REMEMBER JUDGE CARTER.
Orrin N. Carter, candidate for judge
of the supreme court, should have the
same lemon handed back to him by
organized labor as well as unorgan
ized labor. He was one of the three
arbiters handed to the street car men
in 1913. I, as a union man and a
voter, have not forgotten it and I
hope that no other union man has.
These sky pilots and hypocrites
such as 0. Nj, Carter should be made
to realize that when they are on an
arbitration board, and some day ex
pect organized labor to support them,
they should do unto others as they
would have the others do unto them
selves, not only arbitrating fairly, but
in their capacity as judges.
The solidarity of labor is in de
mand in this case. One bad turn
deserves another. One for all and all
for one. After his scalp! A Union
POLICE TREATMENT. On the
tenth day of the month I went over
to Arthington and Kedzie avs. to see
a friend. While waiting for him I

After going through every pocket he

our loved ones to avenge the deaths
of the few who were foolish enough
to sail on the Lusitania. v
It seems to me in time of war it
was a perfectly legitimate thing for
the Germans to blow up a ship car
rying contraband of war. England
was warned. United States was
warned as a nation. Also the people
were warned. Was it not a thing to
be expected that England would
have patrol boats to meet the Lusita
nia and protect her passengers?
Why did these people sail under an
English flag when they could sail un-'
der neutral flags?
Does it not seem that England pur
posely kept patrol boats away in or
der to cause trouble between United
States and Germany?
Shall we lose millions of good, hon
orable men to avenge the deaths of a
few who were willing to take such
a risk? A Woman Reader.

many women nowadays who are de
