Tho npparent un willingness of nil union coal minors to return to work at the old pay scale caused government officials to put forth every effort to-day to bring alout Imme diate negotiation of a now wage, agroe mcnt. Secretary Wilson wlthou waiting for formal acceptance of his offoi to mcdlato the differences, began smoothing the way for tho Joint conference of miners and operators he has called to meet In AVash. Ington Friday. Both sides notified the labor secretary that they would attend the conferenco. SpokcMntm for the mlno workf rs said that If the mine owners came In a spirit of conciliation a new, agreement could be framed and ratified by Saturday night. Until an agreement Is formally accepted by the miners' scale committee, labor leaders said there was llttlo hope of full resumption of coal production. It was because of this possibility and the steady drain meanwhile on the na tion's visible coal supply that Secretary AVllson undertook to-day to induce some of the miners and operators to seo the other fellow's side. Tho indicated continued suspension nf mining activity in union fields to day was not a surprise to government officials, nor accepted an an actual lest of the attitude . of the miners. Complete distribution of the order cancelling the strike might take some lime, it was said. It was felt, however, that a large number of men still might remain out until assured that some of the demands agreod upon In convention would be granted. 1-ahor leaders who have frankly ad mitted that public sentiment wan strongly asalnst the strike, took com fort to-day from what they described as a seeming change of sentiment ns reflected In. newspaper editorials. Messages to labor headquarters stated that tho feeling was growing that the mlnorB were entitled to higher wages.

P. Hull of Lansing. The meeting, which was public, was held in the m mory. Memburs of the e3rd annual convention were eagerly discussing to-night tho warnings uttered by Mr. AA'Ilson. In pointing to the perils of radicalism, tho Grange master said: "The keynote of the hour, whether we face our national problems or consider our national blessings, Is found in a single sentence wo must all be Ameri cans together. There is to-day too much tendency among our peopio toward class endeavor, class thinking claFS legislation. The Interests of the nation demand the destruction of such unwortlly ideas whether they be hoisted by a labor union or a group of farmers. "In the final analysis, tho economic, In dustrial and social troubles of the times simmer down to tlmple selfishness al most every man Is out to "get his" re gardless of how his neighbors fare. "Always characterized by its breadth of vision, tho Order of Patrons of Hus bandry, more than half a century ago, doclared its purpose to educato and elevate tho American farmer but In order to clearly define thn place which the or ganization proposed to take tn the vast structure of American affairs, it further announced its purpose 'for we reek the greatest good to the greatest number ' "Only by a revival of this spirit and ' by the consideration of the whole peo pio to its attainment can a republic ever nope to survive-. AV e must all ha Amoricans together." Tho greater part of this week will bn taken up with routine matters, re ports of Stale granges, admission of now members nnd kindred affairs. The most Important day In tho opinion of tho. Initiates will he Fri day, when thorn will bo work In tho sixth or Flora dogren In the afternoon and In the seventh or Ceres degreo In the ovenliig.

Mr. Wilson was unite hopeful of HUccess and this feeling- wan shared by most officials. , Indianapolis, liul., Nov. 12. Tho United Mine AVorkers of America, contrary to previous announcement, have decided to withhold their appeal on the ruling of the federal court In injunction proceedings which resulted in tho railing off of the strike of coal miners yesterday. It hnd been generally helleved that re gardless of developments In tho situation the miners would fight their case In tho courts to the last ditch and attorneys for the coal workers announced yester day that their appeal would be filed with in two or three days, However, Henry AVnrrum, tlilef counsel for tho mine workers organization, to-night Htated that the outcome of tho conferenco of miners representatives and coal opera tors with Secretary of Labor AVllson In AVnshlngton Friday would determlno to a lame extent whether tho case In car ried further. The miners counsel have 30 days in which to file their appeal. The decision of tho miners Is taken to Indicate that they have accepted tho gov ernment's assurance that the suit against the minors was not an attack against the right to strike but was solely to prevent violation of the law, In this caso tho Lever act. Possibility of speedy agreement at the Washlncton conferenco, according to onlti- ; ion here. Is marred only by the question of when a now wage scale would become effective. Miners' spokesmen have Btated mr. ii un: upcraiuis mj to tno conrcrcnce In a spirit of conciliation, agreement was only a question of hours, but It Is known that the union men object to tho position taken by the operators that tho scale In effect before the strike still is In effect. A'ery few of the mlneis In thu Indiana coal fields reported for work to-day and It Is not believed that operation In the fields can be started extensively before next week. FILE EXCEPTM LONG CASE Mm.
