      Mr. Enlow had been informed by Mr. Bertetto, Operator of the Dragline, that he wanted to move three steps toward the strip area. Mr. Enlow left the cab of the Dragline and went to the ground to guide the Draghne in moving. At this time he was on the ground on the right side of the machine in view of the operator when he signaled to execute the move. They moved two steps and as the third step was started Mr. Enlow was moving toward the right shoe to get on it as it was on the ground. It is much easier at this time due to the height of the shoe, which is much higher when it is in center position and ready for digging. This was a common practice in the past.

When Mr. Enlow did not appear he became concerned and went to look for him.

July 13, 18978, at the Bennet mine near Lebanon, be longing to the Lebanon Coal and Machine Association, Peter Hoppen, of Lebanon, a loader, dropped dead while at work. He was loading a car with coal. The entry in which the rooms were located where he had worked that morning was driven 400 feet ahead of the air.

They were mined by machines and the blasting was done about 4 o'clock in the morning by the night shift, about four shots to each room. The only ventilation available while mining the rooms was the exhaust from the machines; but as the compressor stopped when the night shift quit work, there was no provision made for removing the obnoxious gases generated by the explosion of powder used for shooting the coal. As the place was insufficiently ventilated when the work started at 7 o'clock in the morning, the air could not possibly be fit for respiration, Mr. Hoppen complained to his partner of his head, and assigned the condition of the air as being the cause. He had worked in the first room inside of the last cross cut all morning up to 11:30 a. m., and had just moved into the next room with his partner, 80 feet further in the entry, where he had worked about ten minutes. He suddenly fell over backwards.
