McCal presiding, for the purpose of affording our people an opportunity of meeting President Stone of the Weatherford, Mineral Wells & Northwestern road Mr. Stone in addressing the meeting said he had hoped that by this time we should have raised our bonus, and he would be able to carryback to Kansas City this news. He stated candidly that the projectors of the road hoped to make a good deal of money out of their undertaking, which they now pn> posed to share with Weatherford. He further stated that unless Weatherford raised the bonus they would be obliged to adopt the original plan and run from Millsap to Mineral Wells. He called attention to the fact that the road could not reasonably be expected to pay any dividends for a year or two, and that the $40,000 was not nearly suff...

Chicago, June 22 A morning pa- per publishes the result of an investi- gation into the condition of the mining people ol the coal mining towns of I laird wood and Streator, III. It says the condition of Bairdwood is one to call fourth commiseration and imme- diate practical help from the people of the United States. The normal populations of the towns is about 5000, all directly dependent upon the coal mining industry for their support. At this time not one ounce of coal is being mined and the inhabitants are at the point of starvation. Men, women and children alike share in the blight which has overcast this section. The causes of this stagnation are two,namely, continued depression in the coal industry here and the culminating strike or lockout which has placed 1500 bread winners beyond the pos- sibility of utilizing their labor. The reporter found many families with six, e...
