The struggle between the conl ope

fields in the, southern part of the
state, adjacent to the border of Ken

Thero are altogether 92.000 miners
In West Virginia. Approximately two

of whom 15,000 are union miners In"

almost solidly organized by the L'nlpn.

But buwveen Mingo and the North
lies the crucial coal district the (luy

the richest "black diamond" field in
the country and one of the richest In
the world. Together with various un

From theso mines la derived the finest
grade of bituminous coal to be found
anywhere on the fa.ee of the globe.
They hold the key to the country's
coal Industry. Con"0.uentfy they form
the crux of the tttnnlo capital-labor

to a bjoody climax.
These mines are unorganised. With
them stands or falls the open shop.

mines orffsniwd Is the nll-ovcrsh.vlow-ing

and 2O.000 men Into tho field of tho

Tho whole history of tho unionizing;
of the West Virginia coal fields is

the miners moved on them en masse.
Nine years ago they swept down upon
the Paint and Cabin Creek Mines, In
Kanawha County,- unloosing civil war
that cost 600 lives.
In 1019, in the.mid'st of tho wnr, tho
