Fol lowing a telegrcm from Globe last night to acting governor Page, adjutant general Coggins has notified two local companies of militia to hold themselves in readiness to go to Globe at a moment's notice if the situation grows worse. The labor troubles in Globe are apparently no nearer a settlement than they were the hour the mines suspended operations three days ago. At a special meeting of the miners' union, held yesterday, a committee of five was appointed to confer with the mine opera tors. Superintendent Hogardt, of the Old Dominion, refused the committee a conference on the grounds that it was not made up exclusively by former employes of the Old Dominion.
