CONDRY, James
BLANTT, Joseph
HAMILTON,William

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT WASHINGTON MINE No. 5
Three Men Killed and Thirteen Others Injured by Collision on Incline
Early This Morning - Two of Latter May Die
MEN WERE GOING UP PLANE TO WORK
Special to the Times

Westernport, Md., Jan. 25 - A dreadful accident occurred at 6:30 o'clock this morning at Washington Mine No. 5 of the Piedmont and George's Creek Coal Co., near Franklin, Md., of which Mr. M. P. Fahey is superintendent, in which three men were killed instantly and thirteen others were badly, and one or two perhaps fatally injured.
The Killed
Jos. Blantt, Italian laborer
William Hamilton, blacksmith, of Franklin
James Condry, dumpman, of Franklin
The Injured
Kirk, a brakeman on the mine electric motor, injured in the arm and chest. He resides at Barton and will recover.
Edward Kight, carpenter, injured seriously about the head.
John and Louis Tucci, Italian laborers. Joseph hurt about the head, Louis in the legs and chest.
L. C. Lambert, leg broken; resides at Reb's station, near Westerport.
W. H. Smith, weightmaster, shoulder blade broken and injured in the back; resides at Reb's station.
James Gowan, laborer, face cut; resides at Barton.
George Hamilton, miner, face cut; resides at Franklin.
Ed Frazenbaker, roadsman, hurt about arm; resides at Westernport.
Thomas Murphy, fireman, eyes and back injured.
Escaped Injury
Earnest Phillips and Clarence McAllister, both of Franklin, escaped injury. Murphy was on the descending loaded cars; the others were all on the ascending empties. None of the cars were thrown from the track by collision.
How it Happened
As stated, the accident happened on the incline plane during the first trip of the day. The ascending cars are always empty and they meet the descending loads at an automatic switch half way up the incline. Here, of course, if the switch is properly set, they pass each other, keep to the track to the right and there is seldom any difficulty in passing. William Stowell, a lad sixteen or seventeen years old, is charged with setting the switch, and it is thought that in some way he neglected to perform his duty properly and hence the trips collided while going at a high speed.
The men were all riding up the incline on their way to work in or about the mines.
Condry and Blantt were killed instantly. Hamilton died at 8:30 o'clock this morning. Father Quinn, of Barton, and Scarpatti, of Morantown, were quickly on the scene.
Store Turned Into Hospital
The injured in the mine accident have all been taken to Gannon's store at Franklin, which has been turned into a temporary hospital. All the physicians of Piedmont and Westernport are in attendance.

Kight Has Since Died
Since the above story was written Mr. Edward Kight has died. Mr. L. C. Lambert and the three Italians who were seriously injured were taken to the Hoffman Hospital at Keyser. Mr. Kight died at 12:20. The others who were injured were taken to their homes, none of whom were seriously injured.
Mr. Lambert and the three Italians were reported in a critical condition at 4 o'clock.
