THE riTTSTON TRAGEDY.
Funerals of tbe Victims CondnnKtlon of
the Testimony Ucfore the Coroner.
Pittston, May 30. On every hand to-day
one is reminded of the recent sad calamity at
West Pittston. Business is entirely sus
pended, all the stores being closed. FJags
draped in mourning float from a number of
buildings. The funeral rites over the bodies
of eight of the victims, principally Welsh
men, took place at West Pittston. Seats and
a speaker's stand were erected beneath the
shade of an orchard near and in Bight of the
scene of disaster, and by 1000 this morning
two or three thousand persons had assembled
to show their respect to the dead.
The bodies, all of which were in neat walnut
coffins, were placed in front of the stand in
the following order: John II. Burroughs,
aged 21 years; Evan Davis, aged 32; Benjamin
Jones, aged 30; Davis Edwards, aged 30;
John Lloyd, aged 27; A. L. Smallcombe, aged
f6; Peter Davis, aged 23, and Thomas Pros-,
ser. Edwards, Lloyd, Jones, Smallcombe,
and Davis leave families; the others were
As the bodies were brought to tho ground,
followed by their friends, scarcely a dry eye
could be seen, while the sobs and exclama
tions of bereaved wives and children, brothors
and sisters, saddened the scene. Surround
ing the stand were large numbers of repre
sentatives of the W. B. A. from over fifteen
branches. Sons of Temperance, Good Tem
plars, and the Brotherhood of St. James, a
The inquest was resumed today. Drs.
Gorman and Nugent, physicians in attend
ance after the accident, testified that the
miners visited by them died from foul air
and the effects of carbonic acid gas.
S. II. Browne, the agent of the lessees of
the mine, was sworn, and testified as follows:
I was at the mine on Wednesday lastvwhen
Mr. Williams, the Mine Inspector, entered
the mine; I did not go in myself, but saw the
inspector when he came out, and he appeared
to be perfectly satisfied with the condition of
the mine, and said nothing about too many
men beiDgatwork or anything contrary to
law; I asked Williams if Kendriok, the super
intendent of the mine, was doing well, and
whether he was competent, and he, Williams,
replied yes; when I took charge of the works,
in January, I instructed Mr. Kendrick to
have everything put in good order, and I also
ordered a large fan put up, but the work had
not been completed; I also gave Mr. Ken
drick a copy of the ventilation bill for his
guide; the members of the coal company are
Messrs. Blake, White, Seward, and Hoyt,
and they leased the mine for five years from
the Luzerne Coal and Iron Company; the
company have expended, in the purchase
and improvements, about six thousand dol
lars. The breaker was not insured, and the
loss, the witness thought, would fall upon
the lessor, though the other side thought dif
ferently. James McDermott, the engineer of the
mine, was sworn Mr. lieese did not send me
word on Saturday that I was runnincr too
fast, nor did he come to me. Mr. Reese on
several occasions complained about speed
being too great for his work, and the engines
were 6loweu to please mm; tne engine was
calculated to run from GS to 70 revolutions
per minute to do the work; I was ordered to
keep np this speed; the fan always made just
double the revolution of the engine; the fan
was 74 feet in diameter, and the journals 31
inches; there was a talk one day of increas
ing the speed of the engines to one hundred
revolutions per minute, by putting a larger
wheel on the crank shaft, so as to ran the
fan faster, and thus get more air in
the mine; this alteration was
to have been made on Monday; I
tried the engine on Saturday, about 1 o'clock,
np to speed of nearly one hundred revolu
tions, or at least ninety; I run tne engine at
this speed about ten minutes; it was Mr.
Gorman's business to oil the journals under
my directions; the journals ought to be oiled
every three hours, but have known them to
run in winter eix hours; they require oiling
often er in hot weather, but they ought to
tun three hours in the warmest day; the inside
journal was oiled through a tube four feet
long and a quarter inch bore; the shaft ran
on metal beamings; the outside of the fan
was pine; the wings were also of wood.
Mr. IvendrioK, tne superintendent ot tne
mine, was recalled When I returned from
the bottom of the shaft with tho mine in
spector I stayed a few moments, then I
walked towards the officer; Mr. Williams
said, "You seem to have quite a nambor
of men down there; I counted fifteen in the
shifting shaft while I stood in the door, and
I fouud men working in the east gangway,
and there were men in the west gaagway.'
I (witness) replied, we were probably
working rather more than the legal num
ber. Mr. Williams then said, 'You may
go on for ninety years without an accident,
but if one did happen you will have to
look out for consequences." Mr. Williams
did not tell me to take out any of the men.
Mr. Williams could have easily ascertained
how many men were at work. Inspector
Williams never cave mo any ofliaial instruc
tions as to the number of men I should em.
ploy. I came to this country since the ventl
lating act was passed. 1 understand we can
employ as many men as we please, 11 the
Inspector does not object. I was a mining
engineer in the old country, and served
