to adopt: agreement, but at'meeting today arranged,for by president of Dis.
18 and'President of Western Coal Operators association for the purpose of
completing agreement as arranged for
before adjournment, President Sherman admitted that referendum vote
was in favor of agreement but declined
to complete same alleging that as he
had in the meantime made a different
agreement with the Crows Nest Coal
Company, who are not members of our
association, he must have that agreement and that he would sign no other,
and thereupon withdrew from the .conference with his associates. This action
a complete surprise to the operators
whose representatives were present to

, -Being an attempt to make answer to
International Pres. Lewis' telegram of
inquiry of April 2nd, not from the possibly prejudiced standpoint of District
President Sherman, biit from the impartial point of view bf the men actually barred from work as a result
of the non-renewal of tlie'biennial contract between operators and the minors:
"We your committee, beg to report,
as follows:     ■ -   .
In taking-up the matter laid before
us we have gone over it with the idea
of bringing before this convention all
the information'that can be gathered
^uegarding-the-present-sltuation-in-this

any definite recommendations, but
merely wish that this convention shall
thoroughly understand the position we
are. in at this'time;  '".      ..-'""'
Going back to our first meeting in
Maeleod on the 2nd of March a proposition was handed to the operators by
the Miners scale committee. Included in this was the necessary preamble
to make' our agreement legal and binding upon,both parties;
In replying to the proposal, Mr.
Stockett, President'of.the Western Coal
Operators association, said (regarding
the. first five clauses which constituted tho necessary preamble):
"We.understand that those clauses
are Inserted toy lho purposo of making our agreements legnl and binding
on both parties.
"Previous'to this wo havo boon practically at the mercy of tho miners, being In tho position of a responsible

proposals for discussion which the operators absolutely refused to discuss,
stating that "they were,there to sign
up the agreement as it stood."'
Unde'i* these conditions we consider
that the entire blame for the non-pon-
tinuance of operations lies with the
operators, seeing that they had already
agreed that we should have the legal
and binding agreement. The statements by the operators to International President Lewis were not true and
wero made with the object of discrediting the miners.
Re the information that international board member Morgan was able
to give to President Lewis, we may say
that Mr. Morgan was hot present on
the 2nd of March when the preamble
was dealt with; and since the matter
was laid over until the proposed agree-
,ment_,was_bi'oughLup_for_ratificati6n,,
Morgan could not know the understanding on these clauses and is therefore exonerated from blame for that
phase of the difficulty..^•,.-.._,„;. ' -|
'""Taking, the'foregiiig ■ '*eviaencfe"'into'

As the action taken by the district
officers was thc only one that could
be taken to protect the interests of
the Mine Workers, of this district, we
therefore recommend to this convention that wo endorse such actions as
have been taken; and we further recommend that tlie full sltuatl6n.be
placed before International President
Lewis showing whero not only have
tho operators broken faith with the
officers of district 18; but havo also
wrongly stated their own position to
President Lewis for the purpose of
discrediting tho organization.

THE STRIKE SITUATION
On another page will lie found the history, by
documents, of the present in dust rial dispute, involving non-continuance of work in certain mines
controlled by an almost negligibly minority of the
now hopelessly disrupted Western Coal Operators'
Association.
The careful scrutiny which it is tlie duty of
all fair-minded investigators to give to these documents will disclose the fact that all the inconvenience occasioned to the public by unsettling'rum-
" ors j all the loss to the Operators themselves from
. interest charges accruing upon idle properties and
from the inevitable and costly deterioration which
comes to such properties as a result of their   not
3 being continuously worked; and all the uncertainty
brought upon tlie men by the non-continuance of
work and all the actual monetary loss involved iii
the summoning and holding of a three days convention, are to be attributed without room for reasonable dispute to three main causes.
(1) The short sighted greed which impelled the
Mine Operators to attempt to take hasty advantage
of the illness, and consequent absence from negotia-
• tions, of Argus-eyed President Frank II. Sherman
of District 18; and, in the mental confusion begot
ten of thatcill-considered haste, "to press forward for
submission to thc various local unions a document
District President, found themselves without occasion to" make hasty departure from the scene   of
action—a peevishness which combined in    them
with, the natural obstinacy of tlie human animal to
cause thein to: not only, refuse and ■•reject all dis-
cussidns of President Sherman's well, meat*t •>ver-
tiires for the remedying of ihe legal defects of the
tentative .proposals which they had caused to   be
submitted in such hasty fashion, and in such half-
baked form, to tlie various Miners locals, but also
to attempt tb turn .District President    Sherman's
flank by sending to International President Lewis
ai. appeal for iiitefventioh>iri form of a grossly misleading and untruthful statement of the real circumstances which marked the final breaking up of
the Maeleod negotiations'.
(3) The ill-considered deference to-the Operators which was displayed by International President
Lewis when on receipt of this side stepping appeal
I from these gentlemen, he neglected to first make
Bure of his ground by obtaining from District Pre-
ident Sherman some knowledge'of what the miners
themselves, might have to say about the, charges
advanced, by Coal Operator Stockett—relying, instead, apparently, upon his ability to construct a
message of ambiguous meaning to justify him in
casting aside the precedent established  in    such
cases by even autocratic John Mitchell's invariable
rule of first consulting the'local officers "before
committing himself to such one sided appeals; and
so sending to Coal Operator Stockett a dispatch
which oil niiscroseopic scrutiny might indeed   lie
construed as not being a betrayal of the cause  'of
his .local fellow unionists, but which the'disputant.
Coal "Managers were none the less able to construe
as a complete and satisfying endorsement of their
position, and to therefore employ as a most effective instrument for the preventing, for the time being, of the negotiating of additional settlements.
The, above categorical statement of thc causes
of the existing trouble has been made simply .with
a view to educating the minds of both Operat'-rs
and Union Officials aiid the public generally as to
the danger of giving way to the weakness*complained of. For the "present occasion these evil courses
have utterly failed of their object.     Thanks to the
foresight and perspicacity of District    President
Sherman, to the loyalty and high principle of the
rank   and  file trade unionists of the District, and
ti the remarkable combination of patience    and
good nature and determination displayed by the
convention delegates ih going thoroughly to the
bottom ofthe controversy, the tide of. battle   has
been'triumphantly turned, . the alleged   "agreement", of Maeleod has been repudiated by even,the
International officials who at the outset were entrapped into a" seeming recognition of it, and the
battle field is now cleared of all smoke balls and
left free for,that steady, advance,"'whicli   under
the_.me_th_ods. sanctioned_by-the public opinion^_of_

working agreements.
, The resolution was unanimously.carried.
EXHIBIT F
Resolution presented by     Delegate
William Graham of Coleman at conclusion of the,Fernie convention    afternoon session of April  I3ti..
Being an utterance intended to clear
away all possible misunderstandings
on the part of the Miners International
board and of the general public, including all interested parties', by placing oiv official record the determination of the officers and members of
District 18 U. .M. W. of A. to retain
abfolu;e control of iheir own local situation-and local interests and to tolerate no divergence on the part, of the
International Board from that strictly
advisory capacity in which, under the
constitution of the U. M..W. of A.
consists their sole status and function
prior to an actual demand upon said
board for assistance.
' Resolved: That District, President
Sherman and Secretary Treasurer Carter be instructed by this convention to
place themselves in communication
with the coal operators with a view to
the re-opening of negotiations on the
lines of the old agreements expiring
March 31st, 1909, but with certain definite amendments; and that they be
empowered (but not instructed) to
take International Board member Morgan along with them."
Unanimously adopted by the convention .
EXHIBIT G
Extract from telegram of April 13
from International President Lewis to
District President Sherman.
Being an acknowledgement by President Lewis of the fact of his.having
been deceived, and his consequent
submission'of the local situation to
tlie untrammeled judgment of his local representative, Board Member Jno.
Edward Morgan. ,     ,.
Indianapolis, IndAprill3
F.I I. SHERMAN
,, Fernie,
Understand now that some,, deception has been practiced. Board member
Morgan has been telegraphed to use
his own judgment, whicli will be approved here.
T.L.LEWIS
EXHIBIT  H
Report of John E. Morgan, sent with
committee to confer with coal operators at Hosmer in response to    request of President Stockett.
«■ Being1 a candid acceptance of    the
_Yiew_of the local district'officials.   . ,'
"I have stated to the operators that
the international organi7.ation     does
not consider the Maeleod document as
an agreement; 'that     the  operators
themselves were to blame by refusing
to appoint a chairman (for discussion
purposes) at the last meeting held at
Maeleod; that it was evident that the
operators had tried to take every tech-
meal advantage of the Miners Scale
committee; and that the international
union would not stand for that kind of.
thing. Therefore the,.blame for the
stoppage must-be placed entirely on
the operators; that I must ask them to
address all future communications' to
the local district secretary treasurer
A. J. Carter. - This they promised to
do."
And so at last, the field is once more
admittedly clear for that honest and
straightforward method of negotiation which should have marked the
proceedings at Maeleod.
