Owners and Labor Fail
To Reajh Agreement
In Third Conference
Held At "Capital
Washington, July 8. (By As
sociated Press.) Deadlocked over
a basis of negotiating a settlement
of the bituminous coal strike, the
conference of operators and miners
workers officials accepted the sug
gestion of government representa
tives today and, adjourned unti
next Monday.
Lines of differences were drawn
more tightly than ever today when
representatives of bituminous
operators and officials of the strik.
ing coal miners union went into
their third joint conference in
company with secretaries Hoover
and Davis.
Prior to the meeting ifwas evi
dent that the operators intended to
force some sort of a conclusion
today without yielding to their re
fusal to meet the union for the
purpoes of making up a national
or semi-national wage scale. From
the views of John L. Lewis, presi
dent of the United Mine Workers,
sider It necessary to prolong the
it was evident that the miners con-
strike rather than agree to nego
tiate for district wage scales.
Operators Are Defiant
At a lengthy meeting by them
selves, the bituminous operators'
representatives prepared a resolu
tion incorporating their view, and
although its detail was held
confidential - it was understood
that if the joint conference broke
up today, the , operators had de
termined to open a large number
of union mines in former union
territory on a non-union basis on
The principal property so under
stood to be ready for opening was
a 6,000 ton dally capacity mine
of the Pittsburgh Coal company
in Pennsylvania. Various other
mines in strategic points through
out the central coal field were also
understood to be selected for im
mediate operation.
Officials Are Hopeful
The, old wage scale calls for a
base wage of $7.50 per day under
ground, while the mines that will
open are expected to offer to
miners the 1917 scale, which has
a base of about $5 a day undbT-
ground. Both the union officials
and operators seem to be fully In
formed of each others' determ
ination, and the only doubt re
mainder concerned the govern.

Secretary of Labor Davis appear

of the impression that the admln

before letting the gathering fail

Action of Way Men Is
Now Awaited By Heads
of Lines Affected By
General Strike.
Chicago, July 8. (By Associ
ated Press.) Railway strike In
terest, which centered over the
week-end on the shopmen 's walk
out Saturday, today turned to
developments dependent upon the
canvass, at Detroit, of the strike
vote of 400,000 maintenance ot
way employes and acting by their
union officials.
A potential railroad crisis far
more acute tnan any foreseen
threat to traffic by a strike ot
shop crafts alone, hinged on the
couree taken by the maintenance
of way men. A strike by main
tenance employes would double the
number of railway strikers and
more than double the effectiveness
of the suspension.
Situation Is Acnte
Should the clerks, freight hand
lers and signal men join the walk
out, the total number of railway
employes called off their jobs
would aggregate approximately
Edward F, Orable, president of
the maintenance employes, who
returned to Detroit after cohfer
ences with officials of other
unions, kept his promise to the
railroad labor board to hold strike
orders in abeyance until today at
least, although the vote of his
union was reported to be over
whelmingly in favor of a Btrike.
The key to the strike situation was
apparently held this morning by
President Brable upon whom hope
was banked of averting furthei
walkouts. t
Union Men Pleased
Claims on the completeness of
the effectiveness of the shopmen's
strike differed according to the
sources. Union officials asserted
that the walkout was virtually
100 per cent and would seriously
hamper railroad operations. Rail
way executives on the other hand
tentatively fixed 90 per cent as the
maximum number ot strikers
among the 401,000 men In. the
