I cannot say what is the truth of

The United Mine Workers have
stretched0out thhand of real broth
erhood to the striking machinists of
the Goodman Manufacturing Com- .
The machinists have been on strike
against the Goodman plant since
July 23, 191-2. Down in the mines of
Southern Illinois the members of the
United Mine Workers have been forc
ed to work with machinery and tools
made by the Goodman Company
since that time. N '
They were tied up by an agreement
which they had tb live up to until its
expiration on March 31 of this year.
Before that date they could give
nothing but financial aid to the strik
ing machinists. '
But on March 19 of this year the
7th sub-district of the 12th district
of the mine workers held its annual
convention and resolutions were
unanimously passed by which then
members agreed that after the ex-'
piration of then contract with the
mine owners they- would refuse to
handle any implements .made by the
strikebreakers at the Goodman plant.
They have Icept itheir word.
