Coal Mines in Kankakee County, Illinois

Central Illinois Coal Mine
The legal description lists this as :    Kankakee County - Township 31 North, Range 9 East, Section 18, SE NE NW
A Shaft Mine at a depth of 60 feet to 95 feet with a coal seam of 3 feet in thickness

Kewen Coal Mine
  Central Illinois Coal Company   prior to 1882 - 1885

Central Illinois Coal Mine No. 2   Central Illinois Coal Company   prior to 1882 - 1885
The last production was reported in 1885.

1884 Coal Report2 - Kankakee County
Central Illinois Coal Company No. 1
      Here there was no escapement nor fence around the shaft, and no safety gates on top. Everything appeared to run without regard to either health or safety. The air was simply deplorable, the mine was nearly closed all round so that there was no way for the mine to be ventilated. I had the shaft fenced and safety gates put on; then the escapement shaft was sunk, and a fan put up. I have not been there since the fan was started, but I know the ventilation must be good as the fan has now a good chance.
      No. 2    The same may be said of No. 2, they being alike in nearly every particular except that the air was a little better in this mine. They have got their escapement and fan so that I judge they are in good shape.
 
1885 Coal Report3 - Kankakee County Central Illinois Coal Co.
      The two mines of this company, situated on a branch of the Illinois Central railroad, have been abandoned. On my last visit there I notified the superintendent as to the condition of the roadways, and remonstrated with him about allowing the rooms to cave in and destroy the air current. He promised to make the necessary repairs, but a few days later the mine was abandoned. The company claims to have expended $70,000 on it without any adequate return, and probably did not feel warranted in putting any more expense on it.

Clark City Coal Mine
The legal description lists this as :    Kankakee County - Township 31 North, Range 9 East, Section 19, SW NE NW
A Shaft Mine at a depth of 74 feet to 95 feet with a coal seam of 3 feet in thickness
      The shaft was 6 feet by 14½ feet, which was divided into two 6-foot compartments.
      The remaining 2½ feet were used as an air shaft.

1884 Coal Report2 - Kankakee County -- Kankakee Coal Mining Company -- Clark City.
      This mine was in fair condition for air, but it has been idle all summer with little prospect of starting in the near future unless some other company undertakes to run it. In that case the new proprietors will have an escapement shaft to sink.
 
1885 Coal Report3 - Kankakee County -- Clark City Mine
      This mine, now owned by Taylor Williams, was formerly the property of the Kankakee Coal Mining Co. There has been an escapement sunk and a fan erected, so that the mine is in very good condition. It is located on a branch of the Illinois Central, and of the Wabash and Pacific railroads.

1894 Coal Report7 - New Mines
      In Kankakee county, the Gardner-Wilmington Coal Co. has opened a shaft to No. 7 vein, about one mile north of Clark City; this shaft is excellently equipped with 16 x 32 in. first motion hoisting engines, two flue boilers, 5 x 20 ft., and a large Norwalk compressor to run the mining machines, which they intend putting in soon. This company also has the Parker revolving screen, and Russell & Parsons self-dumping cages, which will make it in all a first class plant, and likely a great producer.

1896 Coal Report9 - Fires
      On October 11, 1895, the tower buildings, and elevator screen house of the B shaft, Clarke City, was destroyed by fire. The fire originated in or about the bins in which the coal was stored; the loss to the company was $7,000.
 
1897 Coal Report10 - Mine Fires
      August 7, 1896, the boiler house at the new shaft of the Gardner & Wilmington Coal Company's Clark City mine was destroyed by fire.

After repairing the steam pipes, work was resumed in the mine after a suspension of two days.

      The Gardner-Wilmington Coal Co. has sunk a new slope at its mine in Clark City, Kankakee county, from No. 7 seam to No. 2 of the geological section; both seams are being developed at this time.
 
1904 Coal Report16 - Abandoned Mines
      The Gardner-Wilmington Coal Company's mine at Clark City has been abandoned. I inspected this mine February 19, 1904. and found it in an unsafe condition, owing to a dangerous accumulation of black damp, also of gob fires in different parts of the upper seam, which had been abandoned for some time. There is only a thin strata of shale and coal between the upper and lower seams at this place. Many breaks and cavings have occurred at different times and black damp has escaped through these breaks in large quantities, endangering the lives of the men working in the lower seam. Previous to making this inspection, the mine had been idle for over two weeks, and all the mules had been taken out, owing to a fire at the bottom of the escape shaft. I immediately notified the superintendent of the dangerous condition of the mine, also that it must be closed down at once. He ordered the men to take out their tools and the mine was abandoned.
 
1905 Coal Report17 - Changes in Ownership.
      The Consolidated Coal & Iron Company of Chicago has purchased the mine formerly operated by the Gardner-Wilmington Coal Company at Clark City, Kankakee county. This mine was closed down in February, 1904; at that time the lower seam was being worked. The new company is now opening up the upper seam, and has purchased 80 acres of coal land, which is situated 400 feet west of the shaft. All the old workings have been closed off except the pair of entries leading toward the new coal fields: the parting and roadways around the bottom of the shaft have been retimbered and put in safe condition.

S
SPANGLER
March 26, 197422. Mr. Ralph Spangler, of Dwight, age 48, married, 5 dependents, came to his death at about the hour of 5:15 p.m. on March 26, 1974, from electrical shock while in the performance of his duties as Electrician at Peabody Coal Company, Northern Illinois Mine, South Wilmington, Kankakee County, Illinois.
      Mr. Spangler had gone to the sub-station to make some tests concerning a loss of power. He was accompanied by Foreman John Lamoreaes. However, the foreman left before the tests were completed. When Mr. Spangler notified the foreman that he had located the ground fault at the sub-station, it was approximately 5:00 p.m. At this time Mr. Spangler had been working in the portion of the sub-station where knife switch pulls are located and his ohm meter was connected for continuity, but he did not have complete knowledge of the ground fault. Apparently at this time he decided to take the cover off the back side of the oil switch, which was open and the power was off from the oil switch to the pull knife switch. The potential transformer was energized with the oil switch open. There were no witnesses with the man at this time. He was apparently trying to determine the extent of the ground fault, which we found during our inspection, in the steel sheet partition separating the oil switch from the knife switch pulls where the phases left the oil switch and went to the knife switch. The primary disconnects for the sub-station, carrying 33,000 volts are located 2400 feet from the sub-station. The secondary oil switch is located at the sub-station at 4,160 volts. Inside where Mr. Spangler was working, showed evidence of poorly constructed work, which was indicated by the method of which the cables passed through this sheet of steel, where the opening was made with a cutting torch when the ground fault was located, no protective collar was installed. Another place, the truck line from the sub-station to the field switch houses, had a similar situation. There was evidence on another phase where the same conditions apparently had happened before. The potential transformers are approximately thirty inches from the bottom of the sub-station. While working with the leads with his left hand, Mr. Spangler had made bodily contact with his left hip and thigh in the 4,160 volts, which burned the left side of his body, a portion of his left arm and hand. His left ear lobe, neck and face appeared to have a flash burn, according to the coroner. Another possibility, after making contact with the power source, some of these flash burns may have been caused after power going through his body killed Mr. Spangler. Other parts of his body which were burned, could have touched a potential transformer. Mr. Spangler fell to the ground, face up. His left hand, which had no power glove on it, was under a portion of the transformer. His right hand had a glove on it, his left foot was under the calf of his right leg. Mouth to mouth resuscitation was administered by the foreman, Mr. John Lamoreaes. without revival. Mr. Spangler was pronounced dead at the site by James Patterson, Deputy Coroner.
