POPULATION 4,000. Volume 1. Thurber, Texas: Saturday, February 20, 1897. Number 31 HEALTH OF COAL MINERS. AMES BARR0WMAN, mining engineer, in a paper read before the Mining Institute of Scotland, and printed in the I Transactions of the Federated Institutions of Mining En- V gineers, says: "It cannot be denied that coal mining is a dangerous occupation. With, perhaps, the exception of the railway industry, it is more prolific in accidents, fatal and other- wise, than any other occupation in the country. The annual re- ports of inspectors of mines serve only to keep the facts always before us, but they preserve a correct record of the nature and number of mining accidents. They also show, however, the progressive improvement that has taken place as regards safety in the occupation of the collier, and this has some bearing on the figures relating to health, referred to later on. Comparing the figures for 1855 with those for 1894, it will be sten that while the number of fatal accident...

The Texas Mining and Trade Journal. NEWS NUGGETS. THE gold mines opened in South Africa are said to con- tain $3,000,000,000 more, and there are other gold dis- tricts there untouched. All who believe in a 200c dollars must double their estimate. THE Corbett-Fitzsimmons fight will take place in Carson City, Nevada's capital. Dan Stuart's announcement caused wild rejoicing in the Sage Brush city. Every available building has been secured by speculative sports. GEN. JO SHELBY died at his country home, near Au- drain, Mo., at 4 o'clock last Saturday morning. The end came peacefully. The patient had been unconscious since a week before, and had been slowly dying since that time. BLACK paint daubed on the hillsides of Tennessee was mistaken for coal veins by General R. A. Alger, who now seeks the aid of the law to recover some $144,000 paid by him for about 25.000 acres of alleged mineral land. The suit promises to be a cause celebre, says the Black Diamond. THE profits of the sugar trus...

[ F disappointment, friend, you find I And kindness lagging far behind— The world untrue, and friends unkind, - 'Tis well to ever bear in mind That others, too, as well as you, Are sailing in the same old boat. Do never, comrade, sit and fret About your losses or your debt— No man was free from trouble yet— The sun will rise, the sun will set On others, too, as well as you, A-sailing in the same old baat.

Not long ago employes of the Gov- ernment were arrested and are now undergoing punishment for having mulilated the archives of the Government in order to get autographs of distinguished men and stamps attached to official documents, which they sold to dealers in those articles. It does seem that some of these dealers in stamps, autographs, etc., are not careful enough in the purchases they make, as they do not require the seller to furnish well-authenticated proof of his right to sell what he offers. All of them are, however, not so careless, as it was through one of them that the thefts from the Congres- sional Library were discovered. Some day the Government may have a fire and thief proof hall of records in which its most val- uable archives can be stored. Until then it must trust to the honesty of some of its employes and the vigilance of others to preserve what all civilized nations consicer priceless. another attemp...

The Texas Mining and Trade Journal. THE M'KINLEY CABINET. THE ASSERTION VENTURED IT WILL RANK ABOVE THE AVERAGE OF ITS PREDECESSORS. IRE Globe-Democrat thinks, and argues pointedly, that al- ready enough of the McKinley Cabinet has been selected to indicate that, in the ability and standing of its members, it will rank above the average of its predecessors, and says that "the notably strong Cabinets were Washington's, which contained Jefferson and Hamilton (just half the whole number of its members); Monroe's, which had John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford, John C. Calhoun and William Wirt; W. H. Harrison's, which had Daniel Webster, Thomas Ewing, John Bell and John J. Crittenden; Pierce's, which had William L. Marcy, Jefferson Davis and Caleb Cushing, and Lincoln's, which had William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edwin M. Stanton (from the second year onward) and Edward Bates. Each of these Cabinets, of course, had other members, but these were the greatest and best known. "In the ...

"Corbett, who only took up William Ruhlin, the Arkon ( O.) giant, as a 'fad,' dropped him recently and has now engaged Billy Woods, the Denver fighter, to assist him in training. W oods was at one time Fitzsimmons' sparring partner. With Charley White, Fitz' trainer, and Woods, his former sparring partner, Corbett will be well fortified toward learning Fitz' tricks. 1 he only one missing now who could 'tip' off Fitz' methods is Jimmy Cairoll, who developed Fitz from a green boxer to a fin- ished fighter. Carroll is in 'Frisco, and he will probably be at the training quarters. It speaks volumes of Fitz' methods when one observes how readily his tormer associates rally to Corbett's side, and expose his boxing style and tricks. which had John Quincy Adams, William Wirt; W. ui na ixicinuers^; ivionroe s, William H.

To this responded the voices of Robert McKinnon, Ben Matthews (pit boss), Robert Beveridge, James McLeary, Tom Coulson. Ben and Harry Brookman, James Blackwell and Jimmie Nickoll, who said, "We'll go!" The crowd, by this time which numbered several hundred, was para- lyzed by their admiration for the courage of the daring men who were taking one chance in a thousand for their lives, but the thought of those poor souls underground urged them to the sac- rifice. These men gathered around the man-way, and "Mac" called out to the crowd : "Men, save the fan-house, or we per- ish—God help us!" and they were lost to view, and the prayers from hundreds of hearts went up in their behalf, while the dem- onstration of human endurance from the f...

The Texas Mining and Trade Journal. *% Mr I ©per tfye ílange. Vtf M (The following story teas clipped from the "Globe-Dem- ocrat" of May 28, 1897. It is not generally known in Tliur- ber that we have an author in our midst whose stories are anxiously sought after by many of the large Eastern papers. Mr. James Bingham, weigh master at No. 6, is the gentleman to whom we allude. His stories appear regularly in the " Globe-Democrat" and Philadelphia " Times.") 11" is well to say in the beginning that this is not a story of myself. I was a most interested observer of its progress and end, and am now a sorrowing relator. The man was my nearest friend, generous, patient and brave, the best man I ever knew—and the waman the loveliest I have ever seen. They seemed made for one another, yet God willed it another way.

The guards, ev- identy having been fixed, gave no protection to the prisoners, even refusing to let them have arms with which tp defend them- selves. The trapped men, unarmed as they were, made a des- perate charge on the mob. In the melee the old man and John were killed, but Dick and the Mexican wrenched pistols from their enemies' hands, fought their way through and escaped into the mountains. From that time Dick and his companion turned against society and became highwaymen. All manner of law- lessness could be traced directly to this pair of outlaws. Stages, trains, banks and small towns were robbed, stock stolen, and the Occidental company in particular suffered frotn their depreda- tions; men were killed trying to defend their property, and so many of the compinv's people were found, shot to death, in lone- some places, that the...

I The Texas Mining and Trade Journal. "Jim," he said, in a voice that trembled with earnestness, "I have never before had a secret you did not share. Time and again I have tried to tell you this one, but I could not. I knew you must find it out. I know you too well to think you regard me as selfish, jealous or fearful of your knowing her. I love her. I am going to try to win her for my wife. God knows my love is true and sincere. Though it would wring my heart with agony, I would give her up in a moment if it would make her happier. Whether she is to be mine or not, it is a blessing from heaven to have known her and to have loved her." While to some degree interrupted by these new demands upon his time, Lem had not totally abandoned his mountain wander- ings. On a certain dull morning he concluded to take a trip. I saw him shortly after riding his pony over the river bridge, while Tasso leaped and barked before him. It was late at night when he came back and found me by the fire in ...

Good man that he was he could not tell those old people the truth. Over the range they must go. In the summer men who knew those mountains con- sidered their crossing the hardest of journeys, but when winter )egins to reign diere, to intrude within its kingdom means death. In the morning Evans came with news that the Sheriff's posse had returned, broken down and worn out, without McCord. The day, however, was such as told of storms above in the mountains and then came the night and the second day. Very early Dun- bar came down to get any news we might have, and it was not yet breakfast time when he and Evans and myself sat together in my room. The morning had dawned clear and cold. Even down in the sheltered valley there was frost and thin ice at the edge of the river. Through the vista of the creek gorge t...

They have been sead- ily falling ever since; there has been no interruption of this ten- dency, even for a year or two. Higher wages than paid any previous year have not been secured, or if so, only in localities. "Still strange as it may seem, notwithstanding the fact that wages are actually below the living basis, the number of idle miners is greater than ever. For every one that is starved out two are ready to take eis place. There are several reasons for this. In the first place modern machinery has worked a great change. In the old days of hand mining none but skilled work- men could make a living under the ground, but the invention of mining machinery gives work to a great number of men whose only requirement is a strong back and weak brains.
