W ithl theml 8, I OOt)0 r(tlls of alllillitioii,, ,in( 100 grenades, such as have been 1'on0tld most effective ill France. "The men andtl grins were sent inl 1]esponse to a i'eqtlnest It Maj.-Gen. John F. Morrison fromn Major' A. MA. Jones, ii c'oin niand of the regiularl troops in Bulle." One, after readlinlg the above ill the rtags published Ili lo\\wn, might think lhat the anilnllllilioll was to le used to fill the emllty stolhmahlls while tMalriit Mallteiy. Short-WVeight Lo,,tay, "Dirty-Water" Carroll, anlo a few itt re well-fed pat riot eel's and a couple of labor fa'kis were Ikinlg arounld lfor a large sized tub of wihitewasJt. The findinlgs of these coin-gelet's will follow thie well known rule, that contlilions were infr'(tualllllte it ) Imi\,void able; no one was to hblame, antl things would have ladjiusted themselves inl time, if' the workel's and returned soldiers had submitted tamely to th ilerule of l0 nliniing lcompanlies. But the same mightl be said of the Belgians and Fr'etn'h; there would have been more of them alive today if they had not resisted the kaiser and his invading horlles. But what these "illvestigatorsl'" do not of will not realize is. that as long as men are itmen and the red blood of life flows through theici veins, the rulle of tiituocrliis. te they kiings, em perors or c(apitalistic exploiters, will ialw\ays Ie opposed. This is the inIuIlablle law ,of ltullre. And il the end it. will prevail over all nital-lade laws or the ukase of kiigs or emperors. lis iritiulph is ievitalile ibecause its anim is JUSTICE FOB ALL. And whoever opposes the otttlaini.iet of this aim will meet the fate thlit has and always will Ie tlie fate of' piarisites. Thie exploited have had eoiughli of ilnvestigalions; they ,pro pose to right wrongs which need no investigation. LET TIlE INVESTIGATOIIS STAND ASII)E. AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL IN AUTHORITY. Thie following news item, or .whalever pleases oell to call it, is from the liittle aily Post dated the ll of February, 1919. REAL) IT: "Why don't these fellows start something?" So say the privates and non-coins of the 44th United States infantry, regulars, who are on guard duty here. The officers have perfect control over their men, but the men are itching for a scrap. "We have to hold them in," say the officers. "We have to hold them in," say the non-corns. "Why don't they let us get at them?" say the men in the ranks. A call canme in to the headquarters of the troops this morning and a squad was gathered together. Guns were looked over. Everything was in readiness for a trip to "the hill" and a poten tial scrap. Then minutes later the sergeant announced it was a "false alarnm." The men were thoroughly disgusted according to all appear ances. And this is the 20th centurlly. Iii tlie United States of' America. iin the count'ry Ilithat leired the w\il'r withl the iles sage to thle wo\\ld (hl "militarism oiust be swept 1'from the ftce of' the carthli." Congressmen, sentlor's. geiitleimen il iauthority, what do youi think of' this bold, brutal and callous threat to kill melni and womenfl of the w\\'orking class? We ask, What do you think of it? Are the workers of this cou.llntly to conliclude that their lives and those of their women and children are aibsolutely at tihe ileI'cy of such mcin? Or are Ihey to believe that suich state meniits werie lievcr made, but a iutiitillhpiece otI tie c'olll)el' barols are permitted to incile by ipriiitilig such matlter? We ask these questions, gentlemelcn, believinig it is yoiur business to anllswe'. 'lThere are soldiers in this c('llllillltli who aill'e stabbling with baytonets not oinly the workers, who have been forced outil of the mines, but soldiers \\who have relturned I''(iir duty. Se\v eral of Ihcste victiiis are iii tIhe hoslpital, silomle of' them witll cruell wounllds. \\'What were they doiiig? yoiii ask. They were Ipeatcefultly picketing the mnines, for Ihey are ut oiit n strike. Hlow were they forced out ot the mines? They were digging the coppller ore, and 'fo(' their daily lalboru they received $5.75 per day, anid li Anaondiia (Coplper Miniii<g company redltuced this wage $1 er' day, d ayil tlierel'core, like mieli, they went on strike. Who would ilot have done the saiie who has any self resplect? The Alnacoinda CoPpller Mili iig cionmpainy i, well kiiown to) you. It must lie. They owni this state and co(intirol its every political act It is the companly that forces its employes I(i obtail the rusthliiig card, a systcli i1' blacklistillg all who dare to challenige or even think differently to their wish. They made $82,000,000 duiiriiing tlie war. And now they have reduced the paIy of' the miniers and all within their employ $1 per day. And because the workers, who go down into the hell beneath and risk their lives whilst digginig the precious ore, refused to accept this cut in wages, they are to be bruised, slugged and wounded. They are to be threatened by those who want to kill. (entlemen, what do you thiiink of this? And those who you called to the colors, who parted with mothers, wives, and sisters, who went into training camps ' " 'and were prepAred to go over the toptath'e risk of their lives.
