crash came and one of the principal
thoroughfares of the city is filled with
crevices, from which gas escaped in hugh
volumes. The owners of the houses aro
greatly alarmed. The men in the mines
had all they could do to escape with
their lives. Some of the mules were
caught in the workings and killed.
Eight hundred men and boys are thrown
out of work. The mine owners' loss
will be over $100,000. The loss to
property owners on the surface will be
double this amount.
