Amidst Wildest Enthusiasm
Charlie Unanimous Choice
Socialist Convention
• The most enthusiastic convention
ever held in tho Rocky Mountain division of Alberta took place on Sunday afternoon last iji Coleman, when
Socialists, delegates from that town,
Blairmore, Frank, Hlllcrest, Bellevue,
Maple Leaf,' Passburg, Burmis, Bank-
head, Canmore, etc., were present.
Enthusiasm reigned supremo ancl optimistic spechea of eulogy wore made
all in favor of the popular Socialist,
present member, C. M. O'Brien, which
was the only name in nomination.
After "Charlie" had been enthusiastlc-
ly acclaimed as the standard bearer
° Committees were formed and campaign   managements   fully   discussed.
. The various delegates made reports
as to the standing of the party in their
respective camps from which it would
seem a certainty that Charlie will poll
nearly double the number of votes lie
did last year. The fact that W. B,
Powell was in the field as a "Labor"-
Llberal did not seem to trouble the
convention much, the concensus of
opinion being that the Liberal red-
herring across the poll can easily be
discerned, even with the naked eye.
i. As for the convention candidate, well,
. that again ls considered a huge joke.
Alf. Budden is contesting the Little
Bow riding on behalf of tho Socialist
party, in the Alberta provincial elections, '''
There's only one in the field and that
is Charlie. The throat that a straight
Liberal would be nominated did not
worry the delegates, the slogan evidently being "Let 'om all come." Still
the determination to be up and .doing
was felt on all sides, just to show tho
other centres pf Alberta the strength
of the party and the popularity of the
candidate. It is evidently anticipated
that after this election the Rocky
Mountain seat will be conceded to the
Socialists for all time, and never again
will an attempt be made to accomplish the impossible by trying to shift
the local Rock of Gibraltar. W. Graham of Coleman acted as secretary,
and L. E. Drake of Bellevue was appointed agent, to whom all campaign
funds should be sent.
Charlie is how campaigning in the
northern part of his constituency and
from reports to hand is being received
with tremendous enthusiasm where-
over he appears. The week before
the election he will bo in the Pass.
A meeting on the platform of O'Brien
and Powell is eagerly looked forward
to when a number from Fernie, Michel
and Hosmer will ,no doubt be pleased
to be present. '

The members of the Western Federation of Miners, who have been striking against the Britannia Mining &
Smelting company, a Guggenheim
concern of Britannia, B.C., for nearly
two months, are putting up a stubborn
fight under rather adverse circumstances. The men involved " in this
contest are struggling to maintain
their organization. For some time
before the strike was inaugurated sentiment it: favor of organization prevailed among llie men. Tha company
objected to an organization and used
all tht-ir influence to discourage and
prevent its establishment, and did
temporarily prevent it from gaining
working proportions. However,, the
sentiment in favor of organization
still smouldered among the mun and
the question of whether the company
should or should nol allow them to
organize was finally submitted lo arbitration, in accordance with tiie terms
of the Industrial Disputes Act, tho arbitrators deciding in favor of the men.
and, notwithstanding the company had
agreed to arbitrate tlio issue, tliey refused to accept tlie decision with good
grace. Nevertheless, thc men acting on the strength of the arbitrators'
decision, formed au organization
which the company immediately starred in to destroy, and were (loin*.; tneir
work of- deszruction so effectively
that the men were finally forced into
a strike in defense of their Unio'a.
These men are at a decided disad-
'■.'.ntage because they have been forco.l
to move far from the field of action.
This camp.is located thirty miles up
the coast from Vancouver City, and
the only feasible means of entrance
is by boat from the above mentioned
place. Otherwise, a detour of about
four hundred miles, over rough, snow-
covered and untraveled mountains is
necessary to gain entrance thereto.
The company owns the wharves at
which the boats must land, as well
as all the habitable land for miles
around the mines. When the men
struck they were compelled to vacate
company property which left them
with no place of refuge short of Vancouver City, and it is at this point
where the men are clustered, and from
whence they are now directing their
-.veights of coal sold to thc Amen-tat;
government for use by army transports, and on the duty due on coal
cciring into, ths tJnlto-1 States. This
is the same coterie who operate the
mines at Nanaimo and who have
reaped immense profits through the
robbery of their employees, the consuming public, and now the United
States government. Evidently no one
escapes their rapacity. "Get Rich
Quick Wallingford" sertainly had nothing on tliis bunch.

The Indians in the Teslin Lake district of Northern British Columbia,
are holding war councils and threatening to go on the war path, because
they claini they have been robbed of
their lands through tlie land allotment
ptilicy of the provincial government.
Tlx Indians call Sir Richard McBride
the "White Devil,", and are openly
making threats of massacre. While
somo innocent prospectors will probably mett with devastation or massacre because of the outbreak, if one occurs, Sir Richard will escape injury
inasmuch as he ls safely ensconced
in Victoria and separated from 'the
scene of dlstuibanco by twelve days'
travel over a vlld .and uncharted
stretch of country.
Sir Richard Is tho same dignitary
who recruited 250 roughs and loafers,
clothed them with police power and
rushed them Into Cumberland to establish martial law and torrorlzo the
striking miners at a ilmo when thnt
community was ns peaceful as a hone-

Section GO of the B. C. mining laws
roads as follows:
"No certificate of competency shall j
be granted to any coal miner who docs j
not satisfy the majority of the Board
of Examiners that he is sufficiently
conversant with tho English language,
and with the provisions of the Acts
relating to coal inining and rules and
regulations made thereunder, to render his employment as such safe, and
also that he has been employed in a
coal mine for at least twelve months
previous to the date of his application
for such certificate, and has sufficient
knowledge of methods of coal mining
to render him competent to perform
the duties appertaining to liis employment." "
In the face of this section of the
law the Board of Examiners mot in
Cumberland a short time ago and in
absolute contravention of the law
granted certificates of competency to
ninety illiterate Chinamen, who, because of their inexperience and inability to read or speak English, were
wholly incapable of meeting the terms
of the law and are unable to cope with
the dangers encountered in mining.
But what does a little perversion of
the law amount to when strike breakers are needed, and what if the inexperience of these unfortunate wretches
does lead them into unknown dangers
ancl death? Though the death toll be
great the ghastly greed of the dominating forces must be appeased, and
though many of these unfortunate will
perish some will survive and become
part of the machinery necessary to
crush the striking miners who are
striving to free themselves of fiendish
greed"-by upsetting the despotism of
curious feature of "conditions here is
that although they have seen the labor
in the fishing industries monopolized
by Japanese, and can see the white
workers in the lumber industry gradually being displaced by Hindoo workers, and the white men engaged in
the mining industry slowly supplanted
by Chlneso and Japanese, tho priggish and patriotic "Canuck" still continues to rave' about tho Invasion of a
foreign labor Union, and just will persist, in shouting tlieir hackneyed phrase
"Canada for the Canadians."
Owing to the scarcity of coal, caused
by tho trouble between the miners
and mine owners on Vancouver Island,
coal from New Zealand, Australia and
Japan Is now coming into tho markets of the Pacific northwest. This
fact should furnish food for thought
for the exponenth of a general strike
of minors.

If any one had tilked llko that to
the negro slaves who were- forcibly
taken from their homes in Africa and
sold to the planters in the southern
states, the captives would have laughed at the advice. A man who gives
you such advice when you are held a
prisonerto some boss in the present
industrial treadmills' is trying to fool
you for the benefit of those who get
all the good out of conditions as they
are. And if you followed'such advice
you could not- lift a hand to better
your conditions. You would not only
have to be satisfied with being an employer's working mule, buf would actually have to he so loyal as to help
him keep you imprisoned in his service.
Industrial Slavery
The'great majority of us are actually in prison today, in the United
States as well as in every other couutry on the globe. We are born prisoners. We are born', without our
consent, into industrial conditions
which compel us from the first day
that >vo try to make our own living,
to become some employer's servants,
We have no other choice but to,sell
ourselves for wages to some employer
or to starve. ■ Of course, we might
beg or steal, but most of us don't like
to do that because there is a law that
says: "Thou shalt not beg, thou shalt
not steal; thou shalt make an honest
living in somebody's employ." If we
break tliis law we arc taken from the
industrial treadmill- and thrown into
jail, where wo have to work behind
stone walls, ami iron bars, and aro
driven even worse than we are as so-
called free wage earners in somebody's private employ.
No one likes to be dependent upon
any other human being ror.a chance
to live. If we are dependent, most of
us, we are so only under compulsion,
lashed by the whip of necessity. Every
man, every woman, would rather make
a living working for themselves than
working for some stranger. A true
man or a true woman, living from necessity in disagreeable conditions, will
try their best to get out into freedom
and independence. Lincoln said that
no man was good enough or wise
enough to rule another man without
his consent. He was thinking of political rule. But the same applies with
equal force to industrial freedom. No
man is good enough or wise enough
to be the industrial ruler of any other
man, and no self-respecting human
being will consent to be ruled by any
employer. We work for employers
because necessity compels us, but we
have never given our consent to such
conditions, at least not our conscious
consent. Most of us don't give 'much
thought to the matter. We are born
believe that there is no way out of
them, and worry along, dissatisfied,
but dazzled. If we knew that thero
was a way to change things we would
change them very' quickly, .wouldn't
The Basis of Class Rule
Those who reap all the benefits of
conditions as they are don't want them
changed. They want the underdogs
to bo satisfied, They don't want lis
to think about changing conditions.
For that reason they Inspire such slavish advice as ths above.
And do you know that so long ns

Thia warfare Is tho direct result of
a concealed state of war Inside of w-
try nation. This eoneenled war Is
called the class war. In thia clnis
war, which never slops, the workira
struggle all the time with the employers for better living condition,' but the
employing class generally pretend that
no such class war exists. They notice
it only when when it threatens their
profit, and then they blame it ou the
workers. Tbe master class call's this
class war a lot of nice names, such as
"our industrial prosperity," or "our
glorious opportunities," or "the best
system tn the world," or "harmony
between capital and labor." These
nice names for an ugly fact have, been
impressed upon our minds so much
that most workers don't realize the
existence of the class war, even while
they are engaged in it. Even when it
breaks forth into fierce skirmishes,
called strikes, most workers put all
the power of industry and government
into the hands of tlieir enemies. Of
course, the employers use these powers to beat the workers.
The Class  Struggle.
This class war makes nil peace between workers and capitalists impos
slide. So long as capital means tiie
gobbling up of the laborer's product
by- the owners of thc machinery of
life and a miserable hand-to-mouth
existence for the laborer, there can be
no harmony between capital and labor, So long as labor is a victim, just
so long will harmony be impossible in
any nation, just so long will the interests of working people and capitalists be diametrically opposed,        *    .
The working people want as large a
share as possible of their product. In
fact, they want all of it. That would
leave nothing for tho capitalists. Tho
capitalist wants as much as possible.
In order to raise his profits he must
keep wages down. The smaller wages
lie pays, the more profit he can make.
Here is the impassable and unbridgeable chasm between the captains of
industry and tlie working people. So
long as this class division exists, so
long as the machinery of life is in private hands',' there will be war, silent
or open, between the two opposing
classes, whose interests can never be
harmonized within the present order.
This is the class war, and this class
class war is to blame for all other war.
This class war cannot exist when the
machinery of life is taken out of the
hands of private owners and used for
all the people without distinction of
How the Class War is Fought
This class war is fought In many
ways, but it never lets up. You fight
it when you haggle with your employer about the scale of wages. You
fight it when you go on strike. You
fight it, without knowing it, when you

trades disputes through the courts.
You are in it from the cradle to the
grave. But you very seldom take the
same side in it. Generally you take
the wrong side. Instead of fighting
for yourself, for your family, for your
class, you fight against ■ yourself,
against your family, against your class
by fighting for the interests of the
employing class.
Every time you add to the power of
the employing class you forge another
link in the chain that binds you and
tho working class Into the service of
the employers.
Why don't you work to get tho tn
dustrlnl and political power Into your
own hands and Into thoso of your
class, '■ '
Tills class war Is a struggle for power botweon capitalists and working
pooplo. It Is a war to a finish. You
need all tho powor that you can get.
And you want to got nil the powor
that you can. Don't weaken your own
position by voluntarily giving power

the securing, by agreement, of an
eight-hour work day, effective in the
competitive field, April i, 1S9S, and
later established in all the well organized districts of our union. We have
reason to commemorate' this step toward a better day for our craftsmen,
and, moreover, ■ we have good reason
to carry on our fight for this principle until every mine in America operates on an eight-hour schedule. At
this time more than one-half of the
miners of America work.more than
eight hours per day. In the non-union
mining fields the usual work day is
ten hours
hour work day, not only In the mines,
but in all the industries of America,
has been waged for many years with
an ever Increasing degree of success.
Some of the greatest struggles of the
American labor movement have resulted from the desire of the workers to
secure this condition, and tt goes without saying' that, these struggles will
continue until the eight-hour work
day is.universally established.
The eight-hour work day Is one or
the chief demands of the international
labor movment, and is likewise the
concern of many of the world's legislative bodies, especially so in recent
years, since labor is'-learning the power and use of the ballot. If labor was
properly represented in tho American
congress, and the various slate legislatures, it would be an easy matter
to secure the enactment of an universal eight-hour law, applying to all the
Industrie sin the land. If the American workers fully realized the necessity for their control of the law-making
bodies of the land, the eight-hour day
could be realized without the loss of a
day's work, and without- the suffering-
incident to a prolonged strike.
AVe submit these few thoughts of
this anniversary of our eight-hour
worl: day with the hope of renewing
interest in the subject of' a . shorter
work day for all who toil, and, moreover, we advise that, wherever possible,- meetings should be held to appropriately commemorate .the occasion and to discuss the merits of this
all-important theme.
Fraternally yours,

HY should a workingman vote the Socialist ticket? There ia only
one answer to this Question and that is—to get Socialism. . -Why
should you want Socialism? Because Socialism will give you ownership of job. The Socialist .platform demands the collective ownership of the
mills, shops, mines, railroads, etc. In short, It means the collective ownership of production and the collective ownership and management of distribution.
Would not you, fellow workers, rather havo a public job than a private
one? «■
Would you not rather be a mail carrier than a grocery wagon driver?
Wouldn't you rather be a postoffice than a dry goods clerk?
Wouldn't you rather be a county or city clerk than a hardware clerk?
Wouldn't you rather be a rural mail carrier distributing the parcels post
than 'be a peddler?
Wouldn't you rather be a railway mail clerk than the express man?   ■
All of you say yes.   Why?
because when working for the public you are better paid and your hours
rae shorter than when working for a private employer.
IF we had Socialism we could all have public jobs if we wanted thorn. If
there were not enough jobs to go around, we would reduce the hours of those
working and thus make more jobs. Once we start in this direction the public will socn demand that all production nnd distribution be publicly owned.
We would all get good pay—for the money that is now given to the
Morgans, the Rockefellers, and the capitalist class as profits would then be
paid in wages. We woul get all the wages we are now getting, plus all the
profit wo arc now paying the capitalist class.
The people—all the people—would be the owner of the nation's capital
nnd resources, instead of a few of the people owning these things a? now. We
would not divide this capital, but would own it collectively.
.DO the Republican party and lir. Taft .promise you that they will make
the private property of the trusts the property of the nation, and thus give
all of the workers employed by the trusts a public job? They do not. They
tell you that they will break up the big corporations into little ones so that
there will be competition. What difference does it make to you whether you
have a big corporation for a master or a little one, so long as you still have
a master? Besides when the Standard Oil trust was broken up-by the supreme court and made to reorganize into twenty-six companies, Rockefeller
still controlled it all. Ue put up the price of oil, but did not raise your wages.
So it will be with all other busted trusts.
Do'the Democratic party and Woodrow Wilson off,er you the public ownership of your job? They do not. They, too,'promise to "bust the trusts."
■They say that they will give you lower prices for .what you have to buy by
reducing'the tariff. The wool trust is starving its employees now even
under protection in the, United States. Witness the Lawrence strike. Do
you imagine the woolen mills will pay more wages when they have to com-

do you think that any trust will increase the wages or its employees, under I

First—A minimum wage scale, but ho does not tell you whether the mini-1
mum wage is to be a dollar, or two, or what. '
Second—An eight-hour law on public works, but ho doesn't promise to j
increase the. public work by increasing the industries t,bat the public own, so ''
how will an eight-hour law on public works, when you have no public work, j
benefit you?
Third—Abolition of child labor.   Your children work now bocanso you
can't afford to supportthnm.   Does Roosevelt promise to employ you nt better ■
wages?   How can he, when ho doesn't, promise to Increase the publicly owned
jobs?   Mo has no power to make the capitalists hire you or pay you more

•nn III'] political campaign in Alberta between the
*■ workers and the capitalists lias started in real
earnest. The voters nre pow asked to consider who
shall represent them in the legislative house at Edmonton. The capitalists present for your consideration one of two whom they liave selected to represent thdr interests—W. 1>. Vowel!, or Campbell.
0. M. O'Drieii, whose work is for tho workers, asks
you whether he lias not, served vou truly ai'd faithfully in the legishilive house the past four years.
Tn the Rocky .Motinlaiu division we find no
"capitalist.-?, only {heir representatives—the mutineers, lawyers. lJieivlinni.s, _ii ;dor.s. and other pro-
lessional men. l'Yniii tlieir ranks the capitalists select one whom they think can bluff the workers
into voting for (lie maintenance of this delightful
system of exploitation. There are, however, members of the working class who have sold tlieir abilities for the benefit of the capitalist class, or are
being rewarded for "services rendered." From
the surplus value you turn over to the capitalists,
they are paid, and whom think you they arc likely
to serve? ls it not cxlraordinarily plain, and are
you going,to vote the capitalist ticket?    Surely not.
As Licbki'och! says:
"For our parly and for ou'1 party-tactics ther
is but one valid basis; tlie basis of the class
struggle, ont of which the Social Democratic party
hns sprung, out of which alone it can draw thc
necessary strength to give defiance to every storm
and to all of its enemies. . Thc founders of Ihe
party—Marx, Engcls, and Lassalle—impressed upon the workingmen the necessity of the class character of our movement so deeply that down lo recent times there were no considerable deviations or
getfin^offTfic track:     ..
Till the year 1893 there never was any talk in
public about the possibility or advisability of taking part in the Prussian legislative elections.   Tn
the beginning of Hie '80s, tlie cooperation of the
Social Democracy wilh Hie political Democrats was
ad vocal ed on the quiet by tlie Democrats of Frankfort for the purpose of gaining a Socialist and a
Democratic■ representative  for Frankfort  in  tho
legislature; but the proposition was declined, also
on the (piiet, without pelting noised abroad.    What
turned llie fieale wns this consideration, viz.: THAT

'T^IIERE are two methods whereby masterful,
•*■ ambitious men may hold- any population in
a '.slate of ordered sub.j.\tiviiy. The first and by
far the most honorable method is through an irre-
sistable and highly trained standing army, ready
to deploy anywhere witli mechanical precision at
a telepathic nod in order to lay down the Law at
the cannon's mouth and sweep away all dangerous
The second and cheaper method is. first of all
to itinoeulate those intended to be exploited with
some poisonous political soporific, superstition or
thcoria; something that operating insidiously, hy-
podermieally, may render them laborious, Jieek
and tractable. The latter plan has ever proved itself most effective because Aryan populations that
would fight to the last gasp against undisguised
military despotism may be induced to passively'
submit to any indignity or exploitation if their
brains are first carefully soaked in some "ABSTRACT LIB," "Might'is Right," or the "Sur-
vival of the Fittest;''1 page 3$. The first or "most
honorable method" was in vogue in Europe until
the latter pari of the 18th century. In France, the
highhanded conduct of the nobles brought on tbe
licvolulion with all its attendant, horrors, so interestingly told by Charles Dickens in "The Tale .of
Two Cities." The feudal aristocracy was dethroned and the bourgeoisie grabbed the reins of office.
Tiie peasantry, whose efforts had made this possible, had been deluded into the belief that thev
o  *
were to enjoy Freedom. They- had felt, rather
than realized, for many decades that there was a
slipped cog somewhere, this recognition by a portion of the French working class culminated so
tragically in 1871 when the Communists' blood
pointed the walls of Fere La Chaise-with "Butcher" Galifet in the role of executioner.
This "most honorable method" is also adopted
by Russia. Denunciations of the ultra-entphatic
type have been showered upon the powers that
rule the land of the Bear by those who prefer 'the
second and cheaper method.'
On every side we find the master class.are
alive to thc fact that there is a rebellious spirit
noticeable in the long slumbering giant, Labor; he
has fits and starts of an awakening. Therefore,
some soporific (sleeping powder) with a new label
has to be invented for the purpose of gilding over
"Abstract Lie." In England we haye Lloyd Geor-
crisin wilh its skilfully prepared soothing powders
of 'Old Age Pensions,' 'Insurance Act,' 'Unemployment Insurance,' labels for .the purpose of
pilling the workers into the belief that these are
for the benefit of their class. -They are not, on
the contrary, altho' they may be of a slight bene-

tliey possess is that cardinal virtue. Economy. It
is CHEAPER than the former loose, wasteful and
consequently more expensive methods ,of Poor
J rouses. "Workhouses, etc. Any individual who may
honestly believe that ideal and not practical purpose dictated these reforms should ask himself this
'tjuestion: If ihe Lloyd George crowd do these
things out of the goodness of their hearts why is
it that it is the present administration that is responsible for the altering of the Pliinsoll mark,
therebying endangering so many of the1 working
class—the toilers of the deep?

The most unfair portion of the published circular is,, however, the, statement that certain clauses in the New
Mines Act are "inimcal to the'interests of tbe miners," and have been
compromised in order to gain political advantage, and this in spite of the
fact that we worked strenuously and
against considerable opposition for
such amendments as was secured.

tho regulation and operation of cooperative societies is in thc hands of
Mr. Meighen, but on account of Uie
deadlock in the -House on the Navy
yet to ..introduce the measure.
At this time, because of the peculiar
situation developed as a result of the
Xavy measure before the house, it is
difficult to determine what measure,
if any, will pnss into law.
The one absorbing question before

The annual ball given by the Hos-'
:mer fire, brigade took place Friday
•evening, tho 28th,'and was an unqualified success, financially and otherwise.
Quite a number of visitors were pres-
from outside points.
Hosmer Local have definitely decided to commence building operations, providing we can beg, borrow
or steal the money.
" Ur. Pruett of pugilistic renown in
New Zealand gave an exhibition in
the Athletic hall on Saturday evening.
Quite a flutter of excitement was
'caused Sunday' night about 6.30 when
the big whistle blew for fire and smoke
was' seen issuing from the main haul-
ago engine house, which was soon a
mass of flames. The reels of the
company and the Hosmer fire brigade
were quickly on the scene and the
fire was got under control luckily before much damage was done to the
machinery. Any serious damage to
it would liave meant a lengthy tie-up
of the mine. Things are expected to
be in working ordor in the .course of a
few days.
The May day celebration this year
is to be held at Lethbridge, and a
roarin' time is promised. A special
train will be run from Fernie, and
Hosmer is expected to guarantee at
least 100 tickets. Fuller information
as to fares, etc., will be given in the
Ledger latOr.
"A party of our Hit-Floods, in coming from Fernie in a cutter collided
with another Hosmer rig going towards Fernie. Result—John Beckett

Tinsmiths and
a revolver, accide'ntly discharged the
contents into his hand. Mr. Griffin
is now a sadder but wiser man.
It was rumored around town that
Mike Bceks, an old Hosmerite, had
been killed up at Bankhead, but the
report was without foundation ap upon
inquiry it was learned that he had only been slightly Injured. Thing's certainly get talked up in Hosmer.
The coal company have donated
towardB the Hosmer fire brigade funds
for which they say, "Much thanks."
What is a non-union man? you say.
A natural tight-wad without principle.
The degree team of the Fernie K.
of P.s visited Hosmer, Thursday, and
put on degree work for their Hosmer

The board of trado are going to

from the coke-ovens utilized. "Watch
Hosmer grow."
When is a man not a man? Why!

R. P. Campbell of the City Temple,
Mr. Denny, C.P.R. townsite expert
and landscape beautifier was in Hosmer recently and was taken in tow
by a few of the leading lights of the
proposed board of trade. The result
of their labors will doubtless be seen
in the sliape of a veritable garden of
Eden without the right brand of weather.
We are pleased to report that practically all of Hosmer eligibles are on
the voters list. Now, let's have that
election, Dominion or provincial, and
we'll show you a thing or two.

The shlveree band was called to
Coyote street on Wednesday, the occasion being the marriage of Mr.
Thomas Wilson and Miss Annie Gas-

some "noisie" which was not abated
until Tommy came, through with the

Miss Emma Hugall of Vancouver is

sadly misses the street cars, etc. Why
did her two lady friends not accompany her on the tipple? Wore they

It auems a little, trivial thing to go up to the polls on election day ami
t-asL your little, insignificant vote for one of the old parties. But your little
insisiiificant vote massed with a lot of other thoughtless little insignificant
rotes cast in thc same way, is .just what makes it possible.for capitalism,
through one or the other of its parties, to stay in power and to KEEP YOU
—and you certainly know by this time that it is always hard times for you
and the rest who labor.
Every time you vote for a capitalist party or faction you betray the common people, the people whose toil, whether in mine, factory, office or store,
makes all the wealth that is so grandly enjoyed by the few.
The seasons in their changes bring no relief to the average citizen',' the
average family. It isn't only a case of ice and coal. Capitalism gets you ori'
ALL the necessaries of life, in season, out of season, monthly, weekly, daily,
hourly. It runs your whole life for you and permits you to go just so far and
only so far.   You simply live by permission.
American labor is astonishing!); productive. It heaps up the national
table as history never saw it heaped before. And American capitalism sits
down to the table with its bottomless appetite—and you and your kind do the
waiting. You ought to be sick of the struggle by this time. Yet when you
cast a capitalist ballot you give your consent for this unholy condition of
things to continue. How can you look your wife in Uie face when you return
from the polls? How can you look upon trusting childhood in your home
without a blush ol shame after what you have done?
If this appeal, this challenge "to your common sense and manhood, would
only set you thinking!    It it would only WAKE you up! „
When you go to the polls this month do not commit political suicide. And
do not be fooled by the old politicians' quarrel. When a new party starts up,
talking reforms, but made up of'.the same old.politicians, the same old familiar "mugs," you may well behave. No matter what a trap is baited with, it
is a trap. And-a trap is for tho interests of the fellows behind it. Certainly
vou must see your duty by this time.
It is hard to have to talk to-you this way, but you know you like to still
make yourself believe that you are part of the ruling class. You like the
plutes' pleasant smile (on election day only) when you vote as they want you
to vote.
If you and enough like you waken up this month and vote for the common
folks against all the capitalistic candidates, you will rescue the land from the
coal thieves and all the other thieves—you will make it possible for the government to work in YOUR interests. You ought to do it. You ought to do
it because NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!

Random Remarks
There is a great diversity of ideas
among those who call themselves Socialists, and llie reason is quite plain.
It is the vestigal remains of tho metaphysical or abstract stage of the development of human society, over-lapping
ami modifying the present scientific
or positive stage. To state it differently it is tho result of ideas liaseil upon the methods of production which
prevailed uder thc feudiil system of
society, persisting and effectng in varying degree, the ideas which follcnv
from our present; methods of obtaining
food, shelter and clothing, under wage-
slavery. Tlie incongruity of trying to
reconcile metaphysics and science in
this age is only apparent to those who
understand the materialistic basis for
all  human  activity  and  are  able   to
apply the same in their daily lives.
I have known a Socialist speaker to
jangle for hours with a self-styled Socialist, as to whether Phillip Snowden
was honest, or as to the merits of Robert Blatchford, all of wliich seems to
uie to be fullie and fatuous. If Marx,
or any one else in the years gone by,
did or snid anything that is of benefit
to the workers today, lot (hem use it,
and ail our predecessors have contributed In some measure to tho development of present society, but to set
up an arbitrary tribunal and judge
who contributed most, is neither scientific nor reasonable. The peasant who
toiled In Uio l'i.'Iris and produced the
food-stuffs that satisfied Marx's hunger, Ih entitled to as, much credit as
Marx, Marx could not havo worried
along very well without the mini who
tilled the soil, 1ml one cannot Imagine
the peasant's lot ur .being much different oven though Marx had never beeu
To deify Marx Is ,to deny that law
upon which hi- laid f.o much emphasis,
namely, economic determinism. Those
llii'ro laws, Uie eliiss wtniggle, surplus,
vnhio, mid Uu; basic one--economic
determinism—-aro becoming more and
more apparent lo tho workers of the.
world and would linvp been explained
by someone even though Marx iuul
MiijjoIh liml nut lived. The contra-
lilcllon bol-.vi'i-ii metaphysical moral

everyday life, are explained away by

own lives, on pain of physical punishment here and spiritual damnation
hereafter. The law of surplus value
is understood instinctively by every
slave, inasmuch as he knows that the
master would not hire him unless he
thought there was the possibility of
profit (which in this caso is surplus
value) in the slave's hide, lie knows
that much, and then, his slavish instincts intervene and he thinks it
right that he should risk his life in
mine and factory, while the master
has joy-rides and champagne orgies
with the demi-monde. The class
struggle also is understood by the
slave, he realizes-the difference tie-,
tween himself and the master, "so far
as the product of the slave's toil is
concerned, but here again his slavish
ethics come between him and the product, and ho contents himself with the
metaphysical anasthetic of hope in
the hereafter. It will he necessary
for the slave, to throw over as so much
junk tho moral teachings handed out
by servants in the pay of his masters,
and act in his own intorets. The masters allowed no scruples or laws to
siand in their way in grabbing the resources of America, and the slave,
once conscious of his class interests,
will allow no master class morals lo
stand in his way in taking that which
is necessary'to the very existence,of
his class. Thnt is where lllatchford

of greed. At that time she was a
quiet and as conventional a woman as
any housewife of Philadelphia. She
was childless and her heart was big.
Her husband died and hor home, her
kitchen, her pots and kettles and
needlos seemed futile to her. She determined to cast hor lot with the under dog. And she became a labor organizer.

why we're handling the Wagner Quick ?'o!ding Co-Cart.  It's roomy

Is light in weight and can be carried anywhere. It opens or closes automatically with one movement of the handle, and tha seat isso placed that,
it can't tip backward.   The large wheels make easy riding for the baby,
easy wheeling for the mother. A brake on roar wheel prevents accidents.
