Urownarllle. !'.. Irc. M. Work at
Urainell mines where a terrible km a
explosion occuired last Saturday, Is
progresstng very slowly. The country
roads from Hrownaville to the mine
are almost Impussable and there Is no
telegraph or telephone connections
with Iliasnell. So all news from the
mine has to be brought overland. Four
more bodies have been recovered, but
not Identified. This makes a total of
IS bodies recovered.
Some of the families of the doomed
men are In a suffering; condition, and
provisions arc being sent out by the
lirownsvllle merchants, as well as
from Unlontown. The men who have
been working, since Saturday to re
cover the bodies are almost exhausted,
yet they refuse to give up. and keep
at the grim work doggedly, though
more dead than alive. The fact that
last Saturday was pay day at the mine,
and that there were no empty wagons
to load, accounts for many not going
Into the mine that morning. Had the
accident occurred any other day there
would have been more than a hun
dred men In the mine, and the result
would have been even more appalling.
1 lie scenes about the morgue Sun
day and Sutula night were such as
to bring tears to many a stout heart.
As the burned and bleeding bodies
were carried from the shaft wives and
children would fight frantically to get
to the corpse, and when held back by
strong arms would weep pitifully and
plead to be allowed to enter the morgue
and find their lost ones. It Is an oc
currence that can newer be forgotten
by any who witnessed It. Some of the
bodies have been removed to their
homes nnd were buried yesterday.
A pathetic story Is told of little Al
bert Meese, who died after being res
cued. He lived only a few steps from
the shaft. He went to the window
Saturday morning and looked out, say
ing to his father: "Papa. I guess there
Is no use of my going to work this
morning, as there 13 no loading."
The father ald he had better go
and help him feed the mules. They
both started out together and never re
turned to their nome -alive.
Sad, sad was Cnristmus day to many
a family about Ilrnznclt. In fact, the
excitement caused by the terrible acci
dent drove all thought of the holiday
festivities from the homes of all who
live In the neighborhood, even those
who had no friends killed.
The mine officials admit that two or
more bodies nro still In the mine, but
representatives of the Slavonic society
have made a house to house canvass
nnd report thai olght of their number
alone are In the wreck, anil how many
others they do not know.
That naked lights and unlocked snfo
ty lamps were used In a dangerous
mine was officially confirmed yesterday
by Pit Doss Thomas Jones, who made
a statement which forms the most sen
sational chapter on the management
of the mine which has yet developed.
Mr. Jones was aked if It was true that
on Thursday morning he Issued a gen
eral order that the miners could dis
pense with safety lamps. He admitted,
that he had Issued the order, sayinn .
"I considered tnat the mine wan safe,
as the 'break through" hail been fixed
Th? revised list of tho recovered
dead and those known to bo missing
and almost absolutely certain to be In
the mine Is as follows:
Dead Andrew Ilapshlp, John Po
