Marino, Michael
Michael Marino – Durango Wage Earner – May 10, 1906 – Pueblo, May 8. – This city was the scene today of a rather desperate riot in which one man was killed and several injured.  It was the result of labor troubles at the Pueblo smelter, and resulted, at 6 o'clock this morning, in the liveliest sort of rioting.  It seems that upon being refused higher pay and shorter hours the smelter men struck and left their work.  The smelter authorities desired the strikers to leave the vicinity, but as they did not go peacefully the police were called and ordered to disperse the men.  Then trouble immediately followed.  The strikers, assisted by their wives, attacked the officers, in which they tugged freely, and a general fight ensued.  One striker was instantly shot to death by a score of deputies and a number of others were badly injured by being clubbed.  Several deputies were struck with stones and clubs from the hands of the women and were seriously hurt, notably, T. J. Burrows and W. H. Loar.  When Sheriff McMillan realized that the assault threatened the lives of his men he ordered them to shoot to kill.  A volley was fired and the rioters immediately dispersed, leaving on the field of battle Michael Marino, a man of 26, who was found to be dead from a bullet that had entered the breast.  More trouble is expected.

Marlin, Antonio
Antonio Marlin – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – July 16, 1874 – Indians on the War Path on our Southern Border – Many Persons Killed, and Much Stock Stolen – Troops and Citizens in Pursuit – [Special to the Chieftain] – Trinidad, July 8. – On Sunday last rumors reached this city that a party of Comanche, Cheyenne and Kiowa Indians were on the war path, and were depredating and murdering white men near Cimarron, on the Dry Cimarron and on different tributaries of the Cimarron.  These rumors have been proven well founded, and it is a painful certainty that this section of country has been raided by from three to five hundred savages, mounted and well armed.  The following condensed from an extra Chronicle of Wednesday evening, is the latest in regard to the outbreak which has been received here.  The first depredations of the Indians were perpetrated, so far as heard from, on Crow creek, a tributary of the Cimarron.  The first man killed of which we have information was Charles A. Buthe, a white man, who lived about twelve miles north of Cimarron.  We hear also of numerous depredations and the murdering of four Mexicans in this vicinity, that is in the vicinity of Cimarron.  A letter from Emery's on the Dry Cimarron, dated July 6th, states that the savages were stealing stock and murdering herdsman on the Sierra Frande and Corampa creek, and that a Mexican train was attacked on the Cimarron and that a party of Indians were seen with the scalps of white men at their belts.  The settlers were arming and preparing for battle.  Mr. Dodds reports Romero's wool train captured on the Dry Cimarron.  Conn and Roberts, herdsmen on the Corampa, are reported missing.  Two white men and one Mexican were killed at the Emery Ranche, six or seven miles above, Antonio Marlin killed at his ranch, one Mexican killed at Fisher's and one white man at Cavaness'.  He also states that there was heavy fighting with the Indians at Dry Cimarron, on Tuesday evening.  Parties from the front say that twelve or fifteen men have been killed, and a large amount of stock ran off.  One Mexican was killed by having his arms cut off, tied to a wagon and left to bleed to death.  This afternoon a party of armed men numbering about thirty, commanded by Sheriff Thompson, left for the front.  Acting Governor Jenkins has been informed of the outbreak and is doing all in his power to protect the lives and property of citizens.  Troops are moving from Garland, Fort Lyon and Fort Union and a party of thirty armed men, under Casmero Barela, are also in pursuit of the savages.  Latest – Two scouts just in from the Dry Cimarron, report the Indians moving towards Texas and the Indian Territory and that four more men have been killed.
