CHIEF INSPECTOR NORWOOD
NOW ON THE SCENE
Joo HoJlowoll's body was found
this morning and brough to tbo sur
face. The bodies of two of tho no
gro minors woro located during tho
night and brought out this morning,
but woro not fully identified, so that
the name of tho miner not yot found
cannot bo stated.
Sudden and urgent calls by tele
phone from Madlsonvdlo, shortly be
fore 7:80 o'clock Sunday evening an
nounced to Earlington mining men
the disastrous explosion that had
just ocoured in the mine of the Ooil
Coal Company located northeast of
that place on the new It. & N. cut
off. ThoB. Long, assistant mine In
spector, was notified and hurriedly
prepared his oxygen helmets and
other rescue apparatus for the trip
to the scene, though there was
scarcely a hope that any of the Ave
men who were In the mine could
have survived the explosion. Frank
D. Hash caught a train quickly and
went to the mine, where he spent
the night assisting in the work of
getting air down the shaft by use of
the steam jet and the other work
undertaken by the inspector and
mining men present.
The men who lost thoir lives wore:
Joseph Hollowell, night , boBS,
Chas. New, "
Will Hughes "
Leslie Petree, "
The explosion occured just after
these men had reached the bottom
of the shaft for their night work.
The body of Will Hughes waB blown
from the bottom of the Bhaft and
landed on the roof of the weigh
bouse in the pit-head building well
above the surface, a distance of
more than 300 feet from the bottom.
Ladders In the air shaft manway
were torn away for about half the
distance from the bottom and the
building at the head of the air Bhaft
was blown to pieces and scattered
about, the bulk of it having been
blown over the top of a sycamore
tree, breaking limbs off tho tree in
Its descent. TIiob. Peyton, of this
place, and H. B. Tweedle, of Vic

throughout tbo night, Tweedle
being tho first to doscond the airshaf t
with alight to toBt the air and feel
his way toward tho bottom. At the
bottom of the slxtoenth ladder ho
decendeU he found tho lower lad
ders had been displaced by tho ox
plosion and could go no further.
Yesterday morning Thos. Long, of
this place, and Huw Jones, of Cen
tral City, went as far down the Bhaft
as the debris would allow, finding
that the Bhaft was filled with wreck
ago to tho depth of porjiaps 15 or 20
feet. The conditions were such thfet
mining men oxpreBsod the belief
that the clearing of the Bnaft would
be difficult and slow, but every ef
fort would be made to recover tho
bodies of the victims as soon as

WOUNDED BOY NOW IN HOSPITAL
A mcBt deplorable affair occured
here late Saturday night when a lot
of boys, all good friends and chums
when sober, imbibed enough beer
and whiskey to make Boine of them
quarrelsome. The two Morgan boyB
fgnatiuB and Vincent, Harvey Par
ker and Pote Davis Jr., are all com
panions and friendu, who buut, fish
nnd run together constantly, and
the sole cause of the horrible affair
was too much of that vile Btuff
shipped into Earlington by the sa
loon keepers of EvanBville. The
trouble started over some trivial
thing that would have passed off
with a laugh had the boys been so
ber, but one word brought on anoth
er until angry wordB became blows
and the Hpshut of it was that Pete
Jr., shot and seriously wounded his
besfcfrlerid. The wounded boy is
