The road has been built as a modern, up-to-date road
that can be turned over to the Milwaukee alone, of all rail
ways. It would be of no special value to any individual,
because it is useful only for the purpose of bringing out
timber or logs, excepting to some railroad company that
wants to use it for permanent purposes in connection with
its own system, and that is the finding of Major Ray.

MEN WHO ARE IN
lullndreds of workers are literally rotting in the jails of this country
becaise of their activity in the cause of Labor. Many of these viclinsi
of the worli-wide class \ar are aw\ating tlial---and have been wailing
lfor many weary m, ntihs for ilhe speedy trial guaranteed them by the
IUiteed States (;Lotslilntion. Others were tiied and sentenced to teiirms
ra'tgig from one to twenty years duriing the period of \xwar hysteria,
and appeals in their cases are now being taken lfrom King Capital drtunk
to King Capital sober.
Some of the prisoners have escaped by death, others are dying, many
have contracted tuibercitlu.sis and other loathsome diseases, and all iare
suffering utoltld agouy from close confinemene t in the fetid atmosphere,
fromw insanitilary and unhealthy sur'rou:dilgs, from poor and insullfficiet..

Paus attempts to securre bail for all of these workers in Jail have not
heejn atneinled with great success because of1 the lack of system. In
dividuanls sought to secure bail for thleir pIersonal friends, and failing to
get the. necessary amount they returned what had been collected, thus
naking Itheir entlire efforts fruitless. T his was the condition fabirig the
delegates fIrom all thie western district organizatilons of the Industrial
\Vorilhers of lthe Worltd when they met in conference on July 3 and 4 in
Seat tle. Tlie delegates solved the )problem by an unfailing means
A Bail andl Bond Committee was elected to systematize the work of
collecting hail and a nation-wide drive has been started to secure the
loan of cash. Libert'y Bonds and property sufficient to gain the release
of all class war prirsorers. Witlh pr'actically noi advertising Six Thou
sand Dtillars were raised in the first five days. More than Two Hu-n
dred Th:ousand I!ollarhs are needed to rclease those now being held for

:person making the f oit, another being retained by the Bail and ]ionld
Committee. and the third being filed with the Trades Union Savings
itand Loan A-\ssociaRtion of Sealftic, with whom all funds, bonds and prop
