stated :
"Criticism is behijr freely offered in

creasing tuxes ; all of which is true.
but It is only half the truth. These

PRESENT PAY SCALE
ASKEOHINERS
Union Committee Demands
Maintenance of 'Existing
Basie Wage Schedules
OPPOSES ANY REDUCTION
Indianapolis. Feb. 14. Thc Wage
Scale Committee, reporting te the
special convention of the United Mine
Workers of America here today, de
clared In the meat emphatic manner Its
opposition te any reduction In the pay
of miners and demanded thnt the pres
ent basic wage schedules be maintained.
Theemtnlttee recommended that thc
convention ratify thcdemands of thc
nnthrnclU miners for nv20 per cent In
crease In tonnage rata nnd a $1 n dav
Increase for day men. It nlse declared
for adjustment of "unequal differen
tials," which would result in small In
creases In various fields.
Other recommendations were that all
new agreements be based upon tin
eight-hour day under ground with time
and one-half for overtime nnd for Sun
days nnd holidays; thnt weekly pay
da. s be Instituted; that the practice of
fining miners for certain brcache.s of
contracts be eliminated nnd that" the
soft coal wage agreement be made for
two years extending from April 1 next.
The committee lu mnkliig thc demand
for retention of thc present basic
wages, said a re'ductlen would lower
the standard of living nmeng nil miners
and cnuse poverty nnd suffering
throughout the cenl fields.
Living Wage Demanded
"We held," says the committee's re
port, "that the mine workers employed
in nnd nreund the coal mines of thc
American continent nre entitled te re
ceive ns compensation for labor per
formed an nnnual Income sufficient te
maintain themselves and their families
decently, comfeitably nnd In accordance
with the American Btnndard of living.
The dictates of humanity, public inter
est nnd public welfare demand this be
made 'the preferred claim upon the in
dustry. , ,,, ,
"We de net believe thc public nsks
thnt its fuel needs be supplied nt thc
expense of n degraded citizenship, ac
companied by human misery, starvation
and want, superinduced by Inadequate
annual earnings paid te these who mine
coal. The cost in sacrifice and human
wretchedness Is tee great.
"Mining is n hazardous occupation.
Men engaged in underground toil work
under conditions carrying with them nn
intense nervous strain, superinduced
by the constant and countless injuries
and fatalities which occur, and under
atmospheric conditions which sap then
vitality and make them victims of occu
pational diseases."
Alllance Again Deferred
Anthracite and bituminous miners
will net form nn alliance te threaten a
complete tie-up of the national coal
industry In the event that either side
is unsuccessful in negotiating a new
agreement with the operators.
Conditions arc se different in each
field that the national chieftains of the
union nnd the heads of the various dis
trict organizations have concluded that
the present is net thc oppeitunc time of
using the threat of the nntlenal tie-up
of the coal industry a one of the
weapons of defense.
