NOT LOOKING FOR PEACE
Charleston, W. VaSept 14.
The mine owners do not want
peace in "the Kanawha district,
now under martial law.
Thomas Cairns, president of
the West Virginia United Mine
Workers, wrote the company

Miners and operators will meet
in the statehouse today if the
mine owners condescend to ac

The miners will meet on one side
of the corridorj the owners on
the other. Gov. Glasscock will bev

maker. o o

voice. "Very late! Half an hour
late! Too late!" He glared fierce

didn't you bring me your report
at 11 o'clock as I told you to?"
"I'm sorry, sir," said the de
faulting detective, "but I I
didn't know the time."
"Didn't know the time?" shott
ed the inspector, very red in he
face. "Nonsense, sir! You must
have known the time! A detec

And, besides, you have your
