At this evening's meeting Alderman Campbell will introduce a revenue tax by-law and it is likely the  councilmen will come prepared to  discuss the electric light question.'

C  Indianapolis,     Feb. -The joint  conference of the coal miners and  operators adjourned at 11.40 a.m.  today, after the chair had declared  lost a motion by L. Bobbins, aPitts  burg operator that the present wage  scale be continued.  President Mitchell of the United  Mine Workers at once called Mie National convention of the organization to meet at 2 o'clock this afternoon.  Mr. Robbins reviewed the differences in the conditions of the miners  now and when the inter state and  joint conference movement went into  effect.  ''You have higher wages and short  er-hours," hc s_id, "Yet without argument, ahd'in the face of all fair-  hess you yesterday met and repudiat  ed a fair proposition. 1 wont to  go on record as protesting aiuiin^t i  such methods. We do not propi-se    .)  to have miners  of other states with J|  conditions     entirely      different   from  ours, dictate as to thc settlement of  affairs in our' district.      Your     pro- ( a  position adopted yesterday .is absurd jjjj  A little section up in Michigan could   -'-  refuse a settlement and tic  up      1 he i j3  ��������� _  whole country."  Mr. Mitchell in reply said: " Wc  have shown by the opernfoi-s* circulars that coal is selling at the r'inps  at from 35 to 50 'cents a ton higher  than it was selling seven months ac:o  ancl that the conditions of their own  trade is highly prosperous. Notwithstanding this we are asked to continue a lower wage scale than we  had  two years ago.  "When we accepted a lower scale  on account of an unfortunate situation existing at that time, we were  promised that the reduction would  be   restored  at  the  next  conference."  .
