The wire rope passed out of the engine abuse caused Sparks to fit out in All directions. It was but the space of a few seconds when the Cage crashed through the plat boards Soverin the Well at the 600 feet level. The Budden Jerk Cai ised the safety grappling appliances to catch the skids the Cago stopping six feet under the broken Well boards and about three feet deep in the the drum continued to revolve and the whole of the wire rope weighing Over 15 off the drum flew out of the engine House Over the bearers and Poppet Heads and Down the Shaft the rope falling Coil after Oil on top of the doomed men. " hearing the Orash of the broken Well boards the two men Young and Wall rushed out of the level arid therb beheld an appalling sight. Thomas clap Perton was clinging tenaciously to the Side bar of the Cage Aud the poor fellow was moaning in great pain. The two mates at once set about removing the 600 fast of wire rope but were unable to do anything owing to its great weight. Two hand saws were a soon As possible obtained from the surface and the skids out away. The rope was then pulled off into the level you Gand Wall then lifted Tho covers of the Cage and pulled up the Man Thomas. He was still alive but unions pious. The unfortunate Man was placed in Tho Cage in the opposite compartment and take to the surface where or. Eadie who had mean while been sent for was in attendance. The unfortunate Man attempted to speak but articulation failed and whilst the doctor was examining him he expired. Tho men Bolow were meanwhile engaged in recovering the body of the other brother David. It will be remembered that when the Cage broke away it crashed through the Well boards but the grippers caught 3 feet below the water. The men accordingly descended into the water and recovered the body lying at Tho Bottom of the Cage. The remain which were frightfully mutilated were then sent to the sur Taco and placed on a str Ellior beside his dead brother. Tho sight As the two Muti lated men Lay Side by Side was heartrending. The bodies were next conveyed to the Queen s hotel at Quarry Hill. Yoou after Tho Mucoid out Trio mine and Machin Ery were inspected by or w. H. Grainger in Spector for mines and also by or Stewart the inspector for the Ballarat District who happened to be in Sandhurst. The directors and to Al manager were also on the ground. The inspectors appeared to to satisfied that in the under ground Workings the accidents prevention act had been fully complied with. They also minutely examined the winding Mun i i n or i. Found As stated above that the clutch Check on which the Loose drum was keyed had broken clean in halves. On examining the broken pieces not the slightest flaw could be found Tho Oast Iron was not " honeycombed nor were any blowhole visible consequently the inspectors arrived at the conclusion that the chock had been keyed too tightly thereby causing the sudden fracture. The sensibility of Iron to weather influences appears therefore to to the True Salish of this Lamoil Lable tool Dent. The Olu Toh in question had been in constant work for two Aioli the previously mid therefore was thought to be perfectly Bate. Tho cages used in the Shaft Are Webb s design and on previous occasions both the miners aria directors had tried the grippers and Theja always caught the Cage never dropping Riviore than two Nohos. The safety apparatus is worked by a steel Oil Spring under the Cross bar. There is however no appliance As in Seymour a by which a person in the Cage can make the grippers catch in Tho event of the Dirrim " running with Webb s Patent the weight of the Cage and men kept Tho rope taut consequently the grippers did not come into play. As Scott As the Cage struck the Well boards the sudden Jerk brought the grippers into notion but run fortunately it was then too late.

Moment Tri extinguish the flames Tri which their attention had been directed by. Porter the . Stone Conception of the tremendous Force of the Shook May be gathered from the fact that a Stone was thrown to Phillips Hill a distance of Abdulr a Quarter of a mile and Many houses in the Vicinity were so severely shaken by the Moncus Isidori that the i widows were broken.
