Longaad Bitter Strut jle.
Wilkesbarre, Pa. Oct. 15."
There will be a conference of an
thracite coar operators in New;
York on Tuesday or, Wednesday
.to consider the strike situation.
While the operators declare
they will- not recede from their
present position of offering a 10
per cent, increase in wages and
no more, the strikers are not ex-'j
nected to withdraw from' the
stand they have taken. Instead
of the strike ending, a long and
bitter struggle is in prospect. -
It is said today that If the
strike is not settled before elec
tion the companies will withdraw
their offer of a 10 per cent in-
crease. , .
It is also rumored that next
April when the bituminous i
! yearly scale expires, the United
Mine Workers- will present to
the operators the alternative of
granting to both hard, and soft
coal miners a large increase in
wages or. facing a general strike

could be seen here today declin-1
i ed to discuss the action taken by
tha Anthracite Miners conven
tion at Scran ton yes terday.

steos the employers would

It is evident from their reti-1
cence that tne individual mne

It ts reported , -in the coal
regions tonignt icas ine preaj-
dents of the&e' roads will hold a
conference in New York tomor
row for discussion of the action
of the convention.
There was a story afloat today
that the operators will accept
the convention's decision, but
nothing has come to the surface
in this reerion on which to base
The United Mine Workers' of
ficials say they are now again
waiting on the' operators, and
that they, will continue to close
up the collieries that have been
in operation since the
1 gan, four weeks ago.
There are many reports in cir
culation that if the strike con
tinues much longer a break in
the ranks of the idle men will
occur. . ; .
President Mitchell an .(his as
sistant officials, however, reas
sert their confidence that the
men, both union and non-union,
will remain away from the mines
until after the strike is declared
Off. ' '.
There is- a fear prevalent inl
this region that if some of he
men do return to worK trouoie
will probably-arise through ef
forts of the strikers to persuade
the men to remain on strike.
All the collieries mat are
working still '- remain heavily
