The Terrible Disaster at Pittston 40 Men
In a Shaft 300 Feet Deep, and Surrounded
toy Fire Half of them Killed.
Pittston, May 27. The Knight shaft at
West Pittston, owned by the Lehigh Valley
Bailroad Company, and operated under lease
by C. A. Blake & Co., of New York, took fire
about 2 o'clock P. M., it is supposed from
friction in the hoisting apparatus at the top
of the breaker, and burned fiercely and rapidly
to the ground. At the time some thirty to
forty men were at work in the mine, to which
there is but one outlet, by means of the shaft,
three hundred feet deep.
Aa many as could be were pulled out, but a
number of viotims remain in the mine below
to suffer all the horrors of the Avondale disas
ter. The engineer stood at his post hoisting
away nntil the timbers supporting the rope
burned away. At this time the carriage was
ascending. All the miners who were on it at
the time were preoipitated below and dashed
to pieces at the bottom of the shaft.
GREAT DISTRESS AND ANGUISH STEAM FIRE
r ENGINES ARRIVE.
The scene abeut the shaft is one of great
distress and anguish. Two steam fire engines,
one from Scranton and one from Wilkes
bane, are on the ground.
ENGINES PLAYING ON THE RUINS. .
The fire engines are playing on the ruins,
which are so hot that no one can approach,
and will probably be unable to do before
i) P. M. A dog has just been sent down
the shaft of the mine, and has been brought
up alive, which fact encourages the belief
that the thirty three men yet in the mine may
AN ENTRANCE EFFECTED.
Pittston, May 28130 P. M. At half.
paBt 12 o'clock this morning the workmen
bad suoceeded in effecting an entranoe to
the bottom of the shaft, and brought to the
surface one man, named Andrew Morgan,
who resided at Brandy Patch, Pittston. He
was in a comatose state, with stertorous
breathing, and perfectly insensible, nis
pulse was very low. They also found Hiram
Curtis, dead, lying with his face in the water.
His body has not yet been brougni up.
At a quarter of one o'clock they Bent up
word that the men had barricaded themselves
in, and the cage was Bent up for more men
tools to remove the barricade. But little
hope is entertained of the safety of the re
Twe o'clock P. M. Two additional men
have gone dewn to assist those below in
breaking the barricade, but nothing further
has been elicited p to this time.
THIRTY MEN BROUGHT OUT EIGHTEEN DEAD,
Pittston, May 28wNoon. Up to ten A.
M. thirty men had ben brought out, ten of
whom were dead, and at noon not more than
one or two remained in Ue mine. The total
number in the mine at Ue time of the dis
aster was thirty-six or Vhirty-seven, and
eighteen have been taken cut dead. Every
one of the men brought up for the past two
hours was found Btone dead.
THE tA8T MAN RESCUED.
2 30 P. M. The last man, Benjamin J.
Jones, who was supposed to be crushed by
the carriage, was brought up alive. He was
discovered in a distant portion of the mine.
DETAILS OF THE AFFAIR ELICITED.
riTTSTON, May 28. An interview with
Martin Cox, one of the miners, who, by the
dispensation of a Divine Providence, was
almost miraculously rescued from the most
horrible doom whioh sealed the fate .of nearly
a score of his fellow-workmen at the West
Pittston catastrophe, elicits the following:
We went in at 7 A. M.; my brother Robert
went through from one 6tairway to another,
and turned on the gas, and six miners came
out with him before their shaft was up; the
air was so bad they could not work at all; this
was about fifteen minutes before the fire, and
the seven men came up to the top five
minutes before the fire was discovered.
THE FIRST INTIMATION OF FIRE
we had was a sound .through the mine as if
there was an explosion of gas.
An Englishman said "There is fire." He
was then working about fifty yards from the
bottom of the shaft, on the west side. I then
ran to the bottom of the shaft and saw fire
cqming down; ran back to my comrades and
told them "We are all lost, the shaft is on
fire;" we were seven in all; we then ran to the
bottom of the shaft, and the burning embers
were coming down; we threw on water to put
out the fire, and the smoke became so dense
that we nearly suffocated; denso volumes came
down the shaft and filled the place; we then
ran over to the west side, in the direction of
the river bridge down the slope, and got in
the door with eleven others. Eighteen alto
gether were in this place.
BATTLING THE SMOKE.
The smoke came in upon us so badly that
we gathered up a gob of fine stuff from the
track and plastered up the cracks of the door,
and also stuffed coals in the holes, which
stopped the smoke for some time. We now
had time for thought and reflection. No one
expected to see daylight again, and said it
was a second Avondale. We all sung hymns
and prayed, calling on God in nig mercy to
save us. As we all felt doomed beyond
human aid, we ran back and forth through
the gangways for fresh air. At quarter after
3 P. M. Patrick Farley fell to the ground
twice, and was found dead when the men
came in the place after the fire.
I then went over to the west side for my
coat to help stop out the smoke, as we would
all be suffocated very soon. The men then
passed me carrying back their comrades, who
were dying in their arms. More men were
outside the doors crying out in distress and
anguish, and calling upon God for safety and
succor. None expected to come out alive.
At 730 P. M. became insensible, and re
mained so until I was brought out by my
brother Robert, about 5 A. M. to-day.
Martin Cox is an intelligent Irishman, aged
about 22 years.

ALE. AND PORTER, APPARATUS.
W. W. FENNER,
No. 12T NORTH SIXTH STREET,
Soie Agent for Strater's Patent.
This machine is entirely different irom the old
style Beer Pump. It performs Its own work, and
requires no labor. The liquors are forced np from
tbe cellar to tbe bar-room by means of a pressure of
air made by force of water, and can be drawn just
as clear as directly from the barrel.
Among the many advantages claimed for this
machine are. that the beer or ale never become
flat, and can be drawn as cold as Ice water with very
small expense of ice.
Tbe Apparatus can always be seen at my place la
operation, or at any of the principal soloons in this.
