No. 66 STRIKERS CONTROL THE SITUATION IN UTAH; SPRYJLSCENE Governor Attempts to Prevent Bloodshed But He Is Unable to Open Negoti ations With Foreigners Salt Lake City, Sept. 19.—Noon of the second day of the strike at Bingham found Governor Spry with the state board of labor conciliation and arbitration, breaking speed records toward the camp, anxious to restore reason before the growing passions of the 5000 striking miners and a force of 250 deputy sheriffs led to loss of life or de struction of property. Word had come from Bingham that the chief deputy in charge had threatened to storm the miners' stronghold on the mountain at noon. The de sire of the state officials was to gain the scene and try ai' guinent and persuasion before a battle was precipitated. This morning's news indicated that the strikers were not bloodthirsty, but were enjoying their temporary as cendancy over their former bosses by relentless shooting and pushing intimidation to the limit of forbearance. There were stories of attempted murders, the stealing of 65 cases of dynamite from the storehouses at mines, of an order for the arrest of President Moyer and that armed miners had been directed to shoot the deputies to kill. One of these reports is known to be false and the rest do, not come from responsible sources. Efforts to open communication with the entrenched Greek miners failed. A newspaper man who started up the hill toward them was stopped by bullets. The leader of the Greeks attempted today to negotiate for the entire supply of arms in a Bingham general store. The leader was not at the conference with the governor this morning. The absence of a responsible head to speak for the miners is regarded as an unfavorable indication for peace nego. tiations. Salt Lake, Sept. 13.—The second day In the minera 1 strike at Bingham be gan with tho strikers In armed posaea slon of all the mines. There v.as des ultory firing all night but no Injury to persons or property. Governor Spry arrived here on a special train this morning and went Immediately to the executive office, where he called a conference of the sheriff, secretary of state, attorney general, adjutant gen eral and state board of conciliation and arbitration. He said no steps would be taken to send the militia un til It appeared necessary to protect life or property. Yesterday some of the Bingham mine operators made representations to Sheriff Sharp of Salt Lako county which caused him to arrange a meeting with C. S. Tlngey, secretary of state; A. R. Barnes, attorney general; John K. Hardy, secretary to the governor; R. C. Gemmoll, assistant manager of the Utah Copper company, and Clar ence E. Allen, assistant mine manager of the United States company. Gover nor Spry was in the southern part of the state keeping some speaking en gagements. At this meeting, held In Salt Lake, the situation was discussed and a state ment was telegraphed to Governor Spry. Sheriff Sharp made no request for state troops, but indicated to the governor that the forces at his com mand would not be sufficient to con trol the thousands of idle men in this camp. Sheriff Sharp dispatched reinforce ments to hie little army of deputies. "With a force numbering 35 men the officers In camp started a party on the rounds of the mines to draw the fires which had been left burning under many of the boilers. This party had scarcely started up the mountain on which most of the mines are located when bullets began to spatter on the hillside In front of them and It was discovered the strikers had been busy building breastworks in commanding positions at each side of the narrow gulch In which this town hides itself. The firing and the menacing shouts of the fortified miners convinced the officers that the boiler fires should bo left unattended for the time being and they left. Made Informal Demand. The Bingham miners made an Infor mal demand several weeks ago for a flat increase of wages in all depart ments of 50 cents a day. On September 1 the Utah Copper company announced an Increase of 25 cents a day for all labor, and the other employers adopted the same scale. This was not satis factory to a majority of the men, and agitation for the full 60-c«nt raise con tinued. Ten days ago a union meeting was held, at which a strike vote was ordered. The strike proposition car ried overwhelmingly, and the result of the ballot was forwarded td the execu tive committee of the Western Federa tion of Miners at Denver. It brought President Charles H. Moyer of the fed (.Continued on Tags Three.) WILSON TO MEET TY COBB DURING DETROIT VISIT Candidate Looks Forward With Pleasure to the In troduction-Addresses the Business Men of Chicago.
