Transcript ADDRESS OF LOT IS U\'< 29 » r e 1- lt ir- ou lOt he ,nd th- rof- n- nt! r to e of ibat your they E ad mitted to me that my hat and books have been stolen from him in his office- stolen by policemen. These are your defenders of property rights! The detectives again, who arrested me, forced their way into my room like house breakers, under false pretences, giving the name of a carpenter, Lorenz, of Burlington street. They have sworn that I was alone in my room, therein perjuring themselves. You have not subpoenaed this lady, Mrs. Klein, who was present, and could have sworn that the aforesaid detectives broke into my room under false pretences, and that their testimonies are perjured. But let us go further. In Schaack we have a captain of the police, and he also has perjured himself. He has sworn that I admitted to him being present at the Monday night's meeting, whereas, I distinctly informed him that I was at a carpenter's meeting at Zepf's Hall. He has sworn again that I told him that I had learned how to make bombs from Herr Most's book. That, also, is perjury. Let us go still a step higher among these representatives of "law and order." Grinnell and his associates have permitted perjury, and I say that they have done it knowingly. The proof has been adduced by my counsel, and with my own eyes I have seen Grinnell point out to Gilmer, eight days before he came upon the stand, the persons of the men whom he was to swear against. While I, as I have stated above, believe in force for the sake of winning for myself and fellow workmen a livelihood such as men ought to have, Grinnell, on the other hand, through his police and other rogues, has suborned perjury in order to murder seven men, of whom I am one. Grinnell had the pitiful courage, here in this courtroom, where I could not defend myself, to call me a coward ! The scoundrel! A fellow who has leagued himself with a parcel of base hireling knaves, to bring me to the gallows. Why? For no earthly reason save a contemptible selfishness—a desire to " rise in the world "—to " make money," forsooth 1 This wretch—who, by means of the perjuries of other wretches is going to murder seven men—is the fellow who calls me "cowardI" And yet you blame me for despising such "defenders of the law"—such unspeakable hypocrites! Anarchy means no domination or authority of one man over another, yet you call that "disorder." A system which advocates no Buch "order" as shall require the services of rogues and thieves to defend it you call "disorder." The judge himself was forced to admit that the State's attorney had not been able to connect me with the bomb throwing. The latter knows how to get around it, however. He charges me with being a " conspirator." How does he prove it? Simply by declaring the International Workingmen's Association to be a " conspiracy." I was a member of that body, so he has the charge securely fastened on me. Excellent! Nothing is too difficult for the genius of a State's attorney! It is hardly incumbent upon me to review the relations which I occupy to my companions in misfortune. My friend Spies has already explained how we became acquainted with each other. I can say truly and openly that I am not as intimate with my fellow prisoners as I am with Captain Schaack. The universal misery, the ravages of the capitalistic hyena have brought
