UNION MEN ACCUSE TRUST
PRESS OF UNFAIRNESS
The loop papers are lined up solid
ly against labor in the controversy
with the building trades employers.
They are grinding an axe the axe
of Big Business uT-the hopes that
Big Business will recognize their
faithful service by casting them a few
crumbs of advertising.
That they are serving well their
master is shown by the fact that
there has not been a defalcation in
the ranks of trust dailies in their at
tack on labor and their glorification
of Big Business. It is proven by the
fact that when one sheet prints an
unfair, untrue story about the unions
that the others papers all make haste
to say likewise.
John Metz, president carpenters'
district council: "The loop press has
been unfair all through. By this time
all working men must have learned
that they cannot get a square deal
from the trust papers. I would like
to see every union man in Chicago
get behind The Day Book. I believe
The Day Book will benefit Chicago
unionism more than a labor daily
Daniel Galvin, Secretary of Car
penters' District Council: "They are
lying about us in every issue, doing
everything to turn public opinion
against the union man. Anyway, the
Tribune had to swallow some of its
Charles Fry, Business Agent Ma
chinists: "Let the trust press rave.
It is dead against us and it knows we
know it. But we know it has to
pander to the ones who control its
body and soul"
Louis Toule, President White City
Council Lathers: "We don't expect
a square deal from the loop dailies.
If they told the truth about a labor
condition it would hurt the feelings
of Big Business and their advertising
column source of revenue would suf
fer. The conduct toward us of the
Tribune has been especially unfair
Anton Sommers, Vice President
German Local 1784, Carpenters,
Chairman Carpenters' Report Com
mittee: "There is one effective way
for working men to combat the evil
of the scab dailies of the loop re
fuse to buy them. I never buy a Chi
cago daily except The Day Book and
my German-paper. Since the strike
my official position has forced me to
read the trust papers. Speaking of
the carpenters' strike, they have been
a solid pack of lies from column to
column, all of them. No self-respecting
working man should spend P
penny for one of these filthy sheets."
