It.has  been a long, haul .sirusjgle and, while  the ordinaiy citizen condemns* a strike  as involving mon- or less trouble all  around, sympathy has, been very  strongly with the men of Leadville who  only a-ked for $3 per day upon which  to exist, and support their families  where the cost of living is greater  than in almost,-my other west ern cjiinp.
