The Eastern Anarchists Prejudicing tlie
Cases of Their Condemned Bretliern by |
Their Injudicious Utterances—A Chai
acteristicUircuIar to "Workingmen" Call
ing Upon them to Prevent tlie "Horrible
Heed.”
COLUMEtTS, O., Sept. 30.—The following
circular, which is dated New York, and
row published both in German and En
glish, was distributed very quietly yester
day by the Anarchists, calling on the
workingmen to prevent the hanging of
the condemned Anarchists at Chicago:
To th• Workingmen of the United States and
Forth America:
You have heard the Supreme Court (le ision
in the Chicago Anarchists’ fases. 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.

THE LIMEKILN CLUB.
Brother Gardiner Pays a ConserratiT*
Tribute to a Deceased Brother.
“It ur’ my painful dooty to an
nounce another death among de mem
bers of dis club,” said Brother Gard
ner, as the meeting opened. “Unper
ceived Watson, an honorary member
residin’ at Griffin, Ga., ar' no mo’ on
airth. I hev.bin notified by letter dat
he passed away a week ago. De stew
ard will drape do red stool wid de
usual emblem of mournin’, an’ if de
deceased was behind on his dues he
will draw a blue mark fru de account.
“I knowed Brudder Watson. In his
death de world has lost a purtv fa r
sort o’ man. While he paid his debt9
to de last cent, no white man could
keep chickens widin’ two miles of him.
While yon could trust him wid a hoss,
he nebber lost an opportunity to pick
up a pig. He was skeercely eber ab
sent from de Thursday ebenin’ prayer
meetin’, but you didn’t want to leave
a bone-handled umbrella wliar’ he
could pick it up.
“Brudder Watson vras powerful kind
to his family, but at de same time he
didn’t lose sight of do fackt dat his
three chill’on war’ bow-legged an’ his
wife cross-eyed. He liggered it down
dat some of ’em would be sick about
once a week an’ dat deir shoes would
w’ar out about So often.
“Brudder Watson didn’t expect too
much of dis cold world. If ho traded
mules uns’ght an’ unseen he went out
to his stables in de mawnin’ prepared
to see a corpse. If he put up a dollar
on de string-game he wisely figured
dat de odder feller had eighty-four
chances to his sixteen. Ho realized
dat de winter brought chilblains and
de summer mosquitoes, an’ he sought
to put up with boaf widout complaint.
“I shall pronounce no eulogy ober
his remains. While he was anxious to
lib on in order to in joy wattcrmeU
yons, green co n, possums an oildor
luxuries of life, he knowed dat de
sooner he died do longer he could rest

figgers on our sympathy, while at de
same time she doan’ reckon on gittin’
a cent of our money. It ar’ needless
to resolve dat our loss ar’ Brudder
Watson’s gain. He took his chances.
We doan’ know which way he went,
an’ we probably nebber slialk”—De

AN ENJOYABLE TIME.
A Dakota Bootblack’* Idea of Genuine and
Unadulterated Fun.
There is a little fellow hardly big
enough to talk plain who blacks boots
and sells papers in Sioux Falls. He
helps to take care of a sick mother and
doesn’t live very high.
‘•How’s business this summer?'1 wc
asked him the other day.
“Well,” he replied, “there aint uc
such boom iu shinin’ an1 papers that I
can’t handle it.”
“Have much fun?”
“Yes, a good deal. Would have a
heap more if I didn’t have to work
’most all the time. Wisli’t I didn’t
have no more to do than some boys I
know of an1 I'd have a pile more fun
than they do. Ma don’t seem to get no
better but we’re gettin’ ’long pretty
wrell this Binmner.”
“Winter must be the hardest timo
for you?”
“Yes, winter’s tough, fcot we’ll pnll
through if I don’t get sick, an’ I gnesS
I won’t—I ain’t never been sick to last
a-tall yet. B it winter ain’t no good
nohow—’specially when there ain’t
none too much coal in the rouse or a
feller’s clothes are a little thi.s. Say,
if I can get money ’noiigh ahead I’m
goin’ to buy me some clothes for next
winter a inch thickl They'd bo bus’ness,
wouldn’t they, mister?’ ’
“Guess they would. Have yon struck
mv of the picnics this summer?”
I “One.”
“Have a goon time?
“I should say I did! They had cake
in’ pie an’ sauce an’ one thing an’
nother, an’ I jes waded right into it,
you bet! Hid a bully time—made my
self sick an’ laid all night d >nb!ed up
with my han’ son mysto nacb,—I thort
I’d die! Tell you what, mister, but
that picnic v\ fun —wish’t they’d have
’nother!”—Dakota Bell.
No Regard for Her Feelii^s.
An Austin family lias a colored serv
ant that, while very attentive to her
duties, has never been known to give
any body a civil answer. Purely as an
experiment the lady of the house
bought her a new calico dress, and
gave it to her, saying:
“I am glad to have the pleasure,
Matildy, of giving you this dress.”
“Yer mout hab had dat pleasure
long ago, ef yer had any regard fo’
my feelings,” was the gracious reply.
