"STICK TO POSTS” LAW WILL BE ENFORCED AND PUBLIC PROTECTED, IS ULTIMATUM. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Washington, Oct. 27.—The Presi dent of the United States and mem bers of his cabinet pronounced the proposed strike of bituminous coal miners scheduled for Nov. 1 a crime against the government and people of the United States. They brand the strike both morally and legally wrong and declare in a statement to the public that the law will be enforced, and means be found to protect the interests of the nation in any emergency that may arise out of this unhappy business. In plain, vigorous language the President announces that the strike cannot be permitted under the laws of the government for protection of so ciety. The government, he says, will use every means within its power to prevent the strike and keep the mines operated. The decision means that unless the miners call off the strike they and their officers will be prosecuted for a high crime against the government. It means, also, that the government will not hesitate to keep the mines operating, even if it may be necessary for the government to operate them and to protect them with its strong military arm. But the President hopes that it will not be necessary to prosecute the min ers and appeals to their officers and to the miners as individuals at once to recall all strike orders, announc ing that he stands ready to see that their differences with the operators are fairly adjusted by arbitration. “It is time for plain speaking,” the President declares, asserting that in this crisis he gives no thought to the merits of the miners’ demands. Their claims and interests can be taken up later. It is the paramount interest of the whole American people that must be secured first. The pronounciamento, issued after the cabinet had held two sessions and conferred with President Wilson in his sick room through Dr. Grayson and Tumulty, struck with tre mendous force on the minds of public officials, members of Congress and of ficials of the United Mine Workers and the Coal Operators’ Association. Against Anti-Strike Law. Washington.—Timothy Shea gave notice to Congress that the Brother hood of Locomotive Firemen and En ginemen, of which tlse is acting presi dent, would not observe the pending anti-strike legislation if enacted into law. “If these interests of the legisla tors believe railroad employes will un resistingly submit to any such inva sion of their rights as citizens,” Mr. Shea continued, “they had better ex pel that thought from their minds, be cause I believe I speak for locomotive firemen and hostlers at least when I say that any law which deprives them of the rights of American citizenship would not be observed, not because this class of American citizens hre law breakers, but because such a law would be unwaranted, un-American and contrary to American institu tions.” Solve Messenger Mystery. New York. —The mystery of a $178,- 000 bond robbery and the murder of the broker’s messenger who had them, was apparently solved.
