"The distinguished Mr. Kolchak, of Russia, appears
finally to have reached the end of his little rope. The
United States and some other governments stupidly trying I
to force on Russia a hand-picked reactionary ruler have
i perhaps learned a lesson. Nobody in the United States
government is in any way equipped to select rulers or make
laws for nations across the water. Two hundred million
Russians will decide what they want to do without help
from us. The sooner the people of this country instruct
i their official employes to mind the business of this country,
the better it will be for the United States.-Washington

An inspired ray of hope floods the
hearts of those behind the prison
walls to observe the onward march of
labor and feel the heel of the op
pressor lifting in their helplessness.
That penitentiaries exist, is but
conclusive proof that the status of
our social life is wrong. The so
called criminal that has increased in
alariling numbers, in the majority
of casds are simply those who have
rebelled against the crushing
wheels of capitalism.
Deep scars have been rifted in the
flanks of labor' by the persecution of
individuals compelled by adverse cir
cumstance to drift into the lines of
least resistance. War, the great edu
cator, has disclosed many things.
Among these are, that Americans
have been awakened to the truth,
that living in America does not con
stitute freedom, that the laws of our
land are a contemptible mockery,
and that democracy is not to be[
found on the blood-washed fields of
France, but can only be` gained
through the sacrifice of life and lib
erty as portrayed by the indomitable
leaders of labor, many of whom are
now languishing in prison for speak
ing the truth in a free speaking
Stripped to its bare skeleton, cap
italism stands forth in all its hideous
nakedness, an enemy to the mass, yet
we find those who will bow in fawn
int subservience to the masters.
The most servile acquiescence and
puppetry wll not long survive on the
facile platitudes that prostitttte the
columns of kept press and emanate
vociferously from the mouths of paid
mercenaries. The shafts of ridicule
so mercilessly directed at the convict
by the representatives of our mosaic
laws, are slowly being recognized as:
the weapon with which these peni
tentiary agents are able to give the
popular conception to the public, that
this detached segment of humanity is
but degenerated refuse, to be sorted
as the coal from the slag. Just so
long as mass bows to class will this
condition exist, and in casting off
the fetters of monopoly labor will
free itself from danger of the ever,
yawning prison doors. As we write
these lines, we are within the monu
mental portals, erected by and dedi
cated to our ignorance. We are
here, not because we are criminals,
but because we have rebelled against
the revolting conditions outside and
capital has with the help of our ig

I Today We Celebrate i
Compilation of the Koran.
Said Milton, "A good book is the.
-precious lifeblood of a master spirit,
I treasured up on purpose to a life
beyond a life." The sacred books of
the world are these: The Bible,. the
Koran, the Rig-Veda. (the entire body
of India's sacred lore), and the Law
of Confucius. The Book of the Dead
of the acient. Egyptians was a collec
tion of prayers and hymns for the
passage of the soul to Amenti, the
land of the dead. On. Aug..23, 634
5 A. D., Abu Bekr died. He Was Mo
nhammed's father-in-law, and the first
Caliph or successor to Mohammed in
the government of the faithful. In
his short reign of only two years, he
caused the precepts of the Prophet
Mlohammed to be collected in a vol
ume. called "Al Koran," which is
the sacred and classical book of all
Islam. It is written in the Arabic
language. The word "Koran" is de
rived from the Arabic "Kara." which
occurs at the commencement of the
95th surall or chapter, said to be
the first chapter revealed to Moham
med; it has the meaning of the words
"the reading." Mohammed claimed
that its contents were revealed to
him by the Angel Gabriel, and the
revelation conimunicated in dreams,
whereafter he secluded himself in a
cave in Mount Hira, and worshipped
there day and night. Each surah of
the Koran begins with invocation, I
"In the Name of God, the Merciful,
the Compassionate." One of the best
verses in the entire book, and con
nected with Islam's Law of Almsgiv
ing, is the following: "One deed of
kindness to thy neighbor is worth'
forty months of prayer." The prayeri
for the guidance or protection of God
in the first surah, is one of the most
profoundly touching bits of religious
supplication in the whole system of
The Koran undoubtedly borrowed
a gread deal from the Hebrew Tal
mud and the Bible. Mohammed was
born in 571 A. I). The flight of Mo
hammed (the Hegira) from Mecca to
Medina to escape from his enemies
is the date on which Islam bases lhe
comemncement of its era, called 1
A. H. This occurred in 622 of our
era, Anno Domini.
Willilam Wallace, Scottish Hero.
The old songs are the great songs.
*"Scots, wha hae wi Wallace Bled."
vwhich was Bruce's address to his
army at Bannockburn, 1314, has
come down the centuries. It is death- t
less as the instinct for freedom in I
the human breast. The' national hero f
of Scotland, William Wallace. was t
horn in 1270. This was at the end o
of the turbulent thirteenth century, i
when a dark star, Edward I. of Eng- b
land, blazed warningly into history; a
There was no heir to the. Scottish j
throne in the direct line of ..see s
sion. At this period there arose, a g
hero to fight the battle Of.suffering, a
freedom and natiotial independence. 0
Scotland had rebelled against Eng- 1
lish oppression. William Wallace,
the young knight of Ellerslie; as his
tory loves to call him, gathered
around him in the wild highlands of
Scotland a hand of desperately noble
men, destined to do or die. The in
surrection grew. Wallace was soonl
at the head of alarge army. By ex
t raordinary rapid marches he reached
Stirling and attacked the English en
camped at the Abbey Craig. On this
bridge there stands today the na
tional monument to the memory of
Wallace. The' English commander
began tI cross the bridge. Wallace
waited till half of the army had
crossed, and then attacked with such
fury that almost all the English were
slain or driven into the river. Like
a Highland storm, Wallace raged as
far as Berwick, with the result that
the enemy were driven from Scot
land,-nay, he pursued the English
to the gates of Newcastle, devastat
ing the country. Upon his return
home he was made guardian of the
kingdom, and secured order by wis
dom and vigor.' Edward I. of Eng
land, the "Hammerer of the Scots,"
was in Flanders when the disastrous
'news of his army's defeat reached
him. He hastened home, and at the
head of a large force, elitered Scol
land in 1298. Wallace's only safety
Swas in falling back before the Eng
lish, and wasting the country. But
Edward brought him to ,bittle at
Falkirk. The Scots were defeated
with heavy loss. With a remnant of
his forces, Wallace found refuge in
the mountains • (his den is still
shown). He was capturled through
the treachery of Sajealomls nible, and
, carried before Edward. The king
ordered him to be taken in fetters
to London, where lie was exhibited
for days in'a cage, erected on a tall
building, subjected to the jeers of
the mobs. Thereupon he was put to
She torture In the Tower of London,
with every cruelty of. the Norman
law. He was beheaded' on Tower
hill, and his bleeding head set upon
,,a spike on Londoni bridge, as was
.tlhe sinister custom of the age. Iis
answer to Edward I. at .Westminster
savors of the sublime: "You accuse
me of being a traitor to .England. I
could not bea traitor, 'for I never was
Syour subject, and never swore fealty
_ to you."
He died for Scotland and liberty at
the age of 35. IIe had inspired his
I countrymen with a spirit that burned
triumphantly at Bannockburn, 'in
1314, where King Robert Bruce de
Sfeated Edward II.,. who carried the
i bones of Edward I, before his great.
iarmy, and freed Scotland.

nobles once prominent in English

I ham, created duke by Oharles I,
with whom he had been a favorite
and who made him prime minister,
