MrNelll dwelt at length on the
danger from explosions of oosl dust
In mines, giving example of arlous
axploslotM and their causes. Ho said
thru oxploBlons from coal dust More
frequent and of tho most dangerous
and disastrous nature. Ho told of
tlio measure being taken today In
some mine to prevent conl dust
explosions such a sprinkling tho
mine with wntor from pipes undor
high pressure nnd the Injection of
steam by mechanical means and
flno sprays of wntor.
"Howovor," ho sold, "the most
prolific causo ot coal mlno explo
sions 1 tho uso of highly Infl.im
mablo black powder tn shooting
nnd unlcsft this 1 done nwny with
all the other precautions would bo
useless." Ho addod that tho death
rate In conl mines In Oreot llrltnln

It Is 3.10 per ono thousand persons
Employed. During tlio last year
ear tho death rate In conl mines
hns shown a mnrkod decrease. Ho
ndvlaod tho uso of an electrical fir

shots could bo fired at tho same
time with nil minors on the surfaco

Tho flnnl day's session opened
Friday. Following 11 paper, whleti
was road by U. J. Griffiths, super
intendent of tlio Victor Amorloan,
Fuel company of Trinidad, Colo., In
which Griffiths urged tho adoption
of u uniform system of timbering
for mines, this resolution was ad
opted by tho convention:
Ilosohed, That It Is tho senso of
this meeting that any systematic
method ot timbering whloh c-outem-pinto
the placing of supiorts at
rcgulnr Intervals Is not applicable
to the character of roof overlying
tho conl moHsiire in llocky Moun
tain regions, and thut the only Mfe
method Is to rouulre Umber to be
sot to eecuroly support the roof In
each JndUldunl working place. It
Is furthor resolved that this Insti
tute, uso nil fair moans to provont or
repeal any legislation which would
attempt to establish systematic
Umbering In tho soutral states in
which Uiq Institute operates.
