Sam Gompers Lays Blame
For Industrial Lock on
Mine Owners
WASHINGTON March 16.—Bitlmin
oua coal miners who have voted to
ca**o work April 1, “come what may.
will have the support of tho Ameri
ean labor movement in their struggle,"
President Gompers of the American
Federation of Labor, said in a state
ment tonight.
Coal mine owners, "bound by :
solemn agreement to confer with the
workers upon tho terms of a new
wage agreement," after that date,
"have refused to abide by the terms of
llicir own pledge.” ho declared, adding
that no group of employes in any in
dustrial controversy In this country
lias ever placed Itself in a more inde
fensible position.
"The citizenship of America can
draw from this conduct but one con
clusion." Mr. Gompers continued, "and
that is that tho mine owners wish It
to be understood that the pledge of the
mins owners is valuless. They aro
willing to break their own word if by
so doing they can reduce wages or
weaken the union. Profits and power
with the mine owners come first x x x.
The T'niteil Mine Workers of America]
have an honorable record of agree- I
merits honorably kept.
The industry for twenty years has;
been conducted upon the basis of ne-,
gotiation and joint agreement. The j
mine workers have met .very demand 1
made in those agreements x x x
What they ask now Is negotiations
and agreement. The thing they want
least of all is to be compelled to cease
to work as a final protest against the
dishonor of employers.
"The cause of the miners Is Just
and 1n that Just cause, they will have
the united and unswerving support of
the great labor movement of our coun
try "
No action was taken today by the
government affecting the probable
break In the industry and officials
conversant with the situation appeared
convinced that nothing more should b#
done to adjust the d*agrcem»n? in
Advance of Its final development."
J. A. Morrow, vice president of the
National Goal association, made public
tonight copies of a letter he hag ad- 1
droaaed to Jahn L. Lewi*, president of
tha United Mine Workers, complaining
that the union had sent ‘'broadcast"
•rronaoua versions of testimony given
by coal wltnessea. seeking railroad
rsts reductions, before the Interstate
commerce’ commission.
Mr Morrow declared hr had neyer
tegtlfled that s'erage selling prices of
bituminous coni were lie.RO during
1921. out of Which the miners received
fl 97 as lsbor cost, hut had fixed the
total cost of mining bituminous coal!
during f»ctober as averaging $7 .‘>9 per'
ton. against an average selling price
received by the mine operators of $2.73.1

would not pass, insisting that congress

WASHINGTON, March 16.-Tlie
campaign of tho "irreeoncilibles"

Interest and tho disposition of leaders
to regard ratification of tho pact as a

For more than three hours in a
senate chamber, which most of tho
time was all but deserted. Senator

both the four power and naval treaties
which he said would fit together to put
the United States in n position of

Asa Keyes, deputy district attorney,

murder of J. Belton Kennedy, when
adjournment was declared by Judge
Sidney N. Reeve late today. Indica

Jury w’ould retire by noon.
Keyes replied to defense arguments
that no motive had been shown for
Me*. Obenrhaln to conspire with
Arthur (’. Burch to slay Kennedy by
declaring It had been shown she had
been spurned by Kennedy. He reviewed
the relations between the defendant
and the slain, man from I*l7 to Aug.
1921, the date of the shooting, nnd read
from the letters which passed between
them. It was tho fifth time during the
trial Mrs. Obenrhaln heard these mis
sive* read. "Kennedy turned her
down not once but three times," the
prosecutor declared.
Keyes said that Mrs. Obenrhaln'* let
ters speak more truthfully than her
lips and nrcued to the Jury that the
letters showed the motive for the crime

The Jury was told that Mrs. Oben
