CAN ACCIDENTS BE -.
AVOIDED IN MINES
Under the above caption the Mto
lng and Scientific Press of San Fran
cisco, treats of a subject that is forc
ed to our attention almost every da
by the hoisting to the surface in some
mining town of a cold and lifeless
body, the result of an, explosion, the
crumbling of timbers or a broken
cable. On this subject the Mining and
Scientific Press has the following:
"Without doubt many of the acci
dents which occur in metal mines
might be avoided if the miners them
selves were more cautious, but to the
miner surrounded constantly by dan
ger, it becomes a mere incident to
his calling and he is often careless
through immunity from injury. Few
men are injured in mines where the
danger is apparent, for then the work
man is alert and takes the necessary
steps to avoid injury. Men are us
ually injured in some new and unex
pected manner, and yet the accident
might usually have been avoided.
There are, however, some kinds of
danger that can only be avoided by
closing down the mine. Among the
hidden menaces which cannot be de
tected until too late are those of miss
ed "cut-olt" holes in the bottom' of a
wet shaft where sinking is in prog
ress. The men drill a round of holes
charge them with nitro powder, often
standing above their knees in water,
before the work of loading is com
pleted. The fuses are spitted and
the men are drawn up the shaft.
iWten the fUi'Ve and gas hove been
sufficiently dissipated, they or the men
of the next shift proceed to clean up.
'All broken rock Is shovelled up and
loose rock is picked and gadded out.
The men search as carefully as pos
sible for missed holes. It is the prac
tice everywhere for men changing
shift to make known to the succeed
ing shift the number of holes drilled
and spit, and the number of reports
counted upon blasting. It is no un
common thing for two or more holes
"to go at once, though sometimes a dis
tinct report is heard for every hole.
Some holes may be cut off, by one
exploding a moment sooner than the
next hole, and the primer and a por
tion of the powder in the cut oft hole
explodes, leaving a quantity of powder
in the bottom of the hole that had its
upper portion cut off. This is the ele
ment of greatest danger to the shaft
miner and its existence is not only
unknown, but usually not suspected".
He proceeds to drill, possibly for sev
eral hours, cutting a number of holes
without mishap, when suddenly the
drill strikes the fatal "cut off" hole
and every miner knows the result.
How an accident of this kind can be
avoided it is difficult to say. If the
men spend several hours after each
round of holes, in searching for cut
off and missed shots, the cost of shaft
sinking would become prohibitory,
and mining would soon cease.
The conditions described here actu
ally occurred not long since in the Lin
coln shaft, Amador county, Cal., and
fortunately are of rare occurrence;
but, looking at the situation from a
business standpoint, the miner must
take some risks.
until Thursday, when It was definitely
announced that the train would reach
Blsbee Sunday afternoon. This fact
has delayed any previous action by
our citizens, but now that the move
ment is on foot the men who have the
arrangements in hand are determined
to make the reception one of the
pleasant recollections of the trip.
The mentwho compose the excursion
party are among the most substan
tial citizens or El Paso. They are
comiDg on a friendly visit and to bet
ter acquaint themselves with the won
derful resources and possibilities of
this.sectlon. The visit is destinetLjto
establish frendly relatons between
the richest mineral district in the
southwest and the natural supply cen
ter therefor. Ihe Review heartily
endorses the action of the business
men in arranging for a proper recep
tion for our visitors.
THE CORRECT SIDE
The people of Arizona feel sore over
the visit of the Beveridge senatorial
committee to the territory, in view of
the learned and confident way in
which Mr. Beveridge has written his
report, on the basis of personal obser
vations, against the admission of Ari-
slnce the adjournment "of congress,
and some of the criticisms by our ex
changes, of Senators Beveridge, Bard
and others opposed to the admission
of Arizona and New Mexico, are "hot
stuff." Candidly, we think that the
Intemperate language usd by some
of the champions of the territories is
very prejudicial to the cause of state
hood. Globe Silver Belt.
The Arizona legislature will meet
in a few weeks. Tbe democrats will
control both branches. The people
will expect that the platform pledges
of the democratic party will be writ
ten in the statute book and must not
be disappointed. Enterprise.
The enemies of Senator Quay are
spreading a report that .he is not seri
ous in his fight for statehood and that
he will "lay down" after making a
bluff. This is not his method. He
never "fays down," he is not. a quitter,
and he never goes into a contest but
with the expectation of winning.
With those who are spreading this re
port the wish is evidently father to the
thought. Phoenix Enterprise.
