Nanticoke, Pennsylvania Susquehanna Coal
Company Mine Accident
CRUSHED UNDER TONS OF COAL.
WILKESBARRE, Penn. (Special).-- Three men
lost their lives in No. 1 shaft of the

Five men were engaged in driving a heading on a
plane some distance away from the main gangway
when there was a sudden rush of coal down the
plane, which caught the men. JOHN SHANNON, JOHN
JONES and GEORGE MORGAN, who were working at the
front, were crushed, their bodies being covered
by tons of rock and coal. The other two men
escaped with slight injuries.
