The shooting o f J. P. Morgan is
but a warning, a forerunner of
that which is to come i f the dis
satisfaction between the employer
and the employed is not satisfac-
torially adjusted. It is stated that
the man who wounded Mr. Morgan
was wanting to prevent the ship
ment o f munitions o f w ar to Eu
rope. This may be true, but it is
also true that there is a belief that
such men as Morgan, Carnegie
and Rockefeller control the Gov
ernment o f the United States and
use it to promote their interests as
against the interests and rights o f
th“ workers. They do not believe
that it is possible to accumulate
the vast wealth these men have
in an honest or legitimate w ay. In
putting the rich and powerful out
o f the w ay or destroying their
property they believe that a great
service has been done fo r the poor.
They willingly risk liberty and life
to accomplish it. In this, a greater
danger confronts the United States
than the much talked o f w ar with
either Germany or Japan. Let
these people (cranks, i f such you
may be pleased to call them ) once
realize their power and like the
German submarine that the whole
world tfice scoffed at, they become
a terror and a nightmare to the
rich. It w ill be impossible to
guard against them. The most
trusted employee may be the wild
est o f the bunch, and apply the
torch place the bomb or fire the
deadly shot from ambush.

that the student must be between
