A. J. Cook, secretary of the Miners' Federation, said last night that the situation could not be worse and that the only relief lay in an appeal to the government, which he yvas asking to bring pressure to, bear. MJncrs Bitter The South Wales miners are re porttd -to be in a-ver-y bitter mood and determined not to budge from their position. In Its essence the dis agreement between them and the mine owners simmers around the question of yvho is going to bear the costs of reducing the miners' work ing hours from eight to seven and one-half hours daily. The owners say that they can not bear the entire cost of reducing the number of hours of employment and the miners say they can not subsist on the. reduced wages which the ow ne rs declare must accompany shortened work hours. All Working Now All the collieries were working today but in some districts tnore were preparations for a walkout to morrow. At all points, however, tlie "safety crews," decided to remain on ihe job. Meanwhile, the secretary of the union has been using all his influ ence to induce, the ministry of mines to mediate, but Emmanuel Shin well, secretary for mines, is onder stood to have indicated that the sit uation was so difficult that he was unable to take any action for the prese nt. Executives of the union were to meet in Cardiff this afternoon to consider any new offers by the owners but there was no arrange? nient for a meeting of both owners and miners.

Riegel, president of the Con sumers Guibl of Ame-rica and mem ber of the Crain committee, urged that the district, attorney be "ex--pelled from office."

After organizing his committee with prominent citizens as "window dressing" Crain produced for ques tioning as alleged racketeers, three men who seemed "quite innocent and decent looking," Rieg. 1 declar ed, and later announced the rack eteers were being frightened out of the city. Riegei declared Crain sought to delude the public into thinking lie was seriously lighting racketeering and to frighten citizens from enter ing the. fight by emphasizing the dangers facing witnesses.
