THE LUMBERJACK
"AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL"

Capitalists Scared Crazy
Chicago, Ills., Jany. 23rd, 1913.
Mr. Jay Smith
Alexandria, La.
Authorities in Ta'ipa, Florid:r, arrested and imprisoned I. W. W. members
in Campaign to dcstr ,y organization. Give publicity.
VINCENT ST. JOHN, G. S. T.
The above dispa:tch was received just as we were going to press, but we
stopped the presses to get it in and to call on all rebels to do all in their power
for these outraged fellow workers. The authorities of Tampa are as shameless
a gang as ever served the murderous Southern Oligarchy and all working men
should rise against them and their brutal masters, the Spanish Buccaneers who
own the Cigar Fatctories of the accursed City of Tampa, and compel them to
take their gorilla hands off labor's throat. DO IT NOW, TODAY!
WORKMEN, UNITE!
The dispatch brings good news as well as bald, for it :shows that, despite all
their guns and prisons, the lid of peonage is cracking in all directions, North
South, East and West! Unite! and throw it on the scrap pile history! The day
is dawning, the voice of Freedom calls you, the New Age, the age of labor, is at
hand! Arise, O Clans of Toil!
TO THE RESCUE! ON TO TAMPA!

TO ALL THE CLANS OF TOIL
When Aleander of Macedonia entered Aisa he entered It with the Greelan
phalanx. A phalanx was a clan in battle array, its members were al brethea
in the clan and all the classese were brothers in the tribe, so the army of Al
exander marched as ne always and always conquered. Whether attacking
being attacked, the Macedoslan army always presented a solid foat. It
faced its foemen thus: Came the first phalanx on the line, then back of it an-.
other and and another and another and another, ten and sihtee ranks deep,
brother backing brother, row on row of serried spear-heads that were never
beaten down or broken thrn. That army was never whipped. It conquered
all the then known world.
WHY?
Solidarity is the magic word explaining all this wondrous army's might
Never was a single regiment allowed to fight the foe alone. Ivery member of
that army, without orders, without appeals, upheld the Macedoia cease. These
soldiers neither asked nor expected Alexander to do it all. Zach man acted
as his own Moses, the army as one, phalanx hack of phalanx, and conquered
the World by sheer might of Solidarity.
ARMY OF TOIL.
Heed you now the Macedonian lesson Stand not with folded arms and
let the Clan at Merryville be beaten down All the boys there ask of you is
to feed their wives and children while they are on the battle line of labor. Do
your duty, and do it NOW, TODAY!
Send all funds and provisions to Chas. Cline, Secretary, Merryville, Lou
isiana.
