The social question is rising for solution, and,though for aL moment it is forgotten, it will again sweep to the front.. The words of Pope Leo XIII., in his fa ens encyclical of 1891, have been used in liundreds of labor organs, and repeated before innumenrable labor audiences: "The momentous seriousness of the present state of things just now fills every mind with painful apprehensions; wise men discuss it, practical men propose schemes; popular meetings, legislatures, and sovereign princes all are occupied with it, and there is nothing which has a deeper hold on public attention. * * * The concentra lioa of so Irmany branches of trade in the hands of a few individuals, so that a small number of very rich men have been able to lay upon the masseas a yoke little better than slavery." The dignitaries of the church furnish many a text for labor and socialist agitation. We have trouble from colunercial monopolies marching to the polls their hosts of bribed retainers. The preda tory tendencies of men to seize upon other people's labor is still Svery strong. The intelligent workingman fortifies himself with the knowledge to be gained by reading such books as are to be had from the Bulletin Litcrary Bureau, Spend a little time during the winter ,pneings fortifying yourself upon the questions that are uppermost for solution. W11hUo some are drunken others are starving. Brush away the cobwebs on the subjects of economic and political freidtiom.

INJUNCTION iS SERVED ON LEATHER WORKERS' UNION St. Louis, Mo., Dec.

A similar in junctioh has been issued against the Amalgamated Clothing "Workers here, NEW YORK MONEY. New York, Dec. 7.-Prime mer cantile paper unchanged. Exchange-W-1eak. Sterling: De mand, 3.431/s.

When in doubt, look up the Butte Daily Bulletin. WBult Suppoers The BI.Ietin is again forcedto appeali I alders and supe porters;for asselstance. From time to tiie t. fact has been pointed out that the revenue accruing -to thi Bulletin from subscriptions and the little advertising the i carries does not pay the cost of publication. During thele year, the al-: most prohibitive price of paper has made the situation more than usually difficult. We have been compelted4o pay as much as 17 cents per pound for print paper laid doarnn Butte with. out-any large increase in revenue. Printing pCsts have risen and we have been able to counterbalance this.only by increase ing ehe subscription rate 25 .ents per month. 'Blls gave been piling up because the entire, fihancial re sources -ere required to buy paper and continue publication. A lack of working capital has handicapped us to a considerable degree and savings that could otherwise have been made have been impossible. At the present time the Bulletin is operating with a force that has- been .cut to the absolute minimum; operating expense has, been pared down to the lowest possible point and" the editorial' staff of three has voluntarily agreed to a reduction in wages., We feel that the Bulletin can continue to fulfill its function as an interpreter of the news as it affects the masses of this and other nations if those who appreciate the work the Bulletin has done and has yet to do, will realize the urgent necessity of financial aid. That the workers and farmers of the United States are suf .fering from the policies of their rulers cannot be denied; thel next few years are going to be trying ones and the necessity for a free press should be more apparent than ever. It is self-evi dent that the masses of this state and nation aro still victimized to an alarming degree by the newspapers owned and controlled by the financial interests. ..Their influence over the minds of the masses has, however, been weakened and this has been done only by papers like the Bulletin, owned and financed by the masses themselves. At this time when farmers by the thousand have been ruined by the manipulations of the speculators, when the banks have assisted in pauperizing them by refusing to carry their loans, when the farmers are compelled to sell their produce at less than the cost of production; when the workers are being turned into the streets by the bosses, when unemployment stalks through the land, when there are surpluses of all commodities while the wage-earners feel the pinch of hunger, while busi ness stagnates and the kept-press urges patience, it is well to point out that the Bulletin has consistently declared that upon the workers and the farmers would finally fall the burden oft the war; that having used them, the financial and industrial in terests would disregard their needs just as soon as they could safely do so; that the promises made to the people of this coun try would be broken and their sacrifices forgotten as soon as the inevitable depression came upon a war-ruined world. This is the function of the Bulletin; to call the attention of the people to the hypocritical pretenses of their rulers; to con stantly tell the producers that their misery is the foundation of the present order; to insist that the privileges of afew are based on the ignorance of the many and to also insist `hat the real, remedy is a knowledge of why these things are: so The Bulletlri believes that it has performed this duty well. It has been accused of being too uncompromising and it is proud to plead guilty. There can be no compromise between truth and falsehood and the Bulletin appeals only to those who arel not afraid to draw the inevitable conclusions from the facts of history. For three years the Bulletin has struggled against what at times seemed to be insurmountable obstacles. The Bulletin has been published for three years in the stronghold of reac tion, in the home of the Anaconda Mining company. It has built up a nation-wide circulation and enjoys the reputation of being the most fearless daily labor paper in the United Statese This accomplishment would have been impossible without the self-sacrifice of the men and women who earn their living by the sweat of their brows, who have stood behind the Bulletirn and contributed money they could ill-afford to spare to its support. We are asking them to do so again and to continue to do so. if they will do this, the Bulletin staff will endeavor at all costs to do as it has done in the past--get out a. paper that fights the battles of the masses with no thought of the conse quences. Here is what we would like to have you do. It must be done if the Bulletin is to continue publication. Fill out the blank that will be found below and send it in with what money you can spare. Do thjs as soon as possible and get others to do the same if-you can.., if this plan is carried out- it will enable the business office to know just how much money, in addition to the regular income, it can depend upon every( month. At the present time the Bulletin is running behind about $1,000.00 per month and this deficit must be made up by voluntary contributions if the Bulletin is to continue pubil cation. We hope by following the method outlined above, to build up a permanent sustaining organization which will make future appeals unnecessary. If this cannot be done we will publish Just as long as we can with the inspfficlent revenue at our dis posal. "4, *gRgl It should be remembered that the cost of running a small paper like the Daily Bulletin, with expenses cut to the mini mum, is $1,600.00 per week, includ!ng rent, heat, !ight, power, wages, press-services and paper. To take care of this expense, in addition to a little advertising income and subscriptions, the Bulletin must depend upin voluntary donations. The industrial depression has affected the supporters of the Bulletin more than any other 1,.l for the reason that they are .mostly farmers and wage-earnfsts.e We realize that their re sources are scanty but they dri: the people to whom we are forced to appeal, and we know from experience thait ifthey fall to support the Bulletin.in this hour of need, it willbe from sheer inability to do so. We wish to impress upon our readers and supporters the, urgent necessity of immediate action and ask that they con tribute to the limit of their means. Fill out the blank below and send it in.
