CI-HINiSE MUTINY, THREE
OI CREW MAY DIE.
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.

A Few Don'ts.
By W. M. WTTr.
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. W. W., and
oiontrol a sitlation over which you are
ri.lhtfulll the masters.
,Don't fail to be a Man. It imust

Merryville Notes.
MnaYrvua, LA., July 14, 1913.
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. W.'s from that Oregon
Merryvillk.
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? Well, some day soon,
you are going to murder one Ferrar too

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.
