Utah Coal Mines and Japanese People
(partial translation of original)

Coals and Minerals in Utah are known to be one of the largest amounts in western part of the United States. If Utah Fuel Company continues to produce as same amount of coals as in present time, it was said to produce for next three hundreds years. With this fact, Carbon Country was the most productive place in Utah. The oldest coal Mine Company was Pleasant Valley Coal Company (U.S. Fuel). Winter Quarters Coal Mine Company was found in 1870's. While searching for the best minerals/coals to produce Cokes for Steele Company in Salt Lake City, researchers found Castle Gate coal mine and Sunnyside coal mine. However, most of Japanese workers stayed in the coal mine in Price Area.

One of the Japanese pioneers to make a contract with the coal mines in Utah for the first time was Mr. Daigorou Hashimoto. In 1904, through Mr. Hashimoto's efforts, Castle Gate coal mine received seven experienced Japanese workers from Rock Spring, WY, with a leading Japanese boss, Mr. Nakagawa. The company put two guards to protect those Japanese workers day and night from mobs. Within two months, number of Japanese workers increased, and by 1905, the number had reached 80 workers. A first boss of the Japanese workers in Carbon County was Mr. Sato. He resided his position after 34 months later. Then came Mr. Ogura, Mr. S. Hashimoto, and in 1906 Mr. Nakagawa returned as a boss again. However, the number of the Japanese workers declined for numerous reasons. Around 1912, the Japanese workers nearly disappeared, but with effort of Mr. Hiroda, the few Japanese workers remained for a short while. Unfortunately, all the Japanese workers left despise the effort of Mr. Hiroda, a boss at the time.

In 1917, Mr. Sato reorganized a new group to work in Carbon County, and was successful to build a foundation of Japanese Camps around Carbon County.

Town Information

Sunnyside

Because of the hard works of the Japanese workers at Castle Gate coal mine, Mr. Hashimoto and Mr. Ogura were successful to make a contract with Sunnyside coal mine, and about ten Japanese workers with a boss Mr. Hisakichi Otani were sent to labor. In 1906, Mr. Kosaburo Okumura became a boss, and number of Japanese workers in Sunnyside coal mine reached about 30. In 1910, Mr. Konosuke Nakaji took Mr. Otani's position, and in the same year Mr. Kusano took the position. But the Japanese workers started to move out.

One year later, Mr. Nakaji, under Mr. Hashimoto's management, reorganized and came back to coal mine once again. About 80 Japanese workers labored at either Sunnyside coal mine or Coke ovens after the Mr. Kusano became new boss over Japanese workers. A wage of early time at coal mine for the Japanese workers was sixty-three cent per ton, average two dollars and fifty cents per day. The living condition was unspeakable for the workers; sleeping on the wooden boards, surviving with only small amount of food. The average workers made only twelve to thirteen dollars each month.

Kenilworth

In 1906, Mr. Nakagawa made a contract with Kenilworth Coal Mine Company, sent ten to 15 Japanese workers to labor including a boss Mr. Shichigoro Kuno. Then came Mr. Oue, Mr. Yamana, (and many others later years). The position was taken by person to person in a period of six years. After many changes of leadership, Mr. Watanabe who was a boss over Japanese workers at Castle Gate coal mine at the time, took position of former boss, Mr. Yamane. In the winter of 1912, there was a huge conflict and contention among general management at Coal Mine and Union, caused many deaths and grieves among workers in general. The coal mine brought about 200 guards to protect the Kenilworth coal mine, and one week later the dispute was resolved. As a result, the coal mine was agreed to be kept opened, and the Japanese workers fulfilled the loss of workers.

Clear Creek

In 1908, 37 out of 200 workers were Japanese workers, under the leadership of Mr. A. Nakagawa, through the effort of Mr. Hashimoto's management, sent to Clear Creek coal mine. After many changes of leadership, Mr. Hiroda of Kouchi-ken, Japan, took a position to be a boss in 1924.

Two years later, Mr. Kurino became a boss, and brought Japanese workers back, and in 1921 Mr. Seshita took Mr. Kurino's postion.

Rains

In 1915, with a leadership of Mr. Nishihara, few Japanese workers started to labor at Rains coal mine. During a leadership, Mr. Nishihara, there were many conflicts and contention over Union and management at the coal mine. As a result, many died, many left the mine. After the settlement of agreement by Union, Mr. Misaki led Japanese workers to mine to work. Then Mr. Yamaguchi took Mr. Misaki's position. There were total numbers of 63 people including five families living in this Japanese Camp in 1922. Most of them worked as technician, constructor, and mechanic. Rains coal mine had a genuine trust over Japanese workers.

Cameron

In 1915, with a leadership of Mr. Maeda, few workers submitted to labor at Cameron coal mine, however, Japanese distinct from this mine shortly after. But in 1922, Cameron coal mine was combined with Rolapp coal mine, and this change brought few Japanese workers back to this mine. Mr. Tanaka was a boss over Japanese workers in 1924.

Panther

Mr. Wada brought many of his workers to labor at railroad in this area at first. In 1917, few Japanese workers were brought under a leadership of Mr. Yanamoto, and following year, Mr. Sato became a boss over 32 Japanese workers.

Wattis

Wattis coal mine was operated under Lion Coal Company at first. In 1919, through the effort of many Japanese managers at various coal mines, Mr. Tanimura obtained a job to be an electrician at this mine. He had encouraged to invite more Japanese workers to the mine, and through his effort, Japanese Camp was organized at this coal mine with a leadership of Mr. Nishiguchi in 1920. However, Japanese workers distinct after three years later despite the fact they labored very hard.

New Standard

In 1922, Mr. Nakamura made a contract with New Starndard coal mine to send the Japanese workers.

Summary

This is the name and history of each coal mine we were informed. There were many facts which haven't been told from each place because of the frequent changes of each coal mine. One day's information would be totally change in another day. Many boss had been changes, so did many people's work places. One interesting point of Utah's agriculture business around this time was strike conflict and Unionization of coal mine. Even in this point of time, if strike happens in one coal mine, the coal mine fires the strikers and threw them out of the area to somewhere else. Greeks and Italians who were the majority of the coal mine population fired every time they strike, and Japanese workers started to replace coal mines' manpower. It was said that, "Strikes (at the coal mines) brought the spirit of brotherhood among Japanese people in Utah coal mine business", meaning each strike brought more job among Japanese people.

  1. Please note that "single" doesn't mean those people weren't married. There were a lot of Japanese workers who left their family to come here to work. Workers sent their financial support by working in the United States. Also some of the workers didn't have their close relatives, therefore, their status might not be available to the public.

  3. Many of them were employed by Utah Fuel Company; however, it was unsure which coal mine section (Castle Gate, Hiawatha, Kenilworth, etc.) they were belonged to in this time of collection.
