English Minimum Wage Bill Passed
Committee Stage After Asquith
Befitted Miners' Demands.
(AsrtCMUd Prtu Report. I
IrDNDON March 13 The government's
minimum wage bill. Introduced by Pre-
mier Asuulth In an endeavor to bring
about a settlement of the coal strike
passed the committee Stage at 1-0 o'clock
thla morning practically In its original
form. Nearly all the amendments sub-
mitted had been withdrawn or defeated.
Whether the bill will ever reach the
statute books Is questionable for It Is
not unlikely that a conference of mine
owners and miners called by Mr. Asquith
for Monday will result in an agreement
rendering the bill unnecessary. In this
case the measure might be withdrawn.
It Is believed labor leaders having failed
to Induce the government to define in the
bill the minimum rates to be paid under-
ground workers would prefer a settle-
ment without legislation.
It Is clear the strike movement Is
weakening and the men are anxious to
return to -work. The attitude of the
leaders Friday was In strong contrast to
the spirit of defiance previously shown.
The situation however changes so rap-
idly that nothing concerning the strike
can be predicted.
Refused Miners' Amendment.
Premier Asquith In the hous. of com-
mons this afternoon refused to accept the
miners' demands for an amendment to the
minimum wage bill providing a minimum
of ).K and 50 cents as the dally wage
for ma and boys respectively.
The house of commons had Just entered
upon the committee stage of the mini-
mum wage hill when' the miners' amend-
ment was moved and Premier Asqulth's
pronouncement the gravity of wnicn was
immediately recognised because It is
practically certain to bring about an-
other deadlock caused a sensation.
In opposing- the miners' amendment
the premier said he was Inclined to think
tbe figures reasonable but that It was
moat undesirable to Insert In the bill any
'specific minimum wag. or to establish
th. precedent of fixing the rate of wages
by act of parliament.
Labor Leader Bitter.
Ramsay McDonald leader of the labor
party bitterly accused the government
6f banging' the door In their faces. He
announced that the miners were willing
to waive the Inclusion of their schedule
rates 1n tha kill if the minimum- imta of
