The convention of the United Mine Workers yesterday took radical action regarding the power of the national of ficers to declare strikes. The constitu tion was amended to allow the national .executive board, of which the national officers were made members, to declare any strike or suspension. The district presidents and secretaries shall be first consulted. The proposition to increase the salaries was defeated, and they will remain at the present figures: Presi dent, $1,500 per annum; vice president, 81,200; secretary-treasurer, $1,300. The new action governing those who are eligible to membership in local unions provides that "locals shall be composed of miners, mine laborers and other workmen, skilled and unskilled, working in and about the mines, except mine managers and top bosses." The convention took action very Im portant to the anthracite region. It in creased the executive board from eight members, adding two representatives from the anthracito fields. One of the new men will be Timothy Hayes, of Dickson City, Lackawanna county, a former resident of Drifton. Hereafter the Mine Workers' Journal will be print ed entirely in the English language.
