Crushed in a Mine

Tom Clayton and Joseph Randolph, two white men working in the Satterfield manganese mine, a short way north of the city, were crushed to death by the falling in of dirt and debris, on Wednesday of last week.

It seemed the men had been discussing the removal of some timbering near by where they were working and decided it would be safe. When this was done, however, by a workman, a great mass of ore, dirt, etc., toppled in right over where Clayton and Randolph were at work. The dirt was removed and the bodies were recovered after some time but it is supposed death resulted instantly on the falling of the dirt.
