C'IIIMINAL . I aPERIALiSM
IN OUt F'()ItEI(tN POLICY.
Last week we read the Associated
Press news that our government, the
same as the British government, has
declared the present bourgeoisie ter
rorism of Finland as the de facto
government of that country.
The cruelest imperialistic element
of all imperialistic Europe is domi
nant in Finland since their civil war
last year, which the terroristic white
guard of Finland won over the social
democratic red guiard, with the aid,
of German imperial arms, after kilt
ing off nearly one-fourth of the abli
bodied men of that country.
In return for this scarlet favor oL
the stuns the bourgeoisie government
of Finland turned over all that coun
try's resources for the -lins to be
used in war against the allies. The
terroristic white guard governmeut.
after getting in power, immediately
conscripted the able bodied men into
military service for the German gov
ernment, to fight our boys in France.
Thousands of Finnish young men
who opposed this criminal exchange
of resources and men for the kais
er's governmlen't were sunlmarily exe
cuted by the now de facto govern
mont. The conscripted men of Fin
land were rushed to the German
front against the American, French
and British soldiers, and, while we
have no other information but th(
correspondence of these conscriptea
soldiers to their relatives and friend;
in this country, it is safe to say that
more than one-half of the Finnish
conscripted army was fighting witi;
the German army against the allies.
This, then, is the war record of the
de facto government of Finland
which the diplomatic circles of Eng
land and our own country here havrt
accepted as the right government it.
Finland to do business with. Just
now I read the news published in the
Industrialist of Duluth, Minn., from
Finland, that, since the civil war,
the now de facto government has
executed 12,500 men and women of
the working class in Finland, who
refused to sulbmit to this Protssian
istic government of terrorism in their
country. Their hands stained scarlet
with the gore, they caused to be bled
from our boys in France to support
the terrible regime of Prussianism
in Europe and the innocent blood of
the freedom-loving peoples of Fin
land still streaming toward the skies
the British and our United States
stateslmen are ready to declare them
the just right, de facto government of
Oh, ye Gods! Ha:s the last spark

W\onder if all the people of all the
world can be fooled all the time.
JOHN A. NIVA.
It is an old and true saying that a
person is never too old to learn. WVell,
if the law as stated in the Miner last
Sunday under the heading of County
Attorney Jackson's defense of his
reason for not prosecuting the Hon.
Ed Morrissey is correct. I must try to
forget all I ever knew or thought I
knew about the duty of the state' in
dealing with the revolting case that
is occupying the minds of the people1
in Butte at the present time. .
County Attornexy Jackson is report
ed as saying that in cases of murder
or Ilanslaughter unless it is proved
by positive testimony that death was
caused by violetice on the part of the
accused. the case will be dismissed.
In this case steen reputable phy
sicians at the inquest testified that
Mrs. Mlorrie evy id not die from
violenee, but from the terrible dis
eased condliio!n of her organs.
I have always been tinder the im
pression lihat w\ihen a crime was dis
covered, it was the duty of the coun
ty attorney to set all the mnachinery
at his colmlllanild in motion to bring
the guilty pIerson to time.
Mr. Jaclikso says: "It is absolutely
inmmaterial to mei as to whether or
no u it a en I' }is onl hbtweeon I1oe c.liiet
of detectives and any set of nmen or
any newspaper or newspapers in this
city." That statement of Mr. Jack=
son's is absolutely correct, but what
bearing has it on the case. I may be
wrong again. but I have for years
been laboring under the delusion that
criminal prosecutions were not con
ducted for the benefit of individuals
or newspapers, but that hey were
prosecuted pro bono publico. If by
any chance I am correct in stating
that that is the law, why does Mr.
Jackson have to wait until some in
dividual or individuals conime up to
his office with some direct evidence.
as he says he is tired of this second,
third and fourth hand evidence. Now,
as I have said before, is it not hli
duty to collect evidence--he has
enough and more than enough, if he
cares to go after it.
Mr. Jackson also states that he
first saw the news in the Bulletin on
March 29, and that hie at once had
seven physicians examine the body.
It is true the physicians, also the
jury at the inquest, found Mrs. Mor
rissey had died of natural causes, but
does that of itself relieve the state of
all further responsibility? If it does
that is something else I have learned.
Suppose, for argument, I have a spite
at some person, and want to beat hiin
up, as Meorrissey was seen beating
his Wife, if I take the precaution of
finding out that he or she is suffer
ing from some serious internal disas
ter, all that would be necessary, 1
presume, if th:s case can be taken as
a precedent would be to get a few
reputable physicians to testify that
the internal disorders were sufficient
'o cause death, no matter how badly
the body was bruised and beaten up.
There is, of course, one other vital
point I would desire to be sure about
and that is this: Would the law as I
understand it from perusing Mr.
iackson's statement apply to any
other similar case in Butte or does
it specifically refer to this case?
If it refers to all cases of this kind,
then the law in Butte at present is.
as far as I can understand it, as fol
If I violently beat up, bruised and
killed a person, provided lie is not
suffering from some serious internal
trouble, then I would be charged
with murder or manslaughter.
If on the other hand. I beat up and
kill a person who is suffering fromt
some serious internal trouble and
who naturally has not the vitality or
power of resistance that a person in
a normal condition would have, it
does not matter whether de.ath is
directly caused by the blows, or in
directly on account of the weakened
condition of the person's system, all
I have to do is to produce medical
evidence at the inquest that the death
was front natural causes. If the jury
swallows that, then the state's re
sponsibility is at an end and I ant
free to look for my next victim.
If that is the law, well, "null
PRO BONO PUIBLICO.
Prescott, Ariz., May 12, 1919.
Editor Bulletin: Referring to the
manuscript I sent you by registered
mail, May 2, I will say there are
some things I made no mention of in
the text. One of them is that I was
offered my release three months aft
er my commitment on condition that
1 go back to Powell on probation,
where I was arrested.
I refused it because I was given
to understand that I would be sent
hack if my conduct was displeasing
to those who had mee committed.
Manifestly they did not consider me
insane at that time. They sent me
there to discredit me and by the con
ditions of the parole they offered
they meant to still keep me "in
hand." When I refused they told
me I would never be released until I
When the scandal grew they tried
to intimidate mie, and then to buy me
off and finally by using my wife as a
leverage to work on my feelings.
After she wrote that she was work
ing for the camp cook as narrated
in "Elisha's Hosts," she sent we two
little bags of nuts as imy Christmas
present and both the doctor and the
steward showed peculiar inquisitive
ness, asking to see my present and
laughed heartily at my discomfiture.
I made no mention of such things'
in my narrative. In fact the end
;ng of "Elisha's Hosts" was designed
to protect the good name of my wife
and boys more than anything elke.
"Elisha's Hosts" has been accept
ed by the Grafton Publishing 'om
oanuy, 72 South Los Angeles street,
I,os Angeles, and is now being made
into a scenario by them.

true view of my experience and While
I make no change in "Elisha's Hosts"
I am writing this to explain away
any seeming discrepancies.
I am a member of the Prescott
painters local No. 405. I have been
working on the United States hos
pital here. My contract is up May
14. I may then go to San Diego.
My wife is at Powell, Wyo., still.
Mly oldest boy, Wilbur was takeni in
to the reclamation service on my
commitment. My second son, Ray
mond, is cashier of a bank at Lovell,
Wyo. My youngest boy is with his
mother at Powell, Wyo.
I mention these things that you

I should add that all the officials
at Poweil. Wyo., were removed after
my escape and that my wife got title
to the homestead they were with

I give you permission to use the
matter I sent in any way available,
but if you publish the entire story, I

It may be well to wait until the

all the facts I have given you.
The patients I mention in "Elisha's
Hosts Revealed," Tom McGill and
Gates (I don't remember ever hav

from Oklahoma) were both living
when I made miy escape. I have had
no word froin them since, but I am
sure inquiry will establish that they
are now dead.

accomplished his purpose. If his

the truthfulness of my story.
If you find my matter unavailable
will you kindly hold it until you hear

SFAMOUS WOMEN I
The career of Madame Recaimier
has rarely been equaled ini the
world's history. Her beauty, her
charm and her knowledge were such
that she exerted great influence over
all with whom she caume in contact.
Her influence over Napoelon is par
ticularly interesting. The first time
he saw her was on the occasion of
his delivering a rejoinder to ali ad
dress presented to him on his return
from Italy. Madame Recamier', to
see him better, arose fromn her seat.
This attracted Napoleon's attention.
He met her later at his brother's
house, and went out of his way to
bie near her and speak with her. He
was prevented, however, by circum
stances. lie was then first copsul.
When he became emperor she re
fused to attend his court. His jeal
ousy was aroused, and among other
indignities, she received an order of
exile. -Madame Recamier died in
