    Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of California F.W. Henshaw writes to Washington State Senator Miles Poindexter to discuss the I.W.W. (Industrial Workers of the World) and how to deal with anarchist groups in America. Henshaw discusses his "special knowledge" of the crimes committed by these organizations. He proposes to launch an independent investigation of I.W.W. activities and to secure "evidence against the criminal in its Order", in order to gain information that can be used against them as well as name the ring leaders of the party. Henshaw names his choice for the chief investigator as well. He asks Poindexter to work with the U.S. Department of Justice to set up this investigation. less
