trouble lies. "When the miners quit, if
they had gone away there would have

had remained away from the mines,
there would have been no trouble.
To compel the men to work would
be unlawful. For them to interfere
with the operation of the mines is un
lawful. Sympathy is always with the
laborer. If the operators had violated
the law half as often in the present
strike as have the miners, the coun
try would have risen up in arms and

The officers can only remain and pre-i

they will either have to come to the

have to come to their terms. No one
can compel either to do that which he
does not want to do, so Ions as each
attends to his own business.

The only course to pursue is to apply

Settling the strike is not within the
province of any man or officer. It Is
with the men who have differences
