"The Great Conspiracy,"
Sponsored by Helena Ed
itor, Denounced by Repre
sentatives of Union Men.
The regular meeting of the Metal
Trades council Wednesday evening
prosed to be a busy one.
One of the most important matters
to come up for consideration was a
set of resolutions denouncing a cir
eular headed, "The Great Conspir
ary," sent out by the Montana Loy
alty league, an organization fostered
by Will A. Campbell, editor of the
Hlelena Independent and member of
the council of defense.
The resolutions denouncing the
circular were adopted by the Sand
Coulee Miners' local No. 2020, U. M.
W. of A., and were concurred in by
the metal trades delegates. These
resolutions were also previously con
curred in, unanimously, by the Sil
ver ]low Trades and Labor assembly.
The resolutions, with introduc
tions, are as follows:
"THIE GREAT CONSPIRACY."

To those who have retd the "Great
