Following Is the circuit ,.o the peo ple: We, the representatives of tho United MlnT Workers of America, In convention assembled, fully appreciating tho gicat responsibility wo owe to our constituents nnd the vast community of which wo are n. part, hereby state, for the information of all who desiro to know, the line of action wo lmvo determined to pursue In the present crisis In our affairs, and tho reasons that have Impelled us to this de cision. As miners of coal, we view with tho exalted prldo of a parent tho wonderful industrial development of the past flf tcen years, with all tho attending influ ences upon the civilization of the present which It has produced, Hut when we look upon the enormous fortunes that our labor has made possible, with the In numerable comforts and luxuries that It brings to the peoplo Lt large, and then examine tho paltry ryttaiiee we receive ns wages for tho labor we have to per form, tho dangcis wo undergo, tho damp ness we must endure, tho foul air wo mist breathe, and the peculiar rheumatio and lung tumbles, superinduced by them conditions, which wo must bear, wo naturally foci that we are being unjust ly rieolt with in the small amount of this world's goods which wo receive In return for so much labor und so many sacri fices. The great combinations of capital which control tho coal industry have become so powerful that no miner can hope, through his Individual efforts, to secure a Just shuro of tho wealth which his labor has produced. The history of Industrial development In the post has shown that when capital combines tho workers must comuine, eise tney win rail one by one, an unpltlcd sncrlliee In the struggle for existence. J'op many years the coal miners of America have been imbued with the truth of this position. The extremely low wages paid to an thracite miners: tho refusal of tho coal companies to have, tha coal properly weighed, or permit the mineis to employ a man, at their own expense, to seo tho coal they havo mined weighed, measured or credjted; Uifs great number of hours the miner must work each day in the most unsanitary conditions: the cruel and Unjust manner In which they have been treated by petty bosses, clothed with a little brief authority; tho arbitrary as sumption by he employers that neither tho miners nor the publlo have any rlghtB that ore entitled to consideration by them, havo forced tu to organize, not foi the purpose of taking from the operatots that which belongs to them, but for the purpose of securing, by business methods, better treatment than wo have received In the past und fair recompense for our jabor. we uuvu sougnt to accomplish this end APPEAL 1 I by conciliatory methods, by submitting?!, disputed points to arbitration, and by refusal to work upon tho terms offered us, commonly spoken of ns strikes, when all other other means of adjusting tho grievances' complained of havo failed, As proof of our sincerity, we point to the joint convention system of adjusting the wages and conditions of employment from year to year, which wo have by our persistent efforts Introduced and llrmly established In a great mnjorlty of tho bituminous fields of the United States. For tivo years we have annually made contracts In this manner with many of the bituminous coal operators, and not withstanding tho allegations that are persistently made that we are an Irres ponsible body, we feel proud of tho fact that, while It may have been to our llnanctal Interests on many occasions to cast them nslde, and we were under no legal obligations to any one, wo havo faithfully lived up to the letter and spirit of every contract we hnvo made, nor shall we violate them now. One hundred nnd fifty thousand of our craftsmen In tho anthracite region of Pennsylvania have sought to secure bet ter wages nnd relief from many galling conditions under which they have been compelled to labor In tho past. They have tried by every honorable means known to civilized men to adjust the grievances with their employers without resorting to a strike. In this they hnvc failed becnuso the employers have as sumed to bo the only parties lntereitcd In all the unctions Involving tho opera tion of the mines, a position that has not been sustained by the conditions existing since a stoppage of work has taken place. Some of the coal operators have been quoted as saying that tho question Is not ono of wages or other conditions of cm ployment, but that they believe It to be an opportune time to destroy the union. Whether they havo made this statement or not, tholr actions Indicate that their purpose Is to destroy our organization. If it Is the purpose of the coul opera tors to destroy our union, then upon the principle that self-preservation Is the first law of nature, we would be fully Justified In taking drastic measures to prevent the accomplishment of their designs. Wc be lieve wo have within our reach the means by which that purpose can be thwarted. No legal power can compel us to work. If wo desiro to remnln Idle. Wo believe that our Interests In the community of which we are a. part, and our obligations to the operators, with whom we havo agreements, require that we shall not inaugurate a general sus pension of work in the coal trade. They may destroy our union, hut they cannot make us violate our contracts. To Continue Struggle. The struggle In the anthracite region will be continued until our demands have been gianted or a competent board of ar bitration has declared that we are wrong. No class of men realizes more than we do the great power of public opinion. Jts influence Is potent for good or evil, In accordance with the manner In which it Is used. No right can bo secured and maintained without its support, and no wrong can ;ong exist thut meets with Its concentrated opposition. Realizing this fact, wo appeal to tho people at huge to bring all possible pres sure to bear on the ofllcers nnd stock holders of the anthracite coal-carrying railroads and other anthracite coal in terests, to treat considerately tho ap peals of their employes for arbitration. The care of 150,000 men and .their fami lies hi a protracted struggle, such as this Is likely to be, will require the expendi ture of a large sum of money In the pur chaso of food. Our own resources nre limited. AVo havo levied a largo assess ment on those of our members who are at work to assist us in caring for those who are on strike. Wo need more money for thnt purpose, and we appeal to every trade union and trade unionist, to every citizen whoso In terests nre Involved, and to every lover of fair play, to nssist us in raising $1,000, 0U0 per month from outside sources, as long as the strike may last. We believe that with this amount of money, together with tho amount re ceived from our own members, we can continue tho struggle until Justice has been secured for the anthracite miners. President Mitchell has made the fol lowing estimate of the number of strik ers and dependents In each district nnd weekly revenues to be derived from each district under the decision of tho convention, together with amounts of weekly assessments by districts.
