TOWN ALL SHOT TO PIECES AS1
RESULT OF STRIKE
Fort Smith, Ark., July 18. As a
climax to the coal mine strike which
started last April the tipples and head
house of mine No. 3 and the tipple,
head house and other buildings at the
Anchor mine of the company were
blown up by dynamite and destroyed
by fire.
The mining town of Frogtown was
shot up twice at night during the
last four days. Guards and non-union
employes of the company's No. 4
mine were blamed. It is reported that
several persons have been shot, but
the rumors have not been verified.
All business has been suspended.
Telephone wires have been cut. Wo
men and children are being removed
from the strike scene.
TO USE MEDIATION
Federal mediation has been ac
cepted by both sides in the trouble
between the engineers and firemen
and the western railroads. Previous
ly the men had refused mediation,
because in the past they have learned
that a mediation award amounted to
little to the bosses if they latter
should happen to get the worst of it.
However, the men took the matter
under consideration yesterday and
agreed to accept the offer of the
United States board of mediation and
conciliation.
The board will arrive in Chicago
Monday. The members are Chair
man Wm. L. Chambers, Federal
Judge Martin, Judge Martin A. Knapp
and Ass't Commissioner G. W. W.
Hanger.

WISDOM
There was a man in our town,
And he was wondrous wise;
He put" in bids for city work,
For buildings and supplies.
And if he heard his bid was high,
With all his might and main,
He "saw" the man who tipped him off
off,
. And made it low again. Puck,
