    TUB NORFOLK NRWS : FRTD'AY , JANUARY 10,1002 ,
Buried Alive in Deep Shaft by
Sudden Cave-In.
SEVENTEEN ARE BELIEVED DEAD
iRescuret Are at Work , but There (
Little Hope the Men Will Be Found
Alive Only One of the Bodies la
Taken From the Ruins.
Negauneo , Mich. , Jan. 8. The most
distressing accident occurring In this
county for years occurred at the No-
.gauneo inlno yesterday noon , when by
A cavo-ln the lives of from 13 to 17
miners are thought to have been lost.
, The cave-In was nt the bottom of the
old shaft Had It occurred half an
hour sooner , about 150 men would
liavo been killed.
The names of the dead BO far as
known are : William Williams , John
Sullivan , John Pascoo , John Pearce ,
Jacob Hunlalla.
Thus far but ono body has been
taken out , that of Ilunlalla. Hundreds
of men are at the rnino eager to help
in the work of rescue , but It Is
thought the other bodies cannot bo
reached before 24 hours. John Basco
was rescued allvo and described the
twrecked mlno as follows :
"Wo were sitting around the pump
at the bottom of the shaft when , without -
out any warning , thousands of tons of
ore came down. I remembered no
inoro until I heard the sound of picks
and shovels in the hands of rescuers.
When found I was 75 feet from the
place where I was sitting and found
myself In a drift. How I got there is
n mystery , but can only bo accounted
for by the concussion of the wind. "
Prom the condition of the shaft It
would seem that the men are sur
rounded by a mass of dirt and broken
timber. A dull roar and the crashIng -
Ing of timbers gave to the men on the
surface the first Intimation of the dis
aster below. A rush was made for the
ehaft and when all had quieted down.
15 volunteers under Captain James
Piper descended In the cage In an at-
iempt to rescue. It was found , how
ever , that the shaft was badly dam
aged , It being Impossible to get with
in 100 feet of the level In which the
men were burled.
Cries for help were heard at the
lowest point reached , and the removal
of the timbers which blocked the
way found a man who shortly bctforo
the cave-In had started for the
surface. He was uninjured , but was
drenched to the skin and suffering
ereatly with cold. The man could
throw no light on the fate of his asso
ciates , the majority of whom ar
thought to be Italians and Flnlandors.
The steam pipes leading to the under
ground pumps were so damaged that
it would bo Impossible to operate the
pumps If It were possible to reach
them , and as the mine Is the wettest
i ; In the Iron country , the shaft Is mak
ing water fast.
A big force of rescuers , working In
relays , is making efforts to reach the
/ / damaged level before the water
reaches It.
