(Louis Erb was instantly killed by the explosion of a boiler at Bellevue mine, August 3, while acting as fireman for the stationary engine.  From evidence given before the acting coroner it seems that this explosion was one of those unfortunate occurrences that none can account for.  The engineer testified that he had tested the water only a few minutes before the explosion, and found it in the third gauge-cock, and he saw the steam gauge only one minute before and it showed 105 pounds.  The verdict of the jury of inquest was accidental death.)
