He replied that the Dispensary was
getting along nicely and as he thought
in a thoroughly satisfactory manner.
Its management had been in thorough
compliance with the law, and the
house had been kept orderly and quiet
in every respect.

Brazil, Ind., Dec. 7.—A majority of
the miners of the Brazil district of the

is breaking, at least in the Block dis

when they struck that their demands

sufficient funds to live as well dnring

After waitiug five weeks tbeir demands

The miners of the Brazil district have
several times petitioned the executive
board at Terre Haute to call a am
meeting and give all of the miners a
chance to vote on returning to work,
but this was refused them. They now
assert that a meeting will be called
within the next few days for this pur
pose irrespective of the board, and that
if the voice of the meeting is for return
