From the Philadelphia Ledger.
T IS TO the credit of the strikers that
since tlie striKe began they have

derly and law observing. The In
stances of violence have been not only
few, but comparatively Insignificant. It

which cannot contiuuu If (lie enntendlng
parties fall to end the strike by an iiiulc

abandon their posts on .Monday next. It
win occur inevitably Hint the owners
anil lessees of (he mines w use all
means possible to save their piopeity
from ruin. They will uudoubicdly en
deavor to put other men In tho vacant
places nf the strikers to prevent 1h
destructlM' liimululloii or the mines.
In this contingency lies the danger of
violence and disorder, since, If the strik
ers determine, thut tho positions they
have vacated shall not be tilled bv
others, and seek to make their deter,
mluatliiu good by physical force, the
fitiuulnu will be most gruve. The flood
lug of the mines would not only entail
vimt losses on tho operators, but It would
Impose losocs, possibly as great, upon
the operatives, It the mines are de
slroyed the miners cannot work hi them,
and to the extent of tho destruction
their opportunity to work will lie lost,

would alleuato that popular sympathy
from the strikers without which they
cannot hope to succeed.
Thus far in thu struggle tho miners
huve behaved admirably. They have
not resorted to overt afts,' They have
simply asserted their unquestionable
right In refuse lo work upon terms
which they deem unsatisfactory, They
Jiuvo been peaceable, orderly and law-
alilcllng, Tills lino of conduct they
ehould continue to follow, if they aban
don It nnd refuse to permit the owners
to save (ho mines from doitrutlou by

Awaiting the Next Step.
From the Xew York Tribune.
The eoal strike has thus far been tin
marked with violence. It lias been con
ducted on both sides In a temperate and
orderly manner. The miners have re
frained from working, but hnve not In
terfered with such pumping and engi
neering wmk as Is necessary to keep
the mines In order, and the operators, on
their side, have been content to let the
nilnc- stand. Idle without trying to get
men to till the places of the strikers.
Now. however, n new step Is contem
plated, which must be regarded with ap
prehension as containing tho potential
menace, of a shock which might destroy
the unstable equilibrium of peaco In the
mining region and precipitate grave dis
orders. The engineers, pumpmen and
firemen propose to go on strike on Mon
day next unless their demands are
granted. That ylll' mean one of two
things. Klther the operators will till
their places and so keep the pumps go
ing, or the mines will be- flooded and
damaged to- the extent of many millions
The latter would be a deplorable tiling;
the former would Involve! a grave men
ace to tlie peace. Kor it is pretty well
understood thai the strikers would en
deavor with physical force to prevent
the lining of their places at the engines
and pumps. They realize that In aban
doning the pumps they are playing their
strongest card. The operators do not
iiiiucl, but rather welcome, mere suspen
sion of coal production. They can stand
that a good deal longer than the miners
can. But a menace 'of injury to nnd even
destruction of the mines themselves Is a
very different matter. We may be sure
they will not quietly acquiesce in thai,
but will to the utmost or their ability
seek to preserve their property from
damage. In doing so, they will be en
titled to tho sympathy of all right think
ing men and to the support Of the offi
cers of the law.
For while men have a perfect right to
sit ike that Is, quit work ror cuusn or
for no cause, they have no shadow of
right to destroy or to damage the prop
erty of their former employer's. Morally
there Is no distinction between actually
destroying it and preventing others from
preserving It from destruction. The
man who forcibly prevents tiremen from
extinguishing a lire is morally as guilty
of arson as though he hlnwelf kindled
tlie lire. So men who should forcibly
prevent the manning of the engines and
pumps in the mines would be guilty of
flooding and destroying the 'mines. Just
as much as though they with their own
haiidx turned rivers Into them. It is not
dltlleiilt lo Imagine what would be done
in case a man's housn caught lire and
Ills striking servants violently prevented
Urn firemen from o.sllngulMiIng the
Humes. We shall see next week If such
an emergency Is lo arise in the eoal
mines, .mid. If so. whut will be done
about il. The best Wish the friends or
the striker can make after one for tlie
ending of tho strike-is that they may
keep the pence and respect the right of
other men to work as much as they
demand respect for their own right no't
