Bearsthe Union Label, a^guarantee of excellence that^the working man cannot af^^ford to overlook.
Gans^ Klein
Kila,Mont. Oct. 12, 1905.^Montana News: Enclosed is^money order for one dollar for^which you will please extend my^subscription to the News one more^year.
Wishingyou the greatest success^in your exposure of graft in high^places, I remain,
Mostsincerily yours,^A. R. BIGGS.
Specialefforts have been made in^the last few weeks to organize a So^^cialist sentiment among the smelter-^men of East Helena. It is in these^working class centers that the^strength of the revolution must be^developed. These working slaves^that are so cowed by the two stikes^that they lost, that they don't dare^carry on a union of respectable pro^^portions, must be taught that the^strength of the working class is in^the conquest (,f political power.^Patiently and persistently we must^put this lesson before them.
)ne street meeting was held at^East Helena several weeks ago. We^already have a local there. Thurs^^day and Friday evening of last week^we engaged the ^ ^dd Fellow's hall,^and held two meetings. Comrade^Hank Rutherford (the big fellow^thev call the ^mayor^ of East Hel^^ena 1 contributed the six dollars for^the second night out of his own^pocket. Comrades Walsh, Craham^and lla/lett went out to hold the^meeting. The hall was almost full^the first night. Some literature was^sold and two more members added.^The second evening we hail to com^pete with a village Improvement^Club social. Hut while our and^sience was smaller, results were evi
dent.The audience was remark^^ably attentive, $ 1.40 worth of litera^^ture sold, and the smelter boys hung^around after the meeting and talked^as though serious matters were be^^fore them. One copy of the ^Evol^^ution of Man^ was sold. Whenever^the working class begin to read such^literature as this the superstitutions^and shackles of the ages begin to^fall from their minds, and they be^^gin to get upon the firm and beauti^ful basis of scientific securety. When^the working class does this, they can^never more be enslaved by capital^istic blood suckers and despots.^In fact we gauge the status of our^movement, as we do that of an in^^dividual, by the scientific books that^it buys and reads.
$6.45collections was taken.^Two weeks from Sunday night when^the shift changes, a meeting of the^local is to be held at Comrade Louis^Hansen's home. There will be a^reelection of officers,, and business^of the local to be attended to, Com^^rades Haur and Willett will go out^from Helena to help them and make^short speeches. Any other Helena^comrades that can go should make^an effort to do so. The Socialists^must pull together and help weak^locals. The progress of the revolu^^tion is their work just as much as it^is that of the secretary and organ^izers. All must work, and they^must work at the actual party work.
Thesixth waril is another point^of consentration for Socialist work.^We must focus our energies here^this winter, and try and persuade^these railroad working men to with^^draw their political support from the^grafters and Hein/e tickets, and put^it upon that of the party that repre^^sents their class interests.
Arrangementshave been made^with the managers of the hall to let^us have it at $2.50 per night, for a^series of meetings there this winter,^and every eftort must be made In^make these meetings a success.

Chicago,Oct. 14. ^ Alarmed bv^the rumors of activity among the^anthracite coal operators John Eahy,^T. I). Nichols, and W. H. Dettrv,^leaders of the mine workers, who^have been here for a week, will re^^turn to Pennsylvania.

LaborFakirs Condemn I. W. W.
Pittsfield,Mass., Oct. 12.^The^state federation of labor has adopted^resolutions condemning Socialism^in general and the Socialistic organ^^ization known as the Industrial^Workers of the World, which was^formed in Chicago in July, and^headed by Eugene V. Debs.
Theresolution against the In^^dustrial Workers of the World char^^acterized the formation of the or^^ganization as ^the most despicable^attack yet made upon the life of our^national body.^ and it was resolved^that ^we resist by all lawful means^this encroachment upon our right^^ful territory namely, the labor world^of the United States.
Theresolutions met with a storm^of protests from the Socialist dele^^gates, but were passed by an over^^whelming labor faking vote.
ComradeDoc Monroe, formerly^of Storrs, has located at Orofino,^Idaho, and in a letter to this office^tells of the great growing Socialist^sentiment in that state.
