road and killed all the belnt* (worker*)
Ihey coulJ meet with; nay, (ometime*
by day Ihey fell upon Ihem iu the Held*
and murdered lhe ableat aud strongest
ol them." During tbe l.mnus ami infamous Peloponeeecan W.r which
lasted 27 y>n s the (spartan ranks were
so thinned lhal thousands o( Ihe wotk-
ers were sent into the army where (in y
(ought most hraveiy. Aia rea.rd 'or
tins. 2,000 were (reed and lent lo one oi
tbe icmjilo. ol the godi. This wss the
last sa iti ol those 2,000 brave worker*
und fighters; they were butchered id
cold blood. Tins occurred io the yrsr
42' D. C. Plato, it will tie remembered
gave to the workera only "half a sun..."
Such horrors could nol last lorever and
(rom ll.ii brutality came the ancient
trade unions.
These tritles union* were first organised from Ihs boldeataii I bravest ol tbe
workers, who lormed bands o( robhera,
pirates and  nomads,   From   the*, or-
gsni7. iii.ans clime tbe "tree laborer*" so
called "I   ......em    time*.     These Iree
laborer* were in time organiud int..
trades. It bis the ancient Usile unions
(rom Tyro that built Solomon's Temple.
They also built ibe Parthenon at
Athens It. C. 438. These buildings are
Ihe most msgniflcent ever huill The
trade nnion* nf Tyre, Rome, aud Athena
were sl*(e Institutions. They elected
their own "bosses" and perlorme I ill
tbe important work ol the elate. They
built the great temples, oonatrucied
tbe famous roadi, conducted the transportation both hy laud and sea. In (set
tbe Brest robber nation ol Home, hod It
not been lor har conquest! .nd th.
slavery ol the captives bid lair to become a socialistic co-operative commonwealth. For ns*rly 800 years, the laud
waa nationalised It was during the
reign o( Julius Gaeaar aided by Cicero
both ol whom we.e .rislocr.t* Ib.t th*
powsr ol the tnclant tr.d. union* were
destroyed. ('In ml ins, however, with
the help olC.t.llne (ought bravelv lor
tbe union*. Both were socialistic in
Ibeir speech** and actions. At this
time, tbe unions became somewhat
political as lhe following trinsliii'.n will
■how: "The member* ot the l-'isher-
man's I'nion nominated Potliu* Rulas
lor member ol the Hoard ol  Work*.
"Tb* International Gold Workers'
Association of lh e city ol Pompeii demand lor members ol the Hoard ol
Work*,   Cuapu*  Paul*.     Verua    the
home-born with ber pupils ii all right,
put Mn. Citpclhi to the Iront (nr a *eat
on the 11 mrd of Magistratea."
The strike* which occurred In the
ancient day* were frequent and generally attended hy bloodshed. It is re-'
corded that from lll'.l to 70 B. 0. tbe
organized workers Irom Asia Minor to
I'ilbiis nl llereiilefl made heroin rff.rl*.
to place the political power in their
owu hands and -abolish "id.ts.es.
It was .hiring this (hue that the (list
great "universal strike too* place."

ancient labor leaden.
The unions ol ancient Rome were
public b,idics employed by the oitlea
.ml the BBlion. They existed in Ibis
form fur SOO years until Julias Caesar,
Iur the first time in R una, made law*
•gainil the onion*. The slaves had no
rigid tn orgai.iin. The trades were Well
organised. Even tbe tux-collectors
vi.-.tig.tlili) were one ul the large aud
iiuportani unions. The teamiter* and
tnriiers ui.iuns were alia n.ost important. The Bgrn iiltural union cultivated Ihe 'fields. ' Il wai these union*
that «... led t.ut a sort ol national co-
opeiu'ion or .-'.at.- Socialism.
To illustrate: The grain received by
the Tax Colleclon union waa transported I.y the Carrier Union to the city.
There it waa turned over lo the United
Millers; Irom them it passed to the
United Bakers Union an.l *o on with all
the product* of the so I. The profit
take*) was not knoan. The aristocrat
could not lis a boss nnless be waa a
uni.in worker, and so lhe modern monopoly t'f today could not exist in ancient
, Rome.
The mine* a'l belong to the nation.
The ore ruined I.y the Mines' Union
wai turned over to the Smelter* Union
and ihev in turn (applied lb* iron to
the Iron Workers t'uiou and so on.
The reason Rome was stile lo conquer

greater generals, or braver men, but,
