Info Title:
Orpha May in Good Ore
The Orpha May Reveling in Richness
graphic for visual presentation of text The Orpha May is in good ore and the mine in good shape. The report of a strike made yesterday and so stated in The Times was correct. It was kind of quiet, every-day strike, however, and nothing to make an inordinate amount of noise about—a nine-foot vein with eight inches of stuff on the foot-wall that shows value of a thousand or two dollars to the ton.
graphic for visual presentation of textThe mine is now being worked principally at the third and fifth levels, the former at a depth of 170 feet, the latter at 275 feet. From the 170-foot level drifts have been run thirty feet north and fifty-five south. At the 275-foot level about 400 feet of drifts have been run north and south. Forty-five men are employed and they are getting out about twenty-five tons of ore each week.

graphic for visual presentation of text—————————
graphic for visual presentation of text Charles A. Keith, one of the best known and most prominent citizens of Cripple Creek, fell 140 feet in the Union shaft of the Orpha May at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and was so badly injured that he died in half an hour.
graphic for visual presentation of text Mr. Keith had been down in the mine inspecting it, and at 4 o'clock concluded to return to the surface. He hooked the cable to the bucket himself on the 145-foot level and gave the signal to hoist.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text When within five feet of the top the bucket was in some unaccountable manner released, and crashed down to the bottom, the engineer at the same time noticing a sudden swaying of the cable, which lashed from side to side in the shaft, and the rattling of chains, which told him that something was wrong.
graphic for visual presentation of text No one saw the tragic event, and the bruises on the body of Mr. Keith mutely tell the story of his battle for life and his subsequent death, which the entire district will mourn.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text Mr. Keith tightened his grasp on the cable, and in doing so the flesh was torn from his right hand, which was badly lacerated. In the swaying of the cable, he must have struck the side of the shaft and been rendered unconscious, and it was at that time that his grasp was released and he fell downward into the shaft.
graphic for visual presentation of text The impact when he struck the bottom broke his left foot and his right arm, while he was badly injured on the left side, in the region of the heart, and there is a deep gash in his right temple where he struck the bucket.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text Superintendent Dan McDonald immediately fastened another bucket to the cable, which was lowered, and tenderly lifting the bruised and unconscious man, gave the signal to hoist.
graphic for visual presentation of text All that man could do was done for him. Rough miners became as tender as women, and tears flowed from every eye.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text Medical aid was summoned, and a telephone message was sent to Dr. Whiting to repair at once to the residence of Mrs. Keith in this city and break the news to her, for she is in a delicate condition.
graphic for visual presentation of text Mr. Keith was beyond all human aid, and his life was ebbing fast, and at 4:30 o'clock, surrounded by friends who hastened to the point as soon as the news of the accident became known, he expired, quietly, without having regained consciousness.
graphic for visual presentation of text The remains were immediately conveyed to Cripple Creek.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text No arrangements for the funeral will be made until the arrival of his brother, E.W. Keith, from Leadville, to-day.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text No one knows how the accident occurred. The cable did not pull out of its socket, and was equipped with a safety hook, but in some manner it slipped, with the result above recited.
graphic for visual presentation of text Mr. Keith was one of the most prosperous and best known men in the Cripple Creek district. He was 32 years of age.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text He was a partner in the immense transfer business of Keith & Grube, and was operating a number of paying leases, while he was manager of a number of well known properties and was one of the richest men in the district.
graphic for visual presentation of text He came here five years ago, where his success has been marked by everyone.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text He had hundreds of friends and no enemies. He served two years as alderman from the Second ward in this city, and in addition to his many other interests was the local manager of the Hayden Electric Light Co.

graphic for visual presentation of text He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his loss, a boy three years and a girl five years of age.
graphic for visual presentation of text
graphic for visual presentation of text The business of the firm of Keith & Grube will be conducted the same as in the past.
