    This letter was sent by Carleton H. Parker to M. P. Goodner on October 13, 1917. In it, Parker refers to a statement written by Goodner about the labor situation in Washington State, which had been sent to Parker for his feedback before Goodner submitted it to the National Council of Defense. Parker suggests some minor alterations to the statement: he reminds Goodner of Henry Suzzallo's investigation of allegations that the Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.) had been setting fires, and that Suzzallo had found those charges to be groundless. He likes much of what Goodner has written, although he encourages a softening of the language where the I.W.W. is connected with violence, and he feels it is important to emphasize that arresting the union's leadership is justifiable as "a war emergency", but that it is not a tactic that has a "permanent value of justice in it". less
