but all sides refused to listen to the
pleading of the friends or the threats
of foes. The state and national com

As It is not necessary for the governor
to accept the office of United States

that time , he will remain at the head

tlon composed of live men representing

TOdward S. Phillips acting as chairman
held a conference today with J. P.
Morgan in the private olHceofMr.
Mo gan here. The conditions of un
rest in the anthracite coal regions at
present were set forth In the briefest
possible form by Father Phillips , who
presented the delegation to Mr. Mor-
van and to whom Mr. Morgan ex
pressed his interest In their errand
and his willingness to make personal
ctTort to prevent a strike , tluiugh he
lecllurd to hold a public conference
with the labor leaders.
The contcrcncc lusted less than half
an hour. Father Phillips made a brief
petition , saying that the delegation
were there merely trying to bring
iboutsomc action that would prevent
a strike ; that they were ready to act
as an Intermediate body , or to bo used
in anyway that would compose any
.MOUUAN U1VU9 1118 I'OSITION.
Father Phillips asked Mr. Morgan
If he would meet John Mitchell , presi
dent of the mine workers' union , who
has been In New York for several days
Mr. Morgan replied. In substance ,
that his attitude up to the present
time had been toward the prevention
of a strike , lie said he was much In
terested in the mission of the dclegu-
tlan , and he assured them that they
could rely upon him U > do all within
his power to prevent any action that
would paralyze business. He remark
ed , however , that he was disinclined
to hold a public conference with the
labor leaders' , Indicating as a reason
for this attitude the belief thatshoiild
a public meeting between himself iind
the labor leaders bo held publicity
thereof , and possibly attendant con
clusion might hamper the acceptance
of the best cuds which all are seeking.
In other words , ! us Mr. Morgan re
marked , should he hold a public meet
ing or conference , "half of Now York
\\ould be upon his heels. "
Mr. Morgan added that the ends
sought could best be achieved through
other channels , and he assuicd the
delegation that ho might communion to
w th the boaid.s of trade later.
"You may rest assured that I le-
blovo there will be no strike. " re
marked Mr. Morgan. After the con
ference Mr , Morgan declined toke
