Owing to the numerous eviction

arrived in Fairmont today.
After a hearing before a local

There are probably a half dozen

OGDEN MAKING
GOODSHOWING

Greatly Pleased With Outlook
at PresentBy
THE WATCHMAN.
A quiet week-end politically has
drifted by and the stare of a new
period of days gives little indication
that there will be any big political
explosion of any sort this
week. But politics is just like basebail,
in that one never can tell
when something may bob up to upset
the dope.
Ben Rosenbloom hopped into the
rarp for the ReDublican nomination
for Congress in the first West Virginia
district on Saturday. There
was no great stir in the politica.
pool when Ben, hit the waters, because
many people had a pretty
good hunch that he was going to
make the leap. The announcement
of Maj. M. M. Neely for United
States senator is said to havegiven
Rosenbloom the final cut to get going.
>.c!j
There is still a little talk 'here
and there about Cornwell or ,Chilton
or both ye't getting into the race
for the Democratic nomination for
United States senator against
Neely. However, it is generally accepted
now that Cornwell will not
come in and that Chilton will stay
out in Neely's favor, despite a great
amount of pressure that, it is said,
is being brought to bear upon the
Kanawha County political leader.
County headquarters for H. C.
Ogden of Wheeling, candidate for
the Republican nomination for Uni- j
ted States senator, were formally
opened today in the Bethlehem
Building. The offices are on the
second floor in rooms 206. 207 and
207. The telephone number is
1993. Mr. Ogden's campaign is
said to be going along nicely in this
section, and Mr. Ogden, it is said,
feels that he will get a big vole in
Marion County.
William G. Conley of Charleston,
who is chairman of the committee
handling Mr. Ogden, is very well
pleased with the situation at this
time. On Saturday Mr. Conley
gave out a statement after he returned
to Wheeling from a trip
over four of the congressional districts
of the state in whch he said
that he felt sure that Mr. Ogden
would carry at least four and perhaps
five of the districts in the
state.
"My trip over four of the districts,"
said Mr. Conley, "during
which I have covered twenty-five
counties in whole or in part, leads
me to believe that H. C. Ogden will

AND PROTESTANTS
UNITE Jf^APPEAL
Operators Chiefly Blamed for
Nation-Wide Walkout
of MinersWASHINGTON,
June 19.?
President Harding was asked today
to take steps to end the coal
strike in a joint appeal presented
to him by the commission on the
church and social service of the
Federal Council of Churches,
with which are affiliated thirty
great Protestant communions, the
department of social action of the
National Catholic Welfare Council
and the social justice commission
of the Central Conference of
American Rabbis. This is the
first time, as far as is known, that
these representative organizations
of Protestants, Roman Catholics
and Jews have taken joint action
in art - industrial matter. The
churches in their appeal asked the
president:
To call a national coal conference
To gel the facts of the coal industry
through a government investigation
Not to wait until the suffering
women and children of the mining
camps has become a national
calamity, and
To end the coal strike now.
The statement expresses gratification
that the press, as a whore,
has been successful in recording
the facts in.the strike. The appeal
of the churches in full is as follows:
"To the President of the United
States:
"We desire to express to you,
on behalf of the three great religious
organizations that we represent,
our conviction that the
time has arrived when our gov
? m jf.f trx hrinv about
a conference in the bituminous
coal industry to end the present
strike. "We believe that the majority
of the people of this country
are unwilling to have its vitally
important industries subject, to
economic combat as a means of
settling disputes.
"Whenever either disputant in
a controversy declines to employ
the methods of conference and
arbitration, it becomes proper for
the government to intervene. It
is inconceivable that public action
should wait until the sufferings of
women and children in mining
towns should have reached the
proportions of a national calamity.

church and social service of the

urging government action looking
toward the settlement of the coal
controversy. At that time it was

pointed out that the operators in
comprising Illinois, Indiana, Ohio

pledged themselves two years previously
to confer with the union
in order to negotiate a new contract.
We wish to express our
approval of the action- of the administration
in publicly fixing
responsibility for the failure of
such a conference upon certain of
the coal operators who were unwilling
to be governed by the
terms of their agreement. Our
resolution further called the attention
to the lack of accurate information
concerning the facts
necessary to a just settlement of
controversy and urged that a

principal point of attack of defense

J. E. Wilburn, charged with

Ike Wilburn, son of the defending

County prior to the killing of
rohn Gore, the deputy with whose
leath Wilburn is charged. Upon
state objection of the defense,

idvieement. L. B. LePage, the succeeding
witness, stated that he linemen
a mine foreman at Sovereign,
vhich was on the firing line during

excitement at Sovereign and

mces and told of residents leaving *

LePage denied" the allegation that
le threatened Roe or had been indicated,
but admitted that he told |
Roe to "tell the truth" and had
'taken a drink," during the eve
ling.
The -witness also told the jury
through questioning by state's at- ,
torneys of a car of a mine superintendent
being fired on from the
hills. He stated tlso that members
of the United Mine Workers were
hostile to the deputies of Logan.
The prosecution objected to Le
Page telling why the union was
opposed to the deputies, during

sustained by the court.
John Allen, Jeffrey miner, testified
that the miners at Clothier
commandeered a train on the
night of August 26 to go to Madison

against the reported invasion of
Blair by Logan deputies. Both he

Developments of the last twentybur
hours included:
A statement by Ben W. Hooper
chairman of the Railroad Laboi
Board, predicting adjustment of tht
-ailroad situation without a strik:
ind peace on the roads by nexl
"all.
Statements to the board by leaders
of the rail unions condemning
:he wage reductions and serving
lotice that a strike, if favored ir
;he referendum, will be sanctioned
jy union chiefs.
Word from Washington thai
President Harding intends to bacb
:he board, which has no power it
self under the Transportation Acl
:o enforce its decisions.
Gradual abandonment by t.he car
iers of their system of putting
work out- at contract,- a system
which' has been one' of the barrier?
:o peace, was predicted by Mr
Hooper.
Following the lead of the south
prn Pacific, other railroads are ex
pected to speedily do away with
he labor contracts, the board chair
nan said.
Referring to charges by a leading
ailroad periodical that the board
was completely dominated by the
wishes of labor organizations and
:o more recent accusations by the
inions that the wage reductions
were a "miscarriage of justice,"
Mr. Hooper asserted that a "dispriminating
public will find the
ruth at a point about half way
petween these two extremes."
If the unions and the railroads
espect decisions of the board a
'air-minded public will stand for
rothing else, he declared. The
strike referendum is expected tc
pe completed by next Sunday, five
lays in advance of the wage reducions.

"If they insist on continuing
