Political Unity Is Victory
Colorado Strikers
Still Fighting
DBNVBR, Colo., Aug. 1 .'..--Governor
Elias iM. Amnions, \\(ho has won for
himself the title of chief lickspittle of
the coal operators, is out lu a new
role—this time writing letters to be
used as press matter for the Colorado
coal operators.
When the strike .was called, Ammons began at once to use the influences of his office for the operators. The State militia was sent into
the strike sone, at a cost to the tax-.
payers of $1,000,000 to protect coal
' barons' property at the expense of
.personal rights and constitutional
The slaughter of the innocents at
Ludlow was done by his eunmen-mi-
Now that the Federal troops are in
the field and he cannot use State
Rowers to aid the coal operators, Ammons is writing wilful and deliberate
lies in the form of letters to newspapers to Ibe used as "copy" for the
His first effort was spent in a talk
on "the other gunmen" in the coal
strike. He mentions the several notorious thugs who were killed when
the gunmen of industry attacked the
peaceful strikers, trying to (bring out
the point, of course, that the strikers
were "the other gunmen."
•But he says nothing of the twelve
•* < children slaughtered and cremated at
Ludlow by his gunmen-militia, nor of
the other twenty-two strikers who
have lost their lives at the hands of
the operators' gunmen, in their effort
dom in Colorado through an enforcement of the laws now on the statute
books.   .
The miners' stcnle committee met in
Denver this week to make a scale for
contracts to be signed for two years
beginning September 1. Ne definite
information has been given out, but it
is believed that there will "be few
chanceB in the present scale.
There hip now thirty-five Independent operators working under a contract  with the Unltod Mine Workers
and other mine owners are contemplating the recognition of the Union.
The greater efficiency of Union
labor is clearly brought out ip the
current report of the State Inspector
of Coal .Mines.
The report shows that mines working under an agreement with the
United r.Mine Workers are producing
almost twice their normnl tonnage
while the operators employing scaSi labor are only "getting out" about one-
third their normal output.
Aspirants for State and county offices will undergo a rigid examination
next week when the State Federation
of Labor me^ts at Pueblo.
For years the workers of Colorado
have been buncoed by the .pre-election
friends of labor. The present strike
of the coal miners, however, has
taught them a lesson severe enougn to
make them realize that they must
stand together at the coming eleciion
and go down the line for real friends
of organized labor or else suffer intermittent outrages such as lhat at
Tbe end and final shake-up of the
Colorado National Guard may come
thia week. It Is understood that Chase
has refused to pay those .men connected with the Ludlow massicie
who have been awaiting the veridct
of the military (?) courtmartia'. If
he. holds up their money, they have
threatened to,sue him and Stit-i. as
well as "to tell a few things they
know about the.milltla."
If they do tell even   a few   things
Island Workers
Vote to Resume Work
We are in receipt of a wire from Robert Foster,
President District. 28, U. M. W. of A., stating that
the strike on the Island has been officially called
oii today.
The telegram, which gives no particulars as to
terms, is as follows:
NANAIMO, B. 0., Aug. 20.—Late propositions
from Premier McBride accepted. Vancouver Island
strike will be officially declared off today. Result
of vote, 1,030 for proposition. 363 against.
It is just possible that the present war may have
influenced McBride to take action and compel the
operators to offer better terms than heretofore.
However, in the absence of details and until .conditions upon which work has been resumed are
made known we do not desire to express an opinion.. One thing, however, is certain, viz., that the
striking miners, backed by the U. M. W. of A., have
put up a splendid fight. The fight has meant imprisonment and death to more than one, and at the
last moment the International was compelled to
withdraw its support. Although this last meant
starvation to them, the men never flinched, but
fought right on, and even to the last, as the ballot
shows, there was still an element strongly against
compromise in any shape.
We hope to be in a position to supply our readers with further news next week.

Poor EllaB M. Ammons, sometimes
called the Governor of Colorado, continues'to be hissed, jerred and hooted

who prostitutes his office to the coal
operators, will go down In Colorado
annals as the most discredited Democrat in thc history of that party.

Workmen's Compensation
By Jas. H. McVety
The cost of compensation to injured
workmen in an Industry iucluded the
premium paid toy the employer to the
insurance commission; the layers' fees
for fighting claims and the payment
of the compensation itself where the
court decision is iu favor of the
Absorbed by Parasites
In the State of Washington, prior to
the enactment of the new legislation dn
1911, when all compensation was recovered by common law or employers'
liability methods, it is estimated that
the workers actually received less
than "0 per cent of the amount paid
out by the employers for,the various
purposes already mentioned, conclusively showing that 70 per cent of the
funds were absorbed by parasitic lawyers and insurance companies.
Under the new system, where the
State taxes the industries directly,
according to the cost of accidents in
the various classifications, administering the amount received through
a State Board of Commissioners, without the interference of insurance
companies, lawyers or courts, the
workers now receive 90 per cent of
the amount taxed for the industries.
Reason for Opposition
The CO per cent of difference between what the workman formerly received and what his present portion
amounts to .reveals the very excellent
reason for the vicious opposition of
the lawyers and Insurance companies
to the passage of the Washington as
well as all other legislation of a similar nature.
.For the purpose of comparison with'
the 'British Columbia Act, the salient
features of which have been already
covered, the more important points
of the Washington legislation follow:
Provisions Reviewed
..Compensation  Is  paid   for  injuries
causing disability  of   T,   per   cent or
injuries intentionally incurred.
The industries covered include all
extra hazardous employment, including mills, factories and workshops
where machinery is used; blast furnaces, mines, quarries and wharves,
engineering works; logging lumbering and shipbuilding; building trades,
(without, the B. C. restriction as to
height of buildings); telegraph, telephone, electric light or power plant
or lines; steambonts, tugs and ferries;
era! statute; State county and municipal undertakings Involving extra hazardous work ln which persons are employed for wages.
Burden of Payment
The entire burden of payment rests
on the employer.
Compensation for death Is paid at
the rate of $7.1 for burial of deceased
workmen without dependants. . To
widow or invalid widower, a monthly
■payment of $20; to each child under
1C years of age, %:, per month, the total not, however, to exceed J3."> per
In cases where "no parent survives,
a monthly payment to each child of
$10 ppr month, tlio total not to ex-
reed l».1.
To other dependants, if none of
those already mentioned survive, a
monthly payment to each equal to 50
per cent of the average amount previously contributed to the dependant,
the total not to exceed $20.
;To the .parent or parents of unmarried minors a monthly payment of
$20 until the time he would have become 21 years of age.
Payments to a widow or widower
continue until death or remarriage,
and to a child until reaching the age
oi; 16 years. If a widow remarries,
she receives a lump sum of $240.
" Disability Allowances
For permanent total disability unmarried workers (at the time of accident) are paid $20 per month; if
with a wife or invalid husband, ibut no
children under 16 years of age, $25
per month; if the husband is not an
invalid, $15 per month; If a widow or
widower with a child or children under
IG years of age, $5 per month for each
child, total not to .exceed $35 per
For total temporary disability, payments are the same as for permanent
disability, increased by 50 per cent for
first six months, but in no case to
exceed 60 -per, cent of monthly wages.
For temporary partial disability, the
payment as for total temporary disability continues in proportion to the
loss of earning power, provided this
shall not be In excess of 5 per cent,
In the cases of permanent partial
disability lump sum not "to exceed
$1,500; if the injured person is a
minor, the parents, receive am additional sum, equal to 10 per cent of
the ward to the Injured person.
■Monthly payments may. be converted into lump sum payments in
case of death or permanent total disability.
Review by Courts
All payments and adjustments are
made Iby the State Board of three
comm-issoiners, but are subject' to
review by the superior court and to
other higher courts in order of sequence.
Desirable as the Washington legislation may appear from the following,
much depends on the method of enforcement. Until last May, the workers were fortunate in having a representative on the Board of Commissioners, John H. Wallace, a coal
miner from District 10 of the United
.Mine Workers. Under his care the Interests of jinjured workorg were' falr-
ploye on the same form." A simple
change, designed to save stationery?
Not at all. A deep laid plot to prevent
■the worker making a true report of the
conditions prevailing in the plant in
which he was injured. The report
blanks were supplied to the employer.
The employe, after the employer had
filled up his portion, called the employe into the office where he was'required to make his statement of how
the accident occurred. It requires no
great stretch of imagination to see
that for fear of losing his job, his
statement will be the same as that of
the employer, thus covering up any
dangerous condition; that would, if -it
.became known, require the expenditure of profits to remedy.
Numerous other faults • have -developed In the legislation, but lack of
gpace prevents detailing them here.
However, even were the act perfectly
constructed, it! successful operation
would still depend on having administrators willing to enforce Its provisions. The Ontario Aet will, be dealt
with next weok.
ly safe, but so zealous was he in a
desire to give fair treatment, that
Governor Lister, alleged to have at
one time been a Union molder, removed him from office.
Vigilance Necetiary
Even with the vigilance of Wallace,
numerous schemes wero worked to
make the position of the injured person more difficult. One instance will
suffice. Tlie commission requires reports of all accidents from the employer as well as the employe, the
applicant 'for compensation, Originally there were two forms provided,
one tor each, but during the absence
of Wallace, the two oilier commissioners authorized the combining of
the reports of both employer and em-
Another indictment of the system a
majority of the workers support
comes from Schenectady,- N. Y. It <ls
a story of privation, destitution, misery and death almost unbelievable.
Georw Zdeb is a laboring man employed at the Schenectady iplant of
the American Locomotive Company,
His wage is $1.35 a day, and for many
weeks he has been working but one
day a week. On this pitiful sum, 'Mrs.
Zdeb, her husband and two children,
a boy four years old and a girl of six,
have been slowly starving to death.
A few days ago the mother was found
dead. The coroner's inrestigation
brought out the fact. The death was
due to starvation, was the coroner's
Congress .promptly came to the rescue of the stranded American tourists
with millions. Congress appropriated
a billion dollars for the help of, the
poor bankers, starving -for more
profits. What matters , It If women
and children starve as long as the
private owners of the banks get their
eight per cent? How long, how long,
Mr. Worker, are you going to continue
to vote for billions for the bankers and

children? Get wise. Don't be a fool
all your life. If you get started right
now maybe your wife will live long
enough to forgive you all the years
of neglect.—Appeal to Reason.

whfit I was doing to justify my existence, and Celia said she didn't think
it needed justifying. (Celia is always
saying things like that, leaving you
wondering just what she means.)

Cella muttered something about the

"I liav-en't the slightest idea," said
Celia. "Do you think you would get

"Well, my love,'' I said, "It's well

America was in it. Well, he Is. It is
certain that, taking advantage of the
collapse of watered stocks In America,
European capitalists thought they
would supplant financial dominations
of the United States, and preclptate
the war in order to bring .bond .Issues
and force the unloading of stocks ln
America. Europe went after American gold and got it. She sold American stocliB and caused such a decline
as to close all stock exchanges lest
the falling values become known.
But American capitalists were
ready. They abandoned the gold standard and caused the President to issue
half a billion dollars of Government
notes based on nothing, but these falling securities, They also Induced
Congress to authorize American bank*
ers to Issue a billion dollars ln clearance house certificates. This meant

no intention of wasting my time on

who is always hard up and has expectations ot Aunt Muriel, ^tolled In,
and threatened to punch my head if I
did anything of the sort. So there
was no help for it, you see.
A day of two later her benevolent
ladyship, who seemed to have turned
herself into a sort of election agent,
wrote to say that she had fixed up a
meeting of dock laborers, or something, ln connection with one of her
agencies for the distribution of (bath
butts among "the babies of the well-
behaved poor.
I begged "Cella to accompany me,
but she said she was adamant, whatever adamant may be.
"But, my love," I pleaded, "I've got

the noise subsided and   the meeting
commenced. '
Aunt Muriel, who was seated on the
other side of the chairman looked
at me curiously. Ah! I thought; my
estimable relative thinks I'm still in
a funis; but I will disillusion her. I
think I succeeded 'before the meeting
Several topping phrases opcurred to
we while the Jobbles person was arming; these I wrote down on sUpsof paper. Billy Goat., used to make his
speeches that way, only his agfent used
■ito scribble the notes for himi But
then Billy Goat never gets any first
rate inspirations, such as come to me
by the dozen when I'm really Jn form.
I was in form that night. After
the chairman had been rottin' for
-about ten minutes Muriel, Countess of
Hendon, coughed. Jobbles, wlio evidently knew her ladyship's temper,
then said: "Hi will not detain you
any longer, ladies and gentlemen, but
will content myself with calling upon
Lord Algeron Plusargent, the gifted
nephew of a gifted haunt ('ear, 'ear)
to address the meeting."
He sat down amidst a roar of
cheering from the meeting, and the
applause was redoubled when I rose to
my feet. 'Somehow my feet showed a
tendency to. rise to me, but I'm a good
sailor, so I .placed them firmly on the
deck and smiled at the audience.
I may say tbat I was subjected to
interruption at the very, commencement. A voice -from the .back ot the
hall shouted: "Ho, Algernon!" and
another interrupter invited his fellows to "look at 'is little monocle."
but Jobbles ;put .up his ample hand
and the nolne subsided. Then I
launched out.
"Ladies and Gentlemen—I confess
that I came to this meeting with a certain amount of misgiving, for I am by
no means a practiced speaker. (Hear,
hear.) The sight of your cheery faces,
however, has bucked me up no end.
It has really. (Voice from the back:
Not reallah, Algernon?) 'Br.'nve are
here tonight for the purpose of-er-er
('assisting charity,' whispered Jobbles
from behind) for the purpose of resisting charity. (Dead silence, broken by
an emphatic cough from Aunt Muriel,
warned me that I had put my bally
fo'ot In it. I covered juyself pouring out a glass of water, and the
voice shouted: 'Good, 'ealth, Algernon,'
as I gulped it down.)
"Charity needs no defense.'T continued. "We all believe In it, an.I a,1
ative, who has graced the platform
with ber presence, are proud to take
our share, ('Not 'arf,' from the voice.)
We believe In charity wisely administered, but (here I had an Inspiration) while charity to the respeotable
poor is a noble thing, charity to the
radical Socialists is an Ignoble thing.
(A few hear, hears, and a cough from
the dowager.)
"If we look around us, what do we
see? ('Rats!' from the voice.) A
gentleman says he sees 'rats.'
(Laughter.) I can only advise him to
see a doctor. (Loud laughter.) -Being more clear-sighted, perhaps, than

This Interruption was followed by
stupid laughter, under cover of which

The hope that the difficulty between
Austria-Hungary and Servia may. toe
"localized" and the Triple Entente and
Triple Alliance may not become involved has been ibased.-on the belief that
the rulers ot Europe must realize what
a terrific and senseless war would
otherwise result. It would, without
question be the worst war In history.
Our age's boasted advance in science
and art would but add to its horrors.
The stories of the number of men engaged and the casualties of ancient
wars are subject to discount. Easy
calculations as to subsistence and
transportation show how Impossible
was the estimate of the size of
the army of Xerxes, for example. But
the 'present military' footing of the
European nations is not a matter of
conjecture. Nor will these nations be
restricted to the primitive weapons
of the ancients. All are supplied with
modern enginery of death-dealing efficiency.
The financial aspects alone cause
one to shudder. The very anticipation
of such a stupendous conflict has
caused the stock exchanges throughout world to close, Great firms ln
Europe and even in the United States
have gone to the wall. For the first
time In forty years the New York
Stock Exchange has been closed
through fear. It Is estimated that lt
will cost $2.50 a day tor each soldier
engaged in war. This seems too low
for actual battle, but when lt ls multiplied by the armies the nations are
marshaling the total staggers the Imagination. We but feebly try to
comprehend an expenditure pf $50,.
000,000 a day. All of this would be
wasted, for war does not create a cent
of value, Its effect being wholly destructive. It is true that the men
would have to be fed and clothed and
transported and they must be equipped
with guns and ammunition. There
would be a temporary profit to some
in supplying goods and services, but

there would later be a terrible reckoning. The fiddler must (be paid and
the next century would not see tlie
war debt discharged.
But less easily, measured would be
the real horror. No money value can
be placed upon the loss of life, on the
ravages of disease, the physical toil
and suffering and on the permanent
maiming of the most physically fit ot
Europe. The Napoleonic wars' injurious -effect upon the French is
marked to this day, although Waterloo
was fought nearly a century ago. Not
the least baneful effect is the brutalizing tendency of war and it influence on the ideals of the people.

Social Property
Private Property
Bjr John Spargo
Socialism is frequently defined as
"the social ownership and control of
the means of production, distribution
and exchange." The Ibrief description
of the meanings of words which .we
call definitions are prbveribially misleading, and this definition is no ex-
caption to the rule, As we have seen,"
Socialism is much more than a movement aiming at the socialization of
the means of production, -distribution
and exchange. It is a philosophy of
history, a theory oi social dynamics.
In so far, however, as this definition
is a rough and ready attempt to describe the general economic aim of
the Socialist movement aud the Socialist conception of the economic
structure of what they believe will
be the next stage in the evolution of
society, it may be accepted, provided
only that we understand the lose sense
ln which the words "the pieans of production, distribution and exchange"
are used. In certain cases jackknives
and spades are "means of production,"
but Socialists do not contemplate iba
socialization of spades and wheelbarrows:. If they, obtained complete .control of the Government In any State,
or in the nation, it is ridiculous tb
suppose that they would want to in-
stituo the public ownership and control of jackknives and market baskets. To avoid captious criticism,
taerefore, it Is admitted that Socialism noes noflnvolve the ownership t.f
, a'l Means of production, distribution
and exchange.
1' It were not that the q unifying
word would cause confusion to readers
am! hearers lather than ovove enlightening ard helpful, since it woulc1 convey no exact meaning to their minds,
it would be better to say that Socialism involves the eocial ownership
of the principal means of production,
distribution and exchange. Many
critics first set up a straw man which
they call "Socialism," and then spend
their time in gravely knocking him
down. First, they define Socialism as
tke destruction of all private property,
and then proceed to attack the huge
bureaucracy of their own . creation.
They point to the existence of hundreds of thousands of small farms and
May thrive as bride, or belle, or flirt.*
Cloilies, then, Are necessaaies of life.
In a large sense they are- socfaliy
necess&iy, but they are peculiarly personal -in their use, and properly the
subject of private property. Social
ownership of men's pants and ladies'
shirtwaists would be out of the ques-
tion. Personal tastes, hygenic considerations, ahd the fact that they can't
he manufactured in any desired quan-
ity make the socialization of clothes
an absurdity. Roads are quite as necs-
sary to civilized man, socially and individually, as clothes. We must have
roads at some sort, and good -roads
are desirable. But roads cannot be
multiplied Indefinitely. Land is too
valuable and too limited to allow every citizen to make his own roads.
Besides that, it would be physically
Impossible to have every citizen
make aud own private roads to every
place he desired to go. The Idea of
anybody not owning his own clothes
and the idea of everbody owning(his
own roads are equally fantastic. Just
as a hat or a .pocket handkerchief is
a good illustration of private property,
being something which the owner can
use personally, and without Injury or
inconvenience to others, so the public
street is a good illustration of -social
ownership and control—of active Socialism, Roads are a common necessity, and must be used in common. The
humblest and poorest child has Just
as much,right to use the streets of a
city, and just as big a share in them,
as the wealthiest millionaire.
•So much for the principles which
distinguish private and social property,
Now let us turn to the' production of
things. Shoes are today commonly
made in great factories which turn out
thousands—and in some cases millions
—of pairs every year. The workers in
these factories do not make all the
shoes for themselves; they do not
make them for the use of the owners
of the (factories. The shoes are made
to.jup.ply the common demand for
shoes from "those who, while they
must wear shoes, cannot make them
for themselves. What interest, then,
have the owners of the shoe factories
in the manufacture of so many shoes?
Simply the desire to make profit out
of the social need.   They employ   so

^in^strles^iu-dBmuTrt-to-TOOT^qmany workers to make shoes and pay
if the State is going to confiscate these
and manage them Itself.
Of course,  the  Socialists contemplate nothing of the kind.
It is inconceivable that the State
will ever attempt to take away   the
artist's  brushes,  the  small farmer's
farm, or the tailor's needle and shears.
These are all means of production, it
Is   true, but so are   the   housewife's
sewing machine,   frying   pan   and a
hundred other articles of dally   use,
the socialization of which would be
Impossible, and   too  absurd   for anything but opera bouffe if It were possible.   Tools and other necessities of
production which are used by individual owners will, it Is certain, n#ver
be taken away by tho Stnte. Only tools
that arc so complex as to require asso
dated use, Industries in whlrh there
is a division of labor, and ownership
of the necessary agencies of production by others thnn the produce™, will
ever be socialized.   The only   conceivable exception to this would be
cases In which the safety and well-
being of fhe community necessitated
such a strict supervision of some ind!-
vtdiiHl's product as would only bo possible under the State's ownership of
the necessary agents for Its production,   Tho pofslblllty of any product

"Jean Jaures Assassinated! French
Socialist .Leader Killed While Discussing War Situation with Comrades in
Little Restaurant."
These headlines over a Paris dispatch, dated July 31, 1914, told the
sad story. Some of the capitalist
daily paper did not even see fit to
publish the important news item.
When Austrian-Hungary declared
war on Servia the International Socialist .Bureau in Brussels immediately called a meeting of its members
to discuss the situation. It was clear
that with Austria under martial law
it would be impossible to convene the
International Socialist Congress in
Vienna on the 23rd of August, which
was the date agreed upon for the
opening of the International Parliament of Labor and Socialism. Jean
Jaures, as one of its leading members,
attended this meeting of the Bureau
in Brussels, at which the European
war situation was discussed and an
agreement reached to change the
place and date of the Congress by
convening the same in Paris on the
8th of August.
Jean Jaures had just returned from
Brussels and prepared a great speech
on the threatening European war and
the attitude of the International Socialist movement. The death of Jean
Jaures means a great loss to the International Socialist and Labor movement. For the last ten or more years
he was the Bebel of the French So-
ciiaist movement. At the International
Socialist Congress Jaures was one of
the leading spirits and his great work
against militarism and for international peace caused fear and consternation among the ruling powers of
Europe, whose might depends on
dreadnaughts, Krupp guns and bayonets. The real greatness of Jean
Jaures was first generally recognized
during the exciting days of the "Affaire Dreyfus," when Emile Zola was
compelled to flee to England after he
had hurled his "J'accuse!" at the
Government. It was Jaures who then*
stepped to the front and defied the entire military, Chauvinst, Nationalist
and Anti-Semitic clique that was responsible for the incarceration of Cap-
114a{n-DreyfUH-oirD*5vn*s"Island. "tn~the
press and in Parliament he waged war
for right and justice, and after a few
months he had whipped the entire conspiracy crowd to a standstill. Emile
Zola returned triumphantly to Paris,
Dreyfus was declared innocent and
permitted to return to France.
Jaures' political development from a
capitalist professor and politician to
a Socialist philosopher and powerful
leader is remarkable in many ways. It
seems tbat it was this extraordinary
process of political development that
fitted him for the role of getting   to-
ferred to make shoes by hand In
old-fashioned way, there could be
'-Since the Workmen's Compensation
Law .went into effect on July 1, more
than 14,000 accidents have been reported and claims to compensation
filed. They are now coming in at the
rate of over 1,000 a day.
These are figures that will be apt
to strike most observers with something like dismay. They seeni to be
of a magnitude calculated to overwhelm tbe operations of the law and
exhaust the resources for compensation before the new system is a year
old. a
But they are open to no such interpretation. 'Many of the accidents reported will be found to come from employments not covered by the law. A
great many more will be found too
slight to claim compensation under
the requirement of disability extending beyond two weeks. Only about
35 per cent of the claims will prove
to be valid, according to present calculations.
What the figures do emphasize is
the great toll of life and limb exacted
in our modern mechanical Industries.
It existed before this law; but we saw
it dimly in scattered reports and suits
for damages. It exists now, and we
see it all clearly in figures which are
comprehensive of .the State. The cost
was before uncertain and unjustly
distributed. It is no greater now ,*but
it has been made calculable and the
main burden of it shifted from the
workmen to the whole industrial society.
Whether society will bear this burden patiently is a matter which is yet
to be determined.
What the laundrymen are said to be
doing to recover the expense • to
which they have been put by the compensation law is what most employers will do presently. To pass a
charge along to the public is a sim-
,ple matter. The worst of it is that
the increase in prices will be much
larger than the outlay which it Is designed to cover.
The simplest of all lessons in political economy is the one that many
people never learn. A small tax may
rest lightly upon the one who pays
it, but iby the time it reaches the consumer it is a tax of appreciable size.
A cent'or a fraction of a cent at the
beginning becomes an excuse for a
nickel or a dime later on. Everything
of this kind is passed on, so that as
the complexities of government increase, tbe cost of living rises in a
The fact that public regulation
often ends with the imposition of a
tax accounts for a. good many failures of reform which are not otherwise explained.
Already in cases where employers
cannot see their way clear to passing
the tax along they have begun to discriminate against married men. If
si ch discrimination is permitted there
will soon be a new economic problem
in industry so serious that lt will affect the whole public welfare,   '
There is nothing easier than to talk
about   "social   Justice" o.i .platforms
those fellows are only worth ?1.50 to

they are rendering a social service.

number of people to do nothing but

National Committee of the American
Socialist Party Issues Appeal for
International Peace
CHICAGO, Aug. 17.—Condemnation
of the European Powers engaged in
war and a demand that the United
States act as mediator are contained
in a proclamation issued yesterday by
the national committee of the Socialist Party.' The" statement also calls
upon foreign-born workingmen in the
United States whose home Governments are at war, to hold joint meetings to "emphasize the fraternity of
all working people."
In the proclamation adopted the
national committee of the American
Socialist Party extends fraternal
greetings to the working class of Europe irrespective of nationality, and
calls attention to' the fact that the
working people have no reason to
fight each other in death dealing war
brought about by irresponsible, insane rulers and the capitalist classes
whose tools they are. Poverty, hunger, unemployment and oppression of
the working class in any country, are
not caused by the working class of another country, but by their own ruling
classes, the proclamation says. War
is a -barbarian method of settling real
or imaginary wrongs or grievances,
and for this reason the Socialist
Party condemns the present war as a
crime on the nations of Europe. The
ruling classes of Europe have shown
by their latest action that they are ab-
soluetly. unfit to protect the life and
welfare of the nations.

Tin* rethark was niade quite recently in out'
hearing that the present mir would solve the unemployed question by "killing a few off"! The
individual who makes remarks of'this nature is tlie
last person to think of "going to the front," and
invariably has sufficient grey matter, if sparingly
used, to cover a five cent piece.
'Depopulating a country never solved the unemployed question, for to the mind capable of the
most superficial analysis it. must be immediately
apparent that this would have, the reverse effect.
livery country has experienced a period of depression after a war of any length. True, this applies
more often to the vanquished than the conquerors,
but both Great Britain and Japan found war unprofitable—that is the working class liave. It is
the interests of tlie worker we consider, not the parasite whose patriotism is so great that he will take
advantage of his country's misfortune to accumulate wealth. By killing a few workers you reduce
your market. It does not matter what the living
conditions of these workers'"were, they have been
consulting a certain amount of product and required a certain quantity of clothing, and with
their death it will be necessary to find another market. If this market* i.s not found, and it must De
admitted by -all that this is no easy problem to
solve, then we still have over-production and unemployment. As a matter of fact, the statement
that the* killing of a few workers will solve the
unemployed problem is. the rankest, rottenest and
most asanine of remarks it is possible to make.
The pet argument of the capitalist apologist is
that unemployment does not exist, and that any
man who really desires to work can get a job. This
is in part true, but, not only must be desire to work,
he must be prepared to work longer hours and for
less pay than the other fellow. IMie is willing to
do litis, then he slmll always have a job. Tlie unemployed are always credited with being thriftless,
ne'er-do-wells, who would not Work if they had Ihe
chane-e. If this is the case and the men at present
fighting for their lives and King are by being
killed making room for the unemployed, then the
situation looks worse than hopeless. We do not
care to be so uncharitable as to suggest that the
men fighting nre the unemployed or a portion of

"War may be described as a disease—a fever—
which periodically attacks the civilized nations of
the world. One o'f the greatest sounjes for breeding the bacteria is the yellow journalism that flourishes so largely ia every large city or town, both
here and in Europe. So far the European powers
have succeeded admirably in maintaining the closest secrecy with regards to the movements of
troops. Within the last three or four days about
as many inches of authentic news has been allowed
to lie published, while most of the news printed has
been a reiteration of official news or ''rumor and
It was the -Japanese who first, gave Europe the
idea that if wars were to be conducted successfully,
secrecy was.indipensalile. It was the Oriental instinct that first conceived the necessity of .striking
first and talking afterwards; they were determined
that war should not be conducted for the benefit of
the newspaper reader, who saw nothing in the -war
beyond a crazy desire to satisfy a ghoulish appetite for news—to know how many were killed!
During the Boer war of 1899-1002 every petty
victory, or alleged victory, was announced by special editions of the papers, bulletin hoai'ds. music-
hall artists, town-criers, etc.. and when m-en heard
•this news they howled and roared on the streets
of the big cities, smashed windows, blocked thoroughfares, slapped people, who were strangers to
them, on Mie back, and insisted on shaking hands
with them, jostled and assaulted inoffensive
females, and finished by getlting crazy drunk, all
to satiate their excited and over-wrought feelings
at the thought of victory! This was more or less
attributable to the manner in whioh the newspapers
served up the news of our glorious and brilliant (!)
resistance of a handful of Dutch farm'ers. Every
edition that did not contain the news of victory—
or disaster—foretold some brilliantly conceived
plan by the editorial strategists to defeat the Boers.
Men thought more-of the morning course of sensation served up by the newspapers than they did of
their breakfast.
The absence of war news, however, is calculated
to have a soothing effect upon the present temperamental spirit of patriotism that exists in this
and other countries. True, it may not allay the
feelings of those •who have relatives and friends
in the vanguard. The only knowledge that they
have of the demise of husband, brother or son is
contained in the stereotyped official notice to the
effect "yourihusban'd (or whoever the relative may

This is considered sufficient intimation for the
relative of the worker, while it is possible that tho
friends of those in commissioned ranks may receive
a more lengthy note of condolence. In any case,
you know the obituary notice of the worker,
"fallen in the defense of his country." To the
ultra patriot, who has nothing to lose but his voice
through shrieking "Rule Britannia." this may pa-
pear sublime and poetic.  It is!  Sublime hell!
To the rational and sane individual, capable
of thinking outside the passion and hatred engendered by an alleged patriotisin.it is tlie most

For the past year or more Beaver
Mines notes were handled by John
Loughran, Local secretary, but owing
to .pressure of other business and
working twelve hours shifts, Sundays
included, 'he has not time to do justice to the happenings of the locality
as a scribe, and ls anxious to find a
substitute. "Old John" will, however,
continue to deal with the Local Union

The benefit dance in aid of the Hillcrest disaster relief fund was about
the best entertainment held in Beaver for a long time., About forty
couple glided gracefully around the
Lyric Wall from 9 p. m. on August
7th until 3 next morning. The orchestra furnished some of the best music
ever heard in Beaver since the orchestral concert of two years ago.
Dave Lamond, an old Beaverite,
came from .Bellevue to assist the orchestra with his picalo, and as a
musician, Dave takes a lot of beating. We might also add that Mr. Lamond came here at his ow:i ?xpei.?e
and gave his service free. Jack Claw-
ford, who as a violinist, is out on his
own in these parts, was at hi* bast,
whilst Mrs. Cameron, as pianist (and
all the other musicians), were in such
good form that those who did not
dance declared the received value for
their money ln music. Tbe sale of
tickets realized over $60, which, considering it was the first full pay
most of the men had had for months,
was not too bad, but when things get
well away here, no doubt another
benefit concert will be gotten up. The
cash has been forwarded to A. 3, Carter, Pernie. Jack Crawford and John
G. Prentice, fire   bosses,   were    re-
nection with Beaver Mines, and at
present is thinking of returning east.
Mr. iMorrlson, who has been here for
nearly three years, is well respected
and was made a J. P. about twelve
months ago. We learn that a .presentation to he and Mrs. .Morrison is
under way, by the' members of the
church with which they were hoth
closely identified.

Local Union Notes
The regular meeting of this Local
was convened at 3 p, m. on Sunday
by Bro. Sam" Nicholson, president,
with a fairly averaige attendance, Perhaps the resolution passed at the previous meeting, when it was agreed to
collect a fine of 50 cents, from all
members not attending at least one
regular meeting per month, helped, to
fill the hall. After the minutes cf
the previous meeting were adopted as
read, Bro. Tom Huges, on behalf of
tbe auditing committee, stated that he
and Bro. Tom Barnes audited the accounts of the Local for the six
months ending June 30th, nnd after
examining all cheques, receipts and
vouchers, signed the books as being
found correct. .    .
The  pit committee report created
a good amount of discussion, several
brothers declaring that tlieir places
were abnormal. Eventually a resolution was passed instructing the secretary to write District President
Phillips to visit this camp at as early
a date as 'possible, in „ order to
straighten matters out, if possible.
Bro. -Sem. Nicholson sprang a surprise on the meeting by tendering hia
resignation as president, which, after
several expressions of regret, was
accepted. Bro. Nicholson has- beeu
.president for about two years, and
was always deeply interested in the
welfare o'f the Local and the U. 51.
W. of A. in general. He and his colleague, C. Banttilliers, are leaving
the camp for Great Palls, .Mont.,
where Sam'used to reside, and where
his son, Frank, and other relatives are
at present.
A few brothers disputed the measurement of their places, as s'hown by
the pit boss, but on the places being
measured by the pit committee, In
the presence of the complainants, it
was .found that the pit boss' statements were quite correct As impressions that measurements are not
correct often occur, although a re-
measurement proves that such is not
the case, we think it would be wise
in future for a competent Local official to accompany the pit boss whtm
taking measurements and to keep a
copy of all contract measurements.

philanthropic institution, but the loan
had .been made .pending payment of
fire insurance. On receipt of same,
however, the member had skinned

obligation. The matter was left in
the hands of the executive to do what
is best under the circumstances.
We were also in receipt of the District quarterly financial statement,
containing several items of expenditure which are rather unusual. The
secretary was Instructed to write for
further information regarding same.
Reports of Committees
The pit committee reported having
done business as per Local's instructions, also business that had cropped
up in the Interim, chief of which was
the dismissal of three members, and
the rate of wages to be paid the inside dump crew. The committee reported the reinstatement of two of
the brothers, and that they were
awaiting an answer from the superintendent as to wages. Report accepted
and instructions given to pit committee to again see the management and
demand the third brother reinstated.
Measuring committee reported a
fairly satisfactory tour; but that there
was far too much coal in the chutes,
which meant a good deal of lost time
when the mine was supposed to oe
working steady. The pit committee
were instructed to look into the
matter; also question fairness in setting on diggers.
The auditors made the quarterly
report which showed we were just
keeping our head above water, and
that retrenchment would be the order
of the next quarter.
Examination committee reported as
We, tbe undersigned, being appointed a committee to examine Bellevue

otherwise would have been, nevertheless  a  very  enjoyable  evening   was
spent by    those    present.      Pincher

The Coleman Co-operative Store Is
calling the attention of its patrons and
friends to the necessity of observing
a wise caution in the purchasing of
flour and necessities of life. The store
further reassures its patrons that their
interests will be safe-guarded and that
in spite of -panic and price-boosters
they will use every effort to keep
prices normal. For seven years the
"Co-op" has catered to the requirements of Coleman citizens, and It is
safe to assume that they will observe
the same legitimate methods of doing
business, in spite of the present war,
as heretofore. By supporting this
store you are guaranteeing the price
of commodities and securing yourself
against excessive charges.

Bravo! Arkansas
Coal Diggers
By Eugene V.  Debs
Hats off to the Arkansas coal miners!
They have routed the gunmen and
delivered a body-blow to government
by assassination.
For some time there has been a
strike ou in the Hartford valley,
where one Franklin Bache, arbitrarily refused to deal with the Union and
insisted upon operating a scab concern. When the miners in his employ
struck he promptly did what the oper-
tors in West Virginia and Michigan
did, and what the operators in Colorado are now doing, namely, he
ordered out "his privately-owned and
armed gunmen and assassins, a small
army, equipped with high power rifles,
to slaughter the miuers and their
wives and babes and re-enact Ludlow.
'But the miners had heard of .West
Virginia and Michigan and 'Colorado,
and they were not caught napping.
They were not so well armed as
Bache's red-light gunmen, but what
they lacked ln physical equipment was
more than made up in moral stamina,
and when the smoke of battle cleared
away several gunmen were found to
have bitten the dust and.the rest vanished into mist and no trace of them
has 'been found since..
Bravo, ye caol-digging slaves of tbe
pits! You have done your duty in a
heroic manner and deserve the applause of all honest men. May the
miners everywhere catch your .brave
spirit and follow your inspiring example!
Government by private gunmen and
the massacre of honest toilers must
<be put an end to in the United States.
We Socialists are for peace and we
are steadfastly opposed to violence
except when lawless violence is forced
upon us and we are compelled to fight
for our lives and in defense of our
families and homes.
In recent years the great trusts and
corporations have gone entirely outside of the law to wage their lawless
warfare on lawful labor Unions. They
Jiave established their thug-recruiting
agencies in all the large cities,
through which they drag the slums to
recruit their army of cutthroats and
This private army of t*e corporations, an absolutely lawless gang of
man-killers, is armed with machine
guns and hjgh nower jjfleg. and-when.
for standing up in court like a in,in
and admitting it!
If government by gunmen is to prevail, then liberty is dead and the la-
hormovement a farce.
The Arkansas .miners have throttled
the monster and I appeal to the miners everywhere to arm themselves and
prepare to do the same. They ate
strictly within their lawful right in
arming themselves against lawless invasion and in defense of their homes.
The next assessment that is levied
by the United Mine Workers and. the
Western Federation of Miners should
be levied for the raising of a gunman
defense fund for furnishing each
memiber with a high power rifle and
500 rounds for the protection of their
lawful rights, the defense of their
wives and children and for Wiping out
government toy gunmen and assassination in the United States.
A committee of a New York organization which is trying to save the
lives of babies has estimated the value
of the average infant at $2,900 and
the value of the babies who die each
year in Xew York city at $40,000,000.
The committee got its result by subtracting the cost of bringing up a
baby from the average earning of
the successfully brought-up adult.
Why it should make any difference
whether the balbies which are lost
would have 'been worth, to somebody
not mentioned, forty million dollars
or forty cents may be hard foi
thoughtful persons to understand.
The habit of regarding .babies as investments, with a net profit accruing
to some one—after expenses of bringing up, feeding, amusing and finally
burying are .paid—is neither uplifting
nor Intelligent.
The baby's .ledger, in a ideal Society, woulid just balance, with the addition of a small percentage of what
might be called social reinvestment to
help the race along. Xo Qne would
get rich by being able to. subtract
what others spent from what they
earned and keep the remainder. The
baby, as he grew up, would be useful.
He would work hard, not only for
himself, but for the community, but
he would get back dividends on nearly all such work in the form of advantages gained from living in surti
a community. There would be no unused surplus, either in the hands of
individuals or in the public hands.
The millions of dollars saved babies
would be "worth" would not be locked
in bank_^aults^__It_Kould~.aI!—go-to-

ROME, Aug. 20.—Pope Pius X died at 1 o'clock
this morning. He had been ill several days, but
alarming symptoms did not develop until Wednesday morning. Throughout the day Doctors Mareh-
iafuva and Amici devoted their utmost energies to
stimulating their patient ami keeping him alive.
Tlie cardinals were notified of the Pope's grave
condition and some of them who entered the sick
room describe the impressive and heart-rending
scene, especially when the pontiff, rousing hiniMlf
from time to time, spoke. Wednesday was one of
the most anxious days in the history nf the papacy.
Tlie witole world knew the Pope was indispoiiwd,
but it was supposed lie was suffering from «\w
iiwiial ailment, the gout. Up to noon even the members of the household were unaware of the seriousness ot the developments. Almost without warning clinic Die vvoid lhat thc pontiff wiih ul death's
door. All day his agony continued. At times he
revived and was able to say a few word*, but h«pe
of saving him was finally abandoned, ftcvcral
times throughout the city and the apoHtolie palace
the rumor spread that the Pope had died, only to
be denied later.
The Pupe's last illness begun almost coincident-
