MIM Workcru' National Officer* Adjourn Without Ordering One. INHIANAPOLIS, Sept. 11.—Tho national executive board of the United Mine Workers of America has adjourned sine die without promulgating a formal en dorsement of the application of tho miners of the anthracite districts for permission to strike. At the close of the session President John Mitchell said: "Th '•re is practically no change in the situation. If the operators do not meet our demands within a given time the strike will be ordered upon the en dorsement of Secretary Wilson and my sell. Whether the time allowed is five days or longer I decline to say. In flueuees are at work to bring about a settitiiie-it without ordering tx^e men to lay down their tools. I must again de cline to say what these influences are for tii' reason that making this in formnti -i public would at once destroy their -tiveness." Summed up, the situation, according to the admissions of President Mitchell, is sin !y this: Keg',nations are undoubtedly on foot for the a settlement of the differences without a strike. So long as these are proce- umg the miners will not strike for the r- ason that the ojxjratoi^i would be left a loophole of escape from tho positk:i they now occupy by saying the men i 1 gone out at a time when there was a .ianee for an auiicabie settle ment. _____ BO'KF.VKLT AT LA COOK iurloOa tiay. carriage con taining Mr. and Mrs. It.
