Theso, I am confident, wou.d avuit many of tho great mire sjkte-3. la tbe 11. st place, omntayers should spvo no xpense in the eceolion of a safe and re 'Ma plant' everything should be of tao beet possible kind, and etpeo'a'ly adapted to luo surrounding c'euimtanoes. All engines should be fitted more than equ.-l in power to meet any nnd evo-y co-it: 'jency. rbo fans should bo capable of pvoducing a much gre.iter quaniit.T of air than ij ac tually necessary in vh'o prosent distribuiion T boo, in case any largo and unexpected outbursts of gas tukos placo, the fan or laus would bo capable of diluting it and render ing it harmless. MINK MAMAdlCilKNT. In the selection of a person to lake cbargo of amino groat care should bo exorcised ; his experience should bj of tbe most practical and extensive kind, and un doubtedly he Bhould possess tact and firm ness in tho mantgoment of his men. The more harmony that exists between master nnd men, tho more satisfactory resum can be expected. Tho person in charo of a mino should bo invested with powr to chooso his own subordinates and nn re strictions should be placed upjn li'm in tbe matter ot procuring a sufficient number of oQkois to meet all emergencies. There should bo a sufficient number of officers so that they could reaoh ovory working face beforo the mon roach their work ; and one or more vUi's should bo paid each and every working face while the men are at work. This fact cannot be too deeply im pressed. "Whenever an order is iwued, the person in authority issuing such order should see that it is fully and punctually carried out; a failure to do so r ',,uits in loose discipline, which is often thi m-c of disasters. Wbonovor danger is und in any man's working face, there bo ild be u sutllcicnt number of officers tr -'low ono of them to spend the greater part of his time iu endeavoring to removo said danger, also to give tho mon tho boneflt of his superior ability and experience. Whenever an order that has been issued fails to bo com plied with by reason of negligence, then tho person reoelving such order should be immediately dismissed. 1IIKIKQ Serious and mature consideration should oe given to the matter of opening a new mttie. Hie pitch of tho vein, tho nature oj the top, bard or soft, brittle or pliable; also the indications of gas in great or loss quan tities would setvo in aiding tho person in cbargo in arriving at h conclusion as to tbe best method to be adopted in tba system of mining the oonl. Depending upon the depth of the shaft, oto., as to the width of tbe pillar thnt would remain intact, a wrong move in the outset has iu certain oases re sulted disastrously. A general squeeze oovering tho fliolo area of a oolllery has been occasioned by leaving insufficient pil lars. There should be a good and substan tial pillar left between each breast, and every 119 yards there should be a reservation pillar ot CO yards in width. These should ba loft in every vein worked, and each pillar to overlie each otber, so that the second out let, that I will again refer to, can bo driven in ovory third reservation pillar, or in the second if found necessary. This would en- ablo us to rob tho workings in diffurenl sec tions between tho reservation pillars with out affecting the safety of tha gangway or general oonditlon ot the oolllery. .Equally well you ooutd first rob the breasts in tba upper vein, between tho reservation pillars, within a safo distance of tho gangway ; then proceed with tbe underlying veins in the samo way. Thus tho gangway could be kept intact until It reached tho pillar .iiiti. By rubbing tho pillars in tbe manner de scribed, no genoral squeczo of a largo area could occur which has n of en cattfod dis ajtnrsand bss of life. In case the ovorly ingtop Is of too hard a naluro, and does not give way after the process of robbing has been completed between the res erva tions, 1 would suggest that this space ba fliled up with culm from the banks. Tnis would avoid any concussions from heavy falls, that m'igbt otnse diater. Tais meth od of filling hss been praolioally proved to be a succejs, as shown at Kohinoor col liery, Sb.eo.andc.ih, la. T1IK SICOVD OtJTtiXT. I will now call attention to the second outlet ai a means of stfety for tha mon. In the antbracilu regions, where tho coal crop-i out to the surface, these second outlets oould be driven In each and every vein to the surface, nnd if driven at the maximum distance of 300 yards between each and every one, if an ac Ident should ovor oc cur and c'ose tho mon inide, the groatMt distance they could be situated from tho outlets as means of escape would bo yardi. Such outlets as mentioned would Jnsttre an eaiy way for rescue or escape). In the bituminous region, where holes to the surfaoo would not bo always practicable. small shafts could be sunk at tho dihttnea mentioned, to servo precisely the samo piwpose. I would suggest that thoso out lets be msinlainod in good condition until the coal bo all worked to the basin, gang ways completed to boundary line aud pil lars robbed back to inside outlet; then all the pillars that have bi'en retained to sup port tho inside outlot can be robbed, "and then tho coal intervening between this and tho next outlet can ba dealt with in tho same manner. KNQ1N BBRIXQ DIIVARTM ENT. The inside boss in charge should bo pn-. vlded with a correct map of his working which should be kept poslod once In throo months at least. I would suggest thnt all air courses, main stoppings, BpitU be marked on tho map, in order that the di rections ol tho currents be always present to his mind. This should be done beforo tbo map can bo cotieiderod complete. AU workings lying in close proximity to tho colliery that is being opeued out should bo correctly surveyed and resurvoyod, leaving no doubt in the minds of the employes and employers a? regards the exact distances they can proceed with thoir working- with out ondangeriug a, life. Al' ab.tnionod workings should be marked on thj map5, giving tbo relative positions of any two points that are desired to be known. If tho nbandoned workings contain any nox:ous gases or large quantities of water, or aro supposed to contain thom, a yery wido margin should bo left to insure safety, and oven beforo reaching tho margin laid out on plan, they should have bore holes in advance of them, so thnt any and overy precaution made will give you the sntiid'ac t'mu that lives are al slake and bavo boon mvod through the exercise of extra care. I'nrt II treats on limps, ventilation and tho oust theory. It will be published to morrow. A GLORIOUS GO. Tho Lakeside Eisteddfod Com mittee Met Lnst Night.
