Douglas of Rock made the motion to re

PHILADELPHIA. Feb. 13 The coal
strike commission, after being In continu
ous sfsston for more than three months,
closed Its optn hearings tcday.
The. commission w ill meet In -secret In
Washington ncx Thursday and begin the
consideration of Its award, and ' it is ex
torted, that by the end of the month the
decision will be announced.
The crowd that greeted Mr. Darrow when
he 'resumed "his closing argument today
was fully as great as that which listened
to Mrj' User yesterday. He took up the
entire time of both sessions, Ave apd one-
half hours, lie touched upon almost every
ni uuuri. -no iuucdcu upuu Buuuni ever I
phase of the strike, and" when he closed i
he' Wrs 'greeted with long applause, which
Judge Grsy-did 'not suppress.
- John Mitchell waa in court all day, but
did not have anything to say to the com
mission in parting.
Blind Spirit 'of Operators.
Mr. Darrow wasted no time in prelimi
naries, and began hla speech as soon as tho
session waa opened. Hefirst discussed th-
cause of the trike, placing the responsi
bility for tho coal famine on those who
wero .tenponslblo for the strike. If the
men struck without Juat reason, they were
responsible, i But If' they were right and
the operators hot broad-minded enough to
see the Justice of tlfelr claims, then tho
latter must take the- blame. :
He believed' the strike, was due -to the
"blind, autocratic, tturild -splr.it of the op
erators." 'They believed the lisue was who'
should be' the masters, theutperators or the
men. "I say oeither .ahould be the master
of the other," he declared with considera
ble emphasis. . '
Mr. Darrow proceeded at some length to
verify his assertion and quoted from the
testimony of the late Arlo Pardee, a coal
operate r, before i congressional Investiga
tion twenty yenrs ago, showing the alleged
"blind spirit" of the operators a score of
year back, whin they refused to treat with
the organization of the men.
The same spirit, he said, existed today.
He briefly referrec to the aplrlt shown by
John Markle in evicting thirteen person
for alleged criminal acts, and thoa took up
Mr. Baer'a sliding scale proposition made
yesterday. He said If Mr. Baer believed be
made a nice, fair proposition-he fropoeei)
to. show him he did nothing ot the kind.
With the assistance of the miners' ex
pert statistician, Mr. Darrow, found the 1
rer cent raise on 6 cents suggested by Mr.
Baer would give the operators an Increase
of 3Vs per cent in profits and the miners
only 14 on the $4.60 basis.
Cause of the Strike.
Reverting to the cause of the strlki
he quoted from the replies 'of the op
erator laBt springt when they refused to
treat with the organization. He said the
labor leaders hesitated to call a strike be
cause they knew it meant distress., and
suffering. He wanted the "captain of
industry" to know that It wa better for
the men to treat with them than have to .
go to the "patty feudal tyrants" 'who are ,
vnder them In authority for the purpose ot.

rather than have the Individual workers go

Then be read the communication from Mr.
Mitchell before the strike, asking for arbi
tration, and declared "arbitration ia the
only means by which Industrial peace can
be maintained. Every appeal and every
prayer of the men wa contemptuously re
jected by the operators. No human- being
could have done more than the organiza

"They spurned all our request with con

they said. They forced the strike that .they
might demonstrate to the men and to the
generatlona to. come that the owner of
capital are the master of the workmen.
They tried to crush the union which waa
the first ray of hope anti inspiration that
had entered the miners' dark Uvea." But t

Wonder Miner Wero Not Violent
Later on he again took up the question
of violence and said it waa a wonder, after
the operators had insolently and cruelly
rejected the requests ot the men, that there
waa not more violence among a population
reduced to a condition bordering on starva
He paid a tribute to the foreigners, whom
he said were warm-hearted, emotional
sympathetic, religious people. It - came
with poor grace, he thought, for the oper
ator to say that the Poles and Slavs
whose labor they had taken tor years, could
not -speak English aad therefore were not
a responsible party with whom they could
make a contract
He spoke of the strict adherence ot the
operator to the dead letter of the law
which l)e contraated with the moral law of
humanity. Then be went on
"Conflicts between capital and labor will
continue until tbeae captains of Industry
respect their fellow men. It is Idle, ,futll

Next he took up the. thirteen evictions
on the Markle property and in strong Ian

Turning to the boycott, Mr. Darrow said
there waa one illustrious' example at least

that wa -la. the American revolution.

Then he psused., almost breathless, be
fore passing on to draw a distinction be
tween the criminal "anl tne legitimate boy

the sociological aepect of the "scab."

Regarding the demand for an "eight-hour

Ho compared the -miner' life with that

Is no answer to aay, -'If tou give him a

..'.Arraign New' Jersey,.
- After pleading for the weighing of coal
wherever possible,' Mr, Darrow discussed
the merits of the union.
"I am not willing; to admit for a single
