From past performances coupled
with the story of the latest outrage
perpetrated by the gang in Miles
City, it appears that the town is in
the hands of an element such as that
led by the notorious bandit Plummer
in the early days at Virginia City,
and that only the friends and associ
ates of the modern-day P'iummers of
Miles City are safe from persecution
or even proseculion. Since, like Vir
ginia City of the old days, the law
is in the hands of the crooks, it
seems that a-mntoderrr vigilante coan
mittee is needed at Miles.
Accorldin.g to information received
by the Ilulletin , alollllanied by
swornlo affidavits, it seclils that tlan

Washington, Aug. 30.--Interven
tion by the president appears to be
the only thing that will avert the
strike of union workers in the steel
industry, if they attempt to carry out
their threats.
The time limit given to Judge
Carry, head of the United States
Steel corporation, for a reply to the
last letter of the steel workers' com
mittee requesting a conference, has
expired without a reply being re
ceived. John Fitzpatrick, the com
mittee's head, declared there is
"nothing tmore to be done."
Tonopah Strikers Gain;
Deported Miner Returns
(Special United Press Wire.)
Tonopah, Nevada, Aug. 30.-The
strike of the metal jminers here for
a wage increase of $1.00 per day, the
eight-hour shift from collar to collar
and the return to his home of Fred
Alignordot, the Tonopah miner who
was deported to Big Pine, Cal., in
the early days of the strike by a
party of mine guards and local depu
ties, developed a new phase yester
day when Mignordol, whose actual
whereabouts have been unknown by
the striking miners since his depor
tation, was located at Bishop, Cal..
by a party of miners and returned
to Tonopah yesterday. Mignordot
received a rousing reception at the
hands of the strikers upon his re
turn here and spoke at a mass meet
ing last night.
It is the general belief in union
circles here that the return of the
deportee will have a marked effect
on the strike situation, as all other
demands of the strikers had been
made secondary. the return of 5Mig
nardot to his home being the para
mount issue.
The strike, which is reaching the
end of its second week, remains un
changed so far as any break in the
ranks of the strikers is concerned.
The spirit of solidarity which has
characterized the strike from the
first remains unbroken.
All gambling resorts have been
closed by the striking miners and
bootleggers have been escorted to
the city limits by committees of min
ers and told to leave the camp and
not return.
The majority of operators in the
Divide district near here are willing
to accede to the demands of the min

(Special United Press Wire.)
San Francisco, Aug. j0.--Califor
nia's rail strike ended last night
when action was taken at a mass
meeting in Los Angeles several hours
before the government's ultimatum
expired, making it unnecessary for
the government to make effective its
threat to operate the trains begin
ning at 7 o'clock this morning.
The meeting lasted for three hours
and was one of the stormiest labor
sessions in the history of the state.
A. F. Whitney, international vice
presiaent of the Brotherhood of
Railway Trainmen, who addressed
the meeting was hissed and had many
epithats hurled at him.
At one time prompt action of the
conservatives prevented the radicals
from sweeping him from off his feet.

Wingfield interests which dominate
the situation so far as the mine oper

been granted and the men have re

Kelley Agrees to Consider
Proposition From Metal I
Trades. Blacksmiths Set
tie With City Employers.
7'he downtown black.nmith s~hops
in which the blacksmiths have been
on strike, have notified the strike
committee that they will settle for t
the scale askedt. $7.50 for journey
men and $6.50 for helpers.
The blacksmiths employed down
town will return to work Tuesday
Much interest is centering aiLouit
the conference it is believed will be
arranged between th,, Anaconda
`lining colmpany officials and the
striking metal trades.
John Green, secretary of the Sil
ver Bow council and chairman of
the committee appointed by that
body to arrange a meeting between
the parties to the controversy, has
been in communuication with iMr. Con
Kelly of the A. C. aM. Mr. Kelly at
first stated that he had said the last
word in the matter, but on being in
formed that his arbitrary attitude
would force the Silveir Bow council
to declare a general strike of all
crafts, Mr. Kelly then stated that he
would consider any proposition that
the metal trades had to submit if it
was reduced to writing.
It is doubtful if the metal trades
will agree to anything except a fur
ther open discussion, at which a
settlement may be arrived at, and a
conference is expected either today

Dear Sir: Montalna is now and has been since Ilhe beginning of
the world war ill the grasp of a group of profiteerling wholcsale and
retail dealers ill f(odstuffs and olher necessities, includling coal. Prices
have been arbitrarily advanced by the detlers to the stage where the
in(comes of (the worling people are inadtequate to permit (of the pur
chase of sufficient necessities to keep laldy and soul together, and
promllises of further increases are umade. Our state officials, who have
given evidence that they are in league with the food and coal pirates,
have failed to give us relief, and we now look Lo your' office to come
to ourll assistalll(e.
As your United States district niLtorney for Montianla you have E. C.
)Day, a self-colnfessed britie-taker an( a notorious friend of the intelr
ests swhiclh are now guilty of profiteering. Mr. J)ay has not only sig.
nally failed to lake action against tilhe profiteers, but seems to be ex
tending them every protection in his power.
As the result of tihe continued increases in price and the inactivity
of our stalte officials as well ats Mr. Day, we demand that you, in the
interests of the people of the state of Montana, and to the end that
the present. reign of the plunderbundtl in this state be ended, ilhumediate
ly discharge E. ('. l)ay front the office of United States attorney for
the district of Mointtana and replace him with some one of integrity who
will follow your orders and the wishes of the people and prosecute the
food hoarders and the profiteers.

Senator Knox Advises Sen

together as Only Safe
Way to Deal With It.
Wiiashington, Aug. 3..- ---The Ieace
treaty was assailed againll yeosterday,
by its foes inl the senate, with the
foreign relations colllnittee approv
ing three more textual amendlnments
to its provisions and Senator Knox
of Pennsylvania, a republican mlem
ber of the committee, advising the
senate the only safe way t.o deal with
iit was to reject it altogether.
Acting by a vote of nine to eight
in each case, the committee adopted
amendments designed to equalize the
British and American representation
in the league of nations, to prevent
the British dominions from pracitici
pating in a league decision affecting
any one of them, and to curtail the
power of the American representa
tive on the reparations crnoiiiiission
which is to collect Germany's repara
tion bill.
