SEPTEMBER MORN'S RIVAL
Editor Day Book:
How is it that Mr. Fractman was
arrested for displaying a picture call
ed a rival to September Morn, and
the Chicago American will advertise
it more in one issue than all the art
galleries in Chicago would in years
to come? How is it The American
can display such a picture and not be
brought to account for same?

TO THE EDITOR:
The strike at the Goodman Mfg.
Co,, 434 S, Halted Street, is stffl
on, since July 3, 1912. It is causing
much trouble and embarrassment to
the mining officials throughout the
states where the Goodman machines
have been in general use. In several
places the miners have refused to use
the machinery that has been made
by the scabs who have taken the
places of union men.
Six of our men were discharged
last July for speaking in behalf of the
union. A committee was appointed
to see Mr. Goodman, pleading with
him to reinstate the six men he dis
charged. He deliberately refused to
place them back in his shop. The
rest of the union men who walked
out with the brothers, Goodman re
fused to reinstate, and since that
time many arrests have been made.
Our brothers had to lay in .jail for
asking for nothing but what should
belong to every working man, a right
to belong to his union.
A week after the strike was called
Mr. Goodman appealed to the Manu
facturers' Association to furnish
him men to take our places. When
they apply for a job at this scab shop
they hand them a metal trades' em
ployment card, when they are ques
tioned if they belong to any union.
If you look good to them you will
receive a card to go back and hold
a job in this scab factory, which will
hold a black mark against you as
long as you live.
