It's hard to say who is responsible

The initers iay have been justilled

TIEi COAL ST11KE.
The nation is face to face -with the
most serious situation which it has
had before it in iany a lay. Whole
sale stollpage of the nation's indus
ries. with the accompanying priva
tions aitdl monetary losses, is about to
tak(e place if the coal miners persist
in their strike which the president,
the attorney geieral and the coirts
have said is a violation of the law.
The issues in t coal strike are mo
mentous. Not ine r0ly heraii se it is a
coal Strike and a lar Ige strike, but lbe
caluse of the tivans 'which it has been
foild li necessa ry to elurb it. Thlie m in
'rs set ilte dale of thel' strike at tile he
ginning of winter. when the life of the
nation depiendei upon its fiel supply.
The factories could stop running in
sunmmer as well as in winter, but in
winter the masses of people in cities
must h! ve coal for warmth. TPhe min
ers brazenly set about to hold up ti le
nation by frightening It into suibmis
sion. 'ltey figured that the public,
taught oil every occasion to mistrust
and abuse big business, would come
to their side and leave the employers
to fight their battle alone. The public
so far has not sympathized .with the
miners, and the government, meeting
the issue as a national peril, has le
clared the strike illegal and has se
enredl an injllnetion against officers of
unions directing the strike.
The issue has cone to be squarely
between the miners' union and the
government. The government has
thrown down the gaunt let andl de
mands to be supreme and the miners
may take it lip. If they do, fle fight
will likely be t bittor one and may
spread to other labor unions. What
ever the case, the people and the pib
lie should stand behind the govern
ment, for a victory of the miners now
would mean another link hammered
nito the Iloishevik chain and the gov
ernment brought that mnuch nearer to
Keeping the lcordi St raighit.
