Transcript ADDRESS OF APCl'ST SPIES. 15 * ^an- 1 to the the •eaee nan- lack and Prea- iiety, This full, >i the iation I self. 3eton under » vidua! r baric r'maB- longer ce and | bed to saw >n, etc. i>f capi- , or So- ind the roducee •acter of the articles read from the Arbeiler-Zeitung. Let me read to you an editorial which appeared in the Fon du Lac Common wealth, in October, 188c>, a Republican paper. If I am not mistaken the court is Republican, too. "To arms, Republicans! Work in every town in Wisconsin for men not afraid of firearms, blood or dead bodies, to preserve peace [that is the * peace' I have been Bpeaking of] and quiet; avoid a conflict of parties to prevent the administration of public affairs from falling into the hands of such obnoxious men as James G. Jenkins. Every Republican in Wisconsin should go armed to the polls next election day. The grain stacks, houses and barns of active Democrats should be burned; their children burned and their wives outraged, that they may understand that the Republican party is the one which is bound to rule, and the one which they should vote for, or keep their vile carcasses away from the polls. If they still persist in going to the polls, and persist in voting for .Jenkins, meet them on the road, in the bush, on the hill, or anywhere, and shoot every one of these base cowards and agitators. I? they are too strong in any locality, and succeed in putting their opposition votes in the ballot box, break open the box and tear in shreds their discord- breathing ballots. Burn them. This is the time for effective work. Yellow fever will not catch among Morrison Democrats; so we must use less noisy and more effective means. The agitators muBt be put down, and wThoever opposes us does so at his peril. Republicans, be at the polls in accordance with the above directions, and don't stop for a little blood. That which made the solid eouth will make a solid north!" What does your honor say to these utterances of a " law and order" organ —a Republican organ? How does the Arb Zi itung compare with this? The book of John Most, which was introduced in court, I have never read, and I admit that passages were read here that are repulsive—that must be repulsive to any person who has a heart. Rut I call your attention to the fact that these passages have been translated from a publication of Andrieux, the ex-prefect of police, Paris,by an exponent of your order! Have the representatives of your order ever stopped at the sacrifice of human blood? Never! it has been charged that we (the eight here) constituted a conspiracy. I would reply to that that my friend Lingg I had seen but twice at meetings of the Central Labor Union, where I went as a reporter, before I was arrested. 1 had never spoken to him. With Engel, I have not been on speaking terms for at least a year. And Fischer, my lieutenant, (?) used to go around and make speeches against me. So much for that. Your honor has said this morning, "we must learn their objects from what they have said and written," and in pursuance thereof the court has read a number of articles. Now, if I had as much power as the court, and were a lawr abiding citizen, I would certainly have the court indicted for some remarks made during this trial. I will say that if I had not been an Anarchist at the beginning of this trial I would be one now. I quote the exact language of the court on one occasion. " It does not necessarily follow that all laws are foolish and bad because a good many of them arc so." That is treason, sir! if we are to believe the court and the State's attorney. But, aside from that, 1 cannot see how we shall distinguish the good from the bad laws. Am I to judge of that'.'
