LINCOLN AND CAPITAL.
Now there is no such relation between capital and labor as
ass.umed. Labor is prior to and independent of capital.
('apital is only the fruit of labor, could never have existed if labor
had not lirst existed. Labor is the superior of capital and deserves

The republican county central
committee represented by William
Carroll, complained of the lack of
republican judges and clerks of elec
tion placed on the list recently adopt
ed by the council. The application
apparently came too late and it was
explained that there had been no rep
resentation from any local party to
the extent that would warrant the
naming of judges and clerks other
than those given recognation. How
ever, the council agreed in giving the
republicans a chance on the list and
the matter was referred to the spe
cial committee appointed some timc
ago. It was brought out that due no
tice had been given all parties inter
ested, but the representatives of the
republican party had failed to appear
in time and had therefore not been

The city council, which long has
been considering the advisability of
increasing the licenses of intelligence
offices, last night passed an ordi
nance to the effect that hereafter the
licenses will be raised from $100 to
$400 a year.
While there was some protest on
the part of the Dillman interests as to
the proposed creation of an alley run
ning from Dakota street west to Mon
tana street, between Gilena and Park
streets, the council voted the int
provement measure. The estimated
cost is $12,508. Otier improvemeixt
district measures included the con
sideration of the paving of West
Granite street from Montana to Em
mett streets and the lighting of the
same street within the district. The
date for filing protests to the creation
of the district was set for March 10.

James Smith was confirmed as
captain in the fire department to suc

has been a member of the depart
ment and who from physical inability
has had to retire and who was grant
ed the usual pension last night by a
unanimous vote of the council.
The matter. of encroachments on
South Arizona street by owners of
raised sidewalks, was brought up by
Alderman Austin and referred to the
city engineer. Alderman Austin also
brought up the oft repeated question
of the overflowing of Silver Bow
creelk during the spring and this was
also left with the city engineer and
Mr. Austin claimed there was some
shortweight coal being delivered and
he was informed by the mayor that
while the matter would be looked in
to, it should not be presented in such
a form as too much publicity would
give an opportunity for the dealer, if
he were crooked, to adjust himself
for a few days to the order.

IS THIS UNIONISM?
Written for the Butte l)aily Bulletin
By HAROLD LORD VARNEY
No union has ever yet beeti defeated by the boss. Every
lost strike of lobor has been lost by labor's own mistakes.
\When labor and capital meet inl conflict. labor always has
the advantage. Wiheni it presses that advantage it wiins; cap
ital is ro, ted. But when, as iii ,our ireeit strike in Butle,
labor Ibrows away the very powers which make it invincible,
dlefeat cones and capital becomes the master.
Eve'ry strike----every labor struggle--is a contest in organ
ization. Thit e organized bosses pit thlieir strengtih against the
organllized \\workers. l'iUionized capital battles unionized labor.
It is solidarity against solidarity.
Thiis strikes are matthematical. Labor leaders must study
the situation as generals strategize prospective batttles. They
must estimnate the power' f lthe bosses. Theo they must ilt
tensify the power of the it ii ols llutil the bosses are overt opped.
Arid since labor holds lhe strategic piosition itn industry. the
.treingth of the capitalist c(:a always be surpassed.
And this leads us to the point.
The ortm tof unioutism is not to be determnitred by theories or
by philosophies. The for.nm of unionism timust be shaped in
every industry by Ilie forl m or capital. The boss masses his
resources in a certain I'tr of or 'ganizalion. \Wh.n labor or
ganizes to utlack hli m, labor inust mi ubilize ITS resources in
the samte inevitable form.
T'o spec ify: We have here in Iullte an A. t. M. .For year's

by guile or by migih, the A. I; . M. hs been the conqueror. It
has defeatedl the miti.ers: it hIts defeated the engineers; it has
defeated tile electrician s: it has detealed the machinttists; it
has defeated thlie iboi ilecr makers: it has de teated the stluctural
