Ap proximately llb.uOO men and boys are idle, of which number only one half are in the Lackawanna and Wyoming region. In every instance, Mr. Mitch ell said, the order to suspend opera tions had been obeyed. About 20,000 mine workers are out in th- Lehigh district and aO.Ootj in the Schuylkill field. An official of the Delaware, Lacka wanna v Western Railroad Co. said that that corporation had no inten tion of resorting1 to a lookout. Continuing, ho said: 'AVe do not. in tend to irritate the men. and the other companies are of tho same mind. Nothing will be done after Wednesday. The situation is now in the hands of the miners. After Wednesday it will be in our bands. "Wo appreciate the facts that John Mitchell does not want a strike. .Wither do tho companies, despite Avhat has boon said to the contrary. While Ave do not want a fight, we will give the men all the light they de sire if they decide that there is to be one." From the same o racial source comes the announcement that the Delaware, Lackawanna A' Western company has stopped selling coal. .Not a carload has been shipped since Saturday morning. Any order must now be ap proved by tho head of the coal de partment before being tilled. The other companies have taken similar action, and it is believed a coal fam ine will speedily result if the suspen sion is made permanent on Wednes day.
