Little book, I wonder if I am giving

ISSUE AN APPEAL LETTER IN
JOE HILLSTROM CASE
An appeal to all labor organiza
tions to print and distribute the fol
lowing, open letter to the board of
pardons of Utah has been made by
the I. W. W. It is on the case of Joe
Hillstrom, sentenced to be shot
"Gentlemen: Assuming that your
reasons for denying public clemency
to Joseph Hilstrom are correctly set
forth in the public press and for the
purpose of showing that they are not
founded on either the law or facts in
the case, but are .intended to and do
delude and decieve the public, I re
spectfully make the offer to publibly
discuss the facts at any time, in any
city in the United States, with any
member of your board, or all of
them; such discussion to be before H
the date assigned, for his execution.
"I make this request to afford an
opportunity to refute, as I feel I can,
among other things, the false, wick
ed and cowardly aspersion on his
character that Hillstrom has here
tofore committed any crime or that
he has now, or ever has had, any
criminal record now for the first
time so bravely urged as a sufficient
justification for taking his life.
"This matter, as you all must re
alize, is one now of national if not
not international importance, and
has excited intense interest from
New York to San Francisco; and I
would be, as the attorney for this
condemned man, of 'meaner stuff
than men are made of if I did not, in
the brief time of life now allotted
him, challenge you and each of you
to the proofs!
"I am only anxious and determined
that if Hillstrom is judicially mur
dered, the people of this country
the great jury to whom we must all
go at last shall fully understand
just where rests the full measure of
responsibility for 'the deep damna
tion of his taking off.'
"Any communication will reach
me addressed to this city. Very re
spectfully. 0. N. Hilton, Denver
IT IS TO WEEP SOCIETY'S COWS
HAVE CASHED IN
Aristocratic Lake Bluff is minus
thirty hogs! The "sassiety" cows are
gone! And all is peace and quiet
Among the north shore nobility
they whisper it hoarsely:
"Mrs. Durand's cows are dead!
Where will we get our society milk?"
Yep. The long struggle to keep
Lake Bluff's socially elect cows from
being killed is over. The battle which
engaged two courts, involved Chicago
packers in a scandle, caused indict
ment of a state official, in which a
sheriff, many guns and a woman's
tongue figured, is over.
Mrs. Scott Durand ostracized i. e.,
quarantined her trick cows when
the foot and mouth disease first hit
the state. They staged in seclusion
while the disease was stamped out of
other counties and finally remained
the only infested herd in Illinois.
Enter sheriff with gun. Blooey
blooey. No more Bociety milk.
WOMEN TRIM THE B. & 0.
Knowing how the residents oppos
ed, the B. & 0. railroad tried to lay
a spur on W. 57th st across Oakley
and Fairmount avs. at night. The
women of the neighborhood arose
from their sleep at the first crack of
a sledge on a spike and, clad in lit
tle more that nighties, went into at
tack upon the workers with pots of
boiling water. Three nights they bat
tled, each time with victory for the
women. Now peace nas come by an
order from city council threatening
railroad leaders with arrest unless
