On all sides, he declared, capital Is ar
rayed against labor. ; "Men are getting
to have less and loss faith in courts.
Let us hope the time will soon corns
when they wUl have none," he declared.
He even found sure evidence of the
sinister and crafty hand of capital In
the fact that most of the lmtortant
events In the California and Indiana
labor troubles occurred on Saturdays.
Even Juries brought In verdicts of guilty
on Saturday at the behest of the "pow.
ers." he declared.
"Do you know, why that IsT" ha asked.
"H Is so that the story can ba In iim
for the Sunday newspapers. The Bun-
aay papers nave 10.OU0.dO0 more readers
than the dally papers."
Dsvld Coutta, local organizer for the
American Federation of Labor, presided
and Introduced the speakers.
Max Desettel, editor of the Omaha
Unionist, delivered a stirring address,
calling upon working men to avganlse
Into closer unions. The recent gas bombs
exploded In moving picture theaters, he
declared to be the outgrowth of attempt
of capital to keep down labor. Me de
scribed the condition of moving picture
operators who, he said, "working twelve
hours a day, seven days a week, are
slmost sure to lose their eyesight and
very likely to develop tuberculosis," and
