PRESIDENT MITCHELL MAKES ADDRESS
Many- Walk Mile Alli Meetlac

Speech In Their
SCRANTON. Pal, Aug. 1. The Urn Of the
Strikers' dim meetings planned to take
pUco at the various otrlke center u held
todsy In the Round Woods. There were
T.00O, strikers present from oil porta of tho
city and" tho' afljointng towns,- some locals
bavtng marched. tour mile to tho meeting,
headed by a band or drum corpa. carrying
flag and banners. National President John
Mitchell and several of tho district officials
delivered addresses. The crowd enthuel
asttcelly, cheered all tho apeakora and fairly
went wild over Mitchell. When ho waa in
troduced to apeak someone shouted: "Hsts
off!" and although tho aun'o raya beamed
down ao intensely that many were carried
from tho crowd exhausted, eyery man in the
Tast assemblage bared -his head and re
mained uncovered until his speech waa eon
eluded. Then tho crowd surged about the
platform and shook his handa until Mr.
Mitchell was almost exhauated.
Mr. Mitchell's apeech waa brief and dealt
only with the llwa lssuea of tho fight. Ho
said. In fH:'
It bos been said by some who are not
your friends that the miners of tho Bcran
ton region are getting tired of the strike
and are about to return to work. I come to
find out If this Is so; I want to 'know If
you are going to resume work, dishonoring
your, organisation., and dishonoring your
selves? (Cries of "Never! Never!' "Not
No!" "Don't you believe It!" and the like.)
If fhle atrike is lost, May Ood Almighty
help the men, women and children who de
pend for their subsistence on the mining of
anthracite coal. If this alrtke la loot you
will pay the cost of the strike.
I want to say that the anthracite mtnera
went on strike themselves. They voted
for the strike. It was not the officers of
the United Mine Workers union who called
the strike, it will never end until oi
vote It ended.
'. Question of iettlement,
FYom the offices of the coal presidents In
New Vork comes th declaration that the
atrike will ho settled only In their own wsy
of settling It. I would direct you attention
to similar declarationa made In the WM
atrike. The coal trust may be powerful
and strong, but the American people whose
hearta throb In sympathy with the miners'
cause are stronger than the coat trust. The
American people, like a Jury, have paased
upon thla conflict. They heard of the
miners' requests for betterment of condi
tions and the operators' 'refusal. They
heard of the fnlners' proposition to arbi
trate and the operators' refusal. Ninety
per cent of the people have agreed that the
miners are right and the operators wrong.
I understand there Ib some dissatisfac
tion and misunderstanding about the distri
bution of the -relief fund. The operators
have sent the it among yoj to urge you to be
dissatisfied.. .- Through the newspapers they
have told -.' you that you were dissatis
fied. We have sent a circular to all
(he locals which will explain In detail the
plans for distributing relief, and I trust
when you hear It read there will be an end
to dissatisfaction - end . misunderstanding. '
While we have not get millions, we have
rC'J-!l tel. I V. 1. . n mlnM 1 1 1 ,. A
during the continuance of the atrike. (Loud
I want to appeal to men with means to
refrain from applying for relief. Let the
fund be used by those who are in absolute
reed of help. Be, patient with your com
mittees. Put your shoulder to the wheel
and do your share of the work. Don't de
fend altogether on your officers to win your
light. If we are to win we must all help.
The one among you who violates the law
la the worst enemy you have. No one la
more pleased than the operators In New
York to hear of disorder In the coal re
gions. I want our men to exercise their
rights that Inure to them under the laws,
but I want that no man shall transgress
the laws. ; ,
Sara atrike Will Bo Wo'a, r' ,
The strike will be won. (Loud and pro
longed cheers.), I bave no ' more doubt
about It than I have that I am standing
here addressing you.
The operators ere trying to make It ap
pear that the strike l beginning to break
up. There la a aaylng that those who
come from afar can lie with. Impunity. At
Shamoktn the operators tell the strikers
that the men at Wllkesbarre are returning
to work. At Wllkeabarre they toll them the
men at Shamokln are. returning, and at
other place they tell them the men at
Bcranton are weakening. 1 fall to see any
signs of weakening here. (Laughter and ap'-
plus,) , t , , ' ' 1
This ! possibly the last time t every will
talk to juia; I want you to listen to me. 1
want to Impress on you tha Importance of
winning this strike. If you win, aa you
atrlkea;. there will be a basis of adjuat
wn! frtved which will prevent atrlkea.
If you lose the strike, the operators will
make you pay for their strike losses by rc
H1ll,1trS,''OUf -And if you lose the
atrike you lose- your organisation. I trust
and hope and constantly pray you will

Of the First district of the United Mine
Workers, held at Nantlcoke aome weeks
ago, Mr. Mitchell criticised the alliance be
cause, ne Claimed, it was cot consistent It
wanted to prosecute all miners who vio
lated the law, he claimed, but overlooked
the many violations) of th law committed
every day by the coal combination.
The alliance replied in an open letter tn
which It enumerated many outrage said
to have been committed by strikers and
other In the coal region since the atrike
began. Mr. Mitchell waa called upon to de
fine hi position and to Issue a proclamation
to hi follower warning them to keep on
the aid of law and order. He made no re
ply to the letter.
Yesterday the alliance Issued another ODen
letter to the labor chief and after consult
ing with his advisors Mr. Mitchell decided
to answer It. In hi reply he takes the
ground that he has always been a staunch
defender of law and order and that hi fol
lower know It.
Mr. Mitchell had nothing to say with ref
erence to the suit tn equity brought against
him and other national officer of the United

came to th conclusion that the large force
which bad been engaged in that. city. New
