Lloyd and Others Guilty of Conspir

Chicago, 111., Aug. 2. William
Br 088 Lloyd, millionaire Socialist,
and 19 other members of the Com
munist Labor party, to-night were
found guilty by a jury of conspiracy
to overthrow the government of the
The defendants were given various
sentences, most of them getting from
one to five years In the penitentiary,
a few being given fines In addition
and several were sentenced to one
year in jail. Lloyd got the heaviest
sentence, being given one to five
years In the penitentiary and a fine
of 3,000 In addition.

the Communist Labor party platform
and author of alleged radical publi
cations, receiVed one to five years,
and Jack Carney, Duluta1 Minn., ed
itor of "Truth," and a member of the
party's national executive committee,
one to five years and $1000 fine.
The sentences are for the State
penitentiary and the Cook County
The defendants were charged with
conspiracy to advocate the over
throwing of the government by
force; conspiracy to belong to an or
ganization advocating It, and con
spiracy to attend meetings at which
overthrowing the government by
force was advocated.
MacLay Heyne, State's attorney
In a statement iseued after the ver
dict, called it a "signal victory for
the entire United States."
"In this trial 'red' radicalism was
driven Into the open," said the state
ment. "One important issue decided
by this Jury is that the 'red' card of
the I. W. W.'is international and that
the only card recognized as Amerl
can is the card of the American
working man in the American Fed
eration of Labor."
Three women, indicted at the
same time as Lloyd and others, now
are awaiting a separate trial.
The defendants were indicted un
der a new Illinois law against crim

The trial began May 10, and near

During the trial the State cen
tered its attack on Lloyd, the most
prominent of the defendants, and the
son of a Boston philanthropist. He
was charged with openly advocating
a revolution of the masses against
the government and was alleged to
have said in speeches that "banks
should be blown t get money to fi
nance the revolution and armories
should be rifled for ammunition."
Several newspaper men vhO re
ported the speeches made by Lloyd
were among the witnesses against
the millionaire and associates, and
Mayor Ole Hanson, of Seattle also
testified. Masses of documents is

formed a Commercial man of the con
tents of a letter received by her firm
written by a big mining corporation,
suggesting lower prices for soft coal
during the next few days. The min

would would take a hand and set
the prices back, where they were dur

at all, at much cheaper prices than
the cheaper grades from ' Kentucky
and Illinois are selling for. Whether
the government does or does not, the
authorities know, the miners know,
the middle grafters know and the
people know that something should
be done, and the doing is long since
overdue. Thousands of the price
boosters and strike grafters should
be In Jail. This might help some.
It is worth a trial.
Work of Third National Bank.
Recognizing that a bank has
public duty to perform in times of
stress, the Third National Bank of
this city has met the present' strin

were Justifiable In doing, by using
the Federal Reserve Bank liberally
for rediscount in assisting their cus
tomers to produce crops and prepare
live stock for the markets.
Although their loans were, at high
water mark at the beginning of the
season, and their clients being large

necessarily . decrease before a new
crop was made, this bank made in
original loans In May $79,380.29, In
June $24,241.23, and July $47,-

a renewal of a former loan.
