CALLING "MOTHER" JONES
Trinidad, Col., Feb. 18. There will
be no clash of authority between the
state of oClorado and the congress of
the U. S. over the request that
''Mother" Jones be subpoenaed as
witness before congressional com
mittee investigating the coal strike.
Believing that the military authori
ties might not produce "Mother"
Jones, who is a military prisoner at
San' Rafael, Chairman Foster tele
graphed Gov. Ammons asking him if
he would direct military authorities
to bring Mother oJnes before the
committee. The governor replied:
"We will obey your wishes, but pre

return to Denver to see her at hos
pital to avoid possibility of trouble.
Chairman Poster indicated that the
committee would not decide whether
to call Mrs. Jones until he receives
the letter from Gov. Ammons.
