Aberdeen, (\Vasi.), Aug. 30.- -The West ('oast lumlberrlcie's Associatioi yesterday ordered a c rtailment of one-third in the output of the mills be ginning Septemni er 1, owing to the dullness in the luniber market. Thir ty mills were relpresented, situated in Western Wash ingt(n and Portland. Most of the mills will work only four days a week in order that the output may be reducedi to thirty million feet a day.

Merryville Happenings. By Old Rush. Merryville, La., Sept. 5, 1913.-La bor Day Barbecue was a grand suc cess. Everybody enjoyed the speak ing. Jay Smith and P. Eastman were the leading speakers of the day. Ev erybody felt safe. They had Gus Martin to come down from D)eRidder and help Kinney Reid Jr. handle the crowd. Mr. Martin got so absorbed in Smith's speech that you could have run an ox wagon over him. He was heard to say that Smith made the ablest speech that he ever heard. The A. M. Lumber Co ran their mill that day and told the scabs if any of them went to the barbecue they would discharge thiem next day. So the slaves olbeyed their master. The (;. C. L. joined the "Owls" on that day, all but Dr. Knight and he was afraid of his job. BI. Sharver is a contractor here and he handles a few carpenters. He said to Dick Phillip Monday morning: "l'ncle Dick you have always made me a good faithful hand and, if you will work today and not go to the din ner, I will give you a quart of good wliskey in addition to your regular pay. But Uncle Dick couldn't give up his liberty and manhood for a bait thrown out by Mr. Sharver. So poor Dlick was canned Tuesday, but he is a man and a UNION MAN. The readers will remember that a certain concern offered a big reward for John Walston's scalp.

Says the "American Lumberman": ei "Reports from Louisiana say that the activities of the Brotherhood of tl Timber Workers, an affiliation of the Industrial Workers of the World, have a ceased to be a serious menace in the h, timber and mill operating districts of al the South, and that there is no longer ti expectation of the organization being g a power in the southern lumber belt. tl Artl.ur Emerson, president of the '5 brotherhood, has departed from the W Lake Charles (La.) district and his te departure is looked upon as conclusive in admission that the riot and bloodshed 11 tactics of the union have proved a fail- B ure. At present 90 per cent of the ti leaders and members of the strike gi movement are working in sawmill pi centers of southwestern Louisiana, or el have left that territory entirely. th A few months ago the American x Lumberman, in describing fully the h| organization of the Industrial Work ers of the World and what it was do ing in different countries in promoting discontent among workers and preaching militarism in their dis putes with employers, gave warning that mill operators in the South 1' MUST USE A "STRONG HAND" IN F' )EALING WITH THE MOVEMENT I'. AND THAT IT SHOULD BE SUB- 41 I)UED IN ITS INFANCY. SUCH A II POLICY WAS ADOPTED AND THE .1. STRUGG;(;LE BETWEEN EMPLOY- I ERS ANI) THE EMPLOYEES WHO I BELON(;ED TO THE UNION RE- '1 SULTEI) IN THE COST OF SEVER AL LIVES AND MUCH PROPERTY, but victory is now conceded to the mill operators. This victory is due in a large measure to the timely warn ing of the American Lumberman." Beyond the caps we have made in the above article, we t[ink comment on same hardly necessary. The "American Lumberman" is the fore most trade journal of the Lumber Kings, so when it coolly informs the sl world that a Grabow riot was intend- S. ed from the beginning, we guess the world will know what to think when this same sheet and all other Lum ber Trust papers raise the howl of "anarchy," against the I. W. W. As a matter of historic fact, the Brother hood of Timber Workers was NOT affiliated with the I. W. W. at the time the "American Lumberman" gave this "strong hand" advice and there was much doubt that it would so affiliate. It was not until Hay wood and the editor of The Voice at tended the B. of T. W. convention held in Alexandria, La., in the Spring of 1911 that it was finally decided by the Brotherhood. The constitution of the Brotherhood further, not only guaranteed the "holy institution of private property," but it had a pray er or ritual un nearly every page, yet this did not keep the Christian Lum her Kings from using, the "strong hand" on it from the very beginning ((',oatiniued on 'age 4).
