The rescuing party found fans -which the imprisoned men had made from tool-boxes and mes- sages which had been piec- es of slate. There remained twenty- one miners unaccounted for. The bod- ies found this morning were in a tangled mass, completely blocking the stair-case leading from the third to the second vein, and also were scat- tered along the vein where they had dropped before reaching the stairway. Black damp was the cause of death, all means of escape having been block- ed by debris falling and closing the top of the stair-case. The men had died as they tried to. push through the obstructions or in wait- ing vainly for rescuers. Death evi- .dently did not come to many for hours, if not days. Two rude wood- en ventilating fans, fashioned after the same manner as those found two days ago were affixed to the shaft second level and machinists declined to risk their lives in repairing the machinery, Robert Shaw, a third member of the exploring party finding the bod- ies, told of reading a piece pi slate _______ on which one oE the victims apparent- j ly had checked off the totals of the wall and stairway.
