Victims of Capitalism
Pass Through Daily.
In two special coaches attached to
the North Coast Limited, which
passed through Butte last night,
were more members of the Ninety
first division who sustained wounds
in France. They were met at the
train by friends and workers who
listened to their stories. Representa
tives of capitalism were also on hand
to try to tell the boys that the de
mocracy they fought for was now
here in huge chunks. The boys only

torney General Gregory said about
this case in his annual report for the
year of 1919 (page 48):
"The importance of the .case is
due particularly to the fact that it
was the first notable and prominent
case which arose under the espion
age act, and the conviction of the de
fendants was, undoubtedly, one ,f
the greatest deterrents against Ihe
spread of hostile propaganda, ant.
particularly that class of propaganda
which advanced and played upon the
theme that the war was a capitalist's
war, brought by and for the benefit
of the big financial interests."
. The following is a copy of the doc
uments filed by the attorney general
(some time after the argument) in
both the Head and Baltzer cases:

(Signedi ALEXANDER C. KING,
In response to an inquiry made
by the director of the national civil
liberties bureau as to the attorney
general's procedure in these cases
and the grounds of his action, the
following letter was received:
"Sir: In response to your com.

Efforts of O. S. Larson, local rep
