Rev. Mr. Wines prevented the conference
brmkin up two or three times by appealing
to the conferrees to try again, but there was
no use. The oerators were fixed in their
conclusion that there was no ni iney in mill
ing coal if they pail more than
csmts, and the miners were equally
determined to have 75 cents after

that failure to agree miht and prolMy
would result in serious tiirbul.nv. Hut

adjourned to tight it out.

A I'ublio Meetlna.
A met ting was held last night at Madison
Street theatre at which an address was
promulgated in lhalf of the miners and the
operators were vigorously criticised for not
laying 73 cents after tVL 1. The address
insists that they could do it. while it is
proved, it says,tbat the wages of coal miners
is unsulli. ient for their commonest needs.
In a speech John Mcltride offered to aecrpt
the der ision of I.yman J. tiage on the sub
