There never had been any doubt in
their minds as to what the verdict
would be. As they were led out of
the courtroom they sang "Solidarity
The next morning, Jan. 17. the 43
"silent defandants" were brought in
for sentence. The three who had
refused to join in their decision to
put up no defense were absent.
"Have any of the defendants any
thing to say before I pass sentence?"
asked Judge Frank H. Rudkin.
They had, indeed. Their pledge of n
silence, "in contempt of court," was n
to last only until they had been con- c
victed. Their tongues were now t+
loosed. Eleven of them spoke, oc- F
cupying the entire morning, during
which time the 43 stood shoulder to
shoulder before the court and deliv
ered probably as scathing an ar
raignment of capitalist justice as has
ever been voiced by workingmen.
Through every speech rang the -
spirit of unflinching defiance which (
the men had consistently shown dur- s
ing their 15 months' imprisonment e
and their long trial. Not one of them s
sounded the ingratiating note cus- c
tomary under such circumstances. t
"Perjurers" was their scornful char
acterization of the witnesses for the 1
prosecution and their denunciation t
of the methods used by the prosecu
tion was so merciless that finally
United States District Attorney Rob
ert Duncan pleaded: "May it please i
your honor, I assure you that not I

"The defendants will proceed with
what they have to say," was the
Two ('on'icted Not in I. W. W.
Mortimer Downing, one of the
spokesmen, pointed out that two of
the convicted men, W. H. Faust and
Felix Cedno, were not even members
of the organization in which they
were accused of having conspired;
that official records showed that De
fendant O'Connell was in the hos
pital at the time when one of the
government witnesses swore that he
had set fire to the building, and that
lie himself already had been "rail
roaded" to jail at the time when the
government detectives swore that he
was out on the picket line in con
nection with the Wheatland hop
pickers' strike in 1913.
The evident embarrassment of the
government officials at these charges
- was increased when Downing bit
terly arraigned the authorities for
forcing a sick man, Frederick Es
mond, now believed to be dying of
heart disease, complicated with con
sumption, to sleep on the jail floor
without bedding for over two
month.,, along with the other de
fendants, five of whom died of in.
fluenza or pneumonia.
"Every employer claims the right
to set the hours and wages and con
ditions under which his men shall
work," said Downing. "Well, I will
tell you what we mean by direct
action and action on the job. We
mean that the worker is going to tell
the boss when and where and for
how much and under what condi
tions he will work. The I. W. W.
have taught this, and will continue
to leach it, until thi, workers gradu
ally become stronger and stronger
and finally take over the industries."
Says P'rosecutno Broke Laws. in
I am glad I am a member of the w
I. W. W., whom the district attorney st
calls the scum of the earth," said pl
James Price, another defendant. "At ni
least, I have kept my word and stood
by my principles. The district at- P
torney swore to uphold the laws of it
the land, but he has violated every tl
principle of the constitution. When b'
it comes to sabotage, he has the w
W. W. \. backed clean off theS
In a short, fiery speech of defi- tl
ance, James Mulrooney told the a
judge why he had become an I. W.
W. after witnessing in Butte, Mont., ci
in the summer of 1917, the lynching s1
of a sick man, Frank Little, a mem- o
ber of the executive committee of p
the organization. He also witnessed v
the Speculator mine disaster, when i1
167 workers were killed. M
"I uphold every principle of the b
I. W. W.," was his closing challenge.
"I am not much. of a speaker,"
said Frank Elliot, "as I come from
the ranks of labor, but I want to ex
press my supreme contempt for the
whole gang." Frederick Esmond, re
ferred to above, made an impas- -
sion address in which he tore to f
shredls the testimony of the govern- I
ment detectives and stool pigeons, t
denouncing the whole trial as a dis- t
grace to the country.
One short sentence was the speech t
of Roy P. Connor. "I have nothing 1
but contempt for a court where per
jury is considered patriotic."
Godfrey Ebel told how he had
been arrested withurt a warrant and,
when he refused to give perjured
testimony against his fellow work- 1
ers, put in solitary confinement, not
even being allowed anything to read,
and, when his release was ordered
by Judge Dooling of San Francisco,
rearrested and thrown into jail
along with the others. Will .Hood,
another of the convicted men, de
clared that "Dublin Bob" Connellan
was imprisoned at the very time
when the prosecution's witness, Boll
horn, had testified to having seen
I him near a building which he was
accused of having fired. Hood's de
nunciation of Bollhorn and of the
methods used by the government to
secure a conviction was so vigorous
that the judge finally brought him
to a halt.
Laugh at Sentence.
"We didn't- come here expecting
justice," said Phil McLaughlin. "We
want all you will give us. We'll do
the same to you when our turn
The reading of the sentences was
greeted with scornful laughter by
the 43 workingmen, more than half
of whom, with a smile of contempt
on their lips, heard themselves con
demned to 10 years in prison. They
were led back to Jail singing:
"Hold the fort, for we are coming,
Union men, be strong."
Julius Weinberg, who had turned
state's evidence, was then led for
Ir ward to make his plea.
t "I know these men, your honor,"
he read from his written plea for
mercy, "and know the harm that
would come to you and me dnd the
United States if they should achieve
