Merryville, La., Sept. 5, 1913.-La
bor Day Barbecue was a grand suc
cess. Everybody enjoyed the speak
ing. Jay Smith and P. Eastman were
the leading speakers of the day. Ev
erybody felt safe.
They had Gus Martin to come down
from D)eRidder and help Kinney Reid
Jr. handle the crowd. Mr. Martin got
so absorbed in Smith's speech that
you could have run an ox wagon over
him. He was heard to say that Smith
made the ablest speech that he ever
The A. M. Lumber Co ran their mill
that day and told the scabs if any of
them went to the barbecue they would
discharge thiem next day. So the
slaves olbeyed their master.
The (;. C. L. joined the "Owls" on
that day, all but Dr. Knight and he
was afraid of his job.
BI. Sharver is a contractor here and
he handles a few carpenters. He said
to Dick Phillip Monday morning:
"l'ncle Dick you have always made
me a good faithful hand and, if you
will work today and not go to the din
ner, I will give you a quart of good
wliskey in addition to your regular
pay. But Uncle Dick couldn't give up
his liberty and manhood for a bait
thrown out by Mr. Sharver. So poor
Dlick was canned Tuesday, but he is
a man and a UNION MAN.
The readers will remember that a
certain concern offered a big reward
for John Walston's scalp. John left
here and went to Orange, Tex., in pur

Lumber Trust Pleads Guilty,
Grabow Massacre Intended From Beginning.
"American Lumberman's" Hoast Proves All Union Ever
Says the "American Lumberman": ei
"Reports from Louisiana say that
the activities of the Brotherhood of tl
Timber Workers, an affiliation of the
Industrial Workers of the World, have
ceased to be a serious menace in the h,
timber and mill operating districts of al
the South, and that there is no longer ti
expectation of the organization being g
a power in the southern lumber belt. tl
Artl.ur Emerson, president of the '5
brotherhood, has departed from the W
Lake Charles (La.) district and his te
departure is looked upon as conclusive in
admission that the riot and bloodshed 11
tactics of the union have proved a fail- B
ure. At present 90 per cent of the ti
leaders and members of the strike gi
movement are working in sawmill pi
centers of southwestern Louisiana, or el
have left that territory entirely. th
A few months ago the American x
Lumberman, in describing fully the h|
organization of the Industrial Work
ers of the World and what it was do
ing in different countries in promoting
discontent among workers and
preaching militarism in their dis
putes with employers, gave warning
that mill operators in the South 1'
MUST USE A "STRONG HAND" IN F'
)EALING WITH THE MOVEMENT I'.
AND THAT IT SHOULD BE SUB- 41
I)UED IN ITS INFANCY. SUCH A II
POLICY WAS ADOPTED AND THE .1.
STRUGG;(;LE BETWEEN EMPLOY- I
ERS ANI) THE EMPLOYEES WHO I
BELON(;ED TO THE UNION RE- '1
SULTEI) IN THE COST OF SEVER
AL LIVES AND MUCH PROPERTY,
but victory is now conceded to the
mill operators. This victory is due in
a large measure to the timely warn
ing of the American Lumberman."
Beyond the caps we have made in
the above article, we t[ink comment
on same hardly necessary. The
"American Lumberman" is the fore
most trade journal of the Lumber
Kings, so when it coolly informs the sl
world that a Grabow riot was intend- S.
ed from the beginning, we guess the
world will know what to think when
this same sheet and all other Lum
ber Trust papers raise the howl of
"anarchy," against the I. W. W. As
a matter of historic fact, the Brother
hood of Timber Workers was NOT
affiliated with the I. W. W. at the
time the "American Lumberman"
gave this "strong hand" advice and
there was much doubt that it would
so affiliate. It was not until Hay
wood and the editor of The Voice at
tended the B. of T. W. convention held
in Alexandria, La., in the Spring of
1911 that it was finally decided by the
Brotherhood. The constitution of
the Brotherhood further, not only
guaranteed the "holy institution of
private property," but it had a pray
er or ritual un nearly every page, yet
this did not keep the Christian Lum
her Kings from using, the "strong
hand" on it from the very beginning
