The United Mine Workers baa always
been a more conservative oirganizatioa
than the1, kindred organization, the

the Industrial Workers of 'the World
in ths western ' mining eamis where
strikes were precipitated by the I. W.

comer mine of Montana and Arizoua.
While -it baa been evident, since the

hold in thai United Mine Workers, the
hold waa a firm one and' it is believed
by conservative leaders in the conven
