THREE CENTS THE COPYCoal Strike on For a Long Time; Miners and Government Are Firm
GOVERNMENT WILL NOT VACATE THE INJUNCTION AND THE MINERS WILL NOT CALL OFF STRIKE.
TRUE TO HIS COLORS A Motion Picture Comedy in Four Reels
By the Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 5.—The Government cannot accept the proposal of organized labor to end the coal strike bv vacating the injunction against the officials of the United Mine Workers of America. Assistant; Attorney General Ames, in the absence of Attorney General Palmer, announced today that the government could not abandon its position, because the strike was in violation of law. Ames issued the following statement: ... . ,
“The strike is a violation of law. As long as it continues, we are going to proceed in the courts. _ The dispute between the mine owners and workers is an entirely different question that they can settle in their own* way. The Government cannot tolerate continued violations of the law, such as this strike constitutes. ^ Refusal of the Government to vacate the injunction means a long fight in the coal fields while its with-! drawal would have opened the way for settlement of the strike within forty-eight hours, according to VV a1-j lace, executive representative of the United Mine Work-j
ers of America.
“If the injunction were withdrawn, the scale committees could get together in twenty-four hours andj settle their differences at one meeting,” Wallace as-
se r ted. '
“The miners committee with power to accept the newt
agreement could call of the strike without referring; the question to a convention,” Wallace said.
The demands were a five-day week, a six-hour day; and a wage increase of 60 per cent. W allace explained, j however, that these demands were not arbitrary, but; were put forward as a basis of negotiation. Labor leaders here who had taken a hopeful view of the strike; situation were plainly disturbed by news that the de-j partment of justice would let the injunction stand. All agreed that it would keep the strike going for some; time. This also was the view of the operators._I

SECRETARY OF STATE SAYS ALL FOUR PROHIBITION MEASURES CARRIED BY BIG MAJORITIES.
By News* Special Service
LOWELL, Mass., Nov. 5.—Senator Miles Poindexter of Washington, addressing a republican state rally here recently, charged that “innumerable instances of government aid and sympathy for revolutionary anarchists have given tremendous encouragement to the lawless movement until it has become the chief political issue of our times.” He cited the action of the administration officials in behalf of Robert Mincy!, accused of attempting to incite sedition in the American army, and the case of Thomas Mooney in California. It was Senator Poindexter’s first public utterance since he became a presidential candidate.
“Mr. Gompers, the president and spokesman of the American Federation of Labor,” he said, “championed the right of the police to strike. This principle, if accepted, would at | once put the enforcement of law j and the preservation of the peace in the hands of the American Federation of Labor and its subsidiary unions. This would be but an ex-] emplification and phase of direct action. It is a revolutionary movement.

D. R. Smith was brought to Ada last night by Deputy Sheriff C. W. Chandler and lodged In the county Jail. There are two charges against Smith—one of refusing to dip cattle and the other of contempt of court. The second charge was a development of a divorce case in which Smith appeared as defendant. In the adjudication of that case Smith was ordered to pay monthly alimony of $26.00, and attorney’s fee of $25.00, and $15.00 to defray the cost of transporting plaintiff's witnesses to the trial. It is alleged that Smith failed to pay this money as per the court order and the commitment for contempt followed.
