AU INDEPENDENT PROGRESSIVE JOURNAL THIRTIETH YEAR 1G PAGES PHOENIX, ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY '28, 1919 16 PAGES VOL. :., NO. 33 THE GESIISi LABOR PUT II Robertson, Labor Minister, Denounces Insincerity of Winnipeg Strikers Sees Scheme to Involve All Canada Says Movement Undeserving of Sympathy CALGARY, AlUu. May 27. (By the Canadian Press) The open charge was made today by Gideon Robertson, Canadian minister of labor, i na tele cram to Mayor Marshall of Calgary, that the present strike situation in Canada is a move by radicals to as sume control of governmental affairs. In his tolegTam, sent from Winnipeg, Mr. Robertson charged the "one big union," movement is the underlying cause of the whole trouble. "I have very carefully considered the '"cause of the existing general strike," tlio message said, "which the strike committee claimed was called for the. purpose of forcing upon certain em ployers recognition of the workmen's right of collective bargaining. The employers affected proved con clusively that they had no objecteion to their employes organizing them selves, and these employers have dealt with committees of their employes elected as representatives of the var ious crafts concerned in their Industry. The employers have furthermore ex pressed perfect willingness to meet and confer with executive officers of the " various organizations if desired, but they refused to deal with a body known as the Metal Trades council, which is elected by other employes outside of their own. "Twenty-four htfurs before the sym pathetic strike was called, the pre mier of Manitoba urged an adjustment of the matters in dispute by arbitra tion, and in a final attempt to avert a general strke, asked the committee if they would cancel the strike pro vided the employers would agree to recognize the Metal Trades council. To this question a negative reply was given. "Subsequently, events have proved conclusively the move behind the gen eral strike effort was the purpose of assuming control and direction of In dustrial affairs, also of municipal, pro vincial and federal activities, so far as they were being carried on in this city, and with the avowed intention of A extending that control to a wider field. "1 have no hesitation in saying the 'one big union' movement is the under lying cause of the whole trouble, and that the Winnipeg general strike de serves no sympathy or support from the labor organizations outside of Winnipeg." Borden Cautions Patience OTTAWA, May 27. Sir Robert Bor den, Canadian premier, discussing the Canadian labor situation before the house of commons today, called on em ployers "to bear In mind," in dealing with their employes, thel a.bor program alopted by the peace conference at Versailles. Sir Robert said he realized the stress and strain of war had increased the difficulty of effecting adjustments be tween employers and employes, but urged both sides-to make every effort to reach a settlement. Strikers Are Discharged WINNIPEG, May 27. The Winnipeg city council today formally notified every unionized city employe partici pating in the general strike that they arc no longer connected with the mu nicipal government service, and that those who desire to apply for reinstate ment will be classed as new employes. All seniority rights have been for feited, the council decided. Organiza tion of new city forces wll begin Thursday. Every leading development in the Winnipg general strike situation today was related to the governmental move ment to deal directly with the great body of union workers. City officials, Including the majority of the council, took steps for reorgan izing the personnel of municipal utili ties. Every city employe who obeyed the command of the union leaders to strike was today stricken from the city payrolls. These persons were notified that they have the option o fapplying for city positions; that their applica tions will not be considered unless they agree to return to work with the under standing that they will not- join any sympathetic strike movement in the future.

GERMAIN, May 27 (By The Associated Press) The allied coun cil's reply to the protest of Dr. Ren ner, head of the Austrian delega tion, against the delay in the pre sentation of the peace terms, has been received by the Austrian dele gation. It is understood that the reply gives formal notice, of the presentation of the terms on Friday. LANSING. GIVES iHISH DELEGATES PARIS, May 27 (By the Associated Press) The efforts of ex-Governor Dunne of Illinois, Frank P. Walsh and Michael F. Ryan, representing Irish societies in the United States, to se cure safe conducts for Edward De Va lera, Arthur Griffith and Count Plun kett to come to Paris to present the Irish case to the peace conference, ended today with a written communi cation from Secretary of State Lan sing to Mr. Walsh. After acknowledg ing the original request, Secretary Lansing says: , "I immediately took steps to ac quaint myself witti the facts of the case which transpired before the matter was brought to my attention by your letter. I am informed that when the question of approaching the British authorities, with a view to procuring the safe conducts in question, was first considered, every effort was made In an informal way to bring us in friendly touch with the British representatives here, although, owing to the nature of the case, it was not possible to treat the matter officially. Delegates Turned Down "The British authorities having con sented that you and your colleagues should visit England and Ireland, al though your passports only were good for France, every facility was given to you to take the journey. Before you returned, however, reports were re ceived of certain utterances made by you and your colleagues during your visit to Ireland. "These utterances, whatever they may have been, gave, as I am in formed, deepest offense to those per sons with whom you were seeking to deal Consequently, it has seemed use less to make any further effof t ii: Connection with the requests which you desire to, make. "In view of the situation thus cre ated, I regret to inform you that the American representatives feel that any further effort on their part, connected with this matter, would be futile and therefore unwise." In reply, Mr. Walsh wrote Secretary Lansing a letter, declaring that the Irish delegation had not authorized anyone to make an effort to bring its members into friendly relations with the British representatives in Paris or elsewhere, and adding: "We also beg to advise you that at no time, in Paris or elsewhere, have we sought to deal privately or unofficially wit!) any persons relative to the pur pose of our mission." Walsh Makes Denials Mr. Walsh's letter then reproduced a letter submitted to the state depart ment, previous to the obtaining of passports, in which the object o the visit to Paris was stated, and recites the fact that on arrival, he advised a letter to President Wilson, asking the president to secure safe codnucts for De Valera, and the others. The letter goes on to say that after an interview with President Wilson, the matter was taken up with Colonel House, through whom the same request was, made. "The implications in your letter," says Mr. Walsh, "that any person was acting unofficially, privately or secret ly is. therefore, erroneous. Attempted negotiations on behalf of Ireland in such fashion wonld be not only vio lative of our instructions, but obnox ious to the principle to which we stead fastly adhere, with multitudes of our fellow citizens, that a just and per manent peace can only be procured through covenants openly arirved at." The letter concludes with a request for the names of the persons offended by the utterances of the delegation in Ireland, and denies that the delegation made utterances not strictly in con formity with the purpo8es stated in the application for passports. o FLAGSTAF, Ariz., May 27. Adalto ni Bigue No. 1 and Adaltoni Bigue No. 2, the two Navajos charged with the murder of Charles Hubbell, trader and brother of former State Senator Lo renzo Hubbell, were given a prelimi nary examination today before R. J. Kidd, Justice of the peace, and held to answer to the next term of the federal court opening in June. Bonds were fixed at $20,000 each, which the In dians were unable to furnish. James Giddinfs, a cattleman, testi fied that No. 1 confessed to him that he had killed Hubbell and burned the trading post near Oraiba, No. 1 is known as a medicine man in his tribe and is about 22 years of age. No. 2 is his younger brother. Their father is Chief Utiltony. Hubbell was killed the night of March 23 last and his trading post burned, it was believed by officers, to conceal the crime. Indian tracker followed a trail of two men from the scene, which led to a lonely cave in the mountains, and notified officers, who were organizing a heavy posse to capture the suspects, when two Indian police took them into custody. The Indian officers swam the swollen wat ers of the Little Colorado' river, ar rested their men and then the four swam back, the prisoners being then lodged in the jail at Leupp. Later they were removed to Flagstaff.

The policy of the navy department lor a fleet "second to none in the. world" has lfn temporarily abandoned. Secretary Daniels, appearing before the house naval affairs committee to day, to outline the needs of his depart ment for the next fiscal year, recom mended that the entire 1919 three-year building program of ten battleships and ten battle cruisers be abandoned, say ing that the trend of the world towards universal peace and the operation of the proposed league of nations made competition for supremacy of the seas no longer necessary. The naval secretary asserted that as the United States had taken a foremost part in promoting the league of nations plan, it would be this nation's duty to show faith in the covenant by refusing to authorize further large additions to the sea forces. Work on the 1916 pro gram, he said, should be completed as soon as possible, but the 1919 program, which he etimated would involve an ex penditure of more than a billion dollars, should be ' : wiped off the slate." . "There can be no half-way ground," he said. "Either we must have the league to safeguard the interests of ev ery nation or the biggest navy in the world." ' Mr. Daniels said if the United States did not launch new building programs, other nations would follow the example and change their naval plans , ac cordingly. Great Britain, France and Italy, he asserted, were waiting on the United States. The secretary touched upon almost every feature of the navy's work in the war and will continue his testimony tomorrow. There has been no change, he said, respecting a division of the fleet, half of which will be known as the Atlantic and the other half as the Pacific. The divisions will be equal as to dread naughts and ships of every type be said. Members endeavored to obtain from the secretary an expression as to whether the navy had formed an opin ion as to the future of the submarine, but he said this had not been con sidered. The real big thing that should have attention, Mr. Daniels said, is aviation. He declared that the navy should have at least forty-five million dollars this year, for experimental purposes mostly, so that by December it would be pos sible to outline specifically the exact needs for the next year or two. o WASHINGTON, May 27 Election by the senate tomorrow of Senators Pen rose, Pennsylvania, and Warren, Wy oming, as chairman of the finance and appropriations committees, respective ly, is regarded certain, as a result of the open conference today of republican senators. The progressives, led by Senator Bor ah, Idaho, were routed by a vote of 34 to S, in their effort to supplant Senator Penrose, and in private statements lat er, agreed that their fight would not be taken to the senate floor. Republican Leader Lodge plans to present in the senate tomorrow the re publican committee assignments, with every prospect of a solid vote for the republican majority for their adoption. The committee nominations are to e made en masse, but the republican plan of avoiding a separate vote for chair manships, required by senate rules, was threatened tonight by opposition of the democrats, who were said to be prepared to demand separate votes on the chairmanships, so as to require the progressives to record themselves squarely on Senators Penrore and Warren. PEKROSE ELECTI IS ASSURED .TODAY soi tioh tuy is still in Dim - BERLIN. Hay JG, (Monday) (By the Associated Press) The question whether Germany will sign the peace treaty or not, it was believed here to night, depends altogether on whether the allied and associated powers will agree to a plesbiscite in all disputed territories, and the reception of Ger many into the league of nations as a member with an equal vote. Both the issues are made the car dinal features of the German reply, wheih has been approved by the cabinet and Count von Brockdorff-Kantzau, and his associates, and which is being put into shape for presentation within the next thirty-six hours. The reply, in general, will reaffirm the adherence of Germany to the prin ciples laid down in the armistice con ditions, and will lay especial weight on the right of self-determination, which Germany is willing to grant to all con tested sections of her frontiers. The allies also will be asked to abide by the decision of a popular vote in Austria on the question of union with Ger many. Some of the more prominent economic and financial issues sug gested in the allied peace teems, Ger many is willing to have adjusted, by the league of nations, in which she ex pects to become a member on a basis of equality. If the world league were based on any other scheme of membership, it was declared to the correspondent. in authoritative quarters tonight, Ger many would be forced to consider it as an alliance against her- ALLIED I IS PARIS, May 27. (By the Associated Press) The council of four and Japan have offered Admiral Kolchak, head of the Omsk government, money and sup plies to maintain the all-Russian gov ernment, provided he promises to hold elections for a constituent assembly as soon as he reaches Moscow, or, if con ditions are too disturbed to hold elec tions, to reconvoke the former constit uent assembly. The proviso also carries with it the necessity for Kolchak to recognize, the independence of Poland and Finland, and to come to an, amicable arrange ment with other existing groups in Russia regarding their future status within or without the future Russian state. PARIS, May 27.(By the Associated Press) Dispatches received in Paris today announce that the reversal suf fered by the forces of Admiral Kol chak, the anti-bolshenki commander in Russia, was only temporary and that Kolchak s armies again are ad vancing against the bolsheviki, ,who are falling back on the Volga line. A dispatch from Paris Monday re potted Kolchak as having met witlt heavy opposition near Samara, and being compelled to fall back along the railroad toward Ufa. o CHICAGO WELCOMES HER OWN CHICAGO, May 27. Nearly one mil lion people welcomed the first contin gent of more than 6.000 men of the 33rd (Prairie) division, composed of former Illinois national guardsmen, home from war today, in the greatest demonstration the city or state has ever known. Governor Lowden. Mayor Thompson and Major General Wood and their staffs review the 'troops. Following the review the troops left for Camp Grant for demobilization. HE GOES!" EUROPE At a Glance By the Associated Press Germany's counter proposals to the peace treaty, comprisintr a volume of goodly proportions, are i:i readiness for delivery to the peace conference. - No official announcement has been made pf the time when Count von Brockdorff-Kantzau wi! 1 make Ger many's final plea for amelioration of some of the conditions of the treaty, which are declared to be too severe for fulfillment, but the time cannot be extended beyond noon of Thursday, when the limit for reply expires. Late dispatches from Berlin indicate that the German document is to contain manifold representations . and argu ments for a lessening of the severity of the terms, not alone from the financial and economic standpoint'!, but also with regard to disarmament, both on land and sea, but a plan for mutualizing, under the league of nations, warcraft and merchant shipping of the world's nations."- Territorial relinquishments also are to be argued again. ' Friday is to witness the receipt by the Austrians of the terms of the peace treaty that has been formulated for the former empire of the Hapsburgs. The plea of the chief of the Austrian dele gation for haste by the allies in making known their terms probably is respon sible for Friday having teen chosen as the day for the Austrians to appear be fore the peace congress, it previously having been believed that the ceremony would not take place until next week. In anticipation of the possibility of a declination on the part of the Germans to sign the peace treaty. Marshal Foch, the commander-in-chief of the allied and associated armies, has made a fur ther inspection of the occupied area in the west and its general vicinity and reported his observations to Minister of War Clemenceau. The landing of Amer ican and British marines at Danzig probably indicates that another step to meet any eventuality haji been taken. The question whether the German plenipotentiaries will affix their sig natures to the document is still a mooted mystery in Germany. Confirmation has been received of the report that the allied and associated powers are to lend aid in supplies and money to Admiral Kolchak, the ahti- bolsheviki leader in Russn, conditional upon the establishment of a constituent assembly and a lawful government in his country. A report from Viborg is to the effect that the soviet authorities in Petrograd have been overthrown. There is no confirmation of the report. -o GRADD Hi ISOLATID STOCKHOLM, May 27. (By the American Press Association.) The sound of a heavy bombardment has been heard within the last few days in the direction of Petrograd and Kron stadt according to advices received from Viborg. The advices report a panic among the bolshevik leaders in Petrograd, a number of whom, it is asserted, have fled with state funds. Petrograd, according to the report is in the hands of Chines;e, Lett and i Tinnich tpHr who are ;aid to have J mastered the soviet authorities after I heavy street fighting. Workmen are patrolling the workmen's district to prevent the Chinese from pillaging. The bolsheviki have placarded the city, threatening tq execute the bour geois class if they are compelled to leave the former capital. 4329 MEN ENTRAIN .

That six Mexican miners were killed and the re mainder of the population driven out of the camp of the Monte Crista) mine. 30 miles south of Moctezuma, capital of the Moctezuma district of Sonora, Mexico, last Wednesday, when SO Yaqui Indiana raided the camp, was the information reaching here today from the south. The first report re ceived here yesterday was that the 1 capture was peaceable, the Indians en- i tering the camp at daylight and over powering the inhabitants without a fight It was learned today that the attack was a surprise, but that the Mexicans attempted resistance and were driven into the neighboring hills with a loss of eix men. James Lord, American manager of the mine, remained in the camp, having taken no part in the defense. His life was spared, but he was stripped of his clothing. The Indians carried away valuables, including food and explo sives, and destroyed or damaged much of the portable property left behind, it was said. "William" Morgan, reported from Nogales to have been attacked by Yaqui Indians and badly wounded, later being taken to Empalme for medical treatment is believed here to be Charles Morgan, a well known Sonora American. Americans here, familiar with the residents of that section, say Charles Morgan is the only American of that surname known to live in the south part of the state. ' ' BBY WITHDRAWS PERMIT TO MEXICO EL PASO, May 27. Governor Hobby has withdrawn his approval of the sending of Mexican troops through Texas, according to a telegram signed by him and received by State Senator Dudley here this evening. The telegram says that the governor regrets having given his approval and has withdrawn it in view of information sent him today by Dudley, in a strong protest against the proposed action. Senator pointed out that the Colum bus raid in 1916 immediately followed action similar to that proposed by the state department and predicted that any such action would be followed by the killing of all Americans in the ter ritory controlled by Francisco Villa, Protests against the passage of the Mexican troops were wired today to the state department, to Governor Hobby of Texas, and to Governor Larrazolo of New Mexico, . by Mayor Charles Davis, leading business men of EI Paso and Americans having interests in Mexico. Foreigners having interests in north ern Mexico and residents here have wired the representatives of their na tions In Washington, asking them to use their influence with the state de partment to prevent the proposed ac tion. All interested point out that there are more than one hundred Americans and others in the country controlled by villa and many million dollars in property completely at his mercy, that Villa has committed no outrages against foreigners in his latest cam paign. They fear the result of any action that he would consider a de parture from strict neutrality by the United States. MOB STORMS YALE CAMPUS NEW HAVEN, Conn.. May .27.

V Lisbon En Fete, as Big Bird Appears on Horizon Leg Made Without Trouble Destroyers Report Prog ress With Machine Like Precision Navy Congratulates LISBON, May 27. (By the As sociated Press) The achievement of the first trans-Atlantic air flight, with Lisbon as the first European stopping point, has aroused the enthusiasm of the Portuguese as no event has stirred them in many years. When the American seaplane NC-4 came up the Tagus river this evening, the populace, crowding all places of vantage, gave full expression to their enthusiasm by cheers of wel- -come, the bombing of guns and the ' ringing of bells. For days, the people of Lisbon had been awaiting the completion of this momentous voyage over the Atlantic, and, though disappointed from day to day, because of the inability of Commander Read's craft to continue its flight, because of unfavorable weather conditions, yet each day they looked hopefully - toward the west for the coming of the Americans. Early in the day word was flashed that the NC-4 had started and at intervals there were bulle tins of the progress made. The whole city was en fete and daring the latter hours virtually, all busi ness was abandoned by those who crowded everywhere to witness the arrival. Quieted by ekHlful hand the American plane, which had cov ered the distance between the pro tecting destroyers along the route with clock-like regularity, swept in over Lisbon and settled down gracefully near the cruiser Ro chester. ' It was not forgotten by many of those who witnessed the triumph, that another man, equally stout hearted, the Australian Hawker, . was being welcomed in England on his return from a wonderful trans-Atlantic flight, more spec- ' taetrlar but not so successful, and there was praise for both. WASHINGTON, May 27. Blazing the way of the first air trail from the western to the eastern hemisphere, the United States navy seaplane, NC-4, under Lieutenant Commander Albert Cashing Read, swept into the harbor at Lisbon, Portugal, today, the first air ship of any kind to have crossed the Atlantic ocean under its own power and through its -natural element Taking the air at Ponta del Gada, Azores, at 6 : 18 a. m. Washington time, on the last leg of the transoceanic por tion of the voyage from Rockaway Beach. Long Island, to Plymouth, Eng land, the NC-4 covered the 800 miles in 9 hoars, and 43 minutes, maintaining an average speed of better than eighty knots an hour. The total elapsed fly ing time from New Foundland to Lis bon, was 2t hours and 41 minutes. At the first opportunity, the big plane will continue to Plymouth. 775 nautical miles to the north. Possibly Comman der Read can start tomorrow. To the navy department however, it makes little difference when he completes the journey. The great object of all the effort lavished on the undertaking navigation of a seaplane across the At lantic through the air has been ac complished. Twentieth century trans portation has reached a new pinacle and the United States navy has led the way. Naval officials emphasized that the long delay at the Azores was due to the weather and to no weakness of the machine or its daring crew, nor to any failure of the carefully laid plans of the department to guide the flyers to their destination. The fourteen destroy ers strung from Ponta del Gada to Lis bon reported with machine-like precis ion today, -o the flight continued. The plane was never off its course and there was no moment when officials in Washington did not know to within a few miles where it was in the air. Destroyers Abie Allies To maintain adequate communication for this stage of the Journey, the de stroyers stock to their posts after the flying boat had passed, relaying back to Ponta del Gada reports from ships far ther eastward. The chain was not brok en until after the plane was safely moored for the night near the cruiser Rochester at Lisbon. For the next few hundred miles of their epoch-making journey. Comman der Read and his crew will be within sight of the Portuguese or Spanish coasts in the sweep northward. Skirting the coast of Cape Fimsterre they will head out across the Bay of Biscay to sight Brest the most westerly point of. France, thence direct to Plymouth. The destroyers that will guide them across the bay were already in position to night provided with the flares and bombs that have made the trip safe, thus far, except for the fog that forced the other two machines of the seaplane division, the NC-1 and NC-3, out of the flight after they had safely negotiated virtually uie entire distance trom jsew Foundland to the Azores. Continues This Morning PONTA DEL GADA, May 27 (By the Associated Press) The arrival ol the NC-4 at Lisbon marks the com pletion of the first trans-Atlantic ait flight in history, with the coveted honor going to a machine designed, buili and manned by Americans. Flotilla Commander Wortman, at Ponta del Gada has received a radio mesage relayed from the plane, saying: "We are safely on the other side ol the pond." Later messages reported the crew ali well and gave brief details of the ar rival in Portugal. The engines workei splendidly and apparently there was no untoward incident of any kind. The plane covered the distance at a speed of more than eighty miles an hour. As soon as the news, was received here. Admiral Jackson ordered all the war craft in the harbor to blow their whistles and sirens. This was kept up for five minutes, the sailors and of ficers meanwhile cheering the great American triumph.
