The attitude' of the miner of the H Fairtpbarfc 'district with reference to "pmtiifiifnm: and willingness to P_. "staytoitthe Job and produce coal." is H cteuljr teought out in an article writ ten by TV- JB. Taylor, a Clarksburg miner, and published in Friday evenI tag's Clarksburg Telegram. | Mr.;Taylor \ refers to the many pamphlets' and other requests from the Fuel administration'* urging the mtaerto-"stay on the Job," sad brings tout that such articles are- all right and | doubtless ih> much good in certain dlsa tricts. bnt because of the very baa car supply in the Fairmont district f they do riot apply, as a general rule, to this district 1 pi." Coal prodncing sections on the fol ? lowing railroads are getting a 100 pei cent car supply: Northern and We it era, Virginian, C. and O.. penasylva Bit nia. New York Central, "Western Mary F land, B- and O. fn Ohio, B. and O- in Pennsylvania. For some reason H V seems" almost impossible for the B I and O." to get an adequate car supply for this district. During the month of September the mines of the legion were able to load only 50.8 per cent of their rating be f cause of the poor car supplyThe-fetter written by W. 9. Tayloi follows: T# the "Editor of the TelegramSir. There has been a cry all th? time abont the miner staying on hit -y; Job, - Now, I am a miner and am dead 7,:' anxious to work and want to wort every day, and I believe that my bud kIL <<l?a ovo oil ??* atlYinnd In wort S> as 1 am and -willing to produce all the - coaitbat they can. bnt we cannot gel J the railroad cars to load it in. B To give the public some idea hov r it is; will just take this month. Eacl mine, is supposed to get an eaua i' share of cars and the mines that 1 am working at seems to be workin; as regular as any of the rest of the " mines. Wednesday, the second oi m? month. I had three hours work; 5j on- Thursday three hours work; or \ Friday none at all; Saturday five J hours work; Tuesday, the eighth. five B hours and Wednesday none at all & Now this is tho ninth of the montl and on .an average of my loading 1 have lost twenty-three cars ?r forty six tons of coal that 1 could have Bf produced if I could have got to worli t .full time. There Xre about thirty o; us miners at this same mine and as anxious to work and produce all th< coal that we can. You see it is no; thd miners' fault in regard to, the coa shortage, as the ptablic in genera would believe. I The operator is saying that he W Is short of men. which is the reasor 6that he cannot produce the coal tha; f?r': is needed. If the men that at> work - lng in the mine can get all the cars ' , that they want to load there will be ' plenty of cos* and to spare- Make the kick where it belongs and noi " kick the poor miner and try to make the public believe that-the miner is lazy and docs not want to work They have pledged their support tc " - .the government and can not make ' their pledge good on account of no: JF getting the cars. There is not a mar more willing to get the coal than the . miner but he is. not given the chance. ' v * Every day. there is some ciresulai sent, out urging jhe miner to Produce more coal and to stay on the Job ant . , every public speaker that you heai Ways to the miner that he must pre . ffuce more coal and to stick on the job full time or make overtime. Hon y can you make overtime when yoi fete* can't make full time? Give us ful: . ' time and we will show the publie what we can do in the coal produc W tion. If yon think that the we cannot produce:all the coal that the gov ernment needs try the miner and he will show you that he is there witl the goods and the muscle and chucli lhll of patriotism and wi]] nevei flinch when it comes to fighting foi democracy. Give'us the cars-to loac ' the coal in and we will give all the -coal that! it takes to run all the en gines that the country has and roasi Li the kaiser too. - The miner feels lika it is unjusi for him to be jabbed at all the time when he is doing the best to give the country all that it wants and does noi ' have a chance and then kicttSS be cause It is not done. Now give ue the cals and we will show the fue administrator that we mean Jusl what we say.-^We will always he righi there on the job the full time ar> . - then if that it not enp'igh we will stay a little longer. But all we ask is to give us cars to keep us on tb< . - ' m. Now, T am just an average minei ^ W>d l fall short not less than fiftj B^mns of coal every month. Just.think fthousands of miners losing W. ^^Kane aid what it means in the pro - ductlon? .' Now we appeal tr the men that arc at the head of this thing to go aftei the right parties and not the minei -and give the miner the work that be heeds- and the praise that is due him ' for his loyalty for he is always on : the job and never flinches even if be is. being.'kicked all the time. I he ' lieve that the miner, has been more patriotic than any other class ol B working men there is in the country and lie deserves more credit than he is getting and think that he should hare it ar at least his just dues. 1 > hope that this wDl help the car short. age as it Is .intended to show the p-y,lie that It is not the miners' fault that there's not the coal mined that the country needs.
