Herzog, on beintf warned of the danger, attempted to stop the fissure with concrete, but the flow of water was so strong that the concrete was washed out before it had time to set.

The mine is one of the oldest and largest in the Edwardsville district. It is operated by the City Coal Co. under lease from the Mount Olive and Staunton Coal Co. Some of the tunnels leading from the main shaft are more than two miles long, and many of them extend under Edwardsville. The mine ;s 200 feet deep.

Unless the fissure could be closed, the mine examiner said he feared the iak wouid be drained Into the mine. There la enough water In the lake to completely flood the mine. Krtkiakr la California.
