The vote was unanimous, with the exception of two Socialist Labor Party dele gates. The resolution as amended reeds: "WHEREAS, The Socialist Party represents the workers in the political fields; and "WHEREAS. The Socialist Party depends upon the people of the working class for its sue cers: and "WHEREAS, It has been real ized that if solidarity prevail among the workers they can CHICAGO TRIAL (Continued .Tiom page one I world and they will repudiate them after taking over all the mines, factories, oil fields, etc., as the' collective property of the people." Oil Operates and Detective Under cross examination it ap peared that one of the secret service men, Wm. E. Pope, was an ex-mine and oil operator and is at present heavily interested in the oil industry in that part of Texas where Clark was arrested last August. According to his own statement, however, Mr. Pope was only interested in any re rrarks that might sound seditious and not at all in Clark's ad vocacy of government ownership of oil field* and mines or in his denunciation of the oil and cop per operators who would rather see these industries tied up with bitter strikes than to accede to the workers just demands for j living wages and humane condi tions. These things Mr. Pope, very conveniently, forgot. Another special agent for the j department of justice, Claude Me-; <"a]<\j. sought to show that the I. W. W. defendants, W. H. Lew is H. V. Kane, };. J. McCaskin end Abraham Rodriguez were ac tively in charge of the copper miners' strike in Miami, Arizona last year. Speeches and state- ! ments supposed to have been made by these men before and after their am were reported to the jury. About the only thing made •■'ear by their testimony is the fact that the miners were on strike in this «;rnp. that conditions had been intolerable arid that both the W. F. of M. and the I. W. W, had gone out in an effort achieve their goal, as has been 11 oven at the last election in the ■ity of New York; and 'WHEREAS, The coming elec ioi is very important, being a it Mional election; and "WHEREAS. Congi*M is th« body that can make food legis !r:fion; he it therefore "RESOLVED, That the 14th bi ennial convention of the I. L. G. W.

And be t further RESOLVED That we exercise a!! our energies in aiding the can •!i«l..t«.-s of the Socialist Party far '■'■rv ro'itical nffice." ; o better them. Mr. MeCaleb. under cross examination Ay de-. i f'.nse attorney Vanderveer ad ; -nitt^l that W. H. Lewis stated i he ft-neial t-t.-ike vote was an xprtssion of tlie will of the mem tership of the union. Abraham Rodriguez, it was said, resisted •.nest, claiming that his home ; had been entered without due 'roeens of law, and only gave himself up after a mob armed leputies had threatened himself ; and family with Winchesters and ]yr:;imite. Rodriguez is a Mex ean copper miner and a member f Industrial Union 800. He is well known throughout Spanish America as a poet and song writ er. Mr. Claeb's story stems im probable in the extreme. Secret service operative David Proctor told of a speech supposed to have been made in Jerome, Arizona during the big strike by E. J. Coshan. Attorney Vander veer protested against the admis sion of the evidence on the grounds that this speech was not men tioned in the bill of particulars presented against this defendant. ! In fact all but one or two of the speeches about which testimony wns given were not mentioned in the different bills of particulars at ail. The court requested the H. A. ENGELBRECHT CO.

Indeed these letters, written in frank, blunt working class language throw remrakab'e side lights on the industrial condition which have prevailed in the greatest copper campF in the world. They form a vast background for the ptesent proceedings in Judge Landis' court room—a panorama sordid with armed gun-men, lynch ing* and deportations. And the ficticious charge of "disloyalty" placed against the Industrial Workers of the World shows up as hieing very "thin" in the face of !lie actual results of the war | profits-at-all-price policy of the labor-hating copper trusts mag nates, that these letters disclose. Just before court adjourned Wednesday, May 29th, the prose cution presented two witnesses a-.'airist William Tanner, a Fin nish machinist indicted with the I. W. W. men. Tanner is sup posed to have torn down a re cruiting poster in the shop where he was working in July of last year. He has been in the Cook County jail ever since, and, some how or other the prosecution has seen fit to include him in the big I. W.

The prosecution has done strang er things than this. Subscribe for The Co-operative News. GENERAL ZOM A Side Light on (he Mexican Situation (Hy Upton Sinclair) Come to Los Angeles, rich ami prosperous, and hear General Nicholas Zogg tell about Zapata land, where there i. no money at all! General Zogg compels the re spect of Americans, because he is a man of wealth—that is, he was a man of wealth under the old regime. Ik 1 is cultured and gracious, looks like an Italian, and speaks' with a pair of eloquent and slender hands. If I were to tell his own life story in a book, you would call it melodrama, as utterly impossible as his real Utopia. After the first revolu tion, he became governor of Low er California; and there was a hundred and ninety thousand dol lars in taxes due on six hundred and fifty thousand acres of land owned by Harrison Gray Otis, proprietor of the Los Angeles "Times." The old Walrus of the "Times" was not accustomed to paying his taxes at home, so, of course, he had no idea of paying them to a bunch of low-down peons. General Zogg was told to collect them;, but Otis being a Gringo, and having the Gringo government behind him, it was hard to bring him to terms. So Zogg came up to Los Angeles, and laid before Otis a plot for a counter-revolution. This was the sort of thing Otis was accustomed !to paying for, so he put up a hundred and ninety thousand dol | lars for arms and ammunition to overthrow Carranza; and Zogg ! went back to Mexico and reported ! that he had collected the taxes! But the Mexican made the mis take of returning to Los An geles, where Otis was the govern ment; so Otis had him grabbed —on a charge of over-drawing his bank account a few dollars. Zogg had thousands of dollars in other Los Angeles banks when he made that little slip, but that didn't help him—his witnesses were driven away, and he was railroaded to Folsom for a couple of years! The little General claims to j have a letter from Otis, offering him twenty-five thousand dollars to blow the Imperial dam. You see, Otis wanted to "break" Car ranza, he wanted riots and dis order, so as to force American intervention in Mexico; And the Imperial dam is a ticklish proposition, being just inside the Mexican border, but controlling: the water-supply of the whole of Imperial Valley in California. To blow up this dam would mean ruin to the people of a whole country; but, if it brought on a war, it would have doubled or trebled the value of the six hun dred and fifty thousand Mexican acres belonging to General Otis. Zogg declares that he has been arrested three times by various American authorities in an effort to get that letter from him; but they haven't succeeded yet, be cause he keeps it in Mexico. I find it easier to believe his story, becau.se of the fact that Hairy Chandler, son-in-law, heir and successor to Otis, was recently in dicted by the Federal authorities for trying to ship arms into Mexico. Why attack a dead man ? you may ask. The reason is — one might paraphrase the old song: Old Otis' body lies a-moulder ing in the grave, But his soul goes cursing on. Once every twenty-four hours the Los Angeles "Times" appears, and pours its venom over all Page Throe Or,I) Cunuilrtr Mffi.f Uutfi'tn. • I»■ PRINTING Rubber Stamps, Stationery PUGET PRESS 2K16 Oaken Aye.
