1900 :: Death of Will Moses


Rockdale, Tex., April 16. -- Will Moses, who was caging at the Witcher coal mine, two miles east of Rockdale, was instantly killed this morning about 9 o'clock. He either gave a wrong order or his order was misunderstood and the wrong cage was hoisted, which caught him between the cage and shaft. His neck was broken and his breast and collarbone crushed.
