La., Please insert the following: "The I. W. W. ioeals in Portland are not connected with any free speech league and are not calling for any assistance fti nancial or otherwise, letter follows." B. E. NIssoN, Secty. CAUSE OF FIGHT. Portland, Ore., July 20, 1913. Fellow-worker--You have probably read in the papers about the free speech situation here and wonder why we re mained quiet, and a few words of ex planation is needed. First. There was a strike of cannery workers (women) and Mrs. Schwab of the S. L. P., was the only experienced woman speaker at hand; this gave the S. L. P. a chance to take a prominent part. Some of the strikers appplied to the Socialist party for speakers, and that brough Tom Burns of the S. P. into the strike. We made no attempt to get control of the strike, becausme, as we saw it, such an attempt could have had no better result than to create discord and confusion in the ranks of the strikers. Some of our members gave the strikers active assistance, although they did not approve of the manner in which the strike was conducted; they did not rep resent the locals, nor did the locals try to restrain them from taking part in the strike. They acted as individuals only. The picketing at the cannery resolved itself into a continuous street meeting, and the authorities finally stopped these meetings on the grounds that the speak ers used indecent language. Some of our members who attended these meetings ray that the speakers did lay themselves open to that charge. The Portland newspapers and authori ties were unanimous in crediting the I. W. W. with all the strike meetings that were held in front of the cannery and in other parts of the town, although we had very little to do with it. This shows that there is a deliberate at tempt to use the strike meetings as a pretext for stopping our street meetings and possibly to drive us out of town. We did not swallow the bait, but kept off the street, with the result that the police have broken up some alleged I: W. W. meet- s Ings in which the I. W. W. had no part, t iandl clubl,ed a number of quite law- i abiding citizens. About 100 people au have been arrested, among whom were ti perhaps a dozen of our members. 1O There can be no doubt that the police have received instructions to break up E the [. W. W1 in this town, and will s( force us into a fight before they quit; N but we are trying to pdstpone that fight w. until next winter, or at least until the police have made a few more blunders. rn We are not in need of any assistance at present. W, will let. you know when we d, need help. W.v are not connected with any free ha speech league, and it is not at all likely d1 that we will be. When we take up the ,ii fight it will be as an I. W. W. fight str straight. it Yours for Industrial Freedom. <;I B. E. NSrssoN, Secty. s Note-When we re'ad in the Assas sinating l'rer·s that Portland's ma.yor is had suppressed all street speaking be- th cause Tom Burns and I. W. W. speaker had said the Red Flag would soon rceplace, the Stars and Swipes on the county courthouse, we were under the impres- Cf Seamen's Strike Off The strike of the Seamen against the Fruit Trust has been declared off, by the Saiiors' Union or Monday night and by the Marine Transport Workers on Friday evening of last week. he The strike began on June 2d, and ot ended on July 25th, lasting less than me two months, but in that short time three ti- workers lost their lives, three were bad ly, and 10 to 15 more or less seriously wounded by the police and stoolpigeons of the trust, white seventy odd were jailed on trumped-up charges of differ ent degrees, the most serious being that Ly of "shooting at with intent to commit h murder" (of police sergeant Dunn) placed against Felow-worker Frank Prego, whose trial takes place on Thurs day, the 31st. All things considered, the breaking if of the strike was a phyrric victory for d the Trust, for all the Seamen now see that it was only by pittihg worker it against worker that the Trust was able to even temporarily take back the ad t vance in wages the workers forced out o of the Fruit Plunderbund a year ago by, as "Captain" Rose put it, taking them unawares. That's always the way to do it--butt the Boss when he's got his breeches down. As matters now stand, the building np of the Marine Transport Workers I'nion of'the I. W. W. is the only hope of the Seamen, for this Union is the only organization the Bosses have not been able to wreck, and because it is founded on INIIERENT POWER. TIIE SOLIDARITY OF TIHE RANK AND FILE. LATER Prego & Kundson Discharged. "Can't Understand." "Mother Jones says that all the time she was in the Bull Pen, she did not have a bel to lay on. Nothing but an old lounge. She said that she could not eat the foodl that was given her. And just think, she, spending here 81st birth day in the Bull Pen, and the American working class, doing almost nothing to 'hange conditions that tolerates such things. She said that day and night there was an armed guard. outside her dlwr', she said that she can't understand how, any mother coul raise a son that would hiold a gunlll over an old woman like her." NINA LANE MclctsIDE.. siin that there was somuthliitig fishy in the report of the trouble, so we made little cornllent. for we couldn't imagine an i. \V. W. oirganizer who would care three hoots in hurrahl as to what fl;t flew over the countlJ courtIhous.. And ieven as we smelt it, so it was fishy.
