If the work of the industrial relations
committee should never bear fruit in
any other way, its creation has been
justified by the disclosures at the in
vestigation of the Colorado coal
miners' strike.
For the first time the American
people are permitted an insight into
the methods of the industrial despots,
who held as naught the lives of men,
women, and children, when set
against their monopolistic desires,
and financial interests. By the re
luctant testimony of John D. Rocke
feller, Jr., himself and his hired lieu
tenants, political domination, intimi
dation of high state officials, murder,
utter contempt for law and what it
stands for, ruthless disregard of pri
vate and public rights, in shorty every
hellish 'wrong that may be perpetrat
ed and the consequences avoided by
the use of extreme wealth, has been
proved beyond a doubt
Chairman Walsh has been indefat
igable and fearless in searching for
the proofs of corporation iniquity. He
has found them and exposed them to
the view of the world.
Certainly, the people of America
can no longer fail to see that the pre
datory malefactors of the Rocke
feller stamp constitute the most
deadly menace to liberty and democ
racy which our country faces today.
The Colorado Fuel Co. is merely a
concrete example of a vigjnua system J
which is the nation's curse, perhaps
a little more flagrant in its transgres
sions only because Rockefeller's
tainted wealth was a little greater
than others of his kind, making him
therefore a little more arrogant. But,
in their efforts to strangle economic
freedom, they each and every one op
erate alike.
The Colorado investigation has
rent asunder the veil of secrecy
which has shrouded The Curse.
The People should rise in their
might and demand that their public
servants provide The Remedy.
Put the Rockefeller gang on trial!
Illinois mothers' in convention have
decided the day is past when their
daughters can be trusted to the
CHIVALRY of man. We observe
that that day passes as soon as each
generation of women gets married.
A Minneapolis man who married
two women has asked to be locked in
jail to escape seeing either or both.
The court ought to sentence him to
See them; and allow him 20 yards law
of flight.
The worst knock on the Repub
lican party we yet have heard comes
from the Republican national com
mitteeman who says: "There is no
candidate stronger than our own L.
Y. Sherman."
