proposed scales were submitted. The
miners submitted a scale, which they
afterwards withdrew, admitting that
its acceptance was not possible. On
the 12th of April they presented
another scale, which was on the lines
of the 1903 scale, but with certain ad-
ditional conditions as to dead work,

practically mean a 12 per cent advance
over the cost of mining based on the
1903 scale. This scale was refused by
the operators. The operators, however,
offered the miners the following scale,
and stated that they would sign an
agreement with the miners for this
scale, the same to take effect April 1,
1906, and end March 31, 1907.

The miners’ scale committee refused
to accept this scale and agreement pre-
sented by the operators, and the con-
vention then adjourned sine die. The
operators afterwards decided to offer
their employes the 1903 scale of wages
and posted the following:

offer practically the wages the miners
ask, which are the highest wages paid
in 34 years, and to such as do not pay
the checkoff of three per cent it would
mean they would receive the
highest wages paid since 1872.
It therefore, that the
miners are not striking because they
are not offered sufficient wages. Their
refusal to arbitrate differences between
the employer and employes, as set
forth above in the proposition of oper-
ators, in view of the continued efforts
of the union, through John Mitchell,
for arbitration in the anthracive region,
has caused the operators to question
