THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, MAY 30, 1871.
THE TITT8T0X DISASTER.
The Coroncr'a Inquest Important TestU
Pittston, Pa., May 2'J. At 10 o'clock this
morning, the jury, consisting of Messrs.
James Welsh, James Fitzpatrick, G. W. Free- j
man, G. Barratt, and Morgan Jones, miner,
assembled at the office of Dr. J. Pomally,
-when the following witnesses were ex
amined: James McDeriuott sworn I was the engi
neer in change of the machinery on Saturday,
at shaft of Blake & Co., West Pittston; the
first I knew of the fire ' was when Mr. Ken
drick, superintendent, came to the engine
house and called fire; I then saw the fire on
the brattice, next to the fan, which is some
fifteen feet above the engine-house floor; I .
gave the alarm to the bottom of the shaft, by
Soiling the wire connected with an alarm
ammer; also gave an alarm through the
tube; three engineers were at work at the
time the.fire broke out; myself and Mr. Ken
drick, one hour before the fire, measured the
air at the fan, and found it 24,000 oubio
feet passing through the mine per minute;
the cracker weight is some fifty or sixty feet
higher than the engine; there was no commu
nication for alarm between me and the cracker
boss; it was the business of Roland Gorman
to oil the machinery; he was there only since
Monday; I could not tell whether the fire
-occurred at the fan er at the top of the shaft;
if the fire occurred at the fan it might have
been caused by a hot journal; I do not know
whether there was proper ventilation or not;
about three years ago the coal was first taken
out of this mine; there is no place to get out
, but through the main shaft; there is onlyone
vein of coal; T. M. Williams, the inspector,
'Was in the mine last Thursday.
Thomas Phillips, weigher of coal at the
foot of the shaft, testified to being in the
mine at the time of the fire.and when he heard
the signal had just put a load of coal on the
carriage. lie shoved the car off again, but
saw no fire at that time at ,the foot; signalled
but got no answer. Witness put on his coat,
And as soon as be discovered there was fire
went up on the carriage on its twenty-eighth
trip. Witness was not told to warn the men.
W. W. Kendrick, the superintendent of
the shaft, was sworn, and testified as fol
lows: My duty is to take charge of the
mines, lay out the work, and take a general '
superintendence of the work above and
be! low; I considered the ventilation sufficient
for the number of men we had at work; we
had from twenty-eight to thirty belonging to
the Mary shafts and at work at the time; I
employed Phillips; did not give instructions
to him as to his duty, but gave Frank Keller
instructions to inform Phillips of his duty:
it was the footman's duty to attend and
respond to signals from the engineer's
room, or tell the weighmaster to do so;
there is only one alarm rapper; four raps was
to communicate with the speaking tube; it is
not a warning of danger, but calling attention
to the speaking tube; at the last visit of the
inspector, he ordered whistles at the bottom
to take the place of the rapper; the inspector
stated that increased means of ventilation
should be made as soon as possible; on Thurs
day the inspector and myself tested the air in
the passages, and found ten thousand six hun
dred (10,000) feet per minute passing through.
Mr. Williams, mine inspector for the dis
trict, was called and sworn) He testified sub
stantially as follows: It is my duty to visit
the mines in my district as often as necessity
requires it; I was at the mine on Wednesday,
and the ventilation was bad in portions of the
mine; in some places it was tolerably good; I
went all through it, and in the last gangway ,
had to grope my way through the smoke in
company with Mr. Kendrick; saw a dozen
men in the gangway, and asked if they were
working in the slope, if not, there were too
many men in the mine; Mr. Kendrick said
the men were engaged in the slope; I under
stood that the company were to con
fine themselves to twenty persons the num
ber allowed by law and on my visit was told
that the extra men were working on the
slope: there was bat 1G80 feet of air in the
mine at 10 o'clock the day I visited it for
working purposes; I also called attention
to the necessity of having whistles at the end
of the speaking tubes, instead of the system
of rapping; the 1G80 feet of air was divided
into the three pits, and I considered it bad;
I examined the fan and found that it was
driven very fast, and the up-cast airway be
longing to the fan was very small; I did not
know that there were working on the gang
way more than twenty men, but I saw others;
but I was told that other men were at work
in the slope preparatory to sinking another
At this stage of the proceeding a contro
versy arose between the witness, the Coroner,
and the Coroner's counsel, duriBg which the
counsel said if Mr. Williams did not answer
the question he would have him (Mr. Wil
liams) committed for contempt. Witness
resumed The owners have been making
efforts to improve the ventilation, but they
have not improved it much; the plans were
good enough, but the airway is not large
- enough; the company were working under
the 20-men law, and were compelled to do so
until they made another opening; they could
go for twenty years with the present opening
if they did not employ more than twenty per
sons; on the 12th of September fifteen hun
dred feet of air went into the mines; this was
before the present propiietors took charge;
on the 14th of January the new firm had im
proved the air considerably; I had supposed
that over twenty men were working; it would
have been my duty to go to the court and
apply for an ia junction if the additional men
were not discharged; in a conversation with
MrKendrick I said, "You may work for 00
years contrary to law, and then again you
may not work DO hours, and if anything hap
pens the company would be swallowed up;" I
' was always very part ular to get the law com-
Mr. Kendrick, the superintendent, testified
that Mr. Williams never asked him how many
men were at wors in the mine, and he never
received any official notice that he should
not employ more than twenty men.
' G. It. Gorman sworn I was employed as
fireman at the breaker, and bad to oil the fan
and breaker. The first I knew of the fire was
when Mr. Kendrick came into the engine-
room and called fire, and to stop the fan. I
did so, and th engineer gave the signal in
'' the shaft. I oiled the journals of the fan
' about 11 o'clock. It would run from six to
eight hours between the oiling. Never knew
. the journals to get Seated. Two years ago a
fire broke out About the same place. After that
the small roller was removed and a larper one
put in to prevent a similar accident. On the
day of the accident the governor on the
engine was not working, but the engine could
be t controlled by the throttle-valve. The
engine was good enough, but the governor
was out of repair. The belt would get oil
the pony engine, and then the other engine
would run too last.
Richard Clark, footman in the mines, testi
fed: I was in the mine and at the bottom of
the shaft: saw the fire and heard the signal;
it was my duty to notify the men; I called fire
to the men at the scale, but aiaa t go back ia
the works, and I came np on the third car,
with two others; there was no one left after I
came tip at the foot of the shaft to inform
the men f danger. Phillips oame up on the
fourth carriage after I did; men came up on
the first and second carriage; I had never
been instructed that it was my duty to inform
the men in case of danger.
Adjourned till to-morrow morning.
FOURTH OF JULY, 1871.
HAVE PLACED IN YOUR BAR ONE OF
FENNER'S ATP A II AT US FOR COOL
ING BEER, ALE, AND POUTER.
A NEW PATENT.
ALE, AND FORTER, APPARATUS.
W. W. FEN N Eli,
NO. 187 NORTH SIXTH STREET,
Sole Agent for Stratpr's Patent.
Tills machine is entirely different irom the old
style Beer Pump. It performs Its own work, and
requires no labor. The liquors are forced up from
the cellar to the bar-room by means of a pressure of
air made by force of water, and caa 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 becomes
oat, and can be drawn as cold as Ice water with very
small expense of Ice.
The Apparatus can always be seen at my place In
operation, or at any of the principal soloons m this
city. e 6 stuthm
