How Long Will the Strike Last?
P11KD1CTIOXS aie being made
in many quarteis as to the
length or tin coal strike.
They vary widely. This Is
natural. Theio Is no precedent later
than "77 to guide, and londltloiis now
aie in few lespeets p.uallel lo condi
tions then,
it, however. Is ti lie that long strikes,
like long wai.-, aie less piobahle now
than In foi mer years. The interdepen
dence or industry Is greater. The ma
chinery for holding in check dlsoideily
teiuleiicle- Is much supeilor. We aie
inclined to believe that the spirit of
thilft and ol leluctame lo tolerate the
gieat waste ol a piolonge'd strike on a
huge c.ilu Is mine potent today than
iu the e.nly pel lod of labor stilkes.
I'nder the new conditions surtound
Ing the anlhiacite industiy those who
live In the vicinity of the mines know
the least about what is going on among
rhe poweis that be. Consequently their
piedletinns liavc no moie value than
those made at a distance and fre
quently have le-s. They aie in the
trying position of helplessness to pio
tect their own inteiests or to have a
guiding hand In the steering or tlie
ship which caiiles their weKaie as
ca i go.
Hut looking at the matter dispassion
ately, as one would look at it fiom n
distance, we should be inclined to pie
illet that the question or tlie duration
of the anthiaeite strike depends almost
wholly upon the ability of the strike
leadeis to senile effective co-opeiatlon
among the bituminous woiker". To do
that they must swing out of comfoit
able employment JiOO.OOO men without
gilevaiues as an auxlllaiy to the one
bundled and lorty-odd thousand an
thracite vvoikeis now idle. Kven waiv
ing the bleach of valid lontiacts whlcli
this w ou lil necessitate, and consideiing
it meiely as a mas movement, its
success looks pioblemuttcal, to say the
.Should It succeed, we do not doubt
that the mineis' union would soon
loice the opeialors to terms. Hut
should It rail, and should soft coal come.
In wheie anthracite belongs, cutting
both opeiator and stiiker out olhis
rutiut, it is Inciedible that the stilke
would not hieak speedily.
It is possible that the pioposlllun of
a Joint convention of soft and haul
mineis to ute on the question of a
complete tie-up may be held up beroie
the anthracite vvoikeis as an encour-
agemei.: not Intended to mateiialize
but we do not take such a view of the
oiganUatlou leaders. Vet we aie
it nuk lo lonfess thai we never expect
to see a lomplete suspension or coal
mining in this country not. at least,
until the Is exhausted or Oabilel
blows his tiump.
"It seems to ine, Mr, President, wo
must look at the situation as It Is. AVe
have, the Philippines. AVo have taken
title. We have possession. We have
established government. AVe are estab
lishing law and order. They ate ouis
mils ngalnst all the world: and the
thing for us to do Is to set that house
In order heroic we talk ubout malting
it, disposition of it. AVe 'are doing our
part, and, as i believe, doing It ns well
as we known how, laboring honestly
and faithfully to accomplish just and
pioper lesults, and It will be for those
who como after us In the congress of
the Tnlted States tor a creat many
will come lifter us before' this question
Is acted upon to determine what
shall be done by the government of the
United Slntes; and when they come to
take action the conditions .existing In
the Islands, the feeling or friendship
or of hostility, whichever the case may
be, of that people will undoubtedly have
much to do in determining tlie congress
of the Tolled States as to what action
It shall lake." Senator Foraker.
AVe notice that some supportcis of
Judge Pennypacker aie ciltleizlng Quay
lieutenants In counties which have gone
for Klkin. That is baldly fair. Quay's
lieutenants aie doing the best they can.
Their dllUculty is that the people, are
doing mine.
The Democratic leaders are having
dlfllculty these days in convincing the
Democratic "come on" Unit fusion
gieengoods will be the popular cuneney
iu Pennsylvania.
There Is very little leason to doubt
that labor unionism has come to stay.
Hut It will succeed better by obeying
the counsel of Us conservative leaders.
It Is a pietty thin-skinned kind of
Ameiicanism which finds fault with the
acceptance of Kmpeior AVIIliam's prof
feied statue of Frederick the Great.
Good luck to the joung king of Spain.
May he equal the sagacity and human
ity of bis distinguished mother.
It may yet become necessary to put
a tinift on piincely and grand dukely
Harking back to ancient times, John
Klkin Is not a GlIke-oii.
