SHERIFF'S POSSE FACES MOB
Governor of West Virginia Asked to
Send Troops to Kanowha.
AWAIT DETAILS OF SKIRMISH
Striking Ttml Miners Are tn Anitrr
Monti llrrnuir of Shntn Mrcd
lnl Cnmp from I'iimch
CHAIILKSTON, W. Va., Feb. S. -Governor
Glasscock. Adjutant General D. D.
Elliott nnd other state officers awaited
with anxiety this morning Information
from Mucklow concerning the fate of
Sheriff Bonner Hill and twenty-five
deputies of Kanawha county, who at an
early hour, were reported to be facing
an angry mob of striking miners In the
little mountain village. With Sheriff
Banner Hill and his men were Captain
K Guy Levy and a small party of mine
guards, and It was their belief that they
could maintain their position for an In
definite period. They are armed with
modern rifles and a rapid fire gun.
Sheriff 11111 asked the governor early
today for troops, but at the executive
office It was stated that no action would
bo taken until the details of last night's
rioting had been received here.
Significance Is attached to the fact
that two miles from the scene of last
night's skirmish Is located one of the
largest camps of striking miners In the
Kanawha coal field. Shooting from the
train, nttacked on the Chesapeake & Ohio
railroad during the night, was In the
direction of the camp, and It was feared
if any of the women and children had
been hurt the sheriff and his men would
bo unable to restrain the angry men, as
they outnumbered the posse ten to one
and are said to be well armed.
Martial law proclamation, under which
troops were sent Into the coal fields last
year, Is still In force. The legislature is
lu session and It was rumored hero this
morning that the governor would confer
with some of the leaders before answer
ing the call of Sheriff Hill for troops.
At U o'clock today Sheriff Hill reported
to the military authorities hero that he
and his men had been unable to enter
tho miners' camp, and up to that time
had been unable to ascertain whether the
firing last night had resulted In death or
Injury to any of the campers. Tho miners
and their sympathizers occupy strong
positions, guarding all approaches to the
camp. The Chesapeako & Ohio railroad
sent a number of men to the scene to pro
tect Us property. Governor Glasscock
has not yet acted on the sheriffs request

Draw poker is a flno game, full of
skill and science, and the man who knows
what to draw and when to do It is the
fellow who gets tho money. Harry Dixon,
the author, was explaining one day that
every man who makes a practice of try
ing to fill a four-card flush is doomed
"Thero is no use talking,'' said Dixon.
"Drawing to a four-flush Is bad busi
ness. I knew an old man down In
Mississippi who lost three plantations
he lost by drawing and never filling the

FEEDING BALKAN FIGHTERS

Borne fine trailing work Is being done in
the Balkans by the newspaper corre
spondents, who were not welcome in the
war with Turkey. With one or two ex

the Turkish army was broken at Klrk

Palmer sends to Collier's an article un
"Feeding the Fighter."
The bread that has gone to strengthen
the bones of the Bulgarian infantry Is
black, hard and whplesome. It Is not
the fine, light food to which we. Dro
accustomed, but it is more nutritious,
Is capable of being kept longer and can
be transported with greater ease. "As
bread had to be baked for the malo
population In time of peace," says tho
writer, "really there were no m-ire
mouths to feed in time of war. Th
males wero simply on the move. This
made more worK only for the vllluiro
ovens and the private ovens In the neigh
borhood of the army. The mutton to go
with the bread went on Its own hoots.
In countries more variously cultivated,

would "llftve clogged the roods.
"The scene, In the station at Stata

OMAHA BIG GRAIN CENTER
January Record Shows that it Now
Surpasses All Fast Predictions.
MANY SHIPMENTS GO SOUTH
Plantations Find Grains from This
Locality Particularly Nourish
ing ii nil Hend Here for
The grain business done in and out of
Omaha during January has convinced
officials and representatives of the
Omaha-Chicago lines that if they are to
remain In tho grain carrying game, they
must form close traffic arrangements
with the present gulf roads, or else the
companies they represent, must build
Into that section of the country, thus
affording them outlets to the new south
During January, according to the report
of the Omaha Oraln exchange, a total
of 6,304 cars of grain came to the Omaha
market. This was divided up as follows:
Wheat, 1,311 cars; corn, 3,030 .cars; oats,
86 cars; rye, 85 cars; barley, 33 cars.
During the same period the shipments ag
gregated 3.NS2 cars. There were 934 cars
of wheat, 1,972 cars of corn, 1,008 cars of
oats, nine enrs of rye and thirty cars of
barley. Of ull the shipments during tho
month, 80 per cent went south, the bal
ance being divided ubout equally between
Chicago and Minneapolis.
What grieves the representatives of
the Omaha-Chlcago-Mlnneapolls lines
most. Is the iact that they get the short
haul on the grain from the cast, and
north and the southern lines get the
long haul of 1.C00 to 1,W0 miles out. This
condition has not only applied during the
last month, but covers the whole of last

This loss of business on the long haul
is where the roads figure on making
their profits, especially where proportion

of the territory tributary to the Omaha
market. In figuring up the grain busi
ness of the Omaha roads, the records
show that qne of the Omaha-Chicago
lines during January brought to Omaha
2,001 cars of grain and was unable to
get but forty-two put. Another road
brought In an even 1,000 cars during the
month, but was unable to secure only ten

Oninha Is Growing: Grain Market,
When tho Omaha grain market was es
tablished nine years ago, railroad men
all laughed at tho Idea of grain from
hero ever moving south. Chicago and
Minneapolis were then tho logical mar
kets to which shipments were sent. It
went to Chicago for reconslgnment and
export, and to Minneapolis for milling.
Nothing went south until some three
years later. Then the roods running tn
that direction and having southern con
nections commenced to build up the mar
kot, which continued to grow rapidly,
until now, when they aro taking about
four-fifths of the Omaha shipments,
which come here from Nebraska, Colo
rado, Wyoming, South Dakota and Iowa.
Both railroad nnd grain men contend
that the southern market for tho fall
wheat of this central went Is naturally
to the south and that It Is bound to ex
pand as the years pass.
Want Omaha Wheat.
Two months ago the wheat sent south
was for export through gulf ports, but
now the greater portion going thore Is
for milling purposes and feed. The south
has discovered that the wheat from the
Omaha territory makes the best flour In
tho world nnd they are bound to have It.

Owing to the rapid development ot tht
south, that section of thjucountry an- '
able to raise sufficient grain for home p
consumption, and looking about for the ,7
supply has found by scientific tests that
the coarse grain of the Missouri river' i
countries contains more flesh producing i
properties than that grown elsewhere. ;
This being true, Omaha grain men feel
confident that for all time to coma tha ;

the grain of the Missouri valley, and that n.

point where the grain will be gathered n,
nnd from which It will be shipped.
