No coercive measures win be employed in the rettistribattoB ot such labor, it was stated; but raw .materials, are to be withdrawn from industries turning out non-war products, and labor so employed wffl be aasUt- . ed in reaching places where. It can . best nerve the country from a war- j helrtnK standpoint , I Operators generally approve ot the | determination to put a shs to the , pernicious bonus system. Repeated | effort? hare been made since the coal i situation became actrte to have the practice discontinued. Those operators who were opposed to the pay- ; ment ot 'bonusee,* Mid who realteed | the dangers that would follow a continuance of the system, were often obliged to resort to it in self-dtfense. The effect was to add largely to the, cost of production and to place a premium, upon the smiting of men nbooffrom plant. By the public the operator who paid the bonus and the miner whs, accepted or demands it has been as unpatriotic as they have been greedy, hence both have been tainted with profiteering of a most reprehensible.kmd.
