The Explosion Occurs
While Men Are Be
ing Lowered Into
Mine at Scranton
ALL DROP 100
FEET TO BOTTOM
Miraculous Escape of Driver Boss in
Cage When Latter Is Ripped to
Pieces and All the Occupants Hurled
Down Shaft
By Associated Press.
Scranton, Pa., Dec. 9.-r-Thirteen
mine workers wore killed in the Dia
mond shaft of the Delaware,
wanna and Western Company here to
day when a box of dynamite being low
ered into the mine with fourteen men
exploded, wrecking the descending car
riage and dropping the victims to the
bottom of the shaft. The one man who
escaped alive is Martin Belinski, a
driver boss.
The accident occurred when the men
were #oing to work and at a time when
the entrance to the mine was crowded
with men waiting to be lowered to the
various levels. There is always a
scramble among the men to get on the
carriage and for this reason the -number
of men who were on the cage and their
identity was not known for several
hours after the accident.
The carriage hands descended toi
about 100 feet from the bottom of the
shaft when from some unknown cause
the dynamite exploded. The cage was
ripped to pieces and all the men were
dropped into the water and mine refuse
at the bottom of the shaft. The es
cape of the driver boss is considered
almost miraculous by the mine officials.
It was an hour before th e first vic
tim's body was recovered. Nearly all
the victims were badly mangled ant
some were torn to pieces, showing thatl
they were instantly killed by the ex
plosion.
The news of the accident spread rap
idly. The part of the city in which!
the mine is located is less than half 3
mile from the business center. Thoui
sands gathered at the head of the shaft.
The field about the place filled with
women and children imploring news
concerning the victims'.
Among the victims was Thomas
Thomas, of West Scranton, a veteran
miner, who was so decrepit that he
was helped into the carriage by one of
the men who descended with him,
STEPS TAKEN FOR
A NEW HOSPITAL
Continued From First Page.
tablishment is the only logical solution
for reducing the expense incident to
the maintenance and treatment of per
sons suffering from contagious diseases
and also the maintenance of the fami
lies of such patients while they are uu
der quarantine.
With a municipal hospital estab
lished, patients will be committed to
the institution upon their ailments Tid
ing diagnosed as contagious and the
homes of the patients will be fumi
gated and disinfected. The members
of their family will not be placed un
der quarantine. Under the present sys
tem the patients remain in the house
and the county and the city health de
partment are compelled to finance the
treatment of the patients, as well as
maintain the families.
Present System Expensive
This has been very costly, especially
to the county, which during tiie first
eleven montfhs of this year expended
$1,300 for maintenance of quarantined
families. That does not include the*
cost of coal furnished to families and
it is exclusive of what was allowed to
the families after th« quarantine was
lifted. In practically every case called
to the attention of the Directors of tho
Poor this year it was found necessary
to award families maintenance orders
for three or more weeks after the
quarantine was taken off ami until the
head of the family got back to work.
One case alone, tho Poor Directors
declare, cost the county $ 178.83. Tho
patient was n woman, who lives alone,
and whose illness, it is said, did not
•compel her to take to her bed. Spe
cially prepared meals were sent to her
from a hotel.
Nine of the eleven members of a
family in the village of Paxton, Uppier
Paxton township, until a short time ago
were confined to bed with contagious
diseases. That condition existed for'al
most six weeks and cost the county
i much money. The cost of maintaining
families, while one or more of the mem
bers are suffering from it contagious
disease, has, during the last several
months, averaged S6O a week. At no
time during the year has the weekly
cost dropped below $lO, the Directors
of the Poor say.
Whether a new hospital will he built
or quarters opened in the Dauphin
county almshouse will not be deter
mined for several weeks. Dr. Raunick
to-day eiidorsed the movement and
added that his department will, in so
far ,as his annual budget will permit,
render financial assistance. The same
is true of the charitable societies.
