(who stood for murder of Idaho According to investigations, Wesley Everest was the only The Wobblies, American Legion and by Bic Montblanc An ugly chapter in American history happened shortly after the end of WWI in the little town of Centralia, Washington. As the 19th century was giving way to the 20th, the rise of unionism world wide and Bolshevism in the Soviet Union was causing upheaval in the industrial world. After the war the Associated Federation of Labor (AFL) was organizing American workers into a structure of trade unions based on the craft of the workers. Through strikes and negotiations with the ever growing large industrial capitalists they were able to gain concessions and improved salary and working conditions for their members. Fighting the AFL and the industrialists at every turn was the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) or as they were known, the Wobblies whose labor and social leaders Eugene Dubs, Mother (Mary Harris) Jones, and Joe Hill are still known today in labor history circles. The Wobblies believed in a unionized working class that was devoid of trade distinction, leadership by active participation of the mass of members and ultimate control of industrial production and a "rule or ruin" philosophy when it came to industrialists or other unions. Their union was open to all including women, all races, immigrants and the homeless. Governor Steunenberg) favored the actions of strike, propaganda and confrontation, won out against the more moderates who favored negotiations and involvement in the political system. Haywood would be convicted in 1918 along with 100 other defendants by Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis (later Baseball Commissioner) of violating the Espionage Act. Haywood escaped to the Soviet Union and ultimately the violence against the organization spawned by its confrontational stances which was a factor leading to its ultimate downfall. The Wobblies were sometimes "violently" opposed to America's entry into WWI. "Capitalists of America, we will fight against you, not for you[ There is not a power in the world that can make the working class fight if they refuse." It is not surprising that when Veterans were returning from Europe after the war that they would not necessarily align themselves with an organization that was so closely aligned with the Bolsheviks and the recent Russian revolution and the overthrow of the Czar. Warren Grimm was a Veteran in the small town of Centralia, Washington. He was opposed to the Wobblies as he was a commander in Siberia during the war and had a lot of experience with the Bolsheviks. Grimm was also the Commander of the American Legion Post in Centralia and was active in speaking against the IWW feeling they were a subversive group. Additionally, business leaders, lumber companies and the large number of Veterans in the Wobblies had been arming themselves under the guise of protection because of the threats and violence against them and particularly the street violence against them the previous year. Armed union members were inside the Roderick and in two hotels across the street as well as an overlooking hill with command of the parade route. As Commander Grimm was passing the Roderick, Wobbly Eugene Barnett fired a rifle from across the street killing Grimm. Another shot was fired from the hill hitting and killing another Legionnaire standing close to Grimm. Contrasting reports have the Legionnaires first attacking the Roderick with the Wobblies firing in self defense. Regardless, firing from all directions from the Wobblies caused the Legionnaires to charge them. Two more Legionnaires were shot prior to overpowering the Wobblies in the Roderick. Wobbly member Wesley Everest fired his revolver wounding one and killing another Legionnaire as he was escaping out the back door. Legionnaire Alva Coleman chased Everett with a revolver until he was shot. He passed the gun to Dale Hubbard who caught up with Everett ordering him to drop his weapon. Everest fired on Hubbard and then pistol whipped him to death before he was captured by other pursuers. The captured Wobblies were taken to the local jail. That night a large mob appeared outside the jail. Power to Centralia was cut off and drivers were ordered by the mob to turn out their headlights. The mob broke Wobbly killed. Three Legionnaires and one IWW member were wounded by gunfire. Seven IWW members were convicted of second degree murder. One was found to be insane but was eventually transferred to state prison. No one f.rom the American Legion or the lynching party was indicted for any crime. Sadly, nearly two years to the day, the Centralia Massacre was preceded by the Everett (another Washington town near Seattle) Massacre in an event involving the Wobblies coming to the aid of striking workers and local police and townspeople in another sad event in American history.
