. THE STRIKE SETTLEMENT.
The miners' strike at Clifton, Ariz.,
has been settled. The 5,000 copper
miners who struck in September last
year for higher wages and union rec
ognition have returned to work, un
der a compromise agreement which
provides a sliding scale of wages, but
does not accord recognition of their
union. Upon the whole, it is a vic
tory for the miners, which was made
possible by the action of Gov. Hunt
of Arizona in refusing to permit the
importation of gunmen and strike
breakers under the protection of the
state militia. The strike settled, the
mine owners will now turn their en
tire attention to the effort being
made by them, through the news
papers they control, to bring about
the recall of Gov. Hunt.
The leading corporation involved
is the Phelps-Dodge Co., more gen
erally known as the "Copper Queen
Crowd." This company In 1912
earned 23 per cent on its $45,000,000
capital and pays regularly a 15 per
cent dividend. It is claimed that the
Clifton properties paid in 1912 a div
idend of 146 per cent on a capital
of $1,000,000. Copper sold then for
about one-half the present price. It
would appear that the miners had
something coming to them. At any
rate, the outcome of the big strike is
in refreshing contrast to that of the
Colorado coal miners' strike, where
the Rockefeller interests controlled
the state executive and sent in hired
thugs to shoot down the strikers un
der state protection.
If there is any predicate for the re
call of Gov. Hunt in the solution of
the Arizona troubles we are too dense
to perceive it.

stuff you know is pulled by your
foremen in the factory where the wo

they snarl at them and bulldoze
them, thinking ignorantly that they
get more work out of them by such
actions. You know how these fore
