The national championship meet

the grandest of the grapd old cham

A. C. For the first time in 11 long
years )Dan was not a factor in de
ciding townership of the running hop,

way, Ihis triedi and true old veteran
had won nine times in 10 years.
Ahearn leaves the list of cham

the wish that almost every champlion
entertains, viz., that he might retire
undefeated. But with track and
field championis, as with others, few
leave the limelight without showing
the inevitable signs of going back.
I Old Dan was. in his day, the greatest
"'hop ,epper" that ever hit the take

thtlt. His record of 50 feet 11
inchIes, made at Celtic park back in
1909. has never been approached by
anything on two legs.
Aitearn used to represent the N. Y.

"Was there any other reason for

After a pause, Judge Gary replied:

BAIL IS WANTED
WITHOUT FAIL OR THE
-I-- MEN WHO ARE IN JAI
Hundreds of workers are literally rotting in the jails of this country
because of their activity in the cause of Labor. Many of these victims
of the world-wide class war are awating trial-and have been waiting
for many weary months for the speedy trial guaranteed them by the
United States Constitution. Others were tried and sentenced to terms
ranging from (lne to twenty years during the period of war hysteria,
rad appeals in their cases are now being taken from King Capital drunk
f.o King Capital sober.
Some of the prisoners have escaped by death, others are dying, many
have contracted tuberculosis and other loathsome diseases, and all are
suffering untold agony from close confinement in the fetid atmosphere,
from insanitary and unhealthy surroundings, from poor and insufficient
food, and froni inhuman treatment accorded them by brutalized guards.
Past attempts to secure bail for all of these workers in jail have not
been attended with great success because of the lack of system. In
dividual-s sought to secure bail for their personal friends, and failing to
get the necessary amount they returned what had been collected, thus
making tlheir entire efforts fruitless. This was the condition facing the
delegates from all the western district organizations of the Industrial
Workers of the World when they met in conference on July 3 and 4 in
Seattle. The delegates solved the problem by an unfailing means
A Bail and Bond Committee was elected to systematize the work of
collecting bail and a nation-wide drive has been started to secure the
loan of cash, Liberty Bonds and property sufficient to gain the release
of all class war prisoners. With practically no advertising Six Thou
sand Dollars were raised in the first five days. More than Two Him
di'ed Thousand [)ollars are needed to release those now being held for
their Labor activity.
Sums of Five Dollars and up are accepted as loans, and all cash, Lib
erty Bonds or property is tabulated in triplicate, one copy going to the
person mnaking the loan, another being retained by the Bail and Bond
Conunittee, and the third being filed with the Trades Union Savings
and Loan Association of Seattle, with whom all funds, bonds and prop
erty schedules will be banked.
Only those who have been proved loyal and trustworthy are being
sent out. as collectors. Everything possible has been done to safeguard
this bail and bond fund, from the selection of the committee to the
choice of the batik. A portion of the fund is being set aside to return
loans on demand in case persons who have made them are forced to
leave the country or have other reasons for making a withdrawal.
Bail will be used to release specified persons where that is desired,
but otherwise the release will take place by a blind drawing of names,
thus insuring fairness to all prisoners. By common consent the men
in Wichita. Kansas. jail will first be released, as they have been held
the longest and jail conditions are worse there than anywhere else in
the entire counlltry. This bail has nearly all been subscribed, and the
men will be made accredited collcctors when released, and their speedy
release will help to set others at liberty.
No necessity exists for arguinmerlt. Your duty is clear. If your ears
are init deatf to a call from your class, if you feel that an injury to one

Stool Pigeons Testify.
Mr. Gary will be examined again
today. He gave way for an hour to
several employes of the corporation's
mills, who told the committee they
knew of no reason for the strike. All
agree that the men who voluntarily
responded to the strike call were
mostly foreigners, and one of them,
John J. Martin, a Youngstown ma
chinist, attacked the leaders of the
national steel workers' committee.
Is Now a Scab.
"I think John Fitzpatrick, chair
man of the workers' committee, with
W. Z. Foster, secretary of the com
mittee, as an able assistant, will over
throw this government if they are
not stopped," said Martin, who ex
plained that he himself forhierly was
a union man. They were engaged, he
said, in "scuttling the American
Federation of Labor."
Martin testified that the steel em
ployes at Youngstown, "Americans
and foreigners alike," had been 'ter
rorized by the threats to burn houses
and kill children." Judge Gary also
said in the course of his testimony
that the company had much "hear
say evidence" that such threats had
been made against men who would
not join in the strike.
(Special United Press Wire.)
Washington, Oct. 2.-A comnpro
mise or arbitration of the steel strike
was flatly spurned today by Judge
Gary, who is appearing before the
senate labor committee. He said:
"I cannot talk about a compromise
or arbitration at the present time,
as mituch as I regret it."
Gary bases his refusal to meet the
attempts to settle the strike on his
claim that the union leaders repre
sent a minority of the men.
FOSTER ISSUES STATEMENT.
Pittsburgh, Oct. 2.-William Z.
Foster, secretary treasurer of the
national committee for organizing
iron and steel workers, issued the
following statement before leaving
for Washington last night, in reply
to Judge Gary:
"We are pleased by Judge Gary's
statements before the senate com
mittee investigating the steel strike.
They show, more convincingly than
anything which we could say, that
the head of the United States Steel
f. corporation stands stubbornly for
t autocratic control of industry. He
Ibelieves in a system under which a
small board of directors have abso
lute sway over the conditions of la
a bor in an industry, while the great
o army of workers who are vitally con
5 cerned have nothing to say.
Y "The judges' talk about the dan
11 ger of domination of the steel in
y dustry by trade unions is just a
e smoke screen thrown out to obscure
i, the issue. The workers in the steel
industry are demanding the right of
e collective bargaining in the only
practical way it can be had through
the trade union movement. Judge
Gary is openly and positively refus
h ing them this right. His statement
that the steel corporation is willing
to deal with individual employes,
e smacks of the Eighteenth century.
"In the first place, how can his
s corporation make even a pretense
e of 'hearing complaints' from its 260,
n 000 employes individually? In the
second place, what chance has an in
dividual employe when dealing with
this monster corporation?
"Judge Gary calls the union rep
resentattves of the employes 'rank
outsiders.' This is another' frank ad
mission of discrimination. The Unit
ed States Steel corporation in its
d dealings secures whatever experts it
a chooses to represent it, but it re
fuses to grant its employes the
same right: it denies them the
privilege of hiring skilled represent
atives who are capable of presenting
