Hall of Local No. 644 United Mine Workers Hillsboro, Illinois, January 2 1915. At regular meeting, was adopted the following Resolution: Where as: We have information that compels us to doubt the truth of the charges against Joe Hill, or the fairness of his trial at Salt Lake City, Utah.

We believe that Joe Hill is innocent of murder, either directly or indirectly; that the trial jury was prejudiced; that the convicting evidence was false, and that the defendant's evidence was largely omitted. So often in the recent past, have Judicial proceedings been fraudulently based on false accusation and false testimony, that we have lost faith in the efficacy of submissive protest. Therefore be it resolved: We demand a new and fair trial for Joe Hill We demand that the Governor and Attorney General of Utah, act promptly in securing a new and fair trial for Joe Hill. Financial Secretary Harry Brown President Walter Abrams, Presiding Vice President F. H. Haley Treasurer C. J. Greer Frank Gib [Commissioner] Herman Vonderlack [Commissioner] lahao Carter
