h a humbug and a farce to have
ciiodidates go around the State
abusing each other and not discus

long and weary hours, day after

bi-vn thought to be Instituted for a
discussion of political and Indus

His bearers all yelled for strike, where

"Then tbe orator denounced weak

German striker who spoke for peace

tbe foreign strikers were on the war

strike districts, who were willing to

dogs, and they took up tbe cry, Death
to the dogs! Let tbe women kill the

the Slavs to be careful what they said.
