Transcript 38 ADDRESS OF SAMUEL FIELDBN. was something that was worth while for me to use my energies in propagating, and I did it. I could not help it. There are sloths that are sometimes called men who are never influenced by anything of that kind, but I was not of that character and that is the reason that I am here today. So intense and earnest was I at that time that I was at one and the same time the Sunday school superintendent of a little Sunday school, a class teacher, a local preacher, and what was called an exhorter; held four different positions. I came to the United States in 1868. I have preached in Ohio, and I came to Chicago in 1869. There are monuments of beauty, of stability, and evidences of progress in the city of Chicago, and you can hardly go through a street in this city that I have not dropped my sweat upon, that had been produced by the labor of my hands. And just here let me tell you that when the indictment had been procured against me and my comrades here, it was accompanied by the statement that these men had been deluding their dupes in order to make money out of them, 'when the trial was in progress the only man who could have answered the qunetion as to whether we had made money out of our agitation was Zeller, the secretary of the Central Libor Union, and when he was asked the question whether we ever received any money for speaking and organizing unions in that organization, the gentleman who had been instrumental in attaching that to the indictment in order to prejudice the people against us before the trial should come on against us— for there is nothing in the world that can prejudice a man so much as to be charged with having imposed upon some one for mercenary motives and this is creditable to society-when the trial came on and this man who could have testified to that, who could have substantiated it if it had been true was asked the question, each one of the gentlemen who were interested in its being proven true for their side of the case at once sprang to their feet and objected to the question being asked. We have been tried by a jury that has found us guilty. You will be tried by a jury now that will find you guilty Being of an inquiring disposition or turn of mind, and having observed that there was something wrong in our social system, I attended some meetings of workingmen and compared what they said with my own observation I knew there was something wrong. My ideas did not become settled as to what was the remedy, but when they did, I carried the same energy and the same determination to bring about that remedy that I had applied to ideas which I had possessed years before There is always a period in every individual's life when some sympathetic chord is touched by some other person. That is the open sesame that carries conviction. The ground may have all been prepared. The evidence mav all have been accumulated, but it has not formed any shape- in fact the child has not been born. The new idea has not impressed itself 'thoroughly whpn that sympathetic chord is touched, and the person is thoroughly convinced of the truth of the idea. It was so in my investigation of political econom I knew there was something wrong, but I did not know what the remedv wi' but discussing the condition of things and the different remedies one dav person said to me that Socialism meant equal opportunities—and that * the touch. From that time I became a Socialist; I learned more and JcZ what it was. I knew that I had found the right thing; and I had found th
