When wage tile conference adjourned tomorrow, each side stood until where it stood a week ago, the miners declaring that unless they secured a 10 per cent Increase In pay and shorter working hours they would not work after Saturday night, their present scale expires, and the aperators asserting that they will not grant the demands. "A strike is preferable to the granting of the miners' demands. We can not grant a wage increase, even If all other demands are waived. In other words, the operators can not yield, and If the miners do not, a strike will follow." ' That was the statement Issued to >*l«y on behalf ol the bituminous op erators by J. c. Kolsen of Terre Haute, who added that the operators will make no other offer than to ex tend the present wage agreement for another two years. The differences, therefore.
