THE DEADLY FIRE DAMP
Claims Eight Victims at the Umpire Mine

OPEN LIGHTS FIRE THE GAS
An Investigation by the Coroner’s Jury Ends in Holding the
MINE OFFICIALS RESPONSIBLE

A Boy Operator Shut Off the Air Current When the Explosion Occurred.

CENES OF EX-citement and death reigned at Brownsville all week. One of the most terrible mine explosions in the history of the Monongahela river coal operations occurred in the Umpire mine of C. L. Snowden & Co., at 8 o’clock Friday morning. Two mine drivers, John Bennett and Harry Hager, were killed instantly and six others, Robert Davidson, John Heiston, Sales Heiston, William Pritchard, John Cartwright and James Bell were suffocated by the after-damp, which destroyed the living air immediately following the explosion. Pritchard was married and resided at West Brownsville. He leaves a wife and seven children. The Heiston’s were brothers, and colored. John Lived at Bridgeport and leaves a widow and two children. John Cartwright leaves a widow and three small children, who reside in Brownsville. The other men were single. Hager lived in Brownsville township and Davidson in a shanty not far from the fatal mine.

   The first information of the explosion came from George Lacy, John Smith, Samuel Meese and James G. Bennett, brother of one of the men killed. They were at work in the mine also, and as soon after the concussion of the explosion as possible they worked their way into the effected district and found the bodies of Bennett and Hager. From appearances it was believed that the drivers had gone into the entry and ignited an accumulation of gas. Open lights were used. Both bodies were burned somewhat, and also showed the effects of the concussion. Later the bodies of the other miners were discovered, in their rooms, where they had succumbed to the fatal lethargy that overtakes the senses when the oxygen has been burned out of mine air. As usual the bodies showed that the miners had not made any struggles. The explosion, as judged from the indications left on the side walls and roof of the mine, was strongest at the face of the heading, leaving the impression that the gas had been liberated at the face of the heading and worked its way out the entry.

   The party named as rescuers were working in an entry not more than 50 feet removed from the heading in which the explosion occurred, but they were uninjured, the air current leaving them pure air. Another group of miners, a little nearer the deadly explosion, heard the force of the gas as it ignited, and immediately started out. They were met by the after-damp and some wished to stop, but an experienced miner named John Ralston urged the men not to stop and finally the party worked its way out to safety. A large force of men volunteered to go into the mines immediately following the announcement that there had been an explosion, and by 11 o’clock A. M. all the bodies had been brought out of the mine. The scenes about the opening were heartrending. A great crowd gathered and many were the anxious faces that crowded about mourning about the loved ones who were known to be in the mine at the time of the explosion, and who were awaited, dead or alive, non knew which. When the accident occurred there were 120 men in the mine and the anxiety did not cease till all had been found. The explosion effects did not cover a wide territory in the mine, and after the eight bodies had been found no more casualties were found.

   Peter F. Smith, Coroner of Fayette county left Uniontown for the seat of the disaster and arrived early upon the scene. The officials of the United Mine Workers sent as their representative at the mine, Frederick Dilcher, from Pittsburg. Dr. Smith empaneled a jury consisting of E. L. Moorhouse, John A. Robinson, Henry Leonard, William L. Lenhart, Fletcher E. Chalfant and W. M. Fisher, who viewed the bodies Friday evening.

   The Coroner’s jury conducted a lengthy and exhaustive inquest over the remains of the victims of the disaster, and rendered the following verdict late Wednesday night:

   We find that John Bennett, John Cartwright, Harry Hagar, Robert Davis, William Pritchard, John and Silas Helston and James Bell came to their death by an explosion of gas in entry 10 of the Umpire mine of Friday, the 23rd of September, 1898, between the hours of 7 and 9 A. M., and our verdict is that had the proper mine officials, whose duty it was to remove the danger that was known to exist, fulfilled their duty, the accident would not have happened.

   During the inquest, at which Robert Brownlee, Chief of the Bureau of Mines was present, it developed that Raymond McCune, aged 13 years, was engaged to operate the fan, and that he had shut off the air current when the explosion occurred. Part of the time the fan was run by Corbin McCune, aged 14 years, the father of the boys starting it each morning.

   John T. Armstrong, formerly fire boss at the Umpire mines, but now employed at South Fork, Pa., said, “On the morning of March 21st, I pronounced the mine unsafe, put up ‘danger’ and told the men to stay out. Pit Boss Underwood said there was no danger in entries 5 and 6 and told the men to go to work.”

Joseph HAGERTY (1831-1917)

   Joseph Hagerty, one of the oldest residents of Monongahela, died last evening at 6:55 o'clock at his home in Chess St. in his 86th year. Funeral services will be held at the late home tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, interment, which will be private, occurring later in Monongahela Cemetery. The deceased was born March 14, 1831, in Fayette County, the son of William and Elizabeth (Johnson) Hagerty. He is the last member of a family of 14 children born to this union. In his early young manhood he learned the stonemason trade, which avocation he followed until his advanced age and declining health compelled him to relinquish his duties. On May 3, 1853, he was married to Miss Katherine Arison by Rev. Hickman at Uniontown. He resided in Fayette County for a few years, but about half a century ago he with his family removed to Monongahela where he has continued to reside. To this union three daughters and four sons were born, five of who survive: Mrs. J. K. Mancha, of Redds Mill, Mrs. F. B. Teeters, of Crafton, Frank J., of Pittsburgh, Clinton B., of Monessen, Bert E., of New Castle.

   The aged wife now in her 83rd year, also survives, but is in a serious condition from shock incident to the death of her aged husband and helpmate. The father of the deceased was born in County Down, Ireland, and immigrated to America when a young man, locating in Fayette County, and was one of the pioneer residents of that district. Joseph Hagerty was well and favorably known to all our residents, and when his health permitted was one of the familiar figures on our streets during his declining years. His last appearance was Thanksgiving two years ago, since which time he has been confined to his home. In politics he was a Democrat of the old school and he has held various offices in Monongahela. he was a charter member of the First Baptist Church of this city, and was present when the first sermon was preached in the present building after its completion by the Rev. Hargrave. He numbered his friends by the score and his demise has cast a gloom over many homes.

HAIR— Of Diptheria, August 8th, 1865, DANIEL S., aged 3 years, and of the same disease on the 24th of August, SARAH, aged 1 year and 6 months, both children of John and Anna Hair, of Dunbar township, Fayette County, Pa.

   Thus, in so short a time, did these afflicted parents yield those two (all they had) precious jewels to the Giver. It does seem to us they were too good for earth, hence they were taken to be with God and the angels. Sweet ones, your father and mother will be lonely without you, but ‘tis God has called you and they murmer not.


“:Those once-loved forms, now cold and dead,
 Each mournful thought employs;
We weep, our earthly comforts fled,
 And withered all our joys.

But, hope looks beyond the bounds of time,
 When what we now deplore

In Monroe, July 13th, Mrs. REBECCA, wife of German D. Hair, in the 67th, year of her age.
The deceased was a daughter of the late, Thos. Brownfield, and was born in Frederick County, Va., and  came to this place with her father's family in  1805*. She leaves a husband and a number of children as well as a very large circle of relatives and friends to mourn the loss of a devoted and faithful wife. A kind and loving parent, and an affectionate sister, companion and friend.  Her excellent traits of character and unusual kindness of heart were prominently manifested during a long and useful life, which was devoted unreservedly to the comfort and happiness of those committed by Providence to her care and protection.  In her the disconsolate always found a comforter, and the poor a friend.  She had never attached herself to any branch of the Christian Church, nor made any profession of religion; but during her last illness, endeavored to cast herself upon the mercy of God, and sought redemption and salvation through the merits of Jesus Christ—the only name given under Heaven whereby we can be save.

   Thus, in so short a time, did these afflicted parents yield those two (all they had) precious jewels to the Giver.

 Each mournful thought employs;
We weep, our earthly comforts fled,
 And withered all our joys.

But, hope looks beyond the bounds of time,
 When what we now deplore
Shall rise in full immortal prime,
 And bloom to fade no more.”

Henry Ray HALL ( -1961)

Death of Bullskin
Boy Investigated
by County Officer

   Fayette County Detective Oliver Lehtinen Thursday conducted an investigation into the death of Henry Ray Hall, 9, son of Mr and Mrs Henry Hall of Connellsville, R. D. 2, who died at 4 25 p m Wednesday in Connellsville State Hospital. Death had been listed as having been caused by an “intercranial hemorrhage” The detective aid the office of District Attorney John R Hoye was brought into the case in the wake of a “flood of wild rumors” about purported incidents preceding the boy’s death. His inquiry, he said, revealed that the boy, a fourth grade student in the Bullskin Township Elementary School, had participated with other boys in an impromptu football game and probably had been accidentally bumped on the head which could have brought on the hemorrhage. “We are awaiting complete medical findings in the wake of an autopsy,” Lehtinen said “There was no foul play, no attack by any or a group of boys. It appears from what we’ve learned that the fatal injury could have been sustained during a game at the school grounds during the noon recess Tuesday.” The detective said that the youngster’s face appeared to be slightly flushed when he returned to the classroom and the teacher asked him if he was feeling well. He assured her, the detective said, that he was allright and remained in his classes through the afternoon, going home as usual on the school bus. He became ill during the night and was taken to the hospital. Supervising Principal Albert A. Wingrove, questioned about the matter, provided information similar to that made public by the detective.

The deceased was an interesting little boy admired by all who knew him, for his childish sports, his prattling tongue and promising genius. The following beautiful lines of the Poetry Most assuredly portray the feelings of the parents who have been robbed of their brightest jewel. We shall miss him when the flowers come, In the garden where he played, We shall miss him more by the fire side, When the flowers have all decayed. We shall see his toys and his empty chair, And the stick he used to ride; And they will speak with a silent speech, Of the little boy that died.   Com.
