Tho papers yesterday were vehe
mently denying the reports of those of,
the day before to the effect that tho
mine owners contemplate a refusal to
abide .by the decision ot the arbitra
tors, In case It shall involve any iccog
nltlou of the union.
Tho searching cross-examination
witch Mr. Mitchell has been under
going for some days past, at tho hands
of tho operators' lawyers, seems to
Indicate an extreme bitterness of spirit,
niid sonio purpose not apparent when
nppllod simply to a redress of tho al
leged grievances of tho miners.
Tho most significant Intimation, how
ever, ii-. tho direction of the reported
disposition on tho part of tho mluo
owners 'not to accept honorably the
award of a tribunal to which they
have ostensibly submitted tho mat
ters ot differences between themselves
and their employes, anrt to tnko a
possible adinntaga ot n technicality,
is found In a leading editorial of the
New York Sun In Its Issue of Sunday.
Tho Sun Is not only the tblck-and-thin
defender of trusts, but all through
tho weory coal strike it Insisted that
the operators were quite right In refus
ing to enter Into any treaty whatever
with the minors; that they had nothing
to. arbitrate, that tho only consti
tutional function tho President had
to perform in tho matter was to com
ply with the demand of Mr. Banr by
calling out tho federal troops, and
that the slmplo duty of tho latter was
hedge in advance by throwing the bur
den of probably repudiating the arbi
tration agreomont tjpon tho miners
thomselvos the Sun concludes thus:
"No one can read 'tho statement of
Mr. Mitchell and his testimony before

vlnced that tho labor organization
which ho represents will feel Itself

of tho Commission with scorn and

Those utterances of n sheet which Is
the avowed exponent of tho operators,
taken In connection with Its assertion
that tho attorneys for tho coal ttust
aro to cross-oxomino him for all of
this week, together with the drift of
the cross-questioning, lead us to sus
pect that tho President's scheme of a
peaceful settlement ot the strike may
not bo completely successful.
, From this on the proceedings of tho
Arbitration Commission will bo
watched with extremo solicitude.
Tho recent convention of moneyed
men held nt Now Orleans has been, not
Inaptly, referred to as tho "banker's
The bankers thcro gathered would,
no doubt, hotly resent any kinship with
unionism In the current senfee of tho
term, for which wcshall not now quar
rel with them.
But wo do desire to call attention to
tho gross Inconsistency between their
utterances In tils convention and the
doctrines which they have for the past
ten years been preaching to tho peo
ple of tho United States as embodying
tho sum total of financial wisdom and
national morality.
Tho burden of .their well-fed cry was
tho need of an anchor to cast to wind
ward In tho shape of moro money when
the pinch of hard times shall revisit us,
as they seem to think It will, sooner or
Tho suggested devices to this end
tnko tho various euphemistic names of
"emergency currency," "asset curren
cy," "elastic currency," ""d go oh, for
But underneath them all lies tho
proposition that tho government Is to
furnish this currency ot many names,
and that It Is going to furnish It to
tho banks, and not to the people.
Tho, banks, In the hour of need, may
havo the resources of tho government
adopts tho prlnclplo of the former, so
long ns ho can monopolize its benefit
and make tho people, who furnish its
advantages, pay him for tho uso of
their own.
.An inspection of tho doings of this
convention will reveal tho fact also that
by an "elastic currency" is meant an
elasticity which shall help those who
need It the least, and bo denied to those
who need It most. Tho currency is to
be "clastic" to tho touch of tho cred
itor, but retry rigid nt tho approach of
the debtor. And tho government is in
this case, as in the others, to furnish
the "elasticity" to tho bank's, at tho
expense of their customers, who pay
tho taxes, for tho most part, which
keep the government running.
No alleged financial heresy that was
donounced by theso bankers In 1800,
with much untruth and all manner of
uncharitable speech, but has been v In
effect advocated by some of thoifi at
their lato mcetlrg. The only difference
Is thnt they denounce so-called vicious
doctrines when their advantages aro
likely to accrue to the pcoplo at largo;
they advocate them only so fnr as they
can win a monopoly of those advantages.
Hypocrisy Is bad enough. But hy
pocrisy plus selfishness, is perhaps the
worst compound by which public mor
als dan be poisoned. And it is not the
moro respectable when concocted by
those who claim to bo "upholders of the
nation's honor," and tho conservators
of tho financial integrity of the people.
code, matters .be, taken up at such ex
tra racetlugs lh'n conimendablo feature
of it. In this way, tho extra work of
redisricting the city, fixing salaries of
tho various officials and making other
necessary1 changes will not in any wa
conflict with tho regular buslhesa ot
Council. There seemed to bo no fric
tion Monday night over the appoint
ment of committees to take charge 6t
special departments of the work, and
this augurs well for a speedy and sue
cessful outcome of tho undertaking.
Only one feeblo attempt was made to
turn tho matter into a partisan meas
ure, but rt was" promptly turned down.
The work is to be done for the city, not
for the bencflfof a political party, and
if this Is constantly kept In mind, tho
public will undoubtedly be better satis
fled In the end and a great deal of use
less friction will be avoided.
Akron people will know within a few
days how much it will cost them to
pay thett city officials under the new
code. Council having appointed a com
mittee to fir tho salaries. Tho commit

A decision of the City Council to

at tho Presidents good offices In tho

tho tvork of a "gauiu warden."
In 'tho uitlclo referred to tho Sun
used, this very suggestive language;
"Tho plain ,nU Is that tho
Anlhraclto Strike Commission has no
legal status at nil. Theodore Roosc
volt, as President of tho United States,
had no authority to nppolnt it. In
making tho appointments, ho acted as
an individual and not as Presldout.
Those appointments might Just as well
havo been made, so tar as official
character Is concerned, by a person
holding tho olllco ot Coroner or gamo
warden. Nov do the nii'mpors of tho

When thai decision Is rendered, either
party Js entirely at liberty, so far as
tho law Is concerned, to disregard It.
Neither tho President nor any other
officer of tho nation or of auy State
can compel ohodlcnco to the determina

effect, Is c-utsldo tho law; and tho
United Mlno Worker! of America, as
well ns tho coal operators, aro at
liberty to Ignore any recommendation
or so-called Judgment of tho Com
missioners, if they sen fit so to do.
"Thero aro many pcoplo who doubt
ho propriety of such action as Mr.
Roosevelt has taken In this matter
because they fool that the lntlucnco

to be dxcrclsed in proposing or promot
ing n method of adjusting a great

sue, must pay the Iwnks their price
for the'prlvllege.
Andtheno schemes are put forward
by the men vt'bd six or seven years ago
were shouting that "the government
must go out of the banking business."
The difference between that cry and
the one heard from New Orleans Is
that tho former was directed against
tho go, eminent furnishing its currency
favors directly to Its citizens, and thus
dispensing with tho costly but useless
services of middle-men In tho shnpe of
bunks. Yes, whon tho people aro being
served by the government being lu the
banking business, It must straightway
"go" out" ot It: When the banks need
help financially, tho government must
embark in tha very business thus for
merly put under tho banker's ban.
Tho noxt Inconsistency found In tho
deliverances of this convention Is that
tho mooted project of "asset curiency"
Is no different In prlnclplo from tho sub
treasury scheme of tho western Popu
lists ot a dozen years ago, and which
these selfsame bankers at tho time

It was Just before the election of
1881, and I was n candidate then too.
Ono chilly night I was aroused from
piy sleep by tho ringing of tho door
bell. Upon getting up I found a mes
senger who said X was wanted at the
t-outt iiouso to naturnlizo a lot of
foreigners. Thoro wero no street-cars
in thoso days, and tho long walk from
West Hill to tho rrobato olllco was
relieved by thoughts of the increased
majority I was likely to "roll up" by
the votes of the foreigners aforesaid.
When tho Court House was reached,
I found assembled there somo 11 or
10 coal miners, under the chaperonoge
of a fellow black-diamond manipu
lator, and for nil of whom ho was the
solo wltncsH. He must have been,

that tho chaperon was in the employ
of a fellow candidate with me on the
