Cincinnati, Jan. 2S. The Newport,

have eaten and slept in the works for
fear of assault.
Now the union molders are them
selves the "lo8ses," having purchased
the foundry. Thursday they Incorpor
ated it as a cooperative concern with
$40,000 capital stock, consisting of
100 shares of $200 each and today the
new concern opened to continue for
years. Seven directors were chosen
and president, treasurer and secretary,
the latter to act as general manager.
The shareholders are all former strik

IT IS SENT TO CONGRESS
Right to Oeport Still Question But it
Will Probably Never Be
Washington. Jan. 2S. lawlessness
used as a weapon both by the strikers
and the alleged law and order ele
ment is severely arraigned in a report
of Iabor Commissioner Carroll I)
Wright on the Colorado strike which
has been sent to the senate by the
president. The report, which is dated
Sept. 1C. 1904. on the subject of law
lessness has this to say:
Wonder If la Any Law.
The faults in the organization of the
unions by allowing strikes to be de
termined by a commit tee instead of by
i referendum, and the faults in the
organization of the Citizens' Alliance
by allowing irresponsible mobs to rep
resent it, have disturbed the peace of
the counties in Colorado in which tho
conflict had been waged such an
extent that people outside of Colorado
wonder if there is any law or any law-
abiding citizens in that state. It is a
fact, however, that order is being re
stored, for there is a third party now
interested, which is claiming the ad
herence of the best elements in Colo
rado, ami it is insisting that deporta
tions, whether by the Western Federa
tion of Miners or tinder the instruc
tions of the Mine Owners' association
or t itizens Alliance, shall cease.
It lit lit to lleitort Men.
The commissioner says the injunc
tion granted by the United States
court to prevent interference with the
return of deported miners may bring
up the whole question of the right to
deport or whether deportation is a
crime under state or federal laws.
The character of the mob which con
ducted the deportation, he says, open
ed the eyes of the people of Colorado
and of the country, and another whole
sale deportation probably never will
occur in the unhappy history or me
troubles of that state."
