Bawson. X. M.., Oct. 21.? Fifty-four
bodies had 'been frecovored tonight
from the chambers Of Stag ('anon
mine Xo. 2, two deaths bad been ad
ded to the mine's total and govern
ment experts now in charge of the
rescue work concede that 20r bodies
arc still within the gas-tilled cham
bers. Thirty-six bodies have already
been buried, a union service for all
taking place late today. The work of
searching for bodies is still going on,
but hope that more of the entombed
miners will be rescued alive has been
The two deaths added to the list
today were those of .lames Lurdl and
William Poisi. members of a rescue
squad which entered tho mine in the
early morning. They did not return
and it was only after the exports of
the United states rescue car had
searched six hours that tho bodies
wore found. At the to ws of tho ad
ded deaths the men who had been do
ing tho rescue work refused '.a go back I
into the mine, but their places wore
taken by men from tho rescue car
Which had UCOn rushed from tho Kan
sas coal fields.
The work of rescue is going for
ward slowly under the leadership of
J. C. Roberts.
Simple Funeral Service.
The funeral service ovor the recov
ered bodies was simple. Father A. C.
Collier, of Springer, N. M . read the
service over the remains of iron of
tho Roman Catholic faith, while for
the others Uev. H. M. Shields, camp
chaplain, read the Episcopal! burial
Walter Douglas, general manager of
Phelps, Dodge & Co., which controls
tho Stag Canon Fuel company, to
night orprossed his opinion as to the
cause of the explosion. He said gas
is known to have existed in a vein
of coal just above the one In which
the company was working and that
has been known to enter the Stag
Canon mine on occasions when part
of the mine roof gave way. Mr, Doug
las believes some time Wednesday a
small part of tho roof dropped, per
mitting methane gas fire damp?to
penetrate into several rooms or cham
bers of tho mine, and :!i;:t fill Roqtiont
ly some person with an unprotected
lamp entered the pocket in which the
gas and dust had accntmulat
Chief Roberts, of the government
service, agrees with Mr. Douglas as to
tho probable cause, but said i: was
only a guess.
