UNIONS
BRYAN SPEAKS OF THEM
TERMS OF THE HIGHEST
PRAISE,
IN
THEY HAVE DONE MORE GOOD
THAN ANY OTHER
FORCE.
CHICAGO, .March 18. - William Jen
nings Bryan, at the closing conference
yesterday, in connection with the in- j
dustrial exhibit, expressed the opinion
that trade union had done more for the
g(xKl of society than any other force in
this country.
Although he disclaimed any "scien
tific" knowledge of the question, Mr.
Bryan's remarks were received with
much satisfaction by the audience of
tinion men from the federation of la
bor, which attended the meeting.
"The unions have made some mis
takes hut they have accomplished more
good," was the keynote of his speech.,
He paid tribute especially to the or
ganization of women in this connec
tion. ' !
"When we consider that through
trade unions wages have been increas
ed, hours have been shortened, and
infort afforded the working man in
greater meaRnre,'' he said, l'I think
we have a right to say the benefits re
sulting from these unions cannot be
over-estimated. Perhaps no other
force in the country ever has become
so effective ror improvement in tne
citizenship and general moralities of
our people
'The.Anstralian ballot system, for
one thing, is largely due in this coun
try to the agitation of the trade unions.
I almost feel safe is saying that had it
not been for the interest taken in this
reform by these organizations we
might be still, employing the old sys
tem of voting.' '
"If the labor unidn hud never done ganizifig a lodge of Coining
anything less than raise the age limit America. They will have
mines and factories of this national be
lieve this accomplishment alone would
justify its existence No influence in
this country has ever been so evil in
its effects as the tendency to crowd the
workshops with children of tender
years. It is a most destructive ten
dency and one that the public con
. science should protest against."
; ! Refering to women In industry," Mr.
Bryan said be believed women might
accomplish as much -as men through
organization into unions.

There was quite an excitement in
our town one day last week. A negro
by the name of Will Jackson, who got
too much extract of wildcat, and be
came very noisy was finally arrest
ed by Sheriff Joe Raynes and was held
in custody until 10 a.m., when he was
released. After paying bis fine and
leaving he made a few insulting re
marks while passing near the commis
sary on his way home. There were
six shots fired at him by someone and
he was found the next morning dead
in front of the feed stable. Just one
ball pierced his heart. The negroes re
fused to bury him. so the Empire Coal
Co. , had to put him away. All the
negroes refused to go to work for two
days. Frank Nelson, the president of
the Empire Coal Co., called them all
to the negro hall and made a talk to
them and since then every black man
lias gone back to work and now an is
well.

CONVINCING REPLY.
Editor News:
We noticed in the News a piece from
Clyde Griffith in his non-union argu
ment. He says the company has 100
or 150 company men, besides the coal
diggers. Prior to the lockout they had
about 75 company men, including the
drivers, so you see that one union
man was equal to two non-union men.
I was at Whitwell about all the time
during the two years of 11)05 and lilOO.
I heard some of the citizens say that
times were duller in the summer of
lttOfl than it was in 1!)04 when the
strike began. "During the time that he
claims that farmers sold water melons
for 3 and 5 cents I saw melons sold
from wagons for 95c to 40c. Farmers
got from 00c to 75c for corn ; cows
were from sf:)0 to 50. The merchants
all had a good trade. There were two
church houses built during the six
years of union labor at Whitwell. He
says he worked on the farm up to the
time when the company commenced
to open shop. They are not open shop.
The mines are closed to union men and
have been ever since the lock out in
11)04.
He boasts about the union being dead
at Whitwell. The union is not dead
in Sequachee Valley. The spirit of it
is still there. Who is reaping the ben
efits of the union? The non-union, of
course.
He says they are opening up No. 5.
That opening was made with union la
bor four or five years ago.
The output of the mines was one
thousand tons daily. Would like for
Mr. Griffith to state how many days
the output has been a thousand tons
since the open shop plan, as he calls it.
The union men are not at work at
Whitwell because they would not sur
render their union principles..
Mr. Griffith tries tovet it into tne
minds of the people that there were no
strikes until they commenced to work
union labor. Was, there any union in
time of the 1984 strike? No, there
was not.
He doesn't know anything about
the union. He never worked at a un
ion camp and has no right to know. If
he had ever worked at one he would
talk differently to what he does.

UNCLE GID'S LETTER.
In the early davs of our country the
people were very superstitious. Often
have I sat for hours and listened to the
old folks tell about "hants," ghosts and
witches. My great -grandfather Smith
professed to be a wizard or witch doc
tor, and every negro on his place be
lieved old massa could see them all the
time; 'no difference where he was.
One time he was going off to be gone
all day, bo he told the women folks he
wouldn't! be back until late and if any
old woman came and wanted anything
for them not to let her have it. Late
in the evening Grandmother said an
old lady came up to the gate with a
little budget and came on up to the
house. No one invited her in or said
"takeaseal" Pretty soon she wanted
a drink of water. No one gave it to
her. Then she wanted a pipe of to
bacco but no one gave her any. Then
she went into the negro house and ask
ed for tobacco and it scared the ne
groes for they had been told what
might be expected. So she did not get
any. . Supper was prepared and not a

Etna is not improving much. They
are having a great many coal diggers
coming here, but I don't see any more
coal coining from the mines. Some
people say that the reason they don't
run any more coal is because Charlie
Vicars is not here.

moved to North Birmingham.
The Klondike Coal Mine is about to
shut down because W. D. Hawkins is
gone.

Special to the News.
Say, some of you brothers ought to
come to this country for a while"" and
see the new state. We have as fine a
prospect for a town here as anywhere
in the state. The coal runs rrom iour
to five feet on 38-degree pitch and ev
erything ia union strong. There are
four slopes running here sow and .the
same company is . opening two more
close by. Everything is new and work
is good. Fine prospects for work all
summer. If you have been keeping up
with the times you will see that the
new state is coming to the front and
as we are in the heart of the South
western Coal Mining district we are
coining in for our part of the work.
Old Tennessee is all right, but 89
the non-union people are pretty thick
there I think this is the best place for
a working man who wants to get a
fair show. 'Zu Zu" and myself are
from Tennessee and have not forgotten
our home place and hope to see it soon,
but we wish for a change in the hearts
of some of the unreasonable people
that have taken the place of good un
ion men and have sent them away
from their homes to seek work, but
thin k their davs are short in that
country. We pray that they will be
anyway.
"Zu Zu" is on his way to a party at
the home of Miss hsther Bullards.
There will be box supper here the
night of the 10th to help build t

bite was offered the poor old lady. At
bed time they all laid down and the
old lady untied her bundle and . spread
down some old pieces of quilts before
the fire and lay down also. Late in
the night Granddaddy came home but
never paid any attention to the old la
dy, but went to bed and was lying
there watching the old lady. All at
once she had a spell of some' kind,
bouncing up and down, and the froth
running out of her month.,.. . ;
Granddaddy jumped out of bed and
called for Sallie, that was my grand
mother, to bake a thin hoe cake of
corn bredright quick. She did so and
granddavldy took a knife and split the
hoe cake open and went to the old wo
man and wiped the' froth from her
month and face and then asked Sallie
which was the meanest dog on the
place. They told him and he called
up the dog and gave him the bread.
Both the old woman and the dog left
that night and never were seen again
by the family. The dog was Uncle
Tom i favorite hound and he swore
that Granddaddy had to do something
else to get rid of witches instead of
running off his bounds. " ".-
I've never disputed my Grandmoth
er a story, but some how i can t en
dorse the witch part of it though I've
often heard my father say that Grand
daddy could do things no one else
could do, and he said himself that he
had no son or grandson that he would
teach as everyone of them was too
high-tempered.
I suppose that in ancient days witch
craft was prevalent, but I don't know
since the days of Christ so much about
it . .
