HENRY FORD'S CRIME
HIOXRY FORI) is fiisl putting IhiiihcII' beyond flic pale
of respectability. I le impudently and recklessly flies
in ilie face of the desires of the overlords of plutocracy.
They have marked him for destruction. Willi all his mil
lions he will find billions nun
human philanthropy and plays I lie game according to the
rules laid down by Vandcrbill, (Sould and Fiske and per
fected by .Morgan and liockefeller.
Henry .Kord'.s fii'st step in crime was when lie under
took to pay his employes a living wage. Such action on
his part has produced discontent among laborers through
out the country. They will
unreasonable demand lor living wages and shorter hours.
Such things upset business.
Mr. Ford's last effort caps the climax. 7usl at the time
our noble plundercrats are making billions in supplying
the warring nations in Kurope, he wants to stop the fight
and cut off the income of our I'el low-citizens who arc furn
ishing the war material.
A e view as a criminal one who woulrt snatch a crust of
bread from a hungry man. Hut consider what Jlenry Ford
is doing grabbing millions from our Morgans, Rockefel
lers, l)u Pouts and Schwabs. And who is hungrier than
tlieyr A starving man would reluse to eat a morsel ol
bread soaked in human blood, but our plunder-boys are so
famished that every day they take in their yawning maw a
million or two soaked and steeped in the warm blood of
the lion-hearted youth of .Europe, driven into a senseless
war by the plunderbunds of that continent.
Jl.enry Ford may well beware. He is going lo Europe
lo carry a message of peace. "Wall street does not want
peace. Lombard street does not want peace. The finan
ciers ol Uerlin, I'aris and
want pence, hven some ol the ministers ol the gospel in
this country say the killing must go on till one side is
So why should Jlenry Ford interfere' lie stands con
demned. He receives a, thousand columns a day of sneers,
meant to burn and sear, from the pages of our great news
papers that always stand up for the rights of the masses
of the people of this country to live in silent, uncomplain
ing poverty, and lo burial in a pauper's grave.
JJul there is another phase of his efforts that makes
thoughtful men awake in the night and shudder in agoniz
ing fear. Suppose Henry Ford succeeds and ends the
high-toned sport the gentlemen of lOurope are now find
ing as gloriously entertaining as some of our gent leiiien are
finding interestingly profitable? It mav mean the cud
of glory wading through slaughter to a throne. It, may
mean the end of commercial supremacy steaming through
a sea of human blood to find a market for its wares, mois
tened with the tears and .spoiled with the blood drops of
the soldiers of industry.
II may mean the end of the rule of emperors, kings,
classes, politicians and millionaires. If may mean the end
of monkey dinners and starvihg children. It may mean
the end of hell and the beginning of heaven.
No wonder some cry, "Crucify him! .Crucify him!"
and follow his ship of peace with curses instead of prayers.
