The startling story! of^the double
suicide tragedy in the\"Qde'en's hotel,

great interest here owing to the recent residence here of thes two who
so suddenly ended their lives Friday
night. The Inthouts lived in Fernie
for about a. month, leaving here after
midnight Thursday on the eastbound
flyer for Calgary. They came' here
from Spokane, where they were married on the 20th of August, Just one'
month before ■ the fateful 20th, when
they suicided iii the Queen's Hotel 'n
Calgary.' . Inthout had been .working
as a telegrapher in the Great Northern station here, but had/been discharged for irregularity of cat tendance to
his business, and was despondent.- K2

the need-for .Italians to show in

being raised for an aeroplane or dirigible it would-.be a fitting tribute if
Kernic would take up a similar subscription. He ,said he' had visited

was both hard and dangerous, accidents 1 occurred • frequently, and ur_r-

The inquest on,.-the late Henry
Walters was held on Monday evening, Coroner Bleasdell presiding.
Thc jury sworn were: Messrs, James
Robertson, William Mills, Con.
Whclan, ' Thomas Robertson, Fred
Ingram, H..C.'McDonald.
-The first witness called Was Edward Holingshe'ad, 'who stated that
on thc morning of- the accident at
3.20 o'clock he heard the fall of
rock, and started to run out when he
heard the deceased call three times,
"Hurry up, Ned." He then went to
the rescue, and. found Walter's' two
wrists jammed fast in thc rock and
rock all alongside of him'. There was
about^three carloads of1 coal'and
rock around him. After they had
shovelled some of it away and got
Walters out,he,.was unconscious. He
was then taken on a stretcher tojhe
doctor's surgery. '      ;   <
Fire Boss W. R. Puckey' gave evidence of his hearing of the accident'
and rushing, to the scene, where he
found.-Walters unconscious.    >
Dr. Workman-gave evidence as to
thc deceased being brought to his
surgery. After > examining him^.he
found au abrasion on the chest and
his.extremities were co!d.7He examined "his heart, but could get . no
response. "However, thlnkingo there
might still be-life in the body," said
the-doctoral gave him a hypodermic of half, a grain of strychnine,
and got the" pulmotor to work for

who had 'anything to bring, to the
notice of the Consul-Gcneral should
come forward," Mr. Scalzo addressed'
thc audience. Mr, Scalzo' began his,
speech'by .lifting up his empty sleeve,
and pointing to it said that here waa
his tribute to capitalism, and hoped
that the Consul-Gcneral, as he had
stated, would give him some legal
advice regarding what. should be
done with one who, like himself, was
practically a subject for the'scrap
heap, as he wasonly now a part of
ixk man,   <
In the evening a banquet was tendered His ExcolUmcy at the Nap-
anee Hotel, when a thoroughly - enjoyable time was spent. Speeches
were interspersed , with toasts,
amongst those taking part being:

chest and abdomen. The organs of
the chest were healthy, except the
heart; this was enlarged and dilated^
There was no disease of the blood
vessels of the heart. There was no:
disease of the abdominal organs that
would .cau.e sudden, death. My
opinion is that thc man died of heart
disease. The , heart in condition - as
above may cause death as a result of
a slight,shock-or might die suddenly
without -any palpable reason. His
death, in my«opinion, was d,ie to
shock,occasioned'by the accident in
the mines." ''-
The, jury were then left to orlng" in
a verdict, and after about 20 minutes
they arrived at' the following decision: "Henry Walters came to - his
death on the mo.rning of Friday,
September 20, 1912, at or about 3-15
a.m. in No.'s.Mme at Coal.Cretk,
from heart disease accelerated * by
shock occasioned by an ac.idertt in
said mine." t
The late Henry Walters was a
native of Wingates, County Duriiam,-
England. He served'21 years and.8
months in the Durham Light Infrn-
lry( thc greater portion as bandsman,
having "enlisted as drummer in J889,
and retired on a staff-serge l'.it's pension. He leaves a ,wifc and child' in
London, England, and a brother
holds the rank of arum-major Inv the
-somerset Lfght Infantry. A' life-
lung friend of the deceased living in
Coal Creek" is Edi English.' '   "
that life^vas extinct.---!.,found" nothing previously td<cause death. At
the time'I considered his death was
due to heart' failure-occasioned ;by
the shock, andil have "no reason to

until the following afternoon to hear
'the evidence of Dr.. H. Anderson,
who held a postmortem on the body
of the deceased. At thc resumed inquest the following diy Dr, Anderson, being sworn, stated:  ,

7 LAWRENCE/- Mass.; ' Sept. - 22.—
William D. .Haywood, a general organizer of the'Industrial Worfers'ofUhe
World and a member of the National
Executive Committee of tlie Socialist
party, who was ' arrested yesterday
shortly after he got through' addressing a gathering, of more than ,12,000
persons on the Boston Common to protest against tho. further imprisonment
of Ettor and Giovannitti," two' of the
leaders' of tho strike of 22,000' textile
operatives which .took place here last
winter, was arraigned before Judge
Qulnn In the Superior Court' here, today.
' Hay wood, pleaded not guilty to two
Indictment^' charging .him with'"conspiracy" In connection with "the great
textile strike:- Ho was held for .trial
under $1.000-bonds.'' .No date'for the
trial was set. '   '   -   \
"The arraignment of Haywood took
only five. minutes. He waived the
rendirig of the Indictments which contain .twenty-two • counts, and when1
asked if he, was guilty said.
"Not' guilty., I am.only guilty.'of
trying to' get the good things of life
for. the mill slaves." .  "y      y
Prank Plttochelll, of Lawrence,
went, on Haywood's bond. Attorney
J.- C. S.. ..Malioney asked for an'immediate trial, but Judge Quinn - an-,
riounced thafhe would.first have to
confer with District Attorney Attwill.
This means that Haywood will not go
ot trial until after the Ettor and Giovannitti trials, .which start here two
weeks from today. '
The  Ridiculous  Indictment
Haywood is, jointly indicted with
Ettor, Giovannitti and Ettore Gian7
nini, it being charged that they and
other persons on January 11 and other
dates up to January 30, "contriving
and.intending tb injure divers persons
whose names are to. the jurors -unknown and who were 'thenand there
employees of the Wood worsted mills,
did unlawfully conspire, combine,
contrive, confederate and agree, together by", threats to' said divers per-,
sons, by the use of force, by intimidation and by assault to prevent said
divers persons from continuing iii the
employment of said-, worsted' mills,
against the' peace of the Commonwealth aforesaid>and contrary.to the
form of statute In such case made and
provided." ,     >    -
In a statement Haywood said: "I
am guilty of conspiring to get more
of the good things of'life for the people who work in the mills.
"If a man has to go .to jail for that
kind of conspiracy, I am willing to go.1
This charge of conspiring, to keep men
from working in tlie'niills.ls a terrible
thing. I wonder what is to become
of us if it proves to be. a crimej All
labor leaders, all. honest union offi-,
cials who lead strikes'against oppression, are in danger- of, going to jail
for conspiracy if ,they provo me *o
have committed a crime.
"I /have' asked for- a speedy .trial
because this, matter* ought to be
thrashed out quickly. . I intend to be
here for the Ettor, trial; I am going
to be a spectator at that trial. Then
I,liope to be tried myself."        • ■
."What0 about a demonstration .for
Ettor on the day of the trial?" he was
asked. / •   '       y
'.'There .ought, to be something like
this.".     • '
, "What' about the general strike?"
• "I hope there will be one'    I can't
say anything more how." ' "
Drives 20,000 Girls into
Wlite Slaveiy Each
WASHINGTON,', Sept. 18.—"From
15,000 to 20,000 girls bet.ween the ages
are native-born-Americans, are the
victims each year of the'white slave
traffic in' the United States..
"About 50,000 man and women make
an 'easy' living every year selling,
buying and living on the earnings of,
these gjrls." " ' .
.- Those are the conservative statements ' of Stanley W. Finch, special
United States commissioner for the
suppression of the white slave traffic,
made in Washington a few days ago!
Finch has 'been an attorney and official
in the department ot justice for twenty years. •   ■
;-Put8 Total at 250,000
"So easy Is the, living to ho made
put of the white slave traffic that con-
BcloncclesB crooks of all kinds in tho
country have turned to' trafficking ln
young glrlB," Bald Finch. "So great
has been the dotneBtlo traffic ln women in the last few years that today
scattered throughout the United Statos there.are, conservatively estimated
no less than 250,000 women living a
life of shame ln semi-public or officially tolerated places of disrepute."
and England were'rea'dy to'fly at each
other's throat, last summer, it .was the
Socialist party of Germany that: assembled 200,000 men in Berlin one Sunday
afternoon and declared' that if there
were a war'the Socialists bf Germany
would not help fight'it.. It was generally admitted at thetime lhat the attitude of the-'German Socialists more
than anything else,.,was responsible'for
the avoidance of war. ' -   '    '-
Socialists are equally pacific when
considering the best means by which
Socialism may be brought about. Socialists are.; first, last and all the time
in.,favor only of political action and
trade union action. Wherever there
is a; free ballot, they, believe in using-
it, to the exclusion bfTbombs and bullets. , That is ,why ■ they begin- one
campaign the'next morning after the
closing of' another.;, They, are busy
with the printing press and their tongues all the while. ' For them, there is
no closed season.   -7 • >,   _
I know a good many Socialists,'but
I do not know one who advocates anything, but the, ballot and' the'trade
union, nor one who would not risk his
life, if necessar.', to prevent the uso
of violence. '-Socialists realize only too
well that Socialism can be reared only
u'ponr'understariding, and that, the use
of dynamite would turn the minds' of
■ne ,'_oi.le against th-.-m Lor a bundled
years. .M.y. Si.cia'i.-t v-ho belie'os
otherwise is the snmo sort of a po.nn-
Hal <.TU-.ir.a.i that can bf- fi't.nd in nny

"st party would repndk'._« on., .if its
own members who should commit a
great crime. -
Socialists, as a party,', stand for'violence only in the samo way that Abraham Lincoln stood for it. If the-So-
cialists should carry a national elec-
.ion,in this country and, the capitalists,
refusing to yield, should turn,the regular army at them', the Socialists would
use all the violence they could muster.
While-they, are in a minority they are
obeying the laws that the capitalists
make, but if the Socialists should ever
become a majoritjj, they will insist,
even with bullets, that the capitalists
obey" the laws that the Socialists
each.-other,' and when they, quit the
union they.find that, non-union'men
also.steal from each other. So they
despair of< the working class ever emancipating itself. ' The scientific Socialist knpws that petty stealing among
the" workers, is due to the fact that this
social system is founded upon stealing. The capitalist class steals from
the working class everything that'they,
produce. ■ But the capitalist! class also
steals from each other in dividing the
spoils, and-.in that sense they are enemies to each other. But as a class
they have a common interest, namely,
to continue to steal from the-working'
class. ■ According to their own figures
thoy return-to the working class in the
shape of wages about one-fifth of what
they steal. So any stealing tlie workers do among themselves must at best
be very ipetty as compared with the
amount that the capitalist class steals
from the working class. In so far ns
the working class do petty stealing
from each other tliey are in that sense
enemies. -But they too have a class
interest in common,' namely to overthrow the system,that is based on
stealing., The scientific Socialist is
amused at tho petty stealing of the
workers from each other, and the
larger stealing the capitalist class
from each other, and does not dispair,
for the only stealing worthy of serious consideration j.s the force that is
digging the grave, for the rule of capital with its wage slavery—producing
for .profit, which is but a polite name
for,stealing. .      . . "   '
, The cure for thatt horrible, disease
called "Desiiair" is a knowledge of
scientific Socialism,—C. SI. O'Brien.

FREE Trade or Protection1 are of no material
benefit to the working class.    This is a bald
statement to make, but let us apply a little common
" sense logic to the question nnd see exactly where
it loads us.   . .       .
. Great Britain is a Free Trade country. . We
do not think that anyone will refute tliis statement.
. Poverty stalks broadcast throughout the length
and breadth of tlie United Kingdom. The Protectionist or Tariff Reformer points to this irrefutable fact as proof positive Dial it is tbe result of
Free Trade. We must not examine too closely or
we shall discover that poverty has a deeper root
and it is.NOT caused either by Free Trade or .Protection.
Tf the volume of business were-to-decrease, the
Tariff Reformer would exult to think that he had
his argument strengthened, but the statistics demonstrate otherwise, as Britain's trade returns most
conclusively prove. On this score the Tariff Reformer is bested. lie may call attention to the importations from Belgium, Hungary, Holland or some
other • country of manufactured articles that if
made in Great Britain would'have given employment to British workmen - and although this be
quite correct another point in his argument is conveniently overlooked, but his Free Trade opponent does not, as lie calls attention to the social conditions of the workers in the countries referred to
and makes comment regarding the way they live
and are governed "so that'again we see that'so far
as the working class is concerned whether they live
in England, Hungary, or 'Belgium there is not a
.marked- difference of conditions.    " " ■
At the present time an election is pending, in the
■> United States and the press is actively engaged
vrith the tactics that have heretofore had telling
effect. ' The Republicans ariTshouting themselves
.hoarse about the influx of goods.from'pauper lab-
orized Europe but the story,has been worn almost
.threadbare by constant use niid does not fall upon
such fruitful'soil as heretoWe. e The "great voting
mass have begun to take the practical lessons
taught to heart. The experiences gone through
m the Republican state of Massachusetts with the
Lawrence mill-workers, the action- of the governmental authorities in Alabama with • the lumber
workers and the coal miner;., although Democratic,
are more impressive than all the windjanni-ing of
' the spellbinder on. tho rostrum or the penny-a-liner
in the newspapers.   ,        '■' ■'' ' = /'*   ,
-   If Free Trade were the cause of the evils that
, the workors suffer from then Hie Protection policy
countries would not have Ilie difficulties to contend
against. Free Trade and,Protection to the pro-
dueing class nre as inucli benefit as Ihe smell'of a
savory porterhouse in n roslnnrant is to n hungry
man who hasn't got the price of n bowl of soup.
As tantalizcrs they serve tlie politician's purpose
of mnking the voter think lio is going to'got tho
porterhouse steak but so oflen has ho discovered
that it is a delusion and a si.nro that lie is in a receptive state to'listoi) to tlio explanation of the Socialist when he points out tlmt Free Trade, Tariff
Reform or Protection are beneficial to factions of
11m Capitalist class but that,so far as the workor
is nITwted no mnttor whether he be in Free Trade
Britain or Trol od oil Tariff U. S. thnt ho gets tho
miii'l.et price as a gonoral avorago that is paid for
Ihe only article he has to sell nnd that is his physi*
cnl and,mental ciiorgy,

Instead of worrying so; much as, to .whether
there are more social ills under Free Trade or. Pro-
tection why not go deeper and endeavor ,tp, find
out why they exist at all,;     -' ,--
,i Today throughout the. world there "are millions in need of- bread;- not because enough wheat,--
barley, etc/have not been produced. , Then why
'is it?' ■"' 7<i>     - ■   ,   '   '■    ' -■

Today there are. millions iii rags, tatters and
shoddy clothing when there is no dearth of wool,
cotton, linen or other clothing'material. Then why
isit? "   y   • - • '
Let us look at some of the argumets advanced
by others that those who attribute it to Free Trade
or Protection'as we know that'poverty and misery
are rampant in countries where both these are in
practice., Therefore we can put.them aside as argumentative factors of real worth.
"Because men-drink too nm'eh," says your
pettyreformer. ' If drinking in .itself and solely
caused the evils, how is it that there-are many who
do overindulge that are neither poverty stricken
nor in constant misery. Oli! replies our would-be-
changer of •, conditions by fighting the,, effects,
'' They can afford it..'''. Then it follows tliat°drink-
ing alone is not the explanation.' If intemperance
were the .CAUSE, .those countries that'are most abstemious would (fo follow- out' the argument to its
logical conclusion) be the freest from degradation
and we naturally would turn our gaze to India and
China. Do'we,substantiate the statements of the
anti- drinking arguments upon an examination of
affairs in those countries ■ Not at;'all.' ' We.do
find that famines have: occurred in which millions
have died)'not because of lack of foodstuff in other
parts of the world and adequate means to transport
it to the people. Therefore DRINK alone is not
the' cause. -.■,"■■
"Man' natural depravity," says another apol-
ogist for the existing disorders. If men were na't-
urally depraved why. is it that there are more
crimes, in the winter time than in the summer?
Let' us answer the question for the reason that the
will to live is NATURAL in every sane, individual;
during the" summer months it is easier to get ac-'
cess to the products of nature and there is more em-,
ployment, but later on unemployment ensues, men
grow hungry and rather ,than starve, break the
laws framed for the protection of private property',
hence the prison'calendars'become more lengthy-^
L, * In short whether Free Trade'or Protection or
modified forms of either are in vogue'the working
class, shown by the maiiy- experiences ' of", past
years, have reached the conclusion that neither" of
these theories solve the problems .of life and .turn
their'attention to a study .of that which so vitally
affects their material interests; in other words study the philosophy of Socialism, AND DO THEIR
♦"p HE upholders of-.the. capitalist system and
* tlieir henchmen when, it is suggested that the
laws'are not made for till classesand sections of the
.community',.or that it is not;'enforced against cer-
tain privileged classes, veli'emently deny this. Yet
cases, are not 'wanting "to prove this conclusively.
The most brutal'and revolting case that has come to
notice for many a day has, just come to pnss on the
international boundary line; of Canada tnnd the
United States. No more glaring illustration could
be found of the evil that may be wrought by a system that distinguishes between rich and. poor than
the ense in question. Tho facts aro as follows:
a .A miner employed in the Lucky .Jim mine,had
struck his pick into a missed .hole and tho discharge
of dynnmile had blown hundreds of fragments of
rook into his face and arms. Tho Nolson physician to.whom he was .taken arranged for him to
meet specialists in spokano,' as aid to bo. effective,
would have to bo prompt. Hurried on his way,ho
was stopped by the immigration authorities at Marcus on the boundary and refused entry.", His companion explained the eirmimstnneps and produced
abnndnnt,money to prove Hint tlm injured man
could pny nil his expenses, and was in no danger of
becoming n public burden, and a prominent lawyer
of Spoluine, who wns on the (rain, offered his best

articles on
ten'by Comrade ,McTavish.' were very
much-appreciated by those who read
thenv on ithe lower deck, and it has,
I am glad to say, brought the Leader
Into great favor., .    «
I'am writing this at Spithead, where
we'have just assembled for the review
; by the M. P.'s. There is no. doubt
that .the ships asseinoied here are the
finest .and the most scientific means,
of destroying our fellow-man that the
human brain can conceive. No ..doubt
many will gaze on them with a feeling
of pride (I am glad that we,,as Socialists, have not that feeling., but
tho people who see them will not see
tho inner workings, ,the mass of corruption, and the methods that are diabolical in the extreme.
Today the navy is in< a state of silent mutiny. Discontent is on. every
hand. We are ground down and oppressed by regulations that are not fit
for dogs. For a long time we have
clamored for better pay and conditions
and for more freedom; time after time
we have received promises. But today we are not in a state to be played
with. The great teachings of Socialism have made us, realize our conditions; it has shown us that past'tradition will not keep us nor our wives
and children;" neither will loyalty fill
our stomach or purses. '. k
All the Dreadnoughts are of no avail
without men to man them who are contented, and .have an interest in tlieir
work. Today co-operation is an un-
unknowri thing in service; there is no
unity .between.officers and men; they
know nothing of how we exist, neither
do they care. _ We "are silent because
we are forbidden to speak or act, but
soon, if.our conditions are not better-
ed,"and we, are not treated as men,'we
shall burst through regulations. We
have sacrificed home, 'comfort, and
friends for the.'service of the country,
and we expect in'return to be treated
as human beings, with a right to live
decently. •    .       ,.       ''.•'" .,-,
„I would like to mention tha.t, while
wo are anchored at Spithead, where
the leave tliat is given i sonly 20 per
cent a night, and as we are only here
for four days, that means that some of
us will not get ashore.' -The officers'
leave is not curtailed in the least. The
excuse Is that the boat accommodation of Portsmouth Dockyard js not
enough to take more than thai number
from Spithead to _ Portsmouth. The
ship I am in and several more have
hired" private steamboats to take. us.
ashore. ' We have .paid, a certain sum
between oyrselves for the"' hire, think-'
ing that a least, 50 per cent .would get
leave each night, and after1 hiring the
boat we have been told'tliat we are
only tb have the same 20^ per ;c'ent.
During Coronation if was'.practically;
thc same, "with the same e3ccu.se;: yet
on Review day these dooltyard boats
could' bring officers' friends and, guests
outHo .the fleet^and stop oiit till after
the illuminations? till 12 'o'clock "at
night, lo-bring them ashore, .burning
the nation's" coal to do so. Yet we
who man the.fleet could not get leave.
Can ono wonder at the discontent?
If the nation could only know,.tlie
stato of affairs' .and the perilous condition the service is in! The-life we
lead breaks any man who has spirit.
He is treated as a dog, and it teaches
him to live as such. ' All around you
can hear men say. "Hurry my time to
leave this life bf slavery." Imagine
what things'are when at the close of
a day1 you hear the best and fittest
men of the nation say, "the day has
driven our souls further into hell than
ever it was before. Let us get ashore
and drown our sorrows in beer."
I can tell you_.lt is a'hellish life. I
would aslc the readers of this paper,
should you ever" see a bluejacket the
worse for drink'don't condemn ,him.
It is not'his fault. Think of tlie' lite
he has to live in'the service.' The
fault and tne judgment will lie at the
foot of the powers thaf be—those/who
could alter bur conditions and will
not. Hundreds of our best men have
been physically and morally ruined
for life through them. No doubt you
have read in, articles' the number of
venereal diseases in the service.
These could be stopped if • we had a,
living wage to marry. ' N
I ask our comrades to fight for us.
to help us establish good conditions

We have many comrades on the lower deck. The. grand movement is
gaining a foothold, and I am, glad and
thankful that the comrades ashore are
taking our' cause up. I am proud that
I belong to the I. L. P.—a movement
that has thc spirit.and .teaching of
Christ for the uplifting of our fellow-
man, and one of tlie proudest moments
of my life was'a little while ago. when

Tho American Bar Association at Its
Mllwnukoo meeting recommended the
enactment of a uniform law Intended
for adoption by all tho states to prohibit tho employment of chlldron un-
llor certain agee. The proposed.law
provides that no child loss than fourteen years of nge shall bo permlted
tb work In or about, amonf? other
places, "any boarding house, barber
shop, laundry, garage, placo of amusement or club," The roport approved
really embodies three new laws: A
uniform marriage law; a child labor
net, nnd legislation by states adopting
as tholr standards tho standards laid
down by tho federal puro food statutes. Tho uniform marriage law roc-'
ommonded loaves to ench state tho
qualifications of pnrtlos to a marriage
requires two witnesses; provides that
application for license .must be made
flvo dnys prior to tho ceremony, nnd
abolishes the old common law mnr-
The child labor law Is practically"a
compoHlto of existing stnto laws. It
prohibits employment of child mi undor fcmi'leon years of ago hi mills, fao
tiirlPH, workshops, mercantile or mechanical establishments, tenement

child undor fourteen In nny business

We are iiving^under a regime which,
by common consent/has come to be
called "* capitalism. ' This means tlie
private ownership and m'ore. or.less autocratic .'control of sociali necessities
such las the means of transportation
and communication, the factories, the
mines and the land.' ;
' Capitalism also means the-competitive wage system and out of this wages
system grow all the, burdens and disappointments which are at the bottom
of world-wide" discontent.   A moment's
reflection should be sufficient to show-
the. impossibility of .material Improvement in the status of the working class
as long as this wages system endures.
It means that every ;person who^vorks
for wages is, .so to speak, a merchant
selling.the commodity of labor-power.
In certain-skilled trades the workers
are able, by combination to .command
some advantages, in the .way of comparatively liigh wages—or -price—for
commodity of- labor power which they
sell/^ For'the great bulk'of the work-
i~ng"class,.however, effe^tive~_)ermanent"
combination has been impossible." The
result has been that the ..workers' have _
competed with one another in the mar-
ket to sell their labor power—competed for the chance' to work., •     •  ,,:-'
' It is characteristic of capitalism that
there are' many more workers than
there  are , opportunities ■ for  work-
there'are not enough   "jobs'.1.-.to   go
around—and   consequently  we" have
constantly ' an  over-Bupply of  labor.
Over-supply means reduction in price
and this ln turn means constantly low
wages. With' this competition for -Jobs
going on always It is obvious that the
great bulk of the' population will "receive ln wages—tho price   of   labor
power—only enough to provide a bare
Under capitalism lt does not matter

that society > today • rests --uppn. the
same basis that -;it did- a hundred
years ago, and ..who-try to paint .'in
rosy colors" the picture of the small
producer. -.Indeed,, a. .revolution has'
taken place in the-make-up'of society,
the same as itJ has-in the system of
production.- - The capitalist form of'
production'has overthrown all" others
and become \he dominant one.in,the
field of industry." Similarly 'wage labor is today the dominant form of la-'
bor. A- hundred .years, ago the" farming peasantry took the first" place;
later, the small city industrialists;"'today- it- is the wage earners, or" proletariat. , -'•
In all civilized,countries the •proletarians are today tlie largest class;
it, is, their condition and modes of,
thought that control those of all the
other subdivisions of labor. This'
state of things implies a complete revolution in the condition and thought
of the bulk of 'the population. The
conditions - of the" proletariat differ
radically from those of all others
fft-mer categories of labor. The small
farmer, the artisan, the- small producers- generally; were the owner, "f
the product of their ow__ labor by reason of their ownership of the means of
production; contrariwise, the product
of the labor of-the proletarian does not
belong to him. it belongs to the capitalist,, to the purchaser of his labor
power, to'the requisite instruments''of
production. -True enough, the'proletarian is paid therefor.by'the capitalists, but the value of his .wages is far
below that of his product.
- When industry' (and let it'be here
said, once for, all, that, at the present
stage' of economic'development, agriculture is as'muclian industry as any
other branch of production) the capitai
ist, purchases .the'"only commodity,
which the proletarian can offer for sale
—to wit, his labor power—he does so
only for the purpose of utilizing it in a
profitable way..- The, more the workingman produces, the larger the value
of his totalproduct. If the capitalist
were to work'liis'employes only long
enough .to produce the"' worth of the
wages he'pays ihem, he would clear no
profits.. -.But however willing the capitalist is to pass'as the "benefactor, of
suffering humanity," his capital cries
for, "profits,"" and finds in him'a-willing' listener. The longer the time is
xtended during which the workmen labor .in 'the .service of the capitalists
over'and above the time needed to cover <their wages, the larger is the%.value,
of their product tlie larger is the surplus over-and above the capitalist outlay in- wages' and the larger the quan-,,
tity of'exploitation to which these
workmen are.subjected. This exploitation or'fleecing of labor finds a,-limit;
working people, and, in the .resistance"
which-they, may be able;.to offer to
their exploiters. '    -  , •  'J !

By the foreigners, I mean the men
with'whom'real conversation is'impossible because they speak a language
alien from our own.- The temperament pf these men' varies. You cannot expect:to deal with the Southern
Italian as you would with a Philander;
the one'is as excitable and voluable as
the other is incapable of undue emo-
tion'7       - ■ , y
Some foremen would exclude men of
certain nationalities .from their" mines.
I have never felt so" disposed. : A little patience and''study make it possible .to understand and .succeed in
handling them all. ' Tliere are good
and bad to be, found from all countries
and to draw a racial line is .clearly ridiculous. - •   ',
It is not' well tondecide arbitarlly as
to what is the best method of dealing
with men In general; each case must
be treated individually. . -One thing
which wo should not forget is that civility becomes evory man, nnd to havo
certificate as a mine foreman does
not authorize any man to be a brow-
beatei'.and bulldozer,
It must be humiliating to a man who
has just come to this country and, who
has spent soveral days or weeks in
learning to ask for a job, if when he
goes to the mine boss, he gets nervous
and says: "Jlr. Job, give me a'Boss."
This .not Infrcouelly happens, and the
boss breaks out in a loud guffaw. „
-■The man'does' not realize he has
m.ule a mistake and thinks he j* be-
ins? made a butt lor ridicule. .Witur-
ally in his.loneliness in a strange land
lie does not,feel drawn to the boss
who is guilty'of such senseless-hilarity. '' If the boss is humane, he will not
take any notice, of the blunder, but
will give the man a civil answer.
When making your rounds among'
the miners, - do; not find fault with
everything and everybody. " You may
scare the foreign workman Into., a-
grudging compliance so that he may
do what you require. At the same
time he "does it, not because he sees''
that it is necessary. He only thinks
you want to show your'authority by
making trouble.
There is a better way. ' If, for, instance,' the,-man has not set his props
or if they are wrongly placed, or if
1'ou see any danger,- stop the workman
at once and" show him what danger
he is in if he continues to work under
the hanging rock.--"Caution him not
to-be so careless'again; or he will be
disciplined. " Always be careful in his
working p)ace, and help him in any
cold; stand inJ among a mass of inen
on a street car hack platform, where
every grouch push against her tired
body, her "swollen, "feet caused her
anguish. .  .
- In her' bare little dollar-ana-a-half-
week bedroom, without, the possibility
of food or warmth, and worst of*-all,
with" no one to welcome 'her or speak
to hor, she would set the alarm clock
for G.30 the uext morning; drag .off
her clothing "with fingers "almost too
tired to obey her will; turning out the,
gas, grope' her way across the room
to the small iron bed and'.drawing the
covers over her, shed those tears of
hopelessness and fear, of weariness
and loneliness, which1'only tlie helpless and the .weak can shed.      .    :
More than this, she would know
what it1 meant when she has just managed to hold out to the closing hours
of factory, -through what seemed' to
her an endless day of "speeding up "
noise aud rentless work—to have the
word sent down from the office that
a "big order has come, in and all the
girls are to 'stay and' work overtime
She should learn to know tha'i thero
are two codes of' moials which men
hold. One set of moials for thc protected girl who has social position and
wealth. ■ Another code for the working girl who bas no protection,, a"nd
who can therefore be exploited.
When women realize that tne most
helpless thing, in'all this earth is* the
woman who must labor to earn hor
bread, and who stands alone, without
home, or money, or organization, with
nothing to see but her separate aiid
unprotected power to- work; when
women realize the tragedy, the hopelessness of this struggle, then the
words "working women must organize
to survive" will have' a
strong," for their hearts will    teacli-
them. 7

Overheard in a Street-Car.
There's a lesson right there!
Little blemishes of complexion, small sores, eruptions;
spots, are not only unpleasant
to the person afflicted, but are
the first thing noticed by other
A little Zam-Buk applied at
, night to spots, eruptions, sores
of any kind will do wonders.
Zam-Buk is not a greasy
preparation which will go rancid on your dressing table.
It is made from healing, herbal
extracts and essences. Always
pure, fresh and ready for use.
Doesn't lose its power. , Keeps
indefinitely. Healing, soothing
and antiseptic all the time.
Try it!
