UNION MEN ACCUSE TRUST
PRESS OF UNFAIRNESS The loop papers are lined up solid ly against labor in the controversy with the building trades employers. They are grinding an axe the axe of Big Business uT-the hopes that Big Business will recognize their faithful service by casting them a few crumbs of advertising. That they are serving well their master is shown by the fact that there has not been a defalcation in the ranks of trust dailies in their at tack on labor and their glorification of Big Business. It is proven by the fact that when one sheet prints an unfair, untrue story about the unions that the others papers all make haste to say likewise. John Metz, president carpenters' district council: "The loop press has been unfair all through. By this time all working men must have learned that they cannot get a square deal from the trust papers. I would like to see every union man in Chicago get behind The Day Book. I believe The Day Book will benefit Chicago unionism more than a labor daily would." Daniel Galvin, Secretary of Car penters' District Council: "They are lying about us in every issue, doing everything to turn public opinion against the union man. Anyway, the Tribune had to swallow some of its bitterest words." Charles Fry, Business Agent Ma chinists: "Let the trust press rave. It is dead against us and it knows we know it. But we know it has to pander to the ones who control its body and soul" Louis Toule, President White City Council Lathers: "We don't expect a square deal from the loop dailies. If they told the truth about a labor condition it would hurt the feelings of Big Business and their advertising column source of revenue would suf fer. The conduct toward us of the Tribune has been especially unfair and abominable." Anton Sommers, Vice President German Local 1784, Carpenters, Chairman Carpenters' Report Com mittee: "There is one effective way for working men to combat the evil of the scab dailies of the loop re fuse to buy them. I never buy a Chi cago daily except The Day Book and my German-paper. Since the strike my official position has forced me to read the trust papers. Speaking of the carpenters' strike, they have been a solid pack of lies from column to column, all of them. No self-respecting working man should spend P penny for one of these filthy sheets."
