I have not opened that last lot of goods I got from you, so I will just return them to you instead of paying you ten cents in cash on the dollar. I am willing to do that, be cause I am your friend."

The first batch of darkies from Kan sas City swore up and down they knew nothing about the Bevier strike. I asked them if they had seen you in Kan sas City, one owned that he had. I told him that you would not have allowed them to come to Bevier without you had told them of our trouble.

I learned that many of these darkies, make a business of going from place to place to take the places of strikers not to work but to guard the mines and claim the protection of American citizenship. At the Hock ing Valley some of these had been well paid. This kind of work is called "bleed ing" getting a sum from the company and a sum from the citizens. We work ed hard and pursuaded the first batch from Kansas City, to go home paying their fare, then in a few days we saw 18 darkies from Kansas City again, and two of these darkies from the first shipment. We were on our way to Hannibal and everything seemed to grow lively for about five minutes, but the darkies dared not come out side the pen, with their arms, several arrests were made, one bold darkey came into the car and was nailed at once by the sheriff.

They wanted to get off at the pen but we paid their way to Macon, and brought men to guard them, and gave them supper and a drop of beer, and then put them in a box car for K. C.

We think that they have forgotten him who went around doing good giving sight to the blind, and making the lame walk. Such love of filthy lucre disgraces the people who profess to be followers of Christ. Rich Hill.

Thegreat topic of conversation among the miners here is the new law regulating the weighing of coal, mined in Missouri, and which we published some time ago in the Journal. This law takes effect on June 25th, and many are the conjectures both among tho miners and operators as to its proba ble effect on the mining trade in the state. Of course, the operators predict the complete ruin of their business if the min ers insist on maintaining the present price of 3 cents per bushel and the miners are asking themselves the question as to the gjd of passing a law ostensibly for their benefit and then be forced to sub mit to a reduction in prices in order that. the operators may not lose any part of their immense profits. Capitalists shout for a reduction in the already too low wagos of the miners, whenever they see any chance to carry their point, but their own dividends must be forthcoming, let what may happen, let the people starve with hunger, let them live in hovels, and go almost rags, the masters care nothing, so long as they get their profits.

No law, no reform is worth a cent to us that does not reduce the profits of the idlers and increase the wages of the workers. This should be our great aim through organizations, to move gradual ly on the strongholds of Capital, to force it to give way bit by bit, to tell it square ly that it now usurps laborer's throne and that it must abdicate in favour of the only monarch that should rule the world.
