"TO PRESERVE ORDER";
Wilson Emphasizes That the Govern

Washington.-President Wilson ex- ,
tended the protecting arm ol" the Fed
eral Government to the state of Colo- j
rado, where because of riots and I
pitched battles between ?triking nun- ;
ers, Governor Animons had found the j
state militia unable to cope with the I
situation and asked for help. The
Colorado delegation in Congress, mine j
owners and miners themselves joined
In tlic request.
It was one of the rare occurrences
in American history when a state
found itself impotent to assert its au
thority, but the President, in a tele- ?
gi n m to the Colorado Governor, ex- ?
pressly stipulated that the Federal
troops would contine themselves to
maintaining order only "until the
state can re-assert its authority and
resume the enforcement thereof."
The President issued a proclama*
tion ordering all persons engaged in
domestic violence to disperse and "re
tire peaceably to their ?.bodes." Sec
retary Garrison after a conference
with tho President, ordered three
troops of the Fifth Cavalry from Fort
Leavenworth and two troops of the
Twelfth Cavalry from Fort D. A. Rus
sell, Wyoming, to Trinidad, and Can
on City, respectively.
The proclamation read:
By tho President, of the United
States of America :
"Whereas, it is provided by tho
Constitution of the United States that I
the United States shall protect every
state in this union, on application of
the Legislature .or of the Executive
(when tho Legislature cannot be con- I
vened) against domestic violence:
"And, whereas, the Governor of the
state of Colorado has represented that
domestic violence exists in said state, I
which the authorities of f-aid state are !
unable to suppress : and has repres
ented that it is impossible lo convene
tho Legislature of this state in time
to moot the present emergency;
"And. whereas, the laws of the Uni-,
ted States require that in all cases of
insurrenction in any .?-tate or of ob
it ruction to the laws thooro!', when
ever in the judgment of the Presi
dent it becomes necessary to use the
military forces to suppress suco in
surrection or obstruction to Ibo laws,
ho shall . forthwith, by proclamation,
commend such insurgents to disperse
and retire peaceably to their respec
tive abodes within a limited time:
".Vow, therefore. I, Woodrow Wil

do hereby admonish all good citizens
of the United States, and all persons
within the territory and jurisdiction
of thc United States against aiding
countenancing, abetting or taking part
in such unlawful proceedings; and I
do hereby warn all persons engaged
in, or connected with, said disturb
