REV. HARRY FOSTER Burns of Boston., speaking before
the United Church Forum, protests against the depor
tation of Russian Radicals, a.s an assault upon free speech.
"Let the radicals talk." he s-ays. "Talk is not such a magic
worker as we feem to assume."
Mr. Hums is talking without his facts, talking to the ad
mitted principle that men should not he disturbed for express

Right of free speech iias always been limited. It is not
the right to advocate what is unlawful. It is not the right to
advocate rebellion by violence. Or if the right to advocate re
bellion by violence ones exist, it is a right that must be exer
cised at (he peril of the intending rebel.
Even in the iueeiiug which Mr. Burns addressed, the rights
of free speech, so far as he was concerned, was limited to 40
minutes, and those speaking in discussion to three minutes.
Any considerable departure from this liberty would be resent
ed, and the resent rieni would incisure to the degree of the de-

An alien subject of Rnr-sia who seriously proposes "the
shooting of the most prominent military and police officers,"
so little understands American methods, as not to be a good
person for American citizenship. It is entirely' wise, moral
and Chrl!;an. to take him back to his own country.

tries by internal revolution, fostered from without.
This activity of the Russian Soviet government has been
admitted indirectly by Lenine, in his peace offer, in which he
agreed to discontinue such revolutionary effort, if terms
should be signed with the Allies and the blockade Joe with
drawn. The sporadic self impelled activity of individuals seeking
change in government is one thing. The organized activity of
a foreign power, working through propaganda to impose its
will upon ibis country, is another thing.
The consequences of propaganda of this sort were well
displayed .luring the war. By propaganda, the word of sedi
tion preached wilhin the enemy country, the United States
brought about the disintegration of Austria-Hungary, more
certainly than by arms. General Ludendorff has testified in
iii s memoirs the very destructive effect which American pro
paganda had in the disintegration of German morale.
There is really no end to the damage that might be occa

This wouid he a form of war, and not the mere exercise of

There are certain principles governing free speech and the
right of assemblage which are older than those rights, and
which are as valid now as they wore in the beginning.
Those only may speak in the meeting, who have a right

Neither in a man's home, in church, lodge, or state may

attempts to interfere in the political management of the Uni

rights until they are extended to him by naturalization, and if

ilKYAX STILL STRONG
F IT IS TRUE that Mr. Bryan has determined to enter a
contest for the Democratic congressional nomination.
he will be a formidable candidate. He is not a weak man, as
is so commonly supposed in the East, where he has never
been popular. He is a very strong man, with perhaps the
largest individual following of any American statesman, since
the deafh of Roosevelt. Indeed, from the period when Roose
velt, refused tJie nomination of the Progressive party it is
probable that Bryan's following was chc most numerous.

have shipped four ba rr;ls of liquor
from Xpw Haven to Chicopee.
Dominck Perrctti, one of the six
held here, is said by the police to
have manufactured liquor in a still in
Westville and sold it to Meriden sa

to connect the sale of this liquor
with the death of Mrs. William G.

was continued in this vicinity today
for persons connected with the traific
in poisonous liquor which has result
ed -n the last few days in at least 57
deaths and many cases of serious ill

death toll at an early hoour today was
divided as follows: Chicopee, 37, in

Springfield, 4, including 1 woma.n;
Had ley, 3; Greenfield 1, and Thomp

Fourteen a-riests of those alleged 'o
have handled the liquor, which was
found to contain a wood alcohol base,
have been made and others were ex
pected. ?lost of the liquor, ship
ped from Hartford, Conn., to other
Connecticut valley cities, has been
accounted for, the authorities said,
and they believed that few more
cases of illness would be r ported.
Investigations conducted by feder
al, state and local police have re
vealed many violations of the prohibi
tion law, it was said, and arrests were
expected on this score. Many illicit
stills, "kitchen bars" and private
stocks from which sales had been
made, were discovered, it was re
ported. Thofmpaonviile, Conn., Dec. 29.
Leonard Montana, a liquor dealer,
pleaded guilty today to the charge of
making an illegal sale of licuor on
December 22. Semtenece was delayed

by the federal authorities in connec
tion with the wood alcohol cases. His
bond, was fixed at Sl.OflO. The arrest
followed tho two deaths from wood
! alcohol poisoning here. Montana
j bought five gallons of so-called whis
key in Hartford and this mixture is
believed to have caused the death and
also made two persons ill. The actual
sale was to another saloonkeeper.
John Vigmont, another liquor dealer
charged with illegal sale, could not
appear in court as he is ill from poi
soning. Chicoga, Dec. 2 9 The use of bev
erages composed partly of wood alco
hol, which has killed ten persons in
Chica-go s'ince Christmas was the sub
ject of a conference today between
Maclay Hoyne, state's attorney, and
Coroner Hoffman. Mr. Hoyne said
charges of manslaughter would -be
pressed against all persons where evi
dence shows they sold wood alcohol to
drink. "More than that," he said,
"they also will be prosecuted under
the Illinois search and seizure law.
This wholesale poisoning by bogus
liquor must stop."

Bryan has been a large factor in bringing about prohibit
tion. In the prohibition states of the west arAI south, and in
the states where women vote he has great strength. What is
more to the point, since all nominations begin with the poli
tical elements that control primary elections, he is exceeding
ly well acquainted with the leaders who so largely control
nominations, by directing the elections at which delegates to
the National convention are selected.
IX THE Ninth District of North Carolina the Democratic
candidate has been victorious by 1,022. The election
was characterized by methods which cannot be entirely ap
proved. To vote "one had to run a gang of hangers on," at
some polling places.
The thing is done much better in Michigan, where cold
cash is used for persuasion, instead of heelers. The Newberry
campaign proves how superior the methods of the west are to
those of the south.
Bridgeport would scorn an election won by a mere dis
play of heelers. Here cash is also the reliance of the skillful,

The storm which commenced Saturday afternoon and

PURPOSE TO BU
mis rp at omnic
The story has been circulating for
some days that Lodge Xo. 30. in which
are enrolled most of the. machinists of
Bridgeport, had been addressed -bv the
I proprietor of a bucket shop, advising
the members to withdraw their sav
ings from Bridgeport banks.
It was asserted that this speaker
! said he would find better ways to in
vest the money.
Sam Lavit, business agent of the
union, denied today that it was the
intention of the Machinists to with
draw their funis from the banks in
order to have them invest in wildcat
He said: "At every meeting we
have some address the members of
Lodge No. 30 on some interestir.3
subject. We have had Mr. Frye of
the Lake Torpedo Boat company talk
on 'How Labor and Capital Can Get
Together and a few weeks ago we
had a man talk on finances. He had
nothing- to sell, but told the members
that they should try and buy stock in
the factories in which they work, or
in other local factories.
"Our idea is not to have the men
take their money out of the loca,
banks to invest in something else.
We are simply going to call attention
of the local bankers, with whom our
members have money on deposit, that
they should be interested in us and
take our part when we make demands
on our employers for a living wage.
"If the bankers don.'t caro to help
us, our members will withdraw their
money from these banks and deposit
in the Postal Savings Bank, or some
out of town banks."
