The conference between the min- , ers and the operators of Ohio, Penn sylvania, Indiana and Illinois came to an abrupt ending yesterday. Presi dent John P. White of the United Mine Workers issued the following statement: "The joint interstate conference adjourned sine die without reaching an agreement. The officers of the in ternational organization have worked diligently to bring about a peaceable settlement. "It has been stated that the influ ence of certain non-union coal oper ator who desired a strike in the un ion fields was exerted to prevent a settlement. If such was the case, this non-union influence was too strong to be overcome. "We are determined, however, that non-union operators shall not precipi tate a strike in tne mining industry . if we can avoid it. Our failure to agree at this time does not necessar ily mean a strike on April 1. "The policy committee .represent ing the United Mine Workers of America will meet tomorrow and out line a plan of settlement which we be lieve" will maintain industrial peace in all the coal mining sections of this country and at the same-time bring about an agreement fair and just to all concerned."
