Excerpt from State of Illinois Bureau of Labor Statistics: Report on the Cherry Mine Disaster

The appalling loss of human life caused by the fire in the coal mine at Cherry, Ill., calls for something more than a mere recital of the number and names of those who perished. Experience prepares us to expect death at any moment in the mines. Its dangers are so obvious, and seemingly inevitable, that the results in dead and disabled. Can be figured almost with mathematical precision. Our casualty lists, extending back as far as we have any authentic history of the mine industry, attest the awful toll in life and limb inexorably exacted as a penalty which those who pursue such employment must sooner or later pay. Here at least is one sphere where the rules of immunity have no application. The record shows that with every so many tons of coal, there is lifted to the sunlight the bruised or lifeless bodies of men.
