REFUSE MINERS' DEMANDS (SpecinI to the Herald) Macleod, Nov. 26.-r-Absolute refus- al to concede the 25 per cent wage Increase demand of the miners, or to co-operate in an investigation into the Southeastern H. C. coal field was re- iterated at a mooting of Ihe Cfada Coal Operators' associaliou here yesterday in the Queen's Hotel. The mooting was very secret but F MacXeill. secretary of the opera- tors sent the followim; telegram to Hon T Crothers, Minister of La- bor, which sets forth the final deci- sion of the mine owners: Macleod, Altn, Nov. 24, 1916. Hon. T. Brothers, .Minister of Labor, Otlawa, Out. Your message ot the iwenty-seconc has been considered al a meeting oj the Associalion held this dale and am instructed to inform you. 11 IIISIIUCLL-H in That the operators wisli to reiter ale Iheir position as set forth in OUT telegram dated November 16, 1916- We cannot agree to the miners tie maiui for an investigation into th high cost of. living on condition that a war bonus be paid to be commen- rarate witll increased cost of living. The operators would welcome an nvestigation by the government at his time into all conditions surround- ng this dispute and they feel assured Jiat such an investigation would jus- tify their position.. We wish to submit the following: (II. That the selling price ot coal is based largely on the wage scale. That in order to carry on the raslness successfully it is necessary to contract in advance for the big per- centage of the output. That the big percentage of the output is contracted for, based on. the wage scale as made ADrtl 12, 1915, and contracts practically run to expir- ation of agreement. That we cannot transact busi- ness witll the wage scale changing every few months. To agree to the miners' pro- position would establish a precedent that wages would be liable to change every few months and this would tend to demoralize the coal i dnstry in the western provinces.
