It strikes like a thunderbolt in the heart of every free man. The judges who have affirmed the sen tence stand on a level with the notorious police bandit, Captain Bonfield; with the barbarous persecutor, Ebersold; with the monumental pevjurer, Schack; with the corrupt jury: with the tiger of the bar. Grinned, and with the scoundrel of all scoundrels, Gary, the manager of tlie greatest “judiciary’’ crime of our times. Our comrades, Sp'es, Parsons, Schwab, Fielden, Lingg, Fischer and Engel, are to ex pire on tlie gallows while Neebe must be doomed to death in a dungeon, and yet no man has the hardihood to claim that any of these eight martyrs threw the famous bomb on May 4. 1S-G. From a legal point of view not a shadow of evidence was furnished that any one of our ; eight persecuted comrades were directly or in directly participants in the affair. Why, then were these champions of free speech condemn- j ed? Because they exercised the rights guar anteed to all men by the Constitution of this j country. Though the trial occupied nearly two ; months and perjured witnesses came trooping i into the court In droves, it was impossible to lay other crime at their doors. Amercan workers, will you suffer this out rage to be flung in your face? Will you remain silence and allow that so-calVid justice shall be defiled in so bloody a manner—a dastardly deed alleged to be sanctioned by the w.ll of the j people? It must never be. Arise in your im posing might, and let your righteous wrath fall In unmistakable protest upon the heads ol these interpreters of the law who have basely betrayed their trust. The alms and purposes of anarchy have been blackguarded and villified by the fiends ol humanity, who feast upoD your servitude. You will know how to guard against such slander and assert your own manhood. Anarchy is not a frightful chaos as pictured j by the hired press; it aims, on the contrary, at the fraternal harmony of all mankind. What the Anarchists strive at is to put a stop to me , wholesale fleecing of toilers by shrewd monop olists and the robbers who masquerade as ex change speculators. The suppression of every injustice and tyranny and the establishment of a social condition, where each individual c ntributes his share of useful work and enjoys the benefits of life in a rational manner—that is our ideal. Ar.nrcliiton is neither bloodshed, licentiousness, ttar# nfvtuion of* -c-r bums'r principle. It is synonymous with humanity, freedom and justice. The crime for which the seven men in Chi cago are to be hanged is purely a devotion to . these high and noble aspirations. The beasts of capital want blood. Their hirelings have ; shown themselves ready to seize the best and noblest from the ranks of the people and j render them up to their senseless rage. Workmen, will yrv. remain quiet while the ■ strivings of your people, identical with the , holiest yearnings of mankind, are sacrificed and trampled under foot in the persons of your i comrades. You know what is your duty. | These condemned men are suffering because ] they love! mankind better than themselves: ; because they wrote and preached to you, and for you the gospel of the future. Now you must demonstrate your solidarity, the strength of your organization. Gather to gether, summon our comrades from every side : and proclaim our opinions in such a way that no doubt can remain of their character. The workingmen of America must show that their sense of justice and their hatred of tyranny in this shameless form has not been destroyed. II you wish to do so you can prevent the consum mation of November 11—this horrible deed to which the deeds of cannibals are as nothing We demand that every man does his duty, and that you say to this rabble of thieves and mur derers which rule you: ‘ Thus far and no fur ther.” Indignation meetings must be called, and held ns quickly as possible. Above all, it is necessary that the interpreters of the Consti tution at Washington be spurred to pass upon this judicial murder proposed at Chicago. The judgement of b’.ood is not yet executed. Let every man do his duty and it never will he. Long live the solidarity. Down with bar barism. Federation of Trades’ Union, New York, Sept. 18, 1887.
