28 MEN BURIED – TERRIBLE CAVE-IN – SCENES OF WILDEST EXCITEMENT IN ASHLEY

The following miners and laborers are now imprisoned in Baltimore, No. 4

shaft, at Ashley, Lehigh & Wilkes-Barre Coal Co.  Whether they will ever

again see the light of day no one knows but their creator:

JOHN HANSON, ANTHONY FRAIL, MICHAEL SCALLY, JOHN SCALLY, JOHN ALLEN

(assistant mine boss), MICHAEL HENRY, CHARLES JAMES, FRANK GALLAGHER, ROBERT

ROBERTS, HARRY JONES, ELLIS WILLIAMS, OWEN WILLIAMS, DANIEL SULLIVAN, THOMAS

WILLIAMS, JOHN PENNING, HARRY PARRY, OWEN PARRY, THOMAS CLAUS, JOHN JAMES,

two Hungarians name GUSS, two Hungarian laborers, and four others whose

names could not be obtrained.

            At about 9 o’clock this morning, the residents of that part of Ashley

borough known as Maffett’s Patch were thrown into a state of intense

excitement by a violent shaking of the earth and a cracking and tottering of

their homes.  They rushed frantically into the streets in alarm to ascertain

the cause.  When it had dawned upon them that a cave-in had taken place in

No. 4 slope, and that the ground was fast settling about them, the

excitement knew no bounds.  Women who had husbands and sons working in the

mine ran here and there screaming and wringing their hands while helpless

little ones clung desperately to them begging pitiously for the help they

were seemingly unable to give.

            Maffett’s Patch is located nearly a mile from the business part of Ashley.

It is built upon a pretty plateau and runs back to the foot of the mountain.

It is completely honey-combed by the workings underneath, and reports to the

effect recently the company has been robbing the pillars have been freely

circulated.

            A gang of men was quickly got together and at 11 o’clock they began

throwing up the earth at a point a few hundred yards back of the old Preston

school house, and within sight of the place where the miners came through

the opening from their six day’s imprisonment at Sugar Notch eleven years

ago.

            Among those whose houses were affected by the cave-in were: E J CAMPBELL,

FRANK POCALKO, JOSEPH MARGOT, Mrs ANTHONY MCCORMACK, JAMES TREDDINICK and

JOHN RUTZ (whose houses were very badly wrecked).  The rear wall of CAMPBELL

’s place may fall at any moment, while RUTZ’s residence is split through the

centre, the opening at the base being at least 18 inches wide.

            The names of those who are involved in rescue are: VALENTINE GORHAM, THOMAS

OWENS, JAS. TREDDINICK, EVAN JONES, DAVID EDWARDS, OWEN HUGHES, JOHN CLEARY,

JOHN X JONES, JOHN DAVIS, HARRY PENNING, PATRICK DORAN, JAMES KEEGAN, JOSEPH

KILDAY, JOHN MCDONOUGH, JOHN JONES, HUGH LESLIE, JAMES L CAFFREY, ANTHONY

GAUGHAN, THOMAS GRADY, MICHAEL MCDONALD, THOMAS ROONEY, THOMAS FLYNN,

MICHAEL CUSICK, JAMES MCDONALD, ROGER FLYNN, FRANK GALLAGHER, JACOB DECKER,

and DAVID RICHARDS.

            A gang of eight or ten work until they are exhausted , when they are

immediately replaced by a new crew.  The uppermost question discussed by the

men who are watching the work of rescue – and they are principally men who

have been employed in and around the mines all their lives – is whether the

“fall” is of such nature as to allow sufficient air to ooze through, or of

sufficient quantity to keep the men alive until the rescuing party reaches

them.

            The cave-in is only a short distance from the point where the six miners  -

JOHN CLARK, BERNARD RILEY, JOHN GREEN, DANIEL GREEN, DANIEL HAWKINS, and WM

PRICE,  - were imprisoned in like manner during the month of April 1879, and

who subsisted  on mule meat for six days when they were reached by a

rescuing party and found in good health, and little worse for the hazardous

experience.  [condensed]

ASHLEY MINE DISASTER - 28 MEN DEAD

The gloomy day of May 16, 1890 will be recalled in years to come by the

people of Ashley with a shudder.  Early this morning the fate of the men

buried in No. 4 slope, Lehigh & Wilkes-Barre Coal Co., became known.

Twenty-eight men who entered the mine strong and healthful yesterday are now

among the dead.  It was not given them to die peacefully, surrounded by

ministering friends and with the comforting words of the clergyman sounding

in their ears.  They were penned in the bowels of the earth and were

smothered or burned to death by deadly gas.  There are new vacancies now at

firesides and the familiar form will no more enter the door of home after

the day is over.  The rescuers came upon the bodies of most of the victims

at 8 o'clock this morning after many hours work, three having been taken out

last night.  Slowly the remains were lifted and tenderly born out.  The dead

removed are:  JOHN ALLAN, assistant mine boss, SIMON PURVY, THOMAS E DAVIS,

OWEN PARRY, THOMAS WILLIAMS, OWEN WILLIAMS, CHARLES JAMES, ELLIS D WILLIAMS,

HENRY J PARRY, OLIVER PARRY, JOHN HANSON, HENRY JONES, DANIEL SULLIVAN,

JOSHUA WILLIAMS, RICHARD JONES, JOHN E DAVIS, ______  GUSS, two unnamed

workers.  These bodies are not yet recovered: MICHAEL HENRY, ROBERT

PRITCHARD, THOS D CLAUSS, MICHAEL SCALLY, JOHN SCALLY, STEPHEN EDWARDS, JOHN

EDWARDS, RICHARD L JONES, and a worker named GUSS.  About six o'clock last

evening one man, ANTHONY FRANE, was found alive.  FRANE's hands were

considerably blistered and his face burned, but not nearly as bad as was

first expected.  He suffered considerably from injuries sustained by the

force of the explosion.  Also found alive was ROBERT ROBERTS, who was so far

recovered that late last night he gave Dr James an account of his experience

while in the mine after the cave-in and the explosion.  Later were found the

bodies of THOMAS E DAVIS, who is a married man living on Hartford street,

with nine children, three of whom are married; OWEN PARRY, age 20, son of

HARRY PARRY; THOMAS WILLIAMS, aged 40, married one child; OWEN WILLIAMS,

married with four children; CHARLES JAMES, married and six children; ELLIS D

WILLIAMS, tracklayer, married seven children; HENRY J PARRY, married, five

children; OLIVER PARRY, son of HENRY PARRY; JOHN HANSON, single; HENRY

JONES, married and three children; DANIEL SULLIVAN, married and six

children; JOSHUA WILLIAMS, married and family; JOHN E DAVIS, married and

family.  There were others unidentified whose bodies were taken to the

schoolhouse morgue.  It had been reported that JOHN X JONES was among those

imprisoned ones.  This fortunately proved erroneous, and the old veteran was

among those who assisted in getting to the victims.  THOMAS CONROY, MICHAEL

COONEY, and MICHAEL WARD would have doubtless been among the victims, had

they not remained away from the works to attend mass, it being Ascension

Day. [condensed]

 

 

DEATHS:

W S STACKHOUSE, a brakeman on the Lehigh Valley railroad died at 9:30 this

morning in City Hospital.  Early this morning his train parted near

Fairview.  He in some way fell under the wheels, and his right foot was cut

off.  When he was brought to the hospital amputation was performed, but the

patient was so weak from loss of blood that he could not survive the

operation.

 

The shock to Mr and Mrs B W OPDYKE of the death of Mrs OPDYKE’s mother, Mrs

PURSEL, had come only last week, and now their promising little son of

little more than four summers is dead from diphtheria, after an illness of

two weeks.  A brief funeral service was held this afternoon at the residence

of the family, 189 Academy Street, and then the remains were taken to

Berwick for interment.

 

Ex-county Treasurer TURNBACH died early this morning at his home in Freeland

after a long sickness.  He was 50 years old.

 

 

ANOTHER MINE ACCIDENT:

MIKE SMARZLICK was badly crushed in the West End Coal Co’s mine at Mocanaqua

this morning.  He was brought to the hospital in this city.

 

 

ELSEWHERE:

It is stated that Gilbert & Sullivan have quarreled and will compose no more

operas together

DEATHS:

L C PAINE died from congestion of the brain, an attack of which, was super

induced by Bright’s disease of the kidney’s.  Deceased was born at Perth

Amboy, NJ  March 26, 1827 and was 63 years of age.  He was a son of Captain

Jedediah Paine.  Under his father’s command he became familiar with the life

and duties of a seaman – was trained to it from his infancy.  At the age of

fifteen years he was an officer on his father’s vessel and visited many

ports in the world.  In 1846 Mr Paine came to Wilkes-Barre on a visit.

While here he became employed by the late Col H B Hillman at the latter’s

mines in Nanticoke.  In 1847 he married MARY CAMPBELL LEE, a daughter of

JAMES S LEE, and a niece of Col WASHINGTON LEE.  They then removed to Perth

Amboy.  Mr PAINE then returned to the sea.  In 1853 he returned to Nanticoke

and entered the mercantile business with his brothers-in-law WASHINGTON LEE,

Jr, and ANDREW LEE.  In the same year his wife died and their son, WILLIAM L

PAINE survived.  In 1857 he gave up the mercantile business and came to

Wilkes-Barre, entering the grocery business.  In this year he married for

the second time, ANNIE E LEE, of Chester County, who survives him, as do

their daughters, Mr Dr WORDEN and Miss PRISCILLA PAINE.  At the time of his

death, he was a vestryman of St Stephens.  The deceased was a descendant of

THOMAS PAINE, who participated actively in the formation of one of the

earliest companies of pilgrims to Massachusetts’s Bay in 1621.  The family

is traced back to the eleventh century.  [condensed]

 

 

THE ASHLEY MINE DISASTER CONTINUED:

Five more corpses were recovered at Ashley: MICHAEL SCALLY, ROBERT

PRITCHARD, HENRY W JONES, MICHAEL HENRY, and an unidentified Hungarian

laborer.  It was thought yesterday afternoon that one of the victims

recovered was that of HENRY JONES, though the relatives of THOMAS CLAUSS

claimed the remains.  The body however was taken to the home of JONES, but

they have since been exchanged.
