The attempt of Miles Dougherty and Paul P. Pulaski, labor leaders and strike agitatiors, oC Shamokiu, to organize a branch onion at Williamstown last evening, resulted in litter failure. They addressed a large number of miners from the porch of the Williamstown House, but their remarks awoke no enthusiasm in the audience. Pulaski , spoke very cautiously , and made little or no impressiou upon the miners. Dougherty, on the other hand. gava full rein to his tongue and spoke very bitterly of the attitude of the miners In refusing to joiu the strike. In tho midst of his tirade he was interrupted by Captain George Budd, who ordered him to leave the porch.. Captain Budd was applauded by the crowd, and Dougherty recoguizing the fact that the crowd was not in sympathy with him or with his sentiments, left the stand. Captain Budd took his place ou the stand and addressed the miners, commending thetli for their stand in refusing to strike, and for their firmness in resisting the efforts of the union to intlii-ence them to quit work. He said that their action was both brave and intelligent, aud that they would never regret their decision to remain in the col-leries. Imgherty and Pulaski left for Lykens last evening, having utterly failed in their attempt -to inspire the Williamstown miners with any sympathy for the strike and to organize a branch of the liited Mine Workers of America. Father Loagtie at this morning's session of the State Catholic total absti-u a nee union convention which is being held at Williamstown, in an address referred to the strike and spoke com-meudingly of the attitude of the Williamstown miners. He said he hoped and believed that all danger is now over. The members of the convention held a picnic this afternoon at Midway park, about two miles from Williamstown. and policemen were on duty at the park to prevent the possibility of speeches by IHnigherty, Pulaski or other labor agitators. Williamstown is very quiet to-day and the miners are still going quietly about their work in the collieries just as if tliere were no such thing as a strike in existence. The citizens are relieved that there is novc little fear of an attempt to '"rush" the Williamstown miners.
