NATION'S LIBERALS ON "SUSPECT" LIT
"DEMOCRATIC" ADMINISTRATION EMULATES REGIME 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 L
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- t
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 e
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.

UNITY AND UNION.
This has been designated as the
age of federation. On every hand we
behold the truth of this statement.
Never before have the people seemed
to be more conscious of the need of
unity. It is the theme of the greatest
writers and speakers of the era. The
exponents of higher education feel
the need of greater co-operation. The
religious thinkers are urging and
even formulating a federation of
churches, and so on down the long
line of organized forms.
Today we have before us the fed
eration of all the numerous labor
unions. This is a vital interest to a
great majority of the people. The
name of this movement is the "One
Big Union." Hitherto there have
been many unions. As is the rule in
such cases, a multiplicity of unions
would imply little real unity.
No modern ,idea has been such a
menace to the ruling class as the idea
of the uniting of the laboring class in
the cause that is so vital to all. In
this movement they see the force
that will eventually prove their
downfall. When a vast army is di
vided, the enemy sees a better
chance for victory; but when it calls
together all of its various recruits,
the enemy has a greater cause t'
fear. That is, of course, if the en
emy is in the minority, which is the
case of the present ruling class.
At the first thought of a union
that would embrace and include all
workers, the masters stirred. It wa_
as it were a number of small streams
that had for a time run in their own
y narrow channels, but under the
.stress of a great storm, burst their
it narrow limitations and swelled in one
it great rushing torrent that deluged
s the land. This is undoubtedly the
.e final outcome of the "One Big
e Union." It is the unity of purpose
If and the unity of principle that will
t bring the workers into a closer fel
lowship with one another everywhere.
1. Down then in each heart there al
ie ways has been a great desire for un
te derstanding. There has been a mut
, ual bond growing from this unity of
o thought. Out of the din of battle
hr men have cried aloud for this under
it standing, and, in turn, have heard
e voiced about them the same cry; at
first they listened as in a dream and
n then at length, they realized that
h their cherished idea was the univers
is al longing. This resulted in a gen
ie eral coming together of the masses
that was never known before. Each
took a step and stretched out a hand
to grasp that of a brother.
In their hour of mutual danger,
ie which was the very darkest, the
ve cause seemed lost. Then was seen
Lt. the first dim rays of the dawn. It
'd was the dawn of a new freedom for
of the enslaved men of the earth. What
st could be a more fitting expression of
e the joint recognition of this great
gel fact, than the "One Big Union?" Let
ue its one and all work to promote this
id great cause. Let us forget our in
of dividual opinions of how it should be
ig done and who should do it. And let
us strive for the spirit of unity,
d- which, together with organization,
or will result in the emancipation of the
a masses from the system of class mo

Mr. John Burke, through the open

SOUTH AMERICANS HAVE
UNIQUE FORM OF RAFT
(By Unilited Press.)
Buenos Aires.---(By Mail.)--Th(
traveler aboard, particularly the
: North American, daily runs across
examples of original and fearfully
amazing graft. One of the simplest
e and most astounding exists here, and
n worst of all, even the natives fall
t for it.
r About nightfall, between the tee:
t and dinner hours, it is a general cus
f tom to hire a "coche" and drivi
t about Palermo park to look over the
t well known beauty and chivalry. The
s carriage is caught in a jam of traf
fic and an obviously otherwise un
e employed youth sidles up to the con
it veyance, uses all of two perfectly
r, good matches to light the lamps of
I, the hired hack, then presents the in
e evitable open palm to the fare. The
- only reason tourists from the good
old U. S. A. come through is because
they cannot help admiring the lad':
nerve, or because thdy are too sur
prised to do anything but pay.
n ARM CUT OFF BY SAW
IS SPLICED ON AGAIN
- To have his left arm completlel'
severed an1d then to have it spliced
r. on to the stump again and be in .
' fair way to have compllete use of it
for the remainder of his life, is the
11 nusual experience of Wilbur Carl
s-I son, 16, an employe of a saw mill at
Basin Creek. Yesterday the boy':
oarm was severed. He was rushed t(
ig St. James hospital, where the severed
arm was replaced by )Dr. McCarthy.

In every societly and in ever'ly (l:asi r

solfish lnll; those who do good ii
wor'k for good work's sake, treating p
reward as a sec1ondary conlsidleration lt
bollntd to iladjust itself sooll r ior'

he told that. we, as at nation, are
viewed with nmounting suspicion by
our ililnmediate neighbors in Central

' l tions in Eurol'ope which have hlld some
l ghastly examples of the duplicity of
our state departmlent in the few
ntn 01hs past.
The remedy? The same writer
(nluot1 d iatove gives it:
"Oiur foreign policies would be
radically altered overnight if con
gress shllould pass a law requiring
p iublicity for every official conunun
ication and the listing in annual re
ports of every service undertakell iland

"Ouiir stlate departmient is today
probably the lmost secret and irlre

lense of democracy."'
OIrl job, .ltherefore, if we cherish
the tradition that we are a free l)eo
ple with a democratic governmlent, is
h to see that we send replresentatives
to congress who will do thiis very
thing -- drag our diplomatists out
into the open.
