UNION. MINERS O
IN
Announced PurpQse to Iemain Idle
Until Demanfds are Met. Non-Union
Workers May Join in Strike.
Indianapolis, March 31.-Coal pro
duction, was stopped tonight by the
union miners, who quit thoir day's
work in the mines of 20 states with the
avowed policy of remaining idle in
definitely in an effort to force the op-.
orators to accept the miners' terms
for new wage contracts.
Olicials at the headquarters here
of the United Mine workerb of' Ameri
ca declared the suspension would not
only include a 'half million workers
but also at least 100,000 non-union
mien would join in the. walk out. No
last in mute instructions were Issued
from 'headqurters and the only Sig
nificant conference held during tle
day by President John L. Lewis was
with Lonnie Jackson, president of the
Kentucky union district, where 5,000
tnion men will continue at work 'be
cause their contract -with operators
has another year to run.
During the day Mr. -Lewis declared
the sua:,ension of work by Kansas
finion miners 'would not be averted by
tlthe action of the Kansas industrial
court ordering that wage scales of the
last two years be continued for 30
days. In a formal statement tonight
the union chief .declare'd the nation
wide walkout would Aoceit "hundreds
of thousands of citizens" not. directly
engaged in the 'coal industry, and he
V161tera-ted his charge that the opera
tors had forced "the strike upon the
niners." -
In addition to the Kentucky miner,
union men in Nova Scotia will remain
at work but those in the Western Ca
nadian provinces wer'e expected to
Join the suspension. The conference
over the 'Kentucky sttuation wassaid
by its .prticibants to have been a gen
oral review Of the ituation there with
President Lewis taking the position
that the union must obey its contract
with the operators.
Numerous reports from the coal
fields of tho country also reached
headbquhrters, which Mr. Lewis declar
ed indicated 'a- cothplete tie up of all
union fields. Those reports Iso show
ed that 13,0000 union men ould be
left in the mines to protect the prop
erty fropn damage and the only trouble
between operators and miners"in this
connection .was reported from Wash
ington where operators -were said to
be obiecting to <paying the wages pro
vided for in the contracts that eo
l)ired\ at midnight.
IMr. ILewis' formal statement regard
in'g the suspenkoin of work follows:
"The' strike u-pon Which the United
Mine Worleors of America 'e enter
Ing is not a lue'itign of smoll magni
tude nor. one to be lightly considered
by the American people. \Tt is fraught
with far eaching conscieionces and
serious responsibilities as acecting

of the countrr fonstitujes a serious
problem. -Aside'fromAhe inevitable
