HOUSE MINING SUBCOMMIT
TEE GOES AFTER COL
No Evidence ol A Coetepiceey fce
Restraint of Trade Waa
(By AwocUttd PXCM.)
WASHINGTON, March 2.-A scath
ing arraignment of the Colorado mili
tia for Its treatment of striking min
ers and their families is made by th?
house mining subcommittee which in
vestigated conditions in the Colorado
coal fields, in a report today. While
scoring conditions generally in. the
coal fields and criticising many , of
the acta of the mine operators, in
cluding alleged "iolatlons ot Stat?
lawa, the committee reports that so
evidence was found of a conspiracy
In restraint of trade to limit the out
put of mines nor conclusive proof of
the existence ot peonage.
The atrike waa settled long before
the committee completed Ita report,
to no specific recommendations are
made. The committee appeals, how
ever, for arbitration in auch situa
tions. It declarea these disturbances
are nation-wide In their importance;
that the federal government is the on
ly power competent to deal with them,
and, after referring to the testimony
of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who dis
claimed responsibility for Colorado
"Absentee owners or directora, by
their absence from the scene of such
disturbances, cannot escape their
moral responsibility for conditions In
and about properties in which they
The committee criticised the State
auhorities .foy failing to prevent ula
of firearms to the contending forces.
"The mine owners shipped four ma
chine guns from West Virginia for
use during the atrike," the report
stated. "The evidence conclusively
shows the miners bought arma sad
ammunition in quantities."
Criticism ls directed also at condi
tions in incorporated towna where
"the companies are permitted to put
up a sign 'Private Property' and ex
clude all except those whom they see
fit to permit to enter, all the officials
of the city, the mayor and the achoo!
board being officiate of the mining
The committee declarea that John
D. Rockefeller, Jr.. did nothing to
Improve the condition of the employes
of thc company in which he ls stock
holder and director, though "he has
done a great dael for uplift of people
'a other"Darts -of the country and in
;oT?gn lands." -
"Mr. ,Rockefeller, before the com"
mitte? In Washington, said he would
not egree to arbitration for the reason
that he was fighting for a great princi
ple, and wenl? ?norifice eli his sroeer
ty for the principle of every man to
be fre6 to work for whom he piesses
and on such tarma aa best , suits the

as a director of the Colorado Fuel and
Iron Company, not having attended a
meeting of the stockholders or direct

ment of liberty tor the working peo
ple of bia company and of the whole
country, should remember that for 30
years there has bean the fiercest
struggle among the workers In the
Mines of Coiosado. _
"Mr. Rockefeller was not a judge
of conditions In Colorado and knew
nothing shout them. He waa not will
ing to submit to a fair board ol ar
biters to settle this strike, and the
statement that be was fighting for
liberty for the working maa/will not
bear investigation. The strike could
have been settled without recognition
of the union had he desired to do so,
