Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1889 edition. Excerpt: ...for rooms when but a single car would pass over it at a time, which would greatly diminish the first cost of the iron road." The above article is from the pen of Mr. Hugh Graig, mine boss of the Old Eagle mines. In accordance with section five of the act of June 30, 1885, there is adopted a code of rules and regulations defining the duties of all persons in or about the mines, but I am sorry to say that they are often violated by the very persons whom they were framed to protect. This is done through ignorance in some cases and in others carelessness is manifested in regard to them. I think it would have a beneficial effect if those rules, etc., were printed in pamphlet form and a copy given to each person employed in and about the mines, so that each one could familiarize himself with the efforts made for his welfare. Who should have this done I am not prepared to say. Orr. Doc.
