McGovern's veto of the re apportionment bll passed by the Wis consia legislature is just one mroe proof that the capitalist pollttoan, be he reformer or standpatter, hates and tears the Uoclalists more than he tears or hatep any thing else n this world or the next. This bill. In the first place, so jug gled some of the assembly districts of Milwaukee County as to destroy all natural boundaries by Amits of popu lation. And this was always so done as to make some Sociallst districs unsafe In the future. It was In fact a case of Antl-Social 1st gerrymandering. But after it had passed both houses of legslature, still the Antl-oolalists were not satlsfled. They brought the greatest possible pressure to bear upon Gov. Mo Govern to veto the bilL Gov. McGovern is a "Progressve." and one of the fairest and meet sin cere of his crowd. Yet so far is even the most fair-minded "Progressive" under the control of the gang with whom he trains, that the governor was driven to veto the bill. And then the motive for the veto was elearly shown. The various hard ships which the reapportionment caused were not remedied by the eglis lature Only the senatorial districts of Milwaukee County were torn up. They were so redjusted that as one r& publlcan srnator frankly aid, "the Socialists were sure of but one dis. trict." That was what the veto was for, that was what the whole fuss was about, so to arrange the senatorial districts that only one bocialist oen ator can sit In* the next Wisconsin legislature! And then the bill, as amended passed both houses. It will no doubt get the governor's siglature. Nuw ad this shows that when the Socialists want a square deal, the Pro gressives are no more to be relied upon than the most hide-bound Standpatters. And this is nothing surprising to those who know what nomic determinism means. The Progressives or Insurgents stand for middle class, not worklng clas, Interests. And as soon as the workingman gets that firmly fixed in his mind, LaFollette an d Roosevet will get no more votes that rightfully belong to the workingmen's party, the *ooladst party. . The Milwaukee capitalist papers re cently gave another example of their shameless untruthfulness.

Los Angeles Cal.July 15-Oct 10 will mark the opening of the trial of John J. and James B. MeNamara on a harge of murder IL ooaneetlon with the fire and e osion In l s Angeles Times building, which ocured Oct.. The fact that the date was not set as early as leptl Is point in favor of the defense as it was believed Judge Bordwell would favor the proesoution which favors an early date in order to hold the public sentiment which has been with them until the recent ex posure ofthe brutality in the treat ment of Mrs. Emma McManisal and the disclosure of the thug taotics of Burnas and his brutal "operatives". The McNamara brothers will stadd trial in a court where the officias of that Institutlon have been parties to the conspiracy against them. Aeist ant District Attorney J. W. Ford who is taklng the lead in the case, owing to the Incompetence and Inefficiency of his chief, is accused of perjury in con nection with the requisition papers. W. J. Burns, the detective who worked up the case against the men and who will be active In the prosecution is under a felony indictment in Indiana, charged with kidnapping John J. Mo Namara. The fact that these men should not be permitted to conduct the prose. outton was brought out strongly by Clarence Darrow who, in his first speech in the trial said: "The law has been twisted and perverted and by perjury, fraud and violence John J McNamara has been brought Into California where he has been Indicted on charges other than those mention ed In the falsely acquired requisition and the whole Illegal proceedure is abhorrent to all sense of Justice". In his flagellation of the district attorney and his assistants Darrow did not mince words, the men who con spired with Burns to viollate the ex tradition laws were given a foretaste of what was coming to them when the trial should actually open. In at tempting to defend his action In con nection with the kidnaping Ford made the statement that the governor of It Is needless to say that Comrade Seidel said nothing of the sort, either in New York or anywhere. But on the basis of this barefaced falsehood the capitalist papree build up big scare heads on their front pages, and funny paragraphs to ridicule the Socladsts. All this with the intention of disheart ening the Socialist sympathiser who reads only the daily papers. Another proof that Milwaukee needs a Socialist daily. IC. I Thomas. Foller I ploslons Indangers Life. A large number of boiler explosions are taking place on the railroads ad over the country, Indeed, the increase In boiler explosions within the past six months is very alarming, and shows a cndition of afairs that is very dan gerous not only to the life and limb of railroad workers but to the travel ling public as well, some months there have been an average of one boller exl l'osn a week, west of the Missouri river. One boiler explosion In Montana re cently, resulted In the death of three men, who were blown out of the cab of the engine, the fireman being thrown over the top of thirteen box cars. The newspapers are not pub lishing anything about these explos ions, The causes of the I oiler ep :ndlons are in most instances owing to the railroads cutting down the expenses on repairs to locomotives. For more than a year railroads have been trying to make great showings in profits and dividends, and to this end, operating expenses have been re duced to the lowest possible figure. The employee in the repair shops have worked short time to the extent of - per cent, and large numbers have been laid off, and In some instances the re pair shops have been cosed for months at a time, and the work of keeping the engines in repairs entlr> ly negleoted, this has resulted in a large number of boiler explosions, which are aompnanled with two or three lives belng lost and a number of men, njured.

This is the first InUtim atloU that Oov. Marshall was a party to the Burns plot. Judge Watter Bordwell who will preside in the case refused to set aside the Indlctments or allow the grand jury to be subpoenaed into court to show that they were not biased and prejudkoed against the men and again st all labor organizations. The de teae declares that they have proven that several members of the jury were officials or members of labor hating organisations and that at least one of the men was in the employ of H. O. Otei at the time or for a long time before the gas explosion and fire destroyed the old death trap. Harri man. Darrow and other lawyers for the defence put the judge In a nar row corner and forced him to fill the record with error n hise decisions In the preiminary steps. Los Angeles Socialists and labor union men made It so warm for the city council in their consideration of the proposition to turn over more of the city's money to Burns that It was decided to return somethlng over $9,000 to the city treasury. Mayor George Alexander wanted to pay that amount to Burns saying that the de tective had spent more than that In his pursuit of the alleged dynamiters. The Steel Trust, it was pointed out. Is simply able to carry on Its own cases and should be made to bear the burden of the expenses of the opera. tives who seek to destroy labor unions. Four hundrd workingmen have been arrested and most of them con fined In Jail. despite the fact only four of them have been found guilty of violating the anti-picket ordinance now on the books at the request of labor hating M. and M.

Senator Jerry McCarthy of Gallhttn attending to the railroad companies interests. The bill was drafted by the repre sentatives of railroad unions, headed by Frank Fisher, a locomotive en giner from Livingston. Senator McCarthy went to the representatives of the unions and Informed them that If the railroad men would conceed to have an amendment made to the bill making the railroad men liable for damages that might arise In certain cases, he would have the bid recon. eider *.t and passed. The railro..S r en did not care to place themselves In a position to be held liable for accidents and refused the kind services of Sen ator Mc Carthy. McCarthy Is a coal mine owner and operator and perhaps his great solid- t tude for the railway corporations' Interest may arise from rebates in coal shipments, but be that as it may, Mc Carthy stood by the Hill-.Morgan In terests.

An appeal had been taken to the district court, which affirmed the findings of the lower court. This latter decision precipitated a genera( strike for a few days as a protest, and the strikers were persuaded that the case would be advanced rapidly to a decision In the higher court and given to understand that a stay of excutlon would be had in the meantime. But they were only promises. Have you signed the petition for the seferendum on the Donohue militia aMwT Let every union send in a protest to Senators Dixon and Myers at once.

Just recently the district attorney prose auted effective a olS-union man for assaulting a union picket of the local cigar maker's union. Is every respect the Socialsts Serve the working class. On their behalf the city council appropriated $10,000 for the use of the anti-tuberculosis commission, and peased an ordinance prohibiting the use of the common drinking cup in public places. The -ity needs a municipal electric light. ing plant, and the Sooialista voted an appropriation of $3,000 for pretlmin. ary work. This lighting plant would have been finished long ago. were it not for the numerous injunctions Is sued against the city dminlistration by sapitalistlc Judges Who are the gen. unine friends of the public schools? Socialists: and they voted for an is sue of $47.000 of school bonds. Likewise are our public servants active in the county administration. Supervisor Hensing (Socialist) lately introduced a resolution in the county board Instructing the district attorney to prosecute former oounty clerks for embesalemeat of public monny. Super visor Heath (Socialist) introduced . resolution calang on the district attor ney to give an opinion as to the legal Ity of the county board giving finan cial aid to Impoverished families un able to provide for their children, in stead as heretofore depriving the par. eats of their children by sending therr to the Home of Dependent Ch:l*lren a place naturady Void of loving care. This resolution is a slap on the wrist of those liars or ignoramuses who constantly cry that the Socialists want to disrupt the family. Socialists will make the county pris on a place of correction instead of punishment. The county board has accordingly bought a large farm where offenders will be out in the open air raising vegetabl.s etc . for their own consumption. The prison ers wlA be segregated according to their degree. So everything is mov inl in Milwaukee towards a better and more pleasant city for all concerned. Oscar Rademaker.

Scab herder Travis has not man. hood enough to order the arrest of Mr. Parchen, or any representative of the Parchen Drug company. The boy claims he would have lost his job if he went to the encampment, and the Donohue Militia law expressly states. that any corporation victimiing or preventing any militia from being em ployed is subject to a fine of from $25 to e500. or from 10 days to six months In jail With the Donohue militia law in force we find the braggadocio scab herding bosses taeking back bone enough to cause the arrest of the re presentatives of a corporation, but. let their petty, brass button, gold brald spite out on a kid. Parchen Drug co , is a very influ ential firm in the state. and has a large pull, and It would not do to ar rest Mr. Parchen. It looks as if Travis like other military nrllies, is too great a coward to cause the arrest of any official of the Parchen Drug company. SHERIFF ROUNDS tP. The oficers of the militia have hnad pretty strenuous times in getting their commands to Helena, scab herding Is becoming unpopular in Montana, and the boys are getting wise to the fact that it is to protect the Interests of Morgan and Rocketellow that they art, being trained, and not to protect their homes, or the liberties they enjoy. Company s, of Miles City, had a number of members that wished to I evade attendance at the encampment. The sheriffs office In Custer county had to be put Into service to force the mena to join their companies. A mem ber of company E, when he saw the deputy sheriff coming, mounted a horse and rode as fast as horseflesh eseld earry him for the foot hills. the deputy sheriffs got horses and pursued the fleeing militlaman-who had seen the errors of his ways and desired to evade military service,. the militiaman was captured. take . back to Miles City, turned over to his company officers and is now doing his stunts at Fort Harrison. One militlaman who is a business man in a city in eastern Montana., asked to be excused from attending the e.ncampment, on the grounds that his partner Was sick and if he came t , Helena. it would be necessary for him to close up his establishment. :~o excuse was taken and the buslnes· man had to come to IIckena to practie. for hell,-as General Grant called it.

The Montana News is the only paper in the Rocky Mountain states that advocates the right of labor at all times and in all places. Regardless of what the grelvences may be we stand by the strikers in the struggle of the union against the corporations. In more than one instance we have turned public opinion in favor of the strikers, and in more than one city and camp have we made the union label respected. The Montana News is supported exclusively by the workers and the profits from Job work of the labor organizations of Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah. Perhaps your union has not required the assistance of any paper in times of trouble, but rest assured, should you organization ever become involved in a strike; the Montana News will be found on your side and ready to give all the assistance that press and pen can do to win the strike. A labor press should be built up, and we need your assistance will you send us your order for the printing of your union?

The Donohue militia law contains a clause that no militia man shad do voluntary military duty in the state and can only do military duty when called upon by the governor. Yet on the Fourth of Ju.y in the city of Olendive, Major Doc. Donohue had his company do police duty, and up to date we have failed to learn of Governor Norris ordering the midtla to do police duty in the state on July fourth. It appears that a lot of the pin headed, gold braided awash-bucklers in Montana have a great desire to parade in public, bull-dozing and com manding kids, even if they violate the laws, imagining that In this way they are getting the eye of the general public and gaining the admiration of the ladies. But, who likes a scab herder any how? Have you signed the petition for the referendum on the Donohue Militia inw ?
