Continued from First Page.
At the conclusion of the first 'confer
ence Mitchell walked over to the
treasury department, where for two
hours he remained closeted with Frank
P. Sargent, commissioner of immigra
tion, in the latter's office. During that
time Mitchell communicated by long
distance telephone with persons In
New York and in Wilkesbarre. Com
missioner Sargent has been an impor
tant factor in the efforts made by
President Boosevelt to effect a settle
ment of the contrqversy between the
miners and the operators and there
fore was in position to talk , frankly
with Mitchell. Their conference was
as earnest as It was long.
It is believed that at Its conclusion
Mitchell had formulated a statement
akin to a counter proposition to that
made by the operators. This be later
presented to the president, gojng di
rectly from Sargent's office to the
White House for that purpose. While
no authorized statement of the coun
ter proposition could be obtained it
can be stated on excellent authority
that Mitchell, In criticism of the proio
sition of the operators, took exception
to the disparagement of the miners'
union and to the limitation of the time
in which, under the proposed agree
ment, there is to be no strike that is
His particular objection, however,
was to the insistence of the mine own
ers that they should be permitted to
designate the classes from which the
arbitrators Fhould be drawn by the
president. It Is understood that he
took a firm stand against this propo
sition, saying he was satisfied the min
ers would not submit to any arbitra
tion which would not be arbitration
Lu fact as well as In name. He urced
that this would not be the case If one
side to the controversy were afforded
the advantage of naming the classes
from which the arbitrators were to be
appointed. He plants himself squarely
on his own proiositlon that the presi
dent should be allowed to name the
arbitrators without any restrictions or
llmibitlons made either by the miners
or by the mine owners.
