A CALL FOR HELP
Tomorrow evening, Sunday, at the ball park, will be held a
mass meeting for all interested in the continued publication
of the Butte Daily Bulletin.
From time to time the Bulletin has been forced to make these
appeals to the public, to those who believe a free press is the
greatest weapon in the fight for freedom, both political and
Ever since the first issue the Bulletin has met the unremit
ting hostility of the exploiting interests of this city and state.
The best advertising medium in Montana, the Bulletin, has
been consistently boycotted by the advertisers.
Time after time those who advertised in the pages of the
Bulletin have been threatened with a stoppage of credit, and
forced to withhold their patronage.
Subscriptions at the present rate do not support a paper;
they barely pay for the ink and paper.
Unable to get advertising, we must depend on the generosity;
of those who see the necessity for a free press if we are to
If you will hark back to the time before the Bulletin began
to appear, you will realize the tremendous change that has
taken place in this community.
The Bulletin has exposed the crookedness and oppression
that existed here, it has stood four-square for the interests of
When the state council of defense attempted to throttle all"
protest against the evils that existed in this state, to place
everyone under the heel of the mining corporations, the Bulle
tin challenged them and succeeded in showing them up for
what they were-crooks and grafters hiding under the flag,
the tools of the interests who have been filching the most
sacred rights from the populace for many years.
When the brazen election frauds that have been perpetrated
time after time again occurred, the Bulletin acquainted the
people of the state with the facts.
The Bulletin exposed the presence of criminals on the police
force and, although threatened with the penitentiary and
death by the company tools, the Bulletin stuck to its guns and
made Butte a better place to live in.
Every decent man and woman, every child in Butte is better
off because of the Bulletin.
The recent restoration of the dollar that was taken from
the miners in February would never have occurred had it not
been for the Bulletin and those connected with it.
The A. C. M. fears publicity and the influence of the Bulle
tin because the free press has proved its power.
The Bulletin is your paper; we who work on it are merely
your servants and, although some of us have gone to jail be
cause of our efforts, we look upon it merely as part of the
struggle. We are willing to do our part if you will do yours.
It costs money to run a daily paper and the money must come
from those whom the paper serves. In these days when the
world is passing through a tremendous change and the old ideas
are going by the boards, the need for a press that correctly in
terprets daily events is indispensable.
It is as necessary as food and clothing, for without the one,
you will have great difficulty in getting the other.
Here in Butte and Montana we have made a glorious start
to a better day.
It would be criminal if we stop now when victory seems,
Come to the ball park Sunday and give all you can that a free
press may continue to exist in this community.

Clreat occasions call for great men.
Great men make great occasions. And
because the great issue of war and
the infinite opportunities of peace
have been handled by little men, by
short-sighted diplomats incapable of
understanding the value of what they
were gambling with, those of -us who
hoped and worked for a clean peace
are tempted to despair of the future.
We see that instead of the old
rivalries and greeds and brutalities
being wiped out and the foundations
laid of a new co-operative brother
hood among mankind, a few fortui
tously powerful individuals, a few
calculatingly powerful financial and
military interests, have committed
the future to the dangers of the past,
have left. bitterness where they migit
have made friendship, and are risk

were risked--and lost.

tion; Germany was promised that the
League of Nations shoull be a gen
eral association of nations.
We see that all these conditions
have been violated. We see that the
British empire, which "did not covet
a yard of Germlan soil," and whose
sons answerld the call to military
service in the spirit of an unselfish
crusade, emerges from the war

New York, July 19. --Considerable
light is thrown on the methods and
slpirit of the reactionary old guard
of the American Federation of La
bor by their recent attack upon 1
F"rank P1'. Walsh and Hasil AI. Man
ly. who succeeded Walsh as chair
nllan of the war labor board.
Senator Poindexter of Washing
ton had introduced a resolution ask
ing the president to call an indus
trial conference of big employers and
unionists, and in the resolution the
name of Walsh headed a list of 10
proposed representatives of labor.
Walsh himiself would be the last
man to advance himself as an au
thlorized representative of the labor
movement, because he considers
himself an indelpendent lawyer and
agitator, and not a labor nian, and
he realizes that labor should and
must speak through its regularly
chosen represeutatives. And the
saame applies to Manly.
Neither VWaisih i,l;r :Manly had any
thing to do with the Poindexter reso
lution and neither of them would
have approved it. 'Walsh was in
Paris as chairman of the Irish
American commission, while Manly
at, Washington wrote Poindexter a
letter expressing his disapproval of
Yet, without waiting . to invedti
gate, old guard spokesmen for the
fejderation publicly denounced the
'esolution, attributing it to Manly
and referring to "we!l-meaning
theorists who are as bad as menl who
are dishonest." The attack was led
by Mathew Wol, a vice president ofI

It was 'Walsh who conducted the
investigatious and hearing of the
1914 and 1915 and whose report to
congress did more to hearten the la
bor cause than any like development
iln a generation.
It was Walsh who secured the
adoption by the war labor board of
a set of priuciples that established
the right of organization and the
principle of a living wage.
And it was Walsh who worked
night and day for nine months to
get those princ-iples applied ill plant I
