Soft Coal Miners Practically
Decide Not to Walk Out.
WOULD NOT HELP SITUATION.
President Mitchell Speaks Strongly
Against General Walkout and Ad-
cates Assessments Some Delegates
Indianapolis , July 18. If the volro
nnd influence of President Mitchell of
the United Mine Workers prevail with
f the members of his organization there
will be no general strike of the or
ganization. Thp chances of such a
Btep being taken now are very remote.
In his speech In the convention yesterday -
terday afternoon Mr. Mitchell advised
strongly against a Etrlkc and urged
that the bituminous minors continue
nt work and that a system of assess
ment upon the members of the order ,
which he outlined , be carried Into ef
fect as the best means of affording
aid and support to the striking anthia-
cite men In the east.
Sentiment Against Strike.
His recommendations , If adopted oy
the convention yesterday , would have
Bottled the entire question for which
the convention was called and an Im
mediate adjournment would have fol
lowed. A motion to adopt the sugges
tions of President Mitchell provokcvl
a long debate In which the general
sentiment was against the ordering
of the strike. The men from the an
thracite regions finally made a request
that they be allowed to hold a caucus
to determine upon an expression of
opinion as to what they thought the
convention should do and asked nn
adjournment of the convention for
this , purpose. Their request was
granted and the adournment taken.
The men who were In favor of a strlko
were In a decided minority In the con-
The convention began In Tomlinson
hall with an attendance of about 900
"delegates. Nearly every man on the
floor was the possessor of several
proxies. The first session was not of
an executive character and there were
many spectators present anxious i to
witness the proceedings of what has
teen heralded as ono of the most Im
portant gatherings of laboring men
held In recent years ,
Mitchell Outlines Policy.
President MHcholl advocated the
following policy : That the treasurer
of the order bo directed to appropriate
$50,000 for the relief of the anthra >
cite miners ; that local unions approprl
ate for the same purpose as large a
sura as they can afford ; that an as
scssment of $1 per week be levied
on all members of unions ; that all
officers of the national districts dra
Ing a salary of $ GO a month or over
contribute 23 per cent of their salar
ies ; that an appeal be made to all
trade unions and citizens generally
to aid the cause of the miners ; that an
address to the American people b'i
issuedi appealing to them to bring such
pressure to bear as will compel the
operators to submit to arbitration.
Walkout Out of the Question.
At a caucus of tbo Illinois and Ohio
delegations It was determined td op
pose any general strlko. The Iowa
miners held a caucus In the evening
and decided to uphold the action ot
The action of the caucuses makes a
general strlko practically out of the
question , as 'tho anthracite men carv
not carry their point without the aid
of Illinois and with that state and
Iowa and Ohio against thorn , there is
no apparent manner In which a strike
< : an lie ordered.
The opinion prevailed among the
< Ielogates that a strike would lessen
the chances of , the anthracite minors
to win , for the reason that It would
take from them all the support that
the soft coal men will be able to ex
tend If they continue at work. Then ,
s.f too , there Is a genuine dislike amen
r the soft coal men to take action that
will place them In the position of violating
lating their contracts with the mlno
Caucus of Anthracite Miners.
is. The meeting of the anthracite , min
ers hold after the adjournment of the
is.b convention resulted In nothing but the
b conclusion that there was no way In
which a strike could ' bo forced and
that these members' the anthracite
districts who were anxious for a strlko
would bo disappointed. There was a
long conference and n vote was do-
cldod upon , but when It was partially
taken It was seen that the result
would bo so strong in upholding tin
recommendations of President Mitch
" ell that the vote was not conclude. ! .

anthracite men that Is generally dis

Mitchell is Pleased.
President Mitchell said : "I am
greatly pleased with the outcome of
work done by the convention so far ,
and I have no doubt thnt the policy
outlined In my speech will bo' carried
out substantially. Some minor
changes may bo made , but the policy
ns a whole will be followed by the
convention , I am certain. "

the fact that Archbishop Ireland nnd
four moro of the most prominent
churchmen In the United States were
the principal sponsors for the Instltu

authorities to continue the Gaelic
