Talked Over Gardening
Which Coal Companies
Are Encouraging.
N. C. Frame, State Agricultural
Agent, was In town today for the purpose
of conferring with the officers
of the West Virginia Coal Operator's
Association In regard to the agricultural
actialtiea in the mining communities
throughout the state.
A great deal of gardening is being
done by the miners and all of the com
panles are encouraging thla In every
possible way but it is felt that . closer
ccoperitlon between those ,vho love
direct charge of the work and the agricultural
agents is desirable and plans
of this character were discussed by
N. C. Frame and H. L. Smith in conference
with the officers of the Association.
Everything possible is being
done to live up to the slogan recently
adopted by the State Agricultural Department,
"Help West Virginia to
Feed Herself."

mob of perhaps 2,000 persons went
through the negro quarter during last
night, shot ono colored man, seriously
wounding him, beat scores into unconsciousness,
drove several hundred
negroes across the Mississippi river
bridge into St.. Louis, Mo., and then

been insulted and two white men held
up by negroes just after a committee
from the Central Trade and Labor
Union had attended a meeting of the
city council to make a protest against
the importation of any more colored
laborers into St. Louis.
Shots were fired at frequent inter
vals but only one negro is known to b 5
wounded. He fled to St. Louis and
was found there unconscious with a
bullet wound in his head and three
ribs fractured. All negroes were
searched and if armed beaten into unconsciousness.
Many negroes were given refuge in
the city Jail and at midnight police
estimates were that 2,000 persons surrounded
the building threatening to
storm it. The mob was dissuaded, bowever,
and rushed into the business
section where street cars were stopped
and saloons searched. Several
negro saloons were wrecked and Mayor
Mollman issued an order for all
bars in the city to close.
Riot calls brought the entire city
police force but the mob went virtually
Many workmen here have been Idle
on account of strikes and It Is estimated
that at least 8,000 negroes have
been Imported from the south to take
their places.
The rioting continued lntermltentlly
for over four hours. Governor
Lowden was asked to send troops but
as the National guard had been federalized
it could not answer such a
