'ihe title of the following song, The Internationale, is frequently men
tioned in Associated Press dispatches and special articles originating in
Europe published in the capitalist press, but the words are seldom
printed. Here they are:
(fy Eugene Pottier-Translation by Charles H. Kerr.)
Arise, ye prisoners of starvation!
Arise, ye wretched of the earth!
For Justice thunders condemnation,
A better world's in birth.
No more tradition's chains shall bind us;
Arise, ye slaves, no more in thrall!
The earth shall rise on new foundations,
We have been naught--we shall be all.
'Tis the final conflict,
Let, each stand in his place;
The Industrial Union
Shall be the human race.
We want no condescending saviors
To rule us from a judgment hall;
We workers ask not for their favors,
Let us consult for, all.
To make the thief disgorge his booty,
To free the spirit from its cell,
We must ourselves decide our duty
We must decide, and do it well.
The law oppresses us and tricks us,
Wage systeins drain our blood;
The rich are free from obligations,
The. laws the poor delude.
Too long we've languished in subjection,
Equality has other laws;
"No rights," says she, "without their duties,
No claimnms on equals without cause."
Behold them, seated in their glory,
The kings of mine and rail and soil!
What have you read in all their story
But how they plundered toil?
Fruits of the workers' toil are buried
In the strong coffers of a few;
In working for their restitution
The men will only ask their due.
Toilers from shops and fields united,
The union, we, of all who work,
The earth belongs to us, the workers-
No room here for the shirk.
HIow many on our flesh have fattened!
ullit if the noisome birds of prey
Shall vanish fromu the sky some morning
The blessed sunlight still will stay!

Those who lore the stuli e deal
,will find an olpportunity for a good
chluckle in the "sad" plight of a
butte (Mont.) sheriff. This arm of
the law, together with several other:
who claimed to be moved by the pur
est patriotis;n, dragged a citizen from
his bted at night and threw hibn into
jail on a trumped-up " disloyalty
charge. It seems the citizen had ap
pcarled before ihe draft bIoard in be- b
half of two Swedish citizens whol
were by treaty exempted from the P
draft and that lie had a job which 0
on11e of the "patriots" also wanted. t
The arrest gave the Butte ilinei i
and other papers a chance to show I
their loyalty by condemning the citi
zen before lie was tried, in scurf ilou, C
accounts. But the victim of official c
oppression did not take the patriotic 1.
game kindly. He had the nerve te
bring suit for $20,000 damnagec
against the Butte Miner, the sherifl
and others concerned.
Seeing the turn affairs were taking
and knowing the lack of any excuse
for their act, the "patriots ' decided
to try to settle out of court. But the
citizen's heart was hard. He refused
anything less than $4,500 and some
salt to rub it in. The salt was a pub
lie apology by the sheriff, played up
as prominently as the disgusting
story of his arrest. And he got it.

a great mass of humanity looking

a voice cries from the mass, "Give

Perhaps no phrase can express tih
intense feeling and the hope that sup

than that. The people who got fat
on war profits and the people who
live easily in no danger of the povel

sacrifice made the burden easier, but
now flesh and blood cry out against

shoddy clothes, the cramped living
