having to spread over the entire
year, are greatly reduced a* a re
sult of the non-employment exist
ing In that Industry. The high coat
of living has presented Itself in
perhaps a more serious form in Iso

Industrial centers. There Is usually
not the same opportunity for the
miners In the mining campa to make
their purchases to such advantage
as is presented in other localities.
Their isolation prevents this.
Want -Better < -..dlii.n.
The United Mine Workers, in their
convention, held during the month of
September in the city of Cleveland,
adopted a positive declaration de
manding improved conditions of em

There were almost S,M0 delegates

positively and explicitly instructed
their officers that unless an agree

first day of November, ]91!>, thst the
resolution of the convention calling
for a strike on November 1. 1919,

except for the officers, who are
elected by the membership, to cari*v

membership or resign from their
positions as officers, in which event
chaos and confusion would result.

The officers of the mine workers,
with their scale committee, entered
into conferences and discussions
with the operators in the city of
Rullalo. They stated at the confer

negotiate ?n agreement: In other
words, that they had the power to
give und take in the conference.
The employer? refused to mske any

answered th* call of the Secretary
of Ian bor and further endeavored to
reach an agreement, but failed. The
officers then proceeded to carry out
the instructions of their membership
and communicated the results of the
failure of negotiations, and by or
der of the convention tbe strike au
tomatically took effect November I.
The machinery which has existed
for years and which has been suc
cessful' in bringing about agree

operators, still exists and they as
representatives of the miners were

into negotiations without reserva
