"When 'Comrade' Lovett was up for trial
he used the old Communist tactics of de-
manding a jury trial. We have checked up
on the trial and find some peculiar cir-
cumstances. He was tried in the jury court,
but there was no jury trial. Judge Gut-
knecht, the judge of the Boys' Court, was
brought down to the jury court and turned
both Lovett and McKenna loose and cau-
tioned the State's Attorney not to try to
file further charges against the two for in-
citing to riot. Lovett brought with him to
court, probably as character witnesses,

MAcDONALD, J. RAMSAY: leader of

pelled and repudiated by Labour Party,
1931, for his supposed "whitened" attitude

he called "Bolshevism gone wild"; act. sec.
2nd International (Socialist) 1920-2; au-
thor of numerous books on Socialism ; Bos-
well Ptg. & Pub. Co. of London, in "Potted
Biographies," states that during the War
"The Berliner Tageblatt said, 'Among those
who systematically combat the English pol-
icy, Ramsay MacDonald occupies first
place." (his writings were circulated in
Germany) ; quoting further from Potted
Biog.: "A Nonconformist minister of
Leicester wrote in local paper August 1915:
'You insult this nation, His Majesty the
King, and his Minister by your words. . . .
You have no moral right to enjoy liberty
and protection under the British flag, or
sleep another night defended by the life-
blood of British men.' In June, 1917, Mac-
Donald, assisted by Snowden, Smillie,
Ammon, Anderson, Roden Buxton, Mrs.
Despard, Mrs. Snowden, and many East
End Jews, held a conference at Leeds, and
agreed to the formation of Workmen's and
Soldiers' Councils, on Russian lines, to end
the war by outbreak of a revolution which



would paralyse our military operations.**
. . . "He was appointed to the committee
for acting and creating thirteen Soviets"
. . . "As leader of the I.L.P. he was fully
committed to the permanent policy which
has corrupted trade unionism, and is that
there shall be no amicable relation between
Labour and Capitalism short of the total
abolition of the Capitalist system." . . . "In
1925 delegates from Moscow were in Eng-
land arranging with members of the Tracks
Union Congress for strikes which might de-
velop into revolution; and on 1 May, 1926,
the great General Strike was declared at a
meeting of trade union leaders, when Mac-
Donald said: 'We (the Socialist Party) are
there in the battle with you, taking our
share uncomplainingly until the end has
come and right and justice has been done.'
He and J. H. Thomas then joined in sing-
ing 'The Red Flag'; and he became a co-
opted member of the Strike Committee,
which was later charged in a Cabinet paper
with 'having held a pistol at the head of
Constitutional Government.' " (see also
"Independent Labour Party").

MARX, KARL: German Jew; born
1818; descendant of long line of Rabbis;
real name Mordechia; a lifelong grief to
his parents because of his violent temper,
notoriety, domineering nature, poverty,
wretchedness and "disregard for everything
decent" (J. Spargo, "Karl Marx, His Life
and Work") ; saturated at college with
Hegelian atheism and its motto, "Whatever
exists is worth destroying"; his reputation
as an aggressive atheist and violent rebel
thwarted his efforts to secure a Prussian
governmental or academic post after leav-
ing college and he became the more enraged
at all those more prosperous than himself;
in 1842 became editor of the Rheinisch
Zeitung, which was suppressed by the Govt.
1843 ; he then moved to Paris where he
associated with anarchist Michael Bakunin,
Friederich Engels, and imbibed French so-
cialism from Proudhon; expelled from
France, Jan. 1845, he moved to Brussels
where he labored for three years to organ-
ize an international communist league to
carry through an immediate bloody revolu-
tion, for which league he and Engels wrote
the Communist Manifesto (1848) ; he par-
ticipated in the French and German revolu-
tionary disturbances of 1848; banished
from Cologne, June, 1849, from France,
July, 1849, he then went to England where
he lived in extreme destitution until his
capitalistic friend, Engels, gave him a dole
of 350 a year (out of the proceeds,
according to his own theory of "value,"
of the robbery of Lancashire work-
ingmen). During his 34 years in England,
he read, wrote, organized and controlled
the First International, and quarrelled with
his fellow revolutionaries (particulars con-
cerning fourteen embittered brawls are
given by Spargo) ; died May 5, 1883, after
about 15 yrs. of ill health.
