SWITHOUT FAIL FOR THE
MEN WHO ARE IN JAIL
Hundreds of workers are literally rotting in the jails of this country
because of their activiiy in the cause of Labor. Many of these victims
of the world-wide class war are awvating trial-and have been waiting
for many weary months for the speedy trial guaranteed them by the
United Slates Constitution. Others were tried and sentenced to terms
ranging from one to twenty years during the period of war hysteria,
tndl appeals in their cases are now being taken from King Capital drunk
to Ki.ng Capital sober.
Some of the prisoners have escaped by death, others are dying, many
have contracte(l tuberculosis and other loathsome diseases, andall are
suffering untold agony from close confinement in the fetid atmosphere,
from insanitary and unhealthy surroundings, from poor and insufficient
food; anld from inhuman treatment accorded them by brutalized guards.
Past attempts to secure bail for all of these workers in jail have not
been alttended with great success because of the lack of system. In
dividuals sonuht to secure bail for their personal friends, and failing to
get the necessary amount they returned what had been collected, thus
niakiiig their entire efforts fruitieps. This was the condition facing the
delegates fromn 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 hail and a nalion-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 Hun
dred Thousand Dollars are needed to release those now being held for
tlheir Labor activity.
Sums of Five Dollars and up are accepted as loans, and all cash, Lib
erly ilnds or property is tabulated in triplicate, one copy going to tIhe
person n lmking the loan, another being retained by the Bail and Bond
Conlirittee, 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. Everythihg possible has been done to safeguard
this bail and bond fund, from the selection of the committee to the
choice of the ban:k. A portion of the uind is being set aside to return
loans on demand in case persons who have made them are forced to
leave tile 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,
lihus iniisurii~g fairness to all prisoners. By common consent the men
in W\ichita, 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 country. This bail has nearly all been subscribed, and the
men will be made accredited collectors when released, and their speedy
release will help to sel others at liberty.
No necessitv exists for argument. Yonr duty is clear.' If your ears
are not (leaf to a call from your (:lass, if you feel that an injury to one
is an injury to all. if there burns within you the faintest spark of human
ity. you will see that the men do not remain behind the bars an un

ARE YOU WILLING TO LOAN YOUR DOLLARS TO THEM?
