From June 30, 1893, to June 30, 1894, Montgomery County had coal mines operating which employed 40 miners in the summer months and 9 other employees in the summer. No employees were reported for the winter months. 12,175 tons of coal were mined at a value of $1.35 per ton.

Montgomery is one of the close counties in the state politically and frequently elect a mixed ticket. If the report given by a citizen of that county is true it is not the fact of a growing independence among voters that makes it so, as much as it is that dollars count in an election in that county. E. Brown of Mineola told a newspaper man that boodlers hold the balance of power in that county. That it is said that there are fifty votes in Montgomery City and some in every precinct in the county that are for sale. The price of votes went up to $20 at Mineola and it is said that $25 was made at Montgomery, according to Mr. Brown, at the last election.
