The two trusts


Library of Congress Prints and Photographs


Print shows two large male figures, one, wearing business attire, is labeled "Commercial Trust," he is holding paper labeled "Order to Raise Wages" and the other labeled "Labor Trust" is armed with a bomb, a handgun, and a rifle, and is holding paper labeled "Order to Strike." Behind the "Labor Trust" are unemployed families, explosions, and anarchy; behind the "Commercial Trust" is order, as men head for factories. Caption: Commercial Trust (to Labor Trust) - While you are denouncing me, why don't you include yourself? You use violence and destroy property, while I use peaceful methods and not only lower prices but raise wages, as the statistics of the last fifteen years will show.
