Transcript American workers will get only wages that will afford the poorest living that they can be compelled to accept. Do you want foreign trade in order that you may work more at bare-living wages.? Do you want to be taxed for military purposes as foreigners who have fled here were never taxed at home in time of peace? We cannot whip all of Europe, yet all of Europe will combine against us, if necessary, to get back its trade. And our great capitalists will, if necessary, plunge us into war to hold their trade. A tremendous Socialist vote this fall will be a warning to our capitalists to stop! Every other party is in favor of the Wilson military program or something worse. We beg you to help us to save the United States of America from those who, for mere gain, would afflict it with war. THE WORLD WIDE WAR TRUST From the Speech of Hon. Clyde H. Tavenner of Illinois in the House of Representatives, February 15, 1915. "It is the ring of war-trafficking private arms and ammunition firms who are endangering the peace and welfare of 100,000,000 people in order that they may satisfy their greed for profit." * * * "The armor ring is the Bethlehem Steel Co., the Midvale Steel Co., and the Cqrnegie Steel Co. These three firms, exclusive of their subsidiary war-trafficking auxiliaries, have drawn down since 1887 from the Navy Department alone for the single item of armor plate, contracts aggregating $95,628,- 912. To these we must add the Dupont poweder trust, which has had no competitors in the sale of smokeless powder to the government. The Powder Trust has obtained contracts aggregating $25,000,000 since 1905." "The government has been paying to this War Trust $17.50 for a 3-8-inch common shrapnel, when it is manufacturing the identical article at Frankford for $7.94." 50 ,
