ALTOONA, ALA. Special to the Atws. As this is Sunday morning and the rain is fulling fast I will let the pun kin roll through old Sequatchie alley. The boys are all very quiet this morning. Mrs. Leddiecoat, the boarding Mis tress, is very ill. We had a short song by J. F. Turn fir. I will rive the chorus: "There is a great day coming; a great day com ing when the scabs and the miners will be parted right and left. I am ready for that day to come. "There is a big day coming when the scabs will do the running and then I will stay with my baby at home." Ike Kilgore, a well known Tracy scab, went to work here and claimed he had a card of the U. M. W. of A, but the boys investigated his case by writing to a friend at Tracy City, and found his claim was false. So the com mittee notified the Superintendant to T1RV him off and send him down the road and he did. Will and Wes Moser and Than Hoop er left here Thursday of last week to spend a few happy days with their famliy and friends. J. H. Hooper will leave here Friday to visit his wife at Whitwell.

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 19. -The convention of the United Mine Work ers of America to-day continued con sideration of resolutions. One of the most important taken up was a resolu tion favoring the acceptance of trans fer cards from the Western Federation of Miners in lieu of an initiation fee. The proposition was lost by decisive vote. W. H. Haskins, President of the Ohio miners, introduced a resolution providing that every district shall es tablish a defence fund, the assessment for which shall not be less than 25 cents a month. The Constitution Com mittee proposed to refer it to the lo cals, but not making it obligatory up on them to comply with the order. This was done. President Mitchell spoke to the question, and closed by taking a stand sfgainst making the creation of a de fence fund obligatory on the districts on the ground that the levying of the assessment might disrupt the organiz ation in certain weak districts. Secretary Wilson, is the course of debate, argued centralization ot de fence funds. There was another argument when it was proposed that any district not hav ing a membership of 1,000 should not have a representation on the National Executive Board. This was defeated. The race question was up only for a few minuets in the discussion of a res olution providing that local union with large membership, or which there are 100 or more colored members, shall be entitled to send one colored delegate, and if the white vote in the local un ion is in the majority they cannot de bar the colored members representa tion. Some minor changes were made in the wording of the transfer cards. The convention voted $10,000 for relief of families of the victims of the Paint Creek, W. Va., Valley disaster. Among the resolutions tabled was one seeking to place the Mine Workers on record as favoring the control of every branch of labor included in one industry by one union as is the case in the organization of the miners. Presi dent Mitchell took the flodr and vigor ously opposed the adoption of this res olution, taking the stand that the Mine Workers had no right to advise as to the manner of conduction other trade unions. Following his speech the res olution was tabled by an almost unan imous vote. The convention then adjourned until 9 o'clock the following morning. Sp, cial to 'he Naws.

Democratic committee (Havron wing) held a session here Saturday to discuss plans for campaign.' Travel between here and So. Pitt burg is practically stopped via the pike on account of the big cave-in near So. Pittsburg. , The Cumberland Banner office now has a force of nine employed, and bus iness is hustling in that shop. Work on the foundation of S. F, Patton's brick is completed and the walls will soon go up under the skillful workmanship of Jas. Lane. A great deal of building will be done this snrincr. and the erection of three frame store buildings are c temnlated by various parties. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. M. Brown, of Victoria, were in the city Saturday, Miss Harriet Simpson is visiting relatives in Cincinnati Foster Kellv is clerking for Sam Simpson. ' Thr urn onlv ten candidates for Sheriff of the county now out. Sheriff Harris is still confined to his room with rheumatism contracted by exposure during the troubles at Whit well. I notice that some of the correspond ents, in writing on our labor troubles, are very much in the dark as to the causes. One asserts he would run his own mines and workshops or blow them up. Poor fellow, he is more to be pitied than scolded pitied for his dense ignorance. Oh he is just the kind of man that feels his self-importance and no man must dictate ot him. He must be supreme. He must fix wacres and tiroclaim the conditions. He is the it. He fought nearly four years for the privilege of doing as he pleas es. Now, I would like for this would-be philosopher to point out to mo a single intelligent union man that wants his union to dictate, assume and control the Company's business. I know this charge is made frequently. Now let me tell you .something. Don't you know the Company was responsible for the burden that was put on the un ion and told the foreman that "What ever the committee said 'went'"? and " to give them rope enough and they would hang themselves." Yes"" said the foreman, ' 'but in hanging them selves they will hang somelwdy else. " This was a scheme concocted to bring the union into disrepute and make it nil inn a and snmn men belonging to or did belong to the Tennessee Consolida ted fVnnnanv. know the above state ment is true and will not deny it. The fact is, gentlemen, if you will take the pains to search out the truth before rushing into print and making assertions and statements, you will find your letters will have a better tone, Your Uncle Gid kicked at the nnion tor Hswnminc snch a burden but men are grown up children and can be spoilt just about as easy and they have been sinned against more than sinning. Ignorance of what unionism is begets brutality towards it. 1 The Clifty Creek Coal Co. displays its ignorance of what the union Is and told a falsehood in the discharge of those miners. They say a non-union man has no right to accept work at a union mine. Well, your Uncle Gid, worked at a union mine until the lock out and no union miner questioned my right. Like all the other charges made Dfrninat nrcranized labor, anything to l'rv o ' - array non-union labor against tne un ion men 1 That's the ideal Several non-union men worked in the same camp where I worked without being questioned. Let the truth be told at any cost. So this like other lies,, can be refuted. All honest men are not to bo lured into fighting men whose ambition is to better conditions and if the enemies of union 'labor will take a peep behind the curtains where the plans and schemes are "concocted to destroy it, they would never utter another sland erous charge or repeal one mane against it. Your uncle Gid has been a close observerand he has some little in sight into matters and knows some of the inwardness of the thing, and some folks are very much troubled because they know I do know, and they know further that I may take it into my old grey head to hew to the line. Now, gentlemen, state your charges specifically and be sure you have good proof, for if you don't I'll , wake you up. Now, the intelligent onion man acknowledges mistakes have been made and acts committed that they could not help or even knew anything about and no set of men regrets the hellish lawlessness done and sought to be laid at their doors more than they do. Thev have been under espionage all the time and not a single act is charg eable to them, even the shots said to be fired at the Sheriff of Grundy coun ty, was not done by union men, but by a scab and outsider. Oh what a halle lujah the enemies of the union would raise if they could just get some union man into serious trouble ! Well, the union has lost all her riff-raff They have deserted and gone, for which extend my hearty congratulation to the union ! Gone to scabbing. UNCLE GID.

"Wild Bill" says if I will come down to her rag pile she will dress me up, for which I am thankful. The fact is, if she has anything better than I have she should have them on for the last time I saw her the strings and rav elings were in the wind a-plenty.
