Fellow workers on the Bulletin
Enclosed please find a little mite
to help a little on keeping the wage
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
1917 and 1918 it's hard sledding for
a dry land farmer. If the Bulletin
has to go down, put this little mite
in the defense fund for the two
brothers that were found guilty in
the capitalistic court in Helena that
was backed by the infamous "council
of pretense and expense" to the tax
payers of Montana.
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:
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 city,
should be deprived of the privilege of having an organ which can and will refute any un
just 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 from 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 i§ 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.

weal of the fatherland up to the last
minute of his rule.
It was on the first of November
in the great headquarters at Spa
that the subject of abdication was
first broached to the kaiser, who
promptly rejected the idea. On the
5th and 6th General Groener was
in Berlin where he gained the im
pression that the abdication of both
the kaiser and the crown prince
could hardly be postponed any
longer with safety, but felt as an
officer he ought not to broach the
matter further, since the kaiser had
once refused. On the 8th, the kaiser
conceived the notion of leading an
army against the revolters.
