NHEwPr r, T NEW., VA., July 12. Fourtien (_Ch 11.inll1en employed as slitkers on the British steamship Nor itiman \loaar'h,. bound from New Orleans to Ilamrnhurg. ivere arrested here late to day as a riesult of a mutiny on the steam ier Thursday. The chief engineer, boatswain and third engineer of the ship were prob ably fatally in.jured in a battle between the utihineers and the loyal lmembers of the crew. The second mate and one of the mutineers also were injured. ELraged because one of their com panio ns was put i irons for an offense, the Chinese first attacked the third engi neer. The noise of the struggle brought the remainder of the crew to the en gine room, and after a hard struggle the mutineers finally were overcome. The mutiny occurred about 180 miles off this port. l'nited States immigration officials arrested the Chinese when the ship ar rived here to-day. They are being held 1(ler $7000 bond for deportation. COMMENT. The above press dispatch shows how rotten are conditions on these Coolie manned "British" ships. The United Fruit Company is reported to have se cured 138 Chinese on the Pacific Coast to aot as strike-breakers against the caimien's I pions in New Orleans as thev adnhit their nigger scabs are a <lanli poor inve"stt'nnt. If the report is true. "e h'ipe thle rebels nl th le Coiast ha\- Sitn to it that a nice hunch of ('hinm'se rIebels are in the crew of 138 strike-breakers. Keep your eyes open rebs, and if the Fruit I logs maust have scabs see that they get the right kind. Los 1Nechos de UN Cobarde Jl ,,.he1,. l'hili1i F'errari. dc S. i',t,.rs v 1)i ianiinil Sts.

Fellow-workers, whenever it becomes expedient or imperative that you change geographical position and you go to same othe r sawmill where the masters are merciful enough to allow you the use of their tools for the purpose of producing wealth for them don't complain about anything Don't express on opinion relative to indlustrial matters. Don't talk, but let your tongue dcea'e to the roof of your mouth. Have all the ideas you "want, but don't air any of them. Don 't even look the least bit serious. That might indicate that you had the intelligence of a gnat or a mosquito hawk. D)on't forget that all they want on their soil is "''brush-monkey's," "''bone heads,'.' "suckers" and regular dam D)on't forget that the despotic laws of the so-called State of Louisiana pale into insignific;ance when comnpared to tihe irhles tanl regulations of the Imperial Sawlog ' onbine. )on 't forget that their authority c.,lilses any yet known upon this planet. )Don't forget that it lies within their jiurisdict.ion to chase you out of town at dead ; of night and it extends to (en straping you to, a log and tearing you to pliecs. )Don,'t forget that this dirty wvork is done mosIItly by hired thugs, ex-members ,f the norking class. They are a disgrace to the producing class an,] living monuments of shame to tllir ancestors. lIon 't forget that they are louet r than lh, hi g that thrivces in the mire or the serpent tlhat erawls upon his belly. ..Don't negleet to organize yourselves in oXE lI; IUNION. the I.

Everything is quiet in this neck of the woods. The Cooler is full of nig gers as a result of a free-for.Ull-gfht among them Saturday night. It seemsm the authorities resent the niggers taking posuseuion of Front street and fighting and eursiing among the white women, They lb.at up ,white men and run them taut of tou n to make room for thee. amein niggUrs, Now they have outlived their ts'efulnmess it s)ems, and they are IlriHn them and putting other men in their places, and firing them every chance they get. Better stop, niggers that helped break the Merryville strike, and look at what you did for the Bons and then look at what he has done to you. And he is going to do some more. Ile will starve your wife and babies to death if it is to his interest if it puts any rocks in his pocket. lie simply uses you to further his own ends, then when that end has been accomplished, out you go. Women get in line everywhere; get your litttle red honorary membership card-that tells to the world that you do your own thinking and don't depend on that bonehead husband to do it for you. Women can get money out of men in many ways. Give entertainments, ice cream parties, pound suppers, anything to get the crowd together then they will, do the rest and be sure to have plenty of literature of the union brand laying around. By this means alone the women could pay for that Printing ]'ress and stop the mouth of Covington Hlall on that subject at least. But we want him to be with us on Labor Day in Merryville, and, if he don't get that press and get it off his mind, he may rebel. Everybody begin thinking about that Barbecue and speaking in the good old way in Merryville on Labor Day. We wailt everybody to be with us, even to the "Citizens' League." Yours to win. FREDONIA STEVENSON. Marshfield Outrage. A clipping from that putrid, belly-' t.rawling sheet called the "Coos Bay Times" is before us. It glorifies the action of the drunken mob of cock roac.hes and Lumber Trust pups, who, on June 25th, "deported" Secretary Ed~rworth. Organizer Everest and two other I. W.

Keep it up. my masters, but just the same we are getting damned tired of your lawlessness. 1)o you remember how all Europe trembled when your hellions murdered Francisc.o Ferrer?

College Scabs "Coming" Ever singe the strike, or lockout, be. gan, the Fruit Trust has been "threaten ing" to import all sorts of scabs to break a strike the "did not exist." Bodine A Co., failing them at the oinaial hour, they sooured the South and snuoeeeded in herding enuf niggers (they could get no negrues here) to keep their tubs run ning behind time., These "painfully green" niggers they threw on the ships despite the fNet that this is the hurrioe,. season, and the safety of passengers was thereby endangered. The niggers proving a costly Invest ,ment, It seems, and liable to be more costly in the way of damage suits, the Trust announced that it was gathering a crew of Chinese Coolies in London to break the strike, and that its British flag would protect them against the U. 8. contract labor laws, while its Ameri can flag would protect its lawlessness at the wharves of Nyw Orleans. Then 138 Chinese were "on the way" from the I'acific Coast to break 'the strike that "did not exist." Then yesterday, the 16th., its kept "White Supremacy" papers announced that the Fruit Hogs had reams of applications from the low est of all scabs, the College bred degen crates, only three of whom have shown up to date, however, and these were seemingly too exhausted to leave Pana mna. What breed of degenerates are "com ing" next we don't know and don't care. In the meantime the British Unions are getting into the fight and it will yet be shown to the Fruit Trust that only men can man a modern ship. Let all the Seamen in all the ports of the world join in this struggle to drive the Pirates of Profit from the Seven Seas and thus help establish the world wide INDUSTRIAL DEMOCRACY. Peabody's Spirit Still Abroad. We are having some trouble with the police. We held a street meeting and before the speaker got on the box; two bulls came up to me and informed me not to sell or give away papers on the street, stating that there is an ordinance prohibiting us from sell ing our literature. I sold them anyway. But to-day I can get no one to get on the box. We had a special meeting at the hall, reently, and I was instructed to communicate with other locals in re gards to this trouble. The boys are wait ing here to find out thesentiment, to see how much support we can get of ofher locals. Yours for the O. B. U. II. C. SHERMAN, Secty., Local 26. LATER.
