Hunters are getting too common
now days. Wo think farmers should
tuko special ipalns this full to keep
trespassers off their premises. No
man bus a better right to his game
than tho farmer who raises it und this
winter ho will need every snlpo and
rabbit ho can raise. Wo hear a good
deal of complaint from different
parties of hunters shooting domestic
fowls. This is going too far. It Is
bad enough to go onto u man's land
and shoot his wild gamo but when a
hunter wilfully shoots turkeys, chick
ens, etc just to have something to
shoot ut or possibly to keep from
buying thorn it Is tlmo for them to look
out. Farmers will not stund it long.
They aro too caroless with their arms
too as a rule. Only last weok two
boys from town scarcely old enough
to know tho dunger In a gun whilo on
their way home shot tho horse they
wero driving. Although It may have
been an accident yet such accidents
happen too often. Not only to tholr
own animals but to farm stock In the
pastures. It used to bo customury
for hunters to ask permission before
going onto a farm to hunt and should
bo yet, but tho majority of hunters
now-a-days care nothing for courtosy,
law or anything olso and must not bo
allowed to run over a person just be
cause he can.

Kansas City, Aug. 27. The miners
In tho coul mines in Kansas, owned by
tho companies known as tho "Big 4,"
aro holding meetings und making
threats that thoy will strike Tho pre
liminary symptoms aro all there, but
tho season Is wrong; henco tho pros
pects of a long strike or a serious one
aro not very promising. Tho oper
ators think there is no dunger.
Strikes in coal mines arc. in ono
rospect, like tornadoos they belong
to a rising temperature. Thoy some
times begin ut other seasons, but tho
spring is tho natural tlmo for them.
With a summer before him, a striking
miner can live on cheap food. He
does not need fuol, und clothing docs
not need to liguro In his plans. But
lato in tho summer ho rniiBt tlguro that
threo months of idleness will bring
him to a condition whero he must have
expensive food. His garden will no
longer furnish tho staples and his
family will need clothing and fuel.
Most strike meetings uro hold out of
doors and there Is always an olement
of picnic llfo in tho oarly part of a
summor strike It Is ploasant then to
bo above ground In tho duytimo.
When tho wouthor getschilly tho miner
goes down to tho coul us naturally as

The operator also becomes less stub
born ut this tlmo of year, when the
market for domestic coal Is beginning
to wako up.
Tho trouble In tho "Big 4" mines is
not over wages. When tho United
Mine Workers wero holding dally
meetings In Kansas City with tho mlno
owners, generally classed as small
operators, tho Central Coal and Coko
company, which is a dominant factor
in tho "Bigs," was asked to send a
representative. G. W. Megoath, gen
eral manager, sent back word: ''Wo
will pay the men in our mines what
ever scale you may agroo upon, but
wo refuse to sign any contract with tho
United Mlno Workers. Members of
tho union may work In our mines with
out discrimination, but wo will con
tinue to hire non-union men ulso."
This was tho ultimatum and the other
"Big 4" companies inuJo practically
tho sumo announcement.
Tho operators who treat with tho
union miners reached an agreoraent
which was satisfactory to the union.
While thoy wero talking it took
about two months to Und out what
