Hi 3j The settlement of the strike, which continued for one hundred sixty three R 3 T • days was a decisive victory for the miners. Em 3f Laving aside the smaller issues the big question involved in the strike Mj f was whether Anthracite prices were to come down or remain at war-time Hfl V levels or higher. The agreement was not the result of a public mandate 03 V in the sense that the people expressed a willingness that Anthracite prices Eg to should remain up in order that the union might continue to receive war- Hi ▼ time wages, it resulted rather from the dire necessity of the Country for m T Anthracite. Em Iv ery economic principle was sacrificed by the operators, or the mine m If owners when they yielded to the workers. They felt, however, that their pH f mines would be seized and operated by the (iovernment at the old wage 03 scale, or perhaps an increased wage. It was a bitter pi I! for the operators Q 3 £ and the great mass of straight thinking Americans who had to sacrifice Hj 32 a principle. ? Hh The miners have lost millions in wages and gained their |Hint. The K f operators and dealers have lost millions and have gained nothing, but the jfc j X respect of the thinking public. £ Anthracite Coal is Now Being Shipped % H 3 We have been assured by our sources of supply that we will receive v pH Anthracite Coal from time to time, probably three-fourths of our usual 3! Ha requirement. In fact we are receiving some cars now, which we are unload- jtj ing in our bins and which we will start to distribute about October 15th. X £ While we assume that all our customers will want coal we would like an tfj T expression from you within the next two weeks as to your probable require- Hj! 4; ment, so we may arrange our delivery sheets accordingly. ? f The Anthracite operators and Pennsylvania Coal Commission have £ f laid down certain rules to cover the distribution of Anthracite Coal to Jp v consumers by the dealers, so that there may be a fair and equitable distri- £ bution. They have also laid down the principle that operators shall mar- X 5 33 ket their coal through reputable dealers only, and also say that efforts by j£ ! T consumei-s to secure direct shipments will be disregarded, since such ship- v fe ments are a menace to the industry and an injustice to other consumers J ;; at this time. jft If During the thirty years or more that we have been engaged in the f coal business we have always rendered the best service of which we were j ; j; capable, and the fact that we have continued in your confidence so long X would seem to indicate fair and square dealing.
