1 Operators Refuse all Demands
in Joint Conference.
"Other ISSUQO In Dispute as Far From
Settlement as la Rate Agreement
Matter Is Referred Back to Subcommittee -
, committee Position of Miners.
Indianapolis , Fob. 7. No agree
ment was reached yesterday by the
committee upon which doponda a basis
of Bottloment of the differences be
tween the United Mine Workers and
the oporatoro of the four competitive
mining states. The subcommlttoo
hold a session at which the question
of the minors' demand for a straight
Increase of 10 per cent formed the
point of discussion. The minors' rep
resentatives on the committee wore
given to understand by Francis L.
tlobblns that the operators were a
unit against an Increase of any
amount ; that this attitude was firm ,
and as long as the miners insisted
'upon their demands for the introduc
tion of the run of mine system and
the differential between pick and ma
chine mining the matter jot a 10 per
cent increase or any other increase
for that matter would not bo oven
considered by the operators.
This was taken by the minors' dele
gates as indicating that the operators
wore not so averse to an increase In
the price for digging coal as they were
to the other features of the submitted
scale , and after on hour's fruitless dis
cussion , without favorable results
either way , the committee adjourned
to meet at 2 p. m. , when the joint scale
committee had been called to hear a
report of the "committee of sixteen. "
The question was referred back to
the subcommittee , with Instructions
to arrive at a conclusion , If possible ,
' this afternoon. It developed that the
miners' delegates generally , while a
waited body for the Increased wage de
manded , are not in faror of sacrificing
the possibility of securing on increase
through the abandonment of the run
of mlno and differential propositions.
