DIED OF MENINGITIS.
Powerful Remedies Used, but the
Disease Could Not be
Malvin Brooks, aged' about 22
years died at 2:10 p. m., Sunday
May 13, 1899 of spinal meningitis
at the home of Mr. Littlcpage,
a short distance east of Earlington,
after an illness of only one week.
Dr. E. A. Chattcn administered a
serum which was a combination of
two serums which he thought
might control the disease and al
though the severity of the case
seemed for a time to be mitigated,
it would not yield. There is a
question whether the remedy might
not have a more decided effect if
it could be administered earlier
in the illness than was possible in
this case. Some such discovery is
greatly needed in this day of tho
hopeless ignorance of how to curb
this dreadful malady and science
and humanity could not better be
served than by such discovery.
The doctor has been eminently
successful in the use of anti-toxinc
for diphtheria and'it is to be hoped
that success will follow his efforts
with scrum for meningitis.
The wife of Mr. Sam Rose died
at Earlington at the home of her
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Sadler?, Wednesday morning, May
to at 5 o'clock, of consumption.
Mrs. Rose has been a sufferer of
that dreadful disease for several
months and she was removed to
her fathcrla a month or two ago
and was never .able to return
home. But God in his wisdom
saw proper to call her away from
this sinful world to a better home
above. She leaves five children,
a husband, her parents and two
brothers and three sisters to mourn
her loss, besides a host of friends
who will grieve after her. Mrs.
Rose was a fond mother and an af
fectionate wife and loved by all
who knew her. She was a sweet
woman and had a loving disposi
tion, and it was so hard to give
her up, but God knows best in all
things, and Wednesday morning
the dark angel of death visited the
home of the little family and
gently took her away from them
and she has gone to a better home,
where she will have no more suf
fering, but all is peace. Mrs.
Rose was 30 years of age and had
been a constant member of the
Baptist church until about a year
ago, when she joined the Christian
Church at Kelly. Her remains
were taken to Boy's cemetery
Thursday eve at 2 o'clock, where
she was laid to rest in her peace
ful grave. A Friend.
Wants Visit From the Nashville.
From lbs Globe-Democrat.
An Evansville delegation, in
cluding Gen. Supt. Martin, of the
Louisville and.Nashville Railroad;
Lieut. James Gray, who was navi
gator of the Yankton during tho
late war; Judge . E. Williamson;
E. S. Sonhtag, a well-known mer
chant; T. N. Honeywell, an attor
ney; II. Roosa, editor of the
Evansville Courier, was in the city
yesterday, and spent the greater
part of the day in an endeavor to
persuade Commander Maynard to
make a trip with the gunboat
Nashville up the Ohio to Evans
ville. Their efforts were futile,
and the committee wired Senator
Fairbanks, of Indiana, requesting
that he urge the Navy Department
to issue the necessary orders, as
they were informed that unless
such orders were received the gun
boat would make no extended
stops this side of New Orleans.
While here one of the party said
he learned that one reason the stay
of the vessel had been cut short
was that the commanding officer
is expecting orders to go to Blue
fields, where there has been con
siderable trouble between the
natives and Americans.

From the Hustler. '
"Mr." W. A. Nisbct has kindly
donated the use of the Armory to
Christian Endcavorers during the
Convention, this week. Tables,
chairs, water, etc, will be provided
so that people from the country
can leave their baskets, and attend
the services morning and evening
at the tabernacle near by. A re
liable man will be at the Armory
to take charge of your baskets, and
attend to your wishes. Tho En
dcavorers arc exceedingly anxious
to have a large attendance from
each church in the coutry. Every
denomination is cordially invited
to come. We trust that you will
not consider the townspeople not
hospitable, in only making ar
rangements for you to have a place
to take your baskets, but we have
500 or Coo delegates to provide
homes for, consequently our little
town will be taxed to its utmost.
Be sure to come and hear the
chorus of 250 voices.
The opening services of the State
C. E. Convention will be held at
the Tabernacle Thursday night.
The service will'be largely devoted
to singing. The music will be

The Confederate Hug.
From the Louisville Free Press.
The Confederates around here
ought to feel pretty foolish and
they probably do. Here for years
the "Daughters of the Confed
eracy" have been going around
having festivals and strawberry
suppers and things, and the boys
who wore the gray have not
seemed to know a good thing when
they saw it.
But just consider what the gal
lant old Gen. John B. Gordan did
at Charleston the other day at the
Confederate reunion. Two plump
widows, Mrs. Davis and Mrs.
Stonewall Jackson, came on the
stand; did the old soldier hand
them around or pass them up?
Not much. "I am going to hug
her," said the General; and he did
hug Mrs. Jackson. Hereafter it
may not be too much to expect
that the Confederate veterans will
know how to treat the ladies.

DOWN IN THE MINES.
It is a fact beyond successful contra
diction that the St. Bernard Coal Com
pany have, by Ibe quality of tbeir coal and
fair dealings, established such a trade
throughout the United States and Mexico
that the assailing of them or tbeir coal by
Secretary Kennedy, of the U. M. W. wilt
avail nothing. This coal has been on the
market for about thirty years and so popu
lar has it grown with the consumers that
for many years tbey have been unable lo
supply demands during Ibat season of the
year when coal Is needed.
Kennedy, of Ibe United Mine Workers,
in an interview published in the Evansville
Journal admits that the Earlington mines
cannot be organized by bis organization,
which shows how futile have the efforts of
his representatives been hero the past few
years and confirms the fact that the miners
here prefer a condition of peace and har
mony to that of strikes and poverty.
Thomas Longstaff has severed bis con
nection with the Co-operative Coal Com
pany who are now sinking a new shaft.
There are few belter practical miners than
he is and bis services will prove valuable
The admission is made by labor agitat
ors that the St. Bernard Coal Company is
now paying more for mining coal than they
demand, yet if their advice had been lis
tened to, the miners here would have many
times thrown up their work and lived on
the charity ot other miners who chanced
lo be at work.

A dispatch from Springfield, III., last
week says: "The jury in the case against
the Springfield Coal operators' Associa
tion, charged with violating the antl-trnst
lawa, which has been on trial for a week
in the Circuit court, returned a verdict of
not guilty, afler being out six boors. This
is the second time tbe case has been tried,
tbe first time resulting in a mistrial, the
jury disagreeing. The plea ot defense
made by tbe association was Ibat it is for
tbe purpose of maintaining wages, and to
Ibis fact many coal miners testified."
Tbe largest cargo ot coal ever shipped
from Baltimore left that port this week in
tbe steamer Westminster, which carries
5,300 tons ot Georgia Creek coal. Tbe
coal was shipped by tho Consolidated
Coal Company for Admiral Dewey's ships
at Manila. She wilt go through tbe Suez
An interesting calculation has been
made, which shows Ibat the energy pro
duced by a pound of good coal equals the
work of one man for one day. One square
mile of a seam ot coal only four feet deep
could therefore be made to exceed tbe
work of 1,000,000 men for ao years.
Manager Ben W. Robinson ot the Whit
ley Coal Company was here this week on a
visit and business trip. He Is just recov
ering from an injury lately received in the
mine by slate falling on him. This is the
third accident he has met with tbe past
few months, one time falling from a coal
tip, and another time beiog struck by a
compress lever knocking him unconscions,
and with all Ihese mishaps, Ben is still
full of visa and vigor, but longs to be back
among friends here.

reports are true,
Tbe Illinois State -Board ot Arbitration
below says of compulsory arbitration:
Compulsory arbitration, that is, a law
compelling employers and employes to
submit tbeir differences' to arbitration, is
opposed by tbe board. The report says:
"While we favor legislation which recog
nizes some measure of mutual obligation
between employer and employe and tbe
obligations of both lo the general public,
and in furtherance of these obligations
legislation which will hold out tbe strong
est possible Inducements to both employer
and employe to adjust differences by arbi
tration, we do not favor a compulsory ar
Tbe only conspicuous example of a com
pulsory arbitration law, tbe report says, is
that of New Zealand, but it is pointed out
that conditions in New Zealand are totally
different from conditions which prevail in
tbe United States. "Wo are 'firmly con
vinced," says tho report, "That such a
law, leaving ont ot consideration all con
stitutional difficulties in ibe way of its en
actment, would be fraught with tremen
dous danger, imperiling the interests of
both employer and employe. Both the
federal and State constitutions provide
that no person shall be deprived of life,
liberty or property without due process of
law. The right to' choose wbom one will
employ and for whom one will work is
one of the chief liberties ot men. A legis
lative enactment can not take away this
liberty, nor can It create an agency clothed
with tbe power of confiscating property.
Compulsory arbitration would. make the
Board of Arbitration tbe most auloc'ratic
tribunal in tbe State, transcending the
power and authority ot all courts, the ab
solute master of working men and their
employers, tho keeper of tbeir liberties
and the arbiters of tbeir fortuns."
It is important, tbe report says, to make
a careful distinction between the compul
sory obedience to decisions in cases volun
tarily submitted by tbe parties lo the con
troversy. When both employer .and em
ployes voluntarily agree lo refer tbeir dif
ferences to arbitration they enter into a
contract which ought to be enforced.
"But," says tbe report, "a law which
takes from tbe men tbe right to freely
make contracts of employment and service
which clothes three persons wilb absolute
authority to make and enforce such con
tracts for all the people of the State,
thereby imperilling properly and depriving
men of a fundamental liberty, Is an en
tirely different proposition, amounting lo
a revolution In tbe law of the land, over
turning a principle which has endured
from tbe.beginning qf our government and
which is now so. firmly established as to
have become canonized In American con
stitutional law'." Springfield News.
