WHY BOLSHEVISM THRIVES
From the Western Labor News, Winnipeg, Canada.
The Free IPress editorial of .in.t c,
tilts the issue squarely ulp to the di- is
.I1etor of public welfare in that while tI
ie says bolshevism is increasing in Sl
Canada and that there are "nests" of M
it in the west, the Free Press ss s't
that bolshevisn "has not been much il
heard of in France, Britain and the ('
North Ame(rican contlinent." Iolshe- It
visml is not here, says the Free Press, ti
because it glows "only where there is
grinding poverty and outrageotls
treatlment." "In France anld Britain t:
the people do not feel that they hale s
been so oullrlageouslly exploitiedt b)'
the weallhy andilll goverlning classes."

Three Forks Banker Runs
Against Snag When He
Tackles Member of Butte
Bozeman, Jan. 20.---John Roemph,
a Butte butcher and prominent in
the Butchers' union of that city, was
on trial here Saturday, apparently
the' victim of modern junkerism a:
practiced by the A. C. M. and itl
Montana courts. He was acquitted in
RIoemph was in the butcher bus
iness at Three Forks for some tilne
quitting business, or rather being
run out of business by the American
National bank of that city on April
The president of said bank is a
Sunday school teacher (so is John I).
Rockefeller Jr.) and the manner in
which they manhandled Itoemph
makes an interesting story.
The said president of the bank, J.
A. Iloffer, held a mortgage against
lloemph on 29 head of cattle.
Roemph says the mortgage was lfo
$1,240 originally and was later
"raised" to $1,340.
Roemph says he was permitted t0,
kill the cattle, under the terms of tle
mortgage, and pay off the debt a', It
Mr. R.oemph was in the butcher
game in Three Forks for a year andti
a half and during the life of thb

lie, recorded the killing and paid on
the mortgage all except $9011 and
gave Hoffer all accounts and pro
ceeds of the business and turned

Itoemph desired to quit business.
having been hounded by sonme of the
allege patriots of the city.
In March, 1918, McPhail, cashier
of said bank, reported lloemph tc
federal authorities, charging sedtli
tion. The matter was investigated
and Ilto(mph was quickly found not
On April 6, Roemph was taken
into said bank, where Hoffer, Cash
ier Mcl'hail and the bank's alleged
attorney, a nman named Ilills, locken
the doors on -him and tried to conipel
I him to sign a criminal mortgage, so
I the story goes. Roemph refused to
I sign the illegal mortgage. tHe stated
that if they would make a copy of
2 the old mortgage lie would sign it.
The proposed new mortgage gave
the parasites at the bank "everything
I create or accumulate during the
life of this mortgage."
Seeing that Roemph was standing
2 on his rights and that they could not
1 ut over the proposed mortgage, they
finally wrote out the mortgage as ii
originally was and Roemph signed it.
4 He was not given a copy and it
2 now develops that the mortgage in
2 eludes an automobile, which the vie
1 lim of the capitalist system says was
1 written in after he signed the paper
At the same time Hoffer asked
what brand the cattle bore. Roemph
8 said he did not know. Hoffer said:
S"We'll call it T4," adding, "You can
6 go now; we got you."
D)uring the argument at the bank
Iloffer said: "If you don't come to
our terms. we'll make trouble for
you." And they proceeded to do so.
Itoemph left for the east on a va
cation a few days later and Hoffer
swore out a warrant for his arrest
charging him with selling the auto
in which RIoemph alleges was not in
e" cluded in the mortgage when he
`- signed it.
Ile was also charged with resisting
the draft in not registering.
Itoemph was located and brought
back and was released on bond.

Ioemphl at the trial.
