Harrlsburg, .Mav 1.". The leglslathe
committee i (presenting' the anthracite
miners, which is here In the Interest
of several incisures before the legis
lature affecting the niineis, was thrown
into a lluiry tonight by the action of
Senator Heldelbaugh, of kancusler
county, chairman of the senate mining
eoniinhtee. In having iwo of the mln
is' bill le-eommltied to his coimull
tee. l.as( week the nilneis' eommit
tee by a tin eat to have the undei--gioiuul
worlcei.s inarch on llatrlsbiiig,
succeeded In having three of the bills
leported fiom the committee. The two
bills reported" back to the committee
tonight provided for Ihe Increasing of
the number of mine Inspectois tioin
eight to sixteen and that they be elect
ed by the people of the anthracite
counties, and also for the weighing nt
coal heroic it was screened. Mr. Held
elb.nigh's reason for le-commltting the
bills was for Ihe pin pose of making
"slight amendments." but he would
not stale further what tin: amendments
were. The milling committee met im
mediately after the adjournment, but
took no action, and another meeting
will be held tomouow morning. It
was subsquently learned that one pio
posed amendment provided that the
present mine Insjiectors be not dis
till bed until their terms cpliv, an
other that the tetnis of the Inspectois
be increased from three to live years,
and that another amendment pt oxides
that only a certain number be elected
each year, so that a number shall hold
That there ma be another great
stiihe In the anthracite eo.tl regions Is
not outside the lange of possibility In
the nejr future. In the Semite mining
committee there is another bill which
provides that the mlneis be paid u
inte pei ton Instead of a rate pel tar.
Tlds bill, along with othets, was ap
pi oved by the miners in comention at
llazletou. ami T. P. Nicliolls, of Sciuli
lon, president ol District No. 1, of the
rniled Mine Workeis of America, snys

ciated Presit representative tonlghl:
"If the legislature does nol pass till1)
bill or the eti.il opeiatois do not make
some eonecHslons along- the lines laid
tloii In th" bill, it Is my opinion that
a stiike wilt be Inauguiated In the
tonl regions which will be greater In
numbers than the stiuggle of last fall.
My district Is a unit on the preposition
lli'ul the mln-is be paid by the Ion
liiHlead of bv the car. District No. ?

The fleorges Cieck company has
beadijiiarters In the Kqultable huild
liig. Haltlmore, and extensive mining
Interest in Maiylantl. This Is the Hi si
mine the company lias opened in this
stute anil fully $1,000.1)00 bus been In
vested and the mine is ono of the best
equipped In the Kalrniounl coal region.
Colonel It. I.. Homervllle, an experi
enced and capable mine supetlntend
enf, has charge of the works. The
mine was onlv recently jiut in opem
tlon nuil about 125 men were employed,
only forty of this number underground.
Owing to a short ay In the car supply
the men have only been making about
half tlmn for several clays, but yester
day quite a number of cms weie left
in the .nine .-u.l the ma..tgemenf de
cided to break all records with today's
output. So, bright nnd early this
inclining the miners, who reside In
t o.y cottages on the lll-top above tho
mine, made their way to tlnf mulii
opening and the car carried tlieni 2.10
feet into tlie earth. Fifteen of them
were assigned to a portion of tlie mine
that has been worked for' some time
arid the remainder were put to work
on headings quite a distance away.
One ot the men In the looms. It Is
aliened, lui'l smuggled a toieh into thr
mines, us- a ghes so much better light
than the stitet lamps pieseilbed by
the co'mpany. There Is an immense fan
which sends live thousand leet of fresh
air Into the mines at cveiy revolution,
and as the shall wns considered one of
the safest In the region the miner did
not heed the frequent winnings of a
fellow employe, who warned him of tho
risk he was taking. At 9.11 the mini r
died u shot and the smoke, which wii
very dense, caught lire fiom the torch
nnd spread to either the gas or dust
and the explosion ic.sUlted. Fortunate -Iv,
the mine did not catch tire to auv
extent. The eploslou vented Itself
tliiough the iili'-shatl and almost de
molished Hie building on the surface In
which the fan Is located. The men in
tlie headings did not know there hud
been all explosion until uolllleil. Tie
air was soon turned in, ami in a short
time the headings weie cleared of foul
gases .md the woik of rescue of the un
toi tunnies commenced, Il was .1 o'clock
before the woik was t niitiuded. This
is the most seilous explosion that ever
occuiied in the Fail-mount coal region
