! Government Will Not En
tertain Gompers'
Assistant Attorney General Says
There Can be no Abandonment, as
j Strike is Unlawful.
j The government cannot accept the
j proposal of organized labor to'end the
coal strike by vacating the injunction
against the officials of the United
Mine Workers of America^ Assistant
Attorney General Ames, in the ab
sence of Attorney General Palmer, an
nounced yesterday that the govern
ment couid not abandon its position
! because the strike was in violation of
Judge Ames issued the following
"The strike is a violation of law.
As long as it continues, we are going
to proceed in the courts. The dis
pute between the mine owners and
workers is an entirely different ques
tion that they can settle in their own
way. The government cannot tol
erate continued violation of the law
such as this strike constitutes.'
Labor leaders hero who had taken
a hopeful view of the strike situation
after hearing of Samuel Gompers'
suggestion for a settlement, were
plainly distuHied by news that the
Department of Justice would let the
injunction stand. All agreed that it
would keep the strike going for some
time^ This also was the view of op
Representatives of the mine'work
ers. counting hopefully on the early
end of court proceedings, were fig
uring on actual steps to adjust dif
ferences at scale committee meet
ings. As indicating the desire for
peace, the miners' agents thought it
would be unnecessary for the joint
conference to be held under~~the au
splces of the Department of Labor,
their idea being that the two sides
could meet exactly as they did at
Buffalo and Philadelphia before re
jection of demands led to issuance of
the strike order.
Refusal of the government to va
cate the injunction means a long
fijrht in the coal fields, while its with
drawal would have opened tho way
for a settlement of the strike within
'18 hours, according to Edgar Wal
lace, legislative representative of the
United Mine Workers of America.
''If the injunction were withdrawn
the scale committees representing
miners and operators could get to
gether, in -1 hours and settle their
differences at one rrtting.' \N allace
said. "The strike, however, would not
be called off until a new wage agree
ment was reached "
The miners' committee, with power
to accept the new agreement, could
call off 'he strike without referring
the question to a delegate convention,
Wallace said.
