Further evidence of how the
multi-millionaire woolen trust
magnates "protect"' their em
ployesin return for suilident pro.
tection to allow them to over
charge 10,000,000 Amerkun con
sumers on every article of cloth
they buy, is revealed in the ar
rest at Lawrenco, Mass., of Will
M. Wood, head of the Woolen
Mr. Wood is charged with plac
ing dynamite in the homes of his
$3, $(iand a week foreign mill
workers in an attempt tn discred
it their cause while they were on
a strike last winter as a protest
against a reduction of wages.
Mr. Wood's arrest is worthy of
the uttontion of every man, wo
man and child in the country who
wears woolens. Because of the
fact that Mr. Wood und his fel
low woolen trurt magnates con
tribute heavily to Republican
campaign funds, Congress has
been in the habit of placing the
tariff on woolens high enough to
keep out all competition, so that
the woolen trust coull be free to
charge any price they desired, up
to the limit of the ability of the
people to pay. The result is that
Americans are paying from thir
ty to one hundred per cent more
for woolen clothing and blankets
than the resident of Great Britain
The story of the career of Mr.
Wood provides a curious para
dox. He is the oppessor of 150,
000 miserable New Englund tex
tile workers, a few years ago he
was one of them. In his youth
he felt the sting of hunger him
self, but now he is pitiless 111 his
thoughts of his employees. He
has grown enormously rich, but
declares that fiom H to $1) a
week is enough for those who la
bor in his mills.
It is said of many captains of
industry that they ure ignorant j
ot the conditions 01 the workmen
who earn their fortunes for thein
that if they knew the distress of
their employees they would seek
to remedy it. Not so with Wood,
lie knows. 'J heir distress he
1 sees. Their cries he hears.
Wood's father was a Portugese
Jew emigrant. He labored in a
cotton mill und died of tubercu
losis a diseaso common to cotton
and wool thinners. The father's
name is believed to have been
AlphoiiHo Lellair or LaVair.
When the woolen mill employ
ces, which a 10 composed of 12
different nationalities, most of
whom cuu not speak in English,
went on a strike, the fathers and
mothers decided to send their
Lubes and little children away to
- friends in other ci tie's in order
that they might not stiller from
hunger during the strike. Mr.
Wood's ngents beat the women,
and tore the little ones from their
mothers' arms when the children
were about to he placed on
trains. Thus did Mr. Wood "pro
tect" his employees.
Are the American people will
ing to continue to contribute to
Wr. Wood by paying more for
shoddy than good woolen cloth
ing sells for in England? Or do
they want the tn rill on woolens
reduced? There is only one
day every two years when tho
consumers have an opportunity
to express themselvess on this
subject. That, day comes on No
