suiituthes MacDonuld and KcatlnK or

Ilcforo tho boiJMi committee on
rules the two lawioskcrs told drama
tically of tho wrongs they said tho
employers had perpetrated on tli'j
men In both region's. From remarks
dropped by members of tho commit
tee It seemed likely that Inquiries
ftould be ordered.
Hundreds of professional guninon
who had previously been employed to
fight the West Virginia in I no strike,
Keating assured the committee, were
Imported Into Colorado. "Armored
automobiles were bought by thu
operators and . galling guns wero
mounted on them," ho said. "Tho
miners were warned not to call for
their mall on pain of death."
"In Michigan," said MacDonald
"2300 men were idle by the mine
strike. Conditions In the copper
region arc acute."
Doth congressmen asserted that the
laws against miners' discharge mere
ly on account of union affiliations
had been Ignered: that military
courts had supplanted civil tribunals
and that miners, arrested, were de
prived of their rights of counsel.
