YES, UNCLE SAM IS PROGRESSING SOME
This old country of ours sure is progressing some, when public
prosecutors have the nerve to indict the head of the wool trust, and
to expose the millionaire trust magnates who planted dynamite in
Lawrence in order to make the people believe the striking workmen
were dangerous dynamiters.

boss corruptionist of the Standard Oil trust, and the man who
