Toe Many Mine Disaster.
From the illreitur of the bureau ef
mini's of (lie I'nited Mutes, II. Kinder
Unin, conies a reHirt which seemingly
niiiMild iiinke men stop to think. Here
la the npciiinif paragraph of Mr. Ilmn's
"foul bus been tinneil for three
months since the resumption of niln
Inu following lie five months' strike,
nml In lli.il time six explosion killing
i Iioiii IM men and injuring more than
I ."it others linve occurred In lilt unit
nous mines. The number and vio
lence of these explosions Is Increasing,
the record of the past month being
the worst of nil. The coal Industry
has not in years suffered us m.iny big
disasters, and the entire country prop
erly Is a mowed." "
It should he remembered thnt this
communication of Mr. I!, in consti
tutes a government mid ottii lnl report.
It gives the viewpoint of men whose
l.iislnesa It is to study situations and
without fear or favor to comment
The director asks these questions:
"Why did these explosions occurf
"Were they entirely accidental or
could they have been prevenfedr
"Will similar explosions follow?" Then
Mr. Main adds: "Investigations now
under wv will determine the cause of
past accidents and what. If anything,
might have been done to prevent
them, but Investigation alone will
give no assurunee that similar set-Idem
will not n gain occur. The rea
sons learned must he uplled and
every possible protection tuken If this
killing is to be stopped."
Due Partly to Strike's Results.
The country Is told In the course of
be director's resirt that w'ile the
seasonal hazards, which are greater
In t lie coal Industry during the winter
months, probably have Influenced the
result, there has been it lessening of
morale throughout the coal industry
us a result of the sirilte. which 'ends
toward a less careful attitude of mind
Another probable fuctor, be says. Is
n i-luinglnit In personnel at the mines
following: the strike and the shifting
i.f miners to camps where they were
not familiar with the danger. In
places, he says, there is a luck of that
discipline "which Is essential to pre
vention of disaster whether In fight
ing ii battle or In fighting the hazards
This government official tells the
country, which has been shocked by
recent terrible disasters In the mining
Industry, that In the fuce of these? In
creased hn.ards It Is the Instant duty
of operators and mine workers to con
centrate their uttention on the pre
vention of accidents. Unless thia Is
done, Mr. Bain save wamingly, there
will he more accidents and more Uvea
lost, however much the research men
may do to solve the cuusea of .cct
dents and to provide methods for
Until the present aeries of dis
astrous explosions the record of de
crease In accidents had led tha kureaa
of mines to feel that dangera from
ertaln aoareea were being eliminated.
After the demonstrations la tha min
ing bureau's experimental mine, be
ginning In 1911, the number of bitumi
nous mine explosions declined us a ra
sult of the educational campaign ttv
uugurated by the bureau of mlnea aad)
carried on with the co-ope rat loo af
miners and operators. During a tea
yearn period the number of deutha re
sulting from explosions waa decreased,
by one-half from the number killed
I during the previoue ten years.
Coal Dust Certainly Explosive.
It muy be Interesting to know that
practical mining men of the country
were still Incrednkius a few yeiira ago
ua to the exphtfribility of coal dual.
They were Invited to the experimental
n ine to witness the testa. In one of
the tests a mine cur wus shot from tha
entry of the mine with such force that
It was carried 300 feet through the air
before it landed on a hillside. Uttla
doubt remained after that In anyhody'a
mind Hint eoul dunt waa Itself explo
sive and was ulao the cause of Initial
explosion which later extended 'betr
force through the mine.
It seems to be believed hi Waahlng
lon that If the mining Industry run ba
stubillzed and troubles of various)
kinds which have beset It In tha past
run be minimized, the future may aa
fiilrly free from disaster. During lb
ten yeurs when there were conipura
tlvely few upsets In the Industry,
plosions were cut down materially.
Director Ruin auya exploelona earn

Is no reason, with the p reseat hnowW
