May Take Two Weeks to Dig Out the Victims of Sunday's Cave-In. \Villtes liarre, Pa., .Inno -"J.—There were no new dovelopmi'm.s Monday mornina- at tiio Twin shaft of the .N'ew- t.oi) Coal company :it Piiuston. tho sci-nc of the torrihk' mine auoident. .Siip'-'i'inieiiilent Owens, of llie Exeter colliery, and Siiperinu'ixlent Thomas, of ilH-'Liiillin colliery, who wers: in the shaft nil nifrht dirc-cliiifr t' le rescuers, C.1UK-' 10 the surface ilondsiy morning'. From them it is learned that the work of rescuers toward ri'jiehinjr the entombed miners is progress!n;.' rapidly. Tiie timborinjf is p-oing- ii]i fast, and if the same progress is voiuimie-d for 24 hours the resruers will be right O'l the cave proper and then the'dig- S'iny will betrin. l!ow f<ir bejond or I'.mU-r this cave ilie men are ;:;:nnot of course be stated, and they do uot know how much iligirinpr will have to be "dyne, li the slope is KOI. entirely choked up progress will be much faster than if it is all falli-n. and upon this depends the length of time which will lie consumed before the bodies are reached. It may be two days or it may be two weeks. All Are L'nquestloimbly Doad. .Turno's Me.Mahon, one of llie bravest miners in the valley, crawled about the mine Monday morning, and it in claimed that ho was within G0'1 feet ,'rom where the unfortunate men nro supposed to be. lie colled out, to them on many occasions, but coulJ get no answer. That they ai-e all dead is beyond any further question. The twin shaft operated by the New ton Coal company has been a costly one to the owners for the past i\vo yenrs. The president of the. company is Frank E. Patterson, who was in Philadelphia. Sunday, when the accident occurred. He is now on the ground*. One of tho chief officials of a neighboring mine stated that heavy rains of the lasOfew days had caused water to go into the twin shaft and clowr. into the fifth vein, which caused the roof of the red ash. vein to become weakened and gtivc symptoms of a oave, and this neaessi- t.ited the timbering that was going on when the fall occurred. If it prove that the men are dead W women will be left widows and 200 children be fatherless. This is the most terrible mine accident which has occurred in the anthracite region since the great, disaster at Avondale. thin county, in ISOft. in which 120 lives were lost. Involution or Accident to Be Had*. Criticisms are alreudy numerous regarding the awful calamity, though it is 1oo soon to express opinions as to the possibility of having averted thia almost unprecedented accident or to |«ss criticism upon those who author- ised =o large a body of men to enter r. mine in so dangerous a condition. An official, investigation will follow, and i) is believed that it will in every respect be thorough und impartial. The several acts of the assembly for the safety of the men employed in the mines of this state provide an ample machinery for such on investigation, and the proper authorities will doubtless see to it that the provisions of. the law are put into full operation in this most distressing case. Drowned If Xot Killed. It was learned Monday afternoon from some of the miners coming out of the shaft that water hiid been pouring into the pit since Sunday morning. Near this shaft runs the Lackawanna and Susquehanna rivers, and also what is known as a river wash, which is located cr. the surface. The cave being just under this wash has affected the surface to sueh an extent that the water is pouring into the shaft. If the. men have not been killed by the falling of the mine roof, theyjiave cer- t.iinly been drowned by this time. , The oave was extending Monday afternoon. Fissures can be now seen on the surface, and no little excitement prevails in the neighborhood of the ill- fated slmft. To Bo Relegated to Fourth Cl«n».
