BENTON, -EL, Nov. 23. Zelgler was
fired upon last night from sundown to
daylight. It la Intimated that no less
than 500 shots -were fired at the town.
The town was completely surrounded, and
the firing came from every quarter. Re
Eponse to this fusillade was made hy four

Union Leader Says No Troops Needed.
BUQUERN, I1L, Nov. 29. John Conroy,
president of the local branch of the
United Mineworkers, said today:
"There Is no need of soldiers at Zelgler.
There has been no violence, nor Is any
anticipated. Our men are comfortably
quartered at their camp, and have made
no demonstration whatever. It Is pre
sumed that Letter intends Importing ex
pert miners from Pennsylvania, and that
he has Induced Sheriff Stein to ask for
assistance simply to have the soldiers act
as guards, the same as Deputy Sheriffs
have been doing since the strike began,
June 10.
"I believe that Governor Tates has been
misinformed as to the situation. The
miners are convinced that. Lelter is un
dertaking a hopeless task; others have
tried what he Is now trying and gave it
up. lie will find his efforts more expen

All persons, including newspaper men,

Parry So Reports In Annual Address
to Industrial Association.
NEW YORK. Nov. 29. Members of the
Citizens' Industrial Association, repre
senting all sections of the country, were
present when the second annual conven
tion of the association opened here today.
It is the wish of the convention tp bring
about a complete organization of manu
facturers, business men and all employ
ers, and to advocate the open-shop idea.
All employers not affiliated with the as
sociation were invited to attend the con
vention. President David M. Parry, in his an
nual address, reviewed the growth of the
"open shop" movement, and said that
within a year 1000 factories have opened
their doors to workmen who do not be
long to unions. In some of these fac
tories, he said, the output per man has
been increased from 25 to 50 per cent. Mr.
Parry said:
"If trades unionists had become domi
nant in this country," he said. "I have
not the least doubt that our industries
would languish and our streets would be
filled with idle men. No other results
could possibly result from a system that
'would base a reward of labor, not on
merit, but on the power of organization
to dlctato terms, a system that "would re
strict our output, discourage enterprise
and permit the Indolent and least effi
cient to set the pace for Industry."
Mr. Parry declared that the courts have
with practical unanimity held that the
closed shop cannot be maintained by
means of contracts between employers
and unions, for the reason that such con
tracts are illegal and void, in that they
tend to produce a monopoly and are un
constitutional and against public policy.
"The question," he said, "then arises,
whether the closed shop can be main
tained in the absence of contracts by the
method of the unions refusing to work
with nonunlonmen.
"I believe that when any organization
takes concerted action to quit work
merely to prevent men not in their or
ganization from earning their right to la
bor, an Injury is inflicted upon the men
forced out of employment which should
entitle them to some redress. The unions
must also remember that while they have
the right to quit work, the employer has
the right to employ whom he pleases."
Mr. Parry, speaking of the Socialist
vote, said:
"It may be considered unfortunate by
some that the result of compelling the
unions to Abide by the laws is to drive
a ' portion of their membership into the
Socialist party, but certainly it is no ar
gument to say that the unions should be
permitted to follow their own sweet will
in order that their members may not be
come Socialists. The growth of the So
clolist pary simply adds additional force
to the necessity that confronts the em
ployers to take an active part In shaping
public sentiment to the end that our
great individualistic form of government
may be maintained."
In closing Mr. Parry laid special stress
on the educational feature of the work of
the Citizens' Industrial Association. He
said the association has made marvelous
progress in the first year of its organiza
tion, and that it was certain to become
one of the most powerful and influential
forces for good to be found In the world.
The work, he .said, that it has undertaken
must and shall go forward.
Citizens of Murray, Utah, Want More
- Desirable Class of Workmen.
SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 29. At a mass
meeting of citizens of Murray, called to
consider means for getting rid of the for
eign laborers employed at the smelters,
who are held responsible for the recent
series of crimes. Including two murders.
It -was unanimously voted to have a com
titee -confer with the immigration bureau
of the Mormon Church in an effort to
bring In a more desirable class of laborers
to . supercede the Greeks and Austrians
now employed.
Mayor J. H. Stratton, who presided.
stated a letter had been received from
the authorities of the Mormon Church
offering assistance by encouraging other
immigrants to come to Utah. He also
stated the smelter officials bad expressed
a willingness to hire other men than
Greeks and Austrians if these others were
imported. The plan was strongly opposed
by A. "W. Charters, state organizer for
the western Federation of Miners, who
said he would call the attention of the
United States Commissioner of Labor to
the apparent violation of the contract la
bor laws. About TOO Greeks and Austrians
are employed at the smelters.

Mystery of Disappearance of Promi
nent Ranchman Is Cleared Up.
SUNDANCE, Wyo., Nov. 29. The mys
tery' it the disappearance of James Gar
rett, a prominent ranchman, on October
19, has been cleared by the confession of
Willie Erickson. a 19 -year-old boy. Erlck
son confesses that on October 19, while
Garrett was driving off a calf belonging
to the Ericksons, he was met by Otto
Erickson, who commanded him to release
the calf. Garrett, in reply, knocked Otto
from his horse and attempted to shoot
him with a rifle. The boy was too quick
and shot Garrett three times. Garrett fell
from his horse, still alive, and the Erick
sons dragged him into some bushes and
there cut his throat with a knife, despite
his appeals for mercy.
Later In the day Otto returned to the
body and, tying a rope to the feet, dragged
it some distance to a new hiding place.
Two days later Willie and Otto packed
the body on a horse and moved it four
miles, depositing It where it was found
later by searching parties.
