By L. P. Straube, President
Stereotypers Union No. 4.
Venomous reptiles, by a wise
provision of nature, are rendered
sluggish in their movements
when super charged with poison.
It seems that this same- law is
operative in the daily newspaper
field, if the, present circulation
difficulties of the Chicago Exam
iner and its spleenetic attack by
proxy upon George L. Berry,
president of the I. Pc P. and A- U.
is takenas a comparison.
Strange how silent the;Exam-
t jner is about the life history of its
claimed publisher, Andrew M.
Lawrence, and his reputed enforc
ed departure from the Pacific L
coast and how ready it seems ie
lend itself to the besmirching of
the character of those sufficient
ly courageous to invite the enm
ity of a hypocritacl press that
publicly preaches peace on earth ,
good will to men and and pri-,'
vately establishes a hell 6n earth
in which good will is dethron
ed and typanny in its worst form
As for the members of the I. P.
P. and A. U. so religiously given
prominence by the Examiner as f
ther eal authors of the slanderous
statements directed against Pres
ident Bery, the words of. the
Christ in his death 'agony occur
to Labor's mind with a new. sig
"Oh! Lord forgive them, for
they know not what they do. '
Its is a well known fact that
the men who fight the battles for
labor, who make enemies of cap
italists and corporations by what
they do and say, have trials
enough to encounter without .feel
ing that they must also be on
their guard against enemies-in the
Very ranks of labor who ought to
be their friends and supporters.
But, while it is discouraging to
know that there are creatures so
dispicable as to seek to blight the
good work of loyal men, it must
never be forgotten that jthe sound
sense and good judgment of the
people can be relied upon to scprn
the work of gossips ancL render
futile the efforts of the falsifier,
who would willingly wreck every
hope of labor's future, that in the
"ruins they might find some petty,
hate, or malice gratified.
