FRUIT TRUST WAR
APPEAL OF UNITED SEAMEN'S DEFENSE LEAGUE.
Forty-three members of the United Unions are in jail charged with "incit
ing to riot :" three of them under additional charges of "earrying concealed
weap.,ons" and one. Fellow-worker Frank Prego, charged with "shooting at with
intent to kill." All the wounded and imprisoned men are your brothers, and
are held by the master class to be punished for loyalty to you, the workers.
They must bhe defended by any and every means. We appeal to you to
iomlediat-ly rush funds to Secretary (. Perez. at 307 N. Peters street, New
Orle.ans. La.. to aid in the defense.
Yours for the solidarity of the working class.

spraining the poor old Constitution's

order must be preserved, and we are
fully aware that, unlike the fortunate
Trust to whom "God in his inflinite
wisdom" has given (7) 2,000,000 acres
of land under the Central American
flags, a fleet of ships under the British
flag and a charter under the American
flag; we haven't got one flag, much less
two, to dodge behind when, like the
Trust, we laf at law and order. So we
won't laf, for we know by bitter ex
perience that contempt for the Holy
Pocketbook is the blackest treason a
human being can commit in this 'Christ
ian age" and, besides, we don't care to
get in a crummy American jail for
outinizing against the British flag. A
"rifraf American " has to be careful in
these days, my son. There is one con
solation, though the 4th of Ju-lie is near

privilege of again hearing the politicians,
pulpiteers and kept editors slobber about
"the spirit of 1776," telling ris what
Washington, Jefferson, Patrick Henry,
lien Franklin, Andy Jackson and other
undesirable citizens did to the British
lion in the "glorious days long ago gone
dodo." Yes, that's some consolation,

"dirty foreigners" and "rifraf Ameri
