done whatever It was practicable to do
to aoqualDt themselves with the con

The commission In passiiiR iipn tli

the Miners' I'nion, says:
"The commission is constrained to
decline making any award which
would compel an aKieemont hy the
operators with the Untied Mino Work
ers of America; for. however. Import
antly that order may have participated

victory for the miners, and 1 am
pleased wi'h it," snid President John

pleased with the c nv,i..issiiin's awards,
and I am sure tha they are." he said.
In riply to a question as to whether
the- miners were Riven as much as
had been hoped for, Mr. Mitchell an
swered after an instant's dclibr ration:
"1 do not care to say."
"The most Important feature of the
awards." l:e continued, "is of course
the increase of 10 per cent, given the
miners. This will result in an annua
increase in the wages of the 140,001)
anthracite miners of Pennsylvania ot
$G, 000, 000. The sliding scale provided
for by the commission is very satis
factory. Inasmuch as a minimum of
$4,50 per ton is fixed. With white aeb
coal at 5.50 per ton at tidewater, the
increase provided for in the sliding
scale will be equivalent to 20 per rent,
ntfir- fin the miners' wafes."
Presar,! Mltihell was asked If he
was disappointed because the commis
sion di i not recognise the union for
mally, and he replied that he was not.
because the decision of the commis
sion and Its swards were in themselves
rer-opiiitinn of the power and Influence
of the United Mine Workers
"A"-r the increane 4f wages given
't' luiM is," said Mr. Mitchell, "tbi
most important of the awards, from
the rtiinurs' standpoibt, are the ones

for a hoard of conciliation. The award
