Tt special train bringing member
of Company A and others of the 6th
reg&nent, who spent the paet 10 days

Island yesterday evening, thereby
bringing to a close what was probably
the most eventful trip the company
baa taken since the Spanish-American
var. Officers and men alike were en-
thuelastlo regarding the trip, but were
not sorry to get back after tbelr stren
uous experiences In the drills and ma
neuvers with the regulars.
LAST WIGHT ETKTim.
Following 1" what happened to the
company during the last few lays as
recounted by Lieutenant V. A. Hall:
At 2 o'clock Wednesday morning we
were all awakened by crash after
crash of thunder bo terrific that It
made the ground tremble. Coming
with the thunder was a wind storm
that blew over nearly all of the email
tents In the entire camp and turning
over svral of the !arg ernes occupied
by the officers. It then began to rain
as If all the waters In the clouds was
trying to fall at the Fame time.
To cap the climax, one of the tents
caught fire, and together with i?s con
tent, was destroyed, the Inmates man
aging to escape, nowever.
LAST Bin MKI VF.R.
Monday afternoon began th last big
maneuver of the encampment. The
Ch Illinois, the 4th South Dakota, and
a battalion of United States cavalry
were opposed to the entire provisional
regiment of regulars and two battal
ions of United States cavalry. The
first engagement occupied the after
noon, and resulted In the capture of
our outposts under Cnpta'n Lyons of
Molina, by the regulars, and at night
we bivouacked as best we could with
our pup tents, the men proparing their
own meals from food carried In the
haversacks. In the morning, indica
tions of rain prevented a resumption
of hostilities, and we prepared to
march five miles back to camp. Before
we were on the way half an hour, it
began raining, and for two hours we
struggled along through a most dis
agreeable downpour. It was a terrible
march and gave us an idea of the hard
ships of real war.
Camp looked mighty good to us and

The coal mined in Illinois In 1911

with a value at the mines of $59,503
278, according to a statement by Ed
ward W. Parker, just issued by the
United States geological survey.
These figures, compared with those
of the year previous, show an increase
in tonnage of 7.778.S72 tons, and in val
ue of $7, 097, SSI. Much of this gain is
to be explained by the abnormally low
production of 1910 due to the strike.
The coals of Illinois are non-coking
and are not used to any extent in the
iron and steel industry. Consequently
coal mining in the state was not in
fluenced by the depression in the iron
trade which so eerlously reduced coal
production in the eastern states.
Illinois is. however, one of the most
important manufacturing states, rank
ing third in this particular and leading
all the states of the union in the manu

and in the salting and packing of
Fifty-one counties, or exactly half of
the 102 counties in th? state, more coal
producing counties than in any olher
state in the union, produced coal in
1911. Two counties, Williamson and
Sangamon, produced over 5,000,000
tons each; one, Macoupin, produced
more than 4,000.000 tons; and each of
five other counties produced more than

There was little or no trouble from
strikes in Illinois in 1911 and the 76,
CfiO miners employed worked an aver
age of 18S days; the average produc
tion for each man was 701 tons.
One of the apparent resuHs of the
prolonged strike in 1910 was the mark
ed increase in 1911 in the tonnage of
coal run by machines, from 17,730,208
short tons in 1910 to 23.093,807 tons in
