QUARRYMEN IN DANGER. In his report to the Boar I of Trade on the mining accidents of last year, Mr. Le Neve Foster comments on the singular fact that the rate of mortality from accidents was higher in quarries than in collieries. The year 1900 was remarkably free from any great mining disaster. There were more than 1000 accidental deaths, but the accidents, being almost as numerous as the deaths, were in each case on a small scale. The death rate of underground workers was only 1'44 per 1000 persons employed, while the death rate among quarrymen working inside pits or excava- tions was 1-90 per 1000.
