BROWNING MINES OPERATING
Tipple Cat Off Bat Black Diamonds Being
Hanied in Wagons to Cars,
FLAT TOP C. L. ASSN. HOLDS FORT
But Browning Flanking Its Forces and
Says He is Still in the Fight.
It was thought when Judge Jackson
lismissed the rules for contempt in the
?ase of Browning vs. The Southwest Va.
Improvement Company, that it would
result in a practical closing of the mining
operations of Col Browning at Pocahontas.
such, however, has not been the result.
We were at Pocahontas last week, and
ivhile there concluded to go and visit the
jlace that had recently been the scene of
io much excitement to the parties concern
;d. It was a new and heretofore unex
jlored region to us. We found the tipple
n the complete possession of the Flat Top
Joal Kind Association, which had a guard
)f several men at the small building that
lad been placed acrose the track leading
o the tipple. We jocularly asked one of
he guard what the building was, and he
ephed that it was the new Pocahontas
inn. Our reply was <:it appears to be in
here." The writer then proceeded to the
nines of Col. Browning, and he was po
itely and cordially received by that gen
leman. As soon as we got upon the
grounds we were astonished at the activity
vhich appeared on all sides. A little en
iine, which is calied "Jim Jr.," came puf
ing out of the main entrance to the mines,
)ulling a number of small ears loaded with
'black diamonds." We went on a little
urther and eaw a temporary tipple, where
he cars were being pushed up, one at a
ime,and their contents damped in wagons,
ome drawn by two horees or mulrs and
ome by four. These wagons with their
oads of coal were rapidly taken to a point
ibout a hundred or hundred and fifty
?ards north of the mines, where cars were
lauding, and ehovelers were loading the
oal into the cars as quickly as possible, un?
ter the circumstances. Col. Browning told
is that with his present facilities he could
oad from six to eight cars a day; and that
le was actually loading and shipping five
nd six cars daily. He declared that while
he loss of the use of his tipple was sub
ecting him to great inconvenience and ad
litional expense it was his purpose to con
inue to mine and ship coal with such ar
angemcnts as he is now using and such
mproved methods as he can introduce
rith experience.
Everything is perfectly quiet in the vi
inity now/so far as a conflict of the forces
f Browning and the Flat Top Coal Land
association are concerned. The Associa
ion continues to hold the fort; but Browu
ag is resolutelv flanking it, and moves
long as if the enemy was not in sight and
onstantly watching his movements.
Flat Top Drug Company.
On our visit to Pocahontas last week we
ailed frequently at the store of the Flat
?op Drug Company, which is a new entcr
>rise in that city. Though recently started
he company is doing an excellent busi
less and its trade gives promise of constant
ncrease. The concern is composed of P.
\ Dillon, T. W. Landon and W. M. Dil
on. They have in their employment Mr.
?. P. Landon, who is an accomplished
h uggist and pharmacist. He i9 the only
;raduate in pharmacy that is connected
vith a drug store at Pocahontas. Tho
lompany has a splendid new soda fountain
ust received from the celebrated manu
acturer, James W. Tuft. The splendid
hinks dispensed from the fountain have
ilready established a solid reputation in
?oca. The syrups used at the fountain are
nade by the company from fresh fruits.and
he drinks they dispense are delicious.
It is an enterprising concern and will win
i One custom.
