DENVER, Colo., Feb. 13.-".Saloons

the board of directors of tho Victor
American Fuel company. In cross-ex-
amlnatlon today before tho house com
imlttce Investigating tho Colorado Miners'
I strike. Tho coal operator was ques
itloned by E. P. Costlgan, attorney for
I tho strikers, regarding the charge in a
recent report of tho federal grand Jury
nt Pueblo that the mining companies
j run saloons on their properties .
j ,-I cannot speak for the other com
panies, but we regulate tho saloons In
jour camps," replied Mr. Osgood. "Thoy
1 seem to us u necessity In mining camps,
In tvo of our mines, as an experiment,
; wo transferred the saloons Into clubs,
I with leading rooms and other conven
iences. Wc also prohibited treating.
Wo found that at those camps, on an
average", the miners spent about K less
per month each for liquor than those, at
other mines. At Redstone, ono of thbso
two camps, I never saw a drunken man
In five or six years, although the men
were drinking constantly."
Tho witness told of an anarchist sa
loon which he said was run by enemies
of tho mine owners In Agullar Canon.
Ho said that a red flag with a bowls
( knlfo on It, floated over tho saloon.
1 Mr. Costlgan asked the witness about
j political conditions In southern Colo
1 rado. .Mr Osgood denied any knowledge
of political activity by the mine owners.
Ho emphatically disavowed any action
by himself In Influencing politics.
Imported Men Not Deceived.
Tho witness told of the Importation of
strlko breakers being delayed by the
governor's ordor against bringing In
men. Ho said that tho company had
hired no men except on contracts whtch
stated plainly that a strike was In ef
fect. "We asked Governor Arnmons," he
added, "to have the mllttta examine all
tho Imported men and mako sure that
they understood the conditions and had
not been deceived. This was done by
order of Genoral Chase. -
Tho witness Identified payrolls of some
of tho Victor-American mines showing
wages for one month, In some cases ox
ceedlng J1T3. Mr. Osgood said ho was
willing to submit to the committee all
tho books of tho company except those
showing contracts, which tho corpora
tion did not wish revealed to competi
tors. Osgood then told of the visit of Ethcl
bert Stewart of the federal Department
of Labor, who came to Denver In an
effort to settle tho strike.
"Mr. Stewart spent practically all his
time with tho labor men while In this
state," he declared. "Wo met him once,
in .the governor's office. Wo offered to
furnish him any information available,,
but he said ho didn't want any informa
tion; that ho was not an Investigator,
but a mediator. (
".Secretary Wilson, during Jiln .-visit
here, did not ask us-for any Informa
tion regarding tho strike."
Cross-examination by counsel brought
the accusation from the witness that
Colorado had a bad record so far as mine
accidents were concerned, owing to a
series of dust explosions In 110, but theso
accidents were not confined to nonunion
mines. Ho cited the disaster In the
Cherry mine tn the unionized state of
Illinois as tho worst in the history of

corporated, would you rccognlzo the
union?" naked Representative Byrnes.
"No, I think not. I do not approve

Tho witness added:
"My Idea Is that some day wo will have
competition among union, which will
ralso tho irregular standards. In that
event It may become safe to contract
with them. I think that this attempted
monopoly of labor by the United Mino
Workers of Amorlca is dangerous."
"Haven't you practically a monopoly
of the coal Industry of this state?" asked
"There )s no combination among the
operntors who have advertised themselves
as representing 03 per cent of the coal
Industry," replied Mr. Osgood.
Mr. Osgood declared that Instead of
being hostllo toward operators who had
signed union contracts, his company Is
buying coal from one whoso name he
declined to mention, because the con
