Comment in Chicago on life sen
tence of John R. Lawson in Colorado:
Frank P. Walsh, chairman U. S. in
dustrial com'n: "Lawson's crime was
defiance of the Rockefellers. He was
eight miles from the scene at the
time of the murder for which he is
sentenced. It is a mockery of justice,
a threat to the republic."
Ed Nockels, sec'y Chicago Federa
ion of Labor: "A Rockefeller lawyer
especially appointed to try strike
cases as a judge, did the dirty work.
American justice bah!"
John C. Kennedy, alderman-of 27th
ward: "This is the stuff that breeds
violence. It breaks the faith of men
in peaceful methods."
W. D. Haywood, sec'y I. W. W.:
"United Mine Workers ought to call
a nation-wide general strike. No coal
to the Unfted States till the prison
doors open for Lawson."
