(Killed.  Joseph Howark, a Hungarian Miner, was killed by a fall of coal and slate in the Ocean No. 2 Mine PCC on August 2, 1892.  This man had fired two shots in the coal on the previous evening which dislodged part of the coal and left part of it standing in a broken condition.  It would seem that he was engaged sheering the broken coal on the roadside of his room when both coal and slate fell upon him, causing injuries which proved fatal in about one week afterwards.  A sprag set under the broken coal while mining the same would probably have prevented the accident.);
