M'NANARA CASE MAY ELECT A SOCIALIST

EFFORTS OF BUSINESS INTERESTS TO DISCREDIT LABOR

AND SOCIALISTS INTO ONE VOTING GROUP.
. LOS ANGELES, May 23.— arrest and trial of John J. Mc-
Namara may elect a socialist as the next mayor of Los Angeles.
This is possible, if not probable, not on the consideration of
the guilt or innocence of the labor official charged with murder in
connection with the Los Angeles explosion, but on account of the
fact that "Big Business" which rules the city under the guise of a
reform administration, has attempted from the time of the McNa
mara arrest, and doubtless will attempt throughout the course of
the trial to put the McNamara case ln the light of a labor case, to
use it as a moans of discrediting labor, as a weapon In its war for
: the "open shop." . :
This fall a city election Is to be
held. Injected into that election,
beside the trial of the McNamara
brothers, will be the trial by the
public of the present so called "re
Nearly three years ago Los An
geles ousted a democratic ma
chine government. Then the peo
ple elected Geo. Alexander and a
reform council. Things went along
nicely until there came a fight be
tween the toilers and big business.
Then the reform crowd - showed
where It stood. The "reformers"
worked hand in glove with the
business interests in the Mer
chants' and Manufacturers' associ
ation and kicked the workers into
jail by means of a drastic antl
picketing law under which 306
union men were arrested. This
law was drafted with the assist
ance of Earl Rogers, a lawyer,
representing the Merchants' and
Manufacturers' association. After
a series of petty prosecutions, the
working men turned when big
business tried to fasten the de
struction of the Times upon union
labor. : • •
Woe! Woe! There's Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth
in Mogadore-'Cause, Mastodon Brass Band's Busted

MOGADORE, (May —Well,
the Mogadore, Mastadon Brass
Band's busted. You see, they got
up a tri-county Nights of Pythias

It took a heap o' searchin to

the rear ranks deep nuff, you'd
find some who didn't know hall
as much about Nights of Pythias
as they do about nights of penny

they got into their 'uniforms, spe

Of course, the Mastaton Brass

sowed the seed of remorse. Ebe

Ebenezer was big enough for
drum major all right! But stupid
and clumsy? Say, I've seen Bb
walking down a perfectly level,
smooth road, atch one foot be
hind the other and pitch head
first Into a ditch many a time.
But they coached Ebenezer faith
ful and even got him doing a
tew stunts with his drum major
baton, so that when conclav time
come, pretty near all Mogadore
went down to Akron and took the
train for Seville to see old Moga

TACOMA, WASHINGTON^"^TUESDAY, MAY 23, 1911.
Now the tollers of the city to a
man have banded together and are
working for socialism. Already
they have chosen their representa
tive and are lining up for the com
ing battle. The socialist candi
date is Job Harrlman. He once
ran for vice-president of the Unit
ed States with Eugene V. Debs,
and for years has been fighting
for organized labor. Harrlman ls
one of the attorneys " for the Mc-
Namara brothers. Explaining the
effect the trial of the McNamars
and the persecution of the work
ing class by the so-called reform
ers will have on the future poll-
tics of the city, Harrlman cays:
"Before the fight came up the
socialists and working voters
were not united. The action of
the present administration work
ing with the business interests to
impede the progress of the strike,
has united socialists and workers
In one voting group. Have the so
cialists a chance of election? Well

went off fine, too, at first. Eben

swung his 25-lb baton, the boys
marched and wheeled splendid at
every order and there wasn't no
band that had played louder than
our Mastadns did. Gee! we could
almost drink out of that lovln'
cup already, when some of the
smart guys what was Judgln' the

Senators Say the Fight
For President pro tern,
Is to Go On to a Finish
THE OLD GUARD WILL NOT YIELD ON GALLINGEn AND THE
PROGRESSIVES WON'T STAND FOR HIS ELECTION.
BY GILSON GARDNER
WASHINGTON, May 2»..—"T here will be no president pro
tempore in the senate. We won't take down Galllnger as a candidate
and we won't name any other candidate. If Galllnger can't be elect
ed there won't be any election."
So spoke Senator Reed Smoot in rather heated fashion when
asked by your correspondent what the tory senators proposed to do.
Sector LaFollette was equally positive that the progressives
never would vote for Galllnger.
"If the senate never has another president pro tern," said the
senator from Wisconsin, "we will go on fighting against Galllnger and
for some progressive. What might happen if the frrlends of Gallln
ger put up a less objectionable man remains to be seen."
The situation is unique. For the first time in its history the
senate will be without a president pro tern, and for the first time In
its history, a nominal party majority finds itself Impotent.
Vice-President Sherman will have to stay on the Job. The pres
ident pro tern is elected to preside in the absence of the vice-presi
dent. Frequently of late the presiding officer has been called upon
to cast a deciding vote. Sherman cast two deciding votes during last
winter's session, both of them in the Interest of special privilege.
In circumstances like these it will be a serious embarrassment
to the tory senators not to have Galllnger in the chair. He is relied
upon to serve special privilege and of late years he has shown him
self rather daring in such service. Tl>e insurgents in preventing his
election made it necessary to keep Sherman within call whenever any
Important matters are up. The reason why the progressives fought
Galllnger ls stated forcefully and briefly by Senator LaFollette, who
said to the senate, "I deny the right of any secret caucus held outs'lde
of the senate chamber behind closed doors, with no reporters present,
to dispose of the public business.
"I regard the election of a president pro tempore of this great
body as of tremendous Importance. I do not propose to be read out
of the republican party because I cannot conscientiously support some
man whom a number of my party associates have agreed upon at a
The progressive senators who follow LaFollette in this fight are
Brlstow, Cummlngs, Bourne, Works, Clapp, Gronna, Crawford and
Poindexter. ■ "
