An immense crowd was in the dis

Washington, D. C, Nov. 11. Re
corder Wright made public this morn
ing Baer's" answer to President Mitch
ell. It is a general, denial of each
clause of Mitchell's' statement. He
characterizes the demand for an In
crease of wages as arbitrary, unrea
sonable and unjust. Denies that there

Ho Is positive that tho present
wages are sufficient to offset the in
creased cost to sustain the miners
by American methods of living. He
further says that there Is no other
mining region In the world where
there are so many comforts, facilities
for education and genial, advantage
ous, profitable employment. No
children are employed at a younger
age than provided by law.
He sums up by saying that any In
crease of wages means an increase
In the price of coal to the public,

with those using bituminous.
The United Mine Workers Is pri
marily a bituminous organization and
bituminous competes with anthracite.
Since the advent of that Order into"
the anthracite fields business condi
tions were Intolerable. The output
was decreased, discipline destroyed
and strikes were almost of dally oc
currence. The men worked when
and as they pleased and the cost of
production had been greatly increas
ed. He avers that the commission's
investigation concerned matters af
fecting men as employes only, thus
excluding the United Mlno Workers
of America from any part or recogni
tion in the proceedings.
"When a labor organization is cre
ated and limited to the workers of
the anthracite fields, which will obey
the laws of the land and respect the
rights of every man to work whether
he belongs to a union or not, and
shall honestly co-operate with the em

ficiency and discipline, then trade
agreements may become practical.

much exposure to tho flro wero ablo

tho Eighteenth Infantry in tho prov

"It has thus been shown that Eight
