Ko Mlaera' Agreement.
The joint acale committee of th Iowa
miner and operator has been In confer'
ence here three days, with no agreement,
and a prospect that there will be no agree
ment at thla meeting. The committee today
pent three hour dlacueaing tha proposi
tion mad by the operator regarding re
imbursement of the operator wher miners
lay off for Individual reasons. Th operator
held that tha United Mine Workers of
America, aa a body, would be responsible
for th loss sustained, and the miners' com
mittee pointedly refused to stand tor It.
Th point is, that in ess a miner atop
work to attend a funeral, celebration or
other event that la not of a union nature,
tha operator should be paid by the local
union an' approximate aum that would be
th operator' profit in case the miner
worked tha time specified. The United
Mine Worker of America members of the
Joint committee refused to agree to this,
but did concede that the union would use
It Influence to remedy this matter In some
way, also to hold the local union responsi
ble for walkout and strike that wer la
direct violation of th general agreement.
Considerable oratory oa both sides wa fol
lowed by a motion to adjourn at 8 p. m.
Th miner' committee met at the Morgan
houae, their headquarter, at 1 p. m. and re
solved to stand by their decision of th
forenoon, and from Inquiry with both sides
It I believed no settlement of the scale
question la possible at this meeting. The
cal must be reported oa by this joint
committee on March 11, when th general
seal committee I to meet In this city. It
was hoped that th present meeting would
result In framing a scale for eonsidsratloa
by th atat convention of th United Mine
Workers of America on March 4, but, pro
vided It Is ready that convention will
imply discuss It, and possibly mak om
recommendation to their commutes, to be
