hours in private conference with Gov. Ferris at his home in Big Rapids. So
I could imagine how McNaughton talked about the miners to the governor
of Michigan, a good soul who has been a school teacher all his life, yet
can't find a way to. help the miners and their families in their war with capi
tal up in the northern peninsula.
Annie Clemenc is more of an American in my esteem than the spine
less but well-meaning governor of Michigan. And as manhood goes, she's

I believe Annie Clemenc would make a better governor of Michigan
than Ferris will that is, better for humanity. If she couldn't find law in
-the books to help humanity, she would do it with her bare hands, law or
I have no patience with governors, judges or presidents who won't
move for humanity until they find a law that tells them wha"t they can
legally do. Annie Glemenc isn't afraid to die. Nor is she afraid to laugh
at rotten laws that were made by kept tools of plutocracy to make property
more precious than human life and liberty.
,If Annie Clemenc is in that dirty little jail now, the American flag
would be better off on top of that jail than over some court house Where
she is, ther,e is the love ''of liberty and the courage to fight for it
And I shall not be surprised any day to read that Annie Clemenc has
been murdered by the hired murderers imported by the mine managers from
the slums of New York to help enslave the miners of the copper country.
If she is, it will be because she can find no protection under the Amer
ican flag she carries.
