STAR , 108 3TOTSS.. ] .1 a _ii Corner Centre and tilled iflaiioy, Prop. Walnut Streets. 1 i FREELAND, PA., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1901. STRIKE TALK ILL ADVISED Union Leader Says It Is Without Reason. Secretary Dempsey, of the United Mine Workers, Believes Matters Will Be Adjusted Amicably, "I do not think there is any reason for ail of this talk about another big an thracite strike," said John T. Dempsey, of Scranton, last evening. Mr. Demp sey is secretary of District No. 1, United Mine Workers of America, which em braces the Lackawanna and Wyoming regions. Continuing, Mr. Dempsey said: "The operators have not said they will not attend the conference at Hazle ton in March, and we are hopeful that they will. If they do, I have not the slightest doubt but matters will be ad justed satisfactorily all around." "All the talk of a strike at this time, oven in advance of the issuing of the notices for the conferences, is 111-advised and unjust to the operators and the mine workers. No one is desirous of having a strike." The feeling among the men grows that the operators will meet the delegates of the union in joint conference and that the employers will agree to maintain the present scale of wages for another year. Since last September the mines have worked more steadily than ever before. The men have saved considerable money In anticipation of possible trouble, which they earnestly trust will not oc cur. The railroads are rushing cars into all the mines in large quantities, and there Is no doubt that unless a strike again results in the spring the coming summer will be one of great industrial activity in this section.
