Twelfth Bituminous District:
ARMSTRONG, JEFFERSON, CLEARFIELD, CAMBRIA AND INDIANA
Submitted by Pennsylvania State Mine Inspector,Roger Hampson, in Punxsutawney, Pa.,dated March 7, 1902,
to the Hon. James W. Latta, Secretary of Internal Affairs, Harrisburg, Pa.
Sir: I have the honor of submitting the first annual report of this the newly formed Twelfth Bituminous District, for the year ending December 31, 1901.
From the tables it will be noted that the fatal accidents numbered twenty, and the non-fatal sixty, and in some cases these accidents were due to carelessness on the part of the victims themselves.
The general condition of the mines as a whole has been good; the mines have worked reasonably well during the year, and it will be noted that more than half of the production of coal in the district is cut by machines, the number of which is being steadily increased. A summary of the statistics, and the different tables will be found in their appropriate places in the report, which is respectfully submitted.
R. Hampson, Inspector.
Garman Ferris, Antonio Rabbie and Joseph Mancuse, miners, were instantly killed by a fall of slate while at work in a room in Walston No. 3 mine, February 12. The room had been driven up to a fault,and they were taking a skip off the pillar so as to strip the fault. The roof was dangerous, and the floor soft, and the noise of the machine at work prevented them from hearing the roof working, and before they could escape they were caught and killed
