MINE DEATHS:

CORNELIUS O'BRIEN, a runner aged 16 years, employed at the Prospect colliery, met with a terrible death on Tuesday evening. He was engaged at the head of the slope unhitching the cars from the cable as they were drawn to the surface. As a trip came to the head he jumped on the car for the purpose of unfastening the cable. The engineer usually slackens up his engines so that the cable can be unhooked, but in this instance, for some reason which does not as yet appear, failed to do this, and the trip of cars was drawn at rapid speed into the woodwork of the hoisting house. The unfortunate boy was struck on the head by one of the timbers, and the whole top part of his head crushed. His death was instantaneous. The remains was removed to his residence at Miner's Mills.

JOHN TORRIGAN, of Pringle Hill, went into slope 4 of the D & H Coal Co, at Plymouth, yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of looking for work. While in the mines he failed to notice a trip of cars coming up behind him and was run down. One leg was cut off and he was otherwise badly mangled. He was removed to the residence of WILLIAM CLEARY, on Church St, where he expired two hours after his arrival. He was aged 58 years, and leaves a wife and four children, the latter all adults.

LOCAL AFFAIRS:

A FAMILIAR FACE: Among the horny fisted sons of toil attending the labor meeting is HUGH McGARVEY of Beaver Meadow. Hugh is an old-timer, and it is just as natural for him to act as secretary of labor conventions as it is for a fish to swim. Of late years he has been dispensing justice with the impartiality of the blind goddess and has come to be regarded as a terror to evil doers of his native heath. Being a man of a great deal of practical and theoretical knowledge, his services have always been regarded as valuable to the workingman. In the past he has been regarded as an "agitator", but time has broadened him considerably, and now he sees things through the mellow spectacles of experience and age
