Umoxtowx, Pa, Aug. 6. The great
coke strike in this region, which cost so
many millions of dollars as well as a num
ber of lives, began ; Sunday, Feb. .15. On
that day the Grace mines of W. J. Rainey,
the Cleveland coke operator at Moyer, be
gan to burn. This was not unexpected, aa
the strikers had threatened beore that an
other week would not see Raiuey's works
moving. This was after the strike had
been declared, and Rainey, w.ho was the
only operator who was not stopped by the
strike, had continued to run up to Sun
day, the day of the Are
Strikers Set the Mine on Fire.
On this day the pumpers were supposed
to 1 on duty, but it seems that some one
had sent Antonio Xewak and his two sons
Slavs into the mines in the afternoon
to fix some track in room Xo. 9. The
pumper, Stewart A. Leach, was a strike
sympathizer, but during all strikes the
pumpers are allowed tododuty. After the
Slavs hail gone in. as wis su'jwa at the
coroner's iuqjest Tuesday, three strikers
were seen to enter by deputies then on
guard at the mines. The strikers were
seen to mm cut shortly before the fire
was discovered, but the unfortunate Slavs
were never seen alive again. All attempts
to get into the mine and put the fire out
proved futile, and were, after two days'
hard fight, aiiacdoned.
Foul Morder Dlsfotertd. "
Later two large fish ponds were turned
into the month of the mine aud the dig
ging were flooded au,l the fires extin
guished. It was necessary to let matters
rest several weeks in the mine. Then the
pumping out of the water was beuun, and
was finished only Monday. Tuesday cor
oner Holljert and Mine Inspector Duncan,
wit h a jury, visited and thoroughly searched
themiiies. .a short distance from the mouth
of the shaft the badly decomposed body of
Xewak. the father, was found with his
bead lying towards the mouth of the pit.
He was lying in a position to convince the
jury that he could not have fallen in that
position. Besides this, his clothes were
all torn on his back and his trousers were
pulled, showing that the victim hail been
dragged by some one bv the legs into the
The Boys' Bodies lloth MUM tig.
A short distance from the man's body
the right hmd of one of the boys was
found I:, wis ff at the wr:t and'lookpd
a thc.ugb it bf.d Iwen burned ctl. which is
likely, as tires had l.t-er. started in differ
ent parts ..f the mine. Up near the mouth
of the mine was found the hat of one
of the !-. No trace, of the bodies
could be found. The jury found while in
the mine that some wood braddUhing or
supports had been removed before the fire
had lieen kindled. It was proven that the
Xewaks were the victims of a foul murder;
that tLev had beeu followed into I he mine
killed. ;iiid dragged down the slope, after
wniou tne pump house and the mine were
fired in si-ve-al places. At a late hour
Tuesday nii;ht the coroner's jurv ad
journed without rendering a verdict. This
was done so that those connected with the
crime may be arrested before the verdict is
