NATION'S LIBERALS ON "SUSPECT" LIST
"DEMOCRATIC" ADMINISTRATION EMULATESIREGIME OF FORMER CZAR
The democratic administration of the United States
has a "suspect" .list, just as the czar of Russia had. On
this list Will be found the names of some of the most
truly desirable citizens of the country. In the course
of these articles we will publish quite a considerable
list of such 'suspects." What are these citizens "sus
pected" of? Suspected of the same crime as the "sus
pects." of the, czar-the crime of being true to the
cause of political and industrial freedom. The Bulle
tin is now able to place before the American people
the story of the degrading depths to which this mis
named democratic administration has dragged the
government with which it was entrusted by the people.
From the New York Call.)
Under the direction of' Woodrow \Wilson "liberal"
leader, the "democratic" administrat.ion has built tipan
intricate and far-reaching system of espionage steii
sibly as a weapon in the war ag ainstl a tlocracy in t ier
many. Under the leadership of the same \Voodrow
Wilson the same democratic administration has Iralls
formed that espionage system inlto a wealpon against
democracy at home.
From ferreling out.CGe'men agents and sympathizers
Mr. Wilson's espionage has hIeen turited upon the po
litical opinioifs of the people of the Unliled States.
At last the ad in inistratiol i conltrol of the govern
mentt of the United Stales has taken its Iplae with the
old regiines of Russia and oft Prussia as an inqluisihtor
and a persecutor of those who differ from it iin their
political and economic convictions. As in Rulssia and
in Prussia, it is the militant f.rces of lnbor and liberal
ismn which are the objects of the inquisition andil perse
cution of the American governmentl.
The men and wonme in in the United States who seek
to make of ltheir country a land w\\here equality oF ,1'p
portunity is not an empty phrase, butt an econtomic re
ality, who strive to make democracy mean sometling
by bringitng it to the factory arid shop, are the people
who have come, in the America of today, to be the chief
ohbjects of this administration's suspicion and espio)n
p'roof of the most, sensational kind to support these
assertions has come into the possession o' the Call. In
orders, ptblications and lists the slory of the adminiis
Iration's espionage system can noi w be made pubrilic.
The details of lthe story w'ill he given in surbsequlient ar
li.les. The main outlines are as follows:
No less thani six deplartnletls or divisions of tLhe
Wilson a.dministration have beeni, since the beginningii
of' lie war, engaged in systematic espionage actlivity.
The military ilntelligence division of the army, the of
'ice of' the naval intelligence,- the war trade bonard in
lelligeence division, tihe clistonms inlelligence bureau.
the office of the chief' cable censor and the postofl''ice
departmentl have all heeni btisy since tie war began
gathering, literally by hook or by crook, ilnforiatlion
about persons offTicially known, as "sluspelts."
Six Official Divisions Have Agents Everywhere.
The mitilitary iltelligrence, kno\\ for shorit as the
"Mll)," and the narval intielligiei e, the "()NI," have
I;had agenits ill every part of thle countIry and in all sorts
iof places. The customs intelligence hrtreau, the

The ostensible objttil of this espionage was ti1t p

against agenti s and sy'niliaithizers of thie militniit labor

ititerested. Among the ill[n'ornaltion slpecified iii tihe
order was "(1) sabboltage, (2) strikes, (3) labor agi

I. V. VW. activity was another object of interest. This
wa\s ldefined in the order as "i(a) The activity, torgiani
ization anti personnel of aarcl.ist and I. W. W. groups,
(h) activity of pro-German socialists."
Radicals Suspected for Opposing Administration.
Everyblody connectled in any way withi the espionage
system knew what those directions meant. Most of1
the socialists are suspect because it is falsely assnltmed
that most of them are pro-German. Radical labor
leaders are suspect. Those who disagreed with the
administration war policy and had the (ournage to say
so are suspect. Those who openly sympalhized with
any of these suspects are also suspects.
To be a suspect means to have one's mail examined
with special suspicion, to havve one's personal life
gone over with a fine-toothed comb. to have one's per
sonal and business connections investigated, to he
hounded in a hundred ways.
These suspects include individuals, publications and(t
organizatlions of all kinds. There tire, as was to be ex
pected, huindreds upon hundreds of suspects whom
everyone knows have absolutely no sympathy or con
nection with enemy activity wholsoever, but are well
known as leaders in the struggle for labor's emancipa
lion, or merely liberals who were klnown for their
