Labor Fakers Trying to Cause Race Troubles on River Front by Denying Colored Workers Their Rightful Share of Work, Half and Half. "Union Foremen" Working Overtime to See Who Can Drive Workers Hardest and Please Bosses Most. 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 Coast! 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.

This means that in a 10 hour day a man is forced to do about 20 hours work. This is what the capitalist calls "EF FICIENCY" and the I. W. W. calls MURDER. But YOU like it, so stick to it, and DONT join the NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL UNION OF MARINE TRANSPORT WORKERS OF THE I. W. W., 'cause it's out for an eight hour day and dont believe in "Union contract labor." This aint all our reporter saw; he will see more in succeeding issues. Salt Lake News. Salt Lake City, Utah, Sept. 21, 1913. 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 ber.
