Head in ofdeY to drive them into subjection and make them obey
It is the same with the freight handlers, the teamsters or any
others who work. The property of their employers is held more
sacred than, the well-being of men, women and children ; and the law
is on the siae of property.
Life will be sacrificed if need be to protect oroperty. And even
the property of the average citizen will be jeopardized in order to
protect the big property of the rich and powerful.
Yet it was the common people whose support made these pub
lishers rich and powerful. Without circulation among the common
people not one of the trust newspapers" would be worth anything--as
an advertising medium. It is because the people buy these,papers
by the thousands that the big advertisers pay big money to the (paper
ta carry their advertisements into the homes.
But why should the representatives of the people use all the
strength of the people's government against the meh, .women and
children who earn their bread in the sweat of the face?

the legal lights of the Judiciary
Committee can help it. ,
Behind closed doors, the Judi
ciary Committee went through
the documents sent by Taft with
.his special message to the house
The committee, after going
through the papers, agreed with
Taft that the publication of them
would not be "compatible with
, And these papers are the teal
dope. They deal with how
Archbald's "straying frqm the
straight an,d narrow affected his .
judicial decisions, which is what
the people want to know.
Now the Judiciary Committee
is going to fool around with the.
charge that Archbald, while sit
ting as judge in cases in which the
Erie railroad was the defendant,
bought "culm piles' from that
road for $3,000 and turned right
atound and tried to sell them to
the Lackawanna Coal' Company
for $35,-000, which, as everyone
will admit, beats horse-trading. l
But everyone already knows
that Archbald tried, to put that
clever little deal over. What the
people want to know now, is how
that deal and others of the same
sort affected Archbald's judicial
