INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. March 24. After
belns: in Joint conference since Saturday
afternoon the coal operators and miners
of the central competitive district con-
alatlnr of Illinois. Indiana Ohio and
Western Pennsylvania and those of the
Southwestern district composed of Mis-
souii. Kansas Texas Arkansas and In-
dian Territory are no nearer sn agree-
ment upon a wage scale to so into effect
In one week than they were when the
former Joint conference adjourned in dis-
ss ree men t on February 2.
The present wase scale expires next
Saturday and unices an asreement la
reached between the operators and minors
before that time 22S.0U0 union bituminous
miners will be called from the mines In
the States named.
The Joint scale committee of the oentral
competitive district adjourned this after-
noon after being; In session four days
to meet Monday morntna;. when a motion
to resort a disagreement wtll be offered.
and It Is bettered will bo carried. The
session at the Joint conference to rooerrs
this report will according to the present
program bo called to meet Monday after-
During the four days the operators sad
miners have been In conference not a mo
tion of proposition offered by either aids
la every caaa where
offered It has been flaUy refused. The
operators have boon confronted with seri
ous dissensions Is their own ranks. F.
L. Rebtrina of the Western Pennsylvania
operators has agreed to pay an advance
of EH per cent' which la the demand
mads by the miners but the operators of
Illinois. Indiana and Ohio havo firmly re-
fusd to pay any advance. Under the
rules of the Joint committee the votes
ot both operators and miners must be re-
corded as unite and the division of oper-
ators has resulted in the detest of every
motion not favorable to all ot them.
BITTERN ESB AMONG OPERATORS.
The meetings of the Joint scale com-
mittee have been marked by much bitter-
ness. Mr. Robbtns has remarked that ho
intends to pay the Increase in wages
ssked by the miners not only In the mines
of the Pittsburg Coal company of which
he la president but also in his own mines
In Western Pennsylvania Ohio and Illi-
nois. Independent operators in Western
Pesnaylvsnia represented by G. A. Ma-
goon have announced through him that
they will pay the advance If Mr. RobMns
dots. Other Independent mute owners
have signified their Intention to pay the
advance If their interests will allow and
President Mitchell has declared that ao
settlement will be made unless aa ad-
vance in wages is given.
It Is freely stated that both operators
and miners are playing a waiting game
as each side desires to throw upon the
other the responsibility for s strike. F.
L Robblos of Pittsburg is doing all la
his power to force an advance In wages
In all the States but the operators of
Ohio Illinois and Indiana are equally
firm in refusing te pay any advance. .
When the Joint scale committee reports
a dieegreement to the Joint conferenoo
the fight will be renewed upon the floor
and the finality will then soon ' be
