AS TO U. M. W. METHODS
Declared to Be Demoralizing to the
Point of Justifying
Washington, Nov. 13. The anthra
cite mine operators in their reply to
President Mitchell, of the U. M. W.,
make some wild allegations as to tlie
methods of the organization, which
are on a par with President Baer's
statement before President Roosevelt
on the occasion of the original hear
ing. Regarding the declaration of the
miners that lalor unions improve the
morals and discipline of their members
this comment is made:
"This may be true when applied to
some organizations, but when applied
to the miners union we enter a most
emphatic denial, and propose to intro
duce evidence showing that prior to
the advent of the United Mine Work
ers of America it was considered bad
form to kill or main a citizen who at
tempted to exercise his constitutional
right to sell his labor, and that the
vast munltcr of brutal murders and
beatings: during the past five months
show that tli? teachings of the United
Mine Workers has brought about such
moral obliquity that its members be
lieved themselves justified in these
acts; also that officers of the union
justified this i-ourse by furnishing bail
and counsel for those who have been
guilty of these atrocious acts.
"We believe we will be able to prove
such tremendous losses of life and
money as the direct results of the
methods of this particular uuion as to
convince your honorable commission
that it is inexpedient to do any act
which may contribute to its continued

headed by lohii W. Gates and .lohn A.
Drake is at an end, and it is generally
understood that the western men
have been badly beaten.
The selling of the 20.000 shares of
stock by Messrs. dates and Drake led
to a rejxirt that the Moure Brothers,
who are said to be the largest owners
of Chicago & Northwestern outside
the Vanderbilt interests, had sold out
their entire holdings to Mr. Vander
bilt. This report caused the common
stock of the Rock Islam railroad to
decline from 40't to 41, adding to
the market demoralization, but em
phatic denials at the First National
bank. New York, of the truth of the
story caused it to rally quickly to 411.
It is said that the Moore interests
will retain all their stock in the Chi
cago & Northwestern, and will here
after work in harmony with William
K. Vanderbilt. The announcement of
the settlement of the Chicago
Northwestern railroad light was re
