"Phase of Colorado's Recent Trouble
Not Commented Upon.
The Colorado legislature has appro
priated $60,000 to reimburse members
of the Western Federation of "Miners
for damages sustained in the war
against their union by the" Mine Own
ers association and Governor Pea-
body, who is now unhonored and un
sung. The silence of a capitalistic;
press regarding this law, just signed
by the governor, is in strange con
trast to the yelps of hireling editors
who would convince the public three
vears ago that tne western jreaera-
tion of Miners was an enemy to so
ciety. Xo greater acknowledgement
'of guilt could be made, and the $60,-
000 looms into millions as we recall
the slanders against those who were
forced to call on all the manhood
that's in them to resist the floodtide
of abuse and misrepresentation.
Even Pea body's own political party
with twenty-nine representatives in
the Colorado house and senate, ex
cepting two, voted in favor of the
bill.- which is a direct slap at the
