We halo ecimirnated the city contract fcr fire p'otection, also the Fdorthern Pacific contract; both of these contracts required con stant operation of pumps and heavy operating costs. Our customers are now given the ad vantage of lower rates and better service than could be furnished under the former con ditions. DON'T BE DECEIVED BY FALSE OR MISLEADING STATEMENTS Our plant is permanent and the city plant can not meet our rates for service. The public service commission finds our plant thoroughly modern and efficient in every way. The service is up to the standard and we are operating un der the supervision and control of the public service commission. Our rates established by that commission are so much lower than the city rates that it pays all water users to consider this item in determining which service to accept.

GREAT FALLS STRIKE COM. WORKERS VS. CAPITALISTS .STRIKE SNAP SHOTS (Continued From Page Une.', visit the Homestead mills by coi' pany officials on the ground that it might have a "demoralizing" effect on those at work. "Char" and old newslapers make an awful smoke, we'll tell the world * * A sample of Steel Trust justice was the recent "hearing" of com plaints of riot and inciting to violence against 17 strikers arrested the day before the strike began at North Clairton, Pa. Burgess Thomas William, a com pany official, was judge, the chief: of police, the prosecuting attorney, and the state Cossacks the complainants. Despite the fact that all the 17 men were merely attending a mase meeting before even a strike had gone into effect, they were all held in $1,000 bail each. If not for William Brennan, a lo cal attdrney and a former Working man, they would still be in jail. He furnishcd bail and they were re leased. The following one-act comedy took place in --".-- alley, in Pittsburgh noner (the dialogue is in Polish): Villain........................ boss foreman HIeroine....... ....A...... striker's wife A milk bottle. Cops ...............Pittsburgh's "finest." More heroines. A boss from Jones and Laughlin's plant appears in the alley, it is early morning, and asks two laborefs in the court yard in a threatening voice: "Why don't you go to work?" A window opens, the heroine leans out, shouting: "We're all white men here, mister. We won't go back to work until the strike is won." Boss looks up, sees the wife, and shouts: "You - ----- of a -- -, take your head in!" He reaches back to his hip pocket. A milk bottle descends, hits him and cuts his hand. More windows fis open. More white caps appear, more bottles de scend---a.nd other utensils. Boss beats a hasty retreat and goes to nearby police station. Returns in 15 minutes with two policemen and explains the situation. r........... D -L IS WANTED WITHOUT FAIL FOR THE SMEN WHO ARE IN JAIL Hundreds of workers are literally rotting in the jails of this country because of their activiy in the cause of Labor. Many of these victimsun of the world-wide class war are awating trial-and have been waiting for many weary months for the speedy trial guarainteed them by the United States Constitution. Others were tried and sentenced to terms ranging from one to twenty years during the period of war hysteria, and appeals in their cases are now being taken froin King Capital drunk to King Capital sober. Some of the prisoners have escaped by death, others are dying, mans have contracted tuberculosis and other loathsome diseases, and all are suffering untold agony from close confinement in the fetid atmosphere, from insanitary and unhealthy surroundings, from poor and insufficient food, and from inhuman treatment accorded them by brutalized guards. Past attempts to secure bail for all of these workers in jail have not been attended with great success because of the lack of system. In dividuals sought to secure bail for their personal friends, and failing to get the necessary amount they returned what had been collected, thus making tlihir entire efforts fruitless. This was the condition facing the delegates from all, the western district organizations of the Industrial Workers of the World when they met in conference on July 3 and 4 in Seattle. The delegates solved the problem by an unfailing means Organization. A Bail and Bond Committee was elected to systematize the work of collecting bail and a nation-wide drive has been started to secure the loan of cash, Liberty Bonds and property sufficient to gain the release of all class war prisoners. With practically no advertising Six Thou sand I)ollars were raised in the first five days. More than Two Hun dtired Thousand Dollars are needed to release those now being held for their Labor activity. Stuns of Five Dollars and up are accepted as loans. and all cash, Lib erty Bonds or property is tabulated in triplicate, one copy going to the person making the loan, another being retained by the Bail and Bond Committee, and the thiird being filed with the Trades Union Savings and Loan Association of Seattle, with whom all funds, bonds and prop erty schedules will be banked. only those who have been proved loyal and trustworthy are being sent out as collectors. Everything possible has been done to safeguard tli's bail and bond fund, from the selection of the committee to the choice of the bank. A portion of the fund is being set aside to return loans on demand in case persons who have made them are forced to leave the country or have other reasons for making a withdrawal. Bail will be used to release specified persons where that is desired, but otherwise the release will take place by a blind drawing of names, thur insurina fairnecss to all prisoners. By common consent the men in Wichita, Kansas, jail will first be released, as they have been held the longest and jail conditions are worse there than anywhere else in the entire country. This bail has nearly all been subscribed, and the men will hbe made accredited collectors when released, and their speedy release will help to set olhers at. liberty. No necessity exists for argument. Your duty is clear. If your ears are not deaf to a call from your class, if you feel that an injury to one is an injury to all, if there burns within you the faintest spark of human ity. ynu will see that the men do not remain behind the bars an un necessary minute because you withheld your support. THEY ARE WILLING TO lIVE THEIR LIVES FOR YOU! ARE YOU WILLING TO LOAN YOUR DOLLARS TO THEM? Send all cash, checks and bonds to John L. Enodaht, Secretary of Ball and Bond Committee, Box W, Ballard Station, Seattle. Property schedules should he filed with Attorney Ralph S. Pierce, Room 607 Central Building, Seattle.

Michael Mestrovich, organizer for the steel strikers in Clairton, Pa., whose life was threatened by Vigil antes in an anonymous letter, is still on the job, despite the fact that he has been arrested 10 times and is under $2,500 bail. The letter he re ceived was written on a typewriter in red, and reads as follows: "While our boys were risking their lives fighting the kaiser, what were you doing? "You were an alien enemy then and you are an alien enemy now We don't want any of your kind around here. ':"If$ 'ou want to save your worth less hide you had better leave this place before sundown tomorrow. "VIGILANCE COMMITTEE." Mike is a Rumanian and one of Ihe best speakers the International Mill, Mine and Smelter Workers union has. Being a Rumanian, he could not be an "alien enemy," but that cuts little figure with the steel trust gunmen. Recently the state troopers con fiscated the automobile with which Mike had been supplied in order to cover the district, and they used it for patrol work any gave it up only when legal proceedings were threat ened. Franik P. Walsh looked in on the situation when he came to Pittsburgh in the party of Pres:aent De Valera of the Irish republic. He has volun teered his services to the national committee.
