CLIFTON, Ariz., Everything remains quiet in connection with the strike situation in this district. General Manager Carmichael did not make his rumored address to the workingmen yesterday afternoon and the interest today centers in discussions as to proposed conferences between the managers and the employes. It is stated that General Mtanager Carmichael has decided to take three days to investigate and .find out whether or not the conference committee named by the men is representative and whether or not it was regularly appointed. As nearly as can be ascertained Mr. Carmichael seems to think that the Arizona Copper committee should consist of both union and non-union men and there seems to be an under-standig croud town that the committee named consists of union men entirely. However, it is not believed that Mr. Carmichael would let this matter stand between him and the settlement of the strike and the fact that the principal directors of the company, who reside in Great BPitain and who are now in this country on their annual tour of inspection ,are expected at the properties in about a week, is thought to be the real cause for the delay, Mr. Carmichael evidently preferring to await the arrival of the superior officers. Meanwhile the Mining Journal, the local newspaper, is printing the notices of calls for meetings for the election of committeemen to confer •with the officials of the Detroit Copper company and the Shannon Copper company. The meetings will be held tomorrow as follows: At Mat- calf at 9 a. m., at Clifton at 10 a. m., and at Morencl at 3:30 p. m. The right of plaintiffs in damage cases against mining companies to bring their actions under the Lord Campbell act, the common law provision covering such matters, has been upheld by the Arizona supreme court, according to <word received yesterday by County Attorney Norman J. Johnson. The decision wa3 made in the case of Behringer versus the Miami Copper Company. In this case, the widow of a man killed In the mine, sought to bring an action for $10,000 against the copper company. Judge Shute, in the superior court of Gila county, held that only the workman’s compensation action applied and that therefore the damages were limited to $4,000. Judge Shute’s decision was reversed by the supreme court and a petition for a rehearing before the state’s highest tribunal was made by Attorney Rice, representing the copper company. The resistance to the motion was made by Attorneys Norman Johnson and George R. Hill, of Globe, who were successful.

Wilson, of Globe, today received a telegram from his eastern correspondents announcing that copper had again advanced on the London market, this time, 17 shllligs, 6 pence. The price quoted in the eastern United States markets is 18 cents a pound. Mr. Wilson believes the fact that the price in this country remains at 18 cents while the London price is constantly advancing is due to short selling on the Llndon market and the fact that there are few domestic demands here. But it may be taken for granted that it is only a question of time before the American price must go up if the price in London continues to advance.
