Columbus, O., Aug. 10.- Phil H. Penna, ex-president of the United Mine Workers and an Indiana operator, together with another Indiana operator, had a private conferece with President Ratchford Tuesday. Samuel Gompers is here and says he wlll go to West Virginia as an organizer if President Ratchford so directs. Leading labor men who have been in West Virginia have said to friends here that it is a hard field to organize, for the reason that the miners there are not ?o well eöucated in economie queations as else■where, and fail to be impressed either by reason or sentiment.
