Wait for the Trial.
This Zs a government of laws
not of men. The issue out in IdaLo
is not whether the none owners or
the mine workers have been in the
right in the past, or whether trade
unioni1m shall be maintained. It is
simply whether three men accused of
murder are "guilty" or "not guilty."
Presideni Roosevelt made a serious
blunder when he interfered on the
very edge of this trial, but he may be
trusted to see that fair play is given
to these men in the courts. Mass
meetings of lab: r at this time are
equally a mistake and will do no good
to the men accused.
Every word of the testimony in the
trial will be prioted and the jury will
be the wor1(ld. If the accused e(n
Ire not guilty they will go free and
t guilty they must pay the penalty.
