TO GRANT DEMANDS The Miners Statement "That wherea.s a grievance has arisen at the Gait minus tlio nature of which is such thai adds to the already very dangerous occupation of the miner, said-grievance being causod by a .section boss who is unable on his own admission to control his temper.

The person or persons who have given yon this information regarding the percentage of onr membership are certainly antagon- istic to the most peaceful of our membership, and are trying to stir up trouble where if they were to use the same amount of energy in the opposite direction, it would be more to his or her credit. "We wish to also state that dealing with the grievance of the section boss, we are not asking too much in dealing with tills gentle- man in the way our local suggests, when we know the possibility of the danger of a serious nature to some of our membership. If nego- tiations are held up on account of this grievance, the public can see where the fault lies." (Signed) Chas. P. Peacock, on behalf of local union 574. The miner? at their meeting yesterday decided to resume work if the section boss above referred to, was removed. This the company refused to do.
