TWO SIDES OF A CASE.
Rev. Charles M. Sheldon of
Kansas, in an article In the Den
ver News on the Cblorado strike
situation, reaches some remarka
ble Conclusions, which may be
briefly summed up as follows:
The miners struck without just
cause: they had no right to strike
because they have money in
the banks and live well; they even
eat “the most expensive cuts of
meat” and “high priced fruits and
Practically every act of violence
has been committed by union
Most of the men deported were
men without moral standing in 1
The mine owners are angels; the j
union miners are murderous dev- j

the sensational “minister” who a
few years ago was placed in
charge of the Topeka Capital for
a week to run the paper “as Christ
would run it.” As a grafting
scheme it proved a great success
and the "reverend” gentleman
lined his pockets with several
thousands of ill gotten coin. Af
terward he very fittingly dropped
completely out of sight and his
very existence was probably un
known to any but himself until
now, when he comes forward and
attempts to again gain prominence
by telling what he thinks he
knows of conditions in Colorado.
It is safe to say that no more
perverted statement of the Colo
rado stride and* existing iponditions
has uvbt.cu n It would al
so L r 1 aious to give it serious j
cons..'- a on. '"MB thf-fur* that
the * r stamps himself as a
fool or a knave in nearly every ;
line of bis article—especially
where be says that the miners
had no right to stride because they
lyere too well fed and had money
in the banks, this being a fair sam
ple of the argument which he
^ses against them.
On the other hand, in the same
issue of the News, an article from
the pen of William English Wall
ing is published. Mr. Walling is
not a fake gospel expounder, but
is a resident of' Denver and a close
student of industrial conditions in
• • r ti ■ < i i
He says that the Colorad<
strikes have not been lawless but
on the contrary are among the
most peaceful ever known, this
ijeing the opinion of the impartial
citizens of the State and of the
investigators who have gone to
the field, “Rev.'’ Sheldon except
ed, by the way. Mr. Walling
States that it is a war against
unionism and striking is being
prosecuted as a crime. He cites
the case of a man named Davis,'
a member of the Miners’ Union
Executive (bomraittee at Cripple
Creek wSo was arrested' and held j
Several months without trial.
When finally brought into court
the prosecuting attorney admitted
that he bad no'evidence whatever
against him. In 'the 'meantime
Davis’, wife, in constant fear ot
her husband's life, gave prema
ture birth to a child and both have
Mr. W’alliog says that there
have been no acts of lawlessness
proved against the Miners’_ Union
since the strike began and that
there have bAe'ti nh'mobs add no ,
riots except \hose of the Citiaens’
Alliancei’A^ith?? <hf Iteration
or its officers bate been ‘codvicted
of any of the innumerable' offenses |
with which they have been’Charg
ed. He concludes as* f<Jll6Ats:
“At an enormbus expense the
unions have been driven from the |
principal mines add staeltCfS of
the State. There is dot” a * onion
outside the niines that has failed
to suffer from the’ tamers”' defeat.
But the union feelidg hitttr add
the union spirit unbfoked. They
feel they are fighting a battlet for j
all the unions of the country, and
they know that no cause has eve/ jl
received such a powerful and
united support from the working
The above are fhir statements
of the views of “Rev.” Charles M.
Sheldon and Williatn English
Walling on the Colorado situation.
Both sides of the case are given.
Is there any question which should
be believed — the mountebank
minister from Kansas, or the resi
dent of Colorado, an observer and
student of conditions in that State,
who should certainly know where
of he speaks?
SAN FRANCISCO KNOCKERS.
The San Francisco “knocking”
contingent seems to be hammer
ing Goldfield as it did Tonopah in
the early days of that camp. But
there is always the consolation
that it makes no difference. To
nopah suffered very little from
the efforts of the San Francisco
knockers to injure the camp and
Goldfield will not be affected in
the least. The mines are here
and they will answer for them
selves. San Francisco’s aid is not
needed, nor that of any other
place for that matter. In the
meantime Eastern people are tak
ing advantage of the opportuni
ties which Goldfield offers for
profitable investment and they
will make money while the long
eared San Franciscans lay back
their aural appendages and try to
bray down the biggest and richest
gold camp on earth. It’s amusing
now and will be more so when
they commence falling over each
other in their effort to get in on
the good things of Goldfield. And
this time will not be very long in
Tbe influx pf investors, mining
men and those looking for busi
ness locations and opportunities
continues, bnt tbe migration hith
erward is slight to what it will be
when the blockade is fully raised
Goldfield is today a magnet which
is drawing people from all parts of
the United States. One would be
rash to hazard a prediction of the
town’s population by the end of

The Denver Mining Record is
sued an exceptionally fine special
edition devoted to the Mining
Congress. The Record gives a
great deal of attention to the
mines of Goldfield and is doing a
good work in the way of helping
to advertise this camp.
Wesley Paul of Salt Lake City
announces the publication of a
book entitled: “Mines and min

It is to be illustrated with half
tone engravings of the twp camps.
