A Rotten Job.
WORKINGMEN, STAY AWAY
FROM MIDLAND BRIDGE CO.'S
JOB AT HARRISONBURG, LA.,
UNTIL HUMAN CONDITIONS ARE
The Midland Bridge Co., of Kansas
City, Mo., is building a lock in the
Ouchita river, near Harrisonburg,
La., for the United States govern.
ment. Here are a few of the things
charged against this concern by its
escaped peons: The men say they
were hired in New Orleans by one Lit
ties, said to be labor agent for Mid
land Bridge Co., who promised thi.m
"free transportation," but that the
company deducted transportation
form their wages on payday. That
they were charged $20.00 a month for
board about on a par with that the
Lumber Trust furnished the Grabow
prisoners in its attempt to wreck their
lives. That 50 men were put THREE
BUNKS Ii(CH in a bunkhouse about
30 by 50 feet in size. That they were
forced to buy their own mosquito bars
or do without. That hogs were as
thick as men in and around the bunk
boarding houses. Toilets, practically
inside the bunkhouses, were filthy be
yond description. The work on this
rotten job is described as nothing
short of killing labor, but the wages
are only from 25c to 40c per hour,
which amounts to nothing if the men
are forced to purchase their supplies
from the company. Many men
brought to this hole of the damned
find themselves stranded on payday,
are refused transportation home and,
so, are compelled to beat their way
back or die in the swamps.
Our advice to workingmen is to
stay away from this rotten job until
the I. S. government sees fit to place
it in human hands. We suppose it
is under the supervision of army en
gineers. If it is, it proves what we
have been telling you all along-that
the army gives the working class
nothing but hell. Moral: Join the

Just as we were going to press, we

that the "State of Texas" (?) was

Philadelphia M. T. W.
New York, N. Y., Oct. 9, 1918.-
have returned from Philadelphia,
where I have been helping the boys
there to settle up some difficulties
with our beloved masters. Local No.
8, Branch No. 4, was organized on the
17th of last July, and since then they
have continuously carried on an agi
tation to organize all the men that
were working on the lighter ships,
which carry coal to all the coal yards
in the city (as all the coal yards are
on the river front), and coal all ships
as well. They have been working for
the big sum of twelve dollars per
week, and, naturally, as soon as they
organized 95 per cent. of the slaves
(I have been told), claimed the wage
paid to them was not what it ought to
be. So the goldarned rascals called a
special meeting, and what do you
think-Lo and Behold-rape-cotte
and patate-crude: They elected a
committee at that meeting to draw a.
new wage scale to take place immedi
ately, with a proviso that it should be
increased not less than three dollars
per week. Hoke poke "let them vote"
said the employer. "Nay, nay Paulii.
na," said the workers, on Friday, Oc
tober 3rd, "we will give you until to
morrow noon to come thru with that
three dollars per, or your boats will
not run after 12 G. M. Some of the
bosses said in my presence that the
men were taking advantage of the
short notice, and they (the employ
ers) lad to give in because they were
up a tree. B-U-T, considering what
the men had done, there would never
be a friendly feeling like in the past.
A man by the name of Kelly (who is
an old veteran in the wobblers from
Aberdeen and San Diavolo, or Diego,
or some other foreign name like that)
was serving on the committee. Say,
Hall, by the Holy Rollers, it almost
took the breath out of my-lungs-
when this rough-neck of a working
man told the boss that he would take
his friendly feel-ings in the shape of
three dollars more per week. Why,
Hall, I would have given the price to
purchase the printing press for the
VOICE to have you there. It must
have been the first time that his men
had ever spoken to him according to
Hoyle. lie must have been patriotic
because he turned into the national
colors many times, his jaws got lock
ed, his brows were wet with cold
sweat, and his eyes lost that lustre of
olden times. The cat jumped on the
desk upsetting the ink bottle, the dog
jumped out of the window, an auto
mobile got all its tires punctured at
the same time, and the trolley got off
-the street trolley wire. All this
was within my sight, and I saw it
myself. Who knows what happened
in the different parts of the earth at
that same time?
Anyhow, out of the seven compan
ies engaged in that kind of work five
came thru on demand. The remain
ing two companies were paralyzed
completely, as not a single boat
moved. After two days of strike the
largest of the two companies holding
out gave in, and I suppose that the re
maining company has given in by this
time. C. L. FILIGNO.
