' Wednesday, Septemder 9, 1908. QHARLES A. HOPP Editor and Proprietor. PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY The Western Federation The various trials against members of the Western Federation of Miners for participation in dynamitings and mnrders have come to an end without securing a single conviction; and yet the Western Federation itself has been folly convicted in the minds of the people. This was fully brought out by the manner in which the news of the recent aoquittal of Steve Adams, and of tho death of Geo. Pettibone was re ceived. Both of these men had, accord ing to the decision of the juries, suffer- ! ed great hardships, having been con fined for a very long period in jail without being convicted of any crime; and yet the public i^wasting no sym pathy over either case. The public feels that these men were mixed up in a bad business, and while it does not question the justice of the courts In deciding that no convicting evidence i was presented against these men, still it considers the men themselves, and all their associates, as social outcasts ? men who have forfeited ail respect. The strength of this feeling has been felt by all those interested in the Western Federation of Miners. Their recent meeting in Denver was a very stormy session and it is evident that "the house is divided agaiust itself." One party, and that stronger, is for cleansing the Union forever of Hay wood and Haywoodism; another is for clinging to the old methods and am bitions; between the two is Moyer, who seeks now to hide his well-worn bloody 1 shirt of anarchy under the mantle of conservatism. How the struggle will end we do not venture to prophesy, but we feel assured that the Western : Federation of Miners, as a power for I evil, has had its wings cloaely clipped. ; It Is to be hoped that the Federation will rise from its disgrace and become a power for good in the land. - A con dition of non-unionism has probably ! passed forever from our miniug dis tricts, and so the best thing for all concerned is that there should be a good union which will zealously safe- j guard the interests of the miners, with out attempting to usurp the preroga tives of the mine owuers. If the West- 1 ern Federation has the mobility aud the honest strength to shake off its old habits and seize this new opportunity, it will always be a power and a benefit; if not, some other union will undoubt edly supplant it in the Western mining districts.? Mining Seiouce. Someone seems to have a grudge against the water supply of the town of Douglas. Some time ago the car cass of a dog was found in one of the pipe lines, it having been washed down from the main tank, and no longer ago than last Monday the screen that pro tects the mouth of the Lawson creek flume was staffed full of sticks and rubbish. If these thlugs are done by a man, he should and probably will get a rough handling if he is ever found "out. However, it may only be the work of boys. If so it is time for the parents to get busy, and teach their children that they should let the water works and all parts of It strictly alone. The health of the town and each and every person in the town depends on the supply of fresh, pure water. Tell the ohildren to keep their dirty little fingers out of it A careful watoh will be kept from this on and the first per son caught meddling with the water ?apply in any way will be given a taste of the punishment which the law pre scribes for each acts. Let this be a warning.
