THEORY OPERATORS RIDICULED
Unionists ridicule tho theory of the
mine operators that any significance
attaches to tho marked photographs
of non-union miners found at Victor
union headquarters. A union leader
said today: "The purpose in printing
pictures is to prevent a strike break

work in a union camp. Hundi'eds of

A second battle took place later on.
Seven soldiers sent on horseback to Big

Over two hundred shots were fired. The
miners opened fire on the soldiers as
soon as they saw them coming up the

They were busily engaged getting out

heavily armed men opened the front
door and walked back to the composing
room. They threw their guns on the
startled men who were at work, and
one, who was evidently the leader,
called out: "Line up now and throw up
:our hands." The men obeyed quickly.
The men then wrecked two Linotype

the equipment of the office. Thej

Fridley, It Is alleged, fired two shots
with a Winchester rifle and attempted
to shoot C. C Hamlin, secretary of the
Mine Owners' association, who was
addressing the mass meeting. After the
Mhootlng, it Is alleged, Fridley entered
the union store and concealed his gun
in a stovepipe, where it has been found.
Where Battle Occurred.
I Dunnvillc sprang into prominence
1 last week, when it was reported that
enormous amounts of free gold had
' been discovered, and there was an Im
mediate rush to the place by union
men, who declared that no others
should be permitted In the camp. All
others were barred. But the camp was
of mushroom growth, and the thou
sands who encamped there in the first
two days of its existenco dwindled
away to fifty or a hundred a day. Gen.
Bell has expressed the opinion that the
camp was nothing but. a decoy and
would be used by tho miners as a base
of operations. Dunnvillc is about
twenty miles south of here and Is said
to be in Fremont county, which has not
been declared by the Governor to be In
I a state of insurrection and rebellion.
Trend of Opinion in
Commission to Deal With
Military Prisoners Has
Further Resignations of City Officials
Occur Official Roster Com
DENVER. Colo.. June S. Although
the trend of opinion expressed by
the residents of the towns sur
rounding Cripple Creek, the
scene of the exciting events of the past
three days, is that order will resume
sway rapidly now, there is an evident
feeling of fear lest other and more
serious clashes occur between the estab
lished authorities and the supporters
of unionism In the camp. This Is due to
the persistent report which has gained
circulation, but which is given but
little credence, that all members of
labor unions, regardless of their occu
pations, will be asked to leave the dis
trict under pain of deportation.
Two Battles in One Day.
The two battles today between the
ioldlera and the union miners, the one
at Dunnvillc threatening at ill si to have
extremely seriouii results, form the
maln topic of discussion throughout
the camp. The Big Bull hill affair was
simply a skirmish between union men
and soldiers who were scouring the hills
for miners wanted by the authorities.
Commission Is Appointed.
An important feature of the clay's
events was the appointment of a com
mission to deal with the military
prisoners. This commission consists of
the following. F. D. French. Mayor of
Victor: Nelson Franklin, J. B. Cunning
ham. Judge H. McGarry, D. W. Cope
land, P. M. Rcardon nnd T. J. Dultz
dell. They are well-known citizens and
business men of the towns of the dis
trict. Their disposition of the cases
brought before them will not be final.
Will Separate Prisoners.
It Is the purpose to have them sepa
rate the prisoners into groups so that
those considered deserving of being
charger with crime may be held and the
remainder freed or deported ns is con
sidered advisable. The sessions of the
commission will be secret. Further
resignations of city officials occurred to
day, in some instances effecting almost
a complete change in the official roster
of town government.

DEMOCRATS of Utah were at sea jH
last night as to the probable out
come of today's State convention.
The party, it is generally ad
mi t ted, Is In an ugly broil. Prospect a jH
for a row:' so apparent the first of the
week, have Increased and it was. the
opinion of the leaders of the factions
there are several of them at a late
hour Wednesday, that nothing can pre
vent a stormy session.
It is known that 1C the Mormon and
Gentile leaders could get together and
agree on a silent policy, a policy
leaving the polygamy question alone,
that trouble would be avoided. But
cline to permit the convention to pro
cecd without showing their hands and
the conservatives appear to be power
less to prevent a muddle.
Considerable Peace Talk. V
Not all Mormons are urging instruc- ll
tlons against the anti-polygamy move- jf
mcnt Scores of them are counseling
peace. They insist that anything that
may take tho shape of a united stand jH
In opposition to the anil-church sentl
mcnt will clinch the Work of the antis
and make Utah a center of attack
throughout the Presidential campaign.
What Extremists- Arg-ue.
On the other hand the extremists,
whose leader Is Brigham H. Roberts,
argue that the Democratic National
convention will certainly adopt an anti
polygamy plank that anything Utah
Democrats may do cannot prevent it
and that it Is only proper that thf jl
friends of the church go to St. Louis jJ
and sustain their position for the local
benefit that may be derived.
Some Gentile Democrats deplore the
condition Into which the party has
fallen. They can see only a disastrous
end and have worked for several days
to prevent a clash.
Panning- the Plames.
There Is an element among the Gen
tiles of the party who are fanning the
Uames. They say if tho Mormon lead
era do not make the Dubois resolution
an Issue today that one of their num
her will do so. A strong man, not
elected a delegate, but who has been
provided with a proxy, they say. has
been coached, and will open up the ball
at the first opportunity.
It would scsm that today! conven
tion must mark a split In the party.
It will be a lively convention, though
the purpose of the meeting of the party
was originally Intended to select fix
delegates to the National convention.
Former Senator Rawlins's Position.
Former Senator Rawlins is quoted as
opposed to the Utah delegation going
to St. Louis Instructed to combat the
Dubois resolution against polygamy, or
for the purpose of Interfering with any
plan Dubois or others may have look
ing to the inserting in the Democratic
National platform of an anti-polygamy
With others, the former Senator Is jH
said to believe such a movement would
crystallxc the anti-Mormon scntlmsnt
In the country and commit the Demo- jH
cratlc party in such manner as would
compel the party press and speakers to
make onslaught on the church.
Temporary Officers Not Selected.
The State committee met at the of
nee of James H. Moyle yesterday fore
noon to decide on temporary ofllccrs of
the convention, but on account of a 'H
misunderstanding the attendance was IH
miall. No action was taken other than HH
the canvas of a few names, but the sen
selection of T. R. Johnson of Ogden tot
temporary chairman and Prank K.
Nebeker of Lognn for permanent chair- jM
man. This waa tt,.mcro suggestion,
