cars 
on one road and possibly 15 loaded cars on another road. I jjassed 
between them and went right out to the tail rope engine house. I am 
not sure whether the engineer telephoned to the oltice or not, but he 
went to the telephone, as 1 left at once to get the hose on the tire. 
Simpson and myself carried the hose, which was in 50 foot lengths, 
to the water plug, which was about 400 feet away from the fire. We 
couldn't connect with the plug in the engine house on account of heat 
and smoke. It took us from ten lo fifteen minutes to make connec- 
tions and get water on the fire. I first saw the fire about 8. -35." In 
answer to the question, "You saw what was on tire?" He said, ''Yes, sir, 
and it Avas dangerous for everybody inside of it. Nobody could get 
in through that with safety to get the men out. The smoke was too 
strong. [ saw Knight and Dawes going in, but it was before we 
snii'lled the smoke and they knew nothing of the fire then." 

William Alicheson testified in part as follows: "I am the tail rope 
engineer. About half past eight that morning ITenry Parfrey came 
and told me to telei)hone to the tunnel workings that there was a 
fire in the North slope engine house. I tele])li<)ned the old nipper 
rending gate on Perry's heading that he should get John Bray and 
see if the mine foreman was inside; that they should tell the men to 
get out as quick as they could, as there was a fire in the North Slope 
engine house, and he answered 'All right.' I then went over to where 
Ihe fire Avas and met Leo Winters, The driver boss, who told me to 
lelephone for Mr. P>irtley, which I did right away. I phoned Mr. 
r.irtley right after 1 phoned to the tunnel. The telephone to the tun- 
1H^1 was always in good condition, as we had to use it as high as a 
d(»z<Mi times a day, and often more, to see whether the coal in thei-e 
wcnild be ready to be pulled out. The telephone has not been out of 
oi'der for a year and a half, since I have been working there." 

Hai'ry Simpson testified in part as follows: "I am the pipe line 
man. On the morning of the fire while on our way out from the 
tunnel junction we suK^lh^d smoke. 'There must be fire somewhere,' 
I said. My ]>artner said, 'No, I don't think so; it is the brake band. 
They use graphite on that and in running you can smell it.' 1 said. 
'No, it isn't that; it smells like rubber and I Avill go back.' He said, 
'All right. T will go back too.' We started down the branch; the 
smoke was pretty strong. We got by there and reported; gave the 
alarm. The first men T saw were Leo Winters and Hank Parfrey. I 
told them that the North slo]te engine house Avas on fire and that they 
should go to the tail roj)e engine house and telejihoue the men to 
come out." 

Henry Parfrey testified in jiart as follows: "I have been emjiloyed 
at Pancoast six years. My duty is to attend the junction for the 
tail rope engine. That morning T met George Simons coming down 
the tunnel road. He said, 'You have a fire here,' and avc said 'Where?'

'Jii Norlli slojto engine lioiixe.' Then Leo and I ran in. Init couldn't 
j;i't there on account of the .smoke coming down from the water level 
luancli. Simons told me to go and phone to Braj to get the men out 
right away, and I did so. Jake Kray came to the phone. l[e asked me 
what was the matter. 1 told him there was a lire in the North sloju- 
eugiuc house and to go and get the men out. lie said, 'There is always 
sonielliing the matter.' I went hack to the lire then, and by that time 
they had the hose connected and we started to fight the fire. T 
telephoned from the tail rope engine liouse; it was about eight o'clock, 
as we had three trips then up the plane. 

F. (i.NVolfe testified in part as follows in answer to qnesti<ms given 
by Juror liiewitt: ''I am chief engineer of the Pancoast ('oal Com- 
l>any. The surveys are made by our mine corps; the notes are sent 
1o the office; there they are calculated, checked and plotted on the 
map. As soon as the i)lotting is com])leted I go over it myself on the 
original map. The Duumore No. '2 vein, which lies immediately above 
the China, has almost completed first mining; the China vein lying 
so close beneath the Dunmore No. 2 it is necessary that each cham- 
ber in the China be driven directly underneath the chamber above it, 
and that each pillar be placed directly above the pillar underneath 
that in order to keep uj) the roof and mine the coal.'' In answer 
to a (piestion he said. "The distance that Moran had to travel 
between the two engine houses in which he worked is 1,450 feet." 

Thomas Cook testified in part as follows: *'As a rule I am rope 
and puUej^ man, that is, company man. The first thing that morning 
my butty and T went to the i»lane and \\iiile going towards the tunnel 
a car got olT, so we hel]>ed to ])ut it on. Just at this time Walter 
Knight and Isaac Dawes came along and they hel])ed us to put the 
car on the track. Then they went into the tunnel, and we fixed one pul- 
ley, and I went to the old engine house for two more pulleys. When I 
got there a fellow called Crannbow said, 'There is smoke down there, 
"'om.' As soon as he said that I ran down to the East slope, and found 
the smoke was coming over the dip back out from the tunnel and going 
down the slo])e. I said, 'My God ! the tunnel men must know about this 
(>i- they will be lost.' T ran to the engine room and said to ^licheson, 
'Phone into the tunnel; Knight has gone in there and ]>h(Uie to him to 
get the men out; there is a big fire.' Alicheson said. 'I have notified 
lliem in there.' He musi liave tele])honed because my boy who was in 
there said they had a telephone message." In answer to the (]uestion, 
"Your boy said lie got a message from Micheson?" he said, "Yes, 
sir. They got the message and got out, or they would be there." 

John Wrobel testified in ])art as follows: "I am a miner's laborer; 
the miner's number was 280. 1 worked in Peri-y's gangway. On this 
morning a runner canu^ with the drivei- and said it was 'all over.' That 
means quit work. One of the men that said 'all over' was Arthur 
Orcslian. I think it was half ]iast eight or nine o'clock when we were 
told 'all over.' There was plenty of smoke, but always more coming. 
We were told by a runner named John Mahalki that the engine 
hous(^ was on lire. We sat do^vn in the airway about half an hour; 
llicii with other fellows went out." 

Arihiir (Jreshan testified in ]iart as Collows: "I aiu a diiver in the 
China vein in Perry's gangway. 1 was up in the hc^uling and a

me. T asked him, 'Js yonr gate on fire, Mike, or any canvas anywhere 
on fire?' He said. 'No.' 'Well, what is the matler?' I said. Then 
he (old me that a party telephoned that the engine house was on 
fire. AVlien he said the engine lionse was on fire I stop])ed a driver, 
•■Alio was abont 100 feet from me, and told him to go np and tell all the 
men i( was all over. I then went throngh the slo])e to the teleplnme 
(o find how we conld get ont. T tried the jilione fliree times, bnl got 
no answer. I then went to Jake Perry and told him there was lols 
of smoke, and 1 said, 'Jake, yon take ns ont; you know the way.' 
So we Avent down the airway, the bottom of the airway, where there 
are two trap gates from the air-Avay into the branch again, and he 
took ns all into that smoke. I stayed behind. I wouldn't go in, but 
all the others went in. I called on them to come back. In about 
five minutes they came back. I said, 'Come on, boys, let ns get out.' 
Then we met two drivers running from the East slope. T asked, 
'Do you know the way through here?' They said they did, Init that they 
were afraid to go that way on account of gas. I said, 'Yon may as 
Avell die of gas as of smoke.' We kept the lights down as Ioav as we 
could while going through a cross-cut to a chamber and found a 
miner and laborer at work. I said, 'Drop your tools and go out.' Wfe 
went down throngh the chambers, got on the main road, and Joe Oal], 
the runner from the East slope, was there and directed ns through. 
We went to the East slope and had to go (hrongli a liltle smoke. We 
went up the slo]>e and (hen brat it to the foot of the shaft. As we got 
to the foot Mr. Birtley came down (he shaft. That is all T know." 

Leo Winters testified in part as follows: "T am the driver boss. T 
was sitting near (he tail rope engine house about half past eight, I 
think, when Simons and Simpson came ou( hollering 'Fire! the slope

any thins; was wanted. I went to I'eri'y's road to tind if the trip was

telephone he came and told me there was a big fire and that I should 
rnn to Perry's road and tell all the fellows to look ont for the fire. 
T went and told the rnnner, John Mahalki, 1o Iniri-y and tell all the 
miners to go out, that there was a big fire, and I went back to the door 

1 was tending, but there was too much smoke. T was within ten feet 
of Bray when lie was talking over the phone and all T heard him say 
was 'All right.' Bray went to the mountain to notify the other men. 
AA'hen Bray told mo to notify the men you could hardly notice Ihe 
smoke, but later it came in big volumes. After that we went to Jake 
Perry's heading, and there found four miners, three laborers, two 
nip])ers and two drivers. We were all in a group, but without a light, 
and a miner by the name of Bubal gave us oil. Then wo went to the 
airway where Jim Boed has a gate (a trap door) or a door or some- 
thing tending." Then ho explained how they went out, about the 
same way as the others did. 

Paul Bright testified in p^art as follows: "1 am a mine foreman in 
the upper veins called Diamond -Xos. 2 and ."). About twenty minutes 
to ten in the morning I was informed that there was a fire in the 
Dunmore vein. I then went down to the Dunmore vein through No. 

2 shaft and was told that the North engine room was on fire. So I 
went there at once. I saw Mr. Birtley and ho asked me to make an 
eft'ort to get in to the men in the tunnel. 1 made several attempts, but 
failed on account of the heat and smoke; it was impossible to go and 
live. It was then about ten o'clock, so I came back and informed 
Mr. Birtley that 1 could not go in through the smoke, and then began 
to help tight the fire to get it out as (piick as possible, and I employed 
the men around there to stand t indoors, to keej) every one safe 
while fighting the fire. Aftoi- the tire was out we went into the 
tunnel and soon after cntei-ing we came to the body of Dawes, the 
fire boss, and then we went right (Ui in the tunnel until we came to 
the body of Knight, the mine foreman, half way between entrance and 
bodies of dead; then wo roti-oated l)ack to the foot of the shaft." Then 
ho recited how they got the bodies out. 

REPORT OF INSPECTOR 

This disaster occurred on the moi-ning of Aj)ril 7. about S.ilO o'clock. 
A fire in some way was started in the North slope engine house in tlie 
No. 2 Dunmore vein and the tiames were communicated to the proi)s 
and double timber and a trip of twenty omjtty mine cars standing 
on the head of the slope along side of the engine house on the intake 
airway. Two streams of water were immediately brought to play

lljionj^li the second openings. The result was tliat seventy-two ol' 
them were overcome witli the smoke troui the tire and died before the 
tire could be extinguished. The tire was under control at 2 p. m., of 
the same day. 1 was away from home at the time and did not hear 
of the tire until late in the afternoon. I arrived at the mine at 4 
o'clock in the afternoon and found sevc'ral otticials of other coal 
companies there al(»ng with the ciovernment First Aid ('ori)s. 

I at once went into the mine with Superintendent W. L. .Vllcin of 
the Scranion Coal Company, Superintendent Henry (J. Davis, Assist- 
ant Superintendent Henry K. Harris, and William E. Watkiiis of the 
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Jvailroad Com:pany, Daniel 
Young, District Su]»erintendent of the Scrantou Coal Company, and 
Superintendent Joseph V. Birtley and Mine Foreman Paul Jiright of 
the i'ancoast Colliery. We fonnd that Joseph Evans of the Govern- 
ment Rescue Corps was overcome by smoke while trying to rescue 
some of the men and Doctor J. E. Jacob and myself and some of the 
(Jovernment liescue Corps worked continually on him for over an 
hour and a half trying to save him, but he had inhaled too much of the 
smoke and could not recover. He died without regaining conscious- 
ness. 

We then ]>roceeded down the slope and through the East tunnel into 
the China vein to search for the bodies of the unfortunate victims. 
Tin; tirst bod}' was that of Eire Boss Isaac Dawes, who was found on 
the main gangway' road just inside of the tunnel and about three 
hundred yards from the burning engine house, with his face pointing 
outward as if in the act of coming out to see what was wrong. The 
body of Mine Foreman Walter Knight was found in the middle of the 
track at the extreme end of the main gangway road with his face 
]»ointing inward indicating that he was trying to reach the men who 
were working on the inside end of the gangway. Twenty-one victims 
were found in one group in the middle of the gangway junction of 
Perry's gangway all with their faces pointing outward indicating 
that they all fell while trying to escape. The others were found 
along the ditterent gangways right and left of the main gangway 
road. After finding all of the* victims we at once organized several 
]»arties of men Avith stretchers and blankets and ]>roceeded to carry 
out the dead. Those that were ideiititied were immediately taken in 
charge by the dilterent undertakers and prej)ared for burial. The un- 
identified were taken to the carpenter shoj) on the outside which Avas 
turned into a temporary morgue and laid side by side until they could 
be identified by their families or friends. At 7 o'clock the next 
morning all of the dead bodies had been taken out of the mine, ^^'llen 
the recovery of the bodies had bwn completed, little work was required 
to jmt the mine in condition for operation, exce[)t cleaning u]) the 
roof that had fallen when the sup|>()rting timbers burned away and 
removing the remains of the twenty mine cars that were left but 
a twisted mass of iron. 1 notified Doctor James F. Saltry, Coroner 
of Lackawanna County, by ])houe, Sunday morning, April 0, to

RErORT OF COKONEK'S JURY 

T(. .lames F. Saltry, M. I)., 

Corouer, Lackawanna Coiinly, I*a. 

Dear Sir: — 

The Corouer's Ji'i y empanelled lo in\esligate (lie cause oT the deaiii 
of seventy-three persons in the I'ancoast ^line of Price-Fancoast Coal 
Company, 1'hroop, I'a., on the morning of April 1, 1911, beg leave to 
report as follows: 

Innuediately upon being sworn we endeavored to gain entrance lo 
the mine to familiarize ourselves with the various lifts of the China 
vein and that portion of No. l' Dunmore vein, ^^•herein the tire oc- 
curred in the engine house which is directly responsilde for the death 
of the men from smoke. Our desire in this direction was not gratitied 
for the reason that the fan was out of condition and nnder repair. 
As soon as the fan had been adjusted and in working order, we 
again visited the mine making a thorough examination of the site of 
tlie bui-.ned engine house and the surrounding headings and airways, 
besides visiting on the same day, the tunnel leading from ihe No. 2 
iMnnnore vein to the China vein; l*(Mry's and l>olton's headings; the 
Fast slope and the N\)rth slope and the second engine house at the 
head of the North engine house. This \isit did not enable us to inspect 
the entire mine, so we snl)sii(iuently returned and examined all the 
other porti(ms of Ihe China vein not explored on oui* former visit. 

I'etween these visits to the mine we began the taking of testimony 
in court room No. 2 in the Court House in tho City of Scrant(»n, Pa., 
and were continuously at work every day, either taking testinntny or 
examining same from stenographic notes. Vi'e feel that we nuuic! 
as thorough investigation of this accident as our abilit}- would permit 
and if we failed in any respect, it was not in any way due to in- 
activity or lack of binding obligation to procure all the facts pertaining 
to the case. 

The accident was an unfortunate oiu', seri(nis beyond all comi)re- 
liension and the greatest wliich has occurred in the North(M*n Anthra- 
cite Held in over a generation. We cannot refrain from saying that 
we believe the loss of life might have been much less serious, or 
possibly all the men might have escaped if an engineer had been 
stationed permanently at the engine house where the firo started. 
As to the fire itself the otticials of the company maintain tliey did 
not think it would be serious and that they could extinguish it in 
a comparatively short time, >\ithout injury lo the men or loss of 
time to them or the colliery. Subse<|uently, however, it proved their 
error of judgment and as a result Ihe men probably went to their 
graves throngh the overcontidence of the managennent who did not 
realize the seriousness of the situation. 

It has been contended by many witnesses that the fire had been 
burning (piite a length of lime bef(»re it was discovered and that in 
all ])i'obability many, if not all, of the men were dead before it was ex- 
tinguished. He this as it may, the fact remains that the jury can- 



No. 24. DEPARTMENT OF MINES 31 

not condone the ;i])alliy of (lie iiianas^viuciil in <-('nt('i-ing- all ilieir 
ert'orl.s on the fire instead of also immediately notifying all the men 
of their dan<;er when the lire Avas discoxan-ed. AVe are also of the 
opinion that the lire niis»ht have been fought on entirely dillerent 
lines with better resnlis from the gangway side and that if snch had 
been done, the loss of life would not have occnrred, or in any event 
would not ha\e been so serious; this mistake was a serious one. 

The invL'siigation of this terrible catastro]>he has imi»ressed the 
jury that the mining laws are lax. Here is a niiuc! N\hi(h old and 
experienced mining men and mine inspectors swore was the best 
managed and laid out colliery in the valley, practically complying 
A\ith the letter of the law; nevertheless, this catastrophe has proven 
that the mining laws are inadequate and susceptible of many neces- 
sary and vital amendments. We are convinced that sufficient inspec- 
tion was not given this mine by the coiistituted state representative, 
namely the mine inspector. 

It appears to us from our investigation that many innovations may 
be introduced for the health and safety of the men emplo^-ed in and 
about the mines with but little cost and great permanent beneficial 
results. We suggest the Governor recommend to the Legislature 
without delay, or call it in special session, for the enactment of a 
law or laws, which will compel the elimination of all combustible 
buildings or material, including coal oil or kerosene lamps in engine 
looms and pump rooms, in all coal mines or collieries ; that the engineer 
j'.t every engine house in or about a colliery be compelled to remain 
on duty continuously during his day's work; that steel mine tind)ers 
should be used wherever directed by the mine inspector; that the 
nund>er of competent and aggressive mine inspectors should be in- 
creased to guarantee inspection and enforcement of the law: that 
they should be selected from those holding mine foreman certificates 
and elected on a nonpartisan ballot by the (jualified voters em])lnyed 
in and about the Anthracite mines; that telephones bo used in all 
the mines and that the wires of the same be extended 1o the most 
remote parts of the mine Avherein men are employed; that danger 
alarms and danger signals be erected for the further safety of the men ; 
that there be employed in each vein at least one man to sui)pr{ntend 
these devices and keep them in constant repair, besides being com- 
I)elled to make the men working in the lifts of the veins familial' with 
their object and their general a])plication and that ihis employe 
also be authorized to compel all new employes to familiarize them- 
selves with ways of exits in case of disaster; that every colliery should 
have relief corps, each member of which could be conveniently called to 
a central point in a minimum time, to take charge of mine in case of 
accidents and offer relief and succor to the injured or those who might 
be in imminent danger of loss of life through such catastrophe as 
the above and that the Department of :\lines insist on its insj)ectors 
doing their full duly under ])enalty of immediate dismissal, and 
exercise a nntre rigid sui)ervisi(m over their ccmduct. 

Verdict of the Jury 

The verdict of this jury is. That John Baravalla, Louis Korman,

.MINF FIEF AT TFIF GIPSY GROVE BREAKER 

A wry unusual accidt nt occurred at the Gi]»sy Grove breaker. A 
coal chute in the breaker caught fire in some unknown way and two 
of the einjiloyes at the top were killed. As several other i)ersons 
were at tlie top wdien the alarm of tire w'as givFn and made their 
escape, it is presumed that the men who lost their lives could have 
escaped also if they had availed themselves of the opportunity af- 
forded them and not delayed too long. An inquest Avas held in con- 
nectio.n Avith the accident at Avhich many witnesses were examined. 

Some of the testimony is given hereA\ith, together with the report 
of the Insi)ector of the district . the report of the Gorimer's jury and 
the A'crdict of the jury. 

TESTIMONY 01^^ WITNESSES AT INQUEST 

John Taylor testitied in part as follows: "I am the hoisting en- 
gineer at (Ji]»sy Grove mine and have been since 1871. The first I 
lieard about the fire Avas Avlien the headman, Michael Walsh, Avhistled 
doAvn and said, 'There is a little lire down in the breaker somewhere." 
I Avalked to the window and saw some snutke a\\ay back a I the rear 
end of Ihe breaker. I looked on possibly a minute or two, and tele- 
jtlumed down to Ihe fool man. 'Von may as well take the car off the 
<-age and come uji to Ihe landing A\ith the other footman, as Ihei-c^

was u lillle lire in the hiciiUer, iiol iiiucli, and tlii'V sliould not get 
excited.' lie said, "All rigiit.' While waiting- two, ihree oi' I'our 
minutes for the footman to ring to me, he iiad already rung that he 
was going to get the men ont, somebody whistled Irom the head to 
let tliem down. 1 said, 'All lighi, boys! -Inst as soon as 1 get the 
bell from the bottom." So J waited probably not half a minute, when 
they whistled again to send up the cage. 1 said, 'All right,' and 
lang down to the footman, and ^^■llile 1 was ringing to the footman, 
I he headman and two or three others ran in. The headman said, 
•It is all up;' another hollered that 1 should tell (he men in the mine 
1o get out the other way, throngli No. 1. 1 railed then on the men 
in the bottom vein, and again lo ihe men in the second vein; then 
i-alled to the men in the top Vc^in that (hey should go ont tiirougli ;\o. 
1. l>y the time 1 got through talking- to ihe men in the mine, llu' 
whole thing was in a blaze and I had to clear out njyself. In my 
o|)inion, from the lime 1 was notitied of the tire, it was m)t more than 
li\'e or six minutes before the tire reached the head honse." 

Floyd jMnnson, the outside foreman, testitied in part as follows: 

"About 4.15 1'. iM. one of the' men ran and told me that the breaker 
was on tire, and 1 ran and hollered to the engineer to have him whistle 
(hat the breal^er was on tire, and I went on with (he rest of the boys 
ami got ilie hose, started the water on, antl we ran it, I should judge, 
about three or four minutes, >\heji 1 saw the tire was getting the best 
ot me; and then 1 ran and (old .Mr. 'lay lor, (he engineer, to notily 
the men in the mine that the breakei- was on tire. Nn hen 1 used the 
hose 1 hollered to the headmen, Dykes and Farly, (they stood at the 
window j that the breaker was on tire, and as 1 saw four or five 
of the headmen come down, 1 thought Dykes and Early had come down 
along. One of the headmen, McHale, came down and helped with 
the hose. There was only one hose connection on the ground, with 150 
feet of hose in ihree lengths of 5U feet each, Thera was another 
hose conneciiou in the breaker, and about 80 common fire extinguish- 
ers in the breaker and there were men trained to handle them ; besides, 
( here were nine barrels of water inside the breaker. There were nine 
men \\-oi-king on the top and seven of them escaped ; they wall ect down 
the sieps. The men that lost their lives could have escaped, as the 
other men did, had they started in time." 

Harry Miller, weighmaster at the top of the breaker, testified 
IJiat he had worked as a weighnuister at Uipsy Grove about one year, 
and that he was not at work on the day of the fire. He said: "There 
were five exits from the head of the breaker. I knew four of them, 
that is, besides the traj) door. There was one down along the lump 
coal chnte, one on each side of the sci-een room; the other way was 
down by the cage in the shaft. 1 considered all ot these exiis in case 
of emergemy such as this fire.'' 

Michael Walsh, a headman, testified in part as follows: "While 
1 was working 1 saw two men running to the breaker, and I asked 
T(»ny liattiste what was (he matter. He said 'Fire.' Tony ]inshed 
a car otf (he cage and i-an over to the hose, and 1 told (he h(»isting 
engineer that we would not be ready I'or n little while, as there was a 
fire somewhere outside, bnt 1 did not know where Then 1 went to 
(he olfice to see -lohn Dykes and was g-oing- back lo the shall lo get

two piiils to help quoiieli the lire, ^\'heu J wa.s iiiimiiig back to the 
office yoimg Stephens came up and hollered 'Mike I Mike! let us down!' 
I then telei)honed the engineer to let us down, and the engineer 
hoisted the cage oil" the fan, and wo all got on the cage. No sooner did 
we get on than we had to get otf again, as the fire came on us. We all 
ran to the window, and three of us got stuck in the window. I caught 
a timber and pulled myself in and climbed down <)]i the timbers inside 
the breaker and down to the ground. 1 never thought of the trap door, 
as I was very much excited. From the time we heard of ihe tire 
until we tried to get through, I think it was no more than two minutes." 
John Dj'kes testified in part as follows: "1 was weighing coal that 
day on the head, and 1 heard a little excitement outside and looked 
out of the window and saw Floyd Munsou and Charley Engle pulling 
out tho hose. 1 said to John Early, "1 believe there is tire some- 
where.' lioth of us stepped out of the door and around the corner, and 
we could see a liitle smoke rising from the lump coal chute, i said, 
'John, we will take our sheets down in case there is a bad tire.' So 
we grabbed our sheets olf the table when Harry Stevens ran up and 
said. 'Come on I The place is on fire.' We all rushed to the carriage 
waiting lor us and the headman gave the signal. The heat was 
so strong we were driven off the carriage towards ihe window where 
three of us got stuck. Then John Early, Battiste and 1 turned around, 
and as we did the tire took our breath away. So 1 followed John 
Early, who was trying to screen his head by a board, and then saw 
Battiste fall back against the shaft and let himself fall on a trap 
door there. I then caught hold of the shaft rope, and put my legs 
around and slid down until 1 struck the carriage at the foot of the 
middle vein and rolled olf. My head and hands were badly burned and 
1 was choked up Avith the smoke. With others I Avent out through No. 
1. 1 kncAV of the trap door and had gone doAvn that Avay, but as the 
carriage Avas there I naturally thought it Avould be the best Avay to 
go doAvn. I was familiar with the fire apparatus in the breaker and 
Avas a member of the fire company." 

Gerald Mcflale testified in part as follows: "I run the engine (m 
the head. The first I kncAv of the fire, I happened to look out of 
the AvindoAV and saAV a railroad conductor run into the otfice. The 
men there ran oA'^er to the pump house and started to pull out the hose, 
and at once I saw some smoke. I ran oA'er to the barrel and filled a 
Avater pail and ran doAvn to the fire and thrcAV it on. By that lime the 
fire started to rush in (m me, so I went doAvn the steps to the ground 
and started up through the breaker, up Ihe other Avay, to help jmll 
out the oilier hose in the screen room. ^V'lien 1 got into the screen 
I'oom, 1 couldn't go any fai-ther, as the smoke Avas rushing in on me, so 
1 had to turn around and go to the ground again. 1 (lid not notify 
the men at the liead of the fire Avhen I saAV it first, or they could 
have gone down as 1 did, but 1 didn't think the fire Avould amount to 
as niucli as it did," 

Harry Stevens, oiler, testified in part as folloAvs: "I was sitting 
in* the shanty looking out of the Avindow and heard somebody holler 
'Fire!' on the outside, and 1 ran doAvn and got a pail of water and ran 
on the roof and threw the Avater on Ihe roof. Then there Avas only a 
little blaze. All at once it shol ui» and drove me back off the roof, 
and I ran into the plates, and as I was going up the steps 1 met Tony

iNLack and I liollei-cd * Touy, ^o hack.' ^^'l' all laii hark and ilie fire 
was i-iglit after us, and we got on the cage and Mike Walsh gave the 
signal to lower tlie cage, bnt the engineer didn't let us down. We 
were on the cage about twenty seconds when we were driven off by the 
blaze. We then lan for Ihe window and Mike Walsh got out first. I 
hollered to Tony Jlack to get out of the way and [ jumped out of the 
window head first. I am sixteen years past." 

Tony 3Iack testified in part as follows: "[ am sixteen years of 
age. 1 pushed the truck on the head. ^A'hen the fire started 1 was 
at McHalo's engine until some one, 1 think it was jNIclJale, ran for a 
pail of water; so he hollered to me 'Fire!' so I ran to the hose and 
turned the valve. Then I saw smoke and rtame coming and Harry 
Stevens came and said: 'Come on back, there is a fire !' So Mike Walsh 
called us back to the carriage. He phoned the engineer to let us down 
and he said 'All right,' but the cage didn't move. Then Walsh said: 
'Come (m, Tony; let us jump out of the window.' 1 followed him and 
we got stuck in the window, two or three of us, and we had to jump 
to get out." 

David Gilgallon testified in part as follows: "I am the breaker 
engineer at Gi]>sy Grove. Some one came to me and told me to blow 
the whistle for fire. I blew the whistle five times and I could hear the 
whistle just as plain as I ever heard it. I don't know how soon after 
the fire started [ blew the whistle, but I blew it Avhen Jerry McHale 
notified me and he is one of the employes at the head. I have been 
a breaker engineer here for fifteen or sixteen years and am well ac- 
(juainted with the lower part of it, but am not familiar with the head 
house part." 

Jacob Gromlich testified in part as follows: "I am the foreman 
at No. 1 breaker and happened to be on the outside and I saw a little 
fire there, and I telephoned to No. 1 shaft that Gipsy Grove breaker 
was on fire, and then went up to Gipsy. The fire was pretty well under 
headway when I got there. The distance I covered was about 2,500 
feet. By the time T reached the breaker the hose was burned and 
there was no water being put on the fire.'' 

Dominic Lally testified in part as follows: ''I used to drop light 
cars and weigh them. On this day I was at my work weighing cars 
when somebody hollered 'Fire!' and George Engle came and said, 
'Munson, there is fire in the lump coal chute.' We ran for the hose 
in the pump house. When the hose was stretched. Munson said, 
']>.ally, you take hold of the hose, and T will go over to the engineer 
and tell him to slop the breaker and blow the whistle,' and in about 
a minute afterward I heard the whistle blow. The water was on in 
about two minutes after we discovered the fire." 

Seth Watrous testified in part as follows: "1 am a carpenter 
at Gipsy Grove. T was down at No. 1 shaft when I saw the fire in the 
lump coal chute. I went over to the breaker at once, but it took me 
possibly ten minutes to walk that distance, and when I reached there 
the fire had reached the hea<l. There was no water being put on when 
I reached the breaker. The hose had been burnt." 

In answer to a (piestion, Watrous said: "There are four pairs 
of stairs going down out of the breaker that I know of, besides the 
carriage way. Tliere was one at the lower end of the lump coal chute, 
one on each side of the breaker and one down just under the plates." 



36 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE Off. Doc. 

Charles Eiigle testified iu part as lollows: "1 am a carpenter at 
(lipsy (irove. J was in the shop when 1 lieard some one holler 'Fire!' 
and 1 ran ont to the piniij) house to help get the hose out. When I got 
there Muusoii and J^ally were there. 1 went to the pump house and 
found the j)ump A\-orking all riglii. I stood watching the tire about a 
minute and said: "Boys, she has got the best of us,' so 1 went back 
to the shop to gather up ray tools. I don't think it could have been 
more than a minute and a lialf after 1 discovered the tire befoi-e we 
got the water on the fire." 

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR 

This breakei- took fire from a spark from a railroad locomotive 
which was passing with some loaded cars from >>'o. 1 colliery about 
4.15 P. M. Thursday, April 27, IDll. 1 arrived on the scene at o.2() in 
the afternoon. Having gone througli the I'ancoast affair I was anx- 
ious about the workmen inside, but the officials assured me that the 
men were all safe, except two that were missing in the breaker. I 
noticed that the fire had burned the ]tnnip room down and discon 
nected the pipe line and put the ])um]) out of commission. At that 
time they were working (m a line of hose from the washery pump at 
the No. 1 colliery some distance away. I ccmld see that there was 
not sufficient hose. So I went and ])honed to (Miief H. F. Ferber . 
of the Scrantou Fire De]>artment and asked him if he could send me 
some hose. He very kindly respond(Hl by sending three of the men of 
the Scranton Fire J)e])ai'lmenl and three thousand feet of hose with 
instructicms that they were to remain at the tire until they were dis- 
charged l)y me. We worked all night and got the fire out near the 
opening to the shaft. AVith some of the mine officials I then went in- 
side to investigate the conditions surrounding the foot of the shaft, 
and while doing so we found some human bones in the sump, Avhich we 
believe were those of Tony Battiste judging from their size. About 
two o'clock the next afternoon Avhile we were investigating around the 
to]> of the shaft at the surface we came across some more human bones 
which we believe were those of John Early. The only way we could 
identity them was that l^arly Avas small and Battiste large.* 

REPORT OF THE CORONER'S .TURY 

James F. Saltry, M. D., 

Coroner, Lackawanna County, I*a. 

Dear Sir: —

No. 24. DEPARTMENT OF MINES ^7 

(he jury to airiv'o at a I'aii* and honest conclusion based solely upon 
the facts as established by the evidence of the Avitnesses subpoenaed 
and Avho testified iu this case. 

At the outset this jury unhesitatingly declares that the preponder- 
ance of the evidence plainly discloses that the three men who perished 
should not have lost their lives in the breaker tire; their deaths were, 
we believe, avoidable. As to the cause of the fire neither the officials 
of the colliery nor the workmen summoned as witnesses before the 
inipiest have been able to explain. From their sworn testimony the 
jury has only ascei'taiued that the fire was discovered at the end of 
the luui]) coal chute and that the flames spread with startling and 
fatal rai)idity to the top of the breaker where the victims of the fire 
were <Mn}»loye<l. I>ut the cause of the fire must be unex])lained. 

It lias been testified l)y the witnesses that the fire was permitted to 
gain destructive headway before the customary fire alarm was sounded 
from the breaker engine house whistle. This circumstance, stand- 
ing of itself, would ])oint convincingly to negligence on the part of 
the officials. 

lOarly, Battiste and Peter (Jlapp were notified of the fire and had 
fliey started from the bi-eaker at that time they could have escaped in 
safety. 

Verdict of the Jury 

The verdict of this jury is that John Early, Tony Battiste and Peter 
Cla{)p came to their death through their misunderstanding the prob- 
able seriousness of the fire. That they were apprised of the fire in 
time to have left their i)lace of work is shown by the weight of the 
evidence adduced at this inipiest. It has been established that at least 
three of their co-workers employed in the same part of the breaker 
knew of the fire even before the fire whistle blew, and that (hese three 
co-workers escaped from the breaker. The uncontradicted testimony 
of John Dykes, (Jerald Mcllale and Harry Stevens is that they were 
aware of the fii'e, and had seen it from their place of work at 
the time it started, and that Early and Battiste were notified of the 
fire and that had they started from the breaker at that time they 
would have escaped in safety. 

The jury feels, however, that severe censure is mei'ited by (Jerald 
^[cHale for his conduct in leaving the breaker without warning his 
co-workers of the fire, and (hat Harry Stevens should be criticised for 
failing in a duty, wliicli like McHale, he owed to his fellow employes.

38 ANNUAJ> REPORT OF THE Oft. Doc. 



MINE FIRE AT THE BOSTON MINE 

The fii-e at the Boston mine, Plymouth No. 5 Collieiy, of the Dela- 
ware and Hudson Compan}', May 10, was the third one to occur within 
a month. The first was at the Pancoast, April 7, and the second at the 
Gipsy Grove breaker. April 27. 

The number of lives lost in the Boston mine was live. Fortunately 
the fire occurred on the night shift or the loss of life would probably 
have been much greater. 

In the verdict of the coroner's jury it is said that "the fire was 
started by some person or persons unknown to the jury and that it 
was of incendiary origin.'' If the evidence submitted warranted 
this verdict the authorities of Luzerne county, through the district at- 
torney and county detective, should spare no effort or expense lo 
(ind the guilty person and see that proper punishment is inflicted, as a 
fire of this kind may be started in almost any mine and may endanger 
the lives of hundreds of employes. I am not aware that any eft'ort 
has been made or is being made by the authorities of Luzerne county 
or by the coal company to apprehend the guilty person or persons, but 
] hope that some effort of that kind is being made. 

To my personal knowledge this is the first fire of incendiary origin 
inside of a coal mine, but several such fires have occurred on the sur- 
face. 

According to the report of Inspector D. T. Davis, the fire occurred 
at the mouth of man-way on Red Ash Vein Crop. "About half a 
dozen sets of hard wood timber, especially selected and suitably pre 
pared, bark peeled, with lagging composed of three inch plank on 
lop and sides over-lying the timber were used in order to prevent the 
clay from rushing in and ol)structing tlui ])assage-way. Beyond and 
in close proximity to this a i)ortiou of the man-way was driven through 
the rock on an angle of approximately twenty degrees, Avhich pene- 
trated the vein. The volume of air entering through this opening, 
v.'hich was the in-take, was from 40,000 to 50,000 cubic feet per minute. 
The velocity of the current Avas so great that sparks were conveyed 
to the coal and the ignition was almost instantaneous. The products 
of combustion, both comjilete and incom])lete, p]-o<lucing carbon 
monoxide and carbon dioxitle gases, were conveyed Avith the air and 
circulated to all })()rli(»ns of l."> \'ein workings. 'I'liis lyortion of the 
mine is non-gaseous, but, in order to further safeguard ihe lives of the 
persons employed therein, a fire boss was on duty constantly. The east 
and west side of this jdane was ventilated by two sejtarate currents. 
Those em])loyed on the east side escai)ed with much dilliculty as thf» 
smoke entered the workiugs in such a dense volume as to make it 
utterly impossible for them to see in what direction they were going. 
'J'hey were compelled to gi'ope and feel their way until No. S funnel. 
Top split of Red Ash A'ein, Jiad been reacluMl and an iudei»e.ndent cui-- 
ront of air from a ])ortion of the UpjxM' Split was encountered. The 
persons employed on the west side of l'.i })lane were less fortunate, as 
their bodies were found in the face of Two West airway, at whicli 



No. 24. DEPARTMENT OP MINES 39 

l>laee they were engaged at work. It seems that aocordiug (o the con- 
dition of the bodies, for theii- dinner pails were fonnd by their sides, 
tliey mnst have made a great effort to reacli a place of safety, bnt not 
being able to do so on account of the density of the smoke, retreated 
to the face of their working place, at which place their bodies were 
discovered. 

The bodies of the driver and door boy were fonnd on the plane, at 
Ihe entrance to a lift on the east side. The officials of the mine did 
all in their power to rescne the victims. Several persons were en- 
gaged in making an effort to smother the fire and others were inside 
the mine changing the conrse of the current so as to send fresh air 
to Ihe section of the mine to where the victims were employed. 

The workings of 1l> plane are so arranged that the ventilating fan, 
located at the main hoist shaft, abont a mile from the snrface en- 
trance to the man-way, controls the currents circulating through 
the mine. 

Doors had been erected and thrown back, so that in case of emer- 
gency they conld bo immediately closed Avith the desired effect of 
reversing the current in the interior of the mine. The officials and 
miners were greatly surprised that the fire should do so mnch damage 
in a place that was least expected, and at such a peculiar time, but 
the smoke, instead of gradually l>ecoming more dense, entered the mine 
in great volumes, overcoming the employes who had perfect knowledge 
of the means of ingress and egress of this portion of the mine. In 
order to ascertain in what manner the fire originated, I instructed 
D. W. Dodson, Coroner of Luzerne County, to hold an intiuest." 

The following verdict was rendered by the jury: 

"That the said William Anglanicz came to his death (m the lOlh 
day of May, 11)11, at the Boston Colliery, D. & H. Coal Company, 
from being snft'ocated ])y smoke in said colliery. John Russbuski, 
Jacob Kurrilla, John Afalast and George Fender all lost their lives 
at the same time and place, and from the same cause. William 
Anglanicz was a laborer. The evidence shows that all these deceased 
men were working on the night shift, and that about ten o'clock in 
the evening a fire broke out at the opening of the man-way, and the 
smoke from this fire in great (piantities peneirated the ])art of Ihe 
mini' in which they were working and suflocated them almosf im- 
mediati'lv. Six men Avorking in another part of the mine were able 
to work tiieir way out through (me of the other openings. The 
evidence shows thai the said mine had three avenues of escape. The 
manwav, through which the men made their way into the mine, has 
several sets of tindx'r at the ojiening, and it was at this point that the 
fire originated. This manway also served as an intake for air. 
Fifty thousand cubic feet of air j)assed in per minute. The jury 
visited the mine in order to inspect it, and from this inspection, as 
well as from tlie evidence, we find that the fire was started by some 
pers<m or ])ersons unknown to the jury, and that it was of incendiary

CAUSES AND LOCATION OF FATAL ACCIDENTS 

The records I'oi- ilie yeai- sliow (lull as usual Uie two i)riii(i[)a! 
causes ol' fatal accidents in the anthracite mines wtre (i) ialis oi 
coal, slate and rooL and (2) cars. The total nnniber of inside fatal 
accidents was (515, of which li5o or 41.14 per cent. Avere caused by 
lulls of coai, slate and roof, and 1)2 vv 14.9ti per cent, by cars, 'flie 
other causes were explosions of gas, o4 or 5.53 per cent.; ex])losi»'ns 
of }»owder and dynamite, 21 or o.42 per cent.; electricity, 2 or .:>2 i>ei- 
(cnt.; blasts, (57 or 10.85) per cent.; falling into shafts, suffocation by 
gas and miscellaneous causes, 14G or 2:j.74 per cent. 

The accidents by falls of coal occurred as follows: At face of work- 
ings, ;}G ; at pillar work, i;> ; on gangways, 2 ; back in chambers, 5 ; in old 
workings, 1; in chutes, 1; total, 58 or 22.02 per cent. By falls of 
slate at face of workings, 28; at pillar work, 10; on gangways, 5; back 
in chand)ers, ; a total of 49 or 19. oT per ceiiL By falls of roof at face 
of woikiiigs, 1(1;.' ■, ;it pillar work, 21; on gangways, 1:5; in chambers, 
4 ; on slopes, 1; in crt)sscuts, 2; in tunnel, 1; in strange chamber, 2; 
total, 14(5 or 57.71 per cent. 

The total number of accidents by falls of coal, slate and roof at 
face of workings was 10(i or (^5.(51 per cent.; at pillar work, 44 or 
17.39 per cent.; on gangways, 20 or 7.90 per cent.; in chambers 15. or 
5.92 per cent,'; on slopes 1 or .40 per cent.; in crosscuts, 2 or .79 ]>er 
cent. ; in tunnel, 1 or .40 per cent. ; in strange cliand)er, 2 or .79 per 
cent. : in old workings 1 or .40 per cent. ; in chute 1 or .40 per cent. 

To reduce the nund)cr of accidents from falls at or near the face 
of rooms, systematic propping should be adopted in every mine to 
suit the height of roof or slate. The foreman and superintendent 
should decide on the distances betw'een props in the mines and tlie 
foreman or assistant should insist on strict com})liance with the de- 
cision thus made. When this is done no person but the miner himself 
can do anything more to safeguard life at the face of workings, exce])t 
the lire boss, assistant foreman or foreman who may ha])i)eu to visit 
a place at a critical peiiod and be able to warn the men of the im- 
pending danger. As the miner is alone at the face about ninety per 
cent, of the tinu' during the day, he must be taught how to protect 
his own life, in all mines eternal vigilance must h? exercised by the 
worknu'n and a close watch must be kept of all dangerous working 
]tlaces by the tire boss, assistant foreman and foreman. 

Xinety-two ]>ersons were killed by cars. 47 of whom w(M-e killed (»n 
gangways, L8 on sloi)(\s and 27 at other ])laces. This great loss of life 
is utterly inexcusable. The roads should be kept in safe condilion, 
U-ve of refuse and drained, and shcmld be of sufficient width to enable 
]»ersous to ]>ass by (he cars. There should also be safety holes al: 
projx'r intervals. If these preeauti(ms were taken and proper dis- 
(■i|»line insisted u]ton, there is no reason why the accideiils Crom cars 
should not be reduced one-half. 

l''ifty-nine jtersons were killed )»y ex])losions of blasts at face of 
workings and 8 ]»ersons by exj)losions of blasts at otliei- places. lOx- 
plosions of powder and dynamite on gangways and at other jdaces 
killed 21 persons.

lost was 150,127 tons, and the average number of fatalities for each 1,000,000 
tons produced was 0.06. These statistics are given in the hope that they will create 
an ambition on the part of the companies whose records are a proper subject of 
criticism to make a strenuous endeavor to reduce the loss of life, aud on the part 
of the companies whose records are to be commended to make still greater efforts to 
protect the lives of their employes.

NOTE: During the four years, 18fi2-1895, more English-speaking employes were killed than 
foreigners. During the five years. 1896-1900, the number was about the same, but in the five 
years, 1901-1905, more foreigners were killed, and in tlie six years. 1906-1911. there were about 
twice as many foreigners killed. Tliis indicates clearly the change in the character of the 
mine workers during the years mentioned, there being a constant increase of the foreign 
element.

The ton of 2,000 pounds is used so that a comparison can be made with the bituminous pro- 
duction per pound of powder used. 

*This decrease in production per employe inside was caused by the small number of days 
worked on accoimt of the strike. 

tThe increase in production per pound of powder used was caused by the production of the 
washcries during- the strike. 

JThe increase in production per employe was due to the large production of the washeries.

Raymond Colliery. — Breaker burned down January 22, 1911, and 
replaced by a modern breaker of 1,000 tons capacity. The new 
breaker, which resunuMl o])erations Decendier 4, is equipped with the 
latest improved machinery for the preparation of coal, and has an 
annex where all the smaller sizes down to No. 3 buck is prepared. 



]22 REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF MINES Off. Doc. 

It is liglited by electric lamps, a small engine and d^'uamo being in- 
stalled lor that pnri)ose. A large water tank has been erected, caj)a- 
vHy 50,000 gallons, and connected to the water main. A i)owerful 
i)ump is connected to the tank, and pipes carried to every part of the 
breaker and annex. This pump is continually under steam, and by 
simply turning a valve can flood every department of the breaker in 
a few minutes. A rock slope was driven from the Clark vein to the 
surface, a distance of MOO feet, on a pitch of 33 degrees. This con- 
centrates the pumping plant at this point and also furnishes an addi- 
tional second opening. 

Black ])iam!»nd roiliery. — ^Abandoned -lanuary 11), 1011, the coal 
being exhausted. The breaker \\as torn down and tlie umchinery re- 
moved to other collieries. 

BREAKERS DESTROYED BY FIRE DURING THE YEAR 

The production of coal in the First District for the year 1011 was 
icduced somewhat, owing to the destruction by fire of three breakers. 
The Kaymond breaker of the Scranton Coal Company, Avas destroyed 
by lire January 22, and the colliery — a large producer— was idle 
until December 4. 

The Morss Hill breaker of the Morss Hill Coal Company, was de- 
stroyed by fire July 27, which left the colliery idle the balance of 
the year. The com})any has not commenced to erect a new breaker 
to take the place of the one destroyed by fire, but expects to do so in 
the near future. 

The Sunset breaker of the Aiusley Coal Company Avas destroyed by 
fire May 17, and no steps have been taken to erect a new one. Tlrir. 
colliery is a small operation and did not ship any coal during the 
year. 

The Spring Hill Colliery of the Spring Hill Coal Company shut 
down the first of January, and later on was leased to Watkins and 
Sons, who have been doing some develoj-iiug of the pi-operty and 
(•pcrating on a small scale at intervals during the year.

Explosion of Gas in Hoyt Shaft, Ewen Colliery, of Pennsylvania 

Coal Company 

January 10. — Mathew Daily, conijiany man, Frank Leisli, laborer, 
and Patrick Bulger, company man, Avere fatally injured by an ex- 
jdosion of gas in Pittston vein. At 1.30 p. m., Bulger was sent to 
build a wall to direct the air current up to a counter gangway above, 
where Frank Leish was working. Mathew Daily was cleaning the 
road on the counter gangway. ThQ fire boss on the above morning 
failed to discover any gas in the working i)laces. The supposition is 
that Bulger had about completed the wall that directed the air current 
up into the abandoned breast where gas had accumulated when the 
gas was carried into the face of counter gangAvay and ignited by the 
open light of Frank Leish, who was the only person burned. Daily 
was suffocated by the after-damp, Leish died January 12 and Bulger 
died January 25. from injuries received due to the concussion. 

Explosion of Powder in Number 10 Shaft, Number 9 Colliery, of 
Pennsylvania Coal Company 

January 25. — Michael Koach, miner, George Zig-mound, laborer, and 
Andrew Sepcock, laborer, were fatally burned by the explosion of a 
keg of powder. 

These men got into a trip of empty cars with a keg of powder to 
ride in the gangway to work. The trip of cars was hauled in tlie 
gangway, Marcy vein, by an electric motor and the powder was 
ignited either by the electric current or by the men in the car. Roach 
died the same evening, Zigmound February 1, and Sepcock Febru- 
ary 2. 

Four other persons were slightly burned by this explosion while 
riding in the car next to the one containing the powder. 

Explosion of Gas in Number 11 Shaft, Number 6 Colliery, of Penn- 
sylvania Coal Company 

June 5. — ^Walter Fitzsimons, car runner, was instantly killed and 
Martin Quinn, road cleaner, was fatally burned by an explosion of 
gas. As June 4 was Sunday, the ventilating fan on Number 5 shaft 
was slowed down to all?5\v repairs to be made in Ihe shaft, and the 
fan was not started at its regular speed until sometime in the night. 
In the meantime gas had accumulated in the workings of Number 6 
shaft, Red Ash vein, whicli is connected through Number 5 workings 
up to Number 11 shaft. 

The mule barn is situated in the workings between Number 11 and 
Number 5 shafts, and the drivers go down Number 5 shaft to the 
barn. 

The fire boss of Number 11 shaft entered llie mine at his usual 
time in the morning of Ihe 5th and made his examination. On ar- 
riving at the foot of the sliaft he m«M Martin Quinn, Ihe road cleaner, 
at 6.00 a. m., and i>laced liim at n dooi- close to the manway to the 
barn and told liim to allow no person to go in until he returned from 
examining the workings inside. At 6.45 a. m., Fiizsimons came down 
and started down the manway to the barn and lighted a body of gas 
with his open light.

IMPROVEMENTS 

PENNSYLVANIA COAL COMPANY 

Barnum Colliery. — A rock tunnel 7x12 feet, was driven from the 
Marcy to the Pittston vein, a distance of 300 feet, to mine the coal 
under the city of Pittston. 

Number 9 Colliery. — The No. 3 shaft (m Broad street, Pittston, 
was concreted from the surface to rock, and is now being sunk to the 
Bed Ash vein, to be used as a second opening for No. 1 shaft and for 
ventilation; size of shaft, 10x20 feet. 

At Leadville shaft a horizontal, triplex expansion, direct-acting 
wood-lined jdunger ]>ump was installed to deliver 2,500 gallons of 
water per minute against a hoad of .500 feet. 

Number 14 Colliery. — A new slope 7x12 feet was sunk from the 
surface to the Diamond vein, and is driven in the vein 700 feet. A 
concrete arch has been put in from the surface to the vein. A new 
air shaft 12x12 feet hns been sunk from the surface to the Diamond 
vein and concreted from the surface to the rock. A new concrete 
;ind steel air bridge, to connect the slope airway to the air shaft, has 
been completed. 

Two new shafts have been in progress of sinking from the surface 
to the Red Ash vein. No. 1 sliaft 12x16 feet is down to the Marcy 
vein and is concreted from tlie surface to rock a depth of 50 feet. No. 
2 shaft 12x22 feet is down 00 feet to the rock and is concreted the 
whole distance. 

The new air shaft 12x12 feet in ]>rogress of sinking in 1910, from 
the surface to the Checkei- vein and Pittston vein, has been completed 
and concreted from the surface to a point about 30 feet below the 
Hillman vein, making 90 feet of concrete.

I 
The Chapman slope which was abandoned b.v the Iroudale Coal 
Company in the year 1849, was reopened by the Pennsylvania Coal 
Company to recover the pillars left. The coal is taken to Number 14 
breaker, over lnn<l 1,000 feet, and prepared for market. 

LEHIGH VALLEY COAL C0:MPANY 

Miiieinl Spring- Colliery. — The new si eel breaker, to replace the 
one destroyed by tire in March, 1910, was completed and resumed 
operations April o. Jn connection with the breaker, an Ottumwa box 
oar loader Avas installed, and a new breaker engine house, containing 
hoisting engine, breaker engine and jig engine, was built. The load- 
ing of the coal into railroad cars is done by means of a oG-inch 
rubber belt, which conveys the coal from the pockets to the cars. A 
Carney plane for hoisting the coal up into the breaker was installed. 
The empty car plane was dismantled and Ihe cars from the In-eaker 
are now run by gravity over a steel trestle to the head of the Red 
Ash shaft and Baltimore slope. The entire yard surrounding the 
breaker was graded and terraced and retaining walls built at the foot 
of these terraces. An 8-inch bore hole 77 feet deep was drilled to 
drain the water from the box car loader pit to the Baltimore A^ein. 
An 8-mch bore hole was drilled from the surface to the Eed Ash vein 
for silting; which is lo be used in the event of the hole now in use 
becoming blocked. An 8-inch bore hole for ro{)e Avas })ut doAvn from 
the surface to the head of the lied Ash No. 5 plane. A pair of 
20x48-inch first motion engines was installed on the surface, east of 
the reservoir, to operate this plane. The Coal Brook coal Avill be 
lowered by these engines to the shaft level. Work Avas started on 
the reconstruction of the mule barn to make it absolutely fireproof. 
The timber at the head of the Baltimore slope Avas removed and a 
reinforced concrete mouth constructed.

IMPROVEMENTS 

LEHIGH VALLEY COAL COMPANY 

Exeter Colliery. — Inside: The balance plane in the Red Ash vein, 
mentioned in last year's report, was completed and put in operation. 
The Red Ash motor haulage was extended 800 feet to the Northeast 
territory. Five inside bore lioles were drilled, two for drainage from 
the Top to Bottom Red Ash, and three to prove the Marcy vein north 



310 REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OP MINES Off. Doc. 

of the fault from the Pittston to the Marcj vein. The mule barns in 
the Ked Ash and Checker veins and the part of the Marcy barn of wood 
construction are being reconstructed of ccmcrete. No. 8 tunnel, about 
100 feet long, was driven through the fault in the Checker A'ein in 
the vicinity of Knight shaft to open up the virgin territory beyimd the 
fault. To handle this coal a riew slope was driven in the Checker vein 
and new engine installed. A tunnel, 150 feet long, was driven, and 
250 feet of bottom rock was graded to mine the Marcy vein north of 
the fault. A 15 degree balance plane was driven from the Bottom to 
Top Red Ash vein to shorten the mule haulage in the Top Ked Ash 
vein, the coal to be handled by motor in the Bottom Red Ash. Work 
was started to develop the Clark vein in Ked Ash shaft, and two rock 
planes will be dii\'en, one on 15 degrees io serve as the balance plane 
to drop the coal to the Red Ash, and the other on 30 degrees to serve 
as a second opening. The 30 degr(^e plane, about Gl feet long, has been 
completed. The work of installing the air motor haulage in the Marcy 
vein, mentioned in last year's report, was completed. 

Outside: About 30 test holes were put down to prove the Checker 
^ein rock cover in Ihe northwest and southeast sections. Holes are 
now being drilled in the northeast section along the Stevens Colliery 
line. Work was commenced on the installation of a new 463 H. P. 
JStirling boiler and th^ same is nearly completed. A Welch overwind- 
ing device was installed in the Red Ash engine house. New drums 
for the first motion engines at the Pittston Shaft are on the ground, 
and will be installed shortly. Extensive repairs were made to the 
breaker; breaker pockets were renewed and the old circular screens 
are being replaced with shakers ; moving tables are now being iu- 
stallfcd and other improvements are being made to handle the prepara- 
tion of coal. Terra cotta pipe was laid from the Red Ash shaft to the 
main ditch to convey the Red Ash water. A new Ihime was con- 
structed along the Lehigh \'alley Railroad to carry this water. 

Seneca Colliery. — Inside: In the Pittston vein, No. 13 rock tunnel 
300 feet long was driven through fault for development, and No. 10 
slo})e was extended through coal to the entrance of this tunnel. 

In the Marcy vein a ditch 400 feet long was started from the Basin 
in Scovill's Island, which will drain the water and supplant 3 electric 
pumps. This water will i)ass through a new tunnel 400 feet long 
through an anticlinal and run by gravity to the sump of No. 5 pump- 
ing station. A concrete steel pump house was built, with a 2-ton 
tiaveling crane, and a 13 by 21 by 34 by 10 by 3G-inch pumj) was 
installed, comjdetiug ^larcy pumi)ing stati(m. New head was driven 
for No. 5 slope facilitating the handling of coal from this slope. Tele- 
phones were installed at various points inside and outside the mines. 

Outside: Comiiicnced work on tlu> election of a '^^)^){) II. P. boiler 
plant. A new carpirter and blacksmith shoj) built and e(inipj)e(l with 
the latest machinery. Fire])roof light and loaded scale oflicc erected 
and put in use. A branch of the company's mine rescue station Avas 
established here and a brick building erected for it. Complete rescue 
n]>]>aratus has been purchased and is in working order, subject to call 
fiom any colliery in the Division. Conveyor line built to handle fuel 
from railroad trucks to old boiler plant. A 17-inch bore hole was 
started from surfiice to Marcy vein, through which the new pump in 
No. 5 slope will deliver water to the surface. 



No. 24. EIGHTH ANTHRACITE DISTRICT 311 

Maltby Colliery. — Inside: No. 7 slant slope was extended in the 
Marcy vein. A 30-degree rock plane, 206 feet long, was driven from the 
Eleven Foot to the Six Foot, as a second opening to the No. 8 slope, 
mentioned in last year's report. No. 9 slope in the Marcy vein was 
extended and graded. No. 10 slope was driven in the Six Foot. No. 
11 slope in the Marcv vein was started. Three small single drum 
electric hoists wore installed, also two S-inch by 9-inch electric triplex 
pumps. Plans were completed for a 80-degree rock i)lane from the 
Eoss vein to the Nine Foot vein, No. slope. A new balance plane 
was installed in the Six Foot vein, river district, which released one 
motor taken to the Eleven Foot. The reopening of roads in the 
Eleven-Foot, Six-Foot and Four-Foot veins was started to rob pillars 
northwest oi' the shaft. A 4-inch bore hole was drilled from surface 
to the old plane, which broke into the sand years ago, and cement was 
pumped through this hole in the hope of sealing oif this plane. _ It is 
intended to carrv on this work by drilling more holes to fill, if pos- 
sible, the old plane with cement. New roads were driven in the 
lilarcy vein and the electric haulage extended so as to concentrate the 
coal "east of the slope to one lift. The mule barn in the Maicy vein 
is being reconstructed of concrete to make it fireproof. 

Outside: Drilling operations were carried on in the river district 
to prove the Four-Foot vein rock cover. New engines were installed 
on the head of the outside refuse plane to handle breaker refuse and 
hoist coal from the Four-Foot slope. Extensive repairs were made in 
the breaker and new rolls were put in. The colliery fence was ex- 
tended. Feed water regulators were installed at the boiler plant.

placed in operation during the year. 

The colliery resumed operations on a small scale during the month 
of November, after being idle the eutire year, due to the subsidence 
that took place at this plant, by which a large quantity of water was 
permitted to How into the workings from the bed of the Susque- 
hanna Kiver. The work of re-opening is being proceeded with as fast 
as conditions permit. 

Installed in No. 1 slope, Red-ash vein, a 3,500 gallon centrifugal, 
electrically operated pump.

on this property have now reached the Hillmau vein, 930 feet below 
the surface. Connections have been made between the shafts and 
preparations are being made for the erection of a 12-inch concrete 
partition separating hoistway and airway. A\'hen this work is com- 
pleted and towers are erected, coal will be mined and shipped to 
Bliss colliery, Hanover township, for preparation. 

The slope on 15 degree dip, Avhich is being sunk from the Surface 
to the George vein,, has passed through the upper seams and reached 
a depth of 645 feet.

FATAL ACCIDENTS 

On the evening of October Ihd, at the Drifton CoUien- of Coxe 
Brothers and Company, Incorporated, a serious and unexpected acci- 
dent occurred, by which tive men, Toney Plum, flohn Plum, Stephen 
Soflle, Angelo Nazardo and Joseph Camerano lost their lives. After 
the breaker had (^uit work for the day, ^Manus Carlin, the breaker 
foreman, was instructed to take down an old stack that stood over 
an air shaft and was partly surrounded by the refuse bank. The 
intention, and the instruction given the foreman, was to take the 
plank off from the top down, but when they arrived at the stack the 
men refused to go up on the ladder to begin at the top. After some 
discussion, it was decided to cut the slack around near the bottom, 
which was done, cutting the stack about two feet above the edge of 
the bank so as to avoid a rush of the bank into the shaft. After the 
cut was completed the men got on the north side of stack to push it 
over. When it was pushed over, the plank about six feet below the 
edge of the bank gave way and allowed the bank to rush in, sweeping 
the men into the air shaft, and before they could be rescued from 
below the^' were all dead from suffocation. The rest of the party, 
some on the east side and some on the west side of the stack, es- 
caped, when they felt the material going from under their feet. It 
is very easy to see how this accident could have been avoided. Had 
the man in charge thought that the plank down in the shaft would 
give way, I am satisfied he would not have put the meii on the north 
side of the stack.

LEHIGH VALLEY COAL COMPANY 

The comparatively steady work during 1911 required considerable 
gangway work in the Hazleton basin to maintain the production, 
21,735 feet having been driven as follows: 

Tracy 3,885 feet. 

Diamond, 4,795 feet. 

Orchard 4,520 feet. 

Primrose, 1,335 feet. 

Mammoth 575 feet. 

Wharton, 700 feet. 

Gamma, 1,905 feet. 

Buck Mountain, 4,020 feet. 

Considerable work was done on the property to replace inflammable 
structures and heavy timbering by concrete and iron construction. 

Hazleton No. 1 Colliery. — New stable of conciete was constructed 
in the Wharton vein, 5th lift, No. 1 slope. Pump-room in rock was 
constructed in the Wharton, 7th lift, No. 1 slope. Wooden floors re- 
moved from pump-rooms and replaced by concrete. Stone walls were 
built on Ctli lift to secure slope pillars. Stable concreted in No. 8 
slope section. 

Top of manway concreted and steel supports put in ])lace of timber, 
etc. Pumps are being installed on 7th lift in Wharton vein and con- 
nection made with present column line in main slope through a shaft 
there by removing fire risk by tlie j)umps in Mammoth vein. 

Throughout Nos. 1 and 8 sloi)es preparations are being made to 

install electricity, to be furnished by the Harwood Power Company. 

A sub-station will be erected at the breaker and the cable run through 

a bore hole to the Buck Mountain vein, then follow through old

^08 REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OP MINES Off. Doc. 

breasts to the 7th lift, from which a slope is to be sunk to a lower 
lovel to open a new lift of the Buck Mountain vein. The turnouts 
have been completed and the room is made for the electric hoist. 

An 8-inch drill hole was put down through the old Xo. workings 
find extended to the Buck Mountain vein, for the purpose of ascer- 
laining the elevation of Buck ^lountain, Wharton and Gauima veins 
in the basin. It is intended ro extend the 5th lift tunnel to the south 
;ind drive a plane to the ^Vharton basin, and open these veins, bring- 
ing the coal to Hazleton No. 1 breaker. 

Elevators were erected to handle refuse from boiler house and 
breaker. 

Coal was also made available by the stripi)ing operations, which 
were extended by excavating 5G,G47 yards, making a total of 530,518 
cubic yards u}j to January 1, 1912. 

Hazleton Shaft Colliery. — At this colliery, which also handles 
Eckley, Stockton, Tdiiihicken and Deringer coal, an elevator wa's 
elected to handle breaker wash. 

The inside work was pushed in all directions to maintain produc- 
tion. 

Two short tunnels were driven, one 60 feet from Orchard to Dia- 
mond, and one 40 feet, from I'rinirose to Orchard. 

The new pumping j)laiit, on elevation of 1,050 feet, was completed 
and started July 3. The ])rincipal object of this installation was to 
lower the water in the Diamond basin and finally in the Stockton sec- 
tion, which at once would open a large field of coal and overcome 
for the future the difficulty to maintain and increase the production. 
Over 1,000 feet of test holes were driven in the so called "fire sec- 
tion," west of Stockton ivo. 8 slope, which proved thai no fire existed 
at present time, so that the greatest obstacle to loweiing the water 
en the East Sugar Loaf land has been removed. The water is ta]i](ed 
by several 4-inch drill holes, and finally taken through 2!-inch drill 
holes to the new pumping plant mentioned above. The area to be 
drained is A-ery extensive and a second pump provided for when the 
pump and sump room were made, will be b^t up. 

Very little work was done on the East Sugar Loaf Coal Company 
land (Stockton No. 2), as the working level was submerged for over 
one-third of the vcar. Only 615 feet of gangwav driven: Tracv, 165 
feet; Diamond. 200 feet; Orchard, 160 feet. 

On the No. 5 strip|)ing, by excavating in eastern direction, 70,436 
vards were removed, making a total of 612, ()02 vards to Januarv 1, 
1012. 

S}>ring ^Mountain Colliery. — Gangway work was pushed as fast as 
condition of veins permitted .'{.JMKi feet of gangway having been 
driven: Wharton, 275 feet: Buck Mountain, :!,18.'* feet: Lykeiis, 535 
feet. 

Several hundred feet of gangway reopened south of and adjoining 
the stripping section, in which 181,237 cubic yards were removed, 
bringing the total to 424.068 yards to January 1, 1012. 

The slope paralleling the Western boundary pillar in the Buck 
Mountain vein has been extended and two levels started eastward. 
A rock slo])e has been branched off to open the Lykens vein, and a 
little east of old Slope No. 1 a Rloj)e is Iteing sunk across the pitch 
on the Primrose vein. Avhich had been te?<trd by bore hole?i and was 
exposed in caves on the ^lamnioth vein. 



No. 24. ELEVENTH ANTHRACITE DISTRICT 399 

Piepaiatious aie being made to install electricity, furnished by the 
Bai wood Power Company. A bore hole was sunk near the rope hole 
for boundary slope, through which the cable will be taken into the 
mines. 

Spring Brook Colliery. — ^The breaker, which had been used as a 
washery, has been abandoned and is being dismantled. A new wash- 
er^' has been built and i)ut in operation i)rfcparing the waste banks. 

Considerable improvements were made by replacing inflammable 
structures and heavy tind)ers by concreting and steel supports — for 
instance, at bottom of Slo})e No. 1, the shaft was retimbered and 
pump foundation concreted. Htables, feed houses and harness rooms 
were also replaced by concrete structures. 

Substantial and convenient manways were driven connecting No. 
1 slope and No, 2 slope workings and providing the second opening. 

Fum])-i'oom in rock slojie was completed and concrete oveicast made 
(.n Hud lift, slope No. 2. This slope has also been resilled and new 
rails put down. 

A mile of gangway was also driven, viz: Wharton, 145 feet; Buck 
^founlain, l,:n5 feet; Lykens, 3,070 feet, and 606 feet of gangway 
reopened in the ]\Iannnoth vein. 

A trial slope in the Lykens vein, otf the East gangway in the Under- 
ground Buck Mountain slope. Slope No. 1, has been sunk to the 
Basin, which was reached at a distance of 210 feet. 

Machinery was installed on the 5th lift, Lykens vein, Slope No. 2, 
to follow the spooned dij>ping eastward with a dip gangway. 

COXE BROTHERS AND COMPANY, INCORPORATED 

Drifton Colliery: No. 1 Slope. — No actual opening work was done 
in this slope, except 530 feet of gangway driven otf the west tunnel 
in the Wharton vein. 

Coal was taken from robbings in the Buck Mountain in lieu of 
the coal obtained previous!}' from the George Moore tract, which was 
not released again until the latter part of December, 1911, so that 
|>ractically no mining was done during 1911 from the Black Creek 
Improvement Company's land. All the other coal came from the 
Wharton and Mammoth veins inside, off gangways driven several 
years ago, and the strippings principally, which were extended, and 
from which 81.140 yards were removed, which brings the total yardage 
of all classes up to 3,057,638 by January 1, 1912. 

No. 2 Sl()j>e. — The actual opening work was confined to driving 
gangw.vy^ in tht^ subterranean slo])e, following the synclinal. The 
East gangway in the top split has reached the ui)i)cr level and (he 
face of the West gangAvay is within 800 feet of the Lattimer boundary 
line. Several counters are driving on the flat saddle workings to the 
south, and a tunnel 130 feet long was driven near the saddle from the 
top S{tlit to the bottom split. 

The concrete stable, mentioned in last year's report, has been com- 
[leted. 

Deringer Colliery. — No new developments can b? reported from this 
colliery, except possibly that the No. 18 West gangway, bottom level, 
Gowen Slope No. 4, has passed through the fault and entered on 
territory which previously was considered barren, disturbed by faults. 
Also the No. 1 West gangway, Gowen No. 3, is continuing unexpec- 
tedly in very good coal beyond what was supposed the extent of the 
coal veins. 



400 REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OP MINES Off. Doc. 

In the stripping in the Deiinger North basin 135,802 yards were 
excavated, making 313,549 yards removed up to January 1, 11)12. 

Tomhicken Slope. — No new work was opened at this ])lace and all 
coal is obtained by pillar mining above water level. The coal is 
taken to the Hazleton shaft breaker. 

Eckley Colliery. — Princij)ally reopening work was done in this col- 
liery, with exception of 720 feet of gangAvay in the ^^'harton, Slope 
No. 0, wliere driving to the \ves( ii readied I lie ciop. across tlie saddle 
cutting the vein off, so that these workings do not C(mneet with the 
overlying veins recently developed in the ad.ji>iuing i)ropeity, tributary 
to Highland No. 5. A proving slope KJU feet in length, was sunk 
across the saddle to the south, which possibly is in the same basin 
as the Highland No. 5 top vein workings; the synclinal was struck 
at 160 feet from the saddle. There were no indications whether the 
basin dipped east or west and no proving done to denionsti-ate it. 
To the east the gangway is following the spoon, and it is contem- 
plated to sink a ])r()ving hole to deterunne the basin and decide on 
future developments. 

The strippings have been continued and at lUick Mountain sloi)e 
No, 1 basin, 354,713 yards were removed or a total of 2,05."), ItC) yards, 
and at Buck Mountain Slo]>e No. 6, 137,(I7G yards were removed, 
bringing the total up to 872.!)99 yards by -lanuary 1, ]!)12. 

The Eckley-Buck Mountain coal is now being taken to lli;^ llazleton 
Shaft colliery and the Eckley breaker is o})eratcd as a washery. 

Stockton Slope. — The work in this slope Avas greatly interfered 
with by the water rising above the working levels, l^ast and West 
gangways were extended on the north dip of the Gannna vein; the 
P^ast gangway has reached the line after driving 175 feet in 1911, 
while the West gangway advanced 550 feet. An airway was driven 
from the southwest counter in the Wharton to give the necessary 
ventilation. 

PARDEE BROTHERS AND COMPANY 

Lattimer Colliery. — A tunnel 150 feet in length has been <lriven

IMPROVEMENTS 

PHILADELPHIA AND READING COAL AND IRON COMPANY 

Potts Colliery. — Water was turned into the mine on April 29, 

1910, with a view of extinguishing all fires, that is, to the highest 
point they could reach with water. On November 18, 1910, the 
water reached the highest point possible. While the flooding of the 
mine was being done five fire slopes were sunk on the Mammoth 
vein, on the hill east of the breaker, to get at any fire that might 
be above the level reached by the water. Cross-headings were driven 
between these slopes to explore the territory. Work at these slopes 
and headings was completed in February, 1911, and all of these 
openings were afterwards filled with slush, which was pumped 
from the slush bank at breaker. 

The Avater in the mine remained at a standstill until February 28, 

1911, when the drawing otT of Ihe Avater from behind the brick dams 
commenced. August 9, 1911. Ibe colliery was entirely free of water. 

A new breaker equii)]>ed with the most modern machinery and 
appliances was built on the site of the old breaker. 

The old Primrose hoisting engines were moved to a new location 
195 feet north of old engine house. The Primrose slope trestle was 
extended to a new landing in order to dump the coal from this slope

slope sunk 110 feet on crop of Top Split vein, South dip, pvoA-ing 
gangways and chutes driven, and a second ojiening driven np to 
surface from East gangwav. No evidence or fire could be discovered 
and operations were resumed in this section October 3, 1911. 

Greenwood Washery. — New dirt-bank material hopper built and 
conveyor lines renewed, also general repairs to the breaker structure 
and machinery. 

Hauto Washery. — A 500 horse power battery of Stirling boilers 
was removed from Coaldale Washery and erected at this plant. 

A new colliery to be known as Summit Colliery is in course of 
development at a point about midwa}' between Lansford and Nesque- 
honiug Collieries. The main water-level tunnel has been started and 
preparations are now under way to commence sinking two shafts. 
During the year a Mine Rescue car was fitted up in good condition 
with the Draeger Oxygen Apparatus and proper first-aid raa'ierial, 
and is kept in readiness for prompt movement to any of the collieries 
in case of necessity. Too much praise cannot be given the First Aid 
Cor])s of this company for the interest they take in their humane 
work, particularly with the Corps of Nos. 4 and 8 Shafts and No. 8 
Water level, who contributed their time and money to bring their 
medical rooms to such a state of perfection as to be second to none 
in the Anthracite coal region. 

ESTATE A. S. VAN WICKLE 

Coleraine Colliery. — Wheelbarrow basin: Sunk an inside slope 12 
feet by 7 feet b}^ 150 feet long, angle 2:> degrees, from the ^Vest gang- 
v/ay, Buck Mountain vein, to the basin. Drove a tunnel 87 feet long 
through a fault at the bottom of the slope. Made a pump house and 
installed a pump with all necessary steam and water pipes. Drove 
a rock tunnel from the same gangway to the Gamma vein, 177 feet 
long, and made a new stable all in rock to accommodate 10 mules. 

In Whee]])arrow ba»in, Wharton vein, sunk a new slope 7 feet by 
:\'2 feet by 200 feet long, angle 21 degrees. 

No. 7 Buck Mountain Sloite. — Drove a tunnel through a fault in the 
Kast 4th level gangway, distance 150 feet. 

Drove a tunnel from the West 4th level gangway south to the 
Gamma vein, a distance of 108 feet. 

No. 7 Gamma Slo}>e. — Sunk the slope down another lift, distance 
172 feet, angle 27 degrees. Drove a tunnel from tlie bottom of this 
slope to the Buck IMountain vein, distance 00 feet. 

Flory Slope. — Sunk an inside slope to the basin of the underlap 
in the IMammoth vein, distance 88 feet, angle 27 degrees. 

No. 2 Old Mammoth Slope. — Sunk a slope South to the basin of 
the underlap, distance 164 feet, angle 11 degrees. 

Sinking a slope 12 feet by 7 feet clear of rail from the Mammoth 
■ o Wharton vein, sunk 173 feet in coal, angle 18 degrees, and 253 
feet in rock, angle 25 degrees ; present depth of slope 425 feet. 

No. 2 Strii>])ing. — Sunk a slope to mine the coal left in the Old 
Carter workings, distance 105 feel, angle 20 degrees. 

Made connections from the Old No. 1 Wharton slope tlirough the 
Carter tunnel to the Buck Mountain slope, making new bottom and 
hoisting the No. 1 Wharton coal through the liuck Mountain slope. 
Abandoned all hoisting of coal thrftugh No. 1 sloi)e. 

No. 9 Slope was abandoned June 5; exhausted. 



No. 24. SEVENTEENTH ANTHRACITE DISTRICT 551 

COXE BROTHERS AND COMPANY, INCORPORATED 

Beaver Meadow Colliery. — The main drainage tunnel mentioned 
in last year's report was extended across the Big Vein basin for 
ISO feet and is being continued now square to tlie measures in 
Xorthern direction to develop the underlying A-eins, which have been 
tested by diamond drill holes. The Wharton territory has been ex- 
plored and opened b^^ a gangway to the North, which has advanced 
800 feet beyond the face of the old workings. The coal is now moved 
by a complicated system of counters and back-switches, but since 
the extent of the basin to the North has been satisfactorily proved, 
a rock slope will l)e sunk to tap this section direct. 

The strippings have been extended on the continuation of the No. 
8 basin, 40,398 yards having been excavated, and in the Greenfield 
basin 75,446 yards were moved by the contractor, bringing the total 
excavation in these strippings to 1,191,012 cubic vards by January 1, 
1912. 

At Beaver Meadow Slope No. 4 the gangway work in Buck Moun- 
tain and Gamma veins advanced steadily and proved the usual irre- 
gularities of the three splits of the Buck Mountain vein. 

Two modern fireproof hospitals were constructed, one in No. 4 
slope and the other in No. 2 slope. 

EVANS COLLIERY COMPANY 

Evans Colliery. — Installed one set of Stirling boilers 350 horse 
I>ower, two Hazleton jigs, and a new State line. 

Evans No. 2. — Gamma slope has been abandoned temporarily.
