five for Great Britain and two each

Deeds to make the roused blood rush

Mothers of the brave and free?
Is true Freedom but to break
Fetters for our own dear sake,
And, with leathern hearts, forget
That we owe mankind a debt?
No! true Freedom is to share
All the chains our brothers wear,
And, with heart and hand, to be
Earnest to make others free!

For the fallen and the weak;
They are slaves who will not choose
Hatred, scoffing and abuse,
Rather than in silence shrinik

YANKS LOST THEIR
HATS IN PARIS
(By United rress.)
Paris, Jan. 24.-(By Mail.)-On
the secondanight of the celebration
in connection with President Wilson's
arrival in Paris, there was scarcely
an American soldier-officer or man
-with a hat. The girls, rollicking
on the boulevards, developed a sud
den craze for American hats and
caps as souvenirs. They swept down
upon Americans, regardless of rank,
snatched their hats and sped away,
or made them forget the hats under
a bombardment of kisses.
There's a rear admiral who is said
to have been seen chasing one boule
vard beauty two blocks to recover
his gold-leaf covered cap. Maybe the
rear admiral would deny it, but any
how it is said he kissed 25 girls to
get the cap back, it being the only
one he had.

THE BIG STICK.
Roosevelt is dead, " but the big
stick will live forever. At present
it is working overtime in Butte.
Most of you twill remember that
when the word "slacker" was first
coined it was a term of reproach ap
plied to those who were trying to
evade their military duty to their
country. It was used rather indis
criminately, and was causing a great
deal of bitterness and hard feeling
throughout the country, when Pres
ident Wilson came forward and,
with a few words, rendered a serv
ice of inestimable value to the whole
HIe stated in unequivocal terms,
that, "the man with dependants,
who stayed at home and kept the
wheels of industry and commerce
turning, was doing just as much for
his country as was the man who
handled a rifle in a front line
trench." Why? Because each, in
his own way, was doing his best
his all, for his country. The army
could not exist, as an army, foir even
one week, were it not for the unre
mitting toll of these "civilian war
riors" who so grandly and ably sup
Thus the meaning of the word
"slacker" was classified and broad
ened till it meant the shirking of
anything necessary to the winning
of the war.
As has always been the case dur
ing a war, the rich found many op
portunities to take advantage of
their country, and make huge sums
of money out of its needs and re
quirements. By thus taking an un
fair and traitorous advantage of
their country in its great distress,
they made the winning of the war
that much more difficult. Their
conduct could not have done more
harm had they given direct aid and
comfort to the German army.
It is true most of these cases of
grafting were legal-that is just
within the law, but that made them
none the less reprehensible. Mor
ally the rich are under the same ob
ligations as the very poor-to do
their very best to help win the war.
And when they thus traitorously
took advantage of their country,
they were no better than the soldier
in the front line trench, who ute
serted in the face of an enemy at
But this was not the only way
they could knife their country in the
hack, and almost to a man they tried
their best to do it. Taking ad
vantage of the confusion and excite
ment caused by the war, and when
the attention of the people was fo
cused on the armies in Europe, they
began gradually raising the price on
everything to the consumer. If
here and there someone noticed what
was going on and asked the reason.
the answer was always the same--
the war was the cause of it all.
The result ws that at a time when
the RICH were fairly coining money,
the poor worker, who was the back
bone and mainstay of the army and
navy, could hardly keep his head
above water, even by working over
time. The rich were growing richer
by leaps \and bounds, while the
workers were being ground into
poverty and misery.
This condition of affairs was in
tolerable. The workers asked for
an increase in wages, which would
enable them to live as a self-respect
ing workingman is entitled to live.
These requests were promptly and
flatly turned down. Why? Because
the rich thought they had the up
per hand of the workers. They were
going to use the big stick on them
and teach them to stay in their place
and not annoy the rich when they
were busy gathering in their ill
What big stick you ask? Why
the big stick called patriotism.
When the workers had the nerve
to demand fair wages and fair treat
ment, and ceased working till they
should get it, the rich got busy with
their big stick. All the big papers,
which by the way are owned and
controlled by the rich, swooped
down upon the poor working people
in a pack misrepresenting condi
tions, lying outright about them, and
reiterating again and again, that the
strikers were unpatr'iotic, anti-Ger
man, pro-German, etc., etc. That
they were double-dyed villians, arch
traitors to their country.
Why? Because they were strik
ing-interfering with the profits of
their belly was rubbing against their
heir belly was rubbing against their
backbone. The big papers, speaking
for their rich owners, said, "if
the workers were really patriotic,
why, rather than strike when the
country was at war, they would shut
up and keep on working."
Nothing would please the rich
better. The war being over, the
rich would have everything coralled,
and, they could then give their un
divided attention to putting these
presumptioils workers back in their
place, and teaching them to stay
So obstinate were the ric'i that
the government was forced to step
into the breach and grant the work
ers a living wage, and force the rich
to pay it to them.
Well, the war is over and now we
get back to Butte. Most of the big
copper mines have been shut down
for repairs they say. Really it was
for entirely different reasons. They
had a large supply of copper on hand
and cut down the supply to keep the
price up. That was one reason. An
other very-important ope wds to get,

Class A is composed of those men
who have a strong bony spine, and
walk upright on their hind legs.
Class B is composed of thtir oth
ers which have a soft cartilageous
spine which makes it very hard for
them to walk upright, so most of
them crawl around on their belly. A
few have corns on their knees.
Class A men are also known as

The A. C. M. is holding up "ur

convenient screen, they are reaching
out and striking with the big stick

falling right and left.

In this morning's Miner, we no
tice the activities of Walsh and
Myer, "Montana's Twin Judas" in
betraying the people, of whom the
"'voice," or the expressed desire is
the "voice of truth." Now, I don't
mean to say that the electing of W.
and M., the incomparables, expresses
the desire of the people-quite the
contrary. W. and NM. would start
an investigation of the bolshevist
activities in this country. Why, I
ask, do the two marionettes from
Montana particularly initiate this
move? Why not the New York or
Washington senator? It has been
my custom whenever W. and M.
start anything to look for the mo
tive which always exists, though
they (the A. C. M.) in their stu
pidity, believe they can conceal fronm
Now, I am going to predict, Mr.
Editor, that the move just started
will result in a recommendation be
ing made in the effort to stop the
bolshevist spread, to suppress the
"ultra radical" publications. This
sounds (will it? Will it-oh, you
stupid sheep-the public! ) the
death knell of that torch that lights
the way through the encircling
gloom-capitalist government -- to
liberty-the Butte Bulletin. How
easy it is for the pot-bellied, soft
palmed, truth crucifying horde to
guard their selfish interests by sim

The A. C. M. are double shooting
the turn. If the farce set for Feb.
18, doesn't aid in killing the Butte
Daily Bulletin, the assistance of
Uncle Sam is sought to gain the
same end. They dare not suppress
the Bulletin openly, or locally, they
start at the other end of the line
Washington. Why not, I ask you
now, while I have the chance, before

damnable evil that enslaves us- in

You are virtually crucifying your
fellow men by not lining up with

organizations on capitalisms side---
chambets of commerce, ,business

army and navy leagues, ministerial
associations, who minister not at all,
Let us-before the Bulletin is
shut down, line up solidly and ap
