Civil War in Colorado
In union there is strength. In
labor unions there is sometimes
strength and sometimes weak
ness. Labor has as much right
to organize as capital has.
Observation leads us to con
clude that it matters not how
good is the organization or how
beneficent is the object or pur
pose, if bad or morally weak
men are at the head, more harm
than good will be accomplished.
Labor is usually more preju
diced on account of class or,color
than is capital. Labor bars Ne
groes from its organizations
when it can. Capital rarely
The strike in Colorado ha3 be
come a civil war. The strikers
appear to be in the wrong. Pres
ident Wilson has on his hands a
civil war which in some respects
is more perplexing than the war
with Mexico. By asking the aid
of the Rockefellers, the presi
dent has indicated his inability
to deal with the situation. Oh
for a Grover Cleveland or Theo
dore Roosevelt at this time!
on the Job.
It looks now ?as though the
statesmen of Latin America, or
at least of Argentina. Brazil and
Chile, are widening the scope of
their intermediations, and wish
to take up for consideration the
entire Mexican situation.
We believe the powers of Eu
rope will give their moral sup
port to this.
With Mr/ secretary Bryan as
an apostle of the Prince of Peace
the indications are now that
there will not be a cruel, need
less and bloody war between this
country and Mexico, for which
we are devoutly thankful.
The Slit Skirt
"To the Editor of The State:
"I am not favorably impressed
with slit skirts, or I do not ap
prove of ladies wearing them.
I hate to see a lady wearing one.
I refrain from expressing fully
my objections to the slit skirt.
I will say this: I do not know
that my wife wants one-*-if she
does just let her get one and put
it OM and wear it before the pub
iic, then you will see an account
of our separation in the papers.
I wish the public generally to
understand that. I am not dis
cussing their wearing of "slit
skirts" when I speak of my at
titude to the wearing of one by
my wife. I am only trying to
impress the public with the fact
that my family knows I am at
the head of our family and wheth
er I try to "boss" or not, 1 am
regarded as "boss" as pertain
ing to ridiculous things or any
thing else. Now, a word to the
heads of other families; If you
will take the same stand (as to
slit skirts) that I have taken,
they will'go out of sty le at once.
Not that we would cast any re
flection upon any lady who
wears a slit skirt, but hoping
they will soon see the ridiculous
ness of wearing one, as ev?n the
black female race are heard to re
mark 'It don't look good to
me'." , "B. S. Moody."
The foregoing, taken from our
esteemed contemporary, hits the
nail on the head, or rather, hits
the skirt oh the slit. "The
black female race" must feel
complimented; for "the black
female race are heard to remark.
'It don't look good to me. " Now
if it be in order, Wfe would Mke
to hear from th?, brown female
race and the yelpw female race
and (wouldn't? it delight our
hearts also to hear, from) the
white female race. For what
ever the white female race may
have to say on the slit skirt,
question is bound to go. Brother
Moody,'stir up the white fem?le
race for lis on this question, and
when you get them to join with
"the black female race" and say
"It don't look good to me," then
it is good by to the slit skirt.
Most men of the black male
race .and every other shade or
color of the male race abominate
the slit skirt, if W/?rn by their
wives, their mothers, their
daughters or their sisters; but
they happen in many instances
not to be tlie heads but the > fig
ure-heads of their families. We
welcome the deliverance of Mr.
Moody and hope it will result in
good. We also take off our hats
to "the black female race," and
say with them, "It don't look
good to me." We wish to re
mark in conclusion that being a
member of the male race we are
not. courting a fight with the fe
male race, for we recognize "that
the female of the species is more
deadly than the male."
