With a Jury of their Own
thority Could Not Get Judgment Against Kicker.
The Kicker case was called Monday and the trial be
gan Tuesday morning and the arguments closed at sup
per time Wednesday. At 10:30 the iury agreed to disa
gree and was discharged It was a hard -fought battle,
with nearly all of the lawyers in town aiding the enemy,
while the Kicker was represented by Wilson Cramer.
On the jury there was not a Socialist. On the bench
sat a Democrat. So far as
composed ot eleven well -selected Democrats and one Re
publican. They stood 8 to 4 in favor of "the party."
That, under the circumstances, was a remarkable
viotory for the Kicker. Will tell you all about it in the
next issue. I did not have time to get other court pro
ceedings. Will give them in full uext week.
THE SAME OLD TRICK.
The other day a lady of Ben
ton sent to the Kicker a local
paper containing an article with
extracts from Herr Babel s book,
"Women and Socialism." The au

identity and would no more meet
a Socialist in debate than he d
fly. The attempt Is made to
show that Socialists are agin

w hich sucks up hundreds of thous

lady asks that 1 reply to the ar
ticle. There is nothing to reply-
to unless I had the space to re
produce Herr Babies book. Fur
thermore, the book contains Herr
Babel's personal views and haa no
more to do with the jsoeinlist
party than President Taft's non
belief in Christ has to Uo w ith the
Republican party A Socialist
can believe in anything or noth
ing so far as religion Is concern
ed, and it has absolutely nothing
to do w ith Socialism. Unlike the
pluted. we do not propose to reg
ulate a person's thinking aparat
us on ma tters spiritual. Socialism
deals with conditions here and
Thei-e yaw pari for their mas

seems to me that the German
vote ought to be sufficient an

the Germans are about as moral
as any other people Herr Ba
bel is the German Socialist
leader And at the election last
January the Germane elected 110
members to the Reichstae -making
it the strongest party in the
empire. Is that not answer
enough or are you going to say
that the Germans are free lov
In the same paper there was
another article to show that the
Socialists were asrin "Old Glory

HERE AND YONDE
least Week the press of the na
tion teemed with accounts of the
Titanic disaster at am. In which
over 1,500 !lv were sniffed out
a full account of wh'. 'h appears
on another page The ablp struck
an iceberg. Why ahoid 1,500
people drown on a ablp that was
four hours In sinking? Was It
hot became there were not suffi
cient life-boats? Why was there
a scarcity of lire-boats? Was It
not becauee life-boats cost mon
ey and take up valuable room on
the ship? When ships are run for
safety instead of profit, there
will be more life-boats on board
But an investigation by the Uni
ted States senate was Immediate
ly ordered. Why? Because many
of those that perished were of the
"better class." How often nave
you read of mine horrors where
men and boys were trapped like
rats and left to die by Inched be
cause of the failure of the owners
to provide safety Did you ever
hear of a senate Investigation
there? In a New York shirt
waist factory a fire broke out
last year. Because it w as feared
that the employes might get
away with some of the goods the
doors were kept locked. There
was no escape for the girls and
hundreds of them perished. Did
you bear of any tenate Investiga
ting committee there? Oh, no.
But public sentiment forced the
arrest of the owners, a sham trial
was held and the blame laid on
God! The owners were acquited.
Frederick town seems to have
an epidemic of incendiarism
Last winter the Madison Hotel
was set on fire and destroyed. It
seems that it was the result of
factional strife. Last week Joe
Scbrum and Clarence Umfleet
were arrested charged with the
offense. What evidence there is
against the men Is unknown, but
the authorities believe that the
mystery Will now be uncovered
Last week it was discovered that
an Incendiary tried to burn the
barn of Z T. Berryman. A large
hole had been burned, but the fire
went out all of which looks bad
for the city that boasts of its
schools and churches and prohi
bition. Nothing prospers in Scott coun
ty like a good, pious-faced Demo
crat one who can let go of some
"beautiful prayera" Squire Mil
ler, of Benton, haa received a let
ter from a piano house asking
him to locate the piano bought
by T. F. Rucker. late editor of
the court house organ. This is
the piano that was up in the sub
scription contest and awarded to
Tom Baty. of Blodgett It has
not been paid for. Poor Tom !
He came near losing his Democ
racy when he got bornswaggled
out of the automobile and now
he loses the piano.

The difference between you and

casional "job" and you get an
occasional "position". At the
end of the year you are in debt,
but the tramp lent
As compared with the black
slave, when he got alck he got
the best of medical attention
the same as a fine horse or cow
Does your boss ever worry a
bout the attention you get when
you are sick?
0b, you fool! Not as well off
as a chattel slave and yet you
will try to look wise and Imagine
yourself smart just as I used to
when I owed for the clothes on
my back. 1
