MINERS DELAY ON
SETTLEMENT PUN
Only Alternative Was Disaster,
Lewis Tells Them. — Presi
dent’s Proposal Predicated on
Belief Both Parties Accept It.
Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 6.—Defend
ing the action of himself and Acting
President John L. Lewis in agreeing
to accept President Wilson’s proposal
for settlement of the soft coal miners
strike, William Green, international
secretary of the United Mine Work
ers, declared to the convention here
the only alternative was “disaster and j
defeat for the miners’ organization, j
“We could have whipped the coal ]
operators, but we could not if we had
wanted oo whip the strongest govern
ment on earth — our government,
which has just finished whipping Ger
many.
“If we had not acceded President
Wilson’s proposal of settlement, the
powers of the federal government
would have been turned loose on us
with greater ferocity than anything
we have ever seen,” Green continued,
“We knew we had reached the limit,”
he asserted, as the delegates, with wild
applause and cheering, voiced ap
proval of what h said.
“With every mining community in
the country honeycomed with feder
al agents, gathering evidence against
our men, our funds tied up and women
and children freezing and facing star
vation, how in the name of God could
ve go on with the strike,” Green con
tinued.
Green’s speech followed an attempt
on the part of some of the delegates,
led by Robert H. Harlin, president of
;he Washington miners, to defeat the
purpose of the motion by Philip II.
Murray of Pennsylvania to approve
;he action of the officers, by requir
ng the award which is to be made
oy the president’s commission to be
submitted to a referendum vote or a
reconvened convention of the United
Mine Workers.
Secretary Green and Acting Presi
ient Lewis warned the delegation that
;o do otherwise than to accept the
^resident’s proposal would not be
teeping faith with the president’s !
jroposal, and that the commission
night not make any award if the min
e's should decide to reserve the right
;o a referendum on the commission’s
indings. Lewis ruled Rarlin’s amend
nent out of order.

Washington, Jan. 6.—Disposition
was evidenced by leaders of all Sen
ate factions today to await President
Wilson’s message to the Jackson Day
dinner of Democratic leaders, Thurs

in the German peace treaty situation.
While numerous individual and in
formal conferences continued today
between senators, spokesmen of the
various groups said they did not ex
pect any move in the Senate until
after President Wilson’s letter is
made public.
The only new development today in

said to have been prepared by Sena
tor Kendrick, Democrat, of Wyouing,
Tne draft of tnese reservations was
said to have been presented to Sena

Nebraska, acting Democratic leader
Senator Underwood of Alabama, Sen
ator Swanson of Virginia or other
Democratic leaders.
