III,, neD24.-Wh1ledoprenrt.ftourt decision upholaV
Governor James' H. Peabody, of
Colorado, was alone in his - room at
the Auditorium Annex dressing for ,
the dinner of the Illinois Manufac
turers' Association last night, three
men entered unannounced. -Questioned
as to their identity and pur-,
pose, the spokesman of the "party,
who gave his name as Emil Arnold,
and bis business as editor of a Chi
cago labor paper, stated that they:
bore a Bet of resolutions passed by
the board of business agents of the
Building Trades Council, professing
to represent 35,000 men,, and that,
they intended to stay until the gov
ernor had perused them. The gov
ernor read the document which ac
cused him of being a menace to the
peace and prosperity of his state,
and eaid: s . ? - ' . ,
"We mourn the fact that we are
unable to duplicate, .with regard to
ybu.'your acts of deportation', and,
bting thus situated, we order that
the charter of the organization be
draped in mourning during your
etay in the city. We deplore the
fact that that of jour caliber
could be accorded a seat .in a gath
ering of representative citizens of
the country who have come togeth
er for the purpose of nominating
one of their number for the highest
position to which any- one can as
pire the chief executive of a free
be nnisbrd reading, v v-
To this interrogation Arnold,
h m the governor persisted in ad
dressing as "Benedict," replied:
"We are bere to siy that we re
gret our inability to deport . you,
but we suggest that you leave this
city and state as quickly as poesi
ble, if you place any value on your
Audreseiog the committee, the
governor said: - , ;
"I suppose, you would like to see
me driven from this - city, but I
want to say to you that I came here
last Sunday, and made arrange
ments to stay until Friday. I will
stay until then; when .1 expect to
take the Burlington train for Den
ver. Wete it not for .the fact that
the condition of affairs in. Colorado
requires my presence, I would re
main in this city" Indefinitely. I
shall file your resolution with the
collection of . scurrilous literature
lately received by me. ,
"Your resolution represents noth
ing but lies. I have never opposed
honest labor unions in Colorado
but there have been labor men, so
called, in my state, who were and
are dynamiters, anarchists and mur
derers. : If you-indorse such meth
ods as have been employed in Colo
rado, I shall be compelled to place
you in the same class. On mv re
turn to Colorado, if . occasion re'
quires, I shall continue to deport
these disturbers of the peace.
The governor did not tell his
friends of the incident until a short
time before his departure from Chi
cago tODight.

D. Haywood, secretary of the Wes-
ern X ederation of Miners, who has
been absent from his office for the
past week, resumed bis duties in
the federation headquarters today,
having received assurance that no

rest and that none will be.
The federation officials are en
deavoring today to arrange so that
such goods in their Cripple Creek
and Victor Union stores as were not
ruined by the marauders, may be
distributed to the wives and chil
dren of the miners who have been
deported. Secretary Havwood says:
"The most , important work be
fore us now is the relief system
We must see that the wives and
children of the deported miners are
properly cared for. We will make
an effort to send some one out into
the district to take charge of affurs.
"Another important work before

ris and Cromwell Varley, who were
captured by the bandit Raisuli,
have iust arrived, f erdicaris was
greatly pleased with the reception
accorded bim by the townsmen,
who met him in great numbers
Perdicans suffered many hard
ships while in the hands of Raisuli,
although he said he did not think
that these were the fault of the
bandit chief, and that he bsd every
comfort under the circumstances.
Varley appeared to be as cheer
ful and bright as if he bad j ust re
turned from a picnic.
PerdicariB was received at his
town house by the authorities, the
admirals of Mb fleet, and numerous
personal friends. His Moorish ser
vants made a great demonstration
of joy, kissing their master's hands
and clothes. Much credit is due to
the two sheriffs of Wazan, Mulai
Ali and Mulai Hamel, who have
devoted much time in efforts to se
cure the success of the negotiations.
Mulai Ah was - in communication
with RaiBuli constantly, thus insur
ing the safetv of the captive, while
Muli Hamel traveled between Tan

Nothing unusual occurred during
the exchage of the prisoners, who
started immediately for their homes

over $75 iri gold taken from tbe
