Another conference of tha striking

82 miners, whioh is not quite half

whether the men abandon their de
mand for 51 cents and two weeks
pay. or express a willingness to re
turn to wort: next Monday at tha old
prices of 46 cents. A vote waa taken
on the resolution to go back to work
at the old scale with the understand
ing that those present would be
oouna oy tne result. Xhe vote stood
47 in favor of the proposition and SS
against. The men decided to apply
individually to the company for their

It is understood that the 8herrard
shaft will be started no next Mondav
and that it waa a knowledge on the
part of the oompany that influenced
the notion taken this morning. But
tne men are -not sure now that they
will be taken back, and this faot, to

men, will not approve of the etart of
