a generous allowance on me and

Strange, isn't it, that when a rich

he is giving that which "means most

that Will should not be free, while
I lived, to go his own sweet way.

KELLY'S ARMY ON THE WAY
San Francisco, Cal., Ityarch 4. The
faction of the unemployed here head
ed by "General" Charles Kelly. 1,500
men, left here this afternoon and
formally opened the "on to Washing
ton" movement, which is expected to
end when thousands of 'idle men
march into the national capital.
Before starting Kelly issued the
following statement , of the plan of
"We will spend the night in Oak
land and may remain there for a
week. Then we will move to Ogden,
Utah, via Sacramento. We are going
to leave despite the fact that the men
axe not equipped for a long march.
There are not enough tents, blankets
or cooking utensils, and the clothing
of the marchers is thin and ragged.
I doubt if there is one stout pair of
shoes in the camp. But the men are

mer?" ED ANDiH EN RY BARRETT BOUND
FOR JOLIET PEN
. Ed Barrett, Hearst's principal slug
ger during the newspaper strike, is
going to the Joliet penitentiary. He
and his brother, Henry Barrett, were
taken to the county jail last night
after it was announced that the State
Supreme Court had upheld their con
viction for the slaying of Henry Mas
terson. Cook county still has a few debts
to settle with Ed Barrett. The murder
of Frank Witt, street car conductor,
is still chalked upon the records
against Ed and his brother Charley,
and Arthur Friedman.
Witt was shot down in his street
car during the newspaper strike two
years ago. But three Hearst strike
breakers have never teen brought to
trial on that charge. t
The Witt case is- probably closed
now. And it is probable that had not
the killing of Masterson occurred Ed
would be still a Hearst employe like
his brother Charley.
But during a saloon fight last April
Barrett and his younger brother,
Henry, killed Masterson. The News
paper Publishers' Association had
nothing to do with that case. There
was no chance of any unpleasant
truths coming out during the trial.
So Ed Barrett was let fight the case
the best way he. knew how.
For killing Masferson they receiv
ed sentences of from one to four
teen years. (
The man who gets something for
nothing is generally surprised to find
that it is worth just about what lie
