NO ELECTION FOR TRUSTEE THIS YEAR Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 1. No election for county school trustees will be held in Kentucky next Tuesday, Judge Krnest .S.

The jict of 1922 providing for the election of trustees from districts beginning in 1!)2S. re pealed the old law, Judge Clarke said, and tho law says that trustees are lected to serve until their successors tialify. Therefore the trustees whose terms would have expired In January ire to serve another .year. TWO FROM HARLAN COUNTY KILLED AT R. R.

END MINE STRIKE IN MINGO COUNTY Tent Colonies Will be Fold ed is Announcement of Secretary Mooney. Charleston, W. Va. Oct, 'JG. The dove of industrial peace settled In West Virginia's Mingo county tonight. wnen the United Mine Workers of America, through H. li. White, Inter national organizer, announced at Wil liamson the abandonment of the bitu minous coal Htrike which has been in effect in the Williamson Held since July 1, 1920. Mr. White's announcement was later conllrmed by Fred Mooney, secretary-treasurer of the Union's dis trict 17, nt headquarters here. Mr. Mooney said he was not aware of the reasons for the International hoard's abandonment of the Mingo strike but said he "presumed It was because of martial law and the oppo sition of state officials which made it Impossible for us to win there." When the strike was first called, Mr. Mooney said, between 3,600 and 3.700 men were called out, but added that "this number has dwindled consider ably." The chief effect of the settle ment, he continued, will be of allow ing these men still out "to return to work In non-union mines and the tent colonies will be abandoned." How many of these men will get work is problematical according to the statement of George Bauswine, secretary of the Williamson Coal Op erators' Association, who said the dis trict was not gottlng the best of car supply. Under normal conditions, Hausewine explained, the Held produc ed IKO.ouO tons a week, "and We have hardly, known the strike was on os far as production was concerned. Our chief worry was about car supply. There Is not a union operation in the Held." Martial law irt Mingo county was lifted several days ago. ELECTRIFYING TRACK ON N. & W.

Ashland-Russell Hard Road Opened Last Sunday Traffic estimated conservatively at no fewer than a thousand automobiles traversed the new Ashand-Russell hard road Sunday when it was thrown open to public use for the first time, says the Ashland Independent. The contractors, Langhorne & Lang home, felt that the road, while not completed, was in such shape that.lt could be used for the day to permit the people of the trl-state region to see Just how far along the work had progressed. Probably as many as five thousand persons took advantage of the opened passage and viewed with pleasure the new highway that will connect Ironton, Russell nnd Green up with Ashland, Catlettsburg and Huntington. Much work is yet to be done before the road is ready to be opened "for keeps." Only grading has been done on each end of the road and some metal and tar has been placed on the middle portion. A continual procession of cars pass ed over the road in both directions yesterday. Ashland and Catlettsburg were full of Ohio cars while Ironton saw many Kentucky and West Vir ginia people who traveled over the new road. The traffic waa such that collectors on the new bridge lost count before noon. With the opening of the road next spring with the surfacing completed the road wll he one of the most im portant highway connecting links in the trl-state region. The Greenup county portion of the road will be of macadam 20 feet wide between the Boyd county line and Russell. From Russell to Greenup. It will be 18 feet wide, running by the Ashland race track at Chinnvtlle. The Boyd county portion, Which is less than a mile, will be of brick.

" , v 7 DAMS ON BIG SANDY ARE NOW COMING INTO USE Shippers Finding the Slack water Can be Used to Advantage. The following letter from U. S. En gineer B. F. Thomas to Col. Jay H. Northup Is quite Interesting because it shows that the Big Sandy pools are coming Into use: Huntington, Oct. 26, 1922. My Dear Colonel. ': On account of a badly damuged gate the pool above Chapman dam will not be In this season. The other pools are all right and both coal and oil are coming out by barge. In August 27, 000 barrels oil and In September 20, 000 barrels went out to the refinery at Leach station, near Catlettsburg, and there had been 21,000 barrels for Oc tober up to 24th. These barges draw 4 to 4 feet 6 inches and have had wat er every day this summer haven't lost a single trip, so far as I have heard. Four small barges of coal went out Into the Ohio only a few days ago, 350 tons In the four, loaded at Tabors creek and Ft. Gay, so I heard. Other barges have preceded them. The river has been a little scarce of wat er. The Ohio Is even worse off In that regard, but pool No. 1 has "run over" every day for 3 months or more, and the others above have not been real low except Chapman where the dam is not In. With kindest regards, B. F. THOMAS. There are great possibilities tn this line. Co-operation of interests is nec essary to the development of business but thla ahould be taken up and work ed out. There is a good quality of workable coal all along both sides of the river. ; Counting the" two forks and the main Big Sandy there Is about 50 miles of barge slackwater. This coal could be developed to a point where It would keep lines of barge transportation busy. It to a well known fact that water transportation is much cheaper than rail. Never was a better time to take advantage of thla fact In getting the coal business started. Railroad freight rates will not be lowered ma terially for a long time, it we may be permitted to Judge by conditions. Before barges and boats will come into this trade, however, there must be assurance of enough business to Justi fy the venture, This can be given by organization of enough coal opera tions. The difference in cost of trans portation ought to give mines along the river a sufficient margin to offset the fact that the coal veins are not as thick as those farther up the rlv- The fact Is being demonstrated ev ery day that the coal In this Immed iate vicinity can be mined profitably. A: Fort Gay and Hubbardstown, W. a., and at East Lynn and other points a ong the N. & W.. wagon mines have en doing good business all thla sea uon. It Is estimated that nenrly S100,- "9 worth of coal has been shipped il ls year from points along the river r. thin seven miles of Louisa, all load . J from wagons, and all shipped by i i-ll except the barges mentioned in -Vr. Thomas' letter. . Of course, this h s been done on a market that is h.'gher than normal.- But for coal op enings near enough the river to load t'i onomically into barges, the heavy expense of the present method of handling would be eliminated. With tills expense saved, the coal will show a profit at average normal prices, with lower water transportation to add a n-argln. . . . Big Sandy river has been put to a severe test this season on on point that formerly was urged against the slackwater project. It is that of v,at- cr supply. There seldom has been a season with as little rainfall as this. and yet, with the locks used more than ever before, the pools have re mained full. This test should satisfy : everybody on that point. The use of the Big Sandy system has been practicable ever since the Ohio river dam Just below Catletts burg was put Into operation. Previous to that It was Impossible for boats to get out Into the Ohio when it was low. ' MARRIAGE LICENSES. Henry Sknggs, 38, of Minford, O., t Mat I s McKinster, 26, of Adams.
