^neenev Flayed Bolshevism
in His Speech to Miners

Fairmont Coal Region
Miners are working evory day at the 1
operation of the Davis Coa! and Colce
company; at Weaver, Randolph county,
according. to tho information that
reached this city today. This is also
reported to be true of tho mines at i
Arden. < _
The boost in that region is said to-be
dne to some business in railroad fuel, I
supposedly Western Maryland orders.
Fiayt Bolshevism.
Bolshevism was flayed in an addrees
by C. F. Keeney, Charleston,
president of District 17, United Mine
Workers, yesterday afternoon before
1,000 miners at the Bight Hoar Day
celebration at Rivesvilie. He said in
"i sent a circular letter out some
weeks ago, which I desire to explain
at this time. The United Mine Workers
of America have done more for the
liiners than any other organization
ever can hope to and it objects to L
W. W.s or agy other radical policies
that still bring about its destruction,"
The laws of the United Mine .Workers
stand for Ute expulsion of members
who cherish such idiya&as bolshevism
and if the local does not have
spine enough to expell them 1 will go
there and expell them myself. Much
is cloaked in bolehevism. Perhaps you
niwlorotanii hnlrfiovJdm. NftithBr
do I, but 1 am opposed to supporting
any such radical movements.
The opening part of Mr. Kenney's
address dealt with the history of the
eight hour dav. It was started in 1898 j
in Illinois, where the miners had to
submit to a cut in wages in order to
establish it. The idea President
Keeney stated was one of years of |
standing having been advocated by
John Synie, of Pottsville, fa., fifty
years'ago ? shortly after the Civil j
war. His own followers persecuted
him, although ho was an ardent believer
in the rights of the working
man and a "real labor leader" as Mr.
j Keeney put it. Ho recalled how Synio
went to Indianapolis from Pittsville,
Pa., on foot to attend conventions,
which had probably but 2,000 or 3,000
miners represented in its membership.
Forty-oight- years afterwards on the
same spot.? Pottsville, Fa.?John P.
White, international prosidoht of the
United Mine Workers of America, inaugurated
the Eight Hour Day.
Tho Eight Hour Day did cot make
its. appearance in the state of Wost
Virginia until April 1, 1917, when Mr.
Keeney inaugurated it after a tenure
of office of only a few months. Last
f year the Kanawha Coal Operators' Association
with operations in the southern
part of the state sanctioned the
day and upon tho letting down of the
non-union bars in the Fairmont field it
was celebrated here this year.
