reciprocity as already enunciated.
He will also recommend currency
and banking reforms which will give
the people moro elastic currency, and
will discuss the coal strike and gen

In Wages of Rail
Affects Settlement of
Latter Also Holding Out
For 10 Per Cent.
VVayne McVeigh Discusses Pres
Washington, Nov. 24. Wayne Mc
Veigh, attorney for the operators before
tho Anthracite Coal Strike Commission,
Is out in a signed statement giving
iome of the details of the renewed ne
gotiations for the settlement of the
strike, Ho says:
''The parties on both sides were con
testing every Inch of the ground when
tho great railway corporations volun
teered an advance of 10 per cent, of tho
wages of their employes, and their em
ployes are popularly supposed to bo ex
ceptionally well paid and treated, hav
ing regular employment, largo relief
funds, and, hi some, instances, pen
'lAs soon as such advance wos an
nounced, It seemed ,to be taken for
gianted that, notwithstanding the ad
vance two years ago, a' like increase
would now be granted tho miners, and
the question of wages being out of the
way, there was a general feeling In fn
vor of trying to adjust tho other dif
ferences. "The first move In that direction was
adopted by the Delaware & Hudsou Ca
nal Co. Mr. AVIIcox, president nnd al
so Its general counsel, drafted an agree
ment which his company wan prepared
to accept; but It did not prove satlsfac
tory to the other companies.
"Whllo I was still cross examining
Mr. Mitchell, I was asked to meet him
nnd his counsel In conference, to mako
an effort to reach some adjustment of
an amicable natme. Wo discussed the
matters in dispute on different .occas
ions at great length, and nt
last, by tho invaluable assistance
of Mr. E. B. Thomas, n possible adjust
ment was reached and when it
was submitted to the other gen
tlemen who with Mr. Thomas had sign
ed tho letter requesting the appoint
ment of tho commission, they all con
curred with Mr. Thomas in approving
ir as a basis of negotiations.
Personally, I earnestly hope such ne
gotiations will result In amicable
agreements betweeu the different com
panies nnd their employes, for I bellevo
such agromeuts will bo more likely to
Inaugurate an era of Industrial peace
throughout the region than a decision
by tho commission; but if agreements
cannot bo framed, tho commission
stands ready to decide all matters tho
parties canuot adjust between them
selves. "WAYNE McVEIGH.
