I am aware of the circumstances of this regrettable accident, and I agree that it would not have occurred it the timbering rules had been carried out. It is already the constant endeavour of the inspectors of mines to prevent disregard of these rules. but the matter is one which is very largely in the hands of the workmen and the officials supervising them.
