started for Colorado to-night had struck
up a neighborhood acquaintance with
Tho colpnels arrival In Albuquerque

back, ho said, to tho call of duty and
ho took up the campaign once more.
Colonel Roosevelt spoke to a large crowd
on the plaza here. He appealed especially

It was tho Pueblo Indians whom
Colonel Roosevelt mut wherever ho wont
to-day. Col. Cecil Lyon of Texas, major
domo of tho Roosevelt train, sent word
ahead to the Indian villages along the
way thnt tho colonel was coming through
and the Indians left their little white
huts on the cliffs and came out to meet
Tho largest gathering of Pueblos was
ut l.a Gun. A former student at the Car-
Isle Indian school, Frank Simmons, chief
of tho Indians at La Guna, was In front
to do the honors.
As j-oon as the train stopped the chief
walked forward and shook hands with
'Carlisle," tho chief replied.
'That's fine, by George," said tho
colonel. "There was a Carlisle boy at
tho Olympic games who cleaned them all
up. He ran llko a coyotte with a torch
In his mouth."
At this the Indians wagged their heads
nnd smiled, for the colonel had used a bit
of Indian slang which they understood.
"Oh 1 lived among the Indians In tho
North," he .said, "and I know a good deal
about you. See here," tho colonel thrust
lis arm Into the ntr with two fingers held
apart like a V.
"Indian sign language," he .said. "That
means Jack rabbit."
The Indians wagged their heads.
Then the colonel drew his forefinger

ican named Cinven as having been mur
dered with Dodd, another American, but

Hurries to Make Per
CO cents a dny. On September 1 the Utah
Copper company announced a horizontal
Increase of 2.1 cents n day for alt labor
nnd tho other employers adopted the same
scale. This was not satisfactory to a ma
jority of tho men.
Ton days ago a strlko vote carried over
whelmingly. President Charles II. Moyor
of tho Western Federation of Miners
came horo and urged diplomacy bo ex
hausted before the declaration of a strike.
However, the Greeks, Austrlans, Italians,
Japanese and Bulgarians, who largely
outnumbered the Americans In tl"'' union
are said to have stood with Mr. Moyer,
but when they found themselves out
numbered, ten to one, they Joined the
majority In voting for tho strike.
President Moyer said to-day: "While
personally I have done what 1 could to
precnt this strike, now that it has
come, 1 regard the demands of the men
as fair and Just and tho Western Feder
ation of Miners will back them com
pletely. The men are working too long
hours. The high price of copper certain
ly Justifies tho raise."
Twenty million pounds of copper Is
produced monthly In the camps In Bing
ham. Should the strike be of long du
ration, several thousand other men would
be thrown out of employment hy tho

smelters near here.

FAT MEN TAKE ACTIVE PART
Strong Wind after a Storm Keeps
Monoplane Down Races Run
Off before Packed
Whlto River Junction, Sept. IS. This
was without doubt the hlggost day In
the history of the Vermont State fair.
There were 21,000 paid admissions, exclu
sive of passed exhibitors and help tickets.
Despite tho threatening weather of the
morning visitors begnn arriving early.
By nlno o'clock S.'joO persons had passed
tho gates and It was a constantly flowing
stream of humanity up to ono o'clock
when rain began falling and there was a
scurry to cover. The storm soon abated
and tho full program of the day was
carried out with the exception of the
monoplane flight, tho aviator being pre
vented from going Into the air by tho
strong wind that followed the storm.
The crowd to-day was a study. Long
before the early breakfast hour special
trains began arriving and they continued
until tho early afternoon. Automobiles to
tho number of 1.2'TO brought their full
seating ipaclty and completely filled the
two automobile parks. Tennis were
driven many miles and thousands came
with their lunch baskets prepared to re
main throughout the day. Never at pre
vlous State fails has a crowd arrived at
an earlier hour. Every department of the
fair was crowded to tho uncomfortable
point all day long and the greatest In
terest was shown In the many and varied
exhibits. It was a crowd worth seeing,
a crowd that had come not only for mere
pleasure seeking, but for Instruction and
profit, and It was here for the benefit
of all. If thero was ever a dny at the
Vermont State fair when It was demon
strated that this Is one of tho State's best
