j "Mr. Mitchell apparently thinks that
the control of thu mining operations
rests in tho hands of ono or two per
sons, notably Mr. Morgan, or tnat thcro
Is a trust of somo sort which can do
cido tho wholo question, whou, as a
matter of fact, there aro onlv three or
four of tho transportation companies in ,
which any one concerned has any in- j
fluence, and tbov do not represent 80
per cent of the whole anthracite ton
nago. More than 100 different com-;
panics and individuals aro interested 1
in mining tho total touuago, and no
ono man can control or have tho slight
est influence over their action. '
"One thing tho companies aro ap-,
parently agreed upon Is that thoy will
not agrco. Efforts have been mado for
yeirs to get somo plan to which all
could agree to control tho tonnage, so 1
that fair prices could bo securod for a ,
product which requires so largo an '
investment of money with such great
risk to tho labor employed, as well as
tho capital employed, but effort after
effort has failed through failuro to
agree on a plan that would not violate
tho laws and to which nil could agree.
"But Mr. Mitchell comes horo and ,
Bays in effect that no miueworkcrs ,
shall go to work until every operator
does just exaclty wbat the other does
and that the Lehigh and Schuylkill :
men must have a new basis before the j
men in the Lackawana and Wyoming
regions can go to work. :
"The United Minoworkers will lay
themselves open it they have not al-
readv done so to the chargo of being ,
the largest and most dangerous trust to J
the public welfare that has over exist
ed and the organization will make the
mistake of all others that of going too '
far and using its power to hurt tho ;
public, as well as those directly interested.
"Our company will be glad to dis'
cusa the matter with
when they aro ready to meet us with a
view of going back to work, without
regard to what Schuylkill operators
may do. The strike has already cost
us a great deal of money, and tho men
much moro, as well as loss of trade,
which wo may not recover in years.
In the meantime soft coal mines are
working night and day filling the place
of anthracite coal."
