FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL COAL REPORT OF ILLINOIS. 
INTRODUCTORY. 



The year ended June 30, 1924, shows a total production of 72,308,665 
tons, a reduction from last year of 3,205,430 tons. This year there 
were 99,765 employes working an average of 140 days, and the average 
tonnage per man per day was about one-fourth of a ton less than last 
year. 

The railroads handled 66,644,747 tons, or 92.17 per cent of the 
total product. Of this amount 44,242,533 tons were loaded on cars 
at the mine and shipped to market, 21,938,491 tons sold to railroad 
companies and 463,723 tons were supplied to locomotives at the mine 
chutes. Three million three hundred forty -nine thousand four hundred 
sixty-two tons were disposed of locally, 1,742,146 tons were used at the 
mines and 572,310 tons wasted by loss in preparing for market, and 
including all coal on liand at the end of the year. 

Of the 99,765 employees 89,502 worked underground and 10,263 on 
the surface. The number of boys under 21 years old numbered 4,864. 
The average number of days worked for all employes was, in shipping 
mine 139, local mines 140. 

There were used in the shipping mines for blasting down the coal 
1,159,606 kegs of powder, 155,015 pounds of dynamite and 3,299,721 
pounds of permissible explosives. Of the 338 mines, 212 used powder 
only, consimiing 933,425 kegs and producing 33,599,673 tons: 45 mines 
using only permissible explosives to the amount of 2,588,617 poimds 
produced 17,306,268 tons; 50 mines used 226,181 kegs of powder, 
155,015 pounds of dynamite and 741,110 pounds of permissibles in 
blasting 16,966,983 tons. No explosives were used in 31 mines in 
which 2,451,439 tons were mined. The estimated cost of these explos- 
ives is : 

Powder $2,493,152.90 

Dynamite 41,854.05 

Permissibles 501.558.05 

Total $3,036,565.00 

Of the 338 shipping mines in operation this year, 215 used machines 
for undercutting the coal. Three thousand twenty-three machines 
were used, undercutting 50,064,304 tons. This shows that 60.6 per cent 
of all shipping mines used machines, undercutting 71.2 per cent of the 
product. The underground haulage was done by 1,565 motors and 
4,411 mules — 20 mines using motors only, 61 mines using mules only, 
and 239 using motors and mules. The mines using mules only pur- 
duced 2,920,123 tons, or 4.15 per cent of the total output. 



8 

The number of men killed in and about the mines was 184 — 176 
underground, four on the surface and four in shaft accidents. Falls of 
roof and sides were responsible for 76 deaths, or 41.3 per cent of the 
total number. Three thousand eight hundred ninety-five employees 
were injured so as to lose thirty or more days time. Four hundred 
seventy-four of this number did not return to their work, some on 
account of the severity of their injiuies and some removed to other 
fields of labor. The average time lost by the men who returned was 
55.8 days. The largest number injured in any one occupation, that of 
loaders, was 1,305 and the cause of the injury of the greatest number, 
1,069, was falling roof and sides. 

The following summary reveals important data of the report in 
condensed form.

Fatal Accidents 

July 9, 1923, William Bailey, machine man, age 56 years, widower, was killed 
by a fall of slate in Madison Coal Corporation's No. 6 mine. He leaves one child. 

August 17, 1923, Joe Bonmerito, miner, age 52 years, married, was killed in 
Peabody Coal Company's No. 6 mine, by a fall of slate, which probably would have 
been avoided if deceased had followed instructions in regard to putting up a cross- 
bar. He leaves a widow and five children. 

August 23, 1923, Thomas Bresman, miner, age 19 years, single, employed in 
No. 2 mine Sangamon Coal Company, while uncoupling cars was caught between 
them and killed. 

September 29, 1923, William Peters, miner, age 45 years, married, died from 
effects of injuries received three days previous while preparing a shot in the No. 55 
mine, Springfield District Coal Mining Company. It is supposed that deceased 
was using an iron bar to place powder in the hole and came in contact with a sulphur 
stringer, causing a spark to ignite the powder. He leaves a widow. 

October 23, 1923, Paul Widowski, miner, age 29 years, single, was killed by a 
shot explosion, in No. 6 mine, Madison Coal Corporation. 

November 20, 1923, Peter Hottenhouse, miner, age 36 years, single, was killed 
by a fall of slate in Sangamon Coal Company's No. 2 mine. 

January 14, 1924, William Seaborn, laborer, age 48 years, married, was killed 
at Chicago, Wilmington and Franklin Coal Company's Thayer mine. Deceased 
was placing brattice boards on the cage to send down to the night shift, when, 
without warning, a chunk of coal came from some where above and struck him on the 
head, killing him instantly. He leaves a widow. 

February 5, 1924, Earl Spencer, miner, age 27 years, married, was crushed to 
death between pit cars in West End Coal Company's mine. He leaves a widow and

HISTORICAL 



The first discovery of coal in the United States was made in 1679 by Father 
Hennepin, one of the early explorers of the Mississippi Valley, near where the city 
of Ottawa is now situated, but there is no record of any mines being opened m that 
locality until long after mining was begun in the southern part of the State. 

The records of the early history of coal mining in Ihinois are very meager, the 
first record to be found states that coal was mined in Jackson County in 1810. These 
mines were on the Big Muddy River and worked by drift along the outcrop m the 
bluffs; a flatboat was loaded and shipped to New Orleans. No other record of 
mining appears until 1832, when several boat loads were sent from the same vicmity 
to market. The next year, 1833, 6,000 tons were mined in St. Clair County, and 
hauled by wagons to St. Louis. _ . ,„ ■ e 

The United States census of 1840 records that coal was mined m 19 counties ot 
Illinois to the amount of 16,968 tons and that 152 men were employed in the industry. 
From 1840 to 1860 we have no record of coal mining in the state, except the census 
report of 1850, which includes coal with all kinds of mining, stone, lead, etc. The 
census of 1860 gives the output of coal as 14,200,000 bushels, (568,000 tons), and the 
number of employees 1,049. . 

No records can be found which show the progress of mining in this state uritil 
the census of 1870; here the number of counties producing coal is given as 37, with 
an output of 2,624, 163 tons for the year, and 6,301 men employed. The next record 
is the census of 1880. This gives the output for the year as 6,089,514 tons, the 
product of 46 counties, employing 16,301 men. 

The constitutional convention of 1870 incorporated into the Constitution the 
first provision authorizing the General Assembly to pass laws for the protection of 
men engaged in the operation of mines. 

The first mining law enacted under the provisions of the Constitution was by 
the Twenty-seventh General Assembly, 1871, approved March 27, 1872. This law 
provided for county inspectors and that reports be made to county boards. Amend- 
ments were made t'o this law by the 28th, 30th and 31st General Assemblies, but none 
of these amendments provided for making reports to any state officer. The Thirty- 
third General Assembly, 1883, amended the law by dividing the State into five 
inspection districts and provided for the appointment by the Governor of a State 
inspector for each district, and for the making of annual reports to the Bureau of 
Labor Statistics. This law also provided for an examining board under the Bureau 
of Labor, whose duty it was to examine all applicants as to their fitness for state 
inspector of mines. 

In 1887 an Act was passed providing for the examination of all mines every 
morning by an agent of the proprietor. 

The General Assembly, in 1891, enacted a law which provided for the examina- 
tion of applicants for mine manager by the Board of Examiners and prohibited the 
employment of any one as mine manager, in any mine equipped for shipping coal 
or any mine whose output may be 25 or more tons per day, after January 1, 1892, 
unless such person had first obtained a certificate of competency or a certificate of 
service, from said Board of Examiners. 

In 1895 a law was enacted dividing the State into seven districts with an 
inspector for each district, and providing for the examination by the State Board of 
Examiners of applicants for fire bosses and hoisting engineers, and prohibiting, after 
July 1, 1896, the employment of anyone as such without first obtaining a certificate 
of competency or service from said Examining Board. Certificates of competency 
were good at any mine in the State. Certificates of service were valid only at the 
mints ^hcre the persons employed had been in continuous service for one year or more. 
On April 19, 1906, the E.xamining Board by resolution, provided for the issumg^of 



316 

mine managers' certificates of the first and second class. The first class certificates 
to apply to all mines in the State and the second class to apply to mines employing 
less than ten men. 

In 1899, a general revision of the mining law was enacted. Much that was 
ambiguous and mconsistent, resulting from numerous amendments to the old law, 
was eliminated and many changes and some new features were added. These 
changes mcluded the elimination of the State Board of Examiners and provided for a 
board to be appointed by the Commissioners of Labor to be known as the State 
Mmmg Board. The name ' ' Fire Boss ' ' was changed to mine examiner and provisions 
made to exchange certificates of service for certificates of competency. This provi- 
sion applied to hoisting engineers as well as to fire bosses. Required all mines, 
regardless of their capacity, to be in charge of certified mine managers, mine examin- 
ers, and hoisting engineers; giving the Board of Labor Commissioners the power to 
change inspection districts, and providing for the necessary traveling expenses of the 
inspectors; provided for the compensation of inspectors to be made by the State 
instead of the fee system, which required the owners of mines to pay a fee, varying 
from $6.00 to $10.00, according to the size of the mine and number of men employed, 
for the inspection; authorized the appointment by the board of supervisors, or 
county commissioners, of county inspectors of mines in any county in the State in 
which coal is produced. In the former Act county inspectors were authorized only 
m counties producing 800,000 tons or more per annum. 

In 1905 the Legislature provided for the division of the State into ten inspection 
districts with an inspector in each district, and also enacted what is known as the 
' shotfirers law." An amendment was passed in 1907 giving the Governor the power 
to appoint the State Mining Board. Prior to this time this power was vested in the 
Commissioners of Labor. 

An Act in force July 1, 1908, provided for the examination of all persons seeking 
employment as a coal miner, by a board to be styled "The Miners Examining 
Board." This board was to be created in each county of the State where the business 
of coal mining is carried on, and to consist of three practical coal miners to be appoint- 
ed by the county judges in their respective counties. 

In 1910 an Act was passed providing for fire fighting equipment in coal mines, 
and mine fire fighting and rescue stations in coal fields. 

The General Assembly, in 1911, made a general revision of the mining law, 
amended several sections of the mine fire rescue stations law and enacted a law 
regulating the character of black blasting powder. 

Prior to 1911 the duty of compiling, tabulating and summarizing the reports 
of the State Inspectors, known as the annual coal report, was under the supervision 
of the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This work was then transferred to the State 
Mining Board. The law also provided for twelve inspection districts with a State 
inspector for each district. 

In 1913 the law of 1908 creating the Miners Examining Board was amended, 
providing for a commission of three members to be appointed by the Governor, their 
salaries to be paid by the State. Said board to hold at least 12 examinations in as 
many places each calendar month. No person was allowed to mine coal without 
first obtaining a certificate of competency so to do, by satisfactorily answering the 
questions propounded by the board. 

The Fiftieth General Assembly, in 1917, passed what is known as the Civil 
Administrative Code, consolidating the executive activities of the State under nine 
Departments. All matters relating to the mining of coal and other minerals were 
placed under the Department of Mines and Minerals, the executive officers of which 
are: a Director and Assistant Director, a Mining Board consisting of four members 
and the Director of the Department, and a Miners' Examining Board of 4 members. 
This law became effective July 1, 1917, and on that day Evan D. John assumed the 
duties of Director and Martin Bolt, Assistant Director. 

The Department was then organized into the following divisions: 
General Office. 
Inspection. 

Miners' Examination. 
Mine Rescue and First Aid. 
In conipliance with the law, which gave the Department power to inquire into 
the economic conditions affecting mining, quarrying, metallurgical, clay, oil and other 



317 

mineral industries, a new division was created soon after the Act became effective, 
known as Economic Investigation, and James Taylor was appointed to the office of 
investigator. 

An additional mine inspector, known as Inspector at Large, was provided for 
in the appropriation made to the Department by the Legislature in 1919, and Richard 
Neeson was appointed in July of that year. 

The Fifty-second General Assembly, in 1919, enacted a law to become effective 
January, 1922, governing the operation of metal mines and providing for an inspector 
of these mines, whose ofhce was to be under the jurisdiction of the Department of 
Mines and Minerals. Upon the taking effect of this law, the Department created a 
division known as the Division of Fluorspar Inspection and Edward S. Smith was 
appointed Inspector. 

Evan D. John, the first Director of the Department, served from July 1, 1917, 
to the date of his death, November 29, 1918. Joseph C. Thompson was appointed 
director early in December, 1918, and served until April 12, 1920, when he was called 
by death. Soon after the death of Mr. Thompson, Martin Bolt, Assistant Director 
was named acting Director and served in that capacity until July 20 of that year, 
when Governor Lowden appointed Robert M. Medill, who served during the remain- 
der of Governor Lowden's term and was reappointed by Governor Small and held 
the position till December, 1923, when he resigned. Martin Bolt, who had served 
as Assistant Director from July 1, 1917, when the law creating the department 
went into effect, was appointed Director and assumed the duties of the position on 
December 1, 1923, and Mr. A. D. Lewis was appointed Assistant Director to succeed 
Mr. Bolt.

MINE DISASTERS 



The first great disaster that marred the annals of coal mining in this State 
occurred on the morning of the 16th of February, 1883, at Braidwood, Will County, 
in which 69 men lost their lives. This mine, known as the Diamond Mine, the 
property of the Wilmington Coal Mining and Manufacturing Company, had been 
located in a very level and low territory, said to cover about 10 square miles. This 
land was so flat that natural drainage was impossible, and all accumulations of 
water would He upon the surface until absorbed or evaporated. The coal seam was 
thin and near the surface, and, being worked on the long-wah system, as fast as the 
mineral was removed the roof came down and made a loose, irregular break all along 
the face of the workings. At this date, owing to a general thaw accompanied by 
rains, the entire surface for miles around was covered with water from 1 to_3 feet 
deep. The water breaking through, flooding and filling the workings, cutting off 
all means of escape by the main shaft, then the escapement shaft, and then, by the 
pressure of its own weight, sealing the doors, which had been set across the roadway 
for the purpose of directing and controlling the currents of air. Those who escaped 
had their most dreadful struggle with these doors, and the location at which the 
bodies of twenty-two others were found indicate that they may have struggled in 
vain to open these barriers to safety. 

A fuller account of this dreadful catastrophe may be found in the 1883 coal 
report, page 97. . 

The year 1883 was marred by another disaster in which 10 men lost their lives. 
This was the result of an explosion presumably of gas in the Coulterville Coal Com- 
pany's mine, Coulterville, Randolph County. The history of this explosion has not 
been preserved, and merely the mention of the fact is all that can be given here. 

For the next 19 years the State was exempt from any calamity resulting in the 
death of more than two men at one time. The average number of fatalities for these 
19 years was 61, the number ranging from 39 to 99. During the fiscal year 1903, 
however, five disasters occurred in which 29 men lost their lives. These disasters 
are summarized as follows: Oct. 13, 1902, a blast explosion in Victor Coal Company's 
mine. Pawnee, Sangamon County, three killed; Feb. 25, 1900, a blast explosion in 
Auburn and Alton Coal Company's mine. Auburn, Sangamon County, killed three 
men; March 13, 15, and 16, 1903, four gas explosions occurred in Cardiff Coal Com- 
pany's mine, Cardiff, Livingston County, which resulted in the death of nine men; 
March 23, 1903, a blast explosion in the mine of the Athens Coal Company, Athens, 
Menard County, killed six men; March 31, 1903, a blast explosion in Sandoval Coal 
company's mine, Sandoval, Marion County, killed eight men. 

On May 11, 1904, occurred a terrific explosion of powder in the mine of the Big 
Muddy Coal and Iron Company, Herrin, Williamson County, which resulted in the 
death of ten men and the serious injury of 12 others. The cause of this explosion is 
not fully known, but it would seem that proper precaution had not been taken in 
sending powder into the mine, and the driver of the car containing six kegs ran into 
a live wire which was down and the powder became ignited. 

The fatalities from mine disasters during the fiscal year 1905 surpassed by far 
that of any previous year, with the exception of 1883. This year three distinct 
calamities occurred resulting in a loss of 60 lives. On December 9, 1904, four men 
were killed as a result of a blown-out shot in the mine of the Eldorado Coal Company, 
Eldorado, Saline County. Owing to the fact that the Inspector of this District, 
William Adkinson, lost his hfe the following x^pril in the explosion at Zeigler, a 
detailed report of this accident was not made to this office, hence only a mention of 
the fact can be recorded here. 

January 16, 1905, shortly after noon, a fire broke out in No. 1 mine of the Deca- 
tur Coal Company, Decatur, Macon County, which resulted in the death of six men. 
The fire was discovered in the mule stable and undoubtedly was caused by.sparks from a 



326 

pipe or a partially consumed cigarette. At the time the fire was discovered about 
60 men were in the rnine, but the prompt action of the mine manager in sending 
runners to give warning all escaped but the six unfortunates referred to above. 
The alarm was immediately sent to the city fire department, which responded prompt- 
ly, but, owing to the location of the fire so far underground, considerable time was 
consumed in preparing to reach it. By hard work the fire was brought under control, 
several men were rescued and all the bodies recovered. 

On the morning of April 3, 1905, an explosion of gas occurred in the mine of the 
Zeigler Coal Company, Zeigler, Franklin County, resulting in the death of 50 men, 
including that of State Inspector, William Adkinson, who, in a short time, had 
arrived on the scene and led the first rescuing party into the mine and while bravely 
forcing his way in search of those whom he might rescue, stepped for a moment out 
of the line of the air current, was seized by the deadly afterdamp and died before his 
companions could reach him. 

Immediately after being informed of the explosion, Governor Deneen summoned 
the state inspectors, and the members of the Mining Board and requested them to 
proceed at once to Zeigler, make a careful and thorough examination of the premises 
and cause of the explosion, and report their findings to him. After making two 
visits this commission submitted its report. In order to fully ascertain all the facts, 
the Governor, a few days later, delegated James Taylor, of Peoria, and John G. 
Massie, of Belleville, men of ability and long experience in mining affairs, to supple- 
ment the woi'k of the others, each to make a separate investigation and report. The 
reports made by the different investigators are substantially the same and all agree 
in attributing the cause of the disaster to an explosion of gas. The reports of all 
these investigations may be found in full in the Annual Coal Report for 1905. 

December 22, 1906, a very deplorable accident occurred at the Breese- Trenton 
Mining Company's mine, Breese, CHnton County. Six men got on the cage to go 
to their working places to begin the day's work, when, from some cause not given, the 
cage fell down the shaft 300 feet, killing all the men almost instantly, breaking legs, 
arms, and crushing their bodies in a horrible manner. 

On the morning of January 29, 1907, an explosion of thirty kegs of powder in 
the mine of the Johnston City and Big Muddy Coal and Mining Company, Johnston 
City, Williamson County, resulted in the death of seven men. The cause of the 
explosion, in the opinion of the State Inspector, was due to the rough handling ofthe 
powder by the men while unloading it from the car and placing it at convenient 
points where the drivers would pick it up and distribute it to different places in the 
mine. 

September 7, 1907, an explosion of gas occurred in No. 11 nime of the Bering 
Coal Company, West Frankfort, Franklin County. The night shift was putting 
in a stopping to close a body of gas; the stopping was nearly completed, causing the 
gas to back up against the decreasing current of air, when it was ignited by the lamp 
of one of the workmen. Twenty-two men were burned, of which four died almost 
instantly. 

The fiscal year beginning July 1, 1908, witnessed seven explosions, in which a 
total of 46 men lost their lives. October 6, 1908, a powder explosion in the Harrisburg 
and Southern Coal Company's mine, Grayson, Saline County, burned three men so 
badly that they died the following day. The explosion was caused by igniting a 
piece of fuse and inserting it into a keg of powder, which was thought to be empty, 
exploding it and two other kegs partly filled. 

November 5, 1908, an explosion of gas at the W. P. Rend Colliery Company's 
mine. Rend City, Franklin County, killed four shot firers. It was very fprtunate 
that no other men were in the mine at the time, as the explosion was so terrific that 
the cages were wrecked, and several fires started in the mine. As soon as a thorough 
examination was possible. Governor Deneen ordered the ten State Inspectors and the 
Mining Board to make an investigation. On November 30 the report of this com- 
mission was made and may be found in full in the 1909 coal report. 

November 19, 1908, there was an explosion in the Benton Coal Company's mine 
at Benton, Franklin County. Six shot firers were in the mine at the time of the 
accident. Three of them escaped injury, but the other three were overcome by after- 
damp from shooting "dead holes". 

December 12, 1908, another explosion occurred in the W. P. Rend Colliery 
Company's mine from the same cause as that reported for the explosion of November 
5. Three shot firers were killed. 



327 

January 10, 1909, an explosion of gas in the Zeigler Coal Company's mine, 
Zeigler, Franklin County, killed 26 men, all who were in the mine at that time except 
one. The report of this disaster is too long to be inserted in full here, but ma}'- be 
found in the 1909 coal report pages 373, 374. However, a few extracts from this 
report made by the State Inspector for the district, Mr. W. S. Burris, may be of 
interest and are given in substance as follows: On the night of Oct. 4, 1908, a trap 
door, located about 1,200 feet from the shaft bottom, caught fire, and, although the 
management fought all night, by seven o'clock next morning had extended about 900 
feet toward the bottom of the shaft, burning out one of the main overcasts and ren- 
dering it necessary to seal up both shafts or have one of them consumed by the fire. 
In conference with the General Manager and Mine Superintendent it was agreed 
that the mine should be sealed for not less than 90 days, believing that with the air 
shut off the fire would be extinguished. I was called back to the mine on the day 
the explosion took place, January 10, and found that the management had failed to 
keep the mine sealed. On the 9th, 27 men were in the mine cleaning up falls, build- 
ing brattices and driving out gas that had accumulated. This gas passed directly 
over the place where the fire of Nov. 4 had originated, and from the evidence I believe 
that the air had rekindled the fire and ignited the gas as it passed out over it, causing 
the explosion. The mine was again sealed for 21 days, but evidently the fire had 
not been extinguished, for on February 9 another explosion took place, caused by a 
body of gas coming in contact with the fire. Sixteen men were in the mine at the 
time and three of them were killed. 

On the night of February 16, 1909, there was an explosion in the Bering Coal 
Company's mine, West Frankfort, Franklin County. This explosion occurred 
about 5 p. m. while four shot firers were firing shots, and seems to have been caused 
by a windy shot igniting carbon monoxide gas, which started fires in the mine, and 
these formed a mixture that exploded at intervals of about two hours, rendering 
rescue work impossible. The mine was completely sealed and remained sealed 120 
days. At the end of that time an investigation was made and finding that the mine 
was still on fire it was again sealed and the mine flooded. Four men lost their lives 
in this explosion. 

THE CHERRY MINE DISASTER. 

The complete report of this great disaster will be found in the Annual Coal 
Report for 1910, pages 240 to 247. Only a brief resume can be given here. 

From the most reliable reports obtained at the mine, the fire commenced about 
1.30 p. m. on Saturday, November 13, 1909, in the St. Paul Coal Company's No. 2 
mine. Cherry, Bureau County. On that date a pit car containing five or six bales 
of hay was sent into the mine. This car was placed near, probably directly under a 
blazing torch placed there to give light to the cagers. The hay is thought to have 
been set on fire by the torch. If immediate steps had been taken to do so, the fire 
could have been extinguished easily. The car of burning hay, however, seems to 
have been pushed around from one position to another in an air current having a 
velocity of about 700 feet per minute, until it had fired the overhead timbers. The 
car was finally pushed into the shaft opening and fell into the sump, but by this time 
the heavy pine timbers were burning and could not be reached because of the dense 
smoke; the control of the fire was lost and the result was the worst mine disaster of 
modern times, 256 men losing their hves. On Saturday, Nov. 20, an exploring party 
found twenty-one men alive, they were brought to the surface and all but one 
recovered. "The imprisoned men had built stoppings, thereby shutting out the foul 
gases from the fire, life having been sustained by the purer air in the enclosed space. 
One of these rescued men, Walter A. Waite, has been in the State service, in the 
capacity of State Inspector of mines, for a number of years. It was not until about 
Oct. 10, 1910, that the cleaning and repairing of the mine had progressed sufficiently 
to allow the resumption of operations. 

December 23, 1909, an explosion of gas in mine "A" of the Chicago and Carter- 
ville Coal Company, Hcrrin, Williamson County, resulted in the death of eight men. 
Going into the entries, which had been pronounced free from gas, with an open light, 
the gas was ignited and the explosion resulted. 

December 27, 1909, four shot firers were killed in No. 5 mine, Centralia Coal 
Company, Centralia, Marion County. The cause of this accident was an explosion 
of gas, generated by the excessive use of blasting powder. 

November 11, 1910, there was a gas explosion in the Shoal Creek Coal Company's 



328 

mine, Panama, Montgomery County, resulting in the death of six men, injury by 
afterdamp to eleven, and imperiling the lives of 386 other employees. Two miners 
went into the mine to secure the tools of one who had been discharged, and, although 
cautioned not to go into a certain entry because of gas there, they went with open 
light and the explosion resulted. 

February 13, 1911, a deplorable accident occurred at the No. 3 mine of the Saline 
County Coal Company, Harrisburg, in which four men lost their lives. This was a 
new mine, the shaft had just been sunk and the sinking buckets were still in use. 
The afternoon shift were timbering and had come on top to eat supper. Returning 
to their work, the men were being lowered in the sinking bucket to the platform, 
about 80 feet down the shaft; one load having been landed, three men got in the 
bucket ready to be lowered. The top man noticed that the safety link attached to 
the hook which fastened the rope to the bucket was not in place and called the atten- 
tion of the men to the fact, when one of them said, " Let it go at that." The top man 
then gave the signal to lower. Two men were on one side of the bucket and one on 
the other, which caused it to tip. The hook became detached from the rope and the 
men and bucket were precipitated to the platform, killing them and one other who 
had preceded them. 

October 23, 1911, eight men lost their lives in O'Gara Coal Company's mine. No. 
9, Harrisburg, Saline County. This company was operating mines No. 9 and No. 4, 
which were connected at the face of the main north entry of mine No. 9. Number 4 
mine had been closed for repairs in the main shaft and it seems that the section of 
this mine nearest number 9 mine had not been sufficiently ventilated. These men 
were working near the connection of these mines when an explosion occurred, blowing 
the door down between the two mines, allowing afterdamp to rush onto them, causing 
their death by suffocation. 

January 15, 1913, an explosion caused by firing two dead holes in Crescent Coal 
Company's mine, Peoria, resulted in the death of three men, two of them shot firers. 
the other a miner, who were overcome by afterdamp caused by the explosion. 

Four men were killed in Eldorado Coal and Mining Company's mine, Eldorado, 
Saline County, by an explosion of gas. These men had just arrived at their working 
places when they came in contact with an accumulation of gas, which ignited and 
resulted in their death. Whether or not the mine had been examined that morning 
and this particular place marked dangerous is not disclosed in the report. Several 
others injured, two of whom were thought to be dead when brought to the parting, 
but were resuscitated by patient work of more than half an hour. Soon after these 
men revived it was found that three of the rescue party, who had rushed into the 
affected portion of the mine, were down from the effects of noxious gases. Again 
the pulmotors were brought into use and it was only through the efficient work of 
the men in charge that their lives were saved. This accident occurred February 19, 
1913. 

October 27, 1914, occurred a very disastrous explosion of gas in the Franklin 
Coal and Coke Company's No. 1 mine at Royalton, Franklin County, in which 52 
lives were lost. There is no record of the cause of this disaster on file in this Depart- 
ment save the mere mention of the fact, found in the 1915 Coal Report, and the 
verdict of the coroner's jury, which was the same for each one, and is as follows: 
"Deceased came to his death as the result of an explosion in the mine at about 7:25 
a. m., October 27, A. D. 1914." 

April 5, 1915, an explosion occurred in the Shoal Creek Coal Company's mine 
at Panama, Montgomery County, which resulted in the death of the eleven men. 
The verdict of the coroner's jury in each case was: "Deceased came to his death on 
the 5th day of April, 1915, at or about the hour of 7 o'clock, a. m., in the Shoal Creek 
Coal Company's mine. No. 1, Panama, Illinois, from effects of an explosion and the 
afterdamp following same." 

July 27, 1915, an explosion of gas in United Coal Company's mine No. 1, Chris- 
topher, Franklin County, resulting in the death of eight men. 

December 8, 1916, a fire broke out in Johnston City Coal Company's mine, 
Johnston City, Williamson County, in which three men lost their lives by being 
overcome by fumes and smoke. 

May 12, 1917, an explosion of gas in Saline County Coal Company's mine, 
Grayson, Saline County, killed four men. 

June 2, 1917, an explosion of gas in W. P. Rend Coal and Coke Company's mine, 
Herrin, Williamson County, killed nine men. 



329 

September 17, 1917, five men were killed in the Chicago, Wilmington and Frank- 
lin Coal Company's mine. Orient, Franklin County. These men were on the cage 
when the counterbalance left the guides, allowing the cage to fall to the bottom. 

November 29, 1917, an explosion at No. 11 mine of the Old Ben Coal Corpora- 
tion, Christopher, Franklin County, resulted in the death of 17 men. A full report 
of this explosion may be found in the 1917 Coal Report, pages 238-243. 

December 5 and 6, 1917, a series of gas explosions in Bell and ZoUer Coal Com- 
pany's mine, Zeigler, Franklin County, resulted in the death of three men. 

February 23, 1917, an explosion of dust in Citizen's Coal Company's mine "A", 
Springfield, Sangamon County, killed four men. These men were working night 
shift and about 4 o'clock a. m. went into a room to place a car on the track and to 
fire three shots that had been left by the shot firers. They completed this work and 
had gone about 1,000 feet in the entry when the shots exploded causing the explosion 
of dust. 

February 22, 1918, an explosion of 26 kegs of powder, which had been let down 
into the mine and allowed to stand on the switch track while the power was on, 
occurred in the Royal mine of Chicago, Wilmington and Franklin Coal Company, 
Virden, Macoupin County, which resulted in the death of four men. 

June 29, 1918, three men had opened up a sealed section of mine No. 8, O'Gara 
Coal Company, Eldorado, Saline County, and were overcome by noxious gases, not 
having a sufficient amount of oxygen in their helmets, and suffocated. 

September 28, 1918, an explosion of gas in Franklin Coal and Coke Company's 
mine, Royalton, Franklin County, resulted in the death of 21 men. These men 
were trying to seal a fire when the gas ignited killing 20 instantly, and one died 24 
hours later. 

May 12, 1919, an explosion, caused by a windy shot, occurred in Marion County 
Coal Company's mine, Centralia, Marion County, resulting in the death of four 
shot firers. 

June 6, 1919, three men lost their lives in Old Ben Coal Corporation No. 10 
mine, Christopher Franklin County, as a result of an explosion of gas. 

February' 14, 1921, a gas explosion in No. 8 mine, O'Gara Coal Company, 
Eldorado, Saline County, killed three men. 

February 23, 1921, three shot firers were killed as a result of a windy shot, in 
Centralia Coal Company's mine, Centralia, Marion County. 

February 23, 1921, a fire broke out in the Union Colliery Company's Mine, 
Dowell, Jackson County, resulting in the death of seven men 'oy suffocation. 

August 31, 1921, a gas explosion occurred in Harrisburg Colliery Company's 
Harco mine, Harco, Saline County, in which 12 men lost their lives. 

Februar}^ 21, 1922, three shot firers received injuries, which resulted in death 
a few days later, from a shot explosion in Springfield District Coal Compnay's No. 
58, mine, Taylorville, Christian County. 

September 29, 1922, an explosion occurred in Consolidated Coal Company's 
Lake Creek mine which resulted in the death of five men. It was at first thought 
and so reported that this was a powder explosion, but later investigation, based on 
new evidence, shows clearly, in the opinion of the State Inspector, that the primary 
cause was an explosion of gas. 

December 6, 1923, three men were drowned in the Radium mine of the Aluminum 
Ore Company, near Belleville. The machine cut through into an old mine filled with 
water, allowing the water to rush in with such force that the men had no time to 
escape. 

January 25, 1924, an explosion of gas in Crerar-Chnch Coal Company's McClin- 
tock mine, Johnston City, killed 33 men. An investigation made by five State 
Inspectors of the Department revealed the fact that some men were at work removing 
track from a section of the mine which had been worked out. These rooms were on a 
"squeeze" and explosive gas had accumulated. The men removing track were using 
open lights when the gas was ignited, resulting in the death of 33 men and much 
damage to the property. 

As may be seen from the tabulation shown below, the disasters in which three 
men or more lost their lives in the coal mines of the State since 1883, the date of the 
first authentic record on the subject, number 52, with a total loss of 754 lives, an 
average of 14.5 for each disaster.

April 15, 1924— Pratt Bros. Coal Co., Jeffrev Mine, Herrin. 
May 27, 1924— C. W. & F. Coal Co., Mine ""A", Herrin. 

The Mine Rescue Station at Eldorado received two calls during the year. 

Both calls came from Mine No. 1 of the Wasson Coal Co. 

An explosion accurred on July 12, 1923, in which two men lost their lives and 
their bodies were recovered by the Mine Rescue team from the above named station 
after some very difficult work. A small fire at the mine was responsible for the 
second call, but there were no serious results from the same. 

During the period covered by this report 1918 persons were trained in First Aid 
and Mine Rescue work, showing a large increase over the previous year. 

This division has had the best kind of cooperation from the United States 
Bureau of Mines during the year, and we hope for a continuance of this cooperation. 

The work is on a very satisfactory basis.

REPORT OF DIVISION OF ECONOMIC INVESTIGATION 



Martin Bolt, Director, 

Department of Mines and Minerals. 

Sir : I have the honor to submit herewith the sixth annual report of this Division, 
which is along the same lines as the preceding reports. 

During the year five fatal and 175 non-fatal accidents occurred in and about the 
different plants under the jurisdiction of this Division. The data concerning the 
fataUties follows: 

October 16, 1923, Charles Walker, pumper, age 44 years, married, was killed 
at the well of The Ohio Oil Company in Bridgeport Township, Lawrence County. 
Deceased went into the accumulating tank pit and had neglected to close the gate 
at the end of the gas line, allowing the gas to flow back through the valve. He was 
overcome by breathing this gas. He leaves a widow. 

January 30, 1924, August Schultz, Sr., laborer, age 58 years, married, was 
instantly killed by a piece of frozen clay which fell on him at the plant of Illinois 
Brick Co., Bernice, Cook County. He leaves a widow and one child. 

February 15, 1924, Joseph Spehar, laborer, age 35 years, married, while working 
at the quarry of the Chicago Union Lime Works, was struck by a stone rolling from 
the ledge, knocked into the quarry and killed. He leaves a widow and three children. 

May 14, 1924, Albert Riser, pumper, age 38 years, married, was killed by a 
bursting anchor pipe at the well of The Ohio Oil Company in Oblong Township, 
Crawford County. He leaves a widow and three children. 

June 7, 1924, Antonio Moro, foreman, age 52 years, married, was struck by a 
stone hurled by a blast at the East St. Louis Stone Company's quarry and instantly 
killed. He leaves a widow. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. L. Morgan, Investigator, 
Greenville.
