the government could not abandon Its
position as the strike was in violation
of law.
Judge Ann ? issued the following
statement
"The strike is a violation of law. As
long as It continues we are going tn
proceed in the courts. The dispute be
tween the mine owners and workers is
an entirely different question that Lhey
can settle in their own wav The gov

John L. Lewis, acting president of the
United Mine Workers of Amen, a to
day, that negotiations could start anj
jtime. were pointed to as indicative of
the willingness of the workjngmen to
negotiate. Their desire that the In
junction bo vacated, however, was
equalled by the operators' demand that
as a preliminary to negotiations the
j strike be called off.
