pers," Mrs. Robins told a delegation

born street station. "And why

THE DYNAMITING CASES
Attorney Krum for the appellants
in the dynamiting cases closed his
rebuttal before the United States-Circuit
Court of Appeals yesterday.
Judge Baker then took the case
under advisement and announced
that he would return a decision about
January 1.
Krum in his argument for the con
victed labor men rested on two con
tentions: '
First That no proof had been af
forded at the trial in Indianapolis to
show that the defendants had con
spired to carry dynamite on passen
ger trains in violation of the federal
statute.
Second That the conviction of
the defendants on two counts of con
spiracy and five counts of "aiding
and abettiflg- to conspire" means the
conviction of each man three times
for the same offense, in direct viola
tion of the federal constitution, which
provides that no man may be twice
convicted or his life and liberty twice
jeopardized for the same offense.

LATEST MOVE IS BIG VICTORY
FOR THE MINERS UNION
Trinidad, Col., Nov. 1. The entire
force of militiamen now In the South
ern Colorado coal fields at daylight
tbday started to LudlDw, the biggest
strike colony in the district, to dis
arm all the strikers and mine guards
there and in the Berwind, Tobasco,
Hastings and Delagua camps.
Adjutant Gen. Chase anticipated
no trouble, as representatives of the
miners and operators have agreed to
disarmament. As soon as the rifles'
an dammuniaiton are in, the troops
will take up the work of guarding
the coal mines and all mine guards
will be taken out of the district per
manently. This is regarded as a big
victory for the union.
The relations between the strikers
and the troops are cordial and when
the soldiers started for Ludlow they
were informed that the strikers plan
ned a gigantic demonstration of welcome.
&
Kid on Ground But you're twice
as big as me!
"All right, I'll give you two
chances. Stand up again!"
