Trinidad, Colo., Oct. 28. A battle ia
believed to have started at. 5:30 thie
morning between approximately 1,200)
st ikers and possibly 300 mine guards.
Troops are hastening to Delauge, To

striking miners and guards lu the coal
neiaa today, one report was nonn
was injured, while others, say 15
guards were killed. A company re
port says only one guard was killed.
SIII1KKHS M0I7.K KN;iK. '
Strikers captured seven guards yes
terday at Chicacossa Junction, eight
miles north of Trinidad. It was also
reported that they captured a Colo
rado and Southeastern engine.
For half an hour more than 125
strikers battled at a mile range with
several loads of mine guards who were
traveling over the Colorado & South
ern railway tracks, ostensibly on their
way to the Hastings mine.
The strikers at the Ludlow camp
Had beon -led to believe that , tha
guards were Intending to attack the
ten,t colony and consequently set about
to defend their temporary homes.
Train derallers were set up on the
tracks, the switches were thrown
wherever possible and a number of the
strikers, armed with high powered
rifles entrenched themselves at a
point a mile and a half from the tent
colony adjacent to the railroad.

have been slightly wounded the train
backed away and the strikers returned
to the colony. '

Calumet, Mich., Oct. 28. The Initial
steps in the movement to bring tho
copper strike to an end have failed,
but the intermediaries today said they
were still hopeful that their efforts
would be successful.
Circuit Judge P. H. O'Brien and for
mer Sheriff Byers of Houghton county
are interceding with the strikers. t
In the first proposition the strikers
said they would waive recognition of
the Western Federation of Miners and
declare the strike off if they could re
tain their union memberships and not
be discriminated against on that ac
count. This was the only request made by
the strikers but as it was regarded by
'the operators as a recognition of the
. fodoratinn it waa refused.
The operators here are adhering
strictly to their determination that
hereafter no members of the feder
ation will be employed. Messrs.
O'Brien and Byers will again confer
with the strikers and endeavor to ar
rive at some other basis of agree
ment to be submitted to the opera
tors. ' -
