Commerce Club. Five hun
dred thousand dollars is es

and rehabilitation work in

in the hands of the local Red
Cross chapter, for transmit
tal to James L. Fieser, Dir
ector in charge of American
Red Cross Disaster Relief
Operations in Pueblo.
The official appeal reads as
"Five hundred thousand
dollars is urgently needed as
a bare minimum sum to go
most necessary relief and
rehabilitation work in the
city of Pueblo, according to
conservative and careful es
timate. On behalf of the
stricken citizens of Pueblo,
the undersigned earnestly
appeal to the generosity and
sympathy of the nation to
assist in meeting the situa

of these have lost -ii they

present an approximate to
tal of 7,000 persons and the
census is not yet complete.
Hundreds of dealers, large
and small, have been paraly
zed by the flood which com
pletely wiped out their stocks
and ruined the buildings in
which they were housed.
The damage is estimated be
tween $15,000,000 and $25,
000,000, exclusive of loss to
municipal highways and rail
road property. The flood
victims must be helped to
regain normal economic ex

return to its position as a
self supporting community.
"Upon invitation of. the
Governor of Colorado and
the city of Pueblo.the Amer

relief work. Destitute fam

care of in refugee camps and
thousands are being fed
daily at field kitchens main

these unfortunate
persons have been started.
' So that they may again be

Great excitement prevail
ed in Patagonia on Wednes
day of this week when re
ports were received here to
the effect that drillers at
work on a ranch on the east
side of the Wetstone moun
tains had encountered an oil
strata at a depth of 320 feet.
Geologists returning from
the scene of the new find de
clared the oil shale encount
ered was indentical to that
of the Texas and Tampico
oil fields.
Excitement continues at
blood-heat throughout the
Whetstone area adjacent to
the new find, while several
tentative companies have
been organized in Patago

played, "score standing 2-2,
but in the fifth Ted allowed
the redskins to fatten their
batting averages to the tune
of ten hits, all clean. The
net result of this debacle
was nine runs. Franklin
went into the box in the
sixth, and the first fiive men
up got hits, resulting in
three runs. Then the boys
came down to earth and held
the opponents. Individual
criticism, if any, must be
directed at Montano for
playing too deep in the field
and Patterson for trying for
grounders which properly
belonged to the second biz
man, thus leaving his base
without a player. Reuter
was the hero at bat.

of Political Convention.
Denver, June 25. President
Samuel Gompera, America's vet
eran labor leader-overwhelming
ty ueieatea ms nrst serious op
position since 1894-today wat
returned to office with his entire
aaministracion lor another year
by the American Federation of
The sweeping victory, the lab
or chief said to night at the close
of the federation's forty-first an
nual convention, demonstrated
that the American trade union
movement will not submit to
dictation from the forces of cor
ruption or greed- neither the
Hearsts nor the Garys can chart
our course or select our leaders
Movement Is United
'Our movement is united. It
is prepared to be aggressive in
defense of the rights of the toil
ers. It will not be swerved from
its course. It will be a sad dar
for the aspirations of the work
ing people of our land when cor
rupt and intriguing interests can
either divide our movement,
change our course or destroy its
leadership. The vote today has
demonstrated to the world that
we have not yet come upon that
'The whole work of the con
vention, the resolutions and de
clarations indicated, mean for
the future a united progressive,
militant movement, following
upon a progressive, fruitful and
militant -past.
' ' ' Gctmpers Is" Satisfied
"For myself, I may say that
the work of the convention and
the result of the election fill me
with satisfaction, gratitude and
pride, not for myself but for our
movement... I am proud of our
movement and my life shall be
given to it in the future as it has
been for these many years. We
are in serious times, but we face
them undaunted and with confi
dence and courage."
The labor chief's forces made
a clean sweep from the beginn
ing, when president Gompers
was returned to the presidency
for the fortieth time by over
whelming John L. Lewis, presi
dent of the United Mine Workers
by a vote of 25.022 to 12,324.
Galleries Are Packed
The yote was taken amid
scenes of wild enthusiasm, rival
ing those of national political
conventions. The galleries were
packed with spectators. The
convention floor was overflowing
with delegates and their friends.
Cheers and applause swept the
auditorium at every vote.
Seyeral attempts by the Gom
pers supporters to stampede the
delegates for the veteran labor
leader tailed, as scores of dele
gates remained silently in their
seats, unmoved by the urgings
of fellow delegates.
This was the first time that '
Gompers has been seriously op
posed since 1894, when he was
defeated by John McBride, a
mine worker, at a convention in
this city, but he was returned
to office the following vear.
On the Verge of Tears
When his victory was announc
ed the labor leader, who is now
71 years old, could scarcely con
trol his emotions and was on the
verge of tears when he took his
place at the rostrum to thank
the delegates for their support
and cjnfidence, and declaring
that "my election will bring no
comfort to Gary or Hearst."
Lewis, of the mine workers, a
rose from hi3 place at the rear
of the hall and declared in a
stirring address that he "accept
ed the verdict of the American
Federation of Labor without the
slightest tinge of enmity in my
mind," adding:

Portuguese. Well, anyway,
they look different from an

the Portu-geese have fewer
feathers than the Portu

just as well this hot weather.

other day I saw a sign which
read all parts of the "Indian

another for him and it turn
