THE LESSER EVIL All evil is
either relatively good or relatively
bad. All reform is gained by evolu
tion or revolution.
We go upstairs one step at a time.
We establish a republic, we free the
negroes, we free the Cubans, we free
all women gradually by universal
suffrage, we gradually eliminate the
liquor interests. We are only half
way up stairs. We must yet solve
the marriage trust and the religious
trust We must yet change a lot of
our dogmas, bigoted ideas and laws
that are a crime against the laws of
..There is an unequal distribution of
husbands and wages. All single folks
are forced to lead the artificial life
while the members of the marriage
trust are permitted to serve the laws
of nature or abuse them as they see
fit. As a rule, they are permitted to
commit race suicide at least 60 per
cent of the time.
Some commit it all the time, but
practically all commit it some of the
time. The religious trust stands right
back of them whether they have as
many children as Brigham Y6ung or
don't have any. The members of the
marriage trust represent half or less
than half of all grown-up people at
any one time.
As a rule, single folks dedicate
their lives to the aid of the marriage
trust in caring for their children as
teachers, in the religious field work
ing for less wages, etc Members of
this huge octopus make all the laws
and stand ready to "crucify" all sin
gle folks caught enjoying the special
privileges they themselves enjoy.
Reputable physicians may call on
members of the marriage trust, pass
Jhem Jnto eternity with appejad&Jtis,
nervous breakdown, etc., but if a sin
gle girl tries to shield her name from
the mob by an abortion or with drugs
and happens to miss it the doctors'
trust, the marriage trust, the relig
ious and so-called morals trust in
cluding politics, turns on her and her
"underground railroad" to try for
No quarter is given by these mo
nopolists, who control wages and who
shall enter the marriage trust, who
shall be legitimate or who shall be
illegitimate. As a result of all this
defiance of God's natural laws, and
substitution of the artificial, we have,
generally speaking, children born in
wedlock with the assistance of three
doctors, a nurse plus a drug store and
three weeks of dangerous sickness.
But in Germany where they save
everything and say "let the babies
come," we find the women having
her baby in the forenoon and return
ing to the hay field in the afternoon,
legitimate or otherwise. Germany is
healthy first and modest afterward.
Here is this country the scorn of so
called civilization drives our girls to
be modest first and never healthy.
Science recognizes the appetite of
sex as much as the other instincts
and child-births as essential to the
best health of women, but the relig
ious trust does not They would lose
their graft if they did. Nature is
bound to win. Look at England, ar
tificial as she is, and 1 healthy in 22,
but Germany, natural and healthy, 1
in 7. Nature wins. Allen Steven,

RACE EQUALITY. Through the
columns of the most educative news
paper ever published I would like to
answer D. M. P.'s questions asked
in The Day Book of May 29.

negro associating with a white wom
