certain features of the employer' ' liability
act. but whose bill wt laid aside for the
house, measure, la pushing this bill when
ever he gets a chance, and hopes to have It
taken. up and disposed of within a few days.
The bill amends the existing employer's
liability law In three particulars:
It allows suit to be brought wherever ac

This was the advice of Thomas L. Lewis,
president of the I'nlted Mine -Workers of
America, In addressing 3,000 of 75.000 Illinois j
n ine workers who have quit work, at ttene
ville this afternoon.
"It Isn't work we want," he continued.
"We're willing to do our part, but we want
a full and complete share of the results of
our lnbor. and we never will be satisfied
until we get It."
In an Interview after his address, Mr.
l.cwls expressed absolute confldsnee In the
outcome of the present suspension of work,
and said the miners will win out 1n all their
demands within thirty days In all the fields,
with the possible, exception of Illinois and
western Pennsylvania. In these latter
fields, he say, conditions are different than
In the others, and more time may be neces

"I want to say again," he said, "that
this Is not a strike. If Just a vacation, and
tho miners really will enjoy it. I do not
look for any shortage of coal, nor for sny
differing among the men. The mines
throughout the country have had a big

today. The quarrel, which, continued for

the growing feeling' of -partisanship amoiiK
the democratic and republican members of

The row- was precipitated by Chairman

deceive or conceal something from the

anger. Jumped to his feet and demanded
that the chairman's remark be withdrawn.

attorney and Representative Graham of
