GENZBERGER & CO. 5 NORTH MAIN STREET, HELENA DANGIERS OF COAL MINING. In my last choke-damp, after-damp and azote as dangerous elements in coal mining were briefly considered, and some infor mation was promised respecting the ex plosive properties of coal dust in mines. While we do not know all the conditions in which coal duet produces explosions in mines, or aids in producing them, it is well settled that coal dust has noted an im portant part in the largest number of the most disastrous explosions of the last few years, or since this subject has been under investigation in this country and Europe. Various operations in coal mines do con stantly reduce portions of the coal to so fine a powder that it floats in the air of the mine. Drilling, breaking and handling the coal makes coal dust; so also the trampine of men and animals and the wheels of cars are constantly reducing coal to the dust that floats in the air and becomes the most dangerous element in coal mines, for when such coal dust is dry and mixed with the air in any considerable portions, explosions of the most disastrous nature may be ex peoted. Until late years, it had been believed that coal dust and air would not form an explo sive mixture; but it is now known that pure coal dust and pure air will form a very powerful and dangerous explosive. But it is very evident and still firmly believed that small quantities of fire-damp added to a mixture of air and coal dust will render its ignition more easy, and will greatly in crease its destructive power. It is also well established that a mixture of air and fire damp will not explode with any dangerous force unless the proportion of fire-damp be more than five per cent, and less than twenty per cent. But the addition of dry coal dust to such non-explosive mixtures will render them most dangerous explosives. In fact, it is now generally believed among coal mining experts that the larger number of the disastrous explosions in the coal mines of the world, has been caused by the presence of dry coal dust. While it is true that the dust from some coals are highly explosive when mixed with air alone, the dust from other coals form mixtures far less explosive, and the dust from still other coals will not form explo sive mixtures with air alone. Unfortunate ly we have as yet no tests by which we canl determine whether any given coal will yield an explosive dust save by actual ex periment. But it should never be forgotten that a dust, which will not explode in pure air alone, is rendered highly explosive by the addition of very small quantities of fire damp. As little as '1.5 per cent of fire-damp will render a non-explosive mixture of dust and air highly explosive: and on the other hand a small proportion of non explosive coal dust will render a non explosive mixture of fire-damp and air highly explosive. In fact there appears to be such an afllnity between fire-damp and coal dust that their union becomes extreme ly dangerous. It has been fully established that coal dust is explosive in proportion to its dry ness. Hence damp and wet mines are sel dom troubled with coal dust; and when it does appear in such mines the moisture soon renders it harmless or lays it alto gether. It is also well known that an explosion in which coal-dust forms any considerable element causes greater heat than an explo sion produced by fire.damp and air alone. Hence an explosion of coal dust is more likely to set fire to the mine and to pro duos more painful injuries to the men and ninials in the mine, and produce more dangerous and troublesome after-damps. The miners will scarcely need any special means of detecting the presence of coal dust save what his lamp and his own senses supply.
