MONROE 553 Vol. 1, No. 58 Chicago, Monday, Dec. 1911 One Cent THE FUTURE OF TRADES UNIONISM The McNamara Confession May Be a Blessing in Disguise Labor's Eyes Opened to the Truth Now Let f Trades Unionism Set Its House in Order. There is nothing in the McNamara confession to seriously disturb any honest unionist about the tuture of trades unionism. To many, undoubtedly, it came at first like a sudden smash between the eyes. It was so unexpected, so" startling to those who had been contributing to the defense fund in the absolute conviction that the McNamaras were innocent, and were being railroaded by organized and .militant capitalism as part of the general war on trades unionism. " ... It was not surprising that most unionists believed this. It '.seemed like the Moyer-Haywood case, all over again, with the kidnaping, the betrayal -by McManigal, who was looked upon as a second Harry. Orchard, and the general frame-up. ...

Far-seeing unionists can begin-to view this seeming calamity as A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. Had the 'trial proceeded, a'ndHhe McNamaras been convicted, many thousands of honest unionists would have still believed that it was a frame-up, and that the McNamaras wee innocent martyrs to labor's cause, railroaded to the gallows on perjured testimony. And the class feeling would have been more deadly than it is now. Had the McNamaras been acquitted, they would have been heioes in the eyes of labor, even though the McNamaras and their confederates themselves knew they were guilty. And that kind of fighting would have gone on, emboldened by acquittal. The dynamiters in labor's ranks would have continued in leadership until FINALLY SOME GREATER CATASTROPHE WOULD HAVE EXPOSED THEM, AND WROUGHT EVEN MORE SERIOUS INJURY TO THE CAUSE. AS IT IS, LABOR KNOWS THE TRUTH. THAT KNOWLEDGE IS WORTH ALL IT COST IN DEFENSE 'FUND. FOR NOW LEADERS WHO FJGHT WITH DYNAMITE WILL HAVE TO MAKE WAY FOR' LEADERS WHO R...

WITH ORGANIZED CAPITAL UNCHECKED BY SOME SUCH ORGANIZATION OF THE TOILERS, INDUSTRIAL FEUDALISM IN ITS MOST VICIOUS FORM WOULD MAKE WHITE SLAVERY IN THIS COUNTRY EVEN MORE HORRIBLE THAN THE BLACK SLAVERY THAT COST SO MUCH OF PRECIOUS BLOOD TO ABOLISH, t But trades unionism cannot successfully employ the tactics of plutocracy.

After 20 years of continuous, patient effort, the campaign begun by the consumers' league of New' York against Christinas cruelties has become nation wide. Never before were such Christmas displa)s ready before Thanksgiving.

fatigue poison followed by a period of rest and refreshment can be taken, day after day, without permanent injury. But an overdose steadily repeated works havoc. In January and February the hospitals are flooded with young men and women, boys and girls, all with rheumatism often fatally attacking the heart, or with pneumonia or rapid tuberculosis. They are paying the penalty of the evils of all of us.

SHSHS mmsmemmmmmmmmm of all took place at Los Angeles. Mrs. Robert Bain, wife of the first permanent juror accepted by both sides in the McNamara trial, said that she accepted $500 as earnest money for a bribe which was to total $5,000 if she influenced her husband to disregard evidence against James B. McNamara and to vote for an acquittal. It is said that District Attorney Fredricks is withholding evidence of the gravest character in connection with the bribery of jurors. One report says that Fredricks is merely waiting until another of the accepted jurors who received itioney comes forward and confesses. Mrs. Bain says she was given the $500 after her husband qualified as a jurot. She turned the money over to the district attorney to be used as evidence; She says she cannot tell who gave it to her. George N. Lockwood, the prospective juror who worked with the district attorney's detectives in bringing about teh -arrest for bribery of Bert Franklin, has identified a picture of a m...

1 SLUGGERS ARE SLUGGERS In the course of a hysterical editorial jumping all over Sam Gompers, the Chicago Tribune forgets itself long enough to say: "Mr. Gompers knew of the murderous course of the labor troubles in Chicago, when union men assaulted and even slew brother union men. While these things continue under the guise of advancing the cause of organized labor, why should Mr. Gompers or other leaders assume that ,the crime of a McNamara is unthinkable, and forthwith charge every one outside of unionism with conspiracy, prejudice and tvrnnnv?" -The Day Book does not call attention to this Tribune spasm for the purpose of finding fault with the Tribune's criticisms of labor sluggers.

,-r:rmmmmmmmmmmmmmummmKmmumm "ANOTHER LABOR BETRAYAL BASED ON OLD ERROR" Written for The Day Book by Brand Whitlock,Mayor of Toledo. The announcement that the McNamaras have confessed their sruilt is a sickening- moral shock to those who had believed in their innocence. There is much that one is etmpted to say, but I have time now only to ppint out tht their desperate and cruel crime was based on an old error, the fundamental error of thinking that there are circumstances which justify force and brutality, and violence. All the brutality, all the violence in civilization are based on that error, including official brutality and violence, and no cause can succeed, no people can become really great until they learn that, as Tolstoy says, there are no such circumstances. There is no more good in dynainite than there is-in Pinkerton bullets, for instance; no "more, good in assassination than there is in hanging, and no difference between them; they are all the same. It is another betray...

During the past 10 years, for the first time in its history, the rural population actually declined fell off 45,000. Chicago alone now has 39 per cent of the entire population and waxes bigger every day. Thus the number of persons engaged in providing food -gets less and less : the number .consuming food, larger and larger. We are not complaining or drawing pessimistic conclusions' from these facts. We call attention to modern tendencies. Doubtless -they mean other changes, but they should be such as will make the world a better place to live in. oo BEFORE CHRISTMAS 'As the merry Christmas days come on With the chime of the Christmas bells, 'And the Christmas stars shine clear and bright, And the Christmas anthems swell O it isn't the glad, gay carolings That fall on my listening car For a sadder strain of pang and pain Breaks in on the Christmas...
