that emy question in dispute should
go to a national commission to be
composed of three representatives of
the mine workers, three represent
lives of the. operators and five rep

"It was proponed to make the
commission the final authority on all
disputes until next March, and mean
while the commission was to inau.
Riiratt a searching inquiry into every

to recommend the way to maintained

"The failure to secure the accept
ance of this proposal for a voluntary
adjustment left me no other course
but to invite the mine operatori to
return to their mines and resume

message the assurance of the prompt
and full support of the federal gov

find your own agenciea of law and

federal government are responsible
for maintained conditions under

necessities of the American people
and the public utilities which serve
them, particularly the railways en

must have ample coal to maintain
industrial activity; we must have
the coal necessary to the health, se

cause it is important to have it un
derstood how far the federal gov
ernment has gone in seeking a volun
tary adjustment. Thus far there has
been no challenge of the right of
workers to decline employment or
the right of employers to hire as they

WiU Not Chante Situation.
John I.. Lewis, president of the
United Mine Workers, issued a state
ment in which he declared that the
president's policy would not change
the attitude ot the miners and pre
dicted that it would not produce coaL
"This attitude of the government
will in no manner change the pom
tion of the mine workers or result in
the termination of the strike," said
Mr. Lewis. "Men voluntarily on
strike will not return to work mere
ly because armed guards are placed
around the mines. No question of
law and order is involved, because
the mine workers are observing the
law and no troops are necessary.
'The men were free to return to
work at any time during the 16 weeks
ot the strike.
"This action of the federal govern
ment is merely a gesture, which will
not produce coai in any suDsiannai
Quantity. The mine - workers will
continue on strike until some honora
ble avenue of settlement, in accord
with the principles of collective bar
gaining, is offered them.
"We are ready now, as we have
been since last December, to join
in any constructive move for the ad
justment of this situation."
At the operators' headquarters an
nouncement was made that there
would be no statement commenting
on the president's telegram.
While the president s address to
the governors was on its way out to
the country, reports of a new peace
move began to circulate. Informa
tion came from reliable sources to
the effect that some of the "insur
gents" among the operators who
wanted to accept the president' set
tlement plan unconditionally were
about to open negotiations directly
with the mine workers. It was con
sidered doubtful, however, whether
any real results would be accom
plished. Deputy Grand Master Is
