hundred shoti wer? fired in a battle
today between a posse of deputy

side to extinguish tires in the boilers
of Copper mines affeeted by the strike,
and a crowd of siiikers. who had
fortified themselves on the opposite
side of the canyon. The deputies were
driven back. Another train loaded
with oilicers was ordered out.
Bullets greeted thirty-live deputy
sheriffs, who attempted to draw the
flreg from under boilers at the Big
Copper Mined here today. From
behind breastworks they bad thrown
up since morning, striking miners,
who quit work today because the
Utah Copper Company and several
other concerns refused them an in?
crease of wages, fired upon the offi?
cers and drove them from the mine
works. None was Injured.

armed strike pickets stood guard at
the approaches of the various pro?

of their number was wounded by

and Bulgarians, who largely out?
numbered the American miners, were
insistent Upon a walkout. The Finns

I could to present this strike, now
lhal it has com.-, I regard the de?
mands of the men ;<s f;?ir and jus?,
