Tin- i-oii 1 operators cannot consider the demand of th'1 miners of District IS for a farther war bonus on their wages of -X- per cent., as such a de- mand is in direct violation of the agreement signed by bot'i on August 14th last, when the increase ot per cent, was granted. This is the answer of the operators forward- ed lo the officials of District IS of the V M W of A., as a result of the con- decision were Hon. T W Crothers, minister of labor at oitawa. and to A. Carter, secretary of District IS. j The operators declare emphatically, that they rniinut consider Ihe demands or the minors. They signed an agree- ment In August and they should stick to that agreement: A further increase, rould only mean an increase in the price ot coal, and that is something the people certainly do not. waul. That is the altitude ot the operat- ors fhe attitude of the men hi Ihat Ihe cosi ot living has increased 2a per (tent, arid more since they signed the agreement- with the operators in Aug- ust and that therefore they are titled to the further increase in wages. The -decision ot tho operators is con- tained in the following telegrams sent out by them: Hon. T. W. Crolhers, Ottawa, Ontario. With reference to recent demands-of the miners in this district, as con in telegram of Nov. lllli to Premier Borden. the Western Coal Operators' association beg to draw voiir attention to the following facts: (1) On April 1st, 1915. an agreement was solemnly entered into between the To A. jf Carter .1 f'arler.
