Labor's Protest Against
N. 0. States.
It is announced that the general
strike of the textile workers of the
country, in protest against the
treatment of Ettor and Giovannit
ti now in prison at Lawrence, Mass,
will be declared before the end of
this month. There has already
been many well-considered pro.
tests from outsiders, including
such men as Professor Taussig of
Harvard University and Jacob
Loeb of the Rockefeller Institute.
The circumstances are as fo'
lows: Several months ago, at the
time of the Lawrence mill strike,
a woman was acoidentilly killed in
a riot, probably by a police bullet.
The two principal leaders of the
strike were Ettor and Giovannitti,
who were miles away from the
scene of the riot, and many per
sons who followed the events of
the strike said their influence was
on tlhe Itle of order. They were
arrested, however, on the charge
of accessory before the fact be
cause they were the leaders of the
strike, and were, therefore, held
indirectly responsible for the kill
ing of the woman. There has
been no attempt on the part of t he
proscution to connect these men
directly with the murder, but
nevertheless they were put in jail,
denied bail,, and are still there
pending trial, and this trial has
been indefinitely delayed.
"In view of the fact that men of
standing in the community, such
as Professors Taussig and Loeb,
should have taken the stand they
have,' says the New York Glove,
"and that in the mind of all fair.
minded observers uutside of Law
rence and the milltowns, where
passion runs high, these two men
have been unfairly and oppres
sively treated by the Lawrence au
thorities, the general strike order
ed as a protest by the defense com
mitten is comprehensive if illogi.
cal. The men feel that they have
not been fairly met by the em
ployers, who, in their opiniou, con
trol the courts."
It will occur to any fair-minded
persoei that to arrest two labor
leadlers as indirectly responsible
for the killing of the woman in the
Lawrence strike, whale arresting
n(, millowners, was sn act of par
tIality, and as such extremely un
wise, because everybody who
knowse anything about tihe strike
knows that the millowners were as
responsible for it as the labor
leadeis. As a matter of fact, the
responsibility for the strike itself
does not rest with the labour lead
ere, tecause the men and women
walked out of the mills without
being ordered to do so.
On the other hand, much may
be said about the responsibility of
tihe miillowners for the bad condi
tine and the starvation wages al.
muitted generally. To arrest strike
leaders, keep them in jail for
months, refuse bail and delay
trial, and do nothing to the mill
owners seem on the face of it so
unfair that it is sure to hurt the
cause of the employers.
