GOING AFTER US. It would be
clear waste of good space to go into
details of the U. S. industrial commis
sion's committee report on the Stand
ard Oil strike at Bayonhe, N. J.
Briefly put, the committee found
that the Standard Oil Co. of New
Jersey pays enormous profits and
wages too low to maintain a family
on healthful basis; that the company
imported thugs from New York city
and immediately upon their arrival
at Bayonne the shooting and cutting
began; that the employes are not per
mitted to unionize or have any rep
resentation of themselves collectively.
This is Standard Oil policy every
where, and long known to be such,
but what is more important is the
declaration by the committee that
the Standard Oil managers "an
nounce their intention to enter the
field of industrial relations with a
view to widening their Influence and
activity, propagating such policies."
Given rope enough, the Standard
will make all of us slaves, to be sup
pressed by hired thugs, and here's no
tice that the Standard has set out
to accomplish this.
WOMAN'S GAIN. The women of
Russia are finding some recompense
for the sting of war.
Because of the shortage of men
the council of ministers has approv
ed a plan to throw open the doors of
cjertain state universities to women
and they are to be admitted to the)
law, scientific and medical schools
for the first time.
Russian women are noted for their
intellectuality. Given this equal op
portunity with man there will arise in
Russia a new and irresistible force
which will aid the Slav nation to wim
to the topmost heights of economic
and political greatness during the
era of world peace and progress
which must surely follow this war.
CONVICT RECRUITS. A dis
patch from Lauzanne says that the
Austrian emperor has released 96
life-time convicts from prison on con
dition that they join, the army and
go to the front.
Prom the beginning of things this
same step has been taken in war
times, and upon each occasion it has
been demonstrated over and ovei

rape and pillage, or who shoot theft"
