Armijo, Pedro
Pedro Armijo - Akron Pioneer Press - November 14, 1913 - Four Men Shot Dead - Three Killed From Ambush In Strike Riots - Mine Guards Slain As They Flee In Auto With Miner From La Veta - Aguilar Miner Shot - La Veta, Colo., Nov 9 - The most tragic battle in the history of the strike struggle in the southern fields took place Saturday afternoon at the Gene Loughhead ranch, three miles west of the mountain town of La Veta, when an automobile containing four guards, the driver and one miner, was ambushed by a gang of men and three of them killed and two wounded. The dead - Harry Bryan, 1832 Ogden street, Denver, captain of guards; Walter Whitten, Carlton hotel, Denver, guard; Luke Terry, Colorado Springs, chauffer. The Wounded - R. G. Adams, Arriba, Colo., shot through left arm and right foot; William Gamblin, miner, shot through right lung. The place where the shooting took place is ideal for an ambush. The road winds out of La Veta and runs along and up a hill. At the right of the hill, where the road starts up, is the Loughhead reservoir held in by a dirt embankment. It was from this embankment that the strikers did their firing. The riddled automobile stood Saturday night in the same spot where the stiffening hands of the chauffeur had stopped it. Terry slipped down in his seat still holding the wheel. Fifty yards back Captain Bryan lay face downward with his gun under him. Whitten, twenty yards back of the machine lay on his back. The machine was riddled with bullets. Gamblin is at the Owen ranch. He is not in a dangerous condition. R. G. Adams was taken to the office of Dr. Lamme. General Chase Says Situation Critical - Trinidad - Adjutant General John Chase regards the situation in the strike zones of southern Colorado as most serious following a day of bloodshed and violence. The streets of Trinidad and every section of the strike district are being guarded by militiamen to prevent further outbreaks. One non-union miner shot and killed and one striker wounded at Aguilar; a mine clerk, assaulted, beaten and left for dead by strikers at the McLaughlin mine three miles south of Trinidad; two miners beaten by strikers at Starkville; a camp marshal captured by strikers, disarmed and driven from Segundo; and a skirmish between strikers and military guards at Forbes, is the record of twenty-four hours in the Las Animas county district since General Chase left Denver for his military headquarters here. Five bridges of the Denver & Rio Grande main line between Cucharas and Rouse Junction have been burned. Strikebreaker Is Slain Near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg. Terror Rules Coal District - With R. G. Adams, the fourth of the men shot in the ambuscade near La Veta Saturday afternoon, dead in the hospital at Pueblo, the feeling of horror in this district over the killing has intensified. That the reign of terror is on again is freely expressed by citizens. The strained feeling that pervaded both La Veta and Aguilar during Saturday and ended in killings was felt at Walsenburg up until a late hour Sunday night. It broke once when strikers caught Neal McDermott, fire-boss from the Maitland mine, before the Star theatre and beat him. Yampa Leader - November 14, 1913 - Strikebreaker is Slain near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg. Brandon Bell - November 14, 1913 - Strikebreaker is Slain Near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg.
