WASHINGTON.. Oct. 1 President
Roosevelt ,wlll make an effort to bring
the anthracite coal "mine owners and
tiu ir striking employes together in the
interest of the public frood. This con
clusion was reached after a series of
conferences with his cabinet advisers
i yesterday and today. This decision was
; arrived at when the lawyers of tha
J cabinet Informed the President that
there was no way under the Constitu
tion and Government of the United
States for. Federal interference to end
J" the strike. Every phase of the sltua-
tion 'was canyaEied, and a determina
tion to have the mine operators and
President Mitchell meet the 'President
was reached when It was found no
other method was open.
At the meeting Friday, a line of ap
proach toward ; a settlement of the
strike ! will be detailed hy President
Roosevelt to have both sides come to
gether a men ' and not allow false
pride or; feeling of obstinacy to stand
In the way of a termination of the
great strike which is fraught , with
such, threats of misery to thousands of
.'people. It Is stated by one of the
President's- advisors, that beyond this
the, President cannot go; ' he has no
lowers of compulsion to bring Into play
against cither side, and must rely upon
his iierKU;isIve abilities or his anncaia
to their sense of humanity If anything
tangible is to be accomplished. The
President Intends to lay before his hear
ers ths situation as it appears to him
with all .the prospective horrors that
will follow a fuel famine, and will urge
them In the interests of humanity to
ripen the mines and supply the demand
fop coal. The President has taken!' this'
action because he feels'lt to be hie duty
to do 'V as the executive head of the
nation threatened with great" peril.
Just how, no one can say, though there
is, a suggestion of a, temporary 'arrange
tnent". which , will' tide over the cold
we:thvr. It is 'slated by members ot
-the cabinet that, there Is . ho political
- pui-po!. In Ihis effort. There will be no
one present at Friday a meeting but
ptfcjclcafjy. . -Absence of the eabfnct""wm
give the President an. opportunity, to
do just ivhat he wants, namely to have
a lies it 'to heart talk with the opera
tor and Mr) Mitchell, and to Induce
thrn to talk to each other freely, and
to- reopen fairly, and finally, to agree
if possible, to make concessions on each
rid which will terminate the strike.

Mr. Balfour then announced the de
tails of the agreement wfth the Curfard
Company. ' ,. ' '
With regard to' the shipping combi
nation. Mr. Balfour said he believed
Mr. Morgan had no intention of Injur
ing British Interests, and proof of tnl8
was found in Mr,-Morgan's readiness
to meet the Government on alt points
upon which Great Britain's interests
might seem to be endangered. Mr. Bal
four said an agreement had been ar
rived at with Mr. Morgan, under which
British vessel In the combine would
remain British, not in name merely,
but in reality. A majority of the di
rectors of the new combine were to be
of -British nationality, the vessels were
to fly the British ftsg, their officers
were to be British," and a reasonable
proportion of their crew would be
drawn from the ; same r nation, while
the combine had 'undertaken that at
least half of the tonnage hereafter, to
be built for It should be Brltlsh-built
and fly the British flag. Further, in
the event of the cpmblne uprsuing a
policy hostile to the Brlthm mercantile
marine, Mr, Balfour said, the Govern
ment was empowered to terminate the
agreement, which was for twenty
years' thne and renewable by five
years' notice from each party to it.
