Bennett v. Howard (Kentucky), 195 Southwestern 117, p. 118.
Where coal in a mine has been mined out and the pillars in the
rooms removed the mountain over the rooms and entries has a
tendency to "creep," due to the tremendous pressure above and to
the fact that the support which held the mountain in place has been
taken away. This tendency to creep is increased when the stumps
are being removed unless removed in a proper way. Under the
creeping process the normal condition of the roof is changed and the
substances supporting it are crushed together so as to cause large
pieces of shale and other substances to be crowded out of their
natural places and fall to the ground of the mine.
Proctor Coal Co. v. Crabtree (Kentucky), 194 Southwestern 101, p. 102.
"Draw slate" is "slate" which is made loose and exposed by a
