OTHER SIDE OF STRIKE STORY
Exf-cntlre ' Board f. of Federation of
Miners Answers Hamlin and Pats'
' Responsibility for Violence. "'
, DENVER, June 11. The executive board
of the Western Federation of Miner today
Issued a statement regarding-' the situation
In Cripple Creek, In reply to the state
ments made by General Sherman M. Bell
and Secretary C. C. Hamlin of theCr)pple
Creek District Mine Owners association.
It Is as follows: ; '
The cause of the strike of the Western'
Federation of Miners In Colorado Is one of
long standing and Involves the failure on
the part, of miner owners In far parts of
the state to live up to their own agree
tnents. As far back as 1884, as a result of
the strikes at that time, the .mine owners
agreed that eight hours should constitute
a day's work, that the minimum daily
wage should be IS and that there) should be
no discrimination against union men . In
the hiring and discharge of labor.
At the outset of the present trouble Man
ager MacNelt rrf the-Standard mill at Colo
rado City, peremptorily discharged forty
rive men. members of the Western Federa
tion of Miners, for no other reason than
that they had become union men. All of
these were old employes of from two to six
year; standing. Mlllmen are affiliated with
the Western Federation of Miners and are
entitled to all of the protection that goes
with such membership.
Today the only questions' Involved' are
the enforcement Of the eight-hour day, the
right of men to organize in the unions and
to prevent discrimination against union
men of all kinds. .
' Where Responsibility' Rclo'ngra. .
The responsibility .' for the. lawlessness
connected with the contest rests entirely
on tho shoulders of the. mine operators,
the Citizen's alliance and their .allies,
backed up by the ready power of the state
The responsibility' has been placed on
these persons and organizations by District
Judge Theron Stevens, who denounced the
military usurpation in Tellurlde In. strong
language from the bench; bv District Judge
J. Walter Dixon, republican, who openly
condemns Governor Peabody and severely
criticizes his sets, Involving the deporta
tion of men from the state without trial or
other chance of hearing; by former Gov
ernor Charles S. Thomas, who' plainly
pofnts to the Mine Owners' association and
the Citizens' alliance as being responsible
for the many outrages committed on the
persons of helpless and Innocent miners;
by the recent democratic state convention,
which denounced In scathing terms the
line of policy pursued.
The events of the present week In the
Cripple Creek district Justify every accusa
tion contained above. The following crimes
on citizenship have followed swiftly one
upon the other:
The resignation of Sheriff Robertson-of
Teller county, forced by a mob at the
point of a pistol and a poll of rope: the
forced reslgnutlnn of Coroner Doran of Tel
ler county, of the city marshal of Victor,
of various aldermen and Justices of the
peace in tne aisrict; the entire official di
rectory of the city of Goldfleld: assault
'ion and demolition of the Union hall In
.'Ictor; forcible entrance Into the four
ir.lon co-operative stores and destruction
f the contents; destruction of the Victor
Itecord by an armed mob; Invasion of
Dunnvllle, outside the military lines, by an
armed force under military command; ar
rest of men at their work and Incarcera
tion within the military lines; hundreds of
men confined In unsanitary hull pens; for
cible shutdown of the greal Portland mine'
fnr employing union mln. by order of the
military commandant on the plea of mili
tary necessity and subsequent deportation
ot the men therein employed.
Detectives Plan Ruin.
Concerning the eiplnsion which wrecked
-he depot at Independence and killed slx
tn unfortunate nonunion miners, It need
i lly be said that the self-confessed train
.'recker. McKlnney, In the employ of the

isvlously been reltiased from custody at
.k bohest of the attorney for the assocla

Strike Result of Vote.
Charges that miner are not allowed to
vote on question of strike are utterly ab
surd. As a matter of fact, according to the
constitution of the Western Federation of
Miners it Is absolutely impossible for the
executive board to call a strike of its own
volition. The present strike Is a result of a
direct vote of tho unions In the district,
which left the matter entirely In the hand
cf properly delegated authorities for ad
judication and settlement.
The twelfth annual convention recently
held In Denver appointed a special Investi
gating committee consisting of Malcolm

of Dillon, Wyo.. which committee made a

had been observed In the minutest detail

Yesterday the preliminaries at the St.
Croix club were opened, though owing to
a misunderstanding many of the plavers
SoolStr t0 "PPear, did not show u. The
u ,!x hogan practice a month and a
half later than the Field clUb, and their
beginners did not make as good a showing
as did the youngsters of the Field club
on their opening doy. This lack of practice
was also apparent among the older ones,
who were continually hitting wild or serv

was the play of Sleepaok a ''new un,"' who

and there is hardly a doubt that will be
Some of the men who were practicing
showed good form, but will have to hustle
If they wish to get the cltv championship.
At present . It looks KB if Chase who Is a
member of both the St. Croix and Field
clubs Is the only man they can depend
Upon. Yesterday's results were as follows;
R. Gillespie, plus H of 16. lost to ElaeDSck.
