"ITO ATTORNEY GENERAL PALMER,
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE,
WASHINGTON, D. C.
Dear Sir: Montana is now and has been since the beginning of
the world war in the grasp of a group of profiteering wholesale and
retail dealers in foodstuffs and other necessities, including coal. Prices
have been arbitrarily advanced by the dealers to the stage where the
incomes of the working people are inadequate to permit of the pur
chase of sufficient necessities to keep body and soul together, and
promises of further increases are made. Our state officials, who have
given evidence that they are in league with the food and coal pirates,
have failed to give us relief, and we now look to your office to come
As gyoul United States district attorney for Montana you have E. C.
Day, a self-confessed bribe-taker and a notorious friend of the inter
ests which are now guilty of profiteering. Mr. Day has not only sig
nally failed to take action against the profiteers, but seems to be ex
tending them every protection in his power.
As the result of the continued increases in price and the inactivity
of our state officials as well as Mr. Day, we demand that you, in the
interests of the people of the state of Montana, and to the end that
the present reign of the plunderbund in this state be ended, immediate
ly discharge E. C. Day from the office of United States attorney for
the district of Montana and replace him with some one of integrity who
will follow your orders and the wishes of the people and prosecute the
food hoarders and the profiteers.

Would Be Uneasy If
There Was No Unrest
Spokane, Wash.---"A great deal is I
said about industrial unrest," said
President Billy Short of the Wash- 1
ington State Federation of Labor in I
his Labor day address at Audobon
park, "but I would be much more
uneasy if there were no industrial
unrest at the present time.
"Unrest and discontent make for
progress; dissatisfaction of the work
ers with their condition has been the I
great- impulse in advancing civiliza- I
tion and I regard the unrest of today
a healthy sign.
Democracy to Be Achieved.
"This nation sent millions of young
men to Europe to make the world
safe for democracy, but, while the
world has been made safe for democ
racy is.ino- proof. that we have com
plete democracfij- No country can
have delnooracy while it tolerates the
monarchiet,,:we, have in the United
States,- the jalonarchies represented
by the great corporate interests. The
railway companies, the Steel trust,
the food monopolies, the lumber in
terests and many other great cor
porate combinations represent autoc
racy and these must be democratized
before we will have complete democ
racy in our country."
Short cited the double murder at
Breckenridge, Pa., 30 miles from
Pittsburg, as an evidence of the bru
tality which accompanies the indus
trial form of autocracy.
There was a coal miners' strike on
in Bridgeport and the county sheriff
notified the strikers that 30 gunmen
would be imported to treat the min
ers roughly. The gunmen came. An
old man-58 years old, not a union
man and not employed by the mining
company-was accosted by one of
the gunmen, who accused the old
man of being a striker, and forth
with attacked him with a steel club,
beating him to death, and finished
up by shooting several bullets into
the lifeless body.
Fannie Sellings' Murder.
Fannie Sellings, well known to
many in this state when she toured
Washington in behalf of the striking
garment workers in St. Louis some
years ago, was in Breckenridge,
where she had been engaged in or
ganization work for the Miners' un
ion. She saw the assault on the old
man and ran out, crying, "For God's
sake, don't kill the old man!" In
stantly Dan Morgan, the local mine
manager, ordered the gunman to kill
Mrs. Sellings. Seeing her danger,
she turned to seek protection. She
was' shot as she ran, falling dead in
the dooryard of a nearby house. Mor- .
gan ran over and, grabbing her by f
the heels, dragged her lifeless form s
to an automobile, into which was
also thrown the dead body of the b
other victim, and they were rapidly y
driven away. Everyone who saw the ,
tragedy has been arrested, and all t
are being held incommunicado. The ,
United Mine workers are now peti- I
tioning for a federal investigation of
the tragedy. i
Such incidents as this are causes
of the industrial unrest, declares Mr.
The denial of the right of the tim
bermen at Bellingham, this state, to
organize is another evidence of the
autocracy of the big corporate mon
archies. This must be overcome be
fore we will have democracy.
President Short predicts tha. 'he
efforts to organize the worker; ,: une
country into a political movement I
will meet with the most vicious op
position by the commercial autocrats.
The cry of bolshevism will be raised. i
But the people are going to unite
politically and restore government to
its proper place--the people.
"My experience in the legislature
last winter opened my eyes," he said.
"I know now that I could choose c
from this gathering of working peo
ple 90 individuals far better fitted
to make the laws for the people of
the state of Washington than those
who comprised the last legislature.
"We got something in the way of
laws from the last legislature, but
not what we should have," he con
tinued. "But we got all we deserved,
when one considers the laxity of the
people in choosing representatives to
look after their interests.
"The triple alliance now being or
ganized will make it possible for
workingmen to go to the legislature
by financing them. The workers can
not afford to go to the legislature un
less given financial assistance.
"We may not elect every official
from dog catcher to United States
senator, as some enthusiasts have
I predicted, but we will elect enough to

THE PRESIDENT AND THE PROFITEERS
By ROBT. L..1 )I I.ETTIE.
The president has ordered the de
partment of "justice" to prosecute t
the profiteers-some of them.
He was forced to act. A crisis
was near at hand.
The people have been robbed for
years. Day by day the housekeeper
returns from the marketplace exas- I
perated with the feeling of having
fallen among thieves. Public pati
ence is well nigh exhausted. Unrest
has ripened to the edge of open re
volt. The conditions grow more
menacing every hour.
It is time to quit fiddling. The
fire may get beyond control.
Also it is time to shed our blind
ers-time to try and see straight-
do our own thinking, and cease be
ing a nation of common dupes.
We have been lied to so much and 1
so long that we hardly know the
face of Truth.
We have been lied to about the
trusts; lied to about steel and iron
and coal and copper and oil and
food and clothing; lied to about the
railroads and the shipping.
We have been driven and buffeted
and storm tossed upon a sea of lies,
without chart or compass to point
the way to Truth.
It is time to reckon upon our
sourse; take counsel of experience;
sharpen our wits.
l This is no new thing which has
come upon us. Monopoly has been;

John L. Lewis, acting president of c
the Mine Workers. was to pick up the 1
more than 40 majority in the elec- A
tion of that year. C
It became the paramount--the Ii
sole issue in the campaign of 1912--
and Wilson won the presidency on j(
that issue. ti
This was Wilson's specific plat- sm
form promise in 1912: ('
(1) "To vigorously enforce the
criminal, as well as the civil law
against trust officials."
(2) "To enact such legislation
as will make it impossible for private
monopoly to exist in the United n
(3) To give the public sub- Ii
stantiil relief from the high cost of ci
living" by "breaking up criminal
commercial conspiracies." V
Woodrow Wilson made this plat- tc
form. These were his pledges to b
the American people.
In his book entitled "The New tl
Freedom" published after his cam- a
paign he says, in the signed preface it
that there was "put together here Ii
in their right sequences the more ii
suggestive portions of my campaign A
Space forbids extended reproduc- u
tion. I quote enough, however, to g
show that he understood that mo- a
nopoly controlled government and b
that he was solemnly pledged to 1
break the power of that monopoly n
and restore the government to the p
i people who elected him.
He said: :
"We have come to be one of the I
worst-ruled, one of the most conm
. pletely controlled and dominated c
e governments in the civilized world-
a no longer a government by free s
I opinion, no longer a government by t
conviction and the vote of the major
S ity. but a government by the opinion t
0 and duress of small groups of
i dominant men."
S Agaiin he said:
i "Our government has been for the t
past few years under the control of <
heads of great allied corporations
t with special interests."
o "The government of the United
i. States at present is a foster-child of
o the special interests."
ic And then he promised to destroy
the monopoly control. He said:
eI "I will not live under trustees if
is I can help it. No group of men less
I1 than a majority has a right to tell
n me how I have got to live in Ameri
He made a clear unqualified it
"We will not allow the few to hi
continue to determine what the tl
policy of the country is to be." o'
He made it still stronger: I1
"I ask who is going to be master lw
of the government of the United ha
States? It has a master now-those
who in combination control these pi
"I don't care how benevolent the
master is going to be, I will not live ci
under a master."
And finally he told the people 1
how easily it could be done: R
"So I say, there is nothing very
difficult about resuming our govern- It
ment. There is nothing to appall us it
when we make up our minds to set
about the task." "The way to re
sume is to resumle."
There you have it. It is so plain v
that there is nothing open to dispute.
He was to do this one thing for the X
American people. He denounced I
ours as "one of the worst-ruled gov- t
ernments in the civilized world"
the "foster-child of the special in- r
terests." Tie declared that he c
"would not live under a master."
He promised that the government c
should be given back to the people.:
He said: "There is nothing diffi- c
cult about our resuming our own t
j government; that the way to resume
was to resume."

1916, while we were at peace, the
masters of our markets forced our d
people to pay the war prices they
were exacting from England and

looked on complacently.
In 191.6 Wilson was re-elected be

Within just one month after his
second inaugural he asked congress
to put us into war.
No sooner were we in the war

United States," our "foster parents"
to come to Washington and take

t clares the formation of a combina
