Publicity Committee of the
Strikers Issues Statement
of Conditions. Bosses
The following, under date of
Thllursday, has been received frit')
the publicity committee of L. W. I.
i'. No. 500, at Spokane:
"The lulnberjacks' strike is still
on. This strike started three weeks
ago, and was caused by the tonm
panies raising the board 25 cents a
day and making a charge of $1 a
week for blankets. The lumber in
dustry of eastern Washington, Idahoi
and Montana is practically at a
standstill. Only a few "jylpos" are
working. Pickets are on the job
night andtll day il all the hlunibel
'A few days ago the lulber Itarons
held a meeting which lasted two
days. At the end of this meeting t
the Spokane papers announced theliy
had decided to employ no molre I
1W. W.s, even if they had to be con
tent wiith a decreased output.' Ninety
per cent of the lumberjacks in this
section are organized in the I. WV. W..
so if no I. W. V.s are employed it
will mean that productionl will be
cut to 10 per cent of normal. There
is an active detmand for lumbenr and
prices never were so highl. The lutlt
ber barons atre in blutsiness to mllakie
profits. If they were to employ no
more I. W. \V.s they would cut 90'
per cent off their profits.
"The one thing, above all others
sacred to busitness men is their
profits. To suppose that they would
deliberately kill their god is ridicu
lous. As long as the demand for
lumber is good and prices are high.
they will speed up productioln. They
think they could make bigger profits
by employing workers who are not
mlelmbers of the I. XV. W., hence
their efforts to get rid of the or
ganization, but the I. WV. WV. has got
too firtn a hold on the lumber in
dtustry to be shakenl off. The lunl
ber batrons will have to be content
with the profits produced by the
I. WX. WV.s or they will see 90 per
cent of those profits vanish alto
gether. But the situation would be
mituch worse than this. Practically
all Ihe real lumlberjacks belong to
the union. The 10 per cent unor-ý
ganized are inot efficient workers.
''It would be impossible to run i
ctantp profitably with 10 per cent of
a crow, even of gotod llituberjacks;
mluch less with i green hands.
"The lumbeir barons also omitted
to explaitn how they are going t.,
eliminate thle I. WV. WV. There is lito
outward or vi.tible difference be
tween an I. \V. WX, and another itlan.
When the strik,er:; go back oni the
job, if the detltandsi are not conceded
the intermittetnt strike and the job
strike will be used. The cotmpanier
know this and it is causing theni

SCHOOL BOARD HAS
CHANGED ITS MIND
Th- school hboard is trying to back
out of its deal for property ontt
South Malini street, owned by lohllni
Powers. The board last spring
wanted the ground as a part of the
area upon which erection of a new
high school was contemplated. A
conlmission allotwed Powers $14,000O
for his land and building. Powers
appealed to the district court from
the appraisement of the commnission.
A jury granted Powvers $18,000.
x Now tile school hoard hai changed

property. Saturlar, alttorneys for

SOOSA EXPEBT WITH GUNS
AS WELL AS WITH BANDS
Practically all of the civilized
world is familiar with I,ieut. John
Philip Sousa, th" band leader, and
hundreds have g:ven imitations of
himnt when leading his hand. Many
also know that he is a composer of
operas, words and music, has writ
ten some splendid books and that he
has composed more than 1(00 suc
cessful marches. But only his
friends know him when he puts aside
his uniform and becomes a plain
American citizen, ready for any fun
or frolic. He is a lover and student
of nature, and passes weeks every
year "out in the wilds" with his
horses, his dogs and his guns.
"Always treat animals like friends
and not like slaves," is his motto,
and if you are desirous of argument
just dispute his assertion that the
greatest of all recreations are the
companionship of a good horse and
a faithful dog, a dependable gun,

R.., PRESIDENT SEES
AND KNOWS IT ALL
President Robert S. Lovett of
the Union Pacific railroad and a
number of other leading railroad of
ficials arrived in Butte Saturday
evening in a special train of seven
cars. According to the carefully de
tailed story in the morning papers,
Judge Lovett went to bed at i
o'clock Saturday night, arose at 6
o'clock Sunday morning, read the
morning papers before breakfast at
7 a. im., and then proceeded afoot
to niake a tour of the railroad sta
tions and yards of Butte. It was
claimed that ,Judge Iovelt walkeou
some four miles through the snow.
in the course of his jaunt. After
completing this feat, Judge Robert
S. Lovett, president of the Union Pa
cific Railroad company, again board
ed the special train of seven cars
and departed with his party over the
O. S. L. in the direction of Pocatello,
the morning papers state that
Judge Lovett, in the course of his
walk yesterday morning, attained a
detailed knowledge of the railroad
business in Butto. They also state
that Judge Lovett feels complete
confidence in the ability of the
Washington officials to secure an
amicable and satisfactory adjust
ment of the presently threatening
situation in the labor world.
JOBS ARE SOUlHI FOR
Many Butte employers have re
ceived lately communications from
Edwin C. Weemple, western district
director for the secretary of war.
The letters are appeals to the em
ployers to find jobs for the returned
service men of high technical train
ing who have recently come back
from the army more or less broke.
Mr. Wemple says: "A great many
men are now calling for help who
have never before been placed in the
position of having to look for a job.
Many of these men are men of pride,
whom it hurts to ask anybody for as
Mr. Wemple earnestly urges the
employers of Butte to save these men
of high technical training and sensi
tive natures from the embarrassment
of having to look for a job. In the
meantime millions of men and wom
en rustle daily for jobs at the gates
of mines, mills and factories. To as
sume that the highly trained have a
monopoly on pride or that their
stomachs gnaw more distressingly,
when unfed, than the bellies of the
unskilled, is perhaps a natural con
clusion for Mr. Weemple to reach, but
that it is a mistake many working
men and workingwomen will main
SEARCHES FOR HER EMiL
Sixteen years ago in Vermlandtl
Sweden, Miss Alma Peterson and
Emil Johnson were playmates. Then
both came to the United States, but
at different times. Saturday Miss
Peterson, accompanied by her sister,
Mrs. Ellen Miller, as chaperon, ar
rived in Butte in search of Emil,
whom they had been led to believe
was elmplloyed here as a carpenter.
Since then tIhe police department and
the reportorial staff of every news
paper in town have been searching
assiduously for Emil. Several Emils
have been produced, but in each case
he was the wrong one.
SPECIAL METING IN

A special meeting is called to
