The caving in of the old shaft was discovered about 11:30 Christmas Eve night by Vaimore [Rogers, nightwatchman on the company's electric shovel in the strip pit. The watchman im mediately notified Mr. H. P. Ady of his discovery stating that 'The tipple at No. 1 was going down the shaft". Mr. Ady went at once to investigate the condition and after lining up a sufficient number of wort men, labored for several hours bracing the tipple with heavy railroad irons and cross ties in order to keep it standing until it could be taken down. Crews of workmen labored in- dustrially throughout the day on Christmas and on Saturday fol- lowing, but owing to the scarcity of men capable of working high, slow progress was made these two days. Sunday, however the tipple had been lowered to the extent that other men could be put to work. Rapid progress was made Sunday and the work was fleted Tuesday morning.
