Wilson National Progressive
Republican League Opens
AND MISSES SPEECH
Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 20. Coinci
dent with the opening of the Demo
cratic campaign in Ohio today, gover
nor Woodrow Wilson gave his hearty
approval to the formation in New YorK
of the Wilson National Progressive Re
publican league: The governor and
Rudolph Spreckels, now in New York
in charge of the movement, 'exchanged
telegrams which were made public to
day. Sajs Roosevelt Is Honclcss.
Mr. Spreckels, wiring under date of
September 19. said:

"Under these conditions, you alone

tisanship. Our membership is "wholly

voting and working for your election,
since thecahd!date of the Republican
party does not represent the Progres

Wilson Is Gratified.
Governor Wilson replied:
"Your telegram telling me of the
formation of the Wilson Jfational Pro
gressive Republican league gave me
the depest gratification and pleasure.
The Progressive forces of the nation
ought not to be divided. No mere at
tachment to a party name should now
separate men whose purposes and con
victions are united for the public good.
May I not convey to you my congratu

Wichita Falls, Texas. Sept 20. A lo-
! detective agency announces that
it is practically in a position to prove
that J. Beall Sneed. who shot to death
Al G. Boyce on the streets of Ama
rillo, purchased two automatic shot
guns and three Colt's automatic pis
tols in this city five days before- the

shooting took place. This, according
to the detectives in question, tends to
prove that Sneed had an accomplice in
the deed, for whom he purchased arms
and ammunition. Upon this fact hangs
the likelihood of bringing a third party
into the affair.
This is the first large town south
west of Amarillo and it Is supposed, if
the .detectives are correct that Sneed
and his accomplice stopped over here
to secure their weapons, not desiring
to run the risk of their identity being
discovered in Amarillo.

Federation President Says
D. C. Jackling Refuses to
Recognize the Union.
CALL WOULD AFFECT
HUNDREDS OF MEN
Salt Lake iCty, Utah, Sept 20. A re
port current today that the Western
Federation of Stiners would attempt to
close down the Nevada, Arizona and
Xew ilexico properties owned by the
Utah Copper company interests and
taanaged by D. C. Jackling,. was par
tially confirmed by the federation presi
dent, Charles H. Moyer.
"We contemplate such a move,' he
said, "and have a man on the .way to
Ely to take tip the matter there. Mr.
Jackling refuses to recognize the union
in Utah and we see no reason why union
men' in other states should work for
him. The men have some pride and are
unwilling to work where they are not
wanted. In fact the miners at the Ne
vada Consolidated at Ely, Nevada, are
ready to go out at a- moment's notice.
Mr. Jackling is general manager of the
Nevada Consolidated and officials of the
union at Ely have written me asking
me if I 'did not think it advisable that
The Nevada Consolidated mine em
ploys about 3500 men. At the Chino,
Santa Rita, New Mexico, 2500 men are
employed and the Ray Consolidated has
several hundred. The Nevada consoli
dated and Chino, like the Utah Copper
mine of Bingham, are worked with
steam shovels at the surface and most
of the labor is unskilled.
Jackling Will Protect Men.
D. C. Jackling, general manager of the
Utah Copper company, upon his return
to his office in Salt Lake, said:
JJie strikers at .Bingham, do not rep-
resent the sentiment of .a majority of

sumption. I am not prepared to speak,
but as soon as arrangements are ma;
to" give the employes proper protectioji
the men will be-mit to work."'
Mr. Mover added to his statement re
garding Ely that the Nevada Con?elj.
dated employes were dissatisfied with
wage conditions even prior to the flmjf
ham trouble and would .ouit work al
most to a man when authorized to uo so

GREEES ARE QUIET
AT BINGHAM CAMP
Miners Tell Governor of Utah That La

And Has Them Discharged
Bingham. Utah., Sept. 20. Not a shot
was heard in Bingham last night. The
J 5000 miners on strike for higher wages
I impressed, seemingly by the addresses
J delivered to them by governor Spry and
others, remained quiet. But early this
i inonmijT rnev nwran tn Assemnm at tnp-
railroad station and in a little while 300
of them, chiefly Greeks, were discussing
the report that the Utah Copper com
pany proposed to put a few men to work
at the steam shovel pits.
The Greeks claimed to have advices
from Salt Lake that L. G. Skliris. an
employment agent, had been engaged by
the Utah Copper company to forward
strike breakers. The report was the
more irritating, as Sjliris has. been made
one of the issues of the strike by the
Greek element which asserts that he dic
tates the employment of his country
men by the mining companies, levies a
toll on their wages and procures the
discharge of those who do not patronize
his store. Governor Spry was told b?
many Greek strikers that they would
be willing to waive the wage demands
if Skliris was removed from the camp.
