"The Blanket Stiff"
(Written for the Butte Daily Bulle
tin by Geo. H. Sands, Burke, Ida.)
A blanket stiff "went down the line,"
The dust of toil spread o'er him.
A "job" he wanted, mill or mine,
For winter loomed before him;
Winter's cold, the ice, the snow,
The biting winds that coldly blow.
No home had he. this "labor man,"
Tho luxuries surround him;
He wondered at the social plan
So spider-like that bound him.
He looked about with tired eye
And sadly sought to reason why.
He thought about that "bumper
His toiling hands had helped to save.
And yet he had no place to "flop,"
A "freeman" yet a social slave.
The sweatshop garments that he
An insult to the name he bore.
A simple child of nature he
Yet held within a certain pride;
Those platitudes of "liberty"
He carried with a manly stride,
But yet he felt a vague unrest,
A thought his actions half expressed.
His weary feet now top a hill;
A city's glowing lights he saw.
Yet cold misgivings haunts him still,
He shivers 'neath his mackinaw;
Reminded thus of other days
With city folks and city ways.
Alas, poor knight; yon robber band,
Who revel like insensate swine:
Who waste the riches of *a land
Made prosperous by thee and thine,
But wait foi' thee with cunning smile
To filtch from thee thy humble pile.

Bolshevism in America--Why Not?

t11 is amazing' to nolte the apparentl ignil''erence o1 the .1)nimn
i.abi, r' .I,1or44 1 l. inB ts pll silinu to1 Ithe )4l1shev'ik' i ill 115,ssia and

ectt'rily lfront that ''dread nolnllea('e" betua se of' the great dis
tlance, gegraphlically, which separates us from HIussia, where
the bolsheviki are inl control. IB.i it is ii.iwise to adopt the
altitude oil' the ',ostrich" anlid bry our heads to avoid seeing
the approaching danger. lBesides we have already seen the in
sidio.s hand I(' lthe holsheviki stretched m11t to meddle in oul
affalirs here. when they so I'a' exceeded their jurisdictioni as
Ito Iprotes agait gis the hanging 1 'l''Tmr Mooney notwviiistalnding

createld illlterlnatitnal conllicantimns which it has taken much
of the time Iof the president and a corm tatlnlllionl of sellntene

this. vyotu n11st remelmber. uuerely becaiulse (,' their l\\warranlted

-which he was to be hrug and that hlie was couv,\icted uponi per

t11 is il(cmll heuit upon 1ni41 men, -l..\ . se lopinions are so ably
voicedl ('r1m time to lime by tHI'lther Wallace \Vat..sol, t.o be
Ioutspo.kenl i tlheir oppoIsitilon t the bolsheviki, and best of all,
to al4'or, their protests with thait (rlown )I' glory, "'a reasonl
why.'' I smne po.r, deluded, unwashed and uninforIed
brother should ask why you are opposed to the bolslheviki. do
not1 contenlt yo1'rsell' with sayilng Ihat Brolther Wallace \Vatsnl.
or Brother .. W. Hicks. or the Bakersfield Califlornian. or they
Mnornlilng E':c'ho have said that is whal we should think this sea
son. Altlhogh to be perlfectly fIra1nk with you., do not see
why Ihat should not be sufficient relly to any thinking indiv
dinal, for, 1 ipay. what u\\nwontled chain of circumnstances couhl
ever possibly lead all for ofr tho.se soulrces of' truth astray?
Tell them bluntly Ihe facts: The bolsheviki not only propose,
buit act ually have. removed the employer from the factories
and are rI'lling those fI'actories un(der the management. of
tlhemselves and for the benefit of themselves. Think (I use
the word reverenlly). I say. think of it! They are removing
fromi the sacred relationshilp of "'master' and servant" the most
valued privilege, to-wit: T'rle right to1 give the major lortion
1o the producl of the factory t1o a private owner, permittingi
himi1 to remain away front the dust and dirt .of industry and live
in style without work. thereby lending respectability to Ihe
workshop. Tell Ihem Ihe ignorant unwashed, that these bol
sheviki have taken away the ballot from that same ''master"
unless he would consentl o s4hml to stoil his hands at uselful
toil, a course of co1ndluct to, which he is entirely unaccustomed.
They have even gone so tar in tlheir unreasoning, of anarchy
'as to discriminate against what they are pleased to term the
lparasites,"' by refusing to permit the "'profiteers" to hav\e as
much food or comlforts of life as the common. ordinary work
ers are permitted to cous(ure: In fIact. they seem to think that
just because about 170.000.000 ort of the 180,00"0,000 Ueople
in Russia are "'workmen and peasanits'" he laws should be so
framed that every one that is able should be compelled to
"'work or starve." They seem bound and determined to dis
,riminate against the employers who furnish us with jobs
sometimes--and seem to thlink ju.st because the employing and
non-prodnltive class gel olur-fifths o,' the product of labor,
and prolpose to continue tI do s5o at all hazard, that they are un
reasonable and should be made to go to work. Think (again
I use the word reverently). think of an employe without an
employer! It is true Ihat yoI have' not always had an em
ployer, but you, will admit tIhalt whenever you have been with
lout one em ployer you have been busy looking for another.
Just because seventeen -eighteentllls of the ipeo!ple of Russia
are working ment like yourselves. is that any reason wvhy the
other one-eighlteentllh should e reduced to the level of being a
clerk or employe of the governmelt? But that is what, you
e are coming to if the bolsheviki have their way. 'Then, instead
( of every free-born American having an equal etcance with
every other free-born American to become president of the
United States. a man ~wou~id ut I1 have more tIhan one chance in
a million to (''py that highl office.
y Do not let the fact that I have fureed my w'ay out of the
r working class to a position oi your backs caunse you to forget
that at that eminence I will stand and wave "Old Glory" or
- anything else that will keel, you .from dislodging me from that.
Sadvantagetis siltuation. Reme mber, brothers, that you~ are
II dependants upon the employing class-; that in order to be an
n employe youi must maintain the enmp.loyer,.and that if you ever
reach the stage in this counlltry when you. deside to go to work
sfor yourselves and eliminate the respe(ctable idlers from your
2 hliaist, 3you wvil.;be a' bmtclI.of bolshevists!
