Making Socialists In a Louisiana Bull Pen
Bull pen jail where 00 white
prisoners were herded In room 30
by 00 feet, only a rope separat
ing them from scores of negro
prisoners. Photograph taken when
women of Lake Charles gave them
one good meal.
By Henry C. Waters.
LAKE CHARLES, La., Nov. 8.
—This will tell how 60 union
men now on trial here for mur
der, herded in a small jail and
how their treatment has made so
cialists of them.
The jail here is probably the
only one In the world which
serves as headquarters of a so
cialist local. ' Its charter mem
bers are these 60 union timber
workers arrested after the battle
at G-rabow, La., July 7. On the
wall of the jail hangs a charter
from the national socialist party.
A. L. Emerson, national presi
dent of the Timber Workers'
union, Is one of the prisoners.
"This is one way the lumber
trust has of making socialists,"
Is the philosophical way Emerson
views his imprisonment. "When
we entered this 'Black Hole of

revolutionary than ever, so now
those in jail take turns at shak
Nearly all the men In jail have
families. The union is support
ing them while the men are In
Only a few of the men had ever
seen inside of a jail before. Evi
dence was presented to the grand
jury that three of the men were at
Beaumont, Texas, 100 miles away,
when the killing occurred. Emer-
I son, indicted and denied bail, was
arrested on the spot and was
found to be unarmed.
But the grand jury reasoned
that if there had never been any
effort to organize unions there
would have been no killings. So
the union men were indicted.
For several weeks the 00
men were kept in a filthy
jail room, .10 by OO feet. A
ro|>e separated them from 70
"t'giws kept in the same
sized space in the utlitr end
of tlie jail.
One of the arguments used by
(he lumber interests against the
union is that there are many
negroes employed in the industry
and that if all the workers are
nrgamized the negroes will be on
a level with the whites. This
argument applies only to timber
workers out of jail.
The conditions in the Lake
Charles jail were so rotten that
in a few weeks one man died and
10 others were taken to a hospi
tal. Then the state woke up, had
aw investigation and the union
men were placed in the basement
of the courthouse, where armed
guards watch them.

The I. W. W. plans to pull off
a strike during the trial and
claims 50,000 workers have
agreed to walk out as a protest.
"We are just prisoners of war,"
says Emerson. "The war is ac
tually on. There is no use crying
peace, peace any longer. They
have more prisoners at Lawrence,
Mans., aiwi some more in Califor
nia. Wfl are the largest crowd of
prisoners of war In the world just
now. The idea of these men here
killing their own members is a
joke. But everything is against
us. The newspapers fear the big
lumber interests. One Eociallst
writer who came here was shot.
Our speakers and solicitors for aid
have been clubbed and beaten.
Hut if we don't get a fair trial
there are 100,000 members of
the timber workers' unions who
will demand the reason."
