Inspector Conflrma Report Colliery

CHEYENNE), Wyo Aug. 1. (Special.)
State Coal Mine Inspector Noah Young's
report of -the Hsnna coal mine disaster of
March th, when fifty-nine men lost their
livts, and, causes of the accident, which
was fl'ed with Governor Bryant B. Brooks
yesterday, has created a terisatlon, snd c n
firms statements made from t'.me to time
In these dispatches that the Hanna colliery
has been pn fire for years, was a death
trap and should be permanently eloped.
Inspector Young charges the coal com
pany with greed In operating this mm,
with failure to comply with the state laws,
etc He says eighteen men lost their live

forty-one In the second accident on the
According to the Inspector's report fire
brcke out In Hanna mine No. 1 of the
I'nlon Paolflc Coal company on March 22,
1DG8; that Superintendent Brlggs and foices
of men fought the fire, and instead of brat
tic, ng It off with stone or some other
non-destructible material, which would
have extinguished the flames in from sixty
to ninety days, wood was used, which only
partially controlled the fire. As a result
the deadly white damp was produced, and
with large ouantltles In the workings, an
explosion was caused when Superintendent
Brlggs and seventeen men went in on
March 2f, and a second explosion when
Mine Inspector David Ellas and forty men
went In a few hours after the first ex
plosion. Inspector Young reports that the coal
company does not obey the laws, and: he
recommends that the statutory require
ments be more rigidly . enforced in the
future; that new and more stringent laws
be enacted by the next legislature. He alsi
recommends that the Hanna mine be closed
permanently, and no further effort be made
to recover the forty-five remaining bodies
therein, pointing out that all are probably
burned to an unrecognisable mass, so that
relatives would not kno-w whether they
were burying their own, or the relatives
of some one else. And, in all probability,
says the Inspector, mejiy of the bodies
were completely destroyed by the terrible
explosions that completely wrecked the colliery.
The report closes with recommendations
that the use of black powder In mines be
discontinued; also that coal mines should
not be operated until they have b en opened

device to save coal and lncreaae the
steam power of traction engines has been
Invented by C. II. Noyes or Omaha, who

power. He sought to overcome this and

be filled with nothing but "dry" steam,
which Increases the power of the engine
ami reduces the consumption of coal. A
machinery house here has become Inter
ested In the Invention and a patent has
just been applied for.
