It Said Another Effort for

Now that tho minors have defined

said, will make another appeal to the
coal operators to arbitrate.

ers In the success of their movement,
and while they expect tho operators to

Tho national convention adjourned
Saturday afternoon after unanimously
adopting tho plan offered by President
Mitchell for raising a fund to aid the
striking miners.
A few changes were made In Mit
chell's plan by the special committee,
but they relate only to tho method of
A double system of collection was de
cided upon. At the mines where tho
chock system Is used the men will pay
10 per cent of their earnings. At the
othor mines there will be a fiat assess
ment of SI a man every week. All the
money that Is paid Into the defense
fund will bo devoted to the anthracite
The special committee also framed an
address to tho American people Inviting
help. It states that to continue tho an
thracite strlko tho miners will need
$1,000,000 a month besides what can bo
raised within the union.
Tho wisdom of dating tho assessments
from July 16 provides at once a fund for
tho mine workers, which It is oxpectod
will be paid to them within two weeks.
Meanwhile the locals to which tho
money is to bo distributed are arranging
committees for the work of finding who
are in need and planning the methods
of relief.
The miners are also well pleased with
tho plan of getting work in parts of the
soft coal region, whore there Is room for
men, and expect within a month, if the
strike lasts that long, to have one-tbind
of the present number who are idlo at
work. The relief plan makes it possible
for a man with a family to loavo his
wife and children to tho care of tho
local to which he belongs while he goes
away and gets work.
The district leaders arrived today and
at once began the relief plans. Presi
dent Mitchell is oxpectod tomorrow.

tionality or clan. It is simply an asso
ciation of citizens against lawlessness,
riots, conspiracy, denial of constitution
al rights, against unnecessary and fre
quent strikes and strife and above all,
unalterably and forever against those
un-American weapons, intimidation,
violent persuasion and the boycott.
"Any lawabldlng citizen willing to up
hold those principles, and to assist 'to
promote the general welfare, and secure
the blessings of liberty to ourselves' and
to our follow citizens, is eligible to mem
bership; and every man who has tho
manhood to stand up and fearlessly
assert his rights Is herewith invited to
join this Alliance, which will be a per
manent organization for all time to
"The Alliance declares its exalted re
spect for honost labor and Is friendly
to labor unions, because it believes
when they aro conducted In tho spirit
of American liberty and personal free
dom, and wisely guided, they inay be
of great benefit to tho wage earner and

that there are generally black sheep on
both sides of labor controvorsies and it
pledges Its members to use evory en

"That hanging In effigy, the digging
of mock graves and overy othor form of
violence, throat and libel must cease.
"That tho free and unhampered use
of highways, which aro public property,
must be accorded to everybody not

"That the boycott Is unlawful, be
cause It Is a conspiracy, and tho means
chosen aro characterized by throats,
Intimidation, force, molestation, Im
proper iuterforenco and compulsion.
Therefore such conspiracy or boycotts
must cease because they are un-Ameri
