things mustN have occurred to
Willie, you'll never be able "to
v prove it by his newspapers.
No one can quarrel with WilHe
for being with the BRITISH
miners. Their demands are just.
But it's funny Willie couldn't
forget about the BRITISH min
ers and theirwrqngs long eriough
to pass out a. iew1 remarks about
AMERICAN- miners tift their
wrongs. . .
f And it's iunhy that'tf& reader,
of Hearst's- newspapers . ever
would havef known thefe" ".was a
strike of textile "workef saaf Law
rence, Mass., at the begfffning of
the year Until the. brutalities of
the mill-owned soldiery and go
lice there, became so great that
Congress took the matter jip, and
there was such a holler in Con
gress about Lawrence conditions
that ALL the newspapers just
had to take notice of it, despite
the Wool Trust ads.
And it's funny that thefeisn't
any news worth, talking about in
the Hearst newspapers just now
about the strike of the textile
workers of New Jersey, and that
there was nothing about the vic
tory of the textile workers at Bed
It must be real easy for Hearst
to work up -a. lot of indignation
about the workingman, other
wise he couldn't write such excit
ing editorial aboot the British
6r the Chinese, or the some other
workingmen that Eve on the oth
er side of the world where the
advertising pickings arent any
about, and" pay a lot more atten
tion to WilnVs wails about the
the plight of British strikers, if
he'd get down to cases about the
American workers and their trou
bles just once in a while-
Of course the newspapers
would like to have people think:
thy are progressives, buf you
can tell about how progressive
the Republican dailies of Chicago
are when you see how little atten
tion they pay, in their news- col
umns., to the progressives under
the leadership of Merriam and N
These -progressive Republicans
are actually in' favor of the initia
tive, referendum and recall and
any othex governmental measures
'that wilt-give, the people the pow
er to run-their &wn government
But that isp't what Big Business
wants. And the Chicago dailies
play mighty close to Big Business-.
LaFollette and Wilson are de
cidedly the most progressive of
the presidential candidates, one
Of them a Republican and the Qth
er a Democrat. But they don't
get much notice in the papers, and
no support at all.
It would be a joke on the pa
pers if Jones, the. Progressive,
snonld happen to carry Chicago
as Merriam did.
