THK TRUCE BETWEEN cow, OWNERS
AND MINERS?BUL ASQUITH AND THE
ANARCHISTS?Till. RADICALS AND
Till. LORD CHANCBL1-OR.
London, November iv
Whatever may b<> thought of the principle
of Government intel Terence in B labor dis?
pute, everybody rejoices at the success of tbe
conference ,,t coal ownsts and of cai miners
presided over by Lord Rosebery. Fear trouble
themselves to consider what the effect of BUch a
precedent may bc ur what kind of action ii
future Ministry may take in tbs neal jrest
strike. Sufficient fur the day la tbs evil thereof,
and also the good. Ministers are taunted by
their opponents willi hString .lelaycd their inter?
vention till matters had gone BO far that, with or
without th.-ir help. Ute struggle was nearing Its
end. Compromise was in the ali; a settlement
Inevitable. It may be so. The taunt ls rather a
eulogy than a criticism. It is the business of
statesmanship to choose the right moment for
The right man was chosen also. Lord Rose
bery is perhaps the only Minister whom both
sides would have been disposed to accept as
arbitrator. Ile was not arbitrator; hs had no
authority except as |M'ISiding officer over a Con?
ference composed of fourteen on each Fide; he
bad not even a vote. Hut hs has tact, and a
knowledge of men, and familiarity with busi?
ness, and a power of rapidly mastering a sub?
ject. So far as he allowed himself t>> be Influ
enced by sympathies, his sympathies were prob?
ably on the side of the men.
Both parties claim the victory. It is one of
the advantages of a pood compromise that it
allows both parties to claim the victory. Each
gains something, each surrenders something, and
each dwells on What it gains nnd on what the
other surrenders. The men had said they would
never return to work at a reduced wairo, and
they do not. The old rate is to be paid till
February. The masters had refused with energy
to bind themselves to pay a fixed minimum
wage in the future, and they do not bind them?
selves. Tha rate after February 1 is to be
determined by a Hoard of Conciliation, whOSS
decision is to bold good for ;it bust ii yesr.
The principle ,.f arbitration, which the miners
rejected, ls thus affirmed arid adopted. The prin?
ciple, if it can bs (ailed a principle, of tha
"living wage." ls put aside.
? The long struggle turned upon that. The men
and their champions in the press nailed that
flag to the mast. Over and over again "The
Chronicle" proclaimed in its hysterical way that
the men would fight to the death for the living
wage. They have fought, but not to the death,
lind arc beaten, lt units this same paper now
to say that Labor has won a great triumph,
greater than ever before. That paean I.*: sung on
the strength of their return to work with a
pledge of thc old wages for a little more than
two months. But the living wage is BUrrenden d.
lt could hardly be otherwise. Few capitalists
could be found anywhere to agree that they
would pay labor at a fixed minimum late for
all time to come, irrespectively of the price they
obtained for the product of this labor.
The term living wage was a clever invention.
The public were expected to understand it as
meaning the least a miner could live on. The
fact that he had lived on much less was Ignored.
So was the other fact that the average rate
had been for some years higher thnn this mini?
mum, and would have remained higher under
the proposed reduction. So was the third fact
that, If the men earned less, it was became they
did not choose to work more than three or four
days a week. So was the fourth fact that the
sum per week fixed by the miners ?.* the least
they could live on is double, or nenrly so, the
average earned by agricultural laborers all
over the kingdom. The well-meaning ecclesias?
tics who assembled In Jerusalem Chamber to
demand the living wage in the name of religion
and of humanity and nf sentiment, took no ac?
count of these facts. But the public takes
account of them, lt takes acount of the further
fact that neither the miner nor the owner foots
the bill which ls the result of the contest the
two parties carried on for nearly four months.
The consumer pays, as he always does. The
producer calls the tune and the public pays the
Giving the Government every credit for devo?
tion to the public interest, one may nevertheleM
see that politics had something to d I with their
calling of this conference. Lord Rosebery ls one
of their prize young men,?he is forty-four years
of age, which in English politics is mere youth?
fulness. But the other prize young tuan is Mr.
Asquith, who is forty-one It had fallen to Mr.
Asquith's lot, SS Home Secretary, to protect lives
and property by fore- at Festhersto ic and else?
where. The strikers called it taking Bides arith
the owners. It was not, but thc accusation WM
damaging to a Ministry dependent largely upon I
labor votes. To refute it by argument and proof '
was of little avail. It could only be met effect- i
Ively by?not, of course, taking Bides with the
miners, but doing something for them.
Lord Roseberry is known as a friend to the
masses, and to thc laborers. To put him for?
ward as President of the Conference was to
assure the misses that 'he Ministry was a friend
to the masses and to the laborers. The Foreign
Office is the set off to Featherstone, and Lord
Rosebery's smooth wolds to the miners in his
private room, and the luncheon, and finally the
compromise, are to silence the echo of those
rifle shots at Ackton Colliery. Nothing ls more
convenient to a Prims Minister than to be able
to Invest a colleague on each side, and to con?
ciliate friends while considering and truly pro?
moting the public Interest.
The week has not been a go.,d one for Mr. As?
quith. He lins sustained his first Important
check, b'ing beaten for I_ird Hector of Glasgow
University by Sir John Corst, who comes Jn by
some 300 majority. Sir John Gorst, though able,
ls not in the front rank, nor ii very sympathetic
personality. His auccesa is the success of Con?
servative Unionism, as Mr. Asquith's defeat ls
the defeat of Otadstoelan Home Rule and Rad*
Jcaiism. The Universities?even in Scotland,
where the fierce democracy of youth prevails?
sre not the homes of irish Nationalism or of
the Newcastle Programme.
Mr. Asquith is not responsible for this mis?
fortune, but he is responsible for the mist-tke in
Trafalgar Square. He allowed a trier ting of
Anarchists t<> a sse ninia la Um square to denounce
the hanging of the Chicago a SSS Sill IIB and to
canonize the Barcelona assassin who threw a
bomb at Marshal Campos. Then he defended
his action in the jj,ms. of Commons, and the
defence was less defensible than the action.
Mr. Asquith's position In this matter is peculiar.
He threw open Trafalgar Square last year to
the spouters under certain conditions, one of
which was that notice of meetings and their
object should be given in advance to the Home
Office. He does not seem to have perceived that
this made the Government responsible, If they
permitted tbe meeting, for the character of the
But ao lt is, and now Mr. Asquith, who is
usually both firm and sensible, bas no better
excuse to offer for his indiscretion than the
smallness of the meeting. It was not worth
while to make a fuss about a few Anarchists,
he urges; lt gives them too much Importance.
But lt does not take many Anarchists to throw
a bomb, or to incite others to throw bombs.
Would Mr. Asquith allow a meeting called for
the purpose of advocating the murder of the
German Emperor or the Csar? If he would not,
why should he allow a meeting called for the
purpose of glorifying the murder of eltlaens of
Nobody likes to be put publicly in the wrong,

sieged the Lord Chancellor last week and were
repulsed with loss, resent their discomfiture,

leentment which. If natural, la hardly prudent

of the hair on different parts of tbe body. The
next operation was to get the skin off. The i bli f

Notwithstanding the reports that had been
current to tba effect that the BociSllStS here
might att.mpt t.. escort ttv-ir representatives to
the Palais Bourbon on Tuesday last, the opening
,,t Di- Chamber passed off without any incident,
and there was no need to call for the services
either of ths detachment <>r municipal guards
Buttoned in tiie Palais de |* Industrie or for the
police reserves, h.-ld In readiness for an emer?
gency. The most reinarkalde feature of the
occasion was the extraordlanry number of
noblemen ami provincial magnates who took
iheir s-ats foi th.- lirst time as Deputies. At
no time sine* the establishment of the Republic,
nearly f.nir-ar.d-twenty years ago, has the
aristocracy of Prance been so largely rcpre
sented in the Chamber, and all predictions to

landed proprietors aloof from participation in

only at official ceremonies, such aa reviews or
oiler great Btate functions at which it was
rosary that the legislature should be repre?
sented i 'f late, however, a number of Depu?
ties have taken to wearing their sashes and
badgee In a manner certainly not contemplated
when they were lirst Instituted. Thus, in the
recent Strikes in the mining districts "f
Hi" northern departments; Socialist Deputies,
adorned with their parliamentary Insignia.
have actually been seen man bing at the head
..f th" strikers sgainst th.- police and regularly
constituted authorities. Now in Prance the
tricolor sash i.s universally regarded as .a badge
<r administrative and executive power. A police
commissary, for Instance, i- forced t>> doti his
