the democratic system should wel
come French rule" with open arms
and rejoice at getting rid of mon
archy -with its privilege, arrogance
and enormous cost for compensa
tion. It is clear that in this country the
different sections might now be at
fierce "war with each other except for
the sanity of our democratic system
of organization which reduces going
to war over boundary lines to an ab
surdity, and the same course of rea
soning shows conclusively that there
can be no permanent cure for the
present war except by the organiza
tion, of "The United States of Eu
rope." Parker H. Sercombe.
A STEDMAN BOOSTER. The
words, "Union Men, Attention," and
the question of Mr. Lipsitz, "Why not
have the presidents of the unions call
a convention to select the best union
man for mayor," made me sit up and
take notice this evening.
My answer is because it would no
be possible to select a better union
man for mayor than the Socialists
have already selected Seymour
I have known him for twenty
years. He is honest, brave, and a
I do not see why any union man
shouldn't vote for him. He is for the
Working people first, last and all the
time. He knows their needs better
than the other candidates and will do
more for the working men and wom
en than all the other candidates to
gether. The 'Socialists and union men can
- elect Stedman if they want to.
TIRED. When I called the atten
tion of "Aristocrat" to the request
that I deal with the .Cuthbert com
plaint he said he had forgotten about
it, and was too tired to loo"k it up.
"You do it, old boy," said he. "You
may as well begin to qualify." I late
ly inhewited a railroad, you kneow,
and am twylng to be as near Iie
Aristocrat as I can by watching him.
I 'have the leisure and the income
neow, bah Jove, and am working on
Oh, I see neow, it was about crowd
ing street cars. Well, if there is
money in the straps, there is more in,
the standers who cannot reach the
straps, which they do not need, for
they hold each other up. Really, this
is the latest in co-operation, and
ought to suit socialists. Think how
the passengers would bump each oth
er, only they are in so tight. Aw1
weally could not think of calling
around every evening for the lady;
think of the scandal; and such char
ity always pauperizes the recipients,
as I heard a man say. Beats all how
easy it is to take a big income after"
working for a small one so lon.
It seems they just make us aristd
crats take the money. It pours in;
how can we help it? Cwowdihg the"
cars is onlv one way. Rents from.
,egregated district was another:
and wnile tnat seems to De cnecKea,
it is easy enough to catch the coin
buying in other districts. Don't
blame us uppefclass too much. Ther
only way we could restore our plun--der
would be to throw it on the
walks; but would the right ones get
it? Aristocrat II.
DAY BOOK CONTRIBUTORS.--?
am simply amazed by the extraordi
nary letters you get from men, and,
maybe women, who are not schooled,
but are "educated." You have opened'
a mine of golden words of men who
can't say "In the last analysis," but
who can give you the last analysis"
with a punch that annihilates the'
common garden variety of stupidity.
For instance, just at hand, W. Jby

Uretz thanks to Rodgers (I missed
Rodgers because I was hors du com
bat in a hospital), and Mr. R.'s "Po&
