LABOR AND THE
WHAT EX-MAYOR HEWITT HAS
TO SAY ABOUT IT.
Declares That Arbltiatlon Is Not the
Solution to tho Problem Says the
. Operators Aro Only Doing Their
Plain Duty In Declining to Arbi
trate a Question Which Is in the
Domain of Conscience nnd Involves
tho Personal iiborty of the Indi
vidual. At Har JJiiibor, Me., Monday, Abiam
S. Hewitt!' ex-mavor of New York, was
naked w'helhcr aibltratlon was the only
means that tcnulncd wheicby tho
Brent niitliraclto co.il strike might be
ended, and whether or not It was an
ciiuilablc solution of tlio dlfllculty. Ho
You ask whether tho time has not ar
iled foi atbltiatton in oidci to end the
coal atllkc in the antliiacltc lesion. I
think tho time has anlcd when tho plain
tiuth should bo told, ni well to the stillc
iiiB mlnois n3 to tho public, fiom some
lCLORtilzcd advcuito ot Undo oiganU.i
tloni as bciie.llc.lal iirctkIus foi the Im

liion. Fen a quai tei of n tontui y 1 liavo
inilfoinilv maintained tho light and tho
duty of association, both on the pa it of
cinploNcis and employ. Such oiganl
rations, liowevti, must bo foi lawful pur
poses and must look to tho accomplish
ment of icsulls louniUd on Justice When
claims aio made tontiaiy to tho fiintla
mctital conditions upon which society is
founded thc must bo leslstcd at all h i.
aids I am clear1 that tho claims of Mr.
Mitchell and ine in,. i
ho piesldes nio in contravention of tho
pilnelples of fiee i?oei anient and Of tho
ilKhts of men to earn tbcli living in any
lawful way, without Intoifeionro fiom
oijjanlzed laboi 01 oignnlzecl capital.
WHAT MITCH EM j SEEKS
Tho unhappj contioNcis now clstlnB
is not based upon am ic.ison.ible claim
which labui can in ike foi shoitci horns
01 bettci w ikcs it Is tmc that All
Mitchell iilleni's this to bo tho object of
the Htilke but as n nnttci of fact it is
notoiiotis that the leal obiect Is to seciuo
tho lccofintllon of his national oigmU.i
tlim as an authoiity entitled to docldo
upon the utcs ol wages and tho condi
tion of laboi In tho coal Holds wheievor
situated. If this demand bo conceded It
will not be possible foi mis man not hold
ing a union cud to secuic emploment
in the coal Holds This will amount to ti
denial of tho lights of ecij man to toll
his labm In a ficc lnuket Uhc cone"s-f-lon
of this demand will make Ml Mitch
ell the dictate i of the coal business and
put him In tontiol of otes enough to
deeido the nct piesldcntl.il election
Tho light to laboi Is inbeiont in eeiv
human being and cannot bo siniendoiecl
without tho sTciillcp of individual liberty
and of piivato piopeitv. It thciof)ie
cannot be uibitiated any moio than tho
light of a man to his own home if it
t.liall be el limed b an outbldoi who piot
fcis in bin ition An offoi ot aibltiatlon
is alw.ivs atti active, but theio aio many
things which c miiot be submitted to ai
bltiatlon, and among tliem none is ho lm
poitant to tho woikingman as the light
to bell his liboi in a fiee maikct 'tho
opciatois cannot vield this point with
out being dlslnval to the ovvnois of tho
piopeity and to tho woikmon who cairy
on the opeiatlons
reason rort not AnnrrnATiNG.
It would bo fin bcttei to abandon the
business ot mining -intlu.icilo eoal thin
to concede the dem ind of unv m m oi set
of men to clenv the lights ot omplojmcnt
and of 1 iboi upon which the whole stiuc
luio of lice government Is founded, and
to which this count! v owes phenomenal
piogiess In niv judgment, theiefoie, tho
opciatois .ue onlv doing tbcli pi iln elutv
In declining to aibltiato n question winch
is In the domain of conscience and In
volves tho peibonil llbcity ot tho liull
lelii.ii Tho onlv solution of the trouble is for
Mi Mitchell to older tho btilko off with
out deluj AVlieii this Is done, It theio
be giicv.incos to bo abitcd they will bo
ptomptlv adjusted between the local op
ciatois and tho local unions Tho light
ot association is not in question '1 his Is
admitted b both emplojois and em
ploves 'What Is denied, and piopeily so,
Is tho power, b tho Issue of union cauls,
to lefuso cmplovmcnt to non-union men,
and thus, condemn them to osti.iclsm,
starvation and death Such a icsiilt is
nbhoiiont to justice and is fatal to poi
RESUMPTION Or WORK
It Is claimed In some qu.utcis, and al
leged to bo tho geucial opinion, that tho
opciatois ought to lesumo woik without
rcgnid to tho menacing conditions with
which tho anthiaelto coal mines aro now
Furioundcd. Such a nosltton does not

Any claim of tho operators, therefore,
that thev can do with their own as they
see fit, docs not rest upon a Bound foun

of their duty to the publlu they aio com

ditions equally, If not mote, Impoitant to
tho public welfate, they would bo fnloo to

such action. There Is a pilnclplo moio
Impoitant than tho obligation of piivato

set of men not occupying public
ofllco, to decide upon tho conditions upon
which labor shall hcolc Its living, and to
make it subject to a license ficni lno
sponsible lcadcis, whether icpioscntlng
capital or labor, Is In effect, a claim to
tho power of life and death, and can
never bo conceded without a bilbo Mli
render of duty to giecd.
TUG niGHT TO I.ABOn.
The coal opciatois, theiefoie, aio not
fighting so much for the contiol of their
own propel ty as foi tho light of the citi
zen to labor whole ho may llnd employ
ment without Intel ference from oiganUa
tlons or men who have no light to con
trol his fiecdom of action.
Dually, the .claim of the United Mlno
Woikois' oiganlzatlon to contiol the en
tire coal Industiv of tho count! y Is based
upon nn impracticable Idea. Voiy llltlo
knowledge Is, neccss.ny to show that tho
coal legions of tho United States differ
so much fiom each otliei that tho policy
which Is adapted to one Is utteily im
sulted to another. Motcovci, tho aiious
mines differ fiom each other in condi
tions, lequlilng caicful adjustment In tho
wages of laboi, and In some respects in
tho boms neceshiiy to keep thorn in
w oi king oi del. All that a national oi
ganlzatlon could possibly do would be to
suppoit the claim of woikmen who for
any lenson nio dls3atlslied with tho con
ditions which prevail in any p.utlciilar
locality or mine
Hut to call a gencial Instead of a locil
stilko when a local gilevanee is not ad
justed in a sitlsfactoiy way is an otit
lage of such vast piopoitlons that It can
not for a moment bo tolerated bv a fieo
people Moieovoi, in this clij of fiee dis
cussion and the publicity of all the fncts
thiough the nevvsp.ipeis, theie Is no pos
sibility that anv coil opeiator could oi

upon lustlce. Tho coal mines aro all nu

lho consequences of such stiikes aie
so dlsastious, not merely to the pailles
dlieetly concerned, but to the whole com

woi leers and champion top spinners."
The act Is known as tho most ex
pensively dressed neiformanco of its
kind In America today.
The Tanakas' work was thoroughly
appreciated. Manager Dixie was hard
ly satisfied with the woik of thp Gos
sips, Monday night, and immediately
canceled the act after the perfoimance,
and had the Tanakas brought on from
New Yoik, going down personally to
Another New Theater.
Manager Harrington of the Star

Intel esting Stoiy of tho New Chinese
It Is geneially piophc&led by those
who know that Sir Liang Chen Tung,
the now ChlncbP minister, will bo even
a gi cater favmite with Americans than
Wu Ting-fang has been, for it Is b.ilcl
that ho has all of Wu'b piogiesblveiie&s
without any of his pijlng iiuiulsltlvc
ne.ss. As one lady, who met Liang In Lon
don, oxpiobse.s It: "In addition to being
an enteipilslng man ho also has inan
nns," Illustiating this fact she tells nn In
tel esting little anecdote of the new
Chinese diplomat, says the Satuiday
K veiling Post. Liang was attending an
aftcinoou tea In an InipoitaiU Loudon
house. The ho.stcss liiadvcttently put a
lump of sugar and cieam In Liang's
cup. Now tho Chinese under oidinaiy
clicuinstanccs would no moio offend
his palate by putting cieam and sugar
In tea than a Get man would by putting
It in beei. This fact was well known
to the husband of the hostess, who
happened to be talking to Liang when
tho malticated tea was handed him.
"My deal," said the husband, "I am
afijjld you have made a mistake. Tea
should always bo solved plain to thoso
who know how to dilnk It,"
"Not at all," Intel posed Liang with a
most charming bow, "Theie aio occa
sions when its finest flavor is bi ought
out by tho judicious admlxtuio of
cieam and sugai," and ho emptied his
cup to the veiy dtegs.
;Now, that was heroic," declared tlio
Washington lady in telling tlio story,
"and worthy of a Chesteuield."

A btiggestlon to prevent tho slipping
of rugs on polished floors Is vwnth pas
sing on, us this is often a suico not
only of niuioyance, but of positive dan
ger by causing falls. A man who sells
rugs at one of the laigo shops In New
Yoik sas that if a lug is thoroughly
wet on the wiong side and put face
downwaul till dry, it vl not slip. The
explanation Is that the wetting mois
tens usefully tho slightly gummy sub
stanco with which tho wiong side of
the rug is diessed, und which, becom
ing too dry, causes it to slip. Obvious
ly this suggestion is .only of vulue in
case of tugs that have a wrong side.
My fiiend was teaching the primary
class In a city Sunday school. The les
son wits the story of the wandering
Isiaclltcs Who were miraculously fed
"I don't know," sho said, In n soft
aside to me, "Just what manna looks
like, but 1 have this tittle bottle of
homeopathic pills for an illustration,"
taking from her pocket a tiny phial and
slinking it lightly.
She made tltc stoiy Interesting, nnd
every-little face was turned upward
expectantly as she proceeded. Sho
told of tho cloud by day and pillar ot
lire at night, tho coming of the quails
and tho fall of matma, then nrpldly re
viewed the whole, asking questions to
test the attention of her audience.
"And what did the Loid feed tho ehll
dion of Istacl upon?" she asked.
"Plllst" they all shouted, without a
dissenting voice, Hat per's Mugazlnc,

owing to the enormous buying on au up

strength was peislstcnt and widespread.
Tho maikct becamo so honcj combed by
tho closing out of holdings by powerful
speculative interests that It showed a
