not to accept the recommendation of

LONDON. July 16. Out of the
various manifestations of unrest in
the British labor f'eld shown since
tte outbreak of the war there devel
oped today what may prove, unless
an early solution Is found, one of the
most serious strikes in the history
of the country. More than 180, 000
men have laid down their tools
thereby shutting down virtually all
tbe mines In the Welsh coal fields
which supply steaming coal for the
UoTerameat Forbids Strike.
Th British government, using for the
first Urn the authority granted by the
so-called munitions measure, ruled that
the miners must not strke, a proclama
tion to this effect having been Issued
yeaterday. Th miners' answer to thla
proclamation wa to go on strike. Though
a subject of dally heavy fine for atrlklng
and though urged by their leader to
allow their demanda for higher pay to
be arbitrated, th miners threw aside all
wvloe and today refused to take up their
picks, thus not only stopping the mine,
but leaving idle th mine railway and
some ship engaged In coal transport.
Theoretically the government la em
powered to check the strike forthwith,
but It la a puiillng problem how th
fine authorised under the munitions
measure are to be enforced.
No rioting In th strike district has
been reported. The men' leader hav
called a conference In th hop of reach
ing a settlement and the whole country
watching th outcome of th oas.
