Thc Press Comniiilce of V;iuie
Miners' Union .desires to make the
following report to"the press:
On October 13th a committee was
appointed to investigate certain
charges niah.-by IV. M. Dicken, Uren
local presid'.nt, and pub-lii-hed 'by him
in ilu press, Tlu committee met and
spaiil many hours maT-iiig. tlu inves-'
t ij-o-tiou. District President Sherman, W. M. Dicken and thc local secretary, Thos. P.iggs, were called before the committee and closely questioned at 'some length, every opportunity being given \V. Jl. Dicken lo
prow his statements, which he failed
to do.
Tlu loniiniitec reported lo the local union meeting on October 20th, sis
follows:
The report of your committee on
this case is thai we Iiud thai Pro.
W. M. Dicken has violated ilia principles of'our organization, by .publishing his letter in th-* press, and that
we advisr" the local union to suspend
him from all ollicial positions for the
period of six months.
And, further, this committee wishes to say lhat. it has tlu fullest, confidence, in ..i'itricl" President Slier,
maii.^
Upon the report of the investigating committee, it was moved, seconded,  and carried unanimously:
1. That the" report c_e accepted and
filed  for  future   refcrjice.
2. That \V. IU. Dicken stand uiuler
suspended sentence for an indefinite
period.     a '
3. That the action of this local union in (baling with W. M. Dicken be
given  to the press.
i). Tlii.it a vote of confidence b_
place'd in District President Sherman.
Tli' millers of Kernie desires "to see
tlu press give this report the same
wide publicity as it gave to the false
charges made by ex-local President
Dicken.

HEROISM IN THE NAVY
By  llobky  D.    Evans.
Zogi:.aiim draws with a pencil,
And I do'th'.ngs with a pen,        ■    *
And you sit up mi a eoiiiviiig tower
Bossing einht liumlr.d men.
Zojjabiim  takes care  ot his business,
And I tak» care of mine,'
And   yon  take care  of  ten  tliousaml

■*  Zoj-;abiini can  handle  his shadows,
Aiul I  call  handle  my  style,
Ami you can handle a. ten-inch «un

Tb   ' th*.;   111,111   who    has lived  more
stories
'J kaii Zo^abiini or I could invent'.
1  Written    to   Admiral   Kveii-.i by    his
frit nil, Jiiidyaril Kipling.
■ Kvery man' is brave at heart; he
only temporarily looses his ii::rve.
This is Xbi dictum of my experience
with men of all conditions and de-
•rn.es. Tkjiu i.s a distinction, however, between that bravery which a
nuvu displays' in thj performance of
' his duty 'Hiid' luroisin in th; truest
sense. There lire so' many elements
composed in a heroic AetA that it is
almost impossible 10 tell exactly tlw
niuiiiiiiif- of ths word. It is not al-
lo^cth-.r the liiero doinj; of his duty,
■but th. iloinjj of something beyond
his duly, something idariiig, unexpected, and to which lie i.s not bcuiul by
moral or military code, that makes
a, man heroi.. As a jfcn.ral ilnu-*;,
wherever you find simplicity and
common sense in .1 iharacter, tlm re
von will lind the possibility of heroic actiou.
To bring it down to the navy, our
mm are ready .to lx:' heroes every day
of tlie week, but they don't £*et the
ikuiicu. Opportunity comes to tlieiu
just ill ■ the routine of performing
,their- duty. The man who takes his
life in his hands is always an inspiring lijriirii and for every h.:ro who is
luvuorcd there are tell .thousand unknown h.roes, just as valiiini in the
ess.Ha-2 o braver}-, who are never re-
. warded and who never expect reward.
' "Tliu duty oi   1,-iii''- brave i.s  a man's
everlasting duty; resistance to fear,
not absence of fear, will determine
liow much of a man he is. It is llw
exercise of certain gifts that makes
the hero: it is' the man that counts.
The well train.-d man, wheilu-r oi-
fic^r or si'ii'.iiau, who adds ellieicnoy
to force, lias within himself llie basic
- -principle of which lw-roes nrs maxle.
Xow'ainl always, tlie completeness ol
,,victory over fear will be regarded as
heroic, .'lhe man who is really afraid
and vet stands nis ground, ought to
l.e coiiiiui'iiileil, for^ hi has gained a
victory over himself and rcg.iiiu.d his
noriu.tl coiidiiiou'
I'or .his gallant died oi heroism in
this parUculnr class, thu navy department has issued this general ord-
i't recoiniiKiidiug George llreeiuaii,
swiiium,   which  vciw-ls   as   follows:
"In accordance with tlte recoiiuiiBii-

and took pari. in the nsrault, that
carried tlu trench. The department
has aj.so rewarded this deed of luro
ism by a special order setting forth
llu. ollicial account ,.;' his valor, and
awarding h:in a medal of honor and
a prize of oiits hundred dollars.
History does not-record ix liner act
of h.-roisni than that of I.ieiileiianl
Ilobsou in sinking the -Uecriniac in
llu Kan.ingo chaiiael. Hut it was a
risk of his,life that every man in the
American squadron coveted, and they
were n.'.ne tht less heroic that they
could no', have- served. All of the
ollicer.': and my entire crew volunteered on,.the Iowa, but only one seaman
was l-ci'iiircd, aud the i-ucslion of selection was not' an ,easy one when J
had lo consider .nearly six hundred
applications of pretty well drilled
sedineiiATheii, too, I did uot expect
llui expedition would live to tell the
tale, and since these-lives were to*die
sacrificed. I wanted to- chooue a man
\vk.> would die reflecting credit upon
our ship. So I chose a prtty ollicer
who had served under me before, -by
th* name of McLean, and the executive ollicei- took a seaman named
Murr.hy. When informed tlmt I was
.abo-.it lo salience one of tlisni to
death<- in a lew minutes, and upon
inquiry if th.-y still wislud to go in
llu Merriniac, they both smiled :Mtd
said.  "Ves."
McLean tried to buy Murphy's
-.li.incc, which he declined, .ami the
loss of a penny turned the decision in
Murphy's favor. Thin the poor sailor McLean weiiL forward with the
tears stri inning do\yn. his cluck, cry-
ing^br-cniiBE"-li-;—lind—lostnt-chnucc-;to-
i.c kilk-.il, for 110 oiie imagined that
iluy would ever come out of llu affair  alive.
Captain U'iuslow's g allanl.ry in
cutt-'n.- tlu cable at Cicrifuegos was
'in. of llu fnust feats of courage, per-
loniKi-l dining th-e Lite war, when he
wi h h.'s men in opai hpivts deliberately held 011 and cut llu cables uiuler Iir; of Spcnhli iuiantry. Captain
Wiiislow was wounded, and si'veral
intn'wri'j i-hot dead in the boat, but

of a innii who had worked himself into tlu Mind lulow tlu surface of llu-

killed. We could not go ashoa* ' for
his burial, and' decided lo bury linn
at s:.a, aud, contrary to the custom,
llu captain insisted that his hodyib-j
ecnsigii.d to tlu sea in a collin. There-
wete no, screws on board nr

perform the .gruesome task "of nailing'

lurves, to lx;gin with, and, the subse-

the .riiurter'iljek, where the lollin

bvgun wh.n a claiiiorous nois.* fell on

open several in.has. It is, utterly impossible lo describe the consternation
lhat this prolonged cry produced.
Xearly .. hrce huudived. men suddenly*
made oil forward, and it was some
time before o rder was restored and
the uncanny noise was explained to
llu satisfaction' of the crew. The
gasses formed in the collin • were
stronger 'than th-- nails,, and d*-.-*w
them ■ out, making llu terrifying
s,q,ncak. I"-vcii the ollicers lest colijr,
and I shared lluir. dismay.( When the

I was glad, indeed, when we had
■gone far enough to cast llu braly
overl.oaid, and had proceeded cibodt
two hundred yards on our homeward
trip when the crew became panic-
stricken. Tliey dropped tluir oars,
their faces bb-itched with fear, and
