Wide Struggle Between
Capital and Labor.
The entertainment on Christmas
eve presented by the Finnish work
ers of Butte at their hall at 118
North Wyoming street, proved to be
a big success.
The program of singing by the
children and others. including, the
Finnish chorus, was varied by reci
talions and readings and the dis
tribution of Christmas presents.
Rlefreshllnlts were served con
sisting of coffee, cake, candy, fruit
and smok.cs, after which the sur
prise of the evening was staged, the
curtain raised. revealing a tableau,
symbolizing the world-wide struggle
between capital and labor----a back
ground of prison walls, showing a
class war prisoner looking through
an iron-barred window; in the fore
ground three figures representing
that autocratic trinity of capitalism,
the money-power, the law, and the
prostitute press; beneath their feel
three members of the working class,
-clad in prison garb. Subdued sing
ing in the distance heightened the
effect, making, altogether, a power
ful arraignment of present condl
tions in this country.
The scene changed, the workers
arose, their attitude became menatc
ing, the singing increased in volume;
fear gripped the hearts of the capital

a recumbent. position; previous con

opinion among those who had ob
esrved the trial in Winnipeg was
that the verdict of the jury would
be for acquittal, and following the
placing of the case with the jury,
according to Winnipeg reports, anti
lablorites declined to accept offers
of big odds on wagers.
The closing arguments for the de
felnse was made by Robert Cassidy,
chief counsel for the defense. In
perfecting his pldea to the jury, Cas
sidy depicted the trial of John
IBurns, the ,eelebrated English labor
leader. who was acquitted of the
charge of sedition after he had been
tried for leading a procession of
worlers lhrough the streets of Leon
101on carrying a red flag. lie told tihe
jury that it was up to 1them to de
cide whether the liberty of the work
ers to organize and strike for their
own lrotection was to be recognized.
He declared that Russell was no
ilmore guiilty of sedition than was any
other worlkers who had engaged in
the strike, that he was a forceful
chalracter and a mlember of the
socialist party, which Ihe declared,
displayed no wrong.
C'ity Alderman i. lobinson, one
of the last witnesses, testified that

means of settling labor disputes when

Investigation Brings Forth
Fact That ' `Iit n Fruit"
,d d een in Storage Since
Eggs bought on the-city curb mar
ket for "fresh country ranch eggs"
turned out to be only April storage
eggs from the Fairmount Creamery
A vendor on the market sold'num
erous cases of these eggs as the
freshest selected stock from McAl
lister, Mont., according to the 'evi
dence brought out in Justice Wilkin
son's court Tuesday, And all the
time that prize, selected 'hen fruit,"
straight from the McAllister ranch,
was only "special selected April
storage eggs"---in other words,
candled with care last April and the
most reprehensible eggs thrown out.
It is stated on good authority that
•nany of the eggs displayed on the city
market are of that specially handled
brand from the warehouse. C. P.
Irish of the Fairmont Creamery,
stated that he had sold much stock
to the vendors on,the market.
The ten cases of eggs in question
were purchased at stall 56 on the city
market by R. H. Vinson, a brakeman
on the Great Northern, who thought
he was doing his friends in Great
Falls and elsewhere a great service
by shipping to them genuine ranch
eggs bought in all their pristine fresh
ness direct from the representatives
of the farmers on the Butte city mar
The vendor who sold Vinson the
eggs is said to have assured the pur
chaser that the fastest express trains
bore the eggs to Butte's market; that
the freight trains were entirely too
slow, and hence arrangements h.td
been umade. with a baggage man on
the Milwaukee railroad to . "dead
head" the special choice eggs from
McAllister into Butte.
Although a brakeman, it is said,
that Mr. Vinson remembered too
late that McAllister is several miles
from any railroad. The fact came to
his mind later, after he had received
letters' from his friends in Great
Falls and elsewhere which shook his
faith in the probity of Butte's mer
chants and the quality of Montana
ranch eggs. Mr. Vinson had paid only
$90 on the eggs, however, at the
time of his disillusionment. He still
owed a great deal on them, but re
fused to pay the balance.
The vendor swore out a complaint
against Vinson for procuring eggs un
der false pretenses.
It is stated by the attorney for
Vinson that the latter will counter
with a charge against the vendor for
obtaining money under false pre
tenses. After the. hearing, Justice
Wilkinson state that he would not
render a decision fom' a few days.
