for Gen. Pershing
(By United Press.)
Laclede, Missouri, Sept. 11.-
"Johnny" Pershing is coming home
and Linn county is a beehive.
Inlighted and titled by European I
crowned heads; honored and glori
fied by President Wilson and con- 1
gress and praised and feted by the
nation, General Pershing will be wel
comed back to his birthplace. The
date is not definite. General Per
shing, responding to Mayor Edmund
B. Allen's cablegram, "Laclede, your
old home, your boyhood friends and
Linn county is calling you," replied.
"I have heard the call. Will be
there soon after my arrival in the
And then Laclede went to work,
preparing the home-coming. When
"Johnny" comes home to Laclede it
will be a simple affair. There'll be
no Ceasar's victorious return to
Rome. "He's going to be just plain
'Johnny?' and that is just what he
will want to be," Mayor Allen said,
giving the keynote of the celebra
tion. "Lord knows he's been 'gen
eraled' enough by this time, and
'Johnny' is going to sound power
fully good to him."
So Laclede is planning: singing,
shutitng, handshaking and music
and much oratory followed by a fried
chicken dinner "on the ground"
when Johnny's in town.
The Pershing family will reunite
after the celebration. James Per
shing, a brother of Chicago; their
two sisters, Miss May Pershing and
Mrs. Bessie Butler of Lincoln, Neb..
will meet again in the old Pershing
"Aunt" Susan Hewett, who baked
apple pies for the general when he
was a barefoot boy, will be a guest.
"Aunt" Louisa Warren, who officiat
ed at the birth of Pershing and first
bathed and clothed him, will be an
other guest of honor. George F.

ARBITRATION PROVING TI
FARCE IN AUSTRALIA
Capitalism Scoring at Ex- F
pense of the Laboring
Sydney, Australia, Aug. 1.--(By
M:ail.)-When arbitration as a means di(
of settling industrial disputes was in fo;
ils infancy in Australia many people br
believed that great things would be ,
accomplished by this new-found piece st
of legislative machinery. Long years ba
of bitter experience has done much sh
to break down this fatuous belief in si
the minds of anybody who has had m
dealings with arbitration in Austra
t'p to date the only benefit arbi- at
tration has secured to the workers I
has been a reduction of the working pa
bours. The solution of the wag to,
problem is as far from solution, by ar
arbitration at least, as ever. th
Arbitration Too Slow. ce
In the first place the system of ar
arbitration in Australia is too slow
- and cumbersome for the workers. so
- What the worker wants is a court Pe
r which will immediately handle his
- case and give him justice-and this to
ihe does not get in the Australian ar- 10
i bit ration system. NC
Men naturally grow impatient at N.
Sthe long delays that occur between
t he presentation of their case and the a
hearing of same-- -and very often be- M
tween the two periods the profiteer t
has got in his fine work so that the
a wards when made are useless.
The chief objection, of course, is
the action of employers in taking yc
back everything that the arbitration st
court awards the workers. This hap. N
Ip ens, of coull'se, whether there is ar- be
bitration or not. But it is what. ei
t makes the arbitration court a farce.
e and will continue to do so whilst
' profiteers are allowed to exploit the
" workers in the way they are at the
present time. It is this kind of
business that has proved to the Aus
Iralian worker that he is no better
off, as far as the purchasing power
of his wages are conlcerned, than he
iwas in the days before arbitration
was thought of. F
Free Hand for 'Profiteer.
The system is plainly lopsided. The
r profiteer who controls a free hand, t<
r while the worker, who in most cases s1
produced the necessities of life, is
I1 compelled to plead for authority to i
e the arbitration court to charge for a
his labor. Under such absurd condi- b
it tions it can be readily seen that as 1
any award is granted the workers,
the employers having to pay those a
awards are going to lose no time in I
recuperating themselves at the ex- i
pense of the very people who get the b
wage increases, as well as the gen
2eral community. So it comes about
that while Australian wages appear w
good, the spending power of the o
money gives it a false impression of p
wealth that does not exist.
It is no benefit for the Australian
st worker to go homne and announllce to
e, his wife that the arbitration court
ug has granted him an increase of a few
D. cents per day if he finds that the
t; landlord has increased his rent and
t; the store has increased the price! of
i; almost everything he and his family
r- have to eat.
The root of the trouble lies, of
course, in the fact that private per
It. sons are allowed to control the na
tion's necessities, without any pro
vision being made to curb their ac
Iivitics. Unless something is done
along these liueid arbitration in Aus
tralia must always continue to be the
ghastly failure it is at the present

Bremerton. Wash., Sept. 12. -
Henry Tortensen, instead of being
well on his way to San Francisco, is
at his Bremerton home today.
Henry is considerably peeved and
highly nettled, to say nothing about

is wifey wouldn't let him sail the

With 30 years' experience in the

St. Louis, Mo. - Federal Judge

brisk all week. All the booths are t
well stocked, mostly with good. fresh t
stuff. And the prices are not too €

siderably lower than those aulked in I

Not only fruit and vegetables, but

are getting cheap everywhere.
Several ranchers from the Jeffer

personally dispose of a large amount I
of potatoes and green corn. Pota
toes will probably be cheaper tomor

corn, the season is about wound up.
No corn may safely stay out nights

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 enldorsed:
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 reconunends 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 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.

COUNCIL AND LEAGUE
Consumers' League Meet at
Chambers, Adjourn to
The Consumers' ieague and the
city council both have meetings
scheduled for tonight. The league
was granted permission to meet at
the council chambers when it was or
ganized, and in lieu of any other
home, has been meeting there since.
Tonight, however, the league will
have to give way to the city fathers.
The aldermen have important busi
ness for tonight. They will be called
on to think in big figures, no less,
indeed, than six of thelm. It is a
$500,000 bond issue they will have
to consider. It is a long contem
plated plan of the administration to
raise the cash for paying off the old
back warrants, which draw 6 per
cent interest, by selling a new issue
of municipal bonds, which will draw
only 51/2 per cent.
By this procedure, it is expected
both to save the city $25,000 per
year by reason of the reduced inter
est rate and to better the city's
credit and make things generally
more shipshape and comfortable
Members of the Consumers' league
say that their meeting will be held
just the same, somewhere. The
word is to assemble as planned at
the city hall, and then afterward re
tire to whatsoever room may be open
