Miners March
and Attempt <

Il ?
Marchers Forced to Leave
al I Company Property at
Hughes Mine by Sheriff.
Weary of foot but still determined
in spirit, several hundred
miners who have been
marching over the Fairmont
section since early morning
were resting in little groups
y on the highway just outside
the Hughes mine of the Robinson
Coal Co. at Norwood at 3
o'clock. Some of them evidenced
a desire to return
home while others wanted to
remain in order to interview v
iy the workers when they came
ih off the property. No final decision
had been reached at this
)n time.
iC
r_ Two large trucks with light
loads entered the mine prop/e
erty shortly before 3 o'clock.
ie There was some supposition
st that the workers might be j
r brought out In these trucks,
although this was merely one
of the many rumors in connects
tion with events of the day.
^ Hess than half of the three hundred
and fifty miners who this
morning marched through Fairmont
, were at the Hughes mine of the
~ Robinson Coav Co. near Norwood
c at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, after
w~ making attempt to close both the
Hughes mine and the Hoult mine.
l' the latter belonging to the Sliam&
rock Fuel Co. The miners left the:
company property at the Hughes]
mine this afternoon only after
n- Sheriff J. D. Charlton and his depn~
uties had ordered them to.
e" The men gathered about the
1 opening of the Hughes mine at Nor-.
| wood early this afternoon and left]
sejthe mine property shortly after 2
y- o'clock when Sheriff Charlton oro-ldered
them off. They moved to the)
s-j roadway about 100 yards distant,
r-| where they sat down on the bank,
re Every automobile that passed was
h, stopped and the occupants inter
5; rogated.
11. Reporter Questioned
ir- A reporter of The West Virgin
o-iian was asked if he was Frank
& Amos who is prosecuting attorney
of Marion County. When he
iy answered in the negative, he was
IS" asked if tbe car had called to:
Amos. This brought another ncga;r"
tive answer, and the reporter was
ordered to move on. After a mo
ment. the order was repeated and
^ a large crt^wd of miners began to
rn collect about the car. The rea_
rort.er moved on.
The miners refused to make any
4 statement but persisted in asking
a great many questions about the
u- county officials.
ie Sheriff Charlton said at the
mine this afternoon that when
protection was asked at the
? Hughes mine. several officers
^ jumped into a machine and hasten'
ed to the mine immediately
"When we arrived, we found the
miners on the company property,
j and at once forced them to leave
; and go out on the highway. That
' is all we have to sav.' the sheriff
.said, adding, "We removed tho
I miners from the nroDertv."
Arrive at 7 o* Clock.
The miners came into this city
shortly after 7 o'oclock. Entering
Fairmont from the general
direction of Monongah, they
marched down Fairmont avenue,
across South Side bridge into the
business section, down Cleveland
f-J avenue over the old river bridge

U. S- Chamber of Commerce
Man Declares Need of
Homes ExtensivePROVIDENCE,
R. T.. June 23.?
The shortage of dwellings for the
country as a whole is today estimated
at somewhat over two and a
half years' production, John Ihlder,
manager of the civic development
department. United States Chamber
of..Commerce, said today in at
address before the National Conference
of Social Work here. In
some cities the shortage is estimated
a"- nearly four years' production,!
in others, at approximately one and
a half years, and even less, Mr.
Ihlder said.
"Up to the fall of 1921 or the beginning
of 1922 housing conditions
were growing worse." he declared.
'"Now however, (he tide has turned
and though we can not expect house
building to continue long at its
present speed, we may hope that it
will continue to exceed current increase
of need and so gradually reduce
the shortage. Coincidental!)
we may expect that building prices
will come down, not steadily, but
with occasional flats and ascents.
This means that we may hope for
dwellings produced and sold at
smaller cost and so put within the
means of a constantly larger proportion
of the people until the day
comes when the old procession is
once more started from poorer
houses to- better houses, making
available to families of small means
the old adequate houses that are
still habitable."
Mr. Ihlder warned against "shoddy
construction" as a short-cut to
adequate housing, urging retention
of "good minimum standards in
house building, adequate size and
number of rooms, open spaces and
honest construction.*'
The extension of zoning regulation
in the United States, he said,
was "the one important exception
to the backward process which
ceased and became progress only a
few months ago." Today some 60
cities have or are drafting zoning
regulations.
HORSESHOE FINALS
PLANNED TOMORROW;
The finals in the Horseshoe |

The members on the winning

medal, while a similar medal of
bronze will be given to each man
on the second team.
At the present time there are
twenty-four teams in the 'league. ?
They are divided into three!
each group. In group A. the labor
team of the Owens Bottle Co. has
already won the honors from the
group, halving completed their
schedule and losing only one
game.
There arfe two teams in group B
that are pretty well matched.
They are Second Ward and Consolidation

IN WILBURN CASE
Jury Instructed This Morning
by Judge Woods?Chafin
First to SpeakCHARI.ES
TOWN, June 23.?
(By The Associated Press.)?The
jury trying the case of the Rev.
J. E. WSlburn on trial for the killing
of a Logan deputy sheriff
during the labor disorders in the
Southern West Virginia coal fields
last summer, was instructed byJudge
J. M. Woods that it could
return either a first degree or a
second degree murder verdict or
one for manslaughter.
Afte consideration of questions
from both sides, the court held that
it would leave it to the jury to
decide from the evidence which of
the three verdicts to bring in. The
prosecution then started argument
of the case. The court limitec
each side to three and one hal
hours each for argument.
Punishment for first degree rrmrrdr
is death; second degree murder,
five to eighteen years in the penitentiary
and for voluntary manslaughter.
from one to five years
in prison. Sentences for involuntary
manslaghter in West Virginia
-~ ^^ vuar in tho. Deniten
tiarv. a fine or both.
Attorney Chafin. in beginning his
argument, quoted the commandment,
"Thou shalt not kill," and
compared the Rev. J. E. Wilburn to
Judas Iscariot. "One does not lose
one's reputation," Chafin declared,
"until one "goes wrong. Nor did
Judas Iscariot lose his reputation
until he went wrong," the Logan
prosecutor asserted. In this connection
he pointed out to the jury
that the defendant may have had a
good reputation prior to the kill
ing of Deputy Sheriff John Gore,
but that he deliberately betrayed
his calling as a minister when he
took up a rifle and went into the
hills to "kill."
Speaking of the attempt of the
defense to prove that the Logan
deputy sheriffs were noted for
their violence, Chafin asserted that
there was no body or organization
more noted for its lawlessness and
violence than the mine workers
whose marching to Logan to kill
the sheriff and his deputies, and
"then on to Mingo to raise martial
law.!'
Following Chafin. Mason for the
defense sought to show that Wilburn
was justified in going to the
hills on the day of the Gore shooting
in that he feared the town of
Blair would be attacked by Logan
deputies.
T. C. Townsend of counsel for
the defense began his plea to the
jury when court reassembled at 2
o'clock . He discussed the instruc
tions of the court to the jury.
"Get rid of the radicals on both
sides, and we will have better conditions
in West Virginia between
coal operators ana union miners,
lie declared.
