Nanaimo Explosion
rury's Verdict
h
No Blame Attached to Anyone for Explosion at Reserve Mine in which
Marty Lives Were.Lost.
NANAIMO, B. C, June 18.—The inquiry conducted ' by Coroner Jeffs of
Vancouver into the circumstances con-
nected with the explos-on at Reserve
Mine concluded this afternoon with
tho jury returning the following verdict: "We, tlve jury empanelled to inquire Into the cause of the death ot
William -Ball, Robort Klrkbrlde and
twenty others, find that the deceased
camo to an accidental death on the
27th of May by an explosion of gas In
the Reserve (Mine,of the Western Fuel
Co., Nanaimo, and after hearing the
evidence of thirty-three witnesses we
cannot attach blame to any person.
We also find that every precaution
and care has been fully exercised by
the management of the said company."
In accepting the verdict Coroner
Jeffs thanked the jurymen for their
services and .expressed the belief they
had come to the only verdict possible
according to ^ the evidence submltte.1.
He congratulated the jurymen on the
harmonious proceedings and also on
the high Intelligence shown by all the
witnesses, lt not bein? necessary to
Imve an Interpreter, which was generally found necessa:;.- In mining communities.
Thomas Graham, Chief Inspector of
Mines, residing at Victoria, was the
most Important witness of the morning, and his evidence concluded the in-
inquiry. John Newton, inspector of
mines, who resides here, was the other,
witness. Both these witnesses sup
ported the theory that the initial ex-
plosion took place in No. 5 crosscut,
Mr. Hudson Recalled
At the opening of the morning ses
sion, Mr. Ashworth, who formulated
the theory that the explosion occurred
In the slope and was caused by the explosion of a detonator, asked leave, ass
an appointee of the Provincial Government, to .question the 'witnesses.
Immediately Coroner Jeffs granted the
request, he asked to have Jlr. Hudson,
the Ottawa expert, recalled. Kor near-
FROM THE FRONT
carry brattice all the way down the
center of the slope. Par down the
slope they found the bodies of the
young 'Mazs, Guffogg 'and Williams.
Masts' body was badly burned, but
from the condition of the other two
bodies the witness concluded that
there was but little flame Jn this section of the mine. At the face of the
counterslope there was a cave. When
(the party arrived at this point they
were relieved by another crew.
"J. cannot conclude that the Initial
explosion occurred in the slope," stated thd witness.- He then.proceeded
to give his reasons for holding to the
No. 5 crosscut. He proved his point
by the process of elimination. The
eastern section of the mine was practically Intact. There was not enough
evidence of flame in the slope to warrant an explosion of such proportion
as to. wreck the mine. Similarly in
N'o. 6 cross cut there were but little
signs of a disruptive force having acted. There was then only.one other
place \yhere the explosion could have
taken place, that being in No. 5 crosscut, where there was much evidence of
flame and where the miners were killed in their trabks.
Were There Two Explosions?
Here there was a very heavy cave.
Thomas Suter's lamp was .found broken. Just how it was shattered will
probably never be known, but it probably was struck by a light fall of coal.
This fall liberated a quantity of gas
which exploded. Then came the heavy
cave which liberating an enormous
quantity of gas which exploded with
terrific force. Witness thought that
there was not enough oxygen to accomplish a complete combustion and
some of the gas was probably driven
ahead of the force. Running along
the level this gas, seeking escape, probably shot up the slope where there
was much oxygen, Therefore a secondary, explosion probably occurred
near young .Mazs and Crew*. Mazs
was probably driven to the face of the
slope by the force. Guffogg and Williams, who were working near the face
of the slope, probably ran about 100

A well-known Michellte writes to his
friend James Mercer: ''
"Somewhere in France,"
. June 2, 1915.
Dear Friend,—Just a few lines to let
you all know that I am well and hearty
and hope when this arrives it will find
you the same.
.1 have been looking for a reply to
the last letter I wrote, but maybe you
did not receive it, or if you did your
letter to me lias got lost
Well, Jim, I've a bit of bad news to
tell you but this is what we must expect in such a job as this. Tom Lyons
was killed on Sunday, May 81 st. Poor
chap! one consolation ho did not suffer, as he was killed instantaneously
and never.knew what did it, Ted
Armstrong and I were standing close
together when the big shell struck the
top of the dug-out-in which Lyons was
with several other chaps, but he was
the only ono knocked out. Armstrong
and I were both burled by the earth
that this shell gouged out, but neither
of us was the worse for the experience.
I expect by the time this reaches you
the sad news will have been received
by his wife.
Tommy Bailey was slightly injured
but it Is expected that he'll be back
ln the firing line in a day or two as
fit as ever. I have not seen George
Gregory since we left England, although I heard he-was on the same
firing line as us and had gone to the
hospital sick. Tim Weaver, too, was
taken sick, but I don't think It was
anything serious at all.
Well, Jim, this war job is a big, hard
scrap, and no mistake, and I don't
think anybody has ever seen Its like
before, but we'll win before long.
We've just come out of the trenches after a 9 day's stay tn them. Some
Whitsuntide, eh?
Give regards to everybody and write
soon.
Your sincere friend,

Commission's writes that the warehouses In Kngland have been almost
depleted by the tremendous strain on
their supplies. ln view of this report we make an appeal to tlie men
and women of Fernie to give tlieir best
help and support to aid In the work of
lvsiewinj?; these supplies. At present
there are two means of helping: i'cr
tho women there are sewing meetings
every Tuesday and Saturday afternoon
in the basement of Knox, Presbyterian
Church; every woman In town who can
bew should gome and help; for the
mo:, there is tXe Drawing of Gold, the
proceeds of which are to go to the
Pr iridic and Red Cross. The Drawing Is to bo hettl in the Isis Theatre on
the evening of July 1st. All thos? who
have books of tickets to sell are earnestly desired to, do their utmost to sell
as many as possible at once and turn
in the stubs and money. Anyone may
buy a ticket at Liphardt's. If you
haven't yet bought a ticket buy one
sow; if you have one—get another.
■More supplies are needed In summer
than in winter, as'th£ fighting is more
severe. We must make greater efforts.

open, but Just how 'long lt was open
was purely a matter of conjecture. In
reply to Mr. Ashworth's question, wltnoss stated that It was an Impossibility to tell how -Suter's lamp was
smashed. Witness would not state
from memory at what percentage gas
would explode He thought tbat when
gas caused an elongated or blue flame
In a lamp it should be reported In the
■ mine.
Had Examined Mino
John Newton, who has been an In-
spector for five years, -stated that he
was at the scene ot the explosion a
tew minutes «fter It occurred. Ho
found tho fanning apparatus running
strong. He accompanied Mr. Hunt and
others on the rescue crew, and related the story of the recovery of some of
the bodies, which evidence was similar to thst of Mr. Hunt. Wltnoss was
called to Britannia shortly afterwards,
and did not take part In tho later operations.
Witness stated thit on May 8th ko
made an examination o( tbo mino, He
bad made a rogular report. The ventilation was good but there bad been a
• small amount of explosive gas In tbo
west levels. He took samples ot air
and lent tbem to Ottawa tor examine-
tion. The returns showed tbat tbe
sample contained no carbon monoxide
but .0* parts of carbon dioxide hnd
78,6 part* otnituttfrb and other Ingrt-
dlents In fairly normal proportions.
To Mr. Pisco witness stated tbat lt
was practically an Impossibility^ to
place two doors where tbo one bad
been blown away In tho wost level.
Witness had been satisfied with tbe
mine and never bad hsd an occasion
to report anything wrong to the chief
Inspector,

per minute. To the coroner witness
stated that but a small cave would be
sufficient to break the lamp. At this
point the morning session concluded.
- Before submitting to cross-examination witness pointed out that the explosion was primarily a gas explosion.
Dust played but a small part. He then
presented to the jury a barometer
reading, which be had taken Jn tlie
mine after tbe explosion. These four
readings showed an average of 88 per
cent, ot saturation, showing that the
mine as a whole was a wet one.
In response to a Juror, witness stated that the Wolfe safety lamp, such as
was used by the deceased miners, was
the best and safest style of lamp In
use today. There was no lamp, with
the exception, perhaps, of some of our
electrlo ones, whioh would not Ignlto
gas.
Government Inquiry.
"Will thore be a Government Inquiry
after this?" was tbe abrupt query of
Mr. Foster, But bofore tbo witness
could answer both Coroner Jeffs and
Mr. Yarwood objected to toe qeusUon,
which wont unanswered,      .
"Would not tho working of two
shifts Instead ot three In this mine
make conditions safer?" asked Mr.
Poster. ,
"That would depend," answered tho
witness, "on tho character of the mine
snd the ventilation. Personally, I
would work no mine, except In development work, the full 24 hours." (Reserve Mine Is in course of develop
ment.) -
Mr. 4sbwortb then cross-examined
the witness at length ln sn effort to
ahow that the primary and not the se*
condsry explosion took place In the
slope. Witness held that there woro
many freaks of nature and strange vagaries lii connection with ooal mine
explosions which eould not be accounted for when asked why one man was
burned more than another when not so
near the point of Ignition. He slated

To the Rditor, District Ledger.
Dear Sir,—At a recent meeting of
the Local Committee of the Canadian
Patriotic Fund, It was suggested that
a service could be rendered to the dependants of some of the soldiers who
havo left for thu front, if you could
"arrange to draw attention to the necessity for meeting premiums due on
life policies held by such*soldiers. It
was thought that ihe following would
answer the purpose:
Attention has been directed to the
.fact that many men who enlist nre
policy holders In life Insurance companies and, owing to enlistment, a tew
neglect to pay their premiums until
they are overdue, and the 30 da*-*'
grace 1'us expired. A few compiinles
ure only too glad to be rid of "war
risks" end once tho days of grac? havo
expired tt Is sometimes quite impossible to persuade such companies to
re-instate the policy holder. It Is,
therefore necessary that the wives of
soldiers should meet Insurance premiums as they" fall due.
Your* very truly,
WM. WALKER,
Secretly.
THE LIQUOR QUESTION
To the Bditor, District Ledger.
Doar Sir,—Under the above caption
in* last week's issue of the District
Ledger there appeared what we consider one of the fairest and most un*
biased expositions of tho Liquor Question that has yet appeared In the public press. Por, although the pros and
cons ot the question aro being discussed In almost every paper circulating In
tbe west, yet most of the stuff appearing for or against is purely advertising matter, while the articles appearing aro mostly "written to order.1'
The writer certainly touches the
Owing to the character of threats
alleged to have been uttered by Germans or Austrians, a number of citizens of ISritlsh nationality felt that
their safety was menaced if they continued to work with these alien enemies. A committee was appointed and
after a conference with Manager Drinnau and other officials of Die Hlllcrest
Mines Coal Co., it was decided by the
management that no "alien enemies"
should be allowed to work until these
charges had been investigated, and the
truth or falsity determined. A com-
jnittee also of the Austrians and Germans was formed who waited upon the
liritish speaking citizens committee
and asked for information touching the
alleged charges. After niaking enquiries regarding certain utterances it
was discovered that they were not of
the highly Inflammable tone which had
boen ascribed to them. The citizen's
committee of British stock upon calling upon the management were asked
whether they thought thc charge made
was a correct one or not, and replied
that they were satisfied they had been
inaccurately reported.

food which cannot be properly digested if the child
be poorly nourished, not remedy this short-coming ?
3. "Why does the Stale impose obligations upon
the parents which thej" eannot adequately fulfil and
leave the deficit to chance ?
4, AY hat explanation (vot what excuse) liave
you to offer why two children bom the same day
with practically like mental qualifications, have not
tin equality of opportunity to receive the same educational facilities?
There arc ti numbor of pertinent questions we
illicit propound upon this subject, but offer the
above four as simple thought starters.   ,
To suggest that one study Socialism is too broad
i. generalization for the ordinary individual with
hide-bound prejudices at the start off, hence our
reason for formulating the foregoing queries which,
being put in more tangible shape, may receive more
consideration than if we advised a study of Social-
imii and left it at that.
A WORD ON BEHALF OF THE INTERNS
"EQUALITY" AND "EQUALITY OF
OPPORTUNITY
One of the many erroneous charges niade againM
the Socialist by opponents is that they believe -ix
making all men and women equal, and then undertake to show the absurdity of the attempt.
The trouble with this class of objectors is they
first build up an argument upon false premises and
then, in their conceit, having pointed out the fallacies, reach the conclusion the opponent should consider himself incontinently and completely
squelched.
The opponent, if a Socialist, does nothing of the
soit. l;:t culls the attention of the objector'to the
Misrepresentation he makes, and says, ''Your objections would be all right if your first statement were
correct. Imt it isn't."
It is not "equality" that the Socialist believes in
bul is fi»hting thut all men and women should have
an equably of opportunity.
i'lobably the non-Socialist if lie has not made a
study of the subject, will be unable to see wherein
the difference lies. For the sake of all such we will
try lo make it so clear that even those of limited
education may be able to grasp the difference. Bnt
first let us staL-o why we know there can tie no such
a thing as equality amongst mankind. Some are
born lartre. some small, some are born weak physically, others with powerful constitutions; some are
mentally alert, others, wo fully deficient in perception : some have a natural aptitude for music, whilst
othors have none but possesses exceptional meehani-
<al abilities, and so on through the entire list of
The "Crisis in B. C." for the
working class of this province and
elsewhere is not what particular
braud of speculators shall obtain
the profits accruing from speculation, but how is the unemployed
problem and the many other ills
the producing class suffer from
going to be solved? In short, what
what is gbing to be dene to put a
stop to the parent of "Graftitis,"
otherwise known as Capitalism,
New -Brunswick now lias a Work-
men's Compensation Act. It was a
verbatim copy cf tbe Ontar.o Act when
first introduced, but when finally parsed 20 sections had been "scrapped"
entirely and the remainder re-drafted,
and is regarded by tbe manufacturers'
association as the better act of the
two (manufacturers, of course). Under the Ontario Act a beneficiary may
collect as high as eleven hundred dollars a year, whilst In New Brunswick
the limit of compensation is a little
over 600 dollars a year.
There are over 300 men in the Skating Rink temporary wards of thc Provincial Government. They
are nol charged with breaking any law prior to
tlieir isolation, and since tlieir incarceration have
been most exemplary in their behavior, The only
mistake these unfortunates made was they did not
select the particular piece of the earth's surface before their advent upon life's stage, hence are now
suffering for this lack of foresight.
Under the circumstances we feel sure everybody
will recognize that as it has been deemed advisable
to segregate them they are entitled to every consideration in the shape of food, shelter and other
comforts which the exigencies of the case permit.
They are furnished with plain food and shelter;
books, papers, etc.. have beet\ donated to them in
order to aid them in passing away the time, also a
little physical exercise has been furnished. But
(here is one Ihing lacking, and that is bathing facilities, which are very badly needed where so many
men are congregated together. Whilst it may be
inconvenient for the police authorities to fit up the
necessary accommodation, not knowing how long
these men will be held in custody, we are'confident
that as by far the greater majority of these men are
employees of the Coal Company, they could be escorted to Coal Creek and there enjoy the pleasures
of the bath, thereby adding to their comfort as well
us removing a possible menace to their own health
and that, of their associates.
The "Daily Citizen," the exclusive labor publication recently compelled to
close down despite tho fact that its
circulation was over 200,000, will limit,
date all its debts nt 20s. In the .£.
Although its circulation was ttfoat tho
advertisement revenue was disappointing. It is very probable after the war
publication will be resumed.
AVe can never get rid of graft until
we remove the cause of graft—the
cause is Capitalism.

These simple truths are self-evident to every one.
Socialist included, and still this old bugaboo is
trotted out from time to time by those who, in trotting them out display their ignorance-
Xow then for "the equality of opportunity."
Wo feel .safe iu snying that with but very few exceptions everybody believes that every child is entitled to an education. Strange as it may seem, but
even within our brief lifetime, this was strongly op.
posed. However, let that pass. Today the opposi-
tion to education is practically nil.
Wc often hear boasts made about the glories and
benefits of our educational institutions, open to
everyone. This is only correet in part, and not
'wholly so. The children nt the vast majority of
the members of the working elass do not have the
sn me opportunity as those whose parents possess a
little mrtre of this world's goods.
Statistics without number eould be furnished to
back up the above assertion, hut we do not think
il necessary to tjiinte more than one, as that one

at the disposal of his native land in its hour of
need. No state ean exist except on the basis
of a recognition, of a full recognition, of that
duty on the part of every man and every woman in the land,"—Lloyd George, Manchester
speech, June 3rd.
The occasion for this utterance was the plea for
more munitions with which to prosecute the war.
We do not propose to confute the statement, but
believe it would be more fully amplified, by the
introduction of the adjective ''capitalistic" hetween
"N'o" aud "State." The "State" with the qualifying adjective, not expressed but understood, has existed without the recognition of the duty of every
man and eyery woman.
In times of pence, when poverty, nnt Prussianism.
menaces lhe well-being of millions, the recognition
of every man's nnd ijvery woman's responsibilities
one to another have been complacently ignored anil
made subordinate to another "!'"—Profit-
This classic utterance mny serve n.s a landmark

clnmors of the poverty-stricken multitudes are
heard throughout the Innd.

In Michel Hall, Monday; night last,
a committee of ladies held a sool
dance for brothers fighting for ihe
Kmiiire which was quite a sucioss,
being patronized by all nationalities,
and to both them and tlie musicians
the ladies extend their thanks. Dancing was kept up till the sma' wee lioors
of the mornin' and all who participated
were loud in their praises for the
promoters. Tlie committee was composed of the following ladies: Mrs. M.
Littler, sec, Mrs. M, Jenkins, treasurer. -Mrs. W. Whitehouse. Mrs. S. Stevenson, Mrs. J. Touhey, Mrs. IX Grundy.
The dance realized the following:
Taken at the door, $57.00; 184 pair, of
socks; flowers sold, $11.80; ribbon
sold, $3.90; ice cream, $14.30. The
money -collected will be handed to the
Daughters of the Empire to dispose of
as they think fit.
We regret that lack of space will
not allow us to .publish the names of
all donors, but may mention that 107
ladies'contributed 184 pair of socks.
The mines here are working fair at
present, but we would not advise any
one coming to Michel in search of
work, as there are scores of men here
hanging around looking for jobs, and
cannot get them.
T. Conners, the Sociilist standard-
bearer In the coming election, delivered an address at Nata! on Sunday last
before a very well'attended mea*.lug,
and tt goes without sayine thn' his
audlpnce was pleased with his speech.
Furthermore, It was pleasing to hear
some of tlie opposition declare that his
remarks were well founded, and we
have no doubt that the workers will
vet learn that it is them and only
them who can work out their own
emancipation.
We are sorry to report an accident

meeting was to ascertain the sentiment of the public with reference to
having the aliens interned, and requested that a vote be taken on the
matter.     The sum and substance of
ence relaive to the doctor question in
this locality, reported that the conference were of the opinion that if five
cents were deducted from the -doctor's
fees per month, per member and placed in a central fund, it would be suffi-
cenT to meet the normal requirements
of consultation and treatment of a
specialist. Some of the doctors in
question are agreeable with this plan,
and it is reasonable to suppose that in
the near future it will be in working
order. The Pit Committee reported
that the superintendent, for business
reasons, found it impossible to agree
to thc committee's request that the
work should be equitably shared up
ns the outlook at present was practically a day to day contract, and as far
as he knew there was no immediate
srgns ot* improvement.
The recommendation of the relief
committee that those working should
be assessed to support those who aie
not did not meet with approval owing
to the fact that they themselves were
unable to make, ends meet, and as our
