CATHOLICS PROTEST AGAINST
r CONDITION AT HEARST MINE
Milwaukee, Aug. 13. At the an
nual convention of the American
Federation of Catholic Societies, rep
resenting a membership of 3,000,000
Catholics in this country, it was.voted
unanimously to send a telegraphic
protest to Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, moth
er of Wm. Randolph Hearst, against
conditions at Lead, S. D., where the
Homestake mine is located, of which
the Hearst estate is the chief owner.
' The same protest was sent to J. B.
Haggin, New York, president, and to
Supt. F. J. Greer of Lead.
The claim is made that conditions
at Lead, where many of the inhabi
tants are employes at the Homestake
mine, impede the work of religion,
and have caused Bishop Joseph F.
Busch to be an exile from the see
city of his diocese.
The Homestake mine is said to pro
duce a net income for its owners of
nearly ?2,000,000 a year,
Bishop Busch addressed the con
vention and said that the miners at
the Homestake were not given-Sunday
as a day of i;est,and that when
he protested to Mrs. Hearst heiwas
criticized so severely that he was
forced to leave-Lead.
WHAT A MINER SAYS . '
"Because of the criticism which
has arisen. from. his .protest against
the conditions existing in the Hoine
stake mine, which ia controlled by
the Hearst interest in Lead, South
Dakota, Bisnop. Busch, like many
others was forced to leave the town,"
declared M. J: Riley, organizer for
the Western Federation of Miners, in
an interview with a" reporter today.
"Bishop Busch protested against ;
the working of employes in- the mine '
seven days a week. His protests were
given no consideration."
"The Hearst interests in Lead are
doing all they can to do away "with
organized labor and during the last
three years have driven over 5,000
union miners out of the town."
