miners and operators reached an agreement
this afternoon after one of the liveliest ses
sions since the Joint conference svstem of
fixing a wage scale was adopted. The de

Northern Illinois were contending were

miner concessions on the part of the oper
ators quickly brought, about an adjustment
of the existing differences.
Considerable dissatisfaction Is expressed
by the miners, who were holding for what
they considered an equitable scale of wages
in their districts, and It Is apparent that
the questions that came so near resulting
In a disagreement In the, present conference
will figure extensively In the conference one
Under the agreement reached a 6-cent
Increase is made In every working field in
the State. Tills is the Increase agreed upon
at the national convention recently held at
Indianapolis for he Danville district, the
basing point for 'Ihe Illinois scale.
The result of the 6-cent Increase varies
extensively in different parts of the State
and this Is the reason for a demand on
the part of the miners for a change lb
the differential. It Is estimated that the
6 cents a ton increase will net miners In
some portions of the State an Increase of SO
to 60 cents a day In their wages, while In
the thln-veln fields of Northern Illinois
the Increase will amount to only 13 or 20
cents a day for each man, because of the
lesser amount of coal that can be mined
in the thln-veln fields.
The operators conceded the 10 cents a keg
Increase they demanded In the price of pow
der. Under the resolutions forming a part
of the agreement it is provided that the
miners shall purchase their powder from
the operators, provided It is furnished of
standard grade and quality. Last year the
powder price was fixed at 11.75 a keg. Since
that agreement becamo effective the price
of powder has been Increased and the op
erators demanded that' the' price for the
coming year be fixed at U.S3 a keg. After
conceding 'the points on the Williamson
County and Northern thln-veln scale, the
miners put It up to the 'operators to leave

WAR ON INJUNCTION
MAY BEGIN MONDAY
Lawyers for Wabash Trainmen
and Fiiumcn Hare Almost Com
pleted the 1'etitiou.
PREPARING FOR HARD FIGHT.
Points Imolved in .Tudge Adams's
Decree of Great Interest to
.Members of the Le-
It is confidently expected that the peti
tion for the'dlssol'vement of the Injunction
against the committees of the Wabash
trainmen and firemen will be filed to-mor-rovv.
Considerable progress has been made by
the attornej t and. to quote one of them,
"We begin to see our nay at last."
The fact that tbe law ers have taken so,
long In preparing a petition for the dls'olv
ment of the Injunction Is said to presage .1
hard and carefully prepared fight for a
"We erpec.t to prove," said one of the
leaders, "that over half of the statements
contained In the bill of allegations, on
which the decree was granted, are utterly
"We realize that the Injunction must be
dissolved, else It will work considerable Injur-
to the interests of organized labor: In
fact, take away one of Its main weapons
of defense. '
"In what other peaceful way could we en
force our lust commands If we are forbid
den to quit work in a body?
"It Is claimed by the Wabash officials th-it
the injunction does not prohibit any of its
employes leaving the tcrvlce whenever they
desire. That Is quite true, but If only a few
men drop on at a time nothing is gained to
the rest of the. men. becauhe a few va
cancies can be filled more or less easily,
while many vacancies would render our de
mands at least worthy of more considera
tion. "We are against strikes. It costs us more
than we can afford to strike, but we believe
our demands are Just, and until some bet
ter way is found 1 know of nfl better way
to enforce them than hy striking"
In Interviews with several St. Louis law
yers mest of them cited the opinion of
Judge Jenkins of Chicago, who rendered an
injunction .almost as sweeping against tbe
leaders In the Northern Pacific strike.
This was carried to Juttlce Hatlan of thf
Supreme Court, who. In substance, con
