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.

received my renewal to the News all
right of which I am proud. I want

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

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
