Agitation Is Declared Too
High Price to Pay.
COLORADO MOVE BLOCKED
Plan Kejeetcd by State Executive
aid to Have Had Indorsement
of John 1). Rockefeller, Jr.,
and Other I-cadcrs.
DKNVEH, Oct. S. More than 1000
persons made defendants in cases
crowing out of the recent coal strike
in Colorado must go to trial. Hope
held out strong-iy during the past
week that Governor Carlson would
order a sweeping dismissal of the
cases pending flickered out at mid
night last night, when the executive
refused to interfere.
This decision was the culmination
of a series of conferences between
Governor Carlson, labor leaders, state
ort'icials, advisers and citizens. Among
t hose who were understood to have
favored dismissal was John D. Rocke
feller, Jr., now in Colorado on a tour
State Sovereignty Lost.
Reviewing the legal history of cases
growing- out of the recent strike and
their present status, the Governor de
"I do not feel that I can now order
the annulment of these prosecutions."
"Considerations of so-called peace,
mercy and business," says the state
ment, "have been urged as a Justif ica
llon for the action which it was hoped
I would take. To find answer to these
arguments I do not desire to review
the history of the strike. It
will be sufficient to remind our :
citizens that state sovereignty was !
lost and that Federal troops were ;
fcent to protect the state from organ
ized lawlessness. !
Price Too High For Mental Trace. j
The only question for me to de-
cide," said the Governor, "was whether i
or not those who were legally
charged with crime should be turned
loose without trial for the extra legal
reasons urged. It has been asserted
that such a course would put an end
to the agitation that is going on in
certain quarters and leave this state
in a more peaceful condition. Granting
such a result would follow it is in
effect to say that a group of persons
can commit a crime and receive im
munity if they raise sufficient agita
tion to disturb our peace of mind.
"I do not believe that our citizens
are willing to purchase mental peace
at such a price.
Criminality Not Mitigated.
"The wholesale character of these
crimes does not deprive them of their
criminality. It has been urged that
so long as these cases are pending
business will be stagnant and that
foreign capital will not come into the
.Mn my opinion, capital will never
invest in this state until it is dem
onstrated that attacks on 1 If e and
property will not be tolerated."
The decision of Governor Carlson,
which was a surprise to even those in
circlesclose to the Administration, came
only a few hours after the announce
ment of the action of the Supreme
Court, ordering the release on bail of
John R. Lawson, labor leader, and one
of the foremost figures in the conduct
of the recent strike, who has been con
fined in a Trinidad jail since his con
viction several months ago of first
degree murder in connection with
Thouiiand Defendants Involved.
Approximately 75 criminal and civil
suits were filed and more than 1000
persons were made defendants, as a
result of the recent Colorado coal
strike. Strikers, sympathizers, local,
district and international officials of
the United Mine Workers of America
were indicted. Actions were brought
In Federal, state and district courts.
Of the civil suits, the case of the
Colorado Fuel & Iron Company against
the United Mine Workers of America,
rhargins conspiracy in restraint of
trade, and asking damages in the sum
of $1,000,000, was the most prominent.
Of the criminal cases that of John
R. Lawson was the most noteworthy.
