The possibility. If not the proba
bility, that more than 400,000 coal
mine workers, having dependent upon
them directly for their support more
than 2,000,000 people, will on April 1
go out on a strike, presents such an
alarming situation as to direct toward
It the attention of the cntlro nation.
Such n prospect, threatening the very
foundation of the country's Industrial
activities, has never before confronted
the people of the United States.
Pennsylvania, In particular, being
tho most 'important of the thlrty-onu
coal. producing States and Territories,
Is most vitally concerned. It employs
a total of more than 291,000 coa!mln;
workers, which last year produced over
170,000,000 short tons of both soft and
hard con I, with a spot vnino of nearly
1235,000,000. The amount of capital
Invested in this Industry In this one
Stato Is so enormous in the aggregate
as to be estimated In the hundreds of
millions of dollars. Philadelphia, ami
practically all the other north Atlantic
ports, draw n large proportion of their
coal supply from this ono State, not in
cluding the thousands of cities located
between the seaboard and the Alle
gheny mountains. Tho reader can read
ily Imagine somo of the moVe Import
ant consequences to the Industrial,
(ommerclal, business and social life
icsiiltlng from a suspension of mining
operations such as Is threatened. 'Hie
evporleuco during and following the
flo months' strike of the anthracite
mine workers In 1002, which did not In
volve the soft eo.il employees of tho
Stale, Is hut n slight Indication of
tome of the effects to follow an Indus
trial strugglo Involving both the an
thracite and bituminous fields of the
State, as welt as adjoining coul fields.
NO COAI,, NO COMMERCE.
Probably the most direful possibil
ity Is that within two mouths after
such a strike is Inaugurated practical
ly every ton of lou) now In stornge will
Imvo been exhausted, and the country's
Industries will find themselves without
the most essential means for carrying
on production. Hut before that time
lms arrived the public's necessities will
have become so great that tho govern
ment will he forced to interfere and Im
pose peace upon tho contending par
ties. While the coal mines are work
ing to their capacity In view of tho
threatened strike, not enough coal can
ho produced, and there Is not enough
In stnrago to prevent a sudden rise In
prlco soon after. If not before, definite
knowledge Is had of a strike being In
augurated. Without coal the railroads
and steamboats and electric railways
cannot 1p operated, and factories and
mills cannot produce their particular
commodities, resulting In the wheels
of commerce being brought to a standstill.
HOPE FOU AOUi:i:.UENT.
AS regards tho situation in the an
thracite region of Pennsylvania, there
Is still a probability that the secret
conference between representatives of
the hard coal-carrying roads and their
employees, will find a way out, and
thus prevent nnothcr Industrial strug
glo In tho3o three fields, Somo kind
of nn agreement between them before
April 1 Is necessary, because on March
31 tho nward of the Anthracite Coal
Strike. Commission, which was ap
pointed hy President Roosevelt to set
tin tho strike In 1002, is to expire.
With Its expiration goes the hoard of
of conciliation, which the award of
that commission created, and which
has for tho past three years success
fully sottled tho differences arising
between tho mine-workers and their
employers. It this conference falls to
reach an agreement as to tho wages
which aro to prevull In the Industry
after April 1, wo will have piescuted
In tho anthracite region somewhat the
same situation that now confronts the
bituminous coal Industry of the coun
try Tli relative significance which
tho anthracite, Industry presents Is in
dicated by tho fact that the total pro
duction of hard coal exceeds 73,000,000
short tons, with n spot value of near
ly $110,000,000. und In that Industry
hi e employed more than 155,000 mine
workers. UNION HAS Pl'LI. TREASURY
The prebcnt unsettled condition In
the soft coal Industry has been
brought about as n result of what
seems to bo a breaking down of tho
Interstate Joint confeience machinery
which was ro-cstabllshcd In what Is
known us tho central competitive soft
coal trriltory following the strike In
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia,
vvostern Pennsyvanla and adjoining
States In 1807. Tho strike at that
time, which was tho last Important
one affecting tho central competitive
territory, Involved 100,000 mine work
ers for six weeks It was conducted
to it partly successful termination by
the United Mine Workers of America,
with a total membership of less than
10,000 and with what was practically
a bankrupt treasury. Today the same
organization has a paid-up membership
exceeding 200,000, and with a defense
fund of nearly $3,000,000. Tho Inter
state Joint conference has also failed
to coma to an agreement In what Is
known as the southwestern territory,
Including Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, past ten years to extend Its JurlsdU
Indlan Territory ontl Texas. In which tlon over the West Virginia mine
