Seite 34 - ... more or less rounded, the spaces between the different boulders being filled with incoherent granitic sand, derived from the decomposed edges and the sides of the blocks. It is quite evident that the granitic mass was originally everywhere jointed, and that atmospheric decay took place much faster on the edges and corners than on the flat sides of the great fragments, thus quickly rounding and forming them into boulders like those found throughout drift areas. The sandy matrix is DKTAII.K1) VIKW,...

Seite 17 - ... (2) The occurrence of a blown-out shot in localities where only small proportions of fire damp exist in the air, in the presence of even comparatively slightly inflammable, or actually noninflammable, but very fine, dry, and porous dusts, may give rise to explosions, the flame from which may reach to distant localities where either gas accumulations ordepositsof inflammable coal dust maybe inflamed, and may extend the disastrous results to other regions.
Seite 21 - The witnesses, who included those best qualified from scientific or practical experience to speak on the question, expressed opinions which were often widely divergent, as to the best means of meeting the danger of explosions, but they were generally agreed on two points — that coal dust is liable to explosion with or without the presence of fire damp, under conditions which are at present to be found in most coal mines in this country and abroad, and that there is pressing need for the elucidation...
