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
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?
