Transcript 54 ADDRESS OF SAMUEL FIELDEN. wayside! I have reference to the introduction of machinery—twenty out of twenty-five turned out of employment. Are they not turned out upon the wayside? Any question about it? If they were laws that did not turn men out upon the wayside, and I knew that they did not, I would not tell anybody that they did. Thomas Cooper, a chartist in England, was once visited in his old age by a friend of his. A little girl came up to him with a book in her hand with pictures in it, opened the front of it and showed him the fly leaf, and she said, "Mr. Cooper, write something for me." And Mr. Cooper wrote: "Love truth, my child, love truth; It will gladden thy morn of youth, And in the noon of life, Though it cost thee pain and strife To keep the truth in its brightness. Still cleave to thy uprightness." If I am to be convicted-hanged for telling the truth-the little child that kneels by it* mother's side on the West Side today, and tells its mother that she wants her papa to come home, and to whom I had intended, as soon as its prattling tongue should commence to talk, to teach that beautiful sentiment- ha the child had better never be taught to read ; had better never be taught that sentiment-to love truth. If we are to be convicted of murder because we dare to tell what we think is the truth, then it would be better that every one of your school houses were reduced to the ground and not one stone left upon another If you teach your children to read, they will acquire curiosity from what they read They will think, and they will search for the meaning of this and that. They will arrive at conclusions. And then if thev rtehe££ v,?■ t tel11each other what i8 truth«wi^Sy »ss ib the truth. That is the sum of my offending. It turns them out upon the wayside when it is used as it is. v Mr Powderly, in his official address to a large assembly of the representatives o labor at Richmond, Va„ said the other day tha't Anarchw tl legitimate product of monopoly. I have said you must abolish the private property system. Mr. English said that I said "it >,„/ pmate you." Probably if I said «i? had no mty "1 ^"^ 1E,"U?" the sentence in that way. I probably said, "So you ought no^to have Ly mercy." Is it doubted by anybody that the system has no mercv? D e it not pursue ita natural course irrespective of whom it hurts or upon whom confers benefits The private property system then, in my opin on beZ a system that only subserves the interests of a few, and can on^ ub^erve fhe interests of a few, has no mercy. It cannot ston f™ ♦»,„ •7 .Dserve tue a sentiment.
