FOR A WAGE -INCREASE Bingham, Utah, Sept r9. A foreign army, fortified and determined, held undisputed possession of. the copper. ltad and silver mines of Bingham when the second day of the miners' strike for a 25 cent increase in pay and recogni tion of their union dawned. Kfforts to open communication -with the entrenched Greek miners ,this afternoon failed. A newspaper man who started up the- hill toward them, was stopped by bullets. John Stan opolis, supposed to be one of the com manders of the "garrison, attempted to negotiate for the entire supply of guns in the Bingham general store. Noon of the second strike day found the governor of Utah, with the state board of labor conciliation and arbi tration breaking speed records toward the camp, anxious to restore order be fore the growing passions of the 3000 striking miners and the force of 250 deputy sheriffs should lead to loss of life or destruction of property. Threat of Open Battle. The chief deputy in charge had at that hour threatened to storm the miners' stronghold on the mountain side. It was the desire of the state officials to get to the scene and try persuasion before a battle should be precipitated. The morning's news indicated that the strikers were not bloodthirsty, but were enjoying their 'temporary ascend ancy over their former bosses by shooting recklessly and pushing intimi dation to the limit of forbearance. There were stories of attempted mur ders, the sequestration of 65 cases of dynamite taken from storehouses at the mines, an order for the arrest of president Moyer, of the miners, and that the armed miners had been di rected by their leaders to shoot depu ties to kill. Some of these reports are known to be false and the others do not come from responsible sources. Moyer Is Active. One rumor which created excitement for a time was that president iloyer, of the miners, had disappeared after his arrival In Salt .Lake, and that Clarence S. Darrow, who stopped in Salt Lake on his way east from the (.oast to deliver a"" lecture, was not to be found at his hotel. Moyer exploded this sensation by tisitiiig the office of goyeraor Spry just before the start -was -made for Bingham. His conv'.ersaUo'n with the btate officials waspri-ate, but he re marked to newspaper men after the conference th'at the strike would be settled. Mr, Darrow returned to his hotel at noon. He may meet Moyer thi3 afternoon, as it 'was he -who defended Moyer and other federation officers in the bteunenberg murder trial. Just before president Moyer took the J train this morning for Salt Lake to meet the governor, he was notified by deputy sheriff Steele that if the miners were not down from their mountain fortress soon, an attack would be made by the deputies. Strikers Die Breaslvtorlis. While the army, thousands strong and speaking many tongues, dug breastworks, strengtnened its picket lines and -worked out a rough form of military discipline during the morning there was activity in the offices of the mining company, the headquarters of the county and state officials., Tbere was much promiscuous firing from the pits opposite the Utah copper works this morning. About 1000 men were entrenched there. George- "W. Dwyer. superintendent of the Utah Cop per, and some of the bookkeepers went to the mine and were not molested. All of the property of the mining com panies is undamaged and the Utah Apex company is working as usual un der an agreement with the union. Deputy sheriffs were sent in as fast as they can be recruited. It was planned to make a flank attack on the :ifle pits as soon as sufficient force could be mustered to drive the strikers down the mountain into the canyon. Many reports- of the ferocity of the strikers, proved upon investigation this morning, to be exaggerations, due to excitement. "It was Said that superin tendent Schilling and his son. Jed, of the Utah Copper, were targets for at ltast 20 3hots when they started for the mine. It .appeared, however, that the shots -were fired to intimidate rather than to injure the men. They were not hit. GOVERNOR OF UTAH WILL SEEK TO ARBITRATE STRIKE Salt Lake City, Utah. Sept 19. Arbi tration of the Bingham strike -was dis cussed at the governor's conference to day. Governor Spry expressed reluct ance at the idea of calling the militia. It was stated that the Salt Lake com panies could be entrained in three hours if necessary. The Private secre tary of general manager Jackllng rep- T resentea tne utan uopper company, in the conference. That the militia should not be called out until all other means of settling the Bingham strike had been exhausted and that the board of conciliation and arbitration headed by the governor, should leave at once for Bingham to confer with the strike leaders, was the decision of the governor's conference this morning. A OX "UMOX 3IIXEIIS ARE ATTACKED WHILE AT A DANCE La Fayette, Colo.. Sept 19.

ASSERTS TRUSTS ARE FOR TAFT OR WILSON Trinidad, Colo., Sept. 19. A flat de nial attributed to Woodrow "Wilson, Democratic presidential nominee, in re- gard to the Progressive party's atti tude toward the trusts was made by Col. Rdosevelt in a speech here today. He said NGov. Wilson had made state ments -which were not in accordance with the facts. He said Gov. Wilson was quoted as saying in a speech at Sioux Falls, S. D., that the Progressive plan would work for the interests of the large corporations and would give them control, of the market for labor. ' -Saya Facts Are Misstated. Discussing this. Col. Roosevelt said: "Air. Wilson should be above mis stating facts in order to bolster up his arguments. Iii his speech yesterday he stated that the method now proposed by- the Progressives to regulate the trusts was suggested by Messrs. Gary and Perkins before the committee of the house of representatives to look into the steel trust. And he suggested that if was done to save the United States Steel corporation from the ne cessity of dding its business better than its competitors. "Neither of these statements is in ac cordance with facts. "Not Dnce only but again and again in messages to congress and in speech after speech when I was president, 1 advocated the method-advocated by the Progressives for handlinsr the trust question which is practically the prin ciple applied in the interstate, com merce commission. Asserts Trusts Oppose Him. "I -wish to call attention at this time to the fact that as far as I know the overwhelming majority of men who control both the steel corporation and the Harvester trust are supporting either Mr. Wilson himself or Mr. Taft. They are certainly opposing me; in deed, so far as I know, the only man connected with either organization who is supporting me is Mr. Pcrkin3 him self. "I do not question that the heads of both trusts are sincere in supporting Mr. Taft or Mr. Wilson, but I do wish to point out that Mr. Wilson and Mr. Taft occupy substantially the same at titude toward the trusts and this atti tude is tf such proved harmlessness that I am not in the least surprised that any trust which objects to honest and effective regulation should support eitner or.notn or tnem lnairrerently as against me. "Mr. "Wilson has not offered any ac tion differing in any essential point from the action taken by the present administration against the Standard Oil trust. The only result of that action taken by the present administration against the Standard Oil trust was to leganize that monopoly. Conditions of Laborers. Mr. WIlsoi. further said that unoVr I the Progressive platform the corpora- t tions -would control the market for la- bor and stated that the only chance for laoor is in competition. If Mr. Wilson were a man with a personal and working knowledge of the conditions and surroundings of labor, if he knew at first hand how working men live and what their needs are, such a state ment on his part -would be wholly in excusable. But Mr. Wilson's statement Is based evidently only. on abstract rea soning for -what a certain class of laissez faire political economists have written and it is made without even considering the workings of the laws now on the statute books. He says that the legislation we propose -would put the Working "man in the power of the big industrial concerns. Reckless Competition. "Has the interstate commerce law put the working man more in the power of the railroads? If it has, then it is Mr. Wilson's business to advocate the repeal of the interstate commerce law. If- it has not. and no man with an atom of sense imagines it has, then Mr. Wilson should in frank and manly fashion at once admit that he has made a rather absurd mistake. He is a be liever in the outworn doctrine of the benefits of unlimited and reckless com petition. As a matter of fact, every wise leader of labor and friend of la bor knows that such unlimited and reckless competition spells ruin for the majority of wage workers. That is why In the Progressive platform we ad vocate - the really practical measures for giving to the average vraj,. worker a living wage. "Mr. Wllpon is championing the cause of the big crooked trusts when he op poses the Progressive plank for extend ing the powers of government over the big trusts just as it is being extended over the railroads." WILSON NOW THINKS TIMES ARE CHANGING Governor of New Jersey, Who Practiced Law in Georgia, Will Meet Tyrus Codd at Detroit Chicago, 111., Sept. 19. "Plainly the times are changing1," declared governor Woodrow Wilson on his arrival here in reference to his receptions on his tour, which he said wore "the greatest gather ings ho had ever talked to since he en tered public life." The goiernor spoke particularly about liis visits to Minne apolis and St. Paul, where he spoke 20. 000 words without having prepared a single word. The Democratic candidates went im mediately to the western headquarters, where he talked to a gathering of bnsi i - ness men and politicians before the time -7 . . set for his departure to Detroit. ISesideS the 1 llesides the political side of the visit to Detroit, the governor looked forward to another incident his introduction to Tyrus Raymond Cobb, the Detroit base ball wonder.

Whether any Americans were harmed is not stated It appears Improbable, however, that the Indians had any part in the capture of the town, as Emilio Campa was re ported to have left there yesterday for the town of Boludo, 60 miles west of Santa Ana. on the Southern Pacif.c railroad. There are a half dozen Amer icans at Boludo. including a son of for mer judge Fletcher M. Doan. of Douglas, who is operating a mine there. Mexican - officials report that Maj Glron left Cananea yesterday morning and has gone to the Altar, district to assist Majs. Ojeda and Caxnbroros to catch Campa. They state that the fed erals have campa bottled up south and east and will drive him to the gulf, but local residents familiar with federal tactics think the bottle will be left un corked, as was done with Orozco in Chi huahua, and- that Campa will be ba. k burning bridges, while the federals have him "bottled" out on the desert TWO REBELS ESCAPE FROM DOUGLAS JAIL Douglas.
