Inilrtcncc on the Point That RenofnIUon of the Union Not IHOC Cbuiisel Wplvertonthen opened the case for the operators by reading a statement one important feature of which was the insistence of the terms if the appliwition for the appointment of the commission which distinctly stipulated tuat the iSsues werebetween the men of each mine and their em ployerriiot United Mine VVorkersand the

occupied most of the time try ing that the unionwas not responsible for it and that it would be unfair for the commission to deny the right of the operators to combat that testimony Ira H Burns one of for the independent operators then presented the opening statement of the individual companies makesa dead set against consid eration of recognition of the union and pleads the letter requesting the of the commission The statement assorts this proposition very vigorously it gays the commission if it increases thecost of production of coal should remember where the in crease the consumer The statement says As we understand it one of the chief duties of the commission in this case is to ascertain the valueof la bor in about the mines It is pure ly a businessproposition It is the the labor and not the neces sities ofthe laborer that we are fry ing to ascertain The laborer is worthy ofhis hire but the hire is fixed ac cording to what he does and not by what he ueeds The wanton persectition of nonun ion men who only ask to be allowed tp earn their daily bread in peace is a shame to those who commit or al low such and a blot on tho administration of justice in the state of

compel roads to observe published tariffs has been to materially advance on commodities the rate actually received by the car rier and actually paid by the shipper and that their operation as applied to the present condition of railroad own ership enables advances in rates which might not otherwise be made and main tained While the producer of grain will undoubtedly pay from now oil from 5 to 7 some instances 10 100 pounds more to trans port that grain from the field to its des tination than he had paid for some time before these injunctions took ef fect this is not to be regarded as an argument against the injunctions There ought to be some power which cannot only compel these carriers to maintain the published rate but which can compel them to publish a fair aud reasonable rate
