NINE 'EI1.IBLY BURNED Flames Shoot From the Mc.th cf the Workings Three Hundred Feet Into the Air-Many of the Victims Buried Under Great Masses of Debris-Sec ond Accident of tihe Kir,d to Occur at Dayton, Tenn. Dayton, Ten.x., .'y 23.-2.t the Richland mine of thl: Dayton Coal and Iron company, Le, ou:les from Day ton, a terrific expJLu;n of coal dust resulted in the L.I-th of 21 men, all white, and most of them married and with families. The explosicn e:as caused by what is known am-'; miners as a "blown blast." It is the custom of the miners to place bla-ts and fire them off at quitting time each afternoon, leaving the coal th-:i thrown down to be loaded and I::uled from the 'mine the next mornvt . The Richland mine is destitute cf water, and great volumes of fine pa~ icles of coal dust, invisible to the nahad eye, accumulate at the roof of the mine. This dust is subject to exrlosion if exposed to flames. A dynamite certridge was placed in po sition in one of the rooms for a blast and the miners started for the mouth of the mine. The blast did not ex plode as Intended, but instead a long flame shot out of the blast hole and igrited the accumulation c.f dust. In etantly a terrific explosion occurred and a seething mass of flames shot to the mouth of the mine and extended 300 feet into the oPen air, scorching the leaves from the nearby trees. There were 34 men In the mine at the time. Four of these escaped with slight injury. Twenty-one were killed and nine Were Terribly Burned, most of them fatally. The force of the explosion caused great masses of coal and slate to cave in from the roof of the mine and many of the fated miners were completely buried. Word quickly reached Dayton and rescue forces were at once organized and proceeded to the mine. One by one the blackened and horribly dis figured bodies were taken from the debris and carried to the mouth of the mine, where they were put on a locomotive and taken to Dayton. Scores of relatives and friends gath ered at the mouth of the mine and the shrieks of anguish as the bodies were removed were heartrending. The two undertaking establishments at Dayton were turned into morgues, where the mangled bodies were dressed and Irepared, for delivery to their families. All the men employed in this mine were residents of Dayton. 'Ihe Richland mine is the property of the Dayton Coal and Iron com nany, compos;ed of Glasgow capitalits.
