TO ATTORNEY GENERAL PAIMEIR,
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE,
WASHINGTON, D. C.
Dear Sir: Montana is now andt has been since the beginning of
the world Vwar in the grasp of : groulp of profiteering wholesale andll
retail dealers in foodlstuffs and other necessities, incltling coal. Prices
have been arbilrarily advanced lby thie dealers to thlie stage where the
Incomes of the working people are inadequate to permit of the pur
chase of sufficient necessities to keep hotly 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 rive us relief, anti we now look to your office to collo
to our assistance.
As your United States district attorney for Montana you have hE. C.
Day, a self-confessed bribe-taker and a notorious friend of the inter
ests which are now guilty of profiteering. Mr. I)ay 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 Ir. D)ay, 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 plunderlc untl in this state be ended, inlmedialte
ly discharge E. C. Day from the office of United States attorney for
the district of Montana and replace hinl with sonie one of integrity who
will follow your orders and the wishes of the people and prosecute the
food hoarders and the profiteers.

fight for better conditions and living

by women in western mining camps.
Their slogan has been. "We cannot
meet a $6 food bill with a $5 wage."
The Western Federation of Min
ers and other "fly-by-night" organi
zations have attempted to organize
the strikers and get the men back to
work with "closed shop" agreements
providing for wages and working
conditions less than those in the
original demands, but all such efforts
have proven fruitless and the men
have declared time after time in their
mass meetings that they would stand

strikers have been served with an in
I junction restraining them from hold
ing mass meetings.
This. in brief, is a history of the
Tonopah strike from its beginning
down to the present time and a por
trayal of its causes and the events
leading up to the walkout. The
Sstruggle is still on. What the out
come will be no one can say with any
degree of certainty.
If these rebel men and women are
driven back on the job without hay

will mean that they will only bide
their time and strike again with
more force than they had when they
went out last August. They have
gained in knowledge which is power
and they have the satisfaction of
knowing that they have driven the
tin horns and other birds of prey out
of Tonopah and made that camp
clan for the first time in its history.
