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
