BOO MEN ENTOMBED.
Terrible Disaster in Coal Minc on
Monongahela River.
Pittsburg, Dec. 6.-A terrific and
disastrous explosion occurred in
mines number 6 and 8 of the Consol
idated Coal Co.. of Monongahela,
W. Vu. A long distance telephoue
message to the Associated Press says
that the bodies of three hundred mi
ners have been recovered near the
mouth of mine No. 6. Superintend
ent Malone, of the mines, says that
there are at least five hundred men
entombed.
Mine No. ^6 is located on the east
side of the Monongahela river and
Mine No. 8 on the west side. .
How the explosion occurred simul
taneously In both mineo cannot be
explained at this time. All ls con
fusion at thc scene of the disaster,
and definite Information is meagre.
The explosion* Was heard for a dist
ance of eight; miles. It ls believed
that a majority of the entombed men
were killed.
It is fearod that the accident will
turn out to bo the worst in the his
tory of mining In this country. Su
perintendent Malone telephones that
500 men were in the mine at the
time and miners do not think any
could escape alive. Fans were start
ed at noon to clear out the foul air
and the rescuers may be expected to
reach the men this afternoon.
The very earth seemed to be rent
at the moment of the shock. Some
idea of the force of the explosion
may be gained from the fact that
props from the mine were not only
blown out of the entry, but were
hurled by the force of it clear across
the west fork of the Monongahela
river The wires are down, which
is the reason for the details of the
explosion being unobtainable.
It is now said that tho rescuers
will reach the Imprisoned men by 4
o'clock. Several men were practi
cally blown out of mine No. 6
through an air hole. Their escape
was miraculous. The best estimate
is 4 00 men In the mines.
