TWO BIG MASS MEETINGS HELD BY UNION MINERS


The United Mine Workers held two big public meetings during the past week, one in the Miners' Hall Thursday evening and another in front of the hall on Sunday afternoon. The Thursday night meeting was proceeded by a big parade out Lloyd Street, with hundreds of men, women and children being in the line of march. Speeches were made by the leaders in the hall later. The workers and their families were encouraged to keep up the picketing, but were urged by the speakers to avoid all violence as such conduct would do the cause more harm than good. The open air meeting on Sunday was addressed by William Welsh and others. Mr. Welsh told the mine workers that they had nothing to fear from the state troopers who have been sent to Nanty-Glo as they were their friends. He also stated that a mediator would be sent here from the state labor bureau in a few days. Another mass meeting will be held at the hall tonight, to be addressed by Paul W. Fuller, Mr. Welsh and others.

NO FATALITIES LAST YEAR IN HEISLEY OPERATIONS

Joseph J. Walsh, secretary of the Pennsylvania department of mines, has written a letter to L. G. Ball of Philadelphia, president of the Heisley Coal Co., which has operations here and elsewhere in which he says: "During the year 1925 the operators of the bituminous coal region of Pennsylvania produced 433,547 tons of coal for each fatal accident. The greatest regional production per fatality of which there is any record. It is truly a remarkable accomplishment. I note that at your operations 216,322 tons of coal were produced without a single fatality. This is an extremely fine showing, one that you may well be proud of, as it indicates that great care was exercised in the management of your mines."
