A powder discharge which had failed to explode claimed the life of one man and seriously injured two others in the King Mine No. 1 at Hiawatha about 4 o'clock Monday morning. Gus Helsten, 31 was instantly killed and Mat Rauhaula, 50 and Arne Maine, 21 his companions suffered severe bruises and cut around the face and chest. Rauhaula was taken to Salt Lake by J. P. Russel, safety first engineer, Monday afternoon, while Maine was taken later. His condition was so serious he could not be moved sooner.
The men were working in the main tunnel, a mile and a half within the mine, when they picked into the powder, which evidently had been placed there some time ago by workmen while blasting.
