Of A. makes tlie following siaiemvMvt in inferemv to allege.>r 4th, Mr. Lindsey read what pur ported to be minutes of a conversation which took place during the negotiations leading up to the agn-e-tiicr.t. I was askerl if I had .�erit those minutes to presidi>nt Mitchell and given them to the Coal Creek miners. 1 answered, no; because I had newr rocei\T minutes re -(erred to, nor ha reooivoi the fir-st three days' niimites. When, we asked for others the,\- were never toady. Xone of the records i-efcrrvHl to are verlNitim, the stenographer was unable to keep up with the con-voi'.sation, ami it is well known now that revi.sed them to suit him.sclf. I desire to poini out that Coal Creek min�?rs did not strike no cause non-union men were envplo.yetl in the mines. Our memliers have '.ontiJiiie-:! lo work wilh non-uni )n men at Cotil Ci-eek right along, pre-lerring to e-xerci.w persiin-sion rathei than force; but when manag�r Lindsey allowed a new claii-se to lie written in otir ngreenionl and check-off book and men were allowed to withdraw from the agreement and chock-off; �hoh twentyKtighl men hud done so, wi> protestetl vigorously, Lindsny C.nally took the position that the men who withdrew their signatures were legall.v right in so doing, and his con)pany propf)stcct them. The Coal Creek men gave him the opportunit.v to work non-union men "iut the non-union men speedily became imiou men and the attempt to start the mines failed. Lindsey look the positioti that all his em plo.vws could vithdraw their sig -natures from the contract, but when I offered to do so ho then said: N'o.
