At the time of the Harris trial sev eral detachments of troops armed with riot guns and tear gas bombs and armored tanks patrolled the streets about the court-house to keep the mob that had gathered around the court room from lynching Harris. Railroad Negro to Gallows. The trial was a cut and dried affair. The sheriff was the only witness for the state and he gave what was pur ported to be a ‘'confession” of Har ris admitting that he had raped the woman. From the time that the trial opened until sentence was passed and Harris bundled Into a fast automobile took just thirteen minutes. From the moment he was arrested up to the passing of his sentence, Harris was not allowed to see any of his colored friend*. Harris, unable to get in touch with any of his friends and unable to get a lawyer was told that the Judge would appoint a lawyer. The judge appointed three lawyers to “defend” Harris. No attempt was made on the part of the lawyers to defend Har ris. Upon the judge asking whether he had anything to say before the sentence was passed, Harris realizing that if the trial exonerated him, he would still have to face the mob, de-' dared: ‘‘l’ve got nothing to fight this case with. I pleads guilty.” Denies “Confession.” Shortly after, a “confession” was widely printed In which It was al leged that Harris admitted his “crime.” Harris denies that he ever made this confession and declares many of the statements which the sheriff made in a purported confession at the "trial,” were forced from him thru torture that lasted for many hours and the constant threat that he would be released for the mob to finish. Harris denies that he raped Bry ant’s wife and declares if given an opportunity, he will force her to prove her accusations. At the time of the trial Mrs. Bryant did not attend the trial as It was claimed she was “too ill” and “too shocked.” Harris is also accused of killing Bryant, with whom lie was associated in bootlegging white mule, and Bryant’s two chil dren. Bryant had been released from prison but one day before the alleged murder. Lawyers Refuse Harris' Pleas. The lawyers that Harris had Ap pointed to represent him in the trial by the judge refuse to appeal the case. At the time of the trial despite Harris’ plea they fight for a change of venue, the lawyers refused to do so. When they were approached as to whether attempts would be made to stay the banging and appeal to a higher court, the lawyers showed their disdain for the Negro and de clared that Harris had "committed the crime” while crazed by wood al cohol that Bryant had given him to drink.” New Orleans Daily Lauds ‘Majah’ Berry for Strike-Breaking NEW ORLEANS— (FP)—The Daily States of New Orleans in a 2-column spread eulogizes George L. Berry, In ternational president of pressmen's union, for declaring that a strike is a crime, followed by an account of the troubles In New York, where he walkod into a meeting of the press men’s union and with several blows of his fist felled to the floor members of that organization who did not agree with him in his demand that the 1923 strike be called off, using brute force when persuasion failed.

He will not he able to do the work, due to the water which the landlord allows to run down from his store to the base ment. Rights Guaranteed Only by Force. Mr. Herring has made every effort to get the owners of the building to protect his shop, but about all that they will say to him is that he “must pay all the rent” or be sold out for the amount. The owner of this store signed a contract to keep water from running down from their floor to the basement but up to this time has done nothing. The colored man of North and South Brownsville are watching to see what these men will do. They say: We can see that the office seekers will say anything when they want to get our votes. They can plead a square deal. We see not the least sign of a square deal in the Morrow Bros, and Patterson, in this case.

LONDON, March 2. —The hypocrisy of British statesmen in dealing with the imperialist policies of the empire is revealed by the reassuring state ment in the house of commons of Aus ten Chamberlain that ‘‘the attitude of patience and conciliation “adopted by the British government in the pres ent situation in China is bearing fruit in the slow but steady restoration of friendship and good will between the British and Chinese peoples” with the actual fact that just a day before his address the armed forces of the British In Hongkong had paraded that city from early morning until late at night in an effort to Intimidate the Chinese. The forces included the Punjabis, a regiment of natives of In dia brot here to support British im perialism. * * * Fear a “Red” China. LONDON, March 2. —The possibility of China turning "Red” in her strug gle against foreign shackles is em phasized in the report on China, com piled for the department of overseas trade by M.

Brockton Is Proud of the Revolution That Is 150 Years in the Past By J. LOUIS ENGOAHL. “pEVOLUTION!” is today a hated -*■*' word by the ruling class in the shoe town of Brockton, Mass. But it was very different 150 years ago. Then the call to “Revolution!” rang thru this neighborhood, and every able-bbdied man was supposed to re spond to the call to arms. All who did not were denounced as royalists—• traitors. • • • This year is the 150th since the signing of the Declaration of Inde pendence. It will be celebrated far and wide as an event of‘the greatest historical significance. The American revolutionists of 150 years ago will be lauded as great heroes to be honored by all the peo ple. But Anthony Bimba, the revolution ist of 1926, the Communist editor, has been on trial here these past few days, prosecuted by a Lithuanian Jew, who has forsaken the religion of his fath ers to join the Unitarian church and do the dirty work of the profit-seeking New England capitalist class. He Is denounced as a seditionist in addition to being charged as a blasphemer. « * * I dropped in at the local library. A young man was at the book counter. I asked if they had a history of Brockton. He produced with pride a bulky volume. It was with the tremendous words of the court prosecutor, questioning about “force and violence,” “over throw of the government,” "revolu tion,” still ringing in my ears, that I turned the pages of this historic book and came to a whole chapter set apart under the heading of “The Revolu tionary War.” It starts out with this proud claim: “No period in the history of the world is more interesting, or more full of moral and political instruc tion than that of the American revo lution.” The author recites with pride the growing resistance of the colonists to the tyrannical rule of the British king. The colonial legislatures passed resolutions protesting the right of the king to impose taxes without permit ting representation in his royal par liament. This gave rise to the famous slogan, “No Taxation Without Repre sentation!” When the king’s government passed “The Sugar Act,” April 5, 1764, im posing new taxes upon the necessities of life, the waves of protest mounted higher, so that British rule sent 10,000 more soldiers to be quartered among the colonists “to maintain law and order.” The flames of revolt spread as the hated Stamp Act, of March 22, 1765, was imposed. The colonists placed a boycott on all goods coming from Great Britain, and the famous “Tea Party” threw a car go of tea into Boston Harbor. All these facts are proudly set forth In this “History of Brockton” with this comment: “All these measures did not intim idate the Americans, but served to strengthen their firm purpose not to submit to their oppression In any form. “Societies In great numbers were formed called ‘Sons of Liberty’ de termined to resist parliamentary op pression (Great Britain).” • • But the British made no retreat. Instead they strengthened their mili ASWELL BOASTS THAT HIS VICIOUS BILL AGAINST LABOR WILL BECOME LAW; NO OPPOSITION IN WASHINGTON (Continued from Page 1) pearance sake,” and Aswell smiled quite contentedly. Green Does Nothing. I don’t know how correctly the late Gompars was quoted, but investiga tion showed that the Green regime isn’t even putting up the appearance of a fight. Up to the present time President Green has appeared before no committee of congress champion ing any “labor measure." Ho has writ ten no letters to any member of con gress demanding any sort of action on anything. The so-called “labor lobby," composed of three tried and true henchmen of labor aristocracy, have shown no activity against this anti foreign-born legislation, altho the At lantic City convention last October condemned It in energetic terms. Bitter hostility to this legislation was voiced at the office of Congress man Adolph J. Sabbath, of Chicago. It was denounced as an effort to in troduce the 'deposed Russian czardora in this country. But it was admitted here that the opposition was not or ganized. Nothing had been heard hero of Green’s labor lobby. Victor L. Berger, the socialist con gressman, was back home in Milwau kee. He opposed this legislation, of course, but he had organized no fight against It. The so-called ’'progressive group” tary forces. The United States con gress is even today strengthening the power of Its Governor General Leon ard Wood in the Philippines in pretty much the same tyrannical way. The British General Gage, began building new fortifications in Boston. Then came another threat from the colonists in the holding of the Pro vincial Congress, that met at Con cord, westward from Boston, while Brockton is to the southward. At Concord, Oct. 11, 1774, the spokesmen of the colonists took measures for arming the whole province. Without any arguments about the use of "force” says of the acts of the Provincial Congress: "Twelve thousand men were or dered to be raised and to hold them selves in readiness at a moment’s warning. They were called ‘min ute men.’” The writer then goes over carefully the march of the British against Lex ington and Concord and the success ful resistance of the colonists. He writes in lauding these events the following: “At Lexington was the first blood shed In defense of the liberty of the people, and immediately on the de parture of the troops (British) from that place, by an arrangement pre viously made, the committees of safety thruout the whole country despatched messengers on horse in every direction, so that by evening every town within 100 miles was informed THAT THE WAR HAD COMMENCED. “The news was scattered thruout the towns by guns being fired, and other signals being given, so that the people in the remote sections of a town were soon aware that they were needed. "THE NEWS OF THIS BATTLE ARRIVED IN BRIDGEWATER (NOW BROCKTON) EARLY IN THE DAY AND BEFORE SUNSET THE COMPANY HAD COL LECTED AND WERE READY FOR A MARCH.” That was on April 19, 1775. The book then devotes numerous pages to following the deeds of Brockton’s rev olutionary soldiers thru the seven years of the War of the Revolution. Many pages are used up in recording their names and the military units to which they belonged. * * • Today, of course the right of revolu tion is outlawed, just as the British tried to outlaw It 150 years ago. New England, the richest center of American revolutionary traditions, is today the stronghold of the greatest reaction. New tyrannies, always new wage cuts, ever worse conditions of labor, all these things are visited upon New England labor of all nationalities by a parasite class, largely native, “The Sons and Daughters of the Revolu tion,” grown respectable thru the passage of a century and a half of time. * • ♦ Today it becomes seditious to even talk about the miserable conditions of New England labor. Bimba Is held up in court as a criminal for daring to utter these things and calling upon the workers to organize for the strug gle to better their lowly standard of living. The new revolutionary change faces the same obstacles that were con fronted by the old. But the struggle grows and develops. The new ob stacles to the new revolution will also be successfully overcome. in congress is disorganized, without leadership and having no program. It has no definite stand. Labor Must Fight. It is very evident, therefore, that the fight must come from the outside. It can only originate with the coun cils for the Protection-of the Foreign born that are now being organized in all sections of the country. These councils must not only develop senti ment against this legislation at home, but they must also provide for push ing the war energetically In Washing ton. Aswell says of his bill, “It is going to pass.” Labor over the country must say of this and all similar legislation, "It will not pass.” Lower Pay In Massachusetts. BOSTON—(FP)— The a v e r a g e weekly wage of Massachusetts cotton mill workers is actually less than that of southern textile workers, Thomas F. McMahon testified at the legisla ture’s labor committee hearings on the proposed bill to break the 48-hour law for women. Massachusetts cot ton workers average only sl6 per week while southern mill workers average 117.80 weekly, by McMahon’s statistics. Massachusetts workers have been on part time employment for over two year* KEEP OUR CITY SCABBY, PLEADS COMMERCE HEAD Los Angeles Open Shop Losing, Is Warning (Special to The Daily Worker) LOS ANGELES, March 2 The chamber of commerce, which boasts of being the largest In thq world. Is worried lest the reputation which this city has acquired as the "Citadel of the Open Shop” may be lost. Accord ing to R. W. Pridham, returning president of the chamber, “a particu larly energetic and strenuous effort is being made at this time by organized , labor, thru the medium of sympathetic j strikes, to reduce our fair city to a ' condition of industrial servitude.” It is the duty of every resident, Prid ham contended, “to combat this des structive union-labor propaganda with all the might and power at his com mand and assist the Merchants and Manufacturers Association, which has battled and maintained industrial free dom for the past thirty years.” This pathetic appeal by the million aire exploiters of the city for help from the little business men and the professional people was voiced at the recent banquet given by the chamber in honor of its newly elected presi dent, Arthur S. Bent. Other speakers Included, Robert A. Millikan, the scientist; Frederick Warde, a veteran actor, and Cyrus K. K. Curtis, editor of the Saturday Evening Post. Culture Pays. The keynote of the meeting was the plea that it was time to develop Los Angeles from the cultural standpoint. “These things have a distinct econ omic value,” declared Pridham in re ferring to the need for an artistic city and an intellectual atmosphere. The industrial situation, according* to him, was very good. During the past year 400 new industrial establishments had located in Los Angeles. The plants already here made a gain of 20 per cent in productivity. As there has been no general increase rn wages this increase shows that exploitation of the workers has become much more thoro. Their Ideal Scab Herder. Curtis made a flowery speech of praise for the city. He was warmly greeted by the banqueteers, as he is their ideal of the militant union-hater. His publications have never been unionized. In Philadelphia, the home of the Saturday Evening Post, the al most total absence of any organized labor strength is due to his overpower ing influence. WOMEN MUST BE DRAWN INTO LABOR'S STRUGGLE By AMY SCHECTER. The International Women’s Day mass meeting to be held March 6 at Northwest Hall is to mark the open ing of an intensive campaign to draw the working class women of the city Into real participation iq the struggles of the working class. Women in Industry are the victims of every type of exploitation and op pression to which men workers are subject; as a less organized section of the working class the degree of ex ploitation is in their case even more intense. The general enslavement of the working class is their enslave ment; the general fight of the working class for liberation must be their fight. Working class women fall broadly into two categories—women in indus try and housewives; tho of course im mense numbers of women are saddled with the double burden of long hours In the shops and care of their chil dren, cooking, and cleaning to attend to when they come home tired out at night. Both men and women in the shops who as union members are already consciously taking part in the dally struggle of the workers, must unite In a systematic attempt to draw all the women in the shops into the union and into the struggle. They must bring every woman in the shops to realize that her Interests as an in dividual and as a member of the work ing class are inseparable from those of the organized workers in her indus try, that their union must be her union and every struggle that It carries on her struggle. The woman In Indus try must also be approached on issues especially affecting her interests, — equal pay for equal work, abolition of night work for women, etc. The working class housewi/e has a constant struggle to meet the problem of seeing to It that her family is housed and fed and clothed and her children educated in the face of high rents, high prices, low wages, and In efficient, overcrowded schools. Work* Ing class housewives must Join the ex isting organizations, such as Mothers’ Leagues, Renters’ Associations, Par ents’ Associations, etc., and carry on a united campaign against the exploi tation with which the worker’s family is met at every turn of the road. At the International Women’s Day meeting speakers will deal with the problems of the working class women as sketched above, outlining demands and methods of work for the future.
