"Hill Farm mine," the ill fated, lias added ten more victims to its black record. Just as one shift had about completed its labors and was about to leave the mine a terrific explosion rent the inte rior of the mine, and nineteen miners w ho were working in the vicinity were thrown iu all directions, the roof came tumbling down, and the close air of the mine became stupefying. The men rushed in every direction seeking meaus of escape, but only nine succeed ed in reaching the pit mouth alive. These were picked up by the rescuing party in different positions of exhaus tion after an hour of frantic search. As they reached the open air tUey fell prostrate into the arms of their wives and children, who had spent that long, weary hour at the pit mouth fearing that they would never see their loved ones again. Terrible Scenes at Pit Month. As these nine emerged from the mine pit one by one their faces were black ened, their hair scorched aud clothing burned almost to shreds from the liames that followed! the explosion. The other ten perhaps never regained con sciousness pfter the disaster. Their bodies were found lying in all shapes horribly burned when the- rescuing par ty reached them. The explosion oc curred in the Ferguson mine of the Dunbar Furnace company, which ad joins the "Hill Farm mine." It is be lieved by mining experts that the tire which has boon raging in the "Hill Farm mine" since the disaster of ISiKi broke through the walla which had been erected between the "Hill Farm mine" and Ferguson mine and caused an explosion of gas. As soon aa the news of the explosion was known to the oflleialB of the com pany a rescuing party was organized, and half a hundred men descended in the deep pit to rescue the injured and dying. Great volumes of smoke rolled out of the mouth of the mine, and the rescue work wna dangerous. Almost blinded by the dense smoke, the men pushed on for nearly two miles until the first of the dying miners was found. The injured were carried out and taken to the company house, where half a dozen physicians were already in .wait ing. The miners who were found dead are so terribly burned that it is impos sible to identify them. Two Miles of Timbers lllonu Ont. The explosion was a most terrifying one, and for two miles timbers were completely blown out. The flames shot through almost every room in the mine, setting fire to the timbers and burning the pit cars that were in the section of the mine where the explosion took place. The dead are all foreigners, ex cepting James McGuerque, son of Pit Boss John MeGiienine. The pit boss was in the mine at the time of the ex plosion, but escaped death by crawling into an abandoned room, where he re mained until the flames had swept by. T!elr Gain, JSot Oars.
