STAUNTON STAR-TIMES, Staunton, Macoupin Co, IL, Thurs 10 Aug 1917 page 1 col 2


The miners of Mines Nos. 7 and 14 of Staunton and No. 15 of Mt. Olive, all 3 properties belonging to the Consolidated Coal Co., held a mass meeting at the Labor Temple Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The men from Mt. Olive failed to get a special car over the I. T. S. so they walked to our city and it was quite an imposing parade, which wended its way through Main Street. Credit must be given that all conducted themselves as gentlemen. No vulgar or obscene language could be heard or the least disturbance noticed. The attendance at the Labor Temple was also harmonious and the issues of the day were thoroughly discussed, still we can not go into any details as the transactions concern only the miners and are kept secret. As soon as results are obtained we will make proper announcement in these columns.
