Clelveland, March 5.—Leaders in
the nation wide strike of union min
ers, set for April 1, turned attention
today toward the winning of 200,000
non-union miners in order to have
them walk out when the union men
quit..
Support of the non-union men
seems assured, it was said by officials
of the United Mine Workers. Formal
call to non-unionists to join the strike
will be issued by the union early next
week, probably on Monday.

Indianapolis, Ind., March 25.—Sus
pension of work in the coal industry
throughout the unionized fields of the
country will directly affect more than
a half million workers in the coal
fields of twenty states. Twenty thou
sand Canadian miners also belonging
to the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica, Nova Scotia forming one union
district and the western provinces
forming another district.
The great numerical strength of the
United Mine Workers of America is
in the soft coal industry, the central
competitive field, comprising western
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illi
nois having a combined membership
of approximately 215,000. The an
thracite industry, centered in three
fields, in Pennsylvania, employs 155,
000 men, of whom approximately one
half are in the union. In past strikes,
however, the union has practically
succeeded in bringing a complete
walkout in the anthracite fields.
The approximate distribution of
union miners by states, obtained from
union sources here, is as follows:
Pennsylvania, 154,825; Illinois, 98,
000; Ohio, 49,000; West Virginia, 48,
400; Indiana, 31,000; Kentucky, 14,
900; Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas,
14,800; Iowa, 13,000; Alabama, 12,

NEAR TWO-THIRDS
TAXES UNC0I1ECTED
Taxpayers of Faulkner county are
moving with customary slowness this
year, and the grand rush before the
final day has hardly set in yet,
Sheriff W. M. Brady said today. With
only about two weeks remaining until
April 10, the final day for payment
without penalty, only 2,375 receipts
has been issued today, being only a
little more than one-third of the total
of about 7,000 to be mada out.
Some of the taxpayers, the sheriff
thinks, are hanging back on account
of a recently published rumor that
Governor McRae might again extend
the time of paying taxes without pen
alty ,as was done last year. No such
order, however, has been issued by the
governor and the latest reports from
his office are to the effect that no
proclamation of the kind will be is
sued this year.
In view of the fact that nearly two
thirds of the receipts are to be made
out in the few remaining days, Sheriff
Brady urges all taxpayers to bring
their land numbers with them when
they come to the courthouse, as much
time is lost when the lands have to
be looked up without a propoer des
cription.
Regarding the road taxes in the
three highway districts, Mr. Brady
said today that taxes, both road and
general property, are being paid if
anything a little better in these dis
tricts than in portions of the county
not in a road district. No attempt is
being made by anyone to pay prop
erty taxes without also paying the
road taxes, he said.
ACCIDENTAL SHOT
KILLS MO BOV
Ollie Price, 15-year-old negro boy,
son of Lewis Price, living six miles
southeast of Conway, died at 4 o’clock
yesterday afternoon as a result of
being accidentally shot about four
hours before. The boy, it is stated,
was in a skiff on Adams lake with
some other negroes. They had a
loaded shotgun in the boat and in
dragging it out the gun was discharg

Price boy’s leg just below the thigh.
By the time medical aid was secured
the L>oy was so weakened from the
loss of blood that it was decided not
to attempt to amputate the leg, and
he failed to respond to stimulants ad
ministered. !
