Some Interesting Facts Devel-
oped at the Trial of
John Richards.
By Exclusive Wire Irom The Associated Tress.
Charleston, W. Va., July 29. One of
the points which was brought out in
the trial of John Richards and others
in the federal court here belore Judge
Keller, today. Is that Richards threat
ened to blacklist all miners who re
fused to come out and join the strik
ers. When Richards was speaking to
a crowd and the working miners were
listening, ho turned to the working
mineis and pleaded with them to quit
work and said that when the strike
was over und the union had been rec
ognized, which Itsurely would be, they
would not be able to work In any sec
tion of the country. He told them ho
had a list of all their names and it
would be furnished to every local union
in the country, and wherever they went
they- would be pointed to as "scabs"
and would not be allowed to curn a
This point was emphasized as much
as the prosecution could emphasize It,
so that It could be shown to the court
that the organization which is opposed
to a blacklist by the employer proposes
to maintain a blacklist among those of
Its craft. The speech was taken by
the stenographer of the Collins Colliery
company, and the transcript was sub
mitted in the court toduv.
The men employed In tho mines tes
tified they were afraid to work on ac
count of the gathering of the strikers,
and while tho speakers counselled obe
dience to the law, it was shown they
continued to gather in large crowds "in
the vicinity of the colliery and asserted
they would slay there until the men
came out of the mines.
The prosecution brought out evidence
today to show that checks to purchase
food were s-ent here by Secretary Wil
son and John Mitchell.
The prosecution has closed its case
and the defense will open tomorrow.

Colonial Secretary Outlines Govern
ment's Policy Towards South Afri
can Colonies Surrender Promises
to Be Kept in Spirit as Well as in
Letter Mines to Be Taxed, but
Owners Not to Be Punished.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
London, July 29. Colonial Secretary
Chamberlain appeared in the house of'
commons this afternon for the llrst
time since the recent accident in which
lie was hurt. He wus greeted with
hearty cheering, and later lie was
Warmly congratulated by Sir Henry
Cnmpbell-Bannennan, Liberal leader
in the house.
Sir Henry Campbell-Banncrman sup
plemented his congratulations by ask
ing for information of the colonial con
ference. He expressed the hope that
lenient treatment would be extended to
the boers In South Africa.
Mr. Chajmberluln replied that the one
fiphit animating the members of the
conference was the desire to draw
closer together the constituent parts of
the empire, and he thought it safe to
sdy that the conference had made Im
portant progress toward a perfect
union, to which he himself looked for
ward. Regarding South Africa, Lord Mll
ner, the high commissioner of South
Africa, had telegraphed spontaneously
that he did not think further legisla
tion necessary to make the banishment
pioclamatlon effective. The govern
ment, however, reserved to itself the
important right in the new colonies to
refuse to allow the return of or to
keep watch over persons who showed
themselves inimical to good order and
"We are not going to allow tho result
of the war to be undermined," said
Mr. Chamberlain, "by intrigues carried
on by" nominally constitutional means.''
Regarding the future status of South
Africa, the colonial secretary said the
imperial government has established a
crown colony in the strictest sense.
Tho next step would be to add a
Humiliated official element. Thereafter
there would be an elected official ele
ment and then nothing but circum
stances and time would separate the
new colonies from full self-government,
the ultimate goal of their ambition.
That consummation would not be de
layed; If for no other reason, because
It might relievo the government of the
tremendous burden of responsibility In
volved In the present situation, but all
must understand that the government
would not be rushed or hustled Into
any action which circumstances did not
Promises Will Be Kept.
The speaker said he was one of these
optimistic enough to believe that the
new colonies would reach the ultimate
goal of their ambition much sooner
than many persons thought possible.
So far as the government was concern
ed, the surrender promises would be
kept In spirit as well as In letter. The
government was bound both by honor
and by Interest to that course.
There remained many questions to be
dealt with; a new tariff must be ar
ranged Involving Intricate questions,
concerning which experts must be con
sulted und the taxation of mines must
be settled, but he wished to say noth
ing would be done to punish owners of
mines us had been suggested In many
quarters. The government would do
nothing to Intel fere with a quick revival
of development of the country ,
Subject to that consideration, Mr.
Chamberlain continued, no man was
mure anxious than he to recover some
considerable part of the cost of the
war from South Africa. He thought It
would be perfectly fair to lay a fair
part of the cost of the war on tho
principal Industry of tho Transvaal,
but what amount It was too soon to

By Exclusive Wire from Tho Associated Prcst.
London, July 29. The latest and most
reliable Information indicates that
King Edward's doctors were not mis
taken in fixing August 9 as the date
upon which his majesty could bo
crowned. The sinister rumors which
have pervaded all classes for the last
few days now appear to have lost that
semblance of probability which made
even the members of the cabinet ner
vous lest another postponement of the
coronation might be necessitated.
Th apprehension that King Edward
would be unable to stand the strain
of the coronation ceremony has been
greatly lessened by the announcement
Mhat his majesty Is now permitted to
use his feet and, with the aid of a
stick has done a little walking. An
other late telegram from Cowes, Isle
of Wight, saying that nearly all the
restrictions up.on the king's diet have
been withdrawn, haB been welcomed as
evidence that the recent ominous de
ductions were drawn without due al
lowance for the doctors' extreme cau
tiousness. While ,the king was test
ing his ability to walk, two stalwart
jackles stood at his side. After this
experiment, which boded well for his
fulfilling the necessary coronation func
tions at Westminster abbey. King Ed
ward 'sat smoklngi on the .deck of the
royal yacht, and .watched -the races of
the fcmall yachts off Cowes.

fact that the invitations to Westmins
ter abbey were not dated have had
their fears dissipated by the proclama
tion, published In t:.e Gazette tonight,
fixing August D as. the date for the
coronation, which post dates, and is
altogether more important than any
thing which might or might not hav
