Issued by the executive, board of the United
Mine Worker governing the hours of labor
and wage to be paid engineers, firemen

necessary to keep th pump and engine
The United Mn Workers and the officers
of tha Stationary Firemen's association, on
the other hand, claim that unless the coal
companies grant the demands made upon
them the great bulk of the engineers, fire
men and pumpmen will quit work. Many
of (he engineers do not like the predica
ment they are placed In. If they quit work
they may never be reinstated, while if they
remain at 'their posts and the miners
should win their strike they probably would
find that things would not be so pleasant
for them at the collieries In the future.
Moat of Them Will Strike.
At a largely attended meeting in this
city tonight a committee of United Mine
Workers reported that they had called on
many engineer during th day and that

secure green hands to take their places.
The stationary firemen have a membership
of over 1.000 In the district, and within a
year a great many firemen who formerly
belonged to the Stationary Firemen's as
sociation have joined the United Mine
Workers. . Secretary Mullahy claims that
9 per tint of the engineers and pumpmen

GENERAL WARREN DEFENDED
Anonymous Author Publishes Book
Explaining; Ilia Actions In
NEW YORK, Msy 26. A Tribune dispatch
from London says that an Important book Is
published today In reference to Sir Charles
Warren's action at Splon Kop. The auth r
conceals his Identity under the pseudonym
of "Defender," .but It Is understood he ex
presses Sir Charles Warren's views with
regard to that famous battle.
It will be remembered that about a month
ago. Sir Charles publicly complained that
the government was still withholding somo
documents bearing upon bis operations and
that those which were held, it considered
by themselves, gave a totally incorrect
view ot the matter and one which reflected
seriously on his military reputation.
The writer points out that the Boers con-
Idered Splon Kop the key to the situation
In Natal and that had it been held Lady-
smith probably would have been won. Hia
contention, therefore, is that blame for the
failure should Pot be cast upon Sir Charles
Warren, who ordered the situation to be
taken, but on Colonel Thorneycroft, who
abandoned It, without sufficient reason and
without consulting htm.
The writer says the general result of all
the Information Is to make It clear that
Splon Kop was ths . key to the position
dominating the country and that no one was
more astonished and surprised, at th aban
donment than General Warren, except the
Boer themselves. .
