Whereas, there have been many li belous and slanderous reports gone out from our town through the press and otherwise; and, whereas one Tobe Cox, a member of Local Union No. 287, has been charged through the press with having offered a motion, "That every union man kil a 'scab",', and whereas it is charged 80 per cent, of our mem bers voted for same motion. Be it re solved that we deem it .necessary that we go to press with our grievance, and denounce as malicious and false these libelous and slanderous reports, that evidently are originated by designing and unscrupulous parties or men. Be it resolved that we publish to the world our denial of Mr. Cox having put any such motion for passage, or any of our members entertaining such formnlative action in our body. Be it further resolved that Local Un ion No. 287 has never entertained any other purpose or sentiment than a strict, moral and lawful parliamentary proceedure. , , Be it resolved that our meetings are held open to the public and every body is invited to attend, and our meetings are largely attended by those who are not members. Our proceedings are an open book to the public and we court and demand a strict obst-rvar.ee by all to our honora ble course. Be it resolved by this organization that it is self-evident to any fair-mind ed men that the purpose of these sland erous reports wero originated and are being continually spread abroad over our country for no other purpose than to poison the minds of onr fellow citi zens against the U. M. W. of A. to the end that the principles of the canso of the workingman may become extinct, and that sordid wrath and ill-gotten capital mav liecome absolute. Be it further resolved that the true principles of onr organization and craft is a strict maintainance of law and or der, that the peace and dignity of the state may le conserved. Be it further resolved that our past conduct and records stand subject to examination and we would extend to all who Vve tue cause of justice and humanity a hearty co-operation in onr struggle for the upbuilding of the cause of labor in this, our glorious Southland.

"I know not what I tell it as 'twas WHITWELL, Special to the News. ' We are having dark, cloudy weather with prospects for rain. Ben Aukms, twelve months ago hud a smile on his race as long as a cross cut saw. mm the smile is gone off of his race, ne sits up of a night and sings "baby bve." It's a little girl. Well, our lit tle .town is quiet at this time. We can't tell how long it will remain that way. It is very strange to me wny this company won't give the union men a contract so we can all live hap py together as wa once did. They ac knowledge that the union men are good workers, honest trutnrui, connueuum men. up to June an, iw, tue umuu men and company went hand in hand in harmony and it seemed that both sides were V)ry well .pleased. On or a few days before June ssitn tuey order ed the union men to clean up their loose coal and timber their places of work, as their contract with the com pany expired the last of June every year. So, in place of giving the union men a new contract on July 1, as they always had before and as the men were expecting, they shut the mines aown. They did not say how long or for what cause thev did it for about two months. Later we'heard they had declared war gainst the union. xne mines swou idle until the Uth of November when thjjy told the union men if they wished they could return to worn oui nmsi first sign a paper at' the company office that they had severed the connection with the union and union principles. The U. M. W. of A. has a .lawful charter, granted by the United States government, which makes it a lawful institution, and the union men or uu per cent, of the union mon, said they would not sign away their rights and privileges to this company or any oth er. Most of those union men own their homes here and have built up this town and don't propose to-be driven off from their homos. I wonder what Mr. Bacon would say if those men would tell him that he would have to sever his connection with the Masonic order. He would have them arrested for intimidation, and locked up in jail from their families. Some people may say this is not a little girl's business but I say what is to pa's interest is to my interest. If pa is doing well we are all doing well, and I want pa to have his rights, and 1 am not asnameo. to ask for or contend for his rights. I also want to see this company have their rights. Come on, Watchman, I likfe your idea. I think if all disinter ested people would view the situation as you do their might soon oe a set tlement here. When the union men were working here the farmers had a sale for all the vegetables they had to dispose of. The union men consumed them. As soon as the company turn ed against us the farmers, like the merchants, lawyers and doctors, all turned against us, and if they had it in their power, they would drive us out of the country and' make the men who own their homes give them away. They claim to be Christian people, too. With best wishes to the JNews, i win close. PEARLIA SMEDLEY. Stewart Bro8.fi co.

This is my first attempt at writing for the News. The health of this place is ver y good. Good health, good .people, good Christians can't be beat. There are some communities where the spir itual condition of the people seems to be drifting at a very low ebb, which could be wonderfully '.improved by an awakening to proper lines of duty. When I read about so much contention and shooting at Whitwell I do think it is a shame and a scandal to the com munity. Dear friends, just stop one moment and think what you are doing. Christ says unless you forgive your en emies ie will not forgive you. 1 have friends at Whitwell, some are union and some are non-union and it makes me feel sad to think of so much dissen tion among the people. Of course ' I don't know who is in the wrong, but I do think if they would just think a bout the shortness of life, they surely would think about something else be sides fussing and quarreling. Let us all follow peace with God and man. I see our friend, Charlie Guarles, out as a candidate for Register. I hope he will be elected. He is an hon est, upright man and a good Christian and still better he don't handle whis key in any form whatever. We have lived by him two or three years and can vouch for his soberness and his Christianity. He is strict in his deal ings with everybody. I never knew of anything against him. He was rais ed by good christian parents, and I think if our offices were tilled with just such men as C. A. Qnarles we would have better times. No danger T. , T Jill .irj!8-' 2 awful stuff.

News is not much in this part of the vineyard believe that winter has come at last and found us union people with plenty of fuel to make fires and plenty to eat, and we don't have to do anything but make fires and cook and eat and have a good time and that is hard to beat, don't you think so? We have plenty to eat and don't have to work only our jaws and we have plenty to worK them on, don t you forget. Mr. Harris has moved union store and I don't think they will have room for their goods there. They must have a tun stocK as they have got the Walk er store house full and are not through moving yet, and it don t look like the union is dead to me the way that store is building up. Let me tell 7011 one thing, the union is not dead and I do n't think it ever will be. I like to read the letters from Illinois ! and all parts of the country. Wake up all of you and write more interesting pieces. I know that there are enough who take the paper to fill it up with good writing. There are a good many of the WTiit well boys at Altoona enjoying some of that good union work and getting pay every two weeks, and that is some thing that the non-union men are not getting here. AH' the non-union men get here is a hole of water or a mud hole to work in. They don't know what a good thing the union is unless they would come to it and stay with it a while. The union means less work and more pay and that is something all men should work for, and it means better times for the coming genera tion. I believe in my children having as good time as well as anybody, and I believe in fighting for them now while I can. We have seen a hard time but nothing to what they will see if we don't keep the union going on. I haven't got much sense myself but I think I have more than some of those men at Whitwell or they would shut those mines down and let the T. C. I. Co. work union or just let them stay shut down for good. I guess the mines are ruined anyway with the men who are working here. - Will close wishing the editor good luck and the Old Reliable great suc cess. Truth Teller. WANTED. By J. A.

LETTERS TO EDITOR NJUSTICE DONE THE UNION. Editor News: I see very near all tho correspondents throughout the countv are writing on nearly the same sub ject. There must lie something dead up tho creek. Sorry mv law-abiding friend, Nip Ac Tuck's Pap, has tendered his resignation as a member of the peace committee. We had a terrible ar gument the other day when he was up. lie declares whatever the soldiers did while .t Whitwell, was law, right or wrong. I tried to cite him a lew miss-steps I held were in violation of the constitution. First, they over stopped their bounds. I may bo wrong but it was when some prejudiced agent of the T. C. I. Co., to gratify his am bition, had Col Bass to march the sold iers to the. Red Mens Hall and pointed out just who he wanted placed under arrest, and they were twenty in num ber and there were no distinctions. Thoy were searched and all they had on their persona were their pocket knives, and they took them, and some of the boys say they haven't got back their knives yet. Col. Bass entered the hall and searched the entire building. They had no warrant to autherizo them to search those men or to search that hall. Ha had no right to act thus unless he was clothed with a search warrant, naming the parties and the house to bo searched and naming tho kind of property to bo searched for, and the warrant would have to name whether to be searched in the day time or at night. If I undersand the law that they were acting under, it was under the state and County authority, and this warrant must be officially signed. I say that no such a warrant was ever issued or officially signed by any orhcer authorized to issue such a process. As they returned from the hall they stoppsd at James Bailey' s and entered his house without being clothed with the authority of the law, and searched his house and took two old-fashioned guns, one was an old hog rifle. I say that such acts as those are an. abuse of the Constitution of the United States and the State of Tennessee. This was done under the orders of Col. Bass, and when Gov. Cox ordered them to go home, he turned those guns over to Mr. Bailey, who was in the upper end of town, who would not receive them from Col. Bass but ordered him to place them buck where ho had illegally taken them and Col. Bass obeyed this order and returned the guns to Bailey's house. I emphat aticly say that this searching business was illegal from the beginning to the end from Capt. Fyffe's own statement to me. He said to Dr. J. A. Walker and mo that the T. C. I. Co. had 500 or 000 fire arms and stood and pointed out the Company's house where they were and said under the State's law he had no legal right to enter and take those firearms- away from the com pany's employes unless martial law was declared and it martial law was declared he would get every one of them. Now, pray tell me where did Col. Bass get his authority to search and take those guns and enter the Red Men's Hall as he did. I say because they were union. It's evident of it self. Did he enter any non-union home for the purpose of taking fire arms and searching their persons or property? I say no. He carried on a one-sided piece of business. 1 will sustain what Capt. Fyffe said, that as martial law was not declared they had no right to search or disarm either side Which is correct? There are great questions and warm arguments as to the valitli ty of the law covering and concerning fire arms. That it is a felony to have a gun in your house that will shoot a steel ball. I say that the Winchester Fire-arm & Gun Co. have made an improvement to their Winchesters and they will shoot a steel ball. I have had the matter investigated. So, dear readers, if you hnd a gun or a pistol that the U. S. uses in their service it is lawful for you to have the same in your house. My opinion on this sub ject is that this is a tree country and any company or corporation or private individual can order guns from . any part of the U. S., from wholesale or retail houses and not violate the U. S or State law unless the Tennessee leg islature meets and enacts a new law to make it either a misdemeanor or a felony to enter the state any gun that will shoot a steel ball. My opinion on this suinect is to make it a crime to order a gun and have the same in your house, and in your possession. Such a law in Tennessee has to be yet enacted and my opinion further is if a corpora tion, company or private individual orders a package of goods or a box from any lawful house or man, whether this box contains guns or unlawful pocket pistols, that you cannot put this agent or private individual on the stand and compel him to incriminate himself. If this is law it is new to me. It might be possible that I have over looked this section. If I have I want to see the agent of the T. C. I. Co. come on the stand and criminats him self and tell the court where ho got those 500 or 000 hre arms that Capt. Fyffe -vtas speaking about, and for what purpose he ordered them? And I- say what is fair to the goose is fair to the gander. The investigation of the Rolerson case is enough to satisfy all fair-minded people that the inves tigation is one-Mded. The attorney, the officers, the court and all tho jury were non-union men. How does this look to the world. CITIZEN. "JOLLY" REPLIES TO UNION. Editor News: As they give "Jolly" so many hard blows I guess he will answer. They think "Jolly" is one and he is another and so they have got the wrong sow by the ear this time. Aunt Lettie has boasted that nothing had hapiened like what would happen as soon as the soldiers left. Now they are gone and nothing hai happened yet. The union jieople throw off on us people who are ut work, but if we say anything about them they got mad. In your paper of Nov. 5Mrd White Sheep said she wouldn't 1)0 in our shoes for our sot-Its. Now that is one threat against ns at work, and again she said the T. C L & Co. would see that the union men are the men to work if they want to get along without any trouble.

Now they had better think of this as they have homes, too. If they were to be shot into they would say that isn't right. I say so too. .Now, the union men can us scabs and black legs. 1 want some good union man to tell mo what it takes to make either. We get more for our coal than the union got. I have worked in several union camps and never belonged to it yet. I know what a scab is and I want some of the bush whackers' s ideas on the same. Any man or set of men can't expect to do anything like getting a settlement with a company and act like they hav. Some one saitl this place was filled up with the scum of the cities. That is false. Show me one that hasn't got as much right to work as the union. men. The most of the miners wero,' raised here in Tenneasee, Of course they didn't come from England or they would be all right. Did any of you good union men ever see a union camp that had all ' American officers. - No, you didn't and they always have busi ness to tend to to draw good pay, and miners are sure to pay it. Now, the union people will say, "We eat John- Mitchell's grub." That is false. The other mining camps have extra assess ments to pay to keep you in something to eat. You are all ust as far from eating John Mitchell's grub as I am. Jolly. TRACY CITY. Special to the News. Well, this is the first time I, have ever written a piece to your grand and noble paper. I am a union man, was converted in '08 and joined the U. M. W. of A. , and I can say that the boys are as solid as they ever were, looking ' to fly home any time with angel' b wings, waiting for an honest settle ment. Come on, union woman, we love to read your pieces. We have lots of good union women at Tracy. The scabs here are going just like the fel low's mules did. Once there was a man shipping a car load of mules and he had tags on the mules, stating where they were to go to and he had a non-union man in the car with the mules, and when the train checked at a station the mules had eaten the tags up, and he hollered out, "Captain, what are we going to do? These mules have eaten up where they are going to." That is the way the 'scabs are here. Ask Frank Lockhart how he likes Altamont. Dykes' Hellow has a good Sunday school. Rev. Carl Nun ley is the chaplain. L. Dykes has plenty of game chickens. Dykes' Hol low is quiet and peaceable and is said to be the best place in the union. The old Baptist preaches here once a year. If you can hnd out when that is, come and hear them. John Hatfield killed hogs last week. He is said to have about 3,000 pounds of pork. He is a union man. Milt Lockhart has moved to his farm, know as the Shrum farm.
