FRELINGHDYSEN CAN SEE BIG COAL PLOT Scents Secret Deal Between Attorney - General anil Miners' leader. OrEHATOBS GET TIIREAT PnllllCl. Oil Cleveland 'n contempt of ctrart, said tho \other .day: I opposed acceptance the Jfcetin?:, Warns that Ik S. Will Sec Faith Is. Kept. Special DnpatcK to Tan Scs. Washington', Doc. 22. In a denunc- iation of the agreement reached between Attorney-Gener- al Pal- mer end John U Lewis, acting presi- dent of tho United Aline \Workers of America, for settlement of tho coal etriko on a proposition submitted by the President, Senator Frelinghuysen (X. J.), chairman of tho Senato invest- igation committee, expressed the fear of a secret arrangement soinewhero In the deal which would plunder the American public. Attorney-Gener- Palmer In a state nient declared the stand taken by Uie coal operators against the pro- posal was the merest quibble, and he concluded: \The Government will not assume that the operators will break faith, and Indeed ways will be found to see that J1 parties keep faith in this vitally Important transaction.\ With this threat, ho says lie believes the operators after reflection will see the wisdom of cooperation in the sett- lement proposed. The operators for the most part an on their way to Cleveland to attend a general conference there Loadrd Dice,' Says Frellnffhnyacn Senator Frellnghuysen asked for a jtnlement on the settlement as chair- man of tho Investigating commilttee, raid \I cannot speak for the other mem- bers, but personally I view the plan with grest jweaslness andTTm disposed to resartl It as a loaded dice proposition lor the American people. In whose behalf alone I am concerned. I do not con- sider the plan nn Impartial one. The circumstances attendant upon Its con- ception and promulgation do not appeal ti me. I do not like the setting. 'The Inauguration of a coal Btrlke on the threshold of winter, especially when it was founded on broken pledges and a repudiated contract on the part of the miners, was an outrageous act. In his strung statement given to Ihe public October 25, 1919, the President de- nounced It In these terms: 'A strike un- der these circumstances Is not only un- justifiable; it is unlawful.' \Judge Anderson, an able, courageous jurist, so considered It and he held the officials of the United Mine Workers In heavy ball and ordered them to ap- pear before him to make satisfactory answer or stand committed for con- tempt. \It the strlko was \unlawful as the President declared It to be, then the manner In which Mr. Lewis and other officials treated the order of Judge court was infinitely worse. Os- tensibly obeying the letter of that decree, not a man returned to work ; not a pick as llttcd; not an ounce of coal was mined. \Meanwhile mills were closed, trains were withdrawn and Individual citizens suffered great hardships. Contempt for All Lair Shown. \Never was law and order and Gov- ernmental authority and judicial decree treated with such utter contempt. I strongly commended the action of the Attor- ney-General when he began suit against the officers of the United Mine Workers at Indianapolis. Even more strongly did I commend his telegram to the Chamber of Commerce of Moberly, Mo., December 1, 1919, when he said: 'I do not approve of your suggestion that another conference of operators and min- ers be called at this time. 'Throughout that telegram the Attor- -' views were patriotic and statesmanlike. The proposal of Dr. Garfield, which tho operators had ac cepted, Mr. Palmer declared to be 'fair lo the miners and protects the public' He added : To grant the demands of the miners would make the cost of living still higher. The new wage contract would run three winters, and therefore would maintain a higher cost of living for three years. Such a situation tannot be tolerated.' \In this telegram the Attorney-Gener- employs the words 'unlawful strike.' One neek later, on December 6 and 7, in splto of the strong denunciatory lan guage of the President and the Attorney-lenera- l, tho representatives of tho Gov ernment in Washington and on the train n route to Indianapolis, Mr. Lewis and Mr. Green being fellow passengers, con- summated the agreement which It Is now sought to put Into force. \In the first place, there should have een no agreement at that time. These nen were In contempt of court and were :ut on ball. They were summoned to ppear before Judge Anderson two or hrce days later They should have d, should have purged themselves t contempt, should have brought the ItHke to an end in fact as well as In name.

Tho miners nre expectlnar that additional ra,-- e as a result of this xroement. Chalrmsn Lewis In tils address to his mitn De- cember 1, 1919, speaks of the probability or further Increases In all classifications of labor when the commission finally make Its award. \Upon what docs he base his prob- ability': One of his chief lieutenants, Alexander Howat, head of the Kansas tiilno workers, who. w tim .. u .tin EVO Of of prorosal, but had I known wnai Lewis and Green knew, I might 1.111 imvo oproseu it ..r. Howat added: 'President Lewis and fiecretarv-Tieusur- rr rironn promised us that when tho President's proposal Is put into operation and re- sults have bo en obtained under that proposal the 'miners will not only have received Uie 31 per cent. Secretary WIN own iirtpcsea, out mere win ue improved working conditions' \There must have been some secret uwu maus in mammon lo the signed agreement. In any event, the public may look for an Increase. In the price ui cum or anomer strike, Dr. Garfield's position throughout nis wnoie splendid service as Fuel Ad- ministrator was patriotic and logical as wen. ana especially so In his recent course during the strike, lie had every reason to feel convinced that lila views renectcd tho views or Uie and ho thinks so still, or did when ho before our committee. In his previously quoted telegram to the Chamber of Commerce at Moberly, tho Attorney-Gener- al had said: \TJe situation calls Tor tho steadfast support by the, public of the Govern ment's position as announced by Dr. Garfield. Pabllo Sacks Garleld Stand. \The puWIc did support that position and supports it I do not believe tt supports or will support the Govern-ment'- a position aa announced by the Atto- rney-General. The assumption of that position constrained Dr. Garfield In order to maintain his ct to sunder nis omciai relation to the Government, to the public's Irreparable loss, though 1 understand to the gratification of tho miners. \There are two ways to Bottle unlaw- ful strikes. Gov. Coolldge showed us one way, the way of a fearless, patriotic public official who Mfused to temporize or compromise with lawless men. The other way Is to dicker with men who are law breakers and law deilers men who are In contempt of court, men who are outside the pale of civilized government, in that they decline to recognlae judicial or executive authority. There waa a votal principle involved In this contest that wns Ignored In the settlement of this strike namely, shall the law be supreme or shall an organization, a class, hold Itself above the law and refuse obedience thereto when Its selfish Interests come In conflict with the public good? \So far as concerns the economic Is sues involved mere snouia dc no to the miners. They are already receiving the hlghctt compensation now jmtd any Ml'iid mechanics in America. Dr. Garfield has preeented figures show- ing that the avenge wage ot the miners Is (6 a day. Our committee has simi- lar figures before It. Thousands of them are receiving from $10 to $1\' a day. \I was opposed even to the raise of 11 per cent, authorized by Dr. Garfield. It should never have been granted. Thoujh ostensibly coming out of the pockets of the operators, It Involves an addition to the cost of production of hundreds ot millions Of dollars and makes practically Impossible any reduct- ion1- to the consumer for two or thrc years to come. If that concession is onjectionaDie, fcow. much more objectionable Is tho .possibility of any further Increase such as Mr. Lewis, acting cnainnan or me United Mine Workers, has assured his men they are likely to secure under the agreement with, the Attorney-Genera- l; which Mr. Lewis' himself says 'differs materially from the proposition made by Dr. Garfield.' That is wnai tne miners cxpcci. it was upon that basis, upon uiai assur- ance, that they are willing to obey the law. It will be a sad day for America It obedience to the law must be purchased In this manner. I am oppose\ to sucn a proposition and I believe the American people are opposed to it.\ Statement lr AUoriiey-Geiieru- l. Attorney-Gener- Palmer In his state ment said: \The statement of the executive com mittee of coal operators, lssuel last night, In which they deny thnt they had agreed to accept tne I'resiueni's pinn for adjustment of the differences be- tween the miners and operators, Is the merest oulbble and quite unworthy of the representatives of a great Industry.

In a public statement the operators accepted this proposal. 'The miners rejected the proposal. \On October 2S the President Issued a Btatemont In which he repeated his willingness to appoint 'a tribunal to In- vestigate all the facts with a vlow to aiding In the earliest possible orderly settlement of tho nutations at Issue be- tween the coal operators and the coal miners.' This proposal nlsp the oper- ators promptly accepted, while the miners rejected It. \In the President's statement? dated December fi, ho repented his willingness to appoint such n trlbunnl 'to make fur- ther Inquiries Into this whole mutter and to review not only the of the wages at which the miners start to work, but also the reasonable- ness of the Government prices for coal,' and said that this .plan nssured to the miners 'prompt Investigation and action upon matters which are not. now settled to their satisfaction.' This also the op- erators promptly accepted and the min- ers finally accepted It also. Pledge Mnde by Operator. \In addition to that, tho operators at Joint conference with the miners had re- peatedly offered arbitration of the mat- ters In dispute, offering nmon other plans a commission to bo appointed by the President, which the miners had re- jected. Thus the operators pledged themselves repeatedly by agreeing to the President's proposals to submit to arbi- tration 'the matters in dispute' and 'the questions at Issue.' \The memorandum which was pre pared by me and submitted to the min- ers' conference nt Indianapolis did not change the President's proposal, thus re peatedly accepted by theoperatori. In the slightest particular. Its reference to the matters In dispute and the ques- tions at Issue was In plain harmony with the language of the President's proposal. It received the 'unqualified approval' of Mr. Brewster, who had been the chief spokesman of the operators up to that time. \The fact Is that the operators from the beginning have been clamoring for arbitration. More than that, they re peatedly stated their prefect willingness to en along with ihe Government in uny plan that tho President suggested. Their allegation now that they were not con- sulted about the form of the memoran- dum which was submitted to the miners' conference Is absurd. \It wa In fact submitted by my secre tary to their representatives In Indian apolis, who communicated It to Wash ington, and no objection was mnde. The operators remained absolutely silent un til after the men were back In the mines. Then for the first time they begin to ob ject. 'The miners went back (o work In obe dience to the law and the orders of the court without having their demands granted. They relied, as they had a right to rely, upon the promise of the 1'reslJent thnt Immediately upon com plete resumption of operations n commis sion would be appointed to take up the matters at Issue. The officers of the Government had an equal right to rely .upon tho good faith of the operators Iri thslr previous declarations of agreement with this pro gramme. The Government will not as- sume that the operators will break faith, and Indeed ways will be found to see that all parties keep faith In this vitally Important transaction. \The commission will proceed with Its work, and I nave no doubt that upon further reflection the operators will see the wisdom of hearty cooperation with It.\ IClomkl llotil In Arrest Cne.

COMMISSIONER RETORTS Amazed at Charges of \rack- ing,\ Calls Hearing in Own Offices. The financial problems of Statcn Isl- and's two street rallwuy systems are not going to be discussed at the Bor- ough Hall there next Monday night, be- cause Calvin D. Van Name, Borough President of Richmond, has refused Pub- lic Bervlco Commissioner Lewis Nixon use of the building for the mass meeting he had planned. Mr. Van Name's curt answer to Commissioner Nixon's request and tho hitter's reply nre looked upon as opening n controversy that may reach n climax Monday afternoon at a hearing on the matter In the commission's ollloes. Commissioner Nlson announced Sat urday thnt representatives of the eMute of the lute Henry 11. ItcgerR were about to cease c.Torts to meet deficits In the Statcn Island and Midland Hallway Company und the Richmond Light nnd Railroad Company the bonds of which are held bv the estate. He explained that nn annual deficit of 100,000 or more had discouraged attempts to put the companies on an earning basis. He wrote to Borough President Von Name explaining trie gravity of the situation and stating be had called a mceung in tho Borough HuU. Commissioner Nixon was surprised yesterday to receive the following letter from Borough President Van Name's secretary, George T. Egbert: \I am directed by tho Borough Presi- dent to inform you that the Borough Hall will not be opened ut ony time for a meeting on the trolley. Increase fare question, because the meeting would bo inched and would create nn artificial atmosphere. It would be no proper way ot obtaining an expression of opinion by the people.\ No further statement or explanation of the reference to a \packed\ meeting could be obtained yesterday from Mis Van Name. But Commissioner Nixon, exercised over the nssertlon that Staten Island's Borough Hall was closed to etlngs at which a \trolley Increase rare ques- tion\ would be discussed, refused to let the matter rest. \No ic asked you to open the Bor- ough Hall for a meeting on Increased trolley fares,\ he wrote In answer. \A meeting was called to Inquire Into con- ditions, so that a calamity might be avoided. My Impression was that the convenience of the people of Staten Isl- and uould be belter cared for by hold- ing this meeting In the Borough Hall. To refuse the Borough Hall for such purpose Is, of course, within your Juris- diction.\ \I thought I should at least meet with cooperation,\ said tho Commissioner In commenting on Mr. Van Name's atti- tude. \This hearing will not be n po- litical 'meeting that could be packed, or even harangued. It Is not a question now of past performances but'ot future Of course I regret that such an answer fehould come from Statcn island to this commission, which has been engaged In ' a study of how to obtain real rapid transit theie. \If the Borough President refuses to appear at' the hearing called at these offices as he must after his rebuff to represent tho Interests of the people of the Borough of Richmond, It will be evidence of a willingness to let vital qui stlona go by default.\ Commissioner Nixon made known also that he has taken tho Staten Island problem up with the Mayor and other members of the Board of Estimate. He declared the Mayor said he would not corslder taking over the lines If the fare would be more than 5 cents. While the settlement of the matter Is pending the executors of the Rogers estate agreed to take no steps looking toward the abandonment of the two companies until a hearing could be held. Commissioner Nixon explained. Clinricrd With Promoting Anarchy Boston, Dec. 22. John J.
