for the I. W. W. is the only POWER
on earth that can change this hideous
system wherein hogs are housed in
palaces and YOU, THE MOTHERS
OF TIE: USEFUL RACE, in worn

Mothers! if you don't want your

than you have suffered, MAKE
YOUR I()YS and YOUR "OID

ONLY the STICKERS that COUNT.
And, you "idiotics," as Wall of Tioga
rightly styles you, you men (?) in
the forests of the South, why DON'T
you get off your Y. M. C. A-ized knees,
join and stick to the I. W. W. and put
the millions YOU are producing into
food, clothing and shelter for your
mothlers, sweethearts, wives and
daughters instead of turning it over
to the "Parson's" pigs and "Pal's"
flories? Why don't you UNITE and

THIS IS WHAT OUR REPORTER
SAW: Foreman supposed to be
Union men cursing, abusing and driv
ing their "Brother? Unionists" as if
they were convicts on a chaingang.
Union? Foreman passing up Union
men and putting non-union men on
jobs. Union? Foreman driving two
men to do the work that six men ge
nerally do. For instance, one day on
the S. S. Greenbriar our reporter saw
IWO MEN LANDING 50 FOOT
PILING ON DECK, and the foreman
had the nerve to say he "couldn't get
mny men," when it is well known that
there are nearly two men for every
job on the wharves. Another day our
reporter saw a truck of lumber going
Stay Away From Pacific
The boys are scattered all along the
coast and find three men to every job.
The damn railroads are advertising
and bringing more men to the coast
every day. Kindly tell your readers
that they are blankety blank fools to
come westward. There are thousands
of ragged hungry men looking for a
job at any old price that they can
get. The "mission pigs" pick them
up in their destitute condition and
find "jobs" for them. Working in the
beet and bean fields, $1.50 for twelve
hours. They sleep on the ground,
cook their little bite of bacon and cof
fee over a smoky camp fire. The
"swamp bird" of the southeast has
nothing on the worker of the coast.
Hereafter the "Wooden Shoe" will ap
pear as a sixteen page magazine with
cover. The subscription price will be
sixty cents per year, single copies five
cents. Individuals will see that it
goes. Hoping things will look bright

The Voice of The People:-In ac
cordance with the advice of Attorney
W. J. Dalton, defending our Fellow
Workers on trial here, Local 69 has
been awaiting developments calmly,
in order not to jeopardize their
chances in court. Now that the city
election is on in November, the politi
cians are once more assuring us of
their benevolent and respectful atti
tude towards the dignity of Labor,
and their wish to treat the L W. W.
with fairnesk. The preliminary step
showing their desire to appear ex
tremely fair, was taken by suddenly
releasing Fellow-Worker J. F. Mor
gan from custody and dismissing his
case last Thursday without calling
any witnesses whatsoever. Recog
nizing their ruthless disregard of the
workers fundamental rights the city
administration, dropped the case fear
ing further publicity as well as retali
ation at the polls. Regarding the
new street speaking ordinance, the
latest is the permit system. Local 69
appointed Fellow-Workers McCue and
Rowan as a committee to ask Mayor
Park for a permit to speak on 2nd St.
and Commercial. The worthy Mayor
was extremly anxious to inform us of
his liberal ideas, deprecated any de
sire or wish, to see any more disturb
ances, and wished no influx of free
speech fighters whatever. He con
cluded by assuring us of bringing his
influence towards proper arrange
ments etc. So next Monday we will
be informed through the City Council
what that fair treatment consists of.
In order to show their revolutionary
spirit, the dear Comrades in the So
cialist Party, asked for a permit prom
ising to be ever so temperate and
grammatical in language, etc., and has
caused many a smile in this burg.
The A. F. of L., Gompers outfit, has
a petition in calling for two "bulls" to
take charge of street meetings no
matter under what auspices with full
power to arrest the speakers when
ever they expose some fakir or rob
