This Strike and the Other One
The strike in the southern Colorado coal fields drags
toward its inevitable end. Every one sees now what they
should have seen long ago, for this strike never had any
prospect or chance of success. It should never have been
called in the first place, but once called it should have
been called off as soon as the first few days made it
perfectly plain that there was no chance of its success,
that reduction of wages against which the strike was
made was reasonable and necessary, and that the great
majority of the coal miners themselves were not in favor
of the strike.
The facts here mentioned account in large measure
for the differences between this strike and the other
strike in the southern Colorado coni fields that brought
unmeasured disgrace upon the good name of the state
and irreparable injury upon its business interests. To
day the state of Colorado has the instruments for enforc
ing industrial peace against those who find their profit in
strife and disorder. The industrial commisson has the
authority to investigate such controversies and to make
public its findings. The state rangers are immeasurably
better than the state guardsmen for enforcing order and
preventing crimes against life and property in the dis
The lesson that lies in the comparison of these two
strikes should jK*t be overlooked by the people of Colo
rado, for they have it easily within their power to de
termine whether the laws shall be enforced, life and
property held secure, and the authority of the state gov
ernment shalf be respected, or whether controversies be
tween large corporations on one side and international or
national labor unions on the other shall be mode an oc
casion for private war with all the attendant evils of
fcuch a war.
If the people of Colorado prefer the present method
of handling strike conditions to those that resulted iu
the so-called massacre of Ludlow, they should give their
support to the present industrial commission, and to the
low by which that commission is established; they should
insist upon the retention of the state rangers as a per
manent part of the machinery of government, and they
should elect to office as state officials only men who are
known to be favorable to the maintenance of law and
order and who are willing to use the forces of government
for the purpose for which government is established.
The Woman’s Party
The Chieftain is in receipt of a circular letter from
an organization that calls itself the National Woman’s
party, with headquarters in Washington, D. C. The let
ter outlines an extensive and ambitious program centered
upon a constitutional amendment to enforce political,
civil and legal equality for women, and invites a discus
sion of the proposition in these columns.
The Chieftain is unable to see why there should be a

Q Why was mustard gas so called?
C. TI. O.
Woman's party in the United States any more than a
Man's Party, and the Chieftain is not in favor of the
proposed amendment to the constitution.
In Colorado women have political, civil and legal
equality- with men. They have that equality be
cause they are competent for that status of
equality, and because neither tho inen nor the women of
this state see or know any reason why there should be
inequality in such matters. The degree to which Colo* j
rado women exercise their political rights, and tlie man
ner of their political activities is a matter that concerns
them alone and the men of Colorado are not concerned
with it any more than they arc concerned with their own
In some other states public opinion is. not as far ad
vanced as it is in Colorado, and in those states women
do not have political, civil and legal equality. That is
not a matter that concerns the men and women of Colo
rado. This state would rightfuly resent an attempt on
the part of the citizens of Alabama or Massachusetts to
dictate to us in any such a matter, and there is no good
reason, why the people of Colorado or their senators and
representatives in congress should tell the people of an
eastern or southern state what they shall do.
The Chieftain hopes that Colorado Congressmen will
vote against any such amendment, fox; it is certain thnt
if this state aids in breaking down home rule and state
rights this time, at a later time it will be our own rights

The year 1922 promises to be to an unusual degree
a year of adventure. For many men and also for many
women the years of the world war brought a disturbance
of all the things that had made up their ordinary life.
They saw new things far beyond the range what they had
expected to see, they had new experiences and they ac
quired knowledge of kinds that would never have come
to them if they had not been shaken out of their normal
courses by the world’s greatest storm.
Coming back to the familiar scenes and routine of
peaceful life many of these men and women found them
selves no longer satisfied with what they were once con
tented to accept. They had gained a wider view of lifo
and its affairs, and they desired to use to their own
advantage the lessons they had learned.
So it happens that this is a period of unrest, of change
and of turmoil. Not since the period following that other
great war, nearly sixty years ago, has there been such
a spirit of adventure, such a desire for the new and the
That period of tho sixties the time of the great
western development in the region immediately to the
west of the Missouri. This period promises to ho the
time of rapid advancement in the region that lies between
the region of the plains and the new great states of the
Pacific coast. California had its turn in the decade from
1910 to 1920;. and from present appearances the next ten
years trill show a great development in that region where
undeveloped natural resources are greatest iu proportion
to scanty population.
Between Pueblo and southern Colorado there lies the
region that offers most to the adventurers of today. The
development of tlfcit region means much to Pueblo, and
this city, secure in its geographical location and its vast
and varied resources cannot fail to profit hv the growth
and prosperity that ia assumed for all the states of the

Q. Where are most of the wood pulp

states bordering on the Pacific ocean.

A. The letters O. X. T. on Clark's

Q. How can hair ho taken off a

A. Milk lime Is used for da
hairing hides. This takes from ten days
to two weeks. Blake a quart of fresh
