They are making so many useful substances from the smoke and gases which formerly were allowed to escape from coko ovens, that companies which are so far behind as to use the old-fash ioned bee hive ovens will have to quit fighting unions and use the money thus save in building ovens of a more up- to-date pattern to be in the commer cial swim. The bee hive oven has outlived its usefulness, and the by products of coal, which formerly were allowed to escape in the air, are now taking important places n the commer- cial arena. Southern coke burners will have to abandon their antediluvian methods in a few years to avoid con stantly increasing loss. Their business depends not so much on their ability to down organized labor as ability to grasp existing conditions and make money out of them. We have very poor opinion of a con cern which pays its employes only $5 a week, but we have such a one in this county. The News has stood in need of help hundreds of times, and has been solicited for positions, but never felt it right to employ anyone except at decent price, and the editors have worked many an extra hour because they would not employ any one at price lower than they would expect themselves. The News is ' 'sorter set on the matter of pay, and thinks low wages and lots of work is the bane of a section. The corporation idea is to keep the hand of every man against his fellow man. This is the ticket they expect to win on. The Southern Railway has not reach eu bequaehee yet, though some or our sanguine citizens are still expecting it. Ana so the organ or the coal opera tors says the printers strike will not be successful. Just wait and see. Have you had the grip yet? If not. why not? Every chance has been in your favor. Criticises Action of Justice. Jasper, Tenn., Jan. li, 190(5. Editor News: There are queer people in this coun ty or rather in the uth district, or they would never have elected a cer tain man a Justice of the .Peace to re present them, for since he has been in ofhce lie seems to have gone against the interests of his district in every way. Just now we would like to know what has been gained by having the rates at Kelly s Ferry cut? keeps money from being brought into our county, which would circulate among the people and help in the gen eral public welfare. If be can bring any reason for this action, on account of the good that it does, we would like him to bring it forward. VOTER. S1U0 KK WARD 8100.

Well, Mr. Editor, I thought since I had been idle for some time I .would try and come again. I see you have received my renewal to the News all right of which I am proud. I want the readers to know that I am still in the land of the living. News is certainly scarce in this neck of the woods. I know of nothing in the way of news to write that would interest the readers. It seems raining or snowing is the order of the day. On January 1 the U. M. W. of A. Local here gave an oyster dinner, af ter which we had the pleasure of lis tening to some good speaking and sing ing. Those who spoke were Joe Vas ey, I. N. B. M. oOhe U. M. W. of A., and Gus Carter, G. M. of Glen Mary Coal and Coke Co. , and Supt. John Keone of said company, Chas. Birch and Jesse Davis. All made good talks and to the point. Bro. Vasey held his audience for about one hour and the greater part of his talk was on organized labor and organization in general. Bro. Vasey was well received in Glen Marv. Too much cannot be said in honor of him and the noble way in which he performs his duty as an official of the U. M. W. of A. 1 am sure he is the right man in the right place. We, the people of Glen Mary are ready to receive and welcome Bro, Vasey in our midst any old time and Messrs Keene and Carter expressed willingness open and above board to wards working union men in lieu of non-union labor, giving their reasons for same. Everything went off nicely, Bill Boyd and Clark Young returned from Petros this morning where they have been working for a few days, They say there is nothing in loading coal by the acre. They say they don't want any more loading coal after ma chines. Well, Mr. Editor, the reason I haven't written before now I have been wait ing and watching to see what would develop. I wanted to see how ."Watch man' ' and More Anon' ' would make it, "More Anon" used some very broad assertions in the issue of the 11th. He said the sooner the miners would learn to lead themselves and not be led by such ilks as John Mitchell and Debbs the better off they would be. If "More Anon" would send W. B. Wil son, oi Indianapolis, lnu. , a dollar tor the United Mine Workers' Journal for one year and read his interview with me he would be a better posted man on unionism in the course of 12 months than he even thinks he is now. If "More Anon" will visit the White House in Washington there he will find the photographs of John Mitchell and the chief ruler of the United States hanging on the wall side by side. De spite all that might be said about President Mitchell he is honored by the honor of the world. The editor said eighteen months of the strike had elapsed. Wonder how many more the money men think it will take before they can force men to abandon their principles. He should have said, how many more months will it take for them to see their financial ruin. Well, dear readers of the News, be fore this goes to press the Internation al Convention of U. M. W. of A. will be in full session, which will be the greatest convention on record. There will be no less than 1.100 delegates pres ent representing close on to 400,000 Un ited Workers, besides the few delegates that will be there representing the Federal Labor unions of the American Federation of Labor, which their last official report showed a paid up mem bership of 2,000,000, so you can infer from this that the laboring people of America don't lack so much of being completely organized as you might suppose. While there are several re inaining outside of the organization thejr are largely in the minoiity. would to God that every laboring man in America could see just for one mo ment the position that he was in, the few that he is standing with as against the vast nnmlier who are in the or ganization. He certainly and undoubt edly would not wait any longer than the first opportunity presented to "get into the organization. For fear that I might infringe upon a space for some one else, I guess I had better ring off for this time with a promise that, if this misses the waste basket, I will try and come again some sweet day. . ith best wishes to the News and its many readers, I remain, tar Away David.

S feet a I to the Nens. Well, Mr- Editor, this is my first at tempt to write to the best paper I ever read. Mrs. W. M. Bellis is on the sick list. We hope she will soon recover. Nina Jordan is on the sick list. Mrs. Lige Hollin died this week. I don't know what the people will do when they get to work for they have had such a long rest and played and had plenty to eat. What has become of "Jolly" If she hasn't starved to death I wish she would write again I like to read her pieces They are so fine. Ye writer went to town today and got a little ducking. Well, "Nip & Tuck" I don't have to go to church and get baptized for if you just go up in town these days you will get all the water you want. Come on, Bright Light. I like to read your letters, and hit "Jolly" an other blow or two and I think she will ring off and come over on the union side and eat John Mitchell's grub a gairi. Come on "Uncle John" and also "Wild Bill." Ye writer visited Nina Jordan today who is some better. Well, as it is getting late I will ring off wishing the News and its many readers success. Silver & Gold. WHITWELL. Special to the Ntus. We are enjoying good health here in Scabbtown. Whitwell is doing fine. I am a union girl and have a union father and two union brothers. My father is working in Alabama and one of my brothers is at Wilder. It is hard for us to have to stay at home and our fathers and brothers be away from us but I hope that soon I can see the scabs pick up their grips and start like my father and brothers have had to. MU Our Sunday School is gaining there were twelve scabs present last Sunday chewing their tobacco and spitting on the floor. That is the way the scabs do in our little town. The preacher may be praying and a scab will come stamping in and will not even take off his hat That shows that Tnpy they have not been raised right, have just been raised up by the . of the head. They are very polite when a union girl passes them in the road. Come again, "Coperas Breeches." We like to read your letters. Darling. A Grim Tragedy is daily enacted, in thousands of homes as Death claims, in each one, another victim of Consumption or Pneumonia. But when Coughs and Odds are prop erly treated, the tragedy is averted. F. G. Huntley, of Oaklandon, Ind., writes: My wife had the consumption and three doctors gave her np.

Parker, of Etna, was in the city Sunday. James Harris' new store house in the northern part of the city is about com pleted. Chas. Furgerson, who accidentally shot himself some two months ago, is still in a very critical condition. Quite a number from Etna mountain have come here in the last few days in search of work. Mr. and Mrs. Murry, of Dunlap, were in the city Sunday visiting their son, Ed Murry. Mace Young, formerly of this place, now of Arkansas, is in the city. Our merchants report last week as a very dull week. Can't our county candidates stir around and get up some ' excitement. e have two or three candidates in this district and there is no reason why they should not begin to hustle. If you want to be sheriff or go to the Legis lature, let it be known through the columns of the News and you will be a winner. ' WHITWELL. Special to the News. We are having more rain than sun shine. Bud Fanner, of S6. Pittsburg, made a flying trip to Whitwell Sunday. Won der what was his hurry. Mrs. John King visited Mrs. Jack Ridings Sunday. Dr. Thompson has been very sick, but is improving. Land sakes! but didn't Dixie have a fine Christmas! If I hadn't lived so far I would have ate dinner with him Wonder how come Dixie's dog to be so smart. Guess he had gone to school A negro shot another negro through the arm on the hill today. I think the Company has brought the roughest set of negroes here that could be found any where. I am afraid the frost will get Morn ing Glory for the Company has turned him loose and he hasn't any hot house to stay in now. I notice that "Nip & Tuck" has ap peared again. He says an education is one thing we all need. I agree with him there. Again he says let us not have to work and slave like negroes, but let us make ladies and gentlemen out of ourselves. That is what we want. If I was working like "Nip & Tuck" I wouldn't call myself a gentle man for I don't think a gentleman would take another man's job from him. I am glad that "Nip & Tuck" has begun to think about Sunday school. I think parents ought to send their children to Sunday school and public schools also and teach them not to scab, not to try to take the rights and privileges away from any onee. Come again, Herrin, 111. , for I like to read the news from all parts ot the country. What has become of Dixie? I have n't heard from him in a week or two. Guess he ate so much Christmas that his toenails came off. Mrs. Jack Riding has been on the sick list. Ye writer has been on the sick list, Best wishes to the News and its un ion readers. Morning Star. RED HILL Special to the News. Rain and mud is the order of the day. G. B. Powell was in our vicinity Friday of last week. W. C. Shirley and J. Jr. liogers are founding a saw and grist mill at Shir levton where they will wait on the public. The old man, who is 75 years of age talks as though he could teach the un ion something if they would listen to him. I want him to know that the union could teach him a great deal if he would come up and listen to them, Thev could teach him more about his own welfare than ho has learned in all his 75 years of existence.

I saw a rabbit today running might lv fast. The reason he ran that way was because he couldn't fly, and it is reported by Charm Thomas that there is a rabbit on the ridge near hitwell that is bare of fur or hair, and has so many shots in him that he runs hw as a dog, and a liberal reward will lie civen for his scalp.

We were sorry to hear of vm inr Mr. nett , at Jasper, seriously stabbin Haynes. we ic luioriuo.i over the . . phono that Ilaynes opened up the trouble by knocking Burnett in the ead with a club, and Burnett ent Hayncs seven or eight times in s,,f euee. Burnett is a nephew of v White, of this place, mid ellest son of Dr. E. A. Burnett. His grandfather was Robt. N. White, deceased, whose name is not yet forgotten through 0t the county. Burnett is respected by all up here and never was in anv trin,' ile in his life before he left home to go to So. Pittsburg to learn the moulder's trade. From there he went to Chatta nooga where he and John Tate worked some four or five months. Burnett and Tate had just returned and had taken a contract with D. M. Tate, the latter' s father, at tho timo this trouble arose over a small turnip patch that was outside enclosure. The boys hap pening to pass through part of it with their log wagons is what started the trouble. I want to congratulate my friend, 'Nip & Tuck. His wherealmuts have been unknown for months past but at last he steps forward and lifts his hat and salutes the News and staff by saying he wishes them success, and all the News readers, which you know up here is atleast two-thirds union, and if you mean what you say I want to take you by the hand and extend to rou the right hand of union fellowship I believe, from reading your letter, that you have professed Christ, from the good advice you give on Christian ity, morality and education. All the members of Local 287 unanimously en dorse your lecture on that subiect. That is the fundamental principal that unionism is based on, education, Chris tianity and morality, and let me con gratulate you, "Nip & Tuck," on your good advice. Hope you will con tinue to preach this same doctrine and meet me at the Red Men's hall next Saturday week, and confer the honor on me of introducing you as a conver ted man, .as a peace advocate for law and order, for Christianity, and moral ity, education and temperance. I know you will accept this proposition. Its fair and reasonable and for the best for all classes of laboring men. Will yon come? Let your answer be, "Yes I'll be there." The T. C. I . Co. has relieved itself of a great burden by discharging about twenty -five guards that have cost them a great deal of money and trouble. Doubtless, in my mind, it has been the instigation of the bulk of crime that hs been committed here. If they will all adopt "Nip & Tuck's " advice peace is at hand. Let us hoist the white flag of peace, the battle is over, the baby is born, its name is union, its daddy is the U. M. W. of A. with Pres. John Mitchell in the chair. Those whore not natural born Amer ican union sons, the daddy of thetJ.M W. of A. will receive by adoption in to the union family.N Following is the Justice of the Peace court record for last week: State vs, Will Cross, charged with getting mon ey under false pretenses; S.

Special to the News, v . We see one of our Tennessee boys from Ft. Slocum, N. Y., signs his name "Rookie," and I think I know him. We notice he speaks bravely in favor of the union, yet he don't spat at the non-union men very hard and that is my way of doing business. I don't believe in jumping on a man un til you have showed him the error of his way. We people here in the south, should remember and bear well in mind that we can't build up here in five or ten years what it took other countries a hundred and fifty years to buildup. So come on "Rookie" and will ask our noble editor to publish your letters. I think such -letters as you write will bring forth good fruits in the future, and if I am not mistak en in who you are, you are fully able to come right along with some thing good every .week. Sorry to note that Charles Furguson, who shot himself about seven weeks ago, is no better at this writing. He may go to Chattanooga for treatment if the weather will permit. Mr. Taylor is on the sick list this week. R. F. Ashburn was the guest of Geo. Cary Monday evening. Russell liken to talk over old times. Two young men went sparking Sun day and one wanted to stay and hunt the hen's nest. Miss Rose Knox looked sad Sunday but said there will be another day. Come on, all of you correspondents, with your little, sawed-off names. I like to hear from you. Pat Cary left Saturday to attend the miners'convention, which is said to be the largest ever held in Indianapo lis. There will be not less than 1000 delegates at that convention.
