George E. Chinn was arrested in Louis

on a charge of stealing a horse from a

This town is almost destitute of a
church-building. The old Union Church
was destroyed by fire in 1872, and since
then we have had no piece of worship
save the old Methodist Church, which is
getting very shackling and uncomfortable
in bad weather. Several efforts have
been made to build a new church. by first
one and then another denomination, but
all without success, because a sufficient
sum was not subscribed. Now we sug
gest that we all go in together and build
a first-class Union Church, a large por
tion of the monev to build" a church

The Presbyterians can occupy it the first"

and when a fifth Sabbath occurs in a

of trustees to tnke charge of it, one from

The Troable sit the Reader Coul
There has been no blood shed yet, and.
we sihcerely trust that everything will be
settled amicably. The cause of the
trouble is nlout as follows: On or about 1
the 1st 1 December, 1874, the price
Kentucky cal increased in Louisville a
liltle, find the miners claimed that the
company had promised to increase their
wages so soon as the." price of coal ad
vanced. The company did. not regard
the'rise in coal as, being permanent, and
refused to increase the miners' wages.
The consequence was a 'general strike
among the miners in this section. About
this time a large fleet of barges of coal
rom Pittsburgh reached Louisville and
the price of coal declined.
The miners, seeing they had made a
mistake, offered toigo to work at the old
price, .which was 75 cents per ton. All
the epal companies, except the Render,
accepted. 'their offers, who refused to pay
their hands more than 65 cents per ton.
This the miners refused to submit to.
The company then employed a few ne
groes to mine at 62jceutg. The miners
i-e and -elsewhere in this region, a good
ly number of them,' mustering between
fifty and one hundred, visited the mines
and demanded .that the negroes desist
working at that pries. After some par.
leying. the negroes quit work, and mat
ters now standing in that condition. There
is no disposition on the part of the while
miners to deprive the negroes of the right
to work in the mines, but they do object
to the price that these negroes were
working for,-fearing that if the Render
company succeeded in getting their coal
mined at these figures all the other com'
panics would follow suit, and try the
same experiment. We are assured that
there is no conflict of races here, but it
is the same world-old conflict between
labor and capital. Labor and capi
tal are equally dependent on each other,
and.we hope the company and the miners
will each concede what is right and prop
er, and everything go on harmoniously
and thus avoid the possibility. of the, re

the Democrats in numbers. Their vic

about by the lethargy of Republicans
There is nothing to. discourage Republi

must now foreshadow their policy, in

should be lessened. The fees 'of stale-officers
should be curtailed. They were ad
vanced about thirty-three and a third per
cent, during the war, in consequence of
the great difference between greenbacks
and gold, and as thatching' no louger.ex

The action of the contestingi-board in
the Joncs-Cocb'ran case shows a spirit of
reform. .There have been unpleasant

all Democrats,-and I believe the party
will not abandon lU position. .We are. all
interested in the great financial question",
and. it is hoped that Congress wilt .dp
