TO BE HELD AT PITTSBURG,
26 AND 27
President Taft Will Make an Address
on the 27th—Thirty Thousand Min
ers to be Present.
WASHINGTON, D. C, August 18.—
Thirty thousand miners are expected
to attend the great national mine
safety demonstration to be held in
Pittsburg, Pa., October 26 and 27
under the auspices of the Federal
Bureau of Mines, the American Red
Cross the Pittsburg Coal Operators'
Association and the United Mine
Workers of America.
The date, which was originally set
for September 16, has been changed
so that President Taft may be present
on the second day, October 27 to
witness a mimic mine explosion in a
temporary steel gallery on Forbes
field, an exhibition of rescue work
by helmeted miners following an ex
plosion, and to review the parade of
The president will make an ad
dress and will present souvenir prizes
to the miners taking part in the flrst
aid-to-the-injured and rescue work ex
hibitions. Walter L. Fisher, secret
tary of the Interior, Governor Tenor,
of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Joseph A.
Holmes, the director of the bureau of
mines will also be present. The gen
eral arrangements, for the demonstra
tion are in charge of H. M. Wilson,
engineer-in-charge of the bureau of
The demonstration, the purpose of
which is to teach greater safety in
mining, will begin the morning of Oc
tober 26, at the experiment station
of the bureau of mines Fortieth and
Butler streets. The first day will be
devoted to the interest of the mine
operators, mine owners, mining en
gineers and superintendents of mines.
There will be an explosion of coal
dust in the experiment gallery and
tests of mine safety lamps in gas.
The dangers of electric sparks in gas
and coal dust will be shown in one
of the galleries.
A class of miners will be trained
in the use of the oxygen helmet which
permits breathing in poisonous gases
for a period of two hours. The oxy
gen helmet has proved a valuable
aid in entering mines filled with fire
damp following an explosion.
In the afternoon the operators, en
gineers and superintendents will wit
ness an actual mine explosion in the
experimental mine of the bureau at
Bruceton, Pa., twelve miles from Pitts
burg. Coal dust will be allowed to
accumulate in the mine and black
powder, the. use of which is strongly
urged against by the bureau of mines
where there are dangerous conditions,
will be used. In other words, the
bureau's experts will carry out in tais
mine all th« bad practices which they
believe lead to explosions.
The next morning, October 27, the
demonstration will take place on For
bes field, the Pittsburg baseball park,
in the presence of the president of
the United States and other distin
guished visitors. A temporary steel
gallery will be erected on the play
ing field and the cause of the recent
great explosions in coal mines will
be shown in an explosion of coal dust.
Immediately following the explosion
members of one of the rescue corps
of the bureau, in their oxygen hel
mets, will rush into the smoke filled
gallery and go through the work of
rescue. Supposed victims of the ex
plosion will be brought forth and giv
Expert rescue teams from the prin
cipal coal mines of the country will
give friendly exhibitions and then the
miners will pass in review of the
president. The parade of the miners
will continue downtown to the river
front where a special pier has been
assigned them to witness the marine
parade in honor of the centenary of
the beginning of steam navigation
on the Ohio river.
The miner's demonstration will con
clude at noon and the remainder of
the day will be taken up with the
