MAY MAIIK A POLICY.
Wasiiinoton, Nov. 25. President Wil
son named to-d ly a commission of three
composed of Se'li Iow of New York,
Charles W. Mills of Philadelphia and Pat
rick tSllday of Cletrtleld. Pa., a miner, to
deal with tha Colorado coal strike The
aliiU'Uiicemeiit was accompanied by a
statement from the President In which
he expressed disappointment that the
mine operators had i ejected his proposals
hiretofore made for the stltleincnt of tlx
The President sas he does not feel like
withdrawing the troops from the scene of
the disturbance without making some
effort to bring about an amicable settle
ment, and he lias accoidliiKly named the
commission to deal with the situation.
The President took this course without
consultation with thv operative. The
fThe strike of the miners In Colorado,
which has now lasted twelve months, has
attracted the attention of the whole coun
try and has been accompanied by many
distressing and tragical circumstances.
The mediation of the tiovernmvlit of thn
I'nlted Suites was offered early In the
struggle, but the operators of the mini's
were unwilling to avail themselves of !t
or to act upon the suggestions made In
the interest of peace by representatives of
the Department of I-aoor authorized by
statute to servo In such capacity
"It became iiecrss.it y to send Federal
troops to the district affictisl by the strike
in order to pri servo the peace, but the'r
presence could of Itself accomplish noth
ing altlrmatlve. After long waiting,
therefore, and the disappointment of many
hopes of accommodation, I ventured after
taking conns, I with representatives of the
Government who had been on the field
and made themselves thoroughly fauililir
with all the conditions of the .ase, t
propose a plan of temporary settlement,
, be put Into operation for a period of
three years and to arlord means of
amicable consultation and adjustment b
tween the mine operators and their em
plovees pending agreement upon such
terms and arrangements as might be made
the basis for permanently satisfactory re
lations between thun.
ns Plan s.,.pmr, rule.
"The plan seemed to me obviouslv fair
anil scumble The str king miners promptly
at epted it. lut the mine operators re
Jc'ted it. saving in response to my isimest
appeal that the objected to Its most es
sential featuie.s, namely the proposed ar
rangement by which the inlntrs might
state their grievances through a cminittee
and by which differences might be settled
bv reference lo a comtnl.ss.on appointed
bj the President of the I 'ill toil States.
"I think th countrv regretted their ile
clsloti ami was disappointed that tliey
should have t.ikni so uncompromising a
position. I have waited and hoped for a
change In their attitude, but now fear
that there will be none. And ct I .lo
not feel that I am at liberty to do nothing
In the pri'eence of circumstances so seri
ous and distressing.
"Merely to withdraw' the Federal troops
and leave the, situation to clear nnd settle
Itself would seem to mo to lie doing some
thing less than my duty after all that
has neourtod. 1 have therefore determined
to appoint the cimiiulsioii contemplated
In the plan of temporary settlement not
withstanding the rejection of that plan by
the mire operators and thus at least lo
create the instrument. ilitv hy wluii liko
troubles and disputes ma lie amicably
and honorablv settled in the future. In
the hope, the very earnest and sincere
hope, that boh parties may ece it to be
not merely to their own best Interest, hut
also a duty which thev owe to the com
munities they serve, ann to the nation
itself, to make use, of this Instrumentality
of peace and render strife of the kind
which has threatened the order and prnn
perlty of the great State of Colorado a
thing of the past, impossible of repetition
so long as everythlnr that is done is done
in good temper and with the genuine pur
pose to do justice and observe every pub
lic as well as every private obligation,
Prnlse fur ppointees.
"The Hon Seth Mw of New York. Mr.
CharliH W. Mills of Philadelphia nnd Mr.
Patrick tillday of Clearlleld, Pa., have
most generously and iinselllshlv consented,
nt my reipiest, to serve as members of the
commission. I owe to these gentlemen my
own warm 'hanks not mdv, lint also, I be.
Ileve, the thanks of their fellowcitizens
throughout tlie country '
"They will place themselves at the ser
vice alike of the miners and the opera

early lu October, when he became Im
pressed with the necessity of bringing
the greatest possible force to bear to
support the Allies' northern Hank, with
n view to outltanklng the enemy and
compelling him to evacuate his posi

had been weakened b) continued
abortive, futile attacks. After paying a
tribute to the effective cooperation of
(ien. Joffre and his staff (Son. French
"The great battle may be said to have
commenced, mi OcioIkt ii when (ien.

the teachlrgs of the great master, namely
that Herman leaders must know how to
hllllct a decisive defeat even with In
ferior numbers. The victor of Tannenburg
holds good In Poland what lie promised
In Hast Prussia, and In his advance to
the Vistula, his retirement to the frontier
anil by his new blow at the slowly follow
ing enemy Ile h.i' always remained
master of the situation. The Herman na

Hotlvitles at sea, especially the sink

The loss of the Itrltlsli battleship

faivion. No matter what was th
