BINGHAM, Utah, Sept 20.-Not a shot
was heard in Bingham last night The
6,000 miners on strike for higher wages,
Impressed, seemingly, by the address de
livered to them yesterday by Governor
Spry and others, remained quiet. But
early this morning they began to as
semble at the railroad station and In a
little while 300 of them, chiefly Greeks,
were discussing the report that the tltah
Copper company- 'purposed' (o-. put theft

The ureeHS asserted they had advices
from Salt.lake' that U G.-SkHri(- an em
ployment agent, bad been engaged by the
Utah Copper company to forward strtki
breakers. The report' was -the more lr-,
mating as sunns nas.oeen- made one
of the Issues of the strike by the Greek
element, which asserts that he dictates
the employment of his countrymen by the
mining companies,' levies a toll on their
wages and prooures the discharge of those
who do not patronize his place of busi
ness. Oovernor . Spry has been told by
many Greek strikers that they would be
willing to waive the wage demands If
Skllris was removed from camp.
The alleged Influence of the iabor agent
is denied by Assistant Manager Gemraell
of the. Utah 'Copper company. ,
A "dinky" engine guarded by twenty
one deputy sheriffs riToved from the foot
of the mountain to the top level of the
Utah Copper property this morning. Tin
strikers did nothing. Men are leaving

union men employed at the Nevada Con

Chino at Santa Rita, N. M., which are
controlled by the Utah Copper Interests.

President Moyer said, "and have a man

refuses to recognize the union in Utah
and we see no. reason why union men

men have some pride and are. unwilling
to work where they are. not wanted. In
fact, the miners at the Nevada Consoli
dated at Ely, Nev., are ready to go out
at a moment's notice.
The Nevada Consolidated mine employs
about 3,500 men. At the Chino, Santa

Sept. 20.-After waiting until nearly 2

Thirteen drivers with their mechan
icians and cars on what some of them
declared to be a dangerous course, pre
pared this morning to start In the first
two races of the three-day Vanderbiit
cup race meeting given by theMIlwau

A thunderstorm about 6 o'clock this
morning, aueoeeded by cloudy weather
Indicated a possibility of further postpone
ment, although the officials hope to race
despite rain.'' v . 1
Five of 'the entrants were scheduled tQ
drive twehty-ohe laps of a '7.882-mile cir
cuit, or 165.62 miles, with light weight
cars, ror the - Wisconsin challenge cup
and S1.S73 In cash.
Eight of the thirteen were entered for
the Pabst trophy at 204.93 miles, or twenty-six
laps of a 7.882-mile course, with
cash prizes totaling (1,875, offered to the
first four starters to finish.
The -' cars in the blue ribbon race
were only slightly larger than those In
the Wisconsin event
The Pabst race stipulations called
for cars of 161 to 230 cubic Inches piston
displacement, while In the Wisconsin race
the cars were measured for a piston dis
placement of 231 to 300 cubic Inches.
Both races were to be run off simul

List of starters.
The drivers who lined up for these two
races, awaiting noon, the hour set for
the start, were:

Blue ribbon trophy:
Nlkrent, Case car; Momson, Bergdoll;

Falcsr, and Hughes, Mercer.
Although these two small car races
were scheduled merely as a curtain raiser
to Saturday's Vanderbiit cup race, and
Monday's 110,000 grand prlx contest, un
usual interest has been aroused by argu
ments between drivers and race officials
as to the danger or safety of the course.'
Many of (he drivers declared the course,
only completed by day and night effort
after one postponement of the program
was extremely dangerous. Officials and
promoters of the race meeting were
equality Inslstant In their assertions that
the track was safe.
Drivers Criticise Track.
The drivers said the roadway, to begin
with, was too narrow, making It hazard
ous for cars to attempt to pass each other
at high speed on the straightaways. In
addition to this objection. It was said the
course was soft and liable to slide or
give way at the edges near sharp cuts
or ditches at the roadside.
The course was so soft yesterday that
the road experts found It impossible to
spread the customary coating of oil.
The management of the meet expected
an attendance of close to 25,000 today and
larger crowds tomorrow and Monday.
The course was patroled by several
companies of Wisconsin militia and a
largs corps of special and city police.
Special efforts were made by Captain
William F. Mehl of the militia to keep the
crowds at a safe distance in the vicinity
of the four sharp turns, where there was
possibility of cars jumping the track.

nominee for president of the ' United
States, reached'Omaha at 6:10 last night
and went later to the Auditorium, where
he was scheduled to deliver a campaign
speech at S o'clock. , .'..,.-
K crowd of, between C00 and 610 men,
women and boys, some of whom had come
to witness the arrival and ethers of whom
belonged to the usual -railway station ,
throng, were present when Mr. Roosevelt
stepped off his car.. Cheers greeted him.
Accompanying Mr. Roosevelt was Cecil
Lyon of Texas and Congressman G. W.
Norrls of Nebraska.
Dollar tickets for stage seats at the
Roosevelt meeting yesterday morning
were given away gratis. For a number
of days a dosen members of the local
Roosevelt club had been diligently work
ing trying to sell the tickets for the TOO
seats on the platform, while the other ,
seats In the house were to be free. It
was announced Thursday that the plat
form seats were selling fine. Yesterday
several tickets were given out gratitously,
even to members of the Douglas county
republican central committee, which is
recognlxed as a "hand-picked" Taft body;

W. B. Broach and Charles C, Wright met
Teddy, at the. train and escorted him to
the Auditorium. . No dinner had been

before arriving, so that all his time here
may be given to the public.
When Colonel Roosevelt reached the
Auditorium It was filled - almost to Its
capacity of 7,600. His appearance on the
stage was the' signal for the appearance
of such bull moose handkerchiefs as hap
pened to be possessed by the crowd, all '
of which Wer Wildly waved. This was
a trifle tame, and some venturescme
spirit cheered, starting a round of ap-
plaue that lasted for fully ninety sec
onds. Then the band played, and It was
proposed that three cheers be given In
honor of Theodore Roosevelt,, this dona
tion to take the place of that previously
asked to defray the expense of hall rent.
After the three cheers ; had been given, .
more were askd for Governor Johnson, .
and these were followed by others for
Congressman Norrls and Governor Al
drlch and others. When the three-cheers
program was concluded, Mrs. Roosevelt
began his speech, v repeating much ? of
what he had said at Lincoln and Hast
Ings during the day. He was especially',
bitter in his criticism of Victor RoSe
water. ,' .
