I handed Pierce ihe knucks'und told

. It is reported that atooe the exciting
events of organising work in Terre
Haute, 'Manager T. F. Grover, of the
traction company, waa^ arrested and
thrown into tho detention cell, without
hood, on January 26th, charged with
violating a city ordioaaoe Iby making
a cut-in a street pavement without ob-
talnlng a permit His roleaoe from
jail was obtained upon a wit of ha-
ibeas corpus. Throe of his workmen,
amrested et -the same time, wero al-
Cowed to remain in the detention cell
It seems, that -previous to the movement to arga&iise, tho manager had
•been running things his own -way In

We learn tliat no dividend will be paid on tbe
slock of this company, and that the prospects for
tho future ave not rosy, wliich fact no doubt will
l«j used at some future date ns a reason why the
niiiKi workers must be content; lo economize, or accept a stationary standard of wages. Three years
ago, the historic statement was made that coal was
being sold to the G-. N. for one cent less than it
eost to mine. In spite of tliis, however, the company has miucd'l,166,378 tons of coal, or about one
hundred thousand tons more than last' year, and
still made a profit. However, the delightfully optimistic statement is made that "the company will
soon be on it good financial basis," and having regard to this, there swens to be no,> reason why the
mine workers should regard the absence of dividend too seriously. It must be understood, TIIERK
IS NO ABSENCE OP PROFITS, and the aequatio
state of the company stock may reasonably be. held
responsible for.absence of dividends.*--
Considerable interest centres! at present around
the Interstate Joint Conference of Coal Operators
and the United Mine Workers of America;Qfficials,
now being held iii Chicago, and to which District
President J. E. Smith has been called to .-take part.
The object of this conference is to,.endeavor to
arrive at an agreement on wages aud other conditions affecting practically the whole of the membership of the United Mine Workers of America.
In the meantime,'however, it is interesting to observe the literary and mental gymnastics of certain,
scribes, who espouse the operators' cause,   To be
generous, some of their arguments are remarkable
for their lugubrious contradictions.   The Coal and
Coke Operator and Fuel Magazine has an article
with the caption1 "The Situation as Wo Sec It
And it certainly is as ''thoy see it.**   In the course
of this article, the journal has the following:
"Among those arc, first nnd foremost, a four-
year period  of  agreement,  principally for. Iho
reason that this -would bring about the ending
o? the term in a non-presidential election year;
but also becaiiKw it would assure a fixed wage
cost, insofar as actual wage payments enter into
mining cost, for that period, nud this would lead
to tho. making of fueling contracts for at least
that long a time.
"Second, the omission from the articliwi of
agreement of the choek^nff provision. This is
essential, it is right, and it ih technically unlnw-
. ful to include it. Moreover, it suggests litigation
by those upon whom strikes have been enforced
to recover dftinrigoR from those operntors who
assent to this, inasmuch as thc money derived
by the union by the. withholding of earnings for
union purposes from employees is largely wed
for the pur(mno of fomenting strikes jind of i-aus-
ing trouble, annoyance and loss to those upon
whom auch war is made. Regarding this prac-
' tiee, but one thing need* to bc ha id, which in thnt
any organization that cannot rely upon its constituent* to support it is unworthy of support,
and should tlio of the inanition which would certainly follow refusal on the part of the employ*
era to act aa a collector for the union from which
lh«y all ttt van-Mis and fivipteni time** miffer.
They furnish the finances of warfare upon them*
Th* last sentence of the above ia certainly the
"miuch piquant©" ot th* article, and i« •*» ludif*mu*
an to nearccly warrant notice, but is there ai* many
tndividtwla who never attempt to analyw the «itn«-
ttoti and will only view It through master claaa
gla**c*, we will, for their Iwnefit, endeavor to t»x-
Reverting to the first quoted paragraph, and tht
contention "that a four-year period of agreement
would assure a fixed,,wage .cost, and lead to thq
making of; fuel contraiJtsi for at least that long a
"time," we have little to say other than if the operators can succeed in fixing up food contracts,fpr
a like»period, the worker might be persuaded to
take « chance. Granted,-of^course, that food'is not
the <mly:-necewsi>ty of life, as the residents of "Fer*
,nie wilPhave experienced within the last few days.
-But-for,argument sake, we will presume that if the
operator can control the wheat and provision. Markets, and,secure for the worker fixed prices for
these commodities, that an agreement for an extended period might bc considered.' We do not,
however, think that the coal operators would be so
presumptive as td offer this, and just so long as
labor ranks as other commodities, so long will the
worker have to safeguard.his interests, and very
■varefuilly consider 4he length of any contract
agreed upon. .
Referring to -the second paragraph of fhe quotation which deals with the check-off, it is here where
thc editor, brings up the sauce. The suggbstion
that litigation by those upon whom strikes have
been enforced to recover damages froni Vhosc op-*,
(-rotors wh-o assent t& the check-off may be law",
but at the same time is a most puerile quibble. \Vith
equal force it may be said that the miner, by digging coal aud permitting the accumulation of coal,
so placing in thc operators' hand a weapon whereby he can control the markets and dictate to tlie
worker, is technically guilty and responsible. In
fact: further on in his article, the writer points out
that, those operators who have laid up a store, of
coal in anticipation of a severe winter (and we
might add in event of labor troubles) hre the element of danger to an amicable agreement.
"They furnish finance," etc. This is one of the
most deliberate distortions of truth that the e3itor;
could hftve been guilty of. The operators no more
furnish i the finance.of warfare upon themselves
than do the mules employed to haul the coal supply
the steam to work the hoist. The funds collected
by the coal companies are deducted from the men's
wages. This is lU'oney earned by the worker, and
when the worker ceases to work, the company ceases to collect; and what' is more important still,
ceases to' earn dividends. . When the men strike,
the mines furnish' nothing—and the operators as
much.' - „",;,,.       .   , v '       .       , c,
The check-off sytsem is peculiar to the mine
worker for -many reasons, the principal one being
that owing to the number of foreign speaking brothers, and the difficult in collecting from them individually, the system of deducting their dues from
their.wages offers the readiest and easiest method
for  collection.   Another  point that the worthy

writes should bear in mind is tliat the. coal operators are not in the habit of working for charity, and
thousands of dollars have been collected in the
shape of commission. Let the reader look at it
from either end, he will readily see that thc worker
furnishes the sinews of war for both parties.
The operators' associations have thpir own
method of collecting dues, andthese are uo less arbitrary than the mine workers. Let any company
break faith with the association, and the management of such company will speedily become aware
of their position. Right here, locally, we.have had
this demonstrated to us. when thc largest anfl
strongest company in the Pass broke away from the
fold, but was only too glad to be reinstated in .the
Western Coal Operators' Association. Under ex«
isting conditions no association or union can afford
to neglect the financial end of tl»e.".inain,w*4 nnd
thc method of collecting hns nothing nt nil to *h
with the principles of the United Mine Workers of
America, " ■
(,On the operators' side there is not entire unan.
iniity of opinion," which statement doe* not sur-
I>rine us. However, it is rather a hardy admission
on tlie part of this journal, wbo, state* that the
miners arc so anxious to cffwtnnte peace, But the
worker is rapidly eduenting himself to understand
the various phase* of capitalistic production, und is
in * mui'h better positron to review the operators'
side thnn many of those gentlemen are themselves,
The most pathetic portion of thia effusion is thc
usual sympathetic chord struck by the witor when
he reviews the pomibility of suffering among thc
wives and families of thu mlnetforkew should they
strike. Did wc not know these philanthropists
and the consideration and regard they have for the
mine worker's family (note fleneral Chase's recent
action in Colorado in destroying the strikers' tent*
and robbing them and their families of shelter) we
might be tempted to regard them in the light of
benefactors. It ia bat another move to instill fear
ami dread in the heart of the mine worker*, and
ho far no the coal operators are ".im^rned. he awl

of Welsh? Miners
At a oo-affarenioe held on February 2
and 3 af the South Wales Miners' Fed-
oration the delegates considered 17
reoomimeiwlations, -aU of them dasignr
ed to insure greater -safety in 'mimes.
Nearly 160,000 mueuxbers ot the Federation weme represented by 255 deHo-
gates. WiUdaim Brace, M. P., the presi-
den-t, imipressed upon- the conference
tbe necessity of the British Govern**
meat taking action to amend tihe law
in order to secure further protective
measures. He said .that during 1912
there hed (been 12 explosions, result-
ing im the --death of 461 persons; 591
■accidents caused Iby falls, which wore
responsible tor 664 deaths; 73 shaft
aoddemts iwitth 96 deaths, and 384 other accidentia with 400 deaths.
The proposals aa to addttdonail safoty tockide the following:
1.—AM .toonis to (be dust-proof, and
not filled--higher .than top-Jevel, so as
to admit of covering.
2.-—Workmen to have the right of
appointing and controlling colliery
tho mem, these to he .prohibited Cram
pemforaaliig othor duties than attending to tho safety of tbe mine.
3.—That -U, 'be compulsory to fill up
or stow all -gob wastes, overhead war
camaies and disused working -places.
4.—-The districts to be asked to appoint fuH-t&me workmen examiners
under section 16 of the Coal IMtnes
6.—-That overhead rollers or sheaves
te prohibited.
6.^-.That ■Chere 'be a total prohibition
, ot Ihe use of ony Inflammable or oom-
buobSbte material in the oonstnwfcloii
ot tatoke airways.
7.—That wo prose for the uso of «lr
eotric. lamps in mines, provided that a
■gao-testtag lamp is available for use
la every working place.
8.—-A considerable increase in the
nomlber ot inspectors, sufficient to enable at -least monthly inspection' of
the ctoMderies. amd the result of thoir
enuniin-aitton to be posted at the pithead. Appotatanemts to ibe made from
MBOtugst ithe workmen.
9.—No small coal -to he kept hi the
mine; all ooal 'produced to be sent out
' 10.—AM -main roads to -be well watered, or other effective moans used
for rendering .harmless the ooal dust
of the .roadways, -roofs and Bides.
11.—AH working places to 'be idfle
for edgh/t boons out of 24.
12.—Emergency safety-doors in -all
main intake airways, as near iwortatog-
ptooea as practicable.
13.—Haulage of coal in return air-
ways -to be prohibited.
14.—Workmen to have the night to

to sopensette main-and-tail rope.
16.—That it he compulsory to provide "waiter rones," i. o., oomplete por--
TSom^ or roadways satiwated wMEiwa?
ter'ta all intakes, returns and tworking districts.
One suggestion was as to proMMt-
ta-g tbe use of electricity in mines;
hut this was deterred Jtor •oonsa^era^
tion at tho annuaj, conference to
March. Restalobion on shot-iffaiiig was
a question) delegated to the exeoutiye
(board. V '   -.
The question of .banksmen's -wages
also came up -for consideration, the
claim of, this section of tihe -men iber
ing -not only for bobber iwaiKs but -a-lso
for shorter 'hours. A joint committee
of ithe Conciliation Board had *Ms
.matter under discussion' for 18
months:, and agreement -was reaOhed
as to -hoars and general wndiMdoinis,
ibut there is a deadlock on the ques-
•tikxn of wages. Twenty meetings of
the joint oommittee were heW, and
the details of about 60 collieries dealt
with. ft was stated that hours .were
tou-nd to ibe 12 per day or 12 iby day
and 14 hy night; and the provisional
agreement arrived at was thet the
■hou-na should' he reduced to nine <vt all
coHderiee. ' Deoielon of ithe conference
was postiponed until a further mee-ttog
of ithe Conciliation Board1.
The refusal of the mine owners to
accede to the new schedule of -rates
for new <work, which marks a -material
advamoe opon 'present rates, was also
'brought before the conference, the opposition of tho owners having prevented new price lists Ibeing signed in several places. It was decided to .bring
.this question again Ibefore the lodges;
and tho executive council recommen*
ed that an additional 6 pence per
month <be paid >hy each member; the
whole -matter to ibe discussed at tho
eooufil conference in March. Tho <re-
-eommendiaiblon iwas accepted subject
to a -ballot upon: the .proposed increase
of -contributions,
The night workmen's demand' for
payment of six turns for flvo was approved, the extra turns to toe divided
end -paid ait the rate of one-fifth for.
•each turn 'worked.
The council will submit to ithe employers a proposal that the period -for
averaging ithe' wage-rate under the
Mintoam Aot be on© week.
The executive council twas asked to
fix a date for general "show cards"
and' tho Minors' Federation of Ureas
Britadtt, H was resolved, sh.ould- he requested to consider tihe advisability
ot'"hot entering into further ' agreements with -employers for regulation
ot wages unless it "be 'made a condition of employment that aiH workmen
shall >be .members of the -contracting
party, namely, the Miners* Federation.
Vernon Hartshorn, as one of, the
aniners' leaders, has taken a leading
■part, in directing particular attention
to the probabilities ef industrial ■6om-
iflM .when the present Oon<aU9atioo

states (that the first step towards joint

Graft at Quebec
A sensation has been sprung in the
province of Quebec .oy the Montreal
Daily Mail, the now morning -paper ot

'The ipaper, or .parties backing it, has
•pent fifteen or twenty thousand dollars to uncover bribery in ths Quebec

It has ibeen long considered that

Capitalism depends upon tito robbery of the working class on tlie one

It unions grow stronger and revolutionary, tdie domination of the master

Keep Agoing-Keep Well Dressed
If women did not have a clear notion of What
clothes really mean, what would men look like
nowadays* In the beginning nearly every youth
tries to look his best for the sake of some raembet
of the opposite sex. After he is married his tendency is to revert to type. It is a pretty hard
struggle for same women to keep their husbands
well dressed, even when money isn't the moist serious factor.
Don't get sloppy! Don't have your wife nagging
you to get some decent clothes. You can't afford
to. Hother? It's no bother if you say to us—
% "Here, you've got to dipss me and keep me well
dressed." You say the word, we'll do the rest because we've got 20th Century Brand.
We carry the well known Jefferson lioots; every
pair guaranteed to give perfect satisfaction.

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor, Distriot Ledger.
Dear Sir,—-Perueing tbe notes of
tbe ddstriot camps 1n tbe Ledger, I
notice thst aevem} Locals have a big
grouch oo account of tiie action ot
tbe convention with,reference to tbe
unemployment, ot their members. I
aim surprised to tresr.sucb howls being railed after tbey bad been good
enough to endorse tbe candidate ot
the capitalist class at tbe last provincial election, and thus voted for a
continuance ofthe prosperity (?) tbat
they thw bwl-r-and that th«y still on-
joy! Kb? I'mey,state'tbat ln my
opinion It wss tbe first convention to
ufitly firtr-icnvlpftgp t/tt tnahil'ty to
f!«»al with- th* question of un-emi»loy-
men* n,nong the •membership, ro^g'-
bly it the growl is sustained around

■certain, however. an4 thst !«: llav'nit
t'kcied the nominee or the capitallM
out by your correspondent, tbat the
boys are going to be trained to aboot
their parents}. Xo sucb thing. Tbe
minds of the boys are going to be oc-
ompted wdth wim subjects a* medical
knowledge-, cfoservence, bow to be of
use, tbe principle* of honor and truth,
etc. I need only add that this is
going to the root, of another matter
wbicb be bring* ut>. Instead of attacking tbe segregated district, where,
Cod knows, those wbo live there are
more sinned egainat than sliming, let
us get the boy» and instil honor an-i
truth ond rightewsne-sa into their
mlnde, tbea there will be no segregated district to do away with.
