WINERS AND OPERATORS ARE
DELAYED IN NEGOTIATIONS Peoria, III., April 17. Negotiations between Illinois miners and operators are being delayed because rival oper ators' associations are trying to force higher rates upon their competitors, according to a statement nfade today by Duncan McDonald, secretary treasurer of the Illinois Miners' or ganization. The joint scale committee is upon the fourth week of its negotiations, but an agreement is nowhere in sight. The associations are the Illinois Coal Operators' Association; the Fifth and Ninth District Operators' Association and the Central Illinois Operators' Association. W. L. Schmick, t president of the Illinois Coal Operators' Association, the most powerful body, refused to speak for any association other than his own, but said the charge of the miners was unfounded. The oper ators are a unit, he declared. Mr. Schmick is president also of the joint scale committee, but refused to be quoted on matters connected with the negotiations. o o BITS OF NEWS Federal Court holds Oak Park may sue "h" road.
