Night, before last, the few , people
'that.were • still'on*the, street were
agreeably surprised to hear .that a
settlement of thc strike' trouble- ,bc-
iwech. the.',company and thc union
hiid been arranged between Mr; Lindsey and Mr.-.Burke. The latter gentleman had been away at Michel and
Col-man ;,ince lasl Thursday, and had
relumed to* town .'011 "Monday's westbound local. Mr.'lYcwis Stockett also arrived,on' the same train, .and it
is said'iiiat it was through his"'iiicd-'
ialion that the incetiiig of Mr. lliirke
and Mr.  Wndsey'Vas arranged.
Mr. Unrke had gained,, by his ipiiet"
'liraiinc'r' and adroit: ■ handling' of''' th'e
union's case, the, confidence of' thc
ollicers and men of the union to a
marked degree, - and his speech, in thc
opera' house' last, week "was one of thc
most masterful ellorts ' ever listened
to by a Feniie] audience, and gained
for, hiin the "respect of the people at
ljirSc-       ,,      • -,.*'.      .'
But most unfortunately for everybody, ^Mr.. Burke seems to have lost in
one .evening all the prestige he ".had
.gained,, for, his. order andwits cause in
the minds of tlie'workmen 'and "the
public. ■' '„-',"      **-..,
By a referjnce"lo.tlic outline ofthe
agreement ai rived at' Monday night.,
it will"be seen that Mr. Burke had
gained nearly everything he had beeii
contending for excepting that he consented to cancel thc signatures of all
thc men who had signed the check-off
clause since lhc'iitli,6f -Scpteinber.
'Mr. Ivindsey,-agreed- to'amend tlie
check-off Lla-isc so that' there' could
ie no mislakc'as to its incaning that
.1 signature to it meant, that A the
signer-was'bound by it to'the end of
tli. agreemont.of May, 1905. He also
agrecil;to drop, "his demand for indemnity for 'damage,- and to pay over,
to the union"''tIi___.ducs_J)elongiug___to.
it,, and.had ,' it not' been that ,Mr.
J?urkc'-,liad''consented *' to" the, .contention of Mr. "Liiiiiscy that' those," now
famous,,.promises were true, without
Also staling that Mr, I/indsey' had also - made'' promises anil statements
which -qualified those'promises,, and
lhat .in-.lrawJ!:g-*-»i-ii:' that original
check-off olaiise Iic'liad failed to make
•rood his promises and i-ccuihiiiciida--
tinus, there would have been ■ no
trouble about the men going back to
work.
■ Mr.  Burke,  most unfortunately for
.doing this'without*  •-.firstA.onsiilling
his, associate National Board Member
Patterson, 'and-in *Hh<*» absence .of. the
district president     aiid local officer's."
ft would'.seem that under the circimi-
stanccs he .'.should have'; consulted his
associates and the officers who  were
so deeply concerned,     before makiiig,
such udniisiions, n- without also citing
the facts for which he hail contended
both before'Mr.'Lindsey and'--before
the. public. -As ,hcciclearly .'showed  in
his. speech last, week,,it-is very easy,
to liiakc statements-and" then,, leave
outJ portions of those statements  * in
such,a way as' to' completely change,
lhe real meaning*of.thpse statements'."
The fact that' Mr. I/indse'y drew,, up
that','original   check-off., clause' by ■-* request of the men", in'^uch a way supposedly as ,tp make each."man    who
signed responsible .'with thc. union 7of:
(icers wlio signed,  and' which he' has
since; cconUnded did   --not 'do' so', ,is
strongly.'confirmed by;-his now.'"-consenting''to the addition of.only a few
words which   ' do make    that    same
clause binding ' as  was requested   ;by
the incn'in' the first place.' '    ,*"'*. ' 4
1It was ptobleniatical as to whether
the men"' and local officials "would'ac-1
cept the' settlement with 'such qualifi--
cations  , as Mr.  Biirkc had -accepted
without  reference ,   to anybody,    but
whatever   .of  probability   there    was
about an acceptance oj, the situation,,
was most effectually'* removed by the
senseless and. wanton maimer in which
these things were flaunted in*the faces
of-the men Tuesday morning by tliat
flamboyant ' '"midnight extra' perpetuated upon    the1 public    by an organ,
that'seems  to  work*.'nights for    the-
purpose  of  defeating-any proposition
which  might )ead' to 'the, resumption'
of work, and the "benefit of   the   public.^        ' .     ,        '' '      " *A;
Gen.   Manager, ** \ Lindsey's  position
completely'vindicated; Burke urged by*(
popular opinion;- '.'She.rman turned-
down, were all expressions .most, admirably suited to the .time and, .occasion for lhc preventing of "peace
and prosperity" anywhere,, much less'
at this particular 'tiiiie, in the -Klk
VallcyA.It is to be" hoped,*': in view "of
tlie'disastrous rc'sult'of the'first - ef:*
fort'of thc organ down street to get
ahead of the Ledger, , that hereafter
it will do its work while awake. ■ '*

parlial paper iti daylight' can be"*'re*
Jiis order,  couiniittcd   the mistake of ;lied, upon ro make blunders', wheu they
try it at night. -    l.    ! '
It- was very doubtful whether the
district and ' local' officers would have
accepted the humiliation which ' had
been heaped upon, thcin by that proposed settlement,-though ior the sake
of peace an'dr the welfare of the men,
they might have been prevailed, upon
to.-,do. so at so great a sacrifice to
themselves had,it not been for the
senseless ilauiitiiig of those t insulting
headlines, before the public. When
the men saw that extra yesterday
morning, there was an end of every
possibility of their going back lo,
work even .though the,local officials
had been v/illing to do so.
'   ' °   , . .     rj> 1,
.- In consequence of;> Mr. Burkc"*s lack
of a little judicious diplomacy at tin'
critical moment, iii not first consulting his associate board member 61
the district or .local officials before
making such a settlement, and the
senseless senility of screaming sensationalism as displayed by, that first,
effort at cctras, tliat extra's statement that the strike was oft arid
peace re'stpred * is'. a most unfortunate
falsehood. - "'
■' Yesterday afternoon Stork's Hall
was .again crowded to the doors with
miners, who in a,closed meeting most
emphatically turned down anyHhing
and everything which looked like an'
endorsement of Stir. Burke's proposed
settlement, and. District President
Sherman and International' Board
Member ■ Patterson . were delegated 'to
proceed at once with' Mr. Burke to
Minneapolis to meet President Mitchell, and lay the whole case -before'
him personally. It is to, be hoped'
that, President « Mitchell will return'
here with these delegates and use his
"best endeavors to bring about a real
peace,.based upon justice and -which
will,last, not , only, till the 31st of
next March, but continuously.
~ TluTTLfTdpr,, wishes-to^congratulate"
the miners who are displaying siich
patience and peace „loving characters
in their robcr actions, and regard for
law. under circumstances that arc so
trying.' ,., ' ' ;     .   ,
To .desist from work while this dispute is going, on, .and to be. peaceful
and manly,, under all circunisidnec's',r,
.will go a long way iu establishing iii
the minds ofthe public that they arc
honest* and sincere in their desire'to
do right. ',.
Be fair, "rip true, and you will, in
the end, win, peace with honor, '

Chairman Moore spent no time, addressing ihe meeting, but went direct;
ly to the business for which it 'had
, .     a. , . ...
been called by introducing Mr. Thos.
Burke, ot Springfield, Illinois, who
has been the 'Dean** of »the- delegation
which > has - been endeavoring' to bring
about a satisfactory''; settlement of
thc dispute between thc management
and the United Mine-Workers to . set-
the 'mines' going" again as soon as

-  Mr. Burke was     greeted- by hearty
applause; by' the large audience    arid
'had-not besn on his feet'ten minutes
before ■ he -had the respect and confi-.
dence of his hearers iu a most re-'
inarkabic degree.' • He said in part:
, "Mr. Chairman Ladies and Gentle-,
men;-  •      -.   •-'-
' Always -hen meetings of this character are e.illed,'it is evidence that
there is something wrong, and I can
assure you ihat it is one of my   un-
, pleasant "lutics to have to* be a party
.to such meetings.   But-someone must
acf'at such times.        "-'   '■'•'
' ,,,-Jri May,   1903,  there was an agrec-
, tnent entered into between the Crow's
' Nest Pass - Coal-Company!" limited,
and the*1 Uni ted Mine-Workers of,Am-
-erica, which ought to have remained
in force until March 31st, 1907, .but
in September last, some misunderstanding --rose as" to the meaning of
- Article '5,' known     as the   " check-off
* clause,   which ' misunderstanding caus;
,   td the mines to be shut down.   '
I,  with my: colleague, Mr.    Sharp,
have been "engaged for six or    seven
days in     nti endeavor     to-so adjust
these misunderstandings as to   allow
A_ of_the_wor_k_JjcinpAtesi____-L__Jn_t   so
shown-,ine what purports,to be a verbatim" report -of these conversations
to* substantiate his statements, and
he. says every word is correct, and
lhat-our delegates say he is correct,
but, gentl.men," our delegates don't
say that Mr. I.indsey's report is correct. They say there-were qualifications to those stnteincnts which ,do
not appear in,that .verbatim report
made out '. y Mr. I.indscy's own employee!
Tkat there were qualifications to
those statements which do not appear
iu that report, they further state
lhat no,one "got nny .statement of the
proceedings.-,of the conference which
led up to Alie adoption of thc agreement as it stands after the first .three
day's sessions. It is easy to omit statements which qualify a promise and
thus'change thc •meaning of the whole
proceedings. ..This the miners say has
been done, and whether or not this is
true they are-,willing to leave .to the
decision of a. fair-and impartial-board
of arbitration, go to work and abide
the result. Or,., we are willing to
leave the decision' in thc hands- of thc
premier of thc province, or to . any
one'he may select.-, '
.We'may be wiong,* but ,we will not
admit we ere wrong1.before wc" are
proven,to be so. ...
I am willinc to submit to any fair
arbitration the,, whole' matter and
will make auy concession consistent
with honor. I don't like strikes and
strife and war, but I will not - lay
down my manhood , and submit , to
dishonorable coi.ditions. 1

day an order was issued by the Company to the .eficct that tlie pumps be
brought up thc slope 500 feet, ' and
that the fans be stopped, thus allowing the mines' to fill" with' water.

" We are anxious to * get the ' mines-
working again for'-many reasons.

continuation of the' strike or lock-out

it, means f.iv.i rial loss to the business'people'of I'ernie];.   '"•" 7
Second, because it means stagnation

upon the -'.--.duct of the labor engaged
in these mines,, and because of the
loss to the stockholders wltos have
placed their money in the shares'- ol
this great company, and lastly, because it means loss and privation to

Well, after these days of .sincere desire to arrive ar.' some evolution of
this ilifiiculty, nnd after having made
oilers'to Submit our case to an imparting board of arbitration, to be
acted upon in the broadest possible,

began.
Gentlemen, I unfortunately am not
the possessor ot a college education,
but I have thirty year's experience ns
a miner, .ind am possessed ol a practical miner's education, nnd I don't
need to bo told what are the rights
ol a miner.
Alter several days of conversation,
we made Mri I.indsey this proposition
'•You pay over to the union the monies you have collected for the, checkoff, nnd which belongs to lite union

Secondly, while' wc were in conference with Manager I.indsey'in his "office honestly endeavoring to ' adjust'
these difier-nces, 'putting '' aside " all'-

After the addi'c'ssesJof bur two National Board , Members from' abroad,
there is not much left for'taic to talk
about. However, I wish to say that
any man .11 my'position'will-'receive
abuse,' especially if'-he undertakes to
do his duly, and that' I shall; do to
the best'. f 'my ability.   *'      '   '    .
People outside ol oiir organization
seem to have got thc idea into^thcir
heads that I, in niy position, can call*
a strike lontrnry" to the will of the
union, Such is not the case, I'am
powerless to do siicli a thing,''aii'd before it can, be' done,; a vote 'to'tlmt
eflcct has to, be taken. .Sp.long^asl
am delegated to "do certain work*and
to fill certain positions, I shall do
that work aiid hold those positions,
But whenever the union voles to ask
nie to quit you will fliid menu active
quitter.
Now, ns tb those promises and
statements' which Mr'. I.indsey talks
about, I wish lb repent that those
promises, whnlevcr they were, were
given upon cert nin conditions, and wo
as uneducated miners trusted to Mr,
Lindsey's I mor to draw up that
check-oil clause so as lo bring, about
the object tor which wc had openly
contended, nnd wc got left;*,
If Mr, I.indsey is afraid to submit
the matter lo au impartial board ,of
arbitration, it looks ns though ho
had a weak cause to present.
It is gciurally conceded that when
a dispute nrl'its between two parlies,
the one with the weaker case is
avers, to arbitialiou,
