Kel- ley & Co., ana will De glad to have you come and see me. I will soon have my stock complete again. Respectfully, H. ALEXANDER PETROS, TENN, Special to the Kent. Well, as I have walked out ol mi sleep and got hold of a copy of the News again, and look over its columns and find correspondents writing from differ ent parts of the dear old rook-ribbed bills of Tennessee, I will try to stay awake long enough, to give a few dot from Petros. If the old lady will just keep on singing and the little brats will keep on crying, and my son, Dick will to the spring and get me a good, eool drink 1 think l ean write just a few. lines. . ' I remember seeing a niece in my . ca per of last week which was wrtun by Union Miner" of Petros. which lust fits my case. He said to rest six dave and work on the seventh. I am glad of that faet because I was alwaya snder the. impression that we were to work a days and rest on the 7th. ' 1 noticed an artiole from Whitwell giving the Union Miner who wrote from Illinois quite a send-off. H'.waatll tbe readers of the News to pray for, him. I wish to say if there was more praying and less coal being dug by . non-union labor times would be better, lie also pities him. I pity the non-union -min ers who are working in any mine trying to make a living for their families. They are to.be pitied, for they haven't any protection whatever, for when the superintendent or mining foreman says go they must go and when besayacome, tney must come, and if they find fault with the non-union about anything be has it to bear, whether he is in fault or not.' I believe in eaual" rights to all and speoial privileges to none I don't believe the non-union men who are writing understand . tbe principles of union labor. It is stated that , non union men,' who -are digging -coal at Whitwell. are getting more for digging coal than the union men get. , I don t doubt that bulng true, but let me juat ask tbe cause of that. It is just to try to down union labor. Perhaps if tbey work in tbe mines as long as I, have tney win be convinced that union labor. istne nest."- : ' ".r i" ,n,vt Now then, some one may ask she. question bow long I have been working in &e mines., I was. wonting,, in: n mines when wevworked under the ruling Of tbe Knights of labur and I was dig gtng ooal wben we had jio organisation whatever. Then was the time tbat coal was being dug at Whitwell .for 85o anaaycper ton. I, wish, to say em- nbatlcallv that all the eoal' tbat' Mas been dug at VVhltwelJ for, So and 39o was aug by unorganized men. l wisn to sir tbat the vrioe naid tor nigging coal before the United, Mine Workers of America was organized at w nit wen was 35o and 39Vio and ST We and VJo. Since the union was organised at Whit welt the T. O., I. & R, Ri Co, has paid 47Ko to Sic for digging coaL r ... ,; . . Who brought up wages for 'tbe poor hardworking miners la tbe lWth district) ft is to make tnis statement, f t . were not for tbe union miners in our land that coal which is being dug for 69c and 55o per ton would be dug for tbe old big plump 35o a toaa ' ' ! " Tbis brings to my memory one lime mining camp in Tennessee,' which at one time in the history of thai country and tbat not long ago, waswork )ng non union men ana tney pain tne price oi 23 cents per ton for digging coaL, in laU years those same men saw the need of organizing. Now the' same place is working union men and. they receive this year fron 47 to 60 cents per ton lor the same coal.. Now,, then, who- has fought the fight and won the victory fos the poor miner. It is the union mea. Now; then,, which. Is the best tot a. min er, to have a contract- to wort nasi wbioh assures yon of a reasonable wage for your labor or. to work for ; just -what ever the opperators see fit to pay and to have to, put. up with just .whatever conditions they see fit to have.) i . i ; -, Well, I say that tbe union is best for the miner and true union labor is best tft the company. .-.. t ?
