These barracks mass meetings
have been held by the union to sec

sent a man has to live there to
hold his job. The governmen is ap
parently afraid to face the test of
something about it. A week later
telegrams were sent to the candi
dates. Most of them replied with
elaborate promises and statements
of past performance in protesting
air, the swinging ladders, roman
rings, and all sorts of aerial rig

open commpetitive basis. Protests
finally reached the President him

him that "conditions in barracks

tr^Mumy the 1res
ident affidavit from George Try on,
president of the machinists' union,
who was fired for the report on
Fort Peeck which he made at the
convention of the State Federa
tion of Labor. Even after the facts
reached the president (presumably,
or at least his office) no action
was visible. Hence the decision to
picket a mess hall by way of für
ther protest.
Some time ago the mass meet
mg sent letters to the candidates
requesting them to help in gaining
publicity for barracks conditions,
especially in the daily press. J. F.
O'Connor and H. L. Mrury did
to them in return that protests
had been made for months, and
that real publicity would make
protests effective. A statement to
the press was again requested.
O'Connell, Sparling, and Mike Hol
land seem to have done their best.
Monaghan is mentioning Fort
Peck in speeches but has made no
re-ply to our request for a state
ment to daily press. Holt, flatly
refuses to make such a statement.
Murray and Ayers have dodged it.
It was the sentiment .of a mass
meeting that Holt, Ayers, Monag
han, or Murray at least are prom
inent enough to get a statement in
the daily papers, and that would
do more than anything else to get
the conditions remedied.
So far the only result of three
months pf protest has been to get
a committee appointed to investi
gate at some future date. Federal
Union 20192, which has been spon
soring the mass meetings, posted
a notice which read in part, "The
investigation is likely to be a
whitewash unless we keep bring
ing pressure to bear. If the meet
mgs continue to be well attended
and continue to take action we
can prevent the investigation from
being a whitewash.

TWIN CITY LABOR
BANQUET NELSON
MINNEAPOLIS, July 11—Geo
rge A. Nel*#jn, Socialist candidate
for Vice-President of the United
States, was tonight the guest of
honor at a banquet held under the
auspices of the Minneapolis and
St. Paul locals at the Labor Lyce
um. Over three hundred Socialists
and sympathizers heard a fine pro
gram of speeches and entertain
ment. Besides Nelson, other speak
ers were Carl Pemble, state secre
tary of the Socialist Party, Myles
Dunne, the editor of the North
west Organizer, the organ of the
General Drivers Union, acting as a
toastmaster and Farrell Dobbs,
Secretary-Treasurer of G. D. U
574.
•i
The speech of Nelson was the
official opening of the Socialist
campaign in Minnesota. Present
indications point to an unusually
successful campaign this year as
thousands of disillusioned Farmer
Laborites, liberals, and radicals
come to the Socialist Party for the
way out of the capitalistic chaos,
the other parties no adequate ex
the other parties no adequate ex
pression of their discontent; the
Farmer-Labor party of Minnesota
is perhaps the best of its kind
likely to appear on the political
horizon, yet the meager reforms it
gets for the workers does not ev
en compare well with the reforms
granted by the Democrats. In a
decaying economy, and that is
what ours is, no party but a revol
utionary one can give any gains
to the workers.
