BROTHERS KILLED BY GAS IN WELL

Ed and Phil Miller, who lived on a homestead one mile north of Kremlin, Mont., on the line of the Great Northern railroad, were suffocated this morning at the bottom of a 45-foot well which they were digging on their claim.

After reaching a depth of 45 feet they encountered extremely hard earth, or rock, and before quitting work last night they exploded a blast of dynamite in the bottom of the well to loosen it up.

On returning to work this morning one of the brothers went down into the well to learn the result of the explosion and the other brother, hearing no sound from below, went down to see what was the matter. He found his brother dead and before help could come he himself was overcome by the accumulation of gas in the well and died before he could be raised to the surface.

It is not known whether the deadly gas at the bottom of the well was the result of the explosion or whether it was a flow of natural gas which the discharge of the dynamite penetrated.

The young men had lived on their homestead claim nearly two years and were engaged in dry-land farming. They were brothers of Charles Miller, one of the owners of the Kremlin townsite, and were formerly of Anamoose, North Dakota.
