Full ReportAccident 19. -- July 13.-- Occurred at the Atlantic Mine. Thomas ALATALA with two other Trammers was told by the Miners that they were about to blast a hole in the drift at the 9th level north of No. 1 shaft. They started with the car of rock and when it had gone about one hundred and fifty feet the car was stopped by a rock that was on the track. ALATALA instead of taking shelter behind the stull timber which he could easily have done insisted upon removing the obstruction. He had just risen up from doing so when he was struck on the head by a piece of rock from the blast and was instantly killed.
