HAD SITUATION. Tbe act of violence chronicled from b miniiicf troubles in" Alabama are deplorable. The influence of the .min isters of the various churches in the district have not been able to avert bloodshed, despite their strong efforts to Hflcnra mediation between laborers and capitalists. Doubtless they have influenced the members of their flocks but there are large numbers outside of church influence of any kind, who will not heed admonitions or advice, and net. onlv as oroniritt'd on the spur of the moment through a desire for re venge or inflamed with whiskey. Ev ery effort has been made to secure iaee but the capitalists have not de sired anything but to have their own way, and the union laborer was equal ly rmrsuaded that to continue to work for the capitalist under declining wag eg and adverse conditions was only a slow death anvway. and chose rather to make a fight for better things, whether they secured them or not. There will probably be more bloodshed before the union miners are whipped or the canitalists relent, but this does not mean necessarily that the union sanctions or authorizes the bloodshed There are alwavs men who will take things into their own hands despite all counsel, and drag down others in the endeavor to gain the mastery. Mean while the wealthy mine owner will en joy the luxuries of life, while his hir ed minions will either receive or shoot bullets, and the humble miner whose claim for recognition of the only or ganization to which he can belong, which ensures him, if recognized, sufficient wage to live on decently, will eat food furnished him by workers of his order in other places, and patient ly wait It is a sad picture to look on m this great century of progress and civilization. To the Alabama miners we would say: "keep cool; don't do any violence, and don't give in one inch from your right to have decent wages. Red Hill now having a brand new church, the News would like to hear of Whitwell having a brand new schoolhouse. A new church building looks "heap" better than yet some men want a grog Nhop, and local option. CLIFTY. Special to the News. We have had some nice rain these last few days.

The strike at this place is still on. Everything is nniet. There has not been uny distnrlmnce as yet that amount to anything. A negro who lives up in the negro quarters that is working, tried to get tip some dmturb- ance by getting np aixmt lummgnt and shooting several times with a Win chester, but it happened that some ne groes saw bim doing this shooting, and at the same time he stole some dyna mite from a neigh bor and put it under his house, trying to make it apiiear fiat someone was trying to blow up bis house, but the owner oi the uyna mite identified it so there were war rants sworn out for the negro. The miners have been out since July 1 and this is the only trouble that has occurred. There is no camp in the State that has a better body of men, There are now 348, all law abiding men. The wnole local went to Horse Creek yesterday, Aug. 7, to a big speaking. in. Fairley, the national organizer of Birmingham, and Mr. Pasco, nat ional organizer of Illinois, were the speakers. There were fully 2,000 peo ple on the ground. Some of the opera tors and the general managers of Horse Creek mines made the threat that they were going to kill Mr. Fairley when they got in reach of him, but they were all arrested on the spot and ev erything went oft in the best of order. Tbe big meeting of laliornien was op ened with song and prayer and closed with song. "How Firm a foundation , and prayer. We have a spy in our midst for after the miners had all left this place for Horse Creek some one went to the telephone in the ofhee and 'phoned to Horse Creek ahead of us that there were two wagon loads of guns left here for Horse Creek. The wagons that were supposed to contain the guns were met one and a half miles from Horse Creek by ten armed guards and thirty soldiers. They found out that there wasn't a gun in the entire crowd and there wasn't two dozen pocket knives in the entire body. The whole union body declare that they know that the officials of the Empire Coal Co. never sent that notice because they are too gentlemanly to do such a low-down trick. It was done by some one that has access to the phone, so there was nothing made at this. All got home in nice order. The boys got another car load of grub Thursday and have maths another order. Plenty of grub will make the men hold out, for starvation will sure make a man break his oath, but I pity a man that will take an oath before his maker and then go right back on it by going back to work, something he promised before God and man that he never would do, and at the same time have plenty to eat, but I don't think that we have such as this at this place, What does God say about an oath that man takes? Read Rom. 30:2. "If a man vow a vow unto the Lord or swear an oath to bind his soul with bond he shall not break his word; be shall do according to all that proceed out of his mouth." Anyone that will break such an oath as the tinted Miners take, will not keep an oath in any other lodge, but we hope that we haven any such at this place because the state of Alabama cannot muster up a better lot of men than are at this place. The men that are out are pro fessional men, men that are coal dig gers and machine men and all other kinds of work that is required around a mining camp. We think it would be a big damage to the company to dis pose of practical men and put on un experienced men as the T. C. I. Co, did at Whitwell, Tenn., and other places, which soon ruined their mines. Our superintendent and bank boss have got these mines in as good shape as anv mines in the state. It takes ex perienced men to make a success in all Kinds of occupations. The men are out for better wages. Who can blame them for that? A man is no man that won't stand for his rights if he thinks he isn't getting his rights. Good wages should be de sired by every man, because good wa ges is a mighty factor in this world in which we live. Just think what good wages can do for the individual, Think what good wages can do for the family. It can surround our. loved ones with good books. Uoou wages can provide the highest culture for our children. It will make our homes the center of a delightful and religious cir cle, .lust think what good wages could do for the church. The cause of Christ is languishing all over this world because there is no money snfli cient to carry on Christ's work. The rich man has the money and keeps the poor, lalwring man down so low that he has no money for Christ's cause. Now, to all union men, I exhort you in the name of the King on High, to be dilizent and self denying that suc cess mav crown your efforts, and may God prosper those jieople that will stand ont for their rights, for he says that the lalwrer is worthy of his hire.

Spears to a Chat tanooga News reporter last week, but it would n't be a hard matter to get the doctor to make the race.

Special to llu S'ews. I ut now two days ltehind time this week, but it the train don't rnn too fast I will get in a few of the most iniiiortunt issues of this end. Election passed off qnietly up here as to H. M. Westmoreland' for sheriff, F. A. Kelly for trustee, .1. K. Tate for tax assessor, but, oh my Lord, when you struck the ticket on the county lioard of education ! This great school fnsilade, those two great school fac tions, that have Wn warring with each other so long. They left polities outside of loth on tbe east side of the river from New Hope to the district line, and both democrats and republi cans voted for J. A. Walker, Jr. There were only eight of this middle faction at Hickory (rove and eight votes were all Mr. Dykes got here, while on the other side Mr. Walker got 41 votes in a republican precinct. The scholastic population of this school numbers (14 , and through Air. Barker's instructions the school was put right in one corner of the district, over the protest of the advisory board and the majority of tbe parents and jieople of the community. I reckon it was because he was raised there and dadsaid to put it there, and yes, dad said to W. A. Griffith, one of the ad visory board, today, that the people of Hick's Chapel should not have a day's school, and wouldn't get the benefit of a dollar's worth of their children's money that was prorated to them. Now, people, you would like to know just how we stand and how we feel a bout this school matter, so here she goes. The 'census shows 94 children numlered, covering both school houses. The number of children that are in daily'attendance with two teachers is only 19. They count 21, but Will Bar ker's and Joe Rheal's two least ones are under age, about 5 years. There are 75 out that belong to Hick's school that won't go a day. It is impossible to ever increase the numlier at Hick ory Grove, for every one in the little bound is out, and none to come in. Now, these 75 school children want to know when dad said they shouldn't have a day's school, and the question is put to this lward member, ,if he is one of the board of education of Marion County, or the son. This reminds me of the National issue that was on that read 10 to 1. This school question as it stands, is 75 to is. The school saw says it is the duty of the board of education to centralize and put tbe public school as near the center as invi sible, at the most convenient place, so as to avoid reducing the number of children by so doing and accommo date the scholastic population of . the district. Has this been done? No an swer. Now comes the fun, the chair man of the board is called upon and other board members that are not re lated to these two factions, to see if he has any power.or shall dad still run ahead with 19 children, as he said to Mr. Griffith, with two teachers, pay ing one $50 and the other $35 per month for only 19 children. Does the late act of the new school law say that a public school of this kind can contia- U6to run with two teacberswhere th fail to secure one-fourth of the nu ber of the scholastic population of district? If that is law, it's funn me. It may be, but it don't right. I have been now and al have been heretofore in all matter controversy willing to yield to the lority of my countrymen. You always nnci ye writer witn tne nil ity, and never attached to the mil ty to break down or tear nw the 1 schools of my home. If I though was advocating more school troui. by trying to harmonize these cont ing factions, I would bow my he and give up the ghost. I am willii for Dan Tate to come np here and st if he can settle this warfare. If notl ing more, give each child their ju dues and their pro rate if noth more, and avoid further troubles am maintain and promote the interests of a higher standard of education. .Representative. Sayre, Ala. Special to the Neivs. Today has been very pleasant but my heart is sad. I don't know where 1 will sleep tomorrow night. I may spread my bed on the grass and take my little babe in my amis. If it takes that to win this strike, I can lay out there without a bed and wrap my babe in my old motherhubbard. We intend to win. I think some of these com panies are about to repent. I heard a ;i4-year old girl say this evening she met a Sayre scab and he had a hat in his hand, and she guessed he carried it to measure his coal in. I wouldn't shake hands with a blackleg for they are poison to all laboring men who desire justice. "Bonny Boy," I don't think you need to be uneasy about the Sayre boys. They are quiet, just letting the company do them any old way. I think the boys of Sayre are cultivating their raising. If they hold ont a while long er they will succeed. Poor old scabs! How foolish they are. I am not sorry for them, but they are most all poor, for they don't get enough to eat. Thank God, the union people get plen ty. The scabs could get plenty, too, if they had the nerve of a union 'man. I understand that Mitch el went to dig ging coal at Sayre this morning. Well, that isn't any worse than I was expect ing. He gave tbe union their last no tice to vacate the houses. Sister. No great characters are formed in this world without suffering and self denial. Ex.
