REGISTER THE PICK HANDLES.
I read in the Post the other day
that the city and county authorities
are becoming alarmed at the great
number of guns in Butte-not at
those guns owned by "citizens"
(petty lawyers, shopkeepers, detec
tives, newswriters, floor walkers,
gamblers and A. F. of L. officials),
but at the arms held by common
workingmen. It seems that the po
lice even contemplated a search for
unregistered guns. Doesn't that
strike you as a waste of good time?
I imagine that at this date that niany,
even of the registered guns, could
not be located. Why send our poor
overworked servants in the police
department out on a vain quest for
And then again, if the object of
registering guns is to keep some
check upon the dangerous procvili
ties of the obstreperous, why neglect
the little item of pick handles? Yes,
and baseball bats, too. Gaspipe, as
well--oh, so many, many weapons
suggest themselves to a man who is
really in earnest and has made up
his mind to fight and kill.
I have read somewhere or other
that in the various Paris uprisings of
the past most of the street fighting
was done, on the part of the prole
tariat, with clubs. Though the men
were generally provided with guns,
when it came to an actual scrimmage
the guns were often dropped in favor
of 12 inches of iron pipe or a knife.
I think, however, that the knives
frequently more than seven. inches
long and ground to a razor's keen
ness-were generally used merely to
finish off with. To complete the job'
with a piece of iron pipe left a poor
cop in such a battered state that his
relatives seldom could establish his
identity. No wonder that police the
world over are afraid of clubs! Work
ingmen generally are not only well
muscled in the arms, but also more
or less skilled in striking accurately
with the hammer and axe.
I wonder how many lawyers could
drive a bit of steel unwaveringly
through the quartz with a single
jack and carry on an animated dis
cussion on socialism with a buddy at
the same time?
Let us not lull ourselves into a
false security with the careless as
sumption that gunless workingmen
are helpless against a few modern
machine guns. Time and time again
in the late war conscripted Ameri
cans charged machine guns frontally
-not from the rear or on the flank,
but frontally-charged them, killed
their tenders with clubbed rifles,
captured the guns and turned them
upon the foe.
I tell you, sir, these pick handles
should be gathered up at once. Left
lying about among ignorant, ruthless,
workingmen, they constitute a grave
menace to the stability of the estab
Could not the Bulletin have Mr.
W. F. Dunn bring this matter up be
fore the legislature and secure some
action? BRIAN SEAWELL.
WIDO)WS AND ORPHANS.
With the present curtailment of
copper in the Butte mines and the
preference of married men and sol
dier boys for the jobs, I would like
to know what is to be done for the
hundreds of widows and thousands
of orphan children depending on the
single men of Butte for a living.
Women who keep a few boarders
or roomers sure cannot expect to
make a living for a family on the
few soldier boys who returned, most
of whom have mothers and fathers
to make their homes with, a very
small percentage stay jn the board
When single men are laid off they
leave town to find work elsewhere.
The boarding and lodin nling houses are
deserted and how are people to meet
the big rent and other expenses at
tached to such places.
Who are the victimns of starvation,
the single men or widows and
orphans? A WIDOW.
