Ijocal unions throughout the anthracite region today received in the maild the report of the miners' sub-scale committee which was in conference with the hard coal operators in New York in the futile attempt to draw up a new wage contract. The report wa read at the full ecale committee meeting here Thursday, but wa withheld from publication until it reached the local unions.

The report state that the operators In the New York conference "did not change their attitude whlrtj they assumed on July 9 at Atlantic City, and they persistently instated that no aettiement mat ma not provide for a continuous, and permanent arbitration of ags and condition would be considered." The refusnl of the operators to join in a petition to Congress to pam legislation to regulate the Industry gave evidence "that their only desire to? arbitration ie to reduce the wag" of the mine worker's and permit their profits and prices to be regulated by themselves1." At thin writing, the report ays. "negotiations are off despite every ef fort of your, negotiating committee to remain in ees-nlon in their desire to bring about an honorable settlement. From now on we can expect that the anthracite opera ton will continue in their propaganda Intended to demoralize our forces and create distrust and dissension among our membership. They have gone to every extreme their mad desire to divide the forces of the anthracite mine workers in this struggle, but our lines remain firm and our membership in deter mined that no settlement nliall be made or will be made that in not honorable and doe not give our people that measure of justice to which they are entitled."
