WARNING GIVEN TO UNION LABOR bolshevism is denounced by WELL-KNOWN FERERA TION LEADER. That legitimate organized labor does j . not approve of the scheme of radicals to "steal'' party names and organize- ! : tion, and through this system take th© i | first steps to sovietize this nation, is : ©ell ©videnced in a recent article by ; Chester M. Wright of the American 1 1 Federation of tabor which has ap- I pea red la many legitimate labor pub- ! licatton© in the land. Mr. Wright does , not spare words In denouncing th© 1 spread of socialism, bolshevism and | communism in the labor union©, and I what Is more, he gives names. Som© weeks ago Bam Gompers, pres ident of the American Federation of ' tabor. In an address before a union meeting in Chicago, took occasion to j I denounce William Z. Foster in the bit- i terest terms, charging him with seek ing to disrupt the federation and de* | ' stroy this government and that he was aided in his work by Russian gold. Now comes (.Theater A.

The present movement in Wyoming to secure political control of the state has the backing of, and I© supported by, what 1© called th© Conference for Progressive Political Action formed la Chicago in February of this year. Thia organisation i© the direct result of a resolution adopted by th© Socialist party in July ot last year. The dele gates to this convention were made us of radicals representing the very things above denounced by Mr. W’right, and among those who took an actlv© part, and in a measure directed affairs, was William Z. Foster. In speaking of the many schemes being worked by the radicals with Russian backing in thi© land, Mr. Wright ©ays: Don't Underestimate. •‘Anybody whs underestimate© the ramification ©f the Soviet machine I© ( feelleh.” Attention should here be called to th© fact that th© Nonpartisan League as it is managed and the present poßt- j leal move in Wyoming, according to | the beat information, appears a part of j this “ramification.** Continuing, Mr. Wright says: "Bolshevism has no groat strength In America and ©an got none oo long as It oan be kept In the open. But it lo continually striving for ooerocy. The | worst thing that over happened to WIL | Ham Z.

It is In Wyoming today masking under one of its many “ramifications” as a Farmer tabor movement. The whole purpose is to deceive the loyal farmer and the loyal wage-earner. Buch men a© Fos ter are seeking the overthrow of our government —that and nothing else. Gompers has made the direct charge that Foster Is getting gold from Rus sia. Wright charges Socialist newspa per© with being a part of the move ment. Honest men there are who have been deceived. Aid them In securing the facts that they may understand just what they are doing. “Don’t Imagine the Rod menace is absent because you can not see it" That's why it 1© with you.

TRIBE CLOSE TO EXTINCTION Only Pitiful Remnant Remains ©f Bern inoles Who Once Defied th© United States Government. The Seminole Indians are to be moved to a reservation on die west coast of Florida—an area of 21,000 acres. Though partly under water, the tract Is deemed of adequate ex tent. Inasmuch as there are only about 225 Semlnoles left. This is the melancholy remnant of what was once a powerful tribe, which owned the whole of Florida and fought with the United States government ' one of the most vigorously contested wars In our history. The Semlnoles are notably handsome people and lheir young women are the “JJ —j-J j JI j Typical Seminole House. prettiest of all Indian girls. There ©re no white half-breeds among them. So strong In the tribe Is hatred of our race that, if a Seminole woman were to have a child by a white man. she would be likely to be put to death. Around their necks the women wear many strings of beads of cut-glass, which they buy from traders. Some times a squaw Is adorned with as much as six quarts of these beads, and even tl»e girl babies are loaded down with them. The women pierce as many as ten holes In the upper rim of each ear to bold pegs of wood. The Setuinole bouse is of peculiar construction, having a roof and floor, but oo sides.

FIND GROUNDS FOR RAILROAD CHARGES Lines Turned Back to Owners on In osecure Basis, Says Senate Committee Head Washington.—Grounds for the dec laration that the railroad administra tion failed to turn back railroads to their owners in a condition to be self sustaining was declared Friday by Chairman Cummins of the senate in terstate commerce commission com mittee, to have been established dur ing the committee’s Inquiry into gen eral railroad conditions. Buch a declaration, made by Julius Kruttschnltt. chairman of the Southern Pacific board In completing his testi mony before the committee, and pre | vlously made by other witnesses, drew j supporting responses from Chairman I Cummins and also from Senator Pom ’ I erene. Democrat, Ohio, both of whom I | said the railroads were bearing the t' blame which should be charged against the railroad administration. ‘The most serious complaint against the railroad administration,” Chairman Cummins said, “lies in the fact that it did not return the railroads in a con dition to be self-sustaining. It ought to have established rates before return ing them that would have made the railroads reasonably self-sustaining. It not only imposed on the railroads a moat unpopular and unnecessary duty (of asking rate increase) but Imposed on congress the necessity of providing a guarantee for the six months follow ing federal control.” NATIONAL PARK OPENING DATES ARE ANNOUNCED Yellowstone Season to Be From June SO to September 19; Glacier Sea son Opens June 15 Washington.—Opening and closing dates of the tourist season in the na tional parka for 1922 have been an nounced by Secretary Fall as follows: Crater Lake national park, Oregon, July 10 to September 20; General Grant national park, California.
