THAT "ALIE N" RUBBISH.
As was to be expeoted, the masters and tlihose made stuipid by
their teachings are groani ng out Ilie same oldi argumetiiis, on0e
being that "tlihe strike is ilioplolrttlune.'
In the first place we would like to know whelin it becanie
opportunlie atd tol the best interests of Ithe workinig lass io
accept a redulctila of wages?
Resistance to the encroiclimeitis of caplitlal is absolutely
necessary, in fact a class that woull iinot resist would be spine
less, and in the wlordls of Marx, " 'WO L) BE I)E(IRADID TO
ONE LEVEL MASS ()i' BROKEN WRIETCHES PAST SAL
The maximum of prolfits is based upon the longest hours
and lowest wages lphysically possible l'r Ihle working class to
survive on in order to Iroduce surplus value. This conditionl
is the heaven and constant goal of the capitalist class.
The Anaconda Copper Mining comi)pa ny is trying to rednuce
the wages of the workers in order to make greater pri ilIs, and
the workers, in resisting this greed for more profits, did the
only intelligent tlii g possible.
According to the moutlhpieces of 1Ihe master class, it is never
opportune for the workers to uiite atnd light agaillst organized
capital. During the war they said "wait uitil after the war"'
nIow the \war is over they say "wait ullntil autilumn: if autumn,
\\ait until winter." If it. is snowing, wait until the flowers
grow. Always and ever do nothiing todlay, but wait untlil to
llorrow, alld tomorrow\ never co(ieics.
Wiheil the miiuiers or workers have from tine io tintme asked
for all increase of wages or a dlecrease in hours 1)11) THE
COPPER COMPANY say thlat it as\\ inopportuneliii to refuise?
NO. IT IS ALWAYS OPPI)RTI NE FOll T11,EM TO IlEFUSE
and reduce if they can. \WhIul will the mouthpieces olf tlie
copper kings say if thle workers delnliliiid sliht'lor Illllhrs ill order(
to telmporarily aloviate lenimplliIytienit ianid redi e lihe Iprolits
of the octopus? Will they say "il's winter. Itherefore grant
the decrease in houirs, the wolrkers ican thill hliave iiore time
for education, e'ultiulre anitdi pleasure"' ? NoI, they will bawl
"Agitators," "Aliens," elc.
It is not only always Ilortlulne tol resist a decriease in wages,
but such opposition is essential if Ilie working class is ever to
be free fromi wage slavery.
Another cry is that, "Alielis are in thiis stike."' This is for
the purpose of inciting niational hatred, to keep lthe workers
•divided. To get them fightinlg among themselves whilst the
companiy comes in antid robs tllhei of the dollar decrease.
When capital meets labor it ildoes not care whalit color, race
sex or creed it is. All that it is conceriied in IS PIRFIT'LS.
Who was it that went downi inlto the "hot-boxes" and faced
death? Who was it that toiled and sweated inl order to make
that $82,000,000 for the companiy durinlg the war? Who was
it that piled up that 1,000,00,000 polluiids of copper thlat the
company now has on hand? Why, the workers-the Fiins,
the Swedes, tIe Aniericans, the French, the British, the Rus
sians-toilers from all lands aiid climes. The master class

When did capital know any country? We would like to know.
From its inception it went wherever the robbing was good,
and in its youth it murdered, plundered, and spilled blood
broadcast in its desire to exploit and pile up plunder, and in its
old age does the same, only more terrific.
Capital is international; it knows no national litres: it will
rob ini Ch(ristian America as it will in heathen Chia: it will
exploit native born as greedily as those from Finilad; it will
thieve from children, let alone women; it cares not whether the
victims are white, black, yellow or red. The patriotism, tihe
cthics, tie morality, the religion, of capital can be summed
iur in one word-)PROFITS
Who are the stockholders and tihe coupon clippers in the
\VWho are they who shared in the $82,000,000? Where
were they born? Where are they now? What nationality
WIHY, EVERY NATIONALITY.
To talk of aliens; what nationality is Oscat Rohn? Whcre
dlid his synmpathries lean during tihe war? *
There is no doubt, that Germans, Austrians, llulgarians, let
alone othelrs, draw dividends from this company, and therefore,
in logic, why shouldn't t le workers reply that enemy aliens
are plIundering the workers of Bulte and trying to say "how
this country shall he ruiin." Just as logical, in fact, more so.
The working class is internatioral. The capitalist class is
intiernational, and notlhing cotuld he a finer demonstration of
this than the luissian aid G(erimar revolutions. It was all
right to overthrow so-ialled autocra(cy. but when the woi'kers
started to take over the indutstries, which they made possible,
the capitalists of ALL COUNTRIES shrieked curses and united
in a conmmoun body to crush them.
The alien cry is ani old ,one, as old as tihe law aml order slo
gau. The masters tanllnolt think of anythiig new and therefore
wilih every strike "the hash is rehashed."
Tihe workers mustl pay the same attentionr to this national
cry as the soldiers and sailors paid to the oratory of the law
yers yesterday aftlernoo., , when they strove to stop them fronm
enidorsirg the strike. They laiughed, and weint on record stand
ii g by their striking brothers by a two-to-one vote, and this
is what we as a class must do; laugh them to scorn and con
Iiirue on our road.
THEil ONLY ALIENS IN THIS WO\V(RIA) ARE THOSE WH\VIIO
LIVIE ON TlE S\VEAT AN ) TI) t L OF THE \VOIIKING CLASS.
Thie capitalists are absolutely unplrod utive antd therefore they
are tlhe only foreigners andl. tihe only ones that th.e future will
recognilize as such.

The labor movement in the Unit

secure halls for its meetings; hun
dreds of its speakers are in jail: its
papers are denied the mails; its

are reduced to silence by the mas
