(On October 24, Ginoe Fortinata, Italian, Miner, was instantly killed in the Lucesco mine by a fall of slate.  He went into the mine after working hours to shoot his coal and after doing so went into his friend's room to see the result of his friend's shot (his friend having told him to do so).  It seems that he was trying the roof, for a sledge was found near him, under the slate, and while doing so it came down on him.  The shots having been fired in the solid made the roof dangerous at this mine.)
