London, June 20. Leaders of the
miners' federation of Great Britain
I have taken no steps to prevent with
drawal of the government's offer of a
ten million pound subsidy to the coal
industry-, and it would appear that
: unless the government renews its of
j for. the money will not be provided.
l ne situation is full of uncertainty,
the outstanding fact being the call of
the miners union to all trade organ
izations affected by tne wage dispute
to meet at an early date for the pur
pose of taking national action to se
cure mutual demands. Most of tor
day's newspapers described the deci
sion to call this meeting as an "SOS,"
prompted by desperation. As yet
nothing has occurred to indicate how
th' call is likely to be received.
The annual conference of the labor
party wiM be held at Brighton tomor
row, nd Herbert Smith, president of
the Miners Union, and Frank Hodges,
the secretary, will attend. They will
probably determine the attitude of the
loaders of other unions, whose aggro
I gate membership is more than three
j million. Most of these unions are now
! involved on wage disputes and are
j ready, according to spokesmen of the
I miners, to take a stand with the min
I er? against what they regard as a con-
spiracy on the part of the employers
I to reduce wages below the pre war
level and break the unions.
On th e oth er ha n d . 1 ess i n terested
observers predict that the experience
of the miners themselves, who up to
Wioday. the sist day of the strike, have
-gained nothing and lost nxuen, wii
deter other unions from making com
mon cause with them.

Mistrial Has
Caused Suit
For Damages
Christian E. Hoffman has filed a
suil for da.mapres of $6,000 with priv
ilo.eo of treble damages afrainst Oeorge
Mcrwin Mead. Both men are of Green
wich, the suit being the outcome of
a recent action for damages brought
by Hoffman against Dr. Kritz Carle
ton Hvde. Greenwich, at which time
malpractice was alleged. During the 1 1
trial. jLfter the plaintiff had finished,
Jufige Keeler ordered a mistrial.
The mistrial was ordered after sev
eral men on the jury are said to have
informed the Judge that Mead, while
no on the jury was a member of the
panel, had talked to them in a way
to influence their opinion. It is
claimed in the present complaint that
Mead told several of the. jurymen that
Hoffman was trying to blackmail
Hyde.
Treble damages are asked because
of the mistrial which has already cost
i he plaintiff a considerable sum for
expert testimony and other costs, all
of which will have to be done over
again when the original case against
Dr. Hyde is called during the fajl
term of Superior Court.
