Coal Price Must
Not Be Raised
Cabinet's Edict
Miners Declare Offer an Insult and Say
They Will Starve Idle Rather Than Ac
cept-Operators, Too, Are Displeased and
Say That the Present'Price Is Too Small.
Acting under instructions from the Cabinet, United States Fuel
Administrator Garfield last night told the coal miners and the opera
tors that the wage increase should be 14 per cent and that the price
of coal to the public should not be raised. /
This declaration, coming from the government as a basis for
settling the wage controversy was received with great dissatisfaction
by both the miners and the operators.
Call II Iwrnll.
Pome "f the miner*' representa
tive* declared that the offer of a *?
per cent increase In the face of the
fact that Secretary of Labor ^ ?1
?on had offered them ?!.? P?r eat:
an insult. They declared that
the miners would starve Idle rather
than go back to the mines at this
wace increase.
The operators, who have been ex- ]
pectinc that the government would
see them through on any wage In
crease, declared that their margins
would not permit them to give the
miners the 14 per cent out of their
own pockets. They said that It
would break many of the weaker j
mines, and that It meant ruin and
[?the sacrifice of years of earnings)
and savings.
The operators for the most part
bore their disappointment in si
lence. but from the miners came
I denunciation after denunciation of
I the government's offered solution.
Without reservation and without
mincing words the miners ques
tioned Dr. Garfield and through him
grilled the government for more
than two hours.
GaraeU Adaioaot.
Dr Garfield stood ?*an>ant 'i t?ce
of the questions and the criticisms
hurled at him from the miners' side
of the hall. He answered all ques
tions without betraying personal
excitemeift and firmly but kindly <
' told the miners that what he had
laid before them was purely a se
ries of fact*.
Dr. Garfield said hi* statement was
made as his findings on the facts
and the figures in the r?' a*
he had Investigated it. He said
that it was as if one looked up at
the clock and there read the tim?.
"The clock tells you the hour: and
that Is What I have done. 1 tell you
that the per cent of increase which
should be applied to the miners
wages. on the average, to equalise
wages with the rise in the cost of
living is 14 per cent." said Dr. uar
iield.
><, Price Raise Allowed.
Dr. Garfield was equally insistent
on his finding that the price of coal
should not be raised st this time
This was a shot fired from the other
barrel of his double-barreled state
ment to the Joint conference. He
made it clear that the facts, as he
found them, meant that if the miners
