"Jesus Too Busy to Look After
Women Who Bother1 Him"
"Mother" Jones Tells Audience That Women Should'
Study Economics 'and Quit Worrying the Lord; She
Praises Pancho Villa and Says Americans Are
to Blame if Mexicans Take Their Jobs.
I ics instead of continually both-
erlng Jesns to save them, wom
en would be better, the labor situa
tion would be clarified, and in time
there would be a practical cessation
of labor strifes." So declared "Moth
er" Jones Friday night to an audience
composed of eight women, about 146
Americans, 35 Mexicans and one city
detective. The place was the Fratern
al brotherhood hall, corner of Oregon
"Jesus is too busy to look after tne
woman who is continually bothering
him to save her," declared "Mother"
Jones. "Jesus was here once and ne
was hanged. If he would come now
he would be hanged again."
"And I want to tell you," this re
mark she addressed to the men. "a
man is a fool to tell a woman not to do
anything because that is the very
thing that she is going to do."

the lives of the miners who met deal
in the recent Dawson, K. M. coal mine
disaster if she had gone to Dawson
instead of going to Washington.
Shortly before that disaster she stateo.
that she had letters from the miners
at Dawson asking her to visit that
place. She said she studied about go
ing to .Dawson and calling the men
out on 'a strike, but the Question or
the Washington trip came up. She
went to Washington thinking that tne
men at Dawson would come out some
time, she said.
As showing the conditions in tne
Colorado coal mines, she cited from
what she said was a state mine in
spector's report, which was supposed
to be kept under cover, that In li
and 1912 a total of 618 children had
been left orphans, their fathers hav
ing been killed in mine accidents.
