Diagnosis or cause of accident
Fell down mine shaft after missing his footing.

With sickening regularity the fatal accidents in connection with the mining industry continue. Since our last issue three valuable lives have been lost—Charles Adolph fell down a shaft at Kanowna and was picked up dead, Samuel Eddy was blown to pieces at the South Kalgurli, and L. Evans was mangled by the machinery at the Horseshoe and died in the hospital. Truly a curse hangs over the yellow metal. Would that we were able to do without it.
