Well, who said it was not? But who would believe it an enough to do so just because it can? The burly brute rapes his helpless simply because he is mean enough aud strong enough to do so. The iste society is not itself, however, unless it commits wholesale outrages upon he proletariat and afterwards gloats over its victims. in ti ' tt !°^ a Y°Ur h°nor' you have heard of this Law and Order League o these United States. It has been organized in Chicago and called a con- sen ators league or association. It is an organization of big tax-payers, if you we heard of it, and they come out and openly declare that they do not in- end to permit the Knights of Labor and the workingmen to come into power hrough the ballot box. That is their own declaration, made in the papers here at their meetings, in their reports. Of course I don't know anything lurtner about it. But I want to ask you this question, viz.: Don't you think a man who is not able to control his bread—and you know what I mean bv that has a poor chance to control his vote; not a very good chance to control his vote? In other words, don't you think those who control the industries of the country can and do control the votes of that country? Don't you think that a man who must sell his labor or starve will sell his vote when the same alternative is preeented? Does politics control wealth or wealth politics? Are the economically enslaved politically free? Your honor, political liberty with- out economic freedom is an empty phrase. The wage slave is a political freeman ; yes, he is free to choose from among his economic masters the one who shall rule and govern him. A choice of masters, that is all. So this "Law and Order " League proposes to control the ballots of their wage slaves. Now, then, the Haymarket, what of it? I had been away to Cincinnati. I went to Cincinnati Saturday night, May 1. I spoke there Sunday morning or during the day, at a great labor demonstration, an eight hour demonstration, a picnic of the workingmen at Cincinnati. They sent for me to come «*«■
