Glen Rogers, WV Mine Accident, Sep 1922

5 MINERS KILLED.

VICTIMS OF ACCIDENT IN WEST VIRGINIA PIT.

Charleston, W. Va., -- (United Press) -- Officials of the Raleigh-Wyoming Coal Company today were without details of the accident at the Glen Rogers mine yesterday, in which five miners were killed when an elevator fell.
Glen Rogers lacks telephone and telegraph communication and officials here could only surmise how the fatalities occurred.
"Skip fell in shaft, five men killed," signed by the Raleigh-Wyoming Mine company was the only direct message received here. County officials at Beckley confirmed the report but know none of the miners names or details.
The Glen Rogers mine is operated on a non-union basis. Reports that miner faction differences were responsible were emphatically repudiated by company officials here.
