INNOCENT RUSSIAN WOMAN VICTIM OF U. S.
.BARBAROUS POLICE SYSTEM
Eleanor Speek, Martyr to Uncle
Sam's Cossack Prison Methods.
Los Angeles, Cal. Supposing an
American woman in Russia were to
be arrested, thrown into a foul cell,
dragged before one tribunal after an
other, kept in jail two months with
out any crime being charged against
her, and finally kicked out without
even an apology, . .'
Don't you think' that a terrible
howl-would arise from the U. S. A.?
Don't you believe there would be a
yell for Yankee battleships to bom
bard Odessa? And what a bunch of
spieling there would be about the
savage, despotic Russians.
Yet a Russian woman in America
in Los Angeles was arrested,
thrown into a cell, dragged before
one tribunal after another, kept hv
jail two months without any crime
being charged against her, and finally
kicked out without even an apology.
And we don't hear anything about
Russian battleships sailing to bom
bard New York, nor of the czar or
dering Pres. yilson to kiss the Rus-i
siau. flag. Neither do we hear, any-.)
