BRITISH TRIPLE STRIKE IS OFF RAIL AND TRANSPORT WORKERS WILL NOT SUPPORT COAL MINERS. ALLIANCE IS SMASHED LLOYD GEORGE IS VICTOR, AL THOUGH MINERS' STRIKE. CONTINUES. (Western Newspaper Union News Service. ) London, April IP Announcement that the railway men's strike set for last night had been canceled, was made yesterday afternoon by J. H. Thomas, general secretary of the railway men's union. The transport workers' strike also has been called off, Mr. Thomas an Bounced. "As far as the railway men and transport workers are concerned, the strike is canceled," he said. .No explanation was immediately available of the railroad men's action, but it was thtjght in some quarters that it might indicate a split in the triple alliance. Announcement that the triple strike was off came a few minutes after Pre mier Lloyd George had announced in the House of Commons that the miners had refused to open negotiations for a settlement of their strike on the basis that had been suggested. The calling of a conference of rep resentatives of the miners from all the coal fields at a date to be fixed later was decided Upon by the executive of the miners' federation. It took this action .after hearing the decision of the railway men and transport workers to cancel their sympathetic strike. Frank Hodges, the miners' secretary, when questioned regarding this deci sion, said it meant that the miners' strike would continue. "If I had resigned I should not be giving you this report," he added, re ferring to rumors that he had been ousted as representative of the union The, prime minister read a letter from the miners' federation stating that the only condition on which a tem porary settlement could be reached was one which must follow concession of the two principles of a national wage board and a national pool. The premier said that upon the ques tion of a national settlement, of wages the government already had expressed a favorable opinion, but on the ques tion of a national pool it regarded such a pool as Injurious to the whole coun try because it involved the re-establish ment of government control. The gov ernment declined to accept this, he said. . The breaking away from the triple alliance of the railway men and the transport workers on the miners' re jection of the "moderate course recom mended by Mr. Hodges with a view to securing a temporary adjustment of the wage dispute, seems to have brought matters to a crisis where it was imperative to take a decision one way or another. Mr. Hodges, it is declared, -was se verely criticised by his colleagues for having made what was termed a peace offer to members of the House of Com mons without authority. Although the general situation la considered to have greatly Improved, the government has not relaxed Its measures, military or otherwise. The mine owners Issued another statement "repeating their previous stated opinion 'that the wages of the lower paid men ought to be adjusted and declaring they still were ready to meet the miners in conference.
