L. A. WELSH, Local Forecaster Miners in Southern Colorado Strike for Recognition of Union TRINIDAD, Colo., Sept. 23. Hundreds of miners In Los Animas and Huerfano counties refused to enter the mines when the night ehlft quit work at 8 o'clock this morning, the hour set for the strike, called by the United Mine Workers of America. Several hours must elapse be fore accurate figures on the number of men affected . can be secured. Miners' families continued to come Into Trlnldai this morning. Tb chief Issue Is rccogntto tho union. Labor leaders unhesttal declared a great majority cf the working the coal mines would obtain the demands made a week ago, while oper ators aro as unanimous. In their state ment that not enough workers will leavs their employment to seriously cripple the miner operations'. At the beginning ,of the strike tho operators' take' r. positive stand that there will be no compromise with the miners on the demand at union recognition. The other demands of the miners for their own check welghmcn, privileges to live whero they please, trade where they please ahd employ such physicians a they please-are not receiving much dis cussion either fr6m operators or "from miners. Opposed to the' operators are tho union leaders who declare tho strike will be continued until recognized. No violence of any. sort'' has occurred, except In Colorado Springs, where a negro miner wae said to have been attacked by miners. last night. Conditions in min ing camps give little evidence of any ex citement which may be attendant upon the strlko which state oficials Jn Denver fear may assume proportions as large and as serious as any which ever oc curred in Colorado.

ASSEMBLY WITHOUT AUTHORITY Former Senator Braclcett Replies on Behalf of MnnaRers -Ono ot tho Leading Lawyers for Defense 111 and Leaves. ALBANY, N. Y., Sept 22. D. Ca'dy Herrlck. counsel for Governor Sulzer, announced at tho outset ot today's ses sion ot the high court ot impeachment that tho governor would cease henceforth rem sin jo uoiuiuuai em ivjun eoojo SAunsaxa m jo suopoun) om osiaaexa o) Nearly all the members of. the court were In their seats when It convened. "The court having overruled tho motion of the respondent," said Judge Cullen, "to dismiss the articles of Impeachment on the ground that the assembly had no right to prefer the charges at any extradrdlnary session, It now becomes In cumbent on the respondent to make answer to the charges." Judge Herrlck, chief counsel for Gov ernor Sulzer, then announced that In view ot tho fact that the court had refused to dismiss the proceedings, tho governor would renounce his claim to the right to exercise the functions ot governor pending the termination of the trial. "When these articles of Impeachment were first presented," Judge Herrlck said, "the governor was advised that there was doubt about the legality ot the proceedings and for that reason he declined to steD down from his office, Ever since the recent decision of Supreme Court Justice Haabrouck, ruling that he had not the right to pardon a pris oner, he has ceatied to exercise any of the functions of. this office. Governor Sulspr will perform no functions of gov' ernor lh the future ponding the termlna tlon of his trial," Another Paint Raised. One of the leading Sulzer lawyers, Judge .Irving G.' Vann, of Syracuse, was forced to' return home today on account of 111 ness.

Conafrnctton of Lnvf ChnllenKed, Judge Herrlck had the floor throughout the morning session. After a long ad dress In support of -his motion for the dismissal of three articles ot tho im peachment dealing with Suiter's state ment of canlpalgn expenses and alleged speculations In Wall street, ho summed up- his argument as follows: the falluro of the governor to file a complete and accurate statement ot campaign contributions did not consti tute any offense recognizable by our laws.- "Tho election law does not require a statement of contributions made to a candidate. "The failure of a candidate to tile the statement required by this act is not an offense,' but subjects htm to a peremptory demand by a court to perforin this duty, William Sulzer never received such a demand. "The. statute recognizes , a candidate's right to the given notice ot errors In his statement and his right to an opportunity to correct them. The state cannot call rhlm to account until It first has accorded htm these rights. "The penal coda does not require a candidate to file a statement of contrl buttons mde to htm, and there are no other statutes on this subject. "Incorrect statements of facts Inserted in an affidavit but not material thereto, does not constitute perjury. "Perjury cannot be based on an oath which was neither required nor author zed by law. "Aa the election law does not require the btai-(iivutu be veritled, and us neither the election law nor the penal code require the candidate to Insert con tributions made to him there is no'ground for the charge of perjury, nor a charge of neglect of duty." These points were advanced in a supple mental brief which came as a surprise to members of the high court to whom copies of Judge Herrlck's original brief had been distributed. Messengers were sent scurrying to ob tain law books and the members seemed to take a greater interest In the new contentions than they had evinced, dur ing any of the other legal preliminaries. Informal whispered consultations were held. CONVICTS.AT ANAMOSA ORGANIZE FOOT BALL TEAM IOWA CITT. la., Bcpt 23.-(gpeclal Tel egram.)
