100 Die in Mine Blast
Over one hundred persons were killed, eighty seriously injured and many more were hurt as the result of the explosion of a ton of dynamite in the No. 2 shaft of the Anacola mine at Alsdorf, Rhenish Prussia.
The rescuing squads, reinforced by Dutch and Belgian miners from neighboring mines, have little hope of rescuing the 150 men entombed alive. The men are imprisoned at a depth of 1,550 feet.
This is the second large German mine disaster within four months. The previous one at Neurode, Silesia, resulted in a death list of more than 150 persons.
