Independence, Oregon, Friday, July 20, 1917
About 2000 men, branded I. W. W., have been
driven out of an Arizona mining town and are
now being fed by the government at Columbus,
N. M. It appears that the mine owners and their
hirelings took advantage of the I. W. W. scare to
remove not only the strikers but everybody who
sympathized with them or had given them assist
ance in any way. Included amontr the two
thousand are business and professional men, own
ers of homes and property. While without doubt
there were militant I. W. W. amonjr them, a
number were loyal, patriotic citizens who had
proved themselves as such by purchasing Liberty
Bonds and contributing liberal!' to the Red Cross.
Then, the mine owners by misrepresentation and
fraud induced the telegraph and telephone com
panies to recognize a censorship so that their un
lawful work would be kept from the outside
world as long1 as possible. The I. W. W should
be suppressed and its members severely dealt
with if found guilty of any crimes, and at the
same time some way should be found to punish
all unscrupulous persons and corporations who
use the name to hoodwink the public and take
advantage of a chaotic situation to further selfish
If the citizens of any community contributed as
liberally to the support of an educational and
amusement feature, operated and controlled
locally, as they do to the Chautauqua, better
talent could be secured for the same expenditure.
In other words, a community, with the same
amount of money, if not less, could provide a
better week's entertainment than is given by any
concern promoting Chautauquas and lecture
courses. Then again, if all communities, or most
of them, would refuse to give the usual guarantees
demanded, the Chautauqua and lyceum pro
moters would assume the financial risks and
provide the talent just the same. A circus comes
to town, puts up its tent and gives an exhibition
without guarantee. Chautauquas and lyceum
courses, like circuses, are run for the money there
is in it, and one is no more entitled to favors
than the other.

that is dangerous to the peace and happiness of
this Republic. While it has never been charged
that any of the "gentlemen" comprising it have
fomented a strike, poisoned a well or put pul
verized glass in any mule's lunch basket, they
have made such a "reputation" in their particular
work that Mr. Hoover, the government food ex
pert, says that they ought to be hung.
It looks as if the average family will have to go
on short rations this winter unless the government
steps in and does some dictating". It's up the head
of the house, whether male or female, to put aside
as much as possible now for the lean days ol
December and January.
It seems to be the prevailing habit of the daily
newspapers to bunch all the "scares" and "plots"
on the first page under glaring headlines and then
