1883 2 Albright Wilmington Coal Company, Braidwood - Shaft, 40 feet, 3 feet
1884 3 Albright, Wilmington, A Shaft, Braidwood - Shaft, 53 feet, 3 feet
Albright Wilmington Coal Company. - "A" Shaft. This is just a new shaft, the old one having been abandoned and used as an escapement and air-shaft. Here as everywhere else where steam is used as the ventilator, the ventilation becomes impaired during the summer months. I started out to have a fan put on and I now have the superintendent's promise to put one on. With proper care the steam would have served them and given them plenty of air until next spring, but at four of my visits there have been three different managers, each having his own favorite theory, and none of them willing to spend the necessary money for real improvement.
1885 4 Albright and Wilmington Coal Company, Braidwood - Shaft, 50 feet, 3 feet
Albright and Wilmington Coal Co. - "A" shaft. A fifty foot chimney has been built to enlarge the ventilating capacity of this mine, and this with the improvements made in the airways has kept the air in very good condition. The company is building a fan, which will be running very soon.
1887 5 Albright Wilmington Coal Company, Braidwood - Shaft, 50 feet, 3 feet
The Allbright Coal Company has also gone out of business.

1884 3 Wilmington Springfield (sold to Albright Company), Braidwood - Shaft, 50 feet, 3 feet
1884 3 Albright, Wilmington, B Shaft, Braidwood - Shaft, 70 feet, 3 feet
Albright Wilmington Coal Company. - "B" Shaft. This formerly belonged to the Wilmington and Springfield Company. They had their coal nearly worked out, and the Albright Company having coal contiguous to the shaft, bought it, never suspecting that they would have to put it in order if they intended to run it. After I found that a new company had taken it, I paid it another visit and demanded that they should set it in order, get a proper escapement shaft, and get it sufficiently ventilated. This they promised to do, but on going back two months after I found it in the same fix as at first. I then notified them to appear in court and started for Joliet to file the necessary information against the company, but was called away to Braceville by the death of William Bedington. I then empowered the County Inspector to proceed to Joliet and enter information. This he did, but the prosecuting attorney would not proceed until I went personally. I went, and one of the directors of the company asked fourteen days to sink their escapement and build the fan and have it running. I thought this better than I could get in the court, so I granted it. When I went there in July I found that they had put up a fan that was nearly useless. I know of no means now but to prosecute. They put down their escapement, and, consistent throughout, let the road close leading to it, although it is now open.
1885 4 Albright and Wilmington Coal Co. - "B" shaft has been abandoned. 1887 5 he Allbright Coal Company has also gone out of business.

Eureka No. 1 Shaft. - This shaft had the most dangerous roads that I ever saw in a mine, indicating gross carelessness on the part of the officials in charge.

They, however, promised to set men to work at once to fix it up, and the County Inspector subsequently notified me that they were doing it, but for some reason they finally surveyed it up, and abandoned it before my next visit.
