Coal is king in this part of.the country and the amount of capital employed, in tak- ing it out of the mountains runs in- to a big figure. A cluster of vil- lages is maintained almost entirely by the industry, and the workmen have, until recently, been.prosperous. They are still in a good position, looking forward' to a resumption, of! the old time activity. But coal-min- j ing is not the sole dependence of the i district.

In a recent speech, Mr. Weir said: ____ "Is there a single man in the country who believes that Mr. Per- ley honestly defeated Mr. Christie four year's ago? There is not a man, Conservative or Liberal, who does not know that Mr. Perley bought the majority which return- ed him at the head of the poll."
