Excerpt from Anthracite Coal Strike Commission: Argument of H. T. Newcomb of the Counsel for the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company

To the Anthracite Coal Strike Commission:

The importance of a correct determination of the questions submitted to this Commission is not to be measured even by that attaching to the wages or annual earnings of an industrial army nearly 150, 000 strong, or to the prosperity of the business which supplies the economic basis of a community of eight hundred thousand human beings and covering a region of almost eighteen hundred square miles, or to the price of the principal domestic fuel consumed in the eastern half of the United States. All of these things are directly connected with the issues between the anthracite mine workers and the operators by whom they are employed that have been submitted to this Commission and each of them must be affected in a greater or less degree by its award. But there are other matters of wider and far more permanent importance that are just as certainly involved.
