MINES AT FORBES, COLORADO,
BUT GURRDS DRIVE THEM AWAY.

MORE MINERS ARE
RETURNING TO WORK
Trinidad, Colo., Nov. S. Reports of
an attack by strikers upon the mili
tary guard at Forbes early today were
received this morning by Adjutant
General John Chase this morning.
Firing from the hills began at 11:30
last night, the shots being directed at
the fan house. The fire was returned
and the attackers retired. At 1:30
o'clock this morning the attack was
resumed and the guards succeeded in
driving away the party a second time.
Several shots struck the fan house,
but no one was injured. It is believed
that the object of the assault was to
destroy the fan house and cut off the
mine ventilation, thereby tying up
mine operations. A searching investi
gation of the affair is being made to
day. Preliminary steps for the military
operation of the coal mining district
west and south of Trinidad were
taken this morning by General Chase
Immediately upon his return from
Denver, where he was called yester
day to attend a meeting of the mili
tary board. The camps of Starkvllle,
Sopris, Morley, Valdez, Segundo,
Primrose, Cokedale, Tercio and sever
al smaller properties will he afforded
military protection. There will be no
withdrawal of troops .from WalBen
burg and other districts and ample
forces will be left at the Trinidad
camps to reinforce any detail at out
lying points, if assistance is needed.
Cavalry will continue to patrol the
streets of Trinidad at night.
Summarizing the situation this
morning, General Chase announced
his determination to at once "compose
the entire district once."
The national uard is helng recruit

the state. General Chase announced,

action would be instituted at once.

striking miners to work.
n. K Cory, marshal at Segundo, was
attacked, relieved of his rifle and fired
upon by strikers this morning, accord
ing to a report received here.
Pedro Armijo, a miner who has
been working in the Aguilar district,
was killed shortly before noon today
by a shot fired from ambush on the
outskirts of Aguilar while being es
corted out of town by Marshal J. T.
Davis. Davis had just rescued Armijo
from a crowd of strikers and was aid
ing him in getting out of danger. An
Italian who was accompanying Davis,
received a slight scalp wound.
Armijo had come Into town earlier
in the day to purchase groceries. He
was surrounded by a crowd of strikers
and was being roughly handled when
Marshal Davis Interfered. The strik
ers refused to give up the miner until
the officer agreed to conduct him to
the edge of town and see to it that he
did not come back.
The strikers then fell back with
the exception of two Italians who
followed close at the marshal's heels.
The quartette had just reached the out
skirts of town when a rifle shot rang
out from the hills, and Armijo fell
dead. A second shot struck one of
the Italians and inflicted a slight
The body is In the hands of the coro

report of the occurrence.
Will bell Mine.
Denver, Colo., Nov. 8. Frank N.
Gove, attorney for the Victor-American
Fuel company, stated today that
the southern Colorado mine operators
are prepared to make a formal offer
to the city of Denver or the state of
Colorado to sell any one of their mines
to the public, at a valuation to be
fixed by appraisers appointed by the
governor. Since the beginning of the
coal strike It frequently has been sug
gested that some form of public oper
ation of coal mines be resorted to in
order to relieve the coal shortage.
WHITMAN WARNED TO

New York, Nov. 8. It was learned
last night that District Attorney Whit

"You'd better stop this thing; your

traced to a public pay station in an
east side store. The message was
only one of a number that have reach

SAN JUAN FARMERS SOUND CALL TO
JIRMS AGAINST THE HOSTILE INDIANS
The sturdy farmers of San Juan

to emulate the example of the gallant
pioneers in facing the savage beast
and fighting the hostile Indians.
A disnatch received by the New
Mexcaa from the Farmington "Enter-
prise" snortly before uoou, states:
"Preparations are being made all
along San Juan valley to move in arms
at once to Ship Rock Indian Agency,
35 miles below Farmington if the
band of Indians who are on the war
path carry out their threats.
"Trouble has been brewing for some
time over the arrest of several In
dians." As stated in the New Mexican yester
day, the "trouble which has been brew

among the Indians, the medicine men
and to liquor, all of which have been
frowned upon by the government offi

U. S. Marshal Leaves.
TT. S. Marshal Hudspeth left this
morning over the Denver and Kio

Owing to the fact that no train will
leave Durango, Colorado, tomorrow,
Sunday, Mr. Hudspeth can not reach
Farmington until late Monday after
noon and then he will have to travel
35 miles by motor or stage to reach
Shiprock Indian agency.
The other plan, going to Gallup by
train, and then motoring or riding
across the country for 130 miles to

probably have taken as long. The
trip through the Navajo reservation is
said to be the most dismal, gloomy
and forbidding journey that can be
taken In the United States.
