Chicago. - While England an(
Canada have liberated their con
scientious objectors, the United
States, still living in the darkest ages
is ill treating hers afresh.
On Aug. 18, over 100 of the abso
lutist "C. O.'s" were ordered to dc
military work by Colonel Byram.
commandant at Fort Douglas. Utah.
They had been working ever since
they arrived et the fort. looking after
themselves and their quarters, but as
absolutists they could do no no more.
They have proven the sincerity of
their conscientious objections to
such work through a fear of torture
and suffering, so that the authori
ties knew before giving the order
the boys must refuse.
No attention was paid to their pro
test, and upon their refusing to do
military work, they were put in a
compound on bread and water (mur
derers get better treatment). The
commandent threatens to hold them
thus indefinitely, not allowing them
to write or see people, even after
their sentences have expired. Three
of the boys were to have been re
leased on the twentieth, but they are
held with the rest. Some of these
boys are in very poor physical condi
tion, due to their ill treatment by the
military, and this bread and water
diet places their lives in jeopardy.
And all this goes on in a nation
whose constitution guarantees free
dom of conscience!
('o-olperalive Theaters Laulnched.
New York.-One of the most im
portant developments of the strike
of the Actors' Equity association is
the opening of a number of co-opera
tively owned and operated theaters
in New York city. Since Aug. 18,
the striking actors have nightly given
an all-star performance at the Lex
ington theater, leased and operated
by themselves. A crowded house
greets each perforinance, and large
collections are taken `up at the endl
of the performances to help thie
The success of this first undertak
ag has been so marked that the Ac

nittee for looking into the possibili
.ies of a national chain of co-opera
ive theaters, owned and managed by
he actors themselves for their mut
ial benefit. Besides the, Lexington.

Laken over, as have also three other
downtown theaters, and Convention,
H-all, Saratoga, N. Y., has been en
gaged for a "one-night. stand." Also
the Academy of Music, Brooklyn, and
the Auditorium theater, Chicago,
have been leased by the strikers.
Only two of the large play llounses
in New York city are running their
tightly programs. All the ol1ers are
lark, for the stage hands and iusi-'
.'ians refuse to work in houses in
which scab) actors are employed.
There was somie speculation as to
the stand that Samuel GomIlpers
would take upon his return It ()llm
Europe. But his endorsement of the
strike has shown the producers that
the whole strength of the A. F. of
L. will be put behind their demands
for fair play.
How terrified the producers are
is apparent from the fact that George
M1. Colian, manager and actor, has
started a rival organization, called
the Actors' Fidelity league, in the
hope of thus breaking the strike. The
contract lie and his organization of
fer to managers includes pracltically
all the demands of the Actors' Equity
except the crucial one of recognition
of the actors' union.

TI an h Cue
Significance of Labor Day 1919
By JIULIUS DEUTELBAUM,
Editor, Detroit Labor News.
Perhaps thle Iost hopeful sign and
greatest achievement of the past
year to be recorded on this Labor day
is the ever decreasing confidence of
lie rank and file in tiose of the in
trnatlional officers who arbitrarily
;et policies which are not in conform
ity with the will and the wishes, and
ftlenm out of keeping with the inter
'sts of the rank and file, and the
orl'esponding increased confidence
they place in thenselves, coupled
with the recognition of the great
power that lies in thliir own hands
tand the keecn determination to carry
on their ow n work lo the best of
their it ndeirstanldilig irrespective ci'
the maniidates of thle higher-ups.
Winht i consider the greatest step
StlhI li tC of the A..lnericaln labor
miovement, is the determined effort
on the part of the rank and file to
discard the old shibboleth of a "fair
hays pay for a fair day's work" and
illn its place inscribe across their ban
nters the words 'industrial democ
racy." Altbor no longer desires moire
ly a wage to keep it in tolerable coin
fort and de,'ency, but is bent upon
winning tihe right to a voice in the
managemenult of the affairs in which
heir lives are involved.
The progressive element is grow
ing and miauking progress in every
rcommunnity and they are the nucleus
of a formidable opposition that is
thlralentinug tie royal hierachy seated
.t Washington with Samuel Gompers
as the high ln lest of reaction.
There is hardly a community to
:ay "'where the labor movement is
regulsar" and the officers of the
Amlerican Federation of Labor who
lave lolng ceased to be leaders of la-.
lor', are now proving themlselves to
be even poor followers of the rank
andl file. The membership of the
A\lerican Federation of Labor is
twakeHning to the realization of the,
potentiai possibilities that lie before
hlieim and are made iulpossible of ac
'o1mplishtlent because of tile reac
tionary policies pursued by so-called
leaders to whoii the plaudits of the
prostituted press and the master
:lass sound sweeter than the praises
of their own constituents.

Another great significance of La
bor day this year is, that it is being
observed ill but very few localities,
not bccausll there is no desire for
Labor to holdt uo!lnuntion in the va
rious industrial centers, but rather
because of the hostile attitude of the

It has truly been said that the
worst fault of blind followers is that
they create a demand for blind l tad
irs. andt it is now equally true that an
'ntelligenti, awakened rank and file
demands intelligent leadership, signs
of which none of the holy family now\
gathered aroundllt the throne of Sanm
uel Golmpers have betrayed within.
the past year.
Labor's hope lies in what it will
accomplish for itself and not what
tile men at tile top can get for them
by vote-swapping arrangelents.
These things cannot be enduring and
never have been.
The great significance of Labor
day. 19111, is. that the workers are
beginnliilg to think for themselves in
such numbers that the stand-patters
are worried over the result. Rec:'
tionary leadership will have to give
way to mien of sylmipathy. understanid

the interests of labor. The days

ahead of us are pregnant with pos
sibilities and we have good reason to
be hopeful and cheerful, having these
prospects in mind.
Labor's aim for 1920 is to preserve
what, it has achieved, to improve so
cial conditions, to increase the share
of the fruits of its own labor, to
educate itself to the steadily grow
ing responsibilities of modern life,
and to make the material, intellec
tual and moral interests of the work
ing class the paramount interests in
NOT PAID HIGH WAGE
Washington.- -The claim that rail
road employes receive high wages. so
persistently urged by the public
press, is not supported in the report
of a railroad wage coulmission, made
last year. The chairman of this corn
mission was Hon. Franklin K. Lane,
secretary of the interior.
The commlllission said:
"It has been a somewhat popular
impression that railroad employes
were njtoug the most highly paid
workers. butt figures gathered from
the railroads disposed of this belief.
Fifty-one per cent of all the employes
during December, 1917, received $75
per month or less, and 80 per cent
received $100 per month or less.
'll"n a8mong the locomotive engineers
commonly spoken of as highly paid,
a trioettouderat1ng numlber receives
less than $170 per month. and this
ioupcllensation they have attained by
the most comnpact and complete or
ganization, handled with a full ap
:prec'iation of all strategic values.

$l150 to $250 per month there is in

employeis (excluding officials) anti

of $,100 or less. In 1917 the average
pay of this class was but $56.77 pet

rk- for the Workers in More
i Than 40 States.
New York, Sept. 4.--Protective la
bor standards in the first year after
the armistice have made substantial
progress in new legislation providing
[ still further safeguards for workers
and strengthening existing statutes,
particularly in the field of social in
surance, according to the summary 3
of labor laws enacted during 1919 in
so mnore than 40 states and by congress
lic just issued by the American Associ

Several notable changes were mad
in hour laws; particularly the enaci
