Seattle is today the cynosure of
all eyes; not only of the people In
the Northwest, but or all the United
States. That city received this dis
tinction yesterday when 65,000 un
ion laborers walked out on strike In
aytupathji.wlth shipyard workers who
demanded $S a day tar skilled work
men and $6 a day tor unskilled labor
ers. Of the latter class, the major
ity of them could not erect an ordi
nary barn nor construct a common
In the face of this demand, the
mine owners at Butte, Mont., today
lowered the wages of employes one
dollar a day. Many of those on
strike at Seattle are much, less than
a week from dead broke financially,
' but they seem tull of hope and open
ly voice their opinio that they will
win out. The general public does
not think so, especially as soldiers
have been rushed to Seattle from
Camp . Lewis to .preserv e order.
Union labor is all right and a fine
thing, until the rabid element takes
the bit and runs rampant, carrying
their demands beyond all reason.
That Is what has happened at Seat
tle and that vicious weapon, "sym
pathetic strike," has again been used
to the detriment of organized labor.
By employing it, the strikers lost all
sympathy of the public
The design of the strikers is to
utterly paralyze all business and
bring the country to its knees at the
feet of labor. Senator Thomas has
iiiamncrnea me preseut strike ss
a test of Bolshevism in America. If
It wins, the country Is In danger of
being enthralled in a bitter snd end
less wage dispute. But by Immedi
ately sending troops to the scene it Is
plain that the government intends to
deal firmly with the situation In its
tnclplency. The strikers may return
after a demonstration of 21 to 4 5
hours duration, as has been intimat
ed, but If not, Seattle will no doubt
go through an experience that her
citizens shall never forpet.
A notlceaMe feature of most or
these strikes where arbitration Is re
fused by the workmen is the fact
that the vast majority of their lead
ers bear foreign names. Only a
short time ago one of these "leaders" J
said to the Courier editor: j
"The trouble with the American
laboring man Is the fact that lie
hasn't got the backbone to stand up
and fight for his rights. But thank
Qod there are now enough of us fel
lows from the old country to show
them how the trick Is turned and get
what we ask for. Capital is our na
tural enemy and If we don't tight for
our rights we'll all be slaves."
So here is the real factor to be
reckoned with. American workmen
led by foreign agitator. This man
was a foreigner Swede, He had
left his fatherland to make his for
tune, as well aa home tor his chil
dren, In "tree America." He was j
. formerly a newspaper man, was of
KINNEY & TRUAX GROCERY
studious nature and had . fair edu
cation. When the war broka out he
bought liberty bond, tor appear
ance sake, but up to the day Ameri
ca entered the war had openly de
clared himself In favor of Germany;
he hoped Germany would win be
cause her cause waa Just.
This is one Instance, but a glance
at the names of the strike leaders
who refuse to arbitrate will bear out
the assertion that the majority 'of
them are of foreign birth men who
have come' to show the American the
way to liberty and Independence.
Knowing these facts, is what led
Senator Sherman to state that tho,
Seattle affair was more of a demon
stration of Bolshevism than a mere
demand of laborers to receive what
Is considered In the business world
a fair and equitable wage.

The mysterious disappearance of
Smith Flohr, on eighty-year-old moun

missing since August 20, and for whom
a search covering the Blue Ridge
mountains for miles n round has been
going on since, was solved when two

On the day of the old mountaineer's
disappearance he hud been visiting a

his way across to Blue Ridge Summit,
where another son. I. 8. Flohr, lived.
Intending to scnd the night there.
Despite efforts to dissuade him, Flohr
started out across the mountains.
From that moment until his skeleton
was discovered about a mile from the
main mountain road, his whereabouts
puzzled the countryside. It is now as
sumed that he became confused, wan
