DL'ST IN COAL MINES.
r.sieclallv in Foreign Mines It Is n
Source nl ('rent Danger.
Mine Inspector G. M. Williams, w-ho
with Superintendent Morgan R. Mor
gans recently returned from Wales,
made a tour of Inspection of the Welnli
sc'in-nnihrncite collieries and made a
study of the workings. Mr. Williams
brought with him n number of books
with relation to the Welsh mines and a
number of reports of Inspectors issued
A Record representative yesterday
asked Mr. Williams why in his opinion
Clint accidents in the Welsh mines are
so much more frequent and disastrous
than in the anthracite mines of this
region, and ho staled that the Welsh
ii'incs nre deeper and the workings are
longer nnd It is harder for a b uly of
men to escape. The Welsh mines are
nlno tilled with very line dust, wh'ch
is agitated by these explosions, nnd 111 -miners
in nltemptlng to i scape breathe
this dust und are suffocated. Tills, in
Mr. Williams' opinion, is the cause of
u great ninny deaths. The dust In the
ni'r.es of this region is heavier and is
ni t so great a source of danger.
