RECALL AVALANCHE MAY WIPE
OUT MILITARY DESPOTISM
Gov. E. M. Ammons.
By Charles Newell.
Denver, Col., Dec. 24. Forty thou
sand members of organized labor in
the state of Colorado have risen to
demand the recall of the governor of
the state, Elias M. Ammons.
They charge that he has replaced
civil law 'in the coal strike counties
of Huerfano and Las Animas, where
10,000 miners are battling for the
right to organize, with a military des
potism. They charge that Ammons has al
lowed General John Chase -to substi
tute his own will lor the Jaw of the
land and to indiscriminately imprison
tm- olulc in uits nitny jaus
of the strike district.
They charge that imprisoned citi
zens have been starved and tortured
in an effort to make them confess to
crimes they never committed.
They charge that women have
been insulted by the soldiers; one
man was forced to dig his own grave,
while jeering militiamen stood about
and mocked his suffering; homes
have been plundered, and mails have
been held up and the letters of union
men opened and read by the officers.
The state federation of labor called
a special convention to consider the
outrages complained of by the coal
Gharges against the militia were
formulated, and, led by aged" Mother
Jones, 1,000 union men and women
marched to the state capitol and call
ed Ammons before them and deluged
him with questions until he threat
ened to leave the room.
The governor refused to recall the
troops or General Chase.
The labor leaders immediately pre
pared and circulated recall petitions.
Ammons is the first governor elect
ed since the recall was adopted in
Colorado, and the people were quick
to decide on the use of their consti
tutional power when they became
convinced that he was being unfair
