Contracts and other documents were
produced to substantiate tho honest
miner's story, which shows how he hus
been prevented from receiving any re
muneration from his patent and lias
been compelled to spend considerable
money In a hopeless endeavor to have
it brought to public notice. Mr. Butler
"I am a practical miner, but I am now
loading coal for a living in the Conti
nental mines as a result of mistaken
confidence In Senator McDonald. My
experience with him has not been such
as will bear him out In his frequent as
sertions of lute that he Is the 'friend of
the workingmaji.' He has been the
means of depriving me of many months
of fruitful labor and 1 believe him capa
ble of misleading the hopes of others,
Jtutlcr (Ibtiiined a Patent.
'in January, lhJV.i, I secured a patent
ou a mine drill and in October of that
year made a contract with him as presi
dent of the American Safety Lamp and
Aline Supply company to manufacture
the article, and under the agreement
the contract was to hold good unless
notice to the contrary was given by the
company. 1 was to huve, control of the
sules and was to receive 25 per cent,
commission and lit per cent royalty;
the company was to receive $0 for cacli
drill manufactured lu addition to the
60 per cent, of sales' funds.
"1 condemned the first drill made,
which was not 'perfect and workman
like' according to a clause. In our con
tract. .When I wanted to take a drill
into the mines for a practical test, Mr.
McDonald refused me permission un
less I paid for the drill. 1 tried in vari
ous ways to secure a drill for trial but
he put me oft at intervals of weeks und
months until I was heartily discour
aged. Finally it was suggested that
the sales privilege be given to n certain
machinery supply firm in tills city. I
consented and signed a contract giv
ing the sales firm 25 per cent, and re
serving 5 per cent, for myself. After
signing the contract I was refused a
copy und have not ohtulned one since. -
"A few months ugo .Mr. McDonald
agreed to reliiuiulsh his company's In

to interest themselves iu tho matter. T
spent considerable money und time in
doing this and then Mr. McDonald re
