Some things are priceless, chief among * Inch is life and liberty. A freeman is not for sale or hire. 1 oil accuse the Anarchists of using or advising the use of force; it is false, uut of your own mouth you stand condemned." The present existing state oi society is based upon and maintained and perpetuated by force. This capitalistic system that we have today would not exist twenty-four hours if it v>ere not held together by the bayonets and the clubs of the militia and police. £o Bir, it would not! Now, sir, we object to this. We protest a^inst it. I l°Z aTSe U8' °r the Proee^tion here accuses us, of that veiy thing which they themselves are guilty of. It is the old, old story of .Esop's fable, the lamb standing in the water and the wolf above him ; he looks up; the water has run down, the wolf stands above him; he looks down there toward he lamb, and says, " Ho, there 1 you are making the water muddy." The lamb observes, " My friend, I am below you, in the stream." " That doesn't matter; you are my meat, anyhow." And he goes for him and eats him up. lhat is just the way of the capitalist toward the Anarchist. You are doing the very thing you accuse us of, and against which we protest. Now, any institution that is based upon force is self-condemned ; it does not need any argument, in my opinion, to prove it. The political economy that prevails was written to justify the taking of Bomething for nothing; it was written to hide the blushes of the rich when ihey look into the faces of the poor. These are they who brand Anarchy as a compound of "incendiarism, robbery and murder;" these are they who despoil the people; they who love power and hate equality ; they who dominate, degrade and exploit their fellowmen, they who employ brute force, violence and wholesale murder, to perpetuate and maintain their privileges. On July 14, Juryman Hamill took his seat in the box here, and the question was asked him : Q. " Do you believe in Socialism, Anarchism or Communism?" A. " Some of the principles I believe in." Lawyer Ingham will remember the juryman said that. Q, " Do you believe in capital punishment, or hanging for murdei ? " A. "I do not." ' < l " Do you believe in self-defense? "
