THE METAL TRADES' STRIKE.
Now that the Metal T'rades c('ra'ftsmen have volted to call ofl'
heir slrike foi' betlier w'ages and conditions, the editorial iros
titutes ierfor'ming on the ket press have engaged in a laIbored
andl futile effort to convince the lpblic that the men involved
voted on Ihiree occasions. iot accordlinii to their own best ,judg
ment, hut according to the dictates of some mythical agitlatrs.
The Ipublic by this time is suffictieiently inf'ormed not to be
misled by the yawpiilgs and vaplor'inr's of these coyotes of the
courlesan press. The public has long been aware that tlhese
parasites have not the welfare of those who do honest toil al
heart. nor' the piosperity of those who consitlute the hulk of
this conulunily; the ipublic knows. and the men involved inl the
slrike know, lhat every word writ ten by these denatured bipeds
of the pervert newspaper fraternity has for its sole object the
swelling of the blood-stained profits of the non-resident mil
]ionaire-profits which, in this community, have been made at
the expense of thousands of men, broken in health, and other
thousands undler the sod on the flat, whose lives were prema
turely ended by the insatliable greedl of 'Wall street money mon
The strike was lost-in the ordinary acceptance of that
term-but no strike is ever entirely lost when the lessons of the
strike are heeded. And no strike is ever settlled until it is set
Iled righitly. And that is the case with'respect to the Metal -
The men go back to work l wiih their just. demands unsatis
flied; they return to their toil with a sense of wrong done them,
with a knowledge of injustice meted out to them. The sore
spot will rankle: the lesson of the strike will be heeded; Ihe
defects in organization will be corrected and the mistakes in
management will not repeat themselves when the workers of
this camp set out to correct a conditiol whereby a few New
York milliornires and a few hundllred parasitical perverts in
Butte are the only ones who do int daily live in dread of pov
ertly and starvation.
The strike was lost. Mlr. Cornelins F. Kelley, from his head
quarters in \VWall str'eet. sent what he termed his "final word"
to the slaves who provide the comforts for him and his breed.
But Mir. Kelley is mistaken. The final word will be spoken
when lac or. like captlital. realizes, and acts upon the realization,
that there is no class distinctiion among the toilers, no aristoc
racy of labor.
Lalbor' is learlnitg in Butte, as elsewhere, and 'wheIn the
workers decidteto emulate the example of capital and present
a united firont, the final word will bhe said by labor.
In the meantime, the money monarchs may issue ultima
tns, thlie pr'ess prostitutes may spill thleir spume on reams of
paper', but they will have to coime to their gruel---sooner or
\ilth reslpe(t to the local strike--all should remember thaI
olie swailowV does Init nuIlke a suunlulel'.
THAT GARBAGE DEAL. r,
Mr. Kelly, the 0,nly bidder f'or the garbage contractl, at the
council meeting last night, it will he recalled, is the same lMr. il
Kelly who last winter stated at a meeting of the city council
that s ome it or ,i5" cities were waiting for him to come along h
anid lake care of their garbage problem, and that he wished h
they (the couniicil) \\would settle the maittler one way or tihe
oilier. Mri. Kelly said, in effeet, that it made no differencle to I
hinm he merely wanted to do the people ,' Iutle ia favor.
In view of tlhis attitudie .o Mr. Kellyv at that time, many tax
payers are woiidering w\\y Kelly is still hanging around, and11
why it is that Mr. Kelly cani afford to waste his alleged valuable
time in sojourning inl tButte for the pnrlpose of securing a con
tinac which is so aunattract ive that iino one. else bids on it.
Many taxpayers suspecl there is a "iigger in t lhe woodpilec
in the matter of this proposed garbage deal, and they have ex
pressed their intention of attending next \Wednesday night's|º
council meeting to protect their interests.
The Bullelin has not studied the new garbage contrael, but
contractors who live in the city and have the equipmentl to
handle the garbage, claim the contract is so drawn that only
Mr. Kelly canl afford to bid on it.
At any rate, the whole proceeding in this matter of dispos
ing of i utte's garbage. from the time it first was brought up I
last winter up to the present time, has a suspicious look.
Just why the city itself. or some of the local contractors, are
unable to handle the garbage is nit clear, and this fact in it
self is sufficient grounds to put the taxpayers on their guard.
Again, it might. help clarify the situation if some of those city
officials favoring Mr. Kelly would inform the public as to whoi
is backing this 'garbage king," as there are stories going the I
rounds that Mr. Kelly himself is not possessed of any of the
stuff that talks.
More light is needed.
THE FARGO BANK CASE.
An order by the supreme c ourt of North Dakota removing
the receiver plut in charge of the Scalidinavian-American bank
at Fargo, is the second act iii a struggle which has aroused
the northwest. The turncoat state officials who happen to
be members of the state banking board seized on certain oppor
tunities to make a raid on the Fargo bank. which has been
friendly to the farmers. Most important of the seized oppor
tunities was the fact that the state official who would have

Notice to Advertisers
Beginning Nov. 1, 1919, the advertising rates of the
Butte Daily Bulletin will be increased about 40 per cent.
Beginning today no new contracts will be entered Into
at the old rate.
The new rates are not elastic.
The new rate cards will be !ready Oct. 25.
Advertising men will be received at the office between
the hours of 9:30 and 11:30 A. M.
The new rates are not only justified, but a considerably
higher rate would be in accord with the actual paid-up

The onlly basis for the raid lies ini the foolish claim that

' co-operative nature have been financed by such means for
I' years elernlse of the scarcity of ready money on the farms.
The 'very Itlvltcoalts who question them were elected to office
\twith campaign iullnds raised .by this means. The questioning
of them is a blow at every farmer enterprise in the northwest.

MILES CITY AFFAIRS.
Miles City, Oct. 15, 1919.
The loyal American citizens of
Miles City have been very much
amused lately at the repeated whin
ing of the Miles City daily paper:
over the conduct of the people .'o
Ardmore, Okla., in refusing to let
Senator Reed speak in -their city
against the League of Nations. The
editor of the Star is 'very indighant
at this suppression of the constitu
tion of the United States, and the
suppression of free speech:
