UTIH PARDON BOARD
REFUSES CLEMENCY
FOR JOE HILL
Will Bi Executed if the Necessary
Protest Is Not Made at
Once
WRITES TO SALT LAKE PAPER
Salt Lake < it>. (let. 20. The State
Hoard of Colorado, in session here,
ha* refused clemency for Joe Mill, arid
a notice has hen sent out that he will
\» vhot w ithm Li da> s.
The labor movement is protesting
against the decision of the (’(dorado
tsiard and many protest meetings are j
being held all over the country. La
unions arid reform organizutiuns are
reijU* >led to writ* President Wilson
and the governor of L’tah at once and
protest against the decision made by
the State Pardon Hoard of I'tah.
The life of Joe Mill can be saved
if the labor movement will do its
full duty and act at once.
The following letter by Joseph Hill
strom, known as Joe Hill, was sent
from prison by the condemned man to
the Salt Lake Telegram:
Hill's Letter.
"State Prison, August 15, 1915.
"Kditor, Telegram, Salt Lake City,
Ctah.
"Sir; 1 have noticed that there
have lire A sum* articles in your paper
wherein the reason why I discharged
my attorneys, K. B. Scott and K. h.
Mchougall, was discussed pro and
con. If you will kindly allow me a
little space, 1 think I may be able to
throw a little light on the (juestion.
"There were several reasons why 1
discharged, or tried to discharge,
these attorneys. The main reason,
however, was !>ecause they never at
tempted to cross-examine the wit
nesses for the state, and failed utterly
to deliver the |xunts of the defense.
"When 1 asked them why they did
not use the records of the prelimin
ary hearing to pin the witnesses down
to their former statements, they
blandly informed me that the prelim
inary hearing had nothing to do with
the district court hearing and that
under the law they had no right to
use said records.
"1 picked up a record myself and
tried to luok at it, but Mr. Scott took
it away from me, stating that ‘it
would have a bad effect on the jury.'
1 then, came to the conclusion that
Scott and Mchougall were not there
for the purpose of defending me, and
I did just what any other man would
have done.

show, killed by Mime enemy for the
sake of revenge, and I have not beam
in this city long enough to make an
enemy Shortly before my arrest, 1
came down from I’srk City, where I
was working in the mines. Owing to
the prominence there had to he a
■gout.' and the undersigned being, as
they thought, a friendless tramp, a
Swecd, and worst of all, an 1. VS. W.,
had no right to live anyway, and was
therefore duly selected to be the
‘goat.’
"There were men sitting on my
jury, the foreman being one of them,
w ho were never subpoenaed for the
ease. There are errors and perjury
that are screaming to high heaven for
mercy, and 1 know that I. according
to the laws of the land, am entitled 1
to a new trial, and the fact that the ,
Supreme Court does not grunt It to
me only proves that the tieautiful
term, 'ixjuality before law, is merely
an empty phrase in Salt l ake City.
Judge Hilton Says.
•Here is what Judge Hilton of Hen
per, one of the greatest authorities on
1 law, has to say utxiut it:
" The decision of the Supreme
I Court surprised me greatly, but the
1 reason why the verdict was affirmed
| is, I think, on account of the rotten
l record* made by the lower court.'
"This statement shows plainly why
| the motion for a new trial was dc
j nied and there is no explanation nee
I essary In conclusion. I wish to state
I that my records are not i|Uite as black
I as they have been painted.
I “In spite of all the hideous picture*
\ and all the had things said and
printed als-ut me, I have only Urn ar
rested once in my life, and that was
: in San 1'edro, Cal. At the time of
the Stevedores and I hx kworkers'
! strike, the committor, and I suppose
I, was a little too active to suit the
i chief of that burg, so he ai rested me
und gave me thirty days in the city
jail for 'vagrancy' und there you
1 have the full • vtent of my 'criminal
record.'
, “I have always worked hard for a
living and paid for everything I got,
and my spare time 1 spend painting
my pictures, writing songs and com
posing music.
1 "Now, if tla people of the Stale of
I'tah want to shoot me without giving
i me half a chance to state my side of
I the ease, bring on your tiring n|U.ul,

Was Discharged After Strike Was
Settled.
Denver A heart rending case of
the deception of union hater* was I
shown here when K. S. Mount,
charged with seven forgeries of $24
each, pleaded guilty in the Denver
weal aide court and was sentenced to
from one to three years in the peni
tentiary. by Judge Class.
With tears roihng down his chc*eks.
Mount made a statement to the court
m which he laid his downfall to own
ers of the Cripple Creek Short lane
Kail road, on which he worked ax a
strikebreaker, but who discharged him
last spring when the union employes
won their tight.
'I am a victim of the system.** said '
Mount. **l am being sent to the pern* 1

I met some casual acquaintances and
they asked me to have a drink with

GREETINGS
Yesterday the four pages that make up the paper
you are now reading were plain white paper. Lead
type, smeared with black ink were pressed against the
paper and the NATIONAL NEWS was born.
The NATIONAL NEWS is your paper You own
it. It will reflect your ideas It will voice your Cause.
Neither the Politician in or out of the Labor Move
ment can muzzle or mould the NATIONAL NEWS.
The NATIONAL NEWS was born to serve the
Cause. It will not represent any clique, group or set of
men, nor will it serve any single idea or point of view.
It will be a newspaper. It will give you the facts. With
the facts before you and your God given intelligence
you can contnbute your share towards Solving the
problems ahead of Organized Labor. Service is the
motto of NATIONAL NEWS To do constructive work
is its aim
Resolutions and protest meetings and conventions
are all nght in their place, but the great rank and file
of the Labor Movement can only reach the Promised
Land by thinking their way out of the Wilderness. No
man can be free who lets another man think for him—
it matters not whether the other man is a Labor Leader
or a Capitalist.
NATIONAL NEWS will be published weekly. It
is not being published to make money. Every dollar '
received wiU be used to increase the size and equipment
of the paper and make more efficient the service to the
Cause of the Man in Overalls. The publisher of this
paper is not in the game to make profit. There will be
no profits in dollars and cents. This enterprise is not
and will not be a money making one. The profit we are
after is the profit in better conditions and terms of em
ployment, and better wages and better, happier and
more hopeful lives for men, women and children.
Recently a man was sent to the Insane Asylum.
The doctors said he was hopelessly insane. They based
their opinion on the fact that he refused to help himself.
This is your paper. With it and by it and through
it you can help yourself. This means every man in the
Labor Movement. Will you refuse to help yourself?
Every man that knows anything knows that public
opinion makes the laws and selects and elects the men
who run the country. Public opinion can be reached
only through the printed page. The people want the
facts. That the people do not get the facts concerning
Organized Labor is in part our fault. We must get the
facts to the people. Therefore NATIONAL NEWS
?iIans to give facts rather than state opinions. There
ore NATIONAL NEW8 will have no other creed than
getting the facts to the public.
NATIONAL NEWS asks you to support your own
paper. Watch it grow in size and in usefulness. Its
growth depends upon you. Every subscriber is an
owner. One subscriber will have the same right, title
and interest in the paper as aany other. NATIONAL
NEWS will represent the Cause. It will plan publicity
campaigns. It will syndicate to other newspapers facts
concerning issues that an sf vital importance to the
men who work for a Brin*.
Now, Mr. 0- .er of the NATIONAL NEWS, we ask ~
you not to forget that you are one of the owners of tl
paper Wc ask vou tc thJ Jt and vt ar. owner of the
pai<bi. Sneah j* SkllUlSAL V 5 as yo 4 j
work for it as your paper. Send news to ns. Get every
man with a Union card to become an owner of NA
TIONAL NEWS.
Ink will be smeared on black type. Black type will
be pressed against white paper every week and the
Postman will bring yon a copy of your paper each week
for one year, fifty two copies, and the price will be One
Dollar. As the number of owners increases, the sise of
the paper will increase. Every dollar that comes in will
go into the paper—none will cling to the hands of the
Publisher. CARL E. PERSON. Publisher.
