Benwood people are much excited over recent events happening in Mar shall county. With a murder com mitted and the murderer at large and the County Court gone wrong, the peo ple have plenty to talk about. The people of Benwood and throughout the county read the full report of the in dignation meeting held in Moundsville, as published exclusively in yesterday’s Register, with a great deal of interest and warmly commend the determina tion of the citizens of Marshall county to bring the matter before the Circuit Court. A Benwood man by the name of Smith was arrested at Glendale early yesterday morning by the Moundsville officers on suspicion of being the party who committed the Moundsville mur der. He was shortly afterwards re leased, however. Two well known Benwood young men are making preparations to leave next week for the gold fields of Alaska. John James, of the Wheeling steel works, and Frank Rude, of the River side, expect to leave Monday to hunt gold within the Arctic circle. They will leave directly for Seattle, Wash., and sail from there. They will go pre pared with a sufficient stock of food and clothing to last eighteen months. Jacob Debold, Charles Kearns and Edward Higgins spent yesterday with an East Wheeling fishing party en camped at the “Narrows.” Mrs. Landers, a respected lady, is critically 111 and may not recover. The funeral of an Italian by the name of Dominickt took place from St. John’s Catholic church yesterday, and was largely attended. The remains were interred at ML Calvary cemetery. Workmen have commenced the job of pulling down a track in the large lot south of the Riverside plant, and will commence soon to excavate for the unknown factory to be built on the site. A new curb and sidewalk has been put down on Seventh street on the north side of the Deegan company’s store. Yesterday electric light men stretch ed a guy wire fTerfr'one of the new poles across Main street, and fastened it to a large tree in the yard of Thos. Gately against the latter’s protest. Mr. Gately got a ladder and made ready to cut down the wire if not removed. -o NEXT EXCURSION TO ATLANTIC CITY VT5 B. & 0., THURSDAY, JULY" 22. Also to Cape May. Sea Isle City and Ocean City.

OJBURKB, Passenger ^/Ticket Agent BOGG’S MINERS, Committees f. om All Mines 4: This Neighborhood Will Wait on the Bogg’s Ran Men To-Day—If They Do Not Strike the Demonstration Will Take Place. To-day combined effort will be made to persuade th Boggs' run miners to lay down their picks and shovels rnd join the general strike, as announced exclusively in yesterday’s Rgistec. The procession of miners has been postpon ed until another plan is tried, this for fear of giving some offense to the Boggs’ run men. Instead of the miners a'l marching in a nody. committees from each of the unions mentioned yes terday, will go and wait to have a con ference with the miners when they come out of the bank after they have finished their day’s w'ork. The plan of action was changed at a meeting of the various mine workers yesterday, and this was deemed the most feasible. If the Boggs’- run miners will not listen j to the committees then the first plan will be taken up and carried out. A demonstration will be made that will be expected to shame the working min ers out. The Glendale miners are still working, as stated yesterday, but are not filing any orders except for the B. & O. engines. ■o THE MINERS STRIKE. To the Editor of the Register. Sir:—This general suspension or. strike of the coal miners of the coun try is beginning to be seriously felt in many places and demonstrates the im portance of the coal miner in the com mercial world. Even the miner him self ha9 never realized it until now. Had there been a complete shut-down of all the mines in the country at once in the beginning of this strike a set tlement would have been had ere this, or else all the industries and railroad engines of the country would be at a standstill. Cities would be without light or water, in fact, anything oper ated by steam or gas (except in lo calities where there is natural gas) would be completely paralyzed. The United States mail would be very ma terially affected, and for that reason if nothing more the President and Congress of the United States should see that this difficulty is adjusted and the miners put to work immediately. This strike has taught the miners a good lesson, and that is they are of much more importance in the world than they thought they were. We are sorry to be compelled to cause so much inconvenience, but it appears there was no other remedy. We hope our friends will bear with it a short time in order that we may be enabled to gain our rights, which is freedom and some thing akin to a decent living. I do not mean to say all operators wonM take advantage of hi9 miners or use thf*m as tools to beat his competitor in the market, but I am satisfied that a large majority would like to treat their min ers fairly and see them draw good sal aries, but are prevented from treating them as they would wish by the cut throat competition of the minority, and if by this strike a remedy be found for exisiting evils, the miners shall have accomplished a God send not only for themselves but the operators as well. l ne buck memons oi muse umeo sonable, obstinate operators to cover up their dirt and keep their miners at work is brassy and inconsistent in the extreme. They say the miners of West Virginia have no cause to strike, but profit by continuing to work in that they are securing new markets for the product of their labor, and all that kind of stuff, when in fact a large por tion of them are only filling the con tracts of other operators, as per agree ment in order to defeat the miners, and it is an evident fact that all those min ers who continue to work are driving nails in their own coffin. Newspaper correspondents and reporters no doubt are given the tip by the filthy lucre sent to doctor the case for the opera tors In a snide way. Money can buy almost anything but good sense. We trust our fellow craftesmen will weigh existing circumstances carefully and watch the conduct of operators, stock holders and hired methods of coal companies and learn for themselves in whose interest they are working. We could go into the details and ex plain more fully why all miners should cease work for a time, but think enough has been said to satisfy all thinging people the necessity for it. W. S.
