Investigation of Twin Shaft
Disaster Is Rapidly Draw
ing to a Close.
PLAN OF COMMISSIONERS
They Will Not Only Lay the Testi
mony Before ths Governor but Will
Designate Where tbs Blame Lies,
If They Conclude Any One Was at
Fault Corroboration of tbe Testi
mony That tbe Mine Was Not
Worked in a Scientific Manner.
The taking of testimony bearing: on
the disaster at the Tw in shaft was con
cluded yesterday afternoon and the
commission adjourned sine die. At the
re-oppnlng of the session yesterday
morning at 10 o'clock the usual large
crowd was present, rilling every seat in
the capacious St. Aloyslus hall. Attorney-General
McCormli k was present as
the personal representative of the gov
ernor. The commissioners and attor
neys were the same an ut the previous
General Manager Law was called to
the stand by the miners' attorney for
the purpose of testifying to the list of
entombed men as compiled by the com
pany, in order that it mlcht be made
a part of the records. He was also
asked several questions relating to the
quality of the coal, which he said was of
the Red Ash variety, and certain dis
tances about the mine, all of which
have been dwelt upon heretofore.
Mr. Wheaton, attorney for the com
pany, introduced the question of expert
witnesses, saying that if the commis
sion desired to have them the company
could secure them. Mr. O'Boyle, one of
the attorneys for the miners, argued
that Inasmuch as the commissioners
themselves were experts It would hard
ly be necessary to call expert witnesses.
Attorney-General McCormick. after a
consultation with the inspectors, an
nounced that the commission was per
fectly willing to have either side Intro
duce expert testimony, but would not
call upon them to do so. No experts
TKSTIMONV OP HUOHKS.
Edward Hughes, the tracklayer, who,
It will be remembered, was the lirst wit
ness called, was again put on the stand
to testify to the. length of the rails used
In the mines. His evidence was In the
nature of u corroborative of the testi
mony of u previous witness, who Btated
that thirty-foot rails were used In the
mine, and that frequently it was pos
sible to turn these rails on a horizontal
plane, showing that the chambers must
have been over thirty feet wide. The
previous witness had testified to the
sume facts, but had never taken exact
measurements of the rails. Mr. Whea
ton at the time questioned the reliabil
ity of his evidence and to substantiate
It HugheB was recalled. He swore that
he had, In his capacity of tracklayer,
made frequent measurements of the
rails used In the mine and found them
to run from twenty-one to thirty feet
The next witness was Prank Tracey.
He testified that he was 50 years of
age and worked in the mines nearly 31
years, being a miner 26 years. All this
time was spent In the mines of Pitts
ton and Immediate vicinity. He worked
nt the Twin shaft up to the Thursday
before the accident, lie was not aware
of the squeeze going on as he worked
In a section of the mine removed from
the scene of the main disturbance.
To a question from Chairman Stein
as to the proper size of pillars he
stated that In his opinion a pillar
should be 13x29 feet, differing accord
ing to the thickness of the roof and
the depth of the vein below the sur
face. He satd he as well as the other
miners were instructed to drive the
openings from 22 to 24 feet In width.
He never had any particular fear of a
cave-In but was In dread of grip. The
Twin compared favorably with other
mines In the matter t pillars but In
gnngways it didn't. He frequently no
ticed chippings from the pillars, par
ticularly In warm weather, which
seems to have a bad effect on the pil
lars. In some few places preliminary
measures were taken to prevent the
chipping. He said he abandoned a
chamber one time and some time later
he went back to look nt It and found
enough coal chipped off to load his
cars for a month.
WIDTH OF GANGWAYS.
To. Mr. O'Bnyle's questions he said
that he was never in the gangway's
reached by No. 3 slope and could not
testify to their width. In the Pennsyl
vania Coal company's mines the gang
ways are about 16 feet. In the Twin
he saw twenty-four foot gangways. In
his opinion the chipping of the pillars
was not Paused by pressure but at
mospheric action. He could not say
anything regarding the condition of pil
lars In the caved-in area as he had
never been in there. In his opinion It
was not good mining to operate two
adjoining veins simultaneously, partic
ularly where the coal of the pillars Is
brittle fts was the case In the Twin.
There is no common sense in the state
ment that bottom pillars can safely
be smaller than ton ones, he said, and
It is bad mining not to have one plumb
over the other. For a good engineer it
is not difficult to have the pillars prac
tically one over the other. Miners at
the Twin were allowed to run their
chambers hap-hazzard. and as a result
of this failure of the engineer to give
them "points" It was not infrequent
for miners to break into one another's
At this Juncture adjournment was
made necessary because of the absence
of witnesses whom the miners' attor
neys counted on.
Mir'-ael Langan, aged 34, a timber
man a..Jhe Twin, was the first witness
called after the noon recess. He tes
tified that In the fifth vein It was some
times necessary to take down the roof
or cut up the floor In order to make the
passageway high enough for the cars
to pass. The blasting- on the floor
caused It to fall In upon the sixth vein.
In his opinion the pillars were too small.
He fra red a cave-in for three months
prior to the accident. He was one ot
the six men who quit on the Saturday
night Just previous to the accident be
cause ef the Imminent danger.
TWENTY YEARS EXPERIENCE.
To Mr. McGovern's questions he
answered that be worked In the mines
twenty years at what la .commonly
called company work, such aa timber
ing and the like. He worked In Schuyl
kill county until fourteen months ago,
when he went to work at the Twin. On
the day preceding the accident he was
called to the workings at the foot of
No. 3 slope to help erect cog pillars, to
arrest the squeeze. There wus no evi
dence of a squeeze along the slope and
gangway leading from the foot of the
The gangways were twenty-four or
twenty-five feet wide and breasts were
worked off them at right angles. The
coal at the Twin was hard and brittle.
He frequently noticed "chipping." In
his Judgment the pillars were not of suf
ficient size and the mine In general was
not worked m a prudent, scientific
Three months before the accident he
helped to fill up holes in the fifth vein
caused by the floor dropping through to
the sixth vein.
To Mr. Wheaton's questions he stated
that he came out on the night of the
accident because Foreman Delaney re
ported to them that It was impossible
for them to get In to where they had
been working In the daytime, a fall
having occurred and gas having col
lected. All of the forty miners who
were collected at the foot of No. 3 slope
awaiting the return of the Investigating
party heard Foreman Delaney's report
of the condition of the workings. He
was sure those who staid In heard It as
well as those who came out. The fore
man did not tell them to go home, but
simply said that they would be unable
to go into the workings.
NO OTHER TESTIMONY.
The attorneys for the miners were
disappointed In the two witnesses they
expected and announced that they had
no further testimony to offer.
Mr. MeGovern said that he and his
colleagues had agreed on their part not
to prolong the Investigation farther.
They felt that they had adduced suf
ficient evidence to show that the mine
was not worked in a prudent, scientific
manner, and that this evidence, to
gether with what knowledge the com
missioners had learned by personal ob
servation, was enough to enable them
to arrive at an Intelligent conclusion as
to what caused the accident and where
the blame should be placed. Any
further testimony could only be cumu
lative and as far as he and his col
leagues were concerned the investiga
tion cuuld end then and there.
Chairman Stein again reported nls In
vitation to anybody present to come for
ward and present any evidence that
would throw light on the matter In
hand, but no one came forward.
Attorney-General McCormick an
nounced that the commissioners would
he In Plttston until Saturday and would
be ready at any time to hear any one
who cared to give evidence. He also
said he regretted the fnct that the com
mission hud not the power to compel
the attendance of witnesses. Neither
side having anything further to offer,
adjournment was made.
WILL MAKE OBSERVATIONS.
The commission will spend today and
tomorrow making personal observa
tions and will then adjourn until the
stenographer can furnish them with
typewritten copies of the evidence.
After having studied the evidence they
will hold three meetings, one at Inspec
tor Roderick's ofiice In Scrauton, one in
Inspector Kicnnon's office In Shamokin
and the third In Inspector Stein's office
in Shenandoah. The report to be sub
mitted to the governor will be prepared
t this third meeting. It Is expected
that It will be five or six weeks before
the report Is completed.
The commission, according to the
statement made by Attorney-General
McCormick to a Tribune reporter, will
not only report their findings to the gov
ernor, but will ulfo place the blame, If
they conclude that any one is to blame,
and will also make any recommenda
tions they may deem advisable as to
changes or additions to the mine laws.

A BIT OF ROMANCE.
Love Found a M ny in This Case a in
A blushing young prirl, a sturdy young
man, a telegram and a marriage license
combined themselves into a bit of ro
mance in the clerk of the courts' office
yesterday afternoon. The couple were
Margaret Ouldstraw, of Audenreid. und
Horry N. Grover, of Hnzleton. They
applied for a marriage license, but were
refused because the bride-elect had not
lived the necessary twenty-one years
and hud not her parents' consent.
There was thr- uyual scene of nervous
ness on the part of the groom-to-be und
tears in the eyes of the girl, who was
pretty and stylishly dressed. Deputy
Clerk Bonn was ustd to that kind of
thing and considerately turned his buck
upon the couple, who retired to a far
corner of the loom to talk It over. The
result of their whisperings must have
been satisfactory, for the girl dried her
eyes and smiled as her companion
stepped quickly to Deputy Bonn's desk
and remarked that they would call luter.
Love hail its way In this case as it
has in many others. Graver and his
sweetheart went to the Wut?rn I'nion
telegraph ofiice and there indited a mes
sage. What it was nobody knows, but
later in the afternoon they reappeared
in the clerk of the courts' office pos
sessed of a telegram from Audenreid
which was signed l.y William Gold
straw, the girl's father. On the piece
of yellow paper was a message which
meant "yes," and the license was
A few momenta later Alderman Ful
ler appeared iu the clerk's office and on
the strength of the license and the fee
accompanying it the alderman pro
nounced the words which made the
Goldstraw girl Mrs. Harry Grover.
And they took a train for Audenreid
an hour later and are probably forgiven
by this time.

A CLOSED MOUTH
By Advice of His Attorney He Refused
to Discuss the Murder.
WAY THAT HE WAS ARRESTED
William Savitska, Who Had n tiricv
n n co Against 'iousc, Told the An
t!ioritiiNIle Was the Man Wautcd
nt Arcbbnld for Killing His Step-l"ntlicr--.llude
au llilort to Eicnpc.
John Gouse, who was brought back
to this city Wednesday night from Ma
hanoy City to answer for the killing of
his step-father at Arch bald In Septem
ber, 1894, refuses, by advice of his at
torneys, to tulk about the ssrlotis
charge made against him. The Ma
hanoy City officer left for this city ot 4
o'clock Wednesday afternoon with tha
prisoner and less than half nn hour
later County Detective Leyphon and
Constable John McHale, of AichbulJ,
started from Koran ton for that place
only to find when they arrived there
that their man was In Scranton.
William Savitska. of Mahanoy City,
was the cause of the arrest of Goose, or
Frank Burhko. as he was known at that
place. Savitska formerly resided at
Archbald and his wife claims to have
been an eye witness to the killing. Some
time ago Savitska became Involved In
trouble with another resident of Ma
hanoy City and cross suits of a crim
inal nature were the result. Gouse was
an Important w itness for Savitska, but
failed to appear to testify when the case
was called for trial at Pottsvllle and a
verdict was rendered against Savitska.
He blamed Gouse for this verdict and
swore that he would get even. Last
Sunday he went to 'Squire James
O'Brien, of Mahanoy City and told hun
the story of the murder. O'Brien wrote
to the . postmaster of Archbald and
Tuesday night received 'Squire Oil
day's) telegram to hold the man. Wed
nesday morning at an early hour a con
stable arrested Gouse at the grocery
store where he worked. He was not
told the charge against him and evi
dently had no thought that It was the
murder he was wanted for.
BREAK FOR LIBERTY.
'Squire O'Brien committed him to Jail
and while the constable was taking
Gouse there he enlightened him as to
the charge made against him. At the
Jail, while the constable was opening
the door, Gouse made a break for liber
ty and was only recaptured after much
difficulty. At first he denied being
Gouse, but after several persons had
Identified him he admitted that he was
the man wanted. His version of the
murder is given in another place in thin
column. Countable McHale, after his
return from Mahanoy City, went up to
the county Jail yesterday and positive
ly identified Gouse.
The Mahanoy City Record of Wednes
day evening after describing how the
Archbald authorities were Informed of
the presence of Gouse In that pluce has
this to say of the arrest:
William Savitska told Constable Russell
that Gouse wus at presnt employed us a
driver for Alex Shiner, a grocer nt 'Jil
West Centre street. Ve It known in
town as Frank Uuchko. At 6 o'clock this
morning Russell, armed with a warrant
and the information obtained, repaired to
Shiner's store and awaited the .arrival cf
his man. e
Shortly after 6 o'clock Buchko, holding
a wagon tongue and pulling a large
wagon behind him, appeared around tiiu
corner of Ctttuwlssa street und backed ths
vehicle up against the curbstone. KussdU
tupped up to him as he was about to en
ter the store and Informed him that Squire
O'Brien wished to see him.
Unconscious of what wit seeded, he
hastened over with the eoastable, wear
ing hi overalls and dressed for his dully
to.ll. When charged before the squire
with tbe atrocious killing of his step
father, August Gouss, he firmly denied the
crime. His denial, however, did not avu!l
with the facts attaint! him, and he was
commute! ta the borough lockup.
SEEMED VEUY QUIET.
He seemed very quiet and Inoffensive
and the constable allowed aim the privi
lege ef walking by his side without handcuffs,-
In order that they would create no
attention. This was all well, and good
until the lockup was reaehed. Russell
unlocked the door and walked inside, ex
pecting ihis captive would do the same.
But the wily I'olsniler wasn't going in
no uay. While Russell was entering,
with his back turned toward him, he
seized the opportunity and dashed around
the corner, running up Second alley to
Mahanoy street, turning up Mahanoy to
Third, down Third to I'lne and up Pine
to the school ho'ixe. The chase was a
lively one. with Russell, the lire company
driver und several citizens In hot pur
suit. At the school house Buchko real
ized that escnpo was hopeless, und
stopped. Russell recoveied his man at
this Juncture, feeling doubly sure that lie
had the ilsht man in tow.
He Bulked buck to the lockup without
further demonstration. A telegram waj
hastily sent to Chief of Police O'Hourke,
of Archbuld, Btating that the man had
been captured, and asking for a constable
to bri. t him back.
In a conversation with Mr. Shiner, who
conducts the grocery store, he stated to
your representative that Frank had been

He took an occasional drink, but vex

TALKS GOOD ENGLISH.
A Record representative saw IJuchko in
a cell tiiis morning. The fellow t.iiks goo I
English. He stands about u feet 7 Hii iics
In height. Is fair compltxioned, shore
gundy moustache, weighs 1U pounds und
gave' his age as 21 years. He said his
mother married Buchko twenty years
uko, when he was a mere babe and, al
though a step-father, he regarded him n
his father In the full scn.'e and took his
name. August, the step-father, wus i
miner by occupation, dranit rather freely
and at times would call his neighbors
ubout him and onjoy in a good frolic it
It was during one of these frolics on a
Sunday afternoon about two years uko,
that a number of his countrymen had as
sembled at the house, and were scattd
around a keg of bee!-. They had become
rsther nolry from imbibing too freely ami
began swearing and making a big racket.
Uuchko, a muscular lad of 13 years, In
flamed with liquor, came in and ordered
the drunken and profane revellers to
top swearing, as the neighbors objected
to their noisy Imprecations on a Sunday
afternoon. His protest only caused them
to be more noisy and abuslvo, and so
angered him that he dealt the step-father
two blows on the side of his face with his
fist. The blow staegered the old man and
he fell from his seat to the floor. Buchko
then went ont In the yard and walked
about for several minutes and when he
returned he was horrified to find the step
father lying In a potl of blood and al
SHOE-LAST BY HIS SIDE.
An Iran shee-last was close by bis Ido.
Frank questioned all as to who had used
the last, and one Joseph rtimlnlskl told
him tfaat tbs best thing to ds would be
to skip out aa he, Buehko, was accused
of anaJilUng bis father and dealing him
a fatal fctew wltt the laat. Ha took (fee
advice and drifted from one place to an
other until ha setird employment bare.
rre days after the assault Gouss died.
Rlmlrtski,' who was a boarder, was ac
cused of causing the death and tried, but
the evidence was not sufficient to fix the
crime upon him and he was acquitted.
The authorities then began a search for
Buchko, and his whereabouts would have
been kept a secret, but for a slight misad
venture on his part.
About a month ago uuchko was a wit
ness In a case In which William Savltka
figured. When tho case came for trial
Buchko failed to appear and Savltka was
cast Into prison. He vowrt at the time he
would get even with Buchko when he
