slihorniemn and Seamen are getting wise to the "Labor
lieutenants'" of the Bosses. They can't head-off
much longer the ONE BIG UNION. I. C. Mo.
Free Ford and Suhr or Let Hop. Rot.
With a singular unanimity, that one instinctively
feels to be inspired, the capitalist papers of this State
have published sicmultaneously during the past week
a paragraph to the effect that the hop-growers of
California are prepared to accept the recommenda..
tions of Dr. Carleton Parker, and so amend condi
tions in the hop-fields during the picking season that
is now rapidly approaching, as to prevent the pos
sibility of another spontaneous outbreak such as took
place on the Durst ranch last August.
The Sacramento Hice, while ascribing all the praise
for this result to l)r. Parker, at the same time naively
admeits that if this remodelling of camps and condi
tions is put into effect, then last year's uprising will
not have we'in in vain, thus confirming, strangely
enough, the statement that H. M. Royce, one of the
attorneys for Ford and Suhr, made before the Court
at Maryaville, whetn Judge McDaniels passed on them
the outrageous sentenslc of life imprisonment, that
"These men, by their work in helping to organize a
iprotest against the intolerable and indecent condi.
tions on the Burst ranch, have done more good for
humanity than if they had lived long and useful
lives in the midst of a peaceful community."
It is a remarkable fact, however, that the recom
Mendations that the hop-growers now signify their
willingness to, accept at the suggestion of Dr. Carle
ton Parker, are essentially the salme as are embodied
in a certain mysterious sticker that has appeared
broadcast in every county in the State, setting forth
the demands of the hop-pickers for the season of
1914. At the head of these is the demand that Ford
and Suhr be granted a new trial at once and dis
distinsed, OR NO 1101'S WILL 1BE PICKED.
Now, while the hop-growers are now expressing
their willingness to the rest of the conditions,
through the intervention only of Dr. Carleton Parker,
the State and Federal investigator, of course,-yet
they have given no sign as to their attitude on the
first and chief of those demands, namely, the release
of Ford and Suhr, still unjustly rotting in the jail
at Marysville.
Soume of them may consider that it is no affair of
theirs, and that as the imatter has still to come up
before the Appellate Court next July, they can have
nothing to say on that particular demand.
But as the same' hop-growers are already entering
into contracts for the disposal 'of this season's crop,
it might be expedient for them to make perfectly
sure that their crops will be picked, by out and out
ac.ceptance of all the demands in the sticker.
Such officials as Governors and Judges of every
d(egree, in this State, as in all others, owe their ap
pointmnents to their economic masters. And it is a
very old proverb that those who pay the piper call
the tune.. The hop barons in this State are strong
enough in importance and influence, to pass the word
along that Ford and Suhr must be released, with the
certainty that their word will be listened to atten
tively.
If they will not do so, then they must be made to
realize, by the action of the working-class, that their
contracts for the disposal of this season's crop are
both premature and vain.
