ABSTRACT
I am afraid I cannot say anything in praise of the Dorchester martyrs. Martyrs are a nuisance in Labor movements. The business of a Labor man is not to suffer, but to make other people suffer until they make him reasonably comfortable. A Labor agitator who gets into the hands of the police is inexcusable.
