VOL.3, NO. 84 Chicago, Wednesday, Jan. 7, 1914 ONE CENT MOYER TELLS TERMS ON WHICH THE MINERS WILL GO BACK TO WORK Gov. Ferris Finds Government by Gunmen in Michigan Copper Country Packed Jury to Investigate Shooting of Moyer. Hearst's Chicago American published today what purported to be a statement made by President Charles H. Moyer of the Western Federation of Miners to the effect that he would call off the strike in the Michigan cop per country "upon condition that the union men be allowed to Teturn with- out discrimination." The American said Moyer made this announcement following a con ference with other officials of the union. President Moyer said to The Day Book this afternoon that he made no such statement, and that what he had given out to the reporters had been twisted by the American. "Theronly statement I have made in that connection was made in a telegram to Calumet, in which I said that we would agree to a. settlement provided that no discrimination should be made against union miners now or hereafter; that there should be no discrimination in the future against any miners because of membership in any organization, society or anything of the kind. Also that there should be an eight-hour day and the advance in wages as recently published by the mine managers."'
