Huerfano World - October 28, 1976 - A tribute to Judge Joseph Barron - Editor's Note: The following is a letter to Judge Joseph A. Barron's son, Joseph B. Barron. The letter was written by a cousin, Pauline C. Sanchez of California, after the Judge's death on Oct. 12. Barron thought it a fitting tribute to his late father and wanted to share it with World readers. Dear Joe, You may or may not remember me, but I seem to recall a boy called "Deedee" with a dog, Pidgie, and a little girl named Carol always tagging behind him. But the warmest and best of my Walsenburg recollections has to do with two wonderful men, your father and mine. In many ways they were somewhat alike. They were gentle and kind the pure of heart. I respected and admired them. I loved them both. In the over seven years that I worked for and with your father, I got to know him well, and he was like a second father to me. In my times of stress and need I could always count on him -- as could so many other people. He was consolation, compassion, encouragement and quiet strength, and did so many good things! His faults, if any, were never of the spirit. You cannot possibly ever know how much this generous man did for so many for so little in return, except perhaps the satisfaction one derives from helping those in need. What he gave in great abundance was the gift of himself to those less fortunate the gift that comes from the soul. The illiterates, the vulnerable and defenseless, the kids in trouble, the poorest of the poor (and there were so many of them) came to him in droves looking for Senor Barron, "el Juez" ("The Judge") or just "Pepe," He was not a politician1s politician. The toothy fake smile and glad-hand were completely foreign to him but he got elected time after time because they knew who and what he was honesty and trust a rarity indeed especially in politics. They will feel his loss very much. The last time he came to California, Alo and I took him to a small beach down by Carmel and we had a picnic on the sane. He was in very good spirits and enjoyed himself immensely, with all three of walking along the beach reminiscing about a great many things. So it is with the greatest sadness and heavy heart that I say "hasta la vista" to this unselfish and honorable man. I shall miss not seeing him again. Sincerely and with great sympathy to you and your family from both Alo and myself, /s/ Pauline C. Sanchez

Bartolotti, Frank
Frank Bartolotti - Akron Weekly Pioneer Press - May 8, 1914 - Ludlow Fire Horror - Blamed on Militia and Mine Guards by Coroner's Jury - Men Under Command of Linderfelt and Hamrock Fired Strikers' Tent Colony, is Finding - Trinidad, Colo. - The jury conducting the coroner's inquest into the cause of the Ludlow disaster returned a verdict Saturday implicating the militia, mine guards, Maj. Patrick Hamrock and Lieut. K. E. Linderfelt. The jury was out one hour and returned two separate counts, the first of which is as follows: "Alfred Martin, member of the militia; Presno Larce, Louis Tikas, Frank Snyder, Frank Rubins, James Tyler, Frank Bartalato and Charles Costa came to their deaths by bullet wounds in the battle between the militiamen under Major Hamrock and Lieutenant Linderfelt and mine guards, on one side, and strikers on the other; said battle held in or about Ludlow on the twentieth day of April, 1914." The second count reads: "Cardelima Costa, Petra Valdez, Rogaro Pedregone, Clovine Pedregone, Lucy Costa, Oragio Costa, Elvira Valdez, Mary Valdez, Eulaila Valdez, Rodolso Valdez, Frank Petrucci, Lucy Petrucci and Joseph Petrucci came to their deaths by asphyxiation or fire, or both, caused by the burning of the tents of the Ludlow tent colony, and that fire on the tents was started by militiamen under Major Hamrock and Lieutenant Linderfelt or mine guards, or both, on the twentieth day of April, 1914. Signed Casimiro Cruz, Foreman. George Stracy, M. W. Babcock, A. W. Nash, F. J. Doveton, J. W. Bartlett." When asked if he would file complaints against Hamrock and Linderfelt on the findings of the coroner's inquest, J. J. Hendrick, district attorney, said he would do nothing until he learned what the people most closely interested in the outcome of the inquest were going to do. Routt County Sentinel - May 8, 1914 - Commission at Ludlow Camp - Cause of All Trouble Due to the Importation of Lawless and Ignorant Foreigners - Denver, May 2 - Absolute responsibility for the fatal battle of Ludlow Monday, April 20, was placed upon the Greeks of the strikers' colony at Ludlow by the military board consisting of Judge Advocate Major E. J. Boughton, Captains W. C. Danks and Phillip S. Van Cise of the Colorado National Guard. This commission was appointed April 25 by Adjutant General Chase with instructions to report on all the incidents of the battle, preceding and subsequent, and to make such report "without malice or favor." The officers examined under oath all officers and prisoners, "as many as possible of the soldiers, deputies, mine guards and townspeople of Ludlow and nearby coal camps." They made strenuous effort to obtain testimony of strikers but without success reporting that a personal request made upon Mr. Lawson and Mr. McLennon, strike leaders, in Denver, was answered in their presence by Mr. Hawkins, their attorney, "declining to give us any information upon the ground that our inquiry was not publicly conducted." The board found that the "remote cause of this as well as other battles, lies with the coal operators who established in an American industrial community a numerous class of ignorant, lawless and savage South European peasant. The underlying cause was the presence, near Ludlow, in daily contact of three discordant elements - strikers, soldiers and mine guards - all armed and fostering an increasing deadly hatred which sooner or later was bound to find some such expression. The immediate cause of the battle upon the soldiers by the Greek inhabitants of the tent colony who misinterpreted a movement of troops on a neighboring mine." Concerning Louis Tikas, the Greek leader who was killed in the battle, the report says: "During the evening Louis Tikas, James Filer and an unknown striker were taken prisoners. Lieutenant K. E. Linderfelt swung his Springfield rifle, breaking the stock over the head of Tikas." This incident followed a heated controversy between the lieutenant and the Greek. The report continues: "An attempt to hang Tikas went so far that a rope was produced and thrown over a telegraph pole. This lynching was prevented by Lieutenant Linderfelt, who turned Tikas over to a non-commissioned officer, whom he directed to be responsible for his life. Shortly afterward all three prisoners were killed by gunshot wounds. The only bullet found in his body was of a kind not used by the soldiers, although the two other wounds might have been made by Springfield rifle bullets of the uniformed men." Relative to the suffocation and the burning of two women and eleven children in the tent colony the report says: "Eleven children and two women were smothered to death in a small pit under one of the tents. None of them was hit by a bullet. The pit was not large enough to support the life of such a number for many hours. The construction of the pit made it a veritable deathtrap and its inmates probably died from suffocation before the tents were burned. When found there were no signs that the women and children had crowded into the entrance of the pit as would have been the case had they attempted to rush out when the tent above caught fire." The report states that the colony was looted by participants and spectators in the battle and that 15,000 rounds of ammunition were taken from the tent marked "headquarters of John Lawson." Only one person was killed or wounded in the colony by a gunshot. Frank Snyder, a 12-year-old boy, was shot in the head. His father stated that evening that his boy had gone outside the tent and was shot in the forehead while facing the arroya from which the strikers fire came." The colony was not swept by machine guns. This is proved by the fact the chicken houses, out houses, tent frames and posts still standing in the colony exhibit no bullet holes while the buildings and fences along the railroad track are riddled with bullet holes made by the machine gun." The board recommended that a general court-martial be appointed to try all officers and enlisted men participating in the treatment and killing of prisoners and the burning and looting of the tent colony, that the legislature establish a permanent state constabulary so that the "young men of our national guard may be relieved from engaging in riot duty with a people numbering among them ferocious foreigners whose savagery in fight we find exemplified in the killing of Major Lester while under Red Cross protection and the maiming and mutilation of Privates Martin, Hockersmith and Chavez." The report continues: "We strongly urge the state and federal governments to proceed at once to the apprehension and punishment of all persons engaged as instigators or participants in the treasons, murders, arsons and other acts of outlawry in this state since the battle of Ludlow. We find that in apparent anticipation of a preparation for the battle of Ludlow, rifle pits were prepared by the strikers on the south side of their colony along the country roads and close to the tents and along the west side of the colony. These rifle pits show conclusively the careful and deliberate preparation of the strikers for the battle and their location along the front and side of the colony nearest to the militia camp nearest which they could not be defended against firing into the colony. Such care had the strikers themselves for their women and children, that these pits were located where any return of the fire from them would be drawn directly into the colony itself." Note: The monument to the Ludlow Massacre lists his name as Frank Bartolotti, and gives his age as 45. The newspaper listed him as Frank Bartolato.
