WITH THE EDITORS
SA cablle from Paris states Ihat the
comniission on international labor
legislation has held its last meeting
and will adjourn. This body was
made up of appointees of the diplo
mats and consisted of the most con
setr\vative leaders in the uinions of the
various countries. Mr. Gompers head
ink it as chairman as the most con
s.rvative of all.
For several weeks it was reported
tha;t these men were to work out a
general international labor code to be
embnodiedtl in the peace treaty. M1r.
Gomn pers himself had presented this
idea to the inter-allied conference in
iLonidon last year and at the Pan
Anmerican conference at Laredo las'
November. It was to be the big con
cession that the labor leaders wont
going to wring front the diplomats it
Paris. We never have been enthusi
astic about this for two reasons
First, because the demands conling
fromn such a source were not likely t(
cause any profound comment, and
second, because, if anything worth
while were to slip Ithrough, the fact
that it was intrusted to the existing
governments to enlforce would render
it an abortion.
HIowever, the comlnmission gave thu
final touch to the farce and saved thb
diplomnats the job. For this the lat
ter will he duly grateful. It provid
ed for "the establishment of a perma
nent organization for internationa
labor legislation." The cable tell:
the rest of the story:
The American contention that each
country should settle its internation
al problems without invoking the
power of the league of nations pre
This is as it should be, but in the
hands of these leaders it means tak
ing these matters out of the hands of
diplomats and cabinet ministers and
placing them back into the hands of
the capitalist palties which these
leaders have faithfully supported in
each country. It is a return to the
past, with no change whatever. "Loy
al" labor gets a bag emptied of wind
a fter much strutting about in the Eu
ropeanl press. The diplomats and
politicians are satisfied, including the
"labor" men who are responsible for
this abortion. But what of the work
ing class who have trusted these gen
tlemten and their policies? -- New

In the Miner of April 1, the "pay
triotic" editor of the paper falls be
low the level of a Liverpool fish
woman (and that is going some)
and calls Debs all the vile names in
his vocabulary, and asks what has
I)l s ever done?
.)Debs has done more for the ben
efit, for the emancipation of the
toilers, in one night, than the "pay
triotic" editor's master with his
$100,000,000 has done in a life
time of over three score and 10
years, and did it gladly, freely and
willingly with no motive other than
that he felt it his duty.
The editor of the "Whiner" is
right for once; there is, anarchy;
there is lawlessness in the land, rob
bery, murder, slavery, class antago
nism, stealing elections, tax dodg
ing, even the miners working for a
small wage, hide their few valuables
when the assessor is expected.
The editor of the "Whiner" is to
be blamed for much of the condi
tion of affairs as they now are in the
city of Butte; he does not know the
meaning of being "fair and square;"
by distorting the truth; by his advo
vation of violence to any and all who
differ with him in any way; by his
open defiance to all right and jus
tice; he is but feeding the flames
that sooner or later will burn him.
"On what meat hath this Caeser
fed that he has grown so great?"
Debs is mentally and morally the
superior of both the editor and the
owner of the "Whiner," which is
only a villainous, lying sheet, dubbed
a '"newspaper," and run for the fun
of the thing and incidentally (who
knows) it might come in handy
again for senatorial purposes.
The editor, it seems, wishes to in
dulge in personalities; if that be the
case, I would ask him to go back 35
years and without covering up or
suffering a lapse of memory (that
often happens to editors) in his
master's life, write the same "truth
fully" for public perusal and the
l)ecameron will look like a Peruna
almanac when compared to, it.
His master is credited with being
worth $100,000,000 and he needs
all that. It will take even more
than twice that sum to gloss over
some things that we old timers
know. All .the money in the universe
will not wipe out sonme recollections.
Debs has not 100,000,000 cents
but Debs is " all man."
Debs is "all man"-something the
editor of the Whiner will never be,
for nature made one mistake in his
construction and it can never be rec
We must admit that the editor's
master was and is "paytrictic." He
proved it when the government
needed every pound of copper it
could get and the "rapacious, profi
teering" miner asked two bits a day
more in wages, this "loyal and pay
triotic and generous" master said:
"I'll flood my mines and never hoist
another pound of ore before I will
give them what they ask."
You disgraceful, disloyal wobblies
and socialists, you Nonpartisan
t league disrupters of the order of
things as ordained of God, and sane
i tioned by the A. C. M., your ideas of
r what a real patriot is are all wrong.
e The editor calls the "real man,
Debs" an egotist. That is the most
unkind cut of all. There is not a
bit of egotism in the makeup of
G ene Debs. he is too much man, too
hiuman. Both the editor and hisl
master have taken the lion's share
of that attribute, and both Debs and
Dunn will have to go without. If
the editor were half the man that
eithler of these two men are, thlen
egotism on the part of the cringing
and fawning sycophant for prefer
ment editor could be overlooked and
This "law-loving editor" prates of
law and order. When master and
slave owner and editor use the terms
law and order, what do they mean?
The law and order that, taxes
Mickey Flinn $50 a year tax on a
Sshack and a two by two piece of
ground that he earned at $3.50 a
shift, worth $600, and taxes the
master $500 for a $6,000,000 mine?
"Consistency, thou are a jewel."
N. B.-The editor don't wear jew
The slave of his master calls Debs
a red parasite; that is the way a real
gentleman always expresses himself;
noes so when his adversary is judged
guilty of an offense and cannot an
swer; that is his idea of honor, an
attribute that he would have as
much use for as a cow would have
for a parasol, and never having hac
any, does not miss it, but if lies
vituperation, language that would
be in good form in the five dial dis
trict were inoney, this "paytriotic'
and honorable editor would be as
wealthy as his millionaire "master.'
This slave says Debs never per
formed one useful act in all his life

it and we all know his generosity.
Debs gave of the charity that is not
counted in dollars and dimes; he
gave of his life freely and gladly
with no thought of what he would
get in return.
I know this is all Greek to you,
fur in your infinitesimally small
way you cannot conceive what a real
man means; hut what did you ever
The man with the tin dinner pail
who went down in the mines and,
with pick and shovel, swelled your
master's wealth, is the man who
made Butte; is the man who indi
rectly fed and cljthed and likewise
sheltered you, for had not he and
countless others bought and read
your vile and lying sheet that you
edit, you would be elsewhere spread

nothing for the welfare of Butte-

imagination of either a fool or
a knave-in your case a clear case
of a c'ombination of both.
True, the supreme court can deny
Debs a new trial; their decision may
be final, but there is a greater and
higher court, and let me ask you,
are yot? willingly blind? Do you not

Never forget "whom the gods seek
to destroy, they first make mad."
Are you drunk with imaginary pow
er? If there be one thing under the
sun that you do not deem yourself

question that you cannot settle off

your ultimatum, will you tell us
what it is
One great truth is known, all over
the world is the spirit of unrest. No
one can rightly tell what the next
day may bring forth. It may be revo
lution or rebellion, instead of fac
ing the matter fairly and squarely,
and advocating measures that would
perhaps overcome existing condi
tions, you aggravate them and what
can you hope to win-political pre
ferment? Slave, when your master
can no longer use you, he will turn
you out, you have served your pur
pose-make rootm for another sub
serviant. cringing coward, who looks
like a man, but is devoid of principle
and honor. I would rather rot in
jail a man, than prostitute my man-'
hood for the smile and adulation of
some rich master-get me?
History repeats itself, it has ever
done so. Are you blind to the con
