Conssuimers Hit, Packers.
There is eviuence that the recent
cut in prices paid for cattle and hogs
on the hoof was done with the inten
0,on of lining up stock raisers be
hind the packers out of economic
necessity. Testimony of a few stock
raisers and eastern farmers before
4 the comluitt," indicates that that re
suilt has bee,, achieved in a few cases.
In this connection, Jessie R. laver,
Washington representative of the Na
tional Consumers' league, has issued
Ihe following comment:
"The farmers of the country are
being made to suffer for the sins of
the packers, as in times past. Only
this time the penalty has been in
posed for a different reason. Just as
hearings were started on the Kenyon
Kendrick bills to regulate the pack
ers the most unprecedented drop in
price. paid for hogs and cattle took
place. And so last week Washing
tIn, was flooded by cattle raisers, cat
. a feeders, farmers and independent
packers to beg congress to put a stop
to all this agitation. Many of the
n:.. t, who have appeared are probably
SIt wholly disinterested in their
point of view, but many are honest,
hard-working men who even yet do
not inu . stand the forces of the
pow;ers which are robbing them and
have been robbing them all these
years. Meanwhile the packer ware
houses are bulging with enough
stor( d food to carry their business
for tie winter. They can afford to
cease buying for awhile.
"Tr'e consumers must realize that
the packer monopoly can not be
smashed without having an old-es
tablished, nation-wide co-operative
m:.venent ready to do the work, nor
can people feed themselves if the
packer monopoly is merely smashed,
with no county and city abattoirs and
public markets to take its place."

ON STRIKE IN
Bosses Organizing Their
Own Union. Workers Say '
They Will Leave Trade i
Rather Than Go Back. n
(Special to The Bulletin.)
Chicago, Sept. !.--The United a
Shoe Workers of America, whose h
members in Chicago went on a strike
on Mharch 19; in an effort to get a f
living wage and better working con- t
ditions, are still striking, and the ma- c
jority of them have announced that ,
they will leave the trade before they a
will again submit to the tyranny of It
the bosses. Following are the firms t
which are affected by the strike, and c
all organized labor is urged to lend a
their support ill every way possible:
Florsheim Shoe company. J. P.
Smith Shoe company, J. E. Tilt Shoe
company, Selz Schwab Shoe company. t
J. W. Carter Shoe company, and
Flexible Shoe company of Chicago. C
One of the demands which is made
by the shoe workers is for the 44
hour', week. Following is a circular
which is being sent out by the shoe
To all members of organized labor:
Greeting: We herewith submit
some of the more important facts
concerning the present strike of Chi
cago's shoe workers, which we hope
you will earnestly consider and re
alize what is being done to break the
present strike and destroy the Shoe
Workers' union. -
After years of effort, we have suc
ceeded in organizing nearly 1,700 of
the approximately 2,000 shoe work
ers normally employed in Chicago's
shoe factories, and during the past
two years particularly our growth
and progress was such as to presage
a 100 per cent organization by Jan
uary, 1920; our progress was steady
and healthy and the splendid gains F
made in increased wages, reduced
hours and improved working condi
tions, fulfilled the hopes of our most
optimistic members and just accord- to
I ingly did it bring forth the condem- sl
nation and abuse of the shoe corpora
tions, who have extracted millions n
in profits from our labor. w
It is here worthy of mention that bi
in no shoe city in the United States 1
were the shoe workers so stabiliezd
or specialized in one factory on one
job as here in Chicago-dozens of 1h
them having worked for the same in
firm for from 15 to 25 years, yet bi
these are the very ones who now are. ti
almost without exception, denounced
as Bolsheviks, anarchists, etc., and w
are now marked for the black list, 01
the firms boasting that they will p!
never again he employed in this city,
During the 18 months prior to
March, 1919, there were adopted, all
told, about 80 bills of wages in the
various factories, obtaining increases
of from 10 to 75 per cent, also the
hours were reduced from 54 and 52
to 50 hours per weak in several of
the small, heretofore unorganized
factories, some of which benefitted
shoe workers who had never known
what it meant to have their wages
raised, hours reduced or working
conditions improved by and through
organization or collective dealing.
All this was viewed with nluch bit
terness by the various shoe manufac
turers, who, true to the greed and
dictates of their class, could not
stand to see their employes enjoying
such freedom; consequently, when
we voted biy referendum, March 1.
by 12 to 1, to demand that the work
ing hours lie reduced from 50 to 44
per week, the stage was immediately
set against us, but these mannfactur
ers, like all others of their class, had
their ears to the ground, and well
knew the force they had to reckon
with. They immediately organized
into an association, employed a high
priced gang of anti-labor, La Salle
street lawyers, and. began jirking all
the wires attached to the city admin
istration, the courts. the police de
partmenit and then through a series
of secret conferences contracted with
what is and for years has been known
among shoo workers as the mnost no
torious strikebreaking agency in the
t'nited States--the general officials
of the so-called Boot and Shoe Work
ers' union--consequently, the manu
lfacturers coldly rejected the 44-hour
week demand, and when the strike
was declared on 'March 19 these so
called uniioi officials had agents in
practically every shoe city in the
United Slates and Canada, particu
larly in the unorganized towns, or
ganizing shoe workers and supplying
them with union (?) cards for the
sole purpose of shipping them to
Chicago to scab in the strike which
they knew would be declared. The
factories remained closed for three
weeks, and the hbegan operating un
der protection of the police and tw'o
blanket injunctions, issued bIy Supe
rior Court Judges )ennis E. Sullivan
and C. N. Foel. Pickets were arrest
ed, jailed and cited for contempt by
tile scores, and the shamleful treat
ment and abuse to which they were
subljected by the police and in the
court rooms lproved again for the
- nmany thousandth time that a striking
working man or woman has no con
stitutional right when that right con
flicts with the profits of a million
aire corporationist. All this we knew
and generally expected, but the most
n shameful and saddest feature of all
the dirty work is the fact that huri
dreds of scabs have been brought
here fronm the four corners of the
continent, supplied with Pullman
tickets, meals, booze, smokes and
automobiles when they arrived here
i to take them to rooming houses, al
l eady procured for them on the south
and southwest sides (nearly all of
the strikers live on the north and
northwest sides) and a so-called
' union (?) card issued to them at the
factory, if they had not previously
been supplied with one, and they are
here today scabbing against the 44
hour week under the protection of
injunctions land officials of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor and the
police at the same time. We are glad
to state, however, that such disgrace
ful conduct is not condoned by all
the local A. F. of L. officials, nor by
the majority of the delegates in the
1 ijaij $ULLiriI1Y
Central Labor council, nor by 90 per
cent of the rank and file of unions in
the A. F, of L. Several times the
matter was brought to the floor of
the Central Labor body and each
time it was roundly denounced by
a majority of the delegates present,
but favorable action could not ie0 ob- 3
tained for reasons and methods k
which the average bench worker well
understands. The factories now have B
more scabs employed than they for- di
merly had union men and women, yet ct
none of them are turning out 50 per ci
cent of their normal otput.put, most of pl
which are readily rejected by the p
shoe dealers and can now be pur- n
chased in case lots at knockdown st
prices from the numerous second- t(
hand merchants who stock up at rum- u
mage sales, etc. n
A United States labor cotmmnission- g
er, the state industrial commission fi
and a committee of five city alder- t<
men appointed by Mayor Thompson e
0 have all used their good offices and h
e efforts nunierous times to try and ef- ti
feet an honorable settlement, but' f
their efforts have been ignored as ti
coolly as the strikers themselves, so 0
we accordingly have no alternative
y and must continue fighting as we a
f have since March 19 against this en- b
s tire combination of corporations ii
d courts, lawyers, police and as base s
and treacherous a gang of scoundrel i
labor fakers as ever disgiraced the r
labor movement, and we will con- i:
ie tinue to fight as we have until we es- c
tablish the 44-hour week in Chicago, f
d the same as we have in other shoe t
cities. We have obtained the 44
l0 hour week in three small factories I
h- ere, who are not in the association, I
ir as well as in dozens of shoe factories s
te in the different eastern cities. Our I
membership now exceeds that of the s
so-called Boot and Shoe Workers' t

workers can or do look for improve- E

slaves' banner afloat. I wish I could
make it 100 bucks or more, but
with no crop this year and only 63
bushels of wheat in the years of

HOW ABOUT THOSE PLEDGES?

Silver Bow Trades and Labor Council
At the regular meeting of the Silver Bow Trades and Labor assembly last night the
following communication was endorsed:
Butte, August 4, 1919.
To All Affiliated Unions: Butte, August 4, 1919.
The Silver Bow Trades and Labor council, realizing the magnificent fight being waged
by the Butte Daily Bulletin, which is the official organ of this body, for its existence,
against the combined opposition of big corporations and profiteering business men, and
thoroughly understanding that this paper is positively the only medium of publicity through
which labor unions are at liberty to express their side of any controversy that may arise
with the employing interests of this community, earnestly hopes that the paper may secure
the support which it so richly deserves.
That the persons in charge of this publication may be free to devote their entire time
and energies to the interests of the workers, instead of a greater or less portion of it in
securing funds to meet current expenses, is a very important thing, and with this idea
in view this council recommends to all affiliated unions and union men in general who
have the welfare of the labor movement at heart:
First, that all unions who feel so inclined agree to donate a stated sum per month,
no matter how small, and at once inform the Bulletin management of the action taken.
Second, that members of locals, individually, do likewise, if the organization to which
they belong does not feel that it cares to act in the matter.
One affiliated union has already agreed to pay $30 per month to the Bulletin, and, as
the deficit will not exceed $2,500 per month, there should be absolutely no reason why:,
the working men and women of Montana, after having established a daily in this i,.c ,
should be deprived of the privilege of having an organ which can and will refute any$tii
ajust statement, made by the corporation papers concerning them.
If 10,000 workers in this great state would assess themselves but 25 cents each, per
month, we would have a daily that the exploiting interests well might fear, and, as it is,
Butte is a cleaner city than for years.
The Bulletin started the fight against the profiteers.
The Bulletin exposed crooked election methods.
The Bulletin was the direct cause of the public market.
The Bulletin made it possible to buy produce direct fronm farmers.
The Bulletin exposed and secured the conviction of a crooked chief of detectives, when
the corporation papers laughed at its efforts.
The Bulletin is fighting at all times the battle of the workers, and if its management is
willing to remain true to the cause of labor and suffer imprisonment and other forms of
persecution that the paper may perform the mission for which it was intended, the least
the laboring people of Montana can do is to furnish the sinews of war, which will be a
very small amount per capita when apportioned among the many.
The council suggests that you decide upon an amount that will in no way distress either
an individual or an organization, and then send in that sum promptly on the date agreed
In this way the question will be solved easily and as time rolls along we will more and
more understand that "the pen is mightier than the sword."
These statements shall be given to the Butte Daily Bulletin, under the signature of the
officers of this organization, with full permission to use them, within the limits set forth,
for the purpose of in any way assisting the future prosperity of the said Bulletin.

no salaried officer in the entire or

arches were being erected in the
downtown sections. Mammoth cities .
of tents were springing up and band

Columbus was preparing to wel- S
come 100,000 veterans of the civil
war to the twenty-second national
encampment of the Grand Army of ,
the Republic. Then the blue-coated d
hordes swept into Columbus from
every section of the country.
On Tuesday, September 11, 1888, t,
was held the greatest parade in the T
history of the city. Leading the y
columns of sturdy civil warriors t]
were General William Tecumseh b
Sherman and ex-President Ruther- n
ford B. Hayes.
The soldiers marched with firm
step and clear eye. The day was b
theirs. A half hundred bands and n
drum corps resounded martial music e
while the tread of thousands of feet C
beat in cadence on the cobblestones
of High street. The procession was
miles in length and took hours and
hours to pass the reviewing stand in
East Broad street.
Commander-in-Chief Rea, Sher
