Mr. Conboy read Into . the record
statements, made by Victor L. Berger
declaring that the only salvation for the
worklngman Is direct action, and that the
ballot box Is a humbug. The statement
continued :
"Each of the 600.000 Socialist voters
and of Jie r, 000,000 workmen who In
cllhe to. us should have a good rifle and
the necessary rounds of ammunition tn
his home and be prepared to back tip his
ballot with his bullets lf necessary." Mr.
Berger said that "In order to be. able to
shoot some day," the Socialist party
must have control of the Government.
He stated that In the final conflict
large part "of the capitalist class would
be wiped out, and concluded : "Tho ballot
may not count for much In a pinch."
At the time Berger made the state
ment he stood alone, Mr. HlllqulWrald,
and It was an untimely and rather pessi
mistic prediction. He paid high tribute
to- Mr. Berger as a loyal and patriotic
citizen. The statement served ft the
basis for obtaining from Mr. Hlllqult
his own view of the possibility of armed
conflict between the forces of Socialism
and the established Government. He
said:
