HAYWOOD CALIS LABOR FAKERS
Vancouver, B. C., Feb. 22d, 1913.
Chas. H. Moyer,
President Western Federation of
Miners,
Denver, Colorado.
Sir:
In the offical organ of the Western
Federation of Miners, issue of Feb. 6th,
there appears a statement under the
caption, "A Near View of Bill Hay
wood." The same purports to be from
Adolph Germer. It could only have
h(e,'n written with your connivance and
:ipproval; you know that what he sets
forth as fa,.:ts regarding colections
made by me in behalf of Steve Adams
are contemptible and malicious lies.
You have in the office of Western
Federation of Miners my report of all
colections made and expense account
incident to the same. YOU know that
it was not I that failed of an accounting
and you further know that up to this
time, though nearly five years have
passed, the W. F. of M. has failed to
make an adjustment.
In view of my standing with the
working class I am entitled to a hearing
and a vindication; it is not for you, the
jealous enemy, to condemn me ex-parte.
The Socialist Party and Organized La
bor generally are entitled to know the
truth in connection with these charges,
and to this end I demand that a repre
sentative committee be authorized to
make a complete investigation and re
port of my stewardship of the finances
of the Western Federation of Miners-
this investigation to cover the entire
period of my official connection with
the W. F. of M.
You are to name two of a committee
of five, I will name two, who will be in
all ways satisfactory to the Socialist
and the Labor movement, the four
members thus appointed to select the
fifth member of said committee.
This committee to have free access to
all documents, papers, books, minutes
and files of the organization.
You must agree to this investigation
or stand branded of guilt worse than
that of which you would convict me.
WM. D. HAYWOOD.
