It was an efficient weapon and creat
ed consternation among the enemy,
While its use as an implement of war
bo far as history records ended
then and there, the same old jawbone
is causing some consternation today.
It was used at Portland yesterday
when Floyd Hyde, the shipwrights'
delegate to the labor convention,
stated with much gusto that "Russia
is more democratic than the United
States." and that "the United States'
troops now in Russia are interna
It was the same old jawbone that
is so commonly found controlling
labor conventions; the jawbone of a
radical, disloyal agitator. As a rule
these hot-headed members are in
the minority at such meetings, but
through persistence and hard fight
ing, coupled with a super-abundance
ot the above-mentioned jawbone
they generally secure control and
take the bit in their teeth.
Hyde is furious because the Unit
ed States is interfering in Russia. He
states that "Russia today with her
soviet, representing 80 per cent of
her people, has a better representa
tlon than we are getting."
As proof that Hyde's rail tings
are merely jawbone brayings, we
will state that neither he, nor any-
other man in America at the present
time, knows-of the true conditions In
Russia. That country Is torn asun
der with anarchy and revolution and
divided into many factions. Every
thing is chaos and there Is no way,
until an election is held in which all
of Russia's people have a right to
vote, to determine what proportion
of the people belong to any certain
faction or party. Hyde is making a
wild guess stabbing at what his
Bolshevik! mind Imagines and his
utterances prove him an undesirable
He should be listed with others to

that harts the cause of organized
labor and gives It a black eye.

understand just why our soldiers are

sent the boys across, is a "scab."
