MINERS ARE SAVED BY
RESCUERS
THEY BUILT A FIRE WALL

AND MANY OTHERS MAY
BE RESCUED
FIRE BREAKS OUT
IN THE MINE AGAIN
Cherry, Nov. 20—At midnight
a small fire broke out in the
mine, cutting off the rescue
work. Fire apparatus had to be
lowered and a stream of water
turned into the mine. It is
feared ifthe fire is not. extin
guished shortly many men will
perish. Up to midnight only 20
men were brought to the sur
face. The fire appeared to be
spreading, and the heat is
more intense. R. E. Maxwell,
mining engineer in the rescue
party, was overcome and had to
be hurriedly brought to the
surface.
5herrv, Nov. 21—2:30 a. m.—
At 2 a. m. the fire is still burn
ing and the heat is so intense
as to prevent rescue of any liv
ing before daylight."
Cherry, Nov. 20—Late tonight
Dr. Weeks, one ofthe physic
ians In charge of the survivors,
said:
I have talked with all the
rescued men. They say they
are convinced many are still
alive, but it is impossible to
estimate how many. It may be
fifty, or a hundred, or less. It
seems the men were scattered
in all parts of the mine. If oth
ers had barricaded themselves
as these did, they are still safe.
"At ten o'clock men from be
low said they had heard sig
nals' in distant parts, but these'
sections are still cut off by
obstructions.
"Some, however, are within
reach and are being given med
ical attention. They will be
brought to the surface as rapid
ly as possible."
Cherry, Nov. 20—The gamut from
deepest despair to hysteria of hope
was run today when twenty miners,
entombed for a week, were rescued
alive. Their suffering and the hero
ism of their resourceful leaders is one
of the most thrilling stories of the
black history of mining disasters.
Forty swollen, scorched, dead bod
ies had been brought up, most of them
identified today, when the marvelous
report shot through the prostrated
community: "They have found them
alive!"

HOPES FOR OTHERS
"There are other resourceful leaders
among the missing, and they like
Waite, Clelland and others, may have

said State's Attorney Eckert tonight.
''The search is now for the living."
Less optimistic notes were sojnd
ed by others, but women, with hope
born afresh, refused to believe any
thing but the best, and haunted the
mine far intothe night, seizing fran
tically at every straw of encourage
ment offered.
Glad News Heralded
Cherry, 111., Nov. 20—Seventy-eight
men this afternoon were found a'ive
in the' nrtne.' In one section sixty**
seven and in another eleven.
Several were brought to the surface
and others were too weak to be mov

The news of the rescue spread like
wild fire. Great crowds pressed to the
mine grounds and yells and cheers
arose.
When one of the men, with black
ened face, thrust his bead out of the
car, the crowd became very demon
strative. The sheriff mounted the
platform and said: "Good people,

SCENES OF JUBILATION
Among the rescued was Geo. Eddy,
mine examiner for the company. The
greatest credit is given him for the
work of saving the entombed miners.
The scene around the shaft and the
company's office was one of the wild
est jubilation.
The names of the men rescued were
shouted from group to group down the
railroad tracks and into the village,
which was suddenly elevated from the
depths of despair to the pinnacle of
hope.
Every shopkeeper joined the crowd
of women and children in a hysterical
rush for the mine.
Since Monday no expert, either of
the schools, or practical mining, be
lieved a soul remained alive.
HOSPITAL IN THE MINE
Inspector Crawford, of the state
board of health, after being down the
mine for half an hour, reported sixty
seven of the live men so weak that
they were unable to stand the exer
tion of being moved. All the doctors
on the grounds and in the village were
hurried into the mine, where a tem
porary hospital is arranged.
William Cleland, one of the surviv
ors, after drinking a bowl of soup, ap
peared none the worse for the exper
ience. He said:
"As soon as we discovered last Sat
urday that there was no hope of es
cape, we retreated to a safe pla?e
where water was found. Fortrnately
some timbers behind us burned out.
and this let the earth and vo-v«s

must have been unconscious part of
the time.
CHEWED BARKi FROM STANCH
IONS
"I remember drinking quantities of
seepage that dripped down into a gut
ter, and eating my lunch. After that
some of us pulled off the bark, chew
ing it.
"We did not realize how'serious our
position was, in fact some men jokel
about it. After we drank all the wa
ter and the seepage had run dry. we
began to pound on the wall, to cause
more to drop down. Soon after this
we heard voices. We could hear them
digging on the other side of the rock
and dirt which filled the passage, and
soon a little hole was seen at the
top, and a gleam of torches came
through.
"Our first question was: 'Is it Sun
day or Monday.' Most of us thought
it was Sunday, and that we had been
in the mine only twenty-four hours."
FIRST SIGN OF LIFE
Father-Heany of St. Mary's church,
Mendota, who was down with the res
cuers, said:
"At 2 o'clock, when we were 300
feet into the gallery from th? hoisting
shaft, our party slacked up on account
of the debris. Suddenly David Powell
said: 'Listen, boys heard some
thing.' We all became silent. A faint
pounding on the wall was heard. 'My
God,', said Powell, "I believe somebody
is alive in there'.' Some others re
plied: 'No, that is impossible nobody
believes the men could live down here
for seven days.'
'Well, now,' I
Baid,
'let's listen
again.'
"We listened a full minute. There
came the muffled pounding we heard
before. We were too much affected to
speak and could not believe our senses
but grabbing picks and axes we began
to tear down the loosened earth anr
rocks. When we listened a^ain the
pounding was louder. A little black
hole opened before us.
ALMOST HYSTERICAL
"Three of us climbed over the dirt,
and yelled: 'Are any of you alive in
there, boys?'
"The answer came, 'yes.'
"Soon a large gap was made and
we yellea: 'How many of you are
alive, boys? We will save you in a
minute.'
"In faint, husky voices the men call
ed: 'Yes, we are alive, and you bet we
are hungry. Have you got some lanch
out there?'
"I crawled up near the hole and
yelled:
'God bless you men, we will ge'.
you out in a minute, and give you all
you can eat. Be patient as you can.'
"I could not see anything back
"there,'so" I climbed back, and= prayed
to God to make the number we would
be able to rescue as many as possib'e.
"By that time the hole was wide en,
and a dozen pairs of glistening eye
shining from black faces appeared.
"We kept yelling to the men, prom
ising the way would soon be clea
and we would be ready to carry them
to the surface.
"One of the men answered: 'Most of
us are all right, but one fellow, a
Frenchman, is almost gone.'
"When the pile of dirt finally tum
bled, some ofthe men were staggered
by the inrush of air and the light
from the torches. With a shout we
jumped over and met them, throwing
our arms around their necks. The'r
joy was inexpressible. They pounded
us on the backs and laughed and cried
until the place reverberatea.
"We. wanted to carry the men to
the shaft but they liislsfe'd tfie'y wei*e
strong and well enough to walk.
"I found the Frencnman breathing
his last. Holding a torch over his
sooty face I asked: 'Do you give your
soul to God?"
"He answered 'yes.' I administered
the sacrament and in a minute he was
dead.
UNPARALLELED HEROISM
"When walking toward the sha't
there occurred one of the greatest acts
of heroism I ever heard of.
"Walter Waite, one of the men res
cued,^ on hearing there were others
alive in another part of the mine,
threw off the blanket that covered h:s'

head and shouted: 'Well, then, by Gor
I am not going out of the mine until
I get the others.'
"We remonstrated and said: "We
will toke you up to get fresh air and
warm food, and then maybe let yoa
help us but Waite protested. We
actually had to force him into the
cage, he shouting: 'Let me help get
the others.'
UP LIKE A SHOT
"All the time those on the surface
had not conceived the possibility of
recovering any of the men alive. When
we called: 'We have got some men
alive, hoist quick,' we went up like a
shot and rushed the men into a Pull
man car, where they were cared for."
Across 150 feet of space between
the mouth of the shaft and the sleep
ing cars the survivors were taken
through a gangway massed with peo
ple and lined with troops. The wo
men especially scrutinized the faces
of the survivors as they passed.
As night fell the flicker of the
torches at a height of a hundred feet
roared the framework ofthe shaft ma
chinery. Each time the signal sound
ed to hoist the cage, there was a
murmur of expectancy and a press to
ward the line of ropes.
WIVES AND MOTHERS PLEAD
When the cage reached the top a
dozen torches lighted the rescuers,
who wore rubber coats. Between them
wrapped in blankets, they held the
rescued men, some standing, others
thejr carried. The procession movel
through the gangway and was greeted
sometimes by mothers and wives,
murmuring "Gillie," "Frank," "Oh
Andy, are you there."
Blankets drawn over the heads of
the men prevented identification. The
women tore toward the sleeping cars,
imploring anyone to give them gcod
news. One man, overcome by the ap
peals, called out the name of the man
he was escorting, shouting: "We have
George Eddy here."
HEARD CRY OF HIS WIFE
"Oh, George," came a woman's cry,
"Is it you? Come here. I am waiting
for you."
Eddy, who was the mine inspector,
was too weak to reply. At the car
steps the crowd was kept back.
In a little four-room cottage, "three
doors from the livery stable across ths
street," Mrs. George Suhacus this ev
ening became envied by all. for her
husband was the first to be taken
home. Subacus. and his brother John,
were among the first, survivors out. In
a bedroom lay Subacus, with his thre?
youngsters peering at his blackened
arms and face through the bars at the
foot of the bed. A Catholic sister was
watching the patient that he did not
overeat.
STORY BY A VICTIM
Subacus said: "The fire was burn
ing an hour before I knew of it. I
started to run, and met 20 others. We
tried to throw up a barrier, but it
was dark and we did not get along
well. All the time we were breath
ing gas. I had nothing to eat, but
chewed bark and drank water from
little holes in the bottom of the ent
ry. We made five holes, and there
was always someone at them. It was
our principal food."
"What did you do all the days you
were penned in?"
"We all said goodbye to each other.
At first the English sang songs, and
the Italians were praying: after while
we were all too weak to more than
crawl about.
"Nobody reached us today we
reached them. We wanted more wa
ter -we crawled over one barrier,start
ed and walked ten feet apart so as
not to fall on each other. The last
'fall-in' nearly blocked the passage.
We wormed through a long aperture—
scarcely a big enough hole for us. We
were dreadfully weak, for we breathed
so much poison. Then we saw our
rescuers. There was no cheering, we
just let them take care of us. No
body had voice enough to cheer."
Subacus was the only man allowed
to go home for several hours, the doc
tors fearing tbev would eat too much.
But the Lithunian was so excited he
was allowed to have his way.
Francisco Zannarini said:
"We managed to get enough water
from the sides of the gallery for the
first few days: then we thought we
would die of thirst. One man said:
'There is lots of water in this loose
coal if we could only bqueeze it out.'
Several men tried sucking hands ful
of coal off the floor and thus moisten
ed their lips and tongues.
"After while we all quenched our
thirst the same way
"We made twenty attempts to es
cape. This morning seven of us start
ed out of thp room, when we went, a
short distance the smell was awful.
We passed a lot of dead burros, prob
ably forty. I think the burros fran
tic with thirst, stamreded, and got
taneled in a heap and died.
"Our courage diminished Sunday
right when one fellow diei. Since
then we had alternately eloom and
merriment. When someone was de
snondert the others would try to
cheer him."
Joe Pignti. while being revised, pro
duced, a. letter written to his wife
on brown paper. It reads:
"I am writing in the dark be'aus®
we have eaten the wax from ir
lamps. I have also eaten a plu-x of
tobacco, some bark and some of nr'
shoes. I am not afraid to die H' ly
Virgin, have mercy. You know what
my property is. We workel for it
together. It is all yours. This is my
will. You have been a good wife.
"Goodbye until heaven bring us to
gether."
Another man brought to the sur
face solemnly requested that his wife
be kept from the car. and added: "I
have been away seven days, I think
I can apologize to her better at home."

Among the humorous and human

book, "Among the Wild Tribes of the
Afghan Frontier," is one of a British
officer in the Kurram valley who inter
rogated an Afridi with regard to what
was thdl considered a probable con
flict.
"Now tell me," said the officer, "if
there were to be war—which God for
bid—between Russia and England,
what part would you and your people
take? Whom would you side with?"
"Do you wish me to tell you what
would please you or to tell you the
real truth?" was the naive reply.
"I adjure you to tell me what is the
'white word.'
"Then," said the old graybeard, "we
would just sit up here on our moun

Then we would come down and loot
