she asked him later:
- "Suppose I hadn't loved you as
the poor young man, or that I
hadn't proved faithful to my
promise?" but he, once more
kissing hpr, declared;
"Either premise would have
been impossible, darling, because
you see you are-yourself."

ETTOR AND GIOVANETTI.
Two Jabor leaders, Ettor and
Giovanefff, have been in jail at
Lawrencej Mass., for several
months, without bail, charged
.with being accessories before the
fact to the murder of one of the
girl strikers during that strike of
textile workers.
Neither Ettor nor Giovanetti
killed the girl. It 'is well known
who did kill her. But the argu
ment is something like this: Et
tor and Giovanetti were strike
leaders trouble grew out ol the
strike they led a girl was killed
Ettor and Giovanetti are guilty
because they led the strike, the
strike led to trouble, trouble led
to murder, etc., etc., etc.
It is well known that neither of
the strike leaders incited the
strikers to violence. On the con
trary, they publicly urged the
strikers not to resort to violence,
even telling them hot to argue
with policemen or soldiers who
insulted them, but to walk away
from their insulters.
ed with murder, and-locked up
without bail.
Let's see how the same argu
ment would work in Chicago.
Certain newspaper publishers
hired ex-convicts and gunmen
and had them deputized as police
men anjd sheriffs this gave them
the right to carry revolvers
some of them killed a street car
conductor and some of them
killed an innocent teamster.
Are the publishers who hired
the gunmen who committed the
murder any less guilty of being
accessories before the fact than
Ettor and Giovanetti.
Of course nobody expects the
law to take any such view of it.
Perhaps we ought to be thankful
that all the striking newsboys
were not arrested in Chicago as
Ettor and Giovanetti were in
Lawrence.
Yes, it does make a difference)
