Massacre Leader, Pat Ham-

By Federated Press.
ALLIANCE. Neb., Aug. 14.—First
y direct word since his deportation
Vfrom Colorado came here from Wil-
liam Z. Foster, secretary, Trade Un-
ion Education league, and member
executive board, The Federated
Press, when he stopped off to ex-
plain by wire his failure to fill an
Omaha engagement August 8.
Foster described the kidnaping in
Denver by the Colorado rangers, the
state constabulary. He denied the
picturesque details added by the ro-
mancers of the press but confirmed
the confiscation of a suitcase of
printed matter, which did not, how-
ever. contain "I. W. W. literature."
Hill Fill Dates.
He will fill the dates, remaining be-
fore his return to Chicago and will
make an effort to meet some of those
he was forced to cancel because of
his illegal deportation.
Denver labor men who had made
preparations for a big meeting for
Foster were disappointed, the ban-
ishment having occurred just before
the meeting time. All they could
discover was that the contabulary
had put Foster on a train headed for
Cheyenne, Later it was learned that
the railroad had been instructed not
to allow him to leave the train in-
side the borders of Colorado.
Pat Hamrock, who led the murder-
ous Colorado national guard in the
massacre of miners' women and chil-
dren during the Ludlow strike, has
since been promoted to be adjutant
general of the rangers. Hamrock
drew attention at the beginning of
the present miners* strike by an-
nouncing that he would fight the un-
ion with poison gas, airplanes and
any other weapons. Hamrick had
this to say of Foster after the depor-
"Foster is one of the most danger-
ous men in the country today. We
have characterized hlra as an unde-
sirable In Colorado, and we decided
to have him keep right on going
without any stop in Denver. He
would have been sure to start some
trouble and law breaking here. Just
for the sake of safety we decided
Foster would not need his inflam-
matory literature while on his jour-
ney out of the state and we con-
fiscated it. We told him he could get
a lot more in the east if he needed
it there, but that it would not do him
any good in Colorado."
Foster's return to Chicago, origin-
ally scheduled for August 11, has
been delayed a few days.

tion will be held in Chicago next

New Economic Policy Given

Federated Press Staff Correspondent.
MOSCOW. Aug. 14.—Under the in-
fluence ot the new economic policy
the problem of crime and its detec-
tion and punishment is coming to be
little different in Russia from any
other country. Perhaps the only dif-
ference is that the regular police and
detective forces in Moscow never
handle political offenders at all. as
do the police in America lu arrest-
ing communists or "wobblies. ' These
come in Hussia under the state po-
litical department, a special organ;
while the police and detectives deal
only with the ordinary forms of rec-
ognized crime and have the usual
criminal experts, rogues gallery, etc.,
for catching them.
During the active time of the rev-
olution, when little property was on
display, there was little crime rob-
beries especially were almost un-
heard of. The frequent reports of
correspondents that Moscow was the
safest city in Europe were abso'utcly
Last winter, however, with the
growing Inequality of fortune and
(he greater display of wealth, a
crime wave started which assumed
Serious proportions. Nikclaev, chief
of the Moscow detective force, has
Issued a statement regarding the
subsidence of said wave.
"Lessening of crime is a fact," he
said. "Street roboeries have \de-
creased 90 per cent since the begin-
ning of the year, and robberies of in-
stitutions 70 per cent. Murders, un-
fortunately. still continue at the
same average of two 01 three per
week, usually relatives killing rela-
tives. and, as a rule, on economic
] grounds to get money. This kind of

"The reasons for the decrease of
robberies and holdups is first, that
! :t50 professional criminals have been
1.".ken out of Moscow to various
places of detention; these were nil
rien with from two to ten crimes in
their record. Then the summer.eve-
nings are light and make crime less
easy. Also our strenuous policy,
which included the execution, in all,
of 50 persons guilty of robbery with
violence or threatened murder, has
scared the criminals out of Moscow.
"Many criminals have left for the
south, where we see occasional evi-
dence that 'Moscow specialists' are
1 operating. Many have gone to Nijn
.Novgorod to the great fair. We shall
i try to see that they are properly re-
t ceived there. Some important crlmi-

Mexican Workers To
Boycott U. S. Goods
To Free Prisoners
Magon, Rivera and Other Mexican Politicals Still Jailed By
Harding—Mexican Rail Workers Will Not Carry
MEXICO CITY, Aug. 14 -A nation
wide boycott of Americans and
American goods is scheduled for the
middle of August. To effect the re-
lease from Leavenworth and other
American prisons of Rlcardo Flores
Magon. Librado Rivera arnj other
Mexican politicals held by the Hard-
ing administration. Mexican workers
are preparing to adopt a Ohandi
policy of complete non-cooperation.
The Confederalcon Region Obrera
(Mexican Confederation of Labor) is
initiating the action, being enthusi-
astically supported by the Confeder-
ation of Railroad Unions and the
General Federation of Workers.
About 1.000.000 are involved.
The ramifications of the antici-
pated boycott are tremendous. Rail-
road workers will refuse to operate
trains carrying American merchan-
dise or passengers; stevedores and
longshoremen will not unload ves-
sels bearing American products.
Mexican laborers will cease working
in American owned concerns—an
action which will strike severely
the large oil companies. Hotel and
restaurant workers will no longer
serve American guests; chauffeurs
rill refuse to drive American pas-
sengero or work for American em-
ployers. Furthermore, an extensive
campaign is to be initiated among
Consumers urging them to buy no
American made articles.
The workers of .Mexico are in-
censed at news of the recent and
repeated refusals of Attorney Gen-
eral Daugherty to release Magon
and Rivera. Both men are widely
admired, loved and respected all
over Mexico. Knowledge that cata-
ract slowly closes the eyes of Magon
and tuberculosis eats away the
lungs of Rivera spurs Mexican labor
to spirited response. Such indigni-
ties and lack of magnanimity as the
refusal to allow Magon to write
have further aroused the people.
Ileart in Pocketbook.
A volume entitled "For the Lib-
erty of Rlcardo Flores Magon" is
being widely circulated. It contains
extracts from the writings of Magon,
the manifesto which formed the evi-
dence on which he was convicted,
correspondence between Magon, his
