STILL IN HOPES 0
AVOIDING A STRIKE.
Anthracite Miners' Officials
Again Delay the Ex
pected Order.
DANGER BY NO MEANS OVER.
Men instructed to Continue
Themselves in Readiness
to Go Out.
Indianapolis. Ind.. Sept. 8. After an all
day secret session the National Executive
Board of the United Mine Workers of
America adjourned to-night at 7 o'clock un
til to-morrow, after issuing a statement
postponing the ordering of a strike pending
the result of negotiations. Officials say In
fluences are at work to adjust the trouble,
but they decline to say what they are.
This action means that the miners of tho
anthracite region will not strike to-morrow,
although tha danger of a strike has
not been removed. The men are ordered to
remain in readiness to go out. Mine workers--
officials refuse to say how far negotia
tions have progressed or by what means
they are being carried on with the opera
tors. At 5 o'clock this afternoon a messago
was sent to District President Nichols, at
Hazleton. Pa., as follows:
"Information reaches this office that
miners in the anthracite region are ceasing
work in anticipation of a strike being de
clared to-day. National Board direct, me
to adv.se that, inasmuch as mgotlations are
still pe.idlng for a settlement, all miners
continue work as usual until they receive
official notice to suspend work and to hold
themselves in tidiness to respond should
our efforts to effect a settlement prove a
failure." . ,
The statement issued by the board re
cites the applications of districts 1. 7 and
9 of the anthracite region to ensaga In a
strike because of a refusal of their era-T-I..W,-
in meet their demand, and, con
tinuing, declares the opposition of tho
United Mine Workers to strikes except as
a last resort, stating that It is the desire
of the organization to adjust all differences,
to far as possible, by arbitration and con
ciliation.
Strikes Arr Like Vim.
"Strikes between labor and cnpltal." the
statement says, are like wars between na
tions; they bring hardships. privation and
want to the workers and loss of profits
to the employers: yet. when Innumerable
wrongs have been heaped upon a people
which thoy have patiently submitted to
for years, using every' honorable means at
their command to remedy the evils com
plained of. without resorting to strikes, and
all their efforts for relief have been arro
gantly refused or silently ignored, they
would be falsa to themselves, their families
and their fellow-r- if they failed to re
sist any further encroachment upon their
rights,, even to the extent of striking for
months If necessary, with all the suffering
It entails, in an effort to remove the evils
for all time to come-thls U the case In the
anthracite region.
Their wages have not kept pace wltn
the cost of living and In some cases have
been reduced. They have been required to
deal In company stores and accept wages
based upon an antiquated sliding scale, that
invariably slides downward; they have had
their wnges reduced by an arbitrary and
exorbitant Fvstem of dockage; they have
been compelled to wait for their pay weeks
after the time specified by law and In open
irinintlnn nt the same, and in many other
1 "- -.-- -
wajB their rights and liberties nave ueen
trampled upon and In many cases they have
been compelled to take their childr-n from
school at a very tender age. In violation rf
la. and put them to work In the breakers
In order to earn nulticicnt food to support
their familUs.
"All of these Impositions have been pa
tiently borne until they are no longer
btarable. TT.ey have sought conference aft
r conference, with their employers, hoping
to meet them and obtain an iimelioratlon
cf their condition. Their appeals have been
Ignored. They have pursued every concelva-
b'e conciliatory method, made numerous
propositions and have offered to submit the
whole situation to arbitration, and all their
efforts have been In vain. They now make
application to this board for permission to
strike. In accordance with the laws of our
union. We greatly deplore the circumstances
which compel us to order a strike in that
Held, but we feel that we have done all
we possibly can to avoid a conflict with
the exception or a slight hope that has not
yet been rollowed to a definite conclusion."
Farther Deluy In E fleeted.
In order that the operators may have a
further opportunity to avert a strike, mat
the Industry and commerce of New England
and Eastern Statee may not be temporarily
stopped and permane.ntlj Injured byan un
necessary steppage of their fuel supplies;
that the many thousands of workers en
gaged In tho.-e Industries and commerce
whese welfare Is Interwoven with the min
ing interests may not jiiffer from causes
over which they have no control, and In
order that they may have time to continue
negotiations along the line Intimated, the
miners in the anthracite tleld are hereby
notified that the Nat'oaal Board do rot j
deem It advisable .o o.der a strike to take ,
effect September 10. s requested uy tne
Kazleton convention, but the m'.nors or the
whole anthracite region are Instructed to
restrain themselves for a few days longer
and hold themselves In leadlnes-- to cease
work immediately upon the ending of the
ninitln? neirntlntions. after which time, in
case a settlement is not reached, an official
ordering or the strike will bn sent out oy
thls board."

ttTI'IllJf SPECIAL
Wllkesbr.rre, t'n., Sept. 8. The anthracite
coal miners await the orders for a general
s'rlke with the knowledge that they are
in a better position for a prolonged siege
r.r Mlnnm then thev have ever been. For
months thev have worked stendilv. and j
th pav Tor August, which they will get
next vveek. will le the largest they have
recrlved In years,
rserrrat enthusiasm prevails, the strike
fev-r Is high and the mm have thorcush
enfidenre In their leaders. They have j
wilted thirteen years ror the time to come ,
when they could, as they declare, Tree ,
themselves rrom the numerous oppressions
which have tied them down.
Now that the time has come they are
eager to make the most of it The asser
tion or the operators that not 10 per cent
or the men favored a strike and that not
more than 2t ppr cent would strike is not
borne out by Investigation. '
Never before in the history of coal mining
have the miners been so thoroughly organ
ized. DItrlct organizations have labored
far into the night, not speech-making, not
oriranizlnc. but enrolling the names of the
thousands who voluntarily applied for ad- j
mission ftiiiu LUC UIUUII.
It Is estimated that since Wednesday 20.
000 men have joined the union, nvny of
tbem from districts which were not ex
pected to favor the strike. The chief vic
tory of the men was In enlisting the miners
In the nonunion plants operated by Messrs.
Mills & Parsons, There In the last two
years the leaders had labored In vain. The
men. conservative old miners or the most
Intelligent class, refused to even listen to
union arguments, yet since Thursday all or
them have joined tho union, some 930 all
told.
In other districts the men have eagerly
sought admission to the ranks and thou
sands more are expected to join to-morraw,

MINERS INDICTMENT
OF THE OPERATORS.
I'riiiii
Address of thf National
lloiinl.
The v.nges of the men have not
kept pace with the cost of living
nnd In some ca-cs have been reduced.
They have been required to deal
In company stores nnd accept wages
based upon an antiquated sllilln;:
scale that invariably slides down
ward. Th.y have had their wages re
duced by an arbitrary and excessive
system of dockage.
Thej have boen compelled to wait
for their pay weeks after the time
perilled by law.
Thev have been compelled to take
their children from school at a tender
age In violation of law and to work
them In the br:iker.s in order to earn
siifficltnt food to support their fam
ilies. when mass meetings will be held at central
points throughout the entire region.
The opirators have Uisrd their hope of
no strike on the fact that many of the, men
do not approve of a strike now.
The dtt.lr to light it out with the com
panies, however, is strong. To-day a boy
at thu Lehigh and Wllkesbarre mine here
struck becau-e he was not promls-ed steady
work. It wis not much of a grievance but
the strike fever was In the air and forty
drivers als-o struck In sympathy. FIe hun
dred men wire thus thrown out of work
for the da. The -trike of the driver and
breaker bos alone would shut down every
collbry In the region and they know It and
want to strike.
How long the strikers will be able to hold
out If the operators continue stubborn Is a
question hard to am-wer. They will have
their big Ausust pay day next week, nnd
about October 12 will get the pay for Uie
een duys already worked this month.
The United Mine Workers' Association of
ficials say they have JTOO.OoO on hand, and
all of this will be used If necessary. The 1U
Hnols mines promise .. and aid is ex
pected from other labor organizations, t-o
that, notwithstanding the efforts of the op
erators to cru-h them and the refusal of any
credit, the strikers feel confident th3t they
can hold out for several months. But It will
be at heavy cost.
It will take over Jt.yo.OOO a month to Keep
the strikers alive, and that Is based only on
MO a month to each of the Hi,0W workmen.
