The furnaces here have been mak ing a big run of iron lately. , the high est run reported being 230 tons Thurs day from a furnace which originately was intended to have an output of 150 tons, but which has been remodeled. Claim is made, however, that this is pushing the capacity'of the furnace to dangerous limit, as furnaces some times explode where pushed beyond av erage capacity. , . , ' Nothing to Fear.

Would Lose $68,640 a Year. Whitwell Tenn., Oct. 3, 1905. Mr. Editor: When Whitwell mines were being operated here under a joint contract lelween the workmen and 1 the T. C I. Co., the normal output of coal was about 1100 tons. The price, paid per ton was, at the end of the contract year, over 50c per ton for dig- ging coal. Before the United Mine Workers came to Whitwell in organiz ed form the price per ton 'was as low as 8ro per ton for digging coal and day wages were correspondingly low. Now, ' the T. C. I. Co. proposes to de stroy the condition of things as as set up by the organization. This evident purpose is manifest by the contempt, exhibited by the company against the . United Mine Workers. Hence it is clear to any fair-minded man that the company proposes to return to former conditions at Whitwell. The differ-1 ence between 35c per ton and 55c per ton is 20c. With an output of 1100 tons of coal per day the difference in wa ges under the organization and with-1 out the organization is 20c. Then elev en hundred times 20o would be $230.00 a day more to the coal digger under the organization than he would get should the company succeed in return-. ning to former conditions. Then should the prices secured by the organization pay the diggers $220 a day more than prior to the organi zation, for one month it would be $5.? 720, and for one year it would be $08,-; 640 to the credit of the organization over former condiions. This applies on ly to the coal digger, and don't take into consideration the increased wages of the day workmen. ' I take the position that good wages is the life of any country. When this balance of $866.40 is taken into consid eration it is but fair to suppose that all reasonable men would favor the or ganization. When this money is paid out the people of this community , get it ,w hether they are union or non-union, the benefits of this money affect the welfare of everybody. It means more clothes for our children, it means more to eat, it means better school fa cilities, it means the easier payment of taxes and it means prosperity. ' If I should take the position that these wages should be taken from our people and tranf ered to Wall-street stock-holders, I am free to say that I would at once be branded by fair minded men as a thief and a robber. I claim that the difference above re fered to is worth fightjng for and the success of this cause will affect every body ailke. . Yours truly, N. B. MOORE. New Cure for Cancer.

Mr. Editor: I will try and write a few lines to our valuable paper this week. I was pleased to rea( so. many good letters from corresiwndents last week and truly glad, to nee that so many more people wanted the good pa ppr. Let's hear from Petros every week. I am acquainted with the good people of Petros. They are union to the core. Would like to hear fromjkl Johnson and would be glad if he would take this paper as it would interest him as he is such a good union, man. We ex pect several more subscribers from Pe tros. I saw in the Caroline Chapel news where Old Joe said if all people had , true religion we would have an organ- ization that we could call union. That will never be for there are so many j men who just want a smile from the boss and think that ia worth more to mm than bread in to his family, Such men as that will worship man I ??d? O0(L Jf aI1 mer !uVl AUBt i r ii. 1 .ii r i would all be union men. All we ask . as union men is freedom. We want a voice in a contract, and then we will stand to that contract if it takes the hide, but the company don't want that. They want to make the contract, and then say, come fools, and sign or bring out your tools. That is the way it was until the union came and I am glad that it has come to stay. I, have worked here for about fourteen years. I have worked when men had contracts on entry stumps and they would make $100, and I and the rest of the room men, would make $15,00 and $20.00, Thank God, the union came and stop ped that and we have had equal rights to all and special privileges to none. We have worked along for several years with the union and our officers to make our settlements, but the T. C. I. Co., began to think like the Egyptians, they are growing strong. We must do something or they will be able to edu cate their children and then they will be as smart as ours, and they can com pete with ours, and so they began'their oppression. They thought, no doubt, I we were fools still, and would run np , the mountain to scab but we fooled I them. We learned a lesson in 1804 that we will remember as long as we ! live. There are some good men here '. at work that would not be here if they Ferry. Wm. McNabb went to Chatta i had just such a lesson as we had. The noga, Saturday.

We meet publicly in union meetings. Any one, is invited. We open with prayer. We ask God to guide ' us a- right for we believe ours is a just cause. We want a fair wage for our Display OF friends and customers in now located in my new almost entirely new stock come and see me. Re exander work and don't ask more. The most of us have families and we love them just as well as Mr. Bacon loves his family. We want a fair wage so we can clothe our children respectably, so we can send to Sunday school and church.

OwL .Saved His Life. J. W. Davenport, Wingo, Ky., writes, June 14, 1902: "I want to tell you I believe Ballard's Snow Lini ment saved my life. I was under the treatment of two doctors and they told me one of my lungs was entirely gone, and the other badly affected. I alxo had a lump on my sida I don't think that I could have lived over two months longer. I was induced by a friend to try Ballard's Snow Liniment The first application gave me great re lief: two tifty-cent bottles cured me sound and well. It is a wonderful medicine and I recommend it to suffer ing humanity. Sold by Sequatchie Supply Store. Confirmation Service. TRACY CITY, Sept 30. Bishop Byrne, of Nanhville, confirmed class of twelve, at the Catholic Church here to-day, with impressive service. It is the secrrnd time confirmation service in that church has ever been held here. PETROS. Special to the Newt. The morning of the 18th inst dawn ed' bright and ,clear and the gentle breezes from the towering peaks of Old Brushy mountain faned love and patriotism into our hearts. Ye scribe, in company with Mr.M. D. Moss and wife and Frank Smith boarded the Lightning Express over the great Har riman and & Northeastern for Chattan ooga it being the time of the Reunion of the Society of the Army of the Cumberland. Arriving at DeArmond in due time, a town at the crossing of the H. & N. E. & Southern R. R. This town is composed of one building comprising both freight and passenger , depot and had a flavor very much like that of a den of skunks. Boarding the train at that pint, we arrived at Oak dale at high noon, being weary with layovers and slow trains, we climbed up the side of the - mountain to the boarding house, kept by some good woman, and did ample justice to a good dinner. Oakdale is a long town, the valley being just wide enough for the railroad on the north side of Emory River. At this point the quarantine officers boarded the train for Chatta- - nooga and they Informed us that we would have to have a health certificate before we could stop in the capital city of the good county of Hamilton. Through our own efforts and those of Rev; Duncan and the conductor on the Southern road, we procured the neces sary documents and took the 4:30 train for Chattanooga, arriving there with out mishap at 8:15 p. m. On our arri val we found the yellow fwver scare . had about scared off the Reunion. There were only 600 or 800 oldBoldiers present, but enough to transact the buisness of the Society. The election of officers resulted in the election of Gen. Thurston, of Nashville, as presi dent. On the evening of the 20th at 4 o'clock General Thurston, president elect, reviewed the 12th Cavalry, now stationed at Chicamauga army post. This review was witnessed by the old veterans of the civil war just 43 years from the time the confederates were driven off the battle field. During the review the old veterans in blue remarked that the review brought to their minds the Stirring times and the scenes that took place on the same field in September, of 1863, although their heads are silvered over arid their shoulders bent with the weight of years. The fires of patriot ism burns brightly in their bosoms as in , the trying days from 61 to 65. , May the shadows of those men never grow dim nor their patriotism grow less, and when the last bugle call is sounded may they receive their final discharge and be reenlisted in the army whose commander conquered death, hell and the grave, and bo able to say "Shibboleth" at the crossing of the dark river of death, and in the lan guage of the gallant Stonewall Jack son, be permitteu to rest umier tne shade of the trees on the green fields in the paradise of God, and there en joy the rewards of good and faithful , soldiers. A few more years will bring those reunions or the Diue anu ana gray to an end as they are passing rapidly away. We are now all in the sere and yellow leaf season of life and like an autumn leaf soon fall to Mother Earth. Yes, Comrades, we will soon cross the great divide so let us govern our selves so when the lHBt bugle has been sounded and we have answered the last roll call, that we may have the countersign that will admit us into the Grand Encampment of the Army of the Heaven.
