Governor Wilson Attacks the

I'JlSNVlSK. Colo.. Oct. 7. "la there

Wilson In his speeches throughout Colo
rado today when ht charged that the
United States Steel corporation and
other combinations of capital were seek
ing to control tho government by pro
posing that monopolies and Trusts should
bo regulated by an Industrial commis
sion. "The old method was campaign con
tributions; the new method is legalized
monopoly," Faid the governor as he dl- J
rected his attack on the Interests, which, j
ho said, were backing the programme of
the Progressive party. Tho governor
drew attention to the senate investiga
tion by the Ciapp committee and said the
debate there was centered on which of
the "certain prMleged groups" had been
"more intimate with tho two candidates
of tho Republican and Progressive par
ties." The governor was given a saluto of
nineteen guns when he reached Denver
from Pueblo and Colorado Springs, where
he spoke during the day. JIls reception
was enthusiastic everywhere.
Referring to the pi-convention cam
paigns of President ""raft and former
President Roosevelt, the governor said
there was "crimination and recrimination
in their debate."
Subject of Debate.

ernor In his Colorado Springs speech, "I

what was it that had discredited, or at
any rote threatened 'to discredit the

vious, upon analysis, that the gentlemen
were donating which of them had beon
the more subject to those lwfluences
which wo are now aware have created
most of the complications which wo wish

men who have promoted the great com

understandings among thoso wno are
conducting the Industry of this country,
which have dominated, not onlv our busi

connections with these two candidates
were being most debated. Thy are be

HOSTILE TO LABOR
NEW YORK. Oct. 7. Governor John

acknowledgment of a copy of an address
Mr. Jollne had made in which he attacked
labor unions and "political demagogues."
Governor Wilson wrote regarding the

After reading the letter Governor John
son referred to a speoch made by Gov
ernor Wilson in 1900. when he was quoted
as saying cortaln labor union tendencies
were "economically disastrous" nnd then
"We have therefore the altitude of Mr.
Wilson In hostility to labor unions In
1000 and the fact that 'with relish and
entire agreement,' he read the address
concerning the 'cruel, unthinking hammer
of labor unions,' in 1007. The period of
1007. 1308 and 1000 is now before us, dur
ing which, If we may Judge from Mr. Wil

of his hostility toward organized labor."

HOPE FOR SETTLING
Workmen Willing to Accept
Increased Wage Without
Recognition of Union.
(Continued frcm Page On.)
mldnblc impediment to a settlement had
been overcome before, today. I am told
that the mine owners were willing to
treat wltli the workmen, but not officials
of the federation, and that tho sentiment
among the cmployera was that tho men
should receive more pay. but not recog
nition of their union. The rest would
seem easy, but apparently it Is not. Mr.
.tackling Is hedging. A committee of the
workmen called on hlui lodav. Thoy
were not officials of the union and went
as employees, but he told them they nad
unit their Jobs, were no longer employees
and therefore could not do business with
"This striko Is damaging business and
damaging the state. There Is no time
to quibble. The employers and m
ployeeu should get. togother, discuss their
differences and let the bbuno for a con
tinuance of trouble fall whore it belongs.
The workmen are willing to meet the
employers more than lialf way. They
have conceded much. Now tho employ
ers should ahow their good faith."
Act as Individuals.
At a recent meeting of ths Bteam
shovelmen at Bingham a committee of
three was appointed. Tliny wald thoy
understood Mr. Jackllng might treat wren
them as lndl.vldu.ahi and that an lnccrase
in wages might be obtained for an em
ployed Jn tho mines without recognition
of the union. At thetr rujuest Saturday
night the strikers appointed a commltteo
of six, two American!', two Greeks, ono
Austrian and one Italian, the purpose
being to havo a variety of nationalities
among the. striking workmen themselves
represented. None of tho committeemen
appointed at cither meeting was an of
ficial of tho union. Thoy said thay would
act as individual employees.
Yesterday both committees camo to
Salt Liilte. Tho steam shovelmen called
at Jackling's office, returned to the
commltteo of six and reported that the
general manager would not negotiate
with them and did not recogniza the com
mittees oven a-s employees. The com
mitter reported that Jackllng said they
were no longer employees bccsiusc they
had left tho worlcs, and gave them to
understand that If thoy desired to do
business with the company thoy would
havo to return to work at the company's
terms, the company accepting such appli
cants for Jobs as it desired, and then
make any request they cared to. They
said they could not perauado hlra to meot
the commltteo of six.
Giififc-enheims Are Threatened.
Lowney and Torzich last night said
that all the Guggenheim Interests would
probably bo Involved in the upnoavn! If
they did not repudiate tho attitude or tho
Utah Copper company and Jackllng. Ter
zlch said the trouble might even spread
to tho Copper river district In Alaska,
where the Guggonhelms own mines and
railroads. The executive board memnors
said no offer to return to work without
recognition of tho union haa boen made
to any but the Utah Copper company
and that no commltteo was sent to any
"I do not think tho Bame overtures will
be mado to tho other owners," said
Lowney. "Mr. Jackllng Is the only ono
who indicated that he desired to confer
with the men. Tho others havo said
nothing and they received tho strikers'
ultimatum before the strlko was called.
"Wo are willing to let the public Judgo
who is to blame. Mr. Jackllng says he
will not treat with the strikers because
thoy aro not actually employed in the
mino. When tho men were actually em
ployed, as will bo remembered, they ap-
DOilltod Joe SfiWell. Wllllnm Afennrfnnv
and a workman named Inglls to present
their grievances to the mine owners. This
committee consisted of men actually em
ployed. Recalls First Move.
"They wore Informed by mine officials
that to treat with the mine owners they
should address R. C. Gemmell. secretary
of the Mine Owners association. The
strikers were willing to rccognlzo the
owners' union and called on Mr. Com
mon. Terzlch and I accompanied them.
Mr. Gemmell said he would talk onlv to
employees. Tcrzich and I left the room
Immediately, announcing that wo were
not employees. Even then the men could
not get anything out of Gemmoll.
"As far as tho organization Is con
cerned, the miners' federation will con
tinue to tight. The contest may hist two
years or longor, but we will not give up.
The International associations aro all
under direct instructions to co-operate
with the federation. The members,
wherever employed, jure ready to strike
whenever ordered. These include men of
various crafts employed at mines which
may become affected."
"I think that the mine owners under
stand by now that wo are able to do what
wc say we can do." said Terzich. "We
showed them at Ely. and Saturday night
at Gartleld. where the mill and smelter
mon have agreed to refuse to handle ore
produced by nonunion men at Dlngham."
Officials of the various corporations
with interests at Garfield would not dis
