SAYS STRIKE
ISA CRIME
WALKOUT UNLAWFUL, DECLARES
PRESIDENT—GIVES STRONG
WARNING.
"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. The police an
nounced that $50,000 of the bonds had
ben recovered and that five arrests
had been made in connection with the
murder. Benjamin H. Binkowitz, the
messenger, vanished on Aug. 12. A
bady found a week later at Milford,
Conn., was identified as his. According
to detectives, Binkowitz planned the
robbery with a gang of thugs and ex
convicts who later murdered him for
possession of the bonds.
Sinn Feiners Escape.
London. —Six Sinn Feiners, includ
ing Commoners Stack and Beasley,
have escaped from Strangeway jail at
Manchester. Being political prisoners,
they were allowed to congregate dur
ing the tea hour. One of them sprang
at the warden and felled him. The oth
ers bound his hands and feet. He was
gagged and thrown into a cell. In the
meantime a rope ladder was thrown
over the prison wall by someone stand
ing in the street.
