NO SECRET MEETING. Since
your paper seems to remain aloof
from the general excitement and hys
teria that is being fomented by the
police through the capitalist press, I
take this opportunity of making the
following statement to the readers of
your publication, to the workers who
realize that they are being duped
continually by the capitalist press.
In several papers the statement
was made that a secret meeting of
anarchists was held at the Workers'
institute to Arrange for a protest
meeting at the West Side auditorium.
This is alie. The Workers' insti
tute does Hot entertain secret meet
ings. That is against the principles
of the institution.
What actually happened was that
a few individuals gathered informally
and openly in our public reception
room in the presence of many peo
ple, who came and went and dis
cussed plans for a public protest
meeting. Anybody else might do the
same. Strangers listened to this dis
cussion. A Tribune reporter was
present. (This seems to be the
source of the information.)
The Workers' institute is one insti
tution that not only advocates free
speech, but practices it as welL This
institution, though espousing the
radical labor cause, is open to all, re
gardless of race, creed, thought or

Wall street corporations. The cor

know that Brandies is the man of the
people, a man who believes the laws
should be made for the benefit of the
The great corporations and capital
ists favor a man regardless of nation
ality, creed or religion as long as he
represents them and not the people.
This I believe is the real reason why
Brandiesiis opposed for the supreme

LAW. There are thousands and
thousands of laws on the statute
books, and it takes an army of law
yers and judges to interpret them,
and each does so according to his
own ideas of them; and, as a neces
sary consequence, these interpreta-i
tions conflict with one another.
These same lawyers and judges do
not know 10 per cent of the laws,
and, according to the word of the
law, 'Ignorance of the law excuses
no one." The public is supposed to
know them all or 90 per cent more
than the students and practitioners of
The law is the real cause of the
majority of crimes. The more laws
we have the more criminals we have
and the more it costs the citizens for
enforcements of the law. We can eas
ily see the partiality of the law by
reading the daily papers." One rich
and powerful banker skips off with
most of the bank's money and gets
a year or so in jail, but with the poor
people, oh! how different! If a poor
person steals a loaf .of bread or a bot
tle of milk he gets a longer term than.
