From the El Paso Herald: United Mine Workers of America to Hold Convention

The annual convention in Indianapolis of the United Mine Workers of America this year carries with it more significance than any convention within the last five years, not excepting even the assembly that was followed by the declaration of the great anthracite strike. If the reports that are circulated at the headquarters of the miners' organization in that city are to be believed, the convention, and especially the joint conference between operators and miners that will follow its adjournment, will witness an important struggle. Upon the deliberations of the joint conference depends the wage scale for the year 1904. It is now asserted that the miners will carry to this joint conference a demand for a 10 per cent, increase, together with a demand for several important concessions that will have a far-reaching effect throughout the bituminous field. At the same time, it is reasonably certain that the operators will carry to the joint conference a demand for a 20 per cent reduction in the wage scale now prevailing.
