When I first got my 96 mini, I had a similar problem. The problem went away when I did a complete rear brake job including cleaning and lubing the star wheels and threads with graphite, and spinning them up and down the threads to insure they were free of any binding or roughness.

As mentioned, the E-brake self adjusts by operating the E-Brake pedal a few times (push, release, push, release, push....). Eventually the the E-brake pedal will only have a couple of inches of downward play before the rear brakes lock solid to the drums when the pedal is depressed.
