The fourth is Joseph Naylor, a Bolshevist by his own frank admission,
who is out to overturn the present
system of government. And the fifth
is R. J. Johns, one of the worst Red
   agitators in Cnaada, a Winnipeg man
THK WINNIPEG UK VOLUTION- who in 1917 at a publie meeting of the
MIX  STItlhK  Trades  and   Labor  Council   urged  a
  general   strike   against   conscription
(From the Winnipeg Citizen, June 9.)  and national registration.
For nearly a mouth, all eyes in
Canada have been turned upon Winnipeg. For nearly a month the citizens
of Winnipeg have been fighting whole-
Johns is one of the prime organizers
uf the Winnipeg strike and he also
went to Toronto and was largely in-
strumetal in bringing about the abor-
heartedly and with a very generous tive general strike there. Another
measure of Miccess. against a deter- local leader is Mrs. Helen Armstrong
mined attempt to establish Bolshevism who, according to her own word, has
and the rule of the Soviet here and spent some years of her life in an in-
then to expand it all ovor this Dom- sane asylum. Her husband, George
inion. Armstrong, another notorious "Red,"
in their fihbt, tlie citizens of Wlnni- is one of the local leaders, who drew
peg have contended against great odds,
When through tiie machinations of a
number Of confessed Bolshevists in
the Winnipeg Labor Temple, between
twenty and thirty thousand were betrayed into striking, the issue went
right to the heart of the great body
Of middle-class citizens whom the
strike leaders sought to deprive of tlie
very necessaries of life, of food and
water, and of light, police protection
and fire protection.
It aroused them to organization and
to action, and it sounded a note of
warning throughout Canada as to
what might be expected all over the
Dominion if this effort to fasten Bolshevism upon Winnipeg were .not decisively defeated. From the moment
that the general tie-up took place over
u dispute between some metal workers
and their employees, the general strike
waa recognized as an attempt at revolution—anil the citizens proceeded
to combat it as such.
The revolution in Winnipeg was the
outcome of a Bolshevist movement
started at Calgary last March and
directed by the I.W.W. organization in
the United States. That convention
elected a "Red Five" executive for
Canada. One of these is Victor Mfdg-
loy, of Vancouver, a notorious agitator, whose expulsion from Vancouver was demanded by returned soldiers last August wheu he and others
led a one-day general strike in that
city in memoriam to a military slacker
and defaulter who was shot while resisting arrest.
The second is W. A. Prltchard, of
Vancouver, >\ho participated in the
same unpatriotic escapade. The third
is Joseph Knight, of Edmonton, one
of the most notorious of Western agitators of the mining districts and a
man who demands the release from
internment of men who were actively
working in  Canada  for the German
upon himself the wrath of returned
men both over the conscription issue
and latterly, when returned soldiers
went oir a rampage against a Bolshevist meeting which sent greetings to
the Soviet government of Russia, and
'the Spartacans in Germany..
F. J. Dixon, a soap-box orator who
is a member of the Legislature, hail
to flee for his life and was battered by
returned soldiers when he addressed a
meeting in the Market Square In 1917,
counselling everybody to burn their
registration cards and to resist conscription. He is another ot the leaders of the lo<jal revolt. Still another
is John Queen, a Socialist alderman,
who participated in the same meetdi/js
and was oue of objects of the rcurued
soldiers' Ire,
Andrew Scoble and R. B Russell,
two more of the prime agitators in this
defiance of constituted authority, weie
active participants in the Red contention at Calgary which passed re-iola-
tions for the release of German agents,
others for the establishment of Soviet
government and proletarian dictatorship, and still further resolutions favoring minority dictatorship of labor
by manipulated votes such as that
which brought about the general strike
here.
A further leader is R. E. Bray, who
poses as a returned fighter, but who
never saw the firing lines, and who
told Premier Norris in cold-blood on
June 2, that he was a Bolshevist and
out for the establishment of Soviet
government in Winnipeg. The historical survey of facts and the editorial
expressions thereon, published below,
clearly present the viewpoint ot the
great middle-class of Winnipeg, the
innocent victims of the revolution:

: The Chicago Tribune, under the
I above heading, urrges that this great
: class be organized to stamp out llol-
I shevism. In so urging, the Chicago
I Tribune is advocating tlie spread of
i the "Citizens' Committee" idea, as it
I ls In Winnipeg, throughout the United
i States. The advice is good for the
| whole of Canada. The Chicago Tri-
i bune says:
| "America has a fair share of fan-
] atics and Inflamed theorists and of lg-
i norant aliens who have no roots in
| American life. The latter are our pun-
i lshment for our lack of foresight and
I civic intelligence. Together they are
I capable of grave disturbances at this
! time.
"The strike in Canada is worthy of
I serious thought and more—of serious
j action In this country.   In a most un-
I expected place what seems to be an
attempt at Industrial revolution took
; place,   and   Its   effects   have   spread
wider than could have heen believed.
The ostensible issues are a forty-four
week and the recognition of collective
bargaining.     But   the   real   Issue,   at
least In Winnipeg, If reports are accurate, Is recognition not of collective
bargaining, but of a Soviet control of
industries.
"That Is, Winnipeg unions, having
formed a central body composed of
representatives of all the local employees, demand that lt shall be recognized by all the employers and by
the community. This far transcends
collective bargaining and runs counter to the legitimate trade union Inlo
locals and internationals. From this
to a Soviet form of government is bat
a step.
