MININB BEES
The cold weather of the past few days
caused the coal business to become more
active
The New mines sent a man South last
week to look after their Interests in that
section of the country
Some of the miners at Mortons Gap have
been sufferers from lagrippe and also a
case or two of scarlet fever
Hecla furnished from among Its miners
another representative for Ihe Madisonville
rock pile last week Too much liquor
again
The glass and tack eater caught quite a
number of the boys last Saturday night
and some of them no doubt really believe
he eats his harJ diet
Last Saturday while Mr Press Smith
one of the Hecla men was moving a car
his hand was caught and badly mashed but
it Is thought by the attending physician that
the wounded member can be saved and
amputation of it avoided if great care In
the treatment Is exercised
Judge Stokes was busy last week making
some additional Improvements at the Free
Library This new institution is proving
quite an attraction for our people who love
to read a good book or paper and bow
could they betterimprove their time than
reading first class literature
Rather a novel way to raise money for

In addition to the successiui operation 01
their mines the St Bernard Company wilt
soon have in operation a first class saw
mill
There are few towns in the State where
so many miners own the property they oc
cupy as in Earlington Yet many more
could be blessed with more of this worlds
goods if they would mako fewer trips to
those towns where saloons are in full blast
and wherein they spend their hard earned
dollars Quite often you also see this class
with from one to two jugs of whiskey in
their possession homeward bound scarcely
able to walk and when an investigation is
made these are the men who always com
plain of hard times and who are generally
behind in their store and other accounts
While the appropriation for the Worlds
Fair display for this State is no doubt in
adequate for the purpose yet there is little
doubt of this end of the State being fairly
represented Already have the St Ber
nard Coal Company taken steps toward
preparing their coal and coke exhibit A
fine specimen lump of coal was taken out
ot the mine last week for that purpose
This lump we understand is five feet in
thickness and an excellent quality Now
if other companies will only do likewise the
coal interests of the State will be well rep
resented and why should it not be wben
It is the leading industry outside of farm
ing
For the failure to comply with rules gov
erning mines under which all mines in the
State are supposed to work a mine in Hen
derson county has been shut down the
grand jury having lately found an
ment we are informed against the firm for
non compliance with the rules above men
tioned It is said this firm were rather
stubborn and refused to listen to the
good advice given them by Ihe Slate Mine
Inspector therefore the subject of improp
er ventilation was taken to court for final
adjustment There are few mines In the
State but what willingly comply with this
law which is made for the sole purpose of
protecting men and property
The foreign demand for gold is likely to
be further increased by the establishment
of gold currency for India If the present
agitation in favor of such a step should
succeed we may soon see an outflow of
gold from this country to provide for the
new Indian currency There is no doubt
that the demand for gold by foreign coun
tries is on the increase The supply alto
is increasing Very rich deposits have
been discovered in Nova Scotia News
comes also from Phoenix Arizona that the
greatest gold fever ever known is on in Ari
zona New placer mines have been dis
covered In the San Juan river and are
said to be unprecedently rich Yet it Is
safe to say that these new discoveries of
gold in various parts of the country will
not begin to keep pace with the demand
for gold from foreign countries That the
world is constantly outgrowing its produc
tion ot gold is evident Unless some
rational scheme for bi metalism can be
agreed upon financial stringency Is sure to
result What is needed is an agreement to
not buy up silver This would be like try
ing to bale out the ocean with a spoon
The true remedy lies in the establishment
of an international ratio for the coinage of
silver and gold so that silver coined In one
shall circulate at par In every country

new postmaster appointed at Sebree
The Sebree correspondent to the Hen
derson Gleaner bas -got his back up be
cause the correspondent to the Bek bas
on two or three occasions criticized Post
master Echols He says among other
things that when a Republican office holder
does his duty the leaders of the Republican
party try to blast bis reputation The cor
respondent to the Bee bas never said any
thing about Mr Echols character On
one occasion we challenged bis Republi
canism and called bim a Mugwump This
we had a right to do because he came
among us claiming to be a Republican
from Republicanville and had persecuted
Democrats even unto btrange cities and
bad smote them bip and thigb from Dan
to Bersheba and finally succeeded by the
assistance of your correspondent and other
Republicans in securing the appointment
but since then he bas done absolutely noth
ing for the party either directly or Indi
rectly nor bas he ever attended a Republi
can convention or any gathering or organ
ization or aided directly or indirectly Of
course this was what the Democratic party
wanted and as your correspondent could
not tell whether he was for Weaver Cleve
land Harrison or Bidwell I called bim a
Muewumn And on another occasion I
said that be wasnt qualified for doorkeeper
at a Wheeler convention Of courso be is
not for ho doesnt belong to that noble
ordsr and doesnt know anything about
their oaths threats grips and counter
signs Tho correspondent to the Gleaner
Ky Monday March 13 at Hassct Ms a jolly good fellow but be cannot prove
and it becomes us to put aside party malice I Hibbs Stable or allege that I have said anything false
