Births and Deaths Being Well
Reported from Many
Parts of State.
Richmond, Va., Sept. 7.?
That the people of Virginia ure
anxious to secure the legal pro?
tection given by a proper record
of births and deaths became
obvious today when the first
roturns under the new vital
staticticB law were labuluted at
the Stale Health Department.
Following a lengthy cam?
paign of publicity, tho new law
for the registration of all births
and deaths in the State became
effective on Juno 14, at which
time the registrars appointed
under the statute began the dis?
charge o f their duties. The
first reports filed by them were
received on July 10 anil covered
the latter half of June. These
reports have now been roughly
tabulated and the results are
declared most encourgiug.
"In many parts of the State"
said Health Commissioner Wil
Hams yestorday, "tho law is hi -
ing so well enforced that prac?
tically all the births and deaths
are being reported. In other
counties, our off or Is have not
yet brought satisfactory results,
but taking the State as a whole,
the showing for the first weeks
is most encouraging. On the
basis of tho showing already
made, we feid confident that
within the next few months the
great majority of all deaths and
births will he registered, and
we believe public sentiment
will soon be strong enough to
guarantee a certificate and a
burial permit as a regular part
of interments. "Much credit
for this good showing is due
local registrars who, under the
provisions of the law, are justi?
ces of the peace in the counties
ami the local health officers in
the cities. Many of the rural
justices have shown a keen in?
terest in the work and are for?
warding their certificates in ex?
cellent shape. As they receive
smalt pay for this work, they
deserve the heartiest thanks of
tho people.
"An interesting aspect of the
now law is tho readiness with
which the Virginia people have
reported births. In other States
it has generally been easier to
get a record of deaths than of
births and sometimes it has
been necessary to postpone the
reports of births until the sys?
tem for t h e registration of
deaths was in working order.
In Virginia, we have had little
trouble on this account. Our
people fully realize the impor
tanco of registering all births
to avoid legal difficulties and,
at this time, a r o report ing
births more generally than
they report deaths."
"As soon as the July figures
are tubulated, we hope to pub?
lish tin exact statement of the
number of births and deaths
Eleven Foot Coal In Wise.
While a great deal has been
said in the press of the country
about the wonderful develop?
ment of coal in the mountains
of eastern Kentucky, it must
not be overlooked that some
thing has been doing along near
Kentucky state lino and the
Virginia side. The Purdue peo?
ple are the largest developers
on this side of the Pluck Moun?
tains. During the past eight
teen months this company
known as the Rlaekwood Oottl
Co., has opened up the thickest
Ream of coal perhaps ever open?
ed in this entire belt. The vein
measures eleven feet clean coal.
Through this vein the company
is tunnelling Black Mountain
and when through will bring
coal and lumber back from their
large tracts of coal and timber
lands over on the Kentucky
side. They h a v e built the
Roaring Pork brunch line from
Black wood to Pardeo, about
twelve or fourteen miles t o
Black Mountain. Above the
eleven foot seam some two hun?
dred feet they have opened a
five foot vein of splint coal to
be used for domestic purposes.
The company is also mining
coal at Roaring Fork to bo
burned into coke at Black woodi
whore they have 282 ovens.
They have a new bund mill
near the Pluck Mountain which
has a capacity of ?lo.Ooo feet per
day.? Cooburn Journal.
