. Coal Operators at Wat.
Coi-mura, Ohio, Dec 12. A, singn
1st scheme has been discovered, the
object oi w hich is to prevent the com
petition of the soft coal of eastern
Pennsylvania with the coal of the
Hocking valley. I.ast winter the
Hocking valley trust advanced the
price of coal lAccntsatonatwholesale.
Members of the trust now complain
that they were being undersold by the
Pennsylvania operators, who have
shipped 10.0110 tons to Cleveland alone
last month. The operators, therefore,
decided to make a cut of 10 cents a ton
in wages. The executive Vnicrd of the
National Miners association has takeit
t'nc matter in hand, and an cfiort has
been made to indue; the miners of
Pennsylvania to strike for the same
wajjes as their Ohio brvlhren. An ad
vance of 4 -i cents a ton would put
them on the same footing.
