It is admitted on all hands that
every one of the nearly three hundred
miners who perished in the Cherry,
Illinois, mine, could have been saved
if they had been promptly warned of
their danger. But they continued
to work from half an hour to two
hours, totally oblivious of their
danger. John Mitchell suggests that
tbe equipment of mines with tele
phones would be tbe best safeguard
against tbe repetion of such calamities.
Not only could the men be warned of
any danger that threatened them, but
em ton) bed miners could oommunloate
with those on the outside, explaining
conditions tnd making valuable sug
gestions concerning their welfare.
