POINT PLEASANT REGISTER. VOLUMN 46. POINT PLEASANT. V. VA- WEDNESDAY, JUNE *2. 1909. NO. 47 COAL STRIKE TEMPORARILY SETTLED-MEN RETURN ED TO WORK. MONDAY. The strike of nearly 7,000 coal miners in the Kanawha field which became effective last Tuesday morn ing has been called off and part of the miners returned to work Monday morning. Orders have been issued by President Ben Davis, of District So. 17, United Mine Workers, for the men to return to work and the differences between the miners and operators will be submitted to arbi tration. Until the arbiters reach a conclu sion, the demand of the Kanawha operators, that they be allowed to pat into effect the long ton without granting the check-off, as was done by the Paint Creek operators, will be granted. Whenever the Paint Creek operators restore the agreement of J 90S the other operators in the Kanawha field will do likewise. AGREEMENT REACHED LAST NIGHT. The agreement was Teached last night following conferences lasting nearly all night Friday night and all day yesterday. Shortly after Presi dent Davis returned Friday evening from a conference with National Pres ident Tom L. Lewis he met with a committee of the operators and sev eral propositions weTe talked over. The operators remained in conference until early Saturday morning, and practically agreed upon what action would be taken. AGREE ON A?BrrRARION. President Davis was called into the conference several times. Saturday morning the district executive board <if the mine workers met and after remaining in session all agreed to the arbitration idea. Just what sug gestions were made by National Pres ident Lewis were not made public. While he cannot officially endorse any arrangement in conflict with the pro visions of the 190S agreement, it is believed that privately, he will ap prove the manner of settlement an nounced last night. OPERATORS SUCCESSFUL? As to who will win depends ujxm the board of arbiters. Temporarily, or until the board arrives at its deci sion, the operators are granted their demands. If the board decides that the long ton is reasonable and the miners are not entitled to the check off the miners will abide by the de cision. On the other hand if the board decides that the check-off is coming to the miners the operators will carry out their part of the agree ment. AMICABLE RELATIONS EXIST. The most amicable relations exist ed between miners and operators at the conferences here and a disposi tion Was shown by each side to be fair. WINFIELD BOYS BITTEN BY VICIOUS BRUTE SATURDAY CO TO PASTEUR INSTITUTE. The inhabitants of Winfield were thrown into excitement yesterday when two boys, Herman and Warren Mason, were bitten by a dog sup ]>osed to be afflicted with rabbies. The vicious animal sunk his teeth deep into the flesh of both. The boys were brought to this city yesterday and Dr. 1. C. Hicks, a Pasteur scholar, cauterized their wounds and, while not able to deter mine that there was danger of rabid infection, as a precautionary meas ure recommended that the boys be sent to the Pasteur Institute at Bal timore for treatment. The dog which inflicted the wounds was killed. The head of the brute was packed in ice and shipped to the Pasteur Institute, where a scientific examination will be made. The Winfield case is but one of numerous instances in which vicious dogs have made attacks recently. It Is believed by many that many dogs throughout this section of the coun try are for some peculiar and unex plainable reason given to rabid ten dencies.?Huntington Advertiser.
