of the fa.t that with the limited amount
of m1,en remaining to do pic'ket duty,
Itc., it was impossible to take care of
the vatl territory whic.h was in thA
striiKe zoIne. This dwindling away of
nII'l who are on strike to A]ter regions
is ,one of the most rious dra bha'ks
therei' is to strikes of mligratory workers
,of the West.

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 "carrying concealed
weapons'' 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 be defended by any and every means. We appeal to you to
immrnedia y rush funds to Secretary G. l'erez, at 307 N. Peters street, New
Orleans, .a., to aid in the defense.
Yours for the solidarity of the working class.

HUMANE FRUIT TRUST.
It is reported that the United Fruit
(ompany will make a rule not to let
people who are seeing off their friends
on outgoing ships go aboard in the
"That's wise. When you are part
ing from those you may never see
again, it ought to be done in private."
KILLING OF AUSLAND
About nmidnight 'l'uesday morning
the! third Seaimaiu to die in the fight on
the I'niltd Fruit Trust for a living
wage was killed near the corner of S.
Peters street and IlolArd avenue. lie
was Max Ausland, a firemnal. lie was
killed Iy I'hilip Farraro, bartender of
a nigger saloon on the river front.
The " White Stupremacy " press
states that the boys were
schasing some black men they took
to be nigger s.abs; that the supposed
scabs ran into the dive and implored
Ferraro to "lprotect them;" this the
"White Supremacists" say the "hero'
(who looks like a cross between a black
hand and a lumber trust gunman),
did by killing Analand and wounding
William Anderson. Ferraro, accord
ing to the "White Supremacy" press,
did'411 his shooting in "self-defenas,"
from, says the "States," "an aperture
ocvr Ihis door." Further on it says:
"The bullet which killed Ausland en
tered the left side of the back under
the shoulder blade, and passed through
the heart. Death was instantaneous."
As Ferraro's dive is on S. Peters
street, about the middle of the block,
as Aueland's body was found around
the corner about 50 feet up Howard
arenue, his death being "instantan
c,us," we would like to know how
Ferraro shot him from the divet
Again, how was it possible for Fer
raro to shoot Ansland in the "back"
when, ac*ording to his own statement,
he fired on the boys only whe they
pe'rsited in their attack on his gatet
Shelre, according to the "Item," is
Feraro's own statement.
Says the "Item":
"Ferraro Makes Statement."
