' It' Is his first vIhII lo tho vast coal properties of tho Colarudo Find and Iron company In twohe )ears, In making It ho is employing every press agent trick In an effort to off set the famous report of I'ranlt V. Walsh, chairman of tho United States Commission on Industrial Halations. Kach day ho visits IiIh coal camps It Is like a triumphant proce.sH.tlon of a king among his vassals, Kor the kingdom of Rockefeller has been set In order since nineteen women and children and strikers were klllod at Ludlow, utid his sub jects huvo been taught to cheer. An expert was first hired to press agent, this visit or John I). Rockefel ler, Jr., to Colorado, Ivy I.eo Publicity Agent. Ivy I.ce was hired as a publicity man. "You must practice tho art of get ting believed In!" I,ee wrote Rock efeller after tho Ludlow massacre, ac cording 'tho Walsli records. Bo Rockofellor, coming to view (ho result of his nodal welfare substitute for unionism, didn't overlook tho pub licity end. Tho night before he reached Trini dad three friendly newspapers In l)cncr and the Associated Press man were notified that he would begin the et morning a tour of his coal camps. Reporters and photographers were ou baud with King, President Wei born nnd other C. P. A I. officials to welcome tho man who Wnluh rays owns Colorado and whose "will nnd conscience." King testified "Is more powerful than all tho people of Col orado." Roosevelt, on a campaign tour, couldn't have gieeted the newspaper men more cordially or democratical ly. Ho was surmised, of course, but quite willing to take them nlnug ou his ttlps about the coal camps of I.as Animas county. Hugnr (Vmti'd Policy Ho wanted to meet all tho miners, compliment all tho women and make friends with all the children In every ramp. Ho succeeded In meeting many. Those he met were the HTRIKKIIRKAKI.Mt.S, Imported to re place tho 9000 union men who lost the great Colorado strike. He met only thoso whom his agents wanted him to meet. Forty' years he had shunned com mon people. Tho change made him an pleasant as his ndlscrt! tell hlni his sugar coated open shop policy Is. Plentj of KN'-HTRIKKIIHKAKKRS told him they UUed renditions and wages And ho did find conditions better than ever they novo been before In tho history of tho eojl mining Indus try. He found that the death of women and children ut Ludlow had (nought better conditions for the strlkehreak ers than ever their fntheis ami broth ers had enjoyed. Rockefeller had the hat tie of Lud low explained to hm by his agents while he stood on the little hill fiom which a deadly machine mm flro was poured Into the mlueis' colony. He didn't visit the "death hole." He talked to miners' shes about tho price of food, the kind of food they hud, whether the had enough, ate with miners, told the bchool kids to obey and respect their teachers. In pelted the club houses built by his companv as substitutes for union li.ilH which the strikers would hae been glad to build and tried In the frankest sort of way, to mnke the miners feel that ho was their friend.
