DETAILS OF DISAGREEMENT
Miners Reject the Terms Offered by the

Clifton, Akiz., Juno 4 1003 Tho
prediction freely uiado that the operation
of tho eight-hour law would
cause troublo In tho Clifton and
Mororici districts was vorlflod on
Monday last, June 1, when tho law
went Into effect.
After several conferences between
tho olllcials of tho Arizona, Dotroltand
Shannon Coppor companies in which
Prof. James Douglas of the Detroit
Copper company aud President and
General Manager James Colquboun of
the Arizona Copper company, participated,
an agreoment was arrivod at as
to the scale of wages to bo paid under
tho terms of tbo new law limiting the
hours of labor of those omploycd in
underground mines to eight hours.
It was decided that as a partial concession
to the demand made by such
employes that they roceivo tho samo
pay for oight hours that had heretofore
been paid for ten hours' work, tho
companies would pay a nine-hour
wago for eight hours' work, and announcement
was made accordingly.
This the men rofuscd to accept aud
l,.'i00 miners went out on strike, which
necessitated n complete shut-down by
the three companies, throwing out of
employment 2,000 men additional,
composed of smcltormon,
and othor top men.
It Is claimed on bohiilf of tlio companies
that in consequence of tho ore
being low-grad, they can not afford
to pay anything like tlio
per cent advance of wages demanded,
tlio class of ore being mined nvoraglng
about four percent.
Up to tlio present timo uo violcneo
has been attempted, and, apparently,
there is no contemplation of it. Ono
of tho moro boisterous strikers haB
been placed in ji.ll, and as a matter of
precaution, tho county olllcials havo
deputized about twonty moil to protect
property and presorvo order.
