THE COAL STRIKE.
It would bo pardonablo in Re
publicans to think, "An oncmy
hath dono this," regarding tho
great striko of oonl minors.
Whether or nol tho now tariff has
that in itself to mako bottor timos
than tho Wilson tariff it is not
necessary hero to discuss. What
is certain is that any settlumont
of tho tariff for four years will
produco n vnt improvement in
coudiliouo uwr tho existing un
settled state of affairs. If tho cur
rency question could also be com
posed, at a reasonably early pe
riod, so much the bottor. Hut just
as tho tariff is approaching settle
ment, and business pricking np its
ears in hope at tho prospect, that
most important element of all in
dustry tho fuel supply has to
be tremendously curtailed by a
strike of miners all through tho
prinoipal coal regions of the
country. This is an event that
showa a compulsory system of ar
bitration for settling all labor dis
putes is more urgently needed than
treaties of arbitration between tho
United Statos and other nations
especially a najion that there bus
never been auy great tumble in
getting to agree upon the nrbi
trnting of international dis
putes. Possibilities of financial
loss, amounting iu mauy cases to
disaster, from this coal strike are
simply incalculable, and at latest
accounts tho movement was grow
ing npidly moro formidable. The
diiy beforo tho mill left the Const
500 strikers wore rampaging
among tho mines of a Pennsyl
vania district forcing tho wrk
mon to come nut, while a thou
sand more men quit work in
Missouri. Public tntuquillity ia
greatly disturbed and all tho talk
is of troops t-) prmorve the peuco,
while as a single instance, among
hundreds that will soon be re
puted, of damage away from the
coal regions is tho shutting down
of the Chicago sugar refinery.
Thoro are presumably high au
thorities for tho opinion that tho
strikers are sure to win tho strug
gle, but jt will tnko tho ddt'eicnoo
of piy for a long time to mako up
for what they and their families
inso during tho strike, and that
without auy ussurauco that,
about tho tiuio they catch up, tho
proprietors will not deem it about
time to try u equueze upon them
which would precipitate a ro
ewal of tho destructive contest.
Senator Pottigrew lately pre
sented to the United States Senate
a statomout, prepared by himself,
of Japan's reasons for adopting
the gold standard. According to
it the change was one in the in
terests of the creditor classes of
Japan, whose power had been
greatly enhanced by conditions
arising out of tho war with China.
One of the controlling features
was a rieo of 30 per cent in prices.
The situation was in mauy res
pocts similar, Senator Pottigrew
says, to that which iuduccd Gor
mauy, England and the United
States to adopt the gold
standard. His conclusion is that
Japan's action would cause a
fuither appreciation of gold, with
a corresponding decline of silver,
and throw manufacturing ad
vantages hitherto held by Japan
to China. All this remains to be
seen. In the meantirao Japan
would appear, to impartial oulsidu
view, to havo taken the safe side
iu coming off n silver basis until
international bimetallism can be
