Jot Imprisoned Miners In the Anthracite
Cost Field.

Smiion*. rk., ucl uoe workman
dead and four others doted Id tbe
mine, with *11 arenas* ol escape cat oB
sod lb* most dlaaatroas mine firs ever
known In the anthracito coal fields
now raging at the Luke Filler colliery,
li tbe remit In brief of a' carpenter*)
negligenoe. Fifty-fivo other Workmen
wbo were in tbe mine at tbe time of
the accident had thrilling escapes, u
they wore compelled to grope their way
through smoke and noslona gates in
order to reach the freah air and aafety.
Tbe foar men who are itlll milling
bare been smothered before thii, ai
all parte of the big mine are filled with
moke and doaaly afterdamp.
The fire darted in the air way of No.
1 abaft late last night, and Irvio Buffington,
whom the colliery officials bold
responsible for tiie diaaater ia dead. -Ilia
body nag not bnrned, aa death waa due
to anffocation. George Brown, a miner,
and hia 1'oliah helper, Anthony Boberttlk;
liobert, a driver boy from Lnko
yidler and another Polish laborer, are
in the miue, and no hope ii entertained
of recovering them. The mine ia a
mass of flamea and cannbtbe approached
from any direction. it ia feared that
tbe inside workings will have to be
flooded, which tneane many month! o(
idlenoaa to tbe 000 employes.
Snperintendent Morris Williams, ol
tbe Mineral railroad and mining com
pany, informed a representative of tho
Associated Press that while irwin Bufllngton,
John Anderson, jr., and others
-were engaged in retimbering No. 1 shaft
the former disobeyed orders by light
ing his naked lamp in the air coarse for
the purpose of testing the air. A spark
set flro to the timber that ?a* as dry
as powder and tho enrront carried tho
flames np and down the shaft like lightning.
Bufflngton was advised by his
fellow-workmen to mako good his escape,
but he neglected to heed their
warning and returned to the bottom of
the shaft iivorder to exchange his sum
boots for his shoes. The delay cost him
his life and his dead body was recovered
in tho tunnel about 5 o'clock this morning.
Superintendent Williams, Mine Inspector
Edward Brannan, Inside Foreman
August Hehr and Arthur Kennedy,
and all of the under bosses at tho Fidler
and Cameron mines, formed throe relief
parties and entered the mino to rescue
the sixty impriaoned workmen bv
way of the coal run workings through
No. 3 airway on the mountain, and
down the new shaft. The latter opening
proved a Godsend to the men, as it
is to this channel that moat of thorn
owe their escape. The smoko spread
through tho inaide workings w^h great
rapidity, and alarming the men and
! boys doing nighf duty in the mine.
While the imprisoned men wero rushI
ing through the inside workings in
soorcu 01 an air gaaii ior an outlet,
hundreds of tboir friends gathered
about the mouth of the shaft, and as
the lan honse was destroyed by the volume
of the flames, the cries and moans
of the mothers, wives, sistora and children
of the imprisoned employes sent
cbilla-through the hearts of many hardy
miners, who were waiting for an opportunity
to assist their doomed comrades.
Two of the men were overcome by tho
smoke while making their eicape, but
the Coal Ran rescuing party succeeded
in carrying them oat and restoring
them to consciousness. The gangs of
workmen cannot get to any point near
the firo on account of tho' smoke and
gas, so that tho flames cannot bo fought
with any success.
Tlio mine connects with the Hickory
Swamp colliery of the Union Coal comrany,
and it has to be drowned out,
which will compel both mine?* to shut
down for a year or more. The Luke
Tiddler colliery is operated bv the Mining
Company, and gives employment to
000 men and boys.

III Maryland?Judao liond to the Orand
Jury Concerning Weight*.
CdXBtftULXD, Mn., Oct. 0.?Jndgo
Bond, addressing the grand jury of
Allegheny county, referred to tho late
coal strikes in these words: "I am
charged that some of tho operators in
this region did not allow thoir men a
fair and just weight. We havo on our
statute book a law in referenco to that
matter which requires the operators to
allow tho miners a full woight for the
coal thov havo dug, and if on your investigations
you find that any of thoso
parties have violated thoir duty in that
respect, it will bo your duty to prosont
them and have thorn brought to trial.
If tboro aro any such casos brought to
your attention it is proper for you to
investigate both sides fairly and thoroughly."!
