AS RESULT OF THE GOVERNMENT'S INJUNCT'N 1EG TOUTED AS Trend Of Opinion Is That Tish Will Finish Second And Caton Third POLLS CLOSE AT Nine Separate Ballots To Confront City Voter When He Enters The Polls Washington Claims Non Union Miners Have Remained At Work And Will Attempt To Supply Vital Coal NeedsMine Leaders In Indianapolis Await Government's Next Move. Temple, first; Tish, second; Caton, third. That's the way the "dopesters1' have the result of next Tuesday's mayoralty election figured out. Whether they're right or not the ballots alone will tell. It is conceded that both Tish and Caton have strong followings but if you've had your ear real close to the ground you must be convinced that the Temple sentiment predominates. Substantial evidence of this is furnished by the bets which are being placed during the closing days of the campaign. All along there has been an underground current of opinion that the" Republican candidate had the best show to win. The fact that Tish and Caton have been lifelong Democrats cannot bxit result in a split of the Democratic rote, even tho Tish is running Independently on The Wage Earners ticket. It is considered practically certain that Tish will not pull as many votes from Temple as from Caton. To be sure there's always a chance for the "dope" to be completely upset but it's not within the realms of probability. LITTLE MUDiSLINGING The campaign has been remarkably clean and free from altho in the last few days Temple and Tish have hurled jfe. few hot shots at each other. Truthfully it can be said that all three candidates are men of good character, and strong personality. It is around the policies for which each is supposed to stand that the storm centers. The opinion prevails that Temple will receive practically the solid Republican vote, with enough Democratic votes to put him safely j across, tho it is conservatively estt (Continued On Page Five) WASHINGTON, Nov. 1.

"The coal strike" he said, "is not. a faith campaign for higher "The government threatens the arrest of our international officers and executive committee, they may arrest all of us, but that will not get coal, There is just one way to get coal and that is to pay the miners a living wage. The arrest of our officials will not affect the strike as we will go on just the same as if nothing had said James McCormick, mine workers' official, Saturday evening. Why are the miners striking? In answered as follows by Mr. McCormick, also why the miners will go on with I heir strike: "The miners believe that present conditions fully justify them In demanding a sixty per cent increase In their wages. One of the principal reasons for this belief is the. fact that trotvi 1914 to 1.919 the Average increase in the cost of living was approximately nighty-fiveper cent, while tho increase In the wages of coal minors was much loss than that figure (estimated at, 20 per cent.) The fact is that the Increase in the cost of Uie foodstuffs which are most generally used by miners and their families run far above eighty-five per cent. Government statistics recently funned show that, the price of bacon Increased 114 per cent; ham, 100 per cent; lamb, )R per cent; hens, 94 per cent; lard, 123 per cent; flour, 118 per cent: corn meal, 100 per cent; potatoes, 107 per cent; sugar 96 per cent. These are the actual necessaries of life which tho miner Is compelled to buy, and It will be found that the average increase in the prices of these Is above 100 per cent. The name statistics published by the government show that from May. 1914, to May. 1919, the average increase in the prices of clothing of all kinds was 125 per cent, and the Increase in the cost of household furniture and furnishings was 131 per cent. There has been practically the same percentages of Increase in the cost of the tools and materials which the miner is compelled to buy for use in his work. These include picks., shovels, lamps, powder and all other materials the miner uses. "From 1914 to 1919, wages for pick mining were increased 29.25 per cent, for machine mining -it) per cent, and for day labor in and around the mines per cent.
