Prolonging the Life ,
Of Mine Props.
1 he following relative to preserv
ing mining props may be taken ad
vantage of in tho construction of
idges and other buildings the ma
terial cf which is liable to decay.
One of the biggest expenses con
nected with coal mining is found in
the mine timbers used to support the
various gangways. Their destruc
tion by decay and breaking costs
many hundreds of thousands of dollars
annually and in sctne cases the loss
of human life. Mine operators are
fully familiar with these losses. They
know also that the seasomog and
the preservative treatment of timbe
aud to its life iu service in the mine
But it has only recently been estab
lished by experiment that effective
seasoning and treating with creosote
carbo'.inium, and zinc chloride as wood
preservatives can be secured at
cost se slight in proportion to the
greatly increased life of the props as
to effect a material saving. The ex
periment carried on during the past
few jnonths by the Philadelphia and
Reading Coal and Iron Company, at
its collieries near Pottsville, Pa
under the direction of a member i
the Forest Service, has resulted i
an economy which demonstrates that
the preservation of mine props can
be put on a firm commercial casis,
In the loss of mine timbers at least
(50 per cent are destroyed by decay
and the remainder by crush. The
percentage charged to decay should
be even higher, because many of the
timbers which break have already
been weakened by decay. Decay
probably the cause of 75 per cent of
all failures in mines timbers.
Decay in props is principally caused
by wood-destroying fungi. Warm
nuiist air, ,toaether with certain
gases always found in mines, greatly
favors ths development of these fun
gi. Ventilation Is an enormous
factor. Timber iu the vicinity of
shafts and slopes where there 1
abundance of fresh air lasts longc
than that deeper in the mines. The
variation of moisture End tempera
ture within mines is so wide that
timbers may decay in eight months
or may last several years. Timbew
that are constantly wet or constant
ly dry last longer than these subject
ed to an alternation of theso condi
Insects play a very considerable
vrt in tfle dngtructiop of mine tim
bers. Munv forms arc found, includ-
ng buck borers, ants, and timber
worms, lheir presence may be due
to allowing litjs to lie impeded for a
nsidi'i'iihli' time after felling. In
sect infetel timber is frequently
verlookt by tho inspectors and
Uowed to go inside 'he mines. An'.S
nd cerambycid borers tn.iy attack
props after they go in the mine.
There decay spreads rnpidlv, and the
estructive work of the insects ap
pears to be in no way affected by the
luck of light or by presence of gases.
Creosote and carbolinium are elTec-
ve insecticides and stop the work
of the wood -borers.
A mine prop is composed of three
pariN, which together form a "set"
two uprights, called legs, across
the top of which is a crosspipce,
called v collar. After a prop is de
cayed sufficiently to necessitate its
removal, it is rplaceu. At times
when only one leg is decayed, that
leg alone is removed and replaced by
a new one. Frequently, howover,
the wholo set is replaced, and this
nvolves the destruction rf all the
ogs by sawing them in two to remove
Various materials and method, for
preservative treatment have been
tried, and ulfrto the present, time all
have proved efficient Only tune
will show which are tin most satis
factory from the practical point ol
view. Applied with a brush, creosote
and carbolinium tve an excellent
penetration in solid wood, frequently
averaging from one-fourth to one-
half an inch. The amount of oil that
seasoned loblolly pine takes from a
brush application is surprising, es
pecially in the end grain, i little
d'fference in penetration has as yet
bren noted between ' creosote and
carbolinium. tho the latter seems
better on absolutely green timber
All brush treatments were applied
hot and in two coats. Tho second
coat absorbed prastically as much
oil as the first.
Open-tai'k treatment has succeed
ed beyond all expectations. This
consists of an immersion of the tim
bers for several hours iu preservative
and then allowing . them to cool to
atmospheric temperature. While the
feasibility of the open-tank treatmen
has been demonstrated, there
much yet to be learned. The cos
may be reduced by shortening the
immersion and thus consuming less
fluid. A very heavy treatment is
not necessary. The best preserva
tivc approximately double the
serviceable life of railway ties and
may be counted on to do the same or
better for mine props. Seasoned
and treated props, which were put
in alongside of the old-style props
unseasoned and unpeeled, are as
sound as ever, while the others are
already showing signs of fungous
growth and decay.
Most of the props in the collieries
investigated are loblolly pine; Penn
sylvania pitch pine furnishes 20 pe
cent; black and red oak, 10 per cent
The loblolly pine comes from Mary
land and Virginia, the pitch pine
from north-central Pennsylvania
and the oak largely from New Jersey
and Pennsylvania. The experiments
have been mainly on loblolly pine
the wood most used.

District Attorney Devlin, requestin

This conference will be held at the

when the parties at interest will

The letter of District Attorney

"A. 'Altmann, President of the

the action taken by your Board ore

''Will you kindly designate a time
hen I may consult with you, or

When the attr ntion of President
Altmann of theBrard of Education
was called to that portion of the
