Strike Leaders Recommend
That Terms Be Accepted.
General Resumption of Mining
i Throughout the Anthracite Coal
| Fields la Expected to Begin Next
| Thursday Congratulations Pour In.
' Wllkesbarre , Pa. , Oct. 17. The
executive board of the three anthra-
clto districts of the United Mine Work-
crs of America , In joint session yester
day , unanimously decided to recommend -
mend to a delegate convention of
etriklng miners the acceptance of the
Arbitration proposition submitted by
the president of the United States ,
fend It Is reasonably certain that the
advice will be followed and the great
struggle brought to ai close. The con
tention will ba convened in this city
Monday morning , and It is the hope and
the belief of the officers of the union
that the mining of coal will be re-
Burned before the close of next week ,
after a suspension of more than five
months. The citizens of the entire
region are much elated that the strife
Is almost over , because/ business in the
coal fields has been practically para
lyzed since the strike began.
If the plans of the strike leaders
are not disarranged , a general re-
Gumption of mining will take place
about next Thursday. It Is expected
ttho convention will last two days and
that there will be an Interval of one
Say from the time the convention ad
journs until the tlmo set for the men
to go back to the mines. If the con
tention should be In session on Wed-
rosday , it Is probable resumption
( would not take place until Friday.
.There will not be enough work at first
for all the strikers , as It Is the Inten
tion of the companies not to dismiss
nonunion men , who have stood by
Ihem during the strike. The organiza
tion will take care of such other men
as arc unable to find work until two 01
three months have elapsed. This la
'duo to the condition of the mines.
Borne of them are wholly or partially
flooded and others need repairs.
I It was a lively day around strike
headquarters. From early In the
morning until after the announcement
. was made that a convention would bo
called a crowd was congregated at
the place. Mr. Mitchell spent an ex
i tremely busy day. In the morning ha
fcad many callers , who oamo to con
gratulate him , and in the afternoon
he was engaged with the three district
boards ! Telegrams of congratulations
from all parts of the country came to
the miners' leader during the day.
There was some opposition mani
fested in the meeting against certain
features of the plan , but after a full
discussion of the objectionable partE
a unanimous vote was taken to recom
mend to the convention the accept
ance of the proposition. It Is expect
ed that some objections will be raised
on the floor of the convention , but ths
officers are confident that the opposi
tion will disappear when President
Mitchell explains all the features of
the modified proposition to the dele
A question was raised yesterday aa
to whether Commissioner Wright , who
will be the recorder of the commis
sion , shall have the right to Vote in
case the six other members of the
board are equally divided on any ques
tion In connection with a settlement.
Mr. Mitchell , when asked , appeared to
be sure that ho had not , and other offi
cials of the union were also uncertain
of Mr. Wright's status The matter ol
the term of years that the agreement
shall be In force was also a source of
much Inquiry. The union was strong
ly opposed to the operators fixing the
term of years.
The coal companies , anticipating
the ending of the strike next week ,
are busily engaged In preparing for
resumption. Tons of thousands of
coal cars are In the regions ready for
loading and extra efforts will be made
In moving them to the large dlstrlbut *
Ing centers once mining Is resumed.
It Is estimated that more than 200 of
the 350 collieries will ho in operation
by the end of next week , and will pro
duce enough coal to relieve the situa
tion. There Is considerable talk heard
that the withdrawal of the troops will
begin In a day or two , but this can
not be confirmed. Soldiers are spend
ing their tlmo quietly In the camps.
Telegram From Mitchell.
Washington , Oct. 17. There was re
ceived at the white house quite a long
telegram from Mr. Mitchell of the
mine workers' union , In reply to u
message the president had wired him ,
giving the final result of the strike
agreement , with certain suggestions
from the president that had been ac
complished. It was the president's
wish to have a speedy resumption of
mining. Mr. Mitchell's response gave
what had been done In Wllkesbarre
toward declaring the strike off. Ac
ceptance of places on the commission
Imye been received from Mr. Parker
and some other members of the com
The work of the commission will be
exhaustive and will take considerable
time. It is the president's desire that
the Inquiry bo very thorough and that
the commission perform the labors set
before it so completely as to secure
not only a final adjustment of the pres
ent troubles , but also to furnish a
basis upon which similar great labor
troubles may be averted in the future.
Its first step will be to organize and
select a chairman to pi tMldo over its
deliberations. Who this will be , ol
course , Is not settled , but depends or

General Wilson , formerly chief of the
engineer corps of the army , however ,
heads the list of members and may be

British Press Comment.
London , Oct. 17. "The president's
triumph , " Is the subject of long dis
patches and editorial articles In all
the morning newspapers , and in some
cases congratulations are also extend
ed to J. Plerpont Morgan. The opin
ions expressed are a measure of the
relief felt In England. The Dally
Telegraph says : "American trades
unionism , by securing a reference to
arbitration , has achieved a precedent
which may be far-reaching , for It sug
gests unmistakably that the spread of
labor organization across the Atlantic
may prove to bo a more rapid and
powerful check upon the trusts than
either tariff reform or federal amend
ment. "
Pleased With Commission.
New York , Oct. 17. During the aft
ernoon Presidents Tmesdalo , Fowlei
and Underwood and Chairman Thomas
called at J. Plorpont Morgan's office.
President Underwood was asked what
he thought of the commission appoint
ed by President Roosevelt : "It Is a
good commission , " ho said. "No
body could have appointed a better
one. "
