The Proletariat Is Gradu
ally Taking Control the
World Over. War Horses
The army of the proletariat still
contIlinues its victorious march inl
'every country on tile globe. The rev
ohtionllary wave is still rising, and is
destinled ere long to shatter all oppo
sition. Those in the kniow cannot
help einjoying the plight of the master
c'lass. How helpless they seem and
how woefully ignorant. They are in
control of the ship, but they no long
er steer it. They liave noi coImIpass,
and society is drifting and will con
iiinue to do so until the working class
coniIes forward and takes the helm.
The capitalist is now utterly unable
to gauge the future. In a system
of production for sale, supply must
anticipate demand, and owing to the
peculiar situation, due to the stop
page of the war, the inflation of the
currency through the floating of war
loans, etc., we are going rapidly to
The machinery of wealth produc
tion, or rather the present system
of wealth production, that has pro
duction for sale and profit, as the
be all and end all of its existence, is
rapidly flying to pieces. It is this
fact (the breakdown of capitalist
tproduction ). that is the fundamental
cause of the situation in Europe.
The allies have won and yet have not
won anything, because there is noth
ing to win. Capitalism is played out.
It is impossible, however, for the
master class to realize this, and they
will continue to plow the sands until
the proletariat moves in its own be
It is now stated that the allies are
going to withdraw from lRussia, and
it may be expected that they will
withdraw from Germany also, or
their troops stand a good chance of
hecoming infected with bIolshevisnm.
The Spartacus group have the situa
tion well in hand, and are bound to
establish full control in the immedi
ate future. It is an interesting spec
tacle that confronts the world. The
Spartacls gloup are a small body in
the midst of a sea of enemies, and
vet they move steadily ahead. All
the power and might of the allies and
Geriininii reactionaries combined can
not stay the advance of the revolu
tionlary army. In the recent election
in Britain, the deep dyed red section
mostly kept away froml the polls.
They have a card ip their sleeve that
will be played when the situation is
fully developed. It may appear that
now anid again a tenmporary setback
will occur, but the advance all along
the line will be maintained. The
awful misery folgowing in the wake
of the war. was anticipated by all
thinking minds. Look at the condi
tions in Belgium for instance. They
appear to he worse than they hlave
ever heorn. The demloilization of
the millions of working men il Bl'it
aiin. and the throwing on the streets
of hundreds of thousands of working
wiinnell is likely to create havoc ill
the old country. Something is bound
to give Ihere immediately. It is im
mossible to feed the slaves of England
Iundter the old systtem and she looks
like heing the next to make tIhe
Iplunge. The working ien do not
scem yet to grasp the fclt thai the
lmastelr class has clean anld complete
ly lost its head. It does not know
what to do. The capitalist controls
tile sate. butI the IiLLlthinie won't
work, and the world is waiting with
haited blrealh for the universal rise
of the piroletariat.
'That this is imminent, there is no
doubt. Sipurred on bIy necessity, and
driven by the insane badgering of
ignorant ollicials. the working class
is now forced to miove. The goal
should lie kept clearly inl view. The
working class ownership of the mleans
of wealtih production, and the aboli
tion of the plrofit system. Every
thing is going line for the slave class,
therefore be bold and march coni
dently forward. It is impossible to
be too audacious. It is inlpossible to
demnand too mnuch, because nothing
short of the whole shooting nlatch
is of any use. It is now realized that
complnlronlise is imlpossiblle, between
the working class and the itaster
class. It is a fight to a, finish, a fight
to the death. In many countries tlhe
hitterness between the contending
elements will increase as the conflict
grows tmore desperate, and quarter
will lie neither given nor taken. The
inan who ai few years ago looked for
ward, to a peaceful transition fromn
capitalism to the co-operative conl
nliliwealth, perceives now that this
is not likely to occur. The capitalist
system will be smashed to smither
eens before all the building of the
co-operative coniimonwealth begins.
The ol(1 war horses of the social
revolution smell the battle fronm afar.
and are lining up for tile last great
political combat. The next great
clash Ibetween capital and lahor will
lhe the last boecause there will he no
cessation until the slaves comes ouit
on top. The triumph of our class is
as certain as tonorrow's sunrise and
it behooves us each and every one
to do our hit, and wherever we halp
pen to be to take our stand and play
our part. For the first time since
civilization began, the slave and the
master stands face to face. All the
veneer, all the hypocrisy, has been
cast aside. The mask is off. We
know our eneimy and he knows us.
"Down wiLh the system of profit."
Down with the Irarriers that bar our
way to liberty. How small the move
Iment seemed five years ago, com
pared with the dimensions it has
reached today. Three hundred mil
lions already lined up under the red
flag, and the numbers increasing by
the hundred thousand every day.
The victory is ours in this generation.
The master class is in mortal dread
of the future. It judges the working
class by itself. The working men
and women are the only decent creat
ures on the planet, and the world
they build will be a clean world, a
world in which fraud, corruption,
vice, filth and all the fruits of cap
ialtsm can not exist. The master

WOMEN MAY RUN

Hotel Keeping Is an Art.
(By United Press.)
London, Dec. 27.--(By Mail.)
There is one bIranch of service which
is going to make a big call on woman
Hitherto one of the least explloited
fields of service for women is in
hotels and clubs. Before the war this
field was monopolized by aliens, but
many of them will never be permitted
to return to it, and it is certain that
hotel and club managers will avail
themselves gladly of women's labor
to meet the demands of their deplet
Even in the most conservative
clubs women have replaced men so
successfully during the war there is
little doubt that their services will
be retained, as waitresses, bookkeep
ers and interpreters.
Several hotels have been managed
entirely by women during the war,
and patrons of these hotels have de
clared that they never received bet
Running a hotel is very much like
running a household on a large scale,
and so women here find themselves
in a proper setting. This field will
embrace many types and many classes
of women. There are positions rang
ing from scullery maid to manager.
Hotel keeping is an art which takes
years to master, and woman's expe
rience in household management will
go far towards making her efforts
a success from the outset. Women
can enter this field of labor without
any loss of dignity.
l)runkenness in first-class clubs
and hotels is a thing almhnost unheard
of, and a woman faces no more temp
tation than she would as a shop as
sistant or chauffeur.
itself and consents to be transformed
from a parasitic element into a use

then may the Lord have mercy upon

the accumulated misery of 10,000
years will be avengedl at one stroke.

All bu1t a hall' dozen of thie 48 states are expected to adopt

liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation
thereof from the United States and all territory subject to tihe
jurisdiction thereof, for beverage purposes are hereby pro

"Section 3.-The article shall be inoperative unless it shall
have been ratified as an amendment to the constitution by the
legislatures of the several states as provided by the constitution
within seven years of the (late of submission hereof to the
states by congress."
This is tihe amendment adopted by congress Dec. 18, 1917,
and ratifiedI by 36 states a little more than one year later.
And here are some of the things that the amendment will do:
