Socialist, unida or scab, drop your
preconceived ideas and pet hobbies,
and hink one honest thought and do
one beroic deed for humanity's sake.
Come out in the open and abso
lutely refuse to work longer for your
masters. Do this-peaceably, calmly,
lawfully. A Declaration of Industrial
Independence by the common people,
would restore to them their birth
right and forever put to flight the
demon of greed and oppression. Let
the wheels of commerce stop the
graneries are full. Let the shops
close our soil is still fertile. Let
the mouey kings jingle their gold and
threaten the mines are yet produc
tive. Every man, woman and child
is entitled to the full measure of his
or her production; right is might and
man can free himself from indus
trial servitude in one single month if
he would. Dare you do this thing',
you who toil and delve in abject slav
ery for the masters? Dare you?
Does Humanity-Day mean any
thing to you? Dare you all join
a single thought and that thoughts
liberty, now and forever1?
If so, let us organize Humanity
Day league and mean business? Who
will be first? & F. Cleveland.

NO WAR FOR HIM. T. H. C. use's
the words of Thos. Paine, "The world'
is my country, to do good is my relig- '
ion." After the last election the of-
ficial count of the ballots showed that
one million voters had shown their
intelligence in voting for just such a '
a slogan in no other way than voting '
the Socialist ticket. Now, if all in
dividuals who believe in the words of '
Thomas Paine would boost interna
itonal socialism we could have one
Gor, one country, one flag and one '
people in five years. Now, Mr. T.-H.
C, what other meaning has the red
flag than international socialism?

THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES.
If there is a class of Tvoman.in this
city that the moral laws ought to be
applied to it is the woman who has
forfeited all claim to the name she
bears by leaving her husband.
She cannot obtain a divorce from
him for obvious reasons, and she
takes three or four children and
starts living year after 'year with
some lazy, worthless man, a boarder
and roomer, who does not work half
These' brazen-faced imposters are

"JOKERS." I have been reading
your Day Book since the first issue
rand occasionally I read attacks on the
gas, electric, leiepuuue auu sueeu car
trusts. The last few days, the street
car trusts have been attacked by t&'e
state's attorneys office and also by
yourself. The fact Ss, that the street
car trust is not to blame as the ha-(
ture of a trust is hunger for motfey
and their only object is to get it no
matter in what way. The one to be
blamed for all these things is the
Honorable Mayor Harrison, who
signed franchises full of "jokers."'
The "jokers" in the franchises were'
not put there to blind the mayor.
They were put there to blind the peo
ple and some of theionest aldermen
If the mayor could not discover the
"jokers" himself he has a corporation
counsel and skilled attorneys who
could point them out to him. It 'is
hardly possible for a few to slip a'ny

over two million people five times.
I noticed "safety first" in large let
