i ANOTHER WELSH MINE I FATALITY I HOW THREE OFFICIALS LOST THEIR LIVES. Three officials of the Tredegar Com- pa.ny lost their lives on Saturday evening at Whitworth Colliery, Tredegar. Their names are Joseph Parsons, under manager. William Harris, overman. William Watkins, fireman. .They were married. They had been work. ing in the day shift, and failed to return their lamps, and this aroused, suspicion. Air G. Golding, manager, and another official searched the workings, and out- side the old disused heading a lighted lamp was found. Efforts were made to get inside, but the foul air drove them back, and rescue brigades from Crumlin and New Tredeg- ar were summoned. A squad of Crumlin Brigade descended, and, with the aid "of Draegar apparatus, entered the poisonous atmosphere and found the three officials lying together face downwards and dead. Two of them had their mufflers tied around their mouths, as though they had lealised the danger before entering. It is surmised that these men went to the assistance of the third man, who had entered the heading, and all were over- come. ——————*«**———————
