SIX MINERS ARE

few hours later in the hospital, from the
injuries he received,.
In their anxiety to reach, the surface
the workmen jumped 'on the cage, upon
which dull steel was being taken to the
surface. It is presumed that in their
crowding they dislodged the steel shafts
from the box in which they were held,
and they caught in the wall plates on the
side, the ends whirling with terrific
force among the men on the cage, clear
ing the deck of the miners, fairly minc
ing their bodies as the steel bounded
back and forth, and sweeping them into
the sump, 1400 feet below. Charles
Green, station tender, finally was hurled
from the upper deek -of the 'cage to the
lower level by the impact when the
brakes -were applied and was decapitated,
as were, all--the other miners with the
