It becomes our sad duty to chronicle the death of William Atkinson, late State Inspector of Mines for the Seventh Mine Inspection District. Of the dangers
to which this class of State servants are exposed, he was the first to lose his life while engaged in the performance of his duty.
William Atkinson, State Inspector of Mines, Seventh District, was killed in the mine at Zeigler, Illinois, April 3, 1905, his death was caused by inhaling after-damp; whose home was at Murphysboro, led the first rescuing party to enter the mine, and was soon overcome by gas or after-damp. This was following the violent explosion that occurred in the Zeigler Coal Company mine, Zeigler, Franklin County.
See : 1905 Explosion
Deceased was born Feb. 2, 1848 at Alnwick, England, and came to this country in 1863. Shortly after reaching New York he enlisted in the Union Army, joining Company K, New York Volunteer Infantry, and served with distinction until the close of the war. His honorable discharge bears the date of July 18, 1865.
After the close of the war he located at Murphysboro, Illinois, where he continued to reside. He was married to Zerilda Kilgore, at Harrisburg, Illinois, February 16, 1876. Of this union nine children were born, but three of whom are living. Mr. Atkinson was appointed July 1, 1901, by Governor Yates as a member of the State Board of Mine Examiners. He continued to serve in that capacity until July, 1904, when he succeeded Even D. John, as State inspector of Mines for the Seventh District. Prior to his connection with the State Service he had served as mine manager for several coal companies in the Southern part of the State. While deprived in early youth of the advantages of an education, he possessed a bright observing mind, and accumulated a considerable store of information on a variety of subjects. Aside from his experience in the army, before coming to this country, he followed the occupation of a British sailor, and, in the line of that employment, had visited nearly every port in the world. His extensive travels gave him an intimate knowledge of human affairs and quickened his judgment of men His was the positive type of character, combined with deep sympathy and most generous impulses. His disposition was extremely kind and he was never so happy as when performing a service for others. He was a member of several secret societies, and was buried with Masonic honors at Murphysboro, April 7, 1905. Those who enjoyed his acquaintance will long remember him for his many loving qualities of head and heart.

The original of the above picture was born in the county of Northumberland, England, in 1846, and is now 58 years of age. He attended the schools
in the mining districts of Northumbria until he was 13 years of age, when he commenced work in the collieries of the Bedlington coal company, going
through the regular courses from trapper boy to miner.
He came to the United States in 1871, locating in Henry, Marshall county, Illinois. After working two years in the coal mines at Galva, and operating a local mine at Henry, he moved to Streator, LaSalle county, where in 1873 he engaged with the Vermillion coal company as a miner, and remained in the employ of that company for ten years. In 1883 the General Assembly passed an act creating the office of State inspectors of coal mines in lllinois, dividing the State into five districts, also providing for the examination of candidates for inspectors by a board of examiners. For some time previous to the passage of this act, Mr. Hudson had been a close student of mining literature, hence, he was fairly well versed in the technical as well as the practical knowledge of coal mining. At the first examination held by the board he successfully passed the examination, and was at once appointed by Gov. John L. Hamilton, as State inspector of coal mines for the second district. He at once transferred his residence from Streator to Galva, the latter being more centrally located in the district. Since 1883 he has been reappointed and commissioned by every Republican Governor, and now holds commissisn under Governor Yates.

|The resignation of Evan D. John to take effect of July 1, 1904|
Evan D. John was born in Measteg, Glanmorgan Shire, South Wales, in 1861. Like most of his countrymen in those days, he was deprived of an
early education. At the age of eight years he began working in the mines at that place as a trapper boy, and continued working in the coal mines of his
native land until 1880, when he came to this country. His first work here was in a shaft at Murphysboro, Illinois. Sinee then he has worked in the
coal mines of Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, New Mexico and Indian Territory.
In 1886 he held his first position as mine manager at Centerville, Iowa. In 1888 he came to Springfield, Illinois, and took charge of the mining machines at the mine located at Spaulding. Shortly afterwards he accepted the position of mine manager, and later, superintendent at the same mine, continuing until 1892, when he accepted a similar position at the mine at Barclay, remaining at this mine until 1897, when Gov. John R Tanner appointed him State inspector for the seventh district, which position he has held ever since. His residence since his appointment as inspector has been at Carbondale.

The original of the above picture was born at Haswell, county of Durham, England, in 1835.
At the age of 14 years he began working in the coal mines at that place. After about a year he was transferred to the surveying division, working with the mine examiners a part of the time. In 1854 he came to the United States, locating in the anthracite coal region, where he worked as a miner for two years. He came to Illinois in 1856, and settled in Alton, which has been his home ever since. Here he worked in the mines until May, 1864, when he enlisted in company D, 133rd regiment, Illinois infantry as first sergeant. Afterwards, in the same year, he raised a company which was mustered into the 144th regiment, and served as first lieutenant to the close of the war of the rebellion. After the close of the war he again went to work in the coal mines near Alton. At the same time he was chosen as secretary of the Miners' Benevolent organization, embracing the states of Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, serving the organization for two years. During the session of the constitutional convention of 1870, he was active in securing a clause in the constitution providing for a police regulation for the coal mines of the State. In after years he was a member of a committee of miners to formulate a mining law for the State. After several attempts to secure such legislation he, with others, was finally successful in securing the passage of a mining law at the session of the general assembly of 1879, but which provided for county inspectors only. In 1883, after the passage of the law creating State inspectors of coal mines, he passed in the first examination for inspectors and was appointed inspector for the fourth district. He was reappointed successively each term and held the position until 1894. In 1897 he was again appointed inspector, and is now serving in that capacity.

This inspector was born in Heywood, Lancashire, England, in 1853, and is now 51 years of age.
In 1873 he came with his parents to the United States, locating at Elmwood, Peoria county, Illinois. Here he obtained work in the coal mines in that locality. In 1876 he moved to Kansas, but returned to Illinois in 1880 and began work in the mines at Edwards as a miner. In 1882 he was appointed to the position of county mine inspector of Peoria county. While occupying this position, he was selected as mine manager for one of the mines at Edwards, where he remained for five years. In 1887 he was appointed State inspector of mines for the third district by Governor Oglesby, and reappointed to the same position by Governor Fifer. In 1890 he resigned as State inspector, to engage in the coal mining business at Edwards. In 1898 he was appointed a member of the State mining board, serving until 1901, when he was again appointed State inspector of the third district by Governor Yates, and by him reappointed in 1903, and is now serving in that position.

|Joseph C. Thompson was Director of Mines and Minerals of the State of Illinois from November, 1918, until his death on Monday, April 12, 1920. He was born August 4, 1857, at Sherburn Hill, County Durham, England. Before he was seven years of age both of his parents died and he was left to fight life's battle alone. At the age of ten he entered the mines as a trapper boy. An eager ambition led him to improve his spare momnets in study. He paid particular attention to mining and, in time, graduated as a Mining Engineer from Rutherford College at Newcastle-on-Tyne. Later he made special investigations of mine gases at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. His superior skill secured for him positions of importance in the English mining fields. He made several visitis to America and, in July, 1906, brought his family from England and settled in Southern Illinois, where he lived until his removal to Springfield in January, 1919. He held a number of positions as a mining engineer until he became a State inspector of mines, in which capacity he was employed when he succeeded his friend, the late Evan John, as Director of Mines and Minerals. On more than one occasion he faced death in mine disasters as he sought to save others, even at the risk of losing his own life. His whole career was marked by steadfast devotion to the industry of mining to which he attached himself in boyhood as his life work. In 1877 he married Miss Mary Jane Dixon, who bore him twelve children, eleven of whom , six sons and five daughters, grew to maturity. He was baptized in the Church of England, but, on his removal to America, affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal Church.. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias and of the Masonic order, with whose beautiful and impressive burial service he was laid to rest in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield. His life stands forth as a remarkable illustration of human possibilities, when one follows the long trail taken by the orphan lad of England until, in a country strange to his kindred, he became the administrative head of a State department. Funeral services were held in the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Springfield on April 15, 1920, the pastor, Rev. Thomas Newell Ewing, being in charge.|

Inspector Weeks was born at Kates Hill, Worcestershire county, England, in 1850, and is now 54 years of age.
In 1861 his father and family emigrated to the United States, settling in Kewanee, Illinois. He attended school in England until he was ten years of age. At the age of 14 years he began working in the coal mines, and he has worked there continuously ever since, occupying the various positions from miner to mine manager. In 1895 he engaged with the Colfax coal and mining company, at Colfax, as mine manager, where he remained until 1901, when he was appointed by Governor Richard Yates as State inspector for the fourth district, and now holds that position.
