The subject of this notice, Miss ELIZA BARTON, daughter of Roberts Barton, Esq., of this place, died on Saturday Evening, the 19th inst., aged 23 years, and her remains, attended by an unusually large concourse of sympathizing friends, were interred on Sabbath evening. The disease which thus prematurely ended her mortal career was pulmonary. During her protracted and painful illness she manifested a spirit of meekness and resignation to the will of him whose word says, “My grace shall be sufficient for you.” Indeed, ever after she put on Christ, and became a professed follower of the Son of God, her faith was unwavering, her deportment mingled cheerfulness and humility, and her attachment to the Church ardent and sincere. She made a public profession of her faith and was baptized and received into the fellowship of the Baptist Church in Uniontown about three years and five months since, the good Shepherd and Bishop of her soul having, as we humbly trust inclined her heart to his delightful service, that she might be made “Mete for the inheritance of the saints in light.” Those who knew her best, who saw the peaceful fruits of righteousness produced by the regenerating and sanctifying influences of the holy spirit, and which were especially manifest in her peaceful and triumphant death, can truly say, ‘O death, where is thy sting! O grave, where is thy victory! Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.’ Like the great apostle, when death drew near, she said, “I am ready to depart.” And again, “I hope the time will be short, and the struggle soon over,” and sweetly her spirit passed away. Oh blessed hope! That cheers and illumes even the dark valley of death! The sadly bereaved relatives and numerous friends (for who so lovely, so amiable, so good, but is admired and loved by all the virtuous) may now raise the eye of faith toward heaven, and there behold the gentle, fond departed, welcomed to the mansions of eternal rest. No mark or sickness, sorrow, pain nor death; for neither enters where God has wiped away all tears; but clothed in ever blooming youthful health and beauty, where joys are forevermore – “Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” S. H. R.

UNIONTOWN, July 6— Four men were blown to pieces by an explosion of accumulated mine gas as they were dismantling, with the use of acetylene torches, the fan house at the abandoned Tower Hill No. 1 plant of Hecla Coal & Coke Company at 7:15 o’clock this morning. Three others, who only a few minutes before had walked from the scene, escaped a similar fate.
Basha, a wrecker, was tearing down the buildings at the Tower Hill plant and the other men were employed by him in razing the property. The four, killed instantly and their bodies blown to bits, were inside the fanhouse, dismantling it. They were using acetylene torches when there was an explosion. Authorities were inclined to believe mine gases had gathered under the farm house and were touched off by the open torches.
It was only through a stroke of luck that three others’ including sons of the victims, escaped death. Just a short time before they had been sent for another tank of gas for the acetylene torch. They were on top of a hill about 150 yards away when the blast tore the tile fan house to pieces and sent fragments of the bodies in all directions.
Those who escaped were George Murray, Jr., 21; Albert Basha, Jr., 15, and Francis Umbel, 21. The trio ran back to the scene to find the mangled bodies of the four victims, including fathers of two of them. The remains of Mr. Basha were found 100 yards away; those of Mr. Moyer flattened against a building 50 yards distant; those of Mr. Murray 100 yards to the west and those of Mr. Coddington 100 yards to the east in a nearby field.
The body of Mr. Moyer was battered beyond recognition. The other bodies were mutilated but identification of faces was possible. The force of the explosion shattered windows in nearby dwellings and awakened persons who were still asleep. Coroner S. A. Baltz and other officers are making an investigation into the cause.
Mr. Moyer was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moyer of Morgantown road. He was a graduate of the South Union Township High School in the Class of 1936. For the last three years he had been employed by Mr. Basha. He is survived by his parents and three sisters, Mrs. Laverna Smith and Ellen and Annabell Moyer.
UNIONTOWN, July 7— Official inquiry is being conducted into the four-death explosion at the Tower Hill No. 1 mine early Thursday morning. Mine officials gathered at the shaft and went over the situation most minutely in the presence of State Motor Police who are keeping a crowd of curious spectators back. It was estimated several thousand persons visited the scene Thursday. A barbed-wire barrier has been erected and watchmen were on duty all night. Removal of a four-inch ventilating pipe from the concrete seal over the abandoned air shaft was cited as probable cause of the devastating explosion which cost the lives of four men. Ten minutes after seven men had gone to work to dismantle the fan house at the abandoned workings of Hecla Coal & Coke Company, there was an explosion. Three of the group had only a few minutes before left the scene to get a tank of gas for the acetylene torch being used and thereby were saved a similar fate. Accumulated mine gas was believed to have been set off by the open acetylene torch and the explosion blew the quartet to bits.
George Gladden Murray, one of four killed, was a son or the late I. J. and Jane Murray of Morgan Station and had resided there for number of years. He was a brother of Mrs. Robert R. Boyd of Morrell avenue, Connellsville, and for about 25 years had been located at Masontown. He was given the middle name of Gladden for the late Rev. William H. Gladden, who was pastor of the Hickory Square Methodist Church when Mr. Murray was born. He was twice married, his first wife, the former Ada Beatty of Broad Ford, preceding him in death. Later he married Sylvia Chain of Scottdale. Besides his wife and sister, Mrs. Boyd, he is survived by the following children: Oliver, Fairmont, W. Va.; Kenneth, Masontown; Alma Jean, Morgantown, W. Va.; Ruth, Robert, George, Jr., Kathleen, Dorothy, Charles and Gladden, at home.

Michael Basista, 21, of Allison Heights, was killed late last night when his automobile left the highway near Merrittstown and overturned. He was found sometime later by Brashea Talbert and John Bucheck of Allison and rushed to the Brownsville General Hospital, but was dead upon arrival at 1:45 o'clock this morning.
Details of the accident were missing, there have been no witnesses. The theory was, however, that Basista riding alone, had been fatally hurt when his car left the highway and overturned. Just how long he had been exposed to the weather was not known.
Talbert and Bucheck were passing the point and noticed the wreckage. They investigated and discovered Basista inside, rushing him to the hospital. He had suffered a fractured skull.

Dr. Baum was a native of Uniontown and for 28 years, following his graduation from medical school, had practiced his profession in this city.

Members of the Fayette County Medical Society, of which he was an active and honored member, will be the honorary pallbearers at his funeral which will be held this afternoon.
Dr. Baum was the son of the late Mex and Sarah Rosenbaum Baum and was born in Uniontown on March 18, 1875. He received his early education in the Uniontown schools and later graduated in medicine from the University of Pennsylvania medical school. He early won recognition in his profession while his devotion to his calling, his spirit of service and zeal in ministering to those who called upon him for professional treatment regardless of race or creed or wealth or poverty established a great following which was reflected, too, in public esteem and public service. He served as coroner of Fayette county for two terms, 1926 to 1924, succeeding State Senator Harry J. Bell in that office. He was always active in politics, being a Republican and ever keenly interested in his party and its affairs. He was recognized as an important political leader in his party.
Dr. Baum was a member of the Temple Israel congregation and took an active though unassuming part in the affairs of his church. He was a member of the Fayette County Medical Society in which he took great interest. For many years he was a member of the staff of the Uniontown Hospital. He was a member of Fayette Lodge No. 288, F. and A. M., and of B. P. O. Elks Lodge No. 370, both of this city.
In addition to his widow, Mrs. Lollie Hannock Baum, Dr. Baum is survived by two sisters, Mrs. L. S. Hirsch of Uniontown and Mrs. Josef Pollach of New York City.

Mark the Tragic Deaths
Of Women In California
So many friends and relatives of Mrs. Joseph Beal, who with a friend
was killed in an auto accident at Riverside, Cal., reside in and about
Fayette county that the letter of a son of the unfortunate woman is printed in full
It is an interesting letter and was written by Emmet Beal to Miss Anna
Beal, a sister of George W. Beal of New Salem. The letter was brought
to The News Standard office by B.G. Beal of New Salem. The lad in
California avoided details of the sad accident, they having been told
However, his is a most unusual epistle and is as follows:
Riverside, Cal., Jan 5, 1915
Dear Aunt:---I will try to write you a few lines to tell you of the
accident and funeral. I will not explain the accident as I did in Uncle Brice's
letter. Mamma passed away at 5:45 and Mrs. Glover at 7:20. Neither moved
a muscle after they struck the ground. Papa was not hurt to speak of. Both
women had fractured skulls.
Each was 62 years of age and had the same friends in and out of church.
Each had three children. They were married the same month, were in the
same church and the same class.
The funeral was double from the M.E. church at 2 p.m., Monday. The
caskets were both steel gray, one on each side of the pulpit. And the
friends brought flowers enough to cover the whole front of the church. An auto
truck took a load of flowers from the church to the graves. After the services
they started both caskets at the same time, one up each aisle to the hearse.
Then they formed a double line to the graves, the hearses side by side and each
family following their own mother.
Their graves were about 40 feet apart and there was only one service at
the church and graves. The church was full to the back seat and the friends
furnished autos for all. The caskets were not opened at the church but the bodies had
lain in the state at their homes from 2 until 5 o'clock, Sunday, one just across the street from the other.
More than 250 of mamma's friends called to see her for the last time, with flowers for her and sympathy for us. If mamma could only see what the friends have done for her and us. But still we are lonesome for her. We can hardly realize what has happened, all done so quick. But as the minister said, they were faithful workers in the church and Sunday school and we feel they were ready to go. Of course, we are all old enough to make company for each other, but there is one missing.
We haven't thought what we will do yet, but will all stay together.
Well I will close, hoping this will find you all well. With much love from Joe and family,

Br. Bassett: As mention is made in your publication of April 21st, of the late demise of our dear father, I am reminded of his request whilst on a sick bed, that I should write a short obituary on his decease, and send for publication in the W. N. protestant, I briefly comply.
The subject of this notice bade adieu to earth on Saturday, March 6th, 1858, after a severe bodily affliction of fourteen days. It seemed evident from the first attack both to himself and friends, that his sickness was unto death, but he was calm, resigned, and “sunk into the will of God,” expressing however a desire to “depart and be with Christ” yes, it became apparent to all for the last few months of his life, that he was doing up his last work for his labors were so incessant for the salvation of the people that he “cried aloud and spared not,” and many were added to the church under his endeavors to do good in this community; he was a strong advocate of “mutual rights” and republican principles.—Father was a native of Ireland, from which country he emigrated to America about the year 1820, settled first in Pennsylvania, (Fayette co.) lived there several years and labored as a Exhorter in the Presbyterian church (O. S.) from thence removed to Illinois, where he settled in Marshall county, and resided for over twenty years, in which time he thought proper to unite with the M. E. Church, and proclaim a free salvation. In connection with this branch of the church he labored faithfully as a exhorter until the Methodist Protestants came round, and not being satisfied with the M. E. Church Polity, he sought the first opportunity to enlist under the banner of Mutual Rights, under which he labored as a licensed exhorter ever since, except the last year, when by solicitation of the friends of Christ’s cause on Waverly mission, he consented to be licensed to preach. He was a member of the church militant for nearly sixty years.—He lived to a good old age, being nearly seventy-eight years of age. Well might he sing, as he often did,
|Our bondage here shall end,|
|By and by, By and by.|
Father Beatty was one who believed in a religion of life an power and he preached it.—That religion that renders its possess, or peace and comfort, at home and abroad, on the land, on the sea. For he had tried it under all those circumstances. Often has the writer heard the subject of this notice speak of the scene and trial of taking a father by the parting hand when he left Ireland for a far distant shore, even the land of the free, and how he promised to meet him in heaven. And then again the trial of having to part with an interesting child whilst on the ocean, and throwing it overboard, to be devoured by fishes. But he believed in a general Resurrection, when the sea will give up its dead, also. O, what a comfort to the Christian—even the doctrine of a “Better resurrection.”
Farewell, then, dear father, for awhile—we hope to see thee again. O that his children (six sons and one daughter) may imitate his example, and follow him as he followed Christ. Funeral sermon by Rev. J. White, of the M. El. Church, from Philippians 1st chap. and 23d v. to a large audience in our new church.

William D. Beatty of Dunbar was almost instantly killed, Wednesday evening at 5:30 o’clock when he was struck by Baltimore & Ohio passenger train No. 63 at a grade crossing at Pechin, near Dunbar. Mr. Beatty, who was employed by his father, John T. Beatty, also of Dunbar, proprietor of a custom coal mine at that place, attempted to drive his truck, loaded with coal, over the crossing immediately after a freight train had passed. The passenger train was following close and the victim failed to notice it. He was dragged by the pilot of the engine 47 rail lengths or about 1,300 feet. The truck was demolished. He died a few minutes after the accident. It was found that he had a fractured skull. He was 27 years old. Mr. Beatty was enroute from his father’s mine with a load of coal for the United Refractories Company of Dunbar, when the mishap took place. He was the only occupant of the car.
Mr. Beatty was born September 14, 1897, at Vanderbilt and lived practically all of his life there. Being of pleasing personality, he made a host of friends. “Bill” as he was known to all of the residents, was a comedian and was proclaimed to be one of the leading in the county. He took part in the minstrels staged by Emery Lewis Pratt Post of the American Legion as an end man and his work was praised by critics. About five years ago he married Miss Ada Shelkey of Star Junction, who survives with three children, Robert G., John W. and Donald Wayne.
Several years ago, Mr. Beatty and his wife moved to Star Junction where they resided until about six months ago when the family located at Dunbar. They changed their place of abode, after his parents sold their property at Vanderbilt and went to Dunbar where Mr. Beatty had purchased coal.
Besides his parents and wife and children, one brother, J. C. Beatty, mail carrier of Vanderbilt, and two sisters, Mrs. Francis Barricklow of Herbert and Miss Clarissa Beatty of Washington, D. C., a graduate of the Dunbar Township High School, survive.
The body was removed to the funeral home of J. T. Burhans of Dunbar, and then to the home of his parents in the Victor Apartments. The funeral arrangements have not been completed.

Close to 900 persons gathered at James Cochran Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church at Vanderbilt, of which deceased was a member, where the services were held. The casket was opened at the church and the friends filed by in a single line to gaze upon the countenance of one of their best friends for the last time. It required 30 minutes for the persons to pass. The church with a seating capacity of 500 was filled to capacity with standing room crowded. About 300 persons were unable to make their way into the church.
Rev. G. E. Buhan, pastor of the Vanderbilt Church and Rev. O. W. Bolton and Rev. Theodore Miner of Dunbar were in charge. The pallbearers were Ralph Cavalcante, W. A. Reed, C. K. Shallenberger, David Foltz, Lester Barricklow and Bryan Newmyer, all of whom were close friends of Mr. Beatty. The last four took part in the last Legion minstrel with Mr. Beatty.
Floral tributes were many and beautiful.
