NEW YOHK, Jan. HO. John II.
LitWHon of Denver, president of dis
triet lfi of the United Mino Workers
of America, announced thut lie ap
peared before tho industrial relations
commission nt his own rcn,uot.
"Your body enu well afford to let
(lie testimony of John D. Hockofeller,
Jr., bring your investigation to nn
end," Mr. LnwHon told the commis
sion. "Out of bis month enme n rcn
fion for every discontent tlint ngitntcs
the laboring class in the United
Ktntes today, nnd if remedies nrc
provided for tho injustices that he
disclosed, n long step will bo taken
hwny from indnstrinl disturbances.
"For moro thnn (en years he has
been n director of tho Colorado Fuel
& Iron company, vested with what is
virtually the power of life nnd death
over 12,000 men nnd their families.
This power, let it be pointed out, came
to him by no healthful process of
struggle nnd achievement but entire
y through tho fnct thai he was the
son of his father. His huge control
of men and money was, in effect, a
girt that marked tho attainment of
"In those first days when he might
have- been expected to possess n cer
tain enthusiasm in his vast respon
sibilities Colorado was shaken by the
coal strike, of 1003-04. It is a mat
ter of undisputed record thnt n mer
cenary tnilitin, paid openly by the
mine operators, crushed the strike by
tho bold violntiou of every constitu
tional right thnt tho citizen was
thought to possess.
Hull Ten Itegimo
"Men were herded in bull pens like
cattle; homes were shattered, the
writ of habeas corpus suspended;
hundreds wcro loaded on cars and
dumped into tho desert without food
or water; others wore driven over the
snow of tho mountain ranges; n gov
ernor elected by 15,000 majority was
unseated, n man novcr voted for on
that office was made governor and
when there enmo a thing called peace
tho blacklist gave 0000 miners the
choice between starvation or exile.
"Tho Colorado Fuel & Iron com
pany organized nnd led that attack
on tho liberties of the freemen and
yet you heard from Mr. Rockefeller's
own lips that ho never inquird into
tho causes of the strike, tho conduct
of his executives or tho fate of those
who lost. Little interest did ho tako
in tho affair, so faint was the impres
sion rondo upon him, that ho could
not even answer your questions as to
your last facts.
"To tnko the place of the banished
workers," Mr. Lawson continued,
"thousands wcro imported and tho
extent of tho company's dragnet for
now material may bo judged from the
fact thnt over thirty languages and
dialects have been bjMikcn in tho
mines since 1004.
."Ten years passed and in 1013
Colorado is once more Mushed to the
verge of bankruptcy by nnother
strike. Many stnkc-brenkers of 1003
mice, followed tho example of those
whoso places they had taken, choos
ing hunger nnd cold in tents on the
mountain sido and plains in prefer
ence to a continuation of unbearable
conditions in the mines."
CONSTANTINOPLE. Jan. 30.
Through tho co-operation ot Henry
Morgcnthau, tho American ambassa
dor, Dedri IJey, tho chlof of police,
has begun a vigorous attack on white
slavery In Constantinople- and Its
suburbs, Ono hundred and thirty
persons Intorcbted In tho traffic have
been arrested and tho chief head
quarters or Illicit trado has been
raided and closed.
Tho whlto slayo traffic has hitherto
flourished In tho Turkish capital
through tho Inability of the consuls
and the local authorities to co-operate
la checking It.
( PARIS, Jan. 30. A Geneva dis
patch to the ournler Agency stales
that Baron Burlan, the Austrian for
eign .minister, has sent a telegraphic
note to Bucharest requesting the
Rumanians to refrain from fomenting
agitation among tho Rumanian pnpu-
jHtk of Transylvania.
1H2ULIN, Jan. 30. by wireless.
German troops enptured 745 French
soldiers nnd 13 machine guns In tho,
western pnrt of tho Argonno yester
day, according to an official nn-.
nouncement made by tho Gorman
war office todoy.
A German attack delivered yester
day resulted in a considerable ad
vance. Twclvo officers and 733
soldiers were taken prisoners. Wo
captured also 12 machlno guns and
ten smaller guns. Tho losses of tho
enomy wore heavy, from 400 to GOO
lialnp been left on tho field ot bat
tle. Tho French Infantry reglmont
No. 1CS seems to havo been anni
hilated. Tho German losses wero
"French night attacks to the
southeast ot Verdun wero repulsed
with heavy losses to tho enemy. To
tho northeast of Dndonvlllor the
French forces wero driven from the
vltlago of Angomont as far back as
tho village of Dromenll and Ango
mont was occupied by our troops.
"In east Prussia a Russian attack
against tho German force protecting
a bridgo head to the cast of Darken
men was withoutrcsutt. Some ot our
fortifications to the o.nt of the Inko
district were shelled by the enemy.
A Russian attack to tho southeast ot
Lake Loowenstcln broke down under
tho German tire nnd a Russian night
attack near Dorjlmow, east of Lowlcx.
was repulsed with very heavy bosses
to tho enemy."
MILL ROAD LEVY
SALEM, Or., Jan. 30. I'rotent
against tho projwsed 1-mill general
tax levy for road construction was
voiced before the houc committee on
roads and highways bv C. K. Spcnce,
master of tho state grange, who de
clared the experience of tho Inst year
with tho stato highway commission
had demonstrated that each county
should bo allowed to develop i's own
thoroughfares without regard to the
main arteries of travel.
E. E. Coovcrt of Portland, repre
senting S. Henson nnd John H. Yeon,
who arc behind the new bill introduc
ed Wednesday by Snm Ilrown of
Marion county for n general now
scheme of road development, explain
ed that the l-millfevy would prove no
heavy burden when distributed over
the state nt large, rather than upon
the individual counties.
Mr. Spenco cited tho rond scnndul
of Columbia county to show the in
efficiency of the hiuhwny commis
sion, which dcvclocd n vigorous de
fense by Highway Engineer IJowlby
nnd Ij. Oriswold, nssistnnt engineer.
Mr. Griswold proposed to take Mr.
Spcnce over tho Columbia highway
and show him just how the state
money nnd the county's bond money
had been expended under the commis
sion's jurisdiction. He declared this
highway was built for ." cents n ynrd
less than the road in Multnomah
A question of veracity arose when
Mr. Spcnce dcclnrcd tho state hnd not
carried out its promixc to put thq
road in tho best condition. Mr. Oris
wold retorted that it was not tho fault
of the commission if tho money raised
by tho county had not all been ac
counted for, and Mr. Spcnce admitted
that many people of the county wero
wondering whnt had become of it.
BORDEAUX, via Paris, Jan. 30,
In reply to a letter from Cardinal
Paul Plorro Andrlen, archbUhop of
Bordeaux, Popo Benedict has written
"When we seo each day the moH
flourishing provinces covered with
blood and bereavement, we can not
help being tilled with anguish and
looking forward to the futuro wl(h
the deepest anxiety.
"Consequently nothing seems to
us more desirable than the cessation
of tho long, cruel war. To the rapid
attainment of that end wo have di

MEDFORD MATE TRIBUNE,
AT BOTH ENDS OF
LONDON, Jan. 30. Two condi
tions call particularly for comment
today by Hrltlsh observers ot tho waV:
Tho Austro-Gormnn concentration In
tho Carpathians, which Is regarded
np a menace to tho Russian armies In
Bukowlun, nnd tho Russian activities
In East Prussia, which havoheen boon
charactertcd as n threat to tho Ger
man forces In this territory. Thus
at the oxtremo end of tho Immense
eastern front mllltnry operations ot
tho greatest Importance are develop
As fqr tho western battle front,
another big battlo In tho vicinity of
Salssons Is confidently expected ns Is
a bitter conflict near La Hnsseo where
for some tlmo the Germans have been
piling up reinforcements.
Invading East lVnssU
Russia's now Invasion of East Prus
sia Is becoming woll defined In Brit
ish eyes as nn outflanking movement.
For sonic .time this district has been
tn'RussIan hands without attracting
much attention, but now the Invaders
havo begun n sorles of slight western
advances along tho 50 mllo front
from Tilsit southward almost as far
as Angorbtirg. This front Is only
nbout CO miles to the cast of the
Prussian fortress of Koenlgsberg.
Fighting in the Snow
Many miles to tho south, the com
bined Austro-Gcrman armies and the
forces ot Russia are battling In tho
snow In tho Carpathian mountain
passes, but as Is usual with moun
tain fighting the situation Is con
fused, each side maintaining that tho
lido of battlo is running in Its favor.
It will bo hard to form a clear ptcturo
of the situation until cither the Rus
sians cmcrgo In force on tho Hun
garian plains or tho Austro-Germans
hammer them back to the mountain
passes, perhaps causing nt tho samo
tlmo a Russian retreat In Bukowlna.
Ono effect of this strugglo has
been to bring tho Austro-Gcrman
troops so near tho Rumanian front
ier bo as to fan tho war flume in
that country, n fact which may havo
an Important bearing on deciding
when Rumania will enter tho con
