Firmly refusing to bo put In the po

federal government has rejected the
proposition of the union labor lenders
thnt It abandon the legal proceedings
ngnlnst the coal strike as a prelimi
nary to negotiations for peace.
On Saturdny Assistant Attorney
General Ames asked Federal Judgo
Anderson at Indianapolis to make per
manent the restraining order, thus es
tablishing the illegality of the strike.
If this is done, according to the lead
ers of tho miners, tho strike will be
of long duration because the men "will
resist to tho last any attempt at
wrongful compulsion."
In most of the bituminous Holds
there was little change In tho status,
thouch onorntors In Colorado and
West Virginia reported gains In pro

conl bognn to mnke Itself felt and
there were appeals for tho release of
conl conflscnted by tho railroads; n
number of trains were cancelled to
snvo fuel; In some places the schools
were closed for short periods.
President Wilson gave to Fuel Ad
ministrator Garfield full authority
over prices, distribution nnd shipment
of all fuel. Doctor Garfield delegated
to the railroad administration his au
thority over distribution.
Such broadly was tho coal strike
situation nt tho time of writing. Thero
was little sign of yielding on either
side. The operators of Illinois were
of the opinion thnt tho strlko would
last two weeks longer nnd that then
public opinion nnd the government
would compel tho miners to call It
'off and accept arbitration. In which
enso the operators would agree to tne
flve-dny week, If assured of adequate
sunnlv of cars, nnd would grant an
Increase of wnges.
Samuel Gnmnors, who with W. S.
Stone, bend of the locomotive engl
neors, has been working to bring about
a compromise, made the appenl for
vacation of tho Injunction against the
strike, nnd issued a statoment do
signed to justify the demands made
by tho strikers nnd accusing the op
erntors of much wrongdoing and nn
fnlrness. The latter retorted with a
statement saying that Mr. Gompors'
pronouncement wns full of mlsrepre
setitntlnns, continuing:
"It Is not true that tho operators
representatives walked out of Sec-re
tnrv Wilson's conference, leaving Mr,
Lewis with no altcmatlvo hut to call

from the conference In order thnt
their presence might not embarrass
Secretary Wilson In his effort to per

states, that for the past several years
the miners have averaged only 100

"It Is a fact, however and Mr.
Gompors could easily hnve ascertained
It that virtually every bituminous
mine In tho country hns on Its pay

order, was up for re-election nnd was
opposed by Richard II. Long. The lat
