THESE PESTIFEROUS "REDS."
The latest is an attack otn the federal trade commission be
cause of the alleged employment of socialists anld "reds" in
illvesligationi work by that body. by Senator Watson of JIndiana.
We do not remember of having heard of Senatol Watson
erfoe and suspect that in this we have much in corniminwith
about ninety-seven million inhabitants of this nation; perhaps
hereinI lies the chief reason for the worthy senator's outbreak;

Personally. we are grateful for lhe information made public
by senator front (eorgeadea even if' it was furnished to him
by the packers: we have always had a sneakingl idea that any
governmtental commnittee that gives the people any sort of a
square deal must have a few radicals concealed among its per
As a rule, this type of individual is sit infatlata.ted with the
idea of ridding the world of b1oth political and industrial tyrarn
ny that nothing else matters; they are quite apt. to indignantly
refuse the Proffer of tiloniey otr other comltpenlsation as a reward
for keeping to themselves the result of their investigations.
If Senatorl Watso-n's statemnents are true, they afford a
ready explanation for the puzzling problem of how, with all
the power of the packing trust against it. the federal trade
c'ommnission succeeded in manking public the valuable evidence
conce'rning the nmagiitutile of the packers' operations.
W'e are somewhat at a loss to explain the indignation of our
honorable senators at the thought that socialists and other rad
ical types may have had something to do with tlpreparing the
federal trade commission's case against the food profiteers.
It seems to us that thIlere is nothing incongruous in capitalists
being investigatcd by a few socialists when socialists have been
spied Ultuo by agents of capitalism for maniy moiths without
atli senaito having raised his voice ill protest.
The degree of senatorial indignation would seem to depend

MONARCHISTS AND IMPERIALISTS.
Is there a hidden motive underlying the visits of kings,
queents and princes to our shlutres and the plans that are being
made for ltie entertainment of the swarm of' re presentatives
of tdecadent Eluropeani dynasties?
We think there is; we believe that the American people are
to be given a view of royalty at close range to the accompani
ment of a. barrage of rfavorable publicity fromt the prostitute
press so that when a favorable moiment comes for the restora
tion ot uionalrchy ill Euir olpe. if that favorable inoniciit develops
accordlilig to the plans of the pluntderbunld. no lruotest will arise
from this quarter.

Memories of his activities still linger in Butte and ai'e often

the laboring clkss will only unite
in one big union and stay together
we can control the world. Who i
'the producer and who is the con

capitalists get is what the produce'
gives them and we have been lettint

people were coming to their sense.

LABORI NEWS EXCHANGE.
Editor Butte Bulletin:
In those years when I served a;
a news editor of the paper publisher
by the Western Workers Publishing
society at Astoria. Ore., I had con
tempt for the distorted and falsifier
news served to us by present presr
agencies, specially when some labor
controversy was in question. Tht
labor papers serving labor's inter
eats need necessarily correct new:
about happenings of the world, an(
most important it is that they gel
this about the strikes, etc., as the
capitalist kept press is more that
ever inclined to lie and villify labor':
side in these cases.
Our paper was, of course, depepd.
ient on the press agencies as other
dailies are, but we had, unlike other
FIinni.sh dailies in this country, at
army of amateur correspondents
who often worked without any pay
giving us informations from every
community where Finnish laborer:
were living, thus enabling us th
present to our1 readers true fact:
I which were not given out by pres:
! agencies. These correspondents
elected by socialist locals,: carrlet
out important work, giving their
service to the labor cause.
This helped only in the cases
where mail could have used,.as un
paid 'amateur correspondents wqulc
not take the trouble to wire the
lgaper r:ews which was not very easy
to get.. Continued work on th.
Taper gave me a firm belief that
labor papers, although they are sc
few at present, could be helper
!much, if they only would -organize
a mutupl news exchange. Finnisi
workers already have three dailies
to join in it, and including Englist
labor papers, as the New York Call
.!rhe Seattle Union-Record, the Butt.
Bulletin and some others we may
have 10 or more dailies to carry oul
the ochemrn for labor's benefit. The
local offices of such an exchang<
can be attached to offices of laboe
papers, and if each local office ther
slhoul.l communicate all importanl
mews ;o the other labor papers, the
service would help greatly. Or
course, such a news exchange can
rot fulfill all of the wire service
needed by daily papers, but it would
be valuable in the cases of strikes
etc., when other press agencies cli'
culate false reports.
Undoubtedly labor unions will bu
able to help in this labor news ex
change, sending the news concern
ing their labor troubles. Further
in this work amateur reporters could
be educated to send only important
news and present them in short.
.Jnappy style; Representatives of
the Finnish Workers Publishing so
cleties will meet this month in Cti.
cago. If English daily papers are
willing to communicate about this
matter to these people, it is an op
porturity to push organization of
!such a news service.
Yours for labor's cause.
2409 North Halsted street,
I know I promised not to bother
you any more, but I could not help
smiling and wanting to smile with
the rest of the readers of the Bul
letin when I read Dr. W. S. Swank's
letter from Miles City.
Will say to Brother Swank that
the Miles City papers are not the
only ones that are in disagreement
with the people..
The people of Butte started the
Bulletin because the' Miner was not
a people's paper;, the farmers of Gal
latin county take the Bulletin be
cause the -Bozeman papers are not
what they want; the people of Liv
ingston take the Bulletin for the
same reason. And why not? These
papers are not owned by the people.
Now, the people have decided to
have a say in things and in order to
do so they must hive organs through
which to speak.
We must have newspapers of our
own, to fight our battles in the news
When Miles City. men prevented
W. C. Glynn from speaking there
they made a mistake. Had W. C.
Glynn spoken a few would have
heard him, but, as it resulted, the
whole state was disgusted that a few
had thwarted the will of the people.
Let us not waste time and effort
on politicians' and capitalist papers,
unless we can buy them, as that is
the only language they know.
Let us farmers and laborers vote
and work together to the end that
we form a solid front and run our

FAMOUS WOMEN I
From comparative obscurity to be
coming the toast of the town! From
waiting on lady boarders to having
dukes lay their coronets at your fee:.
This was Elizabeth Chudleigh's fate.
I "Fate;" for she owed her frightful
t end to hei'self. "Know thyself, con
I que: tlius6Lf." Elizabeth '.Cudleigh
did neither. Born in 1720, she was
the daughter of the impoverished
Colonel Chudleigh. The colonel died
and the mother had to take 'boarders.
Elizabeth's striking appearance,
charm of manner, contagious flow of
spirits, attracted the attention of the
Earl of Bath when she was on a
visit to a rich aunt. The earl 'had
her appointed maid of honor to the
Princess'of Wales. The young Duke,
of. Hamilton sued.for, herhand. She
promised fidelity tb' him ,in his ab
sence abroaid, and while he' was away
married,. secretly, the heir of the
Earl of Bristol, 'Hon. Augustus Her
vey. He was ordered to sea. Ham
ilton returned. Enraged at her in
fidelity he married one of the en
chanting Miss. Gunnings. Elizabeth
threw herself into the dissipation of
the court life; destroyed her mar
riage certificate and the register in
the church; married, the old Duke of
Kingston and was,, by Hervey, sum
moned to the bar of Westminster-to
plead guilty. She escaped being
branded with a hot iron only on ac
count of her titled connections. She
retired to the continent,, a ruined
woman, to be pointed at amid the
garish lights of foreign courts.
