I think he played the part of a man and I feel that his trip and the things he saw here will result in material improvement of conditions generally."

We had a pleasant but busy stay in the southern coal fields,” said Mr. Low. “We visited mines at Primero. Frederick, the one at Hastings, the Walsen-Robinson and the Ravenwood and Cameron mines. The conditions as to houses and general living condi tions seemed to be most satisfactory, comparing very favorably with the Pennsylvania and other mines in the East that have come under my obser vation. “We found one company was build ing garages and that many of the automobiles to be housed therein are owned by the miners. “We had conferences with the mine operators and with the miners, and will continue our tour with a visit to the northern coal fields.” Burglar Shot in Gun Battle.
