Violation of Ion1ar llight.
Heine:-, Colo.. Jhi:. s. President
O. II. Mover atid Secretary Haywood,
of the Western Federation of Miners,
have issued a statement in which they
declare that th- strike it! Cripple Creek
district "is not broken, though the lie
publican administration has spent near
ly $1. ( Mil l.l ion of the state's funds to
subserve the 1 Oipoi at ions and make
good their ante-election pledges." The
statement denies that any rebellion or
insurrection exists, and contends that
every constitutional right of the people
has been grossly violated by Coxornor
Pea body and his military snbonlinates.
The result of the Poole habeas cor
pus case is cited as proof that the
governor "is afraid to alloxx- the high
est court in the state determine the
question as to who is guilty of lax--lessness
in the Cripple Creek district."
After referring to the vagrancy or
der issued by the military commander
at Cripple Creek the .statement snvs:
"The members of the Western Feder
ation of Minrs on a strike in the Crip
ple Crock district are receiving all
necessary means of supiort from a
fund which they have helpiMl to create,
and we challenge the right of any one
to deny them that privilege."

the troops will soon lie withdraxvn from

authorities will be able to eoe with

"At least. I hoK so. If nothing tin

be ordered home from Cripple Creek
on Saturday." The governor also said
that the force on duty at Tollurido
